-.. Weather Flag System nistalled:


Boaters venturing out into St. Joseph
Bay will -no longer' be sailing into the
bounding main with little more than a
wet finger poked into the air for a
weather report.
With the boat landing at the west end
of Fifth Street becoming more popular
and water activities drawing more and
more attention, arrangements have been
made by the Fish and Game Commission'
to provide a weather warning service'at
the Fifth Street launching site to warn
boaters of dangerous weather before
they go out on the bay. Buck Richter,
local officer with the Marine 'Patrol has
arranged for the State of Florida to
provide a flag pole at the launch site and
a set of weather signal flags to be
furnished to give the weather warning.
In case of approaching 'weather


which might be dangerous to small boats,
the Marine Patrol will alert the local
police department, who has custody of
the weather warning flags. On receiving
the warning, the police department will
display the proper warning flag on the
flag pole.
Police Chief Bob Maige said the
system warns of approaching storms,
hurricanes, squalls and gales.
SThe system will use the universal
Coast Guard signals which display a
triangle red flag as a small craft
warning, two triangle flags as a gale
warning, a single square red flag with a
black square center means a storm is
coming and two of the flags signals an
approaching hurricane.
The flag pole was erected late last
week by City crews.

Rising Expenses and Reduced Revenues


Port St. Joe's City Com-
mission revealed Tuesday
night the City taxes will


follow county and school
board tax levies in going up
this year.


Unions Voting

Members'of the three representative operating unions
at St. Joe Paper Company, will cast their vote for
acceptance or rejection of the latest contract proposal
made the unions by the paper manufacturing firm Monday
afternoon, according to R. C. Lewis, president of the-
Electrical Workers' Union. ,
The company has been negotiating with the three
unions which represent the papermakers, machinists and
electrical workers for the past few weeks. The unions'
working agreement contracts expired the last of July and
the crafts have been working without an official contract in
force since that date.
The unions have turned down one contract offer from
the company. The vote Monday will be on the second offer.
Neither the unions nor the company are releasing any
particulars concerning their negotiations except to say the
two sides are trying to reach agreement on retirement,
insurance and holiday matters.



Mexico Beach


Reinstates Ake

,,. ...... On Divided Votes


The Mexico -Beach Town.
Council voted to put police
patrolman Dennis' Ake back
to work in a special meeting
Tuesday night. The agree-
ment came on a 3-2 vote to
re-instate Ake after he has
been suspended with pay for
several weeks, pending an
investigation into a charge of
police brutality brought
against him by Chuck Price.
Price had filed the charge
against Ake, accusing the
policeman of using excessive
force in May when Price was
arrested by Ake.
Since that time,. a three
man investigation team has
been looking into the matter,
to determine whether or not,
in their opinion, Ake used
tactics which would result in

Builds A Flying Fishing Boat


A boat to fly fishing in should be the ultimate of every
serious fisherman's dream. Joel Strait, of Port St. Joe isn't
that much of an avid fisherman, but he's that much of an
avid flyer especially of planes he has made and
partially designed himself.
Strait used an ancient idea in designing and building
this flying fishing boat under his carport. The project has
occupied his spare time since October of last year and this


week, he put the craft in the water and taxied it about for a
while. "I'm just floating around, getting the feel of the
craft right now, before I finally take off and fly it", Strait
said. He said the original design was by Octave Chanute
(whoever that was) who made the design about the time
the Wright Brothers were designing their plane. The
Wright brothers turned the design down, but Strait didn't.

