Series of Important Public Hearings Begin Tuesday


A series of important public
hearings, scheduled for this
month, will begin Tuesday night
in Wewahitchka.
At Tuesday's hearing, the
County Commission will receive
public input on the proposed mo-
tor fuel tax in Wewahitchka. The
hearing will be the second of
three which had been scheduled
prior to considering the measure
for approval.
The Wewahitchka hearing


will be held at 6:00 p.m., in the
Wewahitchka High School Com-
mons Area.
The Commission is proposing
levy of a six cent motor fuels tax
for 10 years for the purpose of
building and improving roads in
the county.
Seven public hearings are
scheduled for various times on
Tuesday, June 13, which is the
regular meeting day of the Com-
mission.


The first of the hearings will
be at 9:05 a.m., considering the
closure of a section of Fourth
Street at Beacon Hill. At 9:10
a.m., closure of a Beacon Hill al-
ley will be considered. At 9:30
a.m., the Board meets with direc-
tors of the Division of Forestry
work crews to discuss work bene-
fits the county can expect from
the newly opened camp. The fi-
nal morning hearing will be at
10:00 a.m., when the final hear-


ing will be held on the controver-
sial alcoholic beverage ordinance.
During a special afternoon
session on June 13, the Commis-
sion will be considering a road
paving priority list at 4:00 p.m.
Final hearing at 5:45 will decide
on the Beacon Hill alley question
and at 6:00 p.m., the final hear-
ing will be held on the proposed
motor fuel tax ordinance. A vote
for rejection or adoption will be
taken following the hearing.

It Was A

Safe Holiday

In Gulf Co.
Port St. Joe and- Gulf
County spent a week end holi-
Sday with its citizens enjoying
'themselves in a safe manner,
according to local enforcement
agencies.
"It was no more than a
normal week end throughout
the county," Sheriff Al Harri-
son said. 'We had a few small
fender-benders and more traf-
fic than usual, but we had no
fatalities and no injuries re-
ported in the county for the
entire long week end period."
Port St. Joe Police Chief,
Carl Richter reported a "few
disturbance type calls, but
nothing out of the ordinary,
even though it was a holiday
week end. We just had minor
calls and maybe even a few
less than usual," he said.
Both law enforcement of-
fices said there were no unu-
sual disturbances from the
large number of people visiting
the beach areas throughout
the county.
Gulf Pines Hospital said
there were no holiday-related
injuries brought in for treat-
ment.
More and more people eve-
ry year are beginning to ob-
serve Memorial Day here in
Gulf County, but apparently
are playing it safe while they
play.


A 61-year-old Panama City
grandmother, appearing to be out
for a ride with two of her grand-
children, was arrested and
charged with transporting and
sales of cannabis last Thursday,
according to the Gulf County
Sheriffs office.
The woman, Ruthie Mae Vin-
cent, 61, of 409 School Avenue,
Panama City, had been under
surviellance for two wpeks as a
transporter of marijuana to
points in Wewahitchka and Port
St. Joe.
Deputy Captain Jack Davilla
spotted Vincent, driving a 1973
sedali, with two small children
inside on Highway 98 just west of
Highland View. Davilla noticed
the car was carrying an improper
tag and stopped it to investigate.
On learning Vincent did not have
a driver's license, Davilla contin-
ued to question her. Vincent
agreed to a search of her vehicle,
after the investigating officer no-
ticed some plastic bags sticking


from under the seats.
Davilla's search yielded the
15 bags of cannabis and nearly
$1,700 in cash. Sheriff Al Harri-
son estimated the cannibis taken
from the car would have a value
of $700 to $800.
Davilla estimated the weight
of the ,marijuana to be about a
pound. Possession of 20 grams or

