B7-B8 By TIM CROFT227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@star.com County Commissioner Joanna Bryan last week continued to question the legal ity of a variance recently approved by the Board of County Commissioners. And with county attorney Jeremy No vak present for the meeting the discus sion centered, as Novak noted late in the debate, on differing legal opinions. Novak had not been present during the prior regular meeting when the BOCC, by a 3-1 vote with Bryan dissenting, approved a variance on property owned by Ellis Smith Jr., which is adjacent to Veterans Memorial Park at Beacon Hill. As the variance was being awarded, Bryan came under attack from fellow commissioners for her continued doubts over whether the variance was legal. As part of receiving the variance, Smith, through his father Ellis Smith, pledged to deed to the county just under a quarter acre along the beachfront to provide pub lic beach access.By TIM CROFT227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@star.com New eyes often offer new perspective on old sights. Such was the exercise last week as the Competitive Florida Partnership process began the assessing, or mapping, of the assets that make Port St. Joe well, Port St. Joe. And if beauty is in the eye of the beholder, having roughly a dozen pairs of new eyeballs focused on the local landscape provided testimony of things maybe many residents take for granted. The great parks, the beautiful bay, gor geous beaches and canopies of oaks, pines and palms new eyes provided a new coat of shellac for the postcard that is Port St. Joe.

Specically, the CCA is focusing on a $200,000 state appropriation which is currently in the budget to help the city of Port St. Joe save the lighthouse. This is not just pork, but spoiled pork in our state budget, Pat Hardman, president of the CCA, wrote in an email to asso ciation members and South Gulf County residents. Hardman requested that CCA members and other interested parties phone or email the coun tys legislative delegation earlier this week to protest the appropria tion and ask for its exclusion from the budget. The appropriation was among those cited in a recent Associated Press story outlining some of the local projects lawmakers have ear marked funding for given a budget surplus that has been estimated at more than $1 billion. If passed by the full Legislature, this years appropriation would be in addition to a $325,000 appropria tion secured for the lighthouse re location last year by State Sen. Bill Montford (D-Tallahassee). This years appropriation, which was placed in the budget by Rep. Jimmy Patronis (R-Panama City Beach) who no longer rep resents Gulf County, appears tar geted to defray the costs for down ing Duke Energy power lines to accommodate the relocation of the lighthouse and ancillary build ings two keepers quarters and an oil house from the cape to a Port St. Joe park. The cost of that power line work is estimated at $170,000. Two weeks ago city commis sioners formally awarded the contract for relocation to GAC Contractors. GAC has bid to move the lighthouse and buildings for a combined $560,000, more or less. Of course, this is contingent upon having every dollar that we need, said Mayor Mel Magidson as the bid was being awarded. A detailed outline of current nancial commitments for the project shows the city has approxi mately $531,500 for the relocation, the money coming from a variety of sources.

The U.S. Marine Staff Sgt. has traveled the world, as a soldier and a wounded warrior. He has attended events in honor of veterans, hon oring warriors, from sea to sea. And he will contend that the foot the community of Port St. Joe puts forward to honor wounded warriors is unique, something Silva said he has rarely, if ever, experienced. The good thing and unique thing about Port St. Joe is that it is sincere, Silva said by phone from Maryland where he remains a Marine instructor. He will join the Forgot ten Coast Wounded War rior Weekend, which begins May 14, as a mentor to those warriors and caregivers who have not experienced such an event. People can tell (a color ful adjective for insincerity), that you are only doing this for the community, Silva continued. They can tell. But in Port St. Joe you can feel it is out of pure thankfulness, nothing more. Sometimes that can get lost in translation, but it is good the warriors are there for as long as they are because they can see it is sincere. The Forgotten Coast Wounded Warrior Week end includes two signature events, an honor parade and banquet which will take place May 15 to honor 20 warriors and their caregivers.

By TIM CROFT 227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@starfl.com Melissa Ramsey didnt need a memo from the Florida Depart ment of Education last Tuesday to know something was wrong. On a day of Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test online testing, students and teachers were left without a connection. The districts IT folks dove in and performed troubleshooting, but before 8 a.m. ET it was clear that testing was not going to go off as planned. Ramsey, the districts supervisor for testing, called it a day and instructed teachers to send their students back to class. Before students even ar rived for school in Wewahitchka, Ramsey had notied the schools on the north end that testing would take place that day. We called and told them not to even try, Ramsey said. By 10 a.m. ET the FDOE sent an email blast alerting districts to a problem and suggesting a delay in testing. Scheduled for Tuesday was testing for Grade 5 math and reading in Grades 8 and 10. The Grade 10 reading is par ticularly important as students must pass that test to graduate high school. But a problem at Pearson, the company contracted to pro vide testing services to Florida, caused some districts to be un able to log into the companys system. This is the second school year in which online testing has been performed to signicant sections of the FCAT. The problem was not statewide Franklin County schools proceeded with testing without incident but did not sit well with Florida Education Commissioner Pam Stewart who called the prob lem unacceptable. For Gulf District Schools the snafu meant taking full advantage of the exible schedule put in place for FCAT testing, par ticularly since portions of the test have moved online. We have to be so exible, Ramsey said, noting that with computer testing the testing must be performed within a win dow of time, not a specic day. We were able to shift everything one day. Students who were to take Session 1 of the reading FCAT on Tuesday and the second ses sion the following day instead took Session 1 on Wednesday and completed the second session on Thursday. Friday is reserved each week for makeups, providing a built-in day for exibility of scheduling in the event of problems. You just have to shift, Ramsey said. The state is more exible and we were exible. And while some students were ustered by preparing for testing and then having to take pause, Ramsey said the stress was likely higher for those not actually tak ing any tests. I would say it was probably a more stressful day for the adults than it was for the students, Ramsey said. Testing was back on schedule by the end of the week.Computer glitch delays district FCAT testing In the battle against whooping cough, she needs more than cute.

LocalThe Star| A3Thursday, May 1, 2014Help Floridas coastal wildlife Bird stewards neededSpecial to The StarDo you like the beach? Do you want to help our coastal wildlife survive? Become a part of the statewide efforts to help protect Floridas beachnesting shorebirds. Its that time of year again when Floridas rare shorebirds are nesting on our beaches and bird stewards are needed. Did you know beach-nesting birds like Snowy Plovers, Black Skimmers, American Oystercatchers and Least Terns lay their eggs on top of the sand and raise their young on our local beaches? Chicks less than 6 inches tall can be seen feeding along dunes, coastal lakes and the tidal zone. While they are adapted to survive this harsh environment of sun, sand, and salt with protection from their parents, chicks and eggs str uggle to survive  when beach-goers inadvertently ush parents from their nests. Left exposed to the harsh sun and predators, one disturbance can spell disaster for these vulnerable chicks. Florida Park Service, Audubon Florida, FWC, DOD, USFWS, Volunteers other partners all work together with communities to help these species survive. Across the Panhandle, Audubon staff, partners and volunteers will be leading beach walks for the public to learn more about these signature Florida birds and/or participate in volunteer training. Locations vary and dates may include May 3, 4, 10, 11, 17 and 18. Space is limited, so contact Bonnie Samuelsen to learn more about an opportunity near you: bsamuelsen@ audubon.org (850-866-7152).

By WES LOCHER229-7843 |@PSJ_Star wlocher@starfl.com The writers have arrived. Invited by Tourist Development Council executive director Jennifer Jenkins, 12 writers from various U.S. publications are spending the week in Gulf County to experience the outdoor playground rsthand. The guided vacation comes as stage three for Jenkins marketing plans. Previously, the TDC had set its sights on paid and shared media with a heavy focus on spreading the word of Gulf County through social media. With a goal to reach 10,000 Facebook fans for Gulf County in 2014, the number has surpassed 11,000 just four months into the year. In preparation for the earned media push, Jenkins embarked on several missions throughout December and January to network with representatives from magazines and television stations. While attending meet-andgreets in Birmingham, A.L. and New York City, Jenkins championed Gulf County invited interested parties to experience the area. From Wednesday through Sunday, 12 journalists, bloggers, producers and editors from as far away as Phoenix, A.Z. and New York City will enjoy a ve-day stay to feature excursions plucked directly from the pages of the Gulf County Visitors Guide. Our goal is to have them experience Gulf County in a way thats authentic and true, said Jenkins. We want them to fall in love with it the way we know they will. The packed itinerary will begin on Thursday when the journalists head to the north end of the county where theyll travel by boat up the Intracoastal Waterway to Lake Wimico, dock at White City, and see Wewahitchkas Dead Lakes and apiaries where Tupelo Honey harvesting will be in full swing. Jenkins said she purposely scheduled the visit to coincide with the Tupelo harvest. These are things that you dont see anywhere else, said Jenkins. The following day will be spent touring Cape San Blas as the guests spend time exploring the St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, before an afternoon of paddle boarding, horseback riding and kayaking. On Saturday, the writers will go on a shing tour and experience a cook your own catch dinner, a popular way to get fresh, local seafood in area restaurants. Depending on the target interests of their respective publications, some writers will go on to visit Rafeld Fisheries in Port St. Joe while others will enjoy local shopping on Reid Avenue. Jenkins said that the rise of blogging has created many online columnists with a large circle of inuence. Her goal is to welcome those writers to the area twice a year for the next few years in hopes that with each visit, those helping to spread the word of Gulf County will extend far beyond locals and TDC efforts. Jenkins said the event wouldnt have been possible without the TDC partners donating their time, venues, boats and expertise to the cause. We want to show these writers what our interests are, said Jenkins. We want them to eat local food and make friends. Before they leave, theyll be Champions of Sunsets, too.TDC puts Gulf County on display for journalists Audubon Beach Nesting Bird Walks for the month of May

Have you heard that old saying, Those who can, do..those who cant, teach? Mr. Ratliffe Pascahall and his wife, Velna Gray, came into my life in 1960. They moved in just a little ways up Stonewall Street from us into a house across from the grammar school. I was going into the seventh grade. And let me tell you, I was so frightened by the unknowns of junior high that I was completely oblivious to the impact that move would have on the rest of my life! They had three sons like stepping stones. Douglas was in the tenth grade. David was a freshman and Martin was one year ahead of me. They were gifted students, terric friends and special mentors, not just to me, but to an entire student body. I didnt, of course, realize then but I have spent a lifetime understanding more each day that children like this dont turn out by accident. They had parents that knew something about life, motivation, communication, expectations, contributions and a healthy respect for people, places and things. Miss Velna Gray taught junior high social studies. She could make studying the building of the Aswan Dam on the Nile River exciting and interesting. You try that sometime! And she was the rst person ever not related to me to pull me aside and tell me I had special ability. Kesley, you have a great sense of learning and the intelligence to comprehend it all. Please dont cheat yourself in the high school days and life ahead. Maybe she told lots of students the same thing. But I never forgot it. I majored in history in college in large part because of the interest she raised in me about the world around us. Mrs. Paschall would have been a success in any endeavor she chose. She had the spirit and the will to do about anything. The fact that she could handle Mr. Paschall AND David and Martin (Doug didnt need as much attention) was testimony to that! Her choosing to teach was an everlasting credit to our school, our community and countless lives just like mine. Mr. Paschall taught high school biology, shop and agriculture. He never told me I was anything special. If you gave a wrong answerespecially if it was way south of the mark, hed kinda stare around the room like youd just dropped in from another planet, nally his eyes would narrow in on the culprit, Did you come to learn today, or did you just come to be entertained! The maddest I ever saw him, besides the time he whipped David and Martin for being late to school, was over a blooming frog. He had me and Bobby Jackson carefully tie this live frog he picked up somewhere to a board. We were supposed to take a scalpel and lightly scrape the skin off one hind leg so the class could better study the blood circulation. We had the frogs leg stretched too tight or we dug a little too deepthe leg popped off! We had cut the thing in two! Mr. Paschall shook for a while and then turned red, I selected, his words were a cross between torrid anger and abject disbelief as he repeated them over and over, the two best men I had for the job. If a class or a group was really not acting to suit him hed shake his head and admonish us, Dont act like them Atwood boys. I dont actually think he knew any boys from Atwood and I can assure you, he meant them no harm. It was just a reference with him to get us to mind our ps and qs. He never missed a ball game of any kind. Usually, he sat up close and cheered for us and reminded our opponents that we were gooder than they were! When the football eld needed the hash lines mowed, he invented a six inch blade that worked perfectly. If you hadnt heard a good fox hunting story in a while, all you had to do was stroll over to the house across from the grammar school. He could talk eloquently or down home Puryear, Tennessee slang in the most entertaining way on any subject you could bring up. He taught, treated and was concerned for the student that was struggling to graduate just the same as the ones he knew were college bound. That was a life lesson that I have never forgotten. He made learning a laughing ride and eld trips into lasting memories. I loved the whole family. And I will carry in my heart to the day I die the love, knowledge and guidance the whole family so unselshly poured into me. I went to visit Mr. Paschall several years ago. He was probably in his early seventies. While he was chastising me about crippling his favorite frog I remembered one of his many abilities, Mr. Paschall, can you still walk on your hands? He said, I dont know, lets see. He proceeded to swing up on his hands and walk half way across the front yard. If you put one ounce of credence into that ignorant and erroneous statement about those who cant, teach..then you just read this story today to be entertained!

