It's That Time of Year Again!
The time has come to change the time.
Saturday night, the time will be advanced by an
hour to bring in Daylight Savings Time for the summer
months. The change will cause the day to start earlier
and give more daylight hours to normal work and play
hours.
Those who fail to set their clocks and watches
ahead Saturday night will arrive at church Sunday
morning in time to greet the crowds as they are leaving
or get in on only the last third of the sermon, depending
on how long your preacher preaches.
The time change will be in effect until the last
Saturday in October, when it will revert to standard
time for the winter months.
Don't forget set your watches and clocks
AHEAD by one hour.

TWo Arrests In


Burglary
The recent theft of some
$16,000 worth of electronic
gear off a boat.belonging to
Woods' Fisheries have re-
sulted in the arrest of two
Southport men by the Gulf
County Sheriff's Depart-
ment, according to Sheriff
Ken Murphy. Murphy said
Paul Lee Potts and T. James
Miller, both 18, were arrested
on Monday of this week by
investigator Phil McLeod
and officer Clifton Bell of the
Florida Marine Patrol and
charged with burglary and
grand theft.


of Boat
The burglary of the' boat
occurred on January 17 at
Wood's Fisheries, where the
electronic equipment was
taken. The'arrests also re-
sulted in the recovery of the
majority of the stolen mer-
chandise.
The investigation-was con-
ducted as a joint operation of
the. Gulf County Sheriff's
Department, Florida Marine
patrol and the Bay County
Sheriff's Department.
Both Potts and Miller are
in the Gulf County jail
awaiting first appearance.


Another Bridge
Two weeks ago, the Florida Department of
Transportation announced they would build a new
high-rise bridge across the Intracoastal Canal at
Overstreet in next year's DOT fiscal year.
Tuesday night, it was revealed a second high-rise
bridge .will be built in Gulf County, as soon as the
Overstreet bridge is finished.
In reporting on acceptance of the Corps of
Engineers surplus property at White City, Wayne
Childers said he had learned the day before that DOT
also had plans to construct a new high-rise at White
City. Childers said the location of the bridge had not
been fully decided on yet and may affect the property
site.the county hopes to secure and use for a park site.
.No details on the White City bridge were available
to The Star at press time Wednesday.

Ed Knight, owner of Ski Breeze Resort
campground in the Cape San Blas vicinity,
offered the most vocal support of banning
vehicles on the beach totally, while others
simply expressed concern over the reckless-

area hazardous to bathers and especially
children.
Knight was strongly opposed to any
vehicle traffic on the beach, saying: "How
would you home owners in town like to have
people driving across your yard? St. Joe

allowed at the Cape?"
Two women residents of the area
expressed a concern over the reckless

she would not allow her children on the

Otis Pyle, David Ambrose, Mike

and several others all expressed concern
over the environment and sloppy housekeep-
ing of people who use the area and wanted
some system set up to maintain their use of
the beaches and protect the rights .of the
property owners and the environment.
Board attorney William J. Rish said
state law already protected the property
owners with trespass laws.
As a result of the discussion-which
developed into arguments and shouting at
times, with Chairman Owens forced to call
for order on several occasions-the county
will furnish financing for active patrol on
the entire beach area, especially on the
week end.


William C. Green of Pensacola had :is
flight home interrupted early Tuesday
morning, when his single-engine plane ran
out of gas in the Gaskin Wildlife Reserve.
Green was on his way home from
Daytona, when he ran out of gas near the
Gulf-Bay county line and went down near
Wetappo Creek at about 7:30 a.m., EST.
Green was not injured in the crash landing
and walked out to SR-22 where he caught a
ride with some Forestry department people
who' took' him to Panama City to seek aid.
Green had called Panama City airport
just before the crash and said he was out of
gas and was going down. He had scheduled a
re-fueling stop at Panama City, but
apparently strong head winds had caused
him to use fuel at a faster rate than he.
anticipated.
When Green arrived at Panama City
airport, he was closely questioned by


authorities due to the mysterious circum-.
stances surrounding the crash. The early
morning hour, origination and destination of
the flight caused authorities to be suspicious
of the flight.
After it was found that Green was just a
private pilot on his way home to Pensacola,
he was allowed to continue on his way home,
Tuesday afternoon.
The plane flipped over on its top in a -
thicket of small pine saplings after the
emergency landing by Green. Although the
plane suffered extensive damage, Green
never had a scratch.