Water Syster
Tests have verified the belief
of the County Commission that
the water distributed by the
Beaches and Highland View wa-
ter systems is properly treated
with chlorine and perfectly safe.
Tests were recently ordered
by the Commission to answer
charges from two residents that
the water had no chlorine in it;


and was not pure.
Late last week the tests were
in, verifying the fact the water
was properly chlorinated and
treated. and that it was perfectly
safe.
The water originates from
Port St. Joe's treatment plant,
where it is treated regularly to
specifications set by the Depart-


ment of Environmental Regula-
tion and the Florida Department
of Rehabilitative Services and
tested regularly in a manner pre-
scribed by both agencies.
Information furnished the
board by administrative assist-
ant, Larry Wells, said indepen-
dent tests have proven the water
is regularly treated and meets all


standards of DER and HRS.
The report states, "The water
is not contaminated and there is
an acceptable level of chlorine
present."
The City of Port St. Joe has
regularly earned resolutions of
commendation from HRS for the
quality of its water and the effi-
ciency of its water plant.


Sheriff Al Harrison fans out $1,700 in cash and dis-
plays 15 bags of marijuana confiscated from a carrier
last Thursday.


Cut Off From the Outside World


SJT&T Long Distance Cable
Communications between Port St. Joe and the rest of
the world were cut off for nearly seven hours last Thursday.
There was no calling in and there was no calling out.
A contractor doing some construction work for a cable-
vision company at St. Joe Beach accidentally cut St. Jo-
seph Telephone and Telegraph's main long distance con-
nector cable, stopping all long distance transmission in and

This heavy conduit material is designed to protect
the fine spun glass transmission lines inside, but a
trenching machine made short work of the protective
sheath and the line it was protecting Thursday morn-
ing of last week.


Cut, Isolating Community
out of the area from about 11:45 a.m., to 7:05 p.m.
The cable cut was one of the new fiber optic long dis-
tance transmission cables, recently installed by the compa-
ny. The line was buried about three feet in the ground at
the point of the rupture. According to Higdon Swatts, Oper-
ations Manager for St. Joe T&T, the cables are normally
buried from three to four feet deep. 'This is usually deep
enough to escape any excavations by other utilities," Swatts
said.
Not only did the severed cable cut off long distance
phone service in and out of the city, it also interrupted
many direct computer hook-up daily order systems which
daily originate inside the service area. Swatts said many of
these business managers sent their order discs to Panama
City for transmission while the local system was out of ser-
vice.
It was the first such accident with the new fiber optic
lines and the company's first such emergency situation
with the tiny glass fiber transmission lines. The glass trans-
mission line is about the size of sewing thread and carries a
light beam through a hole in the middle on which 8,250
separate functions are happening at one time. Repairs from
breaks in the line are affected by a special "welding" ma-
chine, which attaches the two broken ends together while
still maintaining the integrity of the tiny hole inside to allow
for traffic transmission.
Technicians were sent to the break site at the intersec-
tion of Ponce deLeon Street and Highway 98 immediately,
when the break was reported, to start repairs. A repair crew
worked constantly until service was restored at 7:05 p.m.
"A repair of this type interruption takes precedence over
whatever else we might be doing," Swatts said. 'This partic-
ular job was top priority last Thursday until we had service
restored once again," he said.
At the present time, the only long distance transmission
in and our of Port St. Joe is sent through the line to a long
distance center in Panama City, where it is put on the na-
tion-wide network of American Telephone and Telegraph
Company.

