Charles Bostick of Wewahitchka, president.
Rev. William Collier will be the speaker at the Friday celebration.
The Gulf County observance of the Martin Luther King birthday
celebration will be part of a nation-wide observance.


County 'Commission Chairman
Doug Birmingham asked the question
of his fellow Commissioners Tuesday
morning, "What are we going to do
about our roads?"
The plight which prompted Bir-
mingham's question was a continuing
deterioration of county roads and no
new sources of 'revenue to repair or
re-surface them.
"We're in danger of losing .two of
our more travelled roads if we don't
get a new surface on them right
soon", Birmingham said. He pointed
out there were several other shorter
roads in the county in the same
predicament.
"The Dalkeith Road and C-30 (old
98) are about to go if we don't do
something in a hurry", Birmingham
said while he was pointing out: there
were no funds present or vAble im'he
fitire to reuw r
"We haVe roads all/ over our
county, including the Peninsula Road,
which are falling int6 dis-repair
because of a lack of road money to
make nae'ssary repair. If any of you
have any ideas of where we can get
the money to bring them back up to
standards, I would like to hear it. I
don't know where it will come from".
The Commission took a look at an


existing road bond issue recently to
see if re-financing would allow enough
money to make some of the needed
repairs, but found the money now


available wouldn't be enough'to'make
a dent in the county's needs at the
time.
The Board even toyed with
levying an additional cent or two on
the gasoline tax recently, but aban-
doned that method of raising road
money.
"We have new road needs coming
up every day and we need to address
the matter of how to pay for them. If
any of you have a suggestion, we need
to hear about it soon", Birmingham
urged.
GOING IN THE HOLE
Some other "good news" from
Mosquito Control Director, Sam
Graves, advised the Board the $80,000


they budgeted to pay for incinerating
south Gulf county's solid waste in the
Bay county incinerator would not last
the year out at the present rate.
"We paid Bay county $11,252 to
burn our waste in the month of
December", Graves said. "At that
rate, we will be out of money about the
middle of the summer."
Administrative Assistant, Larry
Wells, attorney William J. Rish and
Graves worked out an agreement with
Bay county for accepting the solid
waste but had to guarantee at least 80
tons a week to get the $15.00
negotiated rate. "We had no records

Blown Tire Blamed for Mobile Home Damage


No personal injuries were reported when this mobile
home tilted over on its side on Highway 98 Monday
afternoon. The home, itself, received considerable damage
inside from the accident.
The mishap occurred about a mile west of Highland
View on the Dixie Belle curve. Bill Murray, driver of the
tow vehicle, said he thought a tire blew out, causing the


home to begin swaying and get overbalanced, which
resulted in it tilting and leaving the road.
The home was being moved into the beaches area when
the accident happened.
The home is shown in the photo above where it came to
rest on the shoulder of Highway 98.


Dissension Descends On Mexico Beach


AN Railroad Moves Is
The Apalachicola Northern Railroad moved its
dispatcher depot to a new building located alongside the
make-up track near Niles Road. The new dispatch station
relieves congestion at the shop area of the railroad and at te
Highway 71 traffic crossing-while the train is being started
on its way.
The new building makes it convenient for the
dispatcher because it gives crews a view of the full train


Train Dispatch Point
from the upstairs dispatch office, while train crews receive
their orders and instructions in the first floor office.
The railroad is now sending out 100-plus car trains each
day in its coal hauling operation, which prompted the
construction of the new make-up yard between Highway 71
and Niles Road and the construction of the new dispatch
headquarters.


A unanimous decision to grant a
zoning variance in December has
resulted in an ethics violation charge
being filed against one Mexico Beach
Commissioner by another.
Bill Horn, a newly elected com-
missi6ner for the beach front city, has
filed a complaint with the Florida
Commission on Ethics, charging that
Cathey violated the state statute by
voting for the variance.
Horn's charges on the official
complaint filed, say: "I feel there is
reason to believe that the public's
trust in Councilman "Al" Cathey has
been undermined when he applied for
a variance, by exception, to allow
himself to rent an existing building
owned by himself and-or his mother
for use as a spray paint body shop".
The complaint goes on to charge
that Cathey utilized his position as
City Commissioner of Mexico Beach
to have a zoning variance granted,
allowing the paint and body shop to
operate in the building. Horn's


