Ambulance


"Conservativ
The County Commission received their
first inkling of what a paid ambulance
service would cost the County Tuesday,
when Andy Millergren an emergency
medical supervisor for Bay Medical Center
gave the County a proposal of what a
"conservative" ambulance operation would
cost and what the County would need in the
way of personnel.
Millergren had a $263,029.99 price tag
placed on his suggested package, but
pointed out it wasn't as drastic a step as the
first figures would suggest.
Millergren, who pointed out he was not
bidding on providing the service, but was
only showing the Board some guidelines and
estimates for future consideration in
budgeting, etc., suggested that under his
proposed plan, the Sheriff's Department
personnel would be utilized as emergency
people and the present Civil Defense set-up
would also be incorporated in the new

emergency services corps.
"You'll need one director for the entire
county and two crews providing two
emergency medical technicians per ambu-
lance operating on three 24-hour shifts per
week", Millergren summed up.
Bill Lamar, director of Civil Defense for
the past three years, made part of
Millergren's plan easy by tendering his
resignation at Tuesday's meeting. Lamar is
moving to South Carolina on August 1.
Millergren pointed out the County would
not have to produce $263,029.99 in new
money. He pointed out that under a plan of
operation other than the present volunteer
service, a charge would be made on every
ambulance run. "You will collect an
estimated $98,779.69 in service charges",
Millergren said. In addition, the county is
presently paying approximately $45,000 a
year for the present service, $20,000 for Civil
Defense and suggested contributions frori


Bay and Calhoun counties for serving their
out-lying areas such as Mexico Beach and
Kinard.
The net cost figure presented by
Millergren was an estimated $89.545 in new


county funds being put into the service.
Millergren said he felt the full-time paid
service would also evolve into a more
advanced service than is presently offered,

Registration Rises


Supervisor of Elections, Cora Sue
Robinson, announced this week her office
would be open Monday through Saturday
from 9:00 a.m., to 5:00 p.m., through
Saturday, August 4, for the purpose of
keeping the voter registration books open
for those who care to register to vote in
the fall primaries.
The registration books will be closed
to all new registrants on August 4 until
after the second primary election.'
Robinson said a July Fourth voter

she registered 20 new voters at the Tim

The Supervisor said there are now

,Major Repair


Made to Line

The City of Port St. Joe received a permit from the
Department of Environmental Regulation last week to
make temporary disposal of its waste water while the main
line from the collection site to the treatment plant was
being replaced. The City took advantage of the
maintenance shut-down of St. Joe Paper Company to make
the needed pipe replacement. St. Joe Paper contributes
about 94 percent of the flow to the Wastewater plant.
The present pipe is made of twisted steel and has been
patched and repaired several times over the past 10 years.
Plant manager, Bob Simon, has informed the Commission
the old main line was getting "in dangerous condition. If it
bursts during operation, you'll shut down everything
around here while repairs are made".
The Commission decided to replace the 32-inch main
line before it burst. The job is expected to be complete
before the scheduled re-starting of the paper mill next
Thursday.
HIRE MORE MEN
Interim Police Chief, Robert Maige, came before the
Commission Tuesday of last week with two plans for
operation of his department which would require nine and
ten men, respectively. The police force presently has six
patrolmen on duty.
Maige said the manpower just isn't there to do a
credible job of law enforcement. "If we have one man sick
or someone on vacation, we're in trouble", Maige said.
After considering Maige's request, Commissioner Bill