License


Just a Ripple on the Water
The Florida Senate approved levying a salt water fishing li-
cense fee last week. While that move wasn't the final one to-
ward making the license mandatory in our state, and this is be-
ing written prior to the Memorial Day holiday, we can see
where only a super-human action by someone is going to stop
it from being approved as a part of the law of the land-excuse
us-the salt water.
Those occasional salt water anglers can still wet their hooks
from the shore, from docks, bridges, or presumably, any per-
manent structure, without purchasing the $12.00 fee.
That's for now.
Will it be the next session, or two sessions down the road
before someone gets the idea we might get a couple more tax
dollars in the till if we quit desciminating and spread this li-
cense fee to everyone. We can hear it now, "If one has to pay a
fee, shouldn't everyone be forced to pay a fee?"
One of the Senators remarked the approval of a license for
the-privilege of fishing for salt water fish was the last natural
resource to be taxed, so he opined it was high time the Legisla-
ture finally got around to it.
It has been two years and three months since we last wet a
hook in the briny. We also realize the manner in which we ap-
proached this highly favored of sports will still be license free:
at least for a time. We hardly expect it to be a free privilege for
very long.
There aren't very many things in this world which are free,
not even the license-less privilege to fish in salt water. There is
cost there somewhere, for someone. We had just rather the
Legislature had exercised some prudence in the matter and, left
well enough alone.
We see where we are going to have problems from this situ-
ation from another avenue. We're thinking of where the person
is going to use his $12.00 license fee. Many people already feel
hard at those who get on what they consider their property to
fish, use the beaches, etc. When the license holder drags out
that license in such a situation, waves it in the complainer's
face and says, "I paid $12.00 for the privilege," the sand is go-
ing to hit the fan.



The Real Problem
Taking pictures the other day of the drug bust you see pub-
licized in this week's issue of The Star, the subject naturally
came up of the current discussed matter in our county as to
whether or not Sunday alcohol sales should be allowed to con-
tinue.
At last Tuesday's public hearing, a bar operator made the
statement, "Only one percent of the customers who come in ac-
tually cause problems." Sheriff Harrison rebutted this state-
ment. The day of taking the picture, Sheriff Harrison, in an-
.swering questions, said, "The real drug problem in our county
is alcoh6bl."The. Sheriff went on to say he would estimate there
were about 150 recreational and serious drug users in the
county, but pointed out even that number was a serious prob-
lem.
'The real problem we have is with alcohol. It's more of a
problem, so far as problems for our department, than drugs
are."
Well that one shocked us. We knew that alcohol abuse has
historically been a problem ever since man got up enough
nerve to drink liquid off fermented grains and such. But to say
it was more of a problem than drugs had never occurred to us.
We carried the matter a step further and asked, "Right now,
this very day and this very minute, what percentage of your
jail inmates are in because of alcohol abuse and what percent-
age are in because of drug charges being filed against them?"
Sheriff Harrison, without pausing to consider the question,
answered, "It's about 50-50. We have Just about as many in for
one infraction as for another."
Whether you are pro or anti alcohol and whether you are
one of those who would legalize or step up enforcement against
illegal drugs, a revelation such as this one in Gulf County was
surprising, to say the least.
To us, it means we need to give just as much attention to
one problem_ as we do to the other.


I Hunker Down With Ole Kes A


Adios, Compadre


Probably the question asked
of me most concerning my little
stories each week is, "Are they
true?" Well, shucks and boy
howdy, you don't possibly think I
could make all this stuff up, do
you? The second thing folks want
to know is, "How did you get
started in the writing-it-down
business?"
Once upon a time, some un-
suspecting souls down here at
The Star asked me if I would
write some stories for the paper.
Naturally, I told them I didn't
have time, I've never written a
thing in my life and I didn't have
any stories. I thought that was
the end of it.
In March, 1984, a cat that
had been living with us since
1976 took sick. I mean real sick. I
thought that thing was going to
die. Cathy was crying and saying,
"Do something." The boys were
staring at the cat and then at me,
"Daddy, you've got to make Sue-
Cat well."


