Jacksonville Has too Much McLendon for Gators to Handle


Willie McLendon proved to be
more high school football runner than
any team should be expected to stop
last Friday night, as he dashed for 219
yards and dashed the Wewahitchka
Gator hopes of a state class 1-A
football championship. The Jackson-
ville University Christians sent Mc-
Lendon and his running tandem,
Champ Brown-who gained 138 yards
-charging against the Gator defense
time after time as they rode a big


second half to hand the Gators their
second defeat of the season, 40-13.
The Gator defense, .which had
held stout enemies at bay all year
long, handled the ,Christians for the
first half, but the team which had
averaged 50 points scored against its
opponents all year long, proved to be
more than the small but game Gators
could handle for 48 minutes.
The Christians scored twice in the
second quarter, when McLendon


bulled over on a three yard plunge on
the first play of the period. On their
next possession, the Gators couldn't
move and dropped back to punt. The
ball went over punter David Paul's
head and into the end zone, where
Paul covered it for a Jacksonville
safety.
The Christians scored again with
less than a minute left in the first half,
when McLendon broke loose on a 21
yard dash for the goal line.


A Gator penalty early in the
second half kept a Jacksonville drive
going and resulted in a third McLen-
don score of the game on a 35 yard
run.
The Gators bounced right back
with their first points of the evening,
when David Paul took the kick-off,
tucked it under his arm and weaved
his way through the middle and won a
foot race to the Jacksonville goal line
for an 85 yard scoring run.


The Gators scored again in the
last period, when Ronald Mayhann
hauled in a Durand McLeod pass for a
29 yard score.
Jacksonville scored three times in
the last period to put the game on ice
and earn a chance at the champion-
ship game this Friday night.
The win over the Gators.Jkept the
Christian's season record intact with
12 wins and no losses.
The 10-2 record of the Gators for


the season, was their best ever.

Port St. Joe's basketball Sharks
opened their season at home Tuesday,
taking their first win in three outings.
The Sharks spotted the Tigers
with a six point lead in the first period,
and bounded back in the second period
to take the lead for good.
The Sharks had Curtis Beard
pumping 28 points through the nets
and Darrin Callaway with 21 points on
their way to a 77-53 rout of the Tigers.
The Sharks put 32 points on the
board in the final period, while the
Tigers had only 21 in a final attempt to
pull the game out of the fire.
Beard pumped four three-point
shots through the nets to help his team
in their initial win of the year.

FLA. HI 71, PSJ 67
Friday of last week, the Sharks
lost a close one to a tough Florida
High team in Tallahassee. The
Demons took a 71-67 decision over the
Sharks in a game which was decided
in overtime.
The Demons scored 10 points-all
free throws-in the overtime period
while the Sharks had only six in the
extra period.
Florida High built up a 16-7 lead in
the first period, which has proven to
be the Shark's weak point in the first
three games of the season. The Sharks
roared back in the second, stanza to
knot the score and the lead see-sawed
back and forth for the rest of the
game, which ended at regulation time
in a 61-61 tie.
Curtis Beard had the hot hand for


1987 SHARKS: Seated, from left, Russell Cherry, Willie Hamilton. Standing, from left: Coach Jim Belin, David
Smith, Darrin Callaway, Carlos Julius and Marvin Barnes, Curtis Beard, Danny Moree and Eric Langston.


Sharks Return Four Starters


There isn't much time between
the end of the football season and the
beginning of basketball season to put
a team together. Especially is this so
in small schools like Port St. Joe
which uses the same players in both
sports.
Head basketball coach, Jim Belin
has always been successful in fielding
a respectable team for that first game
of the cage season, which usually
holds its own until the holiday break
when they have time to really practice
and mold themselves into a team.
This season is no exception. With
only" three days of concentrated
basketball practice, the Sharks took
on big Bay High and played them a
respectable game. Then three days
later they tackled Florida High in
Tallahassee and came within an
eyelash of defeating the Devils in their
own hades.
The Sharks will get into some real
practice time over the holidays in the
annual Christmas Classic tourna-
ment.
Belin has put together an unusual
team this year, fielding four seniors
and one junior as his starting five.
From there it's a senior, a junior and
a sophomore as the substitutes he
goes to most in a game.
The Sharks ended the season last
year with a respectable season, but
were no state championship threat as
they usually are.
This year, the Sharks start the
season with five returning starters on
the hardwood, headed up by sharp-
shooting Curtis Beard, who scorched
the nets all last year and has started
off this year with his same tactics.
Beard is a senior, who averaged
22.3 points per game in 1986.
Carlos Julius is back for his
second year as a starter, averaging
7.9 points per game. Julius, a senior
is a steady player who gives his usual
good performance.
-:- 'inav is another senior
in his second year on the starting five


