Boat Swamps, Dumps 4 Men


Four Georgia men escaped
injury or possible death
Thursday afternoon of last
week, when their boat over-
turned in a choppy St. Joseph
Bay about 200 yards off the St.
Joe Paper Company docks.
Witnesses to the accident
said the boat was travelling at


a slow rate of speed and
apparently swamped when the
bow went under a wave.
Tossed into the chilly waters
of the bay were Howard
Nichelson of Cummings, Geor-
gia, operator of the boat and
his passengers, Clarence
Nichelson, James Nickelson


and Charles Ferrell, all of
Georgia.
After being in the water for
about 15 minutes, clinging to
their swamped boat, the four
were rescued by a Raffield
Fisheries boat, the Gulf Coun-
ty Sheriff's Department and
the Florida Marine Patrol.

HospitalBoard Answers List of Questions Posed


By PATRICIA LOWERY
Tuesday night's Municipal Hospital
board meeting was a calm following the
storm of recent tensions over hospital
personnel and procedure.
A small group of spectators showed
up to hear the board endeavor to ab-
solve themselves from accusations and
inquiries made at previous board meet-
ings.
Board Chairman Frank Pate plead-
ed with those present to set aside the
Bickering and "work toward a commun-
ity of people loving and serving each
other." He urged that efforts be made to
avoid the city's becoming known as "a
fighting place" in which industry would
not care to locate.
Pate, emphasizing that the pro-
4 blems surrounding the hospital and the
Poonais, local Indian physicians, are not
'Vracial issues, commented, "We knew
what color the Poonais were when we
brought them down here .", and that
concern over race and nationality was


1Jever alluded.
The focal issue that continued to
draw concern from the public was the
type of blood bank the hospital now uses.
Dr. P. V. Poonai, who felt the board in an
evasive manner was jeopardizing the
value of human life, continued to speak
out in his efforts of trying to update the
method of blood supply and testing equip-
ment.
Tracy Pierce of the hospital's labor-
atory addressed the board on the pro-
blem and finances involved in modern-
izing the present "walking blood bank."
According to Pierce, there are 800 blood
blank donors, largely made up from
employees at the paper mill, who have
supplied blood as needed but that on an
-average of eight to 10 days a year, the
bank would run out of necessary blood
types. With the present refrigeration
unit, blood is good for 21 days but must
then be discarded.
There is also a problem of as much as
a 48-hour delay in making law-required


hepatitis tests or HAA tests because
blood must be shipped to a regional blood
lab in Pensacola for testing. In dire
emergencies, Pierce said, blood is used
from the blood bank and conversely the
HAA test run. Poonai contended that by
using this method, the risk of jaundice is
great. '
The cost of establishing an HAA
testing unit at the hospital would 'cost a
staggering $33 per test, Pierce stated-
adding that only five U. S. cities have
ultramodern testing and refrigeration
facilities. Pierce said he had contacted
the Red Cross in Mobile to ask for assist-
ance since they have recently begun
serving neighboring Bay County.
In the two hour meeting, hospital
administrator Richard Zyski explained
that after his arrival on the job last year
it was brought to his attention complaints
concerning the lack of confidentiality of
patient records. In a letter to hospital
employees, which he read to the board,
Zyski stated that any leakage of patient


information would be "cause for dismis-
sal." Zyski further contended that gossip
is difficult to pinpoint and that he would
not dismiss any personnel without docu-
mentation and that no physician had
approached him with written proof to
substantiate a termination. He added
that locks aqd keys to the medical record
room had been changed; that a window
to the room had been sealed; and that all
requests for medical records had to be
approved by him.
Referring to the opinion of Poonai
that patient records are too technical for
untrained persons to interpret, Zyski
responded that a Florida law gives
persons the right to see their medical
records or secure them and that Chief of
Staff Joseph Vazquez was not out of line
by informing the public of the statute in a
newspaper notice.
In a previous meeting, allegations
were made against Vazquez that he
advised patients to bring suits against
the doctors Poonai. Speaking in defense


of Vazquez, Zyski thought it ironical the
barrage of malpractice complaints and
legal threats brought recently upon other
local physicians by a lawyer out of the
same Tallahassee firm representing
Poonai.
Zyski upheld Vazquez again on the
previous assertion made that Vazquez
was guilty of "sending everyone to
Panama City hospitals" for treatment
when they came in for emergency care.
After researching the emergency room
log of patients for one year, Zyski cal-
culated that three percent or 91 local
patients were transferred, out of a total
of 2,944 patients seen in the emergency
room. Of that number, 39 were referred
by Vazquez, 22 by Dr. P. V. Poonai and
the remainder by other physicians. Zyski
noted that there might be some error in
his figures because some cases had not
been logged properly or records dis-
placed.
Controversy erupted again over peti-
tions presented at the last meeting.