TAYLORUF/IFAS Extension Gulf County EExtension AAgent, Family & Consumer Sciences and 4-H YY outh Development As you are clearing out clutter, sprucing up and getting ready for summer, you should also start your nancial spring cleaning by guring out where you stand nancially. Here are a few tips to help you get started: 1. GEtT ORgGANIZED. Build a personal nancial ling system; get out your nancial paperwork and le it in order of importance. Separate bills that way, you can track them as they come in, reducing the chance of missed or late payments. Use a plastic tote for a ling cabinet these keep your les dry and are easy to carry from one room to the next should you need to. 2. CREAt TE A BUDgGEtT How much money do you have? Are you spending more than you earn? If you dont have a spending record, start one. You can still get on with your nancial spring cleaning today. If you havent been keeping a record, just make a deliberate effort to start now. Try to note all your spending for the next month, right down to the soda from the vending machine. Then, in a months time, youll be able to see where your money is going and, hopefully, see some areas where you can cut back. 3. PAY OFF DEBtT Now, lets discuss what most people agonize over, but is a very important subject: Debt. If you have any debt beyond a mortgage, you should try to focus on paying off this debt as quickly as possible. It is also important to try to negotiate your interest rates down with your credit card company if you can. Although this option may not be available to everyone, especially if your credit is not good, its worth trying. If you are not successful in reducing your interest rates, you can use these steps to reduce debt: Stop using credit; charging new items increases the balances on what you already owe on your credit cards. Do not open new lines of credit. Request a free copy of your credit report from www. annualcreditreport.com and honestly assess the problem. Understanding your situation helps when trying to resolve debt issues. Stop denying that you have a debt problem and work on it. You can analyze your debts using Powerpay at powerpay.org. This website gives you a personalized report and plan to reduce your debt based on your input. Break your debt load into manageable chunks; dene your goal and focus on reducing manageable amounts. Special to The StarMaybe we should all be asking for a temporary closure of all federal RED SNAPPER shing. It has been proven in court that they (National Marine Fisheries Service-NMFS and NOAA, do not have a clue what they are doing. This is how our Red Snapper season went from 40 days to 11 days this year (and probably less before it is over). Why dont we just close it for Commercial and recreational sherman for a year giving NOAA and NMFS time to implement a fair system for all. The commercial boys all claim they are accountable for every sh they catch. That is total mullarkey. Most people dont have a clue how commercial shermen get to sh year round for OUR red snapper so let me try and explain. The government gave away 51 percent of our publicly owned Red Snapper to a few commercial shermen to catch and sell rather than letting us all catch our own sh to eat. 2) The government allowed this because supposedly the commercial sector are counting every sh and weighing them. (accountability) A) Many, if not most commercial shermen have become seafood dealers as well as shermen; so now they catch the sh, weigh them themselves, and write their own trip tickets telling the Government how many sh that weighed a certain amount they have caught. Do you think anyone cheats? This is the accountability that Roy Crabtree, Andy Strelcheck and other NMFS and NOAA employees claim to be foolproof. These are the same people that just lost a battle in court and were told that they have failed miserably in their jobs as to providing the accountability for the recreational sector. I would bet, if they let the recreational sector catch their own sh, bring them in and weigh them themselves and then call it inthe recreational sector would be just as accountable as the commercial sector is now and we could be shing year round as well. FYI Most of these commercial shermen dont even sh any more they have been given our sh so they can sit at home and rake in money for letting others catch sh for them yet you and I cannot even catch our own supper. While the NMFS and NOAA let this go on, the Charter for Hire are essentially being put out of business by closing the season to 11 days for Red Snapper, No triggersh, gag grouper for a few months. How can the charter boats make a living? It is hurting all our businesss that rely on tourism to make a living. How can all the rest of us ever get a chance to go catch our own sh when they have given our shing rights away to about 400 commercial shermen to make money off of OUR Fish?. And meanwhile, the commercial boys, sh year round for snapper and can never reach their quota. Does that sound odd?? What real good is an 11 day season? Of course a charter shing business cannot stay in business very long with these shortened seasons that are now on all species. Why would they let commercial shermen catch sh for other people when they wont let charter boats take people shing that want to catch their own Red Snapper to eat, or the general public that just wants to catch their own to eat?? So now, they (NOAA ,NMFS)are arbitrarily putting the CFH sector and many, many people and businesss out of work all for the good of a few commercial shermen. If Red snapper is closed for charter shermen and recreational sherman it should be closed for the Commercial shermen as well. Take Red Snapper off the restaurants menu. If we cannot even go catch some for our own dinner, why should we be able to buy it from someone else?? Fire Roy Crabtree and Andy Strelcheck from the NMFS, NOAA. Get the environmental groups like Oceans Conservancy, EDF, Pew and their puppet groups like Share the Gulf, out of sheries Management. Please call Steve Southerland, Marco Rubio and Bill Nelson. Ask them to help get our sh back! These Fish are Our Fish Capt. Tom AAdams Mexico Beach ChartersNo snapper shing for all Self-EExplanatory Dear Editor, Former Mexico Beach City Council member Gary Woodhams remarks at the Jan. 14, 2014 regular city council meeting, his rst meeting after he was tapped to temporarily ll the seat when council member Lanny Howell abruptly resigned in December: Woodham stated, I hope and pray this council can work together in a positive manner. We have so much to be thankful for. Just three months later, Woodhams comments to the Panama City News Herald on the night of April 22, after he was defeated for the same council seat by Mary Blackburn (281 votes to 250 votes): Woodham attributed the [election] results to a successfully orchestrated campaign to mobilize female voters. They did a great job, but they did the city a great disservice, Woodham said... Woodham said a silent majority that agreed with the citys current direction did not show up to the polls, allowing a disgruntled group to take control of Mexico Beach, he said... The direction they will be moving is backward, not forward, Woodham said, I think it is going to hurt this community... Politics at its nest.

