Mill" Coming Down
Contractor to be Going "Full Bore" In Two hWeeks
by Tim Croft
Gov.CJeb Bush has appointed
William C. Sumner of Wewahitch-
ka to the Board of Trustees at
Gulf Coast Community College.
Sumner, 53, and the presi-
dent of Wewahitchka State Bank,
S succeeds George Duren for a term
that runs through May 31, 2006.
S" was very proud to be select-
ed," Sumner said. "It's a big role,
but I'm honored to have been
selected and look .forward to
working with the board."

nor's press office said Bush

Port St. Joe city Commis-
sioners are putting over ten acres
of property surrounding the Port
St. Joe Marina up for sale.
S-Having recently completed an
appraisal of the property, com-
missioners are now ready to see
the land start generating rev-
enues for city residents. With an
estimated total undeveloped value
of somewhere in the neighbor-
hood of $2 million, the developed
value could have a very favorable
impact on the city's coffers
through tax'revenues generated.
The property which, will be
,advertised for sale includes ten
acres of cleared property between
the exstmng marina and Baltzell
Avenue and six lots adjacent to
First Street along side the marina.,
S Another parcel-of city proper-
ty along the edge of the bay will
not be placed for sale and will
remain open to the public for fish-
inig and recreation.
The board will hold a work-
* shop on the. property Monday at
3:30 p.m. to discuss guidelines
and restrictions they will apply to
purchase of the property Among
those guidelines discussed was a
recommendation by Mayor Frank
Pate to require development to
begin within one year on any
property purchased. Other items
to be discussed will likely include
building restrictions and regula-
tions requiring an .architectural
theme similar to that of the mari-,
na complex. '
Finalized plans for advertis-
ing the sale should be completed'
.during this workshop session.

pursue the installation of some

That 'was nearly the 'case in

Friday evening. \
While trying to arrest'a drug
suspect, Nugent was taken on a

As he clung to the suspect's
open car door, with speeds
.clocked at near 60 mph, Nugent
was dragged, run over and finally
deposited, quite roughly nearly a
mile later as the suspect turned
from First Street onto U.S. 98.

McKeithen when asked if the
event was'traumatic. "It's like see-
ing one of your children or family
members dragged down the road
in a vehicle, run over and then

"It was very dramatic."
It all started with a stakeout

minutes on a possible drug deliv-

Murnan, who has lived and,

drowning back to the 1970s.
The water is .generally shallow
and clear. There is also a lack of'
'undertows and riptides that occur
at beaches such as those in Pana-
ma City and further west.
"With the natural, contour of"
the Cape we don't get the under-,.
tow," Murnan said.
"It has to get really bad,"'
almost a hurricane. with lightning
and ever.-thing to get undertows.
Then you .aren't going to go out
swimming anyway." .
Murnan said the water was a.
little choppy Friday night. but
there were no reports of under-'
tows or riptides.
"Even if you found youLrselrin

is stand up," Murnan said.

Some Changes Made
To Scallop Festival
It is Scallop Festival time
again! The 2002 Scallop Festival
should be the BEST ever.
The Scallop Comrruttee has
worked many hours to prepare for
this year's event. There are
changes this year which will
address some problems from last
year. The number one problem
last year-no scallops-has been
solved. We have scallops!
This year's festival will have
cooked and frozen scallops to offer
festival attendees. The Gulf
County Chamber of Commerce
will be the only vendor selling
scallops. They will have fried scal-
lops and french fries at their
booth at a reasonable price. These
,will be delicious to enjoy on the
spot but an added bonus for this
year-you can take frozen scal-
-lops home to enjoy later. These
-will be in five pound bags So
bring your cooler with you to take

Some local groups will be
preparing food such as gumbo,
crawfish, etc. Although food is one
of the best parts of the festival.
there will also be plenty of activi-
ties for the children. Dune Buggy

tain kids young and old. A new
feature this year will be a tractor
pull for their youngsters. Watch
for more details and information.

crafts for your shopping pleasure.
Entertainment is another
large part of the Scallop Festival

groups from out-of-town have
been lined up to entertain you.
Another change will be loca-
tion. They're moving downtown.

years so The Chamber is are
excited about helping them. They
will have some great festival items

upward. He captured a personal
best for himself when he cleared
the bar at 15-6. "It's always a good
day when, you can set a personal
record for yourself;" Gaddis said,
"but Im chasing the 16. foot mark
now. I've got the height, I just
need to do it clean in a meet."

