County Approves Applying for

Beach Restoration Permit

By Tim Croft
Star News Editor
They kept the beach ball tumbling
County commissioners, during their reg-
ular bi-monthly meeting on Tuesday, unani-
mously approved a request to begin the
application process for a permit for the pro-
posed beach restoration project on St. Joseph
The cost of the permit application, which
will be submitted for approval to the Florida
Department of Environmental Protection, will
be roughly $50,000, said county administra-
tor Don Butler.
The county Tourist Development Council
has committed $20,000 and the remaining
funds will be available as part of a fee waiver
from a state petroleum site cleanup program
which the county can earn.
"It (the permit application) will not affect
reserves or the cash carry forward," Butler
said. "This would give us a head start."
Last week. after a presentation bi Michael
Dombrowski. a.n engineer conductine-a feasi-
bility study, the Beach Ad\isonr Committee
chose to scale back the beach restoration
project due to conflicts with Eglin Air Force
property and the Stump Hole. where the
Florida Department of Transportationr is con-
ducung a study rega-rding maintaining C-30E
at the Stump Hole.
The beach restoration project will encom-
pass 5.9 miles it was originally more than-
. seven miles from the St. Joseph Peninsula
State Park to the just north of the Stump
Hole, or roughly the location of the old Dunes
"The project will perform just as well if it's
the five point nine miles or the seven miles."
said Laurel Eiler with the Beach Advisory
Addluonally. the new scope of the project
eliminates the proposal for eroins near the
Stump Hole to regulate current tlows and the
cost and length of permitting process should
be less than originally proposed.
"Now it's more like a ty-pical beach proj-
eet." Eiler said.
With no hard bottom below the water, no
seagrass issues in the area and appropriate
sand close to the project area. "We antici-
pate a pretty easy permitting process." Eiler
Dombrowski had indicated that a mini-
mal scope of work was required to move for-
ward on the permit in advance of finalizing
costs of the project and the special assess-
ments which must be approved by voting

established last year, with gulf-front property,
owners bearing the greatest burden, before
the project can move forward.
The committee will work over the next 30-
45 days to finalize public beach access areas
to secure as much state matching money as
possible for the project, which is currently
estimated to cost about $18 million.
Depending on finalizing sufficient beach
access, the advisory committee is hopeful of
receiving about a 40 percent match from the
Commissioners, on Tuesday, also
approved a request from the TDC to- levy an
additional one penny tourist bed tax, the
revenues from which would be earmarked
exclusively for beach restoration.
In other business taken up on Tuesday:
Doug Kent, executive director of the
Health Department, and Marshall Nelson,

the county's emergency manager, will host a
seminar on June 22 to discuss potentials and
scenarios for a flu pandemic.
Kent said with the avian flu spread-
ing around the globe see related article in
this newspaper the county needed to plan;
should such a pandemic impact the region.
The seminar, which will be open to the
public from 8:30 a.m. until noon and devoted
to key officials from 1:30 p.m. to 5 p.m., is
being funded by a $6,000 grant.
"If they lose containment .(of the bird flu)
it's every community for itself," Kent said of
information from state and federal health
officials. "I know I am ge-tting ahead of myself,
but we,need to pre-plan for it."
There will be a community blood drive
in conjunction with Bay Medical Center at the
library on Thursday, the same day the county
will hold its annual Health Fair, which will be

Wewahitchka to

Adopt Predator


By Tim Croft
Star News Editor
Sexual offenders and predators are not
welcome in Wewahitchka unless they are
looking for some swampland.
Recognizing a growing trend toward
restricting where sexual predators can live
and the high recidivism rate. among such
convicted felons, the City of Wewahitchka
is in the process of adopting an ordinance
which would bar sexual offenders or sexual
predators from taking up residence within
2,500 feet of a school, school bus stop, day
care center, park, playground or "other places
where children regularly congregate."
Effectively, the ordinance, for which city
commissioners held a first reading Monday
during their regular bi-monthly meeting, pro-
hibits individuals convicted of a sexual offense
involving a victim under the age of 16 from
establishing a permanent residence within
roughly a half-mile of any place in town where'
children gather and/or play.
The 2,500 foot limit would be measured
following a straight line from the outer prop-
erty line of the. residence to the nearest
property line of a school, bus stop, day care
center, etc.
Property owners are likewise prohibited
from renting or selling any residence to an
individual who would be impacted by the
ordinance, re: a sexual offender.
The Commission will hold a second read-
ing of the ordinance, after it has been prop-
erl\ advertised, in April.
The only exceptions to the ordinance are
those individuals who are minors or were
minors when the sexual offense was perpe--
trated or those convicted of such offenses
who _-have as of the date of the adoption
of the ordinance established a permanent
residence within 2.500 feet of those areas
designatcdi by the ordinance.
"This is modeled after the ordinance
in Panama City," said city manager Don
Minchew, adding that with similar ordinances
being considered or passed by other Bay
County municipalities such as Springfield
and Cedar Grove, Gulf County would look
increasingly attractive for sexual offenders
seeking a place to live in the region.
"Those ordinances leave very few places
in Bay County," Minchew said. "Where are
they going to go? We were very concerned."
So Commissioners decided to symboli-
cally and practically place a "Do Not Enter"
sign on the Gulf County line for sexual offend-
ers, particularly, as the ordinance notes, as

