Fourth to Serve County



Lister Sworn In


To


County Clerk's Post


Gulf County had only one public officer to be
sworn in on Tuesday while the state was busily
ushering its new officers into their duties and
Congress was seating its new members in
Washington, D.C. In the Gulf County Courthouse, it
was fruit punch, cookies and a cocoanut cake
celebrating the occasion instead of pomp and
circumstance, champagne and caviar. Judge W.L.
Bailey administered the oath of office in a simple but
dignified manner as he gave the oath of office to
Benny C. Lister, who becomes the fourth Clerk of the
Circuit Court to serve the county in its 61 year history.
Lister was joined by his wife, Peggy and his son,
Daryl, as he repeated the oath of office to the
prompting of Judge Bailey. Most of the "courthouse
gang" was gathered for the five-minute ceremony,
along with a handful of close friends and supporters
who came to witness the official swearing-in.
Lister will complete the remaining two years
remaining in the term of Jerry Gates, who resigned in
July to run for a state office. Lister, who served as


Gates' financial officer, became one of four
candidates for the abbreviated term and was
successful in succeeding his old boss in the office.
Lister was noticeably nervous during the
ceremony, and as Sheriff Al Harrison told him during
the small reception later, "It looked like you were
waving to everybody, with that right hand stuck up in
the air, shaking".
The new clerk has said he will make no changes
in the office personnel. He also said he will not hire a
financial officer, especially during the present
budget year. "I don't think we will have the funding to
pay a financial officer, so I will do the work. myself,
for this year, at least", he said
Clerks of the Circuit Court serie as records
keepers for the County Commission, keep all county
recorded instruments, serve as records keepers for
the court process and in recent months have been
charged with maintaining a close scrutiny of child
support responsibilities.

local druggist, as a member of the bank's Board of
Directors.
Cannon said Guif t fills the vacancy on the Board

early Monday morning ended
in a man being shot to death,
according to the Gulf County
Sheriff's Department.
Ray Vann, 25, was found

City to Request Repairs -


for Several Local Streets i


The City of Port St. Joe will
make a formal request to the
Gulf County Commission to
repair several streets in the
North Port St. Joe area,
which have fallen into a state
of disrepair.
A list containing some 10 or
more spots which were in
need of patching and filling
"holes were presented to the
Commission Tuesday night
by a group of citizens in the
area, calling on the City for
support in getting the work
done.
Commissioner James B.
SRoberts remarked that the
county receives all road
repair funds in Gulf County
and were charged with keep-
ing all streets in good repair.
Roberts made a motion to
request the county to make
the repairs requested.
MLK CELEBRATION
Clarence Monette reported


to the Commission that the
appointed Martin Luther
King memorial committee,
named by Mayor -Pate in
January of last year, was
planning a Celebration in
memory of the slain civil
rights leader for January 15
here in Port St. Joe. Monette
asked if the City would
underwrite some of the ex-
penses, estimated to be
around $200. Monette said
Barbara Gradington, a re-
cent candidate for Congress,
of Tallahassee, would be the
main speaker at the celebra-
tion. "She isn't charging to
come and speak, but we
should pay her travel ex-
penses and we will have' a
few other expenses with the
celebration", Monette said.
Mayor Pate said he didn't
want to appear to be object-
ing to the celebration but
thought paying the expenses
with public money might be


setting a precedent which
might prove to be a problem
in the future. Pate suggested
the members of the Commis-
sion guarantee the payment
of expenses and raise the
money from private dona-
tions. "We won't have any
problem doing that", he said.
Roberts then suggested the
Commission advise Monette
the money for the expenses
would be "guaranteed" by
the Board; a suggestion
which was accepted by the
Commission and by Monette.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business items
considered in the short meet-
ing, the Commission:
-Received police activity
reports for the months of
November and December.
-Agreed to call for bids for
the purchase of a pick-up
truck for the Wastewater
(Continued on Page 3)


The two trucks pictured above bumped
noses Monday morning at the corner of


Garrison Avenue and Fifth Street with
considerable damage.


Two Trucks Bump On 5th


A large tractor-trailer and a pick-up
truck collided Monday morning at the
intersection of Fifth Street and Garrison
Avenue. The crash resulted in violation of
right of way charges being filed against
Thomas Jackson Tyree of Moultrie, Georgia
who is a truck driver for the GoldKist
Corportaion.
According to Port St. Joe police reports,
Gus Frazier Miller of Port St. Joe was
travelling in a westerly direction on Fifth
Street in a 1983 pick-up truck, approaching
the Fifth Street intersection from the
direction of the Courthouse.


Tyree was driving his tractor-trailer rig
south on Garrison Avenue and pulled into
the intersection into the path of Miller's
vehicle, which ran into the left front wheel of
the tractor. Miller was slightly injured in the
collision and his truck suffered considerable
damage. Miller was treated and released
from Gulf Pines Hosptal.
Tyree said he failed to see the Miller
vehicle approaching the intersection.
The pick-up truck was heavily damaged
but the tractor received only minor
damages.


Biology Course
right direction".
Approximately half the grant will be
used for teacher training and the other half
for materials and equipment.
.Presently four local teachers have
taken advantage of the training offer and
have attended special courses at the Marine
Biology Institute in Orlando, sponsored by
Valenicia Junior College and utilizing the
facilities at Orlando's Sea World.
The grant re-imburses the local school
district for the expenses of this specialized
Straining' and short, course ,.-
The introduction of the marine biology
courses to the science curriculum in the Gulf
County system was introduced because of
the requirements of the RAISE Bill, which
required extra science credit offerings from
the district.


