Road Bonds and Lighthouse
Top GC Commission's Agenda
Gulf County commissioners
agreed to move forward with
plans to expand their current
81.3 million road paving project
to $3.225 million by extending the
current road bond issue.
Commissioners are intending
to take advantage of several grant
opportunities and lower interest
rates to maximize paving dollars.
During Tuesday's meeting, the
board voted to advertise an ordi-
nance to issue up to $4 million in
road paving bonds.
-Gulf County Building Official
Michael Hammond reported to the
board that he and County Clerk
D.oug Birmingham had met with.
Morgan JKeegan's bonding agent
Tuesday and if all goes well the
county could'have road paving
funds from the bonds in hand
within three to four weeks. State
and federal road funds received
by the county will continue to be
earmarked to repay the bond
The current issue is due to be
paid off in 2009. The extended
agreement will add five years to
the pay-off date. The extension
does not include an extension of
the 6 local option gas tax, which
is also due to expire in 2009.

Writing On Hearts
Is Hard to Do
Everybody has their own theory as to why so many kids are
killing other kids in schools across the country.
I thought it rather interesting as I read the paper Saturday that
two different groups reviewing these deaths over the past year
('99/'00) don't agree on how many kids actually lost their lives in
school-related violent deaths. One group said the number was 16,-
while another said 31 deaths took place on or around the nation's
Whichever group is right, or if the answer lies somewhere in
between the two numbers, one killing is too many for us to toler-
ate without seeking explanations and a cure for what ails us as a
Over the last few weeks it has happened again. A few troubled
youth have carrier guns to school and fired on their classmates.
Why??? Why??? Why???
Society is crying out for an answer, looking for someone or.
something to blame for these ills. The anti-gun advocates feel they
have the answer-'Take away guns or prevent access!!!"
Indeed there should be some credence given to requiring gun
trigger locks. As a gun owner, I would suggest that we owners are
part of the problem if we can't join in' on reasonable safety mea-
sures to help insure the safety four kids and help prevent need-
less killings (accidental or intentional).
But, while we talk about the reasonable measures, we do need
to also remember that students involved in these incidents have
broken numerous local, state, and national laws just to get guns
on campus. So it's probably illogical to toss all the blame on
guns and gun owners.
United States Attorney General John Ashcroft expressed his
views recently that violent video games and entertainment aimed
at kids could also be a major contributing factor. During his inter-
view on ABC's "Good Morning America" he suggested that even the
way news media reports these incidents could possibly promote
copy cat replications.
Ashcroft is probably exactly right, too. No doubt that continu-
al exposure to violence could lead to a distorted image of right and
wrong and how to react to problems. This is especially true in,
cases where troubled youth are dealing with what they consider to
be insurmountable problems.
Yes, the news media can also bear a little of this responsibili-
ty. M aybe even a lot!!! -, ,... : -:' :-,- .
Sometimes-in 'their: (our) zeal to sensationalize a story, to he
maximum extent, thus' draw: more viewers/readers (wvhlcbf f
course, equals more dollars)-the media's reporting could surely
offer fuel for copy cat youth.
But, then again we need not forget all those other external and
internal forces that could trigger these acts-violent movies, lyrics
to "songs," parental involvement or dysfunctional family lives,' kids
being cruel to other kids, peer pressure, cults, teachers, etc., etc.,
This list could go on forever I imagine one day soon I'll
read. hear. or see where some scientist somewhere has determined
that the fertilizer used to help grow the wheat to feed the cows that
produce the milk our kids have been drinking is the true culprit in
producing these violent tendencies. .
I believe true solutions to these deep seated, problems within
our society go far beyond more laws, more rules, or more regula-'

