Hospital ER to




be Closed Down


~ ~ ~ ~ fa o Y1EL .U1LEL' -~~E' JJ


Municipal Hospital had good
news and bad news during the
week, as a new service was
inaugurated to aid the patient
and a decision by the hospi-
tal's governing board made
the decision to close down the
Emergency Room on April 1.
The decision to close the
Emergency Room came in a
special session Tuesday night,
following a notification by
doctors in the city that they
would no longer cover the
operation of this service after
April 1 of this year. The
doctors said they were discon-,
tinuing their services as a
result of malpractice insur-
ance expenses -and require-
ments and because the duty
was becoming too demanding,
along with their regular office
work.
ALTERNATIVE
Hospital Board chairman,
Gerald Sullivan told the Board
Tuesday night that he and
Administrator David Dunham
had discussed the problem at-
length and the only solution to
the problem they could come
up with was to hire doctors to
cover the Emergency Room
service.
Sullivan told the Board,
"Doctors are available for this


Daredevils I

It takes some sort of a dare-devil to climb up
on the roof of Port st. Joe High School to make
roof repairs as these men are doing. The photo at
right shows the type material the men are
spraying on the roof. The project was made
necessarywlhen Hurricane Eloise ripped off a
section 'f the roof coating. ....... ."
It doesn't look like a very dangerous job
from this photo, but that dome roof is a long way
from the ground. The men don't get up there to
do their work unless it is perfectly dry and
without their safety ropes firmly in place.

service. The only catch in the
plan is that it will cost the
hospital $20.00 per hour to
maintain the service on a
24-hour, seven day a week
basis. We just don't have that
kind of money at this time".
Sullivan reported that the
hospital could hire doctors for
the duty for week ends only at
a cost of around $65,000 a
year. "It will cost us $175,000 a
year to hire them for full time
coverage", Sullivan reported.
DECISION TO CLOSE
With the decision by the
doctors to resign from emer-
gency room duty and the
expense of hiring' special doc-
tors, the Board felt their only
alternative was to plan now to
close the Emergency Room on
April 1. All the local doctors
said they would offer an
emergency service for their
own patients on a call-out
basis after the April 1 dead-
line, but that they would not be
available on a full time basis
to care for all emergencies
brought to the hospital.
Hospital Administrator, Da-
vid Dunham reported to the
Board that the emergency
room generates approximate-
ly $3,000 to $4,000 in revenue
per month,, with most of the

Juvenile


Breaks In


School
A male juvenile has been
turned over to the Department
of Youth Services by the Port
St. Joe Police Department for
breaking into the office com-
plex of Port St. Joe High
School last Friday night.
'Principal Ken Herring had
gone to his office to do some
work during the basketball
game Friday night, when he
heard a banging on an outside
window in one of the darkened
offices. On investigating, he
saw shadows on the outside,
banging on the window with an.
object.
Herring went back into the
gym and told what he had seen
to Superintendent Walter Wil-
der and Auxiliary Police offi-
cer Robert Bryant. Bryant
went outside the building,
while Wilder stood at the door
of the office where the break-
in was being attempted. Her-
ring went to the light switch to
turn on the lights and there
was the culprit, standing in
the room. He had broken one
of the unbreakable windows in
the building to gain entrance.
City Police were called to
make the arrest, with Her-
ring, Bryant and Wilder de-
taining the boy until the police
arrived.


sently, the County buries its
garbage in several land-fill'
operations throughout the
county, all but one of which
has been termed inadequate
by the DER.
Williams reminded the
county representatives, "You
have until July of this year,
:under the law, to have an
Sapprovdd system in operation.
Since you have not yet started


to plan, you obviously cannot
comply with the law". Wil-
liams said, "We can give you
an additional year, providing
you are doing something by
July 1". The tone of Williams
statement left the indication
that a year was all the grace
period the county would get.
Williams told the group that
there were now two possible
alternatives to disposing of the


garbage in a manner which
would meet acceptance by the
DER. One of these methods is
to erect a compactor station in
the south end of the county
where all garbage from the
south end of the county would
be compacted and trucked to
the Buckhorn land-fill site
north of Wewahitchka. The
Buckhorn site is the only fill
site in the county approved by
the state.
The alternative,, incinera-
tion, would be impractical for
a county this size, Williams
said. He estimated the com-
pactor system would cost the
county approximately $250,000
but said its operation, once
installed, would probably be
less than the present method
of transporting a tractor
throughout the county each
day to cover all sites.
HIGH WATER TABLE
The big problem for gar-
bage disposal in Gulf county is
the high water table.
New regulations, developed
by the DER sets out require-
ments as to how high above
the water table garbage can
be buried. Here in Gulf coun-
ty, if garbage or anything'else
is buried; it's buried in water.
Requirements are that. gar-
bage be buried no deeper than
five feet above the water table
or that a de-watering system
be put in operation around
each land-fill site which will
not meet the standards.
The county will continue to
wrestle with this problem
which may get smellier than
their garbage before a solu-
tion is arrived at.