complaint alludes to the fact that
Cathey filed for the zoning exception.
Tuesday night, Cathey defended
his position to the regular meeting of
the Mexico Beach City Commission
by saying he did not file for the zoning
adjustment. "A variance was re-
quested, however, by the party
renting the building", he pointed out.
The zoning variance was made
after the party renting the building,
Jeff Sellers, filed with the Mexico
Beach zoning and planning board for
the variance, as required by the City
Charter. The committee approved the
request and recommended to the City
Commission in December that it be
approved. The variance was approved
unanimously by the Commission at
the time.
Horn accuses Cathey of seconding
the motion made by Commissioner
Donna Green, to approve the recom-
mendation for a variance.
Cathey said there was some
discussion at the time whether or not
he should make the second. Mayor


Jones advised Cathey at the time that
since he was the building's owner and
not the one making the request, he
thought it would be proper for him to
file his, seconding motion.
Horn has-taken exception to the
Mayor's recommendation by filing
the ethics violation charge against
Cathey.
Cathey, in his Tuesday statement
before the Mexico Beach Board
gave to reasons for making the
charges public.
"First, the accusations of this
complaint are false. Readily access-
ible public records reveal that I never
requested a variance and secondly,
such actions are disruptive to the
progress of our city. I feel all citizens
of Mexico Beach should know they are
taking place. These complaints do not
constructively serve the voters and
tax payers of our city and impede
progress."
Horn has refused to make a public
statement concerning the charges.

One Reason


Our Tax Bills Are High

One of the reasons it takes so much money to run our
business here in Gulf County was demonstrated last week. The
.federal government has told Gulf County it must spend an
unknown sum of money (estimated to be as much as $50,000) to
inspect the buildings in the school system to see if they contain
harmful amounts of asbestos. If the School Board doesn't come
up with a plan for doing this little task-like the federal
government wants it done-by October, the county can be fined
up to $25,000 per day.
We can understand the feds taking a tough stand on the
matter of asbestos inside the school buildings. Asbestos has
been identified as one of the many bad substances which
threaten us and our continued good health. Asbestos has been
placed on the hazardous materials list and has been outlawed
as a building material in public buildings.
The real kicker in the whole deal, though, is that the county
spent a lot of money-about $300,000 worth-nearly six years
ago to have asbestos removed from the school buildings and
replaced with an acceptable material for insulation.
Surely, back six years ago, when the asbestos was removed
(again at federal direction) there was an inspection made to
make sure the county followed directions explicitly in the
removal of the asbestos. If not, there should have been.
The question is, why are we being required to waste up to
$50,000 dollars to inspect buildings which have already been
inspected? We're sure Gulf County could find a much better use
for $50,000 than paying for an inspection we shouldn't need.
The sad part about the whole thing is, it's just such
requirements, multiplied several-fold which cause our public
school operation bill to be so high.



No More 'Nams!

The United States was involved in a no-win situation in.
Vietnam and has spent every waking day since the ignominious
pull-out over there mentally flogging ourselves over and over at
the useless death of thousands of American young men.
Rightfully so. If the United States didn't intend to win the
war, we should have never gone there. After going and
declaring ourselves once again opposed to Communism, we
should have fought to win.
Instead, the bleating cry of the hand-wringing set caused us
to cut and run from that unfortunate country. We've been trying
to live it down ever since, with every two-bit tin-horn dictator in
the world, such as Muhummar Khadafy, Khoumeini, the
Central American banana splits and others, thumbing their
nose at Uncle. Sam because they have reason to suspect there's
--no bite to his bark.
Now, the Tallahassee Democrat advocates that we crawl
even deeper into this unfortunate situation by suggesting we cut
and run again this time in the Persian Gulf.
The Democrat, in an editorial entitled, "U.S. Should Pull
Out of Gulf" has sent up the cry that we are exposed in the Gulf
"exactly like our Marines in Beirut" in 1983.
It's true, when you have two factions out there with guns,
there's likely to be someone hurt. Surely our commanders
thought of that before sending our forces into the Gulf.
Now that we are there, it's necessary that we do what we
said we were there to do in the first place. Now that the other
side is beginning to shoot back is no time to tuck our tail
between our legs and run home.
We understand we are protecting interests in the world
other than ours, but getting into the situation in the first place
seems to us to be saying we have interests in th6se parts of the
world, too.
We've damaged our resolve enough with our reaction to the
Vietnam situation. It's a certainty that if we add to that
reputation, the next Iranian gunboat may be zipping up the
Hudson river by next year and then what would the Democrat
have us do?


