Millville Wants Cable TV Service


The 37 residents of Millville
Subdivision would like to
have cable television service,
according to testimony given
by Paul Gant, a resident of
the area, before the City
Commission Tuesday night.
Gant and Shirley Jenkins
questioned Gulf Cable TV
owner, Robert Newman, at
the meeting, as to why they


.4. r I_ I 1 TT"


couldn't get the service and
asked the City Commission if
Newman's franchise didn't
require him to put the service
in.
Newman answered the
question as to why tlie
service wasn't available by
saying, "I can give you pa
short answer, 'money'. The
longer answer explains why


the project has been unfeas-
able to this point." Newman
expressed a willingness,
however, to take another look
at the project and see if the
expansion would pay for
itself.
Newman pointed out there
were only a few homes in the
area at his last survey and a
requirement that all utilities


be placed underground in the
subdivision, made it prohibi-
tively expensive for his firm
to serve Millville.
Newman said the expense
would be greater since hand
trenching would be neces-
sary, now, so as not to disturb
present utilities already in
place.
The cable operator also
pointed out several permits
would be necessary before an
installation could be made
which would take some time
and expense.
Jenkins then asked how the
company could serve Ward
' idge and not' Milhville, since


both areas were about the
same size.
Newman said his firm is
located in Ward Ridge and
the installation was a part of
his continued permission to
operate in the area. "Too,
Ward Ridge utilities are
served by poles and I could
get permission to attach to
the poles. It was a relatively
inexpensive installation".
Newman stated again he
would take another look at
the Millville area to see if an
installation there was now
feasible. "I'll have an answer
within about a month", he,
told Gant and Jenkins.


In other business items, thO
Commission:
-Agreed to hire former
city clerk Charles Brock to
serve temporarily in the
place of Alden Farris who
has taken a leave of absence
to seek election to public
office.
-Agreed to send three
employees from the Waste-
water Treatment Plant to
Gainesville to attend a short
course being held there.
-Heard a report from
Bob Simon that the $1 million
dredging operation at the
plant settling pond. is now
complete.


Department of Transportation Secre-
tary, Paul N. Pappas responded to a
resolution filed with DOT this week in a
letter to the. Commission, explaining the
state agency's position in coming up with
bridge priorities in Gulf County.
It seems, according to Pappas' letter,
the DOT has not abandoned plans to build an
new high-rise bridge across the Intracoastal
Canal at Highland View. According to
Pappas, the DOT has plans to construct the
bridge in fiscal 1988-89 unless the priorities
are changed in the meantime.
The City of Port St. Joe and the Gulf
County Commission both petitioned the DOT
to abandon plans for a high-rise bridge at
White City and build one, instead, at
Highland View, on Highway 98, when it was
learned DOT had plans for a bridge at White
City. Plans of DOT revealed earlier this
year, pointed out that a new high-rise span
would be placed at Overstreet, with
construction to start possibly in the current
fiscal year. A similar bridge was scheduled
for White City, to begin construction in the
following fiscal year.


No indication was given for plans to
place a new bridge at Highland View until
Pappas' letter was received this week.
Pappas said plans for a bridge at Highland
View had been delayed until the Port St. Joe
Port Authority commits itself to a port
concept and sets the specifications for the
new bridge.
Contacting George Tapper, chairman of
the Port Authority, it was learned the Coast
Guard sets the specifications for such
bridges as the one necessary for the
Highland View location and the Coast Guard
has been working on the specifications for a
period of time. Tapper said port plans have
been filed with the Coast Guard and the Port
Authority-and DOT-are now waiting for
their reply in the matter.
Pappas' letter indicated that if port
questions are settled before the White City
project begins, "we can consider moving the
Highland View project to an earlier letting
date".
Pappas said the three planned bridge
projects for Gulf County will cost in the
neighborhood of $25,000,000.


Two local industries signed three
year agreements with their operating
unions during the past week, with both
firms agreeing to modest wage and
fringe benefit increases in labor negotia-
tions.
St. Joe Container Division workers,
members of the United Paperworkers,
Local 379, agreed on Thursday, after a
short period of negotiation to accept a
three year agreement from the company.
The Container Division contract
became effective July 15.
An increase in wages and fringe
benefits offered by the company, was
agreed to by the Union after only a few
days of negotiations.


