The committee spawned multiple subcommittees, painstakingly mapping every moment of a week-long birthday celebration. In all, 48 members of the community have participated on these committees, said Dana Boyer of the Centennial Celebration committee. So if you think this is coming from a couple of people, it is not. The celebration kicks off next Friday, June 28 and continues through July 5 and will include a special July Fourth reworks display, which Boyer, who has raised private funds to put on the reworks, will be at least a $15,000 display. The birthday festivities will have something special each day, from a parade on Friday recognizing prominent families and individuals to an alumni basketball game on July 5 at the former Washington High School gym. There will be interactive light shows, music, a family day, outdoor movies in the park, a car show, birthday cake and a display of a timeline tracing in photos the history of Port St. Joe. The thing we want people to understand is we want everybody who was born here, raised here or lived here to participate, said Mayor Mel Magidson. There is something for everyone. Boyer said the committee had raised more than $26,000 in cash and in-kind donations for the event. We would not be where we are without these in-kind contributions, Boyer said. She said there was a possibility of another major sponsor and her numbers did not include pro t from the sale of commemorative coins. The coins sales have gone well, Magidson said. We have covered the cost of the coins and whatever more we make will go to the event. After the event, the committee will publish an 80-page softcover book of historic and celebration photos. Whatever we spent money on (such as the timeline) it wasnt for a one-shot deal, Boyer said. We wanted to be able to use it year after year. Boyer also urged those joining the celebration to visit one of two Facebook pages. The Centennial Celebration has a page and there is another page titled, If you grew up in Port St. Joe, you remember which includes recollections from current and former residents. The Port St. Joe Centennial Celebration also has a web site with full schedule of events. A schedule will also be published in next weeks edition of The Star.PSJRA MOVECalling a morning workshop on a city/county interlocal agreement (see story A2) productive during which a lot was resolved commissioners moved to approve the move of the Port St. Joe Redevelopment Agency to the Local Color Chamber of Commerce building. Commissioner Rex Buzzett made the motion in good faith in hopes that the city and county will work through differences on the interlocal agreement. Travel request brings questionsBy TIM CROFT227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@starfl.com Months ago County Commissioner Joanna Bryan asked the Clerk of Courts for travel records pertaining to commissioners, staff and several annual conferences. When the records were provided for public viewing during the last regular meeting of the Board of County Commissioners, at least two commissioners wondered about their accuracy. Bryan made her request earlier this year after presented with a board motion to approve travel by Commissioner Warren Yeager in advance, providing a blanket approval for travel to speci c meetings. At the time, before voting, Bryan asked the Clerks of ce to provide travel numbers for county attendance for the Florida Association of Counties annual meeting, the annual convention of the National Association of Counties and the Florida Small Counties Coalition. She wanted those records for the previous two scal years. What the Clerks of ce provided, budget and nance ofcer Sherry Herring said, was the travel of all county staff, commissioners in-county travel and travel to those three conferences as well as a breakdown by district. However, Herring said the system she was trying to pull information from was only as good as the information that was put in the system and that left her efforts to answer Bryans questions constrained. The breakdown by district, she said, could be off due to the way the system is set up and how and who uses county credit cards to pay for the travel.Hearing looms large for Port AuthorityBy TIM CROFT227-7827 |@PSJ_Startcroft@starfl.comA hearing next month will have signi cant impact, for better or worse, on development at the Port of Port St. Joe. The hearing, scheduled for July 17 before Circuit Court Judge Shonna Gay Young, is on a motion to foreclose on 67 acres of port land brought by Capital City Bank. Both sides seek summary judgment, meaning there is no dispute of material legal facts. The bank seeks foreclosure due to a $4.3 million loan in arrears the Port Authority has not made a payment on principle in at least two years. The Port Authoritys defense is that the body lacked authority, under state law, to mortgage public property without a public referendum in the rst place. A decision, port attorney Tom Gibson said, would not be expected immediately. The most likely outcome is the judge makes no decision that day, Gibson said. The 67 acres represents the ports barge terminal, the bulkhead and uplands. The improvements to the property, in the millions, came from state and federal grant funds. Port Authority members have publicly and consistently stated the intent to pay the debt, but currently there is no revenue. The hearing complicates a request from the Board of County Commissioners. During recent meetings, several commissioners have pressed the port about a $199,000 economic development loan a fraction of 1 percent of funds received by the port in the past decade the port received last year. Port Authority Chairman Leonard Costin appeared before the BOCC a few weeks ago to inquire if the debt payment schedule could be amended due to the ports current lack of revenue. The Port Authority has 10 months to make the initial payment. County Commissioner Ward McDaniel asked if the Port Authority would be willing to consider as collateral a mortgage on the old Arizona Chemical property; 100 acres and infrastructure donated to the Port Authority by the parent company of Arizona Chemical. I understand where they are coming from but I dont see any reason to restructure the agreement, said board member Patrick Jones, who has long expressed opposition to any encumbrances of Arizona DAN CHRISTIE | Special to The StarThe sunset over St. Joseph Bay had a particular glow this past Sunday as Fathers Day drew to a close.

After sniping over an interlocal agreement for months, commissioners spent 90 minutes poring over the document in order to agree on any revisions. No decisions were made at what was a workshop. And no agreement was reached on the two central issues: amending the interlocal to change how a re tax for WindMark Beach is collected and the moving of the Port St. Joe Redevelopment Agency from the Gulf County Tourist Development Council Welcome Center, which is leased to the TDC by the city. Near the conclusion of the workshop, County Commissioner Joanna Bryan urged city commissioners to allow the PSJRA, which is currently paying rent for two ofce spaces and is largely operating out of boxes, to move by the end of June. Bo Spring, a director on the PSJRA board, said he would make a motion at the PSJRAs meeting on Thursday to allow the move and hoped the city would be supportive (See related story A1). When asked by the county earlier this year to allow the move, the city of Port St. Joe balked for several reasons and asked the county to revisit the re tax issue, which the city urged should be divided among the three volunteer re departments that respond to WindMark Beach. The development of WindMark Beach and annexation by the city resulted in the interlocal agreement the two sides signed in 2005. The city sought an amendment to the re tax issue almost two years ago, said Mayor Mel Magidson. He said the county request to move the PSJRA provided an opening to again broach the subject. He said Bryans assertion that the re tax and PSJRA move were linked was far-fetched. And he noted that the countys response to the citys request was to allow the city to collect the re tax in return for conveying to the county the land on which the Welcome Center sits and the city taking over re protection in Oak Grove, an unincorporated area. Now, those two are not linked to the interlocal agreement, Magidson said. Id like to be treated the way the county wants to be treated. Bryan countered that she was not talking about linkage as much as logic. She said elected ofcials must be stewards of every tax dollar and it made no logical sense to continue to hold up the PSJRA move. City Commissioner Rex Buzzett said he was the commissioner who broached the PSJRA move, in large part because he did not want PSJRA operational costs to increase due to the move. He said the lease agreement for the Welcome Center a provision the county provide space to the Chamber and PSJRA, to which it was not adhering. He also noted the city has gone deeply in debt meeting the provisions of the interlocal. We have agreements and we are both going to have to live by these agreements, Buzzett said. Lets keep working on these agreements. Yeager added, We do have agreements but we havent always bound to them. The re tax issue was among 15 items commissioners reviewed with attorneys, staff and the public present. In general, there was much common ground on the majority of the 15 items, some remain to be further eshed out, better dened or amended in their entirety. That included a guarantee that all users of the citys water and sewer, in the city limits or out, are charged identically. Bryan, as she did at the previous BOCC meeting, was hesitant about amending the agreement at all. The city wanted to annex WindMark Beach and agreed to these provisions, Bryan said. I think this is a big issue to go in and change this agreement. City attorney Tom Gibson noted that the agreement was likely most important to Bryan because her predecessor representing District 3 drew up much of the agreement on the county side. Much of what is in here is because (former commissioner) Mr. (Bill) Williams wanted it in there, Gibson said. Commissioners will be provided a revised document, based on comments made Tuesday, in the coming weeks to consider for a formal vote. I appreciate everyone coming, Yeager said. Its been a productive workshop. Most of our constituents are the same. It behooves us all for us to work together.PSJ, county workshop interlocalBy TIM CROFT227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@starfl.com The announced overhaul of medical services at the Wewahitchka Gulf Department Health Clinic begins July 1. The last day the Florida Department of Health will provide primary care medical services at the clinic, located on State 22, will be June 30, a Sunday. As of the following day, the medical clinic will be closed for approximately two weeks. Roger Hall, president of Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf, told the Board of County Commissioners last week that he expects Sacred Heart will restart primary care services sometime in mid-July. We are actually going to expand the services from what they are now, Hall told commissioners. We should be back up and running by mid-July; as soon as we can get our people in there. Primary care services include acute and chronic illness visits, well-child and sick visits for children, Behavioral Health and lab collections for Health Department patients. The Florida Department of Health for Gulf County will continue to provide public health services through the transition. Dental services for adults and children, environmental health, Healthy Start, School Health and Tobacco Cessation and Prevention programs will continue during the transition. WIC will continue to have a presence the rst and third Friday of each month and immunizations will also be done those two days. Family planning services will continue to be offered the rst Tuesday of each month. Birth certicates will continue to be provided. I have advocated that there be no interruption of services to the north end of the county, said Marsha Lindeman, executive director of the Gulf County Health Department. Services are being increased for primary care by the provider most able to provide those services. Lindemans bottom line for primary care services has bled $500,000 over recent years due to budget cuts to primary care services by the Florida Department of Health. Compounding the problem is that the Wewahitchka clinic has been without a physician for two years, with the resultant drop in fees and, she said last week, she inherited budget which funded services with dollars she wasnt going to be able to ledger anymore. With the Federally Qualied Health Clinic (FQHC) operating under the umbrella of the Gulf County Health Department, Lindeman can leverage federal funds to provide dental care on both ends of the county and primary care in Port St. Joe. Over 50 percent of those seen under the FQHC are uninsured, she noted. Lindeman said the county pays a smaller percentage to the Health Department budget than any other county in the state with an operating FQHC. The only area she could cut, she told the BOCC last week, was primary care in Wewahitchka. But, the positive was the long-standing partnership between Health Department and Sacred Heart which stretches back to before Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf opened more than three years ago. Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf will operate a health clinic from the same health department facility currently in use for primary care services. I felt this was the optimal plan for providing primary care services, Lindeman said. Medical Records Release forms are available now at the Gulf County Health Department for patients transitioning from the health department to Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf for Primary Care Services. For more information please contact the Gulf County Health Department at 227-1276, ext. 205. Changes at Wewahitchka Health Department begin July 1

She noted that during the time period involved, two newly-elected commissioners, Commissioners Ward McDaniel and Tan Smiley, might not have been issued their county credit cards and others may have paid for trips. She also said she would receive vouchers with only the name of a hotel on it, but no indication about the circumstances of the stay. She had more than one travel voucher that does not state what it is for. Herring agreed with commissioners who suggested the BOCC and Clerks ofce look at the way travel forms are coded and how information is entered into the Clerks system. McDaniel disputed the accuracy of the numbers and noted that taxpayer dollars were involved. This is peoples money, McDaniel said. In an email to Bryan, Herring noted the restrictions she was operating under. Given our resources I have attached the best summary I am able to provide in this time frame, Herring wrote on April 9, roughly two months after Bryans request. Herring also noted that the outof-county travel numbers were solely for the conferences requested. As we discussed, I have broken down the commissioners travel by the conferences you specically requested, Herring continued. Doing so for other departments and/or additional conferences would take additional time. Herring said during the board meeting that while district numbers might skew depending on circumstances, The overall totals are correct. Overall, commissioners spent $31,846.77 in 2011 and over $32,000 in 2012 to travel to the FAC, NACO and SCC meetings, as well as what is noted as other travel which involves only Yeager ($2,133 in 2011; $5,133 the next year) and former Commissioner Bill Williams ($4,116 in 2011; $8,471 in 2012). Commissioner Carmen McLemore did not attend any conferences, but the four other commissioners attended the FAC and NACO conferences and the Clerks records indicate the county administrator and attorney also attended. In addition, the ve commissioners combined to spend $24,740 in 2011 and $23,413 in 2012 for incounty travel, with Williams and McLemore each claiming at least $6,000 in 2011 in-county travel alone. In addition, staff travel, in-county or not, totaled $66,579 in 2011 $26,670 is labeled Other General Fund Travel which is paid from the same fund from which commissioners are paid and $75,937 in 2012. In 2012, $33,556 of that travel again was labeled Other General Fund Travel and was paid from the same fund as commissioners. That put the narrow travel totals provided by the Clerk, restricted to the three major conferences, incounty and staff travel, at $123,166 in 2011 and $131,458 in 2012. I think we need to look at how we can improve on keeping track of expenses, Bryan said. I think we need to make some improvements.Agenda changesThe BOCC also got its rst look at a proposed process for crafting the agenda, which would require commissioners to place items on the agenda by a deadline or seek approval of a super-majority (four votes) at the beginning of the meeting to amend the agenda to include any additional items requiring a vote. In seeking that amendment, the commissioner must explain the purpose for inclusion in the agenda. The process would be similar for staff to bring an item to the BOCC after deadline, but the request for an amendment must come from a commissioner. Any request from the public that arrived after the deadline would follow the same procedure. The document was drafted by county attorney Jeremy Novak. The goal is to increase public awareness and transparency regarding the issues and topics to be discussed, the policy stated. Bryan asked that commissioners review the policy and come back with suggested revisions at the next BOCC meeting. TRAVEL from page A1Chemical parcel. The county is second in line behind Capital City Bank on the mortgage for the barge terminal parcel. The Circuit Court hearing will impact the countys position. Should the bank prevail, the countys position is moot. Should the port prevail, it would be unlikely, Gibson noted, that any port property could be mortgaged without a public referendum. I cant tell you you will have the power to give anybody a mortgage, Gibson said. Board member Eugene Rafeld suggested and the board agreed to ask the BOCC if the Port Authority could delay any decision until after the foreclosure hearing. We are very concerned and want to pay everything that we owe, Rafeld said. But we cant make a decision until after Capital City Bank is addressed. We want (the BOCC) in the loop. They have to be responsible for that money. We need to be good stewards. The county dollars are federal economic development dollars meant to be a revolving loan program by which the BOCC awards the money to various businesses for expansion or development. When the money is repaid it is awarded to another eligible entity. Rafeld Fisheries used the same funds to expand its freezer capacity at its sh house.Dredging/Master PlanGibson and port director Tommy Pitts told the board the update to the master plan was completed and the Port Authority board formally adopted the plan and forwarded it to the city of Port St. Joe. The city must hold public hearings before its planning board and commission as part of the process of updating the citys comprehensive plan to include the new port master plan. Pitts said he asked the two engineering rms on continuing contract with the Port Authority to submit statements of qualications specic to maintenance dredging. Pitts said the aim was to dredge to a minimum of 33 feet with the hope of ultimately going to the federallyauthorized 35 feet. That opens up all kind of opportunities, Pitts said, adding that however the foreclosure hearing was decided, an operational deepwater port is key to development. Rafeld wondered, as he did at the prior board meeting, if the Tourist Development Council should be brought into the loop. There is potential some dredge material could be suitable for beach nourishment, he said. I have always considered beach renourishment as a secondary benet of dredging, Pitts said. Meeting with MontfordCostin said he had a meeting Gov. Rick Scotts ofce with Scotts chief of staff and state Sen. Bill Montford (R-Tallahassee), who represents Gulf County. Montford had attempted to work with Capital City Bank to secure a $2 million state appropriation to partially address the port mortgage and allow time for port development to take hold. Costin said the meeting was positive, that it was informational as he related how dynamics changed since collaboration with the St. Joe Company to develop the port was etched in writing. The concern from the governor, Costin indicated, was the lack of tangible progress over recent years despite the investment of millions of state and federal dollars. Costin said he provided information and emerged from the meeting, scheduled for 15 minutes but spanning nearly an hour, with optimism the port message, a different one from as little as two years ago, was conveyed.Board communicationsPitts addressed board members concerning a letter to the editor from board member Johanna White published in The Star two weeks ago. Pitts, who outside of administrative dollars in a grant to update the master plan works for $1 per month, said he had not formally responded publicly and had hoped White who was absent attended the meeting in order to be able to talk directly. Pitts said he believed the letter incorrectly implied that he led the board instead of taking direction from the Port Authority board. Jones asked, motioned and the board approved including Pitts complete response to Whites letter into the regular meeting minutes. Costin said the board should handle such matters internally. More than a year ago, shortly after the collaboration agreement with St. Joe was signed, Costin and Gibson emphasized the importance of port ofcials speaking with unied voice and message. PORT from page A1 SETTING IT STRaAIGHTIn last weeks story concerning the hiring of a new city clerk in Mexico Beach, it was stated that the council was deciding between two candidates, Sharon McGhee and Christina Marquardt Adams, who was identied without her married name. Adams was not a formal candidate for the position. She had applied during the interview process and during a special meeting the week prior Mayor Al Cathey, with the support of Councilmember Bobby Pollock expressed a desire to interview Adams. The 2-2 vote cited in last weeks story was on a motion to hire McGhee. The Star regrets any confusion.

I wanted to be an auctioneer. It was amazing how the words and sounds just rolled off their tongues. You could get a good dose of the mesmerizing calls every Saturday and Wednesday afternoons out at the old Tri County Stockyards. It seemed to my little ten year old mind to be some type of controlled pandemonium. They would be running cows, steers, bulls, sheep, hogs and/or Billy goats into that sawdust covered area just as fast as humanly possible. A short pause lasted only long enough to let the auctioneer wield his magic, a few hands to rise and the nod of a head or two to bobble in the wrap around audience. That animal was sold and you better get your eyes focused quickly on the gate to the far left the next lot was being herded in. I tried to take it all in at once! It was fun to guess how high the bid would go on certain breeds. Bulls, without question, brought the most money. And a lot more cows were sold than anything else. Hog prices, according to Dad, hinged on whether we were buying... or selling! Ive seen bulls near bout leap into the crowd. Ive seen hogs chase handlers around the arena. Ive seen mules sit down right in the middle of the auction and refuse to get up. I saw a cow once start into labor right on the sales oor. The folks in the audience were often more fun to watch than the four legged guys in the arena. Half of them showed up every time the sales doors opened and never bid on a thing. I reckon grown-ups liked to hear the auctioneer too. Or maybe, they had an old heifer or a young yearling they were trying to handicap as to value. Things moved a mite slow back in the mid fties. Perhaps this was simply the best action in town. The seating arrangements were kinda like church. People apparently were assigned to the same place sale after sale. The aggressive bidders usually were down on the rst row. They would bid early and often but didnt buy as much as you might think. A late nod from the back row would take a steer home quicker than you could say, What are you going to give for it... Some guys waved frantically like they were proud to be bidding. Or they didnt want the auctioneer, or you, to miss the fact that they had cash money and were ready to deal. Some did it with a slight raise of one nger. Another might drop his head slightly. And still another might move his head up just enough to make direct eye contact with the auctioneer. The guy behind the mike didnt miss a one. Without question, he was in charge. And he seldom slowed the tempo. I just could not believe that anyone could talk so rapidly without seemingly ever taking a breath. And he did it all in some type of rhythm that kept perfect time with the braying of the livestock, the ruckus of the handlers prodding and turning the sales objects, the calls for popcorn and cold drinks ringside and the general din that accompanied any place that had a large audience actively participating in the ongoing proceedings. The auctioneer would only slow the pace if the price wasnt to his liking. Comeon now, youre not looking at this one. Take a good long gander at her anks, the straight back, the general size of her, shell throw calves half grown! Were at sixty two, fty, wholl give me seventyve, I need seventyve... It wasnt quite as good as the circus but it didnt miss it by much. And it didnt cost nothing, unless you ran your ngers through your hair at exactly the wrong moment! I asked Dad once why they only held these wonderful sales on Saturdays and Wednesdays. I was expecting him to explain it took a while to round up the appropriate animals to sell. Son, he didnt hesitate, two days a week is about all they can stand. On what do you want to be day in elementary school I never picked doctor, lawyer or reman. I proudly proclaimed that I was going into the auctioneering business. Id fall asleep on Saturday nights rehearsing, Well, Im at twentyve here, wholl give me thirty, I got thirty, wholl make forty, wholl give forty, Ive got thirty now, wholl bid... I took a job with Colonel James T. Birddog Reed as a recorder when I was in high school. He auctioned off house and farm estates. Id write down Zenith table model as he began to tell how this particular radio could bring in the Grand Ole Opry a week ahead of time and then hed go into that familiar chant. Id put down Mr. Chadwick and the amount he paid when the gavel fell. Wouldnt it be great to come back from auctioneer school and take Mr. Martins place at the Tri County Stockyards! Or I could go into business with Birddog hawking those old lamps, wringer washers and China cabinets. My parents insisted on college. They preferred English and biology over hogs and Dutch ovens. It was probably just as well. Tri County Stockyards went out of business years ago... and people dont do much auctioning at yard sales now-a-days. But late at night, when everyone is asleep, or when Im alone in the car, Ill sell a Brahma bull, a lot of Black Angus or an old 175 International tractor. Old dreams die hard...Respectfully,Kes Most folks enjoy coffee in the morning. Most is accurate. According to statistics, about 100 million in America are daily coffee drinkers; percentagewise, that is over 50%. Therefore, most is accurate. It seems like a lot of people have turned to those single serving coffee machines with the little plastic cups that not only allow you make coffee on a whim, but also tea and hot chocolate. I have one of those, but the cost still bothers me. Im one of those people who will check the coffee pot for leftovers late at night and if there is any, Ill put it in the microwave. Ive also heard of folks keeping leftover coffee in the refrigerator. That makes sense, but I will usually drink it all by the end of the day anyway. At work, its a different story. The fellow who made our coffee nally retired. You know how it is; there is usually one person who is in charge of the coffee making. Sometimes, its a matter of pride or possibly even job security. The retired fellows coffee was actually not good. Im not being honest it was terrible, but I drank it. After he was gone, I found that things can get worse. The next person in charge of coffee made much worse coffee. It was so bad that it forced me to another oor of my building. The folks one oor below dont mind me coming down there; new paying customers are always welcome in an of ce coffee pool. There will always be those who dont pay. There was the added bonus that the downstairs coffee was only 20 cents. Their coffee is really not that good either, but I do not think that it will cause as much damage as the stuff on my oor. Also, the clientele one oor below is a little more interesting. They are more reclusive. In other words, they let you get your coffee and get out rather than engaging you in a conversation about politics or planar fasciitis. Everyone has their own way of collecting money for the of ce coffee. Downstairs, they simply have a red metal box with a little lock on it and one slot on the top to drop your money. For the rst few months, there was one older gentleman, who is affectionately known as Santa Claus who would wander in when I was getting coffee. Santa Claus never said much; sometimes he would grunt or just mumble. It wasnt an unhappy grunt; I think he was just trying to make conversation. Im sure that he has a Ph.D. in something very impressive and is doing some very important research. Seeing him walking down the hall one day behind me, I decided to have a little fun. As he came into the kitchen, I poured a cup of coffee and put my quarter in the red metal box. Then I stood staring at the red metal box. The red metal box has a little black and white plastic frog glued on top. The Santa Claus fellow seemed to be getting anxious. I continued to stand there in front of the coffee pot, staring at the red metal box. I waited a while longer. Finally, Santa Claus let go of a good grunt. Im pretty sure the translation of the grunt would be, Please move, I want my coffee now. I got down for a close examination of the red metal box as if to talk to the black and white plastic frog. Then I calmly said, I put a quarter in there and it still has not given me a nickel back. Then Santa Claus spoke and I could understand him. He said, I dont think it will. I did my best to look confused and I took my coffee and left. It was a good day; I got Santa Claus to talk. Im sure he thinks Im a nut, but thats ok. In the weeks that followed, the black and white plastic frog on the top of the little red metal box disappeared, coffee downstairs went up to 25 cents and then the frog reappeared. Santa Claus could be trying to tell me something or perhaps he was trying to lessen my anxiety about the red metal box not giving change. Im not so sure about what happened to the plastic frog, the coffee seems a little better downstairs, perhaps he had been swimming in the pot and nally got out.

