Board Approves of Drug Testing



Questions of Legality and Cost will be Studied Before Adoption


Gulf County's Commission
will beckon its county Health
Doctor, Dr. John Crockett to
its first meeting in January
to answer questions about
testing for drug use among
its employees and them-
selves.
Commissioner Nathan Pe-
ters suggested the Commis-
sioners and the attorney

Commission was through

Chairman Billy Branch
turned his chair over to
vice-chairman A.B. Traylor
and made a substitute motion
to require all county em-
ployees be tested, including
the County Commissioners
and their attorney. "If we're
going to do it, let's do it

Christmas Parade Well Received by


By common acclaim, Port St. Joe's
Christmas parade Saturday afternoon was
attended by the largest crowd in a number
of years, who witnessed the longest Yule
parade ever presented here in the port city.
According to Bob Bearden, parade
chairman for the Port St. Joe Merchants
Association, the parade had the most entries
of any in the immediate past. "I had a form,
which has been used in the past to align the
entries in order for the parade, and I had to
go back twice and enlarge the form to
accommodate the number of entries which
signed up to enter".
The parade, presented in the afternoon
for the first time, took some 45 minutes to
wind its way up Reid Avenue and back south
.on Williams Avenue to its point of beginning


on Fifth Street.
"The merchants were pleased at the
response of people in the Port St. Joe area
who came to see the parade this year",
Wayne Taylor, president of the Merchants
Association said. "It's very gratifying to go
to all that work and expense and see the
people turn out in an appreciative response"
he added.
The Merchants Association has been
toying with the parade time for the past
three years to try and arrive at a time which
is most suitable for the most people. This
year's trial of a 3:00 p.m., afternoon starting
time will probably be adopted Friday of next
week at the regular meeting of the
Association as their permanent parade time
for the future. The parade has always been


held on the first Saturday in December.
In addition to the floats depicting the
Christmas season, decorated cars, horses
and marching groups this year, the huge
crowd attending was entertained by the
antics of the Keystone Kops, who spent their
time in the parade chasing and trying to
subdue an "escapee" from their comic
paddy wagon. In addition, the crowd were
entertained by the expertise and trick riding
of the Wandering Wheels, a motorcycle
group of Shriners who were precision all the
way.
FLOAT WINNERS
A panel of five judges selected the three
float winners, in the non-commercial
category to receive the cash prizes offered
by the Merchants Association. The judges

ed and what the Commission
could expect from the tests.
Sheriff Al Harrison, who
also favored .the testing pro-
gram said his people are
already being tested. "We
conduct the tests at random.
They don't know when
they're coming so they can't
get ready for them ahead of
time. I decide when the tests
are to be made". -
RECEIVE PLAN
Larry McGlothin, an en-
gineer with Baskerville-Don-
ovan Engineers, presented
the county Commission with
a completed document of its
first phase comprehensive
plan.
The document was sched-
uled by the State of Florida to
be completed by Decembet
30. The report included
maps, plans and proposals on
land use, recreation areas;
sewage handling and inter:
government operations.
McGlothin said his firm is
now ready to get into the
second phase of the state
mandated plan, outlining fu-
ture land use projections
throughout the county.
REPLY TO SUIT
The Commission instruct-
ed their attorney, William
J. Rish, to reply to a suit filed
last month against the board,
that they did not claim any
jurisdiction over the Dead
Lakes Dam or its drawdown
facility. "We were merely
returning the gates to their
last stated4fficial position,
as we were asked to do. We
have no jurisdiction to move
them further", chairman Bil-

asking for help from citizens of the community in helping '
to solve the burglaries of two homes in the south Long
Avenue area.
According to Chief Maige, two homes have been
broken into and articles and money taken. "In both
instances, the owners were at home at the time, outside
working in the yard when the burglaries occurred", Maige
said. "They didn't suspect they were being robbed until .
they discovered several items and money missing when
they re-entered their homes."
Wednesday of last week, the home of Mrs. Euphemia
Roberts on 20th Street, was entered some time between
4:00 and 5:00 p.m., while Mrs. Roberts was outside
working in her yard. A small quantity of cash and several
pieces of jewelry were removed from the home.
Later the same day, between 4:30 and 5:30, the home of
Mrs. Margaret Nichols at 601 16th Street was entered while
Mrs. Nichols was outside in her yard and an amount of
cash and a wedding ring were taken.
Chief Maige said the thief apparently cruises around to
find a woman working in her yard and then slips in her
house. "We're looking for leads", Maige said. "If anyone
saw somebody in the vicinity of the homes or in the area
who didn't belong there, we'd appreciate it if they would
call the Police Department. All calls will remain.
confidential", he said.
Earlier last week, John Zelner of Pittsburgh, was
arrested in Adel, Iowa, after taking a car from the St. Joe
Paper Company Chato and driving it to Adel. Zelner also
had a stolen credit card in his possession.
"Zelner had just been released from prison and was
working in the Eastpoint area for a short while. He had
been serving a term for burglary. On a day off, he came to
Port St. Joe, took the car from the Chato and took off",
Maige said.