A last minute vote of approval on a
new three year contract headed off a
threatened strike at Basic, Inc., last
Wednesday night.
Acceptance of the contract by the
United Steel Workers of America, Local
14963, agreed to a new work agreement
which became effective Thursday, July
12 and runs until July 11, 1987.
Workers at the local seawater
magnesia plant, received an increase in
compensation, with the largest por-
tion of the increase coming in fringe
benefits, such as increases in health
insurance and retirement benefits. ;
In addition, workers will receive an
across the board increase in wages for
the second two years in the contract.

Park Service


Thins Trees

The State Park Service has just completed
a tree-thinning operation at Constitution State
Park at the south edge of the City limits, last
week.
The park, which maintains a museum of
interesting collections from old St. Joseph and
the road bed from the old St. Joseph and Lake
Wimico Railroad, had several trees cut by pulp
wooders, thinning the stand of pines in the
park.
Rangers from the Park Service said the
thinning operation is designed to make the park
easier to maintain, allow the remaining trees to
grow better and make the entire area look
better.
In the photo at right, workmen stack the
pulpwood from the felled trees in preparation ,
to loading it on a truck.

Growth Is Coming


to Gulf

There are several indications
that growth is slipping up on us
here in Gulf County. We don't have
to have people camping out in our
backyards or be faced with fighting
for a place to sit down, to see the
facts which are becoming as plain
as the nose on our face; which has
been described as being pretty
plain, at times.
There were three indications in
last week's paper, which are
indisputable indications that
growth is going on all around us,
whether we see it or not. These
three indicators can't be argued
with as being authentic evidence.
First, there was the release
from Supervisor of Elections, Cora
Sue Robinson, that the voter
registration is climbing in Gulf
County..
Even after a period of purging
the lists, in which people who have
moved away, or died, or haven't
voted for the past two or three
elections, have been taken from the
rolls. Still, after this purging, Mrs.
Robinson says the voter rolls in
Gulf County are now larger than
ever before. There are now more
people registered on the voting
rolls-all live, active, present
people-than ever before in the
County's history.
This is indisputable fact that


County

we are growing in numbers of
people.
Property values are growing,
as the result of improvements
being made to property which was
already there, according t9 Pro-
perty Appraiser, Joyce Williams.
What'does this mean? It means
that we are in a year of almost
stable valuations, so far as comply-
ing with the state's "just value"
law, so, any increase in values has
to come from the fact that people
are building homes or business
buildings on property they already
own. Increasing property values
show a growth in construction
which also reflects a growth in
numbers of people.
Another sure sign of growth.
The third sign of growth in last
week's paper was the announce-
ment that the Post Office was
extending mail service in the Cape
San Blas area. We don't know the
criteria for extending such mail
service, but we are aware that the
number of residents per mile must
reach a certain number before the
Post Office will offer mail service.
Mail service being provided at
Cape San Blas, then, tells us that
the area has reached this satur-
ation point. The area is growing.
Just thought you might like to
know.


The


Telephone Call


For Ltiout six months I
thought my son had a night
brace he wore on his mouth. I
walked in the other morning
and found out it was a
telephone receiver. Have you
ever seen anyone sleep and
talk on the phone? My son
can do it! I've often wonder-
ed why our phone never
rang- now I know.
A telephone was a sacred


instrument when I was
young. That was when there
were party-lines and you had
to call the operator to get
, long distance. It was also the
Time when children were not
allowed to use the phone for
any extended length of time.
SThree to five minutes was
'.about it for a teenage conver-
sation in those days. Teen-
agers today have their own


phones, answering service
and T.V. sets in case the
conversation gets boring.
Ain't that something, older
folks?


I walked into my son's
room one night and he was,


as usual, talking on the
phone. He was obviously
talking to a girl because he
was all smiles and "honey-
lipped" but suddenly hushed


when I entered the room. He
looked so confident and re-


laxed, and seemed to be
enjoying himself so much,
that it reminded me of the
horror I experienced the first
time I called a girl on the
phone. I was neither confi-
dent or relaxed, and I guess
that's why I hate cocky,
confident kids today.
The first time I called a girl
from my house it took me
five days. There was nothing
wrong with the phone, but
there was a lot wrong with
the nerve that connected my
brain with my tongue. I
couldn't get them both going
(Continued on Page 3)