started immediately after it left_Panama

available.
Attorney William J. Rish
said the several items on a
list provided by Farmers'
Home had been complied
with in order to qualify for
the financial services of
FHA. He said more than the
required 359 users had been
signed up for the system.
The list of 13 conditions
was completed Tuesday
night with the presentation
of a supply agreement be-


tween the City of Port St.
Joe and Highland View.
This deal has nothing to do
with the Beach system, but
since Highland View will be
taking water off the Beach's
supply pipe, FHA wanted to
know if a proper agreement
had been reached between
the parties.
Work on the system,
which will supply water
from Highland View to Gulf
Aire Subdivision, is expect-
ed to get under way by early
summer.


84-85 School Calendar Approved


Unsightly
With spring clean-up in full swing in and around Port St.
Joe In April, emphasis is placed on unsightly areas of the
City. Pictured above is one of those areas, showing the


traffic pattern on U.S. Highway 98 at the intersection of
Monument and Constitution Avenues. The area needs to be
spruced up to introduce tourists, strangers, travellers and
natives to a pleasing sight as they come into the City. These
thistles are at least 18 inches high. The grass needs mowing
- badly! -Star photo


The Gulf County School Board has
approved the school calendar for the
next school year, which has the
dubious feature of classes beginning
in the middle of the summer and
ending the last of May of next year.
Superintendent of Schools, Walter
Wilder said the calendar has about the
same features and covers about the
same time frame as the current year.
"There are very few changes, al-
though new state classroom regula-
tions will cause some re-arranging of
the school day next year".
Teachers will report to work in


mid-August for the 1984-85 school
year. Their first reporting day is
August 13, for three days of prepara-
tion before students report for classes
on Thursday, August 16.
School will not be in session on
Monday, September 3, Labor Day.
A two-day holiday in late November
will be the only other pause in regular
school activities until the Christmas
holidays.
Students will have a Thursday
and Friday holiday for Thanksgiving
on November 22 and 23.
Christmas will feature a two week


vacation, running from Monday,
December 24 through Friday, Janu-
ary 4.
Then it's back to classes until
April 1, when the Easter holiday will
be stretched out into a seven day
suspension of classes. Students will
get out of school on Monday, April 1
and remain out until Tuesday, April 9.
The last day of school for the
students will be Tuesday, May 28.
Teachers will remain for the remain-
der of the week and start their
summer vacation at the end of the
day, Friday, May 31.

Not A Word About



Competence


The Tallahassee Democrat edi-
torialized last Friday on the
subject, "Wetlands Law, Don't Let
It be Watered Down".
Here in Gulf County, we live in
what could be identified as wet
lands. Our topography is flat, it's
wet and we have an abundance of
the plant life which have been
identified in the criteria of deciding
what is wet lands and what is not
wet lands. Our county is just a few
feet above sea level and some of it
is below sea level.
; A little over a year ago, the
County Commission passed an
ordinance prohibiting the burial of
hazardous waste within a mile of a
running or still body of water. This
effectively eliminated Gulf County
as a hazardous waste disposal area
because there isn't any property in
the county which will fit this
criteria. We are blessed with plenty
of water.
Our water and wet lands have
come under the governance of the
Northwest Florida Water Man-
agement District along with the
-remainder of the Panhandle. So far
as we have been able to tell, the
.District is doing a good and
:competent job of their duties at a
,nominal cost and a minimum of
:harsh regulations. They are effec-
tive while remaining almost invis-
ible to the general population.
They are not prima donnas as is the
:case with many other powerful



