Take Dam Out
Removing Dead Lakes Dam Piling May
be In Progress As Early As Wednesday
Four years after the voters of Gulf and Calhoun
counties cast a straw ballot asking that the Dead Lakes
Dam be removed, its destruction is imminent.
Merrit Marine Construction company of Lynn Haven
moved equipment in on the site over the week end and
started cutting larger chunks off the sheet piling Monday in
order to lower the lakes faster, so work could
begin-possibly as early as Wednesday morning-on
actually snatching the steel sheets out of their location in
the river bottom.
The Northwest Florida Water Management District
office in Havana called The Star Tuesday morning to report
the piling removal would begin in just a few days since
'A barge-mounted crane is shown lifting
chunks of sheet steel piling from the Dead
Lakes Dam. The removal of the sheets Is enlarging the
drain-off outlet for the Dead Lakes, so water pressure on
, each side of the dam will be equalized.
water levels on both sides were nearing the point where
piling removal could begin. Monday, Merrit Marine started
cutting huge chunks off the piling so the water could recede
even faster. Tuesday afternoon, approximately 80 lineal
feet of the dam had been chopped off up to eight feet deep to
allow the water to run out faster.
construction firm managers could not be contacted prior to
this issue of The Star, it has been learned he expects to have
the job completed within two weeks after actual removal
starts. If this information is correct, the dam should be out
by December 10.
Jim Bozeman, a former member of the Dead Lakes
Water Management District, told The Star yesterday the
water is running out of the lakes now at a rapid rate. One of
the delays in getting the work underway was in waiting for
water pressures to equalize on both sides of the structure.
Heavy rains recently caused even more delays since more
water was coming down the Chipola River than was
running out the drawdown structure and lowering devices
which had been cut in the dam.
Bozeman said, just after noon Tuesday, "I just left the
dam after talking with the contractor and he said he is
going to get the job done just as fast as possible. He plans to
start pulling piling tomorrow (Wednesday) and will
proceed at as rapid a pace as possible. He has his
machinery set in place and each extra day it sits there it is
costing him money, so he will proceed with all possible
According to Bozeman's report and that of the
Northwest Florida Water Management headquarters, the
actual removal should be underway before the week is out.
Supporters of having the dam removed claimed the
structure was killing the lakes for sport fishing and
mounted a tenacious campaign to have it taken out.
Gulf Sends Load to Incinerator
Gulf County transported its first
load of solid waste to the Bay County
incinerator this week, according to
Mosquito Control Department super-
visor, Sa&b Graves, Jr.
Graves said the initial load went
out from the south Gulf County
compactor Monday morning; the first
of two loads for the day.
Graves said, "This operation is
going to cost the county some money.
I don't have the official billing on that
first load yet, but the truck driver told
me he saw the ticket being made out
and the charge for that first load was
S$211.00". Graves said preliminary
estimates are that Gulf County will be
transporting approximately three
loads every two days to the incinera-
tor. "Some days we will have to make
two trips and I feel there will be times
when we will need to make three",
"They have strict limits on what
they will accept at that incinerator",
Graves said. "They won't allow any
metals or items such as car batteries,
which wouldtleave a hazardous meMTls
residue or bulky items. We must crush
the material taken in and separate all
the items they won't handle", Graves
The supervisor said his depart-
ment is going to have to have the
cooperation of the people in keeping
such items as paint cans, chemical
containers, etc., out of their household
garbage deposits. "It would help us a
lot if they would just dump such
articles in a garbage bag separate
from their other waste", Graves said.
In the meantime, the Gulf County
service is doing some separation of
waste matter to remove unacceptable
items from what is hauled to the
ALL SOUTH COUNTY WASTE
All waste from south of the
Howard Creek Road is being trans-
ported first to the compacting station
near Port St. Joe and then trucked on
to the incinerator, Items not accepted
by the incinerator is being sent to the
Steelfield Road landfill site in Bay
"We're gathering up all solid
waste from Port St. Joe, White City,
Howard Creek, Indian Pass and the
Beaches and Overstreet to take to the
incinerator", Graves said.
All other solid waste collected in
the county still goes to the Buckhorn
landfill site near the Gulf-Calhoun
"We're sending all the solid waste
we're permitted, to the Five Points
Class III site", Graves said.
So, at least for the time being,
Gulf County has its solid waste
Bearden Says Scout Day Success
Port St. Joe's first Scout Day was
an unqualified success, according to
Bob Bearden, Boy Scout master, who
put the special day together along
( with 9ob Williams, who initiated the
"We had at least 400 people there,
and many of them were young people,
the ages we're trying to attract into
the scouting program here in Port St.
J6e", Bearden said.
"Considering the many last min-
ute changes we had to make in
location for the event and personnel to
conduct the different operations of the
special day, we did all right. We react
good here in Port St. Joe", he said.
Bearden said his committee had
figured they would have a successful
operation if they just broke even in the
expense department, "but we made
some money", Bearden said.
The special day was to draw
attention of adults and youth alike to
the re-birth of a full scouting program
here in Port St. Joe after a couple of
years of being in the doldrums. Fish
dinners and oysters on the halfshell
were the attraction for the adults and
displays of U.S. Coast Guard helicop-
ters and crash boats were attractions
to the young people.
The whole operation was held at
Raffield Fisheries on the Gulf County
Canal last Friday afternoon.
"We'll know which direction to go
S in next year in order to attract who we
want to attract and avoid as many
foul-ups as possible", Bearden said.
Bearden said he and his commit-

"It was great!" Bearden said.

Overstreet Bridge Half Finished
Most of the support columns are
up and the framework is being put in
place on the new highrise bridge at
Overstreet this week.
The bridge, spanning the Inter-
coastal Waterway at Overstreet, was
started a year ago this month and is
right on schedule, according to Dave
Fiero, public relations director for the
Department of Transportation in
Chipley. Fiero said the $6.1 million
project is scheduled to be completed
in September of next year.
Fiero said the construction pro-
ject is now 52 percent complete, with
53 percent of the contract time
elapsed. "The actual work on the
bridge is right on schedule", accord-
ing to Fiero.
All of the supports on the south
side of the Waterway are complete
and contractors are presently laying
the beams across the supports which
will be the foundation for the roadway
portion of the new bridge.
Some supports on the north side of
the Waterway are still incomplete, but
rapidly reaching the finished stage.
Earth embankment approaches
leading to the bridge are in place and
being allowed to settle.

Man Faces Series of Rabies
Shots If Cat Is Not Found
for Our Many Blessings
This is the week when we recall the many ways in which
God has blessed us as individuals, families, communities and as
a nation. Today is the day we do that officially, as a nation. We
should celebrate Thanksgiving on a personal level every single
day of the year.
More than likely you have been asked at least a dozen
times, "What are you most thankful for"?
There are so many reasons for us to be thankful that it's
actually hard to answer that question. Being thankful as an
American should come as second nature to us all. We are
probably one of the few nationalities in the world which has so
much to be thankful for we have a hard time singling out the one
thing uppermost on our list.
Still, with this particular emphasis this week, we have a few
individuals in this nation who are always uptight about some of
the things we hold most precious in counting our blessings.
One of these, of course, is our unashamed dependence on
God, both as a nation and as individuals. As a Christian, we're
not ashamed to mention 'God' in public, nor are we hesitant
about including him in our everyday activities. As a nation,
we're still adamant about keeping 'In God We Trust' on our
currency and in other areas.
We're just thankful (there's that word again) that we live in
a nation where we are still allowed-not required, but-
allowed-to include God in our everyday activities.
Thanksgiving had a beginning because a people felt they
should thank God for having spared their lives and provided for
them. So, even our unique holiday had its roots sustained by the
.desire to thank God for being a very vital part of our lives.
Perhaps, one day, there will be somebody who will file suit
to strike Thanksgiving from the list of national holidays on the
premise that it is a welding together of church and state. In the
meantime, we're mighty glad Thanksgiving and its worshipful
overtones still survives in this land of the free. So long as it
does, against the attacks being made against anything
pertaining to an expression of filiality toward God, we can still
refer to our nation as the home of the brave ... and be thankful
Excited About the Prospects
Appointing a committee to come up with suggestions on
how to beautify our city seems like a good idea to us. For
several years, now, we have been in the business of trying to
cajole, shame, threaten, plead and generally beg our people to
keep every part of our city neat and clean.
There are a good many of our citizens who are just as
interested in this accomplishment, but, ruefully, there are
enough who do not care one bit about our facade to manage an
unkepmt appearance for too much of our city.
Esthetics do not seem to be high on the list of favorite things
for some people, so the rest of us must pay for cleaning up their
mess or force ourselves to live with it.
Personally, we're glad those in authority are tired of living
We're excited about the prospects of this committee and
what it can mean to our town. We ho&je you-are too, and that you
will cooperate when you are called upon.
Libraries Reflect Our Nation
It would be a tragedy almost as great in magnitude as
losing our religious freedom, if we were to lose our public
library. Reduction of services would be a tragedy in direct
proportion as to the number of services we had to do without.
We remember living in Port St. Joe when there was no
public library. We remember when there was very little to
resemble a library even in our public schools. In that
environment, there was a strong hunger here for library
George Will said the other day that if President Reagan
wanted to show Premiere Gorbachev why America is great
while he is visiting here, the President should just take him to
visit one of our public libraries. You see, other than being just a
storehouse of knowledge, they also reflect the nature of our
nation and our society.
They are that important. Let's keep ours.

This Epistle Comes
FROM the Editor
All of us fail to express our
appreciation at times, but we're not
going to let this be one of those times.
Ever since 1943, if there has been
a generation of Ramsey's going to
high school, there has been at least
one or more playing in the band.
Naturally, this has generated an
intense interest in the band's welfare
over the years, an interest which we
have supported in one way or another
continuously since that time.
The first of the year, we asked
Lamar Weathermon, band director, if
the band could play us just one march
before the football season was over...
just for old time's sake, you know.
Weathermon promised to play the
march and prior to the football game
Friday night, he lined them up on the
field and played the refrain from "The
Stars and Stripes Forever". After the
performance he said, "There's your
march, I hope you enjoyed it".
I did, Lamnar, I did!

I'll Enjoy What Little I Eat On Thanksgiving Day
WHILE YOU ARE reading this
blurb this week, I'm going to have my
feet planted firmly under my mother-
in-law's dinner table, enjoying the
fruits of her larder and the-culinary
ability of her friend, confidant and
egnstant watchguard, "Black Mary"..
We must refer to her as "Black
Mary" because there are so many
other Mary's in the family and close
friends that it is necessary to give
each an identifying label if it is fully
understood who we are talking about.
This particular Mary has been in the
family for about 30 years, now, and
has reached the plateau of being the
reason for many good things happen-
ing. What started out as an employee-
employer relationship has now grad-
uated into a full friendship which
adopts "Black Mary" into our family
and our family into the family of
She is an unusual person and loves
to fish almost as much as she enjoys
fussing over our mother-in-law.
My mother-in-law is now in her
80's and she isn't much larger than a
12-year-old child. She is still just as
vigorous as a 12-year-old child and
sometimes just as stubborn in regard
to doing what she needs to do, but
doesn't particularly want to, if you
know what I mean.
WHEN FRENCHIE AND I go to
the Macon, Georgia area to visit with
her mother, "Black Mary" just goes
wild at the cook stove. She is a past
master at making a delicious beef
stew and crisp, tender cornbread..
Both are favorites of mine, and
"Black Mary" makes sure she has a
plentiful supply of both on hand when I
come. She knows How much I like
both dishes and she makes certain
they are available.
When she sits those dishes in front
of me, I make sure she knows how
much I like it, by eating my fill..
You can give "Black Mary" just a
little attitude with some turnip
greens, chicken livers, or a sweet
potato or two, a handful of pecans and
some of Georgia's finest kettle cooked
soppy. to work with .and you would
think yot had died and gone to

WHAT WE'RE TALKING about
here is just fare for a regular day
when relatives come to dinner.
Nothing extra fancy, you know, but
still well done and delicious.
I told you all this to just cause
your imagine to shift into overdrive
and consider, if "Black Mary" can
elicit such raves over her abilities at
the range on a regular day, just how
much better could her Thanksgiving
Let me tell you. They're just as
much better than her everyday fare
as yours are.
I won't say Thanksgiving is my
favorite holiday of the year. I know
better than to say that. There's also a
wedding anniversary, Frenchie's
birthday and the day the roses go on
sale to consider also. If they weren't
ranked up there somewhere, I would
be in trouble at home.
Nevertheless, when Thanksgiving
rolls around, and the memory of last
Thanksgiving is recalled by my taste
buds, secure in the knowledge that'
"Black Mary" is making her cook
stove ready for THE BIG DAY of the
year, Thanksgiving comes mighty
close to being classified as my
favorite holiday of the year.
And, "Black Mary" will fuss over
every morsel which is put on the table,

SINCE I STILL HAVE a little
space left here, let me digress a few
lines to tell you about the definition
my yankee friend, Hank Cassani,
gave me for a yankee the other day.
You have to know Hank to
appreciate this definition. He is from
upper Bahs-ton, Massa-chew-sits, and
there is no mistaking he isn't from
either side of Wewa when he starts
Hank also has a unique way of
expressing himself. He doesn't stutter
and he is quick to poke a jab at even
The other day at Rotary Club, he
offered the opinion that all yankees
fall in two different categories, but
they- all boiled down to one common
description. "A yankee is like a
hemorrhoid", Hank said. "There are
some which come down and go back
up. They're the good ones. And, then
there are those which come down and
stay. They're the bad ones!"
Hank came down and it looks like
he is going to stay, but I would be
reluctant to say he resembled a
hemorrhoid in any way. Hank is a
pretty good guy .. for a yankee.

Be Thankful, for Adversity
SOMEWISE AND knowing person once wrote, "Into each life some
rain must fall." Another person, just as wise and knowledgeable about
life, wrote, "In adversity there is opportunity."
There are many other statements that have been written that are just
as positive and encouraging for those who face adversity, and I don't
know of anyone who hasn't experienced a crisis or two at one time or
another in their lives. Some of us have faced more than our share.
LAST SUNDAY our preacher preached one of the best sermons, in
my opinion, he has ever preached. His sermon centered around
Thanksgiving and its importance to us Americans.
In his talk he told of a former vice president of the United States, who
as a boy of ten, watched his family's home burn to the ground. The only
thing saved, he said, was a feather mattress that had been laid out to sun.
After attempts to save the house failed, the young boy watched in
distress as his father leaned against a big oak tree that stood in their yard
and cried because everything they owned was lost.
It wasn't long, the story went on, before relatives, friends and
neighbors arrived to help build another bigger house and, later, bring
gifts to replace the furnishings, clothes and food that.had been lost in the
fire. Before it was over, the story continued, they had a better home,
newer and better furnishings and more food than they had before the fire.
Several weeks after the fire, the preacher said, the boy watched
again as his father leaned against the same oak tree and prayed, "Thank
you Lord, for You have given me back much more than was taken from
MOST OF THE TIME it is extremely difficult for us to see any ad-
vantage in adverse circumstances, especially when they seem to come in
extremes. The death of a family member or close friend would be a case
in point. This is especially true when the death is untimely or occurs at an
I was thinking of that very thing when the preacher, continued his
sermon, pointing out that everyone is given a time to die. Even the people
who were healed by Jesus, when he was on earth, eventually died.
That, he pointed out, is God's plan. Many times we don't understand,
but it is a part of life.
A FEW YEARS AGO my family faced an enormous crisis. Although I
consider myself a fighter and am not one to break down and cry, I came
very close to it at that particular time. Everything, it seemed, that we
had worked for throughout our married life, was lost! It was traumatic
for everyone in our family, to say the least.
Althouth we. were never destitute or close to being hungry, that
particular crisis burdened our entire family with a severe mental
dilemma that lasted about two years. As the old saying goes, we couldn't
see the forest for the trees.
Today, because of that crisis, we are happier than we have ever been
and, although we are still in the forest, we can at least see the light
through the trees.
IT WAS HARD to see any advantage to our situation at that time and
it is still hard to say but, I'm glad we had that difficult time in our lives
because we have learned to appreciate many things that we didn't before
and, so far, it has turned out wonderfully well for us.
What better time than on Thanksgiving is there for me and my family
to offer "Thanks" to God and all our family and friends for everything.
We wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday I
young lady would have paid me to
take the hat.
We didn't shop much longer as it
was about supper time. Cathy headed
for the boat. The boat I'd almost

away. I folded the T-shirts so nobody
could see what was written on them
and pulled the straw hat down as far

We ate for two solid hours. Then
our personal waiter, Juan, reads off
the desserts for us. I'd never heard of
:half the stuff ald I was full as a tick
and didn't need anything else but we
agreed, at his suggestion, to try
something he called a crepe suzette. I
don't know what went wrong but
before Juan could get our desserts to
the table the blame things caught fire.
I got mine out by emptying the tea pit-
cher over it and was beating Cathy's
with my napkin when Juan wrestled it
away from me and headed to the kit-
chen. He was back in thirty seconds
and as he wiped up the tea he politely
said, "May I suggest banilla ice
cream eet es always safe."
After supper we went to a movie. I
was so sick I don't remember much
about it except that we left before it
was over. The midnight buffet was
about to start and Cathy didn't want to
miss.it. We ate for two more hours. As
we rolled into bed about 3 a.m. Cathy
said, "Isq't this the greatest trip. Rest
good 'cause we've got the pre-dawn
breakfast at 5."
All good things have to come to an
end. Mercifully, this was our last day.
We hadn't danced, played bingo or put
any money in those slot machines. We
also hadn't played blackjack or had
dinner with the captain. We didn't
shoot any skeets or play shuffleboard.
We didn't rest any either. We were too

National Children's Book Week,
November 16-20, was celebrated at
Port St. Joe Elementary School with
super participation in the fun and
educational activities held during the
week. The aim of these activities was
to motivate the students to read more
and to identify with the book week
theme chosen, "Happy Reading".
The book fair proved to be the
most popular activity of the week.
Students from kindergarten through
grade six enjoyed the book fair a
number of times during the week with
enthusiasm soaring each time. This
fair was planned especially for Port
St. Joe Elementary students by
representatives of the school and
Great American Book Fairs. It was
the biggest and best book fair ever
staged at the school according to the
students and faculty members.
The Book Character Puppet con-
test was another popular activity with
many entries. The contest consisted of
a wide variety of well made puppets
from all grades. Kindergarten
through grade six included book
character puppets ranging from "Lit-
tle Red Riding Hood" to "A Pilgrim".
Book Week 1987 was certainly an
enjoyable one for the students at Port
St. Joe Elementary School. Many
students have started requesting
favorite titles to be included in the
next book fair.

Wewahitchka Faces Graceville
In State Play-offs Friday Night
Wewahitchka's Gators put the
icing on the cake of their District 2-A
championship Friday night by slash-
ing Apalachicola's defense for 351
yards and scoring six touchdowns in a
39-7 win over the Sharks.
The Gators rode the passing arm
of Durand McLeod for two of their
scores on passes to John Whitfield,
while Todd McGlon, Wilbert Wright,
McLeod and Mike Sewell ran for
The McLeod Whitfield combina-
tion started off the Gator rout of the
Sharks as the Gators' lone score in the
first period. From that point on, the
Gators ripped the Sharks' defense for
two TD's in the second and third
McGlon was the big Gator threat
on the ground, rushing for 107 of the
Gator's 248 rushing yardage in 18
carries. McGlon scored the Gator's
second TD on a 30 yard gallop and
Wright pushed across six more points
in the first half, to give the Gators a
commanding 18-0 lead at the rest
The Gators didn't let up in the
second half, either. They came
roaring right back, starting with a two
yard toss from McLeod to Whitfield
for a score. This time around, though,.
David Paul added the extra point kick
to up their score by seven points.
Later in the period, McLeod plunged
across the goal line from one yard out
and Paul kicked the extra point to give
the Gators a 32-0 margin going into the
Sewell put the cap on the Gator
frenzy in the final period, when he
dove across the goal line from two
yards out and Paul kicked his third
point after to round out the Wewa-
hitchka scoring at 39 points.
The Sharks got on the scoreboard
in the waning minutes of the game,
when Willie Cox staved off a shut-out
by scrambling for seven yards and the
TD. Cox kicked the extra point to end
the scoring by both teams.
Friday night, the Gators will be on
the road again inthe first test of their
state championship aspirations. The
Gators will be in Graceville to meet
the Tigers in the first round of the
state play-offs. The Tigers, like the
Gators, .have been winners all year
and Friday's game should 'be a

Sharks Muzzle Marianna Bulldogs, 19-6
The Sharks ended their season as
they would like to end the season
Friday night, with a 19-6 win over the
Marianna Bulldogs. The Sharks ended
their season with a 4-6 record, after
going 1-9 last year.
Port St. Joe's stout defense
continued to make opportunities for
the Shark offense which saw its two
premier runners sidelined during the
season, hampering their offensive
The defense showed its mettle
Friday night, when Willie Smith
scooped up a fumble by the Bulldog
quarterback, Jayson Shadburn, and
streaked for 60 yards to the goal line.
Shadburn had coughed up the ball on a
bone-jarring tackle by big Leonard
On the Bulldogs' very first play
after the kick-off, Matt Taylor inter-
cepted a Shadburn pass and scooted
out of bounds on the Dogs 29 yard line.
On third down, quarterback Blaine
Adams came charging through the
middle on a keeper and kept on
charging for 20 yards and the Sharks
second TD of the evening.
With two and a half minutes left in
the first half, Steve Howell picked
off the second Shadburn pass at
mid-field and the Sharks were oil the
move again. Two Adams passes to
` Russell Martin and Eric Langston
: moved the ball to the Marianna 23.
Another pass to Martin moved the ball
six more yards to the 17 and on .the
next play, here came Adams again
through the middle. This time, he
rambled for 17 yards and the Sharks'
final TD of the evening.
The Bulldogs got on the score-
board late in the third period on a
blocked punt. Jason Smith slipped
through the Shark defense and
blocked Ross Yowell's punt, scooped
up the ball and ran 15 yards for the
only Bulldog score of the evening.
It was a cold evening Friday in
Shark stadium, and the last game
blahs, along with the cold, had kept
some fans at home. Those who came
to the game were glad they did. The
Bulldogs may not have the best
football team in the Panhandle, but
there is no argument but what they
have the largest and possibly the best
band. The 280 member aggregation
kept the chilly fans on their feet with
their half-time performance, and drew
a standing ovation when they played

although smaller than Marianna's put
on one of their better shows of recent
years after the Marianna aggregation

but the Port St. Joe band stood its

Rotary International's project of
ridding the world of polio by the year
1990, was the subject of an informa-
tive video film shown to the Rotary
Club last Thursday.
Rotary has taken on the project of
innoculating all the children of the
world against the dread disease which
was once such a dreaded malady here
in the United States.
"Polio is still a very real threat to
children in the rest of the world", the
narrator of the film pointed out. While
the disease is now virtually unknown
in the United States, it still strikes one
out of evey 200 children in third world
countries, leaving them dead or
crippled for life."
Rotary International has already
raised and spent $50 million on this
project and estimate that some $120
million will be spent for vaccine alone
before the job is done. Originally
scheduled for completion in the year
2005, the 100th anniversary of the
founding of Rotary, larger than
expected contributions to the program
have moved the completion target
date up to 1990.
Polio is a disease which destroys
nerve tissue in the spinal column,
especially among children. The for-
mer scourge of children disappeared
from the scene in the United States
within 20 years after the first Salk
vaccine was developed against it,

awarded a Federal Grant to increase
driver and pedestrian safety among
the ever-growing group of elderly in
Florida. The grant, which takes effect
immediately, will provide funds for
Florida Highway Patrol to develop
public information and awareness
materials aimed at issues concerning
highway safety and the elderly in
"We will use two primary' ap-
proaches", stated Colonel -Bobby R.
Burkett, Florida Highway Patrol
Director,.'"1) targeting older drivers
and pedestrians to 'reach them

assist them in safer. driving and
defensive walking techniques, and 2)

Floridians over age 65 holding a
valid driver license represent 15
percent of licensed drivers. It is
.projected that one out of six drivers
will be in this age group in the 1990's.
This is consistent with census figures
showing Florida leading the nation in
elderly population growth.

Phase one of duck and coot
hunting season runs Nov. 25-29.
Shooting hours for waterfowl are from
one-half hour before sunrise to sunset.
The second phase of duck and coot
season is from Dec. 15 through Jan.
18. Daily bag limits for ducks are
based on a point system. Once a
hunter bags enough ducks to equal or
exceed 100 points, he will have
reached his daily bag limit.
The point system is as follows:
-Fulvous tree ducks, black
ducks, pintails, Florida ducks (mot-
tled ducks) and hen mallards have a
point value of 100 each.
-Redheads, wood ducks and
hooded mergansers are assigned a
point value of 70.
-Drake mallards, ring-necked
ducks, ruddy ducks, buffle-heads, and
goldeneyes are 35 points each.
-Scaup, blue-winged and green-
winged teal, gadwalls, shovelers,
wigeons, American and red-breasted
mergansers and all sea ducks are
assigned values of 20 points each.
-All other species and sexes of
ducks are 35 points, except those for
which there is no open season.
In addition, coots have no point
value but they do have a daily bag
limit of 15 and a possession limit of 30.
There is no open season in Florida on
geese, brant, purple gallinules or
Also, additional restrictions apply
on the use of lead shot for duck
hunters in some areas. The Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission has
designated 22 steel shot zones across
the state as a conservation measure.
Studies indicate lead poisoning from
shotgun pellets is a serious mortality
factor among ducks and eagles that
feed on ducks.
To hunt ducks in Florida, each
sportsman age 16 or older who is not
otherwise exempted must carry a
hunting license, a federal and a state
duck s'amp and, if using a wildlife
management area, a wildlife manage-
ment area stamp. However, resident
sportsman's licenses, which cost $40,
satisfy requirements for all state
licenses and stamps.
The Commission's free publica-
tion, "1987-88 Migratory Game Bird
Regulations for Duck and Coot,"
contains details of duck hunting and
steel shot regulations. It is available
from Commission offices.
At a meeting in Tallahassee Nov.
13, the Florida Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission revised rules per-
taining to alligators.
One rule change requires nui-
sance alligator trappers to purchase
$250 annual licenses and $30 hide
validation tags. The rule also allows
trappers to sell the hides of nuisance
alligators and keep all the proceeds.
Previously, the Commission sold the
hides and returned 70 percent of the
proceeds to the trappers.

Child's View of Thanksgiving
Mrs. Anchor's Fifth Grade Students Give Their Holiday Impressions
Duck, Coot Season Starts
Four Day Season This Week
Thanksgiving has different mean-
ings for different people. The boys and
girls in Mrs. Anchors' fifth grade
class wrote what it meant to them.
Perhaps your meaning will be the
same as these.
I think Thanksgiving is a day for
families to get together and have a
feast. I think we should invite our
family like the the Pilgrims invited
the Indians. I'm glad we have
Thanksgiving and hope it will keep
being a family tradition.
I think that Thanksgiving is
special. It is a time for caring and
loving, a time for happiness and
enjoyment. For my big brother, it is a
time to eat. For me, it means a whole
lot more than eating. I believe like the
Pilgrims that came long.ago that we
should celebrate. We should worship
God, too. That is what I think of
Thanksgiving means to me a time
of thanks and a time of love and
giving. On Thanksgiving Day, most of
the time, the entire family will get
together. We will celebrate the
coming of the Pilgrims. I will think in
my head about how good it was at the
first Thanksgiving. The Pilgrims and
Indians celebrated the thanks and the
giving. I hope that the first Thanksgiv-
ing was good.
To me Thanksgiving means the
time of year to give thanks and be nice
and friendly to one another. The
Pilgrims started Thanksgiving by
giving a big supper to give thanks. I
am thankful for teachers, stores,
school, neighbors, classmates, and
many other things. This year we will
celebrate Thanksgiving and have a
Thanksgiving is a time to give
thanks, not a time to eat turkey. It's a
time to have fun. Just because
somebody else has turkey, you don't.
So don't ask for turkey, just give
thanks for the Pilgrims and Indians
and everything you have.
Thanksgiving is a time when I like
to eat turkey and dressing, be with
family, to think of the Pilgrims who
came over on the Mayflower, and the
Indians that they had a feast with. I
like to visit with friends and have
them come over and eat with me. It is
a time to be thankful and share" with
others, and tell young kids-About the
Pilgrims and the, Indians. "*""
I think Thanksgiving is a time for
peace and to thank God for what he
has given us. I think it should be a
time when people gather and have a
great feast. I think it should be a time
to have a great celebration and give
thanks for what we have.
Thanksgiving means to me to
have a feast to remember the
Pilgrims and Indians helping and
giving to each other. On Thanksgiving
morning, the. first thing I do is pray
and give thanks to God for letting
Pilgrims have a safe trip to America.
It also means to go hunt wild game as
the Pilgrims did once before, to get
outdoors and see nature, see the world
like they did, and invite kin folks to
ha4 dinner like the Pilgrims invited
Thanksgiving means celebration,
for families to get together. To have
good homes and a big meal like
chicken and dressing, potato salad, or
turkey. You can even have a
wonderful get together family reunion
and have fun with your family and
cousins. You can even tell your family
that comes ,about the Pilgrims. That
is what it means to my family and me.
They might even know about the'
eats at your house. The Pilgrims
invited the Indians to eat with them on
Thanksgiving means to give
thanks for people. It means to help
someone, to go over to someone's
house. If someone new comes, show
them around town. If someone wants
you to take out the trash, do it. To give
thanks to God.
Thanksgiving means when you
have' fruits, turkey, chicken and
dressing on the table. It also means a
day when your family gets together. It
is a special day to me because I'm
thankful. I am thankful for the people
around me. I thank God for the things
he gives me. I'm thankful for my
sisters and parents.
I think Thanksgiving is for giving
thanks to the Indians for helping the
Pilgrims learn to plant crops. When
the Pilgrims had a feast they had the
Indians come because they were their
Thanksgiving means giving
thanks and caring for people in your
family. .It means celebrating a
holiday. Most of all it means celebrat-
ing when the Pilgrims came on the
Mayflower and then the Indians had a
feast. I'm proud to say that Thanks-
giving is a great holiday.
Thanksgiving means a time to
give thanks. That's one reason we call
it Thanksgiving. It is a time when we
sit down together and eat all the
turkey and stuffing and cranberries
and get nice and fat.
Thanksgiving means to me when
all the family goes to someone's house
in your family and eats turkey with
dressing,, stuffing, mashed potatoes,
and things like that. The family sits
and talks and the children play
outside. The Pilgrims started Thanks-
giving in 1621. That's what Thanksgiv-
ing means to me.
What'Thanksgiving means to me
is getting together with our family and
thanking the Lord for the many things
He gives us. The Lord gives us many
things that we should be thankful for.
That's why we have Thanksgiving.
I think that Thanksgiving means
that the people who came here long
ago thanked God. They thanked God
for a safe trip. Every year we
celebrate this day for the people who
came here. They had help from the
Indians and from God. They thought
-they should thank the' IiIdians and
everyone who helped them: They were
thanking and- giving. That's what
Thanksgiving means to me.
Thanksgiving means a time when
you and your family have a feast.' It's
a time for caring. It is a time when the
Pilgrims get together and had a feast.
It is a time when you and your parents
get to spend time together. On
Thanksgiving you are supposed to
have turkey. It is a special time. The
Pilgrims started Thanksgiving long
Thanksgiving means your family
should get together and have a big,
delicious dinner. After supper you and
your family talk and have a good
time. It should be a day of love when
you invite a friend over and you visit
with your friends and family. On
Thanksgiving Day I feel so good and I
feel like I could hug and have a great
day with my family and friends. I am
thankful for. the Pilgrims, how they
sailed to America, and I like how the
Indians helped them and they were
thankful to God for blessing them with
what they had and it became the first

In an unique adventure last week,
students at Highland View Elemen-
tary and Port St. Joe Elementary
were taught the proper way to exit a
burning house or a building that is on
fire. The program was conducted by
off-duty, personnel of the Naval Fire
Department at the Naval Air Station,
Captain James Jimerson and In-
spector Art Nunaker rotated their
time between classrooms to instruct
the students of the proper method of
getting out of a home. Following the
lecture, Fireman Jerry McCain and
Fireman Rick Bonifay guided the
students, four at a time, through the
"Children's Fire Safety House".
The safety house simulated an ac-
tual home on fire, filled with a smoky
substance, with the children asleep
upstairs in the bedroom. Upon hear-
ing the smoke detector's alarm, the
children crawled from their beds, to
the door of their bedroom, and check-
ed to see if the door was hot or cool
with the back of their hand. If the door
was hot the children were told to get in
a corner or next to a window and open
it. If the door was cool, the children
slowly opened it, and crawled to an
outer door. With stairs in the Safety
House, the children crawled
backwards and at the bottom of the
stairs, turned and crawled forwards
to the outer door. If clothes are on fire,
they were told to drop and roll to
smother the fire do not run.
The firemen encouraged the
children to instruct their parents in
the following information:
1) have smoke detectors
2) have two ways to get out of the
3) practice fire drills
4) have a meeting place once
everyone is out for a head count to
make sure everyone is out.
Above all, parents are encourag-
ed to teach their children WHO to call
to report a fire.
This program conducted by the
firefighters of the NAS, Pensacola, is
only one of three programs in the en-
tire nation to utilize these methods to
teach children fire safety. According
to Captain Jimerson, over 90,000
children in the southeastern United
States were instructed on fire safety
by men in his fire fighting unit at Pen-
sacola. The "Children's Fire Safety
House" was built by fire department
personnel, with donations of
materials. The house is on the road
with off-duty personnel approximate-
ly three days a week, and is booked
splid.for the next year.
,f And.heree ,have" been seven
documented cases in the Pensacola
area during the past two years, when
children who have been through the
fire safety course, have been credited
with saving their entire families, get-
ting them out of burning homes safe-
ly," said Capt. Jimerson.

Nemours Children's Clinic
The University of Florida and
Jacksonville's Nemours Children's
Clinic have announced the beginning
of negotiations to affiliate the two
institutions. The agreement to be
negotiated would create a location for
the University of Florida Health
Science Center to send its medical
residents, nurses and other health
professionals for advanced training in
pediatrics, while providing Nemours
with access to the academic resources
of the University of Florida.
Objectives sought by both institu-
tions would include expanding the
Nemours Children's Clinic research
effort, upgrading the quality of
pediatric graduate medical education
and creation of a center of pediatric
medical excellence for the entire
Southeast. A memorandum of under-
standing, signed by the parties on
November 20th, calls for a final
affiliation agreement to be negotiated
within 120 days.
It is the goal of all parties
concerned with this agreement that it
contribute to the further development
of an outstanding medical complex
dedicated to children. The complex
would include the rapidly developing
Nemours Children's Clinic and a new
contiguous children's hospital to be
built by other parties.
The Nemours Clinic is one of two
children's hospitals funded by St. Joe