Economic Opportunity pilot project Competitive Florida Partnership. We just dont have what you have here. I am so im pressed with this area. There is a true Florida lifestyle here. Farley was among rough ly a dozen folks who came from out of town to partici pate in a Community Asset Mapping Exercise, which is a signicant part of the Com petitive Florida Partnership process. The Partnership aims to provide a template for local economic development in a community. Along with Farley came staff from state agencies such as the Department of Environmental Protection (an individual involved with considering the ports appli cation for dredging the ship channel), the Florida De partment of Transportation and the Florida Department of State. Enterprise Florida and Floridas Great Northwest, quasi-public economic de velopment agencies, were also represented as was the Florida League of Cities and the Capitol Area Action Agency. The goal is to bring a fresh perspective to the as sets the community has and also provide a resource for ideas from the outside, said Julie Dennis, program coor dinator for the DEO. Included in that group was Farley from another Competitive Florida Part nership community. We try to bring in people from the other communi ties we are working with, Dennis said. They can gain ideas to take back home with them or provide new ideas they have tried at home that worked. The group, which in cluded local representatives from the city, Tourist De velopment Council, Port St. Joe Redevelopment Agency, Gulf County Economic De velopment and Chamber of Commerce, was divided into four teams and sent into the community to assess, pho tograph and verbally record assets, ranging from parks to education to health care to the waterfront. After a morning assess ing, the teams returned to discuss what they had seen, noting community strengths and suggesting ways to build upon those strengths, offer ing everything from brand ing slogans to improvements for the Centennial Building and Constitution Convention Museum. This is meant as a brainstorming exercise for the community, Dennis said. We had some really good conversations. This is a brain-storming exercise to help the city come up with action plans. Some of those action plans are already in blackand-white, as distributed by Marina Pennington, the citys consultant on plan ning and the comprehensive plan. Those projects include restoration of the Centen nial Building, the possible relocation of the Constitu tion Convention Museum to a bay front park; renovation of the museum and existing Constitution City Park; and relocation of the Cape San Blas Lighthouse to George Core Park, among other items. Under the Competitive Florida process the idea is to match action projects and plans with economic development. The groups also came back with a host of observa tions about Port St. Joe and ideas about how to improve what is already here. To hear the opinions of other people of what we see every day was very inter esting, said Paula Pickett, director of the Chamber of Commerce. There were obvious assets Sacred Heart on the Gulf; the Gulf/Franklin Center and access to higher education; the waterfront and the many options it provides; the Port of St. Joe and the deepwater bulkhead on the old mill site; the many city parks; the Port City Trail; downtown historic areas; and the Arizona Chem ical site owned outright by the Port Authority. We thought the down town had a great start and we would want to continue those improvements, said Alissa Slade-Lotane with the Depart ment of State. Reid Avenue is a major asset. The group identied op portunities for improvements better signage; improve ments of the low docks; creat ing after-school programs and opportunities for students; the Washington Recreation area; creating a gateway to the city through highway beautica tion as just a few examples. And the group also identi ed threats that hold the city back a lack of trust across races and economic classes; somewhat segmented de mographics; and the lack of affordable housing among the most pressing. The city needs to own its own destiny, said Tim Cen ter of the Capitol Area Ac tion Agency. It is about the community that is here and how it will sustain itself. And part of that destiny, almost certainly, will be an operational port. Hanging over last weeks exercise was the impact that econom ic development will have on the varied assets that make the city what it is. Weve looked at existing assets, said Mark Yelland of the DEO. How will they be affected by such a big ef fort with the port? A quandary most of the folks in the room, seeking to fuel local economic devel opment, seemed eager and willing to contemplate. 9454HWY98BEACONHILLATTHE MEXICOBEACHCITYLIMITS8506478310 THE T A HILLONC BEA89 HWY4549 0138746 058 S LIMITY CITCH BEAOMEXIC GREATSELECTIONOFALLYOURFAVORITEBEER,WINE&SPIRITS LIVEONTHEPOOPDECKINTHECROWNEST RANDYSTARK THURSDAY7PM FRIDAY9PM SATURDAY9PMBOSPRINGBANDFLABBERGASTEDBAND ALLTIMESEASTERNFUNTIMES 0138746 058 S LIMITY CITCH BEAOMEXIC S SPIRIT& WINE BEERVORITEA FOURY ALL OFTION SELECTGREA LIVE ON THE POOP DECK UPCOMINGEVENTS KAROKE-FRIDAY&SATURDAY-9PMWITHNATALIE RANDYSTARK ONTHEPOOPDECK6PM FIRSTSUNDAYCELEBRATION 2FOR1ALLDAY&NIGHT AutoInsuranceHannonInsurance227-1133ShopatHome! Thursday, May 1, 2014 LocalA5 | The StarThat deed was part of last weeks consent agenda and Bryan re quested it be pulled and urged commissioners to decline the deed. I believe the deed further compounds the problem, Bryan said. A private practicing attorney, Bryan ques tioned whether the origi nal minor replat of the parcel, which led to the variance request into es tablished setbacks in or der to build on the prop erty, which abuts park land, was legal. She said the attor neys written opinion of two weeks prior seemed to indicate the board could approve a replat in violation of the LDR. Novak said it was a proper replat, but also said the replat was not within the purview of the BOCC. The BOCCs lone con sideration in the matter was reviewing and ap proving or denying the variance request. He said the replat was permissible under county land develop ment regulations and within the purview of the county planning office. The planner had the authority to approve the minor replat, Novak said. He contended that Bryans characterization of the replat being illegal was faulty because it was based on just one section of the LDRs, that speak ing to additional replats of a parent parcel. In this case, Ellis Smith purchased the property, subdivided it and sold one parcel to his son who subsequently subdivided that parcel. The variance per tained to the parcel created by the second division. Novak said the sub sequent section of the LDRs, allowing such divisions on land con tiguous to the original replat, prevailed over Bryans argument. Bryan said that was incorrect. This is not contigu ous, Bryan said. This is the parent parcel. The parent parcel is the par ent parcel. Your argu ment does not hold up. But Novak argued that the county planner applied rules and a pro cess that had been fol lowed for decades. The planning office had op erated within its estab lished policies. Until the rules are changed, this is what should be applied, No vak said. He said if commission ers did not like the rules being applied, they were the ones with the power to change the rules. Bryan replied, It is my opinion we did not follow our LDR. The variance request was imbued with con troversy to its location abutting Veterans Me morial Park. Smith is at least the fourth owner of the land in question in the past 15 years and previous own ers have sought to have it removed from the tax rolls due to the lots di mensions and proximity to the park. Smith ran into re sistance from some in the community when he previously sought a vari ance on the property. In part, Novak argued last week, that could be perceived as a hardship. In a debate over the issue falling under a hardship case for the variance, Bryan had ar gued any hardship had been created by Smiths subdividing the property, not any external action, therefore not qualifying for a hardship. But Novak wondered aloud whether the hard ship wasnt created years before, suggesting the adjacent land being created as a park by the U.S. Department of the Interior could be consid ered the cause. The BOCC accepted the deed with Bryan vot ing no, contending that in her legal opinion the BOCCs course of action was wrong.Administrator payWith little discus sion commissioners ap proved a motion from Commissioner Carmen McLemore to increase the annual salary of county administrator Don Butler to equal that of Sheriff Mike Harrison. Harrison, as a consti tutional officer, has his salary, roughly $104,000 per year, set by the Flor ida Legislature. Bryan, while not spe cifically dissenting, said the item was not on the agenda and the BOCC should allow for public input before upping But lers salary by roughly $20,000 a year. Bryan, who also won dered where the ad ditional money would come from, was over ruled and Butlers sala ry was raised to $104,000 effective immediately. VARIANCE from page A1 ASSETS from page A1 LIGHTHOUSE from page A1funds supplementing new state appropriation, if ap proved, dollars for the reloca tion would be in hand. This unnecessary ad ditional taxpayer expendi ture is a waste of taxpayer money and is not necessary to preserve the historic light house, Hardman said. The CCA has been criti cal of characterizations from Magidson that the re location would not cost city taxpayers when the state, if this years appropriation survives the budget process, will have sent more than $500,000 in tax money. I have committed from day one that no money from the (citys) budget would be spent on the project, said Magidson during several commission meetings. In addition, the CCA contended that contrary to language in the state budget, the $200,000 is not to save the lighthouse. The CCA would be able to accomplish saving the lighthouse by moving it to Salinas Park using private donations together with the previous state appropriation of $325,000. The present and pledged donations plus the previous state grant will be sufcient to pay for the relocation to Salinas Park, without fur ther use of public taxpayer dollars, state or local, Hard man said. Hardman and her group also note other needs, partic ularly clean drinking water, pressing on the city. Addi tionally, the history of the 160year-old lighthouse would be lost by a move to the city. Using additional dollars to move the lighthouse is un necessary and a waste of tax dollars, Hardman said. The major hurdle to the CCAs campaign remains what it has been since De cember 2012 the federal government deeded the lighthouse and ancillary buildings to the city of Port St. Joe following an applica tion window. The Board of County Commissioners also applied to receive the lighthouse, but the citys application, based on a proposal for a BayP ark which has since been shelved, was accepted. The parade will meander through town from WindMark to the Centennial Building, traveling Reid and Long Av enues en route while escorted by the Warrior Watch Riders. The banquet will be fol lowed the next day by sh ing with local boat captains, who donate their time, the expense of a day on the wa ter and their vessel to ensure sh end up dangling on the end of lines. Those events, Silva noted, can make a wounded warrior feel like a circus animal and be overwhelming after spending months surrounded only by family and caregivers while convalescing serious, life-altering, wounds. It is a lot, Silva said. You dont expect people to do that. You dont like being told thank you for doing your job. And that is all I was do ing, my job. Silva, as a participant in a Wounded Warrior event and a frequent visitor to the area since, said the community spirit of Port St. Joe slices through that curtain. It is a special essence you nd in Port St. Joe, Silva said. It is such a unique ex perience. A lot of towns dont do this. But people in Port St. Joe put aside all their differ ences to put on something special. It touches you on a per sonal level. That is often not the case in larger towns, at larger events, Silva said. Folks par ticipate in smaller numbers, unwilling or unable to put work, school and kids and the treadmill of life aside. They mean to do well, they want to do well, but sometimes in a bigger town the event is kind of drowned out by so much going on in life, Silva said. In Port St. Joe that is not the case at all. Silva has an unusual per spective on the community in that Port St. Joe has be come a frequent traveling destination. He has been here when the Wounded Warrior Week end, when the Semper Fi Sisters Beach Blast in the fall was not underway, and he has been in the shops, been in the restaurants, walked the streets. The locals remember you and talk to you and you see how much they support you, Silva said. It is wow. That is something you dont see much anymore. I have been all around the world and that is something unique to Port St. Joe. That is evident in the Wounded Warrior events, Sil va said, because the events are not a weeklong or monthlong undertaking. The events do not reect a temporary state of mind. The locals there are al ways talking about how to make the events better, Sil va said. It is not a part-time thing for Port St. Joe. They arent there for themselves. It is not about Port St. Joe. They dont want to do it better for Port St. Joe. They want to do it for the warriors and family and there is a dif ference. A big difference. Send your letters to : LETTERS TO THE EDITOR P.O.

These changes take effect dur ing the 2014-15 hunting season and are part of a larger, statewide proj ect aimed at managing deer on a more local level and providing stake holders with a greater say in deer management. The FWC conducted a public out reach and input process in northwest Florida beginning in early 2013. Since then, the Commission has received substantial input and comments from hunters, farmers and the general public regarding how they would like to see deer managed in the newly proposed DMUs. As a result of this outreach pro cess, the FWC passed rules for both public and private lands in both of the DMUs in Zone D, with Interstate 10 being the dividing line between the two DMUs. South of I-10 will be called DMU-D1, and north of I-10 is DMU-D2. Now bucks harvested south of I-10 in DMU-D1 must have antlers with at least 2 points (each point having to be at least 1 inch long) on one side and at least one antler 5 inches or more in length. North of I-10 in DMU-D2, the minimum antler requirement is now 3 points (each point having to be at least 1 inch long) on one side and have at least one antler 5 inches or more in length, or have an antler with a main beam length of 10 inches or more. The rule includes an exception for youth to the increased antler require ments in both DMUs whereby hunt ers 15 years old and younger may continue to harvest bucks that have at least one antler 5 inches or more in length. The Commissions action also changes the antlerless deer season (doe days) on private lands within Zone D. During antlerless deer sea son, does may be harvested as well as bucks with less than 5-inch antlers. But it is illegal to take spotted fawns. In DMU-D1 (south of I-10), the ant lerless season was reduced to four days consisting of two popular holi day weekends (the weekends after Thanksgiving and Christmas). In DMU-D2 (north of I-10), ant lerless deer season was lengthened to eight days distributed across four weekends (Saturday-Sunday after Thanksgiving, rst weekend of muz zleloading gun season, third weekend of general gun season and the week end after Christmas). The purpose of modifying the ant lerless deer season was to spread out the hunting opportunity, so that more hunters could participate with out reducing deer populations. These changes will be monitored to mea sure any impacts they may have on deer harvest and hunter satisfaction within each DMU. For more information on Hunting Zone Ds newly established DMUs and their respective modications to deer hunting regulations, click My FWC.com/Deer. Special to The StarThe Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) at its April 16 meeting in Tal lahassee moved forward with a proposal to create a Gulf Reef Fish Data Re porting System that would help improve recreational reef sh data collection in Florida Gulf waters. This new system would help de termine how many anglers are targeting reef sh in the Gulf. A sample of these anglers would be surveyed to provide more accurate catch and effort data for reef sh trips. This proposal will be brought back before the Commission at its June meeting in Fort Myers for a nal public hearing. If approved, private rec reational anglers shing from a boat in Gulf state waters (excluding Monroe County), including those 65 and older, would be re quired to take part in the Gulf Reef Fish Data Re porting System to harvest or possess any of the fol lowing reef sh: red and vermilion snapper; gag, black and red grouper; gray triggersh; greater and lesser amberjack; banded ruddersh; and al maco jack. Anglers, captain and crew aboard for-hire ves sels would not be required to partake in the data-col lection system because they already have their own survey. Anglers under 16 years of age and those shing from a vessel with a vessel recreational sh ing license would also be exempt. This would be a no-cost program, due to a ve-year National Fish and Wildlife Foundation Gulf restora tion grant. The Commission directed staff to include language for a ve-year sunset clause so that when the grant funding ends, the program would be evalu ated and reconsidered. If the Gulf Reef Fish Data Reporting System is approved at the June meet ing, data reporting would be required by April 1, 2015. Anglers are encouraged to sign up when they renew their shing license.Special to The StarThe lionsh is an invasive species that threatens Flori das native wildlife and habi tat. With that in mind, FWC on April 16 moved forward with steps to combat the spread of invasive lionsh. Changes proposed by FWC staff at todays meet ing near Tallahassee will be brought back before the Commission at its June meeting in Fort Myers for nal approval. Changes include: Prohibiting the impor tation of live lionsh; Prohibiting the devel opment of aquaculture of lionsh; Allowing the harvest of lionsh when diving with a rebreather, a device that re cycles air and allows divers to remain in the water for longer periods of time; and Increasing opportuni ties that will allow partici pants in approved tourna ments and other organized events to spear lionsh or other invasive species in areas where spearshing is not allowed. This will be done through a permitting system. Staff has been working with the Florida Legislature on a bill in support of the initiatives to prohibit the im portation of live lionsh and the aquaculture of lionsh. By targeting the im portation of lionsh to our state, we can limit the number of new lionsh that nd their way into Florida waters and, at the same time, encourage further harvest to reduce the exist ing invasive population, said State Rep. Holly Ras chein, sponsor of the House bill. These sh pose a signicant threat to Floridas ecosystem, and I am proud to stand in support of the proposed ban. Anything we can do to limit new lionsh introductions and further fa cilitate the development of a commercial market for this invasive species is a step in the right direction. Changes like these will make it easier for divers to remove lionsh from Florida waters and will help prevent additional introduc tions of lionsh into marine habitats. Lionsh control efforts, from outreach and educa tion to regulatory changes, have been a priority for FWC staff. In 2013, they hosted the rst ever Lionsh Sum mit, which brought together various stakeholders from the public as well as man agement and research elds to discuss the issues and brainstorm solutions. The changes proposed at todays meeting came from ideas that were discussed at the Lionsh Summit. To learn more about these changes, visit My FWC.com/Commission and Commission Meetings. To learn more about lionsh, visit MyFWC.com/Fishing and click on Saltwater, Recreational Regulations and Lionsh. FWC moves ahead with Fulf Reef Fish Data Reporting System SPONsSORED BY Inshore/BayLocal area waters are exploding with good fish catches this week. St. Joe Bay is filled with good slot sized trout around the Blacks Island channel and holding on the flats surrounding the island as well. Drifting live shrimp under a popping cork will prove to be deadly for the trout. Some flounder have been caught in these spots also, but more fish and bigger flounder are coming from deeper water in the canal and around the old shipping towers right now. Cobia have finally showed up in our area in good numbers this week. Several 60-pounders have been landed out of Mexico Beach and a 82 pounder is the biggest that we have heard about so far.FWC makes changes for deer-hunting in northwest Florida SPECi I AL TO TT HE STAR CCOURTEs S Y OF DOLOREs S QUi I RK | Special to The StarThis lionsh was caught off a reef out of Apalachicola.