the police brutality accusa-
tion.
The meeting Tuesday night
was called specifically to
consider the report from the
investigating team and make
a decision on Ake's future
with the Mexico Beach Police
Department.
The text of the report were
not revealed at the meeting
and the report itself is sealed
at the present time. The
confidentiality of the report
language has been sealed
because the incident could go
to court, with Price entering
suit against Ake and the
Town of Mexico Beach.
Three of the Councilmen,
Mayor Bob Heathcock and
Councilmen Bob Timmons
and Frank Gholson voted to
reinstate Ake to his job with
.certain stipulations. Coun-
cilmen Al Cathey 'and Tom
Marquardt voted to termin-
ate Ake.
Heathcock said the report
showed the three-man inves-
tigating panel was unani-
mous in their decision that
Ake had not used excessive
force and conducted himself
in a proper manner. The
Mayor said the report re-
commended that Ake be
re-activated on the police
force.
Cathey said he and Mar-
quardt didn't feel the report
cleared Ake sufficiently to
restore the Town's confi-
dence in the police force were
Ake to be put back on duty.
"In my opinion, the matter
makes the entire Police
Department very vulner-
able" Cathey said. "I have
nothing personal against
Ake,' but I thought it in the
best interest of the Town as a
who)e that he not be put back
on active duty. It's sort of a
hardship that we can't re-
lease the report at this time.
The re-instatement to ac-
tive duty doesn't end the
matter. Mayor Heathcock
and Councilmen Timmons
and Gholson stipulated that
Ake be placed on six months
of probation, receive ad-
ditional on the job training
and monthly progress re-
ports be furnished the Town
Council.
Ake was a rookie on the
police force at the time of the
incident, with very little
experience on the street. He
had been a dispatcher with
the Gulf County Sheriff's
Department for a couple of
years before being employed
by Mexico Beach.


Like other government
subdivisions in Gulf County,
the City is faced with unusual
rising expenses and reduced
income-primarily, revenue
sharing-in their 1985-86 bud-
get plans.
The unusual expenses for
the City of Port St. Joe
include making an annual
$150,000 payment on a court
award for damages in a
traffic accident involving a
City fire truck four years
ago. The City is also faced
with making a $42,000 pay!
ment to the Florida Patient's
Compensation, Fund to pay
for court decisions in medical
malpractice cases which oc-
cured when the City owned
and operated Municipal Hos-
pital.
"We've had these' expenses
for the last couple of years",
Clerk Alden Farris said, "but
we have been able to take the
payments out of our' cash


reserve fund. The fund is now
depleted to the point where
we can't depend on it as a
source for making these
payments any longer. The
expenses must be passed on
'to the tax payer", he said.
The proposed mill rate for
the City has been established
at 5.071. Last year's mill rate
was 3.857. The rate establish-
ed Tuesday night was for
certification purposes. The
rate may be reduced before
the budget is finalized, but it
cannot be increased except
through complicated maneu-
vers.
The value of taxable pro-
perty in Port St. Joe this
coming tax year has been
established at $146,925,045,
reflecting an increase of
$931,963 over last year's
taxable value. Each mill of
taxes in Port St. Joe will
produce $146,925 in income.


CONSIDER CHANGES
Commissioner James Rob-
erts made the suggestion that
now is the time for the City to
investigate the feasibility of
contracting garbage service
to a private contractor. Rob-
erts said he was hot advocat-
ing abandoning the present
service at this time. "I think
we owe it to the City and its
residents to at least take a
long look at the possibility of
changing. At least a couple of
other cities in our area have
changed and are pleased
with the results".
Roberts said he was not
interested in the City getting
out of the trash collection
business, but a change in
garbage collection responsi-
bilities may be good for the
city.
Roberts also wanted the
Board to consider putting the

Teachers, School Board Negotiators

Arrive at Working Contract Deal

Spokesmen .for the .Gulf County bargaining representatives said they
Clas~srooom -Teachers and the Gulf would not reveal the stipulations of the
County School Board, said late last week new agreement at this time because


thar'both sides or-the bargaining'agents'
had agreed in principal to a new working
agreement for the teachers and the
School .Board.
The teachers and School Board
representatives have been in negotia-
tions for a little- more than three weeks,
trying to iron out working contract
differences for ratification of a new
working agreement.
Both the teacher and School Board


neither the B6ard nor the rank and file
teachers have seen or approved of the
pact which was agreed to by the
bargaining agents.
Temple Watson, chief School Board
negotiator, acting as spokesman in the
matter said both sides had agreed not to
reveal any parts of the new contract until
it could at least be reported in person to
the two groups involved.

