Contractors Ask for 'Performance Rules"

Want Performance Qualifications for All Crafts Involved In Construction or Maintenance Work

Gulf County contractors and
affiliated tradesmen asked the
County Commission for the pro-
tection furnished by competency
testing Tuesday night. Ann White,
acting as spokesperson for about
two dozen people involved in con-
struction and related crafts asked
for some sort of ordinance which'
would put them on "level ground"
with out-of-county tradesmen.
In her presentation to the
Commission, Mrs. White told of
unqualified people and people
from out of county coming into
Gulf County to practice a craft
with no qualifications and nobody
bothers them.. '
"When we go out of county-
even to Franklin or Bay County--
we must pass a competency test
to be able to be licensed in that
county. The same isn't so in Gulf
County," she said.
The group asked for an ordi-
nance which would cover plum-
bers, air conditioning, electri-
cians, contractors and other
trades. .
Gulf County's building offi-
cer, Don Butler, verified the need
for such an ordinance. "If we

don't create one, the State will
probably require it by next year,"
he said. "Franklin County initiat-
ed such an ordinance October
1," Butler continued.
The Board agreed such an or-
dinance was needed in Gulf
County and unanimously agreed
to begin putting one together. "We
should have it done by. the first of
the year," Chairman Warren
Yeager said.'.
The ordinance would test the
competency of all tradesmen in
the building trade whether it be a
carpenter or any of the other
crafts involved. Under such an or-
dinance, all craftsmen, whether
or not he resides in the county,
would be faced with his perfor-
mance ability being acceptable to
ordinance standards.
Gulf County had to pay a
$2,100 fine to the Department of
Environmental Protection under
the threat of an additional
$10,000 per day levy if it contin-
ued to delay paymefit. The fine
was for an infraction of nearly a
year ago.
"I don't want to pay it and I'll

Health Fair
A LARGE CROWD of visitors showed up at the Health Fair
Saturday in the Centennial Building. Health practitioners in sev-
eral fields of medicine were on hand to perform tests on people
who came by. The tests were free and patients referred to doc-
tors if an abnormality showed up.
The fair, which offered everything from blood pressure
checks to foot care, lasted until noon and was aimed primarily
at elderly people. Those conducting the fair and the sponsor,
Gulf Pines Hospital, were pleased with the participation.

vote against it," said Commission-
er Michael Hammond. "It's not
right to levy such a fine. It's not
the money, but the principle of
the things"
The fine was instigated by the
DEP because the County failed to '
keep adequate records of a land-
fill site. The records were kept,
but not in the manner which DEP
thought they should have been.
Thus, the fine was levied. '
Hammond was all for digging
in his heels and opposing the
payment, but the other Cominis-
sioners argued against it. Com:n
missioner Billy Traylor observed,
"I'm totally against the levy too,
but that $10,000 threat makes:
me want to pay it and fight it af-
ter the fact; and I'm ready to take
the necessary steps to prevent
such senseless fines from, being;;
levied against this or any other
county in the future. All it would
have taken in this instance is a.
letter informing us of how they;
wanted the records kept."
The Board agreed to' attempt
to get an extension on the fine.
which is due today [Thursday],
and if the extension isn't granted,
the fine will be paid immediately
and protests will be prepared and
sent to the department and to
certain influential legislators.
The Board also argued over
having to pay a court-ordered bill
for $915.00 to an out-of-county
attorney for defending a person's
interest in Gulf County court in a
child custody case. "If we .pay
this," Commissioner Traylor ex-
ploded, "Anyone in this room ean
go to court, declaring they can't
afford a lawyer and we'll have to
pay his feel"

lents Undecided About Water Supply

ABOUT 50 RESIDENTS of St. Joe Beach met Monday night
to consider their switching to Mexico Beach as a supplier of bulk
water for their water system. The subdivision, just west of Port
St. Joe, had been using Port St. Joe's treated water in their sys-
tem ever since it was built, some 10 years ago.
There was very little in the way of an organized movement ex-
pressing a desire to switch suppliers with the majority of those
in attendance at the meeting wanting to continue with the Port
St. Joe service.
The St. Joe Beach water system stretches to approximately
the east side of Gulf Aire. The subdivision is supplied by the
Mexico Beach system, which also supplies Beacon Hill.
A LARGE PART OF the discussion Monday night was the
problem Mexico Beach has experienced with a high level of fluo-
ride in their water. Mexico Beach, however, is planning to un-
dergo a $1 million renovation of their system, drilling additional

wells in order to lower the fluoride level by diluting water from
their present well with water from other wells. In order to pay for
the renovation the community, just over the county line, is at-
tempting to expand its system to other customers. They have of-
fered treated water to the St. Joe Beach system for $1.05 per
1,000 gallons.
Port St. Joe, on the other hand, has water which consistently
tests among the best in the state of Florida, with its treatment
method, charges St. Joe Beach $1.80 per 1,000 gallons of treat-
ed water. Mayor Frank Pate says, 'We don't make any money,
even selling at that rate."
The people who subscribe to the Beach Water system agreed
at the hearing that they would put off making a decision until
they could get more input on the Mexico Beach system and
plans for its improvement.
They will conduct another hearing on Monday, October 25.



