Raffield Fisheries, after having its
headquarters and processing plant com-
pletely destroyed by fire in October of last
year, is beginning to once again assume the
shape of a going concern.
Re-building on the-spot of the former
buildings, on the banks of the Gulf County 1
Canal, the local seafood processing plant
and fish catching and sales operation which
has operations extending from the coast of
Mexico to the Florida Keys, is rising like a
Phoenix from the ashes of its former
destruction.

Both the Gulf County School Board and
the Gulf. County Commission nailed down
their millage rates this week, to be included
on the annual TRIM notices which will be
prepared early this month and sent out to
property owners. The mill levies are the
maximum which both governing bodies can
levy. The boards may levy less than the mill
rates they arrived at, but cannot go above
them without going through the whole
process again.
Initially, it appears as if Gulf County tax
payers will be saddled with a tax rate
increase of some 1.842 mills to finance the
county government and school operations
for the coming fiscal year. With a mill in
Gulf County worth approximately $330,000,
the additional levy will amount to $607,860 in
additional tax dollars.
There are two big reasons for the hefty
tax increase this coming year. The county is.
losing its federal revenue sharing money
which has been contributed by the Federal
Government every year for the past 10 years
or so. This source of revenue accounted for
some $168,000 in income last year.
The School Board has been told by the
State Education Department to build new
facilities for that portion of the Wewahitch-


ka Elementary School still meeting in the
old school site on Highway 71. The buildings
have been declared as "unsuitable" for
school purposes and have declared it would
cost more to renovate the buildings to state
specifications than to build new buildings.
Even though there are good reasons for
the increase in taxes, the board members of
both governmental bodies know they face a
formidable task of persuading the tax
payers of the county to accept the hefty
increase without grumbling.
GULF COUNTY .
Finishing up its tentative budget Tues-
day night in a work-shop session, the
Commission agreed to verify a tentative
millage rate of 5.739 to send to Property
Appraiser Kesley Colbert for preparation of:
the TRIM notices.
Like a child walking by a cemetery in
the dark whistling to show he is not afraid,
one of the Commissioners remarked, after
their work was done for the night, "I read,
recently where Gulf County has one of the
best and lowest tax rates in the state".
"We're one of the few in the Panhandle with'
a mill rate lower than 10", another

Paper Co., Unions,

Haven't Signed Yet
Negotiations between St. Joe Paper Company and
its operating unions, still have failed to result in a new
working contract pact this week.
The present working contract expired Sunday, July
28, leaving the employees of the firm without a working
contract, officially.
Negotiations of a couple of weeks resulted in a'
contract being presented to the unions last week, which
were voted on-and turned down-Friday by the three
operating unions.
Unions involved in the negotiations are the
Papermakers, Electrical Workers and Machinists
unions.
No future bargaining sessions had been scheduled at
press time Wednesday.
The primary points of disagreement seem to be in
medical insurance payments made by the company for
its employees, retirement funding and holiday language.


James T. McNeill of Indian Pass, met for its
initial session Thursday of last week to hear
their goals outlined by Charles Blume and
Barbara Hoagland of the Apalachee Plan-
ning Council, who explained the new
requirements as they were approved by the
recent session of the Florida Legislature.
DEADLINE SET
Gulf County, of course, already had a
"land use plan" which was hastily prepared
some 15 years ago, to tell the state


government at the time that Gulf County
had a plan. The work was never adopted by
the County Commission, nor 'put on the
official county list of rules and regulations .
Now, some serious consideration must be
given to preparing an effective plan which
will meet the inspection of state government
by December of 1987.
"If we don't have an acceptable plan by
that time, the state threatens to withhold all
funds which would normally. come to the


Testing Safety Devi(


When faced with the growing
problem of overheight trucks causing
damage to area bridges, the Florida
Department of Transportation (DOT)
borrowed some technology from the
burglar alarm industry to blow the
whistle on the illegal carriers.
"We came up with an advance
warning system utilizing the infra-red
beams used in burglar alarms", said
G. D. McKechnie, communications
supervisor for DOT's Third District.
"The beam is set at 14 feet high. If a
truck breaks the beam, it sets off a
series of flashing lights and a siren",
said McKechnie.
DOT is testing the device
on the White City bridge on
State Road 71, and the early
returns are favorable. "We've
had a good number of trucks


stopped by the warning device,
pull over and adjust their load
or unload as needed," said
W. A. Alford, who heads up
DOT's inspection program.
The early warning device can be
installed for less'than $2,000. The
devices are planned for the Apalachi-
cola River bridge on State Road 20
between Blountstown and Bristol and
the West Bay bridge on State Road 79
in Bay County.
The Apalachicola River bridge on
State Road 20 was closed for several
months earlier this year when an
overheight logging truck caused ex-
tensive damage.
"It's not unusual for one of our
bridges to get banged around a
number of times during one day,"
Alford said.


