Hunker Down With Kes byKesleyColbert
Second Kicking of the
Mule Hurts Worse
Than The First
I caught. an editorial cartoon in a Georgia weekly
paper recently that showed a-stick drawing of Jimmy
Carter behind a booth labeled "Opinions by Jimmy_
Carter, 5 ." In the foreground a young lad offered his
comment on ex-president Carter's. entrepreneurial
skills- "You might be overpriced."
About this same time I received an email entitled
"Jimmy Carter and,the Kicking Mule."
Republican Party Chairnian Al Cardenas said in
his note, "Being from the South, Carter should recall
an old Southern adage: "There ain't no lesson in the
second kick of the mule."
In.my humble opinion, Smriling Jimmy has gone
off and embarrassed the whole Hahira organization
,with his recent visit' to Cuba. The national news
media jumped on this event like a kid with a new toy.
The mystique of filming; in Castro's Cuba was more
than they could stand. They had to fully expose view-
ers stateside to Carter's propaganda blitz:
I, for one, was a little confused as to why a former,
president would jump across the pond to' Cuba ard
in, essence send the world a message on American
policy which directly contradicts current and past
policies. This policy, for the most part, is bi-partisan,
and dates backto 'the .'60s.
Any of our friends and foes around .the ,world who
saw and heard what Carter had to say must have
been confused with these mixed signals. His efforts.
directly contradict the foreiri policy of: the veryI
country in which he used to stand as leader.
Carter's trip "sugar coated" Fidel Castro into a
dictator that seemed alniost palatable enough for
this country to open its arms in acceptance of him.'
The truth of this ruthless dictator's reign has been
well documented. Even his own people will board
almost anything that will float, paddle, sail or motor
Them to the land of the free.
Countless lives have been lost while crossing
these waters of.freedom. It would be wonderful for
the relations to be mended between our countries,
but we can't put on ,blinders and ignore Castro's
If Castro wishes to-mend those fences, I believe he"
would find our country ready to respond. But that
response must be predicated on concrete evidence of:
change in the Cuban regime. Castro could start, by
allowing his fellow countrymen the same rights and
freedoms 'that Carter demonstrated when ,he made
this trip. ,
Furthermore, if Castro would allow the same
media that followed Carter around to roam free in his'
country and film and report what they want, when
they want,, where they want and how they want, then
I'll be convinced he's serious about extending the
hand of friendship.

During his visit Jones item-

"I would suggest the National
Register proposal focus on two
areas of significance," Jones
wrote in his letter. ,
"One would be architecture.

is the engineering elements .of

good acoustics and permitted the

In an aside, Jones' mention of
the street ties in with an overall
impression he offered during his
visit that the downtown section of
Reid Avenue could qualify for des-
ignation as a historical district.

the proposal for inclusion on the
The other area of focus, Jones
wrote, "would be .entertainment,,
that should outline the movies,%
plays, community events and
traveling vaudeville shows the
theater offered the community."
The historic context,. Jones
continued, "is important because
you want to-define the :role the
theater played in the community."
The time frame -for jumping
through all the hoops to secure a
listing on the- National Register,
Jones indicated, could be as little
as a year.

It wasn't as high as Jones had
guessed or desired he was rated
the ninth-best prospect in Florida

given indications he could go as

upon closer examination the
choice had plenty of upside.

(10) and was second behind team-
mate Rish (41) in RIBI with 37.

Richard Bowes, who coached
Jones and Rish on several sum-

can run.. He has a lot of tools. I
always thought he had the poten-

be aware of bonding-the latest
technique available to improve
broken, chipped, cracked, mal-
formed, spaced or stained
Bonding was introduced in
the mid 1950s when, an adhe-
sive material was developed to
repair fractured teeth. Dentists
can now mix the plastic into a
paste, tint it to match the teeth,
and use it to fill in broken,
chipped or cracked teeth or to
-coat discolored teeth.
The composite resin is
shaped to re-form parts of the
tooth. It is then hardened by a
brief exposure to an ultraviolet or
In some instances, the den-
tist may choose to bond laminate
veneers (thin plastic or acrylic
shells) to front teeth to, mask
chips, gaps, or discolorations.
The laminates have proven
effective in restoring the appear-
ance of teeth discolored by tetra-
cycline. The bonding process is
completely painless and can
.often be provided in a relatively
short time; often in only one visit.