Circulation:1-800-345-8688 CRANKS MY TRACTORBN Heard OPINION www.starfl.comThursday, June 20, 2013 APage 4SectionBy Ed McAteerSpecial to The Star Well, it is summertime and graduation has come and gone. For those who do not rush off to college, I am guessing mom and dad are probably encouraging you to get out and nd a job. And with that being said, I have some advice for you related to the job interview process. No, I am not going to bore you with the mechanics of how to build a resume, merely tell you what employers are looking for in todays work environment and prospective candidate. When starting a job search in todays tough times, many people still stick to re nement of their resume and honing their people skills. Thats good, but someone right out of high school probably doesnt have lots of experience. Strong interpersonal skills are great. Integrity matters. However, the thing that makes all the difference today is simply presenting you as someone who is a problem solver. How do I do this? The best way to train yourself as a problem solver is to research the industry [type of job you desire] and your prospective employer [company you want to work for] and take all the time you need to study about both. Study the employees and customers, suppliers, and business partners. Then, use all that background information that you found to inform yourself so that during the interview, you can be humble in knowing how the company functions and what made them successful. Talk your own passions and talents to the employers challenges; tell them how you can t right in from day one and help them make money, improve customer service, and help solve problems. Do this and you have an opening for a real opportunity to be successful in empowering you for the position. This is important so listen. There is a downside to this strategy. The research required involves so much time and so much effort that only one out of every ten people will even take the time to do it. Are you the one or the other nine? I have never known anyone who has ever taken this advice, prepared themselves by doing the hard work up front and not been hired into the position they were seeking. I often tell those I helped write resumes the number-one thing you need to do is to set up a routine whereby every day make the resume writing and job search your job. Spend two to four hours a day writing and researching to make the difference. Grow yourself powerful and smarter than the person you will be competing against. Something else that is very hard for a young graduate is to take feedback or criticism from someone. You think you know it all when you are young. You dont. When someone is giving you feedback, make him or her feel that it is okay to do so. Let them know that you accept feedback readily and can listen to them with your full intent. If you act defensively, get angry, or pushed back, your advisor will make a note to self: I wont be doing this again. When you make it hard for others to give you feedback, your colleagues, and friends will avoid you. It will help if you think of feedback as simply data and keep it in perspective. You want to combine it with hundreds of other pieces of information but do not supercharge any one piece of it. Adults, want to give feedback to others? The number-one rule of constructive criticism is to make the other person feel safe. You have to let that person know that you care about his or her success while you address their concerns. Also, let me tell the young graduate, there is nothing more important than the incredible impact of compound interest when it comes to saving for retirement. Would you like to have $1 million by the time you reach retirement, usually age 65? You can but it takes discipline. If only someone would have told me about these things when I was 18. About age 18-22, you only need to save three to ve dollars each day. It isnt a lot of money. Skip the soda, cigarettes, or Starbucks coffee and stash the cash. You have to be thoughtful and save every day. So graduate, when you get that job that you have prepared for, remember to take three to ve dollars for your future, and when you are older and wiser, you will awaken one morning and say, Hey, where did all this money come from? It really works. Again, only one of you in nine people will even think about this ever again, less more, do the action that is required. You have to gure out the difference between your wants and your needs. I want many things, but I need very little. My pastor, David Fernandez a few years back told his congregation, we did not need 90 percent of what we have. He started giving away, downsized, and became happier than ever. I did a quick look at my material possessions, and he was right. Most things are luxury and not needed. I learned a lesson, and I do not buy things to impress other people; it is about the things that I need. So when you go into a store, always take that extra second to picture in your mind how disappointed you will be if you do not make that purchase. On the other hand, sleep on it. Most of the time when using that train of thought, you will simply not buy the item. I would be remiss if I did not tell you to try to do good things for others. Giving of your free time or nances well, you cannot out give God, and he richly blesses those who give without restraint and with a cheerful heart. Pray about it and then test him and see for yourself. Graduates today are going to need to save at a greater rate than the generations that have gone before you. Make certain when you are hired in that great job, sign up for the 401(k) plan, especially if it matches all or part of what you contribute and stay in it for as long as you can. Its called getting free money from See MCATEER A5

Ed McAteer is a resident of Port St. Joe .Why the rush?Dear Editor, At the June 11 regular meeting of the Gulf County BOCC a recommendation was made by Assistant County Administrator, Michael Hammond, for the Gulf County Detention Facility to assume control and responsibility for Gulf County probation services and the pretrial release program. This memorandum was neatly placed in the Consent Agenda packet. Had Commissioner Ward McDaniel not pulled the recommendation for discussion by the full Board, this recommendation (like so many others) would have quietly been approved by the Board without any open discussion for the bene t of the public. Commissioners McDaniel and Bryan voiced their concerns regarding this operational change. Overriding all logic, a 3-2 vote approved Mr. Hammonds recommendation. No opportunity was given by Chairman Smiley for public input before the vote was taken. So, without any public input and no plan, probation services will soon be provided in-house by county staff. Mr. Hammond states in his memorandum that, Following my review and analysis of the current program, I submit the foregoing recommendations based on the understanding and assumption that our current correctional facility staff will administer the programs without need for additional personnel from the County Commission. How so? Will one employee handle the program? Or will several share the duties? How much spare time do jail employees have available to take on additional duties? Where is Mr. Hammonds review and analysis? He submitted a recommendation to the BOCC without any details of how this operational change will work. He stated during the meeting that the program can be run more ef ciently in-house but did not give any details. What liability issues will result for the County with this change? Do we have certi ed staff to provide all the probation and pretrial services required? How much money is Mr. Hammond projecting as a revenue stream for the County? During Mr. Hammonds comments I did not hear any estimate of income for the County. Mr. Stewart from Florida Probation Service gave lots of numbers during his comments I cannot attest to their accuracy but he had numbers. So many questions remain unanswered. Most disturbing to me was Commissioner Yeagers rush to get this voted on that day. What was the urgency? Commissioner Yeager stated he had been in discussion with staff for 2-3 months and they have convinced me this will work. How did Mr. Butler and Mr. Hammond convince him? Where is the plan? Commissioner Bryan suggested the item be tabled until Mr. Hammond could present the Board with written information on how this program will work Commissioner Yeager would have none of it. Whats the back story here? All the fees generated go to the Clerks of ce to help support the court system. This operational change will not reduce taxpayer burden by one red cent. In fact, I believe this will be an abysmal failure it will cost taxpayers money, collection rates will go down and open the door for potential lawsuits against the County. Florida Probation Service is a group of trained professionals. Mr. Hammond alluded to some problems with the running of the program. From his speci c complaints I would conclude the problems are of a clerical nature and can easily be resolved between the Clerks of ce and Mr. Stewarts of ce. It was obvious, as the discussion between Mr. Hammond and Mr. Stewart progressed, that Mr. Hammond has other issues with Mr. Stewart. I found Mr. Hammonds verbal attack on Mr. Stewart extremely unprofessional and certainly in violation of the Countys pledge of civility. It was quite a contrast from just a few months ago when the BOCC warmly applauded the great work that had been done by Florida Probation Service. Mr. Hammond said, If we make $1 its better than what youre making today because youre not making anything. I question the accuracy of that statement. Florida Probation Service currently pays $750 per month ($9,000 per year) to rent an of ce in the Wewahitchka Sheriffs sub-station plus provides free internet service for the sub-station. The monthly internet fee is $200 per month $2,400 per year. The rental income and free internet will be gone. Sheriff Harrison stated in the June 11 meeting that it will be dif cult to keep the sub-station open without the money from Florida Probation Service. The sub-station is important to the citizens of Wewahitchka they deserve a law enforcement presence in the northern part of Gulf County. Another wrong-headed decision was made by the BOCC June 11. This takes me back to the vote on moving Public Works to Howard Creek; the vote had to be taken that day. That was a bad decision then and this is a bad decision now. Commissioners Smiley, McLemore and Yeager, your bad judgment will cost the people of Gulf County. Commissioner Yeager, waiting two weeks to at least see a written proposal surely cant be too much to ask at the end of the day.Barbara RadcliffIndian Pass P. S. Since the June 11 meeting, the County Attorney has sent a letter to Florida Probation Service requesting they remain on the job until October 1, 2013. All the more curious why the vote had to be taken June 11 if the County wants Florida Probation Service to remain on the job 3 months longer. The contract allows for a 60-day out clause. Again, why the rush to push through this decision?Value perceived or deceived? Dear Editor, Commissioner Joanna Bryan asked months ago for the travel and expense accounting for all the commissioners in an honest transparent effort to determine not only what the real costs are but who they are going to and inevitably a justi cation for all the out of county expenses. In other words, what did we get out of this cost? When we send a commissioner or county representative to a function like the Florida Association of Counties, are we getting what we paid for and what did the investment bring back to the county besides a fake smile, hot air and a fun trip for a public servant? The request was nally answered at the last commission meeting with alarming costs that we have paid and learned that the accounting system needs a little tweaking to accurately tell the public speci cally where our money went. Mrs. Sherry Herring seemed to have her hands tied by existing procedures that made her task dif cult if not impossible at best as she tried to explain in the meeting. If we have improper procedures, wonder was has been happening or missed in the past? Historically, Gulf County took few if any trips and was never involved with the Florida Association of Counties or any other Associations. We have all been told that it is important to spend these dollars to send our Representatives to make sure our community is recognized and not left out of the mysterious Pots of Money being passed around. It has been several years, thousands of our dollars and we can see no monetary return of one dollar let alone the hypothetical Pots of Money. We would be the rst to support making sure we get recognition with the State especially if you could convince us that if we spend $1,000 we will get that back plus some more. In respect to the RESTORE money, we will get money from that in spite of the trips and it may be that these trips hampered the process of receiving funds and the amount. However, when the funds do appear from whatever effort you can be assured that certain county commissioners will claim the credit when it is not theirs to claim. Typical politics by those who know how to work the system to their favor and not ours. What it appears we are doing with the luxurious trips is providing our public servants with an open check book for vacations and an opportunity for them to advance their personal political agenda, not ours. This is more than evident by a past commissioner who wormed his way to the Chair of the Florida Association of Counties, left here in nancial ruin and is now working in Tallahassee as a lobbyist. How did that help us? Chasing Pots of Money is for the adventuresome and nancially stable. It is not advisable if you are in the red as indicated at the last talk of the county budget and cutting back on people and services for the community. We say, Show me the Money these trips earned us and provide proof that the suffering our community services and reduction in people was worth it. We do not think you can. Gulf County needs to cut back its travel and expense over 80 percent. It is not necessary to travel this much and it is a proven a waste of money.Citizens Improving Gulf County By JASON ALDERMANOne of the pitfalls of Congress passing complicated, sweeping legislation is that sometimes provisions designed to protect one group unexpectedly create hardships for others. Thats what happened with 2009s Credit Card Accountability Responsibility Disclosure (CARD) Act, which was hailed as legislation that would protect consumers from misleading credit practices. Among other things, the CARD Act requires that people under 21 must have an adult co-signer in order to open a credit account unless they can prove their ability to repay their account balance. This provision was designed to prevent young adults from assuming more debt than they can afford and then being unable to pay it off, thereby ruining their credit standing. So far, so good. Then, in 2011 the Federal Reserve nalized rules around the CARD Acts ability to pay provision. It stated that credit card issuers generally could only consider an applicants independent income or assets before issuing a new card or increasing a credit limit, not his or her access to the households overall income. An unintended consequence soon emerged: As a result of the ability-topay rule, many spouses or partners over age 21 who dont work outside the home suddenly found they were unable to open separate credit accounts in their own name, regardless of whether or not they had access to their working spouse/partners income. Establishing ones own credit history is crucial to gaining favorable interest rates and access to credit, especially when non-working spouses get divorced or their spouse dies unexpectedly. Thus many consumers (and their Congressional representatives) were upset. Their displeasure reached the ears of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). Fast forward to October 2012, when the CFPB released a proposal that was expected to ease credit rules for stay-athome spouses or partners. After six months of public review, the CFPB issued a formal amendment to the ability-to-pay rule that essentially says credit card applicants who are at least 21 can factor in a third partys income or assets when applying for credit card accounts if theres a reasonable expectation theyll be able to access those funds to make payments. (This includes income of a spouse or partner, although the rule applies to all applicants, regardless of marital status.) Speaking of unintended consequences, however, remember that even though having at least one credit card or loan in your own name can help you build a strong credit history, its important to carefully manage all credit accounts on which youre named whether as an individual, cosigner or authorized user to prevent damage to your credit score. Having a poor credit score can cost a small fortune over a lifetime. Youll pay higher rates and have a harder time qualifying for mortgages, car loans and credit cards. To maintain or improve your credit score: Always pay all bills on time. Never exceed credit limits. Try to keep your credit utilization ratio (the percentage of available credit youre using) below 30 percent. Send your letters to : LETTERS TO THE EDITOR P.O.

By LOIS SWOBODA653-1819 | @ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com The 425 anglers who shed in the 25th annual Big Bend Saltwater Classic battled rough seas last weekend. Matt Lambert, chairman of the tournament, said several captains ended the day early on Saturday and fewer sh were weighed than last year. We still weighed a lot of sh though, Lambert said. Paul Osterbye, who shes out of Carrabelle every weekend, said his team experienced 6-8-foot waves for most of the day Saturday. Rough water didnt dampen everyones enthusiasm. Osterbyes 7-yearold granddaughter Jaylyn Middleton still managed to haul in more than 50 sh, though none made it onto the leaderboard. Aboard the Miss Carla, Dusty May of Port St. Joe took third place for points in the Masters Division with 255 points. Dusty also made a splash with a monster dolphin he snagged. At 24.9 pounds, the sh was almost twice as heavy as the next runner up. It was a real Fathers Day tournament this year. Aboard the Miss Carla, father Dusty May of Port St. Joe and sons Dusty Junior and Danny took third place for points in the Masters Division with 255 points. Dusty Junior also made a splash with a monster dolphin he snagged. At 24.9 pounds, the sh was almost twice as heavy as the next runner up. Also shing as a team were Mike, Gage and Riley Runyon of Crawfordville. Daddy Mike was glowing with pride during the Junior Division awards as he watched both boys receive medals. Nine-yearold Gage took rst place for a 17.3 pound snapper that set a record for the juniors. It was the only record set in this years competition. Little brother Riley hauled in a snapper that weighed almost eleven pounds to win third place. It was the boys rst tournament. Mateo La Sorsa of Orlando, shing in the Junior Division for the second time maintained his rst place status for grouper for the second year and took additional medals for snapper, king mackerel and Spanish mackerel. This year, the tournament changed its venue for the rst time since 2006. The competition was staged from the Moorings, the site of the original competition. The Moorings is where we started and, for our silver anniversary, we thought we would like to get back to our roots. Its a great space and a great staff. Lambert said. He said he plans to stage the competition at the Moorings again next year with very few changes. Lambert said despite having fewer sh to offer the charity auction, the awards on Sunday netted more than last year with more than $1,000 paid for unwanted sh donated for sale. Another change in this years competition was the introduction of voice stress analysis to spot check anglers and prevents the propagation of sh tales. According to Lambert, the tournament has used polygraph equipment for at least the four years he has served on the board. The voice stress analysis was used to screen potential polygraph subjects. It saves the tournament some money, Lambert said. Polygraph tests are more expensive. We just want to make sure the integrity of the tournament is intact. People will cheat if you let them. We try not to let them, he said. He said an angler who refuses a spot test will not receive his or her check but added the tournament has never had to withhold payment. As always, the Saltwater Classic bene ted the Organization for Arti cial Reefs (OAR). Founded in 1985, OAR serves the recreational saltwater shing industry of Floridas Big Bend Gulf Coast by promoting the professional development of public arti cial reefs. Since 1987, OAR has created or enhanced more than 30 named reefs in the Big Bend Gulf. OAR collaborates with cities and counties as well as state and federal governments to create and maintain arti cial reefs. OAR also collaborates with marine research agencies, other arti cial reef groups and the academic community. COMEJOINUSFORTHE... 4 TH OFJULY SIDEWALKSALE!

Repairs resulting from water intrusion and eventual rotting of the coring materials sandwiched between berglass. The damaged area should be opened up, damaged coring removed, new coring material, cut to t and ready to install. Remove the new piece of coring, grind bottom layer of original berglass, clean thoroughly with vacuum cleaner or blow out with compressed air. Wipe down area with acetone, apply un-thickened coat of epoxy or polyester resin to bottom surface and bottom surface of coring. Allow ve to 10 minutes to be absorbed. Apply second coat of thickened epoxy or resin, thicken with micrabaloons, collidal silica or West Systems adhesive ller (my preference) and reinstall coring piece. Pour thickened mixture around perimeter of coring to ll void. Next, wet out top of coring with un-thickened epoxy or resin, allow to be absorbed, apply three to four layers of woven roven berglass mat allowing to overlap beveled edges of original panel, three to ve inches. Apply mat, pour epoxy or resin and spread or brush until berglass mat is saturated and carefully push out any air bubbles/voids. Apply second and third layers of mat as we did with the rst. Allow several minutes for last layer to become slightly tacky. Make up a nal thickened mixture of epoxy or resin, pour onto top and brush or spread to conceal pattern of berglass mat. Allow 12-24 hours for materials to harden, wipe off top nish with soap and water and allow to dry. Now begin sanding with 60-80 grit paper, sand off high spots and any/all the gloss that has formed on top coat. Next week we will cover lling and sanding to conceal repair.

