Firm Offers to Buy Local Hospital



Board of Directors Delays Decision to Accept or Reject


The Board of Directors of Munici-
pal Hospital put on hold an offer to
purchase the local hospital made to the
Board at their regular meeting Tues-
day night.
Louis J. Vinci, a vice president of
U.S. Health Corporation of Clearwater
made an offer to the Board to purchase
the .hospital pending negotiations be-
tween the professional medical corpor-
ation and the hospital: Vinci told the
Board his firm was in the business of'
purchasing and operating medium to
small hospitals and furnishing man-
agement to hospitals on a contract
basis.
The corporation, a wholly owned
corporation, currently owns three
hospitals and manages the Holmes
County Hospital in this area. Vinci said
the firm has also built several hospitals


in the state, under contract from the
owners of the institutions.
"We are a corps of hospital people.
who are interested in providing quality
medical care wherever we operate",
Vinci said. He pointed out to the board
that three of their people had already
been in Port St. Joe Monday to look
over the local facility in preparation to
making an offer to purchase.
"We like the facility here", Vinci.
"We can see where a lot of money needs
to be spent to modernize, but basically
you have a good hospital property
here." Vinci said his firm would like to
make a cash offer for the institution,
then spend about $400,000 in renovation
of the building and the medical
facilities.
WANT MEDICAL CENTER
The board of directors informed Vinci


that should they decide to sell the
hospital, some sort of agreement would
have to be worked out which would
guarantee the continued operation of a
hospital here in Port St. Joe. Board
chairman, Frank Pate told Vinci, "We
would have to have a legal assurance
you or anybody else getting this facility
would continue to furnish quality
hospital care here, or the facility would
revert back to the City of Port St. Joe
debt-free."
Vinci agreed to the stipulation
countering that, "We would immediate-
ly upgrade the medical services offered.
by Municipal and offer self-sustaining
hospital care locally. We would not be a
satellite. We would want to enhance
rather than reduce any medical ser-
vices now offered in Port St. Joe."
Vinci said he was ready to sit down


and negotiate for the hospital Tuesday
night, and offered a $50,000 check for a
binder on the deal if the board agreed to
go ahead with negotiations.
TO THINK AWHILE
The board of directors told Vinci his
deal sounded good and felt sure a price
could be agreed on, but Vinci was
advised the Board was morally obligat-
ed to hear the lease proposal of Bay
Memorial Medical Center, who also
want to purchase the hospital after a'
period of lease. At present, Bay can't
purchase the hospital because of their
affilliation with Bay County. Bay has
plans in the making to become a
non-profit corporation by next year,
which will cut their apron strings with
Bay County and allow them to make
their own deals.
Bay's Board has been discussing


a 10 year lease with Municipal, with
plans to assume its operation for about
six weeks now. They were to make their
first proposal to Municipal next week if
their board gave a final approval for
the go-ahead with negotiations.
Attorney William J.Rish, speaking
at the direction of the Municipal board
informed Vinci that the board felt it had
an obligation to at least hear Bay's
proposal and also wanted some time to '
investigate Vinci's firm.
Board member James B. Roberts
remarked, "You didn't decide to buy
Municipal over-night, and I can't make
up my mind to sell it to you or anybody
else in a two hour meeting."
Pate remarked that while the offer
was new to the board, it would also be
news to the people of Port St. Joe, the
owners of the hospital, and that the


board should hold off for a short whi
to allow for any input from the citizen
the offer may bring forth.
"We're only interested in maintain
ing quality medical care for the peop
of this community, from whatever
source it is provided", board memib
Wesley Ramsey said.
Board member Bill Fleming. r
marked, "We feel it would be in yo

turned in a proposed budget
of considerably more than last
year, whichh the Board plans to
discuss 't length with the
Sheriff. Murphy wasn't pres-
ent at the meeting Tuesday.
Another official, Joyce Wil-
liams, Property Appraiser,
told the Board she needed an
extra 19 percent on her budget
of $78,000 she'is working on in
the current: year. Willianms
also asked for an extension of
her deadlinefor presenting a:
property value roll this year.
She said the extension was
necessary because she spent
so much time on last year's
roll "due to county failure to
approve her last year's budget
on time".
Williams and the Commis-
sion had words over last
year's budget, when Williams
asked her budget be increased
from the $58,000 budget of the
previous year to $80,000 for the
present year. They finally
compromised on a budget of
$78,000.
Williams' claim drew, a
sharp reply from Commis-
sioner Billy Branch, who said,
"How did the hassle over the
your budget delay the budget?
We approved your request.
You knew how much money
you were getting to work with.
You're making us out the
rascals and all the fault isn't
ours."
Williams then conceded,
"Not all of the delay was the
Board's fault. Part of it was