S: Who's

Florida's position as number
one in the nation in business
,climate is being attacked. A lobby
group opposed to Governor Gra-
-:ham's unitary tax is referring to
;.the claim as "tooth-fairy econom-
ics" and saying it has a chilling
effect on the business world in
:"Florida.
Since, we're not big business,
-we don't know from experience
-how the unitary tax affects the
:business community with any
certainty. We do know that an
-organization can be formed to-
oppose almost any tax which is
added to our already sizeable tax
:burden.
We know, the United States has
the least tax burden for its people
of almost any industrialized nation
,in the world. All we can say to that
is, we pity the rest of the world.
Last week, Lieutenant Gover-
nor Wayne Mixson spoke in Port St.


agencies of the state, which use
their position as well as their state
budgets to publicize their impor-
tance to all who will read or listen.
In its editorial of Friday, the
Democrat inserted a sentence
which identified the Northwest
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict as "the most poorly financed
district" in the state.
Not a word was said about their
effectiveness or their competence.
Nothing was said about how their
operations compared with other
districts in the state. If a compar-
ison had been made, we -would
wager that the Northwest District
.is as effective, if not more so, in the
duties it is supposed to perform as
is any other district in the state.
Port St. Joe's Tom Coldewey is
chairman of the district and we all
know how Tom Coldewey operates.
He uses the least of amount of
money necessary and does a
tremendous job for everyone.
Could it be that the other
districts in the state are over-
financed? We would like to see the
Democrat dig into this matter.
North Florida's wet lands have
no problems which weren't already
there when the District started
operation. North Florida's
marshes and swamps may not be
preserved as marshes and swamps
but their effectiveness will be
preserved as wet lands, regardless
of what happens to the property
itself.


Right?


Joe, reiterating the statement that
Florida is number 1 in business.
Was Lt. Governor Mixson wrong?
Was his statement merely one of
convenience or justification? We
think not. Like we said, we are not
privy to the inside information of
big business, but we are privy to an
acquaintence with Lt. Governor
Mixson and he has never lied to us.
We seriously do not believe Lt.
Governor Mixson would have made
the statement if it were not so.
The business lobbyist also
stated, in attacking the money
source, "The latest tax returns
indicate a $26 million shortfall in
corporate receipts' suggesting the
unitary tax may actually have cut
revenues. Maybe. What we would
like to have explained is why there
is also a shortfall in other tax
sources. It couldn't be because of a
reduced economy, nation-wide,
could it?


Scared of the Dark!


There has never been a kid
that lived that was more
scared of the dark than I was.
If there was anything that I
feared more than the dark it
was going to someone's
house to spend the night. and
wetting the bed. Needless to
say I didn't spend the night
out often.
It has always been. a
mystery to me as to why I
feared the dark. I can't
remember any specific thing
that I feared, but I was as
scared of the dark as a
fifteen year-old country boy
is on his first date with a city
gal.
One thing that caused my
fear, I think, was there was
no TV. Many nights we would
sit on the front porch, es-
pecially during the summer,
and the adults would tell
scary stories. Admittedly,
some of those stores border-
ed on the realm of down-right
lies. They were, however,
very interesting and enter--
taining. Most of them would
send cold chills down our


spines and make our ears
tingle. They also made us
scared to. go to the outhouse
before going to bed. That's
the main reason I wet the bed
for so long.
One night my next oldest
brother and I were visiting
our Uncle Ernest. Uncle
Ernest was an excellent
story teller and that particu-
lar night we had a long
story-telling session. Uncle
Ernest was telling all the
stories. He had a little show
business in him because he
always saved the best until
last.
The last story he told was
about a strange light that
would follow people down a


dark, lonely road. No matter
what they did, run fast or
Stop dead-still, the light
would maintain a distance
even with them. It looked, he
stated, to be about thirty feet
from them, out in the woods
and about twenty feet in the
air. It was a bright glowing
light that seemed to be about
the size of a basketball. The
most horrifying thing about
the light, he went on, was
that it made no sound.
Immediately after telling
this horrifying tale, he grab-
bed me and tried to pull a
loose tooth that had been
bothering me for some time.
He was something of an

"Ain't"


