Overpass Work

The state Department of Transportation hauled in these huge
chunks of concrete late last week and started work on replacing the
guard rails on the J.L. Sharit overpass this week,
According to a DOT spokesman, the portable concrete blocks will
be placed as a temporary guard rail over the overpass while the work
proceeds with removing the present railing and replacing it with a
solid concrete guard. The present wheel buffer is scheduled to be
removed also in the rehab project.
The new installation is designed to turn vehicles which hit the
guard rail back into the bridge, rather than possibly going through the
guard rail in a collision. Removal of the present tire bumper will also
make the road bed of the overpass wider than it is now.
The spokesman said the project should require about three months
to complete.


Etheridge, the alarm was sounded at
1:15 Wednesday morning, and when
the department arrived on the scene,
all three dwellings were burning.
"One was already gone and another
was completely engulfed in flames",
Etheridge said. "The third house was
just beginning to burn and we were
able to limit damages on the house to
about 40 percent destruction".
Chief Richter said the three
homes were in a state of dis-repair
and were slated for demolition by the
owner, Rawlis Leslie. "Actually,
some work had already started on
tearing one of the units down, but the
fire has taken care of that little,
chore", he said.
SMOKE INHALATION
Chief Etheridge said one of his
firemen, Billy Griffin, was slightly
hurt when he inhaled too much smoke
at the blaze. "He's all right now, but
he got a little too much smoke there
for a while".
Chief Richter said no one was
living in the homes at the time. "We
think somebody was inside the houses
at the time, for whatever reason, and
accidentally set one on fire. When one
started burning, the heat set the
others on fire. We have had com-
plaints, about activities in the empty
houses, which is the reason Leslie was
beginning to tear them down",
Richter said.
Fire chief Etheridge said bringing
the flames under control and putting,
Ihe fire out took nearly three hours.
"It was about 4:00 in the morning
before we put the trucks up. It was a
long night", Etheridge said..
S Police ChiefRichter said the state '"
Fire Marshal will continue on his
investigation into the matter all this
week. "Two men were seen leaving
one of the houses before the fire was
reported, and we're checking them
out", Richter said.


A fireman shoots a stream of water in one of the few minutes, before The Star photographer could get on the
burning homes. The blaze had been knocked down in just a scene.

Water, Sewer and Trash Removal Services


Draw the Attention of City Commissioners


Water and sewer matters attract-
ed the attention of the Port St. Joe City
Commission Tuesday night: sewer for
Ihe east end of 10th Street and water
and sewer for Ward Ridge.
Sewer for the 10th Street area is
more of a current project than the
Ward Ridge matter. Commissioner
James B. Roberts asked for a
clarification of where the project
stands to install the collection service
along 10th, east of Garrison Avenue,
which will also include installation of
service along Knowles Avenue, as
well. Roberts said he was of the
understanding the project was ready
to go to bid and asked, "What are we
waiting for?"
Clerk Alden Farris told the
Commissioner engineers were finish-
ing up working drawings and should
be ready to go to bid in just a few days.
Roberts said he thought the City


already had engineering drawings
which had been prepared two years
ago. "No", Farris said, "all we had
was an engineering plan for the
system, but we didn't have the
working drawings for actual installa-
tion".
Roberts then suggested the city
authorize an engineering study for
installation of water and sewer in
newly annexed Ward Ridge. "We need
to think about supplying the service to
those parts of Ward Ridge which do
not already have the central services.
I'm not suggesting we should put them
in this year, or maybe not even next
year, but when we can, we should
have the study in hand to begin work
with".
Mayor Frank Pate advised Rob-
erts he had been told the engineer-
ing study for water and sewer is a part
of the comprehensive plan which is