ASKS FOR HELP
Wewahitchka Mayor Faye
Cox and Commissioner Angie
Whitfield asked the Commis-
sion to aid Wewahitchka in
purchasing a new fire truck
for the City. "Our old truck is
nearly 30 years old and needs
to be replaced", Whitfield told
the Commission. She said the
City didn't have the revenues
to replace the truck.
Whitfield and Cox suggested
the County raise the Tupelo
Fire District tax above the .05
mill now levied to provide
funds to purchase the truck.
Whitfield suggested the coun-
ty lend Wewahitchka the
money to buy the truck and
repay the loan through the
Fire District tax revenues.
The Wewahitchka delega-
tion was advised that a truck
was purchased for Wewa-
hitchka seven years ago on
this same plan and that
$25,000 was still owed the
county on the truck loan,
made at no interest.
Currently, the fire district
tax is bringing in about $1,300
a year, with $1,000 a year
going to pay for the truck.
Whitfield then stated,- "In
order for the City to provide
fire protection in our area, we
need more help out of the
Tupelo Fire District."
AIR CONDITIONING
Tom Knox, manager of St.
Joe Natural Gas Company
reported to the Commission on
the ailing air conditioning
system in the courthouse.
Knox reported that one of
the four units serving the
courthouse needs replacing.

Fires Destroy Two Homes In A Dal


Fires last Wednesday evening destroyed two homes in
North Port St. Joe, according to Fire Chief Bascom Hamm.
The Adrian Gant home on Avenue A burst into flames
about 3:30 p.m. Wednesday and was completely burned out
inside before the flames could be brought under control.
Gant said he was in the living room of the home, when the
fire started in the rear of the frame dwelling. Gant said he
ran around to the back of the home and started putting water
on the blaze with a garden hose. He said his efforts did no
good and in a few minutes, the'home was on fire all over.
Local firemen kept the flames from advancing to
adjoining homes, while dodging falling electric service lines
and attempting to save as much as they could of the burning
house.

Dope Peddlers


Dupe Buyers
According to Gulf County Sheriff Ken Murphy, the
officers of the Sheriff's Department, in the past two
months, have confiscated approximately 5,000 pills
from various locations throughout the county.
These tablets and capsules have the appearance of
"yellow jackets", "black beauties" and quaaludes,
common pills sold by drug pushers. The pills sell for
approximately $2.00 each on the streets to local users.
Laboratory analysis proved the confiscated pills, for
the most part, to contain only a small amount of
caffeine, not as much as a cup of coffee.
The pills mentioned and 32 other kinds can be
purchased through the mail from ads found in drug
users' magazines for as little as $10 to $20 per thousand.
Since 'e pills are non-narcotic, this practice is not
illegal. However, the pills are being sold on the street
as drugs for approximately $200 a thousand, which
means the pusher is making a tremendous profit and
the buyer is being sold something that is worthless. If
someone wishes to spend their money in such a way,
this, too, is not illegal.
Sheriff Murphy said, "This seems to me to be a
waste of money, which all drug deals are, but I thought
the local user should be aware of what he sometimes
spends his money for."

Hutto Represents


People, I


A few weeks ago, we had a
letter to the editor from a local man
concerning the voting record of
Congressman Earl Hutto concern-
ing spending for projects by the
Federal Government.
SThe writer felt Congressman
: Hutto had betrayed the Democratic
Party by voting for a finance plan
Advocated by President Ronald
Reagan, because it severely cur-
tailed some social projects and
eliminated others. Our writer was

Congressman Hutto and his vote

this program as yet.
As we see it, Congressman

his purpose in going to Washington,
we could just put the names of all

shake them up, and draw the name
of a Democrat to go to Washington
and cast the Democratic dictated
vote. Even our letter writer should
be willing to admit that there are
Democrats we would not. wish to
represent us in Washington, even if
his vote was pre-ordained by the
Democratic Party.
In looking over the voting
record of Congressman Hutto, we
feel that in really important things,
and for most of the time, he has
cast his vote like the majority of
the people in his district want him
to, whether his vote was cast in
favor or against a Democratic
program.
We think this is Congressman
Hutto's responsibility and duty to
his constituents.
We feel Congressman Hutto is
one of the most honest men in
Washington and he will cast his
vote for the program which is best
for the nation and not the Democra-
tic Party. So long as he does this, he
can be assured of getting our vote
and, we feel, the vote of the major-
ity of our people in his district.

