TED's Don't Work!
Local shrimpers say a requirement
that they use the controversial turtle
excluder advice will not save sea turtles
from extinction and will have the effect
of virtually putting them out of the
Edward [Buddy] Wood, told The Star
this week the devices are now required
on every practically every boat which
drags for shrimp in Florida's waters.
The only exceptions are those boats
which operate in enclosed bays, such as
St. Joseph Bay, with boats of 25 feet in
length and less. "This requirement by
the state of Florida is putting us out of.
the shrimping business, locally," Wood
Wood and his family have operated
a wholesale shrimp business here in
Port St. Joe on the Gulf County Canal
for many years and are not novices to
what will work and what will not work
in the shrimping business. "These TEDs
will not save turtles and they will not al-
low the shrimper to catch shrimp,"
At the present time the shrimp are
running close to shore. 'We have tried
dragging 10 1/2 miles out, in waters
controlled by federal rules and regula-
tions, and there are no shrimp there to
catch at this time," Wood pointed out.
Federal rules and regulations are
different from Florida requirements.
Federal regulations will allow shrimping
in federal waters, without the TEDs,
linmting drags to 105 minutes to avoid
drowning turtles which may become
caught in the nets. Only Florida re-
quires TEDs at this time.
'That alone should prove to people
that TEDs are either useless or suspect-
ed of being so. Only Florida requires
-their use and other regulators of salt
water fishing have not approved their
use even though they have been under
pressure from environmentalists to do
so," Woods said. "If they were the an-
swer to protecting turtles and allowing
the shrimper to operate, everyone would
be requiring their use."

The main gripe the shrimpers have
with the TEDs isn't that they reduce the
shrimp catch by five or ten percent. "In
these waters, they reduce the shrimp
catch to zero," Wood said. "Seagrasses

As far as the need for any turtle ex-

shrimp house, who have operated
shrimp boats for as much as 10 years
and have never caught a turtle in a net.

Nelson Is First Up On Gulfs Political
City Is "Going
Take Lead In Making Personal
Visit to Florida Power Brass
Port St. Joe will officially go
after the proposed Florida Power
Corporation power generating
plant which will be built on the
firm's system prior to 1997.
Mayor Frank Pate remarked
Tuesday night, at the City Com-
mission meeting, "Florida Power
promised Gulf County 12 years
ago that their next generating
plant would be built here and we
need to officially remind them of
that promise and make a promise
of our own to help them in any
way we can."
The Mayor and the City Com-
mission concurred that the thing
for the City to do is to make per-
sonal contact with the top brass
of Florida Power and express the
interest of the city and the
county in having the plant built at
a site proposed 12 years ago near
White City on the bank of the
Gulf County Canal.
'We need to get together a
delegation from both cities in the
county, the county commission,
the chambers of commerce and
make a trip to St. Petersburg to
meet with the top officers of Flori-
da Power and promote our
county," the Mayor said.
Attorney William J. Rish ad-
vised the Commission, "If you
want it, you need to go after it
and let them know you want it."
Commissioners Bill Fleming,
James Roberts and Edwin Wil-
liams were the only other com-
missioners present at the meet-
ing Tuesday night, but they con-
curred with the thinking of Mayor
Pate and offered to be a part of
the personal contact and pledged
to make themselves available for
the purpose of selling Gulf
County to Florida Power.
In effect, the Commission is
going to spearhead a drive to
turn the power on to Florida Pow-
er to secure their new power
In addition to the decision to
actively pursue the plant through
personal contact, the Commis-
sion also agreed to extend an in-
vitation to Florida Power execu-
tives to visit Gulf County and see
the proposed site first hand. The
Board also drew up a resolution
to the utility, expressing full sup-
port for the project in any way