City Gets Good Report


Tuesday night's City Com-
mission meeting was sort of a
"blah" meeting so far as
interesting news was concern-
ed, but the Commission did
take care of several small
items of interest.
The annual audit report was


available, from the auditors,
Ernst and Ernst of Jackson-
ville.
The auditors gave a good
report on the condition of the
City's record and care of its
money matters. There were
no criticisms of the manner or


method of maintaining rec-
ords in the manner they
should be. In the words of the
audit, "In our opinion, the
financial statements listed in
the aforementioned table of
contents present fairly the
financial position of such

SPresident Carter is getting set to

Statement) and for a trading session
with the Soviets in arms reduction
and control.
It seems the prime items to be

From what we read, our Cruise
Missile is about our only real threat

words which are unrecognizable
after a Yankee gets through pro-
nouncing them.
It's easy to see why both
sections of the country have their
own peculiar way of talking. In the
North, the Yankee has to say his
words in a hurry because it's always
cold up there.L Witness this past
winter, when a decent-size Southern
drawl word would have frozen
before it was half said. That's the
reason for the short Yankee words,
they say them in a hurry or use a
verbal short-hand so they can get
most of the word said before it
freezes.
Now, down here in the South, we
have all the time in the world to say
what we want to say, so we take our
time in doing it..The words, like the
Southern weather, sound warm and
soothing: None of your cold, clipped
words for us.
If the White House doesn't
understand Southern talk it's high
time they were educated.

miles to a pinpoint target. That's a
substantial weapon in anybody's
arsenal.
President Carter is getting ad-
vice from every angle not to trade
off the Cruise missile. From what we
read, we think this is good advice.
The President is to be com-
mended for being determined to
come up with some sort of agree-
ment which will further reduce the
possibility of war between these two
powerful nations. We feel he will
have enough expertise at his com-
mand from his mule trading back-
ground to get concessions without
stripping our nation of its defense
capability. We certainly hope so.

ETAOIN SHRDLU

By WESLEY R. RAMSEY

I_______ ______


this time of the year like Washington does.
We caught the plane back home at 5:05 the
same afternoon, for a fast trip. The only bad
thing about the trip was that we stayed in
meetings with EPA officials all day and didn't
have time to eat a nice juicy steak at the expense
of you local tax payers. All we had time for was
breakfast when we got there and a sandwich
during the afternoon.
The trip back was the first time I had ever
flown into Eglin and the Okaloosa County air
terminal. That was an experience.
The plane lands at a runway on Eglin Air
s:rFeeiiBaseAuthea.ltaxixes ''cross' a Mighwaay, a
,.r::railr6ad track and then'~ilrugh'ti~eood -i'0 a
couple of hundred yards to the air terminal.
There was no train coming and two cars stopped
and let us cross the road. There was a man in the
woods chopping fire wood as we taxied past.
Luckily a deer didn't run across in front of the
plane.

Now I know it's spring... one of my sons just
came by and borrowed the fertilizer spreader.
That's one good thing about having children
-especially grown children-by the time it gets
around to the time of year when yard work
should begin in earnest, there won't be a tool left
at the house to do it with. That's one of the best
excuses in the world for putting it off.

I saw in the papers the other day where a
researcher has made a study on the modern
excuse that if a couple lives together for a while
before they, get married, they can find out
whether they' are compatible or not. This
researcher says this isn't so. He said the divorce
rate is just as high among those who lived,
together for a period of time before tying the
nuptial knot as with couples who have not tried
the cohabitation bit.
Well, back to the old think tank and start the
search all over again for another reasonable
sounding solution to thwart society. Or maybe
we can expect all those who are so inclined to
band together and refute the findings of the
researcher. The current excuse sounds as good
as any and there's only one other expert opinion
against the 'practice. What's only one expert
voice, along with those millions of narrow
minded people who still consider cohabitation as
living in sin, against the experience of thousands
who have tried it?


