USA Today Gives
Gulf Co. Schools
On College Incentive Program
Gulf County finally received
some positive press from a major
daily newspaper this week, when
USA TODAY featured the good
things which are coming out of
its college incentive plan for high
Accustomed to negative-and
inaccurate-publicity about the
plan and other happenings in the
county, directors of the duPont
Plan here in Gulf County were
pleasantly surprised when the
national newspaper used the Gulf
County plan as a positive show-
case as to what could be done on
a national level. The newspaper
was doing an in-depth article on
encouraging kids to have more
interest in planning a college ed-
ucation after their high school
The story, titled, "Florida Pro-
gram Gives Kids A New Outlook,"
pointed out how the plan is work-
ing in Gulf County. It said that
two years ago, 50 of 137 graduat-
ing seniors went on to college.
Last year, it was 83 of 157.
The article pointed out how
both Port St. Joe and Wewahitch-
ka High Schools are aiming their
guidance departments toward as-
sisting students to achieve all
they can with the goal of earning
more aid to attend college and ac-
ceptance by a school of higher
learning with an adequate grade
The writer-Pat Ordovensky-
-pointed out how Carol Cathey,
guidance counsellor at Port St.
Joe High School has initiated and
is teaching a course on preparing
students for the Scholastic Apti-
tude Test [SAT]. 'We're offering it
for our students," Cathey said.
In Wewahitchka Sharon Ga-
skin received good press for her
work in convincing students that

The program, introduced in
Gulf County two years ago by Da-
vid Eardman, dean of admissions
at Rollins College in winter Park
and Herbert Daltonm, his ocun-
terpart at Middlebury College in
Vermont, has been. adopted by
the Gulf County school system.
The plan is partially financed
by the Jessie Ball DuPont Foun-
dation. Gulf County was picked
as a pilot for the plan because of
the enthusiasm of Superinten-
dent of Education Walter Wilder,
according to the USA TODAY ar-
"It's nice to be noticed in a
positive way," Helen Ramsey, as-
sistant principal at Port St. Joe
High School, and a pioneer leader
in the project in the local system,
said this week.
Gulf County was pictured as
having a program in operation
which deserves to be copied by
other school systems in the na-
tion to encourage better educa-
tion in high school as well as en-
courage students to begin
thinking about making college
plans early in their school career.

A system to serve the com-
munity of Mexico Beach would
cost approximately $3.5 million
and would handle 350,000 gal-

pressed in the vein of an availa-

Solid Waste Continues to be a Trashy
Problem, with County Commissioners
Two Bonding Firms Present Finance Plans to County Board
Just because the Gulf County Com-
mission said they were getting out of
the garbage collection business and
closed their 14 collection points
throughout the county, the., are still
not necessarily rid of the problem they
were trying to get rid of.
People are still dumping solid waste
at the collection sites at a heavy rate,
according to Sam Graves, who directs
the solid waste program for the county.
Graves said 'They have even run over
our signs which we've put up, notifying
people the dump is closed."
The County has reacted to the situa-
tion by making Swa-Cars available at
the Wewahitchka compactor site until
the compactor is completed; putting on
a couple of monitors to tour the county
and discourage indiscriminate dump-
ing; require the new collection firm to
better publicize the fact he has a collec-
tion service available throughout the
county for people to retain and started
a search for a parcel of land on which to
build a landfill for the future.
On receiving reports that dumping
at the former sites has not stopped,
even though the collection trailers have
been removed, the Commission decided
to try and work out a system which
would make dumping of solid waste
more efficient and convenient.