- By.Kesley Colbert
Did you see in the news
this week where Great Bri-
tain broke off diplomatic
relations with Libya? Now
don't panic I'm not about to
get philosophical as to the
rightness or wrongness of
that move; besides we've got
enough problems right here
with American foreign
policy to keep us occupied,
we sure don't need to get too
heavy into someone else's
problems. And another
thing, to be absolutely honest
with you, I don't even know
what philosophical means -
I just thought I'd throw that
in 'cause it sounded kinda
high-faluting. I do, however,
know what a philosopher is
- he's a guy that sits around
and thinks of how "he
thinks" things ought to be
and then he writes them
down like they were the


,gospel. Some people readhis
stuff and g'et takenifn by it. I
never have heard of a case
where a philosopher actually
did anything or tried any-
thing or experienced
anything that he was
philosophizing on he just
thought about it and then
wrote it down. Well, I don't
have much use for philoso-
phers. A philosopher is one
of those guys that writes
those children's books, but
he doesn't have any children
- you know how much good
you can get out of those
books!
My favorite kind of philo-
sopher is the one that studies
a little on old Bill Shakes-
peare and then says his un-
happy childhood inspired
him to write "Romeo and
Juliet". Now, Sir William

It's Hard to Handle Country Columnists Who Have Big


City


Ideas


HERE AT THE STAR, we prob-
ably have the distinction of being the
.smallest weekly in the South with two
bona-fide columnists on our staff who
grind out their thought-provoking,well
*researched pieces of literature each
and every week.
With reasonable punctuality, they
:come ambling into the office and
thrust out a grubby fist in which there
:are a couple of pieces of paper which
have been torn off a calendar, a meat
wrapper or two, the back of a paper
:sack or a strip of toilet paper with a
-few words scribbled on it in hard lead
:pencil. One of the columnists even
brought in a piece one day, written on
,the back of a popsicle wrapper.
But, you learn to put up with
:such habits after a while and work
:around it.
The columnist which can read,
read a story the other day of a writer
who was actually paid money for
ohis efforts and passed the information
On to the other columnist and now I
have a real problem on my hands.
I keep telling them about the
prestige, the recognition and notoriety
they are getting through The Star


which is read all over this nation of
ours. Also, I provide them with their
name in bold face type right under the
article title, telling the world who
wrote that .piece of literature.


There was none of that.
TAKE WENDELL CAMPBELL.
Wendell is the oldest of our two
columnists. Oldest in service,


r

ETAOIN.SHRDLU

LBy: Wesley R. Ramsey


If you noticed in last week's
paper, both my esteemed columnists
were hinting for money. And, like true
writers, they were subtle in their
hints. There wasn't any of this
traditional, "Baby needs a new pair of
shoes" or "Our humble home needs a
new roof" or "Grandpa is coming to
live with us and needs round-the-clock
nursing, which I'm going to have to
pay for".


Wendell. Don't let your bald head
flush so! Wendell has been with us
here at The Sar for more than a year,
now. His Siad Phantry is read far and
wide. He even bought himself a hat
like the one worn by the cartoon on his
column heading, so people would
recognize him as he walked down the
street. One of his fans did recognize
him the other day and tore the seat out
of his pants as it chased Wendell up a
tree.


Wendell used the method of
explaining how lunch money at school
is costing him more these days to let
me know, in his gentle, Gonzales
upbringing, that he needed more


money for his efforts.
Wendell just doesn't realize all
that we have done for him here at The
Star. Why, when we took him on, he
couldn't even spell "columnist" .
and now he are one!
Still, Wendell has been hinting
around that he isn't well enough paid
for his efforts. He forgets (convenient-
ly, I think) that we gave him a handful
of old forms we had printed up about a


year ago and told him he could use the
backs to write his column on. Really,
Wendell, if you get in a real tight, you
can use one of those old forms to write
home to your family, when you ask
them to send you some money. I don't
want to limit your use of that gift too
much.
Wendell just doesn't know how
lucky he is. If our printing department
hadn't made the error on the printed
side of the form, so it couldn't be sent
to the customer, he wouldn't have it.
Rather than his writing on the blank
side, the customer would be writing on
the printed side and Wendell would
have to go back to his bathroom
tissue.