Officials Sworn In
NEWLY-ELECTED MAYOR Ray Dickens and City Com-
missioner Olivia Landry were officially seated in their offic-
es and given the oath of office in a special ceremony last
week. The two will embark on two year terms of service to
the city government of Wewahitchka.
The pair won election on September 7, each with only
one opponent. Dickens won his seat with a 133 vote major-
ity over his opponent, Tony Strange. Landry earned a slim
victory of only two votes, edging out Harold Armstrong.
The incumbents in neither office sought re-election.
LANDRY WON ELECTION in her first try for public of-
fice in the City of Wewahitchka. She will replace Robert Na-
tions, who completed a one year term, to which he was ap-
pointed to fill an unexpired term.
Dickens had served three years as Mayor in the past
and decided to run again for the office after a one term ab-

No Barbs

THE FLORIDA LEGISLATURE Is having numerous selfish
people put a bug in their ear about the utopia which will exist if
net fishing is banned in Florida. First it was books in Boston;
now it's nets in Florida. We suppose we will be famous for our
actions in denying a workman his tools, as well as rolling in fish,
should this net ban come to pass.
One lone, squeaky voice in the House is wondering about the
compensation the State of Florida is going to pay those commer-
cial fishermen who are required to fish without nets. This Repre-
sentative, Charles Sembler of Sebastian-and a Republican, by
the way-has suggested the State should set up a fund for com-
pensating fishermen who have had their nets confiscated. He
says he sees no funds set aside for this.purpose at the present
MAYBE THIS THING the sports fishermen have for Gene
Raffield and Raffield Fisheries is not a unilateral activity after
all. Most of us here in Gulf County feel this way. We all feel as if
there Is a contract out on Raffield and his business by the pow-
ers that be. Now, we feel as If this vendetta is aimed at commer-
cial fishermen in general.
Remember back when the Soil Conservation Service was en-
couraging farmers to build fish ponds, both as a water conserva-
tion move and a producer of meat also? They warned that the
fish population should be thinned regularly or they would over-
populate. Biologists of a short while ago told us to go fishing reg-,
ularly In the lakes and streams. If you do, they advised, the fish
will grow larger. Their numbers will flourish.
COMMON SENSE should tell us that the same yardstick
should apply to the ocean or the Gulf of Mexico, too.
The problem is that sports fishermen have gotten greedy as
well as large in number. They now catch more fish than com-
mercial fishermen and their nets. Maybe we should do away
with their barbed hooks!
The Florida Legislature Is planning, however weak and meek
the motion, to ban the nets and pay the fishermen not to fish.
Seems we had that experiment with the farmers and their corn
and peanuts.
WE WONDER IF the Legislature has ever heard of that cliche
which advises that you can give a person a loaf of bread and
cure his hunger for as long as it takes him to eat the bread; but
- give him the tools to fish with [including nets] and he can feed
himself and his family forever.
Didn't that cliche come from the U.S. government's operation
of the Peace Corps in starving nations?
What do we think of the proposed ban? About as much as
we would think of banning newspapers.

Too Relaxed?

POLICE OVER IN Jefferson County have arrested four teens
and have lodged charges against them, pertaining to the murder
of the English tourist at the I-10 rest stop near Monticello. The
boys are aged 13 to 16. According to the Tallahassee Democrat,
the mother of one of the boys told authorities they were all at
4her home- watching television until 2:00 a.m. 'in the inomnfri.
Then -all four leftiricnludlrig the 13-year-bld arid the'14-year
,old .'. and two 16-year-olds.'
It's unusual, wouldn't you think, for.kids of this tender age
to be roaming the streets at night; stealing cars; accused of kill-
,ing people. Shouldn't a child that age [they are children] ordinar-
ily be expected to be.home in bed? Or, at least, at home
NOW, THE AUTHORITIES of Florida say they haven't the
flaws to deal with youths accused of such a heinous crime. They
-can't be kept in jail without the direction of a Grand Jury. At
their tender age, special care must be given them, such as not
mentioning their names in print, separating them from the pub-
lie where they are more or less prone to do the same things
These are unusual youths. They all have a record a yard long
some even longer. Probably they should have had a curfew,
:at least, applied to their nocturnal activities by the courts. It
"would seem logical to do so, considering the number of charges
they had placed against them already in their young life.
HOW DO YOU DEAL with young kids like this? They are
afraid of nothing. They don't realize ,how traumatic their actions
are for others, including their own parents. How supportive have
their parents been in the past? Have they insisted on values to
be displayed in their lives sorting out wrong activities from right
activities? Do they even have parents?
Has the State of Florida allowed things to deteriorate to this
point by relaxirig penalties against juveniles to the point authori-
ty is not feared or respected?

bunker Down with Kes

by Kesley Colbert

?lp Me, Rhonda..JHelp Help Me!


I don't know much about
football, although I think I'm a lit-
tle ahead of Mrs. Luther Purvis.
She went to see her favorite
grandson, Nicky Joe Stafford,
play for the first time, came
home, and told Mr. Purvis that
she, "didn't understand why they
Just couldn't give each team a
ball and cut out all of that awful
fighting ....
I also don't want to do "an-
other football story". This, as I
hope you will discover, goes way
beyond the realm of football.
Jeremy Tull is number 77 in
your program-I don't know
where he ranks in your heart, but
in mine he Jumped several notch-
es last Friday night .". And so
did a lot of others ....
Jeremy is a big guy. He
weighs just slightly less than one