Only 8 Days Left to

Write Letter to Santa
Only eight more days remain to get those letters to
Santa Claus into The Star for printing in the local
newspaper's annual Christmas edition, which will be
placed in the mail Monday evening, December 22.
The Star will print every letter it receives,
addressed to Santa Claus and then forward the letters
on to Santa Claus in time for him to get them before his
annual Christmas Eve journey.
The letters must be in The Star office by Friday
afternoon of next week. There is no charge for the
letters to appear in the paper, but we must have them in
time to set them up in type in preparation for printing.
Either bring the letters by The Star office, or mail
it to P.O. Box 308, Port St. Joe, Florida 32546.

Jim Hardie, an outdoors col-
umnist for the Miami Herald was
lamenting in his column recently of
-. :the fact it looks as if Dr. Elton
Gissendaner will lose his job with
the Department of Natural Re-
Ssources. Hardie identified Dr.
Gissendaner as the best friend the
recreational fisherman ever had.
On the other hand, he has also
been tagged as opposed to the
commercial netting of fish in
Florida waters. It isn't hard to see
that if he is successful in seeing this
little gem accomplished, it would
put thousands of people in the state
of Florida out of work; including at
least half the men in Apalachicola,
who depend on commercial fishing
in Apalachicola Bay and adjoining
' waters to put bread on their table.
It wouldn't do the labor situa-
tion here in Port St. Joe any good,
either. By far the majority of our
Commercial fishermen depend on
the net fishing industry for their
7-i .livelihood. And, of course, it would
"--put Gulf County's second largest
employer out of business, which
may have been the main thrust of
the idea in the first place.
If net fishing by commercial
boats were outlawed in Florida, it
would be just a few days, we
imagine, before Raffield's Fisher-
-a ies would shut off the power to its
big freezer houses, pull its boats up
on the hill, lock the doors to its
"= warehouses and handling houses,
turn .out the lights in their boat
building and repair business, and
move to another state.

been on the books and ignored for
30 years, suddenly and initially
applied to him. He has had no
public hearing with the DNR head,
concerning his problems with a
proposed set-back line of building
requirements, only to have all the
arguments-even reasonable ideas
-be completely ignored and not
even considered.
Mr. Gissendaner fearing his

concern of ours. From what we
have observed, he is working more
for himself than he is for the people
of Florida anyhow. Let him pay
himself.
And, by the way, if he is

their trade, can the abolition of cast

But, neither did Donahue take

They'll all ask me what I want for
Christmas and I'll rack my brain, but

night want which I don't already
have. That isn't to say I have
everything a man could want, but it's
to say that if I had anything else, it


would just be superfluous possessions.
I have almost anything a person needs
and consider myself extremely for-
tunate for being in that position.
It could be that I'm beginning to
get old.
Here I don't have a lot of wants or
desires. I'm comfortable; not too hot
or too warm when the weather gets to
extremes. I have adequate clothing. I
have a warm home. I have a car
which runs good and doesn't leave me
stranded out on the road somewhere. I
have a good boat and motor I never
get to use and a shotgun which hasn't
been fired but once this year.
What more could a man want?

getting close to that second childhood
they talk about senior citizens being
possessed with. Christmas is begin-
ning to take on that wide-eyed
expectant condition with me again. As
I said, it's only two weeks to the big
"C" and I'm already beginning to
think about gift shopping. Christmas
Eve is still nearly two weeks off and
I'm beginning to think about what I
will buy for whom.


