Cold Winds Come South
To Gulf County In Florida's
Panhandle with Icy Blasts
Warned by the U.S. Weather Bureau
that a hard freeze was scheduled to slam
into the Panhandle Sunday night and early
Monday morning, people prepared them-
selves for the impending onslaught of frigid
air and minimized damage.
Even so, the predicted nine degree
weather turned out to be more like 20
degrees, which is still cold enough to kill
hogs here in Northwest Florida.
While there is no official record of
temperatures being kept in the Port St. Joe
area, early morning disc jockey, Ken
Murphy, at WJBU radio said the thermome-
ter pegged 'out at 20 degrees Tuesday
morning at 6:00 a.m. That's too cold for
shorts and short sleeves but not quite cold
.enough for fur parkas.
There were very few reports of broken
pipes or frozen pumps such as was the case
in January of last year.

here in Gulf County, so several people took

S-- - Lanford Will be Port St. Joe's New Coach
PHIL LANFORD, New Head Football Coach
Gulf County's School Board put
its stamp of approval on a recom-
mendation for a new head football
coach and athletic director for Port
St. Joe High School in a special
session Thursday evening of last
Port St. Joe has been without a
head coach and athletic director since
Shaw Maddox resigned the position
one game into the football season
during September of last year. The
Port St. Joe football team completed a
highly successful year under the
leadership of interim coach Chris
Earley, an assistant principal of the
Superintendent Walter Wilder
said last Friday, that after several
weeks of interviews. Principal Edwin
Williams recommended the Board
employ Phil Lanford of Pensacola, as
the new head coach.
Lanford, 32, is a native of Panama
City, but has received his consider-
able experience as a football coach
from some very successful programs
throughout the north Florida, south
Georgia area during his compara-
tively short career. Presently, he is
the offensive coordinator of the highly
successful Escambia High School
program of Pensacola, which has
been state champions for two of the
three years Lanford has been there in

SLanford, his wife and two children
presently live at Gulf Breeze, but will
be moving to Port St. Joe between now
and the first of March, according to
Monday, paying a visit to Port St.
Joe, Lanford said it is his intention to
get as many students involved in the
athletics program of the school as
"While I am being hired as head
football coach, being athletic director
is also one of my responsibilities here
and we will be encouraging and
promoting the total athletic program
at the school. We hope to get the same
level of response to every part of our
athletic program", he said.
Lanford said it is his opinion that
athletic leaders at the school are
social leaders at the school and in the
community and should respond ac-
cordingly with a sense of responsibil-
ity and he will aim his program at
encouraging such a response.
Lanford said he felt fortunate to
be selected to head up a class
program like Port St. Joe supports. "I
have known about Port St. Joe for
years, while I was growing up in Bay
County said. I am glad to be able to
rear my family here".
OVER 40 APPLICATIONS
The School Supersivor said the
Board received more than 40 applica-
tions for the position when it became
known the system was considering a
new coach to fill the vacant position.
"Principal Williams and myself have
interviewed at length, the top ten
applicants in the group, including two
applicants from within our own
program", Wilder said. "We talked to
each of the prospects for at least six
hours each before making our selec-
tion. We both feel we recommended
the best man in the group for the
position and the School Board accept-
ed the recommendation", Wilder said.
The Superintendent also pointed
out the new coach is only the fifth head
coach to serve Port St. Joe High
School since 1947.
Williams said the new coach
would be on the job between now and
March 1. "It all depends on how soon
he can get loose from his contract
obligations at Escambia", Williams
said. "He will definitely be on hand to
begin the spring practice session", he

doesn't take the sting out of
what happened yesterday. A
friend of mine remarked
that this accident seems so
personal. Now I didn't know
a one of those people on
board that shuttle. I don't
know one family member.
As a matter of fact I didn't
even know until after the ex-
plosion if they were married
or not, had children or not.
But you know, my friend was
right - it is very personal
with all of us. Besides, it's

danger just appear? On the
other side of the coin, some
will say that it's a setback
but we must continue on as
we are "committed to the

media will do their usual ex-

"event". I don't know about
you but I think their "ex-

tensive - there is, should be

moments, thoughts and
situations for not only the
family members but for all
of us. All the insight and
rhetoric in the world is not