Hunker Down with Kes


by Kesley Colbert


A Man for All Seasons


A week or so ago we talked about
Time Magazine's Man of the Year.
Remember? Mostly we kicked around
the fact that they had given it to the
wrong guy. We didn't get too bent out
of shape 'cause no one around here
reads Time anyway. Now you may
see a copy in a dentist or doctor's of-
fice but that's just for atmosphere in
the waiting room. Read the Better
Homes and Garden or Southern Liv-
ing instead. Shucks, we all know the
doc is not a Time man he reads only
one magazine and that's the Golf
Digest.
Since that story came out several
people have stopped by to mull it over
with me. Hey listen, I even got a letter
on it. I certainly appreciate your time
in getting back to me on this one. And
I must say at first I was a little sur-
prised at the interest shown in this.
But I realized that real Americans
everywhere see through the folly of
Time Magazine naming Mikhail Gor-
bachev as its man of the year. Let's
not get started on that again... but I
will add one footnote we could have
been worse on both Time and Gorby.
My oldest son thinks we went far
enough. Josh had trouble sleeping for
a night or two after reading the story.
He was afraid the commies were go-
ing to come and get me. I assured him
that there are millions and millions
who feel just like I do they can't
come and get us all.


Most everyone that has stopped
by has asked the same two questions
(1) Do I think Jane Fonda is a
Communist? and (2) Who would I pick
as Man of the Year? Listen, I ain't
touching that Fonda thing. I once
mentioned she was a Communist on
the radio and the Civil Liberties Union
called and had a near about absolute
fit. No telling what they'd do if I wrote
it down.
Who would I select as Man of the
Year? That's tough. He'd be an
American. How about the guy that
works in the boot factory, or the saw-
mill or puts bumpers on cars as they

Always Good for A Laugh


Dear Mr. Ramsey:
I'm very sorry the joke in your
paper offended one of your readers
but if this person is a "yankee" there
is no need to be offended because not
all Floridians are natives. That poor
soul missed the favorite joke of most
natives and it is seldom that anyone is
offended.
As for your column each week not
being good for a laugh, to learn
something from, or let someone


younger than us older folks learn
about the good ole days gone by, how
in the world would I have learned
where ETAOIN SHRDLU came from.
Yes, Mr. Ramsey wrote an article
telling us all where he arrived with
that little title for his column each

get a good laugh is read his column
each week.
Thanks,

You Would Expect


ISN'T IT STRANGE HOW we all
form opinions of persons and come to
regard some of them quite high in our
esteem. Then, those we seem to
regard as most high or most compe-
tent show up a flaw or two on close
examination. You know, we see a wart
here or a wild whisker growing here
or there where it isn't supposed to be
growing. Like a prized diamond, these
people sometimes come up with a flaw
in an otherwise perfect setting.
In most cases this finding doesn't
cause us to cast this highly regarded
person aside. As a matter of fact, at
times it causes us to have more
esteem for them because we realize
they have some of the faults we have
and still they have managed to rise
above them and go on to higher
accomplishments than we think it is
possible for us to obtain ourselves.


This happened to me the other
evening when I was out taking a walk
in our neighborhood. It was nearly
dark when I happened to be walking
by this particular house and discover
this "wart" on this highly regarded
person. My regard for him hasn't
wavered one bit. Let me put it another
way: I was a little surprised he would
do so mundane a thing in solving a
problem he happened to have. I would
have expected him-and thought
nothing of it if he had-to come up
with a sophisticated solution to the
problem. That would have been more
in keeping with the style I have come
to associate with this particular
person.
I HAVE KNOWN THIS particular
person nearly all his life and I have
known him to be the kind who solves
problems with finesse. He's not your

He has a knack about him!

NOW, COMES THE reason for the
disappointment.
As I said, I was walking the other
night and I came up on Ferrell, right
at dark, picking up pine cones off his
lawn.
I noticed Ferrell wasn't stooping
over to pick up the cones. He just
pointed a pole at the cones and they
jumped in his bucket.
I was in awe, there in the dusk. I
said, "Ferrell, you ought to get a
patent on that thing. That's the easiest
way to pick up pine cones I have ever
seen. Did you come up with that
gadget yourself?"

