,Gulf County Sheriff Al Harrison
&do Port St. Joe Police Chief Carl
Rithter said this week they were
putting feet to their threat made two
months ago, when they said dealers in
kigs were not in safe' territory in
SMilf County.
In baking up this threat to

eeeces Monday to set up a dragnet of'
S^ack cocaine dealers which netted

198 7-A Traumatic Year


The year 1987 was probablyy the most-violent year in The final
Gulf County's history. Not only was it violent in the sense Eva Hall drove
that several people suffered fatally from situations which Gulf County
happened, but it was violent in the sense some of those
who had good things happen to them were affected in an Things st

important story of the year. If it was important enough to .. .. g
cause the entire nation and much of the English speaking
world to stop and see this terrible thing which just came
down in Port St. Joe, Florida, it has to be our most
important story.
The shooting of Judge W. L. Bailey, attorney Tom
Ingles and Mrs. Peggy White Paul in the Gulf County
Courthouse during a divorce proceeding, electrified the
news media of the nation within a matter of just minutes.
The three were shot in the judge's chambers of the
Courthouse, and Clyde Melvin, charged with the triple
killing, was apprehended by Sheriff Al Harrison less than
five minutes later as he attempted to escape by holding
his divorced wife hostage on the roof of the Courthouse.
Gulf County, nor the families involved in the tragic
five minutes, have gotten over the event yet.
FIVE DIE VIOLENTLY
The second most important story is akin to the first
only in that five people died violently during the
year-this time in two burning buildings.
It was shocking news in May, when a fire leveled the
home of County Commissioner A B Traylor and took the
lives of his wife and a son.
Then in October, a dillapidated rooming house on
Avenue C in Port St. Joe burned in the early morning
hours, snuffing out the lives of three people The second
fire was determined by the State Fire Marshal to be
caused by arson, but few clues could be retrieved which Ors And

Chief Richter said, "As long as

"If sellers can't use these arrests

Chief Richter and Sheriff Harri-

Tuesday of last week, workmen
removed the final sheet of steel piling
from the narrow south end of the Dead
Lakes Dam, and for the first time
since the late 1950's the Chipola River
channel was flowing freely once
again.

director 'of the Northwest Florida
Wafer management District said the
first high water which comes along
will more than likely move the rock
for the county. "Of course, it might,
not get deposited where the county
wants it, placed, but it'll get moved!
You can depend on that".
The Water Management District
was charged by the Flobrida Legisla-
ture with'having the dam removed.
Since the dam's removal, water
levels in the Dead Lakes have
receeded, spawning a damage suit
from some 35 property owners along
its shores. "They can expect that low
water periodically", McCartney said.
"But, ,they'll have their shoreline back
where they want it at least 60 percent
of the time, according to past
records", he said.
Now, one can go to the south end
of the Dead Lakes, stand on the bridge
which spans the neck, of .water and
look at the Dead Lakes, seeing what
people have seen for centuries. While


water levels are low right now, the
vista of cypress stumps which .gave
the lakes their name, stretch out
across the water. In addition, the line
of pilings which carried the old St.
Joseph and Iola Railroad across the
lakes in the mid-1830's are clearly
visible just north of the bridge.
McCartney said the scenery won't


last long, however, as the winter and
spring rains should fill the lake basin
again just as soon as they get started.
In the meantime, biologists claim
the fishing should show steady
irfiprovement not only in the lakes, but
in the Chipola and Apalachicola rivers
as well. "The lakes have been a fish
hatchery for years", McCartney said.

