Marine Patrol with violation of a
30-year-old law which had never
been enforced until it was enforced
against the Raffields. Both state
and federal charges were filed in
the matter, but the federal charges
were dropped the first of Decem-
ber.
The situation also prompted
Gene Raffield, manager of the
firm, to tender his resignation from
the state's Marine Fisheries Com-
mission. Raffield was the only
member of the commercial fishing
community on the Commission.
Raffield countered that his

stories of 1986. You may disagree
with, hebselecnJgg.hut you will
probably. agree that all were
important' bits' of, news for Gulf
County during the past year.
The stories listed here, as the
most important of the year are not
necessarily listed in order of
importance. What was most impor-
tant to some, took a lower rating
than some others to some people.
For instance, the matter of seven
people meeting death on our
highways during the year, is of'
primary importance to the families
involved in the seven tragedies.
The Star's selection of the 10
most important stories in Gulf
County is as follows:
VOTING CHANGE
There is probably no argument
but what the change to single
member voting districts in the
county and School Board elections,
was the top story of the year.
Gulf County changed to the new
voting system which is presently
sweeping the state of Florida, as
effortlessly as any county in the
state. About the only trauma with
the switch of voting methods here
in Gulf County, was coming to an
agreement on the district bound-
aries by the county and the School
Board, trying to reach agreement.
The only other major problem
with the switch was public dismay
over having to pay $20,000 in
attorney fees for a legal matter
which was not contested. That
matter smarted at the time and is
still a sore subject with a lot of
people.
RAFFIELD STORY
Whether or not it was second in
importance, the story of Raffield
Fisheries problems with Dr. Elton
Gissendaner and the Department of
Natural Resources, the story or
stories probably generated more
local interest than any thing which
happened in Gulf County in 1986.
The Raffield company was

DNR in the matter.
.-- PLAGUE OF ROBBERIES
Strong-arm robberies, a rarity
in Gulf County, were almost-
commonplace here in the Port St.
Joe area for a while, and stirred the
interest of the people and generated
protective measures by operators
of businesses which stayed open at


County Canal and at White City
across the Intercoastal Canal.
Bridge construction is expected to
be going on here in Gulf County
until the turn of the decade.
The Overstreet project will put
Florida's only floating draw bridge
out of action.
WARD RIDGE VOTES
Ward Ridge, one of three
incorporated communities in Gulf
County voted to ask the City of Port
St. Joe to annex them to the larger
city. The movement had been in the
works for more than a year, but the
small community decided to go
ahead with their referendum in
October of 1986.
What made the routine oper-
tion turn into a newsy situation was
the matter of the wrong description
of the Ward Ridge boundaries being
placed in the legal advertising
calling for the Ward Ridge referen-
dum. As a result, the voters
approved annexation of only about
half the area of the town to Port St.
Joe.
The whole thing will be done
over again early in 1987.
ROCKET FUEL PLANT
And then there was the story
about the rocket fuel plant going to
locate at Overstreet, if it could
purchase some 11,000 acres.
This story turned out- to be
mostly rumor at the time, but has
since received some credibility
when United Technologies Corpor-
ation of California formally an-
nounced it had taken an option on
11,000 acres of property in Over-
street area for an installation,
should it receive a government
contract it was bidding on.
DROUGHT CUTS OFF RIVER
Drought lowered river water
levels-ja-1986to-the lowest level-4n --'
modern history, with minus read-
Sings recorded for almost a month
on the official river gauge. The low
water mark was reached in August,
with a sprinkling of the water wars
of the old West beginning to be
experienced here.

night.
Five robberies were reported
in a little more than a month,
before police finally arrested Willie
Riley, Jr., and charged him with
part of the crimes.
Riley was resisted in an
attempt to rob Pate's Service
Station by night operator, Hozie
Owens, who was knifed in the side
in the scuffle and spent several
months in the hospital as a result of
the injury.
Riley was never formally
charged with all the robberies, but
they stopped after his arrest.
BRIDGES BUILDING
It has been a long time since
Gulf County has received an
important construction contract
from the Department of Transpor-
tation, but in 1986, actual work was
started on one major high-rise
bridge construction job and prelim-
inary work was started on two
others here in the county.
Work got underway on replac-
ing the ancient floating bridge at
Overstreet with one of the high
rises and preliminary work has
started on similar structures at
Highland View over the Gulf