currently being prepared as a require-
ment of the state of Florida.
The comprehensive study, which
is being prepared by Smith and
Gillespie Engineers of Jacksonville, is
in its second phase of preparation.
TRASH REMOVAL
The Commission agreed Tuesday
night to continue concentrating on
ridding the city of unsightly trash for
the next few weeks, in an attempt to
aid the beautification committee in
cleaning up the city throughout.
Commissioner Roberts suggested
the city stop hauling off debris
remaining when people remove trees
from their property. "It's costing us
more than we can charge for it and
we're getting all kinds of criticism
when we haul them off", he said.
Roberts suggested the city keep
on hauling off trimmings and yard
debris on a regular schedule, just as


they have been doing in the past. "If a
person has trees removed, we need to
make them responsible to also have
the debris removed as well". The
Commission agreed with Roberts and
instructed public works superinten-
dent Mark Adkison to stop the service.
The city had been making a nominal
charge for the service.
The Commission also agreed to
assist in removing several old aban-
doned homes which are candidates for
condemnation. Attorney William J.
Rish advised the Board it would cost
more to file liens against the property
than they' would recover from its
possible sale.

Bids were received on two new
garbage trucks Tuesday night, but

"Only In America..."


Congressman Grant Still In Awe of Congress


Congressman Bill Grant was
openly in awe of the governmental
system of the United States Friday
morning, as he confessed to a group
who had gathered for a breakfast
meeting that his first term in office
has made him appreciate our system
of government even more than he had
in the past.
"My mother and daddy never
finished school. We lived without
electricity, indoor plumbing, air con-
ditioning; we shopped for many of our
clothes among the feed bags down at
the feed store and came up the hard
way. Somehow I managed to get
through high school and work my way
through college. And now I am a
representative of my native district in
Florida in the U.S. Congress. It was
beyond my wildest dreams when I
was a boy that this should ever happen
to me and it probably couldn't have
anywhere else but in America." This
was an unsophisticated statement by
an unsophisticated Congressman who


confessed, "I have made some
wrong decisions on things to come
before Congress in the past two years.
I confess it. But, I have tried and I
have voted what I thought was the
right way to vote at the time," Grant
said.
In giving an overview of impor-
tant matters which have faced the
Congress during the past two years
and which faces them now the
Congressman was very open in
expressing his position in each
matter.
The lawmaker said the military
had not been very effective in fighting
the drug traffic. "For instance," he
said, "It's sort of hard to keep track of
a small twin engine Beechcraft
aircraft with a sub-sonic F-15 very
effectively. The military's equipment
and training was for striking hard, not
stealth in discovery.
Cong. Grant said he was opposed
to the proposed minimum wage hike
to $5.50 per hour. "Both my parents


worked at minimum wage jobs during
my growing up years and I can
appreciate the need for minimum
wages, but the proposed rate would
cost the United States too many jobs.
Surveys show that for each 10 percent
increase in the minimum wage 200,000
are put out of work because many
employers simply cannot afford the
higher wages.
The Congressman said he sup-
ported the controversial civil rights
restoration bill because only projects
using federal funds were affected by
the measure.
Star Wars has done more to
nullify the threat of the nuclear
hammer which has been wielded by
the Soviets than any other system.
"Star Wars deserves our support
because it is the first system which
can deter nuclear missiles with
conventional methods. Star Wars will
work", he said. The Congressman
said the U.S. should pursue Star Wars