Big snapper are holding on near shore and offshore wrecks from 60-150 feet of water. Live bait will prove to be the best for bigger fish, however, snapper will eat cut bait as well. Try fishing 20 feet off the bottom with a live grunt or pinfish for a trophy red snapper. As the summertime weather patterns start to set in, bay fishing will be a game of early and late. Early morning top water action will produce nice trout and redfish catches. Late afternoon fishing will be mainly live bait and grubs and jigs, and as the water cools down, try switching back to a top water hard bait for a trophy redfish or trout. Flounder are showing up in the normal places this week from Mexico Beach to Indian Pass.SPONSORED BY

By WES LOCHER229-7843 |@PSJ_Star wlocher@star .com A 2009 graduate of Port St. Joe High School, Heather Brinkmeier is headed to Sydney, Australia, to compete in the Down Under Cup Challenge as part of the Australia International Softball Challenge in July. I had to read it twice, said Brinkmeier of the invitation she received in September of last year. Brinkmeier will y to Los Angeles on July 20 and take a connecting ight to Sydney the following day. Shell have two days in Australia to sight-see before jumping into a daily practice regimen with a team made up of complete strangers. Its exciting and nerve-wracking, she said of playing such a high-pro le tournament alongside girls shes never met. Im going to work my butt off. Shell have plenty of time to amp herself to meet her new teammates on the 15-hour ight. USA Athletes International works to bring the worlds athletes together though sports and education and chose 14 females from across the United States to gather as a team halfway across the globe to compete against players from Australia, Italy and Prague. The daughter of Steve and Christine, Brinkmeier was recommended to the team by her former coaches as well as those from opposing teams. Candidates also had to be in good academic standing. In high school, Brinkmeier was a four-year letter winner for Coach Jim Belin and helped the Lady Tiger Sharks to a runner-up nish in the state Class 2A Tournament her senior year when PSJ nished 27-3. She was third-team All-State as a senior out elder and had a home run and three RBIs in the regional title game; two hits and an RBI in the state semi nals. She hit .284 with ve doubles and two triples as a junior when she helped lead the Lady Tiger Sharks to a regional championship. While in high school she also played volleyball and basketball and was a member of the cheerleading squad. Further, Brinkmeier played travel ball for Team North Florida with Coach Coy Adkins, an assistant coach at University of Florida and now a coach at the University of Arkansas from 2006-08. The team placed 30th out of 165 teams at the 2006 nationals in Seattle. In 2007 the team placed third in the World Series and second in 2008. She was a member of the Panama City Lady Lightning with Coach Bubba Hill from 2006-10. The team won a USFA World Series in 2006. In junior college Brinkmeier played two seasons for head Coach Tommy McDaniel at Lurleen B. Wallace Community College in Andalusia, Ala., where she hit over .300 both years with a combined 14 home runs and 55 RBIs. She transferred to Florida Southern College in Lakeland but had a medical redshirt for the 2011-12 softball seasons because of a labrum tear in her right shoulder. She said she feels back to 100 percent. In her junior year she played all 49 games at rst base and had a elding percentage of .978 while rehabilitating. Though Brinkmeier is beyond excited for the Australian experience, shes unsure what competition she may face down under. When softball was an Olympic sport, Australia had one of the top teams, added Brinkmeier. Brinkmeier hopes that the experience will lead to additional travel opportunities or as a springboard into the coaching world. Its enough for me just to go there and compete, Brinkmeier said. Even if we lose, its about the experience but Im going to win. In addition to representing the United States and Port St. Joe at the tournament, shes also excited to get some relaxation in during the international trip. According to the itinerary, theyll teach us how to surf during the day, and well get to tour the zoo, Brinkmeier said. On June 22, a fundraiser will be held for Brinkmeier at the Rustic Sands campground from 4-10 p.m. CT featuring food, drinks, raf es and live music. Funds raised will go toward her ight to Los Angeles. PORT ST. JOE WEWAHITCHKA PORT ST.

What would that photographer see if he was transported to the present? By WES LOCHER229-7843 |@PSJ_Star wlocher@starfl.com For those keeping track of the upcoming Centennial Celebration activities, a kite flying contest had been added to the expansive list of events happening to celebrate the upcoming 100th birthday of Port St. Joe. The kite event will take place on Sunday, June 30 at George Core Park. The Centennial Celebration Committee, appointed by Mayor Mel Magidson in October, wanted to ensure that the events were full of family fun. Food plates with hamburgers or hotdogs will be served for $5 and trophies will be awarded for age categories eight and under, nine to 14 and 15-and-up. Prizes will be given away for highest flying kite, best homemade kite, best store bought kite and overall champion kite flyer. Also on hand will be carnival games including a football toss, basketball booth, corn hole, a hula hoop area and a water misting station to stay cool. The event is a joint fundraiser between the Gulf County Soccer Boosters, Port St. Joe Youth Soccer and Port St. Joe Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). We wanted to do something affordable and fun, said Mike Lacour, Financial Analyst at City Hall and coordinator of the event. As president of the Gulf County Soccer Boosters, Lacour and his wife, Becky have supported the youth athletic community for years and saw the kite flying event as a great way to raise funds for a local soccer coach, a position not budgeted by Gulf County Schools. The Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf Guild will also run a preliminary Duck Derby prior to a larger-scale event planned for the Scallop Festival in August. Kids will be able to adopt a rubber duck and the first one across the parks lagoon will win prizes.

James Park in Wewahitchka. The program is part of the University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences extension program that brings farming, horticulture and environmental science skills to kids ages 8-18 in Gulf County. This program allows kids to manage their horses better and perform at events a whole lot better, said Gulf County Extension director Roy Lee Carter. The four-day camp focused on horsemanship, speed classes, showmanship, pleasure and trail riding and the care of the horse and riding tack. In addition to spending their mornings on horseback, afternoon classes on nutrition for their horses and their riders allowed the 14-person class to escape the summer heat. Jean McMillian is in her 41st year as a leader with 4H and her fourth overseeing the horse program. I do it for the children, said McMillian. We have a very good group of parents and a congenial group of young men and women. She praised 4-H and its various programs for its role in developing good citizens while encouraging members to make the best better. McMillians goal is to teach responsibility and shed light on the important role it plays in creating good attitudes and good sportsmanship. Even though the club members compete against one another at horse shows, they encourage and root for their fellow riders. McMillian is thankful for the extension programs and the good qualities they develop in children. Roy is the backbone of the program, said McMillian. He works hard for the children in the county.

Although we havent had a hurricane this season. it doesnt hurt to be prepared. The arrival of hurricane season signals the need to develop a contingency plan to guard our lives and property from powerful winds and ooding rains. Ornamental plants and other landscape objects are especially vulnerable. One of the most important protective measures is to stake down any new trees and shrubs on your home grounds. By new we mean any small trees or large shrubs youve planted within the past year. The stakes should be two or three feet long. Youll need three or four per tree. Drive them into the soil to a depth of 18 to 24 inches, slanting them away from the tree at a 45-degree angle. This will make them more secure and less likely to be pulled out. How far you place the stake from a tree will depend on its size. A general rule is to locate the stakes the same distance from the base of the tree as the height above the ground at which you plan to attach the guide wires. To secure the wire and keep them from slipping off, make notches in the stakes a few inches from the top of each. Then attach wires in these notches and run them to a point about two-thirds up the trunk. Before attaching the wires to the tree, run them through lengths of garden hose to protect the bark. Now, tighten the wires enough to prevent excessive tree movement, but not so high that they might break or, worse yet, cause the tree to break in high winds. In addition to staking and guiding small trees and shrubs, you should inspect larger trees for broken, dead or damaged limbs and remove these as soon as possible. Hurricane winds can tear such limbs from a tree, and turn them into dangerous projectiles. However, remember that it is not a good idea to prune healthy branches before a hurricane, because this encourages new growth, which is very vulnerable to wind damage. During the storm season, it is especially important to keep gutters clear of leaves, twigs and other debris. Drainage should be at its best to cope with heavy hurricane rains. If you have hanging baskets, tub plants, or large potted plants on exposed porches or patios, they should be moved indoors ahead of the storm. Hurricane winds can damage or completely destroy both exposed plants and containers. Other loose items, which can be hurled about, such as lawn furniture, garden tools, toys, and garbage cans, also should be brought inside before strong winds strike. In addition to being severely damaged or destroyed, such objects can become lethal ying objects during a hurricane. While we all hope our state avoids serious hurricane damage this season, its still very important to be prepared. So, check your home grounds thoroughly, keeping our precautionary pointers in mind. And, if you detect potential dangers, take corrective action promptly. For more information on landscape preparedness call the Gulf County Extension Service at 639-3200 or visit our website: gulf.ifas.u.edu or www. edis.ifas.u.edu and see Publication HS 1021, FOR 115 and HS 1066.

HORSIN from page B1Special to The Star Women seeking timely, convenient and compassionate health care have more options this year, thanks to the expansion of gynecologic services to Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulfs Womens Center. Certied Nurse Practitioner Nancy Anderson began seeing patients at Womens Health Center in the hospitals Medical Ofce Building on May 15. Her services allow women to receive a full complement of screenings, including PAP smears, at their annual mammograms. Previously, the womens center provided mammography, ultrasound and bone density testing. This additional service will allow women in our community to meet all of their preventive, reproductive health screenings at one location, close to home, said Anderson. Current guidelines from the American Cancer Society recommend that women between the ages of 21 and 29 have a pelvic exam and Pap smear every three years. Women between the ages of 30 and 65 should have a pelvic exam, a Pap smear and an HPV test every ve years. However Anderson, who received her training at the Northwestern State University in Shreveport, LA and a subsequent doctorate of nursing practice from UAB explains, It is vital that we do not confuse the recommendation of less frequent Pap tests with the unchanged recommendation of annual pelvic health exams. To schedule an appointment with Anderson or the Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf Womens Center call 229-5680.

LocalB6 | The Star Thursday, June 20, 2013By WES LOCHER229-7843 |@PSJ_Star wlocher@star.com Kent Whitaker has an appetite for great food and the great stories that birthed the recipes. His latest book, Bullets and Bread, Feeding the Great to the Grunts in World War II, is a culinary history of the best and worst that WWII had to offer as told through the soldiers who had to eat it. Bullets and Bread collects memories and anecdotes about the best and worst chow served up from basic training to Europe, Africa and the Pacic, discusses Allied ration development and the modernization of Americas food production and the quality of chow on ships, subs, the trenches, PT Boats and bombers. Nashville-native Whitaker is the author of a dozen food-related books including, Smoke in the Mountains: The Art of Appalachian Barbecue and Checkered Flag Cooking: Tailgating Stock Car Racing. For the past 25 years, hes lived in Chattanooga, Tennessee with his wife Ally, son Macee and three dogs. By day, Whitaker works in graphics and advertising, but he has a separate life dedicated to the love of writing, cooking, and writing about cooking, a love that netted him an appearance on the Food Network television channel where he won the Emeril Live Barbecue Contest. In Whitakers separate life, theres a place that he desires to retire to and write for the remainder of his days: a little place known as Gulf County. It was 20 years ago that the Whitakers went searching for a southern vacation spot that would have crystal waters, beautiful beaches and, most importantly, be dog-friendly. After some searching, the Whitakers landed in Gulf County and now return several times a year. Its full of friendly people, said Whitaker. Even as a visitor, you feel like you live there. The husband and wife enjoyed the community surrounding area so much that they got a condo on Cape San Blas and became involved with local events and charities. It was while visiting his son at North Georgia College and State University that the idea for Bullets and Bread came together. While browsing a local gift shop at the base, Whitaker spied a copy of one of his other cookbooks and offered to sign the copy for the clerk. Another store patron approached Whitaker and asked to purchase the inscribed book. This started up some friendly conversation between the men and soon the veteran shared an anecdote about the challenges of barbecuing in Kuwait during the Gulf War. Another veteran in the shop, having heard the conversation, stepped in and talked about the large celebrations of food his naval unit would have each time they crossed the equator. Whitaker, entranced by the stories, immediately knew what his next book would be about. Having already written numerous cookbooks, the author wanted to take a different approach with his exciting new idea. As a contributor to the Chattanooga Free Press, Chattanooga Business Journal and Racing Milestones Magazine, he sought a way to combine his journalism background with the food-centric stories. I didnt want it to simply be a list of recipes, said Whitaker. I wanted it to be about the stories and the people. When he pitched the idea to his publisher, History Publishing Company, Whitakers plan was to share the stories of veterans from all of the wars. The publisher saw potential in the idea, but recommended that Whitaker focus on WWII veterans, noting that they were disappearing at a much quicker rate and there was history to be preserved. From concept to nished product, Bullets and Bread took four years to reach completion. Whitaker spent countless hours locating veterans with tting stories, traveling, meeting and running them through his extensive interview process. Going in, he doubted that hed nd enough contributors, but to his surprise, each conversation led to additional recommendations of veterans to speak with. Museum historians, Memorial Day events and Fourth of July celebrations also provided valuable connections. For those veterans that the author couldnt meet with face-to-face, additional time was spent on correspondence via the telephone, email and old fashioned, handwritten letters. Understanding that war time is never a popular conversation topic, Whitaker was happy that bad food often brought a smile to the faces of the 50 plus veterans he spoke with bringing up stories that contained more laughter than heartbreak. They didnt get too emotional telling their stories, but I sure got tore up listening to them! said Whitaker. Topics ranged from soldiers who were fed up of eating mutton stew and searched out alternatives, to tales of shing with dynamite, to stories of hungry soldiers who would try almost anything to avoid eating spam one more time. Organization was the key to creating the content for the book and very little technology was used when it came to the interview process. I did everything the good old fashioned way, said Whitaker, I listened and took notes. In addition to the book, Whitaker has plans for a TV show called Chow Line (the books original title) that he envisions as a combination of the Food Network programming and military history. His ultimate goal for the show would be to feature a cook-off between the Coast Guard and the Navy, two military branches known for the quality of their chow. Whitakers bibliography also includes two childrens books and an ongoing project to produce a book of hometown recipes for each of the 50 states. Hes also a member of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary and serves on the National Staff as an AUXCHEF and National Branch Chief. He currently serves the USCG 8th Eastern. The book makes a perfect gift for a foodie or a history buff, said the author. Its World War II history in a completely different light--History that should not get lost.

The committee spawned multiple subcommittees, painstakingly mapping every moment of a week-long birthday celebration. In all, 48 members of the community have participated on these committees, said Dana Boyer of the Centennial Celebration committee. So if you think this is coming from a couple of people, it is not. The celebration kicks off next Friday, June 28 and continues through July 5 and will include a special July Fourth reworks display, which Boyer, who has raised private funds to put on the reworks, will be at least a $15,000 display. The birthday festivities will have something special each day, from a parade on Friday recognizing prominent families and individuals to an alumni basketball game on July 5 at the former Washington High School gym. There will be interactive light shows, music, a family day, outdoor movies in the park, a car show, birthday cake and a display of a timeline tracing in photos the history of Port St. Joe. The thing we want people to understand is we want everybody who was born here, raised here or lived here to participate, said Mayor Mel Magidson. There is something for everyone. Boyer said the committee had raised more than $26,000 in cash and in-kind donations for the event. We would not be where we are without these in-kind contributions, Boyer said. She said there was a possibility of another major sponsor and her numbers did not include pro t from the sale of commemorative coins. The coins sales have gone well, Magidson said. We have covered the cost of the coins and whatever more we make will go to the event. After the event, the committee will publish an 80-page softcover book of historic and celebration photos. Whatever we spent money on (such as the timeline) it wasnt for a one-shot deal, Boyer said. We wanted to be able to use it year after year. Boyer also urged those joining the celebration to visit one of two Facebook pages. The Centennial Celebration has a page and there is another page titled, If you grew up in Port St. Joe, you remember which includes recollections from current and former residents. The Port St. Joe Centennial Celebration also has a web site with full schedule of events. A schedule will also be published in next weeks edition of The Star.PSJRA MOVECalling a morning workshop on a city/county interlocal agreement (see story A2) productive during which a lot was resolved commissioners moved to approve the move of the Port St. Joe Redevelopment Agency to the Local Color Chamber of Commerce building. Commissioner Rex Buzzett made the motion in good faith in hopes that the city and county will work through differences on the interlocal agreement. Travel request brings questionsBy TIM CROFT227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@starfl.com Months ago County Commissioner Joanna Bryan asked the Clerk of Courts for travel records pertaining to commissioners, staff and several annual conferences. When the records were provided for public viewing during the last regular meeting of the Board of County Commissioners, at least two commissioners wondered about their accuracy. Bryan made her request earlier this year after presented with a board motion to approve travel by Commissioner Warren Yeager in advance, providing a blanket approval for travel to speci c meetings. At the time, before voting, Bryan asked the Clerks of ce to provide travel numbers for county attendance for the Florida Association of Counties annual meeting, the annual convention of the National Association of Counties and the Florida Small Counties Coalition. She wanted those records for the previous two scal years. What the Clerks of ce provided, budget and nance ofcer Sherry Herring said, was the travel of all county staff, commissioners in-county travel and travel to those three conferences as well as a breakdown by district. However, Herring said the system she was trying to pull information from was only as good as the information that was put in the system and that left her efforts to answer Bryans questions constrained. The breakdown by district, she said, could be off due to the way the system is set up and how and who uses county credit cards to pay for the travel.Hearing looms large for Port AuthorityBy TIM CROFT227-7827 |@PSJ_Startcroft@starfl.comA hearing next month will have signi cant impact, for better or worse, on development at the Port of Port St. Joe. The hearing, scheduled for July 17 before Circuit Court Judge Shonna Gay Young, is on a motion to foreclose on 67 acres of port land brought by Capital City Bank. Both sides seek summary judgment, meaning there is no dispute of material legal facts. The bank seeks foreclosure due to a $4.3 million loan in arrears the Port Authority has not made a payment on principle in at least two years. The Port Authoritys defense is that the body lacked authority, under state law, to mortgage public property without a public referendum in the rst place. A decision, port attorney Tom Gibson said, would not be expected immediately. The most likely outcome is the judge makes no decision that day, Gibson said. The 67 acres represents the ports barge terminal, the bulkhead and uplands. The improvements to the property, in the millions, came from state and federal grant funds. Port Authority members have publicly and consistently stated the intent to pay the debt, but currently there is no revenue. The hearing complicates a request from the Board of County Commissioners. During recent meetings, several commissioners have pressed the port about a $199,000 economic development loan a fraction of 1 percent of funds received by the port in the past decade the port received last year. Port Authority Chairman Leonard Costin appeared before the BOCC a few weeks ago to inquire if the debt payment schedule could be amended due to the ports current lack of revenue. The Port Authority has 10 months to make the initial payment. County Commissioner Ward McDaniel asked if the Port Authority would be willing to consider as collateral a mortgage on the old Arizona Chemical property; 100 acres and infrastructure donated to the Port Authority by the parent company of Arizona Chemical. I understand where they are coming from but I dont see any reason to restructure the agreement, said board member Patrick Jones, who has long expressed opposition to any encumbrances of Arizona DAN CHRISTIE | Special to The StarThe sunset over St. Joseph Bay had a particular glow this past Sunday as Fathers Day drew to a close.