.THEN THERE'SKESLEY Col-
bert.
First, let me set you straight on
something. It wasn't Kesley who
turned in the copy written on toilet
paper. I hear tell they shun such
niceties up in his native west
Tennessee, so Kesley would not have
much of an acquaintance with toilet
paper even to write on.


But you put shoes on a guy like
Kesley, send him off to Tampa to
write about the Dark Continent; then
send him to Tennessee to a wedding,
and then to Augusta, Georgia to cover
the Master's Tournament and he gets
all bent out of shape because some
trouble maker told him it wasn't the
proper thing for him to have to pay his
own expenses.
Now, that's gratitude for you.
Kesley got to use the 18 highest-priced
spittoons in the nation and he's
griping about it.
I know at least a dozen people in
Tennessee who have never had the
pleasure of depositing a wad of Levi
Garrett-flavored expectorant in the
12th cup of Augusta National Country
Club and probably never will.
Kesley has had that opportunity
and if it wasn't for his association with
The aar he might have died at age 94
and never had that opportunity.

SO, YOU SEE, fellows, you are
well paid "in kind". You have vistas
opened for you that might have
forever remained closed.

darkness. There I stood,
scared to go home in the dark
and just as scared to go back
to Uncle Ernest's porch. And
he wouldn't let my brother go
home with me.
I took a blood oath that
night that some day I would
get even with him. What I
had in mind was beating him
up and making him scared of
me, but right then I had more
important things on my
mind; the main thing being
how I was going to get home
without that big, silent ball of
fire catching me.
I didn't have to ponder my
dilemma long because Uncle


Ernest made my decision for
me. He screamed, "You big
baby! I'm going to pull tha
tooth tonight if it's the last
thing I do!" Then he ran foi
me.
He was about two steps
from me when I broke and
ran...well, I didn't exactly
run. My trip home that nighi
was more akin t6 flying
Thinking back, I'm certain
that if it had been recorded
on film it would have looked
like the Road Runner blazing
down the road with a trail of
dust behind him. No ball of
fire or rocket could have
caught me that night..
Thank goodness I'm nol
scared of the dark any more

long: time but it wasn't

ago and I contend that
nobody alive today can
truthfully say how. he came
to write "Romeo and what's
her name" or any other of
his fine plays. If I was called
upon to venture a guess I'd
say old Bill was inspired by
the need for money. But I
want you to understand
that's just a guess no
philosphizing here.

tain breaking -off relations
with Libya and my soliloquy
on philosophers? Keep digg-
ing, it's got to be here some-
where. When I read that arti-
cle on the split between those
two countries I immediately
thought of Will Rogers. Boy
howdy, now he would have
had something to say about
that situation that 'would
have been witty and truthful
and made sense. Will Rogers
could put it in the right per-
spective in a New York
minute. Will was known as
the old Cowboy Philosopher
- but he weren't no philoso-
pher, He just searched and
wrestled with a problem,
situation or individual till he
got the right angle on it and
then he let y6u have it. You
see a philosopher is just
guessing but Will was right.
There's a big difference.
I never met Will Rogers,
he died in a plane crash near
Point Barrow, Alaska, 12
years before I was born, but
were best offriends. I have
read everything that I could
get my hands on written by
or about William Penn Adair
Rogers. Between 1922 and
1935 his Weekly Articles qnd
Daily Telegrams that were
syndicated in all the leading
newspapers in the US. (and
-if Will's articles weren't in it,
then it wasn't much of a
paper) kept thefolks abreast
of the major events and peo-
ple of that era.
Say, I'm not about to at-
tempt to tell you about Will's
style or his writings as that
would be impossible for a
guy that don't know no more
than I do. And I'm not about
to. tell anybody how to live
his life, but if I may offer a
suggestion-if you're tired of
Cagny and Lacy, the "B"
team, the Dukes of Hazzard
reruns (it's the same chase
scene every week) etc., then
do yourself a favor beg,
steal, or borrow a book-of
Will's saying and get a real
insight as to what makes this
country tick. Much of his
writing is as timely today as
it was when he cormposed it
years ago. You want an ex-
ample? Will once said, "I'm
not a member of an organiz-
ed political party I'm a
Democrat". You been
reading the papers lately?
You see what I'nm getting
at everytime- some big
,story breaks somewhere
around the world, I wonder
what WR would have to say
about it. Politics, he loved it,
and what a field day he'd
have during an election
year. He-also said "We have
the best Congress money can
buy". Say, that rings a bell.
Now, you'll find no malice in
Will's jokes 'cause there was
none in his heart, and that
was one of the keys to his
success. I tell you, we could
use a guy like Will today. I
guarantee you he would add
some numerous insight to
the Reagan Mondale Hart
Jackson show' that's un-
folding this year. Somehow,
I feetwe're really going to be
confused before this act
folds. Best thing about .Will
he. thought less of
philosophers than I do.