The drought stopped barge
shipment on the Apalachicola be-
cause there was not enough water
in the river to float a loaded barge.
Rains which started in Novem-
ber have alleviated the condition
and shipping has resumed.
SYLVACHEM PURCHASED
Sylvachem, a tall oil manufac-
turing plant here in Port St. Joe,
was sold during the year to Arizona
Chemical Company, which is in the
same business in Panama City and
at other points in the south.
The local firm saw some
shake-up in supervisory personnel
during the transition period, but
has since settled down to a smooth
operation.
ELECTIONS
After the creation of single
member districts here in Gulf
County, there were practically no
surprises in elections in Gulf
County this year.
The only different thing about
the elections this year was that Gulf
County elected its first black man
ever to the County Commission.
That one matter made history for

Wewa Man

Shot In

Accident
It was a quiet Christmas
week end for Gulf County, as
injuries from accidents go,
but for one man, Q. P. Baxley
of the Wewahitchka area, it
was not so uneventful.
Baxley was deer hunting
with a friend and two of his
sons Christmas Eve, when he
was accidentally shot in the
stomach with two buckshot
pellets from a shotgun.
According to Sheriff Al
Harrison,' the party was
hunting west of the Kent
Cemetery area when Baxley
became.separated from the
others in his party, who were
stationed along a road in the
area. Baxley worked his way
into the woods and wound up
directly in front of the other
hunters in his party. A deer
jumped and ran between
Baxley and his party and
they all took a shot at the
fleeing animal, not knowing
Baxley was in their line of
fire.
Two of the pellets struck
Baxley, who was taken to a
Panama City hospital, where
the pellets were removed by
surgery.

This pick-up truck was damaged in a
two vehicle crash last Monday on Highway


71, two miles north of Port St. Joe. A dump
truck hit the pick-up.


A pick-up truck and a dump truck
collided on Highway 71, about two miles
north of Port St. Joe Monday, resulting in
minor injuries to a passenger in the pick-up.
The accident was not a part of the
holiday accident watch, because it happen-
ed before the watch started at noon
Wednesday.
Dennis George Rea of Blountstown was
driving the dump truck, which was headed


south on 71 and attempting to pass the
pick-up, driven by James Roland Lee of
Cottondale. As the dump started to pass, Lee
started making a left turn, causing the two:
vehicles to collide. Robert King, a passenger
in the Lee vehicle, of Graceville, was
slightly injured in the crash.
Lee was charged with violation of the
right-of-way by turning into the path of a
passing vehicle.


The year 1986 was a pretty good
year for Gulf County amd Port St.
Joe according to news stories
printed in The Star over the past
year. Making the selection of what
was determined to be the top ten
news stories of the year resulted in
half the stories selected, at ran-
dom; being of a positive nature and
five being of a negative nature. Of
course, one of the "positive" stories'
turned out to be no story at all, but
it may be in the future, even though
it was merely wishful thinking at
the time it was being recorded as a
news story.

Christmas Brings



" Out Bad and Good


It's an unfortunate thing that,
as Christmas brings out the best in
most folks, it also brings out the
worst in some people as well.
It was with dismay here in Port
St. Joe that we were greeted on
Christmas Eve with destruction
wreaked on one of the better
. looking entrances to our city by
some unthinking people during the
night before; tearing up what
so many have spent a lot of time
and money providing for the
enjoyment of our people and those
who pay us a visit.
We can't help but remember a

Johnson, who has made a name for
himself in the Panhandle of Florida

,and flowering medias along our

Johnson was impres-
ht which greeted him
St. Joe.