Nathan Peters, Jr. charged Pate of not
following protocol in accepting a petition
of 351 verified names in support of Zyski
and Vazquez found in front of him at the
last meeting. Zyski said he brought the
petition to the meeting but felt he need
not make a public presentation. Attorney
Fred Witten agreed that petitions could
be turned in in any manner as there is no
ruling stating otherwise.
Pate revealed that the petitions
turned in by Peters and Charles Carroll
in support of the Poonais and asking for a
Zyski and Vazquez dismissal had been
run through a computer and then double-
checked by water billing addresses to
achieve an accurate count of qualified
petitioners. Out of 2,893 signers, the study
showed 795 were duplications; the water
bill comparison, made on 639 names,
showed only 10 percent were city resi-
dents. Allowing a large margin oferror,
Pate contended that the petitions were
not valid enough to warrant taking
actions against Zyski or Vazquez.

The Port St. Joe branch of
the Northwest Florida Re-
gional Library was back in the
news Tuesday, as the County
Commission was asked to
reconsider a method of pro-
perly financing Gulf County's
portion of the library budget.
The Commission was asked
at 'budget time to provide
$35,000 for Gulf County's por-
tion of the Regional system's
budget, but the Commission
was willing to set aside only
$20,000 in the budget. This
wasn't enough to pay Gulf's
portion of the budget accord-
ing to Regional manager, Mrs.
Jane Patton. A big controver-
sy developed over just what'
the money was spent for and
why what the County provided
wasn't enough. The Commis-
sion feels the bookkeeping
answers they received weren't
sufficient to justify more con-
tributions from the county.
Tuesday, Mrs. Betty Mc-
Neill, chairman of the' county
library committee reported
. that it was time to reconsider
finances for the remainder of
the year. Mrs. McNeill recom-
mended that the county pick
up the expenses of county
library buildings, paying such
things as utilities, janitorial
service, etc.
Mrs. McNeill reported,
"The $20,000 contribution is
not going to carry the service
for the year."
Commissioner Jimmy Gort-
man told Mrs. McNeill that
the county was already paying
for these suggested services in
the Wewahitchka branch "and
we're not getting credit for
this contribution by the re-
gion." Gortman made the
suggestion that the local li-
brary committee go before the
School Board to secure contri-
butions for the library opera-
tion. Gortman said, "If you
get your forces together like
you had here, I believe they'll
listen to you."
Attorney William J. Rish
entered the discussion then
and said, "Let's not indict,
Gulf County for any lack of
library financing just yet." He
pointed out that with extra
county contributions in ser-
vices, contributions by the
City of Port St. Joe, state
money, local contributions
and other help "is sizeable".
Rish said, "I can't get definite
answers on local budgeting
from the library system. I
want to appear before the
executive board of the system
to get definite answers as to
just where we stand financial-

Three R's Better


Insisting that a student learn to
read, write and figure in order to
receive a high school diploma in
Florida stirred quire a controversy
last year when the first tests were
given to determine if the students
could function in these areas. There
were charges of disrihnination and
there were shouts of praise that the:
schools were finally addressing the
matter of whether or not Johnnie
was getting an education and a
method devised to find out if he was.
Tests here 'in Gulf county and
throughout the state showed graph-
ically that students could barely
read and write and could figure
mathematics little better. There
were groans from every quarter
when it was found that students
could barely function, percentage-
wise, in the area of reading. The
problem was prevalent in both
blacks and whites.
School people were upset over
the tests because some felt the
money provided to bring below
standard pupils up to par through
special classes was woefully inade-
quate. The dissatisfaction over the
program went so tar as to cause an
organization to be born to do away


with the functional literacy test,
which ferreted out those who could
not function literally.
The schools prevailed in their
testing program, though we felt they
were going too far too soon, as did
many others.
This week, Gulf county schools
have received test results from the
second round of literacy tests, and
they show considerable improve-
ment,
Maybe, in our fumbling, bumb-
ling way, we have stumbled upon a
program which points out weaknes-
ses in our educational system. With
the weaknesses revealed, at least we
have a tested enemy to attack to
bring educational opportunities up
to -where they should be in order to
accomplish their goal.
There is no need to keep shoving
pupils through 12 years of secondary
schooling if the time is going to
result in many diplomas but little
knowledge for the students.
We're happy to see the program
is effective and improvement in
testing scores is the best proof at
present that the remedy is doing
what it was designed to do.