Well, elders from ve Florida Hometown Region 3 homes spent two days on the beautiful beaches of Cape San Blas and they burst that environment of relaxation and peace wide open with the rst Amazing Race Retreat. Elders from The Bridge at Bay St Joe, Signature HealthCARE of North Florida, Signature HealthCARE of Courtyard, Chautauqua Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, and Washington Rehabilitation and Nursing Center came together at William Rish Park on Cape San Blas and played a two-day game of Amazing Race.

During the two-day event each team had their created ag and a mascot to protect. If either the ag or their mascot were left unattended another team could kidnap them for ransom points.

There is a strong emphasis on pottery in the studio, because Wentzell is a clay artist, but she also brings in other artists to teach a variety of classes, including painting, mosaics, creative writing and more. Just as important as the art experiences here at The Artery, is the sense of community and fellowship, Wentzell said.

Growing up in a family full of artists, Sophia cant remember a time when they werent doing something art-related. Whether it was building clay pieces with her grandmother, or learning new painting techniques with her Poppy, she was always surrounded by art fanatics who were constantly encouraging her to use my creativity. One of her favorite childhood memories was when her Poppy sat for at least an hour, letting her paint a portrait of him. He made her feel like a professional artist even let her use his good canvas and acrylic paints. Although her painting was way out of proportion, and only slightly looked like him, Poppy made Sophia feel so proud of her painting and art skills. This moment made her want to continue to paint and draw, and has inuenced her to complete many of my favorite art pieces. Sophia loves every type of art whether its pottery, watercolor, acrylics, charcoal or printmaking. She plans on becoming an occupational therapist, but still plans on continuing art as a hobby. Art is a big part of her life, and will continue to be moving forward. LaAINE, GGOdwDWIN PROM QUEEN, KING DaAZZlLING dDOlphLPHINS HaA T dayDAY aA T PSSJESES!

Humane Society base on 10th Street in Port St. Joe and how quickly the ranks of candidates for the DAWGS in Prison program are lled with shelter dogs, the volunteers and staff at the SJBHS is nding reasons that grant dollars remain unspent elusive. There is a real need, said Lynda Gangeme, a volunteer for the SJBHS who with her husband, John, also a grant writer, secured the Pet Smart grant. And they are pretty proud of that work. The grant is the largest the foundation has given out to such a small area and after requesting $15,000 the couple was quite pleased with the higher award. This (SJBHS) shelter is full of dogs and cats. They dont have homes and they are difcult to adopt. What is the shelter going to do with all the puppies? Unfortunately, too often unwanted dogs end up being euthanized, Lynda Gangeme said The size of the grant and the size and demographics of the area it is meant to serve, Gangeme said, is intentional. They wanted to make a big impact in a small area, said John Gangeme. They dont normally provide a large grant for such a small area. Lynda added that the Gangemes hope to have the spay and neuter of cats included in subsequent grants sought from Pet Smart. Melody Townsend, SJBHS shelter director, said the grant was important because rural communities generally lack the resources for a broad spay/ neuter outreach program. Large grants are typically targeted to urban and heavily populated areas. But Townsend noted, Pet Smart was, impressed with the application submitted by the Gangemes. The SJBHS had a year to spend the grant funds and concentrated particularly on areas such as Oak Grove, Highland View and North Port St. Joe. But with funds remaining the push is on to continue the work and exhaust the grant dollars. The service is entirely free there is no hidden charge or ne print. Simply contact the St. Joseph Bay Humane Society at 227-1103 or www. sjbhumanesociety.org to secure the application form and ll out the form. In return, you will be given a voucher which can be taken to participating veterinarians Dr. Hobson Fulmer in Apalachicola included as well as vets in Panama City and the vet will send the bill to the SJBHS for payment. No other expense is incurred by the dog owners. Giving an unwanted or surprise litter away, Townsend said, does not address the problem as there is no telling where those dogs will end up and whether those offspring will be spayed or neutered. Passing on the problem, Townsend noted, does not address the problem. What happens to their offspring? she said. CANINES from page B1keeping an eye out for an unattended ag or mascot.  Mr. Willie from Washington Rehabilitation and Nursing Center and Mr. John from Chautauqua Rehabilitation and Nursing Center took this job seriously and scouted the lodge on a regular basis to snatch the rst ag or mascot they could. They said they wanted the most ransom points for their team and everyone was on their toes with these eagle eyed guys around. To make the event even more wonderful, some amazing volunteers came and provided meals for ever yone.  Lunch the rst day was a tasty cookout hosted by Gentiva Home Care and Emerald Coast Hospice. Tommy Portas grilled some great burgers and hot dogs while battling some heavy winds. However, the winds didnt stop him from grilling and they didnt stop everyone from eating the meal.  Marsha Dickey RN, SDC from The Bridge at Bay St Joe made homemade cathead biscuits and grilled some delicious pancakes for everyone for breakfast.  Then for their lunch on the second day Gina Ferland RN, the Administrator of NHC HomeCare, brought ham and turkey sub sandwiches with homemade cheesy, broccoli soup. Gina also created some wonderful snack bags for everyone to take with them on their trip home. The thoughtfulness and friendliness of these kind individuals made this event even more enjoyable. The award ceremony took place the second day just before lunch. The winning team was from Washington Rehabilitation and Nursing Center. They amassed a total of 32 points that included a 5 point ransom penalty Mr. Willie was able to extract from the team from Chautauqua Rehabilitation and Nursing Center. The other awards that were presented that day were Most Spirited to the team from Chautauqua Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, Most Competitive went to Signature HealthCARE of Courtyard, Most Resourceful went to The Bridge at Bay St Joe and Best Teamwork was awarded to Signature HealthCARE of North Florida. As the last day drew to a close and the buses were being loaded, elders from different homes were shaking hands, hugging necks and asking when they could come back. For Mr. John from Chautauqua Rehabilitation and Nursing Center it was the rst time he had ever been to the beach and he said he loved it! Their smiles were big and their faces were aglow with excitement from all of the fun they had. Everyone waved goodbye as they pulled out of the parking lot, but I know many of them were thinking of different strategies for the next Amazing Race.

LocalB6 | The Star Thursday, May 1, 2014From gardening to barbecuing, marauding mosquitoes are common spoilers of outdoor activities in our sunshine state. They can be more than a nuisance. Some mosquitoes transmit diseases to both humans and animals. Most notably encephalitis to man and horses, and heartworm to dogs. Regardless of species, water is essential for mosquito breeding. Since nearly half of our states land area is subject to ooding, its no wonder that we have so many of these persistent pests. Mosquito eggs are laid in water, on the sides of containers where they soon will be covered by water, or on damp soil where they can hatch when covered by rainwater or high tides. A single female may lay several batches of 50 to 200 eggs. The eggs of some oodwater mosquitoes may dry out for more than a year and still hatch in two or three days, change to pupae in about a week, and emerge as adults two days later. It may seem hard to believe, but not all mosquitoes bite. Only the females have biting mouth parts. Male mosquitoes feed on the nectar of owers. Female mosquitoes also feed on the nectar. But, a blood meal usually is necessary to mature the eggs. Lady mosquitoes might be classed as gourmets. Theyre rather choosy in selecting their victims. Some feed on cattle, horses, dogs, and other animals, while other prefers humans. Effective mosquito control requires both individual and community action. As individuals, we should clean up mosquito breeding places around our home grounds. Dont give the mosquitoes a home. Here are a few tips: Clean debris from rain gutters because water can collect in blocked gutters. Eliminate standing water on and around structures such as at roofs, air conditioner unites, and leaky pipes and faucets. Get rid of water from potted plant dishes, garbage cans, old tires, ditches, wheelbarrows, and hallow trees. Change the water in bird baths weekly. Change the water in pet bowls daily. Control Products and Materials B.T. (bacillus thuringiensis) is a bacteria that controls mosquito larvae (wriggles) and can be used in standing water that cannot be drained such as swimming pools and retention ponds. It is commercially available as Bactomos, Texnar and Vectobac. B.T. is not a threat to other organisms since the bacteria attach only to mosquito larvae. Mineral oil can be added to standing water because it forms a thin lm on the surface of the water which causes larvae and pupae to drown. This is a good control method in plant containers that collect water. Methoprene is a product that prevents larvae from becoming adults. It can be used in water that contains sh, but as with all pesticides, it is important to read the label instruction before applying. Malathion and Pyrethrins are commonly used to control mosquito larvae. Before using these chemicals, read the label and hazard statements concerning sh and other aquatic wildlife to determine if these chemicals are right for your situation. Sprays treat shrubs and the lower branches of trees where mosquitoes rest. Use sprays that are registered for ying insects but will no harm plants. When using chemicals, remember that what we put on our yards may be carried away during rainstorms as storm water runoff. So, it is important to read the instruction label and apply the appropriate amount in the correct area. Also, do not apply chemical before rainstorms because it may be washed away and negatively affect the water quality in our streams, lakes, and reservoirs.