Men Remember Their Boyhood Hero and His Playtime Leadership


: I'M READING a couple of books by
Lewis Grizzard, a columnist for the
Atlanta Constitution. Grizzard is a
celebrity in Georgia, on the basis of his
columns and spends most of his time
speaking at dinners, meetings and
_onventiorn, as well as writing his
column for the Constitution.
: Grizzard is a true laid back,
rackadasical, Georgia country boy, who
refuses to take a serious view about
anything. His columns reflect his
attitude and the Georgia folk love it.
SI liked it too.
SGrizzard continually refers to what
Ie terms as his "boyhood hero". This
iero, I believe, is purely fictional, since
his name is 'Weyman C. Wannamaker,
HI, a great American". Every time
Grizzard refers to Wannamaker, he
ises his entire handle, including the "A
great American" description.
: I guess every boy has had a
boyhood hero. And most of those
boyhood heroes looked like you would
think a "Weyman C. Wannamaker, III
a great American" would look.
". Those boyhood heroes were not the
toughest boy in the gang. In most
instances any boy in his group could
0vhip up on the hero most any day in the


week. The hero wasn't necessarily the
most athletic. In many cases, he wasn't
even mediocre in athletics. The boy-
hood hero wasn't the smartest. His
grades were more the "C" type and

lower. The boyhood hero wasn't a
delinquent, though in most cases he
could easily be defined as mischevious.
The boyhood hero wasn't always and
not even occasionally the best looking
boy in the group. Usually he was the
typical picture of a boy: freckled,
crooked teeth, scruffy knees, his hair
was never a true color; it was either a
brindle red or a dirty tow blond.
The boyhood hero was usually the
one scrawny, buck-toothed boy in the


group which came up with the ideas.
You know the line, "What do you want
to do today?" The boyhood hero always
had the answer and the answer always
insured a good time for that particular


day.
That seemed to be Lewis Grizzard's
"Weyman C. Wannamaker, III, a great
American".

I HAD MY BOYHOOD hero. His
frame wasn't anything as romantic as

When I was under 13, Bob Jones,
myself and our cohorts ran together all


the time, and it was Bob's unspoken
responsibility to come up with what we
would do that particular day during the
long summer vacations.
I guess boys today have the same


long list of things they like to do and
they usually involve getting away
from home and just roaming. It's been
so long since I was under 13, I have sort
of lost touch with what boys that age do
with their summer vacation. I do
remember what we did and the
summer was chocked full of activity,
much of which caused Momma to take
down the leather strap which hung back
of the kitchen door when or if she found
it out.

like the back of our hand for at least a
mile in every direction.
We knew where the two or three
springs were and what projects we
could enjoy around these springs,
which were usually down in a small
ravine among some rocks.
We knew where the largest hickory
nuts grew and we were there when they
fell. We knew where the few black
walnut trees were and usually harvest-
ed their fruit.
We knew where the largest and
juciest fox grapes were (we called them
possum grapes) and we were there
when they got ripe.
We knew which farmers planted
peanuts and watermelons and we took
just enough for our own needs at the
particular time. One farmer didn't
mind if we took a melon or two along,
but he insisted that we eat it all when
we took it.
We knew where the few holes of
water were still available in the middle


of the hot dry summer, after most of the
streams and ditches were dried up, and
we made good use of them.
One time our boyhood hero, Bob
Jones, came up with the idea of going
into the woods and swimming in a large
wooden tank of water which the oil
companies kept on their property to use
as cooling water for their pumps.
Momma took a dim.view of that trip,
and down came the strap.
+++
OUR BOYHOOD hero had an
imagination, a necessary ingredient for
any boyhood hero to maintain his
position with the other boys.
.There was a big mulberry tree in
his back yard right beside a garage
which was never used because nobody
could afford a car during the depres-
sion. With his vivid'imagination our
hero had turned that tree into a large
sailing ship and the garage into a
realistic space ship, all in our minds.
We spent many hours sailingthe
bounding main in the limbs of that tree
or swooping off to Mars in the garage.
Boyhood heroes are necessary to
keep things interesting and no boy
should be without one in the summer
time.

