Group Supporting Authoriy Ownership
A number of citizens gathered at the Fire
Station Monday afternoon to give support to
the Port Authority in their attempt to gain
--owfiership of thli'f~~ir'e ?Cf Enginieei-rs
depot at White City to develop as a mid-Gulf
of Mexico seafood processing depot.
The Port Authority has plans for
developing the site into a point for receiving
Gulf of Mexico seafood production for
preparation of the material for shipment
overseas. The Port Authority originally had
plans to include the installation in a giant
deep water port development which would
include huge freezers to prepare the seafood
for overseas shipment.
An attempt to develop this project met
with a rebuff from St. Joe Paper Company
who had agreed to sell the Port Authority the
waterfront property for development. The
Paper Company denied a request for a
portion of the property to develop this one
project, saying they would not turn loose any
of the property until the Port Authority was
ready to develop the entire port plan, which
ificlided The iea'ood preparation and ship-
ment point as a part of the port development.
This put the Port Authority to hunting an
alternative piece of property for development
as the seafood processing point, which they
were ready to start with immediately, while
the rest of the port project has been delayed
by a serious slump in overseas shipping of
most other products. ' I
This sent the Port Authority on the trail of
the Corps of Engineers property which was
being abandoned by the Corps 'at about the

Vice President Makes
the Hard Choices
For years people in the United
States have wondered why we
,maintain a Vice President. For the
past few years, the people of Florida
have wondered why we support a
Lieutenant Governor. Not that our
Lieutenant Governor is inept or our
Vice President all but useless, but
we have all wondered why we need
these men. Why should we maintain
the office and the support for a
second place leader? Can't we
provide some other way to fill the
vacancy of leader if the need arises
without the expense of maintaining
this second place office?
We don't really know how much
Vice President George Bush is paid.
But, back to the purpose of
having a Vice President. Why is it
Last week, our Vice President,
George Bush justified his position
and his salary with one vote . .. one
very important vote to the future of
our nation. It was. a vote -nobody
would have liked casting. No doubt
,Vice President Bush would rather
have done a lot of things besides
make that particular vote. He might
have rather gone visiting in the
Democratic National Headquarters
than make the vote it was his duty to
make. He would probably have
rather admitted he stole the Carter
papers than to cast the vote he cast
last week. He made the office of Vice
President necessary and important
by casting so necessary a vote.
Vice President Bush cast the
deciding vote on funding the produc-
mon of nerve gas. Probably you
cast this particular deciding vote. In
all likelihood he would rather have
either voted against the measure or
abstained from voting. From what
we have read about Vice President
Bush and quotations from the man,
we have no other idea than that Bush
would have liked to have voted
against the poison gas bill.
We would rather have had
him be able to vote against the
poison gas bill.
The fact is, that the Russians
have a wealth of poison gas
paraphernalia and the poison gas
itself, while the United States has
virtually none. Just as we are
certain Vice President Bush didn't
want to vote for the poison gas bill,
we are just as sure the Russians
wouldn't hesitate for one moment to
use the gas on us or anyone else if
they thought there would be no
retalliation should they do so.
For this reason, Vice President
Bush recognized the necessity of his
breaking the tie which existed in the
Senate and cast the tie-breaking
vote in favor of funding poison gas
research and 'production for the
You see, Vice President Bush
recognized that it was the threat of
retaliation which kept Hitler from
using poison gas in World War II.
So, a Vice President has the duty
of making a hard decision .. . . a
decision he might not want to make
and one which he had rather not
make. When it comes to making this
decision, you need someone capable

A COUPLE OF WEEKS ago,
Newsweek magazine did an article
:entitled, "What the World Thinks of
.America". The article merely verified
what most of .us already knew- Amer-
-ica may be the favorite whipping boy of
the world, but it is also the most sought
after homeland in the 'world. If
everyone who wished to live in America
S were able to move here, it would be the
most crowded nation in the world-
; even more crowded than Japan.
According to the article,'America's
place in the world, is to set the pace for
, the rest of the world. Much of the
remainder of the world may resent our
setting the pace, but their people are
' more than willing to follow our pop

they looked to our nation a "fair

All of these industrial nations
looked to America for a "great deal" of
its leadership in business. Here we
thought our business world was going
down the drain because it was limping
along during this world-wide recession,
but the remainder of the business
oriented world looks to us as being the
example for others to follow.