B7-B8 By TIM CROFT 227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@star.com County Commissioner Joanna Bryan last week continued to question the legal ity of a variance recently approved by the Board of County Commissioners. And with county attorney Jeremy No vak present for the meeting the discus sion centered, as Novak noted late in the debate, on differing legal opinions. Novak had not been present during the prior regular meeting when the BOCC, by a 3-1 vote with Bryan dissenting, approved a variance on property owned by Ellis Smith Jr., which is adjacent to Veterans Memorial Park at Beacon Hill. As the variance was being awarded, Bryan came under attack from fellow commissioners for her continued doubts over whether the variance was legal. As part of receiving the variance, Smith, through his father Ellis Smith, pledged to deed to the county just under a quarter acre along the beachfront to provide pub lic beach access. By TIM CROFT 227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@star.com New eyes often offer new perspective on old sights. Such was the exercise last week as the Competitive Florida Partnership process began the assessing, or mapping, of the assets that make Port St. Joe well, Port St. Joe. And if beauty is in the eye of the beholder, having roughly a dozen pairs of new eyeballs focused on the local landscape provided testimony of things maybe many residents take for granted. The great parks, the beautiful bay, gor geous beaches and canopies of oaks, pines and palms new eyes provided a new coat of shellac for the postcard that is Port St. Joe. I would love to live here, said Bob Farley, city manager in White Springs, one of three communities other than Port St. Joe participating in the Department of By TIM CROFT 227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@star.com With the Florida Legislature winding down its annual legisla tive session with consideration of the budget in the coming days, the Coastal Community Association is ramping up its campaign to keep the Cape San Blas Lighthouse on the cape. Specically, the CCA is focusing on a $200,000 state appropriation which is currently in the budget to help the city of Port St. Joe save the lighthouse. This is not just pork, but spoiled pork in our state budget, Pat Hardman, president of the CCA, wrote in an email to asso ciation members and South Gulf County residents. Hardman requested that CCA members and other interested parties phone or email the coun tys legislative delegation earlier this week to protest the appropria tion and ask for its exclusion from the budget. The appropriation was among those cited in a recent Associated Press story outlining some of the local projects lawmakers have ear marked funding for given a budget surplus that has been estimated at more than $1 billion. If passed by the full Legislature, this years appropriation would be in addition to a $325,000 appropria tion secured for the lighthouse re location last year by State Sen. Bill Montford (D-Tallahassee). This years appropriation, which was placed in the budget by Rep. Jimmy Patronis (R-Panama City Beach) who no longer rep resents Gulf County, appears tar geted to defray the costs for down ing Duke Energy power lines to accommodate the relocation of the lighthouse and ancillary build ings two keepers quarters and an oil house from the cape to a Port St. Joe park. The cost of that power line work is estimated at $170,000. Two weeks ago city commis sioners formally awarded the contract for relocation to GAC Contractors. GAC has bid to move the lighthouse and buildings for a combined $560,000, more or less. Of course, this is contingent upon having every dollar that we need, said Mayor Mel Magidson as the bid was being awarded. A detailed outline of current nancial commitments for the project shows the city has approxi mately $531,500 for the relocation, the money coming from a variety of sources.

The U.S. Marine Staff Sgt. has traveled the world, as a soldier and a wounded warrior. He has attended events in honor of veterans, hon oring warriors, from sea to sea. And he will contend that the foot the community of Port St. Joe puts forward to honor wounded warriors is unique, something Silva said he has rarely, if ever, experienced. The good thing and unique thing about Port St. Joe is that it is sincere, Silva said by phone from Maryland where he remains a Marine instructor. He will join the Forgot ten Coast Wounded War rior Weekend, which begins May 14, as a mentor to those warriors and caregivers who have not experienced such an event. People can tell (a color ful adjective for insincerity), that you are only doing this for the community, Silva continued. They can tell. But in Port St. Joe you can feel it is out of pure thankfulness, nothing more. Sometimes that can get lost in translation, but it is good the warriors are there for as long as they are because they can see it is sincere. The Forgotten Coast Wounded Warrior Week end includes two signature events, an honor parade and banquet which will take place May 15 to honor 20 warriors and their caregivers.

By TIM CROFT 227-7827 |@PSJ_Star tcroft@starfl.com Melissa Ramsey didnt need a memo from the Florida Depart ment of Education last Tuesday to know something was wrong. On a day of Florida Compre hensive Assessment Test online testing, students and teachers were left without a connection. The districts IT folks dove in and performed troubleshooting, but before 8 a.m. ET it was clear that testing was not going to go off as planned. Ramsey, the districts supervi sor for testing, called it a day and instructed teachers to send their students back to class. Before students even ar rived for school in Wewahitchka, Ramsey had notied the schools on the north end that testing would take place that day. We called and told them not to even try, Ramsey said. By 10 a.m. ET the FDOE sent an email blast alerting districts to a problem and suggesting a delay in testing. Scheduled for Tuesday was testing for Grade 5 math and reading in Grades 8 and 10. The Grade 10 reading is par ticularly important as students must pass that test to graduate high school. But a problem at Pearson, the company contracted to pro vide testing services to Florida, caused some districts to be un able to log into the companys system. This is the second school year in which online testing has been performed to signicant sections of the FCAT. The problem was not state wide Franklin County schools proceeded with testing without incident but did not sit well with Florida Education Commissioner Pam Stewart who called the prob lem unacceptable. For Gulf District Schools the snafu meant taking full advan tage of the exible schedule put in place for FCAT testing, par ticularly since portions of the test have moved online. We have to be so exible, Ramsey said, noting that with computer testing the testing must be performed within a win dow of time, not a specic day. We were able to shift everything one day. Students who were to take Session 1 of the reading FCAT on Tuesday and the second ses sion the following day instead took Session 1 on Wednesday and completed the second session on Thursday. Friday is reserved each week for makeups, providing a built-in day for exibility of scheduling in the event of problems. You just have to shift, Ramsey said. The state is more exible and we were exible. And while some students were ustered by preparing for testing and then having to take pause, Ramsey said the stress was likely higher for those not actually tak ing any tests. I would say it was probably a more stressful day for the adults than it was for the students, Ramsey said. Testing was back on schedule by the end of the week.

Local The Star| A3 Thursday, May 1, 2014 Help Floridas coastal wildlife Bird stewards needed Special to The Star Do you like the beach? Do you want to help our coastal wildlife survive? Become a part of the statewide efforts to help protect Floridas beachnesting shorebirds. Its that time of year again when Floridas rare shorebirds are nesting on our beaches and bird stewards are needed. Did you know beach-nesting birds like Snowy Plovers, Black Skimmers, American Oystercatchers and Least Terns lay their eggs on top of the sand and raise their young on our local beaches? Chicks less than 6 inches tall can be seen feeding along dunes, coastal lakes and the tidal zone. While they are adapted to survive this harsh environment of sun, sand, and salt with protection from their parents, chicks and eggs struggle to survive when beach-goers inadvertently ush parents from their nests. Left exposed to the harsh sun and predators, one disturbance can spell disaster for these vulnerable chicks. Florida Park Service, Audubon Florida, FWC, DOD, USFWS, Volunteers other partners all work together with communities to help these species survive. Across the Panhandle, Audubon staff, partners and volunteers will be leading beach walks for the public to learn more about these signature Florida birds and/or participate in volunteer training. Locations vary and dates may include May 3, 4, 10, 11, 17 and 18. Space is limited, so contact Bonnie Samuelsen to learn more about an opportunity near you: bsamuelsen@ audubon.or g (850-866-7152). Sites will vary from weekend to weekend depending upon where active nesting is occurring, but may include: Gulf County St. Joseph Peninsula State Park Franklin County St. George Island State Park and Alligator Point Bay County Camp Helen State Park, St. Andrews State Park and Shell Island C E L E B R A T I N G 1 9 Y E A R S O F S E R V I C E I N P O RT S T JO E 2 2 7 70 70 W W W I V E R S M D C O M M A N A G I N G A L L Y O U R F A M I L Y N E E D S F R O M : N O P U R CH A S E NECE S S A R Y T O E N T E R A N D WI N.

Invited by Tourist Develop ment Council executive direc tor Jennifer Jenkins, 12 writers from various U.S. publications are spending the week in Gulf County to experience the outdoor playground rsthand. The guided vacation comes as stage three for Jenkins market ing plans. Previously, the TDC had set its sights on paid and shared media with a heavy focus on spreading the word of Gulf County through social media. With a goal to reach 10,000 Facebook fans for Gulf County in 2014, the number has surpassed 11,000 just four months into the year. In preparation for the earned media push, Jenkins embarked on several missions throughout December and January to net work with representatives from magazines and television stations. While attending meet-andgreets in Birmingham, A.L. and New York City, Jenkins champi oned Gulf County invited interest ed parties to experience the area. From Wednesday through Sunday, 12 journalists, bloggers, producers and editors from as far away as Phoenix, A.Z. and New York City will enjoy a ve-day stay to feature excursions plucked di rectly from the pages of the Gulf County Visitors Guide. Our goal is to have them ex perience Gulf County in a way thats authentic and true, said Jenkins. We want them to fall in love with it the way we know they will. The packed itinerary will be gin on Thursday when the jour nalists head to the north end of the county where theyll travel by boat up the Intracoastal Wa terway to Lake Wimico, dock at White City, and see Wewahitch kas Dead Lakes and apiaries where Tupelo Honey harvesting will be in full swing. Jenkins said she purposely scheduled the visit to coincide with the Tupelo harvest. These are things that you dont see anywhere else, said Jenkins. The following day will be spent touring Cape San Blas as the guests spend time exploring the St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, before an afternoon of paddle boarding, horseback riding and kayaking. On Saturday, the writers will go on a shing tour and experience a cook your own catch dinner, a popular way to get fresh, local seafood in area restaurants. Depending on the target inter ests of their respective publica tions, some writers will go on to visit Rafeld Fisheries in Port St. Joe while others will enjoy local shopping on Reid Avenue. Jenkins said that the rise of blogging has created many on line columnists with a large circle of inuence. Her goal is to welcome those writers to the area twice a year for the next few years in hopes that with each visit, those helping to spread the word of Gulf County will extend far beyond locals and TDC efforts. Jenkins said the event wouldnt have been possible without the TDC partners donating their time, venues, boats and expertise to the cause. We want to show these writ ers what our interests are, said Jenkins. We want them to eat lo cal food and make friends. Before they leave, theyll be Champions of Sunsets, too. TDC puts Gulf County on display for journalists Audubon Beach Nesting Bird Walks for the month of May