Lastly, I have to report that the Post Office
Department is now making a profit and most
mail gets to its destination when it is supposed to.
This revelation comes straight to us from the
Post Office itself. It seems that now, 65,000
employees less than two years ago and millions
of pieces of mail more per day has helped the
Post Office to become more efficient and
actually operate in the black for the last three
quarters.
The Post Office Department is now saying it
appears as if an increase in the postage rate is
not now needed in order to reduce a deficit in *
operations.
This cheery news came about just before
Congress was to consider removing its status as
a private corporation and make it once more, a
child of Congress with that august body as its
boss.
Whatever the reasons for the Post Office
becoming self supporting and dependable, it is
welcome news even though it is over 100 years
late in coming.


After weeks and months of talking about the
bad weather which it has been our misfortune to
have, it is at last a pleasure to talk about the good
weather we are having. At least we were having
good weather as the past week was winding
down. The sun was shining, the air crispy in the
morning and warm at mid-day and the sun
shining brightly. That's the way it's supposed to
be here in Northwest Florida during the winter
time.
If the water will just warm up a little bit now,
it will be shaping up to go spring bass fishing
before you know it, and.I am ready for it.

To celebrate the advent of good weather
once again, we took a trip to Atlanta last
Thursday on City business, to meet with the EPA
concerning permits for the City's sanitary
department. We had to get up at 5:00 in the
morning, which is definitely against my princi-
ples, and catch one of those Southern birds to
Atlanta for a mid-day meeting.
You know about Atlanta; James Kilpatrick
calls it "Washington, D.C. South". That pretty
well describes it, except for the fact that the city
doesn't have tulips blooming all over the place at

Bicycle deaths were down 16

S Colonel Eldrige Beach, Pa-
trol Commander said, "Pre-
liminary figures for 1976 show
that 58 persons were killed
S while riding pedalcycles as
against 67 for 1975. This
includes bicycles, tricycles
and mopeds. The legislature
defined mopeds as bicycles,
therefore they cannot be
counted with motor vehicle
t deaths. "
He continued, "We are ex-
tremely pleased that pedal-
ecycle deaths have dropped for
ithe third straight year; how-
.Pves, we are not sure of the
:eason for the drop in deaths.
t could be better riding habits
:nd more care by drivers of
pinotor vehicles and there may
Ebe a small drop in bicycle
popularity in some areas."
In conclusion Beach asked
that parents and officials
,"make every effort to see that
Small children are taught
proper and safe methods of
riding their pedalcycles."

School

Volunteer

Month

The Gulf County School
Board, in conjunction with
Governor Reubin Askew,
has proclaimed February
as School Volunteer Month
to focus attention on the
more than 21,000 school
volunteers who have con-
tributed significantly to the
extension and enrichment
of the education of our
youth while utilizing and
serving a broad spectrum
of Floridians of all ages,
interests and backgrounds.
The volunteers serve in
many capacities in the
various schools throughout
the state and offer a valu-
able service to the educa-
tion of young people
throughout the state.


The bride-elect is a 1976
graduate of Seminole County
High School. She is presently
employed at Our Flower and
Gift Shop.
The bridegroom's grand-
parents are Mrs. Vallie Ken-
nedy of Port St. Joe, and the
late W. M. Kennedy of Don-
alsonville, and the late Mr.
and Mrs. R. J. Bodiford of
Chipley.
Mr. Kennedy is a 1976
graduate of Seminole County
High school. He also attended
Port St. Joe High School, and
is presently employed at
Patchogue Plymouth in Bain-
bridge, Georgia.
The wedding will take place
on. Saturday, April 23, at
half-past six in the evening at
the Friendship United Metho-
dist Church, Donalsonville,
Georgia. The reception will
follow in the church social
hall.
No formal invitations are
being sent, but all friends and
relatives of the couple are
invited to attend.


"Find the Children" Program


SServes As Educational Aide


The "Find the Children"
program, now in its second
year, is one of 18 in a statewide
campaign to identify, screen
and maintain information
about handicapped children,
0:21 years of age, who are not
being served by the public
school system.
This district's project,
serves the exceptional chil-
dren of Bay. Calhoun, Frank-
lin, Gulf, Holmes, Jackson,
Liberty and Washington coun-
ties.
As developed by the Florida


Regional Diagnostic and Re-
source System for Exception-
al Students, "Find the Chil-
dren" wants to know about
children who are physically
handicapped, mentally re-
tarded, deaf or hard of hear-
ing, blind or visually impair-
ed, emotionally disturbed,
speech impaired, learning
disabled, and who are not
currently being served by the
public schools.
Funded by a grant through
the Federal Assistance for the
Education of the Handicapped