Building Boom


Cools Down

But Numbers Are Still
Substantial for Gulf
The building boom of 1954 here in Gulf County sort
of calmed down a little bit into more of a building "pop"
during 1986, but according to the records of Gulf County
Building Department director, Dewayne Manuel,
builders in the county didn't exactly sit idle in 1986.
Manuel, who takes care of building permits,
inspections and keeping contractors within the limits of
accepted building practices throughout the county and
in Wewahitchka, said both of his responsible areas
showed a decrease in building over the previous year.
Most of the building here in Gulf County was in
dwelling units. In 1985, Manuel reported there were a
total of 372 new housing units permitted in his
jurisdiction in the county. Last year, the number of.
housing unit starts dipped to 209. "This is still a lot of
building going on", Manuel said. "We had over 123
housing unit starts in the first three months of the year,
with people trying to get in under the wire of the new
beachfront control line requirements which went into
effect the middle of February last year. The property
owners had to get permits before the February 5
deadline and had to begin building within so many days
or the permit became void".
Most of the new construction was reported by
Manuel to be in the vicinity of Cape San Bias and the
Cape area. "About 80 percent of our new construction is
in this area, with 15 percent on the north beaches and
the other five percent in the Wewahitchka area", the
inspector said. He pointed specifically to the number of
mobile home permits issued-154-as being the most
popular growth method in the northern part of the
county. "I estimate at least 90 percent of these mobile
homes were placed in the northern half of the county",
he said.
While the new construction business wasn't all that
great during 1986, Manuel reports it wasn't all that bad,
either.
Manuel said his records show new building values
of $11,030,606 in his area of operation during 1986. Last
year, the new building values were reported at $21,-
170,000, or nearly twice what they were during 1986.
Manuel's office collected $75,414 in permits during
1986. "This money didn't go to the county", Manuel
pointed out. "The entire income from the building
department is to operate the department. It provides a
service required by the state of Florida at no cost to
county tax payers", he pointed out.
In addition to the 209 new housing starts, the
building department recorded some 55 permits issued
for additions to existing housing; 154 mobile home

Comments:


THE STAR
THURSDAY, JANUARY 8,1987 PAGE TWO


Even though it's time to say,
"we told you so", we still hate to do
it.
Remember, back in the heat of
the summer and the electioneering,
when supporters of the lottery
proposition told us they were
supporting the adoption of a lottery
in Florida, so the income could be
used for the public school system?
Remember how our state's
former Superintendent of Educa-
tion, turned expert on the operation
of lotteries, assured us the schools
would receive approximately $300
million each year from the game?
Remember how we were made to
believe the advent of the lottery
would virtually wipe out any need
for more taxes-especially for
schools?
We opposed the lottery being
made a way of life in Florida
because we thought it (gambling)
was wrong. We didn't think we had
any business introducing even
more gambling into our state,
especially on the premise that the
money would be used to educate
our children. Those who supported
lotteries in Florida didn't deny they
were inherently wrong. They stuck
by their guns, saying they would
support the question because the
schools needed and would get the
money.
: Now that the lottery question

There has probably been no
other time in the history of Florida
when the state has had three
governors within the span of a
. week.
: Friday, Wayne Mixson took
over as the state chief executive

Slave early to go to his neW "ob. in
Washington, D.C. Mixson, the.
lieutenant governor of the state,
who-according to the people of
Northwest Florida-should have
been governor; was for three days.
Mixson, a Marianna farmer,
was a favorite of his home area in
the state, was the drawing card
which drew support to the Graham-
Nixson team for the past eight
years. Both men knew quite well
that it was the Northwest Florida
vote which was the pivotal support
which elected the team.
It has been no secret either
here in Gulf county or in Tallahas-
see that the Graham ticket drew its
support from Gulf county because'
of the presence of Nixson on the
team. It was a sad day for the
Panhandle of Florida, when Nixson

has been approved for Florida, it
isn't such a certainty that our
schools will get all that money after
all. The ballots were barely all
counted before there were people'in
high places which were already
looking at that $300 million annual
windfall with a wistful gaze and
wondering if some of the money
couldn't be better spent in other
places. Not the least of these
powerful voices is the one of our
Governor-elect, Bob Martinez.
We're dubious if there will even
be $300 million to divvy up after a
year of operation of the gambling.
device.
There are also powerful voices
speaking up in support of the
money staying in the school system
(if there ever is any money) and
being spent right where Ralph
Turlington said it would be. We
don't know whether Turlington was
duped, lied, or was simply mistak-
en about the lottery question, but
we know we were disappointed in
Mr. Turlington. We would have
been disappointed in his position in
the matter if we had supported the
lottery.
As it is, it gives us no
satisfaction at all to say, "We told
you so". Maybe we could just not
activate the lottery machinery and
forget the state made such a stupid
mistake in the first place.