It's A Trend
What happened to those ecologists, scientists and nutrition-
ists who were telling us just a few years ago that the seas of
planet Earth could feed the whole world, giving everyone a suf-
ficiency of protiens and other food elements necessary to main-
taining a healthy life?
We remember them like it was yesterday, telling us the sea
was overflowing with food material for human beings. All we
had to do was to harvest it and distribute it to all the hungry
masses around the globe and our hunger problem would be
solved in short order.
Do you remember this claim?
We believed it then and we believe it now. We believe it so
strongly that we feel the only thing which stands between the
sea solving our world problem and those needing the nourish-
ment it is capable of producing, is the Florida Marine Commis-
The Commission, made up of eggheads who have no work-
ing knowledge of harvesting the sea or anything else, now has
our state in the position where it is driving a formerly healthy
industry out of business, as well as depriving a hungry element
of humanity of food they can afford.
Our people can no longer catch the plentiful redfish, Span-
ish mackerel, king mackerel, shrimp, and other food species
because of having their hands tied behind their back. In the
meantime, foreign interests are raking these same so-called
"endangered" species in by the ton and unloading them on
American markets at prices American fishermen would like to
be allowed to meet.
What are these foreign fishers doing to this resource? Pre-
serving it? How are we preserving it, if we merely stop our own
fishermen from producing and make up their shortfall in our
growing demand for product, by buying from foreign produc-
ers? If the species is threatened, it's just as depleted when a for-
eign boat catches it as it is if an American boat catches it.
Now, after all these crazy regulations-including the salt
water fishing license-have taken their toll in other areas, we're
facing a regulation of the lowly mullet. Perhaps the most plenti-
ful fish on this part of the planet, considered a trash fish in
many areas, but a delicacy here, could well disappear from lo-
cal fish fries and dinner tables, if the trend continues.
We pay more for the privilege of catching a needed food re-
source, but are restricted more and more every day in its har-
vest. If the permits keep increasing, we suppose the curve will
meet somewhere down the road and we'll not be able to keep
any seafood we might catch. The trend is headed in that direc-

newspapers, wrappings, etc., to the collection point on Niles
Road. But, we have collection service from the City of Port St.
Joe and it really wasn't that much of an inconvenience.
What we're wanting to know is how did the garbage go for
those who do not have city collection service. We'll wager that
it didn't go very well, or else it went out in the woods, at the
end of some small dirt road.
However it went, it was probably an inconvenience, at best.
We're also willing to wager the county commissioners had
more than a few calls asking what they could do with their gar-
bage. We wonder how many had people bring the sacked gar-
bage to their house and place it on the porch or on the lawn?
That has happened in other places where garbage disposal was
made to be a problem.

We just hope you won't be bashful about calling your
county commissioner about this garbage situation. We definite-
ly don't want our county to get in the shape it was a few years
ago. We still believe we will have problems until the county gets
in the collection business and makes subscription mandatory-
even though the commissioners don't want to do it. We don't
want fines from DER, either.

ETAOIN SHRDLU By: Wesley R. Ramsey I
FRENCHIE AND I took an-
other trip to the lithotripsy ma-
chine at University of Alabama
Hospital in Birmingham last
Wednesday afternoon, and had
all kind of adventures this trip.
This second round on the
lithotripsy busted her gallstone
up in three small clusters of frag-
ments and put it in position to be
successfully treated by medica-
tion. The last time only shattered
the stone, but it came back to-
gether during the intervening
month. The doctors say, that in
all likelihood, this final trip did
her stone in good.
This was good news for Fren-
chie, but this is such a ho-hum
treatment, it really wasn't the
highlight of the trip.
Actually, I got material for
several different articles, but I'm
going to condense them all into
one, just to keep from boring you
THURSDAY NIGHT the Roll-
ing Stones were in Legion Field in
That's a short statement, but
our motel was right in the middle
of the University of Alabama com-
plex in Birmingham, and I believe
every young man and woman of
college age in Georgia, Alabama
and north Florida, gathered in
the neighborhood of our motel to
catch a shuttle bus for Legion
Field and the concert.
There were four bus pick-up
points within three blocks of our
motel and all the pick-up points
were just like the one at the cor-
ner outside our room.
We walked down the street to
a restaurant to eat supper Thurs-
day. What with the crowds, etc.,
we were in the process of going to
eat, waiting to eat, eating, or
walking back to the motel for two
and a half hours. The shuttling
started about 30 minutes before
we came down and was just
winding down when we got back
to the motel.
The pick-up stations looked
like where a bunch of pigeons
had stopped. There were beer
cans and bottles, drink cans and
bottles, cigarette butts, wrappers,
paper cups and general debris
And this younger generation
is supposed to be the one so con-
cerned about our environment.
TAKING THE ADVICE of the
lithotripsy operator about how to
spend our evening Thursday,
while waiting for some tests to be
made Friday morning, we decided
to kill the afternoon by taking a
trip to the Galleria.
Have you ever been there?
It makes Panama City Mall
look like a lean-to behind the
woodshed in comparison.
So do the prices.
Panama City Mall prices are
higher than most Port St. Joe

I bought a small cup of frozen

on them, for the kids in her Sun-

found out they were $1.00 each.