Helping Kids Stay Organized
As the summer months wind
down, parents and children are
undoubtedly turning their atten-
tion to the coming school year
with a mixture of anticipation and
excitement, perhaps even dread. A
new school year presents fresh
challenges and lays waste to the
decidedly less frantic. summer
routine-for both parents and
children. The fact is, the "three
R's" have given way to a much
more daunting schedule of
classes, clubs, practices and
assorted extracurricular activities
for young students to navigate.
Parents can help their chil-
dren stay focused and successful
by encouraging good organiza-
tional habits. The more organized
your child's schedule is, the more
likely it is that you'll be able to
keep your own schedule.

The Gulf of Mexico,- Fishery
Management Council voted last
week to suspend longline fishing
within, 80 miles of the Florida
The intent of the action,
which passed on,a 13-3 vote, is to
aid in the recovery of the red
grouper population, which was
declared over-fished in November
"They had to come up with a
plan to replenish the red
grouper," said Peter Hood. a fish-
ery biologist with the Council in
The recommendation must
still be signed off on by the Secre-'
tary of Cdmmerce.
Before that, it will be reviewed
by the National Fisheries Service,
with the public given a chance for
comment on the proposal.
'"The earliest this thing will be'
implemented would be January 1,
I think, and it will probably take,
longer," Hood said.
He noted that-' an updated
assessment of the grouper popu-
lation in the gulf will be available '
in August and depending on what
that, assessment shows, the
"Council might need to take fur-
ther action or these (proposed)
measures may need not be so
' severe." /
While common sense mrhight
dictate holding off on' any action
until that updated assessment,.
Hood said, federal law required
the Council to reach a deadline on
making a recommendation to the
Secretary of Commerce.
The. new regulations prohibit
longline fishing in water less than
50 fathoms, or roughly 300. feet
The current guideline is ~a
depth of 120 feet.
Given: the continental shelf
formation on the state's West
Coast, the new rules would mean'

miles of shore.
That cuts longliners out of
reef fishing for stocks such as
'That's going to hurt them,"'
Within that 80 mile limit,
longliners will likely have to con-
vert to gear such as vertical lines
or rod and reels, Hood added.
The minimum size for red
grouper- will also be increased
from ,20 to 22 inches and the
recreational bag limit Jis five
grouper, only two being. red.
Currently, the bag limit is five-
with. no restriction on 'what'
species of grouper.
Further, the commercial shal-
low water quota for all grouper.
including gag, black, red, etc., will
be reduced from 9.35 million
pounds gutted weight to 7.08 mil-
lion pounds, Hood said.
The Fishery. Management'
Council action comes in the wake
of assessments showing that the
red, grouper population is about
60 percent of maximum sustain-
able yield: .
S'That's not homble and the
fish will come back if there is no
fishing," Hood said. "But that isn't.
reasonable, there is an economic
impact and we wouldn't have all
those grouper sandwiches.'
"But we need to rebuild that
population back in 10 years. It's
probably going to take longer than
10 years to: rebuild it."
Biologists estimated the cur-
rent harvest needed to be reduced
by some 2 million pounds.
'The council has been grap-
pling with this for a long time,"
Hood said. 'This allows us to bet-
ter protect the stock."
Council member Karen Bell of
A.P. Bell Fish Co. in Cortez,, how-
ever, disagreed with the panel's
"We. are putting these guys
out'of, business," she told the
Associated Press. "I know that's
what the intent here is to do -2just
get rid of them but it's wrong."
"The council also lifted a
month-long seasonal ban of com-
mercial grouper fishing .