Hunker Down with Keys


He Ain't Old,


He's My Brothei

t- *


Hi. I'm Leon Colbert,
Kesley's brother. I'm
writing his column this week
because, well Kes is starting.
to have trouble with his
hands. Like have you noticed
him wearing those little slip-
on loafers instead of real
lace up shoes?
I guess one of the early
signs came last summer.
Kesley graduated from high
school and turned down of-
fers from the St. Louis Card-
inals and Cincinnati Reds to
attend the University of the
South on a baseball scholar-
ship. Not only could he hit,
but he had the greatest
range at shortstop the pro
scouts had ever seen. He
could go to his right or his
left with the best wvho ever


played the game. Then this
past summer, I saw his 9
year old Jesse hit one by
him.
In high school Kesley was
an All-State quarterback.
Boy-howdy what an arm. He
could stand flat footed and
throw the ball eighty-five
yards right on target. Then
this fall he couldn't throw far
enough to hit his 11 year old
Josh on a simple down and
out pattern.
Another thing, the last
time our other brother
David, our good friend Fred,
Kes and I played golf, we
noticed Kesley was hitting
one more club than he used
to. Where he once hit a six
iron he was now hitting a five
iron, and none of his drives


will be 40 years old this Sun-
day.
His loving brother,
Leon

by Kesley Colbert-
went as far as they once did.
Fred said it had been getting
worse all summer.
And isn't it sad how the
mind slowly starts to slip.
Why I remember Ralph
Emery at the Grand Ole
Opry calling Kesley to get
the answer to some difficult
question concerning the
history of country music.
Now he's starting to confuse
the Statler Brothers with the
Oak Ridge Boys.
And his hair! Bless his
heart, what's not starting to
turn gray is starting to turn
loose! I can remember when
his hairline came all the way
down to the top of his
forehead.
And the eyesight! Being an
eye doctor, one of the little


Panhandlers


SA Week


things I've picked up on is
how Kes has trouble with the
fine print if the light is not
just right. There was a time
he could spot a deer at 800
yards and tell you how many
antlers it had. Now it makes
you feel sad for him when he
has to ask Cathy to look up a
number in the phone book.
David and his wife (the
former Charlotte Graham)
spent their entire Christmas
vacation visiting Kesley.
Our Mom has been with him
now for about a month. My
family and I will be there as
soon as we can make ar-
rangements. We all want to
spend as much time as we
can with Kes because we just
don't know how much longer
it may be. You see, Kesley

politics and spend a few years
doing what he wanted to do. We
can't blame him one little bit for his
decision. With his picture-postcard
farm and land holdings snug up
against the Alabama border, we
would have found it hard to remain
in Tallahassee for ahsongeasehg did."
In other words, what we're
trying to say is that, regardless of
how much the State of Florida paid
Mixson for his services; regardless
of the influence he might have
wielded and what little satisfaction
it gave him; in spite of the percs
which came along with being
-lieutenant governor of Florida;
despite these rewards or any other
that might have come his way,
Wayne Mixson did Florida--espe-
cially the Panhandle-a favor by
serving as long as he did.
We wish Mr. Mixson well in his
new duties as sole lord of the Mix-
son manor for the next few years.
He has earned the right to relax.
We just hope he enjoys it as much
as we enjoyed having him serve us
in Tallahassee.


:tice and Luck to Get Off On the


Rigi


It.


WELL, HERE WE go; off into
1987 in a blaze of expectation and
enthusiasm.
I see where the Department of
Commerce said the other day that
1987 would be a good year, economic-
ally. On the other side of the building,
they were announcing the largest
quarterly trade deficit in years, which
had totally wiped out any progress
made during the previous few quar-
ters of overAeas trade.
The day before, trade with the
European Common Market was
threatened when the United States
declared a tariff against certain
Eurpoean imports because of the
Europeans' tariff on American feed
grain imports.
I understand why the tariff was at
least threatened. Here the United
States is the largest market in the
world and those other nations in the
world probably sell half their export-
" ed production to us. If it weren't for
" the United States, they would have
" virtually no market. Then, they try to
levy tariffs on American goods and
complain when Americans levy tariffs


against their goods.
Meanwhile, we allow the Japa-
nese to get away with the same thing,
except on a much larger scale.
And so it'll be a good year,

I WELCOMED THE new year in

In spite of those three coins

that I didn't break a tooth on one of the
coins.
I thought New Year's day was
going to be a miserable one. New

years, but it jumped right on me New
Year's Eve.
I got out my warm fleece lined
lounging slippers, built up a fire in the
fireplace, looked up a box of tissues
and the day's papers, slumped down
in my recliner, turned on the
American Bowl in Birmingham and
watched that New Year come in right
in style.
Actually, FSU had already dump-
ed Indiana in the All-American Bowl


before the New Year slipped in, but
old Johnny Carson was holding forth
and he relinquished a few seconds of
his program for those of us who were
slumped down in recliners, with a
roaring fire in the fireplace to have
our adreniline pumped up just a little
bit by watching a ball drop on Times
Square in New York at the stroke of
the midnight hour.
I watched that sucker in and
didn't miss a thing.
As a matter of fact, the method
with which I watched the new year
come in was so satisfying, gratifying,
electrifying and downright comfort-
able, I think I'll try it again next year.
I could get to be an expert at this
business of watching the new year
come in.

ON NEW YEAR'S DAY, I gave
the utility room its annual cleaning
and straightening. We haven't been
able to get in the room since July 17,
except that a small path was always
kept open to the washing machine.
The rest of the room was socked in. I
moved hundreds of items which we
intend to use again some day and at


least that many more which were just
too good to throw away and we intend
to find someone who needs them at
some time in the future.
There was an electric cord to an
electric griddle. We don't have a
griddle anymore, but the cord and
control is perfectly good ... too good
to throw away.
There was an ice cream churn
which had an almost new wooden
bucket. The mixture can had been
ruined the second or third time the
freezer was used when someone put it
on a stove burner to dry quickly after
it had been washed. It dried so quickly
the soldered seams came unsoldered"
and the can was warped useless. The
bucket is still good, though, so we still
have it in the utility room.
There were 37 baskets of all
shapes and sizes, four withered and
dried flower arrangements being
saved "to get the good stuff out of", a
rusty saw and two broken sprayers,
among other valuable items.
There were all kinds of treasures
in that utility room and I spent most of
my New Year holiday, re-discovering
them.