Please do not forget that
report cards are available Monday
through Thursday from 7-4 until
we mail them out. Also, with the
report cards one will find FCAT
scores, a Gulf County Scholarship.
Program application, and a
newsletter. Please note that the
times listed above are our sum-
Since the FCAT scores in their
entirety are in and with the new
standards now in place, we see
that our students have done bet-
ter than we had first believed. And
compared to other districts, espe-
cially districts of comparable size,
one can see that Gulf County has
done a great job.
r As far as our school grade is
concerned, it is a very compli-
cated formula. The method
behind it is to show the growth of
individual students. Therefore, as
we see that students move from
Level One to Level Two or Level
Two to Level Three, for example,
we. gain plus points and our
school grade goes up. They are
also looking at having high
achieving students, maintaining
high numbers in Levels 3, 4, & 5,
and having a high percentage of
students tested. From what I: can
tell, we.have a real good chance of
improving upon last year's grade.
.With the game rules changing
so often, our emphasis from year-
to-year can help us only if it aligns
itself with the emphasis from the
state. If you recall the first year
their concern was discipline and
attendance. We made our school
goals along those lines-and they
dropped those from the school
grades. Then we. emphasized the
percent tested. That became only
a blip on the screen when it 'was
all figured out. This year we
emphasized reading and writing-
along with getting all 10th graders
moving in the right direction. The.
result is better scores; however,
are they good enough? Bottom'
line, we need 380 points to get a B
and 320 to get a C. How about
410 for an A? We'll see....
A few of our students really
distinguished themselves on the
FCAT. Tenth graders ,who did

Remember that there is no

Discover Advantages of REITs
By: AndyWlkirso .Firtanlcial
If today's uncertain'riiarkets

invest, consider, a -real estate
investment trtist (REIT). A REIT
can help diversify -your portfolio;
pffer steady -current income as
ivell as- provide a hedge against
Inflation. Butl what exactly is a
REI? If;. you're like: .,most.
: ivvetors., you may, not.be. familiar
Sit hi REITs" and 'the ''relative
/ dvantages,.they-n.ight.provide for
S' our portfolio: ----
Origins of REITs
The originss of the real estate
investment trust, or REIT Ipro-
S ncunced "reet') date back to the
1880s. I iestors in REITs at hat
time could eliminate doubuletaxa-
S tion because trusts were not.taxed
at the corporate level if income
was distributed to beneficiaries.
This tax advantage was later
reversed in the 1930s. After WWIl
tl e demand for real estate sky-
rocketed hnd in' 1960 a real estate
investment trust tax provision
S. was enacted which established
special tax considerations qualify-
S ing REITs as pass through entities
eliminating the double taxation of
dividends. This legislation pro-
ided small investors 'with the
opportunity to participate in the
investment returns from large-
Ssale, income-producing real
estate. REITs were popular for a
time in the 1970s and in the
1980s. were used primarily as a
tax shelter which created an- envi-
ronment of overbuilding. Tax
reform legislation passed in 1986
and 1993 eliminated use of REITs
as a tax shelter vehicle and new
REIT offenngs were structured to
meet.the needs of individual
investors:- .. f -
, Today's REITs are publicly
l traded companies that own and
manage,, otnome producing real
'estate "fcfh as office buildings.
hotels, retail malls or apartment
buildings. There are three types of
REITs: equity, mortgage and
hybrid. Equifty REITs invest in
and own properties and represent
the vast majority of all REITs.
Shares .of REITs are primarily
traded on major exchanges which
makes .themti highly liquid and
easier to'buy and'sell than it
would b;e:to biTy or sell real estate
through direct ownership.. REITs
typically have no minimum or a
very low minimum initial invest-
ment that allows individuals to
invest:; in. a professionally man -
aged portfolio of real estate prop-
As of December 2001. accord-
. ing to the Nauonal Association of
Real, Estate Investment Trust,
there, were 182 publicly traded
REITs with a combined market
value of S155 billion.: ,
Benefits of REITs
One 6f the most attractive fea-
tures of REITs is that most do not
pay'corporate income tax to. the
Internal Revenue Setrvice.
Additionally, most states honor
this treatment and do not require
REITs td pay state income tax.
This enables a REIT to pass most
of itsincome on to investors in the
form of dividends. In fact. as of
2001 the' law specifies that in
order to qualify as a REIT. it must
pass at least 90 percent of its tax-
able income on to shareholders in
the form of dividends. ,,
As investments, REITs pay
among the highest dividends.
Between 1995 and 2000. the aver-
age dividend yield on REITs was
7.3 percent (significantly higher
than yields of most stocks paying
dividends. These dividends come
primarily, from the relauvely sta-
ble and predictable stream of con-
tractual rents, paid by the tenants
that occupy REITs properties.
And. unlike interest payments on
bonds, rental rates tend to rise
during periods of inflation. Thus.
the dividends from REIT stocks
are protected to a degree from the
long-term corrosive effects of
inflation and rising prices.
Additionally, it is important to
note that REITs are total return
investments that provide high div-
idends as well as the potential for
moderate, long-term capital
appreciation based upon appreci-
action f. the underlyingg properties.I
According to Ibbotson Associates,
REIT stocks registered a com-
pound annual return of 12.4 per-
cent from 1981 to 2000 compared
to 12 percent.. for government
bonds. 13.3 percent for Ibbotson's
Small Stock Index and 15.7- per-
cent for the S&P 500. Past perfor-
mance is no guarantee of future
In addition to their potential
to provide relatively high current
income and moderate .capital
appreciation. REITs represent a
strong source of diversification for
a wide'range of investment portfo-
lios. Research done by lbbotson
and Associates demonstrated a
lowt' correlation of 'REIT returns
with those of other equities as well
as long-term bonds. This makes
the case for inclusion of REITs in
investment portfolios as a hedge
against the volatility and under-
performance of other securities.
Over the long haul. REITs offer
the benefits of diversification by
boosting returns and reducing
Consider REITS for your
If you decide to add REITs to
your portfolio, be discriminating.
You should apply, the same careful,
analysis in purchasing a REIT
that you would to any other finan-
cial investment. To determine
which REITs may be- appropriate
for your financial goals. speak
with a qualified finnacial advisor