mit holder/wildlife rehabilitator
Sea turtles, mostly logger-
head, a few green, and a
leatherback have nested and will
continue to nest on our local
beaches. The nesting count is
down from last year's and is down
all around the Panhandle of
Florida. This is also the time when
some of the nests are ready to
hatch The hatching season will
continue until October and maybe
even into the first of November,
depending on how late Mama tur-
tle made a nest.
Mature sea turtles (from 17-
25 years old) can lay eggs, with
some species laying up to three
times in a season. Mating takes.
place off-shore with the female's
clutches of eggs being fertilized in
the months. prior to laying. A
leatherback may lay her eggs as
early as March and a green may
lay as early as April. Loggerheads
will begin laying in May. All will
continue to lay through as late as
The mother 'sea turtle will
' sometimes make a false crawl,
meaning that she wasn't ready or,
she was disturbed, even going so
far as to actually dig an area and
for whatever reason, change her
mind. Once she does come ashore
to lay her eggs, she finds.the right
spot, digs with her rear flippers a
nest cavity some 2-1/2 feet deep,
depending on the turtle species,
and deposits 'an average of 115
eggs. She covers them and leaves
them to incubate in their nest for
a period of 60-65 days here in the
Panhandle. If it's cooler tempera-
tures, it may take a little longer,
for them to hatch and emerge.
The hatchlings will begin to
break the eggselle open with their
egg tooth and begin moving
around. .(As the eggs are
deposited, air spaces remain
intact inside the nest.) The move-
ment of baby; turtles inside the
nest causes the egg shells to drop
and the babies move upward in,.
the cavity. This event occurs over
a 3-5 day period. Then, it is time!
Time for the emergence! .
They usually wait until dark
and cooler temps to begin emerg-
ing. from the nest. As they come
out of the nest, many times all ot
most of them come at one time.
These two baby leatherbacks hatched last year from their nest on the beaches of Gulf Aire and are
making their way to the Gulf of Mexico.
causing what volunteers call a
frenzy! They then focus on the
horizon and crawl toward the
brightest lights on the horizon...
the stars, moon and reflection on
the water. They have ,good eye-
sight and hear the water and hone
in on the color waves of the hori-
zon. Then, into the. water they
go!!!! ; '
They swim very fast toward
the floating masses of sargasso
grasses where they will live until
at least six months ,of age, feeding
on tiny shrimp, jellyfish, crabs,
mollusks; .arid other edibles. If
they are in danger, they throw
their little flippers back over their
back and remain stiff until the
danger has gone.

special permit to monitor nesting
and hatching activities during.the

May to October 31. They will mea-

nest with, the yellow card which
quotes the law for molesting sea
turtle nests, their eggs or hatch-,
After the emergence, small
flipper prints will tell the volun-
teer how many approximately'
came from the nest.
Sometimes only 'one or two'
will come out instead of a lot of
them. This is one reason the vol-
unteers give the babies,the time of
three nights to emerge on their
own before 'they dig in a nest to
evaluate the remains. When it is
time, the nest is dug. Egg shells
are counted and .sometimes live
babies, or dead ones, and some-
times'whole eggs 'that haven't
hatched but may, or ones that will
never hatch are accounted for.,
Sometimes a whole nest can be
unfertilized and there will be no
Live hatchlings are placed in
a container on a layer of wet sand
and are released later that night.
Hatchlings have great obsta-
cles to overcome in some areas. If
the beaches are dark and no glow
shines on the beach and no other
brighter "moons" appear before
them to 'block out the natural
light of the horizon and stars and
moon reflection, they will orient
directly toward the water.
'Sometimes. whole' iests or a
few turtles move in the direction
of man-made, lighting. Two adult
turtles have disoriented on the
beaches this year, so far. Adult
turtles, can usually find their way,
unless they go across the
road......reinember the story of Big
Mama last year!