for the Sharks. Callaway is another
steady player, who handles the ball
well and is scoring an average 9.1
points per game.
Marvin Hamilton is the third two
year starter on the teamn, with a 6.4
point average. Hamilton bruised a
knee against Blountstown Tuesday
night and will be lost to the Sharks for
about six weeks, according to Coach
Belin.
Junior David Barnes is the only
first year starter on the first five.
Barnes doesn't score many points, but
his quickness and fast reactions are
an asset to a team which has to rely on
speed and quickness this year.
Pushing the starters for their
positions are sophomores Russell
Cherry and Eric Langston, both of
whom have seen some action this
year. Senior Chris Coachman, junior
Danny Moree and freshman Willie
Smith are in their first year on the
varsity squad, and are getting a close
look for the future by the coaching
squad.
One of those substitutes, Willie
Smith, is right up there with the


leaders on the varsity squad" in
rebounds. Smith, Hamilton and Julius
all had six rebounds in Tuesday
night's game.
Belin says his team this year isn't
tall enough to rely on their height. "In
fact, we're not .very tall at all.
Actually we're just a little below
average, but I think we'll make up for
a lot of our lack of height with our
quickness, our speed and our willing-
ness to mix it up in fighting for
rebounds. We'll be competitive this
year", Belin said.

Jan Richardson Attends National G.S. Meet


Jan Richardson, a Port St. Joe
community volunteer, recently at-
tended a national educational oppor-
tunity for Girl Scout volunteers at
Edith Macy Conference Center in
Briarcliff Manor, New York. She is a
field representative for the Girl Scout
Council of the Apalachee Bend.
Owned and operated by Girl


Scouts of the U.S.A. Edith Macy
Conference Center offers courses to
help adults acquire knowledge and
skills, refresh capabilities in work
related areas and prepare for further
career growth. In addition, the
sessions help Girl Scout adults
increase their understanding of the
Girl Scout program and goals.


Jan is also the leader of Junior
Girl Scout Troop 155 and has been an
active volunteer for many years. The
workshop she attended was on plan-
ning and organizing for membership
success and stressed community
organization team strategies. This
concept of team approach to member-
ship development focuses on utilizing
the existing delivery system in a
council to meet the needs of the total
community to be served. The benefit


of such a hands-on strategy restores
stability to current membership while
reaching out to new membership with
increased effectiveness and credibi-
lity.
Jan was awarded a travel scho-
larship from the Apalachee Bend
Council and Girl Scouts of the U.S.A.
Since the course was accredited for
continuing education units by the
Council for Non-Collegiate Continuing
Education, she will receive 2.6 CEUs.


The Taunton Family

a Christmas choral celebration by
Larry Wolfe, Bob Benson and Don
March entitled "Thou Shall Call His
Name.. .Jesus at the Mexico Beach
United Methodist Church on Sunday,
December 13 at 6:00 p.m.
Judge David Taunton and his wife
Abigail operate their home in Wewa-
hitchka, and nineteen children, in-
cluding two of their own, live in the
home. They are all participating in this
presentation. Judge Taunton will read
some of the words of Isaiah and


Abigail and some of the children will
perform solos during the musical
performance. Hazel Anderson will be
the narrator. The performance is
under the direction of Dr. John H.
Anderson, retired music professor.
The White Christmas Program
has always been one of the most
important activities of the Mexico
Beach United Methodist Church. Last
year the church raised $1241.00 for the
Methodist Children's Home in Selma,
Ala.
A reception will be held in the
fellowship hall at the church.


Jaycees Raise $318.00

Toward "Toys for Tots"

By: Gene Dickey
The Port St. Joe collected $218.00
in the traditional blankets at the Port
St. Joe Christmas parade. An addi-
tional $100 was added to the kitty
through the first place float featuring
the toys donated from the community.
Toys for Tots chairman Tom Watson
comments, "This will be enough to
fund the Toys for Tots party on Dec. 19
at the high school which will feature
lunch and an appearance by Santa
Claus in addition to the toys. A special
thanks to Gregg Burch for designing
the float and Chris Acree and Joe
Demo who headed the construction
trewgJ4i d-did'f super-job
decoratng his truck and pulling the
flo6 at both the Port St. Joe and
Panama City Christmas parades.
The Jaycees remind everyone
who wishes to donate toys or clothes to
contact any Jaycee before this
weekend. Jaycees will be- busy
sorting, cleaning, repairing and wrap-
ping the toys this weekend. The real
work is just beginning and the sooner
the donations are received, the sooner
final preparations can be completed.