Another Seasonal Tragedy



No Delay

Here we go lunging into a new year and ending the old one
with a burst of tragedies and more than one incidence of man's
Inhvumanlty to man.
It seems like, as the old year is winding down, both Iran and
Iraq are trying to sink every tanker which sets keel on the Per-
sian Gulf and seems indignant that the owners of these expensive
eces of machinery are concerned about deep-dixing their huge
estments and killing their sailors.
The ferry boat tragedy in the Phillipines, the airline
disasters (which seem to come in bunches when they start) and
the killer storms which streaked across the nation just prior to
Christmas. All of these disasters served to try the emotions of
many thousands of people throughout the world who were mak-
ing plans to observe the birth of the Savior.
Here in Florida, we're getting ready to start the new year off
In a manner which does little to add to the desired attitude of the
season. We hear so much about keeping Christ in Christmas; the
season is becoming too commercial and we need to get back to
the real meaning of Christmas. How do we do it? Well, here in
Florida, we're going to cap off the Christmas season by initiating
our first official lottery.
Of course, we have had lottery here in Florida for many
years, but it was the kind one gets arrested for. Now, the state is
going into the same business and it has the blessings of a lot of
people who should know better than to approve of such a method
of raising money to finance public services.
SNo, we're not going to bow down gracefully and accept it. We
thought lottery was wrong at the time it was being promoted and
we haven't changed our mind one little bit.
It was ironic to notice that we can have delays in the building
of hospitals, highways and schools; construction of industrial
plants to provide jobs for people and manufacture goods; arrival
on time of most any mode of transportation you can name can be
delayed time and time again.
We haven't failed to notice, though, that the machinery is
already in place and geared up to sell that first lottery ticket
right on schedule.
In keeping with the current trend, the beginning of lottery is
the tragedy for the season and for our state.


Keep It Up!

Did you notice.the large number oi Christmas programs
which were presented in our small city this year? It may be just
our imagination, but it seemed to us there were more than usual.
One of our favorites-and a favorite with many others, we're
sure-is the annual live nativity scene the Methodists erect to the
rear of their church.
There were probably others involved in the building of the
manger and livestock pen to make up the display, but we saw Bill
Brown, Leonard Belin and Bob Freeman at work on the display
one day as we were driving by.
Whoevir heeled these three deserve to be acknowledged,
alio, but for lack-of time to find out just who all was involved in
the building and securing the animals; those who stood o6ti ithie
weather for several hours on the nights of display-the entire
community, we feel sure, joins us is saying we appreciate your
efforts and the result.
Someone said this would probably be the last year the
Methodist Church puts on this display and since we're not
Methodist, it's easy for us to say, "Don't discontinue the live
nativity!" We say it's easy for us to make this appeal since we're
not involved in its preparation each and every year.
We hope the Methodists continue this display on into the
future. It does a service for our community we don't think they
can even begin to appreciate. The nativity is one of the better
things we see happening at Christmas time anywhere around
and we hope it continues.
There are assaults from every avenue against putting up
public nativity scenes, Christmas scenes with a religious flavor
and any reference to the true reason for the season. So long as
the Methodists keep this annual reminder alive that the Christ
Child was born on Christmas day, we'll be reminded here in our
town. Too, so long as it's on their property, there is no group
Which can make them take it down.
You have found a unique ministry, Methodists, and we hope
you continue it in the future.

Hunker Down with Kes

THURSDAY, DECEMBER 31,1987


by Kesley Colbert


I Don't Buy Jane Fonda Videos Either


It ain't none of my business, mind
yuu. And it shouldn't bother me like it
does. But I can't help it. It galls me to
no end that Time Magazine would
name Mikhail Gorbachev as its Man
of the Year. Can you believe that? The
man's a commie. In fact, he is the
head commie. He wears red socks and
has got that big C printed on his chest
just like the rest of them. What was
Time thinking about?
Maybe they got caught up in'that
peace talk stuff. Listen closely now,
I'm a'wanting peace just like,,'you
are-I pray for it daily. The desire of
my heart, like yours, is for peace on
earth and good will toward all. In my


Pollyanna mind I want everything to
work just right and I wish people of all
nations would get along all the time
like cornbread and collard greens. I
don't think Mikhail Gorbachev shares
our views.
I think the "party" to which he
belongs has only one goal and that's
not to make peace with the U.S. Karl
Marx wrote that the workers of the
world should unite and take over.
Lenin borrowed some ideas from
Marx and led a revolution in Russia in
1917. After Lenin killed off those that
could oppose him, he announced that
soon he and his party would rule the
world. Masters of subversive tactics,


the communist party began to in-
filtrate all areas of life in almost
every country with one aim in sight -
complete rule of that country. Then
Stalin came along peach of a guy.
He lied like a dog to Roosevelt at
Yalta and Truman at Potsdam. They
didn't live up to any agreements they
made concerning territorial and
human rights at the close of World
War II. General Patton understood
but nobody listened.
Then Nikita Khrushchev comes to
America, beats his shoe on the table
at the United Nations like a three year
old, eats some corn in Iowa like he's
one of us and then announces that our


grandchildren would live under com-
munist rule. I forget the exact year
but it was around 1959. The grand-
children of 1959 are upon us.
You see Lenin started it and the
commies have worked hard at taking
over the world since then. They don't
know nothing else. And you can bet
the farm they're still working at it to-
day.