School Day Longer in Fall


After several months of talking
about it and making plans, the School
Board officially decided it would go
with a seven period day in the next
school year, rather than continue the
present six period day.
Superintendent of Schools, Walter
Wilder said, that while the school day
is being increased by another full
50-minute period, students will only be
faced with staying at school from 15 to
25 minutes longer each day. "Teach-
ers will see no lengthening of their
day".
Wilder said the Board had the
option of the school day remaining the
same at six 50-minute periods per


day; changing to five 60-minute
periods or going with the seven
50-minute period day. "The seven
period day gives the student more
flexibility on his. elective subjects and
gives the District more state money",
Wilder said. The new period structure
will mean $92,000 more to the county
in state money.
The increased number of periods
in the school day also puts the schools
in a better position in its increased
credit requirements for graduation.
Students can get the required number
of necessary subjects and have more
versatility in making their choice in
elective subjects offered.
Doug Kent made a suggestion to


the Board that it consider creating
"middle Schools" in the county to
"lessen peer pressure for seventh and
eighth grade students". Kent said the
new system would make the transition
from elementary to high school easier
to adjust to by students, giving them a
chance to "catch up" to the different
environment of high school.
The Board is committed to
completion of the new Wewahitchka
Elementary School at the present
time and has all its capital outlay
building funds committed for some
time. The board agreed to appoint a
committee to study the idea and make
recommendations after a complete
study of the matter.


Taxable Property Values Up $33 Mil


Property Appraiser Joyce Wil-
liams revealed this week that prelim-
inary figures show Gulf County will
have a total taxable valuation of
$312,069,849 for the coming tax year.
Mrs. Williams pointed out the figure is
tentative and will not be official until
after the TRIM notices have been sent
out and all insolvencies, double
entries and errors corrected.


Mrs. Williams advised the County
commission of the preliminary figure
Tuesday and advised them they could
proceed with their budget work at any
time.
The new valuation reflects a $33
million increase from last year's
taxable valuation of $279 million.
"Most of this increase in valuation


was in District Four where consider-
able building activity has increased
values of real property", Williams
said. She said the great majority of
the increase was due to the building
boom along the beaches. "Other than
improvements to property, valuations
are largely the same as last year",
Williams said.

Stay

Jesse Jackson's trip to Central
America and Cuba has backfired
on his campaign for the Democra-
tic nomination for President. Jesse
Jackson has just been trying too
hard to curry the favor of the
voter-like many other politi-
cians-and drew the opposite kind
of publicity to the kind he had
planned to evoke from his trip and
his activities.
Even conservative James Kil-
patrick, who usually has a pretty
good grasp on things, chastised
Jackson's trip as being something
the United States could very well
have gotten along without.
Kilpatrick-and subsequently
other writers with a large staff to
investigate such things--castigat-
ed the Jackson trip as having done
nothing more than bring back a


Just about the time we thought
the United States was becoming a
nation of cynical, hard-boiled,
self-seeking people who thought
nothing of the other fellow and his
well-being, nor had any special
thoughts for our flag or national
heritage; Along comes something
"to jolt us' back to reality and
observe that most Americans love
America and want it preserved for-
ever. This attitude among our
people causes us to realize that the
young men of this nation would
take up arms and go to war and
fight and die once more to preserve
their country.
The two things which caused
our faith in our people to be
renewed were the fireworks dis-
play here in Port St. Joe last
Wednesday night and the refur-
-bishing of the Statue of Liberty.

One can't blame Jesse Jackson
.too much for thinking the United
States needed some more crimin-
: als. We're sure it was an honest
. mistake anyone could make.
If one reads the papers regu-
'larly, we see the FBI in the
business of adding to the criminal
population.
7: We always thought it was the
job of the FBI to catch criminals
who had committed crimes. Now,
we see where must be the FBI's job
to see if a person, great or small, is
gullible and greedy enough to
commit a crime if the circum-
stances were to present themselves

group of criminals, mostly charged
with drug trafficking offenses.
One thing we don't need more
of in this nation is more criminals.
We have enough of those, expecial-
ly the drug dealing kind, to do ours
and several other nations.
We're sure Castro used his
most virbrant wiles to persuade
Jackson to bring these criminals
home with him. There were just
enough genuine political prisoners
in the group to make them seem
legitimate.
Please, Jesse, stay home in the
future, or if you do take a trip
abroad, don't bring anyone back
with one.
As Mike Royko of the Chicago
Sun said, "Next time, bring us a
T-shirt!"