The prices were high, but the
aesthetics of the place were fabu-
The male nurse's' words,
when we asked him where we
could kill some time were, 'The
only and best way to do that is to
go to the Galleria!"
He was correct. We saw hun-
dreds of people who were very ev-
idently just sight-seeing.
The place had a high vaulted
glass roof, which allowed the
sunshine to come in and make
the garden-like atmosphere of the
Visiting the Galleria isn't
worth going all the way to Birm-
ingham to see, but if you go any-
how, don't miss the opportunity
to go out there and look around.
Wear a good pair of walking
shoes and carry a sweater. They
keep it cool inside.
ONE .NIGHT, WE went to
Leo's Seafood House to eat sup-
per. That's also within walking
distance from the motel, so we
hiked it over to Leo's.
This was Thursday, when the
concert-goers were crowding the

"What gives?" I asked myself.
"Here the state of Florida gives
my friend Gene Raffield all kinds
of trouble, causing him to spend
thousands of dollars to delend
his actions, for catching red fish,
but here it is on this menu."
I had to wonder who had
caught the red fish on that menu
and where was it caught.
If Gene Raffield can't catch
redfish and market them out of
his place, nobody should be able
to catch or market the item.
If the state of Florida Is ar-

Some Things I've
Learned in Fifty Years
If I live until October 12, 1989, I will be fifty years old.
Fifty years is a long time to some people. To others, like myself,
it's just a fleeting moment of time that passed before we knew it.
Whatever it is, fifty years of living on planet earth is, in my opin-
ion, worthy of some review and inspection. In my fifty years, I lived a
lot and learned, well, a little.
Below are a few things I have learned from my fifty years of ex-
perience of living:
*Never stand behind a horse and hit him with a broom to get
him to move. He will kick you in the stomach and it will hurt.
*Close friendships in early life soon fade away and become lost
in the race of life. Isn't it a shame?
*The first kiss is always the worse. That's why you remember it
*Money can't buy happiness but it can buy you a nice, big, com-
fortable car so you can ride in style while looking for it.
*Wherever you go, there you are.
*A person will always be who they are and a product of where
they came from, no matter what they do to try and change. I wish I
had learned that at a much earlier age.
*Moderation in all things makes for a happier, healthier life. I've
learned considerable lessons in this area of life, too.
*A teenager without acne doesn't know what hard living is all
*There is strength in humility.
*People who do not recognize a Supreme Being are lost, in more
ways than one.
*People who live by the sword often get "run through" from the
*Hard work alone will not guarantee success. To be successful,
a person must have some sense, work hard and have a lot of luck.
*If at first you don't succeed, when attempting an impossible
feat, give up. There's no need to make a complete fool of yourself
*A family with lots of love, laughter and happiness is a rare phe-
*Don't be too trustful of other people, especially naked bus driv-
*It's no disgrace to stumble and fall. The disgrace is not getting
*Laugh and the world laughs with you. Laugh too much and the
world will have you committed to an institution.
*One question. If the world's a stage and all the people actors,
then what happened to my part?
It's been a wonderful half-century to me. I am privileged to live
in a town I love, have a business that provides a living for me and
my family and no one could ask for a better wife and children than I
have. I thank God every day for all that he has blessed me with.
It's a Happy Birthday for mel

After 34 Years, Daughter Finds Her Lost
Father, Marvin Clenney, In Port St. Joe
Back in 1952, Marvin Clen-
ney of 1021 Long Avenue was a
sailor in Uncle Sam's Navy, at-