SHAD

PHANTRY
by Wendell Campbell




It Ain't Easy!!

RECENTLY I READ AN article that stated
making New Year's resolutions was senseless. The
author, a well know columnist, stated that a person is
what he is and resolutions, New Year's or otherwise,
will not change him.
I disagree!
+++++
THE AUTHOR, IN MY humble opinion, is either as
goods he will ever be and has given up all hope of
bettering himself or he thinks he is the brother to Jesus
Christ.',
I agree that most New Year's resolutions are
broken. I resolved to stop smoking every year for at
least fifteen years. Finally, on July 22, 1980, my New
Year's resolution stuck.
Certainly, no one can question the need for people
.t&take stocktpf their lives and try to see where they've
beMh and Where they are going.

IT WAS JUST OVER a year ago thatyny family and
I did jtst that. We were living in a town that we were
very unhappyin Oh, we both (my wife and I) had good
jobs and live in a nice apartment but we were just
unhappy living there.
i Finally, we resolved to do something about it. We
quit our jobs and moved back to Port St. Joe.
Admittedly, it was not New Year's Eve when we made
Iour resolution, but it was made just the same.
I Looking back, We could have just as easily said,
"What's the use?" and have stayed right where we
Were. It would have been much easier than moving *
back to a small town with no job and very few prospects
f available.

THERE'S SOMEONE BIGGER than all of us who
will help with resolutions if given the chance. He has
certainly helped with ours and, so, far, things have
worked out much better than we could have hoped for.
There must always be hope. I don't mean life.and
death situations all together, either. It's like a friend
once told me about going to church. He admitted that he
was not the best Christian in the world. I questioned
why he bothered going to church. "Because," he said,
"I ain't gonna get any better if I don't go!"

MY FAMILY AND I have made some resolutions
this year and I hope a few of them stick. We have
resolved that 1987 is going to be the best year of our
lives. We have also resolved to be more prudent about
going to and participating in church activities.
I have resolved to become a better husband and
father. Last year was a busy time for me and I hope
1987 is busier. But no matter how busy it is I am going to
find time to spend with my family.
Another thing I have resolved to do is to become a
better friend and neighbor. One reason the main
reason we moved back here is because of the
wonderful people.
There's one resolution that I made that is highly
questionable. I resolved to lose thirty pounds by
January 1,1988. 1 honestly don't know if I can 40.1i&'-,'
nota1tlebii yb6 ohe thing, though; Tm going'to ~g CT
S hat old Port St. Joe try.
Pray for me, folks! I need all the help I can get.
+++++
HAPPY 1987 TO EVERYONE!

morning, I may get to write
to you next week too.
You see, Dad has been
promising to take me coon
hunting for years now but
somehow something always
came up to keep us from
going. Dad would have a
meeting he has too many
meetings or he'd be
expecting a call or he'd be too
tired or it looked like it was
going to rain or a John
Wayne movie would be on
channel 9. When he was
explaining all the reasons
why we couldn't go he'd
always end up with "Besides,
son, we don't have a dog."
He used'to have dogs. I've
heard all the stories about
when he was growing up and
hunting with old Duke and
Sampson and Sallie and
Tennessee Smokey, Part I.
Dad told me about how they
used to stay out all night
huntin'- those coons or as he
says "Looking for where that
big one walked."
My Grandmother, who is
about the greatest person in
the whole world, told me that
When Daddy was my age he
usec'to live in the woods. One
time when I was back where
Daddy grew up his good
boyhood friend Buddy Wig-
:- gleton told me about the time
Daddy took off his boots and
shirt and swam across the
Obion River in December
because Sampson and Sallie
had "treed" on the other
S.; side. Mr. Wiggleton said they
built a fire and waited till
Dad swam back with both
dogs and the coon.
Why, Mother told me that
Just a few years ago when I
was very small and Jesse
had just been born that Dad
and Uncle Jake spent every
night in the winter in Panther
Swamp huntin' those coons.
Dad had a dog named P.R.
Hatchie Bottom Sassy bnd,
get this, he had a dog named
Tennessee Smoke, Part II
that he kept in our back yard.
I figured I could wear him
down, "Dad, let's go coon
huntin' tonight. Can I get a
i coon dog? I can keep him in


the back yard like you did
Tennessee Smoke, Part II.
Will you buy me a gun? What
happened to Smoke Dad?"
"Slow down son. Smoke got
run over by a truck your
Mother didn't like a dog in
the yard 'cause it kept
treeing the cat let's not go
tonight, I'm tired."
I called Uncle Jake. We
used his dogs and we went
hunting last Saturday. Dad
bought him some RC Colas
and some moon pies and
went with us. It wasn't too
cold when we turned the dogs
into the woods. Dad said,
"Let's get the fire going."
While everyone else was
kinda scouting around for
coon signs Dad was huddled
up near the fire, drinking a
RC Cola. The dogs got to
trailing a coon and we
gathered around the fire and
listened to Uncle Jake and
Dad talk about the dogs they
used to own. Now that Sassy
must'a been some more coon
dog. By the way they talked I
think they'd drive into the
woods, let Sassy bark a
couple of times from the road
and the coons would just
come in by the fire and
surrender.
I was about to ask why they
sold Sassy, when the dogs
treed. Uncle Jake said they
were in there a pretty good
ways and there was lots of
water between us and those
dogs. Dad said his old bad
knee was acting up on him
and he'd better stay out on
the road and "hollar us out"
after we got the coon.
Me and Uncle Jake waded
in to the dogs. It was the most
fun I'd ever had. Uncle Jake
let met shoot the coon out of
the tree. Of course I missed
with the first couple of shots
but after Uncle Jake got
down on his knees behind me
and helped me hold the gun a
little I knocked that coon
right out. When we got back
to the road Dad was still
huddled up next to the fire
just finishing off the last of
the moon pies.
Dad took sick pretty early


the next morning. It didn't
even cheer him up when I
told him Uncle Jake was
getting me a dog. I told him
then we could go hunting any
time we wanted to. I also told
Mother that I didn't know
Dad had a bad knee. Dad
raised up a little to tell me
that he's not as young as he
used to be.
"Boy howdy, Dad, you're
not old you're just middle
aged."