Act, "Find the Children"
hopes to reach these unserved
exceptional children through
use of the news media, coop-
eration with school personnel,
physicians, state and private
agency personnel and others
in the district who are in a
position to know about a
handicapped child in need of
school services.
When a child is identified,
'indepth diagnostic evalua-
tions, including medical and
psychological, will be com-
pleted. Attempts will be made


to place the child in an
educational program approp-
riate to his special needs.
If you have a handicapped
child or know of such a child
who is not in school, please
call Dr. Edward Deluzain or
Earnestine Gainer at the
Diagnostic and Resource Sys-
tem in Panama City 769-1431,
any week day between the
hours of 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
or write, "Find the Children",

P.O. Drawer 820, Panama

tion service and regulating visiting hours at
the Hospital.
Two of the volunteers, Mrs. Bill Simmons
and Mrs. Houston Ramsey, are shown above

A Golden Puff for Gloomy Days
If the dreary weather has lowered your spirits, try this
golden suggestion from the Florida Department of Natural
Resources. Golden Puff Fish Fillets is a simple gourmet idea
in which you can use any of Florida's fresh lean fish. The low
oil content in lean fish gives the raw flesh a lighter ap-
pearance, and when cooked is milder in flavor than fat fin-
fish. Florida waters are abundant with lean fish. Choose a
species that is in season and in plentiful supply. Serve your
family Golden Puff Fish Fillets this evening.
GOLDEN PUFF FISH FILLETS
2 pounds fish fillets, fresh or frozen
one-third cup melted margarine or cooking oil
1 teaspoon salt
Dash white pepper
%/t cup mayonnaise or salad dressing
2 egg yolks, beaten
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
2 tablespoons chopped pimiento
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 egg whites, stiffly beaten
S Thaw fillets if frozen. Skin fillets and cut into serving-size
portions. Combine margarine, salt and pepper. Place fish on
a well-greased broiler pan and brush with margarine. Broil
about 3 inches from source of heat for 3 to 4 minutes. Turn
carefully and brush with\remaining margarine. Broil 3 to 4
minutes longer or until fish flakes easily when tested with a
fork. Combine remaining ingredients except egg white; mix
' thoroughly. Fold in egg white. Top fish with mayonnaise
mixture. Broil about 5 inches from source of heat for 2 to 3
minutes or until golden brown. Serve immediately. Makes 6
servings.

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1977

From the St. Joseph Times, Jan. 5, 1839



Old St. Joseph Had



A Lot Going On In '39


In last week's edition, we
inadvertently picked up a
typographical error in this
account as it originally ap-
peared in The Star, in 1937.
The yellow fever epidemic
reported last week happened
in 1841, rather than 1851.

(Continued from Last Week)
From The Saint Joe Times
of January 5, 1839:
Cotton-Owing to the low
stage of the Chattahoochee
River, the quantity of cotton
received to this date is less by
several thousand bales than at
the same period last year. Our
account from the interior goes
to show that the whole amount
to be raised during the season
will fall short of the receipts of
last year, though it is hoped
that the exports from this
1 place and Apalachicola will
amount to 75,000 bales.

.'The meeting of the stock-
holders of the Lake Wimico
ard St. Joseph Canal and Rail-
road Company has been dis-
continued from day to day an
account of the absence of the
stockholders in Columbus,
who are detained by the low
river and the superior court of
Muscogee County. It is hoped
aind still expected that there
will be a fall meeting of the


Board. Business of much im-
portance requires a general
and punctual attendance of all
the stockholders.

NOTICE-I will apply at the
adjourned term of the county
court of Jackson to be holden
on the second Monday of
January next, for an allotment
of a child's part of the real and
personal estate of James. Wat-
son, deceased, lying in Jack-
son and Washington counties.
CAROLINE W. WYNNE, Ad-
ministrattrix and widow of
said James Watson, Marian-
na, Dec. 6th, 1838.

The subscriber having
located himself in the city of
St. Joseph would inform the

that he is now prepared to

etc. St. Joseph, Nov. 14.