Maddox Resigns
Jaycee Position
Donnie Maddox, Management
Development Vice President of the
,Port St. Joe Jaycees, resigned his
office this past Sunday during a Board
of Directors meeting. Donnie, who has
been very active within the Jaycee
organization, cited differences in
opinion as far to the scope and
direction of the group as reasons for
his decision.
Maddox commented, "I feel that
rather than subject the membership
to what has become an unproductive
element that they deserve an atmos-
phere more relaxed and conducive to
progress than one of conflict." The
community is not to worry though as
Maddox plans to remain very in-
volved in civic affairs working with
other groups and organizations here
and throughout the county.
"It is my desire that the commu-
nity benefit from the time and talent


that its youth can provide and to see
this through as one of many goals",
Maddox concluded.

"We Must Do Away with 'Hand Slap' Sentences"


State Atty. Appleman Takes Hard Line


S The average criminal who is sent
to a state prison to do a stint for a
crime he has committed will serve
only 20 percent of his sentenced time,
according to State Attorney Jim


Appleman, speaking before the Rot-
ary Club last Thursday. Appleman

and other information concerning the
judicial softening toward criminals

HUNTING


which has become routine in Florida
and in the United States.
"We have become soft in the
handling of those who are a threat to
society", Appleman said. "Florida is
bluffing when they make the state-
ment that we are waging a war
against crime, and the criminals are
calling that bluff", Appleman
charged.
As an example, the State Attor-
ney, whose job it is to prosecute those
charged with crimes, said that in
several criminal charges in Florida,
including fifth convictions of using
drugs, committing a felony or even
auto theft, the convicted criminal may
get a sentence of one year in prison
and a fine. With all the possible days
off for various reasons, the criminal
could actually be in prison only 11
weeks of that 52 week sentence.
Appleman said that at least one
fourth of those currently doing time in


state prisons are there because of
drug related charges.
On a local level, the speaker said
the crime rate in Gulf County had
actually decreased last year by 13.3
percent while the rate in the state had
climbed by 13 percent and the rate in
the Panhandle area had climbed by
six percent. Appleman credited Gulf's
reduction in crime rate to the increase
in arrests made for crimes perpetrat-
ed.
The 14th Circuit prosecutor had
his own ideas of how to correct the
current glut of population trying to get
into Florida prisons and to reduce the
growing costs of keeping a person
incarcerated for a crime.
"First, private citizens must
share fheir concern with elected
officials for a solution to the problem
to be worked out."
The speaker said that rather than


giving automatic reductions on time
to be served that the prisoner be
forced to earn any time off for good
behavior he might receive. "If he has
to perform in order to earn the credit
toward his sentence, there will be less
tearing up of prison facilities by
prisoners and inmates will behave
themselves better".
Appleman said, above all, the
state must stop administering "hand
slap" justice. "If a person is convicted
of breaking the law, he should be
punished for that act to a degree
severe enough to get his attention".

Jim Appleman, State Attorney for the 14th Judicial Circuit, speaks to the
Rotary Club. -Star photo


Jim and Ralph had a $100 bet on
the game and Jim had to pay off,
which he did, after a fashion. Ralph
showed up at Rotary Club meeting
Thursday and Jim had placed his
winnings on the table before Ralph.
The pay-off was made in the form of
10,000 pennies, which isn't all that
much money,, but it's a lot of
pennies. Ralph is shown above with
his 10,000 pennies, which filled the
.sack and the several coin rollers on
the table. Ralph said he is going to
eat a lot of oysters on the half shell
in the next few weeks and pay
for them with pennies!


Winner!
When you bet on a college
football game around Port St. Joe, it
might cost you more than money...
especially if you should win.
This past week, big little Jim
McNeill, who is a Gator fan straight
from the slough, had to pay off to
Ralph Roberson, a seventh genera-
tion Seminole, when the Gators had
their hide stripped off November 28.

Kids Tempted with Drug Use at Early Age


"By the time a kid reaches the
seventh grade, they are already being
approached with experimenting with
alcohol and drugs", Charlotte Pierce,
said, speaking to the Kiwanis Club
Tuesday. Pierce is a member of the
board of directors of "Just Say NO",
in Port St. Joe, a committee involved
in formation and support of local clubs
with a purpose of combatting use of
alcohol and drugs by teen agers.
Pierce said kids are faced with
the drug problem at an early age. "By
the time they are in the fourth grade,
30 percent of the students are being
pressured to try drugs. By the time
they reach the seventh grade, 43
percent have experimented", she
said. Pierce's statistics were those
discovered by the national committee
of "Just Say No".
Every school in Gulf County has
its "Just Say No" chapters which
have active on-going programs to
encourage kids to stay away from the
addictive substances.
The speaker said there are
presently 16,000 chapters of the "Just
Say No" clubs in high schools
throughout the nation today, after
beginning with a chance remark by
first lady Nancy Reagan in a
California address to teen agers
concerning drugs. After Mrs. Reagan
had finished speaking, a teen-ager
asked, "Well, what can we say when
someone asks us to just try drugs"?
Mrs. Reagan pondered the ques-
tion a few seconds and then replied,
"Just Say No"!