Now, folks, I'm not into catol-
ogy. I don't like cats. We did have
one when I was growing up. We
named him Tom. We chased rats
down at the corn crib, we rolled
in, the grass, we'd hold him up-
side down, about a foot off the
ground, let go, and be amazed
that he'd land on his feet every-
time. When I was about 10, Tom
just up and died on us. I never
forgave that cat for leaving me
alone.
So when this new cat showed
up at our back steps out of the
blue, I told Cathy not to feed it,
don't play with it, ignore the thing
- it will go away. Either that cat
fell in love with our steps or Ca-
thy was slipping it some chicken
chunks when I wasn't looking.
The cat wouldn't leave.
We went to visit my mother
that summer we were gone for
a month. As I pulled into the
drive, I told Cathy we'd stayed
away too long, we wouldn't do
that again, but at least we'd been


gone so long that the cat would'a
found a new home. I walked
through the house, checked to
see that everything was still in
place, unlocked the back door
and there sat Sue-Cat looking up
at me like, "I kinda' took care of
the place while ya'll were gone."
Sue-Cat stayed. Perseverance
needs to be rewarded on any lev-
el. She kept out of my way which
showed that she had some sense.
She didn't like to be handled and
she didn't want you to fuss over
her. She just wanted to be a part
of the family.
I stood over that sick cat, my
wife crying, the boys imploring
me to "fix it" and thought about
how tough this cat was. If I'd give
her a chance, she'd make it. I re-
membered old Tom. I picked Sue-
Cat up and took her to the doc-
tor. Her liver had failed. Three
days in the hospital, several IV's
and eighty dollars later Sue-Cat
was back on track. I told you she
was tough.

That afternoon as I sat in my
chair, holding a cat, that I had
never touched before and didn't
even like and had not wanted
when it showed up nine years
ago, in my lap I got to thinking,
"I'm out eighty bucks and I didn't
even know the cat was mine."
There must be a story there
somewhere. I wrote it down, The
Star printed it and as Yogi Berra
would say, 'You can look it up."
We started buying Tender Vit-
ties, Sue got to stay in the house.
That crazy cat would jump up in
my lap as I watched T.V. When
Cathy and the boys went to Ten-
nessee for spring break, Sue-Cat
took to sleeping In bed with me.
Listen, it wasn't that bad. She

ETAOIN SHRDLU BY: WESLEY R. RAMSEY I



Summer Would Be Perfect If It Wasn't for the Hot Weather It Brings


I HOPE YOU people who
were complaining about the cool
weather back in December, Janu-
ary and February are happy now.
I think the cool weather is gone
and the sweating weather is with
us in full force.
, And, it will be with us until
early October, if past experience
is any indication of what is to be.
The real summer time isn't
here yet, but it's enough of a rea-
sonable facsimile to discourage
me from looking forward to the

months of July and August. If
you want to know the truth
about it, I'm looking forward to
these months with dread.
There is no way I will be com-
pletely comfortable again until
the first breath of freshening
weather in late October or early
November. When the frost once
again threatens the pumpkin in


the early morning hours and the
day warms up to the low 70's
during the day, I'll be comfortable
once again.

I CAN STILL remember old
'Cuz' Vandevender telling me,
"I'm glad it's getting hot. The hot-
ter it gets the better I like it!"
I can't make that statement.
Hot weather and I just don't get
along.
I have already heard about
dog days. Is it, or isn't it? There
are several formulas about when
dog days are with us, and all of
them are sworn truth. The only
thing I know for sure is that it's
hot during dog days and with
that criteria, it could very well be
dog days right now.
One of the definitions I have
always used is that when the
weather gets to where it isn't fit
for a dog to be out in; that's dog
days.


THE ONLY GOOD thing
about hot summer weather is
that is the time when our part-
time gardeners start bringing in
some bragging stuff in earnest.
A while back I told you about
the produce samples which have
been showing up on our table,
but this week is going to be one'
of the choice ones of the season.
Then the other day Hoke
Glass came by to brag on his
corn he is growing "with stalks
over 10 feet tall!" Well, after al-
lowing as to how one couldn't eat
the stalks, and revealing my spe-
cial fee-one picture equals one
mess of fresh roasting ears-we
struck a bargain and I went to
Hoke's garden to picture his corn
crop for all to see. Actually, his
corn was over 12 feet tall.
It even surprised Hoke.
I'm looking forward to my
mess of fresh corn. Fresh corn on
the cob is my favorite vegetable of