of those old fashioned upright pi-
anos. He's quick and you ought
to see him trap block-he wipes
'em outl The thing I've admired
about J.T. is he will get downfield
and block. Most big guys want to
do their work very close to where
they live. Very close! When you
ask a big guy to "pull down the
line, lead up the hole making
sure you 'bust it' so you're ahead
of the running back, dip that in-
side shoulder, and run up field
hopefully into and right over the
free safety", they immediately
start calculating the distance be-
tween themselves and the free
safety. Then they get to adding up
the times "we're" gonna run the
sweep. You'd be amazed at how
often the big guy gets his feet tan-
gled up with the center's. "Sor-
ry, Coach, I couldn't get out-
dang center backed up or they
shot a line backer in there or
Not so with 77; he'll get
downfield and look someone up.
He'll also turn around and
play defense. I saw him limp off
Friday night and I was a mite
concerned. I found out later, it

was a bruised calf muscle. I got
kicked by a horse in the calf
once: I couldn't walk for three
days. My dad said I was lucky, it
was just a glancing blow. J.T.
limped back on the field and got
right back in the middle of things.
He came off a little later for
more repairs. This time, part of
his finger nail and some skin was
ripped off. Folks, that hurts me
Just to write it down! It would
also sack me up for the evening.
I'd a'said, "Hey, Coach, I ain't go-
ing back in there."
It's a good thing Coach Priest
wasn't counting on me.
I have two boys in the pro-
gram and often wondered what
kind of coach they "needed". Lis-
ten, you spend five minutes with
Coach Priest and you'll realize, he
likes kids. He ain't playing. He
ain't pretending. I don't know or
care about those x's and o's, give
me the guy who wants to be
around the young'uns. Those
coaches like my two boys, and
yours, too. That type of relation-
ship alone can win you the close
ones. It can also help you in foot-
ball games.

Speaking of close ones--it
didn't look good for the home
team Friday night when North
Florida Christian, an excellent
football team, moved the ball
down to our 4 yard line. Three
minutes left on the clock. They
score, they win. We stop 'em, we
win. It's first down. The rubber
was fixing to meet the road.
Jeremy Tull, paying no atten-
tion to his calf or to his bandaged
hand, turned to his comrades-in-
arms, "I've spent everyday in the
weight room for the last four
years getting ready for this mo-
ment. Nothing can keep me out of
this ball game."
Hello! Bingol J.T. came to a
realization that so many in life
sadly miss. There is a direct
connection between how you
live your life and the results
you get out of life.
Sure, it's bigger than football.
and I hope number 6 in the de-
fensive secondary caught the sig-
nificance of that statement. And I
hope number 10 at outside line
backer got it and number 50 ... I

'Leaves Aren't All That's Colorful In the Fall

Can You Legitimately Claim That Playing GolfIs Exercise?

THIS WILL BE A column on
losing weight; or attempting to. At
least it will be a column on wish-
ing I could lose some weight with-
out the exercise of declaring a
moratorium on some of the deli-
cious things I eat. It's hard not to
say 'Yes" when one or two of the
sweet ladies in Port St Joe urge
me to "have a piece of cake. Mrs.
So and So made it and it's abso-
lutely delicious."
Well what do you say to an
introduction like that? You eat
the cake! The same goes for pie or
casseroles, stew, cornbread,
homemade rolls, etc. and etc.
There is one special lady in
town who brings me a number of
cream puffs periodically. How can
I turn her down? How do I hurt
her feelings by not eating the
cream puffs? The answer is, I
don't. I even look forward to the
next bunch of creamy, chocolate-
covered, pure heaven!
But, I'm still interested in los-
ing weight. It has become a ne-

cessity. Still, there are some
things I need to know.
ONE THING I need to know
is why are my pants getting too
tight around the middle when the
scales say I still weigh the same
thing I did when I bought them
and they fit.
That's no Joke! I have always
weighed around 190 to 200
pounds. I've weighed that for
years, and the pants I have were
bought with that weight in mind
. .. and around the middle.
But, they are getting tight!
Can you explain that one to me.

About four years ago, I ballooned
up to 215 and some of the same'
pants and shirts I am wearing
now were not as tight then as
they are now at an even 200.
Do you suppose they
This weight thing is begin-,
ning to bother me now. I can see
the day when I must go down-,
town and purchase new slacks
and shirts if I am going to have
clothing which is comfortable to
wear. I'm beginning to feel like
that comic character of many
years ago in the "Smilin' Jack"
drawn by Zack Mosely. Smilin'

Jack had a Hawaiian sidekick
called "Fat Stuff' whose shirt was
always popping buttons off and a
chicken was al-ways-Tandy to gob-
ble them up as fast as they
popped off.
COULD IT BE that I need to
get me an exercise machine?
There are machines today for
everything. Got a sprained ankle?
Get a whirlpool machine. Got an
aching back? Get a special mat-
tress with a vibrator built in.
Have a bad memory? Get a com-
puter to remember what you are
prone to forget. Machines tell you
where you hurt, diagnosing you
like a skipping automobile en-
gine, to isolate your problem.
An exercise machine would
be just the ticket for me, to help
me in losing a little weight.
I see exercise machines on
television almost every day.
Would they help me to look like
the one demonstrating the ma-
chine? I often wondered why peo-

ple with these perfect physiques
are shown usingmachines which
help them lose weight. They don't
need too.
Tanned, supple, muscular,
going through the routine on
their particular machine as if it
were no effort at all. I should be
able to use such a machine.
taking up golf. That's exercise; or
so I am told.
I could take up the game of
golf, get me a golf cart to ride in,
hire a caddy to tote my bag to
and from the ball for me. I could
get all sorts of weight-losing exer-
cise playing golf.
A golfer persuaded me not to
take up the game, however, if I
was going to use it solely as a
weight-reducing tool. He didn't
actually button-hole me and give
me the word in 25 words or less.
He persuaded me in other ways.
For instance when Gary Hart
came to the champion's circle at