Most of us who live here in Port
St. Joe are also impressed by the
sight and yearn for still more
improvements to be made to what
exists and on other streets which
have received little attention at
beautification.
It was with a sense of dismay,
even during the eve of a long
holiday season which fosters bro-
therly love and goodwill toward
men, that we drove up the street
early Christmas Eve and saw the-
ugly signs of where someone had
dug up a portion of the median on
Fifth Street by making repeated
circles on the grassy divider,
digging up the grass and leaving
unsightly wheel tracks to greet our
visitors and homefolks, alike.
They didn't stop there, either.
At several spots along the street,
someone had turned their vehicle
into the grassy areas, cutting them
up and spinning their wheels to dig
deep ruts in what was a smooth
green expanse of lawn between the
clumps of shrubbery.
Not only that, but it forced us to
have to begin the year on a
negative note in these columns
since it was just an impossibility
for us to ignore such unconscion-
able vandalism.
In spite of it all, we had a
merry Christmas, but it would
have been a much more satisfying
holiday if someone hadn't ruined it
by such wanton destruction.

Hunker Down with Kes


It Was So Dark That

I Missed Captain Midnight


by Kesley Colbert-? '


Wasn't the turkey and
dressing good on Christmas
day! You know, I enjoyed
another helping Christmas
night. Cathy warmed it up
for lunch on the day after
Christmas. When I sat down
for supper that night I saw
her taking a most familiar
pan out of the oven. What the
heck, it's Christmas time, I
never said a word - I just
shoveled on a little extra
cranberry sauce and ate my
leftover, leftover, leftover
dressing in silence. The next
day for lunch - guess what?
You know, it's a contest now
to see if that dressing can
make it to New Years. If we
can nurse the dressing to the
1st, then we can start on the
black eyed peas. Hey, a big
enough pot will tide us over


until Easter and we'll munch
op leftover chocolate bun-
nies 'till the bar-b-que is
ready July 4th.
I trust that ya'll had a nice
Christmas. I know those
good folks at the Eveready
Battery Company did. Every
toy my children received
this year took at least two
batteries to make it work.
You know what the batteries
are for - to make the toy
make noise! You know what
I mean? Those Evereadies
that you've got to rush out
and buy at 11:30 on
Christmas eve will
guarantee your transformer,
tank, doll, SIMON, metal
detector, etc. to wail,
screech, scream, explode or
lay down in the floor and roll
over depending on which


button you push. None of the
above mentioned noise
makers has a self destruct
button. I promise I've look-
ed. By ten o'clock Christmas
morning I understood why
pet rocks and Red Ryder
gloves had gone the way of
the dinosaur - they didn't
make any noise.
The only Christmas gift
that I remember receiving
that required two size "D"
Evereadies was a genuine
Captain Midnight flashlight.
You remember those? They
didn't make any noise. And I
opened it at 6:30 in the morn-
ing. The only times that I
turned that light off all day
was when I stopped at lunch
for the turkey and dressing
and when I stopped for sup-
per and more turkey and


dressing. Just as soon as it
got dark I headed to the
woods to really check out my
new light. Captain Midnight
had sent me a message on
my official Captain Midnight
code-o-graph that he was
landing down on Archie
Moore's pond and he needed
my help. It seems like some
world famous criminals had
built a big hide out down by
Mr. Archie's pond. Me and
my good friend Captain Mid-
night was a'fixing to pull'em
out of that hide-out and
bust'em up some. Of course,
I was going to give the Cap-
tain all of the credit. I was
thinking that he might let me
wear his leather jacket and
be on his T.V. show when my
light went out. The batteries
had run down. You see, we


didn't know about that cop-
per top stuff in 1958.
Let me tell you something,
it's plum dark in December
down at Mr. Archie's pond. I
wandered around for a
while, pausing every so often
to call out softly "Captain
Midnight, are you out
there?"
What if I stumbled into the
world famous criminals'
hide-out by mistake? I
remembered Buddy Wig-
gleton telling me about see-
ing a bear down by the pond.
Surely it's too cold tonight
for bears, isn't it? I though I
heard something behind me!
Must'a been the wind. I
heard it again! I decided
right then to let the good
Captain have the world
famous criminals all to
himself. I'm heading to the
house and if something steps
out in front of me my silent,
burnt out, official Captain
Midnight flashlight would
make a noise across it's
skull. Somehow I got turned
around and came out on the
highway way out by Mr. Roy
Manley's house. I broke and
ran for my house praying
with each step that if God