Walter Pennick's father. He
died when Walter and I were
in about the first or second

ago. The mule that Mr. Pen-

cross the swollen Obion
River lost its footing. The
mule made it but Mr. Pen-
nick didn't. The folks said
later that nobody in his
right mind should have tried
.to cross the Obion River with
the rain we'd had and all.
But you see, Mr. Pennick
had a sick daughter and he
was a'riding for Dr. Holmes.
'Now, Mri.Peninick&was well

funeral. I remember two
things about it. The first was

with you all the rest of your life.
Seeing something unique and record-

and some of the characters involved
in a leadership capacity during the
War and then when we corraborate or
deny some of the things the books say
happened, they are thunder-struck
that I have lived so long ago.
It doesn't seem all that long ago to
me. As a matter of fact, some of the
things which happened during the big
war are as clear in my mind as if they
happened only yesterday.
I might have forgotten I was
supposed to do something yesterday,

I DIDN'T START out to go off on a
tangent of memory lane, but to tell
you I have failed to witness something
which comes-along only once in each
normal lifetime, and it looks like I'm
going to miss it in mine.
Ever since the first of January, I
have been looking for a glimpse of
Halley's Comet. I have changed my
evening walking routes and times to

Halley's Comet has remained invis-
ible. If I have seen the comet, I didn't
realize I was looking at it.
The comet was supposed to be
most visible in our part of the world
about an hour after sunset on Monday,
On Monday, January 13, I took off
on my evening walk at just about an
hour after sunset, looking in the
southwest-where the comet was
supposed to be-to no avail. I walked
and I walked. I looked and I looked off
into the southwest.
I came in and ate supper after the
walk, then got outside and walked to
the end of the street by the Bay where
I could get a clear view of the
southwest across the Bay and I
searched the sky diligently, but still
What happened to that thing?
It you have seen the comet, I'm
envious of you. If it's still there, I
would appreciate your calling me up
and let me come where you are so I
could see it too.
I'VE SEEN A LOT of things which
happened only once in a lifetime, and
I'm glad I did.
I was sitting right there at the TV
when Henry Aaron hit his record-
breaking home run. I was even sitting
in front of the TV when Roger Maris
hit his 61st of the season, and when
Don Larson pitched the perfect game
in the World Series several years ago.
Of course, I was right along with
the rest of the nation watching when
Neil Armstrong stepped out of that
space ship onto the moon. I kinda
didn't believe it was happening, at the
time, but I saw it, anyhow.
I was around when Florida
elected its first Republican governor
in over 100 years and when Florida
voted Republican for the national
president. Of course, Watergate made
a lot of us sort of sorry we made
history at that particular point in
time, but I saw it.

SOME TIME BACK I read an article that quoted a
multi-millionaire as saying something to the effect that
it was not being there that he enjoyed, but the journey
that was fun. In other words, he was saying that he
enjoyed the struggle. The comfort of being rich was no
I look at things a little differently. There was a
scene in the movie "Giant", that I'll never forget and it
tells exactly the way I feel about the journey and
James Dean played the part of Jett Rink and Liz
Taylor played a now forgotten character. Anyway, Jett
was down on his luck and living in a shack. Liz came to
see him and he was telling her about his misfortune and
how lucky she was to be rich and have no problems.
After he had poured out his heart for a while, she looked
at him and said, "Jett, money's not everything". Jett
slowly raised his head and, with a sad look on his face,
uttered this unforgotten statement: "I know it ain't, if
you got plenty of it".
EVERYONE HAS LIVED through hard times. I'll
be the first to admit that the hard times are the easiest
to remember. And, it's easy to be comfortable and
warm and have a pocket full of money and think back
when you didn't have a dime and say, "Oh, those were
the good ole days".
WHEN MY WIFE and I were first married, we had
some wonderful times. I'll never forget the night I
came home and found her crying. When I asked her
what was wrong, she told me that we were out of food
and she was completely broke. She knew I didn't have
any money because I had borrowed five dollars from
her two days before to buy some cigarettes and a
six-pack. What a ball we had that night!!!
It wasn't too many years ago we had some more
fun. I suddenly lost my job and had no prospects for