The Statue of Liberty is being
totally refurbished from donations
given by school children and they
are funding the project adequately.
Too, the Statue and its work-
ings, are in nearly every publica-
tion these days, following the work
in minute detail.
The fact that the work is even
being done is faith enough in the
patriotism of our people.
Wednesday night, when the
American flag display was lit up at
the end of the fireworks, spontan-
eous applause ran through the
large number. of people on the
green at the park beside the
Florida Bank Building. The sight of
the flag can still elicit a patriotic
reaction from our people.
It's a comforting'thought to us,
but it must be a disturbing thought
to our enemies.


Criminals

in a favorable situation for com-
mitting crimes.
In other words, it seems as if
the aim of the FBI these days is to
make more criminals, rather than
catch the ones we already have
running around loose.
We always thought we had a
sufficiency of criminals to go
around, but apparently not.
Here we have been going to
Sunday School for 45 years and
being taught that it was the devil
which tempts us.
Not so, it's the FBI and their
"sting" operations.


Living In
There's a lot to De said
about living in motels. There
are some good things about
motel living but, in my
opinion, most of the aspects
of the traveling life leave a
lot to be desired.
Most people think staying
in a motel is exciting because
they don't do it often. The
same people sometimes
think it's convenient because
they don't have to make up
the beds, wash the sink or
vacuum the floor. Most
women like it because they
don't have to cook. It is all
these things when one doesn't
do it on a regular basis.
To a person who travels on
a, regular basis, however, the
disadvantages far outweigh
these few insignificant ad-
vantages. I feel very -quali-
fied in this field because for
the past eight years I have
spent an average of two and
one-half nights a week in
various motels. For the past
few weeks the average has
been five nights a week.
Below are some of my
observations concerning the
negative aspects of motel
living:
1) Motels do not have a
sweet, soft-voiced woman to
come around in the morning
and whisper in your ear,
"Honey, it's time to get up.
Your breakfast is ready."
2) No two motel rooms are
arranged exactly alike. I can
never get up in the middle of
the night and go to the
bathroom without turning on
the lights like I do at home. I
treid it one night and found
myself at the edge of the
pool- as a man and his wife
quietly watched from the
other side.
3) Motels do not 'have a
dining room that one can
have breakfast in his robe.
You must get up, shave,
shower and get dressed..be-
fore you can even have a.cup
of coffee. If you order coffee
from room service it is
usually cold before it gets to
your room.
4) Motels do not wash and
iron clothes and hang them
up for you. You must send
them out and, more often
than not, they do not get back
when you need them. I
5) There is no one at motels
k


Motels


to talk to when you wake up
in the middle of the night and
have a headache. If you call
the desk clerk and talk to her
she will call the police to you.
6) There are very few
people at motels that will tell
you that you are about to go
on a business call with your
fly unzipped. Now, when
people smile at me at motels,
I always check my fly.
People at motels get mad
when you come in late at
night and try to get into the


No One Missed Me


By Kesley Colbert
You know, my feelings
have been hurt somewhat
this past week I didn't
write this little (very little)
column last week and no one


rushed up to me to see if I
was all right. One guy did
mention that he didn't see
my article and I thought he
was about to tell me how
much he missed it but in-
stead he said, "Thanks for


the break." Funny thing is -
everything went along about
normal in the world. I mean,
I thought someone some-
where would call for a mo-
ment of silence or maybe
they'd call a cease fire in one


wrong room. This is some-
times easy to do. All the
doors look alike to me except
for the numbers, and some-
times I forget to look at them.
8) Motels don't furnish kids
to come in and wake you up
in the middle of the night and
say, "Daddy, I had a bad
dream."
9)Motels don't have some-
one to come around and turn
off the TV when you go to
sleet and leave it on.


of those wars in the Middle
East for an hour or two out of

But listen, here's the part
that really makes me feel
bad, not only did everything
just roll right along without
my article but I kinda feel
that things went even better
than usual. Weather has


10) Finally, and most im-
portant, motels usually don't
furnish refrigerators. And,
they certainly don't stock
them with ham and cheese
and milk for late-night
snacks. I have never found a
piece of pie in my motel room
late at night. One night I
almost starved to death.
Motel living has its advan-
tages, but on a regular basis I
will take home living any-
time!