New Clinic Promises Fast, Friendly Service

By Despina Williams
Star Staff Writer
County residents who
once traveled to Panama City's
Gulf Coast Medical Center to
receive basic services can now
save the trip, thanks to the
opening of an outpost family
practice clinic in Port St. Joe.
At last Thursday's
ribbon cutting ceremony
for the Gulf Coast Medical
Center Primary Care Clinic,
Gulf Coast president and
CEO Todd Gallati said the
.hospital's expansion into Gulf
County represented a "win-

certainly there for the

patients in the area, but it's
a shame to travel there for
basic diagnostics," he said.
The hospital had sought
to expand into the area for
some time, and received a
golden opportunity when Port
St. Joe doctors Anila and P.V.
Poonai retired last March.
Gallati began negotiations
with the Poonais in April
to lease their former office
building, located at 300 Long
The office was completely
renovated last summer
and now features three
examination rooms, one lab
and a small X-ray room.
Gallati said he hoped to
add CAT and MRI scanners,

formerly a carport.
The clinic now offers
general medical care and
performs some lab work.
Dr. Carol Sutton, who
has 23 years experience in
family practice, serves as the
clinic's only doctor.
Dr. Mallory Smith, who
leads a residency program
in Georgia, plans to join the
staff as soon as he receives
his Florida certification.
Sutton worked at the
Health Department for 10
years and signed on for the
new assignment because she
sought greater independence.
"I don't have a boss

laughed Sutton, who said

many of her patients followed

priorities was a maximum 15-

arid believes patients will
appreciate the clinic's "fast,

With a new Sacred Heart
Hospital set to open in Port
St. Joe-in 2007, Gallati said
the clinic will continue to
enhance the community's
well being.
"Even with a hospital,
there will be a need for more
medical care in the region,"
he said.

Aerial Photographer Makes PAPA Proud

By Despina Williams
Star Staff Writer
Debbie Hooper is still a
relative novice at aerial pho-
tography, having taken up
the hobby only four years
ago, but her skill at the art
form has earned her recog-
nition from an international
photography association.
Hooper picked up
four awards at the annu-
al Professional Aerial
Photographers Association
(PAPA) International
Conference, held Feb. 24-26
in Orlando.
She earned first place for
her cleverly-titled, "One Too

en remains of the St. George.
Island Lighthouse.

Eclipsing the Sun
-< -' JL C ^ -! ';*-, -!K

As temperatures rise, the wind becomes
gentle breeze from the south and the
-dpys a little bit longer, an annual spring
ritual has arrived.
That is the carving like cheese done
Sby the Legislature when it comes to the
-Sunshine Law.
-. The Legislature has been at work for
eeks trying to chip away at the founda-
tion of the laws aimed at ensuring open
meetings and government.
State lawmakers convene for at least
60 days every year and spend an inordi-
nate amount of that time and taxpayer
money at work attempting to carve out
Sekceptions to the state's law requiring
open meetings and records.
This year's pre-session report from
the First Amendment Foundation, a non-
profit watchdog group, ,runs eight pages,
front and back.
There are even 10 "shell" bills filed by
deadline to ensure, that some exemption
will be championed once that lawmaker
determines which direction to attack.
This makes it pretty much a sample
snapshot of how state lawmakers wile
away some a significant chunk of each
year, perpetually shaving and molding the
angle by which the public views govern-
See this list year after year and one
can begin to wonder just how much of the
Sunshine Laws actually remain intact.
The Sunshine Laws were once, and in
some corners remain, a model for provid-
ing the people, the taxpayers, the media,
thorough review of government at work.
Jt was the transparency which too much
governing lacked.
Now one tour of the marbled fourth
floor of the Capitol during the session and
the weeks leading up to it can attest that
in too many instances open government
is something Dorothy encountered in the
aftermath of that Kansas twister.
With so much at stake these days in
this region, though, this sort of mind-set
inmust become anathema for voters and
SAnd there is enough to give us pause.
Too many meetings are peppered with
Selected officials saying that any concerns
or questions they had about what was
'pr was riot on the agenda "had been
-answered" prior to the meeting.
Too many meetings lack the construc-
L tive dialogue on important and key issues
to the present and future, dialogue which
., should be coming in public from those who
-!: have been voted to represent the public.
Too many meetings have the feel of
an anti-climax, the final votes contained
within nothing more than an affirmation
of discussions individual officials have had
with staff, with those more involved with
K dav-to-dav operations or, maybe most
importantly, individual constituents.
Too many meetings have the feel of
*' occurring beyond the finish line.
We agree with city councilman John
;'. Reeves who said in a workshop this week
. that he would rather air significant de"i-
sions in a regular, or, we would presume,
'" special meeting that have commissioners