St. Joseph Bay Country Club to
claim the championship jacket re-
cently, he remarked, "I hope it
fits! I'm getting a little pudgy
around the middle."
If a serious golfer-serious
enough to win the Tapper tourna-
ment-is gaining weight and play-
ing golf every day, what good
could it do me?
Then, Saturday, I saw some
serious golfers when I went to the
course to make some pictures of
real golfers in action. They came
zipping up to the green, in their
golf carts; parked them on the lip
of the green, and spent the rest of
the half hour standing around
while one of them putted. The
putter ambled around, getting the
best angle for his shot, until he
leisurely stroked the ball toward
the hole. :
How can I lose weight with an
exercise regimen like that? I
guess I will continue to wrestle
with those tight pants. That'll give
me a little exercise

The Spaceport Authority of
Florida revealed this week anoth-
er space probe has been planned
from the installation here in Gulf
County at Cape San Bias. It will
be the second shot from the local
installation since it was activated
in 1991.
According to Edward L. Elle-
good, Director of Operations of
the Spaceport Authority of Flori-
da, the mission will take place on
the morning of December 4. Elle-
good said, "We have notified the
necessary representatives at
Eglin Air Force Base, and are now
working with FSU to prepare for
the first of three ozone measure-
ment missions."
The Space Center installation
here in Gulf County was estab-
lished to handle primarily educa-
tional and industrial sub-orbital
The first shot from the sta-
tion was delayed several times
and came about a year after the
station was activated. The site is
composed of a launch pad, which
was already in place from the
1960's and 70's at the Eglin Test
site at Cape San; Bias.
The first shot came in the fall
of 1992 and another was to have
followed within just a short while.
But, Ellegood said, 'The many de-
lays since our previous Cape San
Bias launch were the result of
other mission requirements,
equipment procurement require-
ments for the ozone mission and
our busy schedule for other pro-
jects at Cape Canaveral and else-

The space director said his of-
fice would be coordinating this
mission with Gulf County officials
and the local community. He said
some student participation is be-

ing considered for the launch, to
include special tours, launch site
access, etc. The strident access
will include high school students
as well as students from FSU.

The Spaceport location here

Halloween Hoots

On Tuesday, October 19, the
Gulf County Public Library In
Port St. Joe will present a special
children's program on the Hallo-
ween season, Halloween Dream.
Preschoolers' program will
start at 1:30 p.m. and K-5th
grade will be at 2:30 p.m. Chil-
dren are asked to be on time for
their particular program, so the
library staff won't have to make
the witches and goblins wait too
long. The programs are free, and
a good turnout is expected.

To The Editor:
We are writing in response to
the article in The Star on 9/30/
93 regarding the prohibition of
beach driving.
Several "Un-happy Taxpay-
ers" as well as a local realtor are
so very concerned about the ero-
sion and destruction of the
beach; did they ever stop to think
of the destruction they have
caused by DEVELOPMENT-
such as leveling the dunes and
surrounding areas; driving pil-
ings; building roads and : drive-
ways; etc.????? It makes the local,
residents RETCH to continue to
hear your "phony" concerns.
The citizens of Gulf County
and the State of Florida should
NOT have to pay the price of NO,
access to the cape beaches be-
cause of the lack of knowledge
and research by some of the Cape
San Bias property owners. A sim-
ple check of survey maps would
have revealed a steady erosion
rate from the point of the Cape
north for 2 miles.
This also brings a point to
light; we wonder if there is an ef-
fort by some realtors selling this .
property and opposing beach '
driving, not to disclose this infor-
mation. It seems that the realtors
are concerned of the possible lack
of revenue due to a few com-
plaints by renters. They should
realize that the county receives a
lot of tax dollars because of per-'
mitted beach driving.
The property owners com-
plaining were aware that beach
driving was permitted at the time
they purchased their property,
were they not?
As for the, amount of taxes.

What concerns us is ulterior

does he feel that prohibiting
beach driving would increase his
property values??????
We realize there are problems
with beach driving, but we also
feel that the county ordinance is
addressing most of these con-
cerns. Remember, there is fine
line between utilizing a natural
resource and protecting it. We
need to walk that fine line by pro-.
tecting, not abusing.

Cape San Blas
Letter for Gulf County
Residents from the Cape San
Blas Taxpayers
On September 28th, this as-
sociation appeared before the
Gulf County Board of County
Commissioners. Our purpose
was to convince the Board that
Cape San Blas is a significant
economic asset to Gulf County,
to be protected and supported.
Although most properties are
not owned and occupied by local
people, the taxes collected from
them amount to over one million
dollars. Tourists who rent the
houses spend hundreds of thou-
sands of dollars that support lo-
cal businesses and tradesmen. ,
Erosion at the- Cape. from
the Stump Hole north to the
State Park, has become a major
threat to the preservation of
Cape's economic value to the
County. Ass the- beach becomes
narrower, the public is endan-
gered by vehicle traffic. Tourists
with young families find this ob-
jectionable and do not return or
purchase property. As the sea
erodes the sand and dunes, it is.
eroding the value of taxable Gulf
County property, and our future
revenue base. Without .immedi-
ate positive action by the board.,
this economic decline may soon
be felt.
We want all Gulf County
residents to know that our re-
quest to the board is based
upon our desire to preserve the
beauty and value of Gulf County
Beaches, not for our benefit
alone, but for the benefit of the

entire County.
The full text of our petition
to the Board is presented below.
If you agree with our position,
please let your Commissioner
know how you feel.