A Wednesday Off Is Almost A Phenomenon for Us


Here at The Star


THE BEST THING about the July
Fourth holiday was that we took off all
day on a Wednesday here at The Star.
That's an unusual happening. One
could almost count the number of
Wednesday we haven't worked on the
fingers of one hand; and that's over
the past 30 years. We are not known by
our Wednesdays off here at The Star.
They're almost as rare as an
:appearance of Haley's Comet.
: Bing off on a Wednesday is a
different experience from being off on
:a Saturday or any other day of the
:week. We can usually work around
any other day of the week and sneak in
a day off now and then. Having a free
: Wednesday is almost like having
:another clean pair of underwear left
-in your dresser drawer when you just
.changed. What can you do with it?
One thing I did with my Wednes-
day off was to make a point of
sitting down in my recliner, rear back
- and take about a 15 minute nap about

Now, if I had been doing my usual
tasks on Wednesday and the rain
came, I'd just get wet. My usual
Wednesday tasks can't be stopped
until they are through, rain or shine.
HAVING THE DAY off wasn't all
that big a thing on July Fourth.
Having a Wednesday off is an


adventure which comes along only a
few times in a lifetime for a weekly
newspaper publisher. A Wednesday
off is a morsel to be savoured and
relished and enjoyed to the last
moment.
The only problem with having a
Wednesday off is that such a condition
causes two Mondays to be in the same
week. If any day causes us more
irritation than Wednesday, it has to be
Monday. Coming back to work after a
day off in the middle of the week,
makes that second start during the
week seem just like Monday.
Monday are the subject of
another column and I won't get into
that one here.
To me, Wednesdays are neces-
sary to us here at The Star, making a
living. Monday are just a nuisance'. .

still don't know what the date is,
except that it is sometime during the

Old Mike is even getting some

old Mike is raking in the greenbacks

COMMIT FUNDS
About six weeks ago, the Commission
committed themselves for $15,000 to match
a Wewahitchka contribution to replace a
deteriorating street in the north Gulf city.
Tuesday, Max Kilbourn, a Wewahitchka
commissioner, came before the Board
Tuesday asking for an additional $5,000 to do
needed drainage on the street and re-pave
the approaches to the Dead Lakes bridge.
After considerable conversation in

Surf Can Be Mean for

* Novices In Swimming


Dear Sir:
Your editorial in the July
5th issue recalled to mind an
incident which happened to
some kinfolk of ours whilst
visiting the State Park years
ago.
There were three young
girls, one teenage boy and
two adults all splashing
around in the water about
twenty feet from the shore-
four members of the family
were sitting on the beach,
and a lifeguard was talking
to some other teachers and
trying to help them untie a
piece of rope. -
We all heard the shouts and


yelling of the swimmers and
thought they were playing in
the water having fun. Instead
they were calling.for help as
the undertow Was very bad
that day, and they were
almost dragged under by the
force of the current. Luckily.
they finally reached the
shore safely.
All these people are strong
swimmers as they have a
beach home at Myrtle Beach,
and enjoy, the surf therg
during the summer'months-
so they were. not. novides
when it comes to ocean
swimming.- However, the*
beach at the pqrk -can' be,
hazardous for swimmers-
especially those from- out of -
town- so may I suggest that
signs be posted in the parking
lots and-or areas before one
gets to the'swimming area
warning those going into the
water to not wade out too far
because of the possible heavy
undertow. Holidayers "pay
no mind" to red flags, etc.,
unless they' are made aware
of what.they mean' by the
park officials. '
Sincerely,
(Mrs.) Marjorie Parker