Podocarpus: A Diversified Plant Say You Saw It In The Star


for Adding Greenery and Beauty to Your Landscape Plan


by Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Agent
A popular landscape evergreen
that will thrive in all parts of Florida
and can serve many purposes in the
home landscape. This plant is cold
hardy and salt tolerant. So, it would be
an excellent addition to a coastal
landscape. In this article I will tell you
: what it is, and how to grow it in your
landscape.
These trees will grow fairly.large
up to 40 to 50 feet tall. They make very
good -specimen plants in the land-
scape, and they are useful as screen"
* plantings; or in tall hedges. Podocar-
pus foliage is widely used in floral
designs, and many flower shops grow
podocarpus for just that purpose.
Today, we'll describe two types of
podocarpus available to Florida gar-
deners and offer some suggestions on
raising them in your landscape. Part
of my information was provided by
Extension Urban Horticulturist Dr.
Robert Black of the University of
Florida's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences.
Of the two types of podocarpus
that will grow in our state, one is the
macrophylla, a tall tree with will-like
leaves. The leaves are dark green on
the surface and paler underneath.
They may reach four inches in length
and about a quarter of an inch in
width. Macrophylla trees produce
both male and female flowers. The
other podocarpus that grows well in
Florida is the nagi. It reaches a height
of 40 feet, and its leaves are somewhat

larger than those of the macrophylla.
Podocarpus need a well drained,
improved soil, and a location that's
either in full sun or partial shade.
When setting plants in the ground,
make sure you plant them at the same
depth at which they were growing in
the nursery. A saucer shaped depres-
sion around each plant will help hold
water. You should fill these depres-
sions daily for a few days. After the
plants are established, they will need
only occasional watering.
Podocarpus are fertilized accord-

ing to size. For example, a tree with a
trunk less than six inches thick will
need two or three pounds of an all
purpose garden fertilizer for every
inch of diameter. Larger trees need
five pounds of fertilizer for each inch
to trunk diameter. Podocarpus should
be fertilized each year. But, the total
amount can be divided into two or
th:ee applications. If you notice that
your trees haven't really grown very
much for their age, you should apply
less fertilizer to prevent possible .root
injury.
Podocarpus can be started from
seeds or cuttings. Seeds are often
found sprouting while still attached to
the freshly stalk of the parent plant.
Tip cuttings used for propagation will
require 10 to 12 weeks to root.
The macrophylla variety has been
used to a great extent in foundation


plantings and hedges. This plant is
such a rapid grower that you'll need to
shear it often, to keep it within the
bounds of your landscape design.
Problems you may encounter
with your podocarpus include scale
insects, leaf spot, root rot, and
nematodes. Scale insects attach them-
selves ttwigs and leaves, and suck
out plant juices. Ask your garden
supply dealer for a recommended
pesticide. Leaf spot also affects
foliage. In severe cases, leaves will
drop from the tree prematurely.
Control measures include using steril-
ized planting soil, and applying a
fungicide. Root rot is a serious
problem, which may cause a plants
death. No practical control is avail-
able for this ailment. So, you'll have to
depend on good cultural practices to
avoid root rot infestation.


Home sweet home, they say. But
how safe is home?
"We think of accidents on the
highway and on the job, but think,
'Home is safe, isn't it?' ponders an
Institute of Food and Agricultural
Sciences (IFAS) safety expert.
"True, the highways are danger-
ous. About 45,000 people died on the
nation's highways every year com-
pared to 20,000 accidental deaths in
the home." -
But the 20,000 accidental deaths in
American homes is nearly double the
11,500 on-the-job fatalities each year,
said Dr. William Becker, an IFAS
extension safety specialist at the
University of Florida in Gainesville.
"More than 6,000 people die as a
result of falls alone. Nearly 4,000 die
from fires, and an equal number from
poisoning. Suffocation claims 2,500
lives," said Becker, citing National:
Safety Council statistics.
"Another 0,600 die from firearm
accidents, drownings, electrocution,
burns and explosions. More than three
million people across the country
suffer serious injuries at hlie every
year."
The situation is no better in

Medicare

Insurance Rate

Takes A Hike
The Medicare hospital insurance
deductible, the amount a Medicare
patient is responsible for when he or
she first receives hospital insurance
services in a benefit period, will
increase to $540 in 1988. The 1987
deductible is $520.
Also scheduled to increase are the
per-day amounts patients are respon-
sible for after specific lengths of stay
in a hospital or skilled nursing
facility.
After 60 days of inpatient care in a
benefit period in 1988, Medicare will
pay for, all covered services except
$135 a day. The 1987 figure is $130.
For each reserve day, Medicare
will pay for all covered services
except $270 a day. The 1987 figure is
$260.
After 20 days of care in a skilled
nursing facility, Medicare will pay all
covered service except $67.50 a day.
The 1987 figure is $65.
The basic monthly premium for
Medicare medical insurance will be
$24.80. The 1987 basic premium is
$17.90. Some people pay more than
this rate because there were periods
of time they could have had this
protection but did not.
The monthly premium for hospi-
tal insurance for those people not
otherwise eligible for this protection
will be $234 in 1988. The 1987 premium
is $226.
The medical insurance annual
deductible will remain $75, unchanged
from 1987.
More information about Social
Security and Medicare can be ob-
tained from any Social Security office.


