Unanimous Vote of Board

Dr. A. Poonai Has

Privileges Removed

Hospital Board members unani-
mously voted Tuesday morning to
revoke hospital privileges from obste-
trician Dr. Anila Poonai and gave her
thirty days to make other arrange-
ments for her patients.
Board member Tom Coldewey,
who was out of town on business, also
cast his vote for removal of privileges,
by proxy.,
Chairman Frank Pate, calling the
decision a "first" for Port St. Joe, said,
"It is sad for the hospital and sad for
the community because we need this
type (obstretician) of doctor here."
"We don't want to do anything that
will hurt anybody; yet, we don't want
anybody else to be hurt either," Pate
Tuesday's decision followed a
two-hour public hearing Friday night
requested by Dr. Poonai at which she
aired her grievances and indicated she
could not get a fair judgement by
Florida doctors.
The obstetrician asked the board to
bring in New York specialists for an
opinion before making a decision. John
Robert Smith spoke out strongly
against the proposal, "No! We are in
Florida and have Florida doctors."
Dr. Poonai said two panels of
physicians who recommended her
hospital privileges be revoked were
"biased" and lacking in expertise in the
field of obstetrics and gynecology. She
coniteded that an Ad Hoc committee
including a cardiologist, radiologist and
;pathologist were not; knowledgeable,
-- "'eouglbf obstetricai'and gynecological
terminology and procedure to judge
fairly. .
Two panels-one of three hospital

staff physicians and one of three
out-of-town consulting staff physicians
-recommended that contained within
the eleven charges and 101 charts
sufficient cause to revoke Dr. Poonai's
Chief of Staff, Dr. Joseph Vazquez,
who also addressed the Board at the
meeting, said that doctors are granted
the privilege of practicing medicine in a
hospital but that it was not a right. He
also stated that it is expected of hospital
doctors to police each other to insure
that patients who often put their
complete trust in their doctors are
"It is easier to do in larger
hospitals where there are a lot of
doctors and a variety of specialists on
the staff. But, just because the other
staff doctors do not have the same
specialty of the doctor in question does
not alleviate the responsibility they
have to keep check on him," Vazquez
Dr. Poonai argues that the hospital
was" in error by not including an
obstretician or gynecologist on the
review panels. Hospital by-laws pre-
vented bringing in an outside obstetri-
cal specialist in the panel since only
staff doctors or hospital consulting
doctors could be used. Dr. Poonai is the
only specialist in her field on staff.
Board member Tom Coldewey
pointed out that the board had agreed to
Poonai's consulting attorney Ben Wat-
kins' request that case records be
Reviewed for an opinion by obstetri-
cians at Shands teaching hospital at the
University of 'Florida .in Gainesville
prior to the final hearing. Attorney
Kent Spriggs later rejected the propo-
sal saying Dr. Poonai had already
suffered unnecessary indignation and

all charges should be dropped.
Coldewey pointed out to Dr. Poonai
that the Board had agreed three times
to have the University department
review ,the documents to alleviate Dr.
Poonai's claim her case was not
reviewed by persons of the proper
specialty, but in all three occasions had
been turned down.
,Dr. Poonai contended she was"
denied a hearing postponement despite
her objections that seven days was not
adequate time to prepare her defense'
and that her expert witness was unable".
to come to the meeting.
She said she should also have been,
able to cross-examine witnesses and"
was frequently told to be brief and
answer within 60 seconds. She charged
the chairman of the Ad Hoc committee
of not listening and being engaged in
other activity during her answer ;
Dr. Vazquez countered that Dr.
Poonai was given six hours in .the
hearing to defend her position tq'
committee physicians whom he said
were "prominent, reputable and honest'
"They had nothing to gain from the.
outcome of these proceedings. But, they
did have a lot to lose," Vazquez told the
He added that in this time of public
criticism that "doctors do not blow the
whistle" on the other doctors; physi-
cians often suffer from lawsuits and
public abuse when they do.

Sheriff Murphy said a drag-

Commissioner Gortman ob-
served, "We will be a long

Hanson said there is pre-

Jeremiah 14:8 & Psalm

Jeremiah 14:8, "0 the hope
of Israel, the Savior, thereof in
time of trouble. Why shouldest
thou be as a stranger in the
land, and as a wayfaring man
that turneth aside to tarry for

Psalm 118:8, "It is better to

confidence in man."
Jeremiah is saying literally
"Savior, hope of us Christians,
why do you seem to be like an
unfamiliar visitor or as one
traveling from one place to
another constantly." Haven't
you felt this way? When Satan
has you surrounded and the
oppression seems such that
you will never again see God
victoriously bring you through
to His Shining Glory?