After sniping over an interlocal agreement for months, commissioners spent 90 minutes poring over the document in order to agree on any revisions. No decisions were made at what was a workshop. And no agreement was reached on the two central issues: amending the interlocal to change how a re tax for WindMark Beach is collected and the moving of the Port St. Joe Redevelopment Agency from the Gulf County Tourist Development Council Welcome Center, which is leased to the TDC by the city. Near the conclusion of the workshop, County Commissioner Joanna Bryan urged city commissioners to allow the PSJRA, which is currently paying rent for two ofce spaces and is largely operating out of boxes, to move by the end of June. Bo Spring, a director on the PSJRA board, said he would make a motion at the PSJRAs meeting on Thursday to allow the move and hoped the city would be supportive (See related story A1). When asked by the county earlier this year to allow the move, the city of Port St. Joe balked for several reasons and asked the county to revisit the re tax issue, which the city urged should be divided among the three volunteer re departments that respond to WindMark Beach. The development of WindMark Beach and annexation by the city resulted in the interlocal agreement the two sides signed in 2005. The city sought an amendment to the re tax issue almost two years ago, said Mayor Mel Magidson. He said the county request to move the PSJRA provided an opening to again broach the subject. He said Bryans assertion that the re tax and PSJRA move were linked was far-fetched. And he noted that the countys response to the citys request was to allow the city to collect the re tax in return for conveying to the county the land on which the Welcome Center sits and the city taking over re protection in Oak Grove, an unincorporated area. Now, those two are not linked to the interlocal agreement, Magidson said. Id like to be treated the way the county wants to be treated. Bryan countered that she was not talking about linkage as much as logic. She said elected ofcials must be stewards of every tax dollar and it made no logical sense to continue to hold up the PSJRA move. City Commissioner Rex Buzzett said he was the commissioner who broached the PSJRA move, in large part because he did not want PSJRA operational costs to increase due to the move. He said the lease agreement for the Welcome Center a provision the county provide space to the Chamber and PSJRA, to which it was not adhering. He also noted the city has gone deeply in debt meeting the provisions of the interlocal. We have agreements and we are both going to have to live by these agreements, Buzzett said. Lets keep working on these agreements. Yeager added, We do have agreements but we havent always bound to them. The re tax issue was among 15 items commissioners reviewed with attorneys, staff and the public present. In general, there was much common ground on the majority of the 15 items, some remain to be further eshed out, better dened or amended in their entirety. That included a guarantee that all users of the citys water and sewer, in the city limits or out, are charged identically. Bryan, as she did at the previous BOCC meeting, was hesitant about amending the agreement at all. The city wanted to annex WindMark Beach and agreed to these provisions, Bryan said. I think this is a big issue to go in and change this agreement. City attorney Tom Gibson noted that the agreement was likely most important to Bryan because her predecessor representing District 3 drew up much of the agreement on the county side. Much of what is in here is because (former commissioner) Mr. (Bill) Williams wanted it in there, Gibson said. Commissioners will be provided a revised document, based on comments made Tuesday, in the coming weeks to consider for a formal vote. I appreciate everyone coming, Yeager said. Its been a productive workshop. Most of our constituents are the same. It behooves us all for us to work together.PSJ, county workshop interlocalBy TIM CROFT227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@starfl.com The announced overhaul of medical services at the Wewahitchka Gulf Department Health Clinic begins July 1. The last day the Florida Department of Health will provide primary care medical services at the clinic, located on State 22, will be June 30, a Sunday. As of the following day, the medical clinic will be closed for approximately two weeks. Roger Hall, president of Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf, told the Board of County Commissioners last week that he expects Sacred Heart will restart primary care services sometime in mid-July. We are actually going to expand the services from what they are now, Hall told commissioners. We should be back up and running by mid-July; as soon as we can get our people in there. Primary care services include acute and chronic illness visits, well-child and sick visits for children, Behavioral Health and lab collections for Health Department patients. The Florida Department of Health for Gulf County will continue to provide public health services through the transition. Dental services for adults and children, environmental health, Healthy Start, School Health and Tobacco Cessation and Prevention programs will continue during the transition. WIC will continue to have a presence the rst and third Friday of each month and immunizations will also be done those two days. Family planning services will continue to be offered the rst Tuesday of each month. Birth certicates will continue to be provided. I have advocated that there be no interruption of services to the north end of the county, said Marsha Lindeman, executive director of the Gulf County Health Department. Services are being increased for primary care by the provider most able to provide those services. Lindemans bottom line for primary care services has bled $500,000 over recent years due to budget cuts to primary care services by the Florida Department of Health. Compounding the problem is that the Wewahitchka clinic has been without a physician for two years, with the resultant drop in fees and, she said last week, she inherited budget which funded services with dollars she wasnt going to be able to ledger anymore. With the Federally Qualied Health Clinic (FQHC) operating under the umbrella of the Gulf County Health Department, Lindeman can leverage federal funds to provide dental care on both ends of the county and primary care in Port St. Joe. Over 50 percent of those seen under the FQHC are uninsured, she noted. Lindeman said the county pays a smaller percentage to the Health Department budget than any other county in the state with an operating FQHC. The only area she could cut, she told the BOCC last week, was primary care in Wewahitchka. But, the positive was the long-standing partnership between Health Department and Sacred Heart which stretches back to before Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf opened more than three years ago. Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf will operate a health clinic from the same health department facility currently in use for primary care services. I felt this was the optimal plan for providing primary care services, Lindeman said. Medical Records Release forms are available now at the Gulf County Health Department for patients transitioning from the health department to Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf for Primary Care Services. For more information please contact the Gulf County Health Department at 227-1276, ext. 205. Changes at Wewahitchka Health Department begin July 1

She noted that during the time period involved, two newly-elected commissioners, Commissioners Ward McDaniel and Tan Smiley, might not have been issued their county credit cards and others may have paid for trips. She also said she would receive vouchers with only the name of a hotel on it, but no indication about the circumstances of the stay. She had more than one travel voucher that does not state what it is for. Herring agreed with commissioners who suggested the BOCC and Clerks ofce look at the way travel forms are coded and how information is entered into the Clerks system. McDaniel disputed the accuracy of the numbers and noted that taxpayer dollars were involved. This is peoples money, McDaniel said. In an email to Bryan, Herring noted the restrictions she was operating under. Given our resources I have attached the best summary I am able to provide in this time frame, Herring wrote on April 9, roughly two months after Bryans request. Herring also noted that the outof-county travel numbers were solely for the conferences requested. As we discussed, I have broken down the commissioners travel by the conferences you specically requested, Herring continued. Doing so for other departments and/or additional conferences would take additional time. Herring said during the board meeting that while district numbers might skew depending on circumstances, The overall totals are correct. Overall, commissioners spent $31,846.77 in 2011 and over $32,000 in 2012 to travel to the FAC, NACO and SCC meetings, as well as what is noted as other travel which involves only Yeager ($2,133 in 2011; $5,133 the next year) and former Commissioner Bill Williams ($4,116 in 2011; $8,471 in 2012). Commissioner Carmen McLemore did not attend any conferences, but the four other commissioners attended the FAC and NACO conferences and the Clerks records indicate the county administrator and attorney also attended. In addition, the ve commissioners combined to spend $24,740 in 2011 and $23,413 in 2012 for incounty travel, with Williams and McLemore each claiming at least $6,000 in 2011 in-county travel alone. In addition, staff travel, in-county or not, totaled $66,579 in 2011 $26,670 is labeled Other General Fund Travel which is paid from the same fund from which commissioners are paid and $75,937 in 2012. In 2012, $33,556 of that travel again was labeled Other General Fund Travel and was paid from the same fund as commissioners. That put the narrow travel totals provided by the Clerk, restricted to the three major conferences, incounty and staff travel, at $123,166 in 2011 and $131,458 in 2012. I think we need to look at how we can improve on keeping track of expenses, Bryan said. I think we need to make some improvements.Agenda changesThe BOCC also got its rst look at a proposed process for crafting the agenda, which would require commissioners to place items on the agenda by a deadline or seek approval of a super-majority (four votes) at the beginning of the meeting to amend the agenda to include any additional items requiring a vote. In seeking that amendment, the commissioner must explain the purpose for inclusion in the agenda. The process would be similar for staff to bring an item to the BOCC after deadline, but the request for an amendment must come from a commissioner. Any request from the public that arrived after the deadline would follow the same procedure. The document was drafted by county attorney Jeremy Novak. The goal is to increase public awareness and transparency regarding the issues and topics to be discussed, the policy stated. Bryan asked that commissioners review the policy and come back with suggested revisions at the next BOCC meeting. TRAVEL from page A1Chemical parcel. The county is second in line behind Capital City Bank on the mortgage for the barge terminal parcel. The Circuit Court hearing will impact the countys position. Should the bank prevail, the countys position is moot. Should the port prevail, it would be unlikely, Gibson noted, that any port property could be mortgaged without a public referendum. I cant tell you you will have the power to give anybody a mortgage, Gibson said. Board member Eugene Rafeld suggested and the board agreed to ask the BOCC if the Port Authority could delay any decision until after the foreclosure hearing. We are very concerned and want to pay everything that we owe, Rafeld said. But we cant make a decision until after Capital City Bank is addressed. We want (the BOCC) in the loop. They have to be responsible for that money. We need to be good stewards. The county dollars are federal economic development dollars meant to be a revolving loan program by which the BOCC awards the money to various businesses for expansion or development. When the money is repaid it is awarded to another eligible entity. Rafeld Fisheries used the same funds to expand its freezer capacity at its sh house.Dredging/Master PlanGibson and port director Tommy Pitts told the board the update to the master plan was completed and the Port Authority board formally adopted the plan and forwarded it to the city of Port St. Joe. The city must hold public hearings before its planning board and commission as part of the process of updating the citys comprehensive plan to include the new port master plan. Pitts said he asked the two engineering rms on continuing contract with the Port Authority to submit statements of qualications specic to maintenance dredging. Pitts said the aim was to dredge to a minimum of 33 feet with the hope of ultimately going to the federallyauthorized 35 feet. That opens up all kind of opportunities, Pitts said, adding that however the foreclosure hearing was decided, an operational deepwater port is key to development. Rafeld wondered, as he did at the prior board meeting, if the Tourist Development Council should be brought into the loop. There is potential some dredge material could be suitable for beach nourishment, he said. I have always considered beach renourishment as a secondary benet of dredging, Pitts said. Meeting with MontfordCostin said he had a meeting Gov. Rick Scotts ofce with Scotts chief of staff and state Sen. Bill Montford (R-Tallahassee), who represents Gulf County. Montford had attempted to work with Capital City Bank to secure a $2 million state appropriation to partially address the port mortgage and allow time for port development to take hold. Costin said the meeting was positive, that it was informational as he related how dynamics changed since collaboration with the St. Joe Company to develop the port was etched in writing. The concern from the governor, Costin indicated, was the lack of tangible progress over recent years despite the investment of millions of state and federal dollars. Costin said he provided information and emerged from the meeting, scheduled for 15 minutes but spanning nearly an hour, with optimism the port message, a different one from as little as two years ago, was conveyed.Board communicationsPitts addressed board members concerning a letter to the editor from board member Johanna White published in The Star two weeks ago. Pitts, who outside of administrative dollars in a grant to update the master plan works for $1 per month, said he had not formally responded publicly and had hoped White who was absent attended the meeting in order to be able to talk directly. Pitts said he believed the letter incorrectly implied that he led the board instead of taking direction from the Port Authority board. Jones asked, motioned and the board approved including Pitts complete response to Whites letter into the regular meeting minutes. Costin said the board should handle such matters internally. More than a year ago, shortly after the collaboration agreement with St. Joe was signed, Costin and Gibson emphasized the importance of port ofcials speaking with unied voice and message. PORT from page A1 SETTING IT STRaAIGHTIn last weeks story concerning the hiring of a new city clerk in Mexico Beach, it was stated that the council was deciding between two candidates, Sharon McGhee and Christina Marquardt Adams, who was identied without her married name. Adams was not a formal candidate for the position. She had applied during the interview process and during a special meeting the week prior Mayor Al Cathey, with the support of Councilmember Bobby Pollock expressed a desire to interview Adams. The 2-2 vote cited in last weeks story was on a motion to hire McGhee. The Star regrets any confusion.

I wanted to be an auctioneer. It was amazing how the words and sounds just rolled off their tongues. You could get a good dose of the mesmerizing calls every Saturday and Wednesday afternoons out at the old Tri County Stockyards. It seemed to my little ten year old mind to be some type of controlled pandemonium. They would be running cows, steers, bulls, sheep, hogs and/or Billy goats into that sawdust covered area just as fast as humanly possible. A short pause lasted only long enough to let the auctioneer wield his magic, a few hands to rise and the nod of a head or two to bobble in the wrap around audience. That animal was sold and you better get your eyes focused quickly on the gate to the far left the next lot was being herded in. I tried to take it all in at once! It was fun to guess how high the bid would go on certain breeds. Bulls, without question, brought the most money. And a lot more cows were sold than anything else. Hog prices, according to Dad, hinged on whether we were buying... or selling! Ive seen bulls near bout leap into the crowd. Ive seen hogs chase handlers around the arena. Ive seen mules sit down right in the middle of the auction and refuse to get up. I saw a cow once start into labor right on the sales oor. The folks in the audience were often more fun to watch than the four legged guys in the arena. Half of them showed up every time the sales doors opened and never bid on a thing. I reckon grown-ups liked to hear the auctioneer too. Or maybe, they had an old heifer or a young yearling they were trying to handicap as to value. Things moved a mite slow back in the mid fties. Perhaps this was simply the best action in town. The seating arrangements were kinda like church. People apparently were assigned to the same place sale after sale. The aggressive bidders usually were down on the rst row. They would bid early and often but didnt buy as much as you might think. A late nod from the back row would take a steer home quicker than you could say, What are you going to give for it... Some guys waved frantically like they were proud to be bidding. Or they didnt want the auctioneer, or you, to miss the fact that they had cash money and were ready to deal. Some did it with a slight raise of one nger. Another might drop his head slightly. And still another might move his head up just enough to make direct eye contact with the auctioneer. The guy behind the mike didnt miss a one. Without question, he was in charge. And he seldom slowed the tempo. I just could not believe that anyone could talk so rapidly without seemingly ever taking a breath. And he did it all in some type of rhythm that kept perfect time with the braying of the livestock, the ruckus of the handlers prodding and turning the sales objects, the calls for popcorn and cold drinks ringside and the general din that accompanied any place that had a large audience actively participating in the ongoing proceedings. The auctioneer would only slow the pace if the price wasnt to his liking. Comeon now, youre not looking at this one. Take a good long gander at her anks, the straight back, the general size of her, shell throw calves half grown! Were at sixty two, fty, wholl give me seventyve, I need seventyve... It wasnt quite as good as the circus but it didnt miss it by much. And it didnt cost nothing, unless you ran your ngers through your hair at exactly the wrong moment! I asked Dad once why they only held these wonderful sales on Saturdays and Wednesdays. I was expecting him to explain it took a while to round up the appropriate animals to sell. Son, he didnt hesitate, two days a week is about all they can stand. On what do you want to be day in elementary school I never picked doctor, lawyer or reman. I proudly proclaimed that I was going into the auctioneering business. Id fall asleep on Saturday nights rehearsing, Well, Im at twentyve here, wholl give me thirty, I got thirty, wholl make forty, wholl give forty, Ive got thirty now, wholl bid... I took a job with Colonel James T. Birddog Reed as a recorder when I was in high school. He auctioned off house and farm estates. Id write down Zenith table model as he began to tell how this particular radio could bring in the Grand Ole Opry a week ahead of time and then hed go into that familiar chant. Id put down Mr. Chadwick and the amount he paid when the gavel fell. Wouldnt it be great to come back from auctioneer school and take Mr. Martins place at the Tri County Stockyards! Or I could go into business with Birddog hawking those old lamps, wringer washers and China cabinets. My parents insisted on college. They preferred English and biology over hogs and Dutch ovens. It was probably just as well. Tri County Stockyards went out of business years ago... and people dont do much auctioning at yard sales now-a-days. But late at night, when everyone is asleep, or when Im alone in the car, Ill sell a Brahma bull, a lot of Black Angus or an old 175 International tractor. Old dreams die hard...Respectfully,Kes Most folks enjoy coffee in the morning. Most is accurate. According to statistics, about 100 million in America are daily coffee drinkers; percentagewise, that is over 50%. Therefore, most is accurate. It seems like a lot of people have turned to those single serving coffee machines with the little plastic cups that not only allow you make coffee on a whim, but also tea and hot chocolate. I have one of those, but the cost still bothers me. Im one of those people who will check the coffee pot for leftovers late at night and if there is any, Ill put it in the microwave. Ive also heard of folks keeping leftover coffee in the refrigerator. That makes sense, but I will usually drink it all by the end of the day anyway. At work, its a different story. The fellow who made our coffee nally retired. You know how it is; there is usually one person who is in charge of the coffee making. Sometimes, its a matter of pride or possibly even job security. The retired fellows coffee was actually not good. Im not being honest it was terrible, but I drank it. After he was gone, I found that things can get worse. The next person in charge of coffee made much worse coffee. It was so bad that it forced me to another oor of my building. The folks one oor below dont mind me coming down there; new paying customers are always welcome in an of ce coffee pool. There will always be those who dont pay. There was the added bonus that the downstairs coffee was only 20 cents. Their coffee is really not that good either, but I do not think that it will cause as much damage as the stuff on my oor. Also, the clientele one oor below is a little more interesting. They are more reclusive. In other words, they let you get your coffee and get out rather than engaging you in a conversation about politics or planar fasciitis. Everyone has their own way of collecting money for the of ce coffee. Downstairs, they simply have a red metal box with a little lock on it and one slot on the top to drop your money. For the rst few months, there was one older gentleman, who is affectionately known as Santa Claus who would wander in when I was getting coffee. Santa Claus never said much; sometimes he would grunt or just mumble. It wasnt an unhappy grunt; I think he was just trying to make conversation. Im sure that he has a Ph.D. in something very impressive and is doing some very important research. Seeing him walking down the hall one day behind me, I decided to have a little fun. As he came into the kitchen, I poured a cup of coffee and put my quarter in the red metal box. Then I stood staring at the red metal box. The red metal box has a little black and white plastic frog glued on top. The Santa Claus fellow seemed to be getting anxious. I continued to stand there in front of the coffee pot, staring at the red metal box. I waited a while longer. Finally, Santa Claus let go of a good grunt. Im pretty sure the translation of the grunt would be, Please move, I want my coffee now. I got down for a close examination of the red metal box as if to talk to the black and white plastic frog. Then I calmly said, I put a quarter in there and it still has not given me a nickel back. Then Santa Claus spoke and I could understand him. He said, I dont think it will. I did my best to look confused and I took my coffee and left. It was a good day; I got Santa Claus to talk. Im sure he thinks Im a nut, but thats ok. In the weeks that followed, the black and white plastic frog on the top of the little red metal box disappeared, coffee downstairs went up to 25 cents and then the frog reappeared. Santa Claus could be trying to tell me something or perhaps he was trying to lessen my anxiety about the red metal box not giving change. Im not so sure about what happened to the plastic frog, the coffee seems a little better downstairs, perhaps he had been swimming in the pot and nally got out.

Circulation:1-800-345-8688 CRANKS MY TRACTORBN Heard OPINION www.starfl.comThursday, June 20, 2013 APage 4SectionBy Ed McAteerSpecial to The Star Well, it is summertime and graduation has come and gone. For those who do not rush off to college, I am guessing mom and dad are probably encouraging you to get out and nd a job. And with that being said, I have some advice for you related to the job interview process. No, I am not going to bore you with the mechanics of how to build a resume, merely tell you what employers are looking for in todays work environment and prospective candidate. When starting a job search in todays tough times, many people still stick to re nement of their resume and honing their people skills. Thats good, but someone right out of high school probably doesnt have lots of experience. Strong interpersonal skills are great. Integrity matters. However, the thing that makes all the difference today is simply presenting you as someone who is a problem solver. How do I do this? The best way to train yourself as a problem solver is to research the industry [type of job you desire] and your prospective employer [company you want to work for] and take all the time you need to study about both. Study the employees and customers, suppliers, and business partners. Then, use all that background information that you found to inform yourself so that during the interview, you can be humble in knowing how the company functions and what made them successful. Talk your own passions and talents to the employers challenges; tell them how you can t right in from day one and help them make money, improve customer service, and help solve problems. Do this and you have an opening for a real opportunity to be successful in empowering you for the position. This is important so listen. There is a downside to this strategy. The research required involves so much time and so much effort that only one out of every ten people will even take the time to do it. Are you the one or the other nine? I have never known anyone who has ever taken this advice, prepared themselves by doing the hard work up front and not been hired into the position they were seeking. I often tell those I helped write resumes the number-one thing you need to do is to set up a routine whereby every day make the resume writing and job search your job. Spend two to four hours a day writing and researching to make the difference. Grow yourself powerful and smarter than the person you will be competing against. Something else that is very hard for a young graduate is to take feedback or criticism from someone. You think you know it all when you are young. You dont. When someone is giving you feedback, make him or her feel that it is okay to do so. Let them know that you accept feedback readily and can listen to them with your full intent. If you act defensively, get angry, or pushed back, your advisor will make a note to self: I wont be doing this again. When you make it hard for others to give you feedback, your colleagues, and friends will avoid you. It will help if you think of feedback as simply data and keep it in perspective. You want to combine it with hundreds of other pieces of information but do not supercharge any one piece of it. Adults, want to give feedback to others? The number-one rule of constructive criticism is to make the other person feel safe. You have to let that person know that you care about his or her success while you address their concerns. Also, let me tell the young graduate, there is nothing more important than the incredible impact of compound interest when it comes to saving for retirement. Would you like to have $1 million by the time you reach retirement, usually age 65? You can but it takes discipline. If only someone would have told me about these things when I was 18. About age 18-22, you only need to save three to ve dollars each day. It isnt a lot of money. Skip the soda, cigarettes, or Starbucks coffee and stash the cash. You have to be thoughtful and save every day. So graduate, when you get that job that you have prepared for, remember to take three to ve dollars for your future, and when you are older and wiser, you will awaken one morning and say, Hey, where did all this money come from? It really works. Again, only one of you in nine people will even think about this ever again, less more, do the action that is required. You have to gure out the difference between your wants and your needs. I want many things, but I need very little. My pastor, David Fernandez a few years back told his congregation, we did not need 90 percent of what we have. He started giving away, downsized, and became happier than ever. I did a quick look at my material possessions, and he was right. Most things are luxury and not needed. I learned a lesson, and I do not buy things to impress other people; it is about the things that I need. So when you go into a store, always take that extra second to picture in your mind how disappointed you will be if you do not make that purchase. On the other hand, sleep on it. Most of the time when using that train of thought, you will simply not buy the item. I would be remiss if I did not tell you to try to do good things for others. Giving of your free time or nances well, you cannot out give God, and he richly blesses those who give without restraint and with a cheerful heart. Pray about it and then test him and see for yourself. Graduates today are going to need to save at a greater rate than the generations that have gone before you. Make certain when you are hired in that great job, sign up for the 401(k) plan, especially if it matches all or part of what you contribute and stay in it for as long as you can. Its called getting free money from See MCATEER A5