Kesley

Big Sale Planned


by Merchants


Port St. Joe's merchants
are planning for a big day on
June 2, to welcome summer
and tourists back to the area.
The day will feature a
community-wide flea mar-
ket, concessions operations
and outdoor sale by the
merchants themselves.
Plans now are to close Reid
Avenue to vehicular traffic,
turning it into one big private
and public market place.
Private individuals will be
encouraged to reserve a
space on the street to have
their own private flea market
operation of sale of hand-
made crafts. Merchants will
also be showing their sale
items on the street.
Those desiring to put up a
table and offer items for sale
or operate a food booth,


should call Alden Farris at
the City Hall and reserve
your space. Only those' who
have reserved spaces will be
allowed to set up shop on. the
street on June 2. There is no
charge for the spaces, but all
will be allotted on a first
come, first served basis.
Several other activities for
the. day are being planned
and worked up, but final
details have not been firmed

By Dr. .
Wesley Grace
VITAMINS & VISION
Q. Can a shortage of Vitamin
A cause a decline in the
ability to see clearly at
night, especially when
driving?
A. Twenty percent of the
population suffers from a
shortage of Vitamin A.
This shortage is at-
tributed to excess dieting,
working under bright
lights for long periods of
time, watching too much
television, and overex-
posure to glaring
sunlight. Driving at night,
with bright headlights
coming toward you, is an
activity that dips into the
body's normal reserve of
Vitamin A.
A. Prolonged Vitamin A de-
ficiency can lead to night
blindness, a condition
which makes it increas-
ingly difficult in adjusting
from dark to light areas.
Chronic pink eye (con-
junctivitis) may also
develop.
Eating a carrot a day will
not bring your Vitamin A
requirements up to par.
Most of the Vitamin A we
need comes from liver,
fish and otherprotein and
fatty foods like whole
milk and butter. If you
don't eat these foods, you
should consider using a
synthetic Vitamin A sup-
plement.

through fair play, good

leaders providing the exam-
ple. It is strictly against the
policy of Dixie Youth
Baseball for any person,
either as a participant or a
spectator, to engage in
arguments, to use abusive
language, to harass' 'um-
'pires,;'or t W',ehlbit -"any
behavior not in concert with
the general intention of this
policy statement. Team
coaches are required to
abide by this policy state-
ment, and all parents and

couraged to do so


d Thing
we hadn't had a one in the
eight years I have been
Sheriff", Murphy said. "The
prisoners delight in finding
ways to set off that alarm."
Murphy said the state sold
the county a number of small
supposedly fire-proof bags
for the prisoners to use to
store their personal belong-
ings in. "One of those fire-
proof bags was the cause of
one of the seven fires", he
said.
Murphy said prisoners are
always dreaming up
schemes to obtain liquor and
marijuana in their cells. The

School Has No
Responsibility
Parents of students at Port
St. Joe High School are ad-
vised that all activities for
seniors which are school
sponsored and have school
personnel chaperoning
either are held on school pro-
perty, or have the school as
the point of departure and
return for the activity.
No beach cottages are be-
ing school sponsored or
school chaperoned.


s In Jail
most recent method was to
roll a newspaper into a tight
roll, like a fishing pole. A
piece of string was attached
and dropped out a window of
the jail, where someone on
the outside attached the
desired articles. Prisoners
were allowed to have fruit in
their cells until it was found
they were stashing the peel-
ings in a can under their
bunks and allowing it to.
ferment into a strong wine.
Murphy said most of the
prisoners in the Gulf County
jail were working and that,
despite their actions, about
14 have been baptized in the
last year as the result of
ministries of area churches
and christian groups.

