Teacher of the Year

born's election as Gulf County
Teacher of the Year, Superin-


as Gulf County School System's "Teacher of
the Year." -Star Photo


tendent B. Walter Wilder says
"The Teacher of the Year
Program is an attempt to
honor a teacher who is repre-
sentative of all good teachers.
The selection of Martha San-
bron for this award represents
an unqualified achievement of
this goal."
Mrs. Sanborn is an honor
graduate of Florence State
College in Alabama, and
taught at Carrabelle High
School before coming to Port
St. Joe Jr.-Sr. High School in
1959. She is married to Cliff
Sanborn, an employee at St.
Joe Paper Company, and the
mother of three; Robbie, a
graduate' of Florida State
University is in the USMC;
Sandy is in his second year of
Slaw school at Florida State
University and Pam is a
junior at Port St. Joe High
School.
At Port St. Joe Jr.-Sr. High
School, Martha Pugh Sanborn
is a favorite with students and
teachers alike. Currently she
is Varsity Cheerleader Spon-
sor, F.H.A. Sponsor, a mem-
ber of the Gulf County Health
Committee, a participant in
the Beginning Teacher Pro-
gram, and a member of the
Delta Kappa Gamma Society
International as well as being
a member of the Gulf County


Education, the Florida Teach-
ing Profession, and the Na-
tional Education Association.
Active in the First' United
Methodist Church, she was
United Methodist Women Pre- -
sident in 1981-82, Chairman of
the Commission on Education
for four years, and continues.
to teach a senior high Sunday
School Class.
ThePrincipal of Port St. Joe
Jr.-Sr. High School, Edwin
Williams, said of Mrs.. San,
born: "There is a unique,
undefinable quality in. her
teaching, a certain charisma
which cannot be imitated. It is
that intangible something
which makes what is often
referred to as a 'born teacher.'
Whatever the explanation for
her success, one thing is
certain- all the members of
our educational community
are richer for her presence."
A colleague and also a
cheerleader sponsor, Mrs.
Judy Williams, stated: "Mar-
tha Sanborn is without a doubt
the most dynamic, energetic,
and totally involved teacher
with who I have ever had the'.
privilege to work. She has that
special quality that causes our
students to gravitate around.
her in and out of school. Our.
school would be a lot less )
exciting without her."

School Board Approves Calendar


The Gulf County School
Board approved its calendar
for next- years' school term
Tuesday, making one 'major
change in the school program.
While students will still:
attend the state-required 180
days of school, the Board has
re-arranged the program to
allow the first semester to be
completed by the Christmas


break period. In the past, first
semester break has always
come about two weeks after
the Christmas holiday break,
causing a serious disruption in
the curriculum continuity.
Supt. Walter Wilder said
school will start for teachers
next year on August 15 and for
students on August 18. Classes
will end for the year on May 28


for students and May 31 for
teachers.
Even with the new schedule,
students will still observe the
major holidays they have in
the past, and days off from.
school will still total the same
number days as in the past.
In addition to the calendar
for the new year, the School
Board set up a four-day week


for the operation of summer
school. Classes will still call
for the same number of hours
per week, however.
BUS DRIVER DISMISSED
In personnel matters, the
Board dismissed James Mc-
Gee as a bus driver.
McGee, who is an officer on
the Port St. Joe Police Depart-
ment, has been driving a


school bus as an extra job for a
number of years. The police-
man had been warned against
having his service revolver on
his person during his bus-
driving duty hours. McGee
was observed with the gun
recently and immediately sus-
pended from duty for violation
of direct orders from the
Board.

Should a child be abducted only a,
permanent record like a fingerprint
can guarantee that a child can be
returned to his rightful home at
some point in time in the future.
It's a pity that such drastic
measures should become necessary
especially with children. Taking
precautions to make sure you get'

seems to be an unnecessary precau-

stay there until they die. I
can't think of a better place.
Anyway, it had been a long
time since I had seen Uncle
Byron; about twelve years to
be exact. I had been living in
Mississippi and didn't get
home often and when I did, it
was for short visits and I just
never took the time to visit
him.
On one of my rare visits
home I decided that I had
better go and visit Uncle


Byron because he might not be
around to visit much longer.
The last time I had seen him
was at my father's funeral and
he didn't look too good then. I
also knew that he would
appreciate me taking time to
come by for a short visit,
considering the fact that he,
still lived way out in the
country in Santa Rosa County,
Florida.
While driving to his house (a'
distance of about twenty-five


miles) I decided I would play a
trick on Uncle Byron. I would
not introduce myself and if he
didn't recognize me 'I would
tell him that I was a federal
agent looking for moonshine
stills. I would try to enlist his
help in locating some of these
illegal distilleries.