If it wasn't for hot weather. I
guess I would be stuck with de-
pending on Birdseye or DelMonte
to satisfy my corn hunger.
Also, if it wasn't for hot
weather, my tomatoes would still
be just mere plants with only a
promise of ripe fruit at some
point in time when the weather
got warm.
As it is, I have about a dozen
healthy plants just loaded with
tomatoes busily getting ripe.
Too, my grape crop has taken
off and started growing like mad
since the weather has gotten
warm. What was several stems of
grapes about the size of B-B's,
are now stems filling out with
grapes about the size of .
grapes!
From all of this you might get
the idea I'm softening on my
opinion toward hot weather, but
that isn't so. I still don't like it. I


just like all the
with it.


things It brings


ANOTHER THING the hot
weather brings with it is the pro-
pensity toward having holidays
regularly all summer long. [While
I was setting this type, I made a
typo and set the word 'simmer'
rather than 'summer']
That's really the reason I
don't like hot weather very much.
One simmers so much in the
summer, the two words are al-
most synonymous.
But back to the'holidays.
After Easter has come and
gone, and, along with it, the last
cool snap of the year, there is
Mother's Day, Shavout, Father's
Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, In-
dependence Day, Labor Day,
Rosh Hashanah ... and most of
them come on Monday.
That means even Mother Na-
ture knows the heat of the sum-


mer brings about a need for fre-
quent rests from the rigors of
toiling in the heat.
There's a poem by Rudyard
Kipling .that says something
about only mad dogs and Eng-
lishmen come out in the noon-
day sun.
But, if you have lived in Flori-
da for any length of time, you
know there are flocks of folks
who come here every year to get
coated in sand, sweat and suntan
oil. They pay money to get all
that gook all over them and go
home trilling over what a good
time they had.
Now, any self respecting Flo-
ridian worth his salt will say
nothing of such things being un-
comfortable and anything but de-
sireable. And, so it is to many
people. It just makes me uncom-
fortable.

Ain't Nothin' But Country
"Who does he think he is?" I once heard a woman remark
about a man we both knew. "He ain't the big-shot he thinks he
is. I knowed him when he weren't nobody!"
One of the most miserable times of my life was when I first
went off to college. Being from the country and never having the
advantage of an alarm clock, I was accustomed to getting up
early without having someone wake me. My built-in alarm
would go off promptly at 5:30 a.m., just as it did when I was
home. o
My first year in college was 1957, and there were four of us
in one room. By the time the others were up, I would have
shaved, dressed, eaten breakfast, cleaned and mopped the
room, swept the hall, cut the grass around the dormitory and
read the newspaper. There wasn't much to do in Raymond, Mis-
sissippi, that early in the morning.
Later, when I went to the University of Southern Mississippi,
I pretended I was from the city. When people asked me, I would
say, "I'm from Pensacola. Where are you from?"
Actually, I was from the Pensacola area, but Ferry Pass was
a far cry and distance from downtown Pensacola. At least it was
then.
Our family lived on 10 acres in Ferry Pass and we farmed all'
of it we could stick a plow in and then some. We also owned
some property in Santa Rosa County, where my father's folks
lived and we farmed a bunch of them acres. When I told people I
was from Pensacola, I had to keep my hands clenched least they
would see the farm dirt under my fingernails.
The day Wilbur Luker picked me up to go to college I was
chopping firewood. I put the ax down, loaded my metal footlock-
er into his car, hugged momma, said goodbye to daddy, took one
long, last look at that 10 acres and promised myself that I would
never, as long as I lived, if I could help it, plow another row of
anything, chop another stick of wood, milk another cow, slop
another hog, feed another chicken or pick another pea or but-
terbean. I had worked my fingers to the bone and had had
enough of the "country life".
My family and I love this area of Florida. For years my wife
and I have tried to find an affordable location on the bay or the
Gulf to build a home. Living on the water, we thought, is all it
would take to make our lives complete.
Recently, however, we have been looking at some property a
little north of Port St. Joe, out in the country. Something-maybe
it's my imagination-seems to be telling me that I might be happi-
er with several acres in the country than I would with one lot on
the beach. In the country I might want to have a dog or two in
the yard, a horse or cow to feed and take care of, a couple of
hogs to keep the snakes out and a few chickens to wake me in
the morning instead of the sounds of cars and trucks rushing
by trying to get someone to work on time.
It may be age, but the sounds of the country seem more
suitable to me than do the sounds of the city or the beach. I
hope that one day, before I'm too old to really enjoy it, I'll have
me a comfortable place, way, way out in the country.