So peace talks? don't get your
hopes up. Gorbachev said that he was
putting all his cards on the table. I
.thought of Yalta and Potsdam. The
Russians agreed to limit anti ballistic
warheads to 4,900. How many does it
take? They are going to cease pro-
ducing chemical warfare. Exchange
all data... yeah, right.
Here's what I want to know. Are
they getting out of Central America,
Cuba and Afghanistan? Will they
leave the Arab nations alone? Are
they going to keep France? Will they
quit producing movies and television
shows. in Hollywood? How much co-
caine, heroin, etc. do they import into
the U.S. each year? How many
newspapers and national magazines
do they control in this country?
Man of the Year in a pig's eye. I
tell you that galls me. Of course I
don't read Time, haven't read it in
years. Their views and mine have
never really coincided and now I'm
understanding why. Man of he Year -
what has he done except fly over here
and talk.
Do you really think he put all his
cards on the table. Listen, with a com-
mie it is not the kings, queens and
eights laying on the table that you
have to worry about it's the editors
up his sleeve.
Respectfully,
Kesley

the state of Florida, vice-president,
Bob McSpadden told the Kiwanis Club
Tuesday.
"There are 66 colleges in the state
and we're number seven academic-

been among the leaders for the past
several years, and now other colleges
are beginning to improve their
positions in academics", he pointed
out. '
.Speaking .extemnoraneously, the
college official said Gulf Coast
officials are just beginning to plan for
the early 1990'sT-and said there is a
good possibility a college center for
Port St: Joe'willnot be too far into the
future. "It's already possible toearn a
two year college degree and never
leave Port St. Joe", McSpadden said.
"We plan to improve on even that
situation in the future".

Back in those days on the tail end
of the "Big Depression", I had. a
burning desire for an electric train
and a steam engine. A -friend who
lived out in the country, whose father
had a good job with the oil company,
had a steam engine which ran on an
alcohol burner. I thought that was the
epitome of toys. It' was a gem and
every time I had ah opportunity, I
would hike it out to his house and we
would play with that steam engine.

train. It's an exact replica of the old
locomotive model which was on
display inside the Centennial Building
for many years. The old model was
supposed to have been a replica of the
engines which pulled trains into old St.
Joseph.
According to the information
which came with my train, it is a
replica of trains made in the middle

uths Away
1830's by a firm in: Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania. According to the in-
formation, it was the :only steam
locomotive made in the United States
and helped the balance of payments
back then by being in gieat demand in
foreign countries.
I'm a little dubious about the
authenticity of all my train, however,
since it contains some electric signal
lights, a few trestles, a tunnel and
some sophisticated switching para-
phernalia. Somehow I don't think the
trains of the 1830's had electric signal
lights, modern steel trestles, track
switches of the style included in my
train. Also, the engine ran off of steam
generated from burning pine lighterd
knots and not from an electric
transformer.
My train may lose a little of its
authenticity in the translation, but
we're going to have a good time
together during the coming year.

