Little Janah Strickland, has
her fingers gently rolled over
an inkpad and her fingerprints
pressed onto paper by Deputy
Joe Johnson, of the Gulf Coun-
ty Sheriff's Depaitrient.
The fingerprinting pro-
gram, "Help Our Children" is
beingg sponsored locally by the
Sheriff's Department, in con-
junction with the Missing
Children Information Center.'
Across the nation, children
like little Janah are being,
fingerprinted in the hopes that
the prints will never be need-
ed. Police call the growing
popularity of kid-prints a reac-
tion to the horror of child ab-
ductions and the tragedy of
child custody battles.
Locally, parents are .en-
couraged to bring their chil-
*dren to be printed during the
first program to be held this
Saturday, April 2; at Perry's
Pizza in Port St. Joe, from 10
a.m. until 2 p.m. The second
program will be held at Rich's
IGA in Wewahitchka on April
9, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.,
CST.
Soft drinks will be served
those, children participating.
If parents are unable to have
their children printed on,
either Saturday, they are urg-
ed to bring them by the
Sheriff's Department and
have them printed.
Miss Strickland is the
daughter of Rex and .Denise
Strickland.

In a news release to The Star, St. Joe Paper Co.
announced that it has agreed to purchase controll-
ing interests in two rural telephone companies serv-
ing areas of North Florida and Southern Alabama.
St. Joe announced that it has signed agreements
to purchase all the outstanding shares of Gulf
Telephone Co. of Perry, which serves a.
1,060-square-mile area of Northern Florida. The
company also has agreed to purchase all of the:
outstanding shares of Florala Telephone Co. of'
Florala, Alabama, which provides service to' a'
600-square-mile section of Alabama and Florida.
The agreement was announced today by Jacob
C. Belin, chairman of St. Joe Paper and its wholly-
owned subsidiary, St. Joseph Telephone' &
Telegraph Co. Belin also is a trustee and chairman
of the executive committee of the Alfred I. duPont


Testamentary Trust, which owns 75 percent of St.
Joe Paper.
The income generated each year by its in-
vestments in such ongoing enterprises as St. Joe is
given by the Trust in support of the cure of the crip-
pled children of Florida and Delaware and' the
health care of the elderly of Delaware. Since 1971,
the Trust's gifts have totaled more than a quarter of
a billion dollars;
'"By these two acquisitions we at St. Joe and the'
duPont Trust believe that we can add materially to
the quality of the daily lives of the people that these
two fine companies now serve," Belin said. "At the
same time we will be adding to the earnings base of
St. Joe and the duPont Trust's assets, so that we can
go on providing for the crippled children and the
elderly into perpetuity."


Such services as engineering, accounting,
regulatory affairs, and management may be pro-
vided to the two companies through St. Joe's sub-
sidiary, St. Joseph Telephone & Telegraph Co. This,
Belin said, could provide economic advantages and
efficiencies to all three companies and their
subscribers.
St. Joseph serves 16,672 subscribers in" a
2,701-square-mile area of the Florida Panhandle
that includes all of Gulf, Liberty, Franklin, and
Calhoun counties and portions of Bay, Gadsden,
Jackson and Wakulla counties. Gulf Telephone
operates in Taylor and small sections of Madison
and Jefferson counties, while Florala serves parts
of Covington and Geneva counties in Alabama and
Okaloosa and Walton counties in Florida.
Both acquisitions must be approved by the ap-
propriate state public service commissions.

Gulf County had its first
traffic fatality of 1983 early

nineteen-month old child died
in a single vehicle accident
north of White City.
KainonHill, of Port St. Joe,
was a passenger in a late
model Chevrolet being driven
by the infant's mother, Gwen-:

According to Florida High-
way Patrol Trooper Bill God-

A multi-million dollar
damage suit against the City
of Port Sti Joe began Monday
in U. S. District Court in
Panama City. The suit stemm-
ed from a traffic accident on
February 24, 1981, involving a
City fire truck driven by a
volunteer fireman, James
bravess, and a: pickup truck
driven by Rolert Davis of
Pbrt St. Joe.
.The accident resulted in the
death of Robert Davis, and the
paralysis of his grandson,
Leroy Davis, Jr., who was a
passenger in the pickup. Also
sustaining injury in, the acci-
dent.was Leroy Davis, Sr., the
cfiild's father. .
fthe suit has been filed seek-
ijg damages for Leroy Davis,
Jg., now four years old, who is
aiparaplegic as a result of the
accident, and' his father. Both
were from Georgia and were,
visiting relatives in Port St.
Joe at the time of the mishap.
The grandfather's widow,
Mary Davis, 'was awarded
$250,000 in a wrongful death
suit which was tried in Port St.
Joe last month. The jury in
that trial said that the


firetruck driver, James
Graves, was 90 percent at
fault in the accident, which oc-
cured at the intersection of
Highway 71 and 98. The truck
was enroute tb a grass fire,
and according to testimony in
the trial, had run a red light,
and-struck the Davis' truck.
In the current suit, the city
has accepted liability for the
accident, and according to
Judge Maurice Paul, the
jury's duty in this trial is to
determine the amount of!
damages to be awarded.
Davis' attorney, Ralph
Smith of Tallahassee, said he
is asking for epo than $2.2
million for Leroy Davis, Jr., to
cover life-time medical ex-
penses for him alone. He
stated in his opening state-
ment that he wants $500,000
more for potential lost wages
the boy could have earned had
he not been disabled.
: In addition, an unspecified
amount of damages is being
sought as compensation. for
the child's "mental anguish,
humiliation and loss of the
capacity to enjoy a normal
life."


The child, less than two,
years.old at the time offthe ac-
cident, suffered a ruptured
spleen, a broken arm and
bruised lungs according to Dr.
Dixon McCloy, general
surgeon who treated the boy
shortly after the accident. Ac-
cording to Dr. McCloy, the
child also had undetected
'spinal injuries. The child has
suffered numerous complica-.
tions and almost died on


several occasions, according
to medical testimony receiv-
ed Monday. Medical person-
nel, orthopedic surgeons, and
physical therapist testified all
day Tuesday outlining the
medical and psychological
problems associated with
paraplegia.
Leroy Davis, Jr., the boy's
father, suffered a broken nose,

Paper Mill to


Start Monday
St. Joe Paper Company's paper mill will resume opera-
tions on Monday, April 4, following a shut down of two weeks.
An employee work schedule will be posted on the com-
pany bulletin board by departmental superintendents to in-
form the various shifts of their work responsibilities.
The starting date announcement was released Tuesday
of this week by mill officials.
The mill went down on Friday, March 18 for the shut-
down. The announcement of the operation curtailment at the

the mill was down for a period of three weeks for the same
reasons.

Congratulates
Sharks
Dear'Star,
On behalf of me, Melvin
Riley, and Jake Tankersley,
we would like to extend our
appreciation to you and your
staff for providing us with th'e
Star. We are really honored to
have such a thoughtful pub-
lishing company that takes
time out to provide a Star for
us over here in Germany, we
thank you very muIhch;
We would also like for you to
print these thoughts for us,
and please send us a copy:
"On behalf of Melvin Riley
and Jake Tankersley, we
would like to congratulate the
hard working basketball
teams at Port St. Joe Jr.-Sr.
High. And we send a special
congratulation to the girls
varsity squad for a surprising
season. Many people doubted
the girls, but determination
brought forth victories. We
would like to wish Port St. Joe
Jr.-Sr. High, good luck on the
following sports ahead."'
"Be the best you can be� in
the year of 83".
Cordially yours,
Melvin Riley

twelve inches. The inside is
usually cluttered with nails,
hammers, a saw or two and an
assortment of scraps used to
build things. And although it is
not a nice truck by modern
standards, it is very depend-
able.
I can set my watch by Bill's
truck, give or take ten mi-
nutes. Each morning at about
six-thirty Bill's truck will start
up. If I don't hear his truck
start I know that Bill went into


work early or something is
wrong. It's like getting used to
hearing the rooster crow; if he
doesn't crow someone has
been in the hen house.
It's not just in the morning
that I hear that truck start. If
there is a project going on at
the church, Bill's truck, will
start. If there is someone in
our small town that has a
need, more likely than not, I
will hear Bill's truck start.
Just the. other morning,