Sharks Win In Jamboree


Port St. Joe football fans are
in for an exciting season this fall,
if the Sharks' performance in the
spring jamboree last Friday night
is any indication.
The Sharks marched onto the
field with the 4A Rutherford
Rams and the 5A Mosley Dol-
phins and looked as if they be-
longed there and the Rams and
Dolphins belong somewhere else.
DEFEAT RAMS 14-6
The Rams' scored first on a
66-yard option play on their sec-
ond possession of the ball. It was
the only score allowed by the
:Sharks in either of their appear-
*ances Friday night.
The Sharks did an excellent
job of stopping the Rams' high-
powered running attack during
the first quarter. When the
Sharks got the ball, they took to
the air and quarterback Bill Ram-
sey drilled the ball to receivers
Ken Monette for five yards and
Eric Langston for nine yards until
Ramsey hit Monette on a 37-yard
aerial in the end zone for their
first TD of the evening.
After the Shark score, Willie
Smith .caused a fumble on the
Rams' first offensive play and Ty-
rone Hamilton covered the ball
on the Ram 45. Following 15 and
11 yard 'pass plays to Monette
and Langston, respectively, Lang-
ston caught a pass in the end
zone which was called back for
S holding. Two.plays later, Lang-
ston caught the ball in the end
zone to end the scoring in the
Rutherford set.
Russell Martin stopped the fi-
nal Ram drive when he intercept-
ed a Rutherford pass and re-
turned it for, a TD which was
nullified by a clip penalty, giving
the Sharks final possession of the
ball.
DOWN DOLPHINS 7-0
The Mosley Dolphins proved
to be a more formidable oppo-
nent, holding the Shark attack-
'Just outside the end zone for a
full quarter.


After playing a full 12 min-
utes without either team scoring,
the teams went into overtime. On
the first play in the extra period,
Ramsey found Monette in the left
corner of the end zone again for
the score. The shark defense,
which used the swarm tactic all
night long, stung the Dolphins
for four straight downs, holding
them for no gain on four downs.


Bobby Williams converted all
three of his extra point opportu-
nities of the evening.
Offensively, the Sharks were
11 for 14 passing, which was
good for 130 yards in the two
quarters. Langston had five and
Monette had six receptions. Nich-
olas Rolack rushed for 19 of the
Sharks 32 yards on the ground
and Pryor ran for six. Matt Taylor


had one punt for 49 yards.
The defensive unit was led
by Calvin Pryor, Willie Smith,
Terry Quinn, Ernest Gant, Rus-
sell Cherry, Roy Campbell, Dar-
rell Tull and Eric Langston. Rus-
sell Martin had an interception,
Tyrone Hamilton a fumble recov-
ery and Willlie Smith caused a
fumble. Roy Campbell had one
quarterback sack.