Port St. Joe Native Brings New
Marketing, Advertising Firm Home
Port St. Joe has recently
received its first full-service mar-
keting agency, Kerigan Marketing
Associates, LLC. Jack Kerigan,
Jr., a 1981 graduate of Port St.
Joe High School, describes his
company as a strategically-ori-
ented, professional marketing
firm that gains its expertise from
large clients and shares that
knowledge with smaller, local
businesses wishing to grow.
Kerigan earned a Marketing
degree at Florida State University,
where he served as Student
Government President, and later
an MBA at Nova University where
he graduated Magna Cum Laude.
His professional career began at
RJR Nabisco where he led a sales
division before entering RJR's
Brand Management Group as
head of retail efforts for the
SALEM brand nationally. He then
took the reins of Community
Coffee Company in Baton Rouge,
LA (the nation's largest family-
owned retail coffee' company) as
Director of Marketing where he'
delivered the company's first vol-
-ume growtfi in over sfx years.
Along the way, his advertising
campaigns were recognized with a
Gold Addy for national TV spot,
the Big Easy Award
Entertainment Award; and, Besf
New Website for central markets.':
Kerigan fulfilled a career
dream by launching Kerigan
Marketing Associates, LLC in
January 2001. KMA's current
client list includes Louisiana's
Audubon Golf Trail, The Island
Country Club and Clinton Bank
and Trust. He has completed pro-
jects for Kodak, Del Monte and
Seagrams. Locally, the firm pro-
vides.all marketing services to GT
Corn Telecommunications and
created the promotional video,
Discover Old Florida, for Gulf
SWith over 15 years big-brand
experience, Jack feels he has
developed a specialty in 'lifestyle
marketing'. "I really enjoy prod-
ucts where consumers make -the
purchase decision. \ith their
hearts. It's arguable as to whether
we could live without coffee, golf-
ing or even resort travel, but those
are some of the special things that
make us feel good, and I seem to
excel in that category. If someone
was marketing industrial solvents
or commercial; materials they
could find better agencies, than

New Manatee and
Marine Turtle Decals
New manatee and marine tur-
tle decals are available at tax col-
lectors' offices around the state.
The 'popular decals, .produced by
the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC),
provide an important source of
funds for the state's efforts to pro-
tect endangered and threatened
manatees and sea turtles.
This is the 11th year decals
have been created for Save the
Manatee Trust Fund and Marine
Resources Conservation Trust
Fund, Anyone donating at least.
,$5 to one of the protection pro-
grams through tax collectors can
pick up 'one of the decals.
Donations support manatee and
turtle research, rehabilitation and.
educational programs, and are an
important part of FWC's conserva-
tion efforts. Decal campaigns usu-
ally: bring in $140,000 (combined)
and are vital for funding recovery
"It's wonderful to see our
decals everywhere-on cars,
trucks, boats and trailers. It
shows everyone that protecting
Florida's manatees and sea turtles
is a high priority," David Arnold,
.chief of FWC Bureau of Protected
Species Management, said.
Arnold said the money funds
research and protection efforts;
and many of FWC's current recov-
ery initiatives would not be possi-
ble without revenue produced by
The full-color decals are
waterproof and designed to stick
on boats or other vehicles.
Two Florida eighth graders
who entered the FWC's contest
designed the manatee decal.

Succulent Yellowtail Snapper
Yellowtail snapper is one of
the tastiest fish harvested fresh
from Florida waters and is abun-
dant right now.
The name yellowtail is
descriptive in itself. The scientific
name of the. yellowtail snapper
roughly translates to "swift-swim-
hooks. After the turtle's throat
healed and it began eating on its
own, scientists tagged it and
released it into the Gulf of Mexico.
The Kemp's Ridley turtle is
the smallest of all sea turtles, It
feeds primarily oon crabs over
sandy or muddy bottoms or oyster
reefs in. shallow coastal estuaries
and bays. Kemp's Ridleys primar-
ily nest on one beach in Mexico.
After hatching, the .babies ride the,
currents to the coastal waters
around Florida. ,

