Ward Ridge Will


Try It Again

On March 10th
Ward Ridge City Commissioners took action Monday
night to call the citizens of that small community back to the
polls to express themselves, again, on the question of
whether or not to align the small incorporated city with the Ci-
ty of Port St. Joe.
Ward Ridge Mayor, Alan McCulley said Tuesday there
was no expressed opposition to the plan at their meeting Mon-
day and he felt sure the people of Ward Ridge would approve,
once more, dropping their charter of incorporation and ask to
be absorbed into the City of Port St. Joe.
Ward Ridge voted last October by a large majority to ask
for Port;St. Joe to accept them into the larger, city. An incor-
. rect description of the boundaries of Ward Ridge caused the
Coxiission there to decide to declare the election null and
voidif4v0te again, wilt the proerdescioptitphced
ballot.
"Nothing probably would ever be said about it, but .it's
best that it be done over correctly", Port St. Joe City At-
torney, William J. Rish told the Port St. Joe Board following
the round of voting. "If anyone becomes dissatisfied in the
future, they can always go back to the error to cause pro-
blems".
Mayor McCulley said,"I know the description is correct
this time around. I copied it myself, onto the election notice,
directly from the original charter. If it's wrong now, it has
always been wrong from the beginning".
McCulley and Commissioner Lewis Taylor are the only
remaining elected officials in Ward Ridge. Other officials
have either had their term expire or moved away. "With the
pending annexation vote, we saw no reason to elect other of-
ficials at'this time", McCulley said.
After Ward Ridge voters express themselves concerning
the annexation question on March 10-the date set for the
referendum by McCulley and Taylor-the question must then
be put before the voters of Port St. Joe whether or not they
will accept the residents of Ward Ridge as a part of their city.
Assuming Ward Ridge voters give the question their ap-
proval a second time, Port St. Joe voters will more than like-
ly face the question on the May municipal election ballot.


the City is notified when the condition oc-
curs, it can be bled out of the main and
returned to a normal clear color.
REACH AGREEMENT
Citizens Federal Savings and Loan
Association again requested the closing of
the alley between Williams and Long
Avenues, so the financial institution can ex-
pand its building and facilities.
The City has been reluctant to honor the
request until an agreement can be reached
for allowing the City continued access to a
sewer and water main which runs through
the alley. Citizens Federal management has
agreed to allow the City access to the pro-
perty in the future to make any needed
repairs and would move the water main at
Citizens Federal's expense in the future,
should the firm need to build a building over
the area now occupied by the water main. It
was determined the building would not in-
vade the space occupied by the sewer main.
The City agreed to close the alley f(r the
length of the Citizens Federal property as


soon as the agreement could, be put in
writing and signed by both parties.
Citizens Federal has plans to nearly
double the size of its headquarters here.
EXAMINE POLICY *
Police officer Benny Tiller asked that
several of his fellow officers be allowed to
contribute a portion of their sick leave to
him since he has used his accumulated time
and is still unable to return to work as the
result of a condition he suffered recently.
Mayor Frank Pate said he had advised
Tiller to bring his request to the Commission
since it was his recollection the Commission
had agreed a few months ago to discontinue
the practice of giving away sick leave
because the privilege had been abused by
some employees in the past.
Commissioner Roberts said he didn't
remember the action Pate was speaking of,
but he thought the practice could be con-
tinued under certain circumstances. "We

DOT Bringing Bridge

Plans to Show Citizens
The Florida Department of Transportation revealed this
week they would conduct a public hearing early in March,
concerning the new Highland View bridge replacement.
The hearing has been scheduled for Thursday, March 5
at 7:00 p.m., in the Highland View Elementary School.
According to William M. Phillips, who is in charge of the
public hearing program for the project, the hearing will af-
ford local citizens an opportunity to express their views con-
cerning location of the bridge, design concepts and possible
environmental-effects of the new bridge construction.
The DOT will present its progress in the bridge planning,
stage, thus far, and field any questions from local citizens
which might be presented at the hearing. Maps, drawings:
and environmental documents will also be available at the.
hearing for inspection by anyone who is interested in them.'
Persons desiring to have their views considered, may ex-
press themselves in writing or orally at the hearing meeting.

Fire Destroys Shed and Contentsr


Fire completely destroyed an
equipment and utility shed behind the
home of Robert Nobles on Garrison
Avenue Saturday afternoon.
According to fire department
spokesmen, the blaze was discovered
about 2:30 p.m. by neighbors and the
alarm turned in. "The entire shed was
blazing away and consumed by flames


when we arrived," fireman Mark Col-
lier said. Collier was standing in for
chief Brent Etheredge, who was out of
'town at the time of the fire.
Collier said Nobles had some meat
cooking in a smoker outside beside the
shed and took off a few minutes to haul
some yard debris to the landfill area.
When he got back, the shed was burn-


ing. "The only thing we can assume is
that the fire started, somehow, from the
meat smoker", Collier said.
The shed contained considerable
valuable pieces of equipment, such as
electrical supplies, two lawn mowers,
an air compressor and ai number of
tools. "All of the contents of the
building were destroyed", Collier said.

Students Witness Board Meeting


The Gulf County School Board
gave students at Port St. Joe High
School a sampling of what goes in
their meetings Tuesday of this week,
when they conducted the regular
February meeting of the Board in
the Media Center of the school.
Members of the Senior Class
were in attendance at the meeting,
and witnessed the manner in which
school business is handled and mat-


ters introduced for action.,
School Superintendent, Walter
Wilder, said the board meets in both
high schools in the county at least
once a year in order to acquaint the
students with Board procedure.
At Tuesday's meeting, the
School Board took care of routine
school operational business matters,
including a small change order for
work at the new Wewahitchka


Elementary School, several person-
nel matters and heard reports from
several committees regarding
school management activities.
The students didn't witness
many earth-shattering items on the
agenda, but they did see, first hand,
how it takes a lot of time just to
decide how a dollar is spent or which
bus is replaced and other routine
operations of a school system.


Scout Troo
Boy Scout Troop 47 will soon be
reactivated in the Port St. Joe area, ac-
cording to James T. McNeill, III, chair-
man of the Boy Scout committee for the
Port St. Joe Rotary Club.
The Rotary Club, which has spon-
sored Scouting in Port St. Joe for 45
years, has adopted a project of re-
juvenating the scout troop after it has
been in limbo for more than a year,
because of lack of leadership.

President Reagan sent the
news media into gyrations last
Tuesday night, trying to down-
.grade his statements, his proposals
and his accomplishments after his
::i.State of the Union address to
Congress. Obviously the President
was feeling fit and he was in fine
'physical and mental shape for a
:.:man who has seen his 76th
birthday.

both the Senate and House have

:::a bed of roses; nor is his future
.likely to be smooth as silk. But it's

i::President Reagan will still main-

something which might work and
then admit failure when it doesn't.
We still must remember that
old saying that the only one who
doesn't do anything wrong is che
person who doesn't do anything.
As for the budget deficits, it's
common knowledge in this land of
ours that there have been precious
few balanced budgets in these
United States since the early 1940's.
The President did call for a
Constitutional amendment requir-
ing balanced budgets in the future.
A few years back, such an idea was
coming to life, bat for the past few
years, it has largely been dormant.
We believe its time has come
and it took a President some
castigate as being bumbling, to
come up with a solution to our
fiscal woes.
As for the Iranian arms sale;
nobody likes dealing with Iran-in-
cluding President Reagan. Nobody
likes having to shore up an army in
Nicaragua, but these are the facts
of life in these times.
Again we give the President
credit for at least Boing something,
even if it does turn out to be a sour
deal. At least he didn't stand
around wringing his hands.
We don't claim President Rea-
gan is perfect or that every
decision he makes is the correct
one. It has never been so with a
President and probably never will
be in the future. The fact that he
seems to be doing his job simply
because he loves his country makes
him stand tall in our sight.

Hunker Down with Kes



Come to Think of It Maudie

Looked A Little Like Abe


by Kesley Colbert-.


I've been trying to think of
something significant that
we could talk about today
concerning the month of
February. I'm having kind
of a hard time you know
what I mean? I dated a girl
once that had a birthday in
February, but, for the life of
me, I can't think of her


name. Mary E. Pendleton,
who I can assure you I never
dated, kind'a ruined the
month for me years ago
'cause she'd always send me
a valentine card and every-
body in grade school would
laugh at me for weeks. I
haven't been big on Valen-
tine's Day or for that matter


the month of February since
the second grade.
Of course, February in the
first, second, third and
fourth grade is when you
discover that George Wash-
ington had a long nose and
Abraham Lincoln had an
even longer face. Now, you
came to this rather startling


realization as you cut out
your silhouette of Washing-
ton's and Lincoln's head. I
knew silhouette cutting-out
wasn't my niche in life early
in my career. In the first
grade I cut off George's nose
and trimmed old Abe's
beard a mite short. Miss
Carolyn took one look at my


Something!


As A Painter, I Would Make A Good Example of What Not to Do


ONE OF THE THINGS I do the
worst is paint. Some people just love
to daub and smear paint on objects
and will spend hours at the chore
when the need arises.
I don't. In the first place, I don't
have the special patience it takes to
take my time and put the paint on in
even stokes, prepare the surface or
stir the paint as long as it needs.
I guess the reason Io don't paint
very well is because I don't paint very
often.
Our house is mostly brick outside,
so there isn't much painting to do. The
real painting is up high where ladders
are needed and with my brittle legs.
I'm not going to climb a ladder very
high and risk falling. So, I don't do
very much painting.
Frenchie says I'm color blind,
just because I have a little; trouble
matching colors. I admit to being a
little bit careless (for want of a better
word) about what color I should use in
a given situation, but I don't think I'm
really color blind. For instance, a
green light is green to me, and a red
one is red. All the shades in between
are either green or red until one color


or the other predominates.
For instance, chartreuse is green
to me. Magenta is red, and so on. I'm
not a color shade purist when it comes
to names.

ETA OIN SHRDLU

SBy: Wesley R. Ra


I WAS HACKING around out on
the carport last week and built a
couple of shelves and cabinets for the
utility room and down here at the
office and I set out to get them painted
when I had finished.
Of course, the weather for the
past week hasn't been really condu-
cive to standing out on an open
carport and smearing paint. It's been
freezing, raining, cold, blustery and


But, in spite of it all, the paint job
on the shelves came along nicely

Then came the final coat Thurs-
day. Final coats have to be better than

I (GOT' ST.ATEDI with my prime
coat Saturday afternoon and got the
prime coat on everything-including
me. When I went to Sunday School
Sunday morning, I was well primed
around the hands and arms.
The floor of the carport is more of
a polka-dot pattern now and there is a
spot or two on some plants which had
been brought in out of the cold.


prime coats. The brush strokes all
have to be in a constant direction and
one has to be more particular with the
thickness of the paint when it's final
coating time
Anyhow, I started about 6:00
Thursday. and here we went.
There were three free-standing
shelves and a cabinet I had to smear
before supper time.
I can't explain it to you in 100
words or less, but did you ever try to


figure out how to make three shelves
stand on edge by themselves, while
you applied paint to both sides?
I got it done with the aid of a
Rube Goldberg contraption I had
rather people not see.
With the cabinet. I laid it down,
front side up, and set to work painting
inside and outside without having to
move the thing.
I don't know if that is how other
people paint things or not, but I
couldn't see painting one side, waiting
for it to dry and then flipping it to
paint the other side.
If I did more painting, I would
probably know an easier way to go
about it. As Jesse said last week, when
he was writing for his dad, I tried to do
it the simple way.
Still, doing it the simple way, I
needed a bib, an apron, a pair of
gloves and a half-acre drop cloth
to keep the paint off me and the
surrounding area. It's just a good
thing Frenchie was gone with the car.
or it would probably be another color
today.
The dog started to keep me
company while I painted, but even she


left after paint spattered in her eye for
the second time.
I GOT THE JOB done, you
understand, but in addition to three
off-white shelves and a cabinet, I also
have:
-A satsuma tree in a can, waiting
to be planted, permanently, which is
off-white and green.
-A table saw which has spots and
patches of off-white.
-A shirt which formerly had light
brown stripes in it, but which now
have them only on the back.
-A box of rags which are
liberally patched with off-white areas,
-A white cat.
-Two stiff brushes.
-A set of white saw horses.
-Four milk cartons which are
sort of a brindled pattern now.
-A pair of piebald posts holding
up the roof.
-Two stirring sticks stuck to my
work table on the carport.
-A white sink in the utility room
where I washed out my brushes.
-And, a white-tipped screw
driver.

LETTERS
to the Editor:
Grateful for
Community
Dear Editor:
As a rather new pastor in
Port St. Joe, I feel compelled
to express some of my deep
feelings about my new home
town..
Last week there was a call
for help and the events that
followed overwhelmed me.
In a day that seemed so
cold and uncaring and unin-
volved in so many ways, it is
with great pride I want to say
"I'm proud to be part of this
small but generous town that
has such a big heart." Money
came from every area, the
business community was fan-
tastic, the churches respond-
ed well and individuals gave.
Also there were those who
gave their time to go out and
solicit money. The response
was almost unbelievable.
People really do care here
and people can make such a
difference.
The Vernon Blankenship
family is so grateful for all
the help and support they
received. However, they are
not the only ones who re-
ceived help. I received such a
lift in my spirit I'm not sure
that I will ever get over.

P/t" by Wendell Campbell



A Few Things About Trucks
ONE DAY LAST WEEK I was at a local super-
market and saw a lady trying to get five hundred
dollars worth of groceries into her car along with five
screaming children and her purse.
My first thought was, "That lady needs a truck; a
big truck!"
THE FIRST SINGLE date I had was in a pick-up
truck. I didn't plan it that way not by a long shot but
my brother wanted to use his car [just because he
bought and paid for it] andl was stuck with the truck.
When I brought my date out and she saw what I
was driving, she almost backed out on me. As a matter
of fact, she asked her father if we could use his car. He
took one long look at me and said, "Over my dead
body!" I desperately wanted to help his body reach
that state, but life's priorities have their order. It had
been hard work getting that date.
Anyway, I hated trucks. I hated trucks for a long
time after that, too. I associated trucks with country
life and hard work and, atthat time in my life, I was
trying to get away from both.
ISN'T IT STRANGE how time changes things and
people? If I had my way today, I wouldn't drive
anything but a truck, date or no date.
Today, to a lot of folks,; a truck is a status symbol.
Trucks are also very convenient. If the lady at the
supermarket had had at truck, she would have had lit-,
tle problem with the groceries in the front of the bed of
the truck, she could have let the tailgate down and the
children could have sat on the gate, dangling their little
tootsies over the back and she could have set her purse
on top of the cab and went merrily on her way.
Her purse wouldn't hake fit into the cab. Anybody
that buys that many'groceries has to carry a big purse.
I LEARNED TO drive in a pick-up truck. I didn't
have a driver's license. As a matter of fact, I didn't
even have a learner's perinit. Neither did my older
brother who taught me to drive.-The reason was I was
ten years old and he was fourteen. He had been driving
about three years.
Our truck was a very old Ford and had one of those
floor shifts with three forward gears and one reverse.
For about the first fifty times I took off, I tried to shift
from first gear into reverse. Shifting into reverse while
going forward is not the best thing to do to an old Ford
truck, and it makes one heck-of-a noise.
After I had mastered the art of shifting gears, I
tackled the job of stopping the truck at stop signs and
taking.off without giving my brother and I whiplash.
When I would take off, the'truck would start bucking
like a wild horse and I couldn't stop it. My brother
would holler, "Put the clutch in! Put the clutch in!"
When I pushed the clutch in, the truck would be go-
ing so slow that it would stall. Second gear wasn't
strong enough to get it moving again.
When it came to stopping, I would either stop too
far back from the stop sign and have to shift from low
gear to reverse again, or I would wait until it was too
alate;toopply the brakes and ryn intothe middle of-the
, fin te .ec t .a ... .& -- .- -. .. .'
It was quite an experience, learning to drive!
TRUCKS ARE MUCH different today. They ride as
well or better than most passenger cars. Trucks are
more convenient than cars except when there are four
or more passengers. Most people today don't want to
ride in the back, especially if it's raining or cold. You
can't please everybody. I
One day, before too long, I'm going to buy me a
dark blue, full-size, long bed pick-up. It will have power
steering and brakes, a cruise control and an AM/FM
stereo radio with a tape deck. With that I can listen to
Hank Williams and Patsy Cline anytime I want to.
*'* *
THE ONLY THING I regret is they don't put run-
ning boards on trucks anymore. It's hard to knock the
dirt off your feet without a running board. Either way,
a truck is a truck is a trucks!

Two people were taken by

of Fifth Street and Highway

According to Mexico

OTHER BUSINESS
In other items of business:

and approaching ramp had been poured and
that additional work was progressing very


work determined to turn out
a decent looking silhouette of
our February presidents. As
you might expect Betsy Din-
widdie and Maudie Mallard
finished their work before I
could trace my first outline.
I always had trouble getting
a good, clear line to show up
on that black paper. As they
moved back to their seats I
overhead Maudie saying,
"Wasn't that exciting!"
She was serious, too. I
thought I was going to be
sick. I was the last person to
finish it took me about two
hours. I explained to some of
the guys that I didn't feel so
good today. I also didn't
have a very good pair of scis-
sors. The small rings that
you put your fingers through
got to cutting into the skin. I
had marks around my
thumb and first finger for
days. But listen, this all
might be worth the effort
'cause in my humble opinion
I was turning in a good look-
ing silhouette cut-out of
George Washington and Ab-
raham Lincoln. Miss Booth
studied my work for a
minute and said, "This one
here looks an awful lot like
Calvin Coolidge."
By the third grade I was
better prepared for Feb-
ruary. As Miss Belle began
to pass out the construction
paper I jumped up and said,

stead of cutting silhouettes,
let's go out and cut down a
cherry tree and split some
rails."
Miss Belle was a nice lady
and a good teacher but I
don't think she was the out-
doors type. I had to switch to
alternate plan B. I told
Maudie I'd give her my mag-
net if she would cut out my
picture for me. She wasn't
into magnets. I told her I'd
give her my peanut butter
and banana sandwich. She
grabbed the black construc-
tion paper right out of my
hand and went to work in
earnest. I had hit upon
something there that Maudie
could relate to. Those were
thd best silhouette cut-outs
that I ever handed in. It was
a high water February for
me.
Years later I finally got
my first look at Calvin
Coolidge. You know, if you
hold up his picture in the,
right light he looks a lot
: like George Washington.

Fishing

(Continued from Page 2)
you are going to have laws
why not enforce them instead
of adding new ones. It is very
frustrating for honest, law
abiding fishermen.
A few weeks ago two young
men tried to sell untagged
bag oysters. Knowing the law
and of the health danger, I
refused.
Enforce the laws you al-
ready have. We don't need
new ones. Not everyone
coming to Florida wants fun,
sun, partying and drinking.
Fishing is a fine family sport
and the reason a lot of
families choose Florida for
their vacation.
I believe you will lose tax
revenue when the tourists
choose to go elsewhere be-
cause regulations on fisher-
men get stricter and license
fees are changed when fish
limits are so low. Please no
salt water license.
Come on Florida residents
let's voice our opinion. Let
our law makers hear from
us! We need our tourists and
don't want to lose a one of
them.
Sincerely,
Bennie J. Hunter

Reunited with
Lost Family
On January 24, 1987 Mrs.
Alice Addison Griffin of
Detroit. Michigan was reuni-
ted in Wewahitchka with her
brothers, Albert, Emerson,
Billy and Zebedee Addison,
and sisters, Margaret Addi-
son Fisher and Dorothy
Addison Bolden.
Alice left .Dalkieth when
she was 12 years old to get
married. In the next 45 years
she wrote to her hometown
numerous times but the
letters came back. She lost
contact with her relatives as
they had moved to Blounts-
town. The house Alice lived
in burned down destroying
all the mailing addresses of
her relatives.
Recently her ex-husband,
Gene came back to Wewa-
hitchka to a funeral and
inquiries from her brother,
Albert, led to tracking her
down "through their first
child's phone number. Upon
hearing from her family
again, Alice flew to the area
where they were reunited
again.

Chiropractic
Outlook

SLIPPED DISC
Diagnosis: slipped disc.
Or, a protrusion of the
soft center of a disc from
between two vertrebrae.
You are not alone. This is
one of the most serious
mechanical disturbances
commonly occurring in the
spine.
Basically, in the herni-
ated disc, the gel-like
center bulges into the sur-
rounding rings. This bulg-
ing causes pressure on
the spinal nerves, result-
ing in shooting pains.
The doctor of chiro-
practic concentrates on
skillful restoration of the
displaced vertrebrae to
reduce the stress and
pressure on the spinal
discs. Chiropractic spinal
management may lessen
the possibility of costly
hospitalization, un-
necessary surgery and
considerable pain.

Maybe ten or twenty years ago those words struck fear

this no longer is the case, for modern day dentistry is
really easier to take. One important reason is the

The Association for Com-
munity Action is soliciting
the community's support in
observing Black History
Month. The observance be-
gan Sunday with the Ushers
Union of North Port St. Joe
paying tribute to the occa-
sion. They are planningall of
the activities to reflect the
national theme.
The national theme for
February 1987 is: "The Afro-
American and the Constitu-
tion Colonial Times to the
Present." This is a fitting
theme because the Afro-
American segment of the
population, does in" fact,
deserve recognition for their
contributions and achieve-
ments throughout the ages
which helped to make the
United States the great na-
tion that it is.
Likewise, the reasoning
underlying this time of
adulation and praise can be
traced as far back as the
Declaration of Independence
that states: "We hold these
truths to be self evident:
That all men are created
equal; that they are endowed
by their Creator with certain
unalienable rights; that
among these are life, liberty
and the pursuit of happi-
ness." As a result, in' an
effort to fulfill the quest for a
wholesome, worthwhile exis-
tence, many black Amer-
icans have striven untiringly
to produce goods and ser-
vices second to none. Their
impact spans every area of
our daily lives whether it is a
mundane tool as the pencil


sharpener invented by Ben-
jamin Bannaker, a life sav-
ing scientific discovery of
preserving blood plasma by
Dr. Charles Drew, or crea-
tive writings in the arts by
Langston Hughes. The
"Fountding Fathers"''
and the Association for the
Study of Negro Life and
History concur that Afro-
Americns have the right to be
successful.
Not only does the introduc-
tion to the Articles of Confed-
eration (the forerunner of the
Constitution) imply there
should be positive involve-
ment in the areas of eco-
nomics, politics, education,
public housing and creative
expression, but several
amendments speak to the
issues also. Some of the most
explicit amendments are:
-The 13th, forbidding sla-
very, 1865.
-The 14th, Restrictions on
states, 1868.
-The 15th, Negroes rights
to vote, 1870.
-The 24th, outlawed poll
taxes in national elections,
1964.
-The voting rights act that
closed loopholes, 1965.
-The civil rights law that
made it a federal offense for
interfering with, injuring, or
intimidating anyone because
of his engagement in certain
protected activities, 1967.
Throughout this month
everyone is encouraged to
join in the celebration. Take
this opportunity to enjoy
while learning about the
heritage of a great race of
people.

Gardeners, Check Your Soil Needs

A Competent Test Could be Difference Between Success and Failure


By: ROY LEE CARTER
Extension Agent
A soil test could spell the
difference between success
and failure for these planning
a spring vegetable. garden.
All to often, gardeners as-
sume and application of
fertilizer and a helping of
lime is just what the doctor
ordered for a bountiful har-
vest. This might be the case
for some gardens. But, for
others those steps, could lead
to trouble and unnecessary
expense. A soil test is the
only way to determine your
garden's exact needs.
A soil test can be an
invaluable guide for home
vegetable gardeners. It will
indicate the soil's content of


available nitrogen, phospho-
rus, potassium, calcium and
magnesium. Also it will
determine the soil's pH, the
degree of acidity. By analyz-
ing the results, a soil techno-
logist (County Agent or gar-
den center operator) can
recommend the liming and
fertilizing practices that will
produce the best growing
conditions.
The first step is taking a
soil sample, which is rela-
tively easy. Check with your
County Extension office con-
cerning sampling bags, tools,
and testing services. Using a
sampling auger, or a shovel,
take cores of soil four to six
inces deep from at least 15
different spots in your gar-

den. Avoid unusual areas,
such as wet spots and burned
piles. Thoroughly mix these
cores together to make on
representative sample.
Place this mixture in a
sampling bag, complete the
accompanying information
sheet, place the soil and
information in the box, and


deliver the sample for test-
ing.
The soil pH, indicated by
the test, will determine the
need for lime. Most vegeta-
bles grow best in a soil pH
between five-point-five 15.5)
and six-point-five (6.5) a
level that's slightly acid, or
sour. A pH of seven is
neutral and, seven-point-one
or above is alkaline, or
"sweet". If a test indicates
your garden soil is too acid,
the laboratory probably will
recommend an application of
lime to reduce soil acidity.
Carefully follow the labor-
atory's recommendations
concerning the amount of
lime to add. Too much may
be just as bad as too little. Be
sure you allow enough-time
to add the lime before
planting. Dolomite is a good
liming agent. But; because if
reacts slowly, it should be
applied two or three months
prior to planting. If you're in


a hurry, use hydrated lime. It
can be applied only two
weeks before planting, pro-
vided it's thoroughly mixed
with the soil.
Although a soil test pro-
vides vital information on
fertilization and liming,
there's a lot it won't reveal.
For example, a soil test
doesn't show the presence of
insects. nematodes, or dis-
ease organisms. It can't
determinewhether your gar-
den is too wet or too dry. So
'it's just part of a sound
management program. You
also must choose the proper
crop varieties, buy, good
seed, plant at the right time,
water properly, and control
pests and diseases.
Reviewing briefly, 'a soil
test will indicate the relative
amount of nitrogen, phospho-
rus, potassium, calcium, and
magnesium in your garden
plot, as well as the pH level.


You can use this information
to determine how much of a
particular analysis fertilizer,
and the quantity of lime if
any to apply. Taking a soil
sample is a simple process
you can perform yourself,
with advice from your Coun-
ty Extension office. But
remember, a soil test is no
substitute for sound manage-
ment. It's just one of the
basic steps along the path to
a successful vegetable gar-
den. However, it is an
important step, and one that
should be taken well in
-advance of planting time. So.
if in doubt, get your sample
to the testing laboratory as
soon as possible.

The text of Martinez's
proclamation reads:
"Whereas diseases of the
heart and blood vessels this
year will kill almost one
million Americans, which
nearly equals the total num-
ber of deaths from all other
causes combined, and
"Whereas, nearly 200,000
of these victims die before
retirement age, and
"Whereas, the American
Heart Association is the only
voluntary health agency
whose sole mission is to
reduce early death and dis-
ability from heart disease,
stroke and related disorders,
and
"Whereas, the American