Have you heard that old saying, Those who can, do..those who cant, teach? Mr. Ratliffe Pascahall and his wife, Velna Gray, came into my life in 1960. They moved in just a little ways up Stonewall Street from us into a house across from the grammar school. I was going into the seventh grade. And let me tell you, I was so frightened by the unknowns of junior high that I was completely oblivious to the impact that move would have on the rest of my life! They had three sons like stepping stones. Douglas was in the tenth grade. David was a freshman and Martin was one year ahead of me. They were gifted students, terric friends and special mentors, not just to me, but to an entire student body. I didnt, of course, realize then but I have spent a lifetime understanding more each day that children like this dont turn out by accident. They had parents that knew something about life, motivation, communication, expectations, contributions and a healthy respect for people, places and things. Miss Velna Gray taught junior high social studies. She could make studying the building of the Aswan Dam on the Nile River exciting and interesting. You try that sometime! And she was the rst person ever not related to me to pull me aside and tell me I had special ability. Kesley, you have a great sense of learning and the intelligence to comprehend it all. Please dont cheat yourself in the high school days and life ahead. Maybe she told lots of students the same thing. But I never forgot it. I majored in history in college in large part because of the interest she raised in me about the world around us. Mrs. Paschall would have been a success in any endeavor she chose. She had the spirit and the will to do about anything. The fact that she could handle Mr. Paschall AND David and Martin (Doug didnt need as much attention) was testimony to that! Her choosing to teach was an everlasting credit to our school, our community and countless lives just like mine. Mr. Paschall taught high school biology, shop and agriculture. He never told me I was anything special. If you gave a wrong answerespecially if it was way south of the mark, hed kinda stare around the room like youd just dropped in from another planet, nally his eyes would narrow in on the culprit, Did you come to learn today, or did you just come to be entertained! The maddest I ever saw him, besides the time he whipped David and Martin for being late to school, was over a blooming frog. He had me and Bobby Jackson carefully tie this live frog he picked up somewhere to a board. We were supposed to take a scalpel and lightly scrape the skin off one hind leg so the class could better study the blood circulation. We had the frogs leg stretched too tight or we dug a little too deepthe leg popped off! We had cut the thing in two! Mr. Paschall shook for a while and then turned red, I selected, his words were a cross between torrid anger and abject disbelief as he repeated them over and over, the two best men I had for the job. If a class or a group was really not acting to suit him hed shake his head and admonish us, Dont act like them Atwood boys. I dont actually think he knew any boys from Atwood and I can assure you, he meant them no harm. It was just a reference with him to get us to mind our ps and qs. He never missed a ball game of any kind. Usually, he sat up close and cheered for us and reminded our opponents that we were gooder than they were! When the football eld needed the hash lines mowed, he invented a six inch blade that worked perfectly. If you hadnt heard a good fox hunting story in a while, all you had to do was stroll over to the house across from the grammar school. He could talk eloquently or down home Puryear, Tennessee slang in the most entertaining way on any subject you could bring up. He taught, treated and was concerned for the student that was struggling to graduate just the same as the ones he knew were college bound. That was a life lesson that I have never forgotten. He made learning a laughing ride and eld trips into lasting memories. I loved the whole family. And I will carry in my heart to the day I die the love, knowledge and guidance the whole family so unselshly poured into me. I went to visit Mr. Paschall several years ago. He was probably in his early seventies. While he was chastising me about crippling his favorite frog I remembered one of his many abilities, Mr. Paschall, can you still walk on your hands? He said, I dont know, lets see. He proceeded to swing up on his hands and walk half way across the front yard. If you put one ounce of credence into that ignorant and erroneous statement about those who cant, teach..then you just read this story today to be entertained!

TAYLO R UF/IFAS Extension Gulf County Extension Agent, Family & Consumer Sciences and 4-H Y outh Development As you are clearing out clutter, sprucing up and getting ready for summer, you should also start your nancial spring cleaning by guring out where you stand nancially. Here are a few tips to help you get started: 1. GET ORGANIZED. Build a personal nancial ling system; get out your nancial paperwork and le it in order of importance. Separate bills that way, you can track them as they come in, reducing the chance of missed or late payments. Use a plastic tote for a ling cabinet these keep your les dry and are easy to carry from one room to the next should you need to. 2. CREA TE A BUDGET How much money do you have? Are you spending more than you earn? If you dont have a spending record, start one. You can still get on with your nancial spring cleaning today. If you havent been keeping a record, just make a deliberate effort to start now. Try to note all your spending for the next month, right down to the soda from the vending machine. Then, in a months time, youll be able to see where your money is going and, hopefully, see some areas where you can cut back. 3. PAY OFF DEBT Now, lets discuss what most people agonize over, but is a very important subject: Debt. If you have any debt beyond a mortgage, you should try to focus on paying off this debt as quickly as possible. It is also important to try to negotiate your interest rates down with your credit card company if you can. Although this option may not be available to everyone, especially if your credit is not good, its worth trying. If you are not successful in reducing your interest rates, you can use these steps to reduce debt: Stop using credit; charging new items increases the balances on what you already owe on your credit cards. Do not open new lines of credit. Request a free copy of your credit report from www. annualcreditreport.com and honestly assess the problem. Understanding your situation helps when trying to resolve debt issues. Stop denying that you have a debt problem and work on it. You can analyze your debts using Powerpay at powerpay.org. This website gives you a personalized report and plan to reduce your debt based on your input. Break your debt load into manageable chunks; dene your goal and focus on reducing manageable amounts. Special to The Star Maybe we should all be asking for a temporary closure of all federal RED SNAPPER shing. It has been proven in court that they (National Marine Fisheries Service-NMFS and NOAA, do not have a clue what they are doing. This is how our Red Snapper season went from 40 days to 11 days this year (and probably less before it is over). Why dont we just close it for Commercial and recreational sherman for a year giving NOAA and NMFS time to implement a fair system for all. The commercial boys all claim they are accountable for every sh they catch. That is total mullarkey. Most people dont have a clue how commercial shermen get to sh year round for OUR red snapper so let me try and explain. The government gave away 51 percent of our publicly owned Red Snapper to a few commercial shermen to catch and sell rather than letting us all catch our own sh to eat. 2) The government allowed this because supposedly the commercial sector are counting every sh and weighing them. (accountability) A) Many, if not most commercial shermen have become seafood dealers as well as shermen; so now they catch the sh, weigh them themselves, and write their own trip tickets telling the Government how many sh that weighed a certain amount they have caught. Do you think anyone cheats? This is the accountability that Roy Crabtree, Andy Strelcheck and other NMFS and NOAA employees claim to be foolproof. These are the same people that just lost a battle in court and were told that they have failed miserably in their jobs as to providing the accountability for the recreational sector. I would bet, if they let the recreational sector catch their own sh, bring them in and weigh them themselves and then call it inthe recreational sector would be just as accountable as the commercial sector is now and we could be shing year round as well. FYI Most of these commercial shermen dont even sh any more they have been given our sh so they can sit at home and rake in money for letting others catch sh for them yet you and I cannot even catch our own supper. While the NMFS and NOAA let this go on, the Charter for Hire are essentially being put out of business by closing the season to 11 days for Red Snapper, No triggersh, gag grouper for a few months. How can the charter boats make a living? It is hurting all our businesss that rely on tourism to make a living. How can all the rest of us ever get a chance to go catch our own sh when they have given our shing rights away to about 400 commercial shermen to make money off of OUR Fish?. And meanwhile, the commercial boys, sh year round for snapper and can never reach their quota. Does that sound odd?? What real good is an 11 day season? Of course a charter shing business cannot stay in business very long with these shortened seasons that are now on all species. Why would they let commercial shermen catch sh for other people when they wont let charter boats take people shing that want to catch their own Red Snapper to eat, or the general public that just wants to catch their own to eat?? So now, they (NOAA ,NMFS)are arbitrarily putting the CFH sector and many, many people and businesss out of work all for the good of a few commercial shermen. If Red snapper is closed for charter shermen and recreational sherman it should be closed for the Commercial shermen as well. Take Red Snapper off the restaurants menu. If we cannot even go catch some for our own dinner, why should we be able to buy it from someone else?? Fire Roy Crabtree and Andy Strelcheck from the NMFS, NOAA. Get the environmental groups like Oceans Conservancy, EDF, Pew and their puppet groups like Share the Gulf, out of sheries Management. Please call Steve Southerland, Marco Rubio and Bill Nelson. Ask them to help get our sh back! These Fish are Our Fish Capt. Tom Adams Mexico Beach Charters No snapper shing for all Self-Explanatory Dear Editor, Former Mexico Beach City Council member Gary Woodhams remarks at the Jan. 14, 2014 regular city council meeting, his rst meeting after he was tapped to temporarily ll the seat when council member Lanny Howell abruptly resigned in December: Woodham stated, I hope and pray this council can work together in a positive manner. We have so much to be thankful for. Just three months later, Woodhams comments to the Panama City News Herald on the night of April 22, after he was defeated for the same council seat by Mary Blackburn (281 votes to 250 votes): Woodham attributed the [election] results to a successfully orchestrated campaign to mobilize female voters. They did a great job, but they did the city a great disservice, Woodham said... Woodham said a silent majority that agreed with the citys current direction did not show up to the polls, allowing a disgruntled group to take control of Mexico Beach, he said... The direction they will be moving is backward, not forward, Woodham said, I think it is going to hurt this community... Politics at its nest.