New Form of Fire Ant Colony Spreading Through Southeast


Fire ants have always been
' bad news, but the news just got
worse.
A new form of fire ant colony,
with thousands of queens, is
spreading throughout the South-
east.
"It means four times as many
ants and almost one solid ant
nest," said Phil Koehler, an ento-
mologist with the University of
Florida's Institute of Food and Ag-
ricultural Sciences (IFAS).
An IFAS-U.S. Department of
Agriculture study near Paddock
Mall in Ocala found 30 to 40 fire
ant mounds per acre back in the
days of single queens. Now, there
are 5,000 mounds per acre --
about every 5 feet -- with 200
queens per mound.
"When a queen dies in a sin-
gle-queen nest, the whole nest
dies," said Mike Glancy of the
USDA's Agricultural Research
Service in Gainesville.

"With multiple queen
mounds, they just scatter. The
workers do not have loyalty to a
single queen, and will accept any
queen. The more the merrier."
Multiple-queen fire ants live


in greater concentrations and are
more aggressive in hunting for
food than single-queen fire ants.,
They have been known to attack
sick people in hospital beds and
the nipples of nursing goats.


Queens from multiple queen
nests fly 8 to 10 miles on their
mating flights, compared to 1/2
mile for queens from single queen
nests.
'This is a more aggressive in-


sect, which means more human
contact, which means more
health problems," Glancy said.
Bill Becker, IFAS safety ex-
pert, says that about one person
a year dies of allergic reaction to
fire ant stings in Florida.
Fire ants also cause trouble
by eating. foam expansion joints
in highways and shorting out air
conditioners.
Multiple queen fire ants were
discovered in 1981 in Louisiana
and then were discovered in Oca-


la and Texas in 1983. Since then
multiple queen colonies have
spread throughout Florida and
are found all over the southeast-
ern United States.
Fire ants were accidentally
imported from Brazil and Argenti-
na in the 1920s and 1940s in the
ballast of ships.
Koehler said multiple queen
colonies are reported in Brazil,
too, and as man kills off single-
queen nests, it clears the way for
the multiple-queen nests of fire
ants to move in.

Offers An

Alternative

to Prison

Bill Koran, owner of the
Black's Island boys camp, Camp
Nautilus, told -the Rotary Club
last Thursday, he is attempting
to have his camp and others sim-
ilar to it throughout the state in-
cluded in the state program to re-
habilitate young boys on the way
to becoming hardened criminals.
Koran quoted figures to indi-
cate there is presently 1,600
youths : in detention : centers
throughout the state on any giv-
en day. He said the state handles
some 35,000 cases of wayward
youths each year, which is taking
a heavy toll on our youth and the
taxpayer.
He indicated the state is re-
ducing any one detention center
to holding young offender popula-
tions of no more than 100. He
said Dozier School for Boys in
Marianna would be one of these
schools. Dozier now handles
some 400 youths at a time in its
census. 'Those other boys must
go somewhere," Koran said.
What Koran is porposing is a
four month rehabilitation pro-
gram with Camp Nautilus as one
of many contractors enlisted to
take over the problem of reclaim-
ing the youth. 'There are present-
ly a lot of 12 to 15 year-olds in
adult prisons in the state simply
because there is no alternative
but to shut them up in a prison-
like atmosphere and let them sit
there during the term of their
sentence," he said.
The speaker pointed out the
prison sentences are manufactur-
ing criminals, rather than rescu-
ing useful citizens. 'You put a
farm boy from the panhandle in a
jail with a city boy from south
Florida and the farm boy doesn't
teach the city boy to milk a cow.
The city boy teaches the farm boy
how to steal a car," he pointed
out.
Koran revealed that Black's
Island has had a varied history
over the past few years. 'We had
eight dolphin there for training
recently, which are now in Cali-
fornia. We have had four Lemurs
released for study in order to try
and save them from extinction.
We have been a successful boys
camp for many years. Now, we
want to try to rehabilitate young
people."
Koran said Florida has the
second highest rate of juvenile
crime in the nation. "Maybe with
some programs such as we're
proposing for Black's Island we
can teach the proper values to
some of these kids rather than
have them turn into hardened
criminals in our prisons."
Guest of the club was Dr.
Rick Morley.