PHANTRY
by Wendell Campbell



A Tribute to Jack
WHEN I WAS A YOUNG boy growing up in the country just outside
Pensacola, a dog was a necessary part of living. I can't recall just what
purpose he served, save eating some leftovers from the table and barking
a warning signal when a stranger approached, but he was always there.
Today things have changed as far as domestic animals are
concerned. "You might as well have a baby as a dog or cat," my oldest
living brother said some thirty years ago. And I agree with him; animals
are a lot of trouble.
The many people who have domestic pets know what I mean. You
must buy them food, feed and water them, take them to the Vet for shots
and check-ups, provide them with bathroom facilities or let them in and
out and countless other things that they can't do for themselves.
SEVERAL MONTHS AGO my oldest son asked me, "Dad, do you
mind if I get a dog?" My reply was that if he wanted a dog he could get
one but it was going to be his responsibility, that I was out of the "pet"
business.
Several days later he brought home a tan ball of fur and placed it in
our unused dog pen. He then placed a bowl of puppy chow and a bowl of
water in front of it.
"What is that?" I asked, looking at one of the ugliest dogs I had ever
seen.
"That," my son replied proudly, "is Jack. He's a Golden Retriever."
"He doesn't look like he could retrieve a hot biscuit," I replied,
sarcastically. "I hope you know what you've got on your hands."
OVER THE NEXT FEW months he fed and worked with Jack and
finally he did begin to look like something close to a dog. His feet were big
and at first he was very awkward, but he was friendly and playful.
The first thing he taught him to do was retrieve a ball. He then
graduated to a stick and then to a pine cone. The training then graduated
Stothe woods where he was taught to "retrieve" with a shotgun fired over
his head.
It wasn't' long before I began to notice that Jack was different. He
would hot jump on you like most dogs do when they are happy to see you.
Instead, he would fetch a pine cone and drop: it at your feet and "sit,"
whiting for you to throw it so he could retrieve it for you. If you would
throw it for an hour, he would retrieve it for an hour. He was a Golden
Retriever, alright!
Another thing I noticed was that he didn't bark much. If another dog
happened by, he would bark at him and fight if circumstances demanded,
but he wasn't a "how)er,"
Jack was a pleasant, smart dog and did well What he was bred to do;
Whe as a top-notch bird dog and was trained as well as any dog I have
ever seen.
ONE DAY I SAW my son lay a piece of meat at his feet and tell him to
"sit" and then commanded, "no!" He then walked off. Jack smelled the
meat a couple of times but didn't touch it until my son finally said, "OK."
The same day he placed a piece of meat on his nose and commanded
him to sit and stay. After a few minutes he said "OK" and Jack moved his
head and caught the meat in his mouth before it hit the ground.
Needless to say, he became a part of our family and was well loved
and cared for.
THE WEDNESDAY MORNING before Christmas my wife found
Jack dead in the grass between our house and Tenth Street. He had been
hit by a passing car or truck.
It was hard, breaking the news to my son. He took it like I knew he
would, qot saying anything, He refused when I offered to budJack fo6r
him. .
IL" aluater, whptbhings had settled a little,,I told iimhow much we all.. '
cared for Jack and what a loss he would be to our entire family. Tears
welled up in his eyes-and we embraced.
I don't know if he cried or not. If he didn't, he had every right to.. .I
know I did.

Bay County Pair
Face Theft Charges
Gulf County Sheriff's Department
deputies arrested two Bay County
residents Tuesday afternoon, charg-
ing them with five counts of grand
theft in Gulf County.
David Roger Turner, 20, of
Panama City Beach was arrested on
five counts of grand theft along with
Mary Howe, 18, of Calloway for
possession of stolen property.
According to Sheriff Al Harrison,
Turner gave a full confession to the
December 27 robbery of three homes
in the Wewahitchka area. Nine guns
were taken from the residences
during the thefts.
Following information received
on the case, Deputy Tom Godwin,
assisted by the Calloway Police
Department, arrested Turner at his
home in Bay County. All nine guns
taken during the December 27 burg-
laries were recovered.
Turner also reportedly confessed
to two other robberies in the Wewa-
hitchka area almost two years ago, in
which three guns were taken.