They're Off and Running


In Florida


By the time this week's paper
is in print and you are reading it,
'the 1984 political race will officially
be open 'in Florida, and the
candidates will be rushing for the
goal of election, harder than they
have already been in the past few
weeks.
Elections and the coming of
qualification day always remind
us of a painting we saw once of the
opening of the Territory of Okla-
homa by the federal government.
_ People wanting the newly opened
land. were in a stampede toward
their goal by every means imagine-
able. They were on horses, wagons,
bicycles, on foot, all rushing
toward an unclaimed spot of land
on which to place their mark.
Monday, qualification time op-
ened and the candidates were off
*and running in whatever way they
could to reach the goal of being
approved by the people as the
person who should fill some certain
position in the county.


The experienced runners knew
what' to do and where to stand to
begin their races, because they had
been there before. 'Those who were
novices at politicking, sort of
stumbled around and fumbled the
ball a little in deciding just what
the first step for them should be.
However the politicians started
-fast or slow-by Friday, noon,
they will all be stretched out,
seeking success in their particular
endeavors. The field will be firmed
and the doors slammed shut on the
hopefuls who still couldn't make up
their mind, even at the last
moment. Friday at noon, will make
up their mind for them.
So, get ready for the onslaught
of handshakes, glad handing, back-
slapping, baby kissing, greetings
from people who haven't spoken to
you in years. You are fair game for
them. You have from now until
November to put up with this
semi-annual exercise.


When A Coke Was A Coke & A Nickel


The Rea

BY KESLEY COLBERT
Do you remember when a
Coke-Cola was a real treat?
They were about as scarce as
hens teeth around our house
when I was a'growing up. A
Coke cost a nickel in those
days, and was considered a
luxury that we couldn't of-
ten afford; besides' old "Bet-
sy" provided all the milk that


l Thing
we could drink and it was
"better for you son". And it
didn't cost nothing except on
those extra cold mornings
when you were in a hurry to
get out of the barn and back
to the house, and "Betsy"
wasn't in an obliging mood.
But every once in a while, my
mom would bring each of us
a Coke back from the store.
Boy howdy, let me tell you


something- we didn't gulp it
right down and go on about
our business. We had drink-
ing one of those things down
to an art. The secret was to
make it last. I'd put my Coke
in a special place in the
refrigerator so I wouldn't get


"my drink" mixed up with
my brothers. They'd do the
same; and then it was
anticipation time. Man, how
sweet it was going to be, and
so cold. Shoot, sometimes I'd
leave "mine" in there five or
six minutes before I decided
it was cold enough and I
couldn't wait any longer...
About my favorite way to
drink a Coke in those days (if
I didn't have any peanuts)
was to take an ice pick and
jab a small hole through the
cap. You take that cap off
and your drink would be gone
in two minutes- with only an
ice pick hole in the top you


could sip on that Coke for an
hour or so. They only came in
small bottles so you really
had to plan the way you
wanted to drink it. Like I said
the key was to make it last.
Sometimes we'd all save
our Cokes till Saturday night.
Hey, listen, have ya'll seen
those commercials where
they say "Man, it doesn't get
any better than this"? Well,
those people are wrong
'cause the guy that wrote
those things never pulled up
a chair just as close as he
could get it to that' old
stand-up Zenith radio in the
(Continued on Page 3)


What's Left
THE DEMOCRATS ARE meeti-
ing out in California this week, with
their national convention. Again, this
year, I didn't go. Nor, did I get an
invitation to go, which is just as well,
because, in all likelihood, I would
have had to return my regrets as to
why I wasn't going to be there.
I'm trying, first, to figure out how
they describe the frequency with
which the Democrats meet in their
annual convention.
If one meets daily, it's a daily
meeting, weekly is a weekly gather-
ing, *every other week is semi-month-
ly; once a year is annually; once
every two years is bi-annually, and so
forth.
But, what is every four years?.
Quadrennially?
Considering the other important
matters both the political parties take
up and consider at their periodic
conventions, I'm surprised they have-
n't had a convention to determine
what one would call a convention
which occurs every four years. It's as
worthy of discussion as some of the


for the Democrats to Decide At the Convention This Week?