Christian, it is true that the
enemy would not bother you if
you had nothing he wanted to
steal. It iswhen you are under;
attack by Satan that you need
to remember who you are in
Christ and who God is. you
must learn this BEFORE you
come under attack.
1 John 2:13-14, "Ye have

There are hundreds of scrip-

Jesus our Saviour is not one
who just visits us occasionally
but He is available at ALL

God's Word is His Honor! God

I'M DISTURBED over what the Tallahassee
Democrat is doing to my good friend Billy Joe
Last week, the Democrat came out with two
large articles on Billy Joe, trying for all the
world to connect him with the Department of
Natural Resources kickback'scandal. Although
they wrote about everything from Billy Joe's law
partner, Fred Witten, attesting to a deed, to Billy
Joe having a small farm in the central part of the
county, there was nothing there even remotely
factual that Billy Joe had anything to do with
taking kickbacks on land sales to the State of
Then why write the article in the first place?
The articles didn't do Billy Joe any good.
They cast aspersions on his character through
innuendoes, without really saying he had done


V: Wesley R. Ramsey

anything at all wrong. Even though the article
was careful to point out that there was no
evidence or suspicion that Billy Joe was
anything but true blue, the fact that a
metropolitan newspaper takes some five full
columns of their expensive space to devote it to
connect a person with a shady deal doesn't do
that person's reputation any good.
BILLY JOE is rightfully proud of his moral
character and it makes him mad for anyone to
attack it or insinuate that he has compromised it
somehow or other. Someone who has served the
peopleof Florida and the people of his district as
well as Billy Joe has over the past years
deserves better.
If I had to make a bet as to whether the Rock
of Gibralter would begin crumbling or whether
Billy Joe would compromise himself by doing

something which was dishonest, I would pick the
rock to go every time.
I think the Democrat was way off base in
their article. They have other things to write
about which the people need to know.

THERE'S MORE to this recall thing which is
being circulated here in Port St. Joe than just
getting four Commissioners out of office.
First, I'll admit I'm prejudiced as matters
now stand. But, even if I weren't involved, I
would be concerned over the issue as it affects
the operation of the City of Port St. Joe.
I would want to know who is going to replace
the Commissioners which face possible recall. It
is important to the operation of the City's
business. The business of Port St. Joe is the
largest of any government in Gulf County. It's in
the top 10 of all big business in the county,
including industry, banking, etc.
ONE FACET of our business could bankrupt
the City in just a few months if it isn't handled
properly. This isn't saying that only the present
Commissioners can do this. It is definitely saying
that' just anyone who wishes to be a City
Commissioner can't do it effectively. I'm
making that as a definite statement.
Just last week, one of the criteria handed

down by the Environmental Protection Agency
for continued approval and permission to
operate the Wastewater Treatment Plant was
that it be managed by competent and reliable
governors. If, in their opinion the management is
incapable of meeting their standards, which are
extraordinarily high, they could and probably
would remove the permit to operate the local,
plant. If a couple of minnows can shut down a'
multi-million dam, don't think our little
treatment plant is exempt from the government
axe if it isn't operated as EPA thinks it should be.
Should this permission be removed, two of
the customers of the plant, pledged now to pay 97
percent of the bond and operation costs, could
legally withdraw from their contract, since the
plant couldn't effectively receive and dispose of
their wastes as their contract calls for. In other
words, the City must perform or their-guarantee
of use and payment of expenses would cease.
Likewise, as long as the City operates the plant
-properly, the customers are bound for the life of
the bonded indebtedness to remain a customer,
thus guaranteeing the plant will never be an
undue financial burden on the City.
If they withdraw, what will the City do with a
$9 million septic tank and no customers?
ALSO IT MIGHT interest you to know that
although the City operational cash is running
neck and neck with expenses, the present
Commission has the City in good financial
condition. For instance: the Commission has
completely funded the depreciation account. If,
today, most of the City's equipment was
destroyed by some disaster, there is cash money
in the bank, earning top interest, to replace any*
damaged or. destroyed equipment. Not many
cities are in this condition and Port St. Joe could
not remain so for very long without astute

the truck was coming into the city just after dark Wednesday,

Not too Late to Add

Spice to Your Yard

It's still not too late to add
spice to your yard 'from
nature's "Bloom Room" - the
great outdoors.
Winter, when plants are
dormant, is the best time to
successfully transplant a wild
shrub or tree. That means that
if you plan to do it this year
you have only about a month
Some of the most beautiful
plants anywhere can be found
growing wild in Florida, and
often they can be had for the
In all, more than 3,000,
species of wild plants grow in
Florida more, by far, than any
other state. With proper care,
most will transplant to a
similar soil and climate
The Florida Division of
Forestry, Department of Agri-'
culture and Consumer Servi-
ces, offers the following tips
than can help the survival rate
of your plants:
-Be sure you have the
landowner's personal permis-
sion when you're digging on
private property. That applies
whether you're digging some
exotically beautiful plant or a
scrungy oak tree.
-The ideal time for a "plant
dig" is after a rainy period
when the earth is soft.
-Take home as much of the
root system as you can be
digging wide around the plant.
Have a large plastic bag or
burlap and twine to wrap
around the roots to keep them