Error In

Photo I.D.
The Star had an error in last
week's paper in a caption
under a picture on the front
page.
The Star identified Tom
Stallings as working on a
water pump at Mexico Beach.
In reality, it was Robert
Sexton working on the pump.
The other person in the
picture, unidentified, who had
his back to the camera, was
Dick Keebler.
The Star regrets the error.
Chlorine bleach, great clean-
er that it is, should be
avoided for aluminum (it
will darken the surface)
and for linoleum (it
will make it brittle).

The Museum of Florida
History has premiered two
new exhibits dealing with the
life and culture of Florida's
earliest natives. A collection
of paintings by artist James
Hutchinson delves into Semi-
nole life, from the growth of
colonial settlements in Florida
through the Seminole Wars in
the early 1800's. The handi-
work of still earlier native
Floridians (300-1500 A.D.) is
shown in a collection of
ceramic reproductions based
on pottery fragments unearth-
ed by archaeologists during
the past 80 years.
The exhibits will be on
display through September 18.
Museum hours are 9 a.m. to 4
p.m., Monday through Satur-
day, and 1 to 4:30 p.m. on

located on the ground floor of
the R.A. Gray Building,

MEXICAN BARBECUE SAUCE


Summer is the season to
enjoy the outdoors with
good friends and good food.
Weekend barbecuing in the
backyard or on the patio
has become a tradition with
many people. When you're
setting up the grill for your
weekend entertaining, spice
up your menu with this
tangy Mexican Barbecue
Sauce.
This zesty alternative to
everyday sauce will give
your barbecues an original
accent. Rich tomato paste
serves as the base of the
sauce, and you season it
with chili powder to suit
your own taste. The enticing
aroma and robust flavor of
Mexican Barbecue Sauce are


sure to please your family
and guests alike.
And it goes with almost
every kind of meat. Brush
the sauce onto hamburgers
and spareribs as they sizzle
on the grill. Or baste a whole
chicken or a roast during
the last 20-30 minutes while
the spit turns. Serve up the
extra sauce in a bowl for
guests who want to dip into
extra flavor.
Mexican Barbecue Sauce
keeps well in the refrigerator,
so you can make it days
ahead of time. Then when
the coals are ready, just
brush the sauce on your
meat and turn an ordinary
weekend barbecue into a
fiesta.


MEXICAN BARBECUE SAUCE
(Makes about 1 3/4 cups)
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 crushed garlic clove
2 tablespoons oil
2/3 cup (6-ounce can) CONTADINAa Tomato Paste
1 cup water
2 tablespoons vinegar
3 tablespoons firmly ...i. e biowa sugar
1 to 2 tablespoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon oregano leaves
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon prepared mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
Saute onion and garlic in oil in medium saucepan. Add
remaining ingredients; mix thoroughly. Boil gently, un-
covered, 20 minutes. Stir often. Brush on choice of meat
while barbecuing. Remaining sauce may be served with
barbecued meat or stored in refrigerator for later use.


CARD OF THANKS
I would like to thank all the
wonderful people of this com-
munity with whom it has been
my happy privilege to work
for the past 25 years.
Your support and under-
standing has meant so much
to me.
The full cooperation I re-
ceived from the schools, and
all others involved when we
were bringing immunization
records in compliance was an
experience I am not likely to
forget- Thank You.

TO THE CITIZENS OF ST. JOE BEACH:

The Gulf County Commissioners will be holding a
public hearing for your benefit on Monday, July 27, at 6:30
p.m., E.D.T. in the Gulf County courthouse. The purpose of
this hearing is to receive your comments and input on the
possibility of constructing a public water system in St. Joe
Beach.
At the request of some of the residents of your com-
munity we have prepared an engineering feasibility study
for a water system. This study will be discussed, including
estimated costs, monthly bills, method of financing, and
other factors to help you decide if you want the public
water system or not. The meeting will be held in the Cour-
troom to accommodate the large crowd we hope to have.
Please come and let your feelings be known.