other matters they consider at those(
conventions.
LIKE MANY OTHER things,
they don't make conventions like they


tion and something the nation was
waiting for.
Rep. Rayburn would bang and
bang on the podium with the new
hand-carved gavel carved from the


sive move on the part of Rep. Rayburn
and his mournful, sonorous "Or-dah!"
"Or-dah!" "Let's have order in the
hall and clear the aisles!" gave color
to the convention which nothing else


ETAOINSHRDLU

By: Wesley R. Ramsey


used to, anymore. I remember back
when old Representative Sam Ray-
burn, of Texas was chairman of the
Democratic national convention. He
would pick up that huge gavel, explain
who made it and where the tree came
from which furnished the wood for the
gavel and just who presented it to the
convention.
That was all important informa-


wood of a sycamore tree cut in
Reginald Farnsworthy's back yard.
He would pound and he would pound
and the people would keep on doing
what they were doing in the first
place. Had it not been for the loud
speaker system, nobody would have
known Rayburn was pounding on the
podium, as persistent as he was.
But the pounding was an impres-


L


But, with the passing of Rep.
Rayburn went the dignity and pomp of
the convention.

I REALLY DON'T know why they
are even having a convention this
year. Why not just call it off and use
the money to pay off Jimmy Carter's
still-remaining campaign debts which


resulted from the last campaign? Or,
better yet, put the money in the bank
to pay for some of the expenses Walter
Mondale is going to incur on his way to
getting whipped at the polls?
Mondale's getting whipped at the
polls isn't an original idea with me. I
read where a poll of all women doesn't
give Mondale but a 36 percent
approval-and that poll came along
after Mondale had approved of a lady
for his Vice-Presidential running-
mate.
But, back to the convention. Why
are they having one this year? Walter
Mondale says he is the "natural" be-
cause he has so many delegates
pledged to his campaign. Here he sits
with enough pledged delegates to
guarantee him the nomination and'he
has personally hand-picked Represen-
tative Geraldine Ferraro as his
running mate.
What's left for the convention to
decide?
One thing they can work on is a
statement made by Florida's Demo-


cratic Chairman, Charles Whitehead
of Panama City. Charley has said,
"Geraldine Ferraro was selected
because of her ability and competen-
cy, not because she is a woman".
Doesn't that sound like a state-
ment a former used car salesman
would make? That's about as believ-
able as the old time-worn sales pitch,
"This car was owned by a little old
maid school teacher who only drove it
to church on Sunday!"
I wonder how a man who used to
make his living with such phrases is
going to relate to a lady candidate for
vice-president?
Can't you hear it now: "Geraldine
won't hurt the office; she'll only use it
when the president is away!"
Another hard matter to explain is
going to be Walter Mondale himself,
trying to explain away having to stay
at the office, late, night after night,
after night.
It could get sticky.
First, Mondale has to get elected
and from this corner, that isn't going
to be all that easy to do.

The Real Thing


(Continued from Page 2)
living room on a Saturday
night listening to Little Jim-
my Dickens singing "Sleep-
ing at the Foot of the Bed"
LIVE over clear channel 650
WSM's world famous Grand
Ole Opry while sipping a
Coke out of the small bottle,
through a hole he'd jabbed in
the cap with an ice pick.
My dad always said that
old Zenith was so good it
would pick up the Grand Ole
Opry a week ahead of time. I
know it brought in WSM loud
and clear. I'd usually start on
my Coke about the time
Lester Flatt and Earl
Scruggs kicked off the Mar-
tha White sponsored portion
of the Grand Ole Opry around
8:00 p.m. Then I'd try to be
about half way through
sometime during the middle
of the Steven's Workclothes
show and that way I'd finish
at just about the end of the
Jefferson Island salt (pure
salt) part of the show at 9:30.
You don't see much Jefferson
Island salt these days. Well,
after E. T. or Hank or Faron
or whoever closed out the
Jefferson Island show at 9:30
it was time for bed (we got to
stay up late on Saturday
nights) and the trick was to
take your last sip just as the
9:30 show ended. Sounds
kinda silly doesn't it?- but
that's the way back in '55.
And then the Coke people
messed up. They came out
with the King-size bottle, cost
a dime. They also went up to
six cents on the regular size