Ferrell said, "Yeah, that's a real
handy gadget. I just give that old pine
cone a flip and right in the bucket it
goes. I got tired of bending over to
pick up the pesky things."
I stuck my foot deeper in my


mouth by pointing out that maybe we
should come up with a corporation to
manufacture and market the "deluxe,
mighty midget, pine cone picker-
upper". You see how enthused I was?
I already had a name for that whiz of a
labor saver.
Ferrell held up his pine cone tool
and shook his head a little and said,
"Naw .. it's nothing but a broken
broom handle with a piece of clothes
hanger wire twisted around the end.
But it works right well, doesn't it!"
You could have knocked me over
with a feather. I thought it was at least
some mysterious alloy, a secret
design and a South American mahog-
any handle.
Was I disappointed!
Here's the St. Joe Forest Products

from broken broom sticks and clothes
hangers! That's what us amateurs
use to solve every problem which
comes up!

Thoughts On Drinking
THERE'S A LOT to be said about drinking alcoholic beverages.
Unfortunately, there's a lot more negatives about drinking than positives.
Like it or not, alcohol is a part of our life and society and will remain
here long after the words on this paper have dried and turned to dust. The
prohibition days during the 1930's proved that.
I drink alcoholic beverages. Although I don't flaunt the fact that I
drink and am not particularly proud of it, most people who know me are
aware that I do.
Some people think I drink much more than I actually do. If I drank as
much as some people think, I would have a drink in my hand this very
moment. Well, I don't because I can't type and drink at the same time.
.In fact! it takes a special occasion for me to take a drink, like a
handshake, a baby born somewhere in the world, a marriage in the state
of Florida or a snowfall somewhere in Alaska.
Although I do enjoy a libation from time to time, I must admit that I
can't think of many redeeming qualities derived from drinking alcohol.
After much thought, observation and personal experience, I have
compiled a list of the advantages and disadvantages of drinking. They
are:
DISADVANTAGES
-Gives one a false sense of superiority and security. The first time I
took a drinks) of hard liquor, I picked a fight with a man actually he
was a boy, as I was who was about twice my size and he almost beat me
to death. My mother woke me the next morning wanting to know what I
was doing in her son's bed.
-Makes your head hurt the next morning. If you have never had a
real hangover, believe me, you don't want one. Hitting your finger with a
hammer hurts and that's about the way a hangover feels except you hurt
all over and for a much longer period of time.
-Destroys brain cells. It doesn't take a psychiatrist to evaluate the
behavior of some people who have had too much to drink to tell us they
are out of their minds. If anyone doesn't believe alcohol warps the brain,
you don't know some of the same people I know.
-Destroys motor control (as in Staggering Shad). Most people who
drink, especially younger drinkers, think alcohol enhances physical
ability (see above disadvantage). That is why there are so many traffic
fatalities attributed to alcohol consumption. Statistics don't lie!
-Makes a fool out of you, as in the beer that made Milwaukee
famous. This one needs no explanation. If you have never experienced it,
you have probably observed someone doing it. I have done both.
ADVANTAGES
-None!

ALCOHOL IS GOOD for rubdowns, snakebites, and fruitcakes. Then
why, you may ask, do we continue to drink?
Fools, the lot of us!

like no one you've ever seen. Is he not
somebody's Man of the Year?
How about Jim Bob Harris? I
grew up with him. His Dad had that
big farm that Jim Bob hated. He
couldn't wait to graduate and leave.
He was going to the city. No more'
hogs, stumps, barb wire and chicken
mess for Jim Bob, no sir. His dad died
the year we graduated. Jim Bob gave
up college, the city and lots of dreams
to take care of his mother and the
hogs. Twenty three years later he's
still working that farm and taking
care of his mother. You think you
could convince Mrs. Harris that Gor-
bachev, and not her son, was the Man
of the Year?
If you pinned me down to one per-
son, I believe that Time should have
selected Reverend J. C. Odum as its
Man of the Year. I have lots of reasons
for this choice but mostly it's because
he is a good person. He truly cares.
He's consistently, unselfishly cared
for years. Besides he helped me once
when I had a sick little friend. My lit-
tle sick friend is now a healthy, nine
year old and Brother Odum is still
praying for him. Yes sir, when it
comes to this Man of the Year thing -
we need a little more thought and a lot
less Time.