county and then write a plan for us which
would suit their requirements", Manuel
said. "We don't have the option of merely
hammering out a document and calling it
our Land Use Plan", he went on.
Mrs. McNeill said Thursday's meeting
was the second of the young Planning
Commission. "We held an organizational
meeting back in April, then pretty much put
the whole thing on hold until after the

Ted Spangenberg and Structures
Engineer Julian McCrary came up
with the concept of a "laser-like"
beam and broached the idea to
McKechnie. McKechnie went to the
drawing board and came up with the
infra-red design.
McKechnie said the beam is
mounted in a weather-proof enclosure
of PVC pipe and supported by poles on
each side of the roadway. The beam is
set at 14 feet. The maximum legal
height in Florida is 13'6".

THURSDAY, JULY 25, 1985


There's not much we like
better than going into a cornfield
and shooting at a mess of doves
flying a straight line away from us
or toward us. We can't hit them
very often, you understand, but we
dearly love the experience of
trying.
During the past few years, this
practice has become harder and
harder because land-owners are
reluctant to open up their lands for
people to shoot. One almost has to
have a special invitation from the
land-owner to shoot doves or
anything else on his property.
This isn't the land-owners'
fault and if we owned a tract of land
in the hunting areas of this or any
other county; we'd probably do just,
as the current crop of owners are
doing-we'd at least semi-close our
property to hunting.
This' situation is the sort of
thing a man by the name of Jesse
Doyle of Panama City was trying to
get the County Commission to
combat last week. Doyle wanted
the Commission to promote actions
which would force, if need be, the
land-owners of. wooded tracts
under the green belt law, to allow
the land to be used for recreation
purposes. Doyle was interested,
primarily, in the recreation of


We don't know Troy Deal from
Adam's house cat, but we have to
believe him when he said the
County Commission didn't have to
take such punitive action to get him
to remove a fence from the right of
way on County Road 30-E some
three weeks ago.
We understand Troy Deal is a
rich man and he owns several
acres of property here in Gulf
County We have never seen the
man, nor has he seen us. We're
strangers to each other. However
we can recognize that he has been
wronged when the county sent him
an official communication with a
deadline attached for removing his
fence.
Mr. Deal, understandably, was
quite short with his words when he
Wrote the County Commission
telling them he didn't appreciate
the way he had been notified of his
fence being in the wrong place and
of The Star referring to him as
"Troy Deal of Orlando". Troy Deal
a man from Orlando, is all we know
about Deal and the only way we
could refer to him. Up until two
weeks ago, the only relationship we
knew of between he and' Gulf
County was the considerable piece
of land he owns on St. Joseph
Peninsula.


hunting and fishing.
We can understand Doyle's
desires. We can also understand
the rights of a land-owner to keep
Jesse Doyle, his 400 club members
and those in sympathy with what
he is promoting, off their land if
they so desire. As much as we
would like to see Doyle's wish come
true, and open land left open to the
public, we understand why it is not.
We have personally witnessed
and been the victim once of how
some of Mr. Doyle's neighbors
treat other people's property and
we can't blame the land-owner one
little bit for closing the boundaries
of their property for their use.
Mr. Doyle is probably a fine
man who wouldn't think of damag-
ing property belonging to another.
While he is probably a prince of a.
fellow, there are those who aren't
and the land-owner is protecting
himself from those few.
Perhaps if the energy spent
trying to get land-owners to let
hunters use their property was
spent, in trying to weed out the
abusers of the property of others,
everybody's problem would be
solved. The hunters would have
open land to hunt on and the
property owner's investment would
be assured of protection.