Regardless of whether it's today

Sometimes I think I am in the
latter stages of alzheimer's disease,
my memory is so leaky. Some lady
wrote to one of the advice columnists

beginning to get terrible. "Nonsense",

year was Sunday, December 21. That
was not only the shortest day of the
year, but it was officially the first day
of winter in the northern hemisphere,
of which we are a part.
I really thought there was some-
thing sinister about that day, even
though it was a Sunday and just a few
days before Christmas.
I didn't have time to get every-


thing done I wanted to on that day. By
the time I went to church twice that
day, read the Sunday newspapers,
took a nap and watched a football
game or two, the day was all gone. It
just slipped on by and faded into the
past before I even realized- it was the
shortest day of the year. Had I known
ahead of time, I could have left
something out, but I don't know what
it would have been. Certainly not the
nap.
In spite of the shortest day of the
year coming smack in the middle of
the most popular of holiday seasons, I
had a great time that week. I made it
through the holiday week without a
hitch. Actually, I'm already getting
ready for Christmas next year. I am
thinking about it already.

ONE OF THE things I enjoyed
during the Christmas holidays-along
with the shortest day of the year-was
attending a birthday party up in
Quincy last Saturday.
Most of you who have lived here a
while remember Wayne Buttram. He


and his wife, Doris, and four younguns
lived here a few years back in the late
40's, all through the 50's and moved to
Quincy in the early 60's.
Wayne's wife, Doris, worked up a
surprise birthday dinner for Wayne.
The four kids helped in the arrange-
ments, doing things like barbecueing
chicken and preparing a rented hall
for serving some 100 or so guests.
Doris had the job of getting the
thing planned and keeping it a secret
from old Wayne. That must have been
quite a job, because Wayne is
naturally just a little nosy about
things going around him anyhow.
Doris said she never told so many lies
in such a short time in her life, trying
to keep the secret until the big day.
She was successful at it. When you
take the propensity of women to tell
things they know and Wayne's natural
nosiness, that secret was one of the
major miracles of this world.
Wayne chalked up number 70 last
Saturday afternoon. But, you know,
his hair is still red and his face is still
as smooth as a baby's behind... if the
baby is 70 years old.

Let's Watch Some Movies
SOME PEOPLE LOOK AT ME with doubt in their
eyes when I tell them I don't go to movies and seldom
watch tv. Well, I don't go to movies anymore and it's
very seldom that I watch a tv program.
The last movie I saw was "Tootsie." That was
about five or six years ago. It was, in my opinion, a
fairly good movie. It was not worth the drive to
Panama City, the five dollars entrance fee, the eight
dollars for popcorn and cokes and the twenty-five
dollars for dinner after the movie, however.
Besides that, the story, however unique, just
wasn't my type movie.
DURING THE CHRISTMAS HOLIDAYS our fami-
ly decided to rent some movies and watch them while
we enjoyed stuffing ourselves with holiday food and
drink. It was cold outside, as it should be on Christmas,
but it was warm inside and we had plenty of good food
and warm relations to visit with.
The first day, Christmas Eve, I didn't get to watch
any movies because I was working. The second day,
however, my youngest son and I went to the movie ren-
tal shop and picked out five movies to carry us through
the weekend. Correction .... I picked out one and he
picked out the rest.
The movie I selected was a western classic,
"Shane", that was made some twenty-five years ago. I
paid scant attention to the other movies he selected. He
assured me they were good ones, though.
It was decided, since I shelled out the hard cash for
the movies, that we would watch "Shane" first.
I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED A GOOD WESTERN
movie. It had been some time since I had seen "Shane"
and I had just about forgotten what a great movie it is.
From the opening scene where the boy is watching the
deer and then the deer and the boy are watching the ap-
proaching rider, to the ending gunfight in Grafton's
saloon, the movie is nothing but a graphic, American
made classic.
Just before the movie started, my daughter asked
me, "Dad, what is this movie rated?"
I thought for a moment and answered, "Honey,
this movie was made before there was a need for a
rating."
"Must be an awfully dull movie," she replied,
quietly.
The worst language used in the movie was when
Shane (Alan Ladd) challenged the gunfighter in Graf-
ton's Saloon, saying, "I heard you was a dirty, lying
yankee!"
The only nudity was when Shane took off his shirt
to help cut a stump out of the ground.
What a great family show!
After "Shane" I went upstairs to refresh my plate
and glass. When I returned my son had plugged in
"Trading Places" starring Eddie Murphy. There were
about three minutes into it when I returned.
Six minutes into this slime film, they started using
some of the worst language I have ever heard. At ten
minutes, thirty seconds into it they were dancing nak-
ed. At ten minutes thirty-five seconds I stopped the
movie.,

Rotary Charity


Ball New Year's


Eve at 9 P.M.