Old bleachers at Shark Stadium being structure on the visitor's side of the field.
taken down to make way for a new, safer -Star photo


New Football Seating


Work was well under way. toward
removing the old wooden bleachers at the
high school football stadium which will be
replaced by an 'aluminum bleacher system.
The old wooden bleachers, which were
built on a steel framework, have been a
constant source of maintenance since they
were first constructed some 20 years ago. At
a recent School Board meeting, Superinten-
dent .of Schools Walter Wilder, labeled the
seating as unsafe and in need of extensive
repairs and painting.* "They should be
replaced:' Wilder said.
This week, they are being replaced.
Diversified Aluminum of Marianna was
the successful bidder to replace the old with
the new for a bid of. $32,355.


The old bleachers were formerly the.
"good" bleachers at the stadium and seated
the home crowd for several years after the
new football stadium was built back in the
middle 50's. When the newer pre-stressed
concrete seating structure was erected on
the "home" side of the field,the old wooden
structures were up-rooted and moved to the
"visitor" side, where they have been in
service ever since.
The metal seating units will provide the
stadium with seating on both sides of the
field which is virtually maintenance-free
and considerably more safe than the ancient
facilities which are being torn down.
The new. seating will be ready for use
before the first football game of the 1985
season.

Federal Budget Cuts



Drifting Down


Comments


Kesley Colbert's Country Column


It looks like the people of Gulf
County are going to be faced with
the same situation on a local level
as they face on the national level.
There is going to have to be some
increase in tax payments or some
decrease in services one or
another.
The national treasury is al-
ready starting its cutting back on.
services, which is one of the
reasons for the need for a tax
increase or severe cut-back on a
local level.
For several years now, our
local governments have received
what could be considered a very
healthy sum from the Federal
Government. It wasn't enough to
run the government without any
taxes, but it was enough to help
fund some of these things it's nice
to have but we really didn't have
: the money to pay for.
Now, we really don't have the
money to pay for them. If these
things, introduced on the strength of
.that federal money coming in, are
continued, our people will have to
put up the money. It's as simple as
that.
We have seen the introduction

"'" i~" 7,"

"Diamond

When you read the newspapers
about such things as a crook up in
New York state sending out bills
for from $4 to $9 for jewelry folks
never ordered and may never get,
you probably shake your head
wonderingly and give thanks once
again that you live in a small place
where such scams are not a
menace.
- Think again.
This very scam, reported in
last Friday's daily press, was felt
here in Port St. Joe.
One person brought in his bill
which he received fb6r $4, from
S a "Gallery" on Fifthf.Avenue. The"
bill was for "sizing" a "genuine
diamond ring" which had arrived
at "our Fifth Avenue gem vaults,
and is ready for immediate ship-
ment to you" on payment of the
sum printed on the bill.
Of course, the local addressee
had not ordered nor purchased a
-. diamond ring. Neither did he fall
for this scam.
The $4 was not sent, but,
according to the Friday news
article, that firm was receiving
some $2,500 a day from people who
were taking advantage of the'
"good fortune" which was theirs
from a diamond ring "mistakenly"
sent in their name to the gem vault.
The Friday article said the
postal inspectors were clamping
down on the operators of the


of several services in our county
since Revenue Sharing started
which provide several jobs, fill a
definite need and offer a valuable
service to many of our people. We
don't think we have wasted that
Federal money, but the bald fact
remains, it is not there any more.
Here .in Gulf County, for
instance, the Federal payment
amounted to approximately $168,-
000 last year. That's a half mill of
local taxes.
Since better than half our
county homesteads pay no ad
valorem taxes, due to the healthy
state homestead exemption act,
it may be quite a chore to stir up
any interest against taxes being
increased for any reason. If folks
aren't paying taxes, it stands to
reason they won't be overly
disturbed if the rest of us are forced
to.
We don't see any real strong
local objections to any of the
current programs being financed
by taxes. It would just make it a
little easier if those of us who pay
taxes, had more help in our
opportunity.
And, we're not expecting' any
great number of volunteers.



'In A Poke

swindle, but just in case you
received one of the bills, don't send
money, send it to the Post Office.
They'll handle it.