Stumps Emerge

Once again one can see the many cypress stumps which-have been the
identifying feature of the Dead Lakes for centuries. The stumps began to rise
from the Water as the Dead Lakes dam was removed and the water level
receded. The view shown above was taken from the bridge which spans the
southern end of the lakes, looking north. The view to the left shows the line of
railroad pilings which crossed the lakes at this point, adjacent to the present
highway bridge. The pilings once held the St. Joseph and lola Railroad track
which once had dreams of short-stopping the lucrative cotton shipping trade
coming down the Apalachicola River from south Georgia and Alabama, for
shipment to all parts of the world. The old railroad, built in the mid-1830's soon
fell on hard times during a world-wide depression and went bankrupt.

must be taken to install some $450,000 worth of changes in,
the manner of burying solid waste or begin hauling it to
the Bay County incinerator.
TOWN DISAPPEARS
During the past year, Gulf County lost one of its
incorporated cities. Ward Ridge, which joins Port St. Joe
on the south, decided to give up its independent status and
ask for annexation into the City of Port St. Joe.
Almost without incident, Ward Ridge voters agreed
'hat was the best thing to do and the voters of Port St. Joe
said. "We're glad to.have you!"
So, now, it's Port St. Joe from the Gulf County Canal
to Highway 98.
TAXES ARE ALWAYS A STORY
Increasing taxes seem to come in for their share of
undivided attention almost every yeqr. They didn't
change this past year.
In 1987, taxes became an even more visible part of
everybody's budget when it seemed as if requirements of
things local government had to do and making up for past
years of frugality all seemed to hit the tax payer at once.
-Taxes 'stirred up some.gefinite emotions in Gulf
County in 1987, with very tittifexpression of approval for
the' hikeg. 0/


In the Port St. Joe and Gulf County vicinity, every
taxing agency reported an increase'in varying sizes. Only
Mexico Beach, in Bay County, recorded a reduction in
taxes in 1987.
IT JUST HAPPENED .
The ninth story in importance gained its notoriety
moce because of its unusual nature than the dramatic
effect it had on anyone else.
Our pick for the eighth most important story of the
year was Donald Maddox swimming across St. Joseph
Bay on Labor Day to raise funds for Muscular Dystrophy.
It was something nobody had ever done before and
something Donnie hadn't planned on three weeks before
he did it.
Donnie came through his four-hour swim with flying
colors, even though he says he has no immediate plans of
doing it again.
OF A PERSONAL NATURE
The tenth story was one of utmost importance to us,
and since we're writing the story, it has to be included.
The Star marked its 50th birthday in September of
1987. In all of those 50 years, the paper had never missed
an issue,:even during the years of World War II when
many newspapers were forced into printing on kraft
wrapping paper during a shortage of newsprint.
During those 50 years, The Star was owned by its
founder, W. S. Smith, from September. 1937 to November
10. 1952. The present publisher has owned the newspaper
ever since.


New Fire Truck for City

Fire Chief Brent Etheredge, Cit Clerk Alden Farris and Police Chief Carl
Richter meet to turn the keys to the City's newest fire pumper over to Chief
Etheredge Monday morning. The truck was delivered to Port St. Joe last week by
the Emergency One division of Dowling Fire Equipment, Inc., of Silver Springs,
Florida. The new pumper was purchased by the City Commission to maintain
fire insurance rated equipment in order to lower fire insurance rates. The new
truck looks to the future needs of the city since it is a 1,250 gallon per minute
pumper, capable of fighting fires in multi-story buildings.
The new piece of equipment is powered by a 3208-T Caterpillar diesel engine,
is equipped with an automatic transmission, carries three passengers in the cab
and has a jump seat behind the cab in which up to four men can ride. The pumper
is equipped with a deluge cannon, which shoots a three-inch stream of water
directly from the truck, which is the latest weapon is fighting fires.
The new pumper cost the city $110,000.

Planning- can Mean Savings o


By: Wayne T. DeWitt, C.P.A.
Several changes made by the Tax
Reform Act of 1986 in the deduction
for interest expense became effective
for the 1987 tax year. Below are the
changes listed by the types of interest
expense.
-Business interest expense is
interest paid on indebtedness incurred
in the course of operating a business.
As in the past, this type interest is
fully deductible.
-Personal interest expense be-
comes nondeductible over a five year
phase-out period beginning in 1987.
Personal interest is interest paid on
personal indebtedness such as car
loans, vacation loans, and credit card
charges. You may deduct only 65

percent of the personal interest you
pay in 1987. For 1988, you may deduct
only 40 percent; in 1989, 20 percent;
for 1990, 10 percent; and, beginning in
1991, payments made for personal
interest will not be deductible.
-Home mortgage interest will
continue to be deductible for a
taxpayer's personal residence and a
second residence but only for loan
amounts up to the cost of the home
plus improvements (or the outstand-
ing balance on August 16, 1986). Loans
in excess of these limits must be used
for educational or medical expenses
or the interest on these loan amounts
will be considered personal interest
expense subject to the phase out rules
discussed under the personal interest