Heat Brings Insect Problems


By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
As summer approaches, the
preparation and care you've given
your vegetable garden will really
be put to the test. We say this be-
cause insect problems at this
time of year can be quite serious.
Summer in Florida, provides the'
heat and humidity on which in-
sects thrive. Without adequate
control, pests can destroy your
garden.
Very soon all the time and ef-
fort you've put into your garden
should begin to pay off in dell-
cious fresh vegetables. That is, if
you get to your crops before the


insects do. All the care you've giv-
en your vegetable garden up till
now will be meaningless if insects
are allowed to rob you of your
harvest. So in this article I will
talk about the most common and
bothersome bugs you may,find on
your vegetables. I'll offer some ad-
vice on their control. Mytinforma-
tion was provided by Extension
Entomologist Dr. Don Short, of
the universityy of Florida's Insti-
tute of Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences.
The insects you need to worry
about in the weeks ahead are di-
vided into two broad categories.
These which live and do their


Carter


damage above ground, and those
which live in the soil and bother
the roots and lower stems of vege-
tables. The most common above
ground pests include leaf miners,
army worms, spider mites, flea
beetles, and aphids. Cutworms
and mole crickets top the list of
below ground villains.
Leaf miners seem to cause
the greatest. damage. on tomato
and cucumber plants. They're
called leaf miners because they
burrow in between the transpar-
ent membranes on the topl and
bottom surfaces of the leaves as
they feed. They eat the living
plant tissue, leaving the mem-
branes, which then look like tiny
window panes.
The army worms you'll find in
your garden are the same as
those you're probably all, too fa-
miliar with in your lawn. They
feed on plant foliage and attack a
variety of crops.
Spider mites aren't really in-
sects. In fact, as the name sug-
gests, they're more closely related
to spiders. They're tiny pests usu-
ally no more than a fiftieth of an
inch long. They gather on the un-
dersides of plant leaves and feed
by piercing the leaves with their
needle-like mouthparts and succk-
ing out the plant juices. Because
they're so small, you may not no-
tice them until they start to cause
severe damage.
Aphids, sometimes called
plant,.iUce, also cause damage by
piercing leaf tissue and sucking
out plant juices. Flea beetles are
chewing insects. which cause
damage by chewing small holes
in vegetable leaves.
All this may sound discourag-
ing but, fortunately, it's actually
fairly easy and inexpensive to


control above ground pests that
threaten vegetables. Your garden
center should have a number of
insecticide sprays to kill foliage
feeding bugs.
The insects which live in the
soil are a -different matter, be-
cause it's hard to reach them
with sprays. Cutworms simply
cut your vegetable plants off. at
the soil surface. Mole crickets
tunnel through the soil in the
root zone feeding on the roots and
disturbing the surrounding earth.
Insects in this category are best
controlled with insecticide .baits,
which are also available at garden
centers.
One thing we don't want to do
is encourage you to use pesti-
cides if you really don't need to.
While a preventative spray pro-
gram might be essential in a large
scale commercial operation, you
can usually deal with insects in
the backyard garden on an "as
needed" basis.

Tanya Sasser

Represents Gulf

at ASWC Meeting

The Florida Association of
Soil and Water Conversation Dis-
tricts held their Area I and II
meeting in Chipley on May 11.
The meeting included a public
speaking contest on the subject
"Conservation, the Future of
America's Agriculture". Each of
the Districts of the Panhandle of
Florida were invited to send a
representative from their districts
to the contest. The contest was
open to students in grades six
through 12. Tanya Sasser of Port
St. Joe Jr.-Sr. High School repre-
sented the Tupelo Soil and Water
Conservation District covering all
of Gulf County. She took fourth
place in the Area II contest which
includes all counties from Jack-
son to Gulf counties east to Jef-
ferson county. The winners from
the Area I and II contest go on to
compete in the State Contest this
fall.
Hugh Seames, chairman of
the Tupelo Soil and Water Con-
servation District, represented
the District at this meeting.