All told, building permits for all reasons reflected
building expenditures of $11,489.661 in Gulf County for
the year.
PORT ST. JOE BUILDING
Although Port St. Joe saw a steady building
program under way, it was nothing like the figures
reported in the county. City Clerk Alden Farris was ill
at the time this information was gathered so no definite
figures could be obtained when this story was written.

The City has continued to experience a slow but
steady growth, however and is expected to top last
year's permits issued valued at $1,792,987. This year
has seen the beginning of the complex in North Port St.
Joe by Rawlis Leslie, which is eventually expected to
be some 34 units. Several new homes have been built in
the city, as well as at least one new business building
and expansion of two others started. Plans were
announced for another enlargement which hasn't been
started yet.
Last year, it was predicted building would increase
with the declining interest rate. Thus far, the interest
rate hasn't set off any splurge in building, but lenders
report a land-office business of refinancing.

ged with collecting $3 million
in ad valorem taxes. "This
year's tax roll has me
charged with collecting $5
million", she said.

Sharks Up Win-Loss Record to 5-5


Port St. Joe's Sharks re-
sumed their basketball sche-
dule Tuesday night, after a
holiday break, defeating the
Mosley Dolphins, 73-50 in a
high-scoring second half.
The Sharks were involved
with the Dolphins and other
teams in the Holiday Classic


tournament held in Panama
City during the three days
following Christmas, and
came opt runners-up to Apa-'
lachicola in the final game of
the Classic.

The game was still a
toss-up at half time, with the


Sharks ahead by only two
points, 25-23. Then Curtis
Beard found the range and
pumped 19 points through the
nets for the Sharks in the
third quarter to lead- the
Sharks in pulling away from
the Dolphins.
The Sharks were only two
points, away from doubling
their first half point produc-
tion in the second half.
Beard wound up pacing
both teams in point produc-
tion, with his 31 baskets for
the night. Beard is now
averaging 28 points per game
for the Sharks, to make him
one of the top point producers
of the Panhandle.
Carlos Julius added 11
points for the Sharks.
The Dolphins had Jonathan
Wilson as their top scorer
with 14 points.
The Sharks are now even
for the young season, with a


record of 5-5. Two of their
five wins came in the Holiday
Classic where they defeated
Bay High and Pensacola
Washington.

The rapid growth of Dixie
Majors Baseball (ages 15 -
18) in the state of Florida has
mandated the establishment
of Districts throughout the
state to foster even greater
growth in the future. The
state is now organized to
seven districts with District I
being the panhandle district
from Pensacola east to the
Apalachicola River.
Each district in Florida is
currently in theL, process of
selecting its district director
and tending to other organi-
zational matters. In this
respect, a meeting is sche-
duled for Monday, January
12 at 7:00 p.m. at the Best
Western Restaurant in De-
Funiak Springs. Anyone in-
terested in learning more


information about Dixie Ma-
jors Baseball and franchising -
teams and or league with
the Dixie Baseball organiz-
ation is encouraged to attend
this important meeting.
A special invitation is
extended to all high school
baseball coaches since many
coaches throughout Florida
are viewing the Dixie Majors
program as an extension of
their, high school baseball
program to provide addition-
al playing time and valuable
experience for those players
returning next year.

charge against the firm the middle of
December, the State of Florida's
Department of Natural Resources
decided' to play the part of Scrooge
and actively pursue charges filed
against the seafood processor. DNR,
through its legal arm, the Marine.
Patrol, had charged Raffield with
violation of an obscure, and largely
dormant law in July, whicAlesulted in
the federal charges droppedd in
mid-December) against the company.
In September, Gulf County Judge
.David Taunton ruled the state's case
against Raffield was based on a law
which was unconstitutional and dis-
missed the charges. Judge Taunton's
ruling had led to dismissal of the
federal charges.
December 22, the DNR filed an
appeal to Judge Taunton's ruling,

which failed to become public, until
SNew Year's Eve, because of the

The State of Florida, in effect, has
said they challenge Judge Taunton's
ruling and feel their charges are valid
and with substance: The state is
appealing Judge Taunton's ruling to a
higher court. -
In the ruling being disputed by
DNR, Taunton charged that the state
law banning the use of purse seines
was pre-empted. by a federal law
allowing use in federal waters.
Taunton also charged that the law was
too vague to be interpreted fairly,
interfered with interstate commerce
by forcing Florida fishermen to
refrain from activities sanctioned by'

enforced against Raffield's crew.