Your 1988 Tax Bill


rules above. This means that begin-
ning in 1987, all home mortgage
interest may not be deductible. If you
took out loans secured by your home
after August 16, 1986, and the total of
all loans on the home are more than
the cost plus improvements, then you
must fill out Form 8598 to determine
what portion of your home mortgage
expense is deductible.
Remembers last week I said that
simplification was not one of the
accomplishments of the new tax
changes. Well, this is surely a good
example. Under prior law a taxpayer
merely listed their total mortgage
interest on one line of a tax form.
Now, many taxpayers must fill out a
tax form that has four pages of
instructions just to determine how


much is deductible. I believe though,
that an abbreviated version of this
form is forthcoming.
-Investment interest under prior
law was deductible to the extent of
investment income plus $10.000. The
new law phases-out the $10.000 buffer
over a five year period until in 1991
investment interest will be deductible
only to the extent of investment
income.
For taxpayers with shares in
limited partnerships. S corporations,
and interests in other business
activities considered passive activity
holdings, then the rulse are even more
complex. For those affected by these
changes, a little planning, particular-
ly over the phase-out period, could
mean tax savings.

House Plants Have A Rough Life During Winter

Cold Weather and Lack of Light Give Plants A Hard Time


by Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Agent
House plants often are confronted
with adverse growing conditions
during the winter months. The
-following are key factors in keeping
house plants healthy, particularly
during winter.
All house plants must have light.
The best light is a southeastern
exposure of filtered, never direct
sunlight. Attempt to locate the plant in
a permanent location, as constant
moving exposes plants to changing
light conditions. Too much light or
direct light often causes burning of
plant foliage.
House plants are often over-wa-
tered while a few may be under
watered. Try to water as the plant
needs it. The bestkey to watering is to
allow the top of the soil in the pot to
become fairly dry prior to watering,
then water well, soaking the soil. Most
house plants, depending on size of the
plant, location, type of soil and size of
the pot will have to be watered at least


ROY LEE CARTER
once per week. A lack of water will
cause yellowing and wilting of plants.
However, these same symptoms are


characteristic of too much water. If
leaves are wilted due to lack of water,
they will become turgid after a good
watering. If the leaves do not become
turgid after a watering, then probably
too much water has been given over a
period of time causing damage to the
root system.
Winter heat in homes is often very
hard on house plants. The ideal
temperature for most plants in the
home is from 65 to 75 degrees during
the day, and 55 degree night temper-
ature. Avoid placing plants near heat
sources.
Humidity or moisture in the air is
necessary and beneficial to most
tropical plants. A 40 to 60 percent,
relative humidity is ideal, yet this,
cannot be provided in homes during
.winter, as heating systems dry out the
air. To increase the indoor humidity
from time to time, syringe the plants
foliage with a fine spray of water.
Another method of increasing the
humidity is placing the pot in gravel,
which is covered with water. Place
the pots on the pebbles, being certain


that the bottoms are not sitting in the
water.
House plants must have a loose,
well-drained soil. Packed soils should
be loosened from time to time, being
sure not to drain the root system. Plan
to repot plants in the spring when
growing conditions are best.
Most house plants require little
fertilization during winter since rapid
growth is not made at this time.
Feeding once every two months will
be adequate for most plants.
'Avoid drafts and provide fresh
air. Plants do not like locations which
expose them to cold or hot air. They
also suffer from gas fumes and
products of incomplete combustion,
which makes fresh air essential
during winter.
Clean the plant's foliage by
washing with warm water.,You may
add a drop or two of detergent to the
water used for cleaning the leaves.
Rinse washed leaves with clear water
to remove soap film. Keep plants
attractive by removing dead leaves
and faded blooms.

