' uses approximately 1/2 million
gallons per day in its operations.
Beyer said the plant could
probably make a 100% conver-

from the canal.
There is one problem with the

Hunker Down With Kes byKesley Colbert
The Miracle of Homecoming
.Frank Hannon came by the office the other day and shared the
following excerpted remarks by General Carl Mundy, at High
,Hampton Inn in North Carolina, during the September 11th
Memorial Service he attended.
Shortly after the September 11th attack on the. United States.
the following letter appeared in. an Australian, newspaper. It is said
to have been written by a citizen of that country.
'You may have missedrit in the rush of the past week, but there
was actually a report that someone in Pakistan had published in a
newspaper kn offer of a reward to anyone who killed an American-
any Amrierican. So I thought I would write to let them know what an
American is, so they would khow when they found one.
An American is English, or French. or Italian. Irish. German,
Spanish, Polish, Russian or Greek. An Amencan may also be
Mexican, African, Indian. Chinese. Japanese, Australian. Iranian,
Asian, Arab. Pakistani, or Afghan. An American may be black, white,
brown, yellow, red, or almost anX,'other-cqlor of the rainbow. An
.. American _ma. also be a lei-rokee, Osage, Blackfoot, Navajo.
S Apache, or ofie of the-many other tribes known as Native Americans.
An American is Christian, or could be Jewish, or Buddhist. or
Muslim. In fact, there are more Muslims m America than in
Afghanistan. The only difference is that in America they are free to
worship as each of them chooses. An American is also free to believe
in no religion. For that, they will ans\w'er only to God..:not to the gov-
ernment. or to armed thugs claiming to speak for both the govern-
ment and God.
An American is from the most prosperous land in the history of
the world. The root of that prosperity, can be found in the Declaration
of Independence, which recognized the God-given right of each man
and woman-'tothe pursuit of happiness.
An American is generous. Americans have helped out just about
every other nation in the world in its time of need. When the Soviet
army overran Afghanistan 20 years ago, Americans came with arms
and supplies to enable the people to win back their country. As of
the morning of September 11th. America had given more than any
other nation to the poor in Afghanistan. America has, without argu-
ment, the best products, the best books, the best music, the best
food, and the best athletes.
Americans welcome the, best, but they also welcome the least.
.The i'tational symbcil of' America welcomes "Your tired...your
pooFr.'the Wretched Refuse of your Teeming Shores...the Homress.
Tempest Tossed". These. in fact. are the people who built America.
' Some of.them were working in the Twin Towers on the morning of
September 11th. earning a better life for their families. I've been told
that the people in the Towers were from at least 30. and maybe many
morer, countries, cultures, and first languages...including those that
.aided and abetted the terrorists.
So, you can try to kill an American. if you must. Hitler did. So
did General 'Tojo, and Stalin, and Nlao Tse-Tung. and every blood-
'thirsty tyrant in the history of the world. But in doing so. you would
S just be killing yourself. Because Americans are not a particular peo-
ple from a particular place. They are the embodiment of the human
spirit of freedom. Everyone who holds to that spirit. everywhere. is
So look around you. You may find more Americans in your land
than you thought were there. One day, they will rise up and over-
throw the old, ignorant, tired tyrants that trouble too many lands.
Then, those lands, too, will join the community of free and prosper-
ous nations. And America will welcome them!"
And so. ladies and gentlemen, as we commemorate one of the
darkest days in the history of this' wonderful land that we know to
be the greatest nation on earth, what better way to wish for its con-
tinued health. happiness, prosperity and goodness than this:
God... bless America... forever, and ever...Amen!

The Wewahitchka City Com-
mission gave final approval to its
2002-2003 city budget Tuesday
The budget reflects an
increase of just .4 percent in total
expenditures, including grants,
and an increase of 2 mills in the
property tax levy.
Once grants of nearly
$450,000 for T.L. James, Lake
Alice Park and the new public
library are backed out of the
total budget, the remainder of just
over $1 million represents an
increase in the ballpark of
$165,000-$170,000 from last
One reason for the increase in
the millage rate is a frequently
heard refrain these days: insur-
"The insurance policies we
have all jumped by about 16 per-
cent," said city manager Don
Minchew. "Also, the state revenue
sharing dropped a bit.

maintain status quo in opera-

premiums through Blue

about $330 a month to $369.77 a
The general liability insur-
ance, which accounts for all other
insurance needs for the city,
including buildings,- contents,
equipment, liability and work-
men's compensation, rose from
$47,000.and change to $53,485.
"A lot of the increase in the"
Total budget is in insurance,"
The city is also looking to the
future and the purchase of a new
fire truck this year.