bottle. Man, we were just
barely able to pay the nickel.
The drink machine across
the street from our church at
the Citgo station still would
give you a Coke for a nickel,
but they taped a box on the
front that you placed the
penny in when you got a
drink. Many a Sunday be-
tween Sunday School and
church I couldn't get a Coke
'cause all I had was a nickel
and nobody would lend me a
penny. But the price wasn't
the worst of it- the taste of
the King size bottle wasn't
the same as the small bottle.
Still isn't. Today we've got
Coke in cans, quarts, plastic
liters, etc. Not the same taste
as those old small bottle
Cokes. I don't even know
what a liter is but it sure
doesn't sound American to
me.
In protest I have started
drinking Dr. Pepper.
I went to a meeting a
couple of years ago in
Dothan, Alabama and the
Coke people had a booth
where you could have all the
Coke you wanted, anytime
you wanted it, free. They
were handing it out in small
cups with ice. Well, I got in
line and when I finally got up
to the booth I asked the guy if
he had a regular bottle and
an ice pick...you see, you've
got to be able to recognize the
real thing and then ask for it
by name.
Respectfully,
Kes

at the same time.
Her name was Marie Let-
terless and she was in the
seventh grade, as I was. I
had never spoken to her. As
the old saying goes, our eyes
had met, our lips not yet, or
something like that. Anyway,
I was desperately in love.
I decided the best way to
get to know Marie was to call
her on the phone. I would call
her and attempt to talk to her

and, if the conversation
became confusing or embar-
rassing, I could just hang up
and pretend the line went
dead. A tactful plan, but not
as easy as I planned.
"Wendell, where on earth
are you going so dressed up
this time, of night?" my
mother asked as I walked
toward the telephone room.
"To make a phone call," I
answered, somewhat embar-
rassed..
"Oh," was her understand-
ing reply. You see, I had put
on my very best clothes,
brushed my teeth and hair,
- and, shied mny shoes. I
needed all the confidence I
could muster.
I carefully dialed Marie's
number. It rang about three
times and a man answered.
"Her father!" I thought as I
slammed the receiver
down- almost scared me
half to death. My heart was
literally in my throat!
I sat there for about ten
minutes trying to build up my
courage to dial again, but
finally went to bed in despair.
This love thing was turning
out to be a lot more difficult
than I had anticipated. I had

however, Marie answered
the phone.
"Hello," said her sweet,
soft voice, just like I dream-

moved to answer but no
words came out.
"Hello," she repeated, this
time a little louder. "Hello,

more times before finally
hanging up.

IS GLAUCOMA
INHERITED?
Q. If a parent has glaucoma,
is it likely that a son or
daughter. would have it
too?
A. Glaucoma itself is not in-
* herited; however, the ten-
dency to develop the con-
dition is greater for those
patients with a family his-
tory of it. If someone in
your family has glau-
coma, be sure to tell your
optometrist when he is
taking your case history.
If glaucoma exists in your
family, your visual fields
and a tonometer test
(which measures the
pressure in your eyes)
should be a part of your
complete eye examina-
tion regardless of your
age. The health of the in-
side of your eyes will be
checked thoroughly in the
ophthalmoscopic part of
the examination.
Q. Can a young person deve-
lop glaucoma?
A. Glaucoma can be deve-
loped at any age, but it
does not often occur in pa-
tients under forty. In a
younger person, untreat-
ed glaucoma can cause
permanent damage to the
i eye, just as it does in the
older patient. Treatment
is the same at any age.
If you have any reason to
suspect that you are deve-
loping glaucoma, or have
fears about developing
the condition because of a
family history, call for a
complete eye examina-
tion.

d Pottery
ment on the peninsula has not
been authenticated, but
many articles have been
found through the years
which are definitely of Eng-
lish origin, and the society
will make every effort to
prove that such a settlement
did exist and to authenticate
the date.
Maurelle Cumbie, report-
ing on the old cemetery
project, said that much work
needs to be done within and
around the grounds, replac-
ing trees and shrubs, fertiliz-
ing, etc. She also reported
that people had been dump-
ing trash just outside the
fence behind these sacred
grounds. For many years
society members have work-
ed for the preservation and
beautification of the burial
place of our forefathers, and
it is always a shock to learn
that people would desecrate
such a place. This is an
appeal to the civic pride of
the people in and around Port
St. Joe to honor and respect
this hallowed area, and all
other such places- in the
county, the state, and the
nation.