First came a short history of

using tobacco when he came
to America and carried some
of the weed back to Europe for
the Queen, explaining that it
was a good medicine. As
Colbert put it, the queen
started using it because it was
good medicine and her sub-
jects started because the
queen was using it.
Sir Walter Raleigh was the
first man to cut up tobacco
leaves and smoke them in a
pipe, according to Colbert. He
also explained that the first
chew of tobacco was used by a


minister in Queen Anne's
court, to cure a belly-ache.
Today, tobacco is grown
mainly in four countries: the
United States, India, China
and Russia.
Colbert explained that he
started chewing just by cut-
ting off a piece of Tennessee
twist and popping it into his
mouth and started chewing.
"Anytime is a good time for
a chew", Colbert, a true
tobacco chewer said. "There
are only two times not to
chew: when momma ruled
there would be no chewing in
the house and after eating
such meals as sauerkraut".
Colbert went on to declare to
chewers and non-chewers
alike in the club that a chew of
tobacco was especially enjoy-
able after a meal of fish,
spaghetti or any Italian food.
"The only problem with
chewing tobacco is there is no
polite way to get rid of the
residue." He explained sever-
al methods which are most


widely used by seasoned to-
bacco chewers such as the
stream, the spray, or the
Tennessee drop.
The stream and spray are
self explanatory but the Ten-
nessee drup takes not a little
finesse on the part of the
chewer. In the drop, the
chewer must hunker down on
his haunches; hang his arms


over his knees and sit for a
time, rocking back and forth,
enjoying a good chew. When
the. time comes to get rid of
some of the chewing residue,
the chewer simply drops his
head like he is nodding off and
allows the expectoration to
slowly drop between his toes
on the ground.
Colbert said anyone wishing


a printed copy of his finer arts
of chewing and expectoration,
can get the document by
writing to him at his Port St.
Joe address and include $75.43
"to cover the cost of postage
and handling and my living".
Guest of the club was Jerry
Gates, himself no amateur at
the art of enjoying a good
chew now and then.


Youth-Led Revival


A youth-led summer revival
will begin this Sunday through
Wednesday night, July 19-22,

Church. The revival will begin
each night at 7:00 with a youth
fellowship after every service.

from Temple Baptist Church
in Hattiesburg, Mississippi,

Deaths from motorcycle
crashes in Florida have aver-
agedone every other day for
the past ten years, said thf
Florida Highway Patrol re-
pently.
Records show there were
1,858 fatal crashes involving
motorcycles in Florida over
son of the past ten years. A total of
Clayton 93,981 motorcycle crashes
with 79,477 of them resulting in
injuries in addition to the fatal
crashes occurred in the same
ten year period.
Registrations of motor-
cycles rose from 104,855 in
1971 to 218,707 in 1980. Along
with the doubling of the
number of motorcycles, fatal
crashes doubled during the
.same ten year period. In 1971
there were. 126 and in 1980,
there were 253 fatal crashes..
Many motorcycle crash*
are caused by inexperience,;
drinking and a lack of defen-
sive operation. However, car
drivers involved in some of.
these crashes usually say that.
they did not see the smaller
>n of Mr. motorcycle. They often make
ry, 410 turns or pull infront of them.
Colonel Eldrige Beach,


Patrol director, recommends,
that operators of motorcycles
be trained before riding in


traffic and make an extra
effort to assure that other
drivers see them.