SSelection of Annuals Produces Colorful Blossoms


BY ROY LEE CARTER
O County Extension Director
Annual flowering plants
with their seemingly infinite
variety of flower color and
plant form fit into almost any
landscape situation. They
provide that necessary touch
of color to an often drab
landscape. Annuals when


planted in containers can add
a splash of color to a porch,
deck or patio area. They cah.
also be enjoyed as fresh and
dry cut flowers.
Annuals are especially
valuable in Florida. Many of
them bloom during winter
months, contributing splen-
didly toward a colorful land-

Rev. Huft

Speaks to

Rotary

Rev. Jerry Huft, pastor of
the St. James Episcopal
Church, presented an Easter
message to the Rotary Club
last Thursday.
Explaining Easter as the
ultimate sacrifice by God,
Rev. Huft explained why
Easter was necessary for
man because it saw the
sacrifice of an offering pro-
vided by God. Rev. Huft
explained that Biblical his-
tory showed the Jewish na-
tion and individuals in trou-
ble with God when the
sacrifice was one made by
the efforts of man, rather
than being provided by God.
Huft explained that Cain was
in trouble with God because
he insisted on making a sac-
rifice of produce he had rais-.
ed with his own hands rather'
than using the unblemished
lamb which had been provid-
ed for that purpose by God.
"Only the perfect sacrifice
provided by God would be
acceptable by God as man's
sacrifice for sin. Thus it was
necessary for Jesus to be that
sacrifice", he said.
The speaker said, "The
day he gave us his body,
blood and a new command-
ment, 'Thou shalt love thy
neighbor as thyself' marked
the removing of a barrier
between man and God."
Rev. Huft pointed out that
the :observance of Maundy
Thursday, last Thursday,
marked the day the, Lord
gave the command to love
one another.
Guests of the club were

be greatly influenced by the
available light in an area.
Some annuals such as mari-
golds and agerantums, per-
form best in full sun. Others,
such as impatient and dah-
lias, grow best in areas
receiving several hours, of
morning or afternoon sun.
There are no flowering annu-
als that will perform well
under heavy shade, however,
annuals such as crossandra
and tuberous begonia grow
best in areas receiving no
direct sunlight.
Flower beds should be
prepared before plants are
purchased. Allowing plants
to. remain in their original
containers for prolonged
periods after purchase can
have a negative effect on
their performance after
planting. Purchase plants
when you're ready and plant
them as soon as possible,
preferably within twenty-
four hours.


After beds are -prepared
and the kinds and quantity of
annuals to be planted are
determined, purchase good
quality plants. Look for
young, healthy, disease and
insect-free plants with dark
green foliage. It is not
necessary that plants are in
bloom when purchased. If
plants reduced in price for
sale have been subjected to
water stress, are tall and
spindly or have nutrient
deficiency symptoms, they
are certainly not a bargain
and should not be purchased.
Plants that have been impro-
perly maintained or held too
long seldom recover, and if
they do, they will never reach
their full potential.' This is
true especially with snapdra--
gons, pansies and zinnias.
These guidelines can make
your flower garden more
successful and provide joy
and beauty for you and your
Neighbors.