To: Gulf County' Board
of Commissioners
From: The Cape San Bias
Taxpayers Associa-
Date: 9/24/93
Subject: Request for
Change in,St. Jo-
seph Peninsula
Beach Manage-.
ment Policies
The Cape San Bias Taxpay-
ers Association is concerned
that erosion on St. Joseph Pe-
ninsula is causing physical and
economic damage to Gulf
County. Neither Gulf County
nor the State of Florida has a
strong program to preserve the
beaches in the St. Joseph Bay
Aquatic. Preserve (which in-
cludes the beaches from Cape
San Bias to the tip of St. Joseph
Peninsula). The beach from the
Stump Hole north to St. Joseph
State Park has and is continu-
ing to suffer severe erosion. This
Association believes that beach
driving is a critical matter of pe-
destrian safety and contributes
to the erosion. These factors will
ultimately result in a decline in
the Peninsula's economic value
to the County. The Cape San
Bias Taxpayers Association,
therefore, respectfully petitions
the Gulf County Board of
County Commissioners to
change its current ordinances
and prohibit beach driving on
St. Joseph Peninsula from the
Stump Hole north to St. Joseph
State Park, and to formulate a
plan to combat the beach ero-

Residents State Position On Beach Driving

sion, for the detailed reasons set
forth below.
1. In 1977 Gulf County saw
fit to prohibit beach driving on
St. Joe Beach. In its 1984 revi-
sion(84-3) of this ordinance the
County defended its prohibition
by declaring that driving on the
beaches had resulted in "de-
struction of vegetation and sand
dunes which leaves the upland
exposed and endangered from
an environmental stand point."
and "in many instances the
manner of operating vehicles
has resulted in great danger to
"e-people who are lying or walking%
along the beaches". At the time.
of these original ordinances the
beaches of St. Joseph Peninsula
were largely undeveloped, but
this has changed. The Peninsula
beaches are at least as heavily
used today as was St. Joe Beach
sixteen years ago. Moreover, the
St. Joseph Peninsula beaches
have significantly higher rates of
erosion than St. Joe Beach. The
County, to be consistent with its
own past logic and legislative
precedent, should now prohibit
driving on the beaches of St. Jo-
seph Peninsula from the Stump
Hole north to the State Park.
2. Because of the erosion,
many areas of the beach from
the Stump Hole north to. the
State Park are not wide enough
for simultaneous use by pedes-
trians and vehicles. Vehicles are
forced to traverse the dmdne
structure either to avoid the wa-
ter or to avoid bathers and their
towels, umbrellas, and games.
Furthermore, it is frequently im-
possible, because of the erosion,
to reach the beach north of the
lighthouse via the only legal ve-
hicle access at C-30. Conse-
quently numerous illegal access
points have been created by ve-
Shicles driving over the dunes.
The destruction of vegetation
and dunes caused by beach
traffic inhibits healing after a
storm surge, and is thereby an
accelerating factor in the ero-
sion equation, which the county
itself has acknowledged. The
County has been requested by
the Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection, Beaches
and Shores Division (1991) and
by the Florida Marine Patrol
(1992) to stop beach driving in
this area.
3. The County has created
an inherent and indisputable
risk to pedestrians by sanction-
ing driving on the narrow beach-
es of St. Joseph Peninsula, and
the county has magnified the
risk by failing to adequately en-
force its own driving regula-
tions. By the Sheriffs report,
there is a patrolling officer as-
signed to the beach only on
weekends and holidays from
10AM-6PM during the summer
months. The beaches on the pe-
ninsula are a nationally known
resort, and are used heavily
throughout the summer every
day of the week. Many vacation-
ers do not expect truck and
ATV's to be on the beach. The
noise of the waves makes it diffi-
cult to hear approaching vehi-
cles. It would easily be possible
for a child playing on the beach
to walk into the path of a truck.
Moreover, vehicles use the
beach at night, sometimes with-
out headlights, when there is no
patrolling officer. There has not

yet been a serious accident, but.
as the beaches are being used
more heavily every year, we be-
lieve an accident is inevitable.
The County is clearly liable,
having legalized a practice
which is dangerous and which it
inadequately regulates by any
standard. We ask the County to
stop beach driving in the inter-
est of public safety.
4. If the County applied the
same standards to the beaches
of St. Joseph Peninsula that it
has applied and upheld in re-
gard to St. Joe Beach, driving
.would- be prohibited. *That it
does riot apply these standards
is an infringement of the rights
of property owners along the Pe-.
ninsula, and is clearly discrimi-
natory. Much of the driving oc-
curs above mean high water, on
beach that is primarily privately
owned. By permitting this driv-
ing, the County has denied a
Specific subset of property own-,
ers jurisdiction over their own
lands, anid has done so in a way
which actually destroys the
property. The County has no
demographic or scientific data
base to support prohibition of'
driving' in one area and sanc-:
tioning :of driving in another.
Nor does the public's right to ac-
cess the beaches Include a right
to destroy them. It cannot be
argued that the public has no
alternative 'access to the beach.
The County has use of two prop-
erties between the Stump Hole
and the State Park which it
could develop with dune walkb-
vers and upland parking, if it
chose to do so.
5. Florida Statute 161.58
clearly states that all revenue
collected from the sale of beach
driving permits shall be applied
"only for beach maintenance;
beach-related traffic manage-
ment and parking; beach-
related: law enforcement and lia-
bility insurance; or beach relat-
ed sanitation, lifeguard, or other
staff purposes." Gulf County has
not so applied its revenue, and
stands in violation of Florida
Statute. This revenue, if used
for beach management exclu-
sively, could have provided up-
land parking for all citizens, and
critically needed law enforce-
ment which the Sheriff claims
cannot be supplied without fur-
ther funding.
6. St. Joseph Peninsula,
from the tip of Cape San Bias to
St. Joseph State Park, lies with-
in the St. Joseph Bay Aquatic
Preserve. As part of the Pre-
serve, all land seaward of mean
high water lies under State ju-
risdiction. The majority of up-
land property is privately
owned. Florida Statute 161.58
grants the authority to deter-
mine beach driving to local au-
thorities only on land which is
under local jurisdiction. To our
knowledge, the State has not
transferred the jurisdiction of
aquatic preserve lands to the
County. Therefore the county
can only be permitting driving
on private lands. While there is
clear legal precedent establish-
ing unrestricted lateral access to
beaches below the vegetation
line to pedestrians, we believe
that no such precedent exists
for vehicles. The County, there-
fore, has no authority to permit
beach driving on private proper-