An Ordinance to Amend and
Regulate
"An Ordinance in Regard to
Bathing"
Be it ordained by the Mayor
and Aldermen of the City of St.
Joseph, that from and after
the 20th day instant it shall not
be lawful for any white person
to bathe in front of the city
within the following limits,
viz: One hundred yards south
of Mr. T. Langley's residence,
and the same distance north of
Mr. J. C. McClay's residence
(except in a house or houses
erected for that purpose)
between the hours of sunrise
in the morning and 8 o'clock in
the evening. Any person vio-
lating this ordinance, on con-
viction before the Mayor or
any two of the Aldermen, shall
forfeit and pay to the corpora-
tion the sum of $5 to be
collected from him, her, the
parents or guardian, as the
case may be, in the usual way
of collecting fines.

Brick, 164 bundles of hay, 50 the above-described limits,
boxes of Herring, 30 barrels of with ten lashes for the first
Potatoes, 12 barrels of No. 1 and 20 for each succeeding


offense.
E. J. Hardin, Mayor Protem
A. A. Beach, Clerk.
(At this date, January 5,
1839, E. R. Gibson was mayor,
and A. A. Beach, clerk.)

A mail was received at St.
Joseph on the 9th day ,of
January, 1839.

Advice has been received'by
the last mail from Col. JohnrG.
Gamble, now in London, that
300 tons of iron has been
shipped on the Eddystofie
for the Lake Wimico and St.
Joseph Canal and Railroad
Company. That 340 tons would
immediately follow in the ship
Cygnette and that the balance
required to complete the road
would be shipped on the first
vessel that offered. Bills of
lading for the iron have been
received and the ships are
daily looked for. The road will
be ready for the iron on its
arrival, and we have been
informed by an engineer
favorably known throughout
the United States that the
bridge over the Dead Lakes is
unsurpassed by any similar
structure in the Southern
country. If the.ships above
alluded to meet with no disas-
ter, in 60 days the road will be
ready for use.
(To be continued next week)


The physically handicapped
can now enjoy outings at
Florida's state parks, with
special facilities either in-
stalled or almost completed at
nearly all state sites.
"Most of the parks now open
to the public have made
adaptions for the handicap-
ped, or are in the process of
having facilities built," said
James Cook,. chief of the
Bureau of Park Operations,
Department of Natural Re-

under construction are also
being built' with the special

As America strives to pro-
tect our natural heritage, and
more citizens are discovering
that wood, a building block of
man for centuries, offers
many unique environmental
advantages for home and
business construction.
First and foremost, wood is
a renewable resource. The
Florida Division of Forestry,
Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services,
points out that the state's
forest industry accounts for
nearly $2 billion a year in jobs
.in income.
Trees can be regenerated in
an endless cycle as long as
there is soil, moisture and the
heat and light of the sun to
promote growth.
In addition, while growing,
trees convert carbon dioxide,
moisture and solar energy into
wood fiber at the average
annual rate of two to five tons
per acre.
Conversion of wood, from
the raw state to finished
product, regardless of form,
consumes less fuel than the
Production of any comparable
building material.
Wood is also biodegradable,
and this natural breaking


down into basic components
eliminates much of the energy
drain required for recycling or
other disposal of inorganic
materials.
A natural insulator, wood is
one of the best structual
building materials and can
play a key role in energy
conservation by decreasing
the energy drain to heat and
cool residential and commer-


cial buildings. Millions of tiny
air cells, trapped within its
structure, make wood a bar-
rier to heat and cold. Modern
wood construction combines
framing and air spaces in a
structural assembly that has
high thermal efficiency, and
the spaces between the wood
framing members make it
easy to install insulating ma-
terials without increasing


wall, ceiling, roof or floor
thickness.
Timber has been the pre-
ferred building material al-
most since the dawn of man. It
was selected because of its
beauty, warmth and economy,
and now its environmental
advantages have joined the
reasons modern builders are
becoming more wood orient-
ed.

By: Dr. Robert Black
Ext. Urban Horticulturist
It's about the last time
around for pruning plants
before the warmth of spring
embraces the outdoor's green-
ery for another growing sea-
son.
Proper pruning of ornamen-
tal plants is more a matter of
selective cutting than a whole-
sale chopping of limbs.
Pruning does more than just
control plant size. It also
stimulates the growth of new
wood, maintains plant vigor
and increases the size and
quality of flowers.
Pruning is done to shape or
train a plant. Some plants
grow tall and leggy. By selec-
tive pruning these plants can
be shaped and made to pro-
duce more dense growth; Cut-
ting the terminal shoots will
force the plant to produce
several new shoots, thus the
plant will become more at-
tractive from the ground up.
Plants are pruned into dif-