ROADSIDE SIGNS
The issue of placing advertising
signs on county rights of way stirred
up a strong protest Tuesday, after the
county road department had removed
several signs in the Cape San Blas
area.
David Roche told the board a sign
owned by his firm had been taken
down and is now destroyed. "We were
given permission to place the sign
there by the property owner and
thought it was back off the right of
way".
Roche said if the sign was on the
right of way, it should have been
moved, but objected to the sign being
removed without first contacting him.
"If we had been notified, we would
have moved the sign and we would
still have it. As it is, it's lying at the
rear of the Mosquito Control building,
all torn to pieces. Those things are
expensive."
Roche received assurances from
the Board directions would be handed
out to notify sign owners of their
pending removal in the future.
In the meantime, the county is
getting an ordinance together to set up
rules and regulations for placing signs
beside roads inside the county.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business matters, the
Commission:
-Accepted the bid of Whitco
Electric of Wewahitchka to install a
silent alarm system in the courthouse.
The accepted bid was expanded to
include an alarm in the library

'" --Agreed to a request by Fred
Ward and Jean Smith to clean out a
ditch in the Simmons Bayou area
provided the DER will issue a permit
for the project.
-Heard the results of a survey of
Beach Water system customers. The
survey had a large majority saying
they would not be willing to pay higher
monthly rates in order to receive
more water pressure. 117 voted "no",
37 voted "yes" and 3 returned blank

Toward

One of the things St. Paul told the
Galatian Christians was: "There is
neither Jew nor Greek, there is
neither slave nor free, there is neither
male nor female; for you are one in
Christ Jesus." St. Peter had come to
the same conclusion because in Acts
hle said, "Truly I perceive that God
shows no partiality, but in every
nation anyone who fears him and does
what is right is acceptable to him."
The thing that all the Apostles
tried to get across was that Christ
recognizes no class distinctions. Such
prejudice divides people and estab-
lishes a worldly system, elevating the
powerful and defeating the weak.

practices.
Even though this teaching has
been with the church since the
beginning, there have been only a few
short bursts of light when the people of
God have really- tried to put the
doctrine into practice. World history
demonstrates the truth that the
church generally reflects the power
structures of the society it finds itself
in. When the church imitates the
world, it fails lo imitate its Lord. The
Lord is not like the world and his
church should not be either.


Remembering what St. Paul said,
are there racial barriers in your
Christian community? Do you person-
ally discriminate? Are provisions
made for the handicapped? Do you
have reserved parking for those who
need it, or is that just for the pastor,
secretary and choir director? Do you
have large print hymnals for the
visually impaired? Are provisions
made for the deaf? Will your toilets
permit the disabled to use them?
What about gender discrimination?


Rev. Jerry Huft

Are women allowed to take their
rightful place in the leadership of the
church? Or are they kept in their
kitchens, sewing guilds, and nurser-
ies?
When you read this are you angry
or threatened at the thought of
permitting those from a powerless
group to be raised up to a position of
authority? Are you willingly a part of
the hiearchy that "keeps other in their
place?"
Or are you a person who takes the
words of scripture seriously? Are you
willing to stand with Paul and Peter in
opposition of unfair prejudices? If you
are, do something to show it. Purge,
racial, class, and sexual bigotry from
your thinking, vocabulary, and behav-
ior. Do what you can to make your
Christian environment a fertile place
for the growth of faith, hope and love
for all people.

Sharks Lose to Wakulla and Apalachicola


Girls basketball continues to win
for Port St. Joe High School as the
lady Sharks dumped the Florida
High Demonettes Monday evening in
a 63-48 shoot-out.
Holly Russ was nearly perfect in
going 14 for 16 to scorch the nets for a
big 35 points in the game.
Russ led the Sharks and the game
in her scoring effort. Her high game
for the year was a 41 point effort
against Carrabelle in December.
Port St. Joe jumped off to a
commanding 18-5 lead in the first
period and didn't slow down until the
final period, when the Demonettes
crammed 20 points through the nets
while the Shark coasted along on only
11 markers. The game was out of
reach for Florida High by the start of
the final stanza.
Even though the lady Sharks have
piled up an 8-2 record this season, the
win over Florida High Monday was
their first district win of the year.

as the team lost in the oyster city
because of a turned ankle.
In the third period, Curtis Beard
had to leave the game for a few
minutes to have a turned ankle taped
and the Apalachicola. team took
advantage of the disrupted Shark
rhythm to gather up a 10-point
advantage for the period.
Beard was having an especially
good night against Apalachicola des-


pite having to leave the game for a
period in the third. He ended up with
34 points for the night, to lead his
team's scoring. Eric Langston was
the only other Shark scoring in double