Stern Wheeler In Port


The Florida Belle, a beauti-
ful, 150-passenger sternwheel
vessel, constructed in 1982 on
the pattern of a period i
sternwheeler, but with the
very latest, modern equip- ,',
ment and completely Coast
Guard ,approved, will work
on the Apalachicola, Chatta-.
hoochee and Flint Rivers in
the near future.
Captain Buck Smith, after
several reconnaissance trips
along the waterways, has
decided that, with sufficient "
local support from the vari-,:
ous communities in the ACF
valleys, there is a potential
use of the Florida Belle by'
serving numerous communi-
ties rather than a fixed port
of operation.
The Florida Belle will be in
Port St. Joe for charter July
22, 23 and 24. Passage will be
available to Apalachicola
with return bus connections.
Working with several tour
companies, Capt. Smith'
plans heritage cruises, which
would emphasize the rich
history of the rivers and the
communities that, in the
1800's, found the rivers their
vital transportation link with
the Gulf, both for passenger


travel and freight.
Capt. Smith is contacting
Chambers of Commerce and
other groups that have festi-
vals and other special events,
so as to make the Florida
Belle available. Capt. Smith
says that he wants to make
the Florida Belle available in


the entire region as an
attraction, and another re-
source to add to the already-
increasing tourism industry.
For further information
contact The Florida Belle,

Say You Saw It In The Star!


A BIG, Tomato!!!

It isn't often you see a tomato as large as this one, in
Gulf County or anywhere else. This specimen, weighing 1%5/8
pounds and measuring 5% inches in diameter, was brought
into The Star office last week by Mrs. Hazel Wyman of St.
Joe Beach. Mrs. Wyman said she grew the tomato in her
garden which is one block from the edge of the Gulf of
Mexico at the corner of Cortez and Americus Streets.

Pope Fendley, speaking for
the Port St. Joe congregation
of Jehovah's Witnesses, an-
nounced that the members of
the congregation have just
returned from their four-day
convention in Tallahassee.


Over 6500 delegates from
Florida, Georgia and Ala-
bama attended the conven-

Donnie Batson, 38, of We-
wahitchka passed away sud-
denly Friday in Wewahitch-
ka. He was a lifelong resident
of Wewahitchka, and was a
boat captain for oil explora-

of his death he was a
commercial fisherman. He
was a graduate of Wewahit-
chka High School, and at-
tended Gulf Coast Communi-
ty College for two years.
He is survived by his wife,
Sandra Batson of Wewahitch-
ka; one son, Keith Wayne
Batson of Wewahitchka; two
daughters, Amanda Caryn
and Stephanie Alana, both of

Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Batson of

Batson of Dalkeith and Bob-

Christian's conduct, toward
God, toward the family,
toward the congregation and
toward neighbors. There was
specific information for hus-
bands, wives and young
people designed to examine
the problems confronting so-
ciety today, and suggesting
concrete solutions to over-
come them. The Witnesses,
Fendley says, joyfully meet
at this type of convention
three times each year.
Weekly at their Kingdom
,Halls lectures can be heard.
The public is invited to attend'
these local meetings at the
Port St. Joe Kingdom Hallk.
three times each week.

took turns on the mound.
Blaine Adams provided the

poling a three run homer to-,

Ken Monette paced the
offense, going two for three
at the plate, driving in two
runs. Dale Evensen and

GCCC Aid

Quickly

Students seeking federal
financial aid to attend college
this fall should apply imme-
diately, according to Daniel
S. Smith, coordinator of
financial aid at Gulf Coast
Community College.
Smith said that because
there is a six-weeks proces-
sing period for the PeJl
Grant, students applying for
aid at registration may not
receive funding in time to
pay tuition and fees. He
added that students who have
.already established their eli-
gibility for funding through
that program should not
delay in bringing their pa-
pers for processing to the
Financial Aid Office.
Further information on fi-
nancial aid is available at
769-1551, ext. 224.