while having a few cups of
coffee, I heard Bill's truck
start several times. I instinc-
tively knew something was up.
I stepped out the front door
and Bill's truck was backed up
to his next-door neighbor's
house and leaves were being
loaded on it. His neighbor's
mother is sick and she has to
spend a lot of time with her.
Bill's truck hauled off all those
leaves.
Bill's truck is started a lot
during the Christmas Season.
It is used to haul lumber to the
church to build the Nativity
Scene that our community
enjoys so much. It is also used
to haul the remnants away
when the Christmas Season is
over.
If I were amine to, I could
follow Bill's truck and find out
just who in our town needs
help. More often than not that
is where Bill's truck is going


when it is started. Sometimes,
however, I do follow Bill's
truck, but it is not often. When
I do it is usually on a weekend
and it is a rare occasion when
it is headed to the golf course.
Bill's truck usually has more
important missions!
I cannot tell you all the
reasons why Bill Brown's
truck is started because they
are not public information and
the owner does not talk a lot
about his truck. I can say this;
it is started most of the time to
start on a mission of help. And
I have never seen it start
without Bill Brown behind the
wheel!
The world will little note nor
long remember what I say
here but our community can
never forget what Bill
Brown's truck has d6ne here!
. Bill, don't sell that truck!!!
We need a lot more trucks
like Bill Brown's.


Is Mother

"WHEN IS SPRING going to get
h re? That was a fair, legitimate
question to ask last week about this
time. Last Thursday was about as
gunky a day as we have had this year. It
Sias the day Atlanta airport was snowed
ihi and Birmingham had what they
hoped was their last snowstorm of the
year. ": - :
"When is it going to be Spring?"
Was the precise words Jacque Quarles
greeted me with when I ran into her in a
downtown store last Thursday after-,
noon. Jacque and I rarely meet like that
but when we do, she comes up with one
of those greetings which will make an
jildelible mark in my mind. With the
weather outside a blustery 45 degrees
at times last. Thursday, the greeting,
"When is Spring going to get here" is
cfftainly one to remember.
Jacque hit me with that question
wien I wasn't looking. The only thing I
cdUld tell her... the only remark which
seemed appropriate on the spur of the
moment - one which would be
approved by the Chamber of' Com-
merce - was, "What do you mean,
'when is Spring going to get here? Don't
you know it has already been here for


Nature Just FT

three days? don't you read the
calendar?'
+ ++,
.IF I WERE WINTER and I wanted


people to remember the day I' drew my
last gasp and put up the ice, the cold
wind, the chapped hands and the colds
for the year, I would have given them
last Thursday. Last Thursday was
about as close as you could get to a
genuine, quality winter day without it
actually being winter. Like I told
Jacque Quarles: it was Spring. It had
been Spring ever since Monday, when
the Calendar said it was. Monday of last


)oling Us Wit

week was the first day of the new year
in which the sun was on the northeIn
side of the Equator and beginning its
steady journey north to bring summer
to the northern half of the Hemisphere. ,


There's no arguing with the fact"
that Spring is here, even though it
hasn't done very well as yet.
Back to winter's demise.
If I were winter I would dearly love.
to leave a day like last Thursday for
people to remember me by for the rest
of the year. As a winter day, it was. a
beaut. As a spring day, it was a
complete and utter failure. .


Raw Weather or Is Spring Here?


LAST THURSDAY WAS a 'real
bummer for everyone. I was going out
to the Container Division of the Paper
Company and about the time I got to the
guard house, I looked up and saw a


he flapped and flapped his wings,
strained his neck and head toward the
north and strained every muscle and
still made no head way; he finally just
gave up. He put his wings in "coast",
heeled around in the air, and rode the
wind currents off toward the south.
That was a smart crow.
GOING ON THE ASSUMPTION
that by now, the weather has really
turned into a spring situation, I'm going
to say I am going to plant my tomatoes
this week. I'm going to get them in the
ground and get down to the business of
encouraging them to grow.
I am getting hungry for a good, vine
ripened, home grown, hand picked
tomato. I have come near to realizing
this particular ambition the past couple
of weeks. I have been eating a few of the
hydroponic tomatoes grown by Jim
Bozeman in his hothouse in Wewa-
hitchka. One of the daughters-in-law
saw Jim recently and put in an order
for some of his hot house honeys and I
have benefitted by his being hungry., to
get rid of his tomatoes . . . at a price.
I'm still looking forward to the day
when I can pick my own. The beginning