Florida, Becker said. Florida aver-
ages 1,000 fatalities in home acci-
dents, five percent of the national
figure, he explained. Deaths from
fires average 200, and 300 from, falls
alone, he added.
"Florida has a high rate of falls as
the result of the large population of
the elderly. Last year, 291 people died
from falls. Fires exacted 170 lives,"
Becker said.
He said a major cause of fire
accidents in Florida homes is neglect
of the heating system.
"Because we use our heaters only'.
a' few days in the year, we forget to
give them the attention they deserve. '
Many of the heaters are poorly
maintained," Becker said.
"The very young and senior
citizens are the most vulnerable to
home fires. Also, think of the trauma,
the suffering, the costs, to those with
burn injuries and to their family and
friends."
This nationwide carnage can be
prevented if Americans put more
safety measures into their lives at
-hone, at work, and on the road, said
the safety expert.
"Don't end up saying, 'I should
have put -more safety in my life,' "
Becker said.

County Begins Preliminary Preparation


A common emergency telephone
number for all of Gulf County took a
giant step toward reality Tuesday,
when the Gulf County Commission
took concrete steps to get the first
phase of preparation for the emergen-
cy call signal out of the way.
A few weeks ago, the Commission
agreed to name administrative as-
sistant Larry Wells as the person to
get the mechanics lined up to
accomplish the task of naming all
streets in the county, correcting any
double naming of streets and assign-
41 ing an address number to every piece
of property designated for building
purposes in the county.
.Tuesday, Commissioner Billy
Branch asked for a progress report on
the task, quizzing Wells as to just what
had been done thus far.
Wells said the project was already
in motion, with Dan Christie, an
assistant in Property Appraiser Kes-
ley Colbert's office, is being charged
with locating, naming and identifying
every road and street on a county
map. "Christie is to identify all streets
which carry the same name as
another street so one name can be
changed. We're also making plans to
get every lot identified by number and
the number assigned to the owner",
he pointed out."
The naming f streets and num-
bering of houses and buildings is one
of the main pre-requisites of getting
the 911 emergency number installed
and put into use.
Wells said he is also already in
touch with the St. Joseph Telephone.
and Telegraph Company and has
meetings scheduled to begin talks"
about putting in the necessary equip-
ment to operate.the system.
Building inspector, Dewayne
Manuel informed the county they
were nearer to meeting location
requirements than they think. "We
already have a numberlingsystem set
up and our department is providing a
number to every new structure which
is built in the county", he said. Manuel
said his department hasn't taken any
steps toward correcting or supplying
street' names, but the, numbering
system has already been laid out. "'It
was a necessity, in our department
that this be done so we already have it
in place. The county merely has to
inform property owners what their
number is".
Wells said Christie had informed
him of the possibility of a system
being already in place and he was
planning to contact Manuel this week
to bring him into. the picture. "We set
all this up last week and Manuel was
out of his office attending a course at
the time", Wells said.
Branch then stressed a need to
extend the numbering system to
White City, Howard Creek and'other
small communities in the county.
"It's all done", Manuel said. "When
we had to come up with a system for
St.Joe Beach when the water system
was put in, we went ahead and drew
up a system for the whole county",
Manuel pointed out.
Being able to properly pinpoint
the location of a specific emergency is
a necessary ingredient of the 911
system. Sheriff Al Harrison pointed
out the system is needed whether 911


is installed or not. "We have a terrible
time finding some places where we
are called simply because there are
no street names and no house
numbers in certain areas of the
county".
Commissioner Peters made a
motion to require property owners to
put up identification numbers and
Commissioner Money seconded it, but
Commissioner Branch successfully
argued the Board should give resi-
dents ample opportunity to install the
numbers voluntarily before requiring
them to do anything. Branch was
successful in his argument and the
motion failed on a 3-2 vote.
Linda Bordelon, an executive of
St. Joseph Telephone said other small
counties in their service area are also
looking at the system, particularly
Calhoun and Franklin counties., "The
system is installed at little to no cost