The Commission drew his
greatest fire for not first contacting
Deal in a friendly manner and
advising him the fence was on
county property. It would seem to
be more appropriate than signing
a resolution giving orders and
setting a deadline for the fence to
be moved off county property--pro-
perty which was given the county
by Mr. Deal, according to Deal.'
While we understand the Coun-
ty Commission's desire to follow
the wishes of constituents which
wanted the fence taken down and
the parking place restored near the
favorite fishing place at the Stump
Hole; it is probably true that Deal
didn't knowwhere the fence was.
In all likelihood, a person or a firm
was hired to put the fence up and
Deal's only connection with the
firm or the fence since it had been
erected was probably to get the bill
for the work.
-" In other words, there's better
than an-even chance that Deal
didn't know the fence was on the
right of way or closed off the mouth
of Lighthouse Bayou.
Now that feathers have been
ruffled, we vote that we all give
Deal a chance to make things right
now that he knows the problem, full
well.


Kesley Colbert's Country Column



Gone to the Dogs


A guy stopped me on the
street a few days ago and
told me I needed to write an
article relating to dog days.
A couple of days ago a neigh-
bor of mine and myself were
huddled up under his porch
watching it rain and he said
"Well, dog days are upon
us." I picked up a hitchhiker
just yesterday on Garrison
Avenue and first thing he
says when he gets in the
truck is, "Man, it's dog day
time."
Now-, I'm an accommodat-


ing kind of guy and I'd like to
write something about dog
days trouble is, I don't
know what dog days are. All
I know is it's hot, humid and
it rains every day. Of course
I can see what you're think-
ing as you read this the
fact that I don't know a thing
about the subject I'm writing
on has never slowed me
down before.....
Shoot-a-mile, I've heard
about dog days all my life,
especially from the old
timers. When we were


a'growing up back home we
used to sit around on the
front porch of Woodrow Ken-
non's grocery store and
listen to Mr. Joe Henry
Latham tell us all about dog
days.
Mr. Joe Henry knew all
about dog days 'course
Mr. Joe Henry knew all
about everything. Now old
Mr. Joe had been-around for
a long time and he told us
he'd even been to Detroit,
Michigan so we knew he was
a world traveller. And, gosh,


Make It Tough


he was old, my dad once said
that Mr. Joe Henry wouldn't
be with us today except Noah
decided to let him get on the
boat. Mr. Latham didn't let
all that knowledge and ex-
perience go to waste either
'cause late in the evening
you could near about always
catch him down at Kennbn's
Store expounding on some
subject.
It was on one of those hot,
humid August nights of yes-
teryear that I heard Mr. Joe
Henry "take off" on dog
days. It seems that dog days
come in about the last of July
and continue through August
as it is this time of year that
the dog star in the zodiac
lines up with something; and
I can't remember what that
dog star lined up with, but


"Bob"


Isn't A Fitting Name for Any Self-Respecting Southern Hurricane


WHAT'S IN A NAME? A name
means a lot to some people and not
much to others. People change their
names for two reasons, either they
don't like the one they were stuck with
or they don't like the person they were
named after.
Rock Hudson is a case in point.
Reading about his illness the other
day, I read where his real name is Roy
Scherer, Jr. He changed his name to
Rock Hudson because it sounder more
like a movie star's name rather than
the manager of the downtown furni-
ture store.
Not that there's anything wrong
with furniture store managers, you
understand, but how many furniture
store managers do you know who are'
movie stars?
There's not many, I'll tell you.
I have a good friend who is a
former furniture store manager-who
is now retired-and he almost chang-
ed his name to something with more
pizzaz. He.has a son who got into the
radio business (poor misguided waif
that he was) and he changed his
name.

My friend who was in the furniture

WHAT STARTED ALL this gar-
bage was "Bob".
"Bob", you know, is our first
Florida hurricane of the year. Even
though "Bob" brought some rain and
a few light squalls with him, he
couldn't even manage a decent high
tide along his pathway.
The trouble, again, was the name.