THURSDAY, JUNE 23,1988


Hunker Down with Kes


It's Home

Saturday, our city beautification committee will take
another stab at getting people out to do a little clean-up around
the downtown area of our city.
The last attempt resulted in a concentrated but highly
effective sprucing up of a downtown area and has encouraged
some activity on the part of private citizens and property
owners in other areas. Although we're not a member of the
committee and don't really know what they expected of the
project, we're highly pleased with the initial response to the
goal of cleaning up the city.
We know some were sort of disappointed that people didn't
turn out' by the hundreds to go over the city like a swarm of
locusts, sweeping every tid-bit of debris away forever. That
would have been the ideal solution to a very vexing problem,
but personally, we would prefer to see a slow swelling of an idea
until it literally innundates the community with a determina-
tion to keep on monitoring the appearance of our community on
into the future. These large initial turn-outs tend to go the other
way as time goes by and eventually we would be right back to
square one after the initial enthusiasm wore off.
We have ascertained through hearing comments, talking
with plain old Joe Blow and the man on the street that the vast
majority is concerned with keeping the city presentable. The
only thing left now is to put willing hands alongside our druthers
and what we all desire will come to pass.
We're firm believers that if our community is kept clean, it
won't be long before the appearance of buildings begins to
improve. It won't be much longer before you see a few new
business houses open and people begin to become interested in
the here and now and the future of their home town. In other
words, we believe clean up will engender a pride in our
community which will have enormous dividends in almost
every other area of our community living. No longer will Port
St. Joe just be a place to sleep and earn a living. It will be home.
And homes demand a lot of our attention and energies.



It Deserves Death

We can't understand a lot of things Congress does or doesn't
do, but we find it extremely hard to understand why a certain
segment of Congress would even hesitate at approving the
passage of a bill allowing the death penalty to be assessed
against those found guilty of committing murder in drug
related activities. Admittedly, we are old-fashioned, prejudic-
ed, conservative or red neck enough to believe that a person
who takes another's life on purpose deserves to forfeit his own
life as a result of that killing.
When you get right down to it, we believe drug dealers
deserve the death penalty like they receive in so many other
countrie.'of the world. There are more countries which assess
the death penalty for drug dealing that there are which merely,
issue slaps on the wrist, like our country does.
Capital punishment is a very volatile and emotional
subject, we admit. But, so is taking the life of another a very
volatile and emotional activity. When one is killed, it's so
permanent. There is no second chance. Too, no matter who the
person killed is, there are those who are left to mourn and they
are emotionally disturbed by the event. Even the families of
drug dealers experience this trauma.
Dealing in drugs is one of the most despicable activities we
can imagine a person indulging in. Ruining lives, families,
careers, futures and frying brains for money is one of the lowest
things a person could do to another person, in our viewpoint.
For this reason, we could almost support the death penalty for
those caught dealing in the garbage.
But that's another subject.
Again, we're delighted the Congress could take another
step toward discouraging the dealing in drugs. Now, if only they
could go a step farther and demand-rather than allow-the
death penalty for those who kill others in drug related
activities, we might be making even more progress against this
hideous activity.

Too Little, Too Late


Last time I made some comments
about Jane Fonda it was over the
radio and it got me into a peck of trou-
ble. The Civil Liberties Union or some
such "real American organization"
objected to the fact that I referred to
her as a communist. So let me say
right off the bat that my comments
here today don't necessarily reflect
the views of this newspaper. That's
the way it should be 'cause I don't
necessarily agree with a lot of stuff
the editor sees fit to print in this
paper. So if you've got a bone to pick
with this story, you come and see me
- don't bother Wesley, he doesn't


even read my column. And listen, my
opinions also don't necessarily reflect
the views of my first wife, Lewis Griz-
zard, the National Weather Service or
my mother and them. I'm solely
responsible for today's contents.
I'll tell you something else I
had sworn off Jane Fonda. She just
wasn't worth getting upset over. I've
got too many positive things going on
in my life to dwell on the likes of her.
Then, she presses the issue by getting
on television last week and "apolo-
gizing" for her anti-war antics of the
late sixties and early seventies. I


can't give you a first hand report as I
didn't see the show. If I had known it
was on I would have planned to miss
it. I don't go to any of her movies, I
don't read her books and I would die
from being overweight before I'd buy
one of her exercise tapes. Now, if
you're getting the idea that she is not
on my all-time-favorites list, you're
catching on mighty fast.
We had enough problems over the
Vietnam War without her. I was in
college in the late sixties and I heard
all of the pros and cons as the wave of
unprecedented political unrest swept