and:charter member, Mar-

called to her heavenly home
on December 29, 1985.
Sister Marguerite had a
heart of love and compassion
for all people which was
shown by her many deeds of
kindness and to those in need.
She was a faithful wife and
p loving mother. She never
.seemed to live in the past but
had a keen and sympathetic
understanding of her sons.
She lived to see many of her
dreams come true. She help-
ed lay the foundation for our
Rebekah Lodge. Her gentle
spirit, her devotion, not only
to her family, but also to the
Community and friends
showed her key for loving to
be loved. We give thanks to
God for her life and service
We request that the Char-
ter of Melody Rebekah Lodge

of our departed Sister, that

Dr. Bates, who was con-
ducting a series of revival
meetings at the First United
Methodist Church through
Wednesday.of this week, has
spoken to several clubs and
activities during the first
part of the week.
Speaking to the Kiwanis
Club, Dr. Bates used the
subject of "Integrity".
"How do you know whether
or not you have it?" he
asked. "How do you define
it?" he queried.
Developing three points,
Dr. Bates said, first, a person
not dividedin his life and how
he leads it, has integrity. He
went on to describe integrity
as one of the most desired of
Second, integrity is deter-
mined by how a person de-

the part of the person involv-
in in developing dependable
traits and arming himself
with knowledge of how his
life should be directed is on
the way to having integrity.
Dr. Bates said, above all, a
person must be honest with
himself to develop integrity
in his scope of influence.

which a person can also be

CAN WEAR OUT
This new year we are most hopeful that deaths due
to accidental taking of medicines by small children
will be drastically reduced. The one major reason for
this hope is the increasingly widespread use of the new
S safety containers for most medicines.
But, along with this major development in
pharmaceutical packaging comes a new danger. A
false sense of security that the safety cap will
automatically stop accidents. But, after prolonged use
the closure mechanism on the safety tops can wear out.
S Be aware of this and do not reuse these containers.

The purpose of the "Re-
turning Woman" program is
to inform women of what is
available to them in educa-
tion from the two institutions.
"This program is a first for

for women to explore the idea
of going back to school and to
let them know that they can
change their lives and deve-
lop their potential," White-.
The focus of the seminar
will be to acquaint partici-
pants with the programs
available through the "2
+2" concept (two years at
GCCC and two years at FSU)
and with the way these
programs can assist them in
getting a job. These women
will also learn about support
services available to them
and ways to build support
networks among themselves.
'The point is to have these
women begin college on a
sure footing," Whitelock ad-
Part of the program will
include area employers who
will speak on local employ-
ment. Saturday's seminar
will also offer interaction
with successful women who
have graduated from both
institutions. Dr. Sandra
Rackley, associate dean of�
undergraduate studies at.
FSU in Tallahassee, will be
the keynote speaker.
According to Whitelock,
those interested in enrolling
can sign up at the seminar
for a 15-week college prepar-
atory course to be held
February 17 through May 26.
Course content will include
decision making, self-con-

mostly the well-to-do who

other parts of the world, it is
still killing children like

There is a flip side to this
good news; however, countries
such as Mexico, which invested
heavily when oil prices were
high, will have a more difficult
time repaying foreign loans.
Many of these loans are' to
American banks and-there is the

are necessary to prolong the.

Today children born with

percent chance of living into
their early twenties. The
money raised in the White

search to less than 1 percent
of the DNA, the substance in
the body that carries all
genes. Now scientists can
concentrate on this small

scientists believe that the

Believe it or not, tablets and cap-
sules should be swallowed differently.
Since a capsule is lighter than
water, it floats. If you tilt your head
backward while taking a capsule, it
will float to the front of your mouth,
where it will be difficult to swallow.
For successful capsule swallowing,
place the capsule in your mouth with
a small amount of water and tilt your
head or upper body forward. The cap-
sule will then float toward the throat,
where it can be swallowed with ease.
To swallow a tablet, follow the
same procedure, but tilt your head
Do not mix any capsule with milk,
honey or stewed prunes because the
time release action may be altered.
Do not crush capsules because you
may lose the benefits of the drugs,
and they may even become dangerous.
To benefit from any prescribed
medications, keep different
medicines in separate containers,
and be su *o take them at the
appropriatL s. Patients should
take all medications exactly as pre-
scribed by their physician.
Often older adults may take several
different prescriptions at the same
time. Be sure to alert your physician of
.this fact, since different medications
can act adversely if mixed.