polled about their opinions individually.
When the issues involve taxpayer dol-
lars and this one, by chance, did there
is no reason the taxpayers, the public,
should not be provided insight into the
decisions of its officials.
The argument goes both ways.
The more the public understands gov-
ernment, the more informed the decisions
at the ballot box, a potential reward for
both officials and future candidates
- and the public.
Unfortunately, too much pixie dust,
apparently, falls from Tallahassee, we
would argue.
Is it not reasonable to wonder how
some officials can arrive, as a group, at
diametrically opposed views on a single
issue along the same timetable which lasts
less than a mere two weeks?
That occurred at least three times on
the County Commission in the past year,
the last coming with the machinations
surrounding who would hold the keys to
the jail.
We would easily argue that beyond the
fact that commissioners, other than Bill
Williams, who rightly warned his .peers
repeatedly about their actions, understood
so little about jail operations when they
moved to take it over, the worrying part
of that whole fiasco was the reversal two
weeks later.
Commissioners took over the jail and
gave it back with, when all the hot air was
boiled out, too little of what could be con-
strued as constructive debate.
The Sheriff evened arrived at the first
meeting armed with a letter of response,
typed in advance.
How do four individuals arrive at one
conclusion one week and the opposite two
weeks later? What does that say about the
leadership and decision-making involved?
What it says can be found in the dic-
tionary under "disheartening."
But the county is hardly the only gov-
erning body to be taken to task; County
Commissioners simply too consistently
provide the most vivid and oft times
comic-if-it-wasn't-true moments.
All this is more worrisome, we would,
argue, because there is too often a mute
button greeting the public. or at least a
public when 'the topic of conversation is
found to be unpleasant, be it animal con-
trol, or garbage along the streets or how-
government spends the money rolling into
its coffers.
And this all might.have been fine
when budgets were in the low millions.
when growth was something the basket-
ball coach was hoping for from his players-
year to year.
But budgets bulge annually as taxes,
soar, gravity is being applied to infrastruc-:
ture around the county and its municipal-
ities as development is poised to leap from
the .drawing board and decisions ripple
beyond next week, next month, next year,
in some cases this decade.;
And the sad fact is that in a 'state
which touts its sunshine, the public is too0
often left 'in the dark.

We're in Good Hands?

Governor Jeb Bush
announced a few days back
that insurance rates in
Florida were going up. Again.
He mentioned the eight hur-
ricanes in the last couple of
years as the main culprit for
this increase. I am certainly
not knowledgeable enough
in the insurance business
to take exception to, or even
comment on, regulations
that govern what those com-
panies can charge.
But I hearken back to
a few insurance salesmen I
have known over the years
and a few questions just
naturally come to mind.
Mr. Willis McAlheny
would sit in the big chair out
on the front porch and say,
"Lonnie, you've got to have
insurance. You just can't
take a chance where your
family is concerned!".
My Father would stare
down toward the cotton. He
wouldn't say nothing for
what seemed like an eter-
nity. 'Course, I couldn't have
been more than six or seven.
Eternity wasn't but about
ten seconds back in those
days! And I had no idea
that Dad was calculating the

all else... against the price
Mr. Willis was quoting for
the cotton insurance.
Mr. McAlheny was an
all purpose insurance agent.
He had policies for your car,
house, boat, wagon. tractor,
mule or day workers. I don't
really remember what all
Dad had insured besides the
house. But Willis showed up
like clock work every month
to collect money from us.
Dad questioned the price,
of the cotton policy. "Lonnie,
that is the best I can do!
These prices are set. by the
company. You know that if
I could give: you a better.
deal. I would. You just don't
need to take a chance. You

it was mentioned during a

meeting that "education" was

You would have thought the

the price up. But they had a
bumper cotton crop in Texas
and Oklahoma and Kansas
and buyers in Memphis just
shifted their operations to
the west.

Dad's gaze moved back
toward the cotton. "What I
don't remember is the last
time the insurance company
took a chancel"

that insurance company

owned the world famous
Grand Ole Opry; every exec-
utive up on the top floor
drove a big, 'new Cadillac;
and every Monday morning
that insurance company had
nine million dollars collected
from their debit insurance

invest in something.,
Nine million dollars! And
this was 19681 I was 21
years old. I didn't believe
there was that much money
in the world! And they had to
try to find a way to "get it in
something so it would make
them more money" each and
every Monday morning that
rolled around. It was really a
"problem" for the company.

Nelson's advice for
people along the coast: look
at historical facts, talk to
locals, talk to the emergency

"basically do your homework
before you build or buy."
Nelson also cautioned
homeowners to look at their
current landscaping and
to plan carefully for future
"Make sure there are no
trees in your yard that will lay
down on your house during a
storm," he said.
For residents of northern
Gulf County, Nelson said
to remember the dangers of
inland flooding.
Statistics show that
more people die from storm
surge and flooding during
hurricanes than from wind.
But he also reminded
them that they are not
immune to hurricane force

"From the coast, it's only
16 miles as the crow flies to

"Regardless of what people in

Walker attends Conference in D.C.