Crack the window about three

LetterS to the Editr .
Takes Issue On Reporting
The headline article in the
March 15th, 2001, issue of The
Star once again expressed to the
citizens of Gulf County your
apparent need or wish to report
issues involving Saint Joe
Corporation slanted to their bene-
fit. This is true almost to the point
In this one article you have
taken one half of one sentence I
spoke and changed the meaning
altogether. If you will listen to the
audio tape of this meeting, the
statement I made was, "This issue
will probably come up in court
again, and I hope that the whole
truth about it will come out."-the
point being the truth coming out.
Some of these roads were
built before Saint Joe Corporation
came to this area. How did Saint
Joe Corporation have easements
on roads that were built before
they were ever here? It seems
strange to a lot of people that
three commissioners would be
meeting with Clay Smallwood,
and not a competent lawyer, on
Also, the road in question
wasn't the center line road. To
make the statement that I said the
roads were "entertainment" for
people to take their children rid-
ing on, as if that was the only rea-
son the roads should .be open,
falls short of reporting the truth. "
You may think that the people
of this county who aren't in the
"clique" are uninformed and are
not to be considered, but remem-
ber the old saying, "Everything
that goes around comes around."
The people are not fooled.
I am requesting a retraction of
your misstatements as soon as
possible. You have my permission
to print this letter in you "letters"
column, but as you haven't
printed any of my other letters, I
doubt that you will.
Parents Are Concerned
This is in response to your-
editorial about HIV testing in the
school. We agree that testing is
needed for sexually active kids,
however this should be done in a
more private atmosphere than the.
school health room. Today's kids
have enough peer pressure and
this would just add to it. As pri-
vate as this. sounds it would not
'be very private being done inside
the school system. It would be all,
over the system as, to who was
tested before the end of the day.
The schools .(and parents).
main objective is education and"
this is, exactly' what should: be
done. Teach abstinence and teach'
how to prevent this disease.
This was not a complaint, as
stated in your paper but, CON-
CERNS of the parents. There is a
difference between a complaint
.and concern and we do not think
that we. as the parents con-
cerned, had our heads stuck in,
the sand as you stated in your

Kelley that the schools did not

THE TIME. If they, have the time

Director Joe Danford was pleased
with the turn-out for Saturday's
"Amnesty Day" held at the Gulf
Some 107 residents paid a
visit to the site to dispose of vari-

sets a new turn-out record for the
yearly event, surpassing last
year's total (89) by 18 people..

Danford reported one of the

Through the cooperative
efforts of Representative Bev
Kilmer, and the Agency for
Workforce Innovation (AWI), the
agency announced March 21, that
it is. activating a "State Employee
Assistance Unit" within the state's
Re-employment and Emergency
Assistance Coordination Team
(REACT). The REACT unit is
authorized in federal, legislation
and operates with federal funds,
providing services to workers who
are or will be dislocated.
"We still don't anticipate a big
impact from all of the proposed
reorganizations," said Tom
McGurk, Director of the Agency
for Workforce Innovation. "The
Office of Planning and Budgeting
Shas looked at all state layoffs over
the past two years, and they have
found that with approximately
.4,000 state positions eliminated,
less than 50 employees statewide
have lost their jobs. Working with
Rep. Kilmer to activate this State
Employee Assistance Unit will
ensure a continued successful
"I feel this program will be,
advantageous in allaying the fears
of all state employees." Kilmer
said. "I have heard their concerns
and it is my commitment to
assure them that we will use all of
the resources we have to minimize
any job loss and to assist every
employee in maintaining gainful
Last year the REACT unit
assisted dislocated employees
from companies such as Motorola
in Boynton Beach, First Data
Phosphate in White Springs. In
addition to assisting these private
sector employees, the REACT unit
was also called upon to assist
state employees. Employees from
the Florida Department of Labor
and Employment Security were
assisted by the REACT until last
year following three layoffs that
were the result of legislatively-
mandated reorganizations. There
* were a total of 483 filled positions
that were eliminated in those
reorganizations. Working with
other state agencies and private
sector employers, the REACT unit
placed over 90% of the individuals
that were affected, and they con-