Chapter 11

Fidel Castro has, in effect,
declared a Chapter 11 on us. He is
now urging Latin American coun-
.tries to ignore payments on the
total of $360 BILLION in foreign
debt owed mostly to the United
States, .while they stick. out the
,othe R.hand to receive more.
The way things have operated
in the past, following Castro's
suggestion might even sweeten the
pot of available dollars for the
Latin countries.
Last week, Peru took a modi-
fied version of Castro's approach to
their foreign debt by asking for
permission to repay at their own
pace rather than observe the
agreed-to payment plan,
Peru says they will repay, but
at a pace.which will not bankrupt
the nation to do so.
We see nothing wrong in that.
Nobody objects to a good faith
gesture to'do the right thing.
One could only expect such a
suggestion as 'Castro's, however,
and hope we have a vote on
whether or not he ever gets another
dollar of U.S. money.


Next .
I guess the first time I
noticed them was the very
first time I went calling on
my "bride-to-be". It seems
like they were just sitting
around out in the front yard
and out in the side yard and
out in the backyard and over
in the neighbor's yard. I
hadn't seen so many children
all gathered up in one place
since Mr. Holland's ice
cream truck turned over up
on new 22 and everybody was
a'trying to help him "take
care" .of his Dutch Bars
before they melted. It seems
like I should have asked
Cathy what all those
young'uns were doing over at
her house; but, shucks, I
guess I was seriously in love
and didn't have time for idle
chit-chat about a group of
little children hanging
around her house. I thought
maybe they had loosened
some boards up on the
bridge, and they were a'wait-


* *


in for Mr. Holland to come
along. Maybe they had gath-
ered up for a game of
kick-the-can.
You know, I was a little
surprised when Cathy invited
me over for dinner one
evening and I found that not
only were all those children
still at her house, but it was
apparent that at least forty
or fifty of them were a'goin to
eat supper with us. They had
tables, chairs and plates set
up in three different rooms. I
spent four years at a college
that didn't seat that many
folks for its evening meal. I
said hello to Mrs. Cotham,
took my place at one of the
tables and then asked Cathy,
"Mr. Holland hadn't been by
yet?"
You ever try to eat chitlins
with two kids in your lap.
Hey, I'm talking about two
kids that I'd never seen
before. You know, as I was
feeding them the last of mv


stewed tomatoes, I noticed
that they both had eyes like
Cathy. Now, I'm here to tell
you that Mrs. Cotham could
fix up those chitlins that
would melt in your mouth but
somehow I just couldn't
muster up much of an
appetite- I kept looking
around and wondering who
all these children belonged
to. Maybe they were waiting
for Walt to open up ,a
Disneyworld in the Cotham
back yard.
The day that Cathy and I
got married, as we were
walking up the aisle with
Lefty Wiggleton and the boys
playing the Hank Williams
classic "Move It On Over" in
the background, I finally
figured that I was in the
family enough to ask about
all the extras that hung
around her house. Just about
the time we got to the back of
the church, I turned to her
and said "Cathy, who are all


those children that I bump
into everytime I come over to
your house?". She answered,
"Those are my brother and
sisters." As they would say in
those dime novels- I left the
church speechless.
Listen now, she had one
brother, all the rest-of them
were sisters. Cathy was the
oldest. I thought about it
some and heck, I love a large
family- the more the merri-
er- so I just tried to fit right
in. Besides, all of them that I
had actually met were very
nice young ladies. Then one
day Cathy comes in and says
that one of her sisters is
getting married and we've
got to go up early and help Jo
Blair get ready. We drive 600
miles, Jo Blair says "I do"
and we drive 600 miles back.
I walk in the house, worn out
after the trip, fix me a
tomato sandwich and the
phone rings. I'm about half
way through that sandwich


WLBERT
when Cathy comes in and
says "Hurry up and finish
your meal, we've got to go
'back to Tennessee- Gay is -
getting married."
I lost track of the names
long ago. Now I just ask
which number is this and how
many are left. They've got a
standing reservation at the
church, the second Sunday
afternoon of each month.
Now this is not going to come
as a surprise to anyone-
we're marrying off another
one this weekend. My wife is
already up there helping
them "get ready". I just go
up now for that "I do" part-
I've got all the preliminaries
down pat.
I can't stand many more

probably get quick approval of a
strike against the baseball players, if
they keep up their present shenani-
gans.
It's hard to screw up any kind of
sympathy for the present or the
retirement future of anyone making

come across with a little more cash

baseball player. Here I am getting
near the age of retirement, and the
future looks shaky unless I can
remain on the job.
Would any self-respecting base-

Are you going to stand for that?

on my house to give me room to wash
up without having to go out in the
back yard and use the water hose, but
even that was better than goin' down
to the crick ("creek" to some folks),
so I wouldn't know what to strike for.
Can you strike without having a
reason?"