from drying out.. Some sort of
moist mulch, or wet pine bark
,inside the bag will be extra
insurance against drying.
-Plan ahead of time where
you, plati to locate the plant
When yoiu get home, arid have
the hole already' ug.
The Division of Forestry has
a booklet called "The" Tree
'Planter's Guide" which offers
more tips. It can be obtained
from any Division of Forestry
office in Florida.
The Division also .operates
,three nurseries which grow
several species of trees for
sale to the public. Most
species from this year's crop
have already been sold out,
but a few still remain and

are available and how much.

pattern. Robinson said the driver said some of the logs were
rotten and must have collapsed as the truck took the curve,
causing the entire load to come off the truck. The driver of
the truck and Police worked feverishly getting the load of
wood out of the road before a car came along in the dark and
hit it, causing a wreck. -Star photo

The First Presbyterian
Church of Port St. Joe is
observing a season of witness
for missions. A part of this
observance is the visit of Mr.
and Mrs. David Altenbernd
from Zaire, Africa. The couple
will be at the church on
Thursday, February 15. There
will be a missions program,
and a covered dish family
night supper with the program
beginning at 6:30 p.m.
These missionaries are very
interesting people, who serve
under the General Mission
Board of the Presbyterian

bernd, an electrical engineer,
went to install electricity in
the Good Shepherd Hopital to
prepare it for opening. He
stayed to maintain equipment
at the hospital and two others
that the church operates at
Bulape and Bibonga.
His Wife, Flo is a teacher of
missionaries' children. In
Zaire, this is a unique job
because the children live in a
land of no television, no
theatres or fancy eating pla-
ces. They necessarily read
more, play games, put toge-
ther jig-saw puzzles, and
become more creative. She
teaches grades one through
seven. These missionaries
have a story to tell of their
work and of our mission work
in Zaire.
The public is invited to
attend the services which will
be held tonight. The church is
located at the corner of

Oriental Art of Bonsai

Explained to Garden Club

Tracy Pierce presented a
very informative program on
the oriental art of bonsai, the
miniaturizing of plants, to the
Port St. Joe Garden Club last
Thursday afternoon.
Mr. Pierce, along with his
wife, Ming, own and operate
Ming's Greenhouse and Nur-
sery at St. Joe Beach. Bonsai
is achieved through root and
limb pruning, and removal of
mature leaves. The removal
of the leaves causes damage
to the limb surrounding the
leaves, and when they grow
back, they are smaller in size.
This process is repeated until
a miniature leaf is achieved.
Mr. Pierce exhibited some of
his personal collection of bon-
sai plants, some of which were
seven years old.
Plants most adaptable to
bonsai are outdoor specimens,
pines, junipers, firs, boxwood,
etc. They are usually scaled

down to one-twentieth of their
normal size.
During the Bicentennial cel-
ebration, Japan presented the
United States with a collection
of bonsai specimens, many of
which were over 400 years old.
A workday is scheduled at

the Garden Center next Thurs-
day at 10 a.m. Projects will
include pruning shrubs, esta-
blishing beds for new plants,
and the cleaning up of the
interior of the Garden Center.
Members are urged to at-
tend the work session.

Local Girl Scouts Host

�,Folklore Day for Area

When Girl Scout troop 171
stopped for a flat tire enroute
to Folklore Day for Junior
Girls in Port St. Joe, they
didn't expect to see so many
other Girl Scouts on the
roadside. No less than seven
carloads of Girl Scouts stop-
ped to offer assistance. Troop
171 quickly learned an un-
planned lesson in self reliance
and resumed their trip, that'
help was not even needed.
Port St. Joe's Girl Scouts
hosted junior scout troops
from surrounding counties,
with troops from Panama.
City, Parker, Tyndall, and
Apalachicola. 134 girls and
leaders gathered in the Cen-
tennial Building to share their
research, make new friends
and have fun.
Folk music, legends, and
dances gave a feel of life in
another time aind insight into
one's heritage. Tours of the
Constitution 'museum added
depth to the history. Several-
troops explored panhandle
history and folklore. Troop' 245
of Port St. Joe and Troop 171 of'
Panama City each demonstra-
ted one way people enjoyed
themselves before television:
Troop 245, (Reva Lane, lead-
er) danced a popular folk
dance while the audience
clapped rhythm for them.
Troop 171 demonstrated a
square dance.
Troop 200 from Panama
City selected a Cherokee
legend. "Children" sat at
"Grandmother's" knee as she
related a folk tale about the
beginning of fire. "Animals"
of plain and forest acted out
the legend.
A pot pourri of songs,
anecdotes, history, and super-
stitions fiom Bay County were
shared by Troop 41 from
Panama City. Girls even