Brent Austin Walker, a
sophomore at Wewahitchka
High School, attended the
National Young Leaders
Conference in Washington,
D.C. Jan. 24 29.
The National Young
Leaders Conference is the
premier leadership program
in the country designed for
the nation's best and bright-
est high school scholars.
Brent was nominated by
his teachers for this honor
due to his outstanding lead-
ership potential, academic
achievements, special talents,

strength and character.
For six intense days,
Brent and 350 other young
scholars from all over the
country were challenged,
motivated and inspired. All
students took active roles in
Government simulations such
as the "Model Congress", "If I
Were President", and "Testing
The Constitution".
Other exciting highlights
of the trip were touring impor-
tant historic national monu-
ments and museums.
Brent's summary... "It
was the chance of a lifetime

and I feel that the entire
experience, including making
new friends from all over the
country, will help prepare me
for college life".
Brent's proud parents are
Joe and Alisa Walker. His
loving grandparents are John
and Norma Jean Burnette of
Wilkesboro, NC and Joe and
Faye Walker of Eufaula, AL.
Brent would like to thank
all of his family for their sup-
port and encouragement. He
would also like to thank his
sponsors and friends who

The last nine week grad-

students may not realize it,
but to the teachers this is the
"home stretch" before sum-
mer. Report cards will go
home on Tuesday, March 28
following Spring Break.
By the time you read this
article, we will be in the midst
of Spirit Week. Thanks to
Mrs. Carla McGhee and the
others for planning all of the
activities and daily themes.
Thanks to Mrs. Sheila Parker
for heading up Friday's Field
Day on Friday the 17th.
Also, please don't forget,
that Friday, March 17th (Field
Day) is a half-day of school.
Pre-school students will be
dismissed at 11:00 a.m.,
grades 1-4 will be dismissed

at 11:15 a.m., and grades
5-12 will be dismissed at
11:30 a.m. There will be no
extended day on Friday or
during Spring Break. Please
call the school if you have
any questions
We are now taking stu-
dent applications and regis-
trations for the 2006-2007
school year. As always,
the pre-school fills up fast.
This year we will have only
one class for each of the
pre-school and elementary
grades. Remember, if your
child's birthday is before
Sept. 1, he may be included
in that particular age grade if
there is room. There will no
longer be a K-2 class at FCS
as of this year.
The FCS School Board
met last month to approve
next year's tuition rates and
fees. The recommendation
was to increase only the reg-
istration cost. Supply fees
were also increased, but
those fees are based on the
cost of paper, printing, pro-
cessing, and shipping items
beyond our control. For the
first time in 5 or 6 years,
the cost of tuition was not
increased!! For that we are
grateful. Thank you, par-
ents, for your support in our
efforts to keep FCS tuition as
low as possible.
A number of faculty and
staff have been sick as have
many students. We hope
that some time off from the
rigors of the classroom will
help and that Spring Br-eak
next week will provide .the
needed time to' recuperate.

By: Katie Hoffman
As the Class of 2006
moves closer and closer to
the big day in May, I can't
help but look back and trea-
sure all of the memories I've
shared with my classmates.
From spending endless sum-
mer days on the beach in front
of Toucan's to sitting behind
left field at every home base-
ball game, I'll never forget
the fun I've had while being
a Tiger Shark at Port St. Joe
High School.

One major expense area for the dentist that the patient will never observe from the dental chair, is
the cost of the dental laboratory %ork. This includes the cost to the dentist for crowns, onlays, inlays,'
bridges, partial dentures, complete dentures, and so on.
These costs can be a very substantial part of the dentist's total bill. The better the quality of the
laboratory's work. the more they will charge for it. Laboratory work, like dental work, is an art. J your
dentist has higher fees for his work, he's probably using one of the better dental laboratories in your area,
in order to get a superior product for you.
Ask your dentist about this. Find out how he feels about different dental laboratories. If he says
the/yre all the same, be suspicious. If he takes great pride in the one he works with, he's probably using
the highest standard for the work he's placing in your mouth. Be thankful you have chosen your dentist

In other business taken
up during Monday's meeting:
Commissioners turned
down Superintendent of
Schools Tim Wilder's request
to waive utility deposits for
beginning teachers.
Wilder, with the school
system facing a teacher
crunch, has made a similar
request of the City of Port St.
Joe where officials said they
would examine a possible
payment or installment plan
for teachers while not waiving
deposit fees.
The problem for
Wewahitchka, Minchew said,
is that certain conditions
under which bonds were
issued for water and sewer
infrastructure in the city
make it impossible for the
city to grant the request.

cussed subdivisions popping

First Runner up in 2006 Florida Junior Miss Program

The overall Program

lege specific scholarships on

tion to the Millennium Award

board for four years total-
ing $52,OQO, and other priz-
es during the 2006 Florida
Junior Miss State Program.
Geoghagan, a senior at
Port St. Joe High School, is an
outstanding young lady who
represented the Gulf County
community well as one of
nine young ladies narrowed
down from over 60 candidates
across the state of Florida
who competed for. the title of
2006 Florida's Junior Miss.
The mission ofAmerica's
Junior Miss is to emphasize
education by providing .schol-
arship opportunities to out-
standing, college-bound high
school senior girls, and to
encourage personal devel-
opment in all young people
through the Be Your Best Self
outreach program.
On Saturday March 4, in
an array of red., white and
blue. nine Florida Junior
Miss finalists, a board of
directors, state representa-
tives. special guests. sponsors
and hundreds of fans paid
tribute to the men and women
who protect and serve our
great nation so faithfully in
the armed forces of the United
States of America. Patriotism
was defined as the "love for
or devotion to one's country.'
As Amnericans we do so much
in the name of patriotism.
Our country is a source of
pride and admiration: the flag
with its fifty stars and thirteen
stripes, a vestige of our lo\al-
ty. We stand taller in its pres-
ence. When times are prosper-
ous, we revel in her strength
and power. We flourish under
her protection. When times
are hard and our country is