PAGE TWO THURSDAY, AUGUST 17,1989
Put us on the side of the many who have voluntarily ex-
pressed to us an objection to the county removing the solid waste
collection trailers from throughout the county.
These trailers are too handy and provide one of the most effec-
tive methods our county has seen to combat trashing up our
woodlands, lonely roads and deserted clear spots with trash and
waste of all sorts. At one time, if a spot was clear and could be ac-.
cessed by a pick-up truck, it had a heaping pile of solid waste
cluttering up the scenery. The installation of the waste collection
trailers has eliminated that problem to a great extent.
We feel for the County Commission and their attempts to re-
duce tax expenditures. We want them to continue in this manner
and accomplish more and more of what they set out to do in this
endeavor. We don't agree that removing the solid waste collection
trailers at this time is the answer.
And, neither do a good many other tax payers. All of these tax
payers expect the Commission to use prudence when they spend
our tax dollars, but they don't want to see our county trashed
again, either. In some cases, those opposing the removal of the
trailers face the possibility of having their property become an un-
We don't think dumping indiscriminately removes the respon-
sibility from the County Commission so far as DER is concerned,
for the proper disposal of our solid waste in an acceptable man-
ner. We think the Commission will still be responsible for seeing
that waste is handled by state guidelines. The only problem is,
that with removal of the trailers, there will be a necessity to go all
over the county and pick it up off the ground and haul it to their
The only way the Commission can safely remove the trailers,
in our opinion, is to make use of private, or preferably public, col-
lection services to pick up solid waste throughout the county, a
mandatory activity. If folks must use the service and pay for it,
they will use it. If it is voluntary, you can forget them using it.
We think DER will hold the Commission more responsible for
allowing the countryside to become trashed because they have
not provided a handy receptical to place waste in than they will

Pulling in the collection trailers and expecting people to han-
dle their solid waste properly is a twin brother to an ostrich hid-

Living On Credit
Well, our government has taken the first step to pay off the
$20 billions of red ink incurred by shoddily run savings and loan
banks throughout the nation. Or rather, it has taken the first
step to allow you and you and you to pay their debts.
Last week, President Bush signed the bill, which has its good
and its bad sides. The good is that it will keep many trusting peo-
ple from losing the money they invested in these S&Ls. The bad is
that those greedy operators who lined the pockets of themselves
and their friends at the expense of their S&L will get off scot free
of any responsibility in theirlrriesponsibility.
Another bad thing about the whole situation is that solidly
and soundly operated S&Ls, such as the one here in Port St. Joe
must live with the stigma these few greedy operators have foisted
The S&L situation isn't fair, any way you look at it. According
to the news releases we read, every person in the United States is
going to be faced with the responsibility of paying $1600 to keep
these guys from having to go to jail, or worse.
We have always resisted putting the few dollars we have man-
aged to save in one of those institutions which make all those big
development loans. We don't know beans about financial matters;
what investments will make money and which ones won't; but it
doesn't take a financial wizard to see when someone is tossing
his, or someone else's money into a hole from which it can't be re-
In our way of looking at it, This situation, plus the $5 billion
loan the federal government made to ball out the first installment
of this mighty bill, hiking our national debt, is one of the things
which caused the S&L failures in the first place: spending money
they didn't have. Now, we're paying off those debts with money we

A POET ONCE SAID, It takes
a lot of living to make a home.
That's true. It also takes a lot
of time, work and regular chores
to keep a home functioning, too.
If a home is occupied by only
one person, I can't see how that
one person can ever keep up with
all that must be done to keep the
home functioning. It's definitely a
two man job and even then it
takes a .lot of time to do every-
thing which must be done to keep
everything running smooth.
Down here at The Star's print-
ing plant, it takes the efforts of all
of us to keep everything in place,
and running properly. If it isn't a
sink to un-stop, it's a floor to
mop, an air conditioner filter to
change, the coffee pot to clean
out, the refrigerator to wipe off,
the commode to clean, light bulbs
to change, trash to carry out, new
stock to put up, etc. There is no

As I get nearer to the accepted re-

and more why people will sell an

apartment or a smaller home. It
cuts the chores down to size.