I'M WONDERING if the
players do strike, does that mean that
in return they will have to win the
games their fans want them to win in
return for the increased salary and
benefits?
That's going to be tough to do.
Some fans will want the Braves to win
the league championship and the
World Series, in spite of Len Barker's
sore arm.
Meanwhile, those folks out in Los
Angeles will forget their prejudices
toward Mexicans and expect Fernan-
do and the Dodgers to do what we're
expecting the Braves to do. It's a
lead-pipe cinch both teams can't
please their fans in this one.
I feel, though, if the players get
what they are asking for, they will be
expected to perform to the fullest
expectations of those of us who own
'the game.


SERIOUSLY, I HAVE mix d
feelings about this threatened base-
ball strike thing. It isn't a matter to be
taken lightly or to make jokes about.
If we're going to consider more
remuneration of one sort or another
for the baseball players, we should
also require something in return.
It doesn't seem to be too unrea-
sonable for us to expect an act in good
faith if we make millionaires of
anyone who plays professional base-
ball, for the rest of his natural life.
If we give in, or the baseball
players force a settlement out of us
through a strike, we, the fans, should
expect something tangible in return. I
think a good piece of evidence in good
faith would be for Rick Camp to hit
another home run. If he can hit the
homer before the 1990 season, give
them the money. If he can't, play on
and shut up!

Permits from Department

of Environmental Regulation
were issued a month ago to
replace the crumbling, in-
adequate wooden dock facil-
ity with a new, larger, steel
piling and concrete dock
structure on both sides of the
slip.
Now that the permit has
been received, the City finds
itself short of cash to perform
jobs like this at the present
time. Last week, the City
made a request of the County
for some of the state money
coming to the county for boat
landing maintenance be fun-
neled into the Port St. Joe
project. The County agreed
to furnish a little more than
$5,000 for the project, since
the launch site is the only
public site in Gulf County on
St. Joseph Bay with the
exception of the site in the
State Park on the Peninsula.
Tuesday, the Commission
'decided to approach the
county for a joint venture in
the project and at least get
one side of the project
completed in a short while.

Part of the plane's concept and design is Strait's own
idea. Mixed in with his and Chanute's design are patent
rights he purchased of different ideas which he has
incorporated in the craft.
So, like Topsy, Strait's "flying fishing boat" just grew
from a conglomeration of ideas and hopefully, when Strait
finally takes off and flies the small plane, everything will
go well and Strait will come back down-well.
The plane is designed for fishing in lakes and bays and
for transporting to hard-to-get-to places. "The wings and
tail fold up so it can be transported behind a car on a
trailer", Strait said.
The plane is entirely experimental. It has a frame of
wood, stainless steel and aluminum. The cover on the
wing is dacron and the craft is entirely dependent.on water
for landing and taking off. It has no wheels. The plane is
powered by a 1600 cc Super Beetle Volkswagen engine,
modified to meet aircraft engine specifications.
Strait didn't say what plans he has for the flying
fishing boat if, indeed, it does fly and if it can be
successfully used for fishing.


Defenders Meet


A Need In the


System

"Public Defenders make
sure those who cannot afford
an attorney have competent
representation in court when
and if they face criminal
charges", attorney Fred Wit-
ten told the Kiwanis Club
Tuesday.
Public Ikfenders in the.
14th Judicial Circuit, of
which Gulf County is a part,
are practicing attorneys who
spend part of their time as
the public defender. "Virgil
Mayo of Blountstown is the
Circuit's Public Defender,
elected to the office", Witten
told the Kiwanians. "I and
others who serve are assist-
ants to the Public Defender
and are all part time em-.
ployees of the office. It is my

pointed out.
"It is our responsibility to

OBITUARI ES:


THE LONG's


The only female pastor in
Franklin County performed
her final service at the First
Assembly of God Church on
Brownsville Road on Sunday,
August 4.
Rev. Long had been the
pastor at the church for 20
years.
Rev. Long plans to return
to evangelism when she
leaves Apalachicola.
She and her husband,
Lewis will be going to
DeFuniak Springs. Although
that will be their home base,
Rev. Long said she plans to
travel the evangelical circuit
holding revivals at Assembly
of God churches in West
Florida and South Alabama.
In her 20 years, Rev. Long
said she has seen the congre-

nation of the church nearly
quadruple and has seen a
very positive change in the
degree of cooperatiofl be-
tween the various ministries
and denominations in the
county.
Leaving the local church is
not going to be easy, she said,
stating, "There's a lot of
emotions to leaving a congre-
gation. It's a very emotional
experience because we love
not only the people of the
church but also the people
of the town. It has really been
the best 20 years of our
lives."
An ordained minister since
1967, Rev. Long said she was
looking forward to returning
to evangelism, saying, "I
hope to touch a lot of lives."

Looking

for R.N.

Volunteer
The Community Care for
the Elderly program of the
Gulf County Senior Citizens
Association needs a register-
ed nurse for a total of
approximately 48 hours of
volunteer service from now
through June 30, 1986.
The service will consist of
making about six visits to
eight clients receiving per-
sonal care services through
the program for the purpose
of supervising the activities
of the personal care worker.
Failure to locate an R.N. to
give this supervision may
result in having to drop this
valuable service to home-
bound and incapacitated
clients. If you are an R.N.
and can spare these very few
hours per month, contact
Donna Doolittle or Charlene
Thomas at 229-8466.

TEENAGERS &
CONTACT LENSES
The teen years are a good
time for fitting contact
lenses. The average teen-
ager is highly motivated,
may be self-conscious about
wearing glasses and adapts
easily to change.
Many teenagers don't
wear glases, even though
they should in order to see
more clearly at school, on
the ballfield, at the movies
and when driving. They'd
rather not see well than be
seen in glasses. Some avoid
social situations. Others
allow their school work to
suffer. But fit these young-
sters with contact lenses and
their whole world changes.
They feel good-looking, are
happier and see better.
Most teenagers are
responsible enough to wear
contact lenses, but need
education in their care.
Teens are cautioned not to
overwear the lenses,
especially in the beginning.
The importance of eye
hygiene to prevent infection
is emphasized. Teens are
told to return to the optome-
trist's office for regular
follow-up exams, or when-
ever vision is unclear or
discomfort develops.

WHAT ARE
CATARACTS?
In Latin, cataract means "water fall." To ancient
medical observers this appeared to best describe the
hazy film that seemed to fall over the lens. Today a
cataract is defined as any clouding of the lens that
alters or blocks the passage of light and thus
interferes with vision. Cataracts are not growths and
are not contagious. They are not caused or hastened by
reading, sewing or watching movies.
Among known causes are diseases such as a
diabetes, hereditary influence, radiation, dietary
deficiencieS, and chemical damage. Early diagnosis is.
important. Sometimes surgery is indicated, in others
just eye glasses may do the job. Occasionally drops can
be prescribed to control the vision.

When a loved one passes on
to His Eternal Reward with
The Father, His Son, Our
Saviour, Jesus Christ, and
the Holy Spirit it should be a
joyous occasion for those left
behind, and so it was for us,
but as Jesus wept at the tomb
of Lazarus, His Friend, so
we, the family of .Byron
Eells, Jr. lament his absence
from our midst.
And like the friends of
Lazarus, you, the wonderful
kind and caring people of
Port St. Joe, came to us with
offerings of love, concern,
delicious foods, and assist-
ance to help us pass this
initial shock of grief. We
don't believe there are words.
yet formed to describe ade-
quately the feeling of appre-
ciation and gratefulness for
all you did for us. You see, it
DOES make a difference to
live in a small town, especial-
ly our beloved Port St. Joe.
The Eells Family

CARD OF THANKS
From the depths of our
hearts we want to say
"Thank You" to all our
friends, neighbors, and ac-
quaintances for the prayers,
flowers, cards, letters, visits,
and numerous other acts of
kindness bestowed upon us
during our recent illness.
Words .cannot begin to
express our appreciation but
we pray that God will richly,
- bless you as He has. us.
Thank You all!
Mr. and Mrs. C. E.
Glass, Jr & Family

CARD OF THANKS
I wish to thank my friends
in Port St. Joe for the cards
and floral arrangements sent
me during my recent stay in
the hospital.
Your thoughtfulness and
prayers offered in my behalf
are very much appreciated.