When I pulled up to his
house the screen door was
closed but the front door was
open, but it was dark inside.
Country folks don't believe in
burning electricity unneces-
sarily. I could see through the
screen that there were two or
three people sitting around the
fireplace. Without knocking I
walked on in and said, "How-
dy."
Once inside I recognized
Uncle Byron but did not know
the other two men seated
beside him. Without standing
or offering to shake hands he

said, "pull up a chair and set

I .pulled up a 1high-back
rocking chair and when I was
comfortable asked,. "how ya
been doin'?"
"Tolable well," he answer-
ed, in an unemotional tone.
"You'self?"
"Bout the same," I replied,
in the same tone.
It seemed like fifteen mi-
nutes of silence followed be-
fore I finally asked, ."You
-don't .know who I am, do
you?"
"Yup," he replied, spitting a
long stream of tobacco juice
into the fireplace.
"Who am I?" I pressed him,
after another long silence.
".I don't rightly remember
your name but: you're Fred's
one-eyed boy."
I never could fool Uncle
Byron!!!

Tours and Free Blood Work at



Gulf Pines Hospital Next Week


The Gulf Pines Hospital
Laboratory will celebrate Na-
tional Medical Laboratory
a,.--r O


Week, April 10-16.
. This year's National Medi-
cal Laboratory Week thed*e is


"Laboratory Professionals:
Helping to Solve the Diagnos-
tic Puzzle." "We think that the
National Medical Laboratory
Week theme best describes
our laboratory staff's contri-
bution to the quality of patient
care and to the preservation of
human life," said Hugh McEl-
vey, laboratory spokesperson.
"By participating in the diag-
nostic process, laboratory pro-
fessionals are part of the
health care team which also
includes the attending physici-
an, nurses, and all other
health professionals."
Gulf Pines Hospital Labora-
tory will demonstrate how
their vital, role affects the
community by holding walk-
through tours of the lab. each
afternoon from 1 to 4 p.m.'
during National Medical La-
boratory Week. All visitors
may have a blood group and
type performed at no charge.
. Recent changes in the lab'
equipment enable Gulf Pines
Hospital personnel to perform
important, diagnostic tests
more accurately and quickly.
These tests aid physicians in
determining diagnosis and
treatment. A new Abbott VP
chemistry analyser allows the
laboratory staff of two Medi-
cal Technologists and one
Medical Technician to keep up


with the work load of approxi-
mately 4000 tests per month.
The instrument is an accurate
piece of equipment capable of'
performing fourteen twenty
test profiles in two hours;
These profiles allow local
physicians the ability to scre-
en many of the body's vital
organ systems at relatively
low cost to the patient..
A new Hematology instru-
ment is a Coulter Model M-430
which allows a complete blood
'cell count to be performed in
two minutes. When a patient is
bleeding, the rapid capability
to give the physicians infor-
mation on the patient's state is
vital to the health of that
patient. This instrument also
determines blood,cell indicies
which aid the doctor in
evaluating anemia.
The laboratory utilizes an.
MCA-750 coagulation instru-
ment to rapidly and accurate-
ly determine the patient's
coagulation factors which are
necessary if a patient is to clot
after injury. It is also very
useful to physicians treating
patient on Heparin or Couma-
din, two common blood "thin-
ners". .
The laboratory has now set
,up a: Bacteriology Section
which will allow a much more
rapid turn-around time on


microbiology specimens
which until now had to be sent
to a reference laboratory in
Pensacola. Bacteriology is
important in sick people in
helping the physician deter-
mine whether to treat a
patient and if so the treatment
must be appropriate for the
infecting organism.
National Medical Labora-
tory Week is co-sponsored by
the American Society of Clini-
cal Pathologists and other
groups in approximately
13,000 laboratories and 6,000
hospitals throughout the
U.S.A. Its purpose is to foster
better communication and un-
derstanding between labora-
tories, hospital employees,
and the communities in which
they serve.

DEPTH PERCEPTION
Q. Why is it so important to
see DEPTH?
A. We live in a 3-D world.
Everything we see-peo-
ple, cars, landscapes-
has length, width and
volume or depth. If our vi-
sion is impaired or under-
developed when perceiving
depth, we can bump into
things, get into accidents,
or bypass the hole when
threading a needle. The
SIX MUSCLES that con-
trol each eye must be able
to direct the two eyes at the
same spot within the, range
of a few degrees, or 3-D ef-
fects are lost' or diminish-
ed.
Q. Are there ways to correct
depth perception 'deficien-
cies?
A. That 'depends on what
causes the deficiency in
the first place. In older
people, removal of a cata-
ract from one eye will
cause a loss of depth
perception which can be
corrected by fitting a con-
tact lens. Where one eye is
higher that the other,
glasses can be prescribed
to bring the images into
line. If the eye muscles are
not coordinating properly,
visual training is effective
in many cases.

Read Grass Ads Carefully THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, APR. 7, 1983


Zoysiagrass May Not Make Trouble-Free Lawn In Fla.


BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director

About this time every year
we start seeing advertise-
ments in magazines and news-
paper supplements for a lawn
grass called zoysiagrass.
Many Horticulturists believe.
Zoysiagrass, are among the
most attractive lawn grasses
grown in the South. An estab-
lished, well maintained zoysia
lawn is a beautiful sight. But
some of the advertising claims
we see lead us to believe that
zoysia grass makes an easily
established trouble-free lawn.
This may not be true, at least
in Florida.