Eye Openers
by Dr. Wesley Grace
SEEING DOUBLE
Q. Does "seeing double" in-
dicate a vision problem?
A. In most cases, double vis-
I ion is caused by the fail-
ure of the two eyes to
work together as a. team.
If one eye starts to turn in
or out frequently, double
vision will occur more
often. Often double vision
may be successfully
treated with. glasses
and/or vision training,
but it can also be a symp-
tom of a more serious
neurological, circulatory
or degenerative disease.
Therefore, any incidence
of double vision is a signal
for a complete eye exam-
ination.
Children who see double
tend to close one eye when
looking at a particular ob-
ject in order to get rid of a
double image. After a
while, these children
learn to suppress vision in
the weaker eye which can
lead to a loss of visual
acuity in that eye.
Another indication that a
child may be seeing dou-
ble is an eye that turns in
or wanders out when the
child is looking straight
ahead.

federal law cited by Taunton-the
Magnuson Act of 1976-allows a state
to. enforce fishing regulhtions..on
vessels registered in that state. The
Magnuson Act was designed to protect
the food supply of the nation, the U.S.
fishing industry and the economies of
coastal states by prohibiting over-
fishing, especially by foreign fishing
fleets in U.S. territorial waters.
The DNR brief takes the position
that the Magnuson Act preserves the
state's right to enforce its own laws on
a state registered boat even if it is
operating outside state waters, basing
its charges against Raffield entirely
on that premise.
Raffield, of course, will file a
response to DNR's request and the
case will go on and on. There is no
indication as to when the appeals
court will hand down a ruling on
DNR's request.

The second part of the
project will involve the oper-
ation of the CAD System in
the Miami FHP radio room.
This system will be capable
of providing immediate in-
formation such as units on
duty, unites on a particular
call, the type of call being
responded to, and units as-
signed as backup. In addi-
tion, it will provide automa-
tic follow-up at specific in-
terval times during stops of
suspicious vehicles by troop-
ers, as well as the collection
of a multitude of data which
will be used in comparative
analysis for management


purposes.
The grant was obtained
through the Department of
Community Affairs, Bureau
of Public Safety Manag-
ment.
"The Patrol is very
pleased to have the opportu-
nity to participate in a pilot
project of this magnitude,"
stated Colonel Burkett. "It
should provide very mean-
ingful information to the
Patrol in making a decision
of whether or not to imple-
ment such a system state-
-wide, and also provide neces-
sary information for budget
requests to the Florida Legis-
lature."

Horoscopes Belong On Comic Page


Even the Biblical Prophets Dealt with Real Experiences, Not Dreams


I often hear religious folks
talk about prophets and
prophecy. Usually such con-
versations end up in discus-
sions of what prophets see in
the future.
Prophesying about the fu-
ture will guarantee an au-
dience. That's because we
think that knowledge of the
future will help us make
profitable decisions, like the
insiders on Wall Street.
But foreknowledge doesn't
help. Consider all our friends
who still use tobacco, drink
and drive, drive without seat
belts, use drugs, and overeat.
Every modern person has


knowledge of the morbid
results of these behavior
patterns. But knowledge of
probable future suffering is
not enough to change life
styles.
The most important role of
the prophets, both in the
Bible and in the preset time,
is not the foretelling of future
events. Predicting the future
is better off in the hands of
those occult prophets, who
were busy making their
forecasts in the media as the
new year arrived.
The real reason that God
speaks through his prophets
is so that his people will have


reliable theological news
commentators. God wants us
to see the theological impact
of historic events.


God's will. For instance,
when the Assyrians came to
conquest Israel, it was not
simply the case of a more

powerful nation overpower-
ing a lesser country. Rather,
the Assyrians were instru-
ments of God as he encour-
aged his people to put down
their decadence and idolatry.
By the way, the idolatry they
practiced included horo-
scopes, seances, and fortune
telling.
In all this, God was not
destroying his people and
laying waste to their works.
He was cleansing them of sin.
And he was mercifully hold-
ing out the promise of a day
when "swords will be beat
into plowshares."
Biblical prophets also had
a tremendous sense of social
justice. To them, the cove-
nant with God makes the
believer responsible for jus-
tice and integrity. They
preached in favor of the
widow, the orphan, and the
stranger. Prophecy is packed
with God's condemnation of
those who substitute the
appearance of holiness for
justice and fair play. While at
the same time, blessings are
poured out on those who act
out of a concern for the needs
of others.

many gospel ministers have
learned, that message
doesn't draw large crowds,
and it doesn't always please
those who do come to hear it.
My new year's prayer is
that we who call ourselves
God's children will spend
more time living out pro-
phecy in the present tense,
and less time planning the
future. I pray that we will see
God's hand at work in the
world and in our lives. And I
also hope we will leave our
horoscope forecasts on the
comic page, where they
belong.


as well as those who followed
in the New Testament, all
preached that to serve God
one must care for strangers,
widows, orphans and the
needy.
Even when the prophets
did foretell the future, they
were writing in terms that
had a present tense meaning
for their contemporaries.
They wrote from their own
life experiences. From their
stance, they could not have
known that their inspired
words had the lofty meanings
which are clear to our
generation.
For instance, when David
wrote Psalm 22 he was
speaking poetically about his
own dilemma of being sur-
rounded by his enemy Saul,
and his armies. As he ex-
pressed his own feelings of
abandonment, fatigue, and
grief, he was also describing
the suffering of our Lord,
though he could not have
known it.
When Jesus foretells the
future in Matthew chapter 24
ahd following, he does it
without a timetable (see
verse 36). And in verse 42 he
even tells us why there is no
timetable. But it is not til
verses 45 and following that
he makes a theological com-
ment that explains the im-
portance of the prophecy.
The real message of pro-
phecy does not excite or
stimulate people the way
predictions of the future do.
Biblical prophecy is calling
God's people to see the
Lord's hand at work in
history, to live a holy life, to
care for the needy, and to live