to the county and is operated by the
dispatchers of the county sheriff
departments." Bordelon said the
installation is paid for by an extra
charge of 50 cents or less made
against the telephone service. As soon
as the system is paid off, the extra
charge is either dropped or reduced to
pennies to pay any operating costs.
One of the things Wells says he
must discuss with Bordelon is the
installation charge. The last estimate
of the costs were considerably less
than $10,000. A year ago, Bordelon
reckoned the phone surcharge would
not have to remain in force more than
a year and a half to two years.
ORDINANCE INTRODUCED
An ordinance was introduced to
the Commission for a first reading
Tuesday, which would provide funds
for installation of an electronic
security system in the Courthouseind


the court room complex.
The new ordinance would assess a
$5.00 charge against any civil action,
suit or proceeding which comes to the
court for settlement. .
Clerk Benny Lister estimated the
number of cases would be approxi-
mately 300 per year.
In conjunction with the ordinance,
the Commission received bids Tues-
day for installation of a silent alarm
system in every office of the court-
house, which would activate an alarm
in the Sheriff's office if the alarm
were set off.
Bids for the new system ranged
from $2,642 to $8,234. The Board tabled
the bids until a committee composed
of Wells and Commissioners Nathan
Peters, Jr., and Eldridge Money can
take a look at the specifications of

PD Cracking Down On

Sidewalk Bike Riders


Port St. Joe's new police chief
hasn't wasted any time in starting
some of the changes he promised in
taking over the department Monday
of last week.
Carl "Bucky" Richter said he was
going to upgrade the image. of the
department and make them more
visible in the community.
The first thing Richter did was
outfit the officers in new snappy
two-tone blue uniforms.
The next thing Richter has
undertaken is to stop bike riders from
riding their cycles on the sidewalks of
Reid Avenue.
"We're beginning this campaign
by appealing to the parents to instruct
their children not to ride their bikes on
the sidewalk. If that doesn't work we
will take further steps, but we're
going to put an end to it",Richter said.
The chief said he or his depart-
ment isn't trying to be mean or ugly,
but the practice, which has been a

dangerous both for the bike riders and
for people using the downtown area.
"Several elderly people have been
hit or nearly hit by children riding
bikes on the sidewalk when they came
out of business houses", Richter said.
"It's only a matter of time before
someone is going to be hurt if it isn't
corrected". The police chief said the
bike riding on Reid Avenue was one of
the first complaints he received after
taking over the reins of the depart-
ment.
"It's been a rel problem for a
long time", Richter said. "Both
bicycles and skateboards are causing
a hazard on the sidewalk, especially
for more elderly people, so we must
stop it", he concluded.
Richter said that after a short
while, to allow parents to handle the
problem, the department will begin
taking more stern steps to remedy the
problem.

Prefer Prison Over



Life In Cuba?

With Cuban prisoners tearing up two of our Federal prisons
over the last two weeks and the presentation State Attorney Jim
Appleman made to the Rotary Club last Thursday, it is proof
certain that our prison system here in the United States and in
Florida isn't exactly what we citizens thought it was.
Here we had the mistaken belief that our prisons were there
for the purpose of incarcerating the bad guys of our society and
keep them from doing dirty deeds against all us solid citizens.
The Cubans showed us the prisons ate places where those
who want to make a public statement can make it with all the
force they want to and nobody will do them harm--except
maybe some of their fellow prisoners.
Here in Florida, our judicial system appears to be more
interested in pampering the prisoners than it is in protecting
the citizens of the remainder of the state. We also learn that a
person sent to a Florida prison can expect to spend only a small
part of his sentence in the jug before he is let out because of
either overcrowding or because keeping him there might be
"cruel and unusual punishment".
Heaven forbid that we here in Florida should ever be guilty
of treating people like Ted Bundy in a "cruel and unusual"
way. We must protect his sensibilities and keep him as
comfortable and entertained as possible.
Our equivalent of a District Attorney here in Northwest
Florida told the Rotary Club that a person who finally gets a jail
term of maybe a year in jail and possibly a fine, after several
prior arrests, may actually spend 11 weeks of that year in the
pokey before his so-called debt to society is considered paid by
our corrections system.
Phooey!
From what we view, a positive display of how prisoners
view our prisons here in the United States was shown
graphically by the Cuban prisoners recently. They had rather
stay in prison in the United States than be sent back to Cuba.
That should tell is either that our jails are really no problem
to a person, or Cuba is pretty rugged.



He'll Need Our Help

So we have a new Police Chief here in Port St. Joe.
Last Monday, Carl Richter abandoned a nice, secure job
with a substantial retirement program and assumed the duties
as the police chief of our city, where he must please at least
three City Commissioners or he can be tossed out on his ear.
That places Richter in. a position of either producing or
being replaced. That's not all bad, because it will keep him
from becoming complacent on his job and will always remind
him of a need to keep things in order or have a good explanation
why he is not.
We expect Richter to do Port St: Joe a fine job -as'police
chief and stay in the jobjust as long.as- he .wishes. toL We have -.
confidence in him and that he will be an effective police chief.
The new head of the city law enforcement agency will do us
a fine job if we help him along the way, we believe. He's going to
need our cooperation, our support, and our encouragement as
well as our cooperation if he is going to achieve his goal of
building a police department our community can be proud of.
We hope the people will get behind Richter as they should,
and help him to reach his idealistic goals. We also hope Richter
will remain flexible enough to recognize when someone is
trying to improve his performance with small criticisms and
not just trying to find fault.
Both the city and Richter deserve all the breaks they can
get.