Polish Crisis
This week delegates from
all over Poland are meeting in
a special Congress to elect a
new Central Committee and a
e/ new Politburo, the two prin-
cipal ruling bodies of the
Polish nation. Most analysts
believe that the new Central
Committee and Politburo will
be composed of younger, more
Sreform-minded men and
women than have ever before
held office in Poland and that
the older, more orthodox com-
munist leaders will be removed
from power. If this occurs, the
Polish reform movement will
have gone farther than any
other in communist history.
Such an acceleration of the
reform movement wilfhave
profound consequences for
Poland and will markedly af-
fect its relations with the Soviet
Union and with the West. I
would like to discuss here the
possible Soviet responses to the
Polish' reform movement, in-
cluding the role of the West in
influencing Moscow's reac-
tions.
The events that have led to
this week's Congress began a
full year ago in July 198Owhen
many Poles. went on strike and
united behind Lech Walesa to
Form the communist world's
first independent trade union,
:'Solidarity." At first the
strikers only agitated for
economic reforms but, as the
movement gained momentum,
their demands became more
and more political in nature.
SThe Poles are now calling for
freedom of the press and they
desire a real voice in governing
their -ountry.
The Soviet-nion has been
:" opposed, to the reforms from
the very beginning. Brezhnev
has sent Poland letters of
warping, the Warsaw Pact has
performed military maneuvers
inside Polish territory, and
high level Soviet officials have
conferred with Stanislaw Kaiia
and other Polish Communist
Party leaders. Still, the de-
maid for reforms has gone on.
Moscow must now make a
decision. It can allow the
reforms to continue unabated
or it can resort to extreme
pressure -'perhaps an .inva-
sion to stop them. Neither
Alternative is attractive to the
Soviet Union since Poland is
Considered a vital part of the
Soviet European orbit. Allow-
ing the reforms to continue
could seriously jeopardize the
Soviet-Polish relationship and
Moscow probably also fears
that the reforms will spread to
other Eastern European coun--
tries, possibly even. to' the
USSR itself.


S But invasion is also unat-
tractive to Moscow. It would
be enormously expensive in
both economic and human
Terms and would come at a
time when the Soviet Union is
already badly overextended in
Afghanistan. Many experts
believe that an invasion would
be met with considerable
resistance, which would be a
serious problem for the USSR.
Another factor which
makes Moscow hesitant to In-
vade is the reaction expected
from the West. Soviet interven-
tion would probably lead to a
serious cooling in East-West
relations, could jeopardize
disarmament talks, and might
induce NATO to establish
diplomatic and economic sanc-
tions against Moscow. Still, the
possibility of armed' interven-
tion cannot be ruled out
altogether. In similar situations
in 1956 in Hungary and in 1968
in Czechoslovakia, the Red
Army has crushed fledgling
reform movements.
Though the West can warp
Moscow not to invade, the
ultimate fate of the Polish
reforms will:be decided within
the walls of the Kremlin.
Moscow is faced with a tough
decision. Invading and not in-
vading both have serious
drawbacks. However, the
special Congress this week. may
call Brezhnev's hand. If
Moscow decides to take
decisive action, many experts
feel that- it might do so in the
coming days.
Invasion or no invasion,
Poland's problems will con-
tinue. Her economy is ineffi-
cient and her people are
dissatisfied. The Soviets must
recognize that military in-
tervention will do nothing to
alter the.long-range dissatisfac-
tion of the Polish people. And
it is this dissatisfaction which
has repeatedly given rise to
reform niovemets in the coinm-
munist.woild.
Dillweed Dip
Mrs. Jim Santini, wife of a
Representative from Nevada,
submitted the recipe which
Nancy selected this week.
1 .cup dairy sour cream
1 cup Hellmann's mayonnaise
1 tablespoon dillweed
1 tablespoon seasoned salt
1 tablespoon dry minced
onions
1 tablespoon parsley flakes
raw vegetables
Mix first 6 ingredients together
and refrigerate 2 to 3 hours
before serving. Serve as a dip
with raw vegetables.

Compost Those


Grass Clippings


Grass clippings, potato peel-
ings, onion tops and other
vegetative waste material can
be made into a valuable soil
conditioner and plant food for
fall garden beds by remaining
in a compost heap this
summer.
Compost can be used in
several ways. It provides a
good usable soil amendment
for the garden and is certainly
much less expensive than
peat. Incorporated into the
soil or around plants it is
beneficial in improving soil
tilth, friability, water holding
capacity and nutrient reten-
tion. Also, compost is used on
the soil surface as a mulch to
control weeds and conserve
moisture. Or, you can mix
your compost with soil and use
it for potting plants.
As vegetative' materials,
(materials which will rot or
decompose) become avail-
able, place them in layers
between layers of soil in a
prepared frame or bin. Ma-
terials such as leaves, waste
from fresh summer vege-
tables in the kitchen, straw
and sawdust make excellent
compost, yet are normally
heaped into garbage cans.
Choose an out-of-the-way
location for the compost area,
since the heap may appear
untidy. Choose a location that
is convenient to the gardening
area and to the kitchen door.
Usually, the small area behind
the garage or between the
utility room and the neighbor-
ing fence is ideal for framing
and constructing the compost
heap.