He would remain a Navy man un-

the submarine for most of those
years. He was a machinist, and
was assigned to aircraft carriers
later in his service career.
In 1952, Marvin and his
young wife, whom he had been
married to just a little more than
a year, had a baby daughter, Su-
san. About a year after Susan's
birth, Marvin was transferred
from the Boston area to Groton,

didn't know where he was, or
even if he was still alive. Marvin
had gone back to Boston in 1958
to see his daughter, but his for-
mer wife had remarried and
moved from the Boston area.
Marvin couldn't locate them.
Last summer Susan and her
husband, now living back in the
Boston area in Billerica, a small
town in the suburbs of Boston,
began to try and locate Susan's
father, whom she hadn't seen for
most of her life.
Susan and her husband went
to the library in Boston and
spent hours copying down ad-
dresses of all the Clenney's they
could find in library records. As a
result of the search, she sent out
50 letters all over the nation, ask-
ing for information about a Mar-
A man; from California was
one of three to answer the letters
and sent her information about
seven Clenneys he knew from the
Colquitt, Georgia vicinity-
Marvin's home town.
Another response came from
a Jan Clenney of Birmingham,
Alabama, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. John Clenney of Port St.
Joe. Jan Clenney called Marvin
to ask if he knew a girl by Su-
san's name and Marvin identified
her as his daughter.
Jan then wrote to Susan, but
before Susan could contact Mar-
vin, he wrote Susan, giving some
of his background.
This contact was made just
prior to Thanksgiving last year
and the two have corresponded
regularly ever since.
Susan and her husband, Or-
rin Goodwin of Billerica finally
had the opportunity to come
south this month and one of the
"Must" stops on their itinerary,
was a stop to see her father, Mar-
The two had a fantastic reun-
ion, with only photographic snap-
shots to identify each other by
and will be spending the next few
days getting acquainted. after
Monday, anticipating Susan's
arrival the next day, Marvin said,
'You know. I'm kind of excited!"

Dear Editor, .. ,
I read with interest an editori-
al in the September 28 issue of
The Star called, See The Signs.
'The writer was commenting 6n
the war against drugs and
seemed to feel that unless we, as
a people, get deadly serious
against drugs, we may as well as
legalize their use. The writer
made reference to Mike Royko's
column in which he interviewed
a Chicago policeman, who felt
that in order to control drug use
in his district, legalization might
have to come into effect.
I think what the writer was
saying was that a half hearted ef-
fort is almost like no effort at all. I
agree that we must adopt a "get
tough" attitude and toughen the
laws for both the abuser and the
seller, but I also think the writer
missed the mark in one area of
Drugs in our society are far
from being a problem of "less
than 20% minority". Drugs are
not some isolated problem which
exists only in the famous "Candy
Comer" area of Panama City or in
the north end of Port St. Joe.
Drugs are being used, bought,
and sold by a much greater per-
centage of people than most of us
care to admit. Drugs are a part of
society's highest class the so
called respected members of our
communities, all the way down to
1) the "down and outers" of Chica-
go's east side! The user or the
dealer could be your neighbor,
your relative, your child. It could
be the parents of your child's best
friend it could be anyone be-
cause the color of money is a
rather universal temptation and
addiction is no respecter of race,
creed, or social class.
We have become a society like
unto the Roman Empire, the fa-
ther being usurped of his legal
authority over the family a so-
ciety in which money has become
our "god". and a society who has
left the welfare of our children in
the hands of educators and when
our children get into trouble, we
blame it on the educational sys-
tem, on peer pressure, or simply
attribute it to the times we live in.

Like the Romans, we have in
many ways becomean "ungodly"
society, and as people we have an
attitude of, "if it feels'good, do it",
grab the pleasure of the moment,
and we have chosen to forget the
principles this nation was found-
ed on. It is indeed time that we
get serious time that we begin
to examine the beams in our own
eyes before looking at the splin-
ters in our brother's eye. It is
time that we stop simply accept-
ing drugs, no matter what they
are, as being a part of our culture
and none of our business as long
as our own lives are not directly
affected. We, as a nation, must be'
ready to "go to war", whether that
means higher taxes for more edu-
cation, or money to pay for pris-
ons to incarcerate those who use
and those who sell. It is time that
we open our eyes to the truth
around us, time that we get in-
volved, and time that we try to re-
establish the strong family foun-
dations that help to prevent such
situations as the one we are in to-
When staph infections are
discovered in a hospital, drastic
measures are taken to contain it
and prevent its spread. It is a
known fact that unless such
measures are taken, the infection
will spread like a fire with an un-
limited source of oxygen. We
must take the same measures
with drugs, less history repeats
itself, and we, like the Roman
Empire, will be destined to crum-
ble from within. We must support
the efforts of our government in-
stead of sitting around like "side-
line coaches" and saying what
SHOULD be done. Legalization
would only serve to promote this
insidious plague that threatens to
destroy usl We seem to think that
the problem is too far out of hand
- that all our efforts are simply
an exercise in futility, but faith is
believing that something is going
to happen and we must begin to
believe that we, as individuals,
can make a difference like the
song by Michael Jackson says,
we must start with "the man in
the mirror" and pray for change.