ty against the wishes of the
property owner, and we do not
believe the property owners
have been consulted in this re-
7. The Gulf County Board of
County Commissioners should
recognize that tourism Is one of
the County's fastest growing in-
dustries; providing jobs for local
citizens, significant Income for
local business, and large
amounts of revenue through
property taxes. Gulf County
does not have an active beach
management plan to protecbthis 1
vital resource, but rather seems '
Intent upon letting it die
through Inaction. As the erosion
decreases the beach.on the Pe-
ninsula, tourists find it less at-
tractive. This Association has
written testimony that individu-
als will not return next year,be-
cause of deteriorating beaghap,
conditions. Over the nexif.me.w-
years, failure to formulate-.a,-
beach management plan. andktot;
halt the driving which contrih
utes to erosion and endangers
lives, will certainly stall the
growth of the County's tourist
In summary, the Associa-
tion requests the Board of
County Commissioners 'to treat
Cape San 'Blas as an economic e
asset to the County and:
1) Seek assistance to. contibW'l "
the erosion.
2) Stop beach driving from ,
the stump Hole to the State
3) Change your proposed
use of the Tucker property to an
upland parking area and beach
4) Provide full enforcement
of current ordinances until
changes are made.
The Cape San Bias Taxpay-
ers Association represents 178
property owners on St. Joseph
Peninsula and is dedicated to
protecting and preserving the
natural beauty and the recrea-
tional value of the beaches for
all citizens of the County for
years into the future. The Asso-
ciation firmly believes that all
citizens of the County should
have access to the beaches and
is willing to work with the
County to that end. We are ea-
ger to cooperate to develop a
beach management plan which
will be non-destructive, safe,
and equitable. For example, we
would support the construction
of upland parking facilities and
dune walkovers. But driving on
the beach of St. Joseph Penin-
sula from the Stump Hole to the
State Park must stop. We re-
spectfully request that the
County Commissioners consider
our arguments and comply with
our request. We further request
that the Board of County Com-
missioners include this letter in
the minutes of the County
Board Meeting and provide the
Association with a written re-
sponse at the address above. As
these concerns impact the des-
ignated St. Joseph Bay Aquatic
Preserve, which has been estab-
lished by the Florida Legisla-
ture, this Association is also
taking its plea for action to the
State level.
Thank you for your time
and attention.

O WHow to Build A Bar Cookie

So, you've seen recipes in the newspaper, but never tried one?
Maybe you looked a few over, and seeing terms like "simmer, cream
together and fold in," you weren't sure what they meant. Sometimes
we forget that most Americans did not learn baking skills as children.
Well, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to make a cookie -- especially when
you understand the language in the instructions. Here's a baking from scratch
ef7 cookie recipe for first time bakers. 7
~ Spicy Raisin Bar Cookies .
(Rocket Scientist)
15 oz (1 pkg) raisins 1 teaspoon salt*
2 cups water 3 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup butter or shortening 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon "
1 cup sugar 1. teaspoon nutmeg
2 eggs 1 cup chopped nuts, optional '.
1 tablespoon baking powder* $t
*You can use self-rising flour instead of all purpose; omit the baking powder & salt.
Procedure: Turn oven on and set to 325F. Simmer raisins in 2 cups water 15
minutes. Cool slightly. Pour 3/4 cup of the water into a measuring cup and set aside.
Drain off the rest of the water. Cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Beat in eggs. Throughly mix baking powder and salt with the flour. (Ifusing self-rising
flour, skip this step.) Stir together flour, cinnamon and nutmeg. Thoroughly blend
flour mixture alternately with 3/4 cup reserved water into creamed mixture. Add raisins
and stir in nuts. Pour batter into greased 15-1/2 X 10-1/2 inch pan with 1-inch high
sides. (If your pan is a little smaller, your bar cookies will be taller.) Bake in 3250F oven
for 30 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pan. Cut into 2 X 3 inch bars.
Here's what it means:
Cream together: Using a spoon or Simmer: Bring the temperature
electric mixer, beat mixture together until of liquid to just about boiling but
Sit becomes soft, smooth and well-blended, not quite 7- until you see little,
bubbles just breaking the surface.
Measuring Flour: Flour does not have fill it level
to be sifted if it is lightly stirred and spooned 1
into a dry measuring cup (one in which the
measurements go all the way to the top of the cup).
Fill the cup, then level it off with a straight edge (knife or spatula). When using a
measuring spoon, level off other dry ingredients, such/as sugar, the same way.
Beat in eggs: Break the eggs open, pouring them into a small bowl. Remove
,,any shell fragments. Pour eggs over ingredients in large bowl. Take a wooden
spoon and stir, using short fast circular motions, until it becomes one consistency.

Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

Children and adolescents do NOT "inherit" fatness. What they
do "inherit" is the family food patterns and habits. Some children
will fall into poor eating patterns insidiously. Suddenly, a/ parent
will realize the child is snacking all day. If this happens, there is a
,need to be firm and put an end to eating except at mealtimes. Water
is allowed, between meals, and that is all.
Other children eat too fast. Mealtime should be a leisurely time
'with discussions of family activities and plans. No child should be
allowed to bolt his food and jump up from the table. Careful chew-
ing gives much more satisfaction and the sense of having eaten
than does swallowing food in large unchewed amounts.
If between meal eating is controlled, that means there is no role
in a child'sldiet for potato chips, soft drinks, fritos, candy bars, and
other junk foods. Help your older child save any money he might
spend on those non-essentials for some large, expensive item he
wants to have.
School children should be occupied from breakfast to lunch,
and until the end of the school day. After school, they may need a
piece of fruit. With a short break after school, time should be spent
first doing homework and then outside playing or exercising. There
is no legitimate role for the television in the afternoon unless one is
using an exercise tape.
SExercise Is equally important in obesity control to meal plan-
ning and food preparation. Everyone rides too much instead of
walking. Children do not need to be driven everywhere they go. Bi-
cycle riding and walking are great ways for children to get where
they want to go.
Foed should be prepared by baking, broiling, or boiling-not
frying. We all need to work hard to reduce the amount of fats and
sugars in our diets.
In summary:
1. No between meal eating
2. Eat slowly
3. Careful meal planning
4. Careful food preparation
If you as a parent are doing all these things and your child is
still too fat, you need to discuss the problem with your doctor to see
where the problem lies.

The Lion's Tale

By Jackie Quarles
Faith Christian School has
just completed its first six weeks
of its twentieth year. There are
approximately 175 students in K-
3 through grade twelve.
This year began with orienta-
tion on Monday, August 17, and
has been moving along at a fast
Students in grade 7-12 spent
a wonderful week,at the Wilds, a
christian camp in North Carolina.
While they were there, grades' 1-4
went to the Museum of Florida
History in Tallahassee, and K-5
went to Gulf World.
K-5 is studying a country
each month. In September, they
ended their study of Mexico with
a fiesta including authentic Mexi-
can foods and even a pinata.
Grades 5, 6, and 7 helped
with the annual Coastal Clean-
up. Those were their smiling fac-
es on the front page of The Star a
few weeks back.
An Open House was hosted
by the teachers for the parents in
all three locations at the end of
the six weeks.
We have out-grown our facili-
ties and are beginning a building
program. Long Avenue Baptist
Church has graciously allowed us
to use their facilities' this year for
grades five, six, and our five-year
old kindergarteners.,These class-
es began the year in office space.
at Pat Floyd's and in the Temple
home in Palm Blvd. We thank all
who provided these places and all
who helped with the two moves.
The three and four year old stu-
dents meet at our Annex on
Eighth Street. All other classes
are using every available room at
the main site on 20th Street. We
invite visitors to our school-Just
call the office at 229-6707 to let
us know when to expect you.
We welcome several new
teachers to our faculty. Dr. Ta-
maria Joyner, Jr.-sr. high science
and health; Elaine Thomas, 6th
grade; Elizabeth Roberts, K-5 as-
sistant and P. E. assistant; and
Angela Bouington, 4th grade.

viewed by the Commission as any
alligator over four feet in length
that poses a threat to people, or
in some cases property, such as
domestic animals.
Kirkland said nuisance alliga-
tors in Northwest Florida can be
reported by calling the Commis-
sion's Panama City office at 1-
For the five-year period 1988-
92, he said trappers captured
and removed 20,572 nuisance al-
ligators across the state, and an-
other 12,420 were killed by indi-
viduals participating in the
annual September public waters
He said in most instances,
though, alligators are shy and
tend to avoid contact with hu-
mans, instead preferring to cruise
along stream banks, lakes, and in

that today numbers more than
1,000,000. And therein lies the
Although alligator attacks on
humans are relatively rare, they
do occur. There have been more
than 170 attacks on humans
since 1948, when the Florida

fatalities, the latest being the
death of 10 year old Bradley Wei-

June 19.
Commission spokesman Lt.
Stan Kirkland said there are sev-
eral things you can do to avoid
confrontations with alligators.
"One of the most important
things is never feed alligators,"
Kirkland said. "It's illegal and can
result in you getting arrested and
paying a fine, but more impor-
tantly, it conditions alligators to
associate humans with food. They
lose their fear of humans and
then the first time you get in the
,,' water where they're fed, you run
'the risk of a problem."
He said it's a good idea to
avoid swimming in areas inhabit-
.ed by large alligators, and cer-
tainly to avoid swimming with
pets. He also said it's not a good

The Port St. Joe Sharks gave
the fans attending Friday night's

Friday night.
But the victory wasn't with-
out a price. Before the game was
over, Jeremy Tull came literally
crawling off the field, with a leg
injury. But after a few minutes of
recovery he was right back in the
game; hobbling along, but playing
nevertheless. In the third quarter,
Eric Ramsey; and' Eric Monteiro
ran together full force, sandwich-
ing Shane Lambert between
them. Lambert was leaping for- a