sed in the article, and while our nation'

presence overseas is given failing
marks. All the while we're there to
protect the nations overseas, and they

With only one exception, nations
overseas feel our increased military
presence there enhances the chance of
war rather than deters it.
Twice in this century, the United
States has had to go to Europe to win a
war for the majority of the nations over
there, which was started by another,
more militant nation.
Now, the nations across the Atlan-
tic feel our presence there to deter
other nations from the notion they can
start a war, would only make them
more determined to start one.
ONE CATEGORY in which all
agree is that America has the higher
living standard. According to the poll,
America is a solid favorite for the
better living standard in all of the
nations mentioned. This opinion was
gathered from people who live in the
nations themselves. Regardless of our
high unemployment rate; regardless of
our high number of poor; regardless of
our thousands who are going bankrupt
every year or who are roaming the
nation in search of jobs, Americans are
thought by others to have the highest
living standard in the world.
COLUMNIST JOAN BECK picked
up one of the 'polled subjects in the
Newsweek article the other day, and
did her column on it. According to the
survey, Americans were not very sexy.
Ms. Beck wondered how such an
indictment could be with our preoccu-

It was a long time ago when
I met the tractor salesman. I
was a freshman in college and
was hitch-hiking home for the'
weekend. He was traveling
from an unknown or forgotten
place to Loxley, Alabama. My
destination was Pensacola,
Florida and I had made it to
Spanish Fort, Alabama. My
traveling companion and I had
started early that morning
just outside the city limits of
Jackson, Mississippi and we
were tired, hungry and thirsty
when the tractor salesman
picked us up.
The tractor salesman and I
hit it off right from the start. It
may have been because he
had been traveling all day and
was lonely and I was so glad to
get a ride, but we were fast
friends after the first few
Our mutual interest center-
ed around books we had read.
He was an avid reader as I
was, and, for that matter, still
am. I would imagine that the
tractor salesman, if he is still
alive (and I hope he is), is, too..
Reading is one of those habits
that, started young, stays with
one, especially if one is going
to college and has no money.
Anyway, we were having a
great time discussing some of
the books we had read when
we pulled into Loxley. It was

evening and we were still a

MYOPIA IS OFTEN
;Q. My child's glasses for see-

each year. Is that to be ex-
A. It is not uncommon for
myopia-the inability to
see distant objects clear-
ly-to increase rapidly
from its onset in childhood.
Most children'and teens to-
day have a great deal of
reading and close work to
do at school and at home.
These close visual" tasks
often put an undue strain
on the internal muscles of
the eyes. Studies have
shown a positive correla-
tion between loss of ability
to see distant objects and
the amount of close-seeing
reading-that young peo-
ple do. In recent years, op-
tometrists have seen an in-
creasing amount of near-
sighted patients whose
myopia has started in high
school or college where the
reading load is even
heavier. Sometimes a
weaker prescription for
reading or watching TV
can lessen the strain on the
eye muscles and slow down
the progression of myopia.
Myopia usually stabilizes
when we enter our mid-
twenties. Contrary to
popular myth, the wearing
of glasses will not cause
myopia to increase.