not only across our campuses but also
throughout our nation. I had class-
mates who migrated to Canada rather
than face the draft board. Listen, I
was only twenty years old and I didn't
know my elbow from a hot rock but I
did understand that we were at war
and our troops, as in any war, needed
all the support we could give them. To
do any less would be treason.
Jane Fonda said often and loud
that we shouldn't be fighting. We were
wrong to be there. We were attacking
innocent poeople. We were war mon-
grels. I was a little disappointed her
Dad didn't step in and do something.:
The time to discuss the "rights" or
"wrongs" of a war is before you get.
into them or after they are over. Once:
the shooting starts let's get together:
and do all we can to win.
And if anti-war symposiums,
fiery speeches and waving signs de-
nouncing the war wasn't enough, she
visits North Vietnam right in the mid-
die of the conflict. Can you imagine?
Who sent her on that trip anyway?
She broadcast anti-war messages
from the capital of the country we
were fighting against! She talked of
the excellent treatment our prisoners
of war were receiving, how no one was
being tortured. We all know better
than that we've got the truth from
too many returning POW's. It didn't
matter how off the mark the talks
were the communist propaganda
folks had a field day with it.
I had a very personal reason for
viewing all of this byplay with more
than just a passing interest. While
Jane was explaining her heart out in
Hanoi I had a nineteen year old
brother hunkered down in the jungle a.
few hundred miles south of there. I've
never heard him expound on the
"rights" or "wrongs" of Vietnam..
,I've never heard him' say a discour-
aging word about the United States of
America. He also is not big on war.
But our country called and he went. I
don't remember him asking a lot of
questions or searching for an "out" or
wondering, "Why me?" He just went.
God only knows how proud I am of my
little brother.

So please forgive me for a hard
stand against Jane Fonda. You don't
have to carry a card and have a birth-
mark on your forehead to be a com-
munist. And please forgive me for
having a difficult time accepting her
apology. I think if anything she helped
prolong the war. I know she made it
more difficult for a lot of American
soldiers. So a little "I'm sorry" on
T.V. sixteen years after the fact
doesn't cut it with me. She needs to
come down here and look me in the
eye and apologize. No, wait a minute,
she doesn't owe me a thing she
needs to apologize to my little brother.
Respectfully,
Kesley

We Fed Our Yankee Relatives Some "Real" Food


1 HOPE IT WASN'T evident that
my complete and undivided attention
wasn't focused on gathering, writing
and printing the news of Port St. Joe
and Gulf County in the issue of
The Star last week. Even though, I
admit that on several occasions each.
day last week, my interest was
elsewhere, I still tried to do my job
with the newspaper as it should have
been.
I missed some meetings and I
didn't attend a few functions I should
have last week, both from a necessity
and for the enjoyment of attending.
There was the missed City
Commission meeting, which was a
make-up last Tuesday night. But,
then, there was the one on Tuesday of
this week, so I figured I could do a
quick make-up here.
I missed a dinner invitation


Thursday from the Gulf Coast Com-
munity College Board of Directors,
but I confess I intended to take
advantage of this invitation, but the
high gear activities of this past week
caused me to let the function
completely slip my mind until about
two hours after the fact.
It was a week of activity which
made it of no use to write down a
calendar, as I might never pass that
way again and see what it had for me
to do for the day.

ACTUALLY, FRENCHIE and I
took a vacation in reverse last week.
By taking a vacation in reverse, one
has visitors come'to him who are on
vacation, rather than being faced with
the necessity to do the travelling to
some far distant place. A vacation in
reverse is when you are the host to
relatives who are vacationing.
We had a gaggle of relatives


swoop in on us from St. Paul,
Minnesota, and since we don't get to
see one another very often, and since
we like these relatives very much, it
took a good bit of our "gathering"
time last week to visit with our
visitors and spend some time with
them.
We had Yankees and we had good
old boys and we had regular South-
erners at our house last week.
One of those Yankee visitors, by
the name of 'Bogey' Caniff, said it was
worth the trip to Florida just to listen
to the funny way southerners talk.
Hey, get that! The funny way
southerners talk!
Old 'Bogey' is a right nice guy, for
a Yankee, with a sense of humor to go
along with his original quips about
almost anything going on around him.
Then there was brother-in-law,
George Francour, who was willing to
try any southern cooking except