of candles in burnished brass
candelabra of seven and fifteen

large white bells hanging from
rounds of green leaves with two
small white doves.
A program of prenuptial or-
gan music was rendered by Mrs.
George Duren and included' thes ,
selections of the bride: "Liebes-:
tram" by Liszt, "Jesu, Joy of
Man's Desiring" by Bach, and "0
Perfect Love" by Gurney. She ac-
companied the soloist, Miss Bar-
bara Berry of Panama City, a lyric
soprano, who sang 'The Wedding
Prayer" by Dunlap and 'The,
Lord's Prayer" by Malotte. '
Preceded by her attendants;
and anticipated by the unrolling'
of the immaculate aisle cloth, at'
precisely six o'clock the bride's
arrival was announced by the
chiming of the hour; and to the
strains of the traditional Bridal

was escorted to the altar by her
She was radiant in a beauti-
ful, formal white taffeta gown
with full cathedral train. Her fif-
ted lace bodice featured a scal-i
loped sweetheart neckline and
alencon lace appliques enhanced
with seed pearls and occasional
light-catching sequins. Gathers
on short puffed sleeves were
caught by matching lace ap-
pliques. Ending just below the.
waistline, lace points added inter-
est in the front and dipped to aL
lower vee in the back. A row of'
covered buttons secured the back
of the bodice made important by
the effect of a lace yoke. The full-
ness of the A-line skirt was gently
controlled by deep inverted
pleats. The skirt and train were
trimmed with alencon lace ap-:
pliques adorned with seed pearls
and sequins and a scalloped lace-
bordered hem. Appliques formed
large matching triangles centered
front and back at the hemline. A
special feature of this skirt was
its convertibility into a large bow-
trimmed bustle for convenience
at the reception later. The bridal
headdress of lace and puffed tulle
was shaped like a crown, and the
veil was trimmed with lace ap-
pliques and bordered with tiny
seed pearls. She carried a cas-
cade of white tea roses, ivy, and
Matron of honor, Mrs. Louis

simply adorned at the shoulders
with self-fabric roses and match-
ing leaves. Below the waist a

gathered full skirt. Matching

THE STAR. PORT ST. JOE. FL THURSDAY. OCT. 12. 1989
Why does it take two jobs for
a family to live these days? Why
is it that catastrophic health care
is beyond any one person's re-
sources? Why is it that there is
more violence in the world than
ever before? Why do we have
more and enjoy it less? Why are
the elderly ignored? Why do we
make the aged linger on life sup-
port and kill the babies?
These are some of the "why"
questions that have come my way
over the past two weeks. The final
question in the list was asked for
the second time by an elderly
stroke victim just yesterday.
My stock reply to "why" ques-
tions is that there are few, if any
answers to the confounding un-
certainties of life. We can usually
come up with a good reply for the
"who, what, where, how, or when"
questions. But it is fruitless to
ask the "why" question. For in-
stance, the best answer for the
"Why me?" questions is another
*^ question; "Why not me?". When
we ask "why" we are inviting frus-
Yet I believe that there is a
general solution for the specific
"why" puzzles. The book of Prov-
erbs is a rich vein of wisdom's
golden ore in this regard.
If you are seeking the an-
swers to life's puzzles, search this
book and mark every proverb that
contains the word "life". Study
and meditate on these ancient
words of wisdom. Perhaps then
you will discover why life has
dealt you an unanswerable prob-
lem. You may even reveal a facet
of your own personality that you
never noticed before.
Do the same for other "why"
questions. Choose a word or two
that summarize your problem,
and search it out.
Having trouble understanding
children? Mark those proverbs
that contain the word "child". Has
someone hut your feelings (or
have you harmed another's repu-
tation)? Look up tailbearers. Are
you short of money? Check out
proverbs that contain "liberal" or
"enriched", etc. You can try this
with any uncertain situation in
As you study the proverbs
over a long period of time, you
may be surprised to discover that
there are not as many why ques-
tions in your life as there were be-
fore. Not necessarily because you
have answered all of life's puz-