It has been a tough week for the
Sharks' basketball team, losing two
games to tough regional opponents.
Last Friday, the Wakulla War
Eagles came to town and packed off
an 83-70 win behind the net-popping
three-point shots of John Lawhon.
Lawhon hit four of the long bombs for
his team, to keep the Shark defense
loose.
Eric Langston popped 15 points
into the nets to pace the Shark scoring
while the big guns were silenced by
the stout Wakulla defense.
The War Eagles had only a two
point lead at the end of the first half,
but picked up a six point scoring
margin in the third and five points in
the final period to seal up their win.
Curtis Beard popped 20 points
Eric Langston scored 15 points and
Willie Smith had 10 as the only other

Snacking between meals can be
healthy if you're careful not to
overeatand you choose your snacks
carefully.
"There's a gobd case for snack-
ing," advised Joyce Haley, chairper-
son of the Bay Unit of the American
Heart Association, "It can be espe-
cially important for growing young-
sters, active teens, pregnant women
and nursing mothers."
In order for a snack to provide
value to the diet, it should be loaded
with nutrients and low in fat,
cholesterol, sodium and calories.
If yoii have- the snacking urge,
select snacks made of familiar,
wholesome foods, with mineral pro-
cessing. Look for labels that describe
the product's protein, fat, carbohy-
drate, cholesterol, sodium and calorie
count. It the protein and carbohydrate
numbers are higher than the fat
count, it's a better bet than a high-fat
snack. Of course, fruit or vegetables
from the produce section of your
grocery don't contain ingredient
labels. Most tree or'vine ripened
fruits and vegetables are fine for
snacking.
Avoid the popular fried snacks
such as most chips. They're high in
fat, calories and usually sodium.
You'll save calories (and your
teeth) by munching on apples, carrots
and air-popped corn instead of
candies, pastries and cookies. Try
low-sugar frozen juice bars purchased
at a store or made at home by
pureeing fruit, pouring it into paper
cups, inserting a spoon or tongue
depressor and freezing. Instead of
sugary soft drinks refresh your thirst
by mixing one part fruit juice to four
parts sparkling water.

Florida Schools Will Get Free Seedlings for Arbor Day Planting


More than 8,000 seedling trees are
being sent to schools throughout
Florida for planting during Friday's
Arbor Day observances, according to
Commissioner of Agriculture Doyle
Conner.
"The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Services is
sending 10 bareroot pine seedlings to


each of the 736 middle and elementary
schools whose principals returned
request forms mailed statewide in
November," Conner said. "In addi-
tion, we supply two potted hardwood
seedlings to each of the 350 schools in
10 South Florida counties in cooper-
ation with local nurserymen and
garden clubs."


The 10 counties where schools will
be receiving laurel, live oak, red
cedar or dahoon holly hardwood trees
are Broward, Charlotte, Dade, De-
Soto, Hillsborough, Manatee, Orange,
Palm Beach, Sarasota and Seminole
Counties.
The bareroot pine seedling pro-
gram for Florida schools has been in


School Observing Arbor Day


The students and teachers at
Highland View Elementary School
will celebrate Arbor Day on January
15 by planting trees. The Sea Oats and
Dunes Garden. Club will furnish the
trees. Roy Lee Carter, Florida


Extension Agent for Gull County and
members of the Garden Club will
assist in the planting.

Each grade K-6i will "adopt" a
tree, plant it and take care of it. not
only at planting time but throughout


the year. As each fith grade class
leaves the school the next year's
kindergarten class will adopt their
tree and water, fertilize and protect it.
This way all the students will be able
to look after their own tree and
watch it grow.


effect since the mid-50s and has
proved most successful and very
popular," explained Harold Mikell,
Director of the FDACS Division of
Forestry. "Then in 1981 the garden
clubs and nurserymen in 10 counties
offered to help us distribute potted
hardwood seedlings and we incorpor-
ated this into our Arbor Day pro-
gram."
The 1988 observance of Arbor Day
marks its 116th anniversary since it
began in Nebraska in 1872. Florida
celebrates Arbor Day on the third
Friday of January by statute which
makes it one of the earliest in the
United States. Texas and Louisiana
also observe Arbor Day on the third
Friday of January. National Arbor
Day is the last Friday of April.