THE GREAT TIDE
The Great Tide is a roman-
tic historical novel of a
fabulous era in Floria
which tells the story of a
boom-town Gulf port, plan-
tation life in Florida's fabu-
lous West Coast in the
1830's and 1840's, and the
back ground of a beautiful
head strong Caroline
Nicholas Green Chohran
who dominated the lives of
three men in the city of St.
Joseph. Stronger than any
other among its dramatic
characters, is Caroline her-
self, a great lady in setting
of political duel, and
brawls, a schemer for pos-
session and luxury. The
Great Tide will sweep you
along in such excitement
while reading this great
novel (It will make a
wonderful Easter gift).

Way, he still feels that this is
a much safer situation than
allowing unlimited access to
the highway in this area and
does not feel these areas are
made hazardous with the
curb and gutter being adja-
cent to the traveled roadway.

Full Medicare health in-
surance protection is avail-
able to people in the North
Florida area who suffer from
permanent kidney failure
and who need dialysis or a
kidney transplant, Ann Ki-
nard, Social Security field
representative for Gulf
County, said recently.
To be eligible for Medi-
care, a person must either be
an insured worker or the
spouse or child of an insured
worker. To be insured, a
worker must have enough
credit for work covered by
Social Security.
Medicare protection gen-
erally starts with the third

course of maintenance dialy-
sis.treatments begin.

er if the person takes part in
a self-dialysis training pro-
gram in an approved facility
and he or she expects to
self-dialyze or if the person is
admitted to an approved
hospital for a kidney trans-
plant.
Medicare protection will
end twelve months after the
month a person no longer
requires dialysis or 36
months after a kidney trans-
plant. It may last longer,
however, if there are compli-
cations.

Reports

The Florida Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences has
released valuable information
concerning farm labor in
Florida. While overall employ-
ment in agriculture has remain-
ed constant since in the 1950's,
the number of family workers
has declined from 64,000 to
26,000. The number of hired
workers has increased from
43,000 to 84,000.
No precise figures are
available for migratory workers
but in the United States as a
whole, the number of migratory
workers has declined from ap-
proximately 217,000 in 1979 to
115,000 in 1981.
There are no estimates as to
the number of illegal aliens
working in farming in Florida
and their situation will be ad-
dressed in major immigration
reform legislation soon to reach
the floor of the House of
Representatives.
Agricultural interests are
seeking an expanded guest
worker program to enable
foreign nationals to come into
the United States at planting
and harvesting times. There are
some jobs in the fields which
American workers do not seem
to want and agricultural pro-
ducts must be planted and
harvested at precise times.
Our immigration laws are
out of date and need major im-
provements. I am confident that
the situation facing American
agriculture will be addressed
during the upcoming debates.

A subcommittee, of ,the
Committee on Science and
Technology, which I have the
honor to chair, has been holding
hearings on the Department of
Energy's health and environ-
ment programs. The DOE en-
vironmental programs fund
research in carbon dioxide,
nuclear medicine, risk analysis,
effects of radiation on humans,


human illnesses including
cancer and cardiovascular
diseases. The research focus is
on understanding the long-term
health and environmental ef-
fects of exposures to radiation
and energy-related chemicals.
I am concerned by DOE's
failure to adequately fund this
research which is vital to our na-
tion. Reports my committee has
received indicate that three na-
tional labs may be closed for in-
adequate funding and this we
should not permit to happen.

*

Almost two million children
are reported missing each year.
The vast majority are runaways,
many of whom return after a
few days on their own. The fact,
remains, however, that up to
50,000 are never heard from
again.
Congress has acted and
passed the Missing Children's
Act to establish a nation-wide
network of information about
missing children so that the FBI
and local police departments
can communicate by computer
and link up with the latest
available information about
each abduction.
Stealing a child is a cruel
and vicious crime. Most of the
children who disappear in this
way are never found alive and
we must beef up federal
criminal sanctions to insure
swift and sure punishment for
those found guilty of taking a
child.
I believe you will see further
action by Congress in the near
future to strengthen existing
laws and further provide
assistance to the families of
missing children.
One thing I would urge each
and every one of you to do is to
talk with your children. Insure
that they understand not to talk
with strangers or to accept rides
in strange cars. These are our
children and we must do all we
can to protet them.


the person must pay a
premium to have this protec-
tion. The monthly premium
is $14.60 at this time.