turnip greens. "Yez guys can have
those things", he said, in his easily
understood Yankee brogue and inim-
itable manner.
'Bogey' and Belinda, his wife, had
three kids who have been brain-
washed. While coming down on the
plane, they were being told about the
cornbread, peas, grits, turnip greens
and such they would get in the south,
and the little darlings asked, "Don't
they eat any real food?"
I never could get a definition of
what 'real food' was, but I am certain
it was something like Cream of
Wheat, scrabble, and potatoes for
breakfast.
You wouldn't believe it, but about
the middle of the week, one of those
Yankee kids asked, "Could you get us
some more grits?"

SISTER-IN-LAW, OLIVIA, the
wife of George, brought two travelling


bags of such vital items as crackers,
cookies, puzzles, newspaper clip-
pings, pictures, recipes, etc.
Olivia is the one who sees unusual
items and gadgets and buys them. She
brought along a supply to us.
We needed all this stuff, too. We
hardly ever get any crackers any
more, or bridge mix, or home-made
fudge and mints. Frenchie's recipe
library has eroded to the point where
we would eat a different dish every
meal for the rest of our lives if she
were to resolve to make a different
recipe every day.
Olivia is a very happy, laid-back
person, who lets cares roll off her
shoulders like rain. She enjoys
everything she does, and George just
stands back and watches.

THE VISIT FROM the Yankee
inlaws and their daughter and family
naturally brought the relatives from


middle Georgia to our house to visit
with the Yankee relatives. It wasn't
what you would call a family reunion,
but there was enough family there to
get our refrigerator cleaned out of
left-overs, so you know it was no
light-weight invasion.
Part of the group went home
Thursday of last week and on that
evening, we had a home-made ice
cream night for those who were left.
There were six gallons of ice cream
eaten that night, which sort of gives
you an inkling we had a reasonable
facsimile of the great locust invasion
which invaded the western plains
during the dust bowl days.
It was a talking, visiting, eating
good time at our digs last week with
an occasional period taken each day
to get the paper out.
You still may not understand any
short-comings for last week's paper,
but at least you now know the reason
why.

