Going Into the
Gulf County has officially had its property valuations
approved for fiscal year 1983-84, according to Joyce Williams
Property Appraiser for Gulf County. The assessments were
presented to the State Revenue Department early last month
for their official approval, as required by Florida law, in
anticipation for levying taxes by the various taxing bodies
throughout the county.
The approved property assessment roll is valued at
S$72,921,869, or an increase of $46,434,604 over last year's
All taxing bodies in the county have certified a mill rate
in anticipation to the TRIM notices being sent out, and the
figures on the notice are firm figures. The property rolls have
been approved by the State and the mill rates by the taxing
bodies. All taxing bodies are now bound by the figures shown
on the TRIM notices. They may reduce them, but they may
not raise them without first going to public hearings.
Williams said the TRIM notices will be sent out Monday
by her office for the County Commission, on schedule. She
said property owners have up to 25 days (until September 8),
to file any complaints or objections they may have with their
aDDraisal or valuations.
"My office will handle any complaints concerning-
mathematics on the notice, but any complaints concerning
valuations will have to go before the board which has been set
up to hear these complaints", Mrs. Williams said.
TRIM notices were sent out for the first time two years
ago, and contain information for the property owner as to the
amount of his property appraisal, what his taxes were last
year, what they would be this year if there was to be no-.

is still under investigation.
Governor Bob Graham's excellence in
education push in Florida won't mean much
change to the Gulf' County 'School District
requirements, according to 'Superintendent"
Walter Wilder. "The Governor wants a student
required to have 24 credits in order to'graduate'
in school year 1986-87, but we now require 21
credits to graduate from Gulf County Schdols".
In the-past, every county has pretty much
- done their own thing so far as requirements for
graduation are concerned, setting their own
subject accomplishments and curriculum re-
Wilder said the big difference in the credit
picture is that the state of Florida will have nine
of those 24 credits made up of elective subjects.
"That only 'leaves 15 required subjects and Gulf
County now has 16 required subjects in order to
graduate." The other five credits necessary for
-' graduation cani. be. subjects of the student's

position as far as required subjects are.
concerned.' "We already require every subject

program, except one science", Wilder said. The
Superintendent said Gulf County now required

and the state will require three. Wilder
pointed out the third science credit may cause

particularly adaptable 'to science.. "The third
science credit must 'be a laboratory- credit",
Under i the -new program, which begins
phasing in; with the next school year, students
will be required to have four English credits in
order to graduate. They must also have three
mathehatics credits and three science credits.
"Gulf County already has this exact same
requirement, except for one credit in science
which must be the lab credit", Wilder said.
In the next scnooi year, Gulf County students
must have'22 credits in order to graduate. Gulf
now has a requirement of 21. Wilder said the
average student graduating from Gulf County.
schools usually has an average of 23-plus credits
MORE CHANGES COMING
Next school term, there will be more
changes in the school program make-up,
according to Wilder. Computer courses mist be
introduced into the school curriculum. "We will
probably work in an introduction class to
computers this year, but we don't have the
hardware yet to get into the program with any
depth", Wilder said. The new state education
financial program is supposed to provide funds
for purchasing the computer hardware.
"That's one of the problems with the new,
finance program", the Superintendent said. "We
won't realize much financial relief from the
program since most of the money will be
ear-marked for certain expenditures rather than
provide relief from the financial burdens we
have in other programs now".
One of these added expenses which no added.
money has been supplied for is an increased
school day. "We're going to.have a seven period
day next year, and every time you add time to
the school day, you're also costing the district
money", the superintendent pointed out. Wilder
said the additional period may add only 30
minutes or so, depending on how the extra period
can be worked in, but it is going to cause a
,change in the school operations, beginning with
the 1985-86 school year.
"The.extra money won't mean much to our
present financial problems", Wilder said. "Our
district will receive some 10 or 11 percent more
money from the state, but most of it is
designated money for specific new programs
being started by the state".
So, over-all, there will not be much change to
the school operations this year. Next year, the
change will be slight and the following year, the
change may be enough to be noticeable by those
who do not attend school every day.