ferent shapes to create special
landscape oddities. This prac-
tice (topiary) has become
very popular in recent years.
However, plants pruned in this
manner are specimen plants
and should be used sparingly
in the landscape.
The practice of growing
plants against a wall requires
a specialized method of prun-
ing. Plants trained in this
manner are specimen plants
and not all plants are adapt-
able to this method of training.
Pyracantha and loquat make
excellent espaliered plants.
Hedges also require a spe-
cialized type of pruning. The
plant should be trimmed so
that the base of the hedge is
wider than the top so that light
can reach the lower leaves.
Pruning should be done at
the proper time of the year.
Spring flowering plants should
not be pruned until after
blooming in the spring. Plants
included in this group are
azaleas, jasmines, camellias
and spireas. Plants that pro-
duce flowers on their new
growth, such as, abelia, hibis-
cus, roses, oleander, bougain-
villea and allamanda, should
be pruned before the new flush
of growth in the spring. Deci-
duous plants may be pruned
late in their dormant season
for example mimosa, dog-
wood, jarcaranda, oaks and
crape myrtle.
The first step in pruning is to
remove all dead, diseased or
injured branches. Once this is
done it may be necessary to
thin out the plant. Remove
branches that cross each other
or they will obviously become
entangled. If the shrub still
looks too thick remove some of
the older branches. Remove
any branches that are distinct-
ly different from the rest of
the shrub. Cut back exces-
sively long growth to a bud
that is four to six inches below
the average branch length. If


Anyone who maintains a
checking account is general-
ly capable of balancing it
and keeping it from being
overdrawn. Then, why do ac-
counts become overdrawn?
It is not always a matter of
poor arithmetic or an irre-
sponsible attitude. Some-
times it's merely ignorance
of the system. Here are some
suggestions for keeping up
with a bank's procedures to
make certain your account is
in balance.
When depositing a check
from another bank, you
should be aware of how long
to wait for it to clear before
you may safely draw checks
against it. If the bank is in
the same city, allowing two
or three days for collection
should be sufficient. If the
bank is out of town, a period
of five to ten days is neces-
sary for clearance, depend-
ing on the location of the
other bank. Sometimes it
may be essential that you
know the exact day a check
will be credited to your ac-
count. In this case, consult
one of your bank's officers
about the check in question.
Few people realize how long
a check remains valid. Al-


Rev. J. C. ODUM,
Pastor


you wish to reduce the size of
the shrub cut back each
branch four to six inches, to a
new bud. Do not use hedge
shears but cut each branch
separately. This will provide a
neat, informal shrub, that
retains its naturalistic shape.
Use the proper tools. Most
general pruning can be ac-
complish with a small pair of
hand shears, larger lopping,
shears and a small pruning
saw. Kept sharpened, the tools
will give clean cuts which will
make the wounds less suscep-'
tible to attack from insects
and disease organisms. A tree
dressing should be used to
protect larger cuts on shrubs
and after limb removal on
trees.

Thumbing
May Soon be
Against Law
Hitch hiking may soon be."
hard on your pocketbook as
well as your feet said the
Florida Highway Patrol this -
week.
Colonel Eldrige Beach, Pat- '.
rol director said, "Since the -
1976 legislature authorized
cities to pass their own anti :
hitch hiking laws, several:
have begun studying the possi-
bilities."
Florida has had a law pro-
hibiting standing on the por-'
tion of a roadway paved for .
vehicular traffic for the pur- -
pose of soliciting a ride,
employment, or business from
the occupant of any vehicle for
some time. However, it is
legal when not standing on the
pavement outside of munici-
palities."
The director concluded by-'
saying, "In 1976, almost 500
pedestrians were killed in
Florida and if anti-hitch hik-
ing laws will help reduce these
deaths, we will do our best to6.
assist in every way possible."


though a check is technically
valid for six years, most
banks contact the payer be-
fore honoring a check which
is six months old or older.
Another area where cus-
tomers lack information in-
volves the question as to
whether a check may be da-
ted on a weekend or holiday.
The idea that a check dated
on Saturday, Sunday or a
holiday has been a widely
circulated misconception for
years. Banks will honor a
valid check, no matter when
it is dated.
Finally, many consumers
wonder what happens if a
check is mistakenly written
with one amount in words
and another amount in fig-
ures. The answer is that
most banks will pay the
amount spelled out, so try to
avoid thinking in terms of
millions when writing the
longhand portion of your
check. Don't worry though, if
the bank doesn't pay the
amount written out, they
should return the check
when the error is found.
Knowing more about bank
policies makes maintaining
a checking account safer,
and easier. (AFNS)