Kitty Cat
MY DAUGHTER HAS had several cats, the last of which she
acquired about two years ago. All of her prior cats liked to play "Highway
Roulette" with cars and trucks and lost.
I have never been particularly fond of cats, but, like most parents, I
have tolerated them because my children enjoy them so much. My wife
and I have never allowed animals in the house, regardless of how fond the
children were of them. .that is until "Kitty" came along.
+++++
"LOOK WHAT MY FRIEND gave me, Daddy!", she said, her eyes
pleading. "Isn't HE as cute as can be?"
"Shelley," I said, with a trace of disapproval in my voice. ."Oh, I
know, Daddy," she broke in, "He can't come inside and I'll be sure and
feed and take care of him. Can I keep him, Daddy, please?"
As it turned out, Kitty was my favorite cat. He was a scrapper and he
loved to hunt. He also liked to chase girl cats. If I had spent more time
with him, I believe he would have learned to enjoy cold beer.
Anyway, Kitty, like most children's pets, became a part of our
family, but he stayed in the yard.. .until the first hard freeze we had last
fall.
"Shelley wants to know if she can bring Kitty in the laundry room
tonight," my wife said. "It's supposed to freeze and they're telling
everyone to bring all pets inside."
Kitty came in the laundry room the first night. The next night he was
in the den. The following night he was in the kitchen and then the whole
house. It was the longest freeze I have ever seen in Florida!
Believe it or not, that cat knew he had beaten me. He' would lay on
Shelley's bed and look at me as if he were saying, "I'm king of this place
now, big fellow!" I thought, "If I didn't love my daughter so much.. ."
I didn't kick that cat one time. I knew he would tell Shelley!
LAST WEEK SHELLEY went home with some friends of ours who
live in Louisiana. She is still there but is due home today.
Last Friday we traveled to Atlanta to visit my brother and his family.
Our oldest son was charged with feeding Kitty and his newly acquired
dog.
Yesterday, while Clint and I were mowing the lawn, I noticed Kitty
was acting awfully lazy. It must be the heat, I thought as I reached down
to pet him. As I stroked his head and shoulders and down over his
stomach, I noticed a large, hard lump, about the size of a baseball, in the
lower part of his stomach. On closer examination, I found he had another
lump, only smaller, on the other side of his stomach, in about the same
place.
"Something is bad wrong with this cat," I told Clint. "We had better
take him to the vet and get him cured before Shelley gets home."
The examination and diagnosis were not good. Kitty had leukemia
and it had developed into cancer of the kidneys and Dr. Nelson
recommended that Kitty be put to sleep.
Killing animals was a part of our country life when I grew up. We
killed and butchered cows and hogs and one time had to shoot a horse that
was terminally ill.
When I was about ten, I had to bury my all-time, favorite dog, Bruno.
Although it broke my heart, I didn't cry. It was an unspoken country law
That animals didn't live long and although we loved them, we didn't
become permanently attached to them.
CLINT WANTED TO help bury Kitty. I found a fitting place back in
the woods, under a shady tree and we dug a deep hole and gently placed
Kitty in it. Clint wanted to cover him up.
'"You canwait in the truck; Dad, while I finish this up," he said, his
.,-head down ashe.geintly, shoveled the dirt in the hole.
He was not crying when he .came to the truck, but his eyes were
awfully red and moist. He climbed in the back of the truck and I drove
home, with a large lump in my throat.
I'm not nearly as tough as I once was or thought I was. Maybe age has
something to do with it.

apply to other nuclear-owning coun-

Moamar Khadafi is a genuine,
card-carrying idiot who would not

Grant said the budget would be

present world situation continues as it
is. "If we could institute presidential

it would surely be balanced but I have
hope for it being balanced anyhow",

Five different firms bid on the two
units, filing bid prices which ranged
from $50,331 to $54,831 per truck when
some of the bidders said the lowest bid
was for a truck which would not meet
specifications. The low bidder claim-
ed his unit met the bids as they were
written.
Adkison defended his specifica-
tions saying they were written around
the requirements for the last truck,
which was a Ford and the questioned
bid was for a Ford truck.
Williams Equipment Company of
Tallahassee and James Bray of St.
Joe Motor Company, said the bid unit
was for a F series truck and the
specifications called for an L series
truck. "There is a big difference"
Bray said. "The F series is a much
lighter and cheaper truck than the L
series".
The Board agreed to reject all the
bids submitted and tighten up on their
specifications, sending out another
call.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business, the Commission
agreed to go on record as officially
opposed to closing the emergency
room of Gulf Pines hospital-.
The hospital has filed for a
certificate of need to close the service,
which must first be subjected to a
public hearing before the certificate is
granted.
Mayor Pate remarked, "If some-
thing had to be closed, I would rather
lose the hospital than the emergency
room".

Quick Siummer Storm


Lashes the| Beach


A quick and powerful summer
storm whipped into the St. Joe Beach
area off the bay Sunday afternoon,
causing damages to several homes,
vehicles and signboards.
The storm, carrying hail, stiff
winds and a possible tornado swept
into the beach area at around 3:00
p.m., with hardly any advance notice
or warning. The storm band swept
across the Gulf Aire vicinity and cut a
path all the way to Overstreet,
peppering the area with hail the size
of marbles and a torrential downpour
for about 20 minutes.
Joannie Hanson said she saw the
rain begin with a soft sprinkle and
decided to set her house plants outside
to get the water. "Before I could start
putting them out, the rain stopped to
just an occasional sprinkle and I
decided I had'just as well leave them
inside. Then the storm hit in full
force," she said.
Hanson said that suddenly it was
dark and the hail. started peppering
down. "You could hear the wind
roaring and you could feel the storm