Carol's house for supper, cleaned
out the bath tub, straightened up
the mess in the laundry room
and put away my clean under-
wear which had been washed but
was still lying on the couch, wait-
ing to be folded up.
That's too much for one per-
son to do after he or she gets

morning, I had to go to the gro-

simple thing, but it takes time.
By the time you magnify this sim-
ple chore by 10 or 12, you have
dug into a day pretty deep.
After working a dog feeding
into this cramped schedule, Ra-

she left her food bowl alone. I
guess that dog food didn't taste
the same with me putting it out.
Rachel pesters me for drinks
of water. If she wants to go out,
she comes to me to let her out.
She'll wait until Frenchie puts
out the cat food, then come
bounding up to me to be let out.
She acts, at these times, like her
need is drastic, so I let her out.
I was reading the paper and
didn't see Frenchie go out the
door with cat food. All Rachel
wanted was to get outside and eat
the cat food!

things which needed to be taken

to come to a complete halt.
There was a trip to the gar-
bage collection center in our
neighborhood, with trash which
had collected and shouldn't go
into the garbage. The cat food trip
to the grocery store didn't fill the
needs of the day for everything. I
had to go back again.

the label said.
So, the meal preparation
chore wasn't bad at all. One
meal, I dined on a Pepsi-Cola and

things when she is home. I have

A Story For Kids
(Odie the Dog)
Hi there! My name is Odie. I'm a dog. A boy dog. What's your
I live on Marvin Avenue in Port St. Joe. I haven't always lived
there, though. Not too long ago I lived at a house in Dalkeith with a
family who lived there.
Want to know why I don't live there anymore? Well, the reason
is the people I lived with moved off and left me there, all by myself.
Yes they did and at first I didn't know what was going on be-
cause they didn't tell me, but I knew something was happening be-
cause they loaded up all their furniture and stuff and left in the
middle of the night. I never thought they would leave me all alone,
with nothing to eat or drink, but they did.
And, know what else? I stayed there a long time waiting for
them to come back and get me because I loved them, but they never
did come back for me. I waited and waited and I got awfully hungry
and thirsty and the fleas were so bad I almost scratched myself to
death. And I waited and waited, but no one came back for me.
Want to know what happened? Well, one day, after they had
been gone for a long time, a man came by in a truck to do some-
thing to the house and yard. At first I thought he was the people
who left me and were coming back to get me, but he wasn't. Any-
way, this man came that day and sprayed something in the house
and yard. I don't know what it was, but the fleas didn't bother me
as bad after he left.
When he started to leave, he came over to me and patted me on
the head. I wanted to lick him but I was afraid he might hit me. If
he had hit me I couldn't run because I was too weak from not hav-
ing any food.
He didn't hit me though. He just patted me on the head and
said, "Good doggie, good doggie," and then he got in his truck and
drove away. But, you know what? The next day, as I was laying in
the grass wishing I had something to eat, this same man pulled up
in his truck and this time he had a woman and two children with
When they got out of the truck, they came right to where I was
and the boy and girl rubbed my head and talked real nice to me. I
wanted to lick them and show them how much I loved them but I
was too weak to raise my head. All I had to eat since the other peo-
ple left me was two grasshoppers and a toad frog.
Then, you know what they did? They picked me up and put me
in the back of their truck and took me to their house. When we got
there, they gave me a big bowl of dog food and plenty of clean water
to drink. It was so good that I wagged my tail for three days. They
even had a dog house for me to sleep in.
The next day, when I was strong enough, I played with the boy
and girl all day long. I would run and "fetch" sticks for them and sit
real still when they said "stay!". We had such a good time!
I was so happy because they took me to the vet and he helped
make me all well and they gave me a bath and all the fleas left. Now
I'm such a happy doggie because these nice people brought me
home with them.
But now the people I live with are moving and I'm scared again.
I hope they won't move off and leave me or give me to the dog-
catcher. I don't want to be hungry again and I've heard what hap-
pens to dogs who go off with the dog-catcher, they don't ever come
Will some little boy or girl please get their mommy or daddy to
read this to them and get them to come and get me? I promise to be
a good doggie and play with you, all day long if you want me to.
And, guess what else? I'm even house-trained. I like to stay outside,
.but if I ever come inside I won't mess up the house...I promised