I'LL CLOSE OUT with this little
bit of reminiscing and philosophy.
/I think the kids of today don't have
as much to enjoy at Christmas as we
did way back there on the tail end of
the depression.
I can remember that it was
almost automatic on Christmas mor-
ning. There were four of us boys in the
world back there in those cold
Oklahoma Christmas mornings. We
would get a red wagon for all of us to
play with.
There was plenty of fruit, nuts and
Christmas candy and a fat hen for
dinner. We were among the fortunate
ones.
The kids of today can get a red,
blue, yellow or brown wagon almost
any day of the week. Their Christmas
morning "surprise" is almost an
anti-climax for the rest of the year, so
far as gift giving goes.
Kids today don't get the spiritual
values of Christmas as much as we
did a long time ago, either. Because
their parents don't indulge in spiritual
matters as much as they did then.
I think we enjoyed Christmas
more.

Crossing the creek was a
pretty big decision because it
meant 'that we were on
somebody else's land. We'd
think about it for ten or
fifteen seconds and then we
headed for the swinging
bridge. Mr. Moore always
had better looking Christmas
trees than we did. Leon
hurried across the foot
bridge and when David and I
got out to the middle, he
started swinging the whole
thing. He near about throw'd
us into Sugar Creek. He was
working so hard to scare us
that he dropped the ax. We
weren't wet but the ax sure
was.
As we gathered on the
bridge looking down at the ax
covered by about three feet
of water I looked over at
Leon "What are we going to
do now. Tarzan?"
David. seeing that Leon
was truly frightened tried to
ease his mind a little "Well,
we worft have to worry about
cutting a tree down 'cause
when Dad finds out about his
ax he'll be so mad he
probably will go out and
gnaw down a couple."
Leon didn't take his eyes
off of that ax. "We've got to
get it out."
As we slid down the bpnk I
suddenly recalled thai old
Lone Ranger and Tonto joke
"What do you mean we,
Paleface?"
The creek was always
clear in the winter time we
could see the ax we just
couldn't reach it. The creek
was also very cold in the
winter time. "Somebody's
got to go in after it." Leon
said with more than just a
little panic in his voice.
Poor Dave happened to be
the youngest. When he came
out of that water his chill
bumps had chill bumps. We
rubbed him down as best we
could with dry leaves but he
was still shaking as we
helped him get his clothes
back on. We cut down the
first thing that looked like a
Christmas tree and lit a
shuck for the house. Mother
put the "bad side" next to the
wall andhid the other "gaps"
with stringsof.pppcorn. Mom
could make a rake. handle
look like a real Christmas
tree. If she noticed that
David's hair was wet when
we came in she never let on.
Boy howdy, I tell you what -
Christmas tree hunting is
about the most fun thing a
boy can do.
For the past couple of
years Josh, Jess and I have
gone out to Buddy Floore's
place a'looking for a Christ-
mas tree. It usually takes
about two tanks of gas and a
whole day. We want to find
"just the right tree." Of
course last year Josh fell into
the ant bed and we were half
an hour beating those ants off
of him. Jess fell out of a tree
that he shouldn't a'been
climbing in the first place.

Time Out Rooms
IT WAS JUST THIS week that I found out what
"Time-Out" rooms are.
When I first heard it discussed, I thought it was a
room where faculty members went to relax and have
cocktails when things reached a hectic state. Was I
ever wrong!
If you are not familiar with Time-Out rooms let me
explain what I know about them and then you may
understand. Or, you may be like me and not
understand.

A TIME-OUT ROOM is a special room, located in
junior high and or high schools, where children who
become uncontrollable are taken. These rooms, as I
understand it, are akin to padded cells in that they are
designed to prevent the student who is taken there from
hurting himself or herself in the event they become so
uncontrollable that they try to run through the wall or
jump through a window.
There are, I understand, a couple of parents in our
area that are opposed to these rooms because their
little darlings were taken there and locked inside. One,
I heard, was so out of control that they had to nail the
door shut. I really don't know what these two darlings
did but I think they tried to hang a science teacher from
a basketball goal. Their parents, of course, knew it was
nothing serious.

THERE ARE A LOT of things I would do before I
would teach school today. As a matter of fact, I can't
think of anything I wouldn't do, except maybe be a
policeman. Both professions are becoming extremely
hazardous occupations.
There were Time-Out rooms when I was in school.
They were called the principal's office. We didn't want
anyone locking us in there, either, and it only took one
trip for us to decide that we didn't want to go back. It
was demeaning as the dickens! Everyone in the whole
school could hear you getting your rear whacked.
Those were the days before teachers were scared of
students and parents didn't rush down like a flock of
heathens to protect their little spoiled brats.