'*pulsating as it passed over. It was a
-.,scary feeling".
Hanson said the hail damaged six
automobiles outside their business,
the Wonder Bar, and turned a satellite
dish completely around. The antenna
was bolted to a buried slab of
concrete.
Across the highway from the bar,
the winds snapped off a large sign in
Front of Sea Shores subdivision. The
sign was attached to four utility-type
;poles which were snapped off at the
ground.
Bill Holten, who lives at Over-
street, said the hail was still pelting
down when it reached his property. "I
^iiad the-stable doors open at both ehds
and couldn't get them shut because of
the wind. The rain blew in one door
and other the other door, wetting
down everything inside the stable",
Holten said.
Several reports were given of
shingles blown from houses, beach
and lawn furniture being blown
around and broken up, although no
injuries were reported from the hail.

many students, like myself, that
would more than enjoy coming to the

MEDICINE & PHARMACY
A HEALTH TEAM


S Medicine and Pharmacy had a common beginning
before splitting into today's two professions. As health
knowledge developed it became increasingly difficult
for any single group to keep up with progress in all
S phases of the health field.
Today, we rely upon the physician to diagnose the
health problem and specify the medicine best
W qualified to correct it. We as practicing pharmacists w
A then must keep up with progress in the general health A
field and make available to the physician and his
patients the hundreds of newer and more effective
medications that are becoming available.

County Extension Agent
June first marked the official
beginning of the hurricane season. In
past years, Florida has had its share
of these destructive storms, and is
Sure to have more in the future so it is
important to develop plans to mini-
* mize hurricane damage by taking
specific steps to protect ourselves, our
homes, and landscape plants.
The arrival of hurricane season
signals the need to develop some
contingency plans to guard lives and
property from powerful winds and
flooding rains. Ornamental plants and
other landscape objects are especially
vulnerable. My information on this
topic was provided by Extension
Urban Horticulture Specialist Dr.
Robert Black, with IFAS of the
University of Florida.
One of the most important protec-
tive measures is to stake down the
new trees and shrubs on home
grounds By "new" we mean any
small trees or large shrubs planted
within the past year. The stakes
should be two or three feet long. You
will need three or four per tree. Drive
them into the soil to a depth of 18 to 24
inches, slanting them away from the
tree at a 45 degree angle. This will
make them more secure and less
likely to be pulled out of the ground.
HOw far you place the stakes from
the tree will depend on its size. A
general rule is to locate the stakes the
same distance from the base of the
tree as the height above the ground at
which you plan to attach the guide
wires. To secure the wires and keep
:them from slipping off, make notches
in the stakes a few inches from the top
of each. Then, attach wires in these
notches, and run them to a point about
two-thirds up the trunk. Before
attaching the wires to the tree, run
them through lengths of garden hose
to protect the bark. Now, tighten the
wires enough to prevent excessive
tree movement, but not so tight that
they may break or, worse yet, cause
the tree to break in high winds.
In addition to staking and guying
small trees and shrubs, you should
inspect larger trees for broken, dead
or damaged limbs and remove them
as soon as possible. Hurricane ,winds
can tear such limbs from a tree, and


turn them into dangerous projectiles.
However, remember that it is not a
good idea to prune healthy branches
before a hurricane, because this
encourages new growth which is very
vulnerable to wind damage.
During the storm season, it is
especially important to keep roof
gutters clear of leaves, twigs, and
other debris. Drainage should be at its
best to cope with heavy hurricane
rains.
If you have hanging baskets, tub
plants, or large potted plants, on
exposed porches or patios, they should
be moved indoors ahead of the storm.
Hurricane winds can damage or
completely destroy both exposed
plants and containers. Other loose
items which can be hurled about, such
as lawn furniture, garden tools, toys,
and garbage cans, also should be
brought inside before strong winds
strike. In addition to being severely
damaged or destroyed, such objects
can become lethal flying objects
during a hurricane. .
While we all hope our state avoids
serious hurricane damage this sea-
son, it is still very important to be
prepared, so, check your home ground
thoroughly, keeping precautionary
pointers in mind. And, if you detect
potential dangers, take corrective
action promptly.