Geoghagan being awarded from Troy State Scholarship by
Board member Randy Newman of GTCom

faced with adversity, we stand
together protecting her name,
willing to give everything for
her survival,
America's Junior Miss has
shaped the future for thou-
sands of young women by
taking them to a new level of
personal growth and allowing
them to pursue thetr educa-
tional dreams. It is impor-
tant that we encourage young
women evervwhere to pursue
their dreams, to live lives of
integrity and compassion by
being the best they can be
academically, athletically.
artistically and socially.
Based on her outstanding
scholastic achievement. Kelly
Geoghagan was awarded the
M illennium Award from Troy
University of Troy. Alabama.

where she will pursue a degree
in business management.
As the 2006 first runner
up Kelly was offered her choice
of $13.800 in college-specific

scholarships, a $750.00 cash
scholarship, a beautiful. long
stem' rose arm bouquet, and
plaque. '
Additional awards received
by, Geoghagan were:
The Spirit of .-unio,,r Miss,
a special award that is 5:%,ted
on bv the contestants them-
selves. The contestaIts vote for
the girl they feel best embodies
the Spirit of the Junior Miss.
The award includes her choice
of $11.SO0 in couege-specific
scholarships,. a $250 cash
scholarship and a plaque.

The Self Expression
Award winner is beine offered
her choice of $13.500 in col-
lege-specific scholarships. a
$250.00 cash scholarship and
plaque. The self expression
award represents each contes-
tant's ability to demonstrate
presence, composure, poise
and grace. America s Junior

Miss encourages young women
to use the power of thought.
.and opinion. In addition to
stage presence, each contes-
tant was required to give an
on-stage response to a ques-
tion given to all candidates.
Kelly demonstrated compo-
sure and grace in answering
the question: As Americans
w.e have the right not only to
have an opinion but also to
voice it. Our country calls that
"freedom of speech", Junior
Miss calls it "Self-Expression".
The following portion of the
program is to afford the girls
the opportunity to show the
audience as well as the judg-
es a glimpse of their ability
to think independently and
speak freely. \We ,often hear
the expression "I'm proud
to be an American". What do
you, as an American have to
be proud of?
Although Geoghagan did
not win first honors in Talent
and Fitness, she represented
the categories well.
Each contestant is, given
the opportunity to showcase
her talent in any style she
chooses and is strictly.limited
, to 90 seconds and provides
an insight into each contes-
tant's performance skills. The

judges evaluate the talent per-
formed on stage during the 90
seconds based on originality,
technique, appropriateness of
selection and costume, stage
presence and overall perfor-
mance. The talent category
will consist of 25% of the over-
all score.
Kelly has always loved
music. She's had classical
vocal training for. the past
three years and enjoys singing
in her church's ensembles.
Kelly played the lead role in the
'musical theatre productions.
of "Christmas in Whoville" and
"Snow White and the Seven
Dwarfs". During the Talent
competition Kelly sang "Think
of Me" from the longest run-
ning hit Broadway musical
"Phantom of the Opera".
America's Junior Miss
Finalists must be extreme-
ly dedicated to obtain the
strength, stamina and agility
to complete a very challenging
physical fitness routine that
demonstrates the importance
of good health and physical
well-being. The nine-minute
fitness routine challenges
the girls with a combination
of aerobics, step aerobics,
Pilates, kickboxing and floor

The scoring system of
America's Junior Miss is
designed to evaluate each
contestant individually in
keeping with the Junior Miss
theme "Be Your Best Self'.
The contestants are scored in
five different categories with
each category having its own
value by percentage. Physical
fitness 15%, Talent 25%, Self-
Expression 15%, Interview
25%, and Scholastic achieve-
ment 20%. Each contestant
was previously evaluated ini
the scholastic achievement!
category by a separate panel
of judges. The contestants
were also evaluated in the1
interview category prior to this
evening's remaining three, on-i
stage performances. 1
In an array of red, whiteI
and blue patriotism, based
on this years "All American
Girl Theme", the nine young
ladies from across the state
of Florida arrived in Perry,
Florida, for an orientation
luncheon sponsored by Main
Street Caf6. At this luncheon[
the young ladies said goodI
bye to their natural parents;
and cell phones, and met their
host parents for a week of lots
of practice and special events!

Karl Marx is sent to earth for one hour to make his case.
Bureaucracies are the same in heaven as on earth though,

Local Family Doctor Celebrates National Membership ..