IT'S HARD FOR ME to imagine a student in high
school that is "uncontrollable." Oh, I'm sure there are
a few who slip into school that should be in mental
institutions or prison, but, for the most part, I can't see
enough of them being in public schools that it would
require a special room to detain them. If there are that
many and they are that uncontrollable, then I think we
should have policemen there to arrest them and take
them directly to jail.. .don't stop at Boardwalk and no
collecting $200 for passing "GO". Jails are made for
this type person.
Teachers are not paid to contend with this type
individual. Policemen and jails are. That's where they
should be.

IF I WERE-AN educator and we had to have a
student put in a Time-Out room and that student's
parent (s) came storming,in, as I understand two did
'; .recfitly;,flink I would just,ptUhea min with their little
brats ahndf et them fight'it out. I would then call,
"TIME-OUT" to the whole school and let them watch.

NO SIR, I could never be'a school teacher!

Commission (Continued


the suit was seeking a
declaratory judgment
against the county and Com-
missioner A.B. Traylor, who
had instructed the Road
Department to re-open the
gates after vandals had cut
locks and allowed them to
close. The gates had been
closed during the spring
when a man drowned at the
site, and Sheriff Al Harrlson
had ordered them closed to
protect his underwater di-
vers who were searching for
the drowning victim. Harri-
son had enlisted the county to
re-open the gates as he found
them and they were later
closed again by parties un-
known, who cut the locks at
night.
Harrison said the gates had
been locked open for some
time. "The locks were so
rusted you couldn't get a key
in them. That's why we had
to cut them to close the
gates". Both Sheriff Harri-
son and the County Commis-
sion contend that the last
official act of the Dead Lakes
Water Management District
was to have the gates opened
and locked in an open posi-
tion. The Commission says
they cannot officially act now
because there are only three
members remaining on their
Board.
Rish advised the Commis-
sion he could probably get
the suit quieted on a techni-
cality since the DLWMD
members were not included
in the title. "They are the
only ones who can legally say
they (the gates) should be
open or shut".
Rish was instructed not to
act on the suit, but to inform
the attorneys involved in the
filing that the Commission

realized they had no jurisdic-
tion in the matter. So far as
they were concerned, they
were merely fulfilling a
request to place the gates
back like they originally
were. They would initiate no
actions on their own.
The Commission agreed to
all parts of the suit except the
last paragraph which would
require them to close the
gates again. The Commission
said they would not do that

" Health
H. influenzae is a leading
cause of serious systemic
bacterial disease in the Uni
ted, States. It -is the mos
common cause of bacteria
meningitis, accounting for an
estimated 12,000 cases an
nually, primarily amonj
children under five years o
age. The mortality rate is
five percent, and neurologic
sequelae are observed in as
many as 25 to 35 percent o
survivors. Virtually all cases
of H. influenzae meningitis
among children are caused
by strains of type b (Hib)
although this capsular type
reprpresents only one of the si
types known for this species
In addition to bacterial me
ningitis, Hib is responsible
for other invasive diseases
including epiglottitis, sepsis
cellulitis, septic arthritis
osteomyelitis, pericarditis
and pneumonia. Nontypeablh
strains of H. influenzae com-
: only colonize the human
respiratory tract and are a
major cause of otitis media
and respiratory mucosal in
fection but rarely result ir
; bacteremic disease.
Several population base
studies of invasive Hib dis

last 10 years have provided

OBITUARIES

SWilliam E.

William E. Whaley, 75
passed away Monday morn-
ing at his residence following
an extended illness. He was
resident of Port St. Joe for
the past 48 years, and was
supervisor at the St. Jo

retirement in 1976. He was
veteran of World War II anm
; was an active member of St