The Rotary Club is spon-
soring its Charity Ball Wed-
nesday night, using New
Year's Eve as the theme for
the ball, which will be held in
the Centennial Building.
Festivities will begin at
9:00 p.m., according to Ro-
tarian Peter Rosasco, who is
project chairman for the
Ball. "We have a superb
orchestra coming for the
event and we know everyone
who attends will have a good
time", Rosasco said.
The orchestra which is
providing music for the ball
this year is the Maxwell Air
Force Dance Band of Mont-
gomery, Alabama. "They
will be playing familiar
danceable tunes as well as
4i bringing two vocalists who
will entertain the guests with
their renditions of several of
the songs", Rosasco said.
The ball is a limited ticket
affair, with the ducats being
sold for $30.00 per couple.
"The ticket price includes
everything except the food
you wish to eat while you are
there", Rosasco said.
Funds raised by the project
will be used by the Rotary
Club to finance improve-

SEVEN HIGHWAY DEATHS
And, as was mentioned at the


beginning of this chronology, there
were seven people who met death
on Gulf County's highways in 1986.
In the month of May, William
R. Jenkins and Jeffrey D. Barnes of
Wewahitchka were killed when
their Jeep was struck by a truck.
In June, Gracie Stone Smith of
Apalachicola was killed near Port
St. Joe when she lost control of her
car and it struck a pine tree.
In July, Laura Kye Bidwell, 11,

of Wewahitchka, was struck by a
vehicle while riding a moped on the
side of the road just south of
Wewahitchka.
In September, Arthur Jefferson
Gaskin of Blountstown was killed
when the log truck he was driving
overturned on Highway 98 south of
Port St. Joe.
Two were killed on the high-
ways in the month of October.
Margaret Holian of Wewahitchka
had her car skid into the path of a


truck on Highway 22 and was killed
instantly. Charles Blanchard Smith
of Port St. Joe, was killed when he
was struck by an automobile while
walking across Highway 98 at St.
Joe Beach.
Of course, there were several
more important happenings in Gulf
County during the past year, but
these were the highlights of an
interesting, a progressive and at
times a tragic year.

Eye Openers
by Dr. Wesley Grace
HOW YOUR EYES WORK
Did you ever wonder about
how your eyes work? For ex-
ample, what happens when
you pick up a book and start
reading?
* Your wonderful eyes start
to function faster than the
most sophisticated com-
puter.
* Six small muscles aim
each eye at the particular
words you are reading.
* The aperture (pupil) of
each eye changes in size to
regulate the right amount
of light you need to see
with.
* A ring of tiny muscles ad-
justs the thickness of each
lens so that the image of
each word focuses on a
light sensitive screen
(retina) at the back of the
eye. The millions of cells in
the retina react to color
and intensity of light. A set
of signals from each eye is
generated and sent to the
brain via nerve fibers.
* The separate signals from
each eye are translated in-
to a "single image", or pic-
ture by the brain.;
All this happens instantan-
eously and automatically,
but not always perfectly.
Any imperfection in the
shape, size or function of
either eye affects the clarity
of what you see and the ease
of how you see it. Most im-
perfections in sight can be
corrected by glasses, con-
tact lenses and/or vision
training.

This holiday season hun-
dreds of partygoers will die
on American highways be-
cause they drank too much
alcohol.
But, it doesn't have to be
that way if people would only
follow a few safety measures
when consuming spirits, says
Dr. 0. Thomas Feagin, direc-
tor of prospective medicine
and wellness programs at the
Ochsner Medical Institutions
in New Orleans.
"In social circles, drinking
alcohol can act as a general
anesthetic and reduce inhibi-
tions. But, even by just
consuming it in small
amounts, alcohol carl impair
your decision making capabi-
lities," he says, adding, "ask
a non-drinking friend to drive
you home or call a cab if you
feel you've had too much to
drink at a party."
"According to Feagin,
general effects of drinking
depend upon body weight and
whether the drinker has or
has not eaten while drinking.
Based on consumption of a
single drink (12 ounces of
beer, 4 ounces of dry wine or