According to an official at
the Department of Health
and Rehabilitative Services,
there is a growing awareness
among the American public
about the current famine in
Africa. Ann Rhode, Program
Supervisor of the WIC and
Nutrition Services Program
in Florida, says, "Such cele-
brity projects as USA for
Africa and Live Aid have
opened the eyes of the
citizens of the United States
to the horrors of hunger."
"Strangely, the plight of
the malnourished in this
nation is often overlooked.
The effects of malnutrition
are not as dramatic in this
country as in Africa, but they


individual must be examined
by a physician, nurse, or
nutritionist and found to have
a special nutritional need for
the WIC foods. Standards for
participation in the WIC
Program are the same for
everyone regardless of race,
color, national origin, age,
sex or handicap.
If you live in Gulf County
and would like to apply for
the WIC Program, contact
the Bay County Public
Health Unit, 717 East 7th
Street, Panama City (904)
785-9266. If you live outside of
Gulf County, contact the

are just as painful. For
instance, if a pregnant
woman does not get enough
of the right kinds of food
during pregnancy, her baby
may be born smaller than
normal- greatly increasing
its chances of developing
severe health problems dur-
ing the first year of life.
Children who don't get
enough iron-rich foods are
likely to develop anemia,
contributing to listlessness,
poor learning, and frequent
illness," says Rhode, a Re-
gistered Dietitian.
However, Rhode says that
there is a program in this
area that is helping to
decrease malnutrition.
Known as the WIC Program
(Women, Infants and Child-
ren), this federally-funded
project provides highly-
nutritious foods to pregnant
women, women who have
recently given birth, women
who are breast-feeding and
infants and children up to age
five.
"The WIC Program pro-
vides milk, cheese, eggs,
fruit juice, cereal, infant
formula, infant cereal, and
infant juice," says Rhode.
"These foes supply protein,
calcium, iron and vitamin
C."
The WIC Program is free.
However, to qualify for the
Program, an individual must
fall below certain income
guidelines. Additionally, an

Crape Myrtle Admired for Easy Landscaping


Easy to
BY ROY LEE CARTER
County Extension Director
The crape myrtle is one of
the most rewarding small
trees or large shrubs for the
landscape. Its ease of propa-
gation, long blooming period
and ability to grow under
nearly every soil condition
makes the crape myrtle a
widely used and greatly
admired ornamental. My in-
formation for this article was
provided by Extension Horti-
culturist Dr. Robert J. Black
with IFAS at the University
of Florida.
The flowering season for
crape myrtle begins in June
or July, and continues until
fall. Each long cluster of
flowers paniclee) is com-
posed of hundreds of one to
two-inch red, pink, white,
lavender or purple flowers.
Leaves are often garnet
tinged in the spring, glossy
dark green in the summer,
and dull to intense yellow,
orange or red in the autumn.
When the leaves fall in the
winter, the crape myrtle
becomes a living sculpture.
The.trunk and branches have
an. attractively gnarled,
twisted character with.
smooth bark varying in color
from light straw to rich deep
brown. Patches of bark flake
off (exfoliate) in the early
summer to reveal new bark
ranging in color from light
pink to pale green.
Crape myrtle is very ver-
satile in the residential land-
scape. Single-trunked or
multi-trunked specimens
make ideal small shade trees
for a sunny deck, terrace, or
entrance walkway. Multi-
trunked plants can beused as
a visual barrier, a specimen
plant in the garden, or a
dominant landscape feature
when planted singly or in
groups. Semi-dwarf types
are suitable for foundation