The entire world mourned the
-death of Golda Meir, former prime
.minister of Israel. Mrs. Meir was in
.charge of the government during a
very trying time for the small
nation. It was she who was in the top
seat during the surprise attack
against her nation by Egypt a few
years ago.
When we read the many acco-
lades given Mrs. Meir, we couldn't
help but wonder what Mrs. Meir felt
About ERA.
Without the benefit of this bit of
legislation in her own country, Mrs.
Meir was made of the stuff which
caused her to float to the top of the
heap. She was a woman, a wife, a


mother and a grandmother. Many of
today's women feel that being a
woman prohibits them from achiev-
ing some of the good things in life.
Mrs. Meir was one of the world's
best examples that this just simply
isn't so. :
There are many men in this
world who haven't achieved nor are
capable of achieving what Mrs. Meir
did. We feel her life and accomplish-
ments are proof, positive that any
person, regardless of sex, color,
race or creed can achieve if they are
willing to make the preparation to
succeed. Nobody wants a person at
the top who is incompetent or who
just doesn't have what it takes to be
a top banana.


Forbidden Work In Hospital


To the editor,
I recently read an article
called "the truth" published
-by Nathan Peters, Jr. I would
like to agree with him when he
says we have freedoms of
choice, and I also agree with
him when he says, we as
citizens of Port St. Joe own the
hospital, since I am a citizen
of Port St. Joe then I own the
hospital along with other citi-
.zens.
I am a nurse, and I will ring
.my own bell, because I con-
'sider myself to be a very good
nurse, but I have a handicap, I
am also an ex-employee of the

Veterans
Veterans Service officer
Fred Kleeb, spoke to the
Rotary Club last Thursday,
telling club members of the
operations of his office.
Kleeb said there are pre-
sently 30 million veterans in
the nation, 1,230,000 in Florida
and 1,905 in Gulf County.,
Kleeb said veterans benefits
bring $63,000 into Gulf County
each year in pensions, com-
pensation, school tuition
death payments, etc.
Kleeb said there are many
reasons for making payment
to veterans. Some of the more
common are compensation for
injury or wounds, payments to
survivors, medal of honor
winners, insurance, adapted
housing for disabled veterans,
flags for burial, vocational
rehabilitation, education, sur-
vivor benefits, home loans,
special automobiles for handi-
capped and benefits for the
disabled.
Kleeb said his office in the
Courthouse is open from 9:00
to 5:00 Monday through Thurs-
day. Friday he. is in Wewa-
hitchka to aid veterans there.
Bill Ebersole of Rome,
Georgia was a guest of the

THE NATION has been slapped in the face
with an early winter this year. You pick up the
papers and they are full of stories about snow,
ice, freezing rain, blizzards and other tough
weather all the way from the Pacific to the
Atlantic. Saturday morning, I picked up the
paper and read a story about a snow storm in
southern California. Southern California is
supposed to be like Florida so far as winter is
concerned.
It tears me up to see weather like we have
been having. Here we are still running air
conditioners with Christmas only a little more
than a week away. If things keep going like they
are, the air conditioners will still be running on
Christmas day.
They have been before.

I just can't fight the temptation which is

THINGS MUST be looking up at the paper
mill. I was riding over the overpass one day this
week and thdFe was actually pulpwood laying on
the ground in the paper company's wood yard.
Not only that, there was several wood racks full
of wood waiting to be uriloaded.
For the past several months we have grown
accustomed to see only a pile of chips on the
wood yard and what wood there is in freight cars
is usually being raked off the car directly into the
flume.
A little wood lying on the yard looked good
and though it wasn't much, it gave a lift to the
spirit.
Frenchie and I are going to start some
renovation on part of our house after the first of
the year. Part of this renovation includes a
fireplace. Already, some friends have brought us
some firewood for our fireplace. I was seriously ,
thinking about hauling this load of firewood to
the paper mill to help keep the mill going.