Economic Opportunity pilot project Competitive Florida Partnership. We just dont have what you have here. I am so im pressed with this area. There is a true Florida lifestyle here. Farley was among rough ly a dozen folks who came from out of town to partici pate in a Community Asset Mapping Exercise, which is a signicant part of the Com petitive Florida Partnership process. The Partnership aims to provide a template for local economic development in a community. Along with Farley came staff from state agencies such as the Department of Environmental Protection (an individual involved with considering the ports appli cation for dredging the ship channel), the Florida De partment of Transportation and the Florida Department of State. Enterprise Florida and Floridas Great Northwest, quasi-public economic de velopment agencies, were also represented as was the Florida League of Cities and the Capitol Area Action Agency. The goal is to bring a fresh perspective to the as sets the community has and also provide a resource for ideas from the outside, said Julie Dennis, program coor dinator for the DEO. Included in that group was Farley from another Competitive Florida Part nership community. We try to bring in people from the other communi ties we are working with, Dennis said. They can gain ideas to take back home with them or provide new ideas they have tried at home that worked. The group, which in cluded local representatives from the city, Tourist De velopment Council, Port St. Joe Redevelopment Agency, Gulf County Economic De velopment and Chamber of Commerce, was divided into four teams and sent into the community to assess, pho tograph and verbally record assets, ranging from parks to education to health care to the waterfront. After a morning assess ing, the teams returned to discuss what they had seen, noting community strengths and suggesting ways to build upon those strengths, offer ing everything from brand ing slogans to improvements for the Centennial Building and Constitution Convention Museum. This is meant as a brainstorming exercise for the community, Dennis said. We had some really good conversations. This is a brain-storming exercise to help the city come up with action plans. Some of those action plans are already in blackand-white, as distributed by Marina Pennington, the citys consultant on plan ning and the comprehensive plan. Those projects include restoration of the Centen nial Building, the possible relocation of the Constitu tion Convention Museum to a bay front park; renovation of the museum and existing Constitution City Park; and relocation of the Cape San Blas Lighthouse to George Core Park, among other items. Under the Competitive Florida process the idea is to match action projects and plans with economic development. The groups also came back with a host of observa tions about Port St. Joe and ideas about how to improve what is already here. To hear the opinions of other people of what we see every day was very inter esting, said Paula Pickett, director of the Chamber of Commerce. There were obvious assets Sacred Heart on the Gulf; the Gulf/Franklin Center and access to higher education; the waterfront and the many options it provides; the Port of St. Joe and the deepwater bulkhead on the old mill site; the many city parks; the Port City Trail; downtown historic areas; and the Arizona Chem ical site owned outright by the Port Authority. We thought the down town had a great start and we would want to continue those improvements, said Alissa Slade-Lotane with the Depart ment of State. Reid Avenue is a major asset. The group identied op portunities for improvements better signage; improve ments of the low docks; creat ing after-school programs and opportunities for students; the Washington Recreation area; creating a gateway to the city through highway beautica tion as just a few examples. And the group also identi ed threats that hold the city back a lack of trust across races and economic classes; somewhat segmented de mographics; and the lack of affordable housing among the most pressing. The city needs to own its own destiny, said Tim Cen ter of the Capitol Area Ac tion Agency. It is about the community that is here and how it will sustain itself. And part of that destiny, almost certainly, will be an operational port. Hanging over last weeks exercise was the impact that econom ic development will have on the varied assets that make the city what it is. Weve looked at existing assets, said Mark Yelland of the DEO. How will they be affected by such a big ef fort with the port? A quandary most of the folks in the room, seeking to fuel local economic devel opment, seemed eager and willing to contemplate. 9 4 5 4 HWY 9 8 BEA C ON HILL A T THE MEXIC O BEA CH CIT Y LIMIT S 8 5 0 6 4 7 8 3 1 0 THE T A H ILL ON C B EA 8 9 H WY 4 5 4 9 0 1 3 8 7 4 6 0 5 8 S L IMIT Y C IT CH B EA O MEXIC GREA T SELEC TION OF ALL Y OUR F A VORITE BEER WINE & SPIRIT S LIVE ON THE POOP DECK IN THE CRO W NEST RAND Y ST ARK THURSD A Y 7 PM FRID A Y 9 PM SA TURD A Y 9 PM BO SPRING BAND FL ABBERGASTED BAND ALL TIMES EASTERN FUN TIMES 0 1 3 8 7 4 6 0 5 8 S L IMIT Y C IT CH B EA O MEXIC S S PIRIT & WINE B EER VORITE A F OUR Y A LL O F TION S ELEC T GREA LIVE ON THE POOP DECK UPCOMING EVENTS KAROKE FRID A Y & SA TURD A Y 9PM WITH NA T ALIE RAND Y ST ARK ON THE POOP DECK 6 PM FIRST SUND A Y CELEBRA TION 2 FOR 1 ALL D A Y & NIGHT Auto Insurance Hannon Insur ance 227-1133 Sh o p a t H o m e! Thursday, May 1, 2014 Local A5 | The Star That deed was part of last weeks consent agenda and Bryan re quested it be pulled and urged commissioners to decline the deed. I believe the deed further compounds the problem, Bryan said. A private practicing attorney, Bryan ques tioned whether the origi nal minor replat of the parcel, which led to the variance request into es tablished setbacks in or der to build on the prop erty, which abuts park land, was legal. She said the attor neys written opinion of two weeks prior seemed to indicate the board could approve a replat in violation of the LDR. Novak said it was a proper replat, but also said the replat was not within the purview of the BOCC. The BOCCs lone con sideration in the matter was reviewing and ap proving or denying the variance request. He said the replat was permissible under county land develop ment regulations and within the purview of the county planning office. The planner had the authority to approve the minor replat, Novak said. He contended that Bryans characterization of the replat being illegal was faulty because it was based on just one section of the LDRs, that speak ing to additional replats of a parent parcel. In this case, Ellis Smith purchased the property, subdivided it and sold one parcel to his son who subsequently subdivided that parcel. The variance per tained to the parcel created by the second division. Novak said the sub sequent section of the LDRs, allowing such divisions on land con tiguous to the original replat, prevailed over Bryans argument. Bryan said that was incorrect. This is not contigu ous, Bryan said. This is the parent parcel. The parent parcel is the par ent parcel. Your argu ment does not hold up. But Novak argued that the county planner applied rules and a pro cess that had been fol lowed for decades. The planning office had op erated within its estab lished policies. Until the rules are changed, this is what should be applied, No vak said. He said if commission ers did not like the rules being applied, they were the ones with the power to change the rules. Bryan replied, It is my opinion we did not follow our LDR. The variance request was imbued with con troversy to its location abutting Veterans Me morial Park. Smith is at least the fourth owner of the land in question in the past 15 years and previous own ers have sought to have it removed from the tax rolls due to the lots di mensions and proximity to the park. Smith ran into re sistance from some in the community when he previously sought a vari ance on the property. In part, Novak argued last week, that could be perceived as a hardship. In a debate over the issue falling under a hardship case for the variance, Bryan had ar gued any hardship had been created by Smiths subdividing the property, not any external action, therefore not qualifying for a hardship. But Novak wondered aloud whether the hard ship wasnt created years before, suggesting the adjacent land being created as a park by the U.S. Department of the Interior could be consid ered the cause. The BOCC accepted the deed with Bryan vot ing no, contending that in her legal opinion the BOCCs course of action was wrong. Administrator pay With little discus sion commissioners ap proved a motion from Commissioner Carmen McLemore to increase the annual salary of county administrator Don Butler to equal that of Sheriff Mike Harrison. Harrison, as a consti tutional officer, has his salary, roughly $104,000 per year, set by the Flor ida Legislature. Bryan, while not spe cifically dissenting, said the item was not on the agenda and the BOCC should allow for public input before upping But lers salary by roughly $20,000 a year. Bryan, who also won dered where the ad ditional money would come from, was over ruled and Butlers sala ry was raised to $104,000 effective immediately. VARIANCE from page A1 ASSETS from page A1 LIGHTHOUSE from page A1 funds supplementing new state appropriation, if ap proved, dollars for the reloca tion would be in hand. This unnecessary ad ditional taxpayer expendi ture is a waste of taxpayer money and is not necessary to preserve the historic light house, Hardman said. The CCA has been criti cal of characterizations from Magidson that the re location would not cost city taxpayers when the state, if this years appropriation survives the budget process, will have sent more than $500,000 in tax money. I have committed from day one that no money from the (citys) budget would be spent on the project, said Magidson during several commission meetings. In addition, the CCA contended that contrary to language in the state budget, the $200,000 is not to save the lighthouse. The CCA would be able to accomplish saving the lighthouse by moving it to Salinas Park using private donations together with the previous state appropriation of $325,000. The present and pledged donations plus the previous state grant will be sufcient to pay for the relocation to Salinas Park, without fur ther use of public taxpayer dollars, state or local, Hard man said. Hardman and her group also note other needs, partic ularly clean drinking water, pressing on the city. Addi tionally, the history of the 160year-old lighthouse would be lost by a move to the city. Using additional dollars to move the lighthouse is un necessary and a waste of tax dollars, Hardman said. The major hurdle to the CCAs campaign remains what it has been since De cember 2012 the federal government deeded the lighthouse and ancillary buildings to the city of Port St. Joe following an applica tion window. The Board of County Commissioners also applied to receive the lighthouse, but the citys application, based on a proposal for a BayP ark which has since been shelved, was accepted. The parade will meander through town from WindMark to the Centennial Building, traveling Reid and Long Av enues en route while escorted by the Warrior Watch Riders. The banquet will be fol lowed the next day by sh ing with local boat captains, who donate their time, the expense of a day on the wa ter and their vessel to ensure sh end up dangling on the end of lines. Those events, Silva noted, can make a wounded warrior feel like a circus animal and be overwhelming after spending months surrounded only by family and caregivers while convalescing serious, life-altering, wounds. It is a lot, Silva said. You dont expect people to do that. You dont like being told thank you for doing your job. And that is all I was do ing, my job. Silva, as a participant in a Wounded Warrior event and a frequent visitor to the area since, said the community spirit of Port St. Joe slices through that curtain. It is a special essence you nd in Port St. Joe, Silva said. It is such a unique ex perience. A lot of towns dont do this. But people in Port St. Joe put aside all their differ ences to put on something special. It touches you on a per sonal level. That is often not the case in larger towns, at larger events, Silva said. Folks par ticipate in smaller numbers, unwilling or unable to put work, school and kids and the treadmill of life aside. They mean to do well, they want to do well, but sometimes in a bigger town the event is kind of drowned out by so much going on in life, Silva said. In Port St. Joe that is not the case at all. Silva has an unusual per spective on the community in that Port St. Joe has be come a frequent traveling destination. He has been here when the Wounded Warrior Week end, when the Semper Fi Sisters Beach Blast in the fall was not underway, and he has been in the shops, been in the restaurants, walked the streets. The locals remember you and talk to you and you see how much they support you, Silva said. It is wow. That is something you dont see much anymore. I have been all around the world and that is something unique to Port St. Joe. That is evident in the Wounded Warrior events, Sil va said, because the events are not a weeklong or monthlong undertaking. The events do not reect a temporary state of mind. The locals there are al ways talking about how to make the events better, Sil va said. It is not a part-time thing for Port St. Joe. They arent there for themselves. It is not about Port St. Joe. They dont want to do it better for Port St. Joe. They want to do it for the warriors and family and there is a dif ference. A big difference. Send your letters to : LETTERS TO THE EDITOR P.O.

These changes take effect dur ing the 2014-15 hunting season and are part of a larger, statewide proj ect aimed at managing deer on a more local level and providing stake holders with a greater say in deer management. The FWC conducted a public out reach and input process in northwest Florida beginning in early 2013. Since then, the Commission has received substantial input and comments from hunters, farmers and the general public regarding how they would like to see deer managed in the newly proposed DMUs. As a result of this outreach pro cess, the FWC passed rules for both public and private lands in both of the DMUs in Zone D, with Interstate 10 being the dividing line between the two DMUs. South of I-10 will be called DMU-D1, and north of I-10 is DMU-D2. Now bucks harvested south of I-10 in DMU-D1 must have antlers with at least 2 points (each point having to be at least 1 inch long) on one side and at least one antler 5 inches or more in length. North of I-10 in DMU-D2, the minimum antler requirement is now 3 points (each point having to be at least 1 inch long) on one side and have at least one antler 5 inches or more in length, or have an antler with a main beam length of 10 inches or more. The rule includes an exception for youth to the increased antler require ments in both DMUs whereby hunt ers 15 years old and younger may continue to harvest bucks that have at least one antler 5 inches or more in length. The Commissions action also changes the antlerless deer season (doe days) on private lands within Zone D. During antlerless deer sea son, does may be harvested as well as bucks with less than 5-inch antlers. But it is illegal to take spotted fawns. In DMU-D1 (south of I-10), the ant lerless season was reduced to four days consisting of two popular holi day weekends (the weekends after Thanksgiving and Christmas). In DMU-D2 (north of I-10), ant lerless deer season was lengthened to eight days distributed across four weekends (Saturday-Sunday after Thanksgiving, rst weekend of muz zleloading gun season, third weekend of general gun season and the week end after Christmas). The purpose of modifying the ant lerless deer season was to spread out the hunting opportunity, so that more hunters could participate with out reducing deer populations. These changes will be monitored to mea sure any impacts they may have on deer harvest and hunter satisfaction within each DMU. For more information on Hunting Zone Ds newly established DMUs and their respective modications to deer hunting regulations, click My FWC.com/Deer. Special to The Star The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) at its April 16 meeting in Tal lahassee moved forward with a proposal to create a Gulf Reef Fish Data Re porting System that would help improve recreational reef sh data collection in Florida Gulf waters. This new system would help de termine how many anglers are targeting reef sh in the Gulf. A sample of these anglers would be surveyed to provide more accurate catch and effort data for reef sh trips. This proposal will be brought back before the Commission at its June meeting in Fort Myers for a nal public hearing. If approved, private rec reational anglers shing from a boat in Gulf state waters (excluding Monroe County), including those 65 and older, would be re quired to take part in the Gulf Reef Fish Data Re porting System to harvest or possess any of the fol lowing reef sh: red and vermilion snapper; gag, black and red grouper; gray triggersh; greater and lesser amberjack; banded ruddersh; and al maco jack. Anglers, captain and crew aboard for-hire ves sels would not be required to partake in the data-col lection system because they already have their own survey. Anglers under 16 years of age and those shing from a vessel with a vessel recreational sh ing license would also be exempt. This would be a no-cost program, due to a ve-year National Fish and Wildlife Foundation Gulf restora tion grant. The Commission directed staff to include language for a ve-year sunset clause so that when the grant funding ends, the program would be evalu ated and reconsidered. If the Gulf Reef Fish Data Reporting System is approved at the June meet ing, data reporting would be required by April 1, 2015. Anglers are encouraged to sign up when they renew their shing license. Special to The Star The lionsh is an invasive species that threatens Flori das native wildlife and habi tat. With that in mind, FWC on April 16 moved forward with steps to combat the spread of invasive lionsh. Changes proposed by FWC staff at todays meet ing near Tallahassee will be brought back before the Commission at its June meeting in Fort Myers for nal approval. Changes include: Prohibiting the impor tation of live lionsh; Prohibiting the devel opment of aquaculture of lionsh; Allowing the harvest of lionsh when diving with a rebreather, a device that re cycles air and allows divers to remain in the water for longer periods of time; and Increasing opportuni ties that will allow partici pants in approved tourna ments and other organized events to spear lionsh or other invasive species in areas where spearshing is not allowed. This will be done through a permitting system. Staff has been working with the Florida Legislature on a bill in support of the initiatives to prohibit the im portation of live lionsh and the aquaculture of lionsh. By targeting the im portation of lionsh to our state, we can limit the number of new lionsh that nd their way into Florida waters and, at the same time, encourage further harvest to reduce the exist ing invasive population, said State Rep. Holly Ras chein, sponsor of the House bill. These sh pose a sig nicant threat to Floridas ecosystem, and I am proud to stand in support of the proposed ban. Anything we can do to limit new lionsh introductions and further fa cilitate the development of a commercial market for this invasive species is a step in the right direction. Changes like these will make it easier for divers to remove lionsh from Florida waters and will help prevent additional introduc tions of lionsh into marine habitats. Lionsh control efforts, from outreach and educa tion to regulatory changes, have been a priority for FWC staff. In 2013, they hosted the rst ever Lionsh Sum mit, which brought together various stakeholders from the public as well as man agement and research elds to discuss the issues and brainstorm solutions. The changes proposed at todays meeting came from ideas that were discussed at the Lionsh Summit. To learn more about these changes, visit My FWC.com/Commission and Commission Meetings. To learn more about lionsh, visit MyFWC.com/Fishing and click on Saltwater, Recreational Regulations and Lionsh. FWC moves ahead with Fulf Reef Fish Data Reporting System SPONSORED BY Inshore/Bay Local area waters are exploding with good fish catches this week. St. Joe Bay is filled with good slot sized trout around the Blacks Island channel and holding on the flats surrounding the island as well. Drifting live shrimp under a popping cork will prove to be deadly for the trout. Some flounder have been caught in these spots also, but more fish and bigger flounder are coming from deeper water in the canal and around the old shipping towers right now. Cobia have finally showed up in our area in good numbers this week. Several 60-pounders have been landed out of Mexico Beach and a 82 pounder is the biggest that we have heard about so far.