One day, you will be giving this advice to your next-generation young graduates. Ed McAteer is a resident of Port St. Joe .Why the rush?Dear Editor, At the June 11 regular meeting of the Gulf County BOCC a recommendation was made by Assistant County Administrator, Michael Hammond, for the Gulf County Detention Facility to assume control and responsibility for Gulf County probation services and the pretrial release program. This memorandum was neatly placed in the Consent Agenda packet. Had Commissioner Ward McDaniel not pulled the recommendation for discussion by the full Board, this recommendation (like so many others) would have quietly been approved by the Board without any open discussion for the bene t of the public. Commissioners McDaniel and Bryan voiced their concerns regarding this operational change. Overriding all logic, a 3-2 vote approved Mr. Hammonds recommendation. No opportunity was given by Chairman Smiley for public input before the vote was taken. So, without any public input and no plan, probation services will soon be provided in-house by county staff. Mr. Hammond states in his memorandum that, Following my review and analysis of the current program, I submit the foregoing recommendations based on the understanding and assumption that our current correctional facility staff will administer the programs without need for additional personnel from the County Commission. How so? Will one employee handle the program? Or will several share the duties? How much spare time do jail employees have available to take on additional duties? Where is Mr. Hammonds review and analysis? He submitted a recommendation to the BOCC without any details of how this operational change will work. He stated during the meeting that the program can be run more ef ciently in-house but did not give any details. What liability issues will result for the County with this change? Do we have certi ed staff to provide all the probation and pretrial services required? How much money is Mr. Hammond projecting as a revenue stream for the County? During Mr. Hammonds comments I did not hear any estimate of income for the County. Mr. Stewart from Florida Probation Service gave lots of numbers during his comments I cannot attest to their accuracy but he had numbers. So many questions remain unanswered. Most disturbing to me was Commissioner Yeagers rush to get this voted on that day. What was the urgency? Commissioner Yeager stated he had been in discussion with staff for 2-3 months and they have convinced me this will work. How did Mr. Butler and Mr. Hammond convince him? Where is the plan? Commissioner Bryan suggested the item be tabled until Mr. Hammond could present the Board with written information on how this program will work Commissioner Yeager would have none of it. Whats the back story here? All the fees generated go to the Clerks of ce to help support the court system. This operational change will not reduce taxpayer burden by one red cent. In fact, I believe this will be an abysmal failure it will cost taxpayers money, collection rates will go down and open the door for potential lawsuits against the County. Florida Probation Service is a group of trained professionals. Mr. Hammond alluded to some problems with the running of the program. From his speci c complaints I would conclude the problems are of a clerical nature and can easily be resolved between the Clerks of ce and Mr. Stewarts of ce. It was obvious, as the discussion between Mr. Hammond and Mr. Stewart progressed, that Mr. Hammond has other issues with Mr. Stewart. I found Mr. Hammonds verbal attack on Mr. Stewart extremely unprofessional and certainly in violation of the Countys pledge of civility. It was quite a contrast from just a few months ago when the BOCC warmly applauded the great work that had been done by Florida Probation Service. Mr. Hammond said, If we make $1 its better than what youre making today because youre not making anything. I question the accuracy of that statement. Florida Probation Service currently pays $750 per month ($9,000 per year) to rent an of ce in the Wewahitchka Sheriffs sub-station plus provides free internet service for the sub-station. The monthly internet fee is $200 per month $2,400 per year. The rental income and free internet will be gone. Sheriff Harrison stated in the June 11 meeting that it will be dif cult to keep the sub-station open without the money from Florida Probation Service. The sub-station is important to the citizens of Wewahitchka they deserve a law enforcement presence in the northern part of Gulf County. Another wrong-headed decision was made by the BOCC June 11. This takes me back to the vote on moving Public Works to Howard Creek; the vote had to be taken that day. That was a bad decision then and this is a bad decision now. Commissioners Smiley, McLemore and Yeager, your bad judgment will cost the people of Gulf County. Commissioner Yeager, waiting two weeks to at least see a written proposal surely cant be too much to ask at the end of the day.Barbara RadcliffIndian Pass P. S. Since the June 11 meeting, the County Attorney has sent a letter to Florida Probation Service requesting they remain on the job until October 1, 2013. All the more curious why the vote had to be taken June 11 if the County wants Florida Probation Service to remain on the job 3 months longer. The contract allows for a 60-day out clause. Again, why the rush to push through this decision?Value perceived or deceived? Dear Editor, Commissioner Joanna Bryan asked months ago for the travel and expense accounting for all the commissioners in an honest transparent effort to determine not only what the real costs are but who they are going to and inevitably a justi cation for all the out of county expenses. In other words, what did we get out of this cost? When we send a commissioner or county representative to a function like the Florida Association of Counties, are we getting what we paid for and what did the investment bring back to the county besides a fake smile, hot air and a fun trip for a public servant? The request was nally answered at the last commission meeting with alarming costs that we have paid and learned that the accounting system needs a little tweaking to accurately tell the public speci cally where our money went. Mrs. Sherry Herring seemed to have her hands tied by existing procedures that made her task dif cult if not impossible at best as she tried to explain in the meeting. If we have improper procedures, wonder was has been happening or missed in the past? Historically, Gulf County took few if any trips and was never involved with the Florida Association of Counties or any other Associations. We have all been told that it is important to spend these dollars to send our Representatives to make sure our community is recognized and not left out of the mysterious Pots of Money being passed around. It has been several years, thousands of our dollars and we can see no monetary return of one dollar let alone the hypothetical Pots of Money. We would be the rst to support making sure we get recognition with the State especially if you could convince us that if we spend $1,000 we will get that back plus some more. In respect to the RESTORE money, we will get money from that in spite of the trips and it may be that these trips hampered the process of receiving funds and the amount. However, when the funds do appear from whatever effort you can be assured that certain county commissioners will claim the credit when it is not theirs to claim. Typical politics by those who know how to work the system to their favor and not ours. What it appears we are doing with the luxurious trips is providing our public servants with an open check book for vacations and an opportunity for them to advance their personal political agenda, not ours. This is more than evident by a past commissioner who wormed his way to the Chair of the Florida Association of Counties, left here in nancial ruin and is now working in Tallahassee as a lobbyist. How did that help us? Chasing Pots of Money is for the adventuresome and nancially stable. It is not advisable if you are in the red as indicated at the last talk of the county budget and cutting back on people and services for the community. We say, Show me the Money these trips earned us and provide proof that the suffering our community services and reduction in people was worth it. We do not think you can. Gulf County needs to cut back its travel and expense over 80 percent. It is not necessary to travel this much and it is a proven a waste of money.Citizens Improving Gulf County By JASON ALDERMANOne of the pitfalls of Congress passing complicated, sweeping legislation is that sometimes provisions designed to protect one group unexpectedly create hardships for others. Thats what happened with 2009s Credit Card Accountability Responsibility Disclosure (CARD) Act, which was hailed as legislation that would protect consumers from misleading credit practices. Among other things, the CARD Act requires that people under 21 must have an adult co-signer in order to open a credit account unless they can prove their ability to repay their account balance. This provision was designed to prevent young adults from assuming more debt than they can afford and then being unable to pay it off, thereby ruining their credit standing. So far, so good. Then, in 2011 the Federal Reserve nalized rules around the CARD Acts ability to pay provision. It stated that credit card issuers generally could only consider an applicants independent income or assets before issuing a new card or increasing a credit limit, not his or her access to the households overall income. An unintended consequence soon emerged: As a result of the ability-topay rule, many spouses or partners over age 21 who dont work outside the home suddenly found they were unable to open separate credit accounts in their own name, regardless of whether or not they had access to their working spouse/partners income. Establishing ones own credit history is crucial to gaining favorable interest rates and access to credit, especially when non-working spouses get divorced or their spouse dies unexpectedly. Thus many consumers (and their Congressional representatives) were upset. Their displeasure reached the ears of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). Fast forward to October 2012, when the CFPB released a proposal that was expected to ease credit rules for stay-athome spouses or partners. After six months of public review, the CFPB issued a formal amendment to the ability-to-pay rule that essentially says credit card applicants who are at least 21 can factor in a third partys income or assets when applying for credit card accounts if theres a reasonable expectation theyll be able to access those funds to make payments. (This includes income of a spouse or partner, although the rule applies to all applicants, regardless of marital status.) Speaking of unintended consequences, however, remember that even though having at least one credit card or loan in your own name can help you build a strong credit history, its important to carefully manage all credit accounts on which youre named whether as an individual, cosigner or authorized user to prevent damage to your credit score. Having a poor credit score can cost a small fortune over a lifetime. Youll pay higher rates and have a harder time qualifying for mortgages, car loans and credit cards. To maintain or improve your credit score: Always pay all bills on time. Never exceed credit limits. Try to keep your credit utilization ratio (the percentage of available credit youre using) below 30 percent. Send your letters to : LETTERS TO THE EDITOR P.O.

By LOIS SWOBODA653-1819 | @ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com The 425 anglers who shed in the 25th annual Big Bend Saltwater Classic battled rough seas last weekend. Matt Lambert, chairman of the tournament, said several captains ended the day early on Saturday and fewer sh were weighed than last year. We still weighed a lot of sh though, Lambert said. Paul Osterbye, who shes out of Carrabelle every weekend, said his team experienced 6-8-foot waves for most of the day Saturday. Rough water didnt dampen everyones enthusiasm. Osterbyes 7-yearold granddaughter Jaylyn Middleton still managed to haul in more than 50 sh, though none made it onto the leaderboard. Aboard the Miss Carla, Dusty May of Port St. Joe took third place for points in the Masters Division with 255 points. Dusty also made a splash with a monster dolphin he snagged. At 24.9 pounds, the sh was almost twice as heavy as the next runner up. It was a real Fathers Day tournament this year. Aboard the Miss Carla, father Dusty May of Port St. Joe and sons Dusty Junior and Danny took third place for points in the Masters Division with 255 points. Dusty Junior also made a splash with a monster dolphin he snagged. At 24.9 pounds, the sh was almost twice as heavy as the next runner up. Also shing as a team were Mike, Gage and Riley Runyon of Crawfordville. Daddy Mike was glowing with pride during the Junior Division awards as he watched both boys receive medals. Nine-yearold Gage took rst place for a 17.3 pound snapper that set a record for the juniors. It was the only record set in this years competition. Little brother Riley hauled in a snapper that weighed almost eleven pounds to win third place. It was the boys rst tournament. Mateo La Sorsa of Orlando, shing in the Junior Division for the second time maintained his rst place status for grouper for the second year and took additional medals for snapper, king mackerel and Spanish mackerel. This year, the tournament changed its venue for the rst time since 2006. The competition was staged from the Moorings, the site of the original competition. The Moorings is where we started and, for our silver anniversary, we thought we would like to get back to our roots. Its a great space and a great staff. Lambert said. He said he plans to stage the competition at the Moorings again next year with very few changes. Lambert said despite having fewer sh to offer the charity auction, the awards on Sunday netted more than last year with more than $1,000 paid for unwanted sh donated for sale. Another change in this years competition was the introduction of voice stress analysis to spot check anglers and prevents the propagation of sh tales. According to Lambert, the tournament has used polygraph equipment for at least the four years he has served on the board. The voice stress analysis was used to screen potential polygraph subjects. It saves the tournament some money, Lambert said. Polygraph tests are more expensive. We just want to make sure the integrity of the tournament is intact. People will cheat if you let them. We try not to let them, he said. He said an angler who refuses a spot test will not receive his or her check but added the tournament has never had to withhold payment. As always, the Saltwater Classic bene ted the Organization for Arti cial Reefs (OAR). Founded in 1985, OAR serves the recreational saltwater shing industry of Floridas Big Bend Gulf Coast by promoting the professional development of public arti cial reefs. Since 1987, OAR has created or enhanced more than 30 named reefs in the Big Bend Gulf. OAR collaborates with cities and counties as well as state and federal governments to create and maintain arti cial reefs. OAR also collaborates with marine research agencies, other arti cial reef groups and the academic community. COMEJOINUSFORTHE... 4 TH OFJULY SIDEWALKSALE!

Repairs resulting from water intrusion and eventual rotting of the coring materials sandwiched between berglass. The damaged area should be opened up, damaged coring removed, new coring material, cut to t and ready to install. Remove the new piece of coring, grind bottom layer of original berglass, clean thoroughly with vacuum cleaner or blow out with compressed air. Wipe down area with acetone, apply un-thickened coat of epoxy or polyester resin to bottom surface and bottom surface of coring. Allow ve to 10 minutes to be absorbed. Apply second coat of thickened epoxy or resin, thicken with micrabaloons, collidal silica or West Systems adhesive ller (my preference) and reinstall coring piece. Pour thickened mixture around perimeter of coring to ll void. Next, wet out top of coring with un-thickened epoxy or resin, allow to be absorbed, apply three to four layers of woven roven berglass mat allowing to overlap beveled edges of original panel, three to ve inches. Apply mat, pour epoxy or resin and spread or brush until berglass mat is saturated and carefully push out any air bubbles/voids. Apply second and third layers of mat as we did with the rst. Allow several minutes for last layer to become slightly tacky. Make up a nal thickened mixture of epoxy or resin, pour onto top and brush or spread to conceal pattern of berglass mat. Allow 12-24 hours for materials to harden, wipe off top nish with soap and water and allow to dry. Now begin sanding with 60-80 grit paper, sand off high spots and any/all the gloss that has formed on top coat. Next week we will cover lling and sanding to conceal repair.

Big snapper are holding on near shore and offshore wrecks from 60-150 feet of water. Live bait will prove to be the best for bigger fish, however, snapper will eat cut bait as well. Try fishing 20 feet off the bottom with a live grunt or pinfish for a trophy red snapper. As the summertime weather patterns start to set in, bay fishing will be a game of early and late. Early morning top water action will produce nice trout and redfish catches. Late afternoon fishing will be mainly live bait and grubs and jigs, and as the water cools down, try switching back to a top water hard bait for a trophy redfish or trout. Flounder are showing up in the normal places this week from Mexico Beach to Indian Pass.SPONSORED BY

By WES LOCHER229-7843 |@PSJ_Star wlocher@star .com A 2009 graduate of Port St. Joe High School, Heather Brinkmeier is headed to Sydney, Australia, to compete in the Down Under Cup Challenge as part of the Australia International Softball Challenge in July. I had to read it twice, said Brinkmeier of the invitation she received in September of last year. Brinkmeier will y to Los Angeles on July 20 and take a connecting ight to Sydney the following day. Shell have two days in Australia to sight-see before jumping into a daily practice regimen with a team made up of complete strangers. Its exciting and nerve-wracking, she said of playing such a high-pro le tournament alongside girls shes never met. Im going to work my butt off. Shell have plenty of time to amp herself to meet her new teammates on the 15-hour ight. USA Athletes International works to bring the worlds athletes together though sports and education and chose 14 females from across the United States to gather as a team halfway across the globe to compete against players from Australia, Italy and Prague. The daughter of Steve and Christine, Brinkmeier was recommended to the team by her former coaches as well as those from opposing teams. Candidates also had to be in good academic standing. In high school, Brinkmeier was a four-year letter winner for Coach Jim Belin and helped the Lady Tiger Sharks to a runner-up nish in the state Class 2A Tournament her senior year when PSJ nished 27-3. She was third-team All-State as a senior out elder and had a home run and three RBIs in the regional title game; two hits and an RBI in the state semi nals. She hit .284 with ve doubles and two triples as a junior when she helped lead the Lady Tiger Sharks to a regional championship. While in high school she also played volleyball and basketball and was a member of the cheerleading squad. Further, Brinkmeier played travel ball for Team North Florida with Coach Coy Adkins, an assistant coach at University of Florida and now a coach at the University of Arkansas from 2006-08. The team placed 30th out of 165 teams at the 2006 nationals in Seattle. In 2007 the team placed third in the World Series and second in 2008. She was a member of the Panama City Lady Lightning with Coach Bubba Hill from 2006-10. The team won a USFA World Series in 2006. In junior college Brinkmeier played two seasons for head Coach Tommy McDaniel at Lurleen B. Wallace Community College in Andalusia, Ala., where she hit over .300 both years with a combined 14 home runs and 55 RBIs. She transferred to Florida Southern College in Lakeland but had a medical redshirt for the 2011-12 softball seasons because of a labrum tear in her right shoulder. She said she feels back to 100 percent. In her junior year she played all 49 games at rst base and had a elding percentage of .978 while rehabilitating. Though Brinkmeier is beyond excited for the Australian experience, shes unsure what competition she may face down under. When softball was an Olympic sport, Australia had one of the top teams, added Brinkmeier. Brinkmeier hopes that the experience will lead to additional travel opportunities or as a springboard into the coaching world. Its enough for me just to go there and compete, Brinkmeier said. Even if we lose, its about the experience but Im going to win. In addition to representing the United States and Port St. Joe at the tournament, shes also excited to get some relaxation in during the international trip. According to the itinerary, theyll teach us how to surf during the day, and well get to tour the zoo, Brinkmeier said. On June 22, a fundraiser will be held for Brinkmeier at the Rustic Sands campground from 4-10 p.m. CT featuring food, drinks, raf es and live music. Funds raised will go toward her ight to Los Angeles. PORT ST. JOE WEWAHITCHKA PORT ST.

What would that photographer see if he was transported to the present? By WES LOCHER229-7843 |@PSJ_Star wlocher@starfl.com For those keeping track of the upcoming Centennial Celebration activities, a kite flying contest had been added to the expansive list of events happening to celebrate the upcoming 100th birthday of Port St. Joe. The kite event will take place on Sunday, June 30 at George Core Park. The Centennial Celebration Committee, appointed by Mayor Mel Magidson in October, wanted to ensure that the events were full of family fun. Food plates with hamburgers or hotdogs will be served for $5 and trophies will be awarded for age categories eight and under, nine to 14 and 15-and-up. Prizes will be given away for highest flying kite, best homemade kite, best store bought kite and overall champion kite flyer. Also on hand will be carnival games including a football toss, basketball booth, corn hole, a hula hoop area and a water misting station to stay cool. The event is a joint fundraiser between the Gulf County Soccer Boosters, Port St. Joe Youth Soccer and Port St. Joe Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). We wanted to do something affordable and fun, said Mike Lacour, Financial Analyst at City Hall and coordinator of the event. As president of the Gulf County Soccer Boosters, Lacour and his wife, Becky have supported the youth athletic community for years and saw the kite flying event as a great way to raise funds for a local soccer coach, a position not budgeted by Gulf County Schools. The Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf Guild will also run a preliminary Duck Derby prior to a larger-scale event planned for the Scallop Festival in August. Kids will be able to adopt a rubber duck and the first one across the parks lagoon will win prizes. Food will be provided Centennial events encourage kids to go y a kiteSee KITE B5By WES LOCHER229-7843 |@PSJ_Star wlocher@star .com The annual 4-H Horse Camp with the Big River Riders took place last week at T.L. James Park in Wewahitchka. The program is part of the University of Floridas Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences extension program that brings farming, horticulture and environmental science skills to kids ages 8-18 in Gulf County. This program allows kids to manage their horses better and perform at events a whole lot better, said Gulf County Extension director Roy Lee Carter. The four-day camp focused on horsemanship, speed classes, showmanship, pleasure and trail riding and the care of the horse and riding tack. In addition to spending their mornings on horseback, afternoon classes on nutrition for their horses and their riders allowed the 14-person class to escape the summer heat. Jean McMillian is in her 41st year as a leader with 4H and her fourth overseeing the horse program. I do it for the children, said McMillian. We have a very good group of parents and a congenial group of young men and women. She praised 4-H and its various programs for its role in developing good citizens while encouraging members to make the best better. McMillians goal is to teach responsibility and shed light on the important role it plays in creating good attitudes and good sportsmanship. Even though the club members compete against one another at horse shows, they encourage and root for their fellow riders. McMillian is thankful for the extension programs and the good qualities they develop in children. Roy is the backbone of the program, said McMillian. He works hard for the children in the county.

Although we havent had a hurricane this season. it doesnt hurt to be prepared. The arrival of hurricane season signals the need to develop a contingency plan to guard our lives and property from powerful winds and ooding rains. Ornamental plants and other landscape objects are especially vulnerable. One of the most important protective measures is to stake down any new trees and shrubs on your home grounds. By new we mean any small trees or large shrubs youve planted within the past year. The stakes should be two or three feet long. Youll need three or four per tree. Drive them into the soil to a depth of 18 to 24 inches, slanting them away from the tree at a 45-degree angle. This will make them more secure and less likely to be pulled out. How far you place the stake from a tree will depend on its size. A general rule is to locate the stakes the same distance from the base of the tree as the height above the ground at which you plan to attach the guide wires. To secure the wire and keep them from slipping off, make notches in the stakes a few inches from the top of each. Then attach wires in these notches and run them to a point about two-thirds up the trunk. Before attaching the wires to the tree, run them through lengths of garden hose to protect the bark. Now, tighten the wires enough to prevent excessive tree movement, but not so high that they might break or, worse yet, cause the tree to break in high winds. In addition to staking and guiding small trees and shrubs, you should inspect larger trees for broken, dead or damaged limbs and remove these as soon as possible. Hurricane winds can tear such limbs from a tree, and turn them into dangerous projectiles. However, remember that it is not a good idea to prune healthy branches before a hurricane, because this encourages new growth, which is very vulnerable to wind damage. During the storm season, it is especially important to keep gutters clear of leaves, twigs and other debris. Drainage should be at its best to cope with heavy hurricane rains. If you have hanging baskets, tub plants, or large potted plants on exposed porches or patios, they should be moved indoors ahead of the storm. Hurricane winds can damage or completely destroy both exposed plants and containers. Other loose items, which can be hurled about, such as lawn furniture, garden tools, toys, and garbage cans, also should be brought inside before strong winds strike. In addition to being severely damaged or destroyed, such objects can become lethal ying objects during a hurricane. While we all hope our state avoids serious hurricane damage this season, its still very important to be prepared. So, check your home grounds thoroughly, keeping our precautionary pointers in mind. And, if you detect potential dangers, take corrective action promptly. For more information on landscape preparedness call the Gulf County Extension Service at 639-3200 or visit our website: gulf.ifas.u.edu or www. edis.ifas.u.edu and see Publication HS 1021, FOR 115 and HS 1066.