which the Board tried to get Kilbourn to
send invoices to the County, the Board
agreed to turn the money loose on the
stipulation their road 'superintendent ap-
prove of its expenditure.
Kilbourn said he was reluctant to act as
the middleman to make obligations he
wasn't absolutely sure the County would
honor.
Kilbourn summed up his request by
saying, "Either let us give you our money
and you assume the project or you give us
your money and let us do it"..
The Board finally agreed to let
Wewahitchka handle the project.
CLEAN UP BEACHES
Commissioner Billy Branch advised the
Board of an accumulation of seaweed on the
beaches and asked the Board to give a


number one priority to cleaning up the
beaches and hauling off the weed.
"I know our road department and
Mosquito Control men are busy with other
projects, but I feel this is a needed project
and we should pull off other projects to get
the beaches cleaned up".
Branch suggested the two departments
coordinate their efforts in getting the task
accord wished as soon as possible.
Branch also suggested some system be
worked out for placing trash containers on
the beach and getting them emptied
periodically. Branch said he would work out
a system for emptying the containers with
the present land-fill personnel.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business matters, the Commis-
sion:


-Agreed to give quit claim deeds to
adjoining property owners on several
alleyways which have closed and abandoned
by the County recently.
-Approved the writing of a letter
expressing the county had no opposition to
the placing of Dr. William Seibert. in the
office of Medical Examiner on a permanent
basis. Dr. Seibert has been serving as
interim since the resignation of Dr. Joseph
Sapala.
-With the rejection of a government
grant to place a public water supply to the
Williamsburg Subdivision, the county will
make an official request and search to see
what federal funds the county is eligible for.
-Approved sending out bids for a new
tractor with a side-arm mower attached.

Like I said, it was a pretty
good week and I found out
that the world doesn't wait
breathlessly each week for
this article. As a matter of
fact if things don't go well
this week don't look for
me to do any more writing.
Now I've tried to make it
pretty clear that no one ask-
ed why I wasn't here last
week but I thought I'd tell
you anyway I was playing
in a golf tournament. First
tournament I've played in in
years. Fifty-four hole tourn-
ament. It was big doings and
I worked hard getting ready
for it. I thought I played pret-
ty good; well, I missed a putt
or two, and I didn't hit the
ball well off the tee, and my
fairway woods were.
atrocious, and my short iron
game wasn't at its best, but
other than that I thought I
did O.K. I only swung and
missed a couple of times and
I didn't hit nobody. with any
of my wild shots so that, I
think, is doing-O.K. You see I
don't know much about golf.
But, heck, I came in third
place in the tournament. _
It was a family tourna-
ment and my younger
brother won it, but he didn't
play fair. He hit the ball too
far, and it always went right
down the fairway where he
was aiming. I don't believe
he got off into the trees dur-
ing the whole tournament.
Me, I was out in the woods so
much that .1 got on aj first


name basis with a couple of
squirrels. My older brother
came in second and I could
have beat him except for his
luck. He's about the luckiest
guy I ever saw. You take his
putting for instance every-
time he putted, the ball roll-
ed right into the hole. Me and
ole Dave, and L.C. are going
to hold this tournament
again next year and I'm go-
ing to be ready for them. I'm
carrying a chain saw with
me. We might even find
another person' who would
like to play with us so we'd
have a foursome.
Let's have another good
week.
Respectfully,

"The World of Charles

Francis Asbury

2:00 P.M.
Francis Asbury, during his ministry, travell-
ed over 275,000 miles. He crossed The
Alleghenies 62 times. When some com-
plained he would wreck his health he
would answer, "Live or Die, I Must Ride."
In his later days his health was so poor he
could not walk or sit on a horse, so he rode
by carriage. Reaching a church he would be
carried in by two strong men and placed
gingerly on a table. Sitting there he would
preach, for he believed that if the Gospel
had been important when he was well it
was no less important now that he was ill.