Charitable Remainder Trust: No Capital Gains Tax
by: Andy Wilkinson Financial
Are low interest rates putting
the squeeze on your income? If so,
you might have considered selling,
appreciated stock, but hesitated
because of the capital gains.
Have you considered a chari-
table remainder trust? It may be a
tax-efficient way to turn an appre-
ciated asset into a stream of
income that is potentially at an
above-market rate of return. At
the same time, it would allow you
to make a significant donation to
a nonprofit organization-and
enjoy a tax deduction for your gift.
Charitable remainder trusts,
also known, as CRTs, offer philan-
thropic investors several impor-
tion. By transferring an appreci-
ated asset such as stock to a CRT,
you can convert it into more diver-
sified or higher-yielding income
investments-free of capital gains
Potentially more income.
Because the assets you'transfer to
the trust aren't taxed, the full pro-
ceeds are available for reinvest-
ment by the trustee on your
behalf. This means you may be
able to realize more income from
the asset than if you sold it your-,
self outside of a trust.
A current income tax deduc-
tion. CRT contributions are
deductible from federal (and
sometimes state and local) income
tax. Deductions are calculated on
the present value of the future
gift. Generally, the older you are
and the smaller, your income
interest, the larger your deduction

mize your charitable -gift.
Undistributed earnings or capital
gains in the trust normally accu-
mulate tax-free, allowing them to
grow faster than if they were taxed.
currently. Income is taxed -only
when distributed to income bene-
A smaller taxable estate.
Assets you transfer to a CRT are
removed from your estate. This
allows you to enjoy a. stream of
income without directly owning
the asset that produces it.
(Although the estate tax will ease
gradually through 2009, it is
repealed for only one year: 2010.
Barring further action by
Congress. it will return in 2011.)
Because the trustee provides
administration, distribution, and
recordkeepina. a CRT can be an
excellent wav to donate to a non-
profit. Prudential Bank currently.
serves as.trustee for hundreds of
CRTs, allowing the charities
involved to focus oin providing ser-
.ices rather than administering
Of course your own advisors
are in the best position to guide
you regarding potential tax and

itable remainder trust. However,'

Prepare Your Yard
for Hurricane Season
by Roy Lee Carter, County,
June 1st marked, the official
beginning of the hurricane sea-
son. Although. we haven't had a
hurricane this season it doesn't
hurt to be prepared.
The arrival of hurricane sea-
son signals the need to develop
some contingency plan. to guard
our lives and property from pow-
erful winds and flooding rains.
Ornamental plants and other
landscape objects are especially
: One of the, most important
S protective. measures is to stake
down any. new trees and shrubs
on your home grounds. By "new"
we mean anysmall trees or large
shrubs you've planted within the
past year. The stakes should be
two or three feet long. You'll need
three or four per tree. Drive them
into the soil .to a depth of 18-24
inches, slanting them away from
the tree at a 450 angle. This will
make them more secure and less
likely to be pulled but.
How far, you place the stake
from a tree will depend on its size.
A general rule is to locate the
stakes the same distance from the
base of the tree as the height
'above the ground at which you
plan to attach the guide wires. To
secure the wire and keep them
from slipping off, make notches in
the stakes a few inches from the
top of each. Then. attach wires in
these notches. and run them to a
point about two-thirds up the
Before attaching the wires to
the tree, run them through
lengths of garden .hose to protect
the bark. Now, tighten the wires
enough. to prevent excessive tree
movement, but not so tight that
they may break-or, worse yet.,
cause the tree, to break in: high,,
,inds. T : .. .
SIn addition to staking and
buying small trees and shrubs.
. you should inspect larger trees for
broken, dead, or damaged limbs.
and remove these as soon as pos-
sible. Hurricane winds can tear
such limbs from a tree. and turn
them into dangerous projectiles.
However, remember that it is not a
good idea to prune healthy,
Branches before a hurricane.
because this encourages new
growth which is very vulnerable to
wind damage. .
S;During the storm season, it is
especially important to keep roof
gutters clear of. leaves, twigs and
other debns. Drainage should be
at its best to, cope with heavy.hur-
If you have hanging baskets,
tub plants, or large potted plants
on exposed porches or patios,
they should be moved indoors
ahead of the storm. Hurricane
winds can damage or completely
destroy both exposedQ plants and
containers. Other loose items
which can be hurled about, such
as lawn furniture, garden tools,
toys.and garbage cans also should
be .brought inside before strong
winds strike. In addition to being.
severely damaged or destroyed,
such objects can become lethal
flying objects during a hurricane.,
While we all hope our state.
avoids serious hurricane damage
this season, it's still very impor-
tant to be prepared. So, check
your home grounds thoroughly.