Where to Fish
By: Scott McBean
Fishing St. Joe Bay now may yield you flounder, red fish and black
snapper. Flounder may be best caught at a good low tide, either wad-
ing in off the surf a ways or with a small boat. Flounder search out the
deep pools of water, usually a deep sandy place, is where to find them
when wading out into the grass flats at low tide.
Red fish will be moving along the surf now; chances are at a good
high or medium tide fishing along the sides of the bay will yield some
fish. If you have a boat that's even better.
Black snapper have been taken along the oil docks or long pier
next to it. A friend of mine used live bait shrimp and was quite suc-
At the Intracoastal Canal, across from Raffields, a fisherman said
he has been quite successful using live shrimp and has taken 25
pounds of speckled trout. He started early in the morning at 6:00 a.m.
or so. Maybe, that had something to do with it. He used live bull min-
nows for the few flounder he took. Just by wading out into the surf
and casting your line in, that's all I can say. I believe that fresh water
or brackish flow coming from the canal into the bay attracts plenty of
fish for anglers.
Port St. Joe Bay was plenty rough Sunday and Monday of this
past week. On Tuesday, there were hardly any pleasure boaters at all
in the bay. Only hard working mullet boats and commercial fishermen
were daring the wind, and rough chop.
I know of two sportfishermen who took their power boats out into
St. Joe Bay, but-dared not go into the off shore area.
According to the National Weather Service, high pressure will dom-
inate this area and persist throughout Wednesday. Winds are from the
northeast at 10 15 miles per hour. Seas are running three to five
feet. They don't really say much but what can you expect, pleasure
boaters are usually working when there is good weather on the bay,
and come the weekend it's rough and choppy.
I've been working on St. Joe Bay for close to two years and my
best bet is it may clear up by this weekend and have a day or two of
good weather. So get your boats and poles ready, and remember, if it's
too rough in the inlets, rivers, or bay for your boat, try wade, surf,
dock, or any kind of fishing you may choose, just get out and enjoy
this remote, scenic, quiet wonderland we all live in.

The win made the Gators'
homecoming celebration all the
more attractive for visiting alum-
ni and former members of Gator
teams of the past.
'We'll be seeing you on the
professional circuit," Amy Tapper
remarked as she placed the third
consecutive winner's jacket on
the shoulders of John Grant of
Pensacola, Sunday evening.
Grant, a student at the Uni-
versity of West Florida in Pensa-
cola, took the top slot for his
third straight year in the 16th
annual George G. Tapper Invita-
tional golf tournament at St. Jo-
seph's Bay Country Club. Grant
won with a total of 214 strokes
over the three day, 72-hole event.
Grant also won the trophy for
the lowest score on a single
round during the three round
tournament, shooting a 69 on
Sunday afternoon on the par 72
After receiving his first place
trophy, his winner's jacket and
first prize for winning the "A" divi-
sion of the Championship flight,
Grant said his student years
would be over at the end of the
current school year and he prob-
ably wouldn't be back in the
tournament next year.
FUNDS FOR SCHOLARS
The tournament roster of 240
slots was completely filled for the -
week end shoot-out, which was
played in perfect weather, for the
16th time. Rain has never can-
celled or delayed any round of
For the past three years, all
proceeds from the tournament
have gone to help support the
Gulf Coast Community Founda-
tion. The Foundation helps stu-
dents from the Gulf Coast College
service area to get at least a two-
year college education, paying
tuition fees for those who are un-
able to do so.
'The proceeds from this
year's tournament will mean the
Foundation will be increased by
some $60,000 to $70,000, due to
the contributions made by tour-
nament receipts," GCCC presi-
dent Bob McSpadden remarked.
Mrs. Tapper said Sunday
night there are no definite figures
as yet, but it appeared as if the
week end event would take in
some $17,000 to be given the
Foundation. "This contribution
generates money from several
matching and grant sources
which will total up to a possible
$70,000," she said.