Owen D. Oksanen, M..D.,
Port St. Joe, has completed
continuing medical
education requirements
to retain membership in
the American Academy of
Family Physicians (AAFP),
the only medical specialty
organization devoted solely
to primary care.
As members of the
AAFP, family physicians are
required to complete 150
hours of continued medical
education every three
years. This ensures that
family physicians remain
educated on the most up-to-
date medical technologies,
research and techniques.
Family physicians, like
other medical specialists,
complete an extensive three-
year residency program in

the specialty after graduating
from medical school. As
part of their residency,
family physicians receive
training in six major medical
areas: pediatric, obstetrics
and gynecology, internal
medicine, psychiatry and
neurology, surgery and
community medicine. They
also receive instruction in
many other areas including
geriatrics, emergency
medicine, ophthalmology,
radiology, sports medicine
and urology. As a result,
family physicians are the only
medical specialists qualified
to provide comprehensive
health care for all ages.
People choose family
physicians because they are
trained to treat a broad range
of illnesses from coughs,

Exercise Lessens the Impact of Diabetes

this disease. In her new
DIABETES" Erin O'Driscoll,
RN, MA, helps people with
diabetes take control of their
bodies and gain strength,
courage, and confidence.
Over 18 million Americans
have some form of diabetes.
In addition to diet and insu-
lin regulation, there is one
thing every diabetic can do to
take control of their health:
Study after study has
shown that exercise can
lower blood glucose, blood
pressure, and cholesterol.
It reduces the risk of heart
disease and stroke, relieves
stress, and strengthens the
heart, muscles, and bones.
Exercise also helps insulin
work better, improves blood
circulation, and keeps joints
There are several differ-
ent modes of exercises that
are important to diabetics -
aerobics, strength training,
warm-ups, and cool-downs.
Aerobic exercise strength-
ens the heart and keeps the
exerciser's muscles warms.
Strength training builds
endurance,. while improv-
ing both joints and muscles.
Warm-ups and cool-downs
are essential for the safety
of the exerciser. EXERCISES
FOR DIABETES gi ves various
examples of each with easy to



follow pictures and detailed
Here are some .of the
exercises O'Driscoll recom-
Aerobic Tap Backs: Start
with your feet together. Tap
your right foot to the back
and return in to center, tap
your left foot back and return
it to center. Alternate tapping
the right and left foot to the
back as you press both arms
to the front.
Lateral Raises for
Strength: Start with your
arms at your sides and your
feet shoulder length apart.
Stand tall with your head in
line with your spine. Keep
your, hips neutral. Raise your
_right arm to the side, up to
shoulder height, pause at the
top, and slowly lower the arm
back down to your side.
Repeat with the left arm.
Alternate lifting and lowering
the right and left arms.
Warm-up or cool-down
with a back rotation stretch:
Lie on your back and slowly
drop both knees to the right
side. Let your arms reach
out to .the opposite side and
turn your head in the direc-
tion of your arms. Holding
the stretch, slowly bring your
knees to the center and then
gradually drop them to the
opposite side. Again, the
arms reach out in the oppo-,
site direction.

The Long Journey...The Bible says, "What we see will last only a short time, but what we
cannot see will last forever," 2 Cor 4:18. God never said that our journey would be easy, but he
has told us that our arrival would be worthwhile.
For some of you the journey is long & weary. Burdens have been heavy & very hard to
carry. But, your persistence & perseverence will pay off. Though storms have waged, loved
ones have been lost, & dreams have disappeared your heavenly Father will see you home!
Praise God!!

Without it, you'll not do much witnessing, friend.
Faith in God comes through the Son.
After you're saved, your service has begun.
He calls folks to big jobs and also to small.
To those He calls, He equips them all.
Many folks don't want to listen anymore.
To talk to God, they think you're a bore.
To serve God in the world in which we live,
You have to be committed and ready to give.
You need a thick skin because you'll be cut down.
Smile when you don't mean it, get rid of a frown.
Help folks daily, read the word and pray.
If you can do this, you're serving God today.
- Billy Johnson


Interment will follow at Forest
Hill Cemetery.

God and to analyze whether
he is truly using'the remain-
ing time to do what is good
from God's standpoint.
A featured speaker will be
Richard Allen, a traveling rep-
resentative of the Watchtower
Bible and Tract Society. He
will give the Public Talk enti-
tled, "Are You Conquering the
Wicked One?" on Sunday.
Allen brings out that because
the world is influenced by
Satan it has a twisted view of

of Health (DOH) recognizes
March as National Colorectal
Cancer Awareness Month.
The entire month of March
is highlighted to educate and
increase awareness for all
Floridians, age 50 and older.
"All cancers are poten-

However, colorectal cancer
can be curable when it is
diagnosed early on," said
DOH Secretary M. Rony
Francois, M.D., M.S.P.H.,
Ph.D. "It is recommended
that all Floridians, over the
age of 50, get regularly-
screened in order to detect
the problem early."

commonly known as colon
cancer, develops in the
colon .or rectum and is the
third most diagnosed cancer
in both men, and women.

2006, there will be a total
of 148,610 new ,diagnosed
cases of colorectal cancer
(106,680 colon and 41,930
rectum) and 55,170 deaths."
According to Florida's
statewide cancer registry,
there were a total of 9,878
.new cases diagnosed in
2004, which is:the most cur-
rent data year available. Men
and women are affected by
colorectal cancer every day,
but with timely screening
and treatment, it is curable.