vacancies on the force now and consider at least one other
man in the new budget which will begin in October.
The force is presently authorized eight men, but two

have three men on duty at most all times and also provide
manpower to provide foot patrol services at night in the

BUYING SUNGLASSES
With summer here, the
season for buying sunglasses
has reached its peak for both
prescription and non-pres-
cription wearers.
I The inexpensive sunglass-
es that may be purchased in
drugstores or department
stores often just look like
good sunglasses, but provide
little or no protection from
the sun's harmful ultraviolet
rays. They may even harm
your eyes.
You can't tell by looking at
a pair of sunglasses whether
or not they will filter out the
harmful rays of the sun.
There is no federal regula-
tion that requires sunglass
manufacturers to label their
ready-to-wear glasses. Mold-
ed lenses, though they look
good, may not only be use-

Health Department;

partment.


less as sunglasses but may
also distort vision. Only
polished and ground lenses
with a particular chemical in
them have the ability to ab-
sorb and filter out ultraviolet
and infra-red rays.
A great danger of wearing
ineffective sunglasses is
that, with the glare cut
down, the wearer is not
aware that eyes may be
overexposed to the sun.
When eyes are exposed to
prolonged, extreme light,
burning and scarring of the
cornea and retina can occur.
The only way to be sure
that you are getting an effec-
tive pair of sunglasses is to
purchase them from reliable
professionals who can
answer your questions about
the effectiveness of the
lenses.

A Slip of

The Pen
A misunderstanding in the
order of the school buses
resulted in an error in last
week's story concerning the
school bus accident involving
three Gulf County school
buses and a pick-up truck in
Wakulla County recently.
The article listed Linda
Purswell as driving the rear
bus in the line, which was
struck by the pick-up truck.
A misunderstanding of se-
mantics caused The Star to
list Purswell as the driver of
the rear bus, when, in
actuality, she was driving the
lead bus. She was driving the
first bus in the line rather
than the first bus to be hit.
Versa McCloud was driv-
ing the bus which was hit by
the truck. McCloud's bus was
knocked into a bus driven by
Christine Taylor, which in
turn, was pushed into the
rear of Pursewell's vehicle.

ation, becoming familiar
with acceptable hurricane-
resistant construction.
This kind of construction
takes into account destruc-
tive forces such as flooding.
More than 70 percent of all
hurricane damage is done by
flooding. Builders also have
another worry, high speed
winds. Hurricane Camille
struck the Mississippi coast-
line in August 1969, packing
winds of 172 mph. One year
later, Celia ploughed into the
Texas coast with peak gusts
of over 180 mph. It is appa-
rent that high wind speeds
are relatively common along
our coast and that no area is
invulnerable to them.
Our present inability to pre-
dict such' disastrous events
with certainty makes it im-
portant to be conservative
whep building in a hazardous
zone such as the coast. Engi-
neering experts say,
however, that any type of
construction material can be
used if properly designed
and built in accordance with
good engineering practices.

Regulations of the Na-
tional Flood Insurance Pro-
gram provide guidance to
protect against flooding. In
addition, most counties with
sand beaches, today, have
officially established a
Coastal Construction Control
line that designates the area
along, the beach beyond
which new construction is
not permitted without a var-
iance granted by the state:
In other areas of the state,
however, existing regula-
tions are inadequate in
regard to construction. It is
in these areas that it is even
more important for the new
homebuilder to be aware of
good construction practices.
Even in areas where regula-
tions exist, the new home-
owner may want to be more
conservative in his building
approach. And those who
have already built under
previously inadequate or
non-existent regulations
may wish to make their
homes more hurricane-resis-
tant by -modifying the ex-