A Russian Politician.
James Kilpatrick wrote the other day, that Premiere
Gorbachev came across as a nation's leader who could hold his
own in any U.S. Congress filibuster and come out in good shape.
The thing we wonder, is this a quality of all men who would
aspire to be politicians or is it a learned reflex one gains from
associations with the job?

One Christmas I got a bicycle. It
was a brand new, genuine, red and
wiite Western Flyer. Had one of those
torpedo looking lights mounted on the
front fender. I think back to that bike
and that particular Christmas morn-
ing now and wonder if my Dad was up
half the night putting that thing
together. Come to think of it he could
have been up all night my little
brother got one just like it.
It was cold, overcast, wet, windy
and just plain nasty outside but that
didn't deter us a bit. Hey, we had real
Western Flyers. We didn't even wait
for Mom to open her present from Dad
- it was probably a bath robe of some
kind; seems like that's what Dad got
Mom every Christmas. Dad wouldn't


say much, just watch everybody ooh
and awh and then get embarrassed
when it was time to open his gift. As
for older brother Leon, it didn't mat-
ter what he got he wasn't going to
let us play with it anyway.
Half dressed, Dave and I turned
the lights on and off and pulled on
those red and white rubber streamers
that hung off the handle bar grips as
we rolled our bikes outside. As we
headed for the road Dad said, "You
boys will have those batteries run
down before it gets dark."
Mom said, "Do be careful."
Be careful! You ever heard that
one before? Shoot-a-mile, me and
David Mark could both ride. We learn-
ed on Leon's old bike. And Jo Gooch or

about your first bike. You know what I

I was past Terry Kennon's and
almost to the old swimming pool when.
I decided to turn on my light. It was
eight o'clock in the morning and
broad daylight but a fellow has got to
check out his light. You've got to prac-
tice flipping that switch so you'll be
ready when the time comes. A man
never knows when he might need to

there's some philosophy for you.

"ETAOIN SHRDLL


fI


Isn't Thursday the Perfect


I REALLY DON'T know why I
don't think of these things when the
timing would be more in keeping with
the-season, but such is life.
The other night, I woke up in the
middle of the night, wide awake,
pondering the thought, why does
Thanksgiving always come on Thurs-
day? I know it's because the late
President Franklin Delano Roosevelt
decreed that henceforth the United
States should observe Thanksgiving
on the fourth Thursday of each
month; and so we have since that
time.
Appropriately this nocturnal
equivalent to a brilliant light going on
in my brain came on the night after I
had put away a child's portion of good
. groceries on said Thanksgiving day.


Before President Roosevelt de-
creed that henceforth, throughout this
.land, all red-blooded Americans
would observe Thanksgiving on the
fourth Thursday of the month of
November, it was observed on the last
Thursday of November..
Sometimes the month of Novem-
ber has five Thursdays in its make-up
on the calendar, but notice the day of
Thanksgiving was still scheduled to
arrive on a Thursday.
Not a Monday, Tuesday, Wednes-
day, Friday, Saturday or Sunday; but
always on a Thursday. Now isn't that
odd?
: + + + + ++
TAKE CHRISTMAS, our next
holiday. It is always on December 25,
but December 25 isn't always on any
particular day. This year, it falls on
Friday. Last year, it was on Thurs-
day. Next year, it will be on Sunday. It
will jump two days because next year


is a leap year.
The Fourth of July always comes
'on July 4, and not on a given day of the
week.
Memorial Day is always May 30,
not the second Tuesday of May, or
even the last Thuesday ... or Monday
or Wednesday etc.
+++++
THERE ARE A lot of holidays
which are designated for a certain
Monday in the year. There is Labor
Day, Veterans Day, Washington's
Birthday, Columbus Day and several
others. We've all had enough exper-
ience with a Monday holiday to know
we don't need another one on that
fateful day of the week.
Monday is a bad day to have
anything; even the beginning of a new
work week.
It wouldn't do to have Thanksgiv-
ing on Monday, because people
couldn't get in the thankful mood.