Many of the participating artists make their work right at The Artery with other area artists taking part as well. With Mothers Day right around the corner, all of the artists have included work that would make unique gift items and are priced accordingly. Weve got some new artists participating this year, and many of the past participating artists have expanded their offerings, said Leslie Wentzell, owner of The Artery, and herself a working artist. Youll nd lots of functional art beautiful handmade pieces that serve a function such as delicately handcrafted hummingbird feeders, wall hangings that double as a secret key-holder, serving trays, unique handmade buttons and even some salt-and-pepper shakers. These de nitely make unique gifts for your mother or for yourself, Wentzell said. The Artery is a working art studio that is open to the public for classes and drop-in art activities. The studio will be transformed for the sale, but underneath it all, Youll get a glimpse of the fun and funky atmosphere here, Wentzell said. There is a strong emphasis on pottery in the studio, because Wentzell is a clay artist, but she also brings in other artists to teach a variety of classes, including painting, mosaics, creative writing and more. Just as important as the art experiences here at The Artery, is the sense of community and fellowship, Wentzell said. Seeing the studio, and more importantly, meeting the people who come here to be creative is one reason we open our doors for an event like this. The Artery holds two Studio Sales each year one in early December for the Christmas holidays, and one in Spring, traditionally right before Mothers Day.

Growing up in a family full of artists, Sophia cant remember a time when they werent doing something art-related. Whether it was building clay pieces with her grandmother, or learning new painting techniques with her Poppy, she was always surrounded by art fanatics who were constantly encouraging her to use my creativity. One of her favorite childhood memories was when her Poppy sat for at least an hour, letting her paint a portrait of him. He made her feel like a professional artist even let her use his good canvas and acrylic paints. Although her painting was way out of proportion, and only slightly looked like him, Poppy made Sophia feel so proud of her painting and art skills. This moment made her want to continue to paint and draw, and has inuenced her to complete many of my favorite art pieces. Sophia loves every type of art whether its pottery, watercolor, acrylics, charcoal or printmaking. She plans on becoming an occupational therapist, but still plans on continuing art as a hobby. Art is a big part of her life, and will continue to be moving forward. LAINE, GODWIN PROM QUEEN, KING DAZZLING DOLPHINS HA T DAY A T PSJES!

Humane Society base on 10th Street in Port St. Joe and how quickly the ranks of candidates for the DAWGS in Prison program are lled with shelter dogs, the volunteers and staff at the SJBHS is nding reasons that grant dollars remain unspent elusive. There is a real need, said Lynda Gangeme, a volunteer for the SJBHS who with her husband, John, also a grant writer, secured the Pet Smart grant. And they are pretty proud of that work. The grant is the largest the foun dation has given out to such a small area and after requesting $15,000 the couple was quite pleased with the higher award. This (SJBHS) shelter is full of dogs and cats. They dont have homes and they are difcult to adopt. What is the shelter going to do with all the puppies? Unfortunately, too often unwanted dogs end up being eutha nized, Lynda Gangeme said The size of the grant and the size and demographics of the area it is meant to serve, Gangeme said, is intentional. They wanted to make a big impact in a small area, said John Gangeme. They dont normally provide a large grant for such a small area. Lynda added that the Gangemes hope to have the spay and neuter of cats included in subsequent grants sought from Pet Smart. Melody Townsend, SJBHS shelter director, said the grant was important because rural communities generally lack the resources for a broad spay/ neuter outreach program. Large grants are typically targeted to urban and heavily populated areas. But Townsend noted, Pet Smart was, impressed with the application submitted by the Gangemes. The SJBHS had a year to spend the grant funds and concentrated particularly on areas such as Oak Grove, Highland View and North Port St. Joe. But with funds remaining the push is on to continue the work and exhaust the grant dollars. The service is entirely free there is no hidden charge or ne print. Simply contact the St. Joseph Bay Humane Society at 227-1103 or www. sjbhumanesociety.or g to secure the appli cation form and ll out the form. In return, you will be given a voucher which can be taken to par ticipating veterinarians Dr. Hobson Fulmer in Apalachicola included as well as vets in Panama City and the vet will send the bill to the SJBHS for payment. No other expense is incurred by the dog owners. Giving an unwanted or surprise litter away, Townsend said, does not address the problem as there is no telling where those dogs will end up and whether those offspring will be spayed or neutered. Passing on the problem, Townsend noted, does not address the problem. What happens to their offspring? she said. CANINES from page B1 keeping an eye out for an unattended ag or mascot. Mr. Willie from Washington Rehabilitation and Nursing Center and Mr. John from Chautauqua Rehabilitation and Nursing Center took this job seriously and scouted the lodge on a regular basis to snatch the rst ag or mascot they could. They said they wanted the most ransom points for their team and everyone was on their toes with these eagle eyed guys around. To make the event even more wonderful, some amazing volunteers came and provided meals for everyone. Lunch the rst day was a tasty cookout hosted by Gentiva Home Care and Emerald Coast Hospice. Tommy Portas grilled some great burgers and hot dogs while battling some heavy winds. However, the winds didnt stop him from grilling and they didnt stop everyone from eating the meal. Marsha Dickey RN, SDC from The Bridge at Bay St Joe made homemade cathead biscuits and grilled some delicious pancakes for everyone for breakfast. Then for their lunch on the second day Gina Ferland RN, the Administrator of NHC HomeCare, brought ham and turkey sub sandwiches with homemade cheesy, broccoli soup. Gina also created some wonderful snack bags for everyone to take with them on their trip home. The thoughtfulness and friendliness of these kind individuals made this event even more enjoyable. The award ceremony took place the second day just before lunch. The winning team was from Washington Rehabilitation and Nursing Center. They amassed a total of 32 points that included a 5 point ransom penalty Mr. Willie was able to extract from the team from Chautauqua Rehabilitation and Nursing Center. The other awards that were presented that day were Most Spirited to the team from Chautauqua Rehabilitation and Nursing Center, Most Competitive went to Signature HealthCARE of Courtyard, Most Resourceful went to The Bridge at Bay St Joe and Best Teamwork was awarded to Signature HealthCARE of North Florida. As the last day drew to a close and the buses were being loaded, elders from different homes were shaking hands, hugging necks and asking when they could come back. For Mr. John from Chautauqua Rehabilitation and Nursing Center it was the rst time he had ever been to the beach and he said he loved it! Their smiles were big and their faces were aglow with excitement from all of the fun they had. Everyone waved goodbye as they pulled out of the parking lot, but I know many of them were thinking of different strategies for the next Amazing Race.

Local B6 | The Star Thursday, May 1, 2014 From gardening to barbecuing, marauding mosquitoes are common spoilers of outdoor activities in our sunshine state. They can be more than a nuisance. Some mosquitoes transmit diseases to both humans and animals. Most notably encephalitis to man and horses, and heartworm to dogs. Regardless of species, water is essential for mosquito breeding. Since nearly half of our states land area is subject to ooding, its no wonder that we have so many of these persistent pests. Mosquito eggs are laid in water, on the sides of containers where they soon will be covered by water, or on damp soil where they can hatch when covered by rainwater or high tides. A single female may lay several batches of 50 to 200 eggs. The eggs of some oodwater mosquitoes may dry out for more than a year and still hatch in two or three days, change to pupae in about a week, and emerge as adults two days later. It may seem hard to believe, but not all mosquitoes bite. Only the females have biting mouth parts. Male mosquitoes feed on the nectar of owers. Female mosquitoes also feed on the nectar. But, a blood meal usually is necessary to mature the eggs. Lady mosquitoes might be classed as gourmets. Theyre rather choosy in selecting their victims. Some feed on cattle, horses, dogs, and other animals, while other prefers humans. Effective mosquito control requires both individual and community action. As individuals, we should clean up mosquito breeding places around our home grounds. Dont give the mosquitoes a home. Here are a few tips: Clean debris from rain gutters because water can collect in blocked gutters. Eliminate standing water on and around structures such as at roofs, air conditioner unites, and leaky pipes and faucets. Get rid of water from potted plant dishes, garbage cans, old tires, ditches, wheelbarrows, and hallow trees. Change the water in bird baths weekly. Change the water in pet bowls daily. Control Products and Materials B.T. (bacillus thuringiensis) is a bacteria that controls mosquito larvae (wriggles) and can be used in standing water that cannot be drained such as swimming pools and retention ponds. It is commercially available as Bactomos, Texnar and Vectobac. B.T. is not a threat to other organisms since the bacteria attach only to mosquito larvae. Mineral oil can be added to standing water because it forms a thin lm on the surface of the water which causes larvae and pupae to drown. This is a good control method in plant containers that collect water. Methoprene is a product that prevents larvae from becoming adults. It can be used in water that contains sh, but as with all pesticides, it is important to read the label instruction before applying. Malathion and Pyrethrins are commonly used to control mosquito larvae. Before using these chemicals, read the label and hazard statements concerning sh and other aquatic wildlife to determine if these chemicals are right for your situation. Sprays treat shrubs and the lower branches of trees where mosquitoes rest. Use sprays that are registered for ying insects but will no harm plants. When using chemicals, remember that what we put on our yards may be carried away during rainstorms as storm water runoff. So, it is important to read the instruction label and apply the appropriate amount in the correct area. Also, do not apply chemical before rainstorms because it may be washed away and negatively affect the water quality in our streams, lakes, and reservoirs.