Self Medication Is A
! Even physicians are far from agreement about the prac-
tice of self-medication. If everyone went to their doctors at every
sign of illness it would be impossible for the medical profession
S to handle the deluge of patients that would descend upon them.
But, self medication must be carried out wisely. One
good rule is... if certain symptoms keep returning, it is time to
have your doctor find the cause. When we notice a customer is
often buying a particular non prescription remedy we will
always suggest that they should see their doctor.

Tom and Tina Bring Show
to St. Joe Marina and Bay
by Tim Croft
One night a couple of years
ago, Tina Booker made a stop-
along the road in Eufaula, Ala.
Driving with family, they took
a break near the museum and
store operated by Tom Mann, a
longtime professional fisherman
of some note and renowned
maker of fishing lures.
It seemed like a grand spot to
drown a worm or two, so Booker
grabbed a fishing pole and snuck
over the fence onto the property.
She hadn't been casting more
than a few minutes 'when she
spied a man nearby, also fishing.
Figuring she'd found a part-
ner in line, she ambled over and
asked the man if he'd caught any-
She also wondered if they'd be
in trouble if discovered.
No sooner were the words out
of Booker's rriouth than the man's
. line tugged 'th a nibble from a
Booker, 'something of the
take-charge 'kind, instinctively
snatched the pole from the man's
hands and commenced to reel.
As the man turned to face
her, a car drove into the store's
parking lot and illuminated- his
Booker was stunned to recog-
nize the'mug .
-"Are you -who I think you
are?" she asked.
In his measured country

turned out to be none other '.than
-Mann, answered in the: affirma-
tive while lobbing a question back
"Do you know you could get'
ifi trouble fishing on private prop-
erty?" Mann wondered.
From that brief back-and-
forth: a television show was

Booker said, "and he hasn't been
S :able to run me off since."

their traveling road show a fam-

called The Tom and Tina Outdoors

They toured the area and wet

fisherman of note for nearly two
decades and has made fishing

But when he reviewed some
industry information in a nation-

fishing tackle and equipment
: :industry,. women made more than
40 percent of such purchases.
A 12-year-old boy can talk
his momma out of more fishing
tackle than he can his daddy,"
Thus he began a search for a
woman to co-host his show. He
interviewed several before, his

a dark night in Eufaula.

as a cross :between Ellie Mae
Clampett and Dolly Parton, was
the perfect combination: a looker

This is their first excursion to

the area well.

my favorite fishing holes," he said,

.PUT GULF COUNTY IN A NEW DIRECTION
HELP TOMMY MONTFORD,.
THE CITIZENS' CANDIDATE
FOR GULF COUNTY
DISTRICT 2 COUNTY COMMISSION
I have pledged :to put CREDIBILITY. HONESTY and COMMON SENSE
back unto Gulf County Government I promise to be the uinv.avenn vo.,ice for
all the residents of Gulf County I will listen .to you and .speak for you and,
NOT for special interest. '
S. Unlike mv opponent. Billy Traylor, who defeated me by a mere 29 ,otes
four years ago. I v.ill respond to the wishes and needs of Gulf County I feel
Traylor has failed to respond to the wishes on numerous occasions. ,An
example of Traylor's lack of responsible leadership was glaringly evident
when. he backtracked on the Commission's promise to allow voters to decide
by referendumt'n the proposed giveaway of some of our most beautiful beach
along Highway 9h to the St. Joe deeloper,-saying that the people sirnply
don't know'what was best for them. Tiaylor insulted them by voutin to elunm-
inate the promised referendum and hand flie valuable deal to the greedy
developers -. .....
So what happened? With Traylors help, the referendum vanished'Now,
dulf County taxpayers will lose unlimited access.to the gorgeous beach, but
they also will be saddled with more tax dollars 'to pay for a bLpass that's
adding gross.'insult to damaging injury. '
I What else will the St Joe empire want that we taxpayers will haVe to pay
As your County Commissioner from-District 2, I will fight for parity in
county funding for volunteer fire departments. The growing .Overstreet
IDepartment receives an inadequate $8,000.00 per year, while the St. "Joe
Beach Department is given $100,000. FAIR? Certainly riot. the St. Joe Beach
doesn'tt necessarily have to be reduced,, but the Overstreet properties need a
hefty increasqeto allow those dedicated volunteers to be adequately equipped
1o perform their tasks.
Then we have the credit card fiasco, with numerous employees holding
these cards that were, by law, for official'use pnly but were'.used to buy non-
governmental items. I will work for more stringent controls' over such cards
and strict, frequent auditing of their-use.
Our County Government has allowed Williams .Environmental Services
for years to truck foul smelling treated waste from Bay County into hundreds
of acres:ofproperty in our backyards. When elected,.I will attempt to stop this
practice and if county lawyers: say that cannot be done, I will-fight for,steep
dumping fees to make the practice less frifitable' and acceptable to the
dumpers'. .r ,'
i'll tell you this, fellow Gulf County citizens: Something in our county
stinks and it's not coming from the paper mill because the mill is gone.
YOUR VOTE AND SUPPORT WILL BE GREATLY APPRECIATED.