What appeared to be an
automobile accident turned
into Aggravated Battery with
a Vehicle, Monday afternoon
of last week
Sheriff's Deputy Joe John-
son responded to an accident
on Long Avenue extension,
south of Port St. Joe High
School, involving a 1980 Jeep
driven by George S. Jones,
age 21, of Avenue D in Port
St. Joe. When Deputy John-
son arrived he observed the
victim, Ronald L. Jenkins,
age 23, of Avenue B in Port
St. Joe, lying in the ditch with
the Jeep on top of him. A
wrecker was called and the
vehicle removed, and the
victim was taken to a Pana-
ma City hospital where he
was admitted.
The Florida Highway Pa-
trol investigated.
The victim's another later
contacted Deputy Johnson
and advised him that the
incident was not an accident.

Accident Over Holiday


The car and pickup truck shown in the photograph above
were one of two accidents reported in Port St. Joe over the
long Fourth of July holidays. The two vehicles were involved
in a collision on Woodward Avenue near its intersection with
Ninth Street. According to the Police report, Teresa Dean
Smith was backing her car out of a drive, when it was struck
by the pick-up truck, driven by Charles Wayne Cloud, who


was driving south on Woodward Avenue. Also during the
holidays, a car driven by James P. McCall struck a bicycle,
being ridden by Lorrie Thompson, 310 16th Street, at the in-
tersection of U.S. 98 and Seventh Street. Police reports show
that McCall made a right turn from Seventh Street onto
Highway 98 and collided with the bicycle.

Artificial reefs are recog-

attracting a variety of. ma-

tiny organisms such as coral
and sponges to large ocean-
type fishes, Smith said. The
best artificial reefs are built
from such dense material as
concrete rubble and large
metal objects such as ships,
he said. A "whole science"
has developed around the
construction of artificial
reefs, from the selection and
preparation of materials to
the choosing of reef sites, he

form Ann Kinard, field re-

said recently.
Medical insurance is the
part of Medicare that helps
pay for doctor bills, outpati-
ent hospital services, and
other items and services not
covered by hospital insur-
ance.
To receive payment under
medical insurance,; a person
generally submits a request
for payment form and the
doctor or other supplier
.pro0Vid5s an itemized bill Jto
snpd with the form.
The trouble is that often the
bill does not provide enough
information about the ser-
vices provided and, there-
fore, a decision cannot be
made as to whether they are
covered. As a result, the
patient must be contacted for
more information and pay-
ment is delayed.
To prevent this delay, the
person should be sure that
each bill shows:
A description of each ser-
vice provided; The date the
service was provided; The
place the service was pro-
vided; The charge for each
service provided; The doctor