her most prized Christmas gift a
chainsaw with a 16 inch bar given to
her by an understanding father.
Unlike many people who may
have received a chainsaw for Christ,
mas or whlolind they need one for the
first time aid go to their local garden
supply shop to buy one Ellen is no
stranger to this most useful of tools.
She, again unlike novices who see the
chainsaw only as a quick way to cut
down trees, knows the hazards of this
powerful tool and is aware of the
thousands of serious injuries and
numerous deaths causes by careless-
ness or lack of knowledge in using it.
Any power tool can cause injuries
but, according to the professional
foresters with the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Consumer
Services Division of Forestry, few
pose a hazard comparable to chain-.
saw kickback. This occurs usually as
a result of. the tip of the bar touching
an obstruction such as a vine, a knot
or a nail in the wood. It can also
happen if a cut closes and pinches the
blade.
Whatever the cause, the effect is
the same: the guide bar whirls up and
back so quickly that the operator
rarely has time to react to avoid
serious injury from the spinning,
slashing teeth. The arms, legs, face
and head usually catch the brunt of
the saw's violent action and only is the
operator at risk but so is anyone
helping or standing nearby.
Front and rear handguards,
chainbrakes, safety covers for the tip,
throttle locks and broken chain
catchers are being built into the
design of chainsaws. There's also a
low-kickback chain that reduces the
kickback but doesn't eliminate it
entirely. This chain is standard
equipment on many new models and
available as a replacement on older
models, a practice that experts
recommend even if the old chain is
still usable.
But chainsaw manufacturers can
do just so much to protect the users of
their equipment: Operator care and
judgment are still the most important
safeguards. Follow the starting in-
structions. Hold the saw firmly with
both hands. Use a wedge if there's a
chance a cut might pinch the blade.

Maintain a firm balance and stance
when cutting. Never hold the saw
above your head to cut limbs. When
you turn it off, keep the chainsaw well
away from your body until it stops
moving. And.he careful about touch-
hot parts of the saw.
Long-time chainsaw users and
new owners who feel confident with
their tool must guard against becom-
ing complacent and allowing their
thoughts to wander as they go about
their work. Keeping your mind on
your work is Rule No. 1 when using a
chainsaw; Daydreaming can be ex-,
tremely hazardous to your health.


January because that is the best time
to plant or transplant trees, according
to professional foresters. With the
exception of October, some states
observe Arbor Day every month from
early fall through late spring.

Please Don't Eat the Coconuts,!


Please don't eat the coconuts.
That's the advice of a University of
Florida palm expert who warns that
coconuts from trees treated with
antibiotics to stop lethal yellowing
could be hazardous to your health.
With the recent outbreak of the
palm disease in southwest Florida,
many cities and homeowners are
injecting palms with oxytetracycline,
a drug that causes resistance to the
disease as long as the treatment is
repeated every three or four months.
And now there's concern about the
safety of eating coconuts from these
injected palms.
"For a normal person, eating
coconuts from palms that have been
injected with oxytetracycline would
have no effect onr that person. But
some people can have allergic reac-
tions to some antibiotics," said Dr.

Henry Donselman of the Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences
(IFAS) research center in Ft. Lau-
derdale.
"Oxytetracycline is also known to
cause discoloring in the developing
teeth of newborns and toddlers," he
said.
"The bottom line on eating
coconuts from injected palm trees is
not how safe it is but the fact that it is
contrary to the product label recom-
mendations for use of the drug to
prevent lethal yellowing," he ex-
plained.
He said there is a distinction
between a chemical labeled for a food
crop and one labeled for an ornamen-
tal crop. The use of oxytetracycline on
"ornamental" palms is clearly stated
on the label.
"This means we need to recognize


that this is a non-food label and that
coconuts from these trees are not to be
used for consumption," Donselman
explained.
Lethal yellowing is a serious
disease that .-strikes the original
"Jamaica Tall" coconut palms in
south Florida. Although most of these
palms have already died of lethal
yellowing on the east coast of Florida,
large numbers still remain on the
west coast,
Donselman said injection of Ja-
maica Tall palms is an effective way
to combat the disease. "However, to
insure the continued overall tropical
beauty of palms in our landscape, we
need to place a strong emphasis on
underplanting our existing, suscepti-
ble palms with resistant ones such as
the Malayan Dwarf and hybrid
Maypan.