Fresh tomatoes and beans are married with delicate
Monterey Jack cheese sauce.


Summer is finally here,
bringing a bounty of farm-
fresh vegetables and fruits.
Green beans, firm and juicy,
overflow bins with a crispness
that means they're straight
from the field. Crimson
tomatoes, just off the vine,
burst with juice at the touch
of a knife. It's the season
to feast on vegetables picked
at the peak of ripeness!
Fresh beans and tomatoes
can easily stand alone at meal-
time but why not combine
them in a zesty casserole? This
recipe from The Kraft
Kitchens adds sauteed onions
and crunchy bits of bacon for
a flavor accent. And to blend
everything together, there's a
rich sauce made from creamy
Casino natural Monterey Jack
cheese.
With its mild flavor and
soft, smooth consistency,
Monterey Jack is the perfect
complement to the medley
of fresh tastes and textures.
The cheese was first made
by 19th-century .monks in
Monterey, California, and is
a distant cousin of English
cheddar.
Monterey Jack has long
been a snacking favorite, but
it's worth knowing as a
cooking cheese, too. Its under-
stated yet mellow flavor
makes it a natural choice to
top seafoods and vegetables.
And because some recipes
call for more spice excite-
ment, Casino natural Monterey
Jack comes three ways: plain,


with caraway seeds, and with
jalapeno peppers.

matter will require heat and
moisture for quick break-
down. The summer sun will
provide the heat, but it will be
the gardener's responsibility
to soak the compost area from
time to time for the moisture.
A light sprinkling of fertili-
zer between layers of added
compost will aid in decomposi-
tion and replace the nitrogen
used in breaking down raw
materials into compost.
Animal manures are rich,
valuable garden soil additives
and may be used in lieu of soil
between the layers of com-
post. The heat generated by
the manures will induce quick
decomposition of raw com-
post.
Some manures, particularly
cow manures, may also add
undesirable weeds to garden
beds when the compost is
applied. However, the value it
offers the garden soils far
outweighs the need to elimi-
nate manure-induced weeds.
The compost should be
turned with a garden fork
from time to time to areate
and to promote even decom-
position.
The summer months, when
heat is present, are the best.
time for decomposition and
compost preparation. Usually
a compost prepared in the
summer is ready' for fall
gardening or for a spring soil
conditioner and plant food.


The world's largest sup-
ply of fresh water is
in the Antarctic icecap.

reporting by people in this
area who receive supplement-


al security income (SSI) pay-
ments cannot be over empha-
sized, David Robinson, Social


ENTERTAINING IDEAS
CHEERY CHERRY DESSERT SQUARES


Creative cooks quickly discovered the versatility ot
canned cherry pie filling for many delicious non-pie pur-
poses. It's become a favorite convenience ingredient that
smart shoppers always keep on the cupboard shelf for all
sorts of dessert possibilities.
Cheery Cherry Dessert Squares combine the conven-
ience of cherry pie filling with cake mix for a marvelous
sweet and tart treat. Colorful cherries are layered between
a cookie-like crust and golden crumb topping.
This is a nice recipe for learning-to-cook cooks (either
children or the man-of-the-house) to prepare.
CHEERY CHERRY DESSERTSQUARES
1 pkg. (double layer size) yellow cake mix
1 V cups rolled oats*, divided
% cup (1 stick) butter or margarine, divided
1 egg
1 can (30 oz.) Cherry Pie Filling
% cup chopped walnuts
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
Preheat oven to 3500F. In. mixing bowl, combine cake
mix, 6 Tbsp. butter (set aside 2 Tbsp.) and 1 cup rolled
oats (set aside '/ cup). Mix until crumbly with mixer or
pastry blender. Remove 1 cup crumbs for topping. Add
egg to mixture still in bowl.; mix well. Pat this mixture
into well-oiled 9x13x2-inch pan. Spread cherry pie filling
over crust.
Make topping: To the reserved 1 cup crumbs, add the
remaining 2 Tbsp. butter 'and Vi cup rolled oats, along'
with nuts and brown sugar. Mix till crumbly; sprinkle over
cherries.
Bake at 3500F for 35-45 minutes or until golden
brown. Serve slightly warm or cooled. Cut in 12 generous
squares for dessert;=top with whipped cream. Or serve as
snack-size bars.
Other pie filling flavors (blueberry, apple, etc.) may be
substituted. For apple squares, spice cake mix can be
used.
*For extra B-vitamins, substitute 2 Tbsp. wheat germ for
2 Tbsp. rolled oats in crumb topping.