It happens to the people
you'd least expect it to.
Young, outgoing, athletic, po-
pular- the kind who are
elected to the prom court. The
kind who like to do crazy
things, have fun, take risks.
Who could imagine that driv-
ing a little too fast, drinking a
little too much, taking the
dare and diving off a bridge-
could make you spend the rest
of your life in a wheelchair?
"Spinal cord injuries hap-
pen that quickly," says Lani
Deauville, director of Flori-
da's Vocational Rehabilitation
Program. "And they are that
Deauville should know. She
was one of the bright, outgoing
ones at 17. Ex-cheerleader,
aspiring model, high school
diving champion. Brash, con-
fident the day she dove off a
seawall in 1958. The day she
was hauled out of the water,
with a broken neck. The day
she began a new life.
Today, at 42, Deauville is
still bright, outgoing, confi-
dent. She still faces life with
the same spirit, the same
optimism. The difference is,
since that day 25 years ago,
she faces life from a wheel-
chair. And she has a message.
"It can happen to you," she
says.. "Young people think
they can beat the odds. But
you could walk out the door

Spinal cord injuries do tend
to happen to young people,
especially young males. Fifty
percent of the injuries affect
people under 25; of the 385
spinal cord injuries that oc-
curred in Florida last year,
321 involved males.
Diving accidents are one of
the four main causes of spinal
cord injuries; they accounted
for about 10 percent, or 41
people in 1982. Auto and
motorcycle accidents, the
most common cause of injury, -
accounted for 42 percent, or'

Jim Bruce, who heads up
Florida's Spinal Cord Injury
Program, estimates that as
many as 80 percent of the
injuries among young people
are alcohol and drug related.
"Alcohol and drugs are
involved in a lot of these
accidents- whether they're
car accidents, gunshot
wounds, diving or whatever,"
Bruce said. "People just have
got to get the message that
drinking and driving don't
mix. And if they're hunting,
they should leave the booze in
Of course, he adds, having
the common sense to take
safety precautions is the best
way to keep from getting a
spinal cord injury.
"Prevention is what we're
emphasizing," Bruce said.
"Because once the injury
occurs, there's no going back.

Bruce also emphasizes the
importance of knowing what
to do if you're there when
someone gets a back or neck
"Injuries are created when
people get improper treat-
ment at the accident scene,"
he said. "Move the person as
little as possible. If you must
move them (to get them out of
the water or out of a car, for
instance), be sure to support
the head and neck as much as
possible to keep them inmo-
. The next thing to do is to get
that person medical attention
as quickly as possible- usual-
ly the best- way is to call an
ambulance or rescue squad.
Most spinal cord injuries
are treated at hospitals de-
signated as Acute Care Cen-
ters. There are 10 in Florida,
and each has special equip-
ment and expert staff special-
ly trained in the treatment of
spinal cord injuries.
But no matter what kind of
treatment a person gets, once
the spinal cord is injured it
will not heal.
Spinal cord injuries are
irreversible- and expensive.
Dr. Bruce estimates that total
care- over the lifetime of a
spinal cord injured person
costs about $1 million.
Avoidable accidents cause
most spinal cord injuries. It
only takes one careless: .mo-
ment. And that one moment
can cost a lifetime,

NJROTC Participates In Tramining
They arrived on trains, and
planes, buses and vans. They
came to attend i ofie-week'

training that would make
them better prepared to take
up leadership roles in the

More than 100 cadets from
Naval Junior Reserve Officer
Training Corps units from the
nation's little towns and big
cities spent a week on the
Norfolk Naval Base and NAB,
Little Creek going through
many phases of Navy life that
ranged from orientation lec-
tures to firefighting school.
They also boarded utility
landing craft at Assault Craft
Unit Two at Little Creek arid
were given the confidence of
survival training. Included in
evolutions were personnel and
barracks inspections and a
number of stern physical

and required lectures are tools
of the NJROTC Leadership
Academy that instills in ca-

The Defense Department
was one of the last to get an in-
spector general because;it had
vigorously opposed, someone
snooping around in their affairs.
. Revelations last week,
however, showed'that the Navy
paid $110 to: purchase.a part
from a private single-source
supplier that it could have got-
ten in its &wn stockroom for
four cents. In another case the
price of a simple bolt had in-
creased from 67 cents:in 1980
to $17.59 last year.
Secretary Casper Wein-
berger fortunately realized the
significance of the pattern of
overspending found by the In-
spector General and has taken
aggressive action to discipline
those who allowed such things