HORSIN from page B1Special to The Star Women seeking timely, convenient and compassionate health care have more options this year, thanks to the expansion of gynecologic services to Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulfs Womens Center. Certied Nurse Practitioner Nancy Anderson began seeing patients at Womens Health Center in the hospitals Medical Ofce Building on May 15. Her services allow women to receive a full complement of screenings, including PAP smears, at their annual mammograms. Previously, the womens center provided mammography, ultrasound and bone density testing. This additional service will allow women in our community to meet all of their preventive, reproductive health screenings at one location, close to home, said Anderson. Current guidelines from the American Cancer Society recommend that women between the ages of 21 and 29 have a pelvic exam and Pap smear every three years. Women between the ages of 30 and 65 should have a pelvic exam, a Pap smear and an HPV test every ve years. However Anderson, who received her training at the Northwestern State University in Shreveport, LA and a subsequent doctorate of nursing practice from UAB explains, It is vital that we do not confuse the recommendation of less frequent Pap tests with the unchanged recommendation of annual pelvic health exams. To schedule an appointment with Anderson or the Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf Womens Center call 229-5680.

Nashville-native Whitaker is the author of a dozen food-related books including, Smoke in the Mountains: The Art of Appalachian Barbecue and Checkered Flag Cooking: Tailgating Stock Car Racing. For the past 25 years, hes lived in Chattanooga, Tennessee with his wife Ally, son Macee and three dogs. By day, Whitaker works in graphics and advertising, but he has a separate life dedicated to the love of writing, cooking, and writing about cooking, a love that netted him an appearance on the Food Network television channel where he won the Emeril Live Barbecue Contest. In Whitakers separate life, theres a place that he desires to retire to and write for the remainder of his days: a little place known as Gulf County. It was 20 years ago that the Whitakers went searching for a southern vacation spot that would have crystal waters, beautiful beaches and, most importantly, be dog-friendly. After some searching, the Whitakers landed in Gulf County and now return several times a year. Its full of friendly people, said Whitaker. Even as a visitor, you feel like you live there. The husband and wife enjoyed the community surrounding area so much that they got a condo on Cape San Blas and became involved with local events and charities. It was while visiting his son at North Georgia College and State University that the idea for Bullets and Bread came together. While browsing a local gift shop at the base, Whitaker spied a copy of one of his other cookbooks and offered to sign the copy for the clerk. Another store patron approached Whitaker and asked to purchase the inscribed book. This started up some friendly conversation between the men and soon the veteran shared an anecdote about the challenges of barbecuing in Kuwait during the Gulf War. Another veteran in the shop, having heard the conversation, stepped in and talked about the large celebrations of food his naval unit would have each time they crossed the equator. Whitaker, entranced by the stories, immediately knew what his next book would be about. Having already written numerous cookbooks, the author wanted to take a different approach with his exciting new idea. As a contributor to the Chattanooga Free Press, Chattanooga Business Journal and Racing Milestones Magazine, he sought a way to combine his journalism background with the food-centric stories. I didnt want it to simply be a list of recipes, said Whitaker. I wanted it to be about the stories and the people. When he pitched the idea to his publisher, History Publishing Company, Whitakers plan was to share the stories of veterans from all of the wars. The publisher saw potential in the idea, but recommended that Whitaker focus on WWII veterans, noting that they were disappearing at a much quicker rate and there was history to be preserved. From concept to nished product, Bullets and Bread took four years to reach completion. Whitaker spent countless hours locating veterans with tting stories, traveling, meeting and running them through his extensive interview process. Going in, he doubted that hed nd enough contributors, but to his surprise, each conversation led to additional recommendations of veterans to speak with. Museum historians, Memorial Day events and Fourth of July celebrations also provided valuable connections. For those veterans that the author couldnt meet with face-to-face, additional time was spent on correspondence via the telephone, email and old fashioned, handwritten letters. Understanding that war time is never a popular conversation topic, Whitaker was happy that bad food often brought a smile to the faces of the 50 plus veterans he spoke with bringing up stories that contained more laughter than heartbreak. They didnt get too emotional telling their stories, but I sure got tore up listening to them! said Whitaker. Topics ranged from soldiers who were fed up of eating mutton stew and searched out alternatives, to tales of shing with dynamite, to stories of hungry soldiers who would try almost anything to avoid eating spam one more time. Organization was the key to creating the content for the book and very little technology was used when it came to the interview process. I did everything the good old fashioned way, said Whitaker, I listened and took notes. In addition to the book, Whitaker has plans for a TV show called Chow Line (the books original title) that he envisions as a combination of the Food Network programming and military history. His ultimate goal for the show would be to feature a cook-off between the Coast Guard and the Navy, two military branches known for the quality of their chow. Whitakers bibliography also includes two childrens books and an ongoing project to produce a book of hometown recipes for each of the 50 states. Hes also a member of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary and serves on the National Staff as an AUXCHEF and National Branch Chief. He currently serves the USCG 8th Eastern. The book makes a perfect gift for a foodie or a history buff, said the author. Its World War II history in a completely different light--History that should not get lost.

The committee spawned multiple subcommittees, painstakingly mapping every moment of a week-long birthday celebration. “In all, 48 members of the community have participated on these committees,” said Dana Boyer of the Centennial Celebration committee. “So if you think this is coming from a couple of people, it is not.” The celebration kicks off next Friday, June 28 and continues through July 5 and will include a special July Fourth reworks display, which Boyer, who has raised private funds to put on the reworks, will be at least a $15,000 display. The birthday festivities will have something special each day, from a parade on Friday recognizing prominent families and individuals to an alumni basketball game on July 5 at the former Washington High School gym. There will be interactive light shows, music, a “family” day, outdoor movies in the park, a car show, birthday cake and a display of a timeline tracing in photos the history of Port St. Joe. “The thing we want people to understand is we want everybody who was born here, raised here or lived here to participate,” said Mayor Mel Magidson. “There is something for everyone.” Boyer said the committee had raised more than $26,000 in cash and in-kind donations for the event. “We would not be where we are without these in-kind contributions,” Boyer said. She said there was a possibility of another major sponsor and her numbers did not include pro t from the sale of commemorative coins. “The coins sales have gone well,” Magidson said. “We have covered the cost of the coins and whatever more we make will go to the event.” After the event, the committee will publish an 80-page softcover book of historic and celebration photos. “Whatever we spent money on (such as the timeline) it wasn’t for a one-shot deal,” Boyer said. “We wanted to be able to use it year after year.” Boyer also urged those joining the celebration to visit one of two Facebook pages. The Centennial Celebration has a page and there is another page titled, “If you grew up in Port St. Joe, you remember…” which includes recollections from current and former residents. The Port St. Joe Centennial Celebration also has a web site with full schedule of events. A schedule will also be published in next week’s edition of The Star. PSJRA MOVE Calling a morning workshop on a city/county interlocal agreement (see story A2) “productive” during which a “lot was resolved” commissioners moved to approve the move of the Port St. Joe Redevelopment Agency to the Local Color Chamber of Commerce building. Commissioner Rex Buzzett made the motion in “good faith” in hopes that the city and county will work through differences on the interlocal agreement. Travel request brings questions By TIM CROFT 227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@starfl.co m Months ago County Commissioner Joanna Bryan asked the Clerk of Courts for travel records pertaining to commissioners, staff and several annual conferences. When the records were provided for public viewing during the last regular meeting of the Board of County Commissioners, at least two commissioners wondered about their accuracy. Bryan made her request earlier this year after presented with a board motion to approve travel by Commissioner Warren Yeager in advance, providing a blanket approval for travel to speci c meetings. At the time, before voting, Bryan asked the Clerk’s of ce to provide travel numbers for county attendance for the Florida Association of Counties annual meeting, the annual convention of the National Association of Counties and the Florida Small Counties Coalition. She wanted those records for the previous two scal years. What the Clerk’s of ce provided, budget and nance ofcer Sherry Herring said, was the travel of all county staff, commissioners’ in-county travel and travel to those three conferences as well as a breakdown by district. However, Herring said the system she was trying to pull information from was only as good as the information that was put in the system and that left her efforts to answer Bryan’s questions constrained. The breakdown by district, she said, could be off due to the way the system is set up and how and who uses county credit cards to pay for the travel. Hearing looms large for Port Authority By TIM CROFT 227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@starfl.co m A hearing next month will have signi cant impact, for better or worse, on development at the Port of Port St. Joe. The hearing, scheduled for July 17 before Circuit Court Judge Shonna Gay Young, is on a motion to foreclose on 67 acres of port land brought by Capital City Bank. Both sides seek summary judgment, meaning there is no dispute of material legal facts. The bank seeks foreclosure due to a $4.3 million loan in arrears — the Port Authority has not made a payment on principle in at least two years. The Port Authority’s defense is that the body lacked authority, under state law, to mortgage public property without a public referendum in the rst place. A decision, port attorney Tom Gibson said, would not be expected immediately. “The most likely outcome is the judge makes no decision” that day, Gibson said. The 67 acres represents the port’s barge terminal, the bulkhead and uplands. The improvements to the property, in the millions, came from state and federal grant funds. Port Authority members have publicly and consistently stated the intent to pay the debt, but currently there is no revenue. The hearing complicates a request from the Board of County Commissioners. During recent meetings, several commissioners have pressed the port about a $199,000 economic development loan — a fraction of 1 percent of funds received by the port in the past decade — the port received last year. Port Authority Chairman Leonard Costin appeared before the BOCC a few weeks ago to inquire if the debt payment schedule could be amended due to the port’s current lack of revenue. The Port Authority has 10 months to make the initial payment. County Commissioner Ward McDaniel asked if the Port Authority would be willing to consider as collateral a mortgage on the old Arizona Chemical property; 100 acres and infrastructure donated to the Port Authority by the parent company of Arizona Chemical. “I understand where they are coming from but I don’t see any reason to restructure the agreement,” said board member Patrick Jones, who has long expressed opposition to any encumbrances of Arizona DAN CHRISTIE | Special to The Star The sunset over St. Joseph Bay had a particular glow this past Sunday as Father’s Day drew to a close.

After sniping over an interlocal agreement for months, commis sioners spent 90 minutes poring over the document in order to agree on any revisions. No decisions were made at what was a workshop. And no agreement was reached on the two central is sues: amending the interlocal to change how a re tax for Wind Mark Beach is collected and the moving of the Port St. Joe Rede velopment Agency from the Gulf County Tourist Development Council Welcome Center, which is leased to the TDC by the city. Near the conclusion of the workshop, County Commissioner Joanna Bryan urged city com missioners to allow the PSJRA, which is currently paying rent for two ofce spaces and is largely operating out of boxes, to move by the end of June. Bo Spring, a director on the PSJRA board, said he would make a motion at the PSJRA’s meeting on Thursday to allow the move and hoped the city would be sup portive (See related story A1). When asked by the county ear lier this year to allow the move, the city of Port St. Joe balked for several reasons and asked the county to revisit the re tax is sue, which the city urged should be divided among the three vol unteer re departments that re spond to WindMark Beach. The development of Wind Mark Beach and annexation by the city resulted in the interlocal agreement the two sides signed in 2005. The city sought an amend ment to the re tax issue almost two years ago, said Mayor Mel Magidson. He said the county request to move the PSJRA provided an opening to again broach the subject. He said Bryan’s assertion that the re tax and PSJRA move were linked was “far-fetched.” And he noted that the county’s response to the city’s request was to allow the city to collect the re tax in return for conveying to the county the land on which the Welcome Center sits and the city taking over re protection in Oak Grove, an unincorporated area. “Now, those two are not linked to the interlocal agreement,” Magidson said. “I’d like to be treated the way the county wants to be treated.” Bryan countered that she was not talking about linkage as much as “logic.” She said elected of cials must be stewards of every tax dollar and it made no “logical sense” to continue to hold up the PSJRA move. City Commissioner Rex Buzzett said he was the commis sioner who broached the PSJRA move, in large part because he did not want PSJRA operational costs to increase due to the move. He said the lease agreement for the Welcome Center a provi sion the county provide space to the Chamber and PSJRA, to which it was not adhering. He also noted the city has gone deeply in debt meeting the provisions of the interlocal. “We have agreements and we are both going to have to live by these agreements,” Buzzett said. “Let’s keep working on these agreements.” Yeager added, “We do have agreements but we haven’t al ways bound to them.” The re tax issue was among 15 items commissioners reviewed with attorneys, staff and the pub lic present. In general, there was much common ground on the majority of the 15 items, some remain to be further eshed out, better dened or amended in their entirety. That included a guarantee that all users of the city’s water and sewer, in the city limits or out, are charged identically. Bryan, as she did at the previ ous BOCC meeting, was hesitant about amending the agreement at all. “The city wanted to annex WindMark Beach and agreed to these provisions,” Bryan said. “I think this is a big issue to go in and change this agreement.” City attorney Tom Gibson not ed that the agreement was likely most important to Bryan because her predecessor representing District 3 drew up much of the agreement on the county side. “Much of what is in here is be cause (former commissioner) Mr. (Bill) Williams wanted it in there,” Gibson said. Commissioners will be pro vided a revised document, based on comments made Tuesday, in the coming weeks to consider for a formal vote. “I appreciate everyone com ing,” Yeager said. “It’s been a productive workshop. Most of our constituents are the same. It behooves us all for us to work together.” PSJ, county workshop interlocal By TIM CROFT 227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@starfl.co m The announced overhaul of medical services at the Wewahitchka Gulf Depart ment Health Clinic begins July 1. The last day the Florida Department of Health will provide primary care medi cal services at the clinic, located on State 22, will be June 30, a Sunday. As of the following day, the medical clinic will be closed for approximately two weeks. Roger Hall, president of Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf, told the Board of County Commissioners last week that he expects Sacred Heart will restart primary care services sometime in mid-July. “We are actually going to expand the services from what they are now,” Hall told commissioners. “We should be back up and running by mid-July; as soon as we can get our people in there.” Primary care services include acute and chronic illness visits, well-child and sick visits for children, Be havioral Health and lab col lections for Health Depart ment patients. The Florida Department of Health for Gulf County will continue to provide pub lic health services through the transition. Dental services for adults and children, environmen tal health, Healthy Start, School Health and Tobacco Cessation and Prevention programs will continue dur ing the transition. WIC will continue to have a presence the rst and third Friday of each month and immunizations will also be done those two days. Family planning ser vices will continue to be offered the rst Tuesday of each month. Birth certicates will continue to be provided. “I have advocated that there be no interruption of services to the north end of the county,” said Mar sha Lindeman, executive director of the Gulf County Health Department. “Ser vices are being increased for primary care by the pro vider most able to provide those services.” Lindeman’s bottom line for primary care services has bled $500,000 over re cent years due to budget cuts to primary care ser vices by the Florida Depart ment of Health. Compounding the prob lem is that the Wewahitchka clinic has been without a physician for two years, with the resultant drop in fees and, she said last week, she inherited budget which funded services with dollars she wasn’t going to be able to ledger anymore. With the Federally Quali ed Health Clinic (FQHC) operating under the umbrel la of the Gulf County Health Department, Lindeman can leverage federal funds to provide dental care on both ends of the county and pri mary care in Port St. Joe. Over 50 percent of those seen under the FQHC are uninsured, she noted. Lindeman said the coun ty pays a smaller percent age to the Health Depart ment budget than any other county in the state with an operating FQHC. The only area she could cut, she told the BOCC last week, was primary care in Wewahitchka. But, the positive was the long-standing partnership between Health Depart ment and Sacred Heart which stretches back to be fore Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf opened more than three years ago. Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf will operate a health clinic from the same health department facility currently in use for primary care services. “I felt this was the opti mal plan for providing pri mary care services,” Linde man said. Medical Records Release forms are available now at the Gulf County Health De partment for patients tran sitioning from the health department to Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf for Pri mary Care Services. For more information please contact the Gulf County Health Department at 227-1276, ext. 205. Changes at Wewahitchka Health Department begin July 1

She also said she would receive vouchers with only the name of a hotel on it, but no indication about the circumstances of the stay. She had more than one travel voucher that “does not state what it is for.” Herring agreed with commis sioners who suggested the BOCC and Clerk’s ofce look at the way travel forms are coded and how information is entered into the Clerk’s system. McDaniel disputed the accuracy of the numbers and noted that tax payer dollars were involved. “This is people’s money,” Mc Daniel said. In an email to Bryan, Herring noted the restrictions she was op erating under. “Given our resources I have at tached the best summary I am able to provide in this time frame,” Her ring wrote on April 9, roughly two months after Bryan’s request. Herring also noted that the outof-county travel numbers were sole ly for the conferences requested. “As we discussed, I have broken down the commissioner’s travel by the conferences you specically re quested,” Herring continued. “Do ing so for other departments and/or additional conferences would take additional time.” Herring said during the board meeting that while district num bers might skew depending on cir cumstances, “The overall totals are correct.” Overall, commissioners spent $31,846.77 in 2011 and over $32,000 in 2012 to travel to the FAC, NACO and SCC meetings, as well as what is noted as “other” travel which in volves only Yeager ($2,133 in 2011; $5,133 the next year) and former Commissioner Bill Williams ($4,116 in 2011; $8,471 in 2012). Commissioner Carmen McLemore did not attend any con ferences, but the four other com missioners attended the FAC and NACO conferences and the Clerk’s records indicate the county admin istrator and attorney also attended. In addition, the ve commis sioners combined to spend $24,740 in 2011 and $23,413 in 2012 for incounty travel, with Williams and McLemore each claiming at least $6,000 in 2011 in-county travel alone. In addition, staff travel, in-coun ty or not, totaled $66,579 in 2011 — $26,670 is labeled “Other General Fund Travel” which is paid from the same fund from which commission ers are paid — and $75,937 in 2012. In 2012, $33,556 of that travel again was labeled “Other General Fund Travel” and was paid from the same fund as commissioners. That put the narrow travel totals provided by the Clerk, restricted to the three major conferences, incounty and staff travel, at $123,166 in 2011 and $131,458 in 2012. “I think we need to look at how we can improve on keeping track of expenses,” Bryan said. “I think we need to make some improvements.” Agenda changes The BOCC also got its rst look at a proposed process for crafting the agenda, which would require commissioners to place items on the agenda by a deadline or seek approval of a super-majority (four votes) at the beginning of the meet ing to amend the agenda to include any additional items requiring a vote. In seeking that amendment, the commissioner must explain the purpose for inclusion in the agenda. The process would be similar for staff to bring an item to the BOCC after deadline, but the request for an amendment must come from a commissioner. Any request from the public that arrived after the deadline would fol low the same procedure. The document was drafted by county attorney Jeremy Novak. The goal is to increase public awareness and transparency re garding the issues and topics to be discussed, the policy stated. Bryan asked that commission ers review the policy and come back with suggested revisions at the next BOCC meeting. TRAVEL from page A1 Chemical parcel. The county is second in line behind Capital City Bank on the mortgage for the barge terminal parcel. The Circuit Court hearing will impact the county’s posi tion. Should the bank prevail, the county’s position is moot. Should the port prevail, it would be unlikely, Gibson noted, that any port property could be mortgaged without a public referendum. “I can’t tell you you will have the power to give any body a mortgage,” Gibson said. Board member Eugene Rafeld suggested and the board agreed to ask the BOCC if the Port Author ity could delay any decision until after the foreclosure hearing. “We are very concerned and want to pay everything that we owe,” Rafeld said. “But we can’t make a deci sion until after Capital City Bank is addressed. “We want (the BOCC) in the loop. They have to be re sponsible for that money. We need to be good stewards.” The county dollars are fed eral economic development dollars meant to be a revolv ing loan program by which the BOCC awards the money to various businesses for ex pansion or development. When the money is repaid it is awarded to another eli gible entity. Rafeld Fisheries used the same funds to expand its freezer capacity at its sh house. Dredging/Master Plan Gibson and port director Tommy Pitts told the board the update to the master plan was completed and the Port Authority board formally ad opted the plan and forwarded it to the city of Port St. Joe. The city must hold public hearings before its planning board and commission as part of the process of updat ing the city’s comprehensive plan to include the new port master plan. Pitts said he asked the two engineering rms on continuing contract with the Port Authority to submit statements of qualications specic to maintenance dredging. Pitts said the aim was to dredge to a minimum of 33 feet with the hope of ulti mately going to the federallyauthorized 35 feet. “That opens up all kind of opportunities,” Pitts said, adding that however the fore closure hearing was decided, an operational deepwater port is key to development. Rafeld wondered, as he did at the prior board meet ing, if the Tourist Develop ment Council should be brought into the loop. There is potential some dredge ma terial could be suitable for beach nourishment, he said. “I have always considered beach renourishment as a secondary benet of dredg ing,” Pitts said. Meeting with Montford Costin said he had a meeting Gov. Rick Scott’s of ce with Scott’s chief of staff and state Sen. Bill Montford (R-Tallahassee), who repre sents Gulf County. Montford had attempted to work with Capital City Bank to secure a $2 million state appropriation to par tially address the port mort gage and allow time for port development to take hold. Costin said the meet ing was positive, that it was informational as he related how dynamics changed since collaboration with the St. Joe Company to develop the port was etched in writing. The concern from the gov ernor, Costin indicated, was the lack of tangible progress over recent years despite the investment of millions of state and federal dollars. Costin said he provided in formation and emerged from the meeting, scheduled for 15 minutes but spanning nearly an hour, with optimism the port message, a different one from as little as two years ago, was conveyed. Board communications Pitts addressed board members concerning a let ter to the editor from board member Johanna White published in The Star two weeks ago. Pitts, who outside of ad ministrative dollars in a grant to update the master plan works for $1 per month, said he had not formally respond ed publicly and had hoped White – who was absent – at tended the meeting in order to be able to talk directly. Pitts said he believed the letter incorrectly implied that he “led the board” instead of taking direction from the Port Authority board. Jones asked, motioned and the board approved including Pitts’ complete response to White’s letter into the regular meeting minutes. Costin said the board should handle such matters internally. More than a year ago, shortly after the collaboration agreement with St. Joe was signed, Costin and Gibson emphasized the importance of port ofcials speaking with unied voice and message. PORT from page A1 SETTING IT STR aA IGHT In last week’s story concerning the hiring of a new city clerk in Mexico Beach, it was stated that the council was deciding between two candidates, Sharon McGhee and Christina Marquardt Adams, who was identied without her married name. Adams was not a formal candidate for the position. She had applied during the interview process and during a special meeting the week prior Mayor Al Cathey, with the support of Councilmember Bobby Pollock expressed a desire to interview Adams. The 2-2 vote cited in last week’s story was on a motion to hire McGhee. The Star regrets any confusion.