Security Field Representative
for Gulf County, said recently.
Proper reporting can mean
the people getting SSI will not
have to repay incorrectly paid
money, Robinson said. Or, it
can also mean that payments
may be increased.
The important thing to
remember is to make reports
promptly when they are due.
People getting SSI payments
must report immediately: if
they move or change their
address; if there is a change in
the household- whether any-
one moves into or out of the
home; if there is a change in
the way household expenses
are shared; if someone starts
to help pay their bills; if they
leave the United States for 30
days or more; if they enter or
leave an institution; if they
marry or a marriage ends;
any change in earnings
whether such income goes up
or goes down; any 'change in
pension checks, unemploy-
ment benefits, or workers'
compensation; if they obtain
or sell any personal property


or real estate; if they ha
more than $1,500 ($2,250 for
couple) in any type of bank
savings account. (All accou
joint as well as individi
accounts, must be reported
Also, reports are required
there is any change in a bli
or disabled person's con
tion; if a person cann
manage funds; if a pers
dies.
Required reports can
made by mail, telephone, or
person. The report must i
elude the name of the pers
about whom the report
made, the correct soci
security claim number und
which the payment,is mad
the change being reported
date it occurred, and sign
ture and address if the repo
is by mail.

G'REEK MOUSSAKA


Many cooks take time to
prepare meals which bear
their own personal cachet,
whether, they are entertain-
ing a house full of dinner
guests or just preparing, a
simple meal for themselves.
These cooks are concerned
not only with the food's
great taste, but with its
perfect appearance and
authenticity.
The Moussaka featured
here is made with peanut
oil, which is closest to
authentic oils used in
Greece. Peanut oil is often
recommended by profes-


Port St. Joe Phone 227-1278


sional cooks for its light
quality, which enhances the
flavor of food. Its unique
processing method results in
a completely natural, uhre-
fined oil, which has a deli-
cate taste.
The Moussaka pictured
here is one example of re-
cipes which may be entered
in the Planters Oil "Great
Cuisines of the World" Re-
cipe Contest. Original re-
cipes may be entered in one
of six categories-French,
Greek, Indonesian, Italian,
Oriental and Spanish cui-
sines.
Contestants will be com-
peting for one grand prize,
an international dining tour
for two to the finest restau-
rants in capital cities of the
featured countries. Second
prize winners will receive
cooking school scholarships
and third prize winners will
.receive Le Creuset Cook-
ware. For contest rules,
look in your favorite store,
or write to: Planters Oil
Contest Rules, Drawer "A",
Madison Square Station,
New York, N.Y. 10010.
Finalists' recipes will be
considered for use in future
Planters Oil recipe books.
All contestants will re-
ceive a copy of Planters
Oil's new booklet, "Frying
Coast to Coast," which con-
tains more than 50 inspiring
ideas for sauteing, stir-
frying, pan-frying and deep-
frying. The booklet provides,
helpful cooking advice and
a 500 coupon towards the
purchase of Planters 100%
Pure Peanut Oil. This Mous-
saka recipe is one taken

Florida Power buddies come over to give the house an energy checkup. He
said it was probably wastin' electricity and this energy expert would come
up with some answers pretty quick. Heck, I figured it was worth fifteen
bucks to find out...-- ------------

CONSTANT


ADVERTISING


One step won't take you very far,
You've got to keep on walking.


One word won't tell 'em who you are
SYou've got to keep on talking.


An inch won't make you very tall.
You've got to keep on growing.


One little ad won't do it all,
You've got to keep them going.


A constant drop of water
Wears away the hardest stone;


By constant gnawin', Towser
Masticates the toughest bone.


The constant, cooing lover
Carries off the blushing maid.


And the constant advertiser

Is the one who gets the trade!


Make us prove it.