T.D.C. Director Pickett dis-
cussed meetings that have been
held by the Beach Advisory
Committee regarding beach res-
toration from the Stumphole to
the State Park, and presented a
slide presentation of the areas
affected and development of a
Municipal Service Taxing Unit
to fund the restoration. Mike
Dombrowski, of MRD & Asso-
ciates, discussed the feasibility
study that his company is pre-
paring, options for restoration,
cost estimates and a proposed
timeline on the project. Upon
inquiry by Chairman Peters,
T.D.C. Director Pickett reported
that it will affect both sides of
the peninsula, but there would
be two separate M.S.T.U.s, with
different formulas used for the
Bay side and for the Gulf side.
Upon call for public comment,
the following individuals ap-
Marsha Henry discussed ad-
ditional taxing on an area that is
already paying 23% of the ad va-
lorem taxes, and requested that
this issue be tabled until further
research can be done.
Upon inquiry by Chairman
Peters, County Attorney McFar-
land stated that the M.S.T.U.
is a taxing unit, and discussed
the ordinance process that must
be followed to implement it. He
also stated that pledging the
M.S.T.U. to pay for a revenue
bond would have to be approved
by referendum in March, 2006.
Upon inquiry by Commis-
sioner Traylor, Mr. Dombrowski
stated that there was no erosion
on the Bay side. Commissioner
Traylor discussed that it would
be unfair for the property own-
ers on the Bay side to have to
pay the additional tax.
Jim McClure discussed that
residents of the Bay side and
tourists who are renting houses
on the Bay side walk across his
property, park in his yard, etc.
to access the beach on the Gulf
side, which further destroys the
dunes on his property.
Dan Henry discussed that
the residents of the Bay side
care about the residents on the
Gulf side, but people from the
entire County use the beach.
He stated that the real issue is
the additional tax and where the
"line" determining who pays the
tax was drawn.
Gerald Buntyn discussed
that he has property on the Bay
side, and he feels that the beach
is an asset to the County and
they should fund this project
(not the property owners at the
Edward Wood stated that
this is not a good plan, and it
will not work at the peninsula.
He discussed they would remove
the sand (dredge) from the Cape,
.'I' -7: ---- 5.,K

and there has already been a
huge loss of sand in that area.
He requested that the Board not
approve this re-nourishment
plan. ,
Ron Westmark reported that
he lives on the Bay side, and dis-
cussed the fairness in this mat-
ter. He stated that no one in his
neighborhood even knew about
a Beach Advisory Committee
(B.A.C.) or their meetings, and
requested that the Board make
a decision regarding this mat-
ter tonight. He stated that if the
residents on the Gulf side want
this, they should pay for it .
Linda W.:..:. Jrqu-ed'about
who would :.,e .:,r- ir', issue
and, after r'..pi t f C. Di-
rector Pickett, she stated that.
only the registered voters (not
all property owners) in that area
would be allowed to vote on this
issue. She stated that it is un-
fair for a small number of voters
to make the decision that will
affect all property owners, and
stated that since it is a public
beach, the entire County should
support the sustenance of it.
Doug Kent stated that he
does not live on the Cape, but he
is very concerned about conser-
vation of the Bay, and he. feels
that if something is not done in
the Stumphole area, the ecosys-
tem of the Bay will change.
Steve Edgar stated that he
lives on the Cape, and he feels
that we do need beach re-nour-
ishment, but he feels that the
entire County should fund this
restoration because they benefit
from the tax base.
Dianne Guess reported that
she has not received a letter
that this project has been in
the works or what it would cost
the taxpayers. T.D.C. Director
Pickett reported that this began
when the County received fund-
ing for the feasibility study, the
initial meeting was advertised
and held at the Cape, and that
she has over 100 letters of sup-
port for this program. After
discussion that the tax amount.-
. should be available in February,
Mrs. Guess requested that the
Board tabled this matter until
actual figures are received.
T.D.C. Director Pickett stat-
ed that the funding mechanism
must be in place by December
31st, but it would still have to
be approved by referendum in
March for the program to pro-
ceed. Commissioner Traylor
discussed that he believes that
the individuals who will benefit
from this should be the ones
who fund it.
Charlie Weston discussed
the development of the B.A.C.,
Sand that this issue was, dis-
cussed at several County. Com-
mission meetings. BHe also
stated that this is a plan for a
long-term solution, and every-
one should 'work together to
accomplish it (State, Property
Owners & County).
Upon discussion by John
Schweizer, Chairman Peters
requested that the Board table
this issue until the Beach Re-
nourishment issue it complete.
Les Heard discussed meet-
ing with representatives from
the areas who have success-
fully implemented this program
in their counties to obtain more
information about how it works
before a final decision is made.
He stated that our beach is vital
and, if you lose it, you lose the
tax value that it represents.
Woody Guess discussed
that beach restoration is defi-
nitely needed, but the lines re-
garding who will pay for it need
to be re-addressed, because it is
hot fair.
Mary Ann Conroy discussed
there are two different M.S.T.U.s
being proposed, so that one can
be adopted for the Gulf side and
one for the Bay side.
Edward Wood discussed
where the sand will come from
that is placed on the beach (to
be dredged from outside of the