school is a major step in
every child's life. The pa-
rent's understanding of this
critical step in development
is important to the child's
emotional health and future
attitude toward school. The
child's attitude or "how he
feels about school" will de-
termine how hard he will try
and, to a large extent, how
well he will learn.
Every day parents teach
their children skills and
attitudes that are necessary
for school. However, just
before the child begins
school, he or she needs some
extra special preparation to
make this important step a
positive one. Whether the
child expresses eagerness or
reluctance to start school,
every child will feel a mix-
ture of anxiety, fear, worry, .
and"'.excitement about the.

The parent should begin to
prepare the child for school
by providing support and
assistance in understanding
of his feelings. The parent
should help the child to
understand that his feelings
are a "normal" part of the
process. Children may feel
abandoned, alone, scared of
the new environment, and
afraid they won't fit in or be
able to perform as expected. b

fice, and simply wander the
school halls. The child should
also meet the teacher, princi-
pal, and possibly some of the
other available school per-
sonnel. Before leaving, the
parent may want to take a
picture of the child at school
to emphasize the importance
of the event. At home, the
parent can talk with the child
about what they saw; they
can draw pictures together of
the school; and they can talk
further about what the child
will do in school. Parents will
want to find out what the
child expects, clear up mis-
conceptions about such
things as how long it takes to
read, discuss school rules,
and describe various activi-
ties. Parents can share their
own positive experiences
with school and can show the
child how they have learned
skills in school that have
been useful to them.
As the first day approach-
es, the parent can prepare
the child by creating a'
"normal routine" around the
home. School bedtimes
should be established. The
parent should treat going to
school as a normal part of life
-and should also avoid com-
paring the child's experi-
ences to that of brothers,
sisters, or friends. Parents
need not argue the issue of
school attendance with the
child as they can simply
explain that school is re-
quired by law.
When the day to start
school finally arrives, pa-
rents should resist their.
urges to "protect" the child
and attempt to support and
help the child to enter the
world that they must en-
counter. Parents should be
direct. They should say
"goodbye" to the child and
allow the child to board the,
bus alone or enter school
alone. If the child cries, the
parent should try' not to
overreact as most tears will
quickly disappear. Firm-
ness, patience, and reassur-
*ance from the parents will
assist the child in feeling
confident and comfortable
away from home. As parents
become involved in school
activities and as the parent.

pects of the child's perform-

Improper Soil pH Really Zaps Plants
BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
Of all the problems you're
likely to have with your
landscape plants, one of the
hardest to identify could be
improper soil pH. Some-
times, even if it should, a
plant just won't: grow very
well. When this happens, soil
pH could very well be the
problem but unless you' have
your soil analyzed, you may
think it's something else.
pH is just a scientific term
for a relative scale des-
cribing soil acid level. Low
number around 5.5 means
high acid conditions, and
high numbers up to 10 or 20,
means low acid or alkaline
conditions. Seven' means it is
Most popular Florida land-
scape ornamentals like soils
ranging from neutral to
slightly acid. Dogwood, Aza-
leas, Holly, Camellias, Hy-
drangeas, Gardenias, and
Ixora like soil that is quite
acid. Only .a few plants like
sweet soil: Yucca, Oleander
and Cabbage Palm are Flori-
da examples. Unfortunately,
alkaline soil is 'quite common
around Florida homes.
In many areas, the soil is
mostly sand, naturally low in
the organic matter that in-
creases soil acidity. Also,
building residue, lime from
stucco or cement buried in
the yard can raise soil pH.
When soil pH is a problem,
it's usually because it's too
high. That-is, the soil is too
sweet or alkaline.
The reason we worry about
soil pH is that in alkaline soil
acid loving plants can't take
up some of. the minor ele-
ments they need for healthy
growth. As a result, the plant
may have yellowy leaves and
grow in a sparse,. ,silkly
manner. The soil pH problem
may not kill the plant, but
since it is in a weakened,
condition, insects apd plant
disease can attack it more,