No Feelings for a Pet?
Saturday night somewhere
between the hours of 10:30 p.m.
and 11:00 p.m., our pet poodle
went outside and was run over by
someone in his own yard. It is
really very hard for us to believe
that someone could possibly have
no more feelings for an animal
than to just run over him without
any thought as to what they did
to the family that loved and took
care of him, then we wonder what
that person would do to a child
that might be inside their yard.
Maybe if they would have just
had the decency to have called us
or stopped we might even have
saved the life of an animal that
we really loved and had never

manager of Raffield Fisheries here in
Port St. Joe, says the lowly mullet is
coming in for its share of attention from
'We have been notified we can't fish
for mullet in the Panhandle waters
with nets of less than 3 1/2 inch mesh
and can keep only those fish which are
at least 11 inches long.
The mullet, considered a trash fish
in most parts of the United States, are
the backbone of fish fries here in north-
west Florida and considered a delicacy
by coastal residents who have access to
the fresh caught fish.
Raffield says it is too early to tell
how the new requirement will affect his
business. 'The real season isn't here
yet, but I can see where it could reduce
our catch by 20 to 25 percent."
Sportsmen, using cast nets, would
be limited to a daily catch of 50 fish un-

Flowers had made appearanc-

here in Port St. Joe, saying he
was just trying to provide launch
facilities into the Bay. He said
that if needs and demands called
for a full-blown marina project at
some time in the future, he would
consider the venture at that time.
His request for dredging was
to re-open an existing channel
into the sheltered cove at the par-

Remember the flood in New

own money and urging America
to help. Eight days after an earth-
quake rocked Managua, Nicara-
gua, Will was there, again, giving
his money and time, and asking
the world for help. During the

sought relief for them. He chided
the leaders to action. ".... the

else fixed up O.K." On the
inauguration of Franklin D.
Roosevelt, Will urged the whole
country to support him. The
nation wants action. "If he
burned down the capitol, we
would cheer and say, Well, we at
least got a fire started, anyhow.'"

We will never see his likes

A method of locating cancer
cells has been so successful that
clinicians may use the same tech-
nique for "seek and destroy" mis-
sions within a year. When inject-
ed into patients, radiolabelled
monoclonal antibodies attach
themselves to specific cancer
cells, revealing their presence on
a nuclear scan. Soon these same
antibodies may be used routinely
to carry anti-cancer drugs direct-
ly to cancer cells.
"I believe that radiolabelled
monoclonal antibodies are the
magic bullet we have dreamed
about," says Jon A. Kotler, M.D.,
a nuclear medicine specialist at
Cleveland Clinic Florida. "They
have already proven their value in
helping us find cancer hidden
deep within the body. By using
stronger labels, we can alter the
monoclonal antibodies to actually
destroy cancer cells after they lo-
The techniques of labelling
monoclonal antibodies with nu-
clear Isotopes has been perfected
over the past eight years. To date,
the antibodies have been tried on
a variety of cancers, including
melanoma, liver, ovarian, pros-
tate and colon.
"Cancers can be defined by
specific, unique antigens on their
surface," says Dr. Kotler. 'We
know how to make monoclonal
antibodies to target these anti-
gens and how to produce them
infinitely in large numbers.
'We have made the first step
in turning this diagnostic tech-
nique into a therapeutic one. Ear-
ly results are very exciting. It ap-
pears to be safe, effective and will
enable us to perform treatments
on an outpatient basis.

is within our grasp."

Denise Tanner of White City. The accident hap-

who was travelling south on 98, had stopped to

Did the sky fall on the dino-

Earth's plumbing overflow?
Challenging the current pop-
ular theory that a meteorite
struck the planet and felled the
prehistoric giants, researchers at
Florida State University have de-
vised a theory that uses a mecha-
nism within the Earth to explain
how the dinosaurs met sudden
Dr. David Loper, a professor
of mathematics and research as-
sociate with the Geophysical
Fluid Dynamics Institute at FSU,
says that a "blob" of molten rock,
rising from deep in the Earth to
erupt through the crust, could
have caused the mass extinctions
evidenced in geologic findings.
Most scientists agree, Loper
said, that during a span of sever-
al million years both before and
after the dinosaurs' sudden dis-
appearance, the Earth experi-
enced cataclysmic changes: vol-
canism, a rapid drop in sea level
and mass species extinctions.
'They also agree that some-
thing sudden and worldwide hap-
pened 65 million years ago," the
geophysicist said. 'There's evi-
dence of a very distinct layer in
the rocks, which has unusual
properties, all over the world."
But scientists don't agree on
just what happened to create that
layer, which has been dated to
the time of the dinosaurs' disap-
pearance. 'The trouble is nobody
has a theory that explains every-
thing," Loper said.
The 1979 discovery of iridium
- a rare element on Earth, but
common in meteorites in the