I wanted to be an auctioneer. It was amazing how the words and sounds just rolled off their tongues. You could get a good dose of the mesmerizing calls every Saturday and Wednesday afternoons out at the old Tri County Stockyards. It seemed to my little ten year old mind to be some type of controlled pandemonium. They would be running cows, steers, bulls, sheep, hogs and/or Billy goats into that sawdust covered area just as fast as humanly possible. A short pause lasted only long enough to let the auctioneer wield his magic, a few hands to rise and the nod of a head or two to bobble in the wrap around audience. That animal was sold and you better get your eyes focused quickly on the gate to the far left the next lot was being herded in. I tried to take it all in at once! It was fun to guess how high the bid would go on certain breeds. Bulls, without question, brought the most money. And a lot more cows were sold than anything else. Hog prices, according to Dad, hinged on whether we were buying... or selling! Ive seen bulls near bout leap into the crowd. Ive seen hogs chase handlers around the arena. Ive seen mules sit down right in the middle of the auction and refuse to get up. I saw a cow once start into labor right on the sales oor. The folks in the audience were often more fun to watch than the four legged guys in the arena. Half of them showed up every time the sales doors opened and never bid on a thing. I reckon grown-ups liked to hear the auctioneer too. Or maybe, they had an old heifer or a young yearling they were trying to handicap as to value. Things moved a mite slow back in the mid fties. Perhaps this was simply the best action in town. The seating arrangements were kinda like church. People apparently were assigned to the same place sale after sale. The aggressive bidders usually were down on the rst row. They would bid early and often but didnt buy as much as you might think. A late nod from the back row would take a steer home quicker than you could say, What are you going to give for it... Some guys waved frantically like they were proud to be bidding. Or they didnt want the auctioneer, or you, to miss the fact that they had cash money and were ready to deal. Some did it with a slight raise of one nger. Another might drop his head slightly. And still another might move his head up just enough to make direct eye contact with the auctioneer. The guy behind the mike didnt miss a one. Without question, he was in charge. And he seldom slowed the tempo. I just could not believe that anyone could talk so rapidly without seemingly ever taking a breath. And he did it all in some type of rhythm that kept perfect time with the braying of the livestock, the ruckus of the handlers prodding and turning the sales objects, the calls for popcorn and cold drinks ringside and the general din that accompanied any place that had a large audience actively participating in the ongoing proceedings. The auctioneer would only slow the pace if the price wasnt to his liking. Comeon now, youre not looking at this one. Take a good long gander at her anks, the straight back, the general size of her, shell throw calves half grown! Were at sixty two, fty, wholl give me seventyve, I need seventyve... It wasnt quite as good as the circus but it didnt miss it by much. And it didnt cost nothing, unless you ran your ngers through your hair at exactly the wrong moment! I asked Dad once why they only held these wonderful sales on Saturdays and Wednesdays. I was expecting him to explain it took a while to round up the appropriate animals to sell. Son, he didnt hesitate, two days a week is about all they can stand. On what do you want to be day in elementary school I never picked doctor, lawyer or reman. I proudly proclaimed that I was going into the auctioneering business. Id fall asleep on Saturday nights rehearsing, Well, Im at twentyve here, wholl give me thirty, I got thirty, wholl make forty, wholl give forty, Ive got thirty now, wholl bid... I took a job with Colonel James T. Birddog Reed as a recorder when I was in high school. He auctioned off house and farm estates. Id write down Zenith table model as he began to tell how this particular radio could bring in the Grand Ole Opry a week ahead of time and then hed go into that familiar chant. Id put down Mr. Chadwick and the amount he paid when the gavel fell. Wouldnt it be great to come back from auctioneer school and take Mr. Martins place at the Tri County Stockyards! Or I could go into business with Birddog hawking those old lamps, wringer washers and China cabinets. My parents insisted on college. They preferred English and biology over hogs and Dutch ovens. It was probably just as well. Tri County Stockyards went out of business years ago... and people dont do much auctioning at yard sales now-a-days. But late at night, when everyone is asleep, or when Im alone in the car, Ill sell a Brahma bull, a lot of Black Angus or an old 175 International tractor. Old dreams die hard... Respectfully, Kes Most folks enjoy coffee in the morning. Most is accurate. According to statistics, about 100 million in America are daily coffee drinkers; percentagewise, that is over 50%. Therefore, most is accurate. It seems like a lot of people have turned to those single serving coffee machines with the little plastic cups that not only allow you make coffee on a whim, but also tea and hot chocolate. I have one of those, but the cost still bothers me. Im one of those people who will check the coffee pot for leftovers late at night and if there is any, Ill put it in the microwave. Ive also heard of folks keeping leftover coffee in the refrigerator. That makes sense, but I will usually drink it all by the end of the day anyway. At work, its a different story. The fellow who made our coffee nally retired. You know how it is; there is usually one person who is in charge of the coffee making. Sometimes, its a matter of pride or possibly even job security. The retired fellows coffee was actually not good. Im not being honest it was terrible, but I drank it. After he was gone, I found that things can get worse. The next person in charge of coffee made much worse coffee. It was so bad that it forced me to another oor of my building. The folks one oor below dont mind me coming down there; new paying customers are always welcome in an of ce coffee pool. There will always be those who dont pay. There was the added bonus that the downstairs coffee was only 20 cents. Their coffee is really not that good either, but I do not think that it will cause as much damage as the stuff on my oor. Also, the clientele one oor below is a little more interesting. They are more reclusive. In other words, they let you get your coffee and get out rather than engaging you in a conversation about politics or planar fasciitis. Everyone has their own way of collecting money for the of ce coffee. Downstairs, they simply have a red metal box with a little lock on it and one slot on the top to drop your money. For the rst few months, there was one older gentleman, who is affectionately known as Santa Claus who would wander in when I was getting coffee. Santa Claus never said much; sometimes he would grunt or just mumble. It wasnt an unhappy grunt; I think he was just trying to make conversation. Im sure that he has a Ph.D. in something very impressive and is doing some very important research. Seeing him walking down the hall one day behind me, I decided to have a little fun. As he came into the kitchen, I poured a cup of coffee and put my quarter in the red metal box. Then I stood staring at the red metal box. The red metal box has a little black and white plastic frog glued on top. The Santa Claus fellow seemed to be getting anxious. I continued to stand there in front of the coffee pot, staring at the red metal box. I waited a while longer. Finally, Santa Claus let go of a good grunt. Im pretty sure the translation of the grunt would be, Please move, I want my coffee now. I got down for a close examination of the red metal box as if to talk to the black and white plastic frog. Then I calmly said, I put a quarter in there and it still has not given me a nickel back. Then Santa Claus spoke and I could understand him. He said, I dont think it will. I did my best to look confused and I took my coffee and left. It was a good day; I got Santa Claus to talk. Im sure he thinks Im a nut, but thats ok. In the weeks that followed, the black and white plastic frog on the top of the little red metal box disappeared, coffee downstairs went up to 25 cents and then the frog reappeared. Santa Claus could be trying to tell me something or perhaps he was trying to lessen my anxiety about the red metal box not giving change. Im not so sure about what happened to the plastic frog, the coffee seems a little better downstairs, perhaps he had been swimming in the pot and nally got out.

Circulation:1-800-345-8688 CRANKS MY TRACTOR BN Heard OPINION www.starfl.com Thursday, June 20, 2013 A Page 4 Section By Ed McAteer Special to The Star Well, it is summertime and graduation has come and gone. For those who do not rush off to college, I am guessing mom and dad are probably encouraging you to get out and nd a job. And with that being said, I have some advice for you related to the job interview process. No, I am not going to bore you with the mechanics of how to build a resume, merely tell you what employers are looking for in todays work environment and prospective candidate. When starting a job search in todays tough times, many people still stick to re nement of their resume and honing their people skills. Thats good, but someone right out of high school probably doesnt have lots of experience. Strong interpersonal skills are great. Integrity matters. However, the thing that makes all the difference today is simply presenting you as someone who is a problem solver. How do I do this? The best way to train yourself as a problem solver is to research the industry [type of job you desire] and your prospective employer [company you want to work for] and take all the time you need to study about both. Study the employees and customers, suppliers, and business partners. Then, use all that background information that you found to inform yourself so that during the interview, you can be humble in knowing how the company functions and what made them successful. Talk your own passions and talents to the employers challenges; tell them how you can t right in from day one and help them make money, improve customer service, and help solve problems. Do this and you have an opening for a real opportunity to be successful in empowering you for the position. This is important so listen. There is a downside to this strategy. The research required involves so much time and so much effort that only one out of every ten people will even take the time to do it. Are you the one or the other nine? I have never known anyone who has ever taken this advice, prepared themselves by doing the hard work up front and not been hired into the position they were seeking. I often tell those I helped write resumes the number-one thing you need to do is to set up a routine whereby every day make the resume writing and job search your job. Spend two to four hours a day writing and researching to make the difference. Grow yourself powerful and smarter than the person you will be competing against. Something else that is very hard for a young graduate is to take feedback or criticism from someone. You think you know it all when you are young. You dont. When someone is giving you feedback, make him or her feel that it is okay to do so. Let them know that you accept feedback readily and can listen to them with your full intent. If you act defensively, get angry, or pushed back, your advisor will make a note to self: I wont be doing this again. When you make it hard for others to give you feedback, your colleagues, and friends will avoid you. It will help if you think of feedback as simply data and keep it in perspective. You want to combine it with hundreds of other pieces of information but do not supercharge any one piece of it. Adults, want to give feedback to others? The number-one rule of constructive criticism is to make the other person feel safe. You have to let that person know that you care about his or her success while you address their concerns. Also, let me tell the young graduate, there is nothing more important than the incredible impact of compound interest when it comes to saving for retirement. Would you like to have $1 million by the time you reach retirement, usually age 65? You can but it takes discipline. If only someone would have told me about these things when I was 18. About age 18-22, you only need to save three to ve dollars each day. It isnt a lot of money. Skip the soda, cigarettes, or Starbucks coffee and stash the cash. You have to be thoughtful and save every day. So graduate, when you get that job that you have prepared for, remember to take three to ve dollars for your future, and when you are older and wiser, you will awaken one morning and say, Hey, where did all this money come from? It really works. Again, only one of you in nine people will even think about this ever again, less more, do the action that is required. You have to gure out the difference between your wants and your needs. I want many things, but I need very little. My pastor, David Fernandez a few years back told his congregation, we did not need 90 percent of what we have. He started giving away, downsized, and became happier than ever. I did a quick look at my material possessions, and he was right. Most things are luxury and not needed. I learned a lesson, and I do not buy things to impress other people; it is about the things that I need. So when you go into a store, always take that extra second to picture in your mind how disappointed you will be if you do not make that purchase. On the other hand, sleep on it. Most of the time when using that train of thought, you will simply not buy the item. I would be remiss if I did not tell you to try to do good things for others. Giving of your free time or nances well, you cannot out give God, and he richly blesses those who give without restraint and with a cheerful heart. Pray about it and then test him and see for yourself. Graduates today are going to need to save at a greater rate than the generations that have gone before you. Make certain when you are hired in that great job, sign up for the 401(k) plan, especially if it matches all or part of what you contribute and stay in it for as long as you can. Its called getting free money from See MCATEER A5

Dear Editor, At the June 11 regular meeting of the Gulf County BOCC a recommendation was made by Assistant County Administrator, Michael Hammond, for the Gulf County Detention Facility to assume control and responsibility for Gulf County probation services and the pretrial release program. This memorandum was neatly placed in the Consent Agenda packet. Had Commissioner Ward McDaniel not pulled the recommendation for discussion by the full Board, this recommendation (like so many others) would have quietly been approved by the Board without any open discussion for the bene t of the public. Commissioners McDaniel and Bryan voiced their concerns regarding this operational change. Overriding all logic, a 3-2 vote approved Mr. Hammond’s recommendation. No opportunity was given by Chairman Smiley for public input before the vote was taken. So, without any public input and no plan, probation services will soon be provided in-house by county staff. Mr. Hammond states in his memorandum that, “Following my review and analysis of the current program, I submit the foregoing recommendations based on the understanding and assumption that our current correctional facility staff will administer the programs without need for additional personnel from the County Commission.” How so? Will one employee handle the program? Or will several share the duties? How much spare time do jail employees have available to take on additional duties? Where is Mr. Hammond’s review and analysis? He submitted a recommendation to the BOCC without any details of how this operational change will work. He stated during the meeting that the program can be run more ef ciently in-house but did not give any details. What liability issues will result for the County with this change? Do we have certi ed staff to provide all the probation and pretrial services required? How much money is Mr. Hammond projecting as a revenue stream for the County? During Mr. Hammond’s comments I did not hear any estimate of income for the County. Mr. Stewart from Florida Probation Service gave lots of numbers during his comments – I cannot attest to their accuracy – but he had numbers. So many questions remain unanswered. Most disturbing to me was Commissioner Yeager’s rush to get this voted on that day. What was the urgency? Commissioner Yeager stated he had been in discussion with staff for 2-3 months and they have “convinced me” this will work. How did Mr. Butler and Mr. Hammond convince him? Where is the plan? Commissioner Bryan suggested the item be tabled until Mr. Hammond could present the Board with written information on how this program will work – Commissioner Yeager would have none of it. What’s the back story here? All the fees generated go to the Clerk’s of ce to help support the court system. This operational change will not reduce taxpayer burden by one red cent. In fact, I believe this will be an abysmal failure – it will cost taxpayers money, collection rates will go down and open the door for potential lawsuits against the County. Florida Probation Service is a group of trained professionals. Mr. Hammond alluded to some problems with the running of the program. From his speci c complaints I would conclude the problems are of a clerical nature and can easily be resolved between the Clerk’s of ce and Mr. Stewart’s of ce. It was obvious, as the discussion between Mr. Hammond and Mr. Stewart progressed, that Mr. Hammond has other issues with Mr. Stewart. I found Mr. Hammond’s verbal attack on Mr. Stewart extremely unprofessional and certainly in violation of the County’s pledge of civility. It was quite a contrast from just a few months ago when the BOCC warmly applauded the great work that had been done by Florida Probation Service. Mr. Hammond said, “If we make $1 it’s better than what you’re making today because you’re not making anything.” I question the accuracy of that statement. Florida Probation Service currently pays $750 per month ($9,000 per year) to rent an of ce in the Wewahitchka Sheriff’s sub-station plus provides free internet service for the sub-station. The monthly internet fee is $200 per month $2,400 per year. The rental income and free internet will be gone. Sheriff Harrison stated in the June 11 meeting that it will be dif cult to keep the sub-station open without the money from Florida Probation Service. The sub-station is important to the citizens of Wewahitchka – they deserve a law enforcement presence in the northern part of Gulf County. Another wrong-headed decision was made by the BOCC June 11. This takes me back to the vote on moving Public Works to Howard Creek; the vote had to be taken that day. That was a bad decision then and this is a bad decision now. Commissioners Smiley, McLemore and Yeager, your bad judgment will cost the people of Gulf County. Commissioner Yeager, waiting two weeks to at least see a written proposal surely can’t be too much to ask – at the end of the day. Barbara Radcliff Indian Pass P. S. Since the June 11 meeting, the County Attorney has sent a letter to Florida Probation Service requesting they remain on the job until October 1, 2013. All the more curious why the vote had to be taken June 11 if the County wants Florida Probation Service to remain on the job 3 months longer. The contract allows for a 60-day out clause. Again, why the rush to push through this decision? Value perceived or deceived? Dear Editor, Commissioner Joanna Bryan asked months ago for the travel and expense accounting for all the commissioners in an honest transparent effort to determine not only what the real costs are but who they are going to and inevitably a justi cation for all the out of county expenses. In other words, what did we get out of this cost? When we send a commissioner or county representative to a function like the Florida Association of Counties, are we getting what we paid for and what did the investment bring back to the county besides a fake smile, hot air and a fun trip for a public servant? The request was nally answered at the last commission meeting with alarming costs that we have paid and learned that the accounting system needs a little tweaking to accurately tell the public speci cally where our money went. Mrs. Sherry Herring seemed to have her hands tied by existing procedures that made her task dif cult if not impossible at best as she tried to explain in the meeting. If we have improper procedures, wonder was has been happening or missed in the past? Historically, Gulf County took few if any trips and was never involved with the Florida Association of Counties or any other Associations. We have all been told that it is important to spend these dollars to send our Representatives to make sure our community is recognized and not left out of the mysterious “Pots of Money” being passed around. It has been several years, thousands of our dollars and we can see no monetary return of one dollar let alone the hypothetical “Pots of Money”. We would be the rst to support making sure we get recognition with the State especially if you could convince us that if we spend $1,000 we will get that back plus some more. In respect to the RESTORE money, we will get money from that in spite of the trips and it may be that these trips hampered the process of receiving funds and the amount. However, when the funds do appear from whatever effort you can be assured that certain county commissioners will claim the credit when it is not theirs to claim. Typical politics by those who know how to work the system to their favor and not ours. What it appears we are doing with the luxurious trips is providing our public servants with an open check book for vacations and an opportunity for them to advance their personal political agenda, not ours. This is more than evident by a past commissioner who wormed his way to the Chair of the Florida Association of Counties, left here in nancial ruin and is now working in Tallahassee as a lobbyist. How did that help us? Chasing “Pots of Money” is for the adventuresome and nancially stable. It is not advisable if you are in the red as indicated at the last talk of the county budget and cutting back on people and services for the community. We say, “Show me the Money” these trips earned us and provide proof that the suffering our community services and reduction in people was worth it. We do not think you can. Gulf County needs to cut back its travel and expense over 80 percent. It is not necessary to travel this much and it is a proven a waste of money.

That’s what happened with 2009’s Credit Card Accountability Responsibility Disclosure (CARD) Act, which was hailed as legislation that would protect consumers from misleading credit practices. Among other things, the CARD Act requires that people under 21 must have an adult co-signer in order to open a credit account unless they can prove their ability to repay their account balance. This provision was designed to prevent young adults from assuming more debt than they can afford and then being unable to pay it off, thereby ruining their credit standing. So far, so good. Then, in 2011 the Federal Reserve nalized rules around the CARD Act’s “ability to pay” provision. It stated that credit card issuers generally could only consider an applicant’s independent income or assets before issuing a new card or increasing a credit limit, not his or her access to the household’s overall income. An unintended consequence soon emerged: As a result of the ability-topay rule, many spouses or partners over age 21 who don’t work outside the home suddenly found they were unable to open separate credit accounts in their own name, regardless of whether or not they had access to their working spouse/partner’s income. Establishing one’s own credit history is crucial to gaining favorable interest rates and access to credit, especially when non-working spouses get divorced or their spouse dies unexpectedly. Thus many consumers (and their Congressional representatives) were upset. Their displeasure reached the ears of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). Fast forward to October 2012, when the CFPB released a proposal that was expected to ease credit rules for stay-athome spouses or partners. After six months of public review, the CFPB issued a formal amendment to the ability-to-pay rule that essentially says credit card applicants who are at least 21 can factor in a third party’s income or assets when applying for credit card accounts if there’s a reasonable expectation they’ll be able to access those funds to make payments. (This includes income of a spouse or partner, although the rule applies to all applicants, regardless of marital status.) Speaking of unintended consequences, however, remember that even though having at least one credit card or loan in your own name can help you build a strong credit history, it’s important to carefully manage all credit accounts on which you’re named – whether as an individual, cosigner or authorized user – to prevent damage to your credit score. Having a poor credit score can cost a small fortune over a lifetime. You’ll pay higher rates and have a harder time qualifying for mortgages, car loans and credit cards. To maintain – or improve – your credit score: • Always pay all bills on time. • Never exceed credit limits. • Try to keep your credit utilization ratio (the percentage of available credit you’re using) below 30 percent.