plantings, use in containers,
or even as larger ground
covers. Occasional pruning
may be required to maintain
desired size and form. Back-
ground plantings of ever-
green shrubs or trees may be
employed to further empha-
size the floral spectacle of
crape myrtle. Crape myrtle
can be used to create an
alleee" in a large garden
area. Allees are usually long
walkways where the plants'
are spaced so their canopies
touch and enclose the path-
ways. There is even a
patented, miniature weeping
form good for use as a bonsai
plant or in hanging baskets.
Crape myrtle should be
located in an area that
receives full sunlight for
most of the day. Otherwise, a
weak spindly plant with a few
flowers can be expected.
Plants growing in shaded
areas will also be plagued by
plant diseases such as pow-
dery mildew.
Crape myrtle tolerates a
wide range of soil condition,
but grows best in a heavy
loam that is slightly acid (ph
5.0 to 6.5). Nutrient require-
ments are minimal; high
fertility levels produce ex-
cessive vegetative growth
and fewer flower panicles.
Applications of 8-8-8 or 10-10-
10 fertilizer in early spring at
the rate of one to two pounds


>er 100 square feet of plant-
ng bed may be beneficial to
-stablished plants, especially
hose growing on poor soils.
Wulches of pine bark or
hardwood chips are benefici-
al in retaining soil moisture


done each year, if large
specimen type blooms are
desired. However, one of the
most fascinating aspects of
the crape myrtle is its
unusual plant form. When the
form is destroyed by severe


In the very near future, the
Department of the Interior :is
scheduled to release its recom-
mendations for off-shore oil
drilling around Florida. In the
past, I have been very concern-
ed with protecting Port St. Joe
and Apalachicola Bay and initial
reports are that the protection
being recommended will be in-
adequate.
Additionally, I am concern-
ed with insuring that the
seagrass beds are fully pro-
tected.
Florida is in a difficult posi-
tion. We have some of the best
possible coastlines imaginable
and I do not want to see them
spoiled in any way. At the same
time, we have an obligation to
the nation to aid in the effort for
energy independence.
After the initial recommen-
dations are made, the Governor
will have an opportunity to res-
pond and committees of both
the House of Representatives
and Senate will review the In-
terior Department's findings. I
intend to work with all in-
terested parties to insure that
we create the best possible
circumstances for Gulf and
Franklin Counties as well as all
of the counties along the Gulf
Coast.
We need the oil but we must
not harm our priceless
coastline. Fishing and other in-
dustries must be protected.


The House of Represen-
tatives has passed the Agri-
culture Department Appropri-
ation for the coming fiscal year
and this is good news for our
farmers. As with other ap-
propriations bills, we kept


Phone 227-1133


spending limits within the
budget and farm programs, as
with other programs, will not be
able to grow.
The good news is that, if the
Senate acts in a timely manner,
farmers can be assured of con-
tinued operation of farm pro-
grams when the new fiscal year
begins in October without any
interruptions.
We must insure that the
Commodity Credit Corporation,
Farmers Home and other agen-
cies within the Department have
the -funds available for our
farmers when they need them.
This is solid evidence that
the House is serious .about
holding the line on spending
and, at the same time, insuring
that we meet our commitments
to the farmers who feed us all.
*
There have been reports in
the media lately indicating that
our men and women in the arm-
ed forces may not be receiving
the best possible health care.
Reports are that unqualified
doctors are practicing in military
hospitals and that staff support
is inadequate.
Committees of both the
House of Representatives and
Senate have begun an in-
vestigation of the allegations
and the Department of Defense
has started an internal review.
The men and women serv-
ing our nation in uniform
deserve the best and we-cannot
tolerate incompetence in the
military. I am hopeful the
reviews can be completed
quickly and we can assure
families that their persons in the
armed forces are receiving the.
best possible care.

meeting of the club.
Governor Shuster heard

Wednesday evening and en-


joyed a steak dinner with
members of the club.
Shuster spent the evening
interjecting ideas about how
other clubs handled different
situations and what other
clubs are doing .in public

. Shuster praised the club
for its long-standing, support
of Boy Scouts both on a local

As an example, Shuster
said Rotary had undertaken
a project of ridding the world
of polio by the turn of the
century. "We don't see much
polio in the United States,
anymore, but in parts of the
world, the disease still offers
a promise of dread for
thousands of parents and a
life of handicap for hundreds
of thousands of children".
The project is only one of
several of Rotary Clubs
world-wide.