He is survived by his wife,

g disease among children un-
c der five years of age, the
- major age group at risk.
t These studies have demon-
1 strated attack rates of me-
n ningitis ranging from 51
- cases per 100,000 children to
g 77 per 100,000 per year and
f attack rates of other invasive
s Hib disease varying from 24
c per 100,000 to 75 per 100,000
s per year. Thus, in the United
f States, approximately one of
s every 1,000 children under
s five years of age develops
d systemic Hib disease at some


time during the first five
years of life is about one in
200. Approximately 35 40
percent of Hib disease occurs
among children 18 months of
age or older and 25 percent
occurs above 24 months of
age.
Incidence rates of Hib
disease are increased in
certain high risk groups,
such as Native Americans,
blacks, individuals of lower
socioeconomic status, and
patients with sickle cell
disease, Hodgkin's disease,


and antibody deficiency syn-
dromes. Recent studies also
have suggested that the rist
of acquiring primary Hib
disease for children under 5
years of age appears to be
greater for those who attend
day care facilities than those
who do not.
The Hib vaccine is now
being offered at the Gulf
County Health Department
for $8.00.

Basket
Port St. Joe High School
basketball coach, Jim Belin
Said high school basketball
will have a few rules changes
in the game this year.
"Before it's all over, we'll
probably go to the time clock
shooting and introduce the
three point play", he predict-
ed. Belin told the Kiwanis
Club of the new rules and of
the prospects for the basket-
ball season here in Port St.
S. Joe this year.
"We've been practicing
only eight days and like the
football team, we're rebuild-
oAng this year, too ,We have
only two players on the
10-man team who have play-
E ed varsity basketball be-
S fore." The coach went on to


Advent
Methodist minister, Rev.
Ennis Sellers, spoke to the
Rotary Club Thursday, giv-
ing them a short but succinct
description of the beginning
and the meaning of Advent.
Rev. Sellers explained that
Advent began in the Fourth

And old Santa
was there.


)all Rules Are Changing


sa, the program looks good
for the next couple of years,
however. "We have mostly
players on our team who
hustle, who are good students
as well as budding athletes
and who understand what
you are trying to get across
to them. They're small, but
they are aggressive. They
play with a lot of intensity."
Coach Belin said the team
had no. depth this year. He
pointed out it would take
time to develop the players,
but he predicted a good, solid
team before the season was
over. .' .
"Since athletic director
Phil Lanford came to the
school, we have adopted a


complete new philosophy
about athletics", Belin said.
We're out to win, of course,
but mainly we are gearing
our programs up to make
men out of our boys. The
main purpose of the athletic
program is to help our young
men develop into committed
young men. It's working and
I'm excited about the future
of our athletic program here
in Port St. Joe", Belin
reported.
"We're trying to teach
commitment, and if we're
successful, it will make fine
adults out of our young
people, who will not only get
ahead in the world, but will
make their employers good


workers".
The club acted on two
suggestions brought to them
by members. They agreed to
fund their scholarship grant
at Gulf Coast Community
College so the fund would
provide some student with a
scholarship this year. In
order to do so, the club had to
deposit an extra $550 in the
fund this year.
In another item of busi-
ness, the club unanimously
agreed to prepare a resolu-
tion supporting the President
of the United States, and mail
a copy to the Florida delega:
tion in Congress. The resolu-
tion will be prepared for
adoption next week.

AFFECT YOUR HEALTH?
Some people just breeze through the winter V

One way to increase your chances of a

physical check-up around this time of year. Then,
if your physician finds you are not quite up to par,
he might suggest or prescribe a good multiple

yourself the extra edge this winter. Our winter

After jumping off to a
convincing first game win
over the Bay High Tornadoes
last week, Port St. Joe's
Sharks have been hooked
twice by opponents in as
many succeeding games.
Friday, in an afternoon
game with the Florida High
Demons, the Sharks were
stung by a 58-47 defeat.
Scoring only half the points
they scored against Bay
High, they suffered their first
loss of the young season.
Darin Callaway paced the
Sharks with 17 points and
Curtis Beard, who had scored
33 points against Bay High,
was held to a modest 14
points against the Demons.
None of the other Sharks
scored in double figures.
In the first period, the two
teams were neck and neck in
the scoring department, with
Florida High ending with a
one point margin. As the

Nickson, Litasha Daniels, Pam Julius and Felisha

second period progressed,
the Demons began to widen
their margin and had a five
point lead at half time.
The Sharks made a run for
it during the third period,
putting 17 points on the board
while the Demons answered
with only 15. The Demons
salted the win in the final
stanza, thumping the Sharks
with an eight point bulge.
William Lester paced the
Demons with his 24 points.
Score by quarters:
Port St. Joe 7 9 17 14-47
Florida High 8 13 15 22-58
"It was a case of us not
being able to buy a basket
and everything they threw up
went through the net", coach
Jim Belin said. "We had a
terribly cold first half which
cost us the game", he pointed
out.