BIBLE

NOTES
BY: BILLY NORRIS
Exodus 16:7-8, 12:37 (KJV)
Key Word: God's Suffi-
ciency
(Verse 7) "And in the morn-
ing, then ye shall see the glory
of the Lord; for that he
heareth your murmuring
against the Lord: and what
are we, that ye murmur
against us?"
(Verse 8) "And Moses said,
This shall be, when the Lord
shall give you in the evening
flesh to eat, and in the
morning bread to the full; for
that the Lord heareth your
murmurings which ye mur-
mur against him: and what
are we? Your murmurings are
not against us, but against the
Lord."
(12:37) "And the children of
Israel journeyed from Rame-
ses to Succoth, about six
hundred thousand on foot that
were men, beside children."
(families)
From the very beginning,
when the children of Israel
came out of Egypt, they
grumbled about how Moses
(and God) had led them out to
die of starvation. Chapter 12,
Verse 37, tells us that well
over one million people came
out of Egypt. Can you imagine
how much food it took to feed
this company of people?
In Verse 8, Moses tells the
people God will GIVE them
meat every morning and
bread every evening. All they
had to do was go out and
gather it up.
In Chapter 16, Verse 16, it
was accounted for each person
to have an omer of bread (15
cups). Someone has figured it
took 4,000 tons of food per day
to feed the Israelites. And this
never ending supply of food
never stopped for 40 years!
This supply came in spite of
irreverance, outright rebel-
lion, and even the worship of
idols by the Israelites.
God proved Himself true to
His Word then and He proves
Himself true today to His
children. God is sufficient in
every way. JuFt try Him.

Big Imagination

Ralph Kimmel has let his imagination run away with him
once more while he was taking a stroll on the beach. On one of
his tours of the Gulf sands, he spied this piece of driftwood
lying on the beach and thought to himself: "'A-ha! there is a
perfect reindeer!" It being so near Christmas, he naturally
thought this. Ralph plucked the piece of wood from the sand,
took it home and did his thing with it, and this is the,result.

SFood Stamp Cost


of Living
Low income families will
receive 'a cost of living in-
crease in their food stamp
allotments starting January 1,
according to David B. Al-
spach, Southeast regional ad-
ministrator of the Department
of Agriculture's Food and
Nutrition Service.
The increase, prescribed by
law, reflects the rise in the-
cost of food from March
through September of this
year. For a family of four, this
translates into a .5.2 percent
increase in their food stamps.
Between January and July
1979, states will be phasing in
Snew allotments and income
eligibility limits required by
the Food Stamp Act of 1977. As
a result, some states will be
issuing food stamps under


Increase
both old and new program
rules while this transition is
taking place.
Under the program rules
being phased out, a family of
four with no net income will
have their allotment in-
. creased on January 1 from the
present $182 to $192. The
maximum net monthly in-
come a family of four may
have and still be eligible for
food stamps will increase
from $607 to $640.
Under new program rules, a
family of four with no net
income will receive a $191 food
stamp allotment. The net
monthly income limit for a
four person food stamp family
will be $542, or about $6,500 per
year.

GARC Breaks Ground


Directors and officers of the Gulf Count Association for Retarded took a positis e step
last Frida% afternoon toward realizing a dream which the Association has had ever since it
started operations here three .\ears ago. The board members broke ground for the
construction of their own base of operations. Since the program began, it has operated from
rented and often inadequate quarters in its program of providing a learning experience for
mentally retarded children and adults.
The new site for the Association %ill be located on the old Washington High School
grounds in one of the former classrooms of the high school. The site was acquired b. the City
of Port St. Joe se% eral ears ago to reno% ate into a recreation center for the northern area of
Port St. Joe. Two of the former classroom pods are still standing empt3 and it is one of these
classroom pods which the GARC will rebuild into a school for the retarded. The Citl
provided the building for use bN the GARC free of charge, if the Association would
rehabilitate it. The GARC will sta' in the renovated building as long as they wish.
In the photo at left. the board is shown at the groundbreaking ceremonies. From left