Day On Wh
You see, on these Monday holi-
days, they aren't really holidays at
all. Monday is the day to get back
home and make preparations to go to
work the next day. The holidays have
been Saturday and Sunday. It would-
n't be appropriate to have Thanksgiv-
ing on Monday and be on the road
back home from grandmommas
house just when we should be sitting
down to a sumptuous meal.
+ ++ ++
TUESDAY WOULDN'T DO as an
acceptable day for Thanksgiving,
July Fourth, New Years, Christmas
or Pearl Harbor day either.
I know, periodically they fall on a
Tuesday and it makes everyone groan
with the anticipation of a stay-at-
home holiday because there isn't time
,in one day to go to the beach, to visit a
relative or visit Wakulla Springs in a
leisurely manner, as one should be
able to do with a respectable holiday.


rich to Have A
Wednesday is out for the same
reason Tuesday just wouldn't work.
Friday would be acceptable as a
holiday, except that most of us do very
little on Friday, anyhow, anticipating
the week end off. Even though it would
be passable, Friday wouldn't pass as
your first rate holiday.
Saturday and Sundays are the
worst days for a holiday since they are
already generally accepted as days of
rest. That is, they are days of rest for
everyone but those who are providing
services to help the remainder of us
enjoy that rest and couple of days off.
Monday are out for the obvious
reasons already discussed.
That leaves only Thursday and I
am convinced old Franklin D. gave
the matter considerable serious
thought before making his proclama-
tion those many years ago.
With a holiday on Thursday, one

I Holiday
can count on a holiday long enough to
go for a visit, a short vacation, a few
days of just laying around in
relaxation or a host of other things.
Thursday is the best possible day
to have any holiday. Bosses tend to let
the working stiffs off that extra day on
Friday and makes everyone happy.
It's almost a pleasure to get back to
work on a blue Monday after a few
days off. h
I think we should go old FDR a
step further and pass a national
decree, accepting it as an amendment
to the Constitution, that henceforth all
declared national holidays be relegat-
ed to a Thursday ra ter thanfalling
randomly through the calendar, or on
an inconvenient Monday.
I wonder who it was who first
came up with the first Monday
holiday? He sure didn't have the spirit
of Franklin Roosevelt firmly in his
mind when he did it.

where they put the light switch on
those old Western Flyers? It was right
on top of that torpedo looking thing
that held the light and batteries that
was screwed on to the front fender.
You had to steer with one hand and
kinda' lean over the front of the han-
dle bars and stretch out your free arm
about as far as you could to reach the
switch. That was probably the first
time I realized I wasn't blessed with
long arms. I almost made it. As I
reached with the right arm the bike
went left. I tried to sit back down but I
missed the seat. Then my right foot
came off the pedal and so I couldn't
put the brakes on. By this time I was
sailing through Mr. Pete Joyner's
yard. I missed the two maple trees but
I didn't miss the tractor tire that held
Mrs. Joyner's flower bed. I went air-
borne.
I landed, flaps down, on their
driveway. I had gotten to one knee
and was picking the gravel out of my
arm when Dave drove up. He glanced
over at my bike, looked down at my
bleeding hands and said, "I'd give
that dive a 9.6."
We got the front fender straight-
ened enough so the tire would roll. My
torpedo light was a little crooked but
it still worked. Those Western Flyers
were tough. And did I ride that bike. It
took me to school. It took me to the
picture show. In the summer it took
me to the baseball field over by the
pajama factory. Sometimes I was
Roy Rogers and it was my horse.
Other times I was Audie Murphy and
my bike doubled as an Army tank.
When I decided to run away from
home that Western Flyer took me.
Of course I was only gone for about
two hours. My bologna sandwich and
cookies ran out. During the baseball
season we'd take clothes pins and clip
baseball cards to the spokes. It would
slow you down some, but, man, what a
hum.
As long as I owned that bike, when
it got dark I stopped, got off and turn-
ed my light on. Listen, you fly across
Mr. Pete Joyner's yard and see if that
wouldn't learn you to "be careful."
Just think what special life long
memories came from that very
special Christihas gift. I look back
now and wonder if I ever thanked my
Mom and Dad for it. You know they
could have given me a bathrobe.
Respectfully,
Kes

Good Idea to Call
Before You Visit
It is a good idea for people in the
North Florida area to call. Social
Security before taking the time to visit
the office. The reason is that most
Social Security business can be taken
care of by telephone.
Unless the person's business is
urgent, it is best to call after the.
middle of the month and later in the
week. Inquiries can be handled more
quickly then.

Sunny Side Up
by Emily Roche










The American tourist had
been complaining a great deal
about the food. "Here," he
said to the waitress holding
out a piece of meat for in-
spection, "do you call that
pig?" "Which end of the fork,
sir?" she asked sweetly.
A friend of mine was upset
this morning because her liv-
ing bra tried to commit
suicide... claimed it was
leading an empty life.
Then there was the fellow who
.was musically inclined. He
went out fit as a fiddle and
came back tight as a drum.
AT
Roche's Furniture
& Appliance Store
we are not musically inclined,
but we can sing you a tune
about our bargains.