.Tuesday night, the Sharks
suffered their second loss in a
row, as the Blountstown
Tigers roared to a 69-52 win
over the Sharks in the Tiger
gym.
The first half of the game
ended in a 24-24 tie as both
teams battled on even terms
up to the rest point. The
Tigers came out in typical
Tiger fashion in the third
period and out-scored the
Sharks 17-8. The Tigers again
came out on the long end of
the scoring in a wild fourth
period, which saw both
teams put an accumulation
of points on the board to
equal the production of both
teams in the entire first half.
It was the second half play
of the Tigers which threw the
Sharks for a loss.
Curtis Beard was back on
track Tuesday, scoring 33
points for the second time in
three games, to lead the
individual scoring on both
teams. Marvin Hamilton was
the only other Shark scoring
in double figures, with 10
points.
James Bush led the Tigers

Tigers also scored in double
figures as the Blountstown

Nonchalant Age?...


If no one else has thought of
it yet, maybe this is the time
to declare the latter part of
the 1980's the '"Age of the
Nonchalant."
To be nonchalant a person
must appear to be uncon-
cerned or indifferent. This is
an attitude that the well-fed
and self-assured can afford.,
The attitude has a strong
appeal to our generation.
Being nonchalant is helpful
in certain social situations. It
gets us through those mo-
ments when we feel snubbed
or scandalized. It makes us
look as though we are good
sports in difficult situations.
Being nonchalant has its
drawbacks too. A nonchalant
attitude may be the symptom
of a deep spiritual problem.
The word comes to us from
the Latin non- ("not") and
calere ("to be hot"). In
other words, a nonchalant
person is "lukewarm."
Some world religions (not-
ably the fatalistic eastern
religions like Hinduism,
Buddhism, etc.) cultivate


nonchalance as an attitude
greatly to be desired. For
this reason their adherants
can philosophically look on
human suffering and not be


families have watched their
inquisitive children drift off
into the limbo of Transitional
Meditation, Zin, Yoga, etc.
And, of course we read of

particularly moved to alter
the situation. Their religions
teach them that helping a
sufferer in this life may keep'
him from paying fct a
mislead former life. Helping
a sufferer would hinder his
progress in some future life.
Such philosophies and atti-
tudes make it possible for the
privileged classes in India to
look without compassion on
the starving poor on their
doorsteps.
Importing these religions
has led to the destruction of
many lives in our .own
country. Many thousands of


child abuse and needless
deaths in the Ashrams in
Oregon, California, Pennsyl-
vania, West Virginia and
elsewhere.
How much of an effect has
the philosophy of noncha-
lance had on Americans? Or
to put it more personally,
how much has this attitude
affected you and me?
Christians are called to be
compassionate and loving
people. We all agree to that.
But we don't always live
compassionate lives.

Agent Gives Tips on Selecting


Freshest Live Christmas Tree


By Roy Lee Carter
Extension Agent
If you haven't been to a
Christmas tree lot vet, be
sure to take enough cash
when you go. Like nearly
everything else, tree prices
have been escalating in re-
cent years.
It's important to choose a
fresh Christmas tree, one
with good color that holds its
needles well. Florida's warm
weather causes many Christ-
mas trees to wilt quickly and
drop their needles. How well
a tree will survive depends
on the type of tree and when
it was cut. Scotch pines,
Virginia pines and Douglas
firs hold their needles quite
well. Spruces tend to lose
needles more quickly.
Buying a fresh tree is
probably the most important
piece of advice we can offer.
My information on when and
how to select a fresh tree was
provided by Extension Urban
Horticulture Specialist Dr.
Robert Black, of the Univer-
sity of Florida's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences.
There are a couple of
reasons why a fresh tree is
important. Obviously, a fresh
tree will last, and look better
longer. Old, dried-out trees
are unattractive. Also,
they're fire hazards as well.