Whoever heard of a self-respect-
hurricane named "Bob"?
"Bob" sounds like the friendly
at door neighbor who means apple
, picnics, baseball and Saturday







Ago". -.


afternoon grass cuttings. How- can a
person relate the words, "Bob" and
"hurricane"?
"Bob" just doesn't pack any
respect as a hurricane name. "Bob"
is nothing like "Camille", "Eloise",
"Anna", etc. These names sound like
honest-to-goodness hurricanes. There
is not a "Bob" in the bunch.
What I'm getting at is how does
the weather bureau hope to get


people to evacuate low-lying areas
with a "Bob" boring down the coast
line? I wouldn't go; would you?
Actually, a "Bob" sounds,like it
might be more of a help than a means
of destruction. It might mean a
cooling shower or maybe a comfort-
able day or two right in the middle of
the sweat wave.
I can't imagine running from a
"Bob" or boarding up the glass
windows or getting the boat into a safe
harbor. "Bob" wouldn't harm these
things if his life depended on it.
I HAVE HAD and still have
several good friends named "Bob".
In every case, both past and
present, my friends who have been
named "Bob" have been good and
faithful buddies who would do any-
thing in the world to help me and I
would have reciprocated.
Not a one of my friends "Bob"
would have dared flood my house, or
blow the roof off, or cause a tree to fall
across something I owned. They
would never think of it.
I even had one "Bob" friend offer


to lend me money one time.
THOSE PEOPLE AT the weather
bureau just didn't give the naming of
hurricanes much serious thought #
this year, in my opinion. It's evident
when you hear of so-called storms
which have been named "Bob".
Getting back to friends named
"Bob", I had a friend named "Bob"
one time, who zipped around like a
hurricane and was a big blow-hard
like a hurricane. He died, like a
hurricane does when it spends all its
energy getting about over this land of
ours.
I hadn't really thought of it, but
hurricane "Bob" might have really
been named after my late friend as a
fitting memorial.
It is fitting, too, because my
former friend "Bob" huffed and he
puffed and he blew and he whirled
about over the state and he let
everyone know he had been there, but
really, he was just a big soft-hearted
pussy-cat, like "Bob".
That's still no fitting name for a
hurricane.

COLBERT
I'm sure Mr. Joe Henry told
us. I kind'a lost track of his
story as I didn't know what a
zodiac was. Shucks at that
early stage of my life I'd
never even heard of Jean
Dixon so you know I wasn't
aware of a zodiac. I told you
that Mr. Joe Henry knew
a'lots.
Well it seems that this dog
star lined up just right and it
would .get extra hot and
because of the heat some
dogs would go mad. Now I
never personally saw any
mad dogs in August Put I
believed Mr. Joe Henry, and
besides, I never went looking
for them either. I know after
I heard about dog days I
stayed away from Duke and
Blue during August.
I also know that my grand-
mother wouldn't let us go
swimming in the creek dur-
ing dog days if we had any
sore places on us. She said
those sores wouldn't heal. I
had scratched my hand one
summer picking blackber-
ries and Gran wouldn't let
me go to the creek for two
weeks. Of course she could
have been right I stayed
out of the creek and my hand
healed up pretty quick.
Now, I don't want to hurt
anybody's feelings that
believe in zodiacs and dog
stars and mad dogs, etc. but
I think it just got so hot that
folks years ago kind'a just
laid back like an eight-year-
old bluetick hound and took
it easy in the heat. Hence the
name dog days. Of course in
our hurry up, mechanized,
automated, get it done right
now life style of today we
don't have time for dog days.
Seemes kind'a sad, doesn't
it?
I can't wait to see Mr. Joe
Henry Latham again. I want
to ask him if it is true about
those sores not healing.....

THE STAR, Port St. Joe, Fla. THURSDAY, AUG. 1, 1985


Land Use Plan


Legislature came up with concrete guide-
lines for us to go by", she said. Thursday's
meeting was the one in which the
commission actually got started on its job of
declaring which lands in Gulf County would
be used for what.
Both McNeill and Manuel were opposed
to using the word "zoning" in connection
with the work of their committee. "I don't
think the state expects us to go that far",
McNeill said. "We have a strong element in
our county opposed to the concept of
zoning", Manuel said. "Our people feel a


person should have some say about what he
uses his land for", he continued.
Even so, there will be some restrictions
put on land use by the end result of the work
of the Planning Commission.
STATE REQUIREMENT
These restrictions are being required by
the State of Florida because officials say the
state is in a ticklish situation: the state is
growing, and the most growth is targeting in
on the most fragile portions of the state
along the waterways and coastlines. "The