Watch Out for Poisonous Plants


BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director '
Summer is a great time to
enjoy things like hiking and'
camping. But before you go
tramping off into beckoning
woods, you should familiari-
ze yourself with some of the
more common poisonous
plants. A little preparation
could save your days of
uncomfortable after effects,
resulting from contact with
such noxious weeds.
Usually, we think of poi-
sonous, plants as species
found only in the woods. |
Actually, they're every-
where. I will describe three
common poisonous plants-
poison ivy, oak and sumac-
and tell you where you might
find them. My information
for this article was provided
by Extension Horticulturist 4
Dr. Robert J. Black.
Now is a good time to be
discussing poisonous plants,
because the sap of these leafy
enemies is most abundant
during the summer. And, it's
usually the sap which causes
the problems. Poisonous
plants can be divided into two

The House of Represen-
tatives completed action on the
budget and tax bills for the
coming fiscal year. Although I
had misgivings about the in-
creases in Medicare taxes and.
the provisions affecting the
ability of communities to issue
Industrial Development Bonds,
I voted for the measure because
it takes steps to reduce the
deficit by $60 billion over the
next three years and will
demonstrate to the American
people and the world that the
U.S. government is :'serious
about reducing ourdeficits and
will ultimately have a balanced
budget.
It should be noted that this
bill contains no new taxes for
the general public and, for the
most part, raises revenue by
closing tax loopholes. I am con-
vinced that the American public
wants Congress to reduce
government spending and
believe we have taken positive
action in that regard.

In other recent action, the
House of Representatives has
passed the Military Construc-
tion Appropriations Act for FY
1985. Included in this important
measure are funds totaling
$699,000 for construction of a
helicopter landing lane at Camp
Blanding in Clay County.
In past years, Camp Bland-
ing has not received the con-
sideration for funding which it
deserves. I was pleased to note
that the Committee gave
serious attention to my request
for these construction funds.
Further, the Committee
report which accompanied the
bill noted my request for con-
sideration of future funding for
construction projects at Camp
Blanding by stating: "The Com-
mittee has been made aware of
the need to move forward

sion, this matter was tabled
until the July meeting.
There being no further
business, the meeting ad-
journed to meet again on
July 10, 1984 at 5:30 PM.


groups: those which cause
skin irritation; and those
which cause internal dis-
tress, and in rare cases, even
death.
Many factors influence the
poisonous nature of a parti-
cular kind of plant. The
poison may be dispersed
throughout a plant, or it may
be localized in a specific
plant part such as the roots,
berries, or seeds. The

soil. Also, reactions vary
among people, depending on
their health, age, and sensi-
tivity to the poison.
Now I'll describe three of
the most common poisonous
plants, those I mentioned
earlier- poison ivy, poison
oak, and poison sumac:
Poison ivy may have a
variety of leaf shapes. But
one identifying feature re-
mains constant. The leaves
always come in threes, with
two of them directly opposite
each other. White, waxy
flowers may be found on
smaller branches. These
sometimes stay on the plant,
even after the leaves have
fallen. Poison ivy commonly
grows as a vine, climbing

Finally, as a part of the same
bill, Congress has voted to
establish a supercomputer
center and computational in-
stitute at Florida State Univer-
sity. I am proud that the Second
District will serve as home to
what is known as a fifth-
generation computer, capable
of solving complex problems
which are beyond the capabili-
ty of small computers. This
supercomputer will be one of
very few in the United States
and we expect it to be able to
tackle large-scale, real-world
problems. We, in the Second
District, will be in the forefront
of this relatively new dimension'
of computers and Florida will be
a resource for all of the
southeastern United States.

into trees, over fences, and
up the sides of walls. How-
ever, in open fields, poison
ivy may look like a shrub.
Poison oak usually has the
appearance of a lowgrowing
shrub. As the name implies,
the slender, upright branches
bear leaflets which resemble
oak leaves. Poison oak also
grows in trees, like poison
ivy. Usually, the undersides
of the leaves are lighter in
color, because they're cover-
ed with fine hairs. Poison
sumac grows as a woody
shrub, or small tree. It never
has the vinelike appearance
of many other poisonous
plants. Poison sumac is often
found near swamps, and


ranges from five or six feet to
as much as 25 feet in height.
The leaves are divided into
seven to thirteen leaflets that
grow in pairs. A single leaflet
is found at the end of each
stem. 'In the spring, the
leaves are bright orange and
velvety in texture. Later, in
the summer, the upper
leaves become dark green
and glossy, while the lower
leaves turn a paler green.
These are Florida's most
common poisonous plants.
But there are many more
that you 'should learn to
recognize and avoid. It is
especially important to keep,
you children away from such
dangerous species.