St. Joe Commercial, the com-
Smercial development arm of the
St. Joe Company, forecasts signif-
icant retail development in Florida
sees increased retail development
throughout the state that will get
under way this year and next.
'The apparel industry is hurting
ahd apparel retailers are feeling
the brunt of that, but other retail
development sectors are poised to
come back strong and. many of
them' have already started that
cycle," Herring said.
Wal-mart Stores and Target
are among the most active in the
state, Herring said. Grocery and
drug stores, which prefer smaller
anchored centers, continue to be
active. Herring said development
of lifestyle centers has declined
somewhat due to apparel industry
woes. "Florida is effected more by
population growth than the,
national economic cycle," said
Herring. "People are still moving
into the state and all the economic
projections show that will con-
tinue for the foreseeable future,"
he said. "The quality of life here is
good, people can afford to buy
homes and this is a desirable
Herring said community
developers should be wary of the
current trend to develop town
centers. "There is a lot more to a
town center than. a grocery store
and a few shops," said Herring. "A

Sea Turtle Alert!
by Barbara Eells!
The sea turtles are off-shore
now and soon mature females will
come ashore once, maybe, twice
and, sometimes three times this
season to bury their clutch of eggs
in a -nest cavity on our sandy
The turtle nesting season
begins May 1 and ends the 31st of
October, although a leatherback
may nest as early; as March and a
green .as early as April. The log-
gerhead is the most common in
our area with some greens mostly
on St. Joseph's Peninsula. The
sea turtle will generally come back
to the area where she emerged as
a hatchling some 20-25 years ago.
She will come ashore, dig her nest
hole and deposit some 100+ eggs,
cover them and return to the Gulf
This season, as they have for
the past twelve years,the Gulf and
East Bay Sea Turtle Patrol, Inc.,
will survey the beaches looking for
"crawls" of mother sea turtles. The,
volunteers cover the area from
Indian Pass to Cape San Bias
East and from Palm Point to the
Tyndall boundary. They will deter-
mine if there is a nest or a false,
crawl, set the nest with self-
releasing wire and stake it, wrap-
ping yellow or red ribbon around
the nest and carding it. The card
will give viewers the law regarding
nesting turtles and hatchlings.
As the nest of eggs
approaches hatchtime, it will be
very important> for the public to
keep lights off near nests and con:-'
sider changing to turtle-friendly
lighting. This one thing is the
cause of deaths toour hatchlings.
Once the hatchlings emerge
from, the nest, they orient them-
selves with the magnetic force
field of Earth and then head to the
vast horizon that is filled with
stars and .moonlight-toward their
natural en\vronment. the water.
They will make it barring natural

Grant Benefits Child
A grant' of $361,988 from the
U.S. Department of Transporta-
tion's National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration will help
implement child passenger pro-
tection programs in Florida. These
programs are designed to prevent
deaths and injuries to children,
educate the public concerning the
proper installation of child
restraints, and train child-pas-
senger-safety personnel on proper
child restraint use.
,Approximately 20 to 25 per-
cent of children ages one through.
15 years old ride' unrestrained,
placing them at more than twice
the risk of death and injury as
those restrained. Motor vehicle,
crashes ;remain the leading cause
of unintentional injury-related
deaths among children for every
age from four to ,14 years.
,; Child safety seats, when used
properly, are the most effective
safety, devices in cars. They
reduce. the risk of' fatal injury by
71 percent for infants and 54 per-
cent for toddlers' in passenger
About 80 percent of children
who are placed in child safety
seats are improperly restrained,
and adult safety belts do not ade-
quately protect children ages four
to eight from injury in a crash.
Through grants, like this, the state
will help parents do a better job of.
transporting their children safely.
Wilh this grant Florida may
fund activities such as child
safety seat checkpoints at safety
events and during enforcement
efforts; permanent fitting.. sta-
tions; loaner programs;. education
and information outreach to
rural, low-income and minority
commilunities; education and
training activities targeted to
Native American tribes and chil-
dren with special needs; ,educa-
tional outreach to elementary and
secondary_ schools; promotion of
child passenger training; and
trainingg and 'education for judges
to promote enforcement.