Depuration Removes Bacteria from Oysters


Those who eat raw oysters
assume the oysters they eat are safe.
,They depend on it.
To support this assumption, Dr.
Gary Rodrick, a food scientist with
the Institutie of Food and Agricultural
Sciences (IFAS), is working on a
system to remove dangerous bacteria
from oysters.
"Most of the time, oysters are
safe to eat, and the incidence of illness


from bad oysters is low," said
Rodrick.
"Illnesses are rare and usually
temporary, but in some isolated
cases, the reaction can be severe.
Those who do become severely ill
from bad oysters tend to be on
medication that suppresses the body's
immune system or neutralizes sto-
mach acids, or who have health
conditions such as liver disease,


cirrhosis or partial stomach removal.
These conditions allow the bacteria in
the oysters to colonize in the body
much easier than in people without
these health problems," he said.
Rodrich is developing a new
handling system for oysters that uses
a natural process called depuration.
Shellfish pump water and purge
material out of their systems, by
depuration, said Rodrick. Taking this

one step further, he is working on an
assisted depuration system to kill
various bacteria in the water, allow-
ing the oysters to pump clean water.
An ultraviolet light pump and
ozone are being tested for depuration
effectiveness in killing bacteria in sea
water. The oysters filter the treated
water in a tank for two days before
Rodrick examines them for bacteria
levels, taste and quality.
Rodrick is looking specifically at
two, bacteria found naturally in the
Gulf of Mexico.
"While there are several species
of the Vibrio bacteria that live in the
water, two specific species, Vibrio
cholerae and V. vulnificus, are
potential pathogens they are pri-
mary culprits which can cause severe
illness,'" said Rodrick.
Tests are available for checking
Vibrio levels in seawater, he said, but
there are no state regulations requir-
ing levels be tested before harvesting
takes place.
Because of this, Rodrick hopes his
research will be adopted by the oyster
industry, which pulls about six million
pounds of oysters from the Gulf each
year, worth about $7.5 million dollars.
Assisted depuration is being used in
Florida at a plant along the Indian
River, Rodrick said, but only with
clams. It is also a common practice in
Europe.

The Florida Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission is consider-
ing a proposal to stagger the
beginning of the deer and turkey
hunting season for 1988-89.
The proposal would divide the
state into three geographic zones with
different season dates for each zone.
The dates would reflect the variation
in times at which deer are most active
in association with reproductive acti-
vity.
According to Frank Montalbano,
director of the Division of Wildlife
with the Commission, the change
would benefit deer, especially in the
northwest part of the state.
"Under the current setup, hunting
season starts several weeks before the
rutting season in the Northwest
Region," Montalbano said. "That
means many bucks are taken before
they've had a chance to impregnate
the does. Additionally, fawn deer are
born in August and September in the
northwest portion of the state and are
only a few months old when hunting
begins."
Montalbano said the current
system also makes it hard to
differentiate between the sexes of
deer in south Florida.
"Bucks in the south portion of the
state begin dropping their antlers in
November," he said. "By December
it's hard to tell a buck from a doe."

e Commission's Northwest Region,
stretching from Escambia County
east to Jefferson County. The Central
Zone would be bounded on the west by
Madison and Taylor counties and on
the south by S.R. 72 to Arcadia and
S.R. 70 to Ft. Pierce. The remaining
part of south Florida would make up
the South Zone.
Each zone would have a 72-day
general gun season. This would add 14
days to the season in all parts of the
state except the Northwest Region,
which historically has had a 72-day
season.
In the South Zone, deer and turkey
season would be Oct. 29 Jan. 8; in the
Central Zone, Nov. 12 Jan 22; and in
the North Zone, Dec. 10 Feb. 19.
Fall turkey season would continue
to open concurrent with deer season in
each zone, but would close after 58
days of hunting. Small game and
spring turkey seasons would start and
end on the same dates in all three
zones. Also, the special archery-muz-
zleloading gun season, which is held at
the end of the general gun season in
the Northwest Region, would be
eliminated.
Montalbano said the Commission
is seeking comments from the public
on the proposal.
"Interested persons can write to
the Commission's regional offices
with their comments, or voice their
opinions when the Commission meets
in Tllnahassee Jan .14 and 15 "