A new billing service, which
could reduce the chance of
having electricity cut-off due
to a consumer's oversight or
misunderstanding of a com-
pany issued late payment
notice, has been instituted by
Florida Power Corporation for
k its residential customers.
Called Third Party Notifica-
tion, customers will be allow-
ed-lo designate a third person
Sto receive copies of any late
payment disconnect notices
that are sent to the customer
for non-payment or past due
electric bills.
"The service is especially
/ signed to i sist the elderly
'lr nfirm or thho have
language, or reading pro-
blems," said J.S. Crosthwaite,
Jr., director of Florida Po-
wer's consumer services de-
partment. "Likewise, the ser-
vice can be beneficial for
customers who will be away
from home for extended per-
iods of time."'
The idea of the new service
is to make doubly sure that the
customer is made aware that
his bill has not been paid and
that power could be discon-
nected. The third party would'


provide that extra measure of
security through their re-
minder.
"The third party may be
anyone designated by the


customer including a relative,
friend, clergyman, social
worker, bank trustee, or
whome-ier agrees to help the
customer. The third party will


Careless Driving Leading

Cause of Auto Accidents


Careless driving was listed
as a contributing cause ten
times more often than speed-
ing in traffic crashes in Flor-
ida during 'the first six months
of.t978 said. the Frida High--.
way Patrol recently .
ColOnel Eldrige B1each, Pa-
trol director said, "Careless
driving often results from an
improper attitude."
Records also show that
'Failure to Yield the Right-of-
Way' is the second leading
cause.
The third leading factor
which contributed to all traffic
crashes was the use of alcohol.
There were 160,161 traffic
crashes during the six months
period as compared to 139,931
in 1977 and 139,537 in 1976.


"Traffic deaths in Florida
were nearing 2,000 by Novem-
ber which was an increase of
13 percent over the previous
year," said Beach. "We are
:t4'g everything we can po.s-
si dd:b :: howevefoe.;a mn.is
have the cooperation "of all
drivers if we are to keep our
deaths below the 1977 total of
2,066."

the customer's overdue elec-
tric bill," said -.jsthwaite,
"but will advise the customer
that the bill is past due and
that power could be discon-
nected unless the bill is paid.'.'
Florida Power's residential
customers are being advised
of Third Party Notification
with their December electric
bills. A request form for the
service will also be provided.
"Because electricity is es-
sential in nature," Crosth-

later that the customer had
mislaid, forgotten, or didn't

hoped that Third Party Notifi-
cation will be beneficial in this
regard."

Take Precautions In Use


Of Holiday Decorations


The traditions of the holi-
days lighted trees, beautiful-
ly wrapped gifts, decorated
homes, all reflected in the
shimmer of bright flames
from a fireplace can, if.
carelessly used, dampen the
happiness of the holiday sea-
son.
Annually, thousands of peo-
ple, mostly children, are in-
jured in accidents with Christ-
mas trees and decorations. In
almost every case, simple
precautions would have pre-
vented the accidents.
The following recommenda-
tions will help keep the 1978
holidays safe: .
Check the lights carefully
for frayed wires, cracked
sockets and plugs. Do not use
more than three sets of lights
on any extension cord. When
leaving your house, or before
retiring for the night, unplug
the lights.
If your tree is metallic, use
indirect spon lights, instead of
strings of lights. If the sharp
edges of metallic trees cut
electric cord insulation, the
whole. tree will become
charged and cause severe
shock.
When decorating live trees,


use flame-retardant or non-
combustible ornaments, such
as glass. Never use candles on
or near a tree, nor hang'
metallic "icicles" over wires
or tree lights. "Angel hair"
and spray on artificial snow
make a combustible combina-
tion. Use one or the other,
never both. Always-use lights
with Underwriter Laboratory
(UL) or other nationally re-
cognized testing agency ap-
proval.
To prolong the freshness of a.
tree, keep water in the holder
above the tree's cut line. When
the needles begin to fall in
quantity, the trend is too dry for


safety; dispose of it.
Never burn used wrappings,
cartons or ribbons in, the
fireplace. Flare-ups and nox-
ious odors can occur from
burning toxic plastics. Any-
time a fire is burnirig, be sure
the fire screen is in place.
As a final precaution, par-
ents should not leave children
at home alone while shopping.
At least 25 percent of home
fire tragedies occur when
children are alone.
We' hope all Floridians will
take the few moments neces-
sary to remove the' fire ha-
zards from holiday activities