More Expensive Foods Are Often High In Cholesterol and Fats


You could be paying more
for fatty, high cholesterol,
calorie heavy foods than you
are for hearty, healthy and
nutritious foods, according to
the American Heart Associ-
ation.
"Foods which claim the
biggest portion of your gro-
cery dollar are often actually
those highest in cholesterol
and saturated fat," notes Dr.
Richard Weddle, of the Bay
Unit of the American Heart
Association. These foods can
contribute to high blood
cholesterol levels and in-
crease your risk of develop-
ing cardiovascular disease."
The AHA advises consum-


ers to eat a well balanced diet
that includes selections from
all major food groups.
Choose lean meat, fish and
poultry in moderate portions,
low fat or non fat dairy
products, polyunsaturated
margarines and vegetable
oils, whole grains, fruits,
vegetables and nuts.
America's food stores are
supplying consumers' de-
mands for this variety of
healthy foods. You'll most
likely find them in your
favorite grocery store.
Saving food dollars is
based on many factors: what
foods you buy, where you live
and shop, how much time you


have to cook food and how
you plan your meals.
The American Heart Asso-
ciation offers these tips to
help you save food dollars:
Make a shopping list and
plan your weekly meals. You
should first check your pan-
try and refrigerator to find
out what items you're run-
ning out of and inventory
which foods you already have
in stock. Check the newspa-
per ads and store mailers to
see what foods are on sale-at
your favorite store (Wednes-
day papers also include
coupon supplements). It may
be helpful to place a star by
items on your list that you


have coupons for, so you
won't forget to look for the
particular products while in
the store. It's also a time-
saver to arrange your list in
the same order as food found
in the store. Plan to purchase
frozen and refrigerated foods
last.
While in the market, stick
to your shopping list to save
time and money. Buy in
quantity only if it saves you
money, if you like the pro-
duct, and if you serve it often
or can store it properly.
Comparison shopping can
also save you money. Store
brands may cost less than
national brands. You may

find additional savings by
comparing various forms of
the same food, such as
canned and frozen beans.
Coupons can only save you
money if they are for items
you really need. Be sure to
compare the usual and dis-
count price to be sure they
differ. Even with coupons
some brands may be more
expensive than other brands
of equal quality.
Cost per pound is not the
best way to consider meat,
poultry and fish purchases
since you're also paying for
skin, bone and fat. Consider
the amount of edible food
product versus price to find
the best buy. Look for "good"
or "standard" grades of
beef. They are the leanest
and contain more protein and
less fat than "prime" or
"choice" grades. Discover
better burgers by selecting
lean stew beef and lean
chuck roast and ask the
butcher to grind it or grind it
yourself. When the recipe
calls for chicken breasts,
buy less expensive chicken
parts.
Did you know that sliced,
cut or chopped frozen or
canned vegetables usually
cost less than their whole
counterparts? Individually
frozen vegetables in plastic
bags usually cost less per
serving than small packages
and you can cook only what
you need.
Learn the art of substitu-
tion. You can have your dairy
products and enjoy less fat,
too. Buy low fat buttermilk or
low fat yogurt instead of sour
cream-an expensive item,
high in saturated fat. Try
using low fat cottage cheese
for your recipes calling for
ricotta. You'll also save
money by purchasing sher-
bet or ice milk instead of ice
cream.
Fruit juice and tomato
juice are better buys than


soft drinks or alcoholic beve-
rages. Check the labels for
juices high in Vitamin C.
Day old bread is often a
bargain. Select bread that is
whole grain or enriched with.
B vitamins and iron.
Buy pasta in conventional
forms, such as spaghetti and
macaroni. Fancy shapes will
cost you more.
Sensible shoppers discover
they can save even more
money by purchasing indivi-
dual ingredients and making
their own prepared foods for
freezing and later cooking in
a stove or microwave. The
additional advantage is con-
trolling the quality and quan-
tity of ingredients by home
preparation.
"You can make small
changes in your shopping
strategy and save." indicates
Weddle. "You'll also be
taking a positive step in
reducing your risk of cardio-
vascular disease and
stroke."

You Can Minimize Freeze Damage to Your Plants

Being Alert for the Next Three Months Can Keep Injury to Tender Plants at An Acceptable Minimum


By Roy Lee Carter
Extension Agent
Although we haven't had
any severe cold weather this
winter, it doesn't mean we
won't have some during the
next three months. Through
thoughtful planning, you can
minimize freeze damage to
your landscape plants. Sur-
prising as it may sound,
location has a lot to do with
how well plants tolerate cold
weather.
Obviously, the most im-
portant factors determining
how badly a plant will be
damaged by cold weather
are how cold it gets, and how
long it stays cold. But we
shouldn't overlook the fact
that certain characteristics
of the planting site, and its
location within the overall
landscape, also affects the
degree of injury a plant will
receive during a freeze.
In deciding where to plant
a tender landscape ornamen-
tal, look for a spot with good


Catch the Spirit
( THE UNITED METHODIST CHURCH


air and water drainage. Air
drainage may sound like a
strange idea, but it makes
sense. We know that cold air
is heavier than warmer air.
You don't want to plant a
tender ornamental in a low
area where the coldest air
collects and settles. The
location should be open
enough to permit air move-
ment, buit also should be
protected from cold winds by
other plants, hedges, fences,
or similar barriers.