PROPOSED CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTS
TO BE VOTED ON NOVEMBER 5, 2002
NOTICE OF ELECTION
I, Jim Smith, Secretary of State of the State of Florida, do hereby give nonce that an
election will be held in each county in Florida, on November 5, 2002 for the ratification
or rejection of proposed constitutional amendments of the State of Florida:
ARTICLE I, SECTION 17
BALLOT TITLE: Excessive Punishments
BALLOT SUMMARY: Proposing an amendment to the State Constitution identical tcc
a proposed amendment to Section 17 of Article I of the Stare Constitution which was
approved by a statewide vote in 1998. The Supreme Court of Florida struck the 1998
amendment in a ruling in which four of the seven justices found that the ballot summary
was inaccurate. The proposed amendment expressly authorizes the death penalty for
capital crimes and expressly authorizes retroactive changes in the method of execution.
The amendment changes the prohibition against "cruel or unusual punishment," currently
pro'lidd in Section 17 of Article I of the State Constitution. to a prohibition against
"cruel and unusual purushment" to conform with the wordirig of the Eighth Amendment
to the United States Consttution. The amendment prohibits reduction of a death sentence
based on invalidity of an execution method and provides for continued force of th<
sentence. The amendment permits any execution method unless prohibited by the United
States Constitution. The amendment requires construction of the prohibition against cruel
or unusual punishment and the proposed prohibition against cruel and unusual
punishment to conform to United States Supreme Court interpretation of the Eighth
*Amendment to the United States Constitution. The amendment would prevent state
courts, including the Florida Supreme Court, from treating the state constitutional
prohibition against cruel or unusual punishment as being more expansive than the federal
constitutional prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment or United States Supreme
Court interpretations thereof. The amendment effectively nullifies rights currently
allowed under the state prohibition against cruel or unusual punishment which may afford
greater protections for those subject to punishment for crimes'than will be provided by
the amendment Under the amendment, the protections afforded- those subject to
punishment for crimes under the "cruel or unusual punishment" clause, as that -clause
currently appears in Section 17 of Artirncle I of the State Constitution, will be the same as
the minimum protections provided under the "cruel and unusual" punishments clause ol
the Eighth Amendment to the United States Constitution. The amendment provides for
Specifically, the proposal amends Section 17 of Article I ofthe State Constitution, to read
as set forth below. The word saieken is a deletion: words underlined are additions:
SECTION 17. Excessive punishments.-Excessive fines, cruel and er unusual
punishment, attainder, forfeiture of estate, indefinite imprisonment, and unreasonable
detention of witnesses are forbidden. The death penalty is an authorized punishment for
capital crimes designated by- the legislature. The prohibition against cruel or unusual
punishment. and the prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment, shall be construed
in conformity with decisions of the United States Supreme Court -which interpret the
prohibition against cruel and unusual punishment provided in the Eighth Amendment to
the United States Constitution Any method of execution shall be-allowed1 unless
prohibited by the United States Constitution. Methods of execution may be designated by
the legislature, and a change in any method of execution may be applied retroactively. A
sentence of death shall not be reduced on the basis that a method of execution is invalid.
In any case in which an execution method is declared invalid, the death sentence shall
remain in force until the sentence can be lawfully executed by any valid method. This
secnon shall apply retroactively

The skyline of the paper mill (1)
evolves and dwindles with each
passing week as the demolition -
work continues on schedule.
Early last week crews (2) brought
S down a lime kiln, the remnants
of which gave the appearance of
Large guns on a battleship.
Shearers (3) sliced away the last
portions of the kiln, the toppling
of which created a hole to the
ocean as seen from the ,offices of
contractor; CCC Group. Signs of
the work are found throughout
the mill site, from a fallen evapo-
rator (4) to a radiation detector
(5) erected to check rail, cars
entering and leaving the site.
The afternoon train of steel scrap
heading out has become as regu-
lar as the whistle used to be.
Sometime next month crews are
S expected to implode the last
major structures on the site. a