Crust Easy for
Some believe that the name
cobbler comes from dropping a
soft dough over fruit so that it
looks rough and "cobbled".
Of course. oneoof the easiest
ways to make a cobbler is to top
fruit with a pour-on batter crUst.
This type of topping, like the one
used in Georgia Peach and Berry
Cobbler, is so easy to make that it
can be ready for the oven in just a
few minutes. The topping-made
with self-rising flour, sugar. milk
and melted butter-is just poured
over fruit and bakes up cnsp and
: There are so many ways to,
make cobblers that there has to
be one right for you. Whether you
choose a cobbler made with the,
traditional pie crust, a nch biscuit
topping or a pour-on batter, here
* are a few tips to make your cob-
*Choose ripe juicy 'fruits and
berries. When out of season.
unsweetened frozen fruits and
bernes may be substituted.
*Sugar to taste. Most recipes
make a moderately sweet cobbler,
but you mdv add sugar to taste
depending on personal preference
and sweetness of fruit.
*Serve warm. Cobblers are
delicious topped with ice cream,
heavy cream or whipped cream.
No matter which topping you
prefer, or how much time you
have for preparation, the tradi-
tional Southern cobbler stands

Flaky Pie Crust
Cobblers are usually defined
as a fruit dessert made with a
drop biscuit topping, but
Southern cookbooks can offer as
many as seven different recipes
for this simple dessert. The variety
comes not only from using differ-
ent fruits, but also from how the
crust Is made-from traditional
pie crust or biscuit dough to a
wide variety of pourable batters.
An informal survey of Southern
cooking authorities verified that
the ultimate traditional Southern
cobbler is made with flaky pie
crust baked in a large pan or bak-
ing dish. Most "pie crust cobblers"
are made with a bottom and top
crust like the Dixie Cobbler, which
may be filled with blackberries or
peaches. And some serious cob-
bler makers like to go one step
further-baking pieces of crust on
a baking sheet until brown and
crisp. and then layering these
crisp pieces of crust with the fruit
as the cobbler is assembled.
Cobblers popular in trendy
Southern restaurants are fre-
quently topped with rich biscuit
dough and are a little easier to

nificantly during the last two
decades," stated Murphy.
"With the loggerhead turtle
being our state .reptile, it: is
extremely important that we ,can
understand the relationship
between these foraging areas and
commercial fishing activities after
the summer nesting season in
order to implement management."
A similar research project was
carried out in 1998, but the
results were inclusive since two
went north and three went'south.
"We hope a larger sample size and
longer transmitter life will add to
the knowledge we have already
gained," Murphy sai. .
In conjunction with the
release, CCC's Sea Turtle Survival
League (STSL) will launch the 7th
year of its successful Sea Turtle
Program, allowing children and,
other Internet users around the
world ,to watch' the mysterious.
migrations of the five sea turtles
being tracked by satellite. Utilized'
by. people in over 22 countries,
STSL's education. program helps
students and others learn about .
the plight of endangered marine
turtles by following their move-
ments from tropical nesting
beaches to feeding ground located
hundreds of miles away.
"The Sea Turtle lMigration-
Tracking Education Program is
used in schools throughout
Florida, the United States and
world-wide and is a great example
of how science and the Internet
can be used to get students
excited about learning,", stated
Dan Evans, Education
Coordinator at CCC. Through the
STSL education program, anyone
with access to the Internet can
watch along as. scientists monitor
the mysterious migrations of
these giant creatures xith, regu-
larly updated migration maps
depicting the movements that will
begin to appear on the STSL s
In' the U.S., sea turtles nest
primarily in Florida, but Cape
Island represents the most signif-
icant loggerhead nesting beach
north of Florida, with an average
of 1,000 nests per season.
Researchers have studied the U.S.
population of loggerhead turtles
lor years, but it is sull a mystery
where they spend a majority of
their lives. Through the. use of
satellite telemetry, researchers
hope to answer that question i4n
order to better-protect the turtles
throughout their range.
To participate in'STSL's free
education program or to adoptI a
satellite-tagged turtle,' call the
STSL at (800) 678-7853 or go