1 ounce of hard liquor), and
given a person of average
size and weight, here are the
general effects of drinking:
1 - 2 drinks - A sense of
comfort and relaxation. This
takes four hours to wear off.
3 drinks - Reduced inhibi-
tions and exaggerated behav-
ior. This takes six hours to
wear off.
4 drinks - Clumsiness and
slurring of speech. Probably
reaches the point of legal
intoxication (usually 0.1 per-
cent blood alcohol). This
takes eight hours to wear off.

5 drinks - Obvious intoxi-
cation. When blood alcohol
levels reach 0.2 percent, the
drinker will usually fall
asleep.
7 - 8 drinks - If consumed
*quickly enough to raise blood
alcohol to 0.3 percent, death
can result from respiratory
function failure.
If you happen to make it
home after a binge of drink-
ing, hangovers are inevitably
faced by most party-goers.

Sharks Take Second Place In Tournament


Lose 1t

It was a double overtime
game which put the Port St.
Joe Sharks into the winner's
bracket of the Holiday Clas-
sic tournament in Panama
City, and it was a double
overtime which spelled de-
feat for the Sharks in the
championship game against
Apalachicola.
The Sharks were going for
their fourth championship of
the Classic in five appear-
ances in the final game, but
Apalachicola managed to get
Curtis Beard in foul trouble
in the first half and he sat on
the bench for the entire third
period. Still, it was Beard
who was high point man for
both teams, scoring 34 points
in his abbreviated appear-
ance in the game Monday
night.
DEFEAT BAY, 76-74
The Sharks came from a
half-time four point deficit to
tie the game against Bay
High Friday afternoon. The
Sharks took a two point bulge
in the second overtime, on
two free throws by Equador
Peters with 42 seconds left to
take the lead. Beard hit two
layups in the second over-
time for the Sharks six points
in the period.
Carlos Julius paced the
Sharks with 26 points against
the Tornadoes. Beard was
close behind with 24 points.
Jason Hammac was the only
other Shark scoring in double
figures with 14 points.

It's Now


Florida


Law


The AAA Clubs of Florida
and the Florida Department
of Highway Safety & Motor
Vehicles announced a joint
call for enforcement of Flor-
ida's safety belt law, during a
news conference held in
Tallahassee recently.
Beginning New Year's
Day, law enforcement offi-
cials are authorized to issue
citations carrying a $20 fine
for violators of the 1986 law,
strongly supported by Flor-
ida AAA clubs. The driver is
responsible for assuring that
front seat occupants age 16
and under are properly re-
strained; front seat occu-


pants older than 16 years of
age can be individually cited.
The two Florida clubs -
Peninsula Motor Club and
AAA East Florida - have sent
letters to all Florida law
enforcement agencies asking
for their commitment to
enforce the statute. Accord-
ing to Kevin Bakewell, Direc-
tor of Safety for the Penin-
sula Motor Club, "With a
commitment to enforcement
and continued educational
efforts, a 1987 goal of 60
percent usage would be at-
tainable. AAA hopes to' re-
cognize outstanding and in-
novative efforts by police


CARD OF THANKS
We wish to thank everyone
for their help and sympathy
on the loss of our loved one.
We want to thank the staff of
Bay St. Joseph Care Center,
and Dr. San Pedro for their
loving care during Verlon's
last few months. Thanks to
Brother Dave Fernandez,
Sister Jean Shoots, and to
each and every one who
brought food and tokens of
love, and to those who sent
flowers. You have all shown
the true Christian expression
of love by caring, and just
being there when needed
most.
May God richly bless each
and every one of you.

agencies in safety belt law
enforcement and education."
Statewide usage now
stands at 40.6 percent, con-
siderably higher than the 28.7
percent usage shown in the
April 1986 pre-law survey,
but quite a drop from the 52.7
percent usage on July 1, the
effective date of the law.
According to Bakewell,
"Many people will obey a law
simply because it is a law.
Unfortunately, punitive mea-
sures - such as a $20 fine - are
necessary to convince others
to comply. Enforcement of
this nature must begib on
January 1 and continue