Emergency Operations Center
Commissioners decided to go
forward with plans to build a new
"Emergency Operations Center"
(EOC) to be located behind the
Gulf County Courthouse.
The approximately $1 million
hardened building is being 100%
funded by grant ,money. Board
Chairman Nathan Peters, Jr. read

lose the funds if it were moved
from the approved site, prior to

motion to build the Emergency
Operations Center building at the
During a special called meet-
ing of the board, Commissioner
Carmen McLemore had suggested
moving the site to the Industrial

stated the more central location
would work better for the county.

been established and approved by
granting authorities and it would
be cost prohibitive to move the

they did not want to lose the

The American Academy of.
Pediatric Dentistry recommends
that children see a dentist by their
first birthday. It may seem young,
but we see so many three or four-
year-old kids with problems that
could have been prevented. Going
to the dentist for the first time can
be fun and productive-if you pre-
pare your child properly.
Suggestions: Discuss the visit
with your child without frightening
him rn aking him or her aware of
the significance of the occasion for
good dental health. Think and talk -
about the dentist as a friend. AvodI.
using words like hurt, drill, pain,.,
needle, and shot.
At the end of the visit, plan
regular follow-up checkups for your
child and remember that children
get most of their impressions from
their parents. So set a good exam-
ple! Clean your teeth thoroughly at
least once a day, brush after meals
and snacks whenever possible, eat
wholesome foods, visit your dentist
regularly and most important-
have a positive attitude about den-

Say Try The ACT'
College-bound Florida 'high'
school students have a choice
when taking their college en trance
exam. and increasingly their
counselors are encouraging them
to consider the ACT Assessment.
"I think students were under
the impression that the SAT was
the test. but from information
we're getting from colleges, they
want to see scores from the ACT
as well.' explains Giselle Carlo.,
guidance director at Miramar
High School. Miramar.
Miramar -High School started
emphasizing the ACT more last'
year and counselors have been
recommending that students try
both the ACT and SAT. After stu-
dents getan assessment of how
they did on .oth- tests, they can
get a feel for which test'they want
to repeat to get a higher score,'."
Carlo says. .
.. The ACT consists of four tests
, in English. mathematics, reading.
and science reasoning. Many stu-
dents feel comfortable with the
, ACT because it tests them over
subjects they have learned in high
school. Working with their coun-
selorp., students can use their test
scores to pinpoint areas they need
to strengthen. '
"I think the ACT gives stu-.
dents a better understanding of
their skills." says Carlo.
Students at River Ridge.High
School.in New Port Richey also are
,encouraged to consider the ACT.
Guidance edunselor -- Monica
Obesso says 'she remembers tak-
ing both the ACT and SAT not too
many years ago. "I remember
scoring much differently on' the
two tests, so I encourage students
to take the ACT. Some students
just nrail one test and'not the
*The way I see it, the ACT. is
molded for what people learn in
school," she says. "When I took
the ACT, I noticed the science and
English tests and thought, this is'
a lot more like school."
Obesso also likes the informa-
tion provided by the ACT results,
and she used it to help guide stu-
dents. In addition to academic
informaftion,'the-test provides stu-
dents with career planning infor-
mation based on their interests. "I
like how the. ,score sheets profile
students' interests and what they
need for certain careers."

usually in their sophomore year.
PLAN is very, similar to the ACT

skills at a sophomore level.

Following the Lord is a hard life.
There's nothing easy or sissy
One who followed Him bravely
met with an accident, and just
before he went home to heaven
he said to his father, "Tell the
brethren, wherever you meet
them, to stand up for Jesus."
Inspired by those dying words,
a man of God wrote the song,
"Stand up, stand up for Jesus, ye
soldiers of the cross; lift high His
royal banner, it must not suffer
Few can be famous, but all can
be faithful. Few can be stars, but
all can stand up for the Lord. Dare