CARTER
because you don't have to
mow very'often.
These are the points many
of the ads we see stress and
they make a strong case for
zoysiagrass. Unfortunately,
zoysia does have some disad-
vantages, and advertisements
which fails to mention them
can be misleading.
First of all, only one kind of
zoysiagrass can be planted
from seed. It's called Zoysia
Japonica, you may hear it
referred to as Japanese or
Korean lawngrass. It has


some gpod qualities but it has
a very coarse texture more
like bahia grass than the
better Zoyia varieties. If you
want a lawn that looks like
bahia grass, you might as well,
plant bahia grass.
Zoysiagrass is available in
several varieties which pro-
duce dense, finer textured&
lawns, but all these must be
propagated vegetatively.
This means you can't plant.
from seed. You have to use,
sprigs, plugs or sod. While
Zoysia's slow growth is an;
advantage in terms of mowing
requirements, it's a definite
disadvantage when you're es-
tablishing a lawn with an
improved variety;
Zoysia grows so slowly that
it may take a' whole growing
season to get lawn coverage if
you start with plugs or sprigs.
Sodding produces an instant
lawn but you could have'
trouble with cost and .avail-
ability of sod;
Zoysiagrass also produces a
heavy thatch so Zoysia lawns
require renovation periodical-

are currently without jobs.
Both of these new laws
show that Congress can act in
a bi-partisan manner to address
major issues.
The simmering problems of
the Social Security System had
been worrying senior 'citizens
for years because they were not
sure the system would be able to
make good on its
commitments.
'The final key to resolving the
issue was the outstanding work
il, of the Social Security Advisory
Commission which worked for
months to come up with recom-
mendations to Congress which
could, on most points, be sup-
ported by a majority of both
parties "
While the jobs bill has some.
flaws, it will create hundreds of.
thousands of new jobs which,
will take unemployed individuals
off welfare and give them pro-
ductive employment.
Putting people to work has
two favorable effects on the
federal budget.
First it removes them from
the expense side of the budget
by taking them off unemploy-
ment or welfare, and second it
makes them taxpayers thus
sharing the tax load with other
citizens and relieving those
other citizens of a proportionate
share of federal taxes.


Certainly there will continue
to be partisan divisions on many
issues before Congress as there
should be in a healthy
democratic society such as ours
but it is heartening to see that
such divisions can be substan-
tially eliminated on programs of
such substance and magnitude.

I have been assured by,
Chairman John Seiberling of
the Subcommittee on Public
Lands and National Parks that
the bill to save our Osceola
National Park from phosphate
mining.will be considered this
month. I
The bill, H.R. '9, was ap-
proved by both Houses of Corn-
gress last year but vetoed by
President Reagan.
In the face of the veto, it will
probably be even more difficult
to pass the bill this year but' I
feel that the fact it has been
overwhelmingly approved by
both houses of Congress in the
past will substantially improve
its chances-
I continue to feel that
legislation prohibiting the
phosphate mining is the only
way to guarantee that the drag ,
lines will not be turned loose on
the Osceola.
Senators Chiles and
Hawkins have already re-
introduced their Osceola legisla-
tion in the Senate so the signal
should be clear to all that Florida
is extremely serious about pro-
tecting this beautiful, fragile and
ecologically valuable resource.


Because zoysiagrass grows
so slowly, it takes longer to
recover from damage than
other grasses. It will probably
need more fertilizer and water
than some other lawngrasses
you might choose. And like
any other plant grown in
Florida it has insect and
disease problems.
Pill bugs destroy Zoysia-
grass roots, causing irregular
dead patches in the lawn.
Lawn caterpillars also cause
trouble. Diseases including
brown patch, rust and leaf
spot must be controlled. Pro-
bably the most serious pest on
zoysiagrass lawns is the ne-
matode.
In spite of some very good'


characteristics, zoysiagrass is
not a super grass. Some zoysia
varieties are highly recoim
mended for top quality lawM
where time and money allow
an adequate maintenance pr~
gram. -:,Z
But if you plan to give yotui
lawn the kind of care- the
average homeowner provides
you might be better off with
the kind of lawn grass the
average homeowner has in his
yard. St. Augustine grass,.
bahia grass, and centipede are
the most popular Florida
lawngrasses because they of-
fer a good combination of lawn
quality, ease of establishment
and maintenance require-
ments. .

Bike-A-Thon to benefit child-,
ren with cystic fibrosis, ac-
cording to Mrs. Donna Har-
cus, chairman for this year's'

"The'Bike-A-Thon will in-
volve riders of all ages who
acquire sponsors for the num-
ber of miles that 'they ride
over a prescribed course and
time," said Mrs. Donna Har-
cus. "It's both fun for the
riders, and a way to raise
money for research into cystic
fibrosis, a lung and digestive
disease which attacks child-
ren robbing them of breath
-and life."

tend thanks to the following
sponsors for their generosity