of Spring - whenever it is this year -
is usually a reminder that this day is
close at hand.
MY WIFE'S DOG and our back
yard resident squirrel both have the.
first touch of Spring. They are both in a
playful mood and seem to enjoy doing a
little running and frolicking.
I can turn Rachel outside and she,
just takes off in a hard run. Zoom! She's
off and after anything which moves.
The resident back yard squirrel has.
taken to hunting up Rachel for a bit of
tag.
The other day, the squirrel was in a:
pine tree in the back yard tantalizing
Rachel by barking, shaking its tail and
scampering down the tree trunk toward.
the expectant dog.
The other morning, the squirrel
started down the tree. The dog perked'
up and got ready to pounce. The
squirrel went around on the other side.
of the tree, scampered to the ground&
and took off toward its nest and left the
dog standing there looking.

BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
Asparagus is one of the
vegetables that supposedly
won't grow in the Florida
garden. In fact, if you have
tried raising asparagus you
may be convinced that it won't
grow here. But there are a
small number of gardeners
who haven't heard the news
and grow asparagus anyway.
It's true that asparagus is
generally a poor choice for the
Florida vegetable garden. The
crop isn't produced commer-
cially anywhere in the state
and attempts to develop its
commercial potential here
have been less than suc-:
cessful.
Many people, are curious
about why asparagus doesn't
grow well in Florida. In
addition to passing on some
tips that may improve your
luck with this crop if you're_
determined to try it in your
garden, I will talk briefly
about the characteristics of
the asparagus plant that make
it difficult for us to recom-,
mend it to you. My, informa-
tion for this article was
provided by Extension 'Vege-
table Specialist, Jim 'Ste-
phens.
Asparagus is adapted to a

STRANGE LEAVES


Many plants and seeds can be very harmful if
chewed or swallowed. Children especially are prone
to this danger and should be cautioned to avoid them.
Castor beans, poinsettia leaves, mistletoe, daffodils,
hyacinth and narcissus are particularly dangerous.
Some of them will cause vomiting and diarrhea and all
of them have been know to be fatal.
If you suspect that someone has chewed or has
swallowed a potentially harmful leaf or seed, get them
to a physician without delay. Time is of great

FIND BASS FI

THEN CA TCH
Before a fisherman can catch
bass, he first has to find them.
The best way that I have
found to locale bass is to look
at : large tributary creek or a
m'airr river coming Into the lake
you are fishing
Start out in the back of the
creek, begin fishing shallow and
work your way deeper The fish
"have' migration routes, and it's
usually easier to connect with
them by starting in the shallows
and working your way out In one
given area. This is how I'll be
fishing along the Red Man
Tournament Trail.
P._ick your area and work it
out really thoroughly It's simpler
to concentrate on one small
place and find out where the fish
are Once you find out where the
fish are in a small creek, you
generally can go to the other
. creek on the reservoir and find

THEM
fish in the same type places
Fishing in the far back end of
a small creek, you're likely to be
working only a foot or six inches
of water at first. A good bait to try
there is a spinnerbait My favorite
spinnerbalt color combinations
are while or chartreuse with a
white plastic or pork nnd trailer.
As you work your way
deeper, follow the creek channel
and work the bends of the creek.
You'll usually find the fish in the
very back or in one of the first
three bends.
At the channel bends, where
the water is a little deeper, you
can use a crankbait or one of Ihe
lures that can be fished on
bottom - a plastic worm or a jig.
Remember to try this
approach on the lake that's the
next stop on the Red Man
Tournament Trail Until then, this
is Ron Shearer

The Sharks' baseball team
had a rough week of it, drop-
ping three ball games before
getting back on the winning
track.
The Sharks travelled to
Wewahitchka last Monday to
take on the Gators in inter-
county play. St. Joe drew first
blood, scoring one run in the
first inning of play.
.Thomas and Pitts supplied
the catalyst for the Gators,
each with solo homeruns, as
the Gators reeled off nine
unanswered runs over the
next four innings of play.
The Sharks didn't roll over
though, coming back with
eight big runs in the sixth in-
.ning.to tie the game.


But, the Gators avoided ex-
tra innings by scoring one run
in the bottom of the seventh,
chalking up the 10-9 victory.
Tony Beard was the losing
pitcher for the Sharks with
Stacy Strickland and Chris
Butts pitching relief.
Weeks pitched the victory
for the Gators with Thomas
and Addison throwing relief.
The Sharks beat out nine
hits on three errors, ,led by
Mitch Burke, two out of four in
the game.