"Truth" Advertising Credited with Lowering Teen Smoking Rates
Florida's edgy "truth" adver-
tising campaign continues to have
a significant impact in reducing
teen smoking, a team of
researchers from Florida State
University concluded in a new
study that examines the impact of
the state's anti-tobacco advertis-
The "truth" campaign is
reaching Florida's teens at
unprecedented rates-94 percent
of the teens surveyed, ages 12-to-
17, confirmed awareness of the
campaign overall, according to the
latest Florida Anti-tobacco Media
Evaluation (FAME) survey, just
released by the Florida
Department of Health, Division of
Health Awareness and Tobacco.
The FAME survey reports on
the 30th month of the "truth"
advertising campaign. The survey
was conducted in October. The
survey team, led by FSU Professor
David Sly, the senior media evalu-
ation consultant at the Centers
for Disease Control, included
Sarah Ray and Gary Heald from
the FSU Center for the Study of
Nearly two-thirds of 1,810
survey respondents claim the
"truth" television advertisements
have prompted them to think
about whether or not they should
smoke, and one-third have talked
about the advertisements with
their friends. The results are
equally impressive across geo-
graphic and ethnic lines.
"The truth's edgy humor and
rebelliousness against Big
Tobacco's marketing tactics
appears to have worked with
teens," Sly said. "There can be no
doubt of the success of the televi-
.sion program or its role in the
downward trend in teen smoking

advertising elements of the
Florida "truth" campaign, the
American Legacy Foundation
(ALF) national anti-smoking cam-
paign and tobacco industry spon-
sored campaigns. Industry-
produced anti-tobacco and indus-
try promotion advertisements
appear to be least successful in
reaching Florida adolescents,
according to the FSU study. Dr.
Sly added that there is also
emerging evidence that industry
promotional -advertising is creat-
ing a backlash against tobacco
companies. '"The advertising clut-
ter created by the tobacco compa-
nies is hurting their credibility
with teenagers," Sly said.
The survey results demon-
strate the "truth' campaign,. is
reaching teen non-smokers, for-
mer smokers and current smok-
ers. The greater the awareness of
"truth" advertisements, the
greater the anti-tobacco atti-
tude/belief among Florida youth,
the study concludes. The most
favorable responses to the "truth"
campaign came from nonsmokers
and smokers who, wish to stop
smoking or .who have doubts
about their smoking.
The less positive or negative
response to the advertisements
came ,from those who are commit-
ted, to smoking.
The FAME study also exam-
ined the impact, of household and
family relationships on teens'
anti-tobacco attitudes/beliefs and
cigarette use. ,
Families that provide children
with opportunities to interact with
adults inhibit youth tobacco use,
the survey found. Where family
members actively monitor chil-
dren's behavior, fees are more
likely to .have anti-tobacco atti-
tudes and lessL likely, .to use
tobacco. Generally, there is a
strong correlation between engag-
ing inr other risk behaviors and
cigarette use, though it's not clear
if cigarette use precedes or follows
engagement in other risks. ''
Overall, the prevalence of
smoking has, declined during the
advertising campaign's two'year

Pursuant to the provisions of 5USC 605(b). the Administrator, to whom authority has been delegated
by the Director. Federal Emergency Management Agency, hereby certifiess that the proposed flood elevation
determinations, if promulgated, will not have a significant economic inimpact on a substantial number of small
entities. A flood elevation determination under Section 1363 forms the basis for new local ordinances, which.
If adopted by a local community, will govern future construction within the floodplain area. The elevation
determinations, however, impose no restriction unless and until the local community voluntarily adopts flood-
plain ordinances in accord with these elevations. Even if ordinances are adopted In compliance with Federal
standards, the elevations prescribe how high to build in the floodplain and do not prohibit development. Thus.
this action only forms the basis for future local actions. It Imposes no new requirement: of itself It has no eco-
nomic Impact. .
Proposed base flood elevations along flood sources studied In detail are shown on the Preliminary
Revised Flood Insurance Rate Map. Lessees and owners of real property in the unincorporated areas of Gulf
County are encouraged to review these maps and related mpaterials at the address cited above. The proposed
base flood elevations are as follows:
