Owl Turns Out the Lights

Shorts Out Power In Most of South Gulf County

Electric power was suddenly shut
off about 7:20 Saturday night and was
off for nearly two hours, as the result
of an owl which apparently lost its
way in the heavy fog which enveloped
the coastline at the time.
According to Mike McDonald,
Florida Power Corporation manager
for the Port St. Joe district, the
service was completely shut off from
Sixth Street in Port St. Joe, all the way
to Cape San Bias and Indian Pass.
"Everyone south of Sixth Street was
in the dark", McDonald said.
They stayed in the dark for nearly
two hours, as Florida Power linemen
searched for the cause of the drastic
outage. "Our entire crew searched for
more than an hour to find the cause
for the outage", McDonald said. "The
fog was so thick it was hard to even
see poles in the dark with our powerful
search lights. It was really a difficult
job just getting around".
McDonald said the problem was
finally located on a main line near the,
City Warehouse, which is just across
,the street from the power company's
substation here in Port St. Joe. "The

problem was right on our front door
step and we couldn't find it"
McDonald said.
An owl had stumbled onto one of
the main feeder lines, for the entire
service area at a point where the
several legs of the distribution lines
come close enough together for the
owl to touch more than one leg on the
The force of the shock literally
blew the body of the owl apart. "I wish
every kid could see this owl and see
just what a large jolt of electricity can
do to them, as a warning to stay away
from high voltage lines", the FPC
manager said.
After FPC emergency crews
located the problem, it took only about
20 minutes to get service back in
In the meantime, the outage will
be remembered well by one young
couple. Tommy Williams, Jr., and
Melinda Davis were repeating their
wedding vows about the time the
power failed and had to complete the
ceremony in the dark. That's the kind
of stuff one tells his grandchildren.

Mike McDonald, FPC station manager hols up what remains of an owl
which flew into main feeder lines Saturday night, blacking out most of south
Gulf County for two hours.

News Gives Board

SAn Early Heartburn

It was an abbreviated County
Commission meeting Tuesday of last
week, as the Commissioners were
eager to get necessities out of the way
and get on with their holidays.
Even so, it was long enough for
attorney William J. Rish to give the
Commission a preliminary case of
heartburn by informing them of the
latest epistle from the Department of
Environmental Regulation, regarding
the county's solid waste disposal
The Commission thought things
were set for at least a year in regards
to solid waste, but attorney Rish said
Tuesday the DER has sent the county
a consent order, which says in effect
YOU WILL make certain changes by
October; 1988, or face the ire of the
The changes include:
-Transferring all solid waste
from South Gulf to the incinerator in
Bay county; (This has been done).
-Initiate training classes for all
solid waste disposal operators. (This
has not been done, but isn't so bad).
-Will install liners in the Buck-
horn landfill site prior to October 1988
or face loss of an operation permit.
This latest requirement has not

been done and wasn't even planned
for at least a year or two.
In September, the DER agreed to
let the county off the hook if they
would include money in the current
budget to begin planning for installa-
tion of the pit liner at Buckhorn.
Money for the planning was included
in the new budget which just went into
effect two months ago.
Now, the DER says the county
must get the liner installed-at an
estimated cost of $400,000-or bad
things will happen.
Gulf County doesn't have a spare
$400,000 lying about, unused, in the
current year's budget.
Since there is no money available
for this change in solid waste disposal
and since the DER says it will be done
by October of next year, or there will
be no valid operation permit issued,

Tax Bills Begin

Appearing In Mail

It wasn't one if your better ways to begin a holiday season, but
property owners in Gulf County had to start the Christmas season with a
whopping tax bill in their hands.
Eda Ruth Taylor, Gulf County's Tax Collector, sent out tax statements
late last week on somi 12,000 pieces of property, billing owners for some $6
million in county, school and city taxes to greet them as they came down off
a high of celebrating Thanksgiving day to the duty of getting back on the
job Monday.
With having a holiday come to an end and being greeted by tax bills,
Monday was not your best of days for many people in Gulf County.
Taylor said the tax notices will attempt to collect the largest tax bill
she can remember in hekr association with the Tax Collector's office. "It
was substantially higher than last year", she said.
Taylor said the tax notices were scheduled to be sent out by November
I, but delay in meeting state criteria for budget preparations and tax
payer hearings, delayed the mailing by a month.
The delb in mailing out notices has caused the Gulf County School
Board to borrow money to operate on for 30 days. The. County has been
faced with the possibility of having to borrow, but still hasn't made a loan
for operating (unds. The City of Port St. Joe had a $54,000 dump truck
scheduled to be delivered just any day and is scurrying around trying to get
Its financial ducks in a row.
In the meantime, Taylor said tax payments are already coming in at a
brisk rate. She said those who wish to pay early and take advantage of the
four percent discount, may do so through the month of December. Two
percent discounts will be allowed in January and one percent in February.
Tax payments become delinquent if not paid by April 1.

Santa Claus is on his way to Port St. Joe, according to
Bob Bearden, who is in charge of the annual Merchant's
Association Christmas parade this year. Old Santa was held
up a little bit, crossing the western states and their raging
snow storms early this week, but he'll be here right on the
dot at 3:00 p.m., Saturday afternoon for the annual parade,
according to Bearden.
t' WeLhe.grLb eingbhunwitb one of our better parades, if-
my advice reservations'for entries are any indication",
Bearden said this week. "We still have time to take some
more and already we have as many signed up as
were signed up last year. I've had to re-align the parade
twice because of the type entries and I expect we'll have to
make some last minute changes as usual", he said.
"The kids are ready, Santa Claus is ready and the Port
St. Joe merchants are ready for a big day Saturday"
Bearden said.
The parade director said, "Just like every Christmas,
we have some entries pledged to go along with the usual
participants who join in every year. One of the features
scheduled for this year's production which was unavailable
last year is a square dancing group. "They should be an
interesting addition to our festivities", Bearden said.
In addition there will be clowns who will be in and out of

new lime slot of 3:00 p.m. seemed to be extr'ern'ly ell

us to stick with the afternoon hour.
The parade will begin at the south end of Reid Avenue
and advance north to First Street. The route will then go
west on First Street and advance south on Highway 98 back
to Fifth Street.
Cash prizes will be offered again this year for the top
three non-commercial float entries. The prizes will be $100
for first prize, $75 00 for second place and $50.00 for third
There will be many entries by local business firms, but
only the entries of civic groups, church groups, student

Carl Richter Sworn In Monday As

Port St. Joe's New Chief of Police

New police chief, Carl "Bucky"
Richter, took over the leadership of
the Port St. Joe Police Department
Monday morning, as he was sworn
into office by City Auditor and Clerk,
Alden Farris. Richter took over his
duties from three-year interim chief,
Robert Maige, who is resuming his
retirement agaih.
"I only came for a few months,
but they kept asking me to stay just a
little longer, until it ran into a three
year tour of duty",Maige said. "I
have some fishing I need to get done",
he pointed out.
Richter said later in the week,
"That first day was a hectic one. It
seemed as if everybody wanted
something, but it's quieting down
Richter said he is already em-
barking on his quest to upgrade the
local department tremendously. He
has said he is aiming at higher morale
among his officers, higher credibility

There will be a reception in
honor of Richter Sunday afternoon
from 2:30 to 5:00 p.m., in the
conference room of the Fire
Station. The reception is being
given to encourage local people to
meet the new police chief and enjoy

with the publiic and a better working
relationship with other law enforce-
ment agencies throughout the county.
"This isn't to say the department
is not effective. I just think it can be
better and I'm going to strive toward
that goal", Richter said.
The new chief recalls the type
operation run by the late chief H. W.
"Buck" Griffin. Griffin could make a

couple of telephone calls when some-
thing happened and have the perpe-
trator walking into his office, giving
himself up in just a short while.
"That's the type operation I hope to
run here; very low key, but getting the
job done in an effective manner",
Richter said.
Richter may believe he has a little
bit of a head start toward that goal
due to the coincidence of his

Richter left the Florida Marine
Patrol after 17 years of service, to
take the job with the City of Port St.
Joe. "I had advanced as far as I could
in the FMP without taking a trans-
fer", Richter said. "I like it here and
feel I can make a contribution to the
quality of life in the community".
The new police chief and his
family make their home in the Ward
Ridge section of Port St. Joe, where
they have lived for several years.

Richter has served with the Marine
Patrol in the Gulf County area for the
past 14 years He says he feels his past
experience in law enforcement in this
area will be an enormous help in
preparing him to take over the duties
of leadership in the local police
Richter was the final choice from
a field of nine finalists who had made
application for the top law enforce-
ment position here in Port St. Joe.

Christmas Season

Starts Strong

Time sure does move along. Here it is Christmas parade
time again Saturday which means it can't be very long until the
most joyous holiday of the year rolls around again. The problem
is, what with the recent financial upheaval in our nation and in
the world, this Christmas won't be so merry for many people;
especially some of those who equate a merry Christmas with
spending money or receiving gifts.
Those who think Christmas is a merry holiday because it is
the time of the year we celebrate the birth of the Christ child,
couldn't care less if the season is one of strong economic
movements in order to keep the season jolly.
But, unfortunately, or fortunately, depending on how one
looks at it, it does take a certain amount of business to keep the
wheels turning and the fires lit.
Already some of the predictions are that shoppers will spend
less money this Christmas season and it has many merchants
worried. Uncertainty is a terrible thing, and no matter how much
we say we're not going to let it bother us, the human nature in us
demands that it worry us.
We're not going to suggest here that you run out and spend
all your money on Christmas and then charge to the limit of your
charge cards. We're not going to do that-never have and never
will-and we're not going to suggest that you do so.
We are going to suggest that you make it a happy holiday
season for all here in Port St. Joe, by giving your local
merchants a try before trotting off to some distant city to make
your Christmas purchases. From what we hear, the early
indications are that there are more people doing just that this
year than in the past. The first days of the Christmas season
buying, around the week end of Thanksgiving, were brisk here in
Port St. Joe and if that continues we think we will all be the
better for it.
In our mobile society we have a tendency to get in the old
family bus and go. We have it here, they have it in Panama City,
they have it in Dothan, they have it in Tallahassee. The thinking
is that the bargains are just a little better down the road. But, it
isn't so.
We've said it before, many times, but it will bear repeating
again. When we want a sponsorship, a donation or a contribution
for some of our many civic activities, our local merchants bear
the brunt of the expenses. If we keep him. healthy, he can
continue to do so. The money he contributes comes out of his
pocket; not out of some bottomless well somewhere.

Didn't Understand What?

The public hearing held over in Bay County Tuesday,
concerning the service sales tax and its lack of popularity with
everyone except the Legislature, should have opened some local
eyes. .....
The hearing,. hosted by Representative Ron Johnson:and
Senator Dempsey Barron, both of Panama City, revealed to us
there are several questions to be answered concerning the
passage of this new tax law.
First, let us say we voted for Senator Barron every time he
has ever run. We haven't voted for Ron Johnson, of course,
because he doesn't represent our district. But after he made a
pitch on TV justifying his change of mind toward the service tax
because "he didn't understand it" made us decide right then and
there that if the Legislative districts are ever gerrymandered
again, and we're put in Johnson's district, we won't vote for him
in the future either.
Any Legislator who would vote for (or against) any tax law
which he didn't understand, has no business being in the
Legislature, City Hall, the County Courthouse, or anywhere else
where responsibility is the keynote.
We can understand making a mistake or making the wrong
decision, but not understanding a tax law should be a no-no for a
government official.
Tax bills are so permanent. If anything is ever understood by
a public official before casting a vote, a tax bill is one of them.
We're wondering, however, if it was the law itself he didn't
understand or was it just how much people of Florida didn't want
the service sales tax which he didn't understand.


Hunker Down with Kes

Summa Cum Laude

One Christmas I got a coon dog.
Named him Duke. He was, I think, a
cross between a Blue tick and a Tree-
ing Walker. He might have had a little
Blace and Tan in him, too. He was just
a hound, but boys, he could tree a
Of course he wouldn't tree when I
got him. Shucks, he wouldn't even
run, and he barked mostly at the back
door awaiting for mother to throw out
a few scraps. As Christmas gifts go
I'll bet you Duke didn't cost as much
as a Battle Star Transformer. As a
matter of fact I heard later that Mr.
James Harold Bomar gave ole Duke

to Dad. After the first couple of times
we tried to take him hunting my older
brother felt the nothing Dad paid for
the dog was too much.
Hey, you know how you are about
your dogs. I pretended that Duke was
a little better than he was. You know
what I mean? We'd walk those dogs
down toward the pond behind Mr. Ar-
chie Moore's and turn'em loose. In no
time Blue and Dan and Sally would
jump a coon and the race was on.
Duke would be laying at my feet.
"Go get'em Duke." The dog
doesn't move. "Get'em boy."
Nothing. Leon, Ricky Gene and Jim

Bob are kind'a laughing at me. As I
yell, "Move it dog" I give him a little
kick out through the woods. "Those
other dogs must not be running a coon
or ole Duke would be tearing it up."
"Right," Jim Bob would answer,
"If it was a coon, that ball of fire you
brought along would be eating it up."
Ricky would join in, "I'm just
thankful your dog hasn't howled
yet-if the coons find out mighty Duke
is down here our race will be over
'cause all the coons will just come out
to the road and surrender."
The dogs treed in that little swam-
py area just below the pond. I couldn't
get Duke to go in with us. I ended up
carrying that dog through the swamp
on my shoulders. Jim Bob climbed the
tree, jabbed the coon out and the fight

was on. I threw Duke right into the
middle of three dogs and a mad coon.
He yelped about twice, did a
backward somersault out of there and
headed for the house. He didn't come
out from under the porch for three

Clarifies New Rules
for Fla. Scholars

Dear Editor:
I am writing to clarify some
confusion about the eligibility require-
ments for the Florida Academic
Scholars Program. This program
rewards high academic achievement
by high school students with scholar-
ships to attend Florida colleges and
I am afraid that some people have
the impression that the Legislature's
new rule governing the Scholars
Program also applies to those stu-
dents who have already entered the
program curriculum under the ori-
ginal eligibility requirements. Were
that the case, many students would
not receive the scholarship money
they have been expecting.
In the regular session of the 1987
Legislature, an amendment was
passed that could have had a negative
impact on high school students who
were already working toward an
Academic Scholar Certificate. To
receive the certificate, the students
must enroll in required courses and
accumulate a 3.0 grade point average.
This certificate requirement re-
mained the same. However, the
amendment stipulated that to be
awarded the scholarship under the
Florida Academic Scholars Program
a students must have a 3.5 grade point
average. This new law could possibly
have penalized graduates of ,the
1988, 1989, and 1990 high school
Fortunately, during the special
session this fall, the Legislature
corrected the law and reinstated those
students already working under the
3.0 rule. Students who are sopho-
mores, juniors, or seniors were
"grandfathered" into the new eligibi-
lity requirements and will not be
penalized if they do not accumulate a
3.5 unweighted grade point average.
These students are still eligible
for the $1,000 or $1,500 scholarship.
The legislature increased the amount
of the award, but the students may
only receive the larger amount if they
meet the new criteria. The scholar-
ships were increased to $2,500.1 hope
this information clears up any confus-
ion about the scholarship program. I
am pleased that we can offer this
enticement to our high school scholars
and I'm looking forward to rewarding
even more students.

Subject of Peanuts Proved to be Popular with Our Readers

HERE I AM BACK on the subject
of peanuts again. It wasn't but a
couple of weeks ago when I explored
the way one eats peanuts anonymous-
ly, but that little adventure into the
ndtty world has cracked some shells,
it seems.
I can't really get into the subject
of peanuts in an expert manner
because we don't live in the peanut
growing region of our state. Just a few
miles north, peanuts are grown by the
truck-load, but I would know nothing
about that and I wouldn't even try to
eat that many.
I have learned there are other
people in the world, besides men, who
are worried about ways to consume
that delicious legume.
The famous scientist, George

Washington Carver even thought up
ways to use peanuts even God didn't
intend. They're a very versatile little
nut with many uses.
Old professor Carver did just
about as much research on the sweet
potato and different ways to apply it to
our lives. I applaud Carver's fervor in
promoting the two southern products
in order to boost a demand for their
increased production, but the good
taste alone should be enough to
Sustain these two crops.

peanut. I have seen at least two
additional ventures into my nutty
world by other columnists. One was in
Atlanta. where a good peanut is
appreciated and recognizable, and the
other was in Chicago. where a good
peanut would be appreciated if the
folks up there were to ever see one.
In Atlanta, Lewis Grizzard was

writing the other day about peanut
butter, discussing the attributes of the
smooth and crunchy variety.
He opted for the crunchy.
But Grizzard didn't really get
down to the basics in discussing
peanuts. He went for the peanut
butter, which is one of the lesser
products of the king peanut.
I appreciated Lewis' discussion
on the matter and empathized with
him entirely in his discourse on the
choice between the two varieties of
America's favorite spread.
I have always been a subscriber
to the old saw that, man cannot live by
bread alone: he must have peanut
If one can't have the real
thing-peanuts-then peanut butter is
a pretty good substitute.
+ ++++
I HAD NOT MUCH more than laid
down the writings of Lewis Grizzard,
than I received a clipping in the mail

from my friend Ernie Hendricks of
Mexico Beach. I knew Ernie was top
peanut in growing roses, but I was
unaware he appreciated the lowly
peanut or any of its derivatives.
Ernie sent me a column from an
Orlando paper written by a man who
unashamedly admitted he spent his
childhood in the Chicago area where
his life was spent trying to figure out
the least amount of time he could
spend between peanut butter jars.
This guy wasn't writing about real
peanut butter. He was into adulterat-
ed peanut butter. You know the kind.
There is peanut butter mixed with
grape jelly, there is peanut butter
mixed with mushmellers, there is
peanut butter mixed with honey, figs,
chocolate, cane syrup and mullet roe.
When you go to messing up real
peanut butter like that and putting it
in a jar, it loses something in the
When I was a kid, mixing peanut

butter with syrup, cow's butter or
honey was a delight to the stomach.
The pre-mixed stuff is strictly for the
birds. It just ruins a good jar of peanut
This Orlando writer even remem-
bered when he used to sneak a jar of
peanut butter to bed with him and
have a feast while his parents were
blissfully unaware of the fact he was
pigging out.
Beacon Hill has an even more unique
use of peanut butter. She puts it on
pine cones and uses it to feed the birds
which visit regularly in her yard. The
birds like peanut butter almost as
most sensible people do. Mrs. Lull
says the birds stay in her yard all year
long, even during the cold winter, and
it has to be the peanut butter which
does it.
I never really knew peanuts and
peanut butter were such popular fare.

I wonder, too, if George Washington
Carver ever considered using the
peanut product as a bird food. He
must have; he used them for
everything else.
I have had numerous inquiries as
to whether or not I have ever replaced
the three jars of rancid peanut butter
in our cupboard with a fresh jar. Well,
I do remember at least two people
asked about that. The answer is, yes, I
have. There is now a fresh supply of
half the staff of life resting there on
the shelf just in case I get the
uncontrollable urge to get me a table
spoon, a jar of the elixir and a box of
crackers and just enjoy life.
Actually, after a long week end of
eating turkey, ham, dressing, cran-
berries, sweet potatoes, green beans,
corn, pecan pie, pumpkin pie, mince
meat pie, giblet gravy, home made
rolls and all that gunk, a mess of
peanut butter sounds pretty good right

There's no one who ever lived that enjoyed smoking more than I did. I
would have smoked while asleep if I could have talked my wife into

For several days prior to my stopping date, I read everything I could "
on how to stop. From all my references I made an outline of "do's" and
don'tt" that I though would suit me. A few of the things I did "do" the
last fifty or so times I stopped, I wouldn't do this time. And some of the
don'tt" I didn't do before, I would do this time, or something like that.
BELOW IS A SHORT list of my "do's."
-Stop drinking coffee.
-Stop drinking beer and whiskey.
-Stop hanging around with most of my trashy friends.
-Stop sitting at the table after I finished eating.
-Stop eating highly seasoned foods, like pizza, tacos and all the other
foods I love so much.
-Stop laying in bed in the morning thinking how good a cigarette and
a cup of coffee would taste.
-Stop going to parties and other places where people were drinking,
smoking and having a good time.
---Stop hanging around with the rest of my trashy friends.
A partial list of my don'tt" are listed below.
-Give up.
-Lose my temper, as I did in the past, over nothing.
-Minister to others who smoke just because I don't.
-Start drinking after I had been stopped for three months or so and
suddenly find myself having a cigarette and lots of fun.
-Waste eime fretting about not being a "smoker." I would put my
spare time ipto a useful, worthwhile hobby.
-Gain weight as an excuse for stopping. Kpep myself trim and
exercise at least five times a week.
-Stop eating fruits and nuts for snacks to replace the cigarette habit.
--Let my trashy friends hang around me.
THE SECRET TO STOP smoking is to reverse everything you do.
That's what I did and it worked. I feel so much better that I can hardly
stand myself.
A lot of other people can't either. I was voted the most uninteresting,.
repulsive person in Florida for three consecutive years.

I went to see Mr. James Harold
Bomar. We talked dogs for hours. He
explained that my dog was young and
it was going to take.lots of patience. I
was going to have to spend time with
him. Mr. James Harold Bomar was
thtMichaelangeloof coon hunters. He
said' my dog could do it. "Mostly
you've got to hunt him, boy. That dog
has got it in him-you've got to get it
I got serious about hunting that
season and the next. Duke was better
-he wouldn't trail, jump, run or tree
,but he'd bark, a little every now and
then. I stayed with it. The guys felt so
g sorryfor me they stopped kidding me
about my dog.
Sometime around Christmas of
the third year with old Duke the whole
house was awakened to what sounded
like World War HI going on in the
back yard. That dog and a coon had .
tied up in a match that would have
,made Wrestlemania II look like a
walk in the park. I started to
separate'em when my Dad stopped
me. "You've schooled him for a long
time son-you may be looking at his
graduation tonight."
That coon near about killed my
dog. But Duke didn't quit. When the
coon heard Dan and Sally coming he
lit out, with Duke, bleeding from cuts
on his nose, head, neck and both ears,
in hot pursuit. He treed his first coon
ever that night and a legend was born.
Of course that was thirty years ago.
You can't imagine how much better
that dog gets with each passing year.
You tend to remember the best in
your good dogs--the worst in your not
so good dogs.
But, what a special Christmas
gift-and he lasted longer than the
batteries. I appreciate those special
memories of.boy and dog. I asked my
Dad once about the big fight. "What if
that coon had killed old Duke?" "Well
son, he wouldn't have graduated."

look of Christmas early.
In order to have the decorations
up in time for the Christmas parade
Saturday, the workers began getting
their decorations ready for installa-
tion last week. City superintendent of
public works, Martin Adkison said
this week the town will look like
Christmas by Saturday.
Several new pieces of decoration
have been added to the city's street
decorations, in a continuing effort to
keep the Christmas pieces looking
fresh and neat.

By: Gene Dickey
The Port St. Joe Jaycees remind
everyone not to miss the Merchants
Association Annual Port St. Joe
Christmas Parade at 3:00 p.m. this
Saturday. Project chairman Jay
Metcalf comments. "We will have all
the toys that the community has
donated on display on our float. Our
Florida Jaycees state officer. District
Director Susie Alfiera will be working
with local members as part of our elf
team on the float. Chapter member's
children will also be on the float.
There will be the traditional blankets
for donations for the Toys for Tots
program. A special thanks to the
Florida National Bank for donating.
the candy that our blanket carriers
Will pass out. For safety reasons the
candy will be handed out instead of
thrown from the float. Once again
Gregg Burch's art classes at the Port
St. Joe High School will be helping
with the decorations. We hope to have
a float that can compete for the $100
first prize. It is an event that everyone
in the community will want to see. A
special thanks also goes to Bob
Bearden and the Merchants who do
such a fine job on the parade every
Toys for Tots chairman Tom
Watson again sends his thanks to the
community. Comments Tom, "Our
Toys for Tots Sunday with area
churches was a tremendous success.
It continues to be a source of pride
that the community supports this
project in such a big way. Larry's

Bike Shop has joined the bandwagon
and is donating parts necessary to
repair the bikes and tricycles that
have been donated. Joe Demo has
done a great job heading our repair
team. The whole community can take
pride in the toys that will be on display
in the parade Saturday. I would also
like to remind the community that we
are open to referrals in addition to the'
children recommended by HRS."
The second weigh in of the "Our
President's Too Fat" program was
held and Gene Dickey weighed in at
203 pounds and Gregg Burch at 204
,pounds. both losing three pounds.
Comments Gene. "Gregg's real exci-
ted about the program and plans to


'ade to

Lase Toys
begin in earnest at the first of the
year. I am pulling hard for Gregg, but
as one of our older Jaycees it will be
difficult for him to change his diet and
exercise programs. Judging from his
recent comments I am beginning to
worry about senility setting in."
The Jaycees will be meeting next
Tuesday at the St. Joe Beach
Volunteer Fire Department at 8:00
p.m. Anyone interested in Toys for
Tots or other projects is encouraged to
attend. We welcome new member
Brian DeVine and the return of our
Public Relations Director Jef Gard-
ner from New York.

"We weren't supposed to win
against Graceville", Wewahitchka
Gator coach Dennis Kizziah said early
this week, "and we'll be going up
against the team which has THE best
running back in the state of Florida
Friday night", the coach said, inti-.
mating that the Gators are not
supposed to win Friday night, either.
The Gators have spent a season
winning against teams they were not
supposed to win against, because of
their tenacious defensive play and
their eagerness to snap up an
opportunity and turn it into a score.
Friday night, the Gators advanc-
ed into the play-offs for the first time
in Kizziah's tenure in Wewahitchka,
bumping the favored Tigers, 13-7. Half
their scoring was done by the
tenacious defense, when Darryl Lister
grabbed a Graceville pass and ran 18
yards for the points which put the
Gators out of reach of the Tigers.
The thing which out the Gators

out of reach for the Tigers, was their
containment of the Tigers speedy
Michael Pittman for three quarters.
Pittman still gained over 170 yards,
but most of it came too little, too late.
The Gators put six points on the
scoreboard in the second quarter, to
take the lead, when David Paul
snared a pass from Durand McLeod
and scored on a 50 yard strike which
was half the entire Gator passing
offense for the night.'
"We won on defense. It was the
only way we could win'over a team
like Graceville", Kizziah said.
Graceville, a top-runner in the
state standings all season long, scored
in the final quarter,, when Pittman
broke loose on a 45 yard scoring

For several years, the JSharks
have almost been able to count on
winning at least one game in the cage
season; their opener to the Tornadoes.
An extremely cold first period, in
which the Sharks scored only three
points made the difference in Panama
City Tuesday, as the Sharks dropped a
71-64 decision in their first outing.
"We'll get better as the season
goes along and as we play more
together", head coach Jim Belin said.
Belin acknowledged that the Sharks
were as sharp as most Shark teams
are Tuesday night.
After the first period, the Sharks
stayed right with the larger Torna-

Friday night, the Gators bring the
play-offs to Wewahitchka, as they host
a strong Jacksonville University
Christian, who are scoring an average
of 50 points per game this season.
"The Christians have the prem-
iere running back in all of Florida
high school football in Willie McLen-
don, who is a 6-2, 215 pound running
machine", Kizziah said. "The entire
team is huge, fast and have com-
pletely manhandled every team they
have played this year", the Gator
coach said.
"Not only do they have the
premiere running back in the state,

they also have his cousin, Charles
Brown, who is equally as big and fast
as McLendon is", Kizziah said.
"McLendon has rushed for 200 yards
or more per game in all but two games
in three years of playing high school
football", the Gator mentor said,
pointing out, "Our defense is going to
have to be at their best in this game to
keep us competitive".
Despite the superlatives which
seem to weight heavily in favor of the
Christians, Kizziah left no doubt but
what his Gators were taking the field
Friday night to win the game and
advance to the state finals in class
This is Kizziah's first venture
after the state crown with his Gators.
"We were knocked out of contention
the past two years in the last game of
the season by FAMU of Tallahassee."
Should the Gators win against
Jacksonville Friday night, they would
travel to south Floridd next Friday to
meet the winner of the Belle Glade
and Vero Beach game Friday night
for the state class 1-A championship.
Game time Friday night will be
7:30 local time.

Fear Can Cause A

Delay In Seeking '

Medical Attention

Many times people are afraid to
discover if a symptom might mean
that they have cancer for fear that it
will be true, or that finding the cause
will make it true. That's the kind of
faulty reasoning the fear of cancer
produces in some people. Such fear
often prevents them from getting an
examination that could save their life.
It should be stressed that early
detection is the cornerstone to the
cure of cancer, especially some types
of cancers. Ma y cancers are not fatal
any more. We are reaching a point
where chances for cure are very good
for such types as breast cancer,
Hodgkin's disease and leukemia.
Many years ago nearly everybody
died of these diseases; now the
majority are cured. On the other
.... in .-I itf e'. ogr e 6g -&- 11 .w -
$) toward the cure: of lung cancer.
Prevention is the answer here. This
disease is caused almost exclusively
by cigarette smoking.
Cancer is a word that covers more
than a hundred diseases a kind of
umbrella word, if you will. The
conditions affect different parts of the
body, display different symptoms,
and require different treatment. But
they all have one thing in common:
every cancer begins when one or more
cells, the smallest units of living
tissue, go on a rampage. Instead of
growing and dividing normally, they
multiply at a wild rate, out of control.
These outlaw cells Tform clusters'or
growths called tumors.
Sometimes a tumor can be felt as
a lump; but sometimes it lies too deep
within the body for its presence to be
obvious. Fortunately, most tumors
are not cancerous, and usually pose
little danger. These non-cancerous, or
benign (a word that described a type
of tumor whose cells do not spread)
tumors grow slowly and remain
where they started. A wart is an
example of a benign tumor. But
cancer cells and the tumor they cause
are highly dangerous. Unlike normal
cells they can split off from each
other, travel through the body and set
up outposts of disease.
How does cancer kill? Cancerous
growths can interfere with the healthy
functioning of the body in several
V ways. They can rob normal cells and
tissues of oxygen and food and
literally starve them to death. They
can grow so large that they squeeze
the life out of vital organs, or they can
invade and destroy organs such as the
'lungs and liver. More subtly, as in
cancer of the blood, they can upset the
body's immune defense system and
leave a patient helpless against a
variety of infections. "-

The important thing to remember
is that early detection of cancer
greatly increases the chances of cure.
Failure to see a physician because of a
fear of cancer is often groundless.
Most people who worry that they have
cancer would find that they do not and
could breathe much more easily, Your
local Cancer Society will be happy to
provide you with further information
about this disease and its early
detection and prevention.

A Little Water, Plenty of Fertilizer
and Hold Your Mouth Right
Roy Harper isn't quite sure what caused these turnips he's displaying to get
as large as they did. More than likely, it's just like fishing, if you catch a big
one, you must have "held your mouth right". Mr. Harper planted these
specimens from "Tokyo Cross" turnip seed approximately nine weeks ago at
his home on Wimico Drive in White City and harvested them last Friday. The
turnips averaged a little over seven pounds each. -Star photo

children's. language skills suffered
because their hearing problems
caused them to pay less attention in
"We observed the children's
behavior in the kindergarten class--
room and noted how often they
appeared to be distracted, daydream-
ing or otherwise not paying atten-
tion," she says.
"The children who suffered fre-
quent ear infections had twice as
many periods of inattentiveness as the
low-otitis media group.
"If you can't hear clearly, espe-
cially in a noisy preschool or day-care
center, you may just tune it out.
Listening and understanding what is
said take greater effort for children
with mild hearing loss."

Dr. Feagans recommended that,
preschool age children, even those
who appear healthy, have their
hearing checked once a year. Children
with signs of middle-ear infection
could be seated near the front of the
class and watched more closely to
make sure they pay attention.

Roll Correction

the eighth grade, were on the all A
honor roll.

leagues at the University of North
Carolina followed 44 children from
birth to age seven. They collected
detailed information about the child-
ren, first monitoring them closely for
signs of middle-ear infection, then
testing their language skills in kind-
ergarten and second grade.
Middle-ear disease is the second
most common reason that parents
take their children to a doctor,
according to Dr. Feagans.
"The incidence of otitis media is
highest in the first two years of life, a
time when children are beginning to
acquire language," she points out.
The disease often produces a
buildup of fluid in the middle ear,
resulting in mild to moderate hearing
loss. Hearing problems can recur
intermittently for as long as nine
months after the infection clears.
In more than half of middle-ear
infections, children show no outward
signs of illness. "Parents might never
know that their child is having
hearing problems," Dr. Feagans
Problems associated with middle-
ear infections are especially'common
in low-income children and children in
day care.
Dr. Feagans, whose background
is in both psychology and language
development, began her study when
she was .a senior investigator at the
Frank Porter Graham Child Develop-
ment Center at the University of
North Carolina.
Children were selected for the
study at birth. Beginning at six weeks
_ of age, they attended a day care
center, where their health was
monitored daily.
"All but one of the children had at
least one episode of otitis media by the
time they were three," Dr. Feagans
reports. "Thirty percent had nine or
more episodes."
Researchers also collected in-
formation about each child's IQ, the
mother's IQ, the mother's education
and the home environment.
The children's discourse ability,
or skill at storytelling, was measured
at age five and again at aqe seven.
'The researchers read stories to the
children and asked the children to
paraphrase them.
S Children were scored according to"
how many of a story's elements they
included when re-telling the story.
Two factors were strongest in
predicting a child's performance on
the language test: The child's IQ and
the number of middle-ear infections
he or she had suffered.
"The frequency of otitis media
was a better predictor of discourse
ability than the mother's IQ, the
mother's education or the quality of
the home environment," Dr. Feagans
The effect of middle-ear infection
was most pronounced for children.

Care Given to Christmas Tree Enhances Holiday

Attention In Selection and Proper and

by Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Agent
To many people the holiday
season is not complete without a
Christmas tree, there are a few things
you can look for to obtain the best tree
possible. Correct maintenance of the
tree is also important to extend its
longevity and retain its attractive-
Also any evergreen can function
as a Christmas tree, but there are
several which are particularly suit-
able. The scotch pine is one of the
most popular with pyramidal shape
and dense needles. The needles have a
blue tine and grows up to three inches
in length with a bushy appearance.
The Douglas fir is also a popular
choice. This tree has short needles
about one inch long with a silver band
under the surface. The balsom fir is
considered the traditional Christmas
tree of the Eastern United States. It
has short rounded needles with twigs
growing at right angles to the
branches. Many spruce trees are also spring
used for Christmas trees because of cate
their dense, symmetrical needles., man
When buying your tree, there are stum
several things to look for. Most tree

Spruce, on the' other hand, lose few
needles quickly. Fresher trees will than
hold their needles longer so the most tree

you'll want to keep it as fresh as

The tree can absorb up to a quart of

may be necessary. Make sure the

a good source of protein, as well as
many vitamins and minerals. In
addition to being very nutritious,
sprouts are inexpensive. Half-a-cup of
dried beans will explode into a quart
of sprouts, costing only about three
cents a serving.
Many methods of sprouting beans-
seem to give good results. The three
I'll discuss in this article. My
information on bean sprouts was
provided by Extension Vegetable
Specialists Jim Stephens, of the
University of Florida's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences.
The first step in sprouting is the
same for all three methods. After
buying some beans or seeds sold
specifically for sprouting, sort them
carefully, choosing only clean whole
specimens. Thoroughly wash about a
quarter of a cup of those you select
placing them in a bowl or jar and
cover them with lukewarm water. Let
the beans stand overnight. By morn-
ing they should have expanded to
about three times their dry size. Rinse
them well, and pour off all excess
water. Now, you're ready to process
with one of our three sprouting
methods. To use the first method,
place a couple of tablespoons of
soaked beans in a quart jar, cover the
top securely with nylon mesh or
cheese cloth. Turn the jar on its side,
so the beans form a thin layer, and
place the jar in a warm, dark humid
The next step is very important.
At least, three times every day, until
-the sprouts are ready, pour lukewarm
water into the jar, swirl it around, and
drain it off. The seeds should be kept
moist, but not wet.
Depending on the beans or seeds
you're using, sprouts will develop in
three to five days. Rinse and drain the
sprouts as soon as they reach
optimum length, and before rootlets
appear. If you're germinating mug
beans, the sprouts should be one and a
half to two and a half inches long when
they're harvested. Alfalfa sprouts are
best when they're about one inch long,
Soy bean sprouts should be no longer
than one-half inch before harvest. And

sesame and sunflower sprouts should
be used as soon as they're visible.
To employ the second method,
spread a couple of tablespoons of
soaked beans on several layers of
dampened paper towels, fitted into a
colander, or perforated plastic tray.
Wrap the container in a black plastic
bag but leave the opening loose, to
allow ventilation. As with the first
method, the seeds must be rinsed
thoroughly, three times each day.
When the sprouts first appear, you
can replace the black plastic bag with
a clear one, so you'll be able to tell
when the sprouts have reached their
proper length.
To use the third method, just
place a couple of tablespoons of
soaked beans in the bottom of a new
clay flowerpot, that's been saturated
with water. Place a cloth screen over
the bottom hole, and cover the entire
pot with a layer of muslin or cheese
cloth. As previously described, the
beans should be rinsed and drained

Your Broker In These

Uncertain Times

By: Gerald Lewis
Comptroller of Florida
Often Floridians have a question
about a securities broker, mortgage
broker or state-chartered bank, and
dcoi't know who to ask.
Perhaps you've had a call at home
from an investment salesman offering
sky-high interest rates. Or you want to
know whether a mortgage broker is
properly licensed with the state.
One toll-free number can help
consumers with all these questions -
1-800-'848-3792. The Comptroller's Con-
sumer Information Hotline was estab-
lished in 1986 to help Floridians with
all areas under the Comptroller's
jurisdiction securities, mortgage
brokers, finance companies, state-
chartered financial institutions and
abandoned property. Most calls are to
check licensing or file complaints.
We're concerned that not every-
one who needs to know about the
hotline is aware of it. To promote the
hotline's use, I recently held press
conferences across Florida. Televi-
sion stations are beginning to broad-
cast public service announcements to
inform their viewers about the*
toll-free line. E.F. Hutton & Co.
contributed $40,000 to produce the
announcements as part of an agree-
ment with the state related to its
handling of customer funds.
The public service announcement
in the Tampa-St. Petersburg area
focuses on mortgage fraud. Among
the fraudulent brokers who preyed on
Gulf Coast residents is Charles
Michael Leigh, who is serving a,
15-year prison sentence. Leigh ob-
tained advance fees from victims
through his company, Old Republic
The danger of phony financial
institutions are portrayed to consum-
ers in the Miami area, These firms
don't have the assets or the capabili-
ties to conduct banking transactions.
An example was First International
Trust Corp., which operated an
advance fee scheme offering letters of,
credit as agents of phony institutions
until a court shut it down in August.
The video announcement in Jack-
-sonville describes home improvement
fraud. In some cases, home imprOve-
ment con artists take advance fees
and disappear without performing the
repair-work. In other cases, they trick
homeowners into signing mortgages"
on their home's when they think they
are signing home improvement con-
Consumers are alerted to securi-
ties and financial fraud in the public
service announcement broadcast in
Tallahassee. Among the con artists

who operated out of Tallahassee was
Doris Elaine Daugherty, who was
jailed for stealing more than $1
million from Floridians through her
tax consulting business. Also, authori-
ties raided a fraudulent telephone
sales "boiler room" in Tallahassee
last year.
In Orlando, consumers are
warned against investing in exotic6"
securities such as investments in
worm farms, solar heating equipment
and popcorn, all of which were
peddled by con artists in the Orlando
vicinity. One company, Culture
Farms, sold investments in a milk
culture for the purported manufac-
ture of makeup, but all the investors
ended up with was sour milk.
No matter what part of Florida
you live, if you have been approached
for one of these offers, check it out.
Call the Comptroller's Consumer
Information Hotline toll-free at 1-800-
848-3792. Operators are standing by to
help you with y6ur problem from 9
a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through

SSI Eligibility

People in the North Florida area
who receive supplemental security
income (SSI) payments have their
eligibility redetermined periodically.
SSI is a Federal program admin-
istered by Social Security that pro-
vides a basic cash income to people 65
or older or blind or disabled who have
little income and little in the way of
personal property or real estate.
Money to make SSI payment comes
from U.S. Treasury general funds, not
Social Security taxes.
The purpose of the redetermin-
ation is to make sure the people
getting these payments continue to be
eligible and that tlhey are getting the
right amount.
The amount of a person's SSI
payment depends on his or her other
income and living arrangements.
People getting these payments are
required to promptly report any
change in their circumstances that
can affect their payment rate or their
The periodic redeterminations
ard~a part of the continuing process to'
make'sure that SSI payments go only
to thbse people who are eligible.
Payments are stopped if a person dpes
not cooperate with Social Security.
For more information on the SSI
program or about Social Security, call

either species. Proceeds from the
sales of the stamps are used for
research and management of the
respective species.
Although the rules for each
contest are similar, there are slight
variations in how entries will be

Floridians Attached

to State's Wildlife

A research report, produced by
Game and Fresh Water Fish Commis-
sion nongame biologist Mark Damian
Duda, indicates Floridians have a
surprisingly deep attachment: to this
state's wildlife.
Based on a review of scientific
literature and dozens of public opinion
polls, Duda concluded that wildlife is
important to a majority of Floridians,
and most of this state's residents feel
more money should be spent to
preserve wild creatures and their

Duda concluded that most Florida
residents believe that officials should
prohibit development in environmen-

mental quality is decaying in this
"To me, the most surprising
result of this analysis was the
overwhelming support for conserva-
tion efforts," Duda said. "Floridians
are aware of their wildlife. It's a
source of enjoyment and pride to
them, and they realize the consequen-
ces wildlife will suffer if we. don't
protect it during the current popula-