Debbie and Jimmy

CARD OF THANKS
I wish to take this oppor-
tunity to thank everyone for
their care and concern shown
to me during my recent
illness. Thank you and a
happy new year to everyone.
Mrs. E.C. Cason &
family
CARD OF THANKS
Your kind expressions of
sympathy 'will always be
remembered. The food, calls,
cards, flowers and those who
came by to say that you
cared, for all this we are
eternally thankful.

throughout the year."
The AAA will conduct a
safety belt usage survey of 16
Florida cities on January 5 -
8, 1987, to determine present
usage rates and the effect of
initial enforcement efforts.
This is a scientific survey
being conducted by the AAA
in conjunction with the Flor-
ida Bureau of Public Safety
Management and Florida
State University.
The media may take pic-
tures or video of the survey in
progress on Thursday, Janu-
ary 8, from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m.
On-site interviews will be
granted and available in


Tampa only. Survey results
can be obtained after 1 p.m.
on Thursday, January 8, by
calling the Peninsula Motor
Club Traffic Safety Depart-
ment, (813) 872-5057. Other
interviews may be arranged
at this time.
For the exact location of
the January 8 survey, con-
tact the local AAA office in
the following cities:
Cocoa, Fort Lauderdale,
Jacksonville, Ocala, Pensa-
cola, St. Petersburg, Talla-
hassee, West Palm Beach,
'Daytona, Gainesville, Mia-
mi, Orlando, Port Charlotte,
Sarasota and Tampa.


It's Best to Just Say "No".!!


If you're wondering how to
deal with holiday hosts who
insist on your having a drink
when you'd rather not, it's
best to be assertive, letting
them know loud and clear
how you feel, say two Uni-
versity of Florida counselors.
"I think the simplest and
most effective thing to do if
you don't want to drink is just
to say 'no,' " said Gerardo
Gonzalez, a UF professor of
k- counselor education. "But in
our society, particularly at
office parties during the
holiday season, sometimes it
seems unacceptable to refuse
a drink."
So if your host becomes
insistent after you've said
'no,' the next step is to justify
your option in an assertive
manner, said David Such-
man, a counselor in UF's
Counseling Center. "An as-
sertive thing to say would be
'Thank you very much, I


appreciate your hospitality,
but at this point, I really need
something to quench my
thirst rather than to relax
me.' "
Such a reply is not only a
strong statement, but it also
leaves the host with a grace-
ful exit, said Suchman "It
doesn't lead your host to
become abusive back," he
said.
Gonzalez said that if your
reply insults your host or
hurts his or her feelings, he
or she is likely to give tit for
tat: "If you're aggressive,
you're going to get aggres-
sion right back," he said,
"and things are going to
escalate."
No matter how you handle
the situation, though, non-
drinkers should be prepared
to handle occasional resent-
ment: "It might be tacit
aggression like turning to the
people around to get group

support and saying, 'Hey,
guess what? Joe's not drink-
ing tonight, and 'he told me to
bug off,' " said Gonzalez.
Or the host's reply might
suggest that there's some-
thing wrong with you for hot
wanting to drink, such as
"Hey, you're no fun," or
"What's the matter? Are you
on the wagon or something?"
"If the host puts you on the


spot like that," Gonzalez
said, "you need to tell the
host how he's making you
feel. I'd suggest saying some-
thing like 'I said no thank you
and now you're making me
feel uncomfortable.'
"If you let your host know
how his pressure is making
you feel, it will tend to
undermine that sort of
thing," he said. "Unfortun-


ately, a lot of times the
easiest thing to do is just to
take the drink and justify
your action to yourself by
saying, 'I'll just have a little
one' or 'Make it light.' The
problem is that just encour-
ages this sort of behavior on
the part of hosts.
"And this might put you in
a situation you did not want
to be in in the first place," he
said.
Some people, however, will
have a hard time being
assertive, particularly with a
persistent host, Gonzalez
said. In such cases, he
suggests saying that you
want to fix your own drink,
and then make a soda water,


garnishing it with a lime and
swizzle stick. "Another thing
is with the increased avail-
ability of non-alcoholic beers
and wines, you can always
bring your own bottle," he
said.