found living legends by col-
lecting superstitions remem-
bered by neighbors.
Under the leadership of
Ruth Lucas, Troop 118 of Port
St. Joe reenacted the plague
that wiped out the thriving
city that was a forerunner to
present Port St. Joe. The first
Constitutional Convention was
held in Port St. Joe. St. Joe has
a long and rich history.
Troop 147 of Apalachicola
used posters, .fliers, and re-
ports to tell of Apalachicola,
once a major cotton and
lumber port, growing and
shipping port, and home of
John Gorrie who invented the
first ice machine. Appro-
priately, the birthplace of
modern refrigeration and air
conditioning will soon be the
site of the first solar heated
and cooled school in Florida.
Other troops looked beyond
the panhandle in their search
for heritage.

Lincoln please stand up?"

nies on "To test the truth",

Finger puppets of "famous

Scouts from Troop 225; includ-
ed in the parade were Poca-
hontas, Abigail Adams, and

Troop 76 of Port St. Joe,
(D.E. Jones, leader), acted
out a legend from the Gold
Coast of Africa, former home
country of many panhandle
pioneers. In this folk tale, the
proud hero becomes embar-
rassed by a well intentioned
favor and hides 'in the tall
grasses. Meanwhile, others
find joy in dancing in a time

The queen of flowering
shrubs is ready to be placed in
the area where she is to grow.
Yes, nurserymen have plenty
of rosebushes now. It is the
time to make your selection.
Pick those that will provide
you with color and fragrance.
You know, there are a number
of roses that have little or no
fragrance; and, a rose, no
matter how beautiful, will be
more lovely when it has a rose
fragrance. Potted roses have
a better chance of survival,
says Charles W. Dunn, Execu-
tive Vice President of the
Florida Nurserymen and
Growers Association. Roses
that are bare root could have
dried out in shipment or they
may have already started to
grow. The stored food is
rapidly used when the roots
cannot obtain further nourish-
ment from the soil. This
situation may weaken the
bush and it is just possible that
it may not live. Pick the
healthiest plants available
from your nurseryman.
There are some points to
consider when selecting a rose
bush. Pick one that has strong,
large canes. Inspect for crown
gall. Look for lesions on the
old canes. Carefully observe
any premature breaks of
growth. Ask about the under
stock on which the plant is
grafted. Two root stocks are
acceptable for Florida. One is
Dr. Huey and the other is
Fortuniana. The latter is
considered to be superior for a
number of reasons. The root
stock is resistant to root knot.
It produces a large bush.
Plants grafted on this stock
will ultimately produce many
more flowers. Although the
plant on Fortuniana may be a
little slower to start vigorous
growth, the wait is more than
worth the trying of your
How do you plant a rose
bush? The firs thing is to dig
the proper size hole. Do not dig
a hole the size of the container
and then sit soil and plant into
the hole. You will be disap-
pointed with the results. On
the contrary, dig a hole that is
about twice or three times the
size of the potted plant. Into
this hole should'be added some
dolomite, bonemeal, super
phosphate and some organic
matter such as compost or
peat. Mix all of this together.
Then spread some of the mix

up the sides of the hole and
gently set the plant (removed
from the pot) into the hole. Fill
the hole with the excess mixed
soil. Water thoroughly. Al-
ways set the plant just a little
higher than it was in the pot as
the soil will settle. In the
northern states, the graft is
set below the surface of the
soil. Here in Florida, the graft
is set well above the soil level.
After the plant has been
securely set, the excess small
branches should be removed,
as well as part of the large
canes, if the plant is still
dormant. Paint any sounds
with orange shellac of pruning
paint to prevent invasions of
cane borers. �

Water should be added to.
the planting site at least every
other day. Once the plant has
begun to establish itself, begin
your spray program and ferti-
lize every three weeks. Soon
(five to six weeks), you will
have an abundance of roses
for decorating your home.

Roses are one of the best
investments for continuous
flowers, says Charles W. Dunn
of the Florida Nurserymen
and Growers Association.
They do require care. Be
prepared to give them this
care and you can have plants
that will live and flower for at
least ten to fifteen years or