(Continued from Page 1)


state is determined to protect this delicate
environment and have made the land use
plans across the state mandatory as a
means of protecting the state's future."
Presently, there are no restrictions here
in Gulf County for development of open
lands, except those set out by the state in
set-back lines, flood plain elevations,
building set-back lines and state-mandated
local building codes. As E. F. Gunn, building
inspector for Port St. Joe said at the first
planning commission's meeting last Friday.
"right now they can do anything they want',


referring to land developers.
Mrs. McNeill said no definite meeting
schedule has yet been developed for the
Planning Commission. "Actually, we'll
probably be breaking up into several
smaller committees to consider different
problems. Right now, we're committed to
bringing a report of our activities to the
County Commission in the next few weeks".
Mrs. McNeill indicated their job will take
every bit of the two years being allotted for
it by the State of Florida and would possibly
take the expertise of professional planners
to be brought in before the job is completed.

tist Church Sunday, August 4.

Last fiscal year, Gulf's Commission
levied a rate of 5.249.
During the coming fiscal year. the
- Commission faces the added expense of
operation of the garbage compacting station
here in south Gulf County as a joint venture
with the City of Port St. Joe: The Board also
faces the formidable task of replacing the
$168,000 federal revenue funds which are
being withdrawn.
Tuesday night, the Commission also
approved an increase'in salary for county
employees of 30 cents per hour. The increase

in salary amounts to approximately 4/2

Benny Lister, county financial officer,
told the Commission Tuesday night, the
increased costs and services being required
of the county would increase last year's
budget some $217,000. "However, you will
have some healthy sums of cash to carry
forward in several of the budgets which will
ease the pain of this increase considerably".
Lister said it might be possible to cut the
millage later on if the county gets a definite
answer on whether or not revenue sharing
will be cut out. "Right now, we don't know
for sure. Indications are that it will be and
we can't afford to count on that source of
income for budget making purposes", he

Local pharmacist Gannon.
Buzzett reminded the Kiwanr-
is Club of some of the drastic'
changes made .in medicine-
over the past years Tuesday.
Buzzett had several bottles of
medicines which were "old'
'reliables" a few years ago:
but which are never seen any
more-replaced by the mo-_
dern drugs and medicines of
today.
Buzzett said a pharmacist
doesn't mix and measure
medicines as much as he did
just a few years ago. "The
strength and power of mod-
ern drugs necessitates a very
accurate measure in grams
and. fractions of grams,
which' is the main reason
most -medicines are pre-
pared for consumption be-
fore they are shipped to the
pharmacist", Buzzett said.
In his samplings, which
Buzzett said he had collected
and saved over the years,
were quinine, Waterbury

thick, and can often be
heavy. For greater comfort
and good looks, follow these
, tips:
shave the prescription
made in the new, thinner
k lenses now available in
glass or plastic.
Avoid overly large frames
which need a very large
lens (the larger the lens,
the thicker its edge)
*choose a rimmed frame
that plays down the thick-
ness of lenses
Certain "farsighted"
lenses can also be uncom-
monly thick in the center.
People with high plus correc-
tions' should also consider
the new thinner lenses and
avoid oversized frames.
In many instances, contact
lenses may be an excellent
choice. Today's improved
contacts are not only invisi-
ble but are easier to wear on
a daily or extended-wear
basis.

Reports

I have been contacted by
many officials throughout the
Second Congressional District
concerned with the future of
revenue sharing. Right now,
revenue sharing is part of the
budget stalemate between the
House and Senate and it is im-
possible to predict with certain-
ty what amounts will be
approved.
: In all likelihood, revenue
sharing will be safe through
.September 1986, although
funding for the coming year
may be slightly reduced,
perhaps as much as 25%.
As of October '1, 1986,
revenue sharing will probably
cease to exist. The program
worked well in the 1970s when
federal deficits were low and
many cities and counties were
having financial difficulties.
Presently it is the federal
government which has the most
fiscal restraints placed on it and
*'we need to reduce discretionary
funding.
I have advised these officials
.:to count on revenue sharing for
.the coming year but that they
: will have to readjust their own
budgets as.of October 1986, to
either raise additional revenues
locally, or through the state, or
reduce some services if they
cannot absorb the loss of
federal funds.


Recent reports indicate that
we are facing a potentially
critical shortage of nurses in the
years ahead. The difficulty has
been attracting qualified indi-
viduals to the field and retain-

ing them.


With this in mind, I am
pleased to be able to report that
the House of Representatives
has approved a three-year
authorization for nurse training
education. The bill includes
grants to educational institu-
tions for nursing education and
training programs and should be
of benefit to the already fine
nursing schools at Florida A. &
M. and Florida State Univer-
sities..