Ramsey and Monteiro were de-
fending, and crashed together
with such 'force it knocked both
players out. Ramsey was back in

quarter. Monteiro. never did re-
The game was not without its
controversy, either; a controversy
which came near to being a de-

It was in that same third
quarter, with the score tied at 28-

their own 16. An Eagle fumbled "r
the fair catch and the Sharks
scurried after it, retaining posses-
sion. But the referee ruled the
ball dead-before it hit the ground,
generating a loud howl of protest
from the fans. Finally, after a
conference on the matter, the re-
ferees ruled the punt play be run
again. This time, the. Eagles field-

Wewa Beats State

Ranked Munroe

The Wewahitchka Gators not
only won their first football game
of the season, last Friday night;
they did It in style by knocking
fourth ranked Munroe into eighth
place in Class A rankings.
With the return of Will Sum-
ner, the Gat6rs' regular quarter-
back. the team was able to put
Tranum McLemore back in his
regular position at running back
and his reception of two long
passes showed the improvement.
The Gators scored in each of
the first three quarters, to win
their first victory of the season,
20-7. A combination of an offense
which clicked when it had oppor-
tunities and the defense held firm
when It was necessary that they
do so.

10, Container Disposal

Intended t
The most asked question of
Florida Department of Revenue
staff during September was:
What is the state charging me a
one-cent fee on containers if I
am already putting containers
in a recycling bin and paying
the city or county for removing
recyclable material?
The Department's answer:
The good works done already
by Floridians in recycling will
save them millions of dollars be-
cause aluminum and steel con-
tainers are exempt from the one-
cent-per-container advance dis-
posal ree. When the Department
of Environmental Protection
found that more than 50 percent
of the steel and aluminum con-
tainers in Florida were being recy-
cled, this exempted them from
the fee. The exemption reduced
the estimated number.of contain-
ers subject to the fee from 12.2
billion to 4.9 billion. This means
Floridians will not have' to pay the
b advance disposal fee on 7.3 bil-
lion containers made of steel and
aluminum. Jars, bottles, cans-
and beverage containers made of
glass, '.plastic, plastic coated
paper and mixed material are
subject to the fee.
The .Department of environ-
mental Protection will decide each
year before July 1 which contain-
ers will be exempt from the fee for
the next year because they meet
recycling goals. ,
The goal is for all containers
to meet the test and the fee to go
away. The fe is intended to en-
courage manufacturers to make
their products price. competitive
by using material which is being
recycled or to have their contain-
ers recycled. For recycling to be
effective, material must be collect-
ed, processed and made into new
products by manufacturers.

o Promote I

Manufacturers also can gain
exemptions for their products by
committing to use recycled con-
tent in their containers or pur-
chase material out of Florida's
waste stream for recycling into
other products. By buying exempt
products, consumers can encour-

Paper at Meeting
Marsha L. Player, daughter of
Grady and Katherine Player of
Port St. Joe, recently presented a
paper at the 82nd Annual Con-
vention of the Florida Nurses As-
sociation in Orlando. Her re-
search study was entitled
Families as a Source of AIDS In-
formation for School Age Chil-
dren. The findings of the study
underscored a critical deficiency
in frequency of parent-child inter-
actions about AIDS. This sug-
gests that HIV education and pre-
vention efforts targeted at chil-
dren might be more effective if
also directed through parents. Po-
tentially important strategies for
preventing the transmission of
HIV among children should in-
clude efforts to educate parents,
about HIV, the importance of dis-
cussing AIDS with their children,
and how to discuss sexual issues
with children of different ages.

A large plastic pool with pine
straw attracted my attention as I
walked in Miss April's kindergart-
en room. I asked one of the kids
what it was for. "That's for our
dinosaur eggs to hatch in!"
Well, the students spent a
couple of days making and paint-
ing these big roundish-looking
things and they buried them in
the straw so they would be nice
and warm and, lo and behold,
they began to hatch-one or two
each day! Many different kinds of
dinosaurs hatched within a
week's time.
And, to top it off, they are
studying spiders right now. The
mother spider's babies hatched
out of their nest-but-"Oh no!
Who took the lid off the spider
aquarium?" And, wonder where
all the baby spiders got off to?
Fifth Grade
Mrs. Colbert's fifth graders
have concluded their study of the
American Indians. They invited
the whole school in to visit their
teepee and observe activities and

show 'n tell.. pottery shards, ar-
row and spear heads, huts that
looked ready to live in," pictures of
all kids and their favorite activity
of fun-their Indian niasks, made
of paper mach6 arid' painted to
their liking.
Fourth Grade
Mrs. Howell's class is working
hard on academics, but also have
a goal for their annual trip to St.
Augustine in May. That also
means they are trying to make ex-
tra money by planning activities-
the latest being a T-shirt-Yes! a
Highland View HAWK T-shirt on
sale for $8 (children) and $10
(adults). The shirts are gold with
a black HAWK on the front.

gin with a big parade.

Hard work pays!
It really does! After much hard work, the Gators scored a con-
vincing win (1st of the regular season) over the Munroe Bobcats-
28-14. A lot of our fans were not there to see it, but those who were,
were thrilled to the Gators sometimes looking like the Gators of Old
as they repeatedly made big defensive plays to keep the Bobcats