The Florida Highway Pa-
trol began enforcing the
State's Mandatory Seat Belt
Law on New Year's Day
according to FHP Director,
Colonel Bobby R. Burkett.
The Seat Belt Law passed
by the 1986 Florida Legisla-
ture, actually took effect on
July 1, 1986; however, a
six-month "Grace Period"
between July and December
was given prior to any
enforcement action being
permitted.
"We used the six-month
period to inform the motor-
ing public about the law, and
to help everyone develop the
"Buckle-Up Habit", said
Colonel Burkett.
"We have distributed bro-
chures, video tape material,
press releases, and instruct-
ed our troopers to remind
motorists individually of the
Seat Belt Law in order to
achieve a high compliance
rate. However, beginning
New Year's Day, 1987, those
who disregard the law may
be cited for noncompliance,"
Burkett added.
The law requires that
drivers and all front seat
passengers be restrained in a
seat belt system. Additional-
ly, the driver may be held
responsible for any front seat
passenger under 16 years of

FPC Rate

Reduction

In Effect
A $54 million dollar reduc-
tion in base rates for Florida
Power Corporation went into
effect on January 1, 1987.
~ 4! s reduction w11-6be* eea
as a monthly credit on
customer bills of $3.32 per
1000KWH. The improved eco-
nomy and new tax laws give
Florida Power the opportu-
nity to reduce base rates for
1987. At the end of the year,
these and other factors will
be reviewed by Florida Pow-
er and the Public Service
Commission.
Effective January 1, 1987,
residential electric bills will
be $69.47 1000KWH, placing
Florida Power rates among
the lowest in the state.

go dormant earlier in the fall,
and remain dormant longer
in the spring than plants in
the exposed locations. Plants

"There are many reasons
for wearing a seat belt, now
there is one more IT'S THE
LAW," concluded Burkett.


than actively growing plants.
So from a cold protection
standpoint, a location under
pint- or other trees that give
light shade would be prefer-
able for tender ornamentals
which don't need full sun.
Morning shade is particu-
larly important. Plants
which have been frozen will
obviously thaw more quickly
than plants which have


morning shade. For this
reason, plants on the north
and west sides of a house
usually will have less cold
damage than plants on the
east and south.
Finally do everything you
can to keep your landscape
plants in good condition all
year long. Healthy plants
resist cold damage, and snap
back after it occurs, much
better than unhealthy plants


which have already been
damaged by insects, diseases
or lack of fertilizer. To
reduce cold injury, plant
tender ornamentals in areas
with good water and air
drainage, and good air circu-
lation. But, avoid low plant-
ing spots and those exposed
to high winds. And most
importantly, maintain
strong, healthy plants
throughout the year.

Toll Free Helpline Aids the Elderly

National Eye Care Project Helps In Early Detection of Eye Diseases


Potentially blinding eye
disease can be treated effec-
tively if detected early, a fact
that 8173 elderly Florida
residents have discovered
through the National Eye
Care Project (NECP).
Volunteer Florida opthal-
mologists have uncovered:
1080 cases of cataracts, 100
cases of glaucoma, 233 cases
of macular degeneration,
and 44 cases of diabetic
retinopathy among elderly
Florida residents who have
called the toll-free Helpline -
1-800-222-EYES to receive
assistance through the
NECP.
The public service, which
offers medical eye care to the
disadvantaged elderly at no
out-of-pocket cost, is spon-
sored by the Florida Society
of Ophthalmology and the
Foundation of the American
Academy of Ophthalmology.
The NECP is available to
U.S. citizens or legal resid-
dents, age 65 or over, who are
not currently under the care
of an ophthalmologist, and
who have not seen one within
the past three years.
1 Since the Florida Helpline
opened on March 17, more


than 8173 residents have
called, resulting in more than
5295 referrals of elderly
patients to local volunteer
eye physicians for medical
examination and possible
treatment for sight-threaten-
ing eye diseases.
More than 140,000 elderly
Americans have called the
toll free Helpline number,
1-800-222-EYES, since the
project opened in January.
Amazingly, about 34 percent
of those examined by oph-
thalmologists report that
they had never before had a
comprehensive medical eye
examination. For another 20
percent, it had been more
than five years since their
last eye examination.
"We want elderly people to
know that failing eyesight in
their later years can be
prevented or lessened


through early diagnosis and
treatment," said Tully C.
Patrowicz, MD, president of
the Florida Society of Oph-
thalmology. "We are now
able to repair or even replace
certain parts of the eye by
using sophisticated surgical
tools and important new drug
therapies."
Periodic medical eye ex-
aminations are particularly
important, said Dr. Patro-
wicz, to detect potentially
blinding eye disease, such as
glaucoma, which has no
early warning signs. Nation-
wide, about 1,600 cases of
glaucoma have been diag-
nosed and treated through
the project.
After calling the toll-free
Helpline, an elderly person
will be mailed the name of a
volunteer oplithalmologist
who will treat the patient,


regardless of his or her
ability to pay, and who will
accept (for this project)
Medicare or insurance as-
signment as payment in full.
If hospital care is needed, the

ophthalmologist will work
with a local hospital to make
care available. Hospital
charges, eyeglasses and
prescription drugs are not
paid through the program.


More than 7,000 ophthalmo-
logists are participating in
the NECP. The Helpline is
open weekdays from 8 a.m.
to 5 p.m. in all states (except
Hawaii. 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.)


Army Sgt. Michael Jeffer-
son, son of Lenward and Cleo
E. Jefferson of. Rural Route
5, Henderson, N.C., has been

The award was presented
for exemplary conduct while
in the active service of the
United States.
Jefferson is a vehicle
mechanic with the 38th Sig-
nal Company.
His wife, Monette, is the
daughter of Lamar and Ber-
nice Speights of Port St. Joe.