Work continues on the 1985
Farm Bill. This legislation,
renewed every three years, is
our basic agricultural legislation
that sets up programs for just
about all farm products. I am
hopeful for orderly action which
will permit serious consideration
of the problems facing our
farmers today.
Farm credit remains a
serious problem and our farmers
need'assistance in these difficult
economic times, Programs for
dairy products and peanuts
must be re-written and we may
consider the tobacco program
as well, although it does not
require reauthorization.
I anticipate that the Farm Bill
will reach the floor of the House
of Representatives in early
September and I will have more
on this in future reports.

WHAT IS AN
ITCH?
It may start off as just a little "tingly" sensation
that a quick rub seems to take care of. But. it may end
up as an almost uncontrollable urge to scrape off part
of your skin. It could come about as the result of a
bite-fly, mosquito, gnat. etc; a food that doesn't agree
with your body chemistry-1-chocolate, nuts: a poor
choice of leaves-poison oak or ivy. It may also result
from some organic illness, simple or serious.
Just ias there are numerous causes of the itch so
there are medicines that can help to relieve it. Which
one? Your physician will be able to pinpoint the cause
of your itching problem and recommend one of the
many preparations we stock. Don't scratch needlessly.

One Million Alligators In Fla.


The rapid disappearance of
Florida's wetlands beneath
highly, profitable condomini-
um complexes and other
commercial ventures has
forced wildlife authorities to
consider new strategies for
preservation' of the state's


wilderness areas.
"One way to save the
wetlands is to make it
profitable to save them,"
said Tommy Hines, wildlife
research laboratory supervi-
sor for the Florida Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commis-


sion.
According to Hines, con-
ducting limited harvests of
Florida alligators could be
profitable enough to encour-
age wetland owners to pre-
serve, rather than develop,
their properties.
Last year, the Commission
approved a proposal to au-
thorize the experimental har-
vest of a limited number of.
alligators from a variety of
habitats. Hines said such
experiments enable scien-
tists to refine, strategies for
wise use of natural resour-
ces, such as alligators.
Deseret Ranches in central
Florida and Babcock Ranch-
es in Charlotte County re-
cently received final staff
approval from the Commis-
sion's executive director for
an experimental harvest of
alligators and alligator eggs.
Most of the eggs are to be
removed from areas of harsh
habitat, where hatchlings
have little chance of :survi-
val,
The Commission staff also
has developed a plan to allow
a limited alligator harvest
this year on public waters,
specifically: Lake George in
the Central Region; Lake
Trafford in the Everglades
Region; Lakes Miccosukee
and lamonia in the North-
west Region; Lake Hancock
in the South Region; and
Lake Oklawaha in the North-
east Region,
As with the private wetland
alligator harvest, an annual

public harvest would lend.
economic incentives for pre-
servation of the natural state
of Florida's lakes.
"Hunters, hide dealers and
meat packers would have a
vested interest in preserving
the lakes and other alligator
habitats," Hines.said.
The number of alligators to
be taken during the experi-
ment will depend on the
results of a census of the
reptiles prior to the hunt.
Plans are for actual hunting
to take place between late.
August and October.,
The Commission's alliga-
tor program coordinator,
Dennis David, said the Com-
mission plans to conduct
public meetings in each
region to select persons who
live near the lakes, to take
part in the experimental
harvest. Hunters will be
selected on a quota system.
During the past four years,
results of experimental alli-
gator harvests in the Gaines-
ville area have indicated
that the reptiles can with-
stand limited annual har-
vests.
Contrary to a popular
misconception, alligators no
longer are classified as an
"endangered species" in
Florida. The Commission
classifies them as a "species
of special concern"-, which
means they are not in
immediate danger of extinc-
tion but require strictly con-
trolled management. The U.
S. Fish and Wildlife Service,
as of June 20, changed its
classification of Florida alli-
gators from "threatened" to
"Threatened by similarity of
appearance," which means
they resemble alligators
from areas such as Alabama
and Mississippi where they
are classified as "endanger-


ed species."
Florida's alligator popula-
tion is difficult to estimate,
but scientists say one million
alligators is not an unreason-
able guess.
The experimental harvest
proposal is not connected
with the state's nuisance
alligator control program.