Mosquitoes Outdoor Enemies


Bites of This Insect Familiar from Tropics to Arctic


BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
If it itches, and the wea-
ther's warm, it's probably
due to some of the outsdoors-
man's greatest enemies:
Mosquitoes and other biting
insects.
The next time you've care-
fully chosen the perfect time
for a good time outdoors,
carefully packed the appro-
priate gear, and carefully
applied a quality insect re-
pellent, it might be time to
consider some facts about
these pests. It makes sense to
know your enemies.
Mosquitoes are by far the
most common outdoor pests
that annoy humans. With
over 150 different species to
choose from in the United
States, chances are that few
of us have avoided an unplea-
sant meeting with at least
one. Knowing more about
them may help us avoid
them.
Contrary to what we've
heard for years, mosquitoes
don't really bite, but pene-
trate their victims with a
hollow, flexible snout com-
posed of six parts. Four parts
cut your skin so the mosquito
can get to your blood. With
the other two, the mosquito
gorges on her meal, and spits
saliva into the wound to thin
your blood and keep it easy to
draw. Mosquito saliva, not
the mosquito stab, irritates
your skin and causes that
familiar itch, redness and
swelling.
Though their eyes are
large in proportion to their
bodies, mosquitoes have very
poor vision. Until. they get
within a few inches of an
object, they can only make
out movement. They rely on
their antennae, located near'
the center of their heads
between their eyes, to smell
and hear. It's mainly these
senses that lead them to you.
Mosquitoes fly into the wind
so they can sense a potential
dinner. Attracted to warmth,
moisture and carbon dioxide,
the mosquito's potential ani-
mal or human victim exudes
a "host beam'" ,of,"these
substandgs: When 'the tmos-
quito, following a random
flight into the wind encoun-
ters such a beam, it cannot
immediately determine the
source. So it keeps flying
straight until it leaves the
beam, then turns back into it.
Zigzagging back and forth,
into and out of the narrowing
beam, the mosquito homes in
within a few inches of its
victim. Then its senses of
sight and smell apparently
can determine whether or not
the creature would be a good
meal.
Only female mosquitoes
attack. The blood they suck,
and the protein it provides, is
needed to nourish their eggs.
Male mosquitoes are vege-
tarian- feeding off the nec-
tar of flowers. Although a
female mosquito needs a
male mosquito only once to
impregnate her, she needs
blood 40 to 50 times from her
victims to lay all her eggs,
about 100 after each meal.
Mosquito eggs must be
thoroughly soaked before
they can hatch, but some
types can survive droughts
years longer. After hatching,
the mosquito goes through
three stages: larvae, pupa
and adult.
Wherever they land, mos-
quitoes are also very adapt-
able. They can survive fre-
ezing temperature and 100-
degree heat. In fact, although
swampy or coastal states-
like New Jersey, California
and Florida have large mos-

quito populations, Alaska is
heavily infested also.
Mosquitoes are attracted
to warm, moist skin, certain
chemicals in our sweat, and
the carbon dioxide of exhaled


breath. When their sensors
pick up these signals of a
potential target, mosquitoes
fly closer for a better judg-
ment. Repellents don't kill
mosquitoes, nor do they drive
mosquitoes away. Repellents
simply jam their sensors so
that they aren't able to tell
whether or not you're a good
meal.
There are also some pre-
cautions you should take to
avoid bugs when planning.to
enjoy the outdoors.
It takes about two weeks
for adult mosquitoes to de-
velop from,eggs which must
be laid in water. Immediate-
ly after a rain eggs may
begin to hatch in standing
water, but not many will be


old enough to bite. About two
weeks after a rain, the area
will be heavily infested with
adult mosquitoes, and will be
a pretty unpleasant place to
be.
Other biting flies have
similar habits, so when you
set up camp, or start barbe-
cuing, avoid standing water
where eggs are likely to be:
lakes, large puddles, old
tires, and containers of all
kinds. Damp holes in trees,
damp grass clippings, or
seaweed are good breeding
areas. Most flies, once they
hatch, usually don't travel
far from their hatching
ground.
If you have a choice, set up
your campsite or picnic in a
breezy spot. Mosquitoes and


Reefs' Interest Building


A membership drive is now
under way by organizers of a
group of Big Bend fishing and
diving enthusiasts devoted to
developing a better artificial
reef system in Apalachee
Bay.
The Organization for Arti-
ficial Reefs, founded last
year, is a non-profit Talla-
hassee-based civic group
that supports local and state
efforts to improve recrea-
tional fishing and diving
opportunities in Apalachee
Bay through the develop-
ment of an expanded and
improved system of artificial
reefs, according to OAR


coordinator George M.
Smith.
Smith said the OAR mem-
bership drive is being launch-
ed concurrently with a two-
year OAR survey project
designed to give local gov-
ernment officials and marine
scientists information about
the biological and economic
impact of Apalachee Bay's
two existing artificial reefs.
An annual OAR member-
ship costs $10 and includes a

clude public seminars on a

better artificial reefs
throughout the Big Bend
coast," he said. -