On the road again Wednes-
day, the Sharks travelled to
Chattahoochee for a double


; header. The Shark defense
just couldn't get on track, as
they committed eight errors
,and gave up 18 runs, losing
both games.
'In the first game of the
afternoon, neither team seem-
ed to have a problem scoring.
At the game's end, the Sharks
fell one run short, losing 12-11.
Mitch Burke, Tony Beard
and David Bearden shared
time on the mound, giving up a
total of 11 hits.
Chris Butts led all batters,
with two hits out of four trips
to the plate. Richard Ramsey
went one for two, with David
Bearden, Paul Davidson and
Tony Beard hitting one for
three each.

Eye

Opener

By Dr.
Wesley Grace


ONE EYE WITHOUT A LENS
(Monocular Aphakia)
Q. What makes "seeing" so
difficult after cataract
surgery, even with my
cataract eyeglasses?
A. Assuming that you have
had cataract surgery in on-
ly one eye (cataracts rare-
ly develop in both eyes at
the same rate),. the pro-
blem is that your eyes are.
seeing markedly different
images that your brain can-
not fuse. The eyeglass lens
for your treated eye mag-
. nifies the image by about 25
percent; the other eye sees
at normal size. Depth and
S distance ,acuity become
confused. Were a cataract
removed from the other
eye, the problem would
resolve itself, with both
eyes seeing images of the
same size.
Q.Is there any 'way to
eliminate the problems
caused by monocular
aphakia "after cataract
surgery in one eye?
A. Fitting the post-operated
eye with ,a contact lens,
eliminates depth and
distance, problems,
because contact lens
magnify objects only
slightly. When you remove
the contact lens, however,
the vision in that eye will be
blurred. Extended wear
lenses now provide ahn
alternative to lenses that
must be taken out daily for
many patients who have
had cataracts removed.
However, you will still need
glasses for reading and-
close work.

A stingray, no. matter the

y rays, use their weapon to
catch food. An electric ray has
special muscles that can give

The vote on a nuclear arms
freeze resolution was postpon-
ed by tlhe House of Represen-
tatives recently until after Con-
gress returns from its Easter
break.
Tho postponement points
up their problem many have in
grappling with this sort of
legislation which is essentially
advisory, in nature but which
carries |great psychological
weig~it.
The issue is highly emotional
within "ore side claiming with
great fe vor that such a resolu-
tic,n will mark the end of
d;angerpus nuclear 'arms.
b uildups by the United States'
,and the Soviet Union while the
other side claims with equal,
vigor t at the resolution will
simply convince our adversaries
that we have neither the
strength nor will to meet the
Soviet challenge and will en-
courage the Soviets to even
greater production of nuclear
arms.'
Supporters of the freeze had
predicted its passage by a wide
* margin prior to the debate.
, Meeting several weeks
ago with a group of freeze sup-
porters from North Florida .
explained that my ultimate vote
on this issue would depend on.,
what effect I determined the
resolution would have on our
military preparedness.
Frankly, floor leaders for the
resolution were vague in ex-
'plaining its ultimate effect 'on
our national defense.
, am jjst as concerned as
any other rational human being
about the build-up of nuclear
arms and the potential they hold
for destroying 'the world but I


cannot in good faith vote for
any legislation which holds
unanswered questions of sqch
magnitude.
I hope that before the issue
is again considered. on the
House floor, sponsors of, the
legislation will be better
prepared to answer questions
on its ultimate effect.
While the intent of the
freeze resolution is attractive
and I commend citizens who
take the time to participate so
strongly on such a significant
issue, I believe the citizens of
North Florida sent me to Con-
gress to exercise independent
judgment based on facts rather,
than emotion.
While I hope I can vote for
this resolution', my vote on this
issue will depend solely on the
facts and not the emotionrof the
moment.

The Florida State Society,
composed of Floridians in
Washington, last week honored
a respected North Floridian for
his long record of outstanding
service 'to the state.
Congressman Claude Pep-
per, who moved to Miami from
Perry, has risen in the rarks'of
Congress to the chairmanship
of the powerful Rules
Committee.
He has previously dis-
tinguished himself in a variety of .
positions but will probably be
remembered historically as the
best friend of the nation's
elderly.
His selection to receive'the
Bob Sikes Award is richly-
deserved.