Since most of us include
electric lights in our tree
decorations, it's easy to see
that dried out trees become
very dangerous.
There are several ways to
determine a tree's freshness.
Bend the needles, if the tree


is fresh, the needles will be
supple and springy. If the
tree is old, the needles will
snap and break off. Bounce
the tree stump on the ground
to see how many needles fall.
It's normal for a fresh tree to
drop a few needles. But, if
bouncing produces a shower
of needles, put the tree back
and select another. Before
buying also feel the bottom of
the stump. The sap of a fresh
tree is sticky. On an old
stump, it's hard and caked. A
fresh tree also should have a


pleasant fragrance, one that
will last throughout the
Christmas season.
The tree you select should
have a good green color, be
full and bushy, and have
sturdy branches. Strength of
branches is more a matter of
the tree type than the tree's
age or condition. White pine
and red cedar trees are well
suited to the Florida climate.
Unfortunately, they both
have fairly weak branches
that won't hold decorations
very well. Firs, spruces, and
scotch pines, on the other
hand usually have very firm
branches.
Since firs, spruce and
scotch pine don't grow
naturally in Florida, and
they have to be imported
from Northern states, they


usually cost a lot more than
either white pines or red
cedars. In addition to lower
prices, Florida grown trees
have another advantage, if
you can get living trees
balled in burlap, they can be
added to the landscape after
the Christmas season is over.

Start your Christmas tree
shopping early, so you will
have the best selection of the
healthiest trees available in
your area. Remember to look
for a tree with good color, a
sticky, sappy stump, and
sturdy branches which hold
their needles well. Once you
find the tree you want, one
that's fresh, attractive, and
the right size for your home
it's important to care for it
properly, so that it will last
throughout the holidays.

Florida's 1986-87 woodcock
season runs from December
13 through January 26.
Although woodcocks or
"timberdoodles" are minor
game birds in Florida, they
make fine table fare for
sportsmen who can find
them.
Woodcocks are found in
lowland hammocks and
other poorly drained areas
where they feed on worms
and grubs. They look and
taste much like snipes, but
. they are more reddish brown
in color, have a much stock-
ier build and very large eyes.
The daily bag limit for
woodcocks is three and legal
shooting hours are one half
hour before sunrise to sunset.
The birds tend to favor
cooler climates, but northern
and central Florida attract
enough of the birds during
winter months to provide fair
opportunities for hunters.
The most effective way to
hunt woodcocks is with a well
trained dog. Many of the
birds are taken incidentally
by quail hunters.
Since woodcocks are mi-
gratory birds, hunters must
have their shotguns plugged
to a three shell capacity
before taking the birds. It is
not legal to hunt woodcocks
with rifles, pistols, cross-
bows, or shotguns larger
than 10 gauge.
For additional inform-
ation, sportsmen can contact


the Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission's regional
offices, listed on the inside
front covers of most tele-
phone directories.

to become the AFA's world champion.

The Farmers Home Admi-
nistration (FmHA) has an-
nounced a reduced interest
rate for farmers seeking
emergency loans as a result
of drought, flooding and
other weather-related crop
loss.

Effective immediately.
qualifying farmers who file
for such loans will receive
an interest rate of 4.5 per-
cent, according to Jim Cher-
ry. FmHA State Director for
Florida. This replaces the
regular two-tiered rate of 5
percent for loan amounts up
to $100,000 and 8 percent for
the remainder up to the
maximum of $500,000, appli-
cable to prior loans.
"This will benefit the farm-
er in two ways," commented
Cherry. "In addition to re-
ducing the over-all cost of
repaying the loan, it will
make it easier for the appli-
cant to qualify for the loan in
the first place under our cash
flow requirements."
This interest rate reduction
is in response to a provision
enacted by Congress just
prior to its adjournment in
October. The reductions re-
presented by the uniform
rate place interest on emer-
gency loans on a par with
interest charged on direct
farm operating loans made
to "limited resource" bor-
rowers.
Cherry said the emergency
loan funds can be used for
restoration or replacement of
damaged property, payment
of production costs for the
disaster year or the next
year, payment of delinquent
debt installments, living ex-
penses, purchase of machin-
ery, equipment and foun-
dation livestock, reorganiza-
tion of a farming system, and

He added that the appli-
cant must meet regular
eligibility requirements: be
an established family farm
operator, be a citizen or legal
resident alien, have ability to
repay the loan. be located in
a designated county, have
suffered a minimum 30 per-
cent crop loss. be unable to
obtain suitable credit else-
where, and be able to provide
adequate security.
Applicants may obtain fur-
ther information and apply
for an emergency' loan