get immediate medical attention from
a doctor, said Weddle. A doctor must
find out whether a stroke, a TIA, or
another medical problem has occur-
red. Prompt treatment to these
symptoms could prevent death or
disability from a stroke."
"High-risk patients must also
learn to recognize the signs of TIA and
tell their doctors about them if they
happen," said Weddle. Besides TIAs,
the primary stroke risk factors that
can be reduced by treatment are high
blood pressure (the single biggest
, factor), heart disease, and a high red
blood cell count.
Elevated blood cholesterol, cigar-
ette smoking, excessive drinking,
physical inactivity, and obesity are
secondary risk factors because they
increase the risk of heart disease.
American Heart Association-funded
researchers continue to explore ways
to prevent stroke.

They are everyday people from
every walk of life, but as volunteers
they are serving extraordinarily
needy people who require help,
compassion and guidance.
Guardians Ad Litem (ad litem is
Latin for "guardian for litigation")
are appointed by the Court to
voluntarily represent the best inter-
ests of an abused or neglected-child.
The program, a function of the
Juvenile Court, is based on the belief
that trained volunteers, when support-
ed by professional staff, can effective-
ly protect the rights of abused and
neglected children, improving the
quality of life for the child whose
needs are served and, ultimately,
contributing to an improvement in the
quality of life in the community.
In the 14th Judicial Circuit,
serving Bay, Gulf, Calhoun, Jackson,
Holmes, and Washington counties, the
program is coordinated by Charlotte
Prince.
"Thousands of abused and ne-
glected children filter through the
Courts each year in Florida," accord-
. ing to Charlotte Prince. "Without the
active support of our volunteers who
are assigned to assist them,, their
voices might go unheard and their
best interests overlooked in the
complicated and overburdened ad-
versary process."
Prince said that the volunteers
involved in the program act as
independent investigator, monitor,
protector, reporter and spokesperson
for children who find themselves
thrust into the Court System frequent-
ly for reasons beyond their own
control. Many of the children served
by the program have already been
victimized in one way or another,
according to Prince, and the purpose
of the program is to help assure that
their rights as youthful citizens.
"Any person who has common
sense, good judgement and a willing-


ness to help children, can be a
Guardian Ad Litem. Ms. Prince said
that citizens who volunteer need no
expertise in law, counseling, or
therapy because they will not perform
those specific roles for the child.
Those interested in learning more
about the Guardian Ad Litem Pro-
gram may contact Ms. Prince at
' 785-740W or write to P.O. Box 2466,
Panama City, FL 32402.

CARD OF THANKS
We would like to thank our many

Florida Power Says Customers Will See Reduction In Power Bills


Heading into the summer air
conditioning season, Florida Power
Corporation residential customers
will see a 4 percent reduction in their
bills, effective next month, because of
a decrease in the fuel charge portion
of electricity rates.
Compared to 1986 bills, this latest
decrease means that the typical
monthly 1,000 kilowatt hour bill will be


about $15 less or more than 18
percent lower that it was two years
ago.
"We're very pleased that our
customers continue to pay some of the
lowest electric rates in the state,"
said Allen J. Keesler, Jr., Florida
Power Prsident and CEO. "There is
every indication that favorable fuel
prices and strong performance from


our power plants will enable us to seek
an even further decrease in bills again
in October."
With the decrease, which was
approved recently by the Public
Service Commission, the typical
residential bill will go from $69.82 to
$66.80.
Keesler partially credited the
operation of the Crystal River Nu-