Guf ou tyBo rd o C unyom ipoo inut),adrqeste]ha h

,point), and requested that the
Board vote tonight to oppose
this project.
Raymond Wood discussed
that Edward Wood got up twice
to speak, and he should be al-
lowed to come back twice (all
people should be treated equal-
Rich Brenner discussed
that the beaches and the river
are County assets, and the
County should support protect-
ing them. He stated that ifthe
County loses additional tax base
at the Cape, the funds will have
to be made up by the rest of the
County. He requested that the
Board research this matter and
look at the Cape as an asset.
Commissioner Williams dis-
cussed that the Cape is a great
asset, but he feels that this
should be addressed/ County-
wide. He stated that the Board
should gather additional infor-
mation, hold town hall meetings,
look at financial data and meet
with the B.A.C. regarding this
issue because there could be a
huge economical impact if this
opportunity passes by. Com-
missioner Traylor discussed the
unfairness in the way that the
M.S.T.U. is currently being pro-
posed, stating that there needs
to be another option.
-Betty Weston requested that
the Board allow the B.A.C. to
make their entire presentation,
after all research is done, before
making a decision.
Chairman Peters discussed
the possibility of the County
funding this project (during
budget time) in order to be
fair. He then passed' the Chair
to Vice Chairman McLemore
and motioned to terminate the
M.S.T.U. process immediately.
Commissioner Traylor seconded
the motion, and it passed unan-
imously. Chairman McLemore
returned the Chair to Commis-
sioner Peters.
John Schweizer, of Beacon
Hill, appeared before the Board
to discuss that he will lease
his property to the County (for
beach access) for the amount
of the property taxes. Com-
missioner Williams motioned
to enter into a lease with Mr.
Schweizer to use his property as
beach access, with the County's
annual payment to Mr. Schweiz-
er being the amount of property
taxes he pays on that parcel.
Commissioner McLemore sec-
onded the motion, and it passed
Upon inquiry by Raymond
Wood, of Highland View, about
hours of operation being placed
on the dump trucks traveling on
Red Fish Street, Commissioner
Williams discussed the time in-
volved in the ordinance process.
Upon discussion that the trucks
will no longer use the roads ef-
fective January 27, 2006, Com-
missioner Williams motioned
to send a letter to The St. Joe
Company requesting that all of
their vendors only use the road
between the hours of 8:00 a.m.-
5:30 p.m., E.T. Commissioner'
McLemore seconded the motion,
and it passed unanimously.
Upon discussion by Com-
missioner Traylor that the Board
needs to give some direction to
T.D.C. Director Pickett and the
B.A.C. about the beach renova-
tion issue, Commissioner Wil-
liams and members of the Board
discussed contacting surround-
ing counties who have imple-
mented the M.S.T.U. to receive
additional information.
There being no further busi-

ness a'nd upon motion by Com-
missioner Williams, the meeting
did then adjourn at 8:35 p.m.,

The red carpet was laid

ing the many special events.
Upon their first night in Perry,

Sunday evening after

by and held at Rose Head
Monday the girls once
again practiced all day but

Tuesday, the young ladies

Tuesday night the young

Wednesday The young
ladies made a trip to Doctors
Memorial Hospital for a
facility tour -before attend-
ing the public picnic in the
park sponsored by Taylor
Cookers and Perry Chamber
of Commerce.
The young ladies then
headed to Perry Elementary

School where they taught a

our local 3rd, 4th 'and 5th
graders. They were judged
on their presentations for the
opportunity to win scholar-

Within minutes of saying
good bye to their parents for
a week, the state finalists had
an opportunity to step into the
shoes of the judges. They were
handed scoring sheets and
placed into the judge's seat
as they had become the 2006
Florida Junior Miss Downtown

of Steinhatchee then they
headed off to a Pajama Party
and Movie Night.
Then they moved into a
long two days of dress rehears-
On the day of competi-
tion ,after all of the interviews
were complete, the young
ladies had a chance to relax
for a tea party sponsored by
Sister's Mercantile.
The week ended in a

Marquee and Window Contest
They scored all down town
participants on their windows
on the following criteria:
The Window officially
welcomes the Junior Miss
Contestants to Perry /
Taylor County.
The Window honors out-
standing high school senior
girls. The Window is deco-
rated in the spirited patriotic
red, white and blue theme.
The girls found it tough
to step into the judging mode,
but. had a great time explor-
ing downtown Perry. It was
even overheard as the contes-
tants stated something that
the judges themselves faced
during the program, It is
too tough to choose a winner,
they are all so wonderful in
their own ways".
The actual competition is
only the end result of a lot
of hard work, dedication and
commitment of the finalists.
Preparation for the program
started well before the week
in Perry. In order for these
young ladies to have become
who they are and to pos-
sess the attributes of a Junior
Miss, the preparation had to
begin many years ago. Many
dedicated :years went into
preparing the young ladies
for the competition. A video

parents,, grandparents, fam-
ily and friends of the beauti-.