By LOIS SWOBODA 653-1819 | @ApalachTimes Lswoboda@star .com The 425 anglers who shed in the 25th annual Big Bend Saltwater Classic battled rough seas last weekend. Matt Lambert, chairman of the tournament, said several captains ended the day early on Saturday and fewer sh were weighed than last year. “We still weighed a lot of sh though,” Lambert said. Paul Osterbye, who shes out of Carrabelle every weekend, said his team experienced 6-8-foot waves for most of the day Saturday. Rough water didn’t dampen everyone’s enthusiasm. Osterbye’s 7-yearold granddaughter Jaylyn Middleton still managed to haul in more than 50 sh, though none made it onto the leaderboard. Aboard the Miss Carla, Dusty May of Port St. Joe took third place for points in the Master’s Division with 255 points. Dusty also made a splash with a monster dolphin he snagged. At 24.9 pounds, the sh was almost twice as heavy as the next runner up. It was a real Father’s Day tournament this year. Aboard the Miss Carla, father Dusty May of Port St. Joe and sons Dusty Junior and Danny took third place for points in the Master’s Division with 255 points. Dusty Junior also made a splash with a monster dolphin he snagged. At 24.9 pounds, the sh was almost twice as heavy as the next runner up. Also shing as a team were Mike, Gage and Riley Runyon of Crawfordville. Daddy Mike was glowing with pride during the Junior Division awards as he watched both boys receive medals. Nine-yearold Gage took rst place for a 17.3 pound snapper that set a record for the juniors. It was the only record set in this year’s competition. Little brother Riley hauled in a snapper that weighed almost eleven pounds to win third place. It was the boys’ rst tournament. Mateo La Sorsa of Orlando, shing in the Junior Division for the second time maintained his rst place status for grouper for the second year and took additional medals for snapper, king mackerel and Spanish mackerel. This year, the tournament changed its venue for the rst time since 2006. The competition was staged from the Moorings, the site of the original competition. “The Moorings is where we started and, for our silver anniversary, we thought we would like to get back to our roots. It’s a great space and a great staff.” Lambert said. He said he plans to stage the competition at the Moorings again next year with very few changes. Lambert said despite having fewer sh to offer the charity auction, the awards on Sunday netted more than last year with more than $1,000 paid for unwanted sh donated for sale. Another change in this year’s competition was the introduction of voice stress analysis to spot check anglers and prevents the propagation of sh tales. According to Lambert, the tournament has used polygraph equipment for at least the four years he has served on the board. The voice stress analysis was used to screen potential polygraph subjects. ”It saves the tournament some money,” Lambert said. “Polygraph tests are more expensive.” “We just want to make sure the integrity of the tournament is intact. People will cheat if you let them. We try not to let them,” he said. He said an angler who refuses a spot test will not receive his or her check but added the tournament has never had to withhold payment. As always, the Saltwater Classic bene ted the Organization for Arti cial Reefs (OAR). Founded in 1985, OAR serves the recreational saltwater shing industry of Florida’s Big Bend Gulf Coast by promoting the professional development of public arti cial reefs. Since 1987, OAR has created or enhanced more than 30 named reefs in the Big Bend Gulf. OAR collaborates with cities and counties as well as state and federal governments to create and maintain arti cial reefs. OAR also collaborates with marine research agencies, other arti cial reef groups and the academic community. "$ # # COME JOIN US FOR THE . 4 TH OF JUL Y SIDEW ALK SALE!

Repairs resulting from water intrusion and eventual rotting of the coring materials sandwiched between berglass. The damaged area should be opened up, damaged coring removed, new coring material, cut to t and ready to install. Remove the new piece of coring, grind bottom layer of original berglass, clean thoroughly with vacuum cleaner or blow out with compressed air. Wipe down area with acetone, apply un-thickened coat of epoxy or polyester resin to bottom surface and bottom surface of coring. Allow ve to 10 minutes to be absorbed. Apply second coat of thickened epoxy or resin, thicken with micrabaloons, collidal silica or West Systems adhesive ller (my preference) and reinstall coring piece. Pour thickened mixture around perimeter of coring to ll void. Next, wet out top of coring with un-thickened epoxy or resin, allow to be absorbed, apply three to four layers of woven roven berglass mat allowing to overlap beveled edges of original panel, three to ve inches. Apply mat, pour epoxy or resin and spread or brush until berglass mat is saturated and carefully push out any air bubbles/voids. Apply second and third layers of mat as we did with the rst. Allow several minutes for last layer to become slightly tacky. Make up a nal thickened mixture of epoxy or resin, pour onto top and brush or spread to conceal pattern of berglass mat. Allow 12-24 hours for materials to harden, wipe off top nish with soap and water and allow to dry. Now begin sanding with 60-80 grit paper, sand off high spots and any/all the gloss that has formed on top coat. Next week we will cover lling and sanding to conceal repair.

Big snapper are holding on near shore and offshore wrecks from 60-150 feet of water. Live bait will prove to be the best for bigger fish, however, snapper will eat cut bait as well. Try fishing 20 feet off the bottom with a live grunt or pinfish for a trophy red snapper. As the summertime weather patterns start to set in, bay fishing will be a game of early and late. Early morning top water action will produce nice trout and redfish catches. Late afternoon fishing will be mainly live bait and grubs and jigs, and as the water cools down, try switching back to a top water hard bait for a trophy redfish or trout. Flounder are showing up in the normal places this week from Mexico Beach to Indian Pass. SPONSORED BY

By WES LOCHER 229-7843 |@PSJ_Star wlocher@star .com A 2009 graduate of Port St. Joe High School, Heather Brinkmeier is headed to Sydney, Australia, to compete in the Down Under Cup Challenge as part of the Australia International Softball Challenge in July. “I had to read it twice,” said Brinkmeier of the invitation she received in September of last year. Brinkmeier will y to Los Angeles on July 20 and take a connecting ight to Sydney the following day. She’ll have two days in Australia to sight-see before jumping into a daily practice regimen with a team made up of complete strangers. “It’s exciting and nerve-wracking,” she said of playing such a high-pro le tournament alongside girls she’s never met. “I’m going to work my butt off.” She’ll have plenty of time to amp herself to meet her new teammates on the 15-hour ight. USA Athletes International works to bring the world’s athletes together though sports and education and chose 14 females from across the United States to gather as a team halfway across the globe to compete against players from Australia, Italy and Prague. The daughter of Steve and Christine, Brinkmeier was recommended to the team by her former coaches as well as those from opposing teams. Candidates also had to be in good academic standing. In high school, Brinkmeier was a four-year letter winner for Coach Jim Belin and helped the Lady Tiger Sharks to a runner-up nish in the state Class 2A Tournament her senior year when PSJ nished 27-3. She was third-team All-State as a senior out elder and had a home run and three RBIs in the regional title game; two hits and an RBI in the state semi nals. She hit .284 with ve doubles and two triples as a junior when she helped lead the Lady Tiger Sharks to a regional championship. While in high school she also played volleyball and basketball and was a member of the cheerleading squad. Further, Brinkmeier played travel ball for Team North Florida with Coach Coy Adkins, an assistant coach at University of Florida and now a coach at the University of Arkansas from 2006-08. The team placed 30th out of 165 teams at the 2006 nationals in Seattle. In 2007 the team placed third in the World Series and second in 2008. She was a member of the Panama City Lady Lightning with Coach Bubba Hill from 2006-10. The team won a USFA World Series in 2006. In junior college Brinkmeier played two seasons for head Coach Tommy McDaniel at Lurleen B. Wallace Community College in Andalusia, Ala., where she hit over .300 both years with a combined 14 home runs and 55 RBIs. She transferred to Florida Southern College in Lakeland but had a medical redshirt for the 2011-12 softball seasons because of a labrum tear in her right shoulder. She said she feels back to 100 percent. In her junior year she played all 49 games at rst base and had a elding percentage of .978 while rehabilitating. Though Brinkmeier is “beyond excited” for the Australian experience, she’s unsure what competition she may face down under. “When softball was an Olympic sport, Australia had one of the top teams,” added Brinkmeier. Brinkmeier hopes that the experience will lead to additional travel opportunities or as a springboard into the coaching world. “It’s enough for me just to go there and compete,” Brinkmeier said. “Even if we lose, it’s about the experience … but I’m going to win.” In addition to representing the United States and Port St. Joe at the tournament, she’s also excited to get some relaxation in during the international trip. “According to the itinerary, they’ll teach us how to surf during the day, and we’ll get to tour the zoo,” Brinkmeier said. On June 22, a fundraiser will be held for Brinkmeier at the Rustic Sands campground from 4-10 p.m. CT featuring food, drinks, raf es and live music. Funds raised will go toward her ight to Los Angeles. PORT ST. JOE WEWAHITCHKA PORT ST.

What would that photographer see if he was transported to the present? By WES LOCHER 229-7843 |@PSJ_Star wlocher@starfl.com For those keeping track of the upcoming Centennial Celebration activities, a kite flying contest had been added to the expansive list of events happening to celebrate the upcoming 100th birthday of Port St. Joe. The kite event will take place on Sunday, June 30 at George Core Park. The Centennial Celebration Committee, appointed by Mayor Mel Magidson in October, wanted to ensure that the events were full of family fun. Food plates with hamburgers or hotdogs will be served for $5 and trophies will be awarded for age categories eight and under, nine to 14 and 15-and-up. Prizes will be given away for highest flying kite, best homemade kite, best store bought kite and overall champion kite flyer. Also on hand will be carnival games including a football toss, basketball booth, corn hole, a hula hoop area and a water misting station to stay cool. The event is a joint fundraiser between the Gulf County Soccer Boosters, Port St. Joe Youth Soccer and Port St. Joe Elementary School Parent Teacher Organization (PTO). “We wanted to do something affordable and fun,” said Mike Lacour, Financial Analyst at City Hall and coordinator of the event. As president of the Gulf County Soccer Boosters, Lacour and his wife, Becky have supported the youth athletic community for years and saw the kite flying event as a great way to raise funds for a local soccer coach, a position not budgeted by Gulf County Schools. The Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf Guild will also run a preliminary Duck Derby prior to a larger-scale event planned for the Scallop Festival in August. Kids will be able to “adopt” a rubber duck and the first one across the park’s lagoon will win prizes. Food will be provided Centennial events encourage kids to go y a kite See KITE B5 By WES LOCHER 229-7843 |@PSJ_Star wlocher@star .com The annual 4-H Horse Camp with the Big River Riders took place last week at T.L. James Park in Wewahitchka. The program is part of the University of Florida’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences extension program that brings farming, horticulture and environmental science skills to kids ages 8-18 in Gulf County. “This program allows kids to manage their horses better and perform at events a whole lot better,” said Gulf County Extension director Roy Lee Carter. The four-day camp focused on horsemanship, speed classes, showmanship, pleasure and trail riding and the care of the horse and riding tack. In addition to spending their mornings on horseback, afternoon classes on nutrition for their horses and their riders allowed the 14-person class to escape the summer heat. Jean McMillian is in her 41st year as a leader with 4H and her fourth overseeing the horse program. “I do it for the children,” said McMillian. “We have a very good group of parents and a congenial group of young men and women.” She praised 4-H and its various programs for its role in developing good citizens while encouraging members to “make the best better.” McMillian’s goal is to teach responsibility and shed light on the important role it plays in creating good attitudes and good sportsmanship. Even though the club members compete against one another at horse shows, they encourage and root for their fellow riders. McMillian is thankful for the extension programs and the good qualities they develop in children. “Roy is the backbone of the program,” said McMillian. “He works hard for the children in the county.” In April, nine of the class members placed in the Area A District competition held Marianna.

Although we haven’t had a hurricane this season. it doesn’t hurt to be prepared. The arrival of hurricane season signals the need to develop a contingency plan to guard our lives and property from powerful winds and ooding rains. Ornamental plants and other landscape objects are especially vulnerable. One of the most important protective measures is to stake down any new trees and shrubs on your home grounds. By “new” we mean any small trees or large shrubs you’ve planted within the past year. The stakes should be two or three feet long. You’ll need three or four per tree. Drive them into the soil to a depth of 18 to 24 inches, slanting them away from the tree at a 45-degree angle. This will make them more secure and less likely to be pulled out. How far you place the stake from a tree will depend on its size. A general rule is to locate the stakes the same distance from the base of the tree as the height above the ground at which you plan to attach the guide wires. To secure the wire and keep them from slipping off, make notches in the stakes a few inches from the top of each. Then attach wires in these notches and run them to a point about two-thirds up the trunk. Before attaching the wires to the tree, run them through lengths of garden hose to protect the bark. Now, tighten the wires enough to prevent excessive tree movement, but not so high that they might break — or, worse yet, cause the tree to break in high winds. In addition to staking and guiding small trees and shrubs, you should inspect larger trees for broken, dead or damaged limbs and remove these as soon as possible. Hurricane winds can tear such limbs from a tree, and turn them into dangerous projectiles. However, remember that it is not a good idea to prune healthy branches before a hurricane, because this encourages new growth, which is very vulnerable to wind damage. During the storm season, it is especially important to keep gutters clear of leaves, twigs and other debris. Drainage should be at its best to cope with heavy hurricane rains. If you have hanging baskets, tub plants, or large potted plants on exposed porches or patios, they should be moved indoors ahead of the storm. Hurricane winds can damage or completely destroy both exposed plants and containers. Other loose items, which can be hurled about, such as lawn furniture, garden tools, toys, and garbage cans, also should be brought inside before strong winds strike. In addition to being severely damaged or destroyed, such objects can become lethal ying objects during a hurricane.

Kids looking to get in volved in 4-H can contact the Gulf County Extension Ofce at 639-3200. HORSIN’ from page B1 Special to The Star Women seeking timely, convenient and compas sionate health care have more options this year, thanks to the expansion of gynecologic services to Sa cred Heart Hospital on the Gulf’s Women’s Center. Certied Nurse Prac titioner Nancy Anderson began seeing patients at Women’s Health Center in the hospital’s Medical Of ce Building on May 15. Her services allow women to receive a full comple ment of screenings, includ ing PAP smears, at their annual mammograms. Previously, the women’s center provided mammog raphy, ultrasound and bone density testing. “This ad ditional service will allow women in our community to meet all of their preven tive, reproductive health screenings at one loca tion, close to home,” said Anderson. Current guidelines from the American Cancer Soci ety recommend that wom en between the ages of 21 and 29 have a pelvic exam and Pap smear every three years. Women between the ages of 30 and 65 should have a pelvic exam, a Pap smear and an HPV test ev ery ve years. However Anderson, who received her training at the Northwestern State University in Shreveport, LA and a subsequent doc torate of nursing practice from UAB explains, “It is vital that we do not confuse the recommendation of less frequent Pap tests with the unchanged recommenda tion of annual pelvic health exams.” To schedule an appoint ment with Anderson or the Sacred Heart Hospital on the Gulf Women’s Center call 229-5680.

His latest book, “Bul lets and Bread, Feeding the Great to the Grunts in World War II,” is a culi nary history of the best and worst that WWII had to of fer as told through the sol diers who had to eat it. “Bullets and Bread” collects memories and an ecdotes about the best and worst chow served up from basic training to Europe, Africa and the Pacic, dis cusses Allied ration devel opment and the modern ization of America’s food production and the quality of chow on ships, subs, the trenches, PT Boats and bombers. Nashville-native Whita ker is the author of a dozen food-related books including, “Smoke in the Mountains: The Art of Ap palachian Barbecue” and “Checkered Flag Cook ing: Tailgating Stock Car Racing.” For the past 25 years, he’s lived in Chattanooga, Tennessee with his wife Ally, son Macee and three dogs. By day, Whitaker works in graphics and advertis ing, but he has a separate life dedicated to the love of writing, cooking, and writ ing about cooking, a love that netted him an appear ance on the Food Network television channel where he won the Emeril Live Barbecue Contest. In Whitaker’s separate life, there’s a place that he desires to retire to and write for the remainder of his days: a little place known as Gulf County. It was 20 years ago that the Whitakers went search ing for a southern vacation spot that would have crys tal waters, beautiful beach es and, most importantly, be dog-friendly. After some searching, the Whitakers landed in Gulf County and now re turn several times a year. “It’s full of friendly peo ple,” said Whitaker. “Even as a visitor, you feel like you live there.” The husband and wife enjoyed the community surrounding area so much that they got a condo on Cape San Blas and became involved with local events and charities. It was while visiting his son at North Georgia Col lege and State University that the idea for “Bullets and Bread” came together. While browsing a lo cal gift shop at the base, Whitaker spied a copy of one of his other cookbooks and offered to sign the copy for the clerk. Another store patron approached Whita ker and asked to purchase the inscribed book. This started up some friendly conversation be tween the men and soon the veteran shared an an ecdote about the challeng es of barbecuing in Kuwait during the Gulf War. Another veteran in the shop, having heard the con versation, stepped in and talked about the large cel ebrations of food his naval unit would have each time they crossed the equator. Whitaker, entranced by the stories, immediately knew what his next book would be about. Having already written numerous cookbooks, the author wanted to take a different approach with his exciting new idea. As a contributor to the Chattanooga Free Press, Chattanooga Business Journal and Racing Mile stones Magazine, he sought a way to combine his jour nalism background with the food-centric stories. “I didn’t want it to sim ply be a list of recipes,” said Whitaker. “I wanted it to be about the stories and the people.” When he pitched the idea to his publisher, His tory Publishing Company, Whitaker’s plan was to share the stories of veter ans from all of the wars. The publisher saw poten tial in the idea, but recom mended that Whitaker fo cus on WWII veterans, not ing that they were disap pearing at a much quicker rate and there was history to be preserved. From concept to n ished product, “Bullets and Bread” took four years to reach completion. Whita ker spent countless hours locating veterans with tting stories, traveling, meeting and running them through his extensive in terview process. Going in, he doubted that he’d nd enough con tributors, but to his sur prise, each conversation led to additional recom mendations of veterans to speak with. Museum historians, Memorial Day events and Fourth of July celebrations also provided valuable connections. For those veterans that the author couldn’t meet with face-to-face, addition al time was spent on cor respondence via the tele phone, email and old fash ioned, handwritten letters. Understanding that war time is never a popular conversation topic, Whita ker was happy that “bad food” often brought a smile to the faces of the 50 plus veterans he spoke with bringing up stories that contained more laughter than heartbreak. “They didn’t get too emotional telling their sto ries, but I sure got tore up listening to them!” said Whitaker. Topics ranged from soldiers who were fed up of eating mutton stew and searched out alternatives, to tales of shing with dy namite, to stories of hun gry soldiers who would try almost anything to avoid eating spam one more time. Organization was the key to creating the content for the book and very little technology was used when it came to the interview process. “I did everything the good old fashioned way,” said Whitaker, “I listened and took notes.” In addition to the book, Whitaker has plans for a TV show called “Chow Line” (the book’s original title) that he envisions as a combination of the Food Network program ming and military history. His ultimate goal for the show would be to feature a cook-off between the Coast Guard and the Navy, two military branches known for the quality of their chow. Whitaker’s bibliography also includes two children’s books and an ongoing proj ect to produce a book of “hometown recipes” for each of the 50 states. He’s also a member of the United States Coast Guard Auxiliary and serves on the National Staff as an AUXCHEF and National Branch Chief. He current ly serves the USCG 8th Eastern. “The book makes a per fect gift for a foodie or a his tory buff,” said the author. “It’s World War II history in a completely different light--History that should not get lost.” For more information on “Bullets and Bread” or to purchase the book on line, visit Whitaker’s web site at www.thedeckchef. com. New book explores life on the WWII chow line SPECIAL TO TT HE STAR Author Kent Whitaker found the perfect way to combine his love of cooking and writing with his book Bullets and Bread: Feeding the Great to the Grunts in World War II. Trivia A A NSW ERER The photographer would be standing near the drivethru at Hungry Howies and photographing Frank Pate Park. From concept to nished product, “Bullets and Bread” took four years to reach completion. Whitaker spent countless hours locating veterans with tting stories, traveling, meeting and running them through his extensive interview process. Going in, he doubted that he’d nd enough contributors, but to his surprise, each conversation led to additional recommendations of veterans to speak with.