pact theory that a meteorite hit
But Loper and other scien-
tists argue that a single impact
does not.account for the cataclys-
mic changes that occurred before
the debated sudden event. He
and his research partner, Dr. Ke-
vin McCartney, a former FSU
graduate student now at the Uni-
versity of Maine, think the lowest

that part of the planet between
the crust and the core, could be
The portion of the mantle
closest to the hot core becomes
less dense than the rest of the
mantle, melting like the bottom of
a block of butter on a hot frying
pan. Loper and McCartney sug-
gest that molten rock, or magma,
from this layer rises toward the
surface through the mantle's
Experiments designed by Dr.
George Buzyna, a FSU associate
professor of mechanical engineer-
ing and research associate at the
Geophysical Fluid Dynamics In-
stitute, demonstrated how the
layer could bunch up to form
blobs of molten rock. The blobs,
called diapirs, could follow the
pre-existing path, or plume, of

the surface as volcanism, Loper
Loper theorizes that a diapir
not connected with a pre-existing
plume grows very large as it rises
at a slower rate over millions of
years. When it finally erupts
through the Earth's crust, it
causes widespread above-ground
disturbances. Such a phenome-
non, he said, could explain much
of the evidence scientists have
found about the time period, in-
cluding reversals of the Earth's
magnetic field, volcanism and the
rapid regression of the seas.
'The sea level fall itself could
explain a lot of extinctions," Loper
said. "Many marine animals live
on the continental shelf, and
when your home dries up, you're
in big trouble."
Although volcanoes that origi-
nate closer to the Earth's surface
show little or no signs of iridium,

Raffield Fisheries Spotter Plane
Crashes In Apalachicola Bay
Veteran pilot Nevin Stewart crashed Raffield Fisheries' Cessna 172 spotter plane into Apalachi-
cola Bay August 3. "I had just made my last pass over the fishing boat. I was trimmed out at 50
feet above the water doing about 100 knots, and all of a sudden I was in the water."
"I was thrown through the plane's windshield and then the plane bellied over and sunk within
seconds." It took about 50 stitches to sew up Stewart's hand, leg and mouth, but he sustained no'
"I've been debriefed by the FAA and the National Transportation Safety Board and I still don't
know what went wrong. It was clear and the weather was good. I just couldn't believe it when I hit
A veteran pilot of 24 years, he believes that the crash was caused by either a downdraft from
the beach or a downdraft from a pair of fighter jets which had just flown over him.
The plane sank in 21 feet of water, about one mile west of Bob Sikes Cut and about one mile
offshore. The plane,was salvaged by Guthrie's Marine Construction of Carrabelle and taken to Port
St. Joe. The plane, valued at $20,000 according to Stewart, was a complete loss.
'"The only reason we salvaged it was because we do a lot of net fishing in these waters and we
don't need any more debris on the bottom."
'There's one thing I can tell you, I'll never forget the sound that plane made when it crashed."
A Fish Story
... Lady Lands
GOLDEN Large Mouth Bass
When Mattie Louise Anderson
told her friends about the fish she
caught in Lake Hatchineha, they
thought she wap delirious. When
she called the Florida.Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission,
biologists suspected she might be
some sort of prankster.
When Mattie's friends saw the
largemouth 'bass, they couldn't
believe it. When Commission fish-
eries biologist Ken Denson saw it,
he couldn't believe it either, but
there it was. .gold, just like she
'Mattle Louise had caught a
golden'black bass, one as gold as
any goldfish in any tank. But, ac-
cording to Denson, gold is just an
inadequate descriptive term when
describing any goldfish.
"Goldfish aren't really gold
but rather a bright orange," Den-
son.said. "That's exactly the color
of this bass, bright orange."
He said the very unusual col-
oration in this bass is due to a
simple biological phenomenon. Its
occurrence, on the other hand,
especially in largemouth bass, is
Most fish are born with three
types of specialized color pigment
producing cells that give them
their unique color. These three
types. of cells are melanophores,
xanthophores and erythrophores.
When bass possesses all three,
you" catch a bass that looks like a
bass. But when a genetic muta-
tion occurs involving these pig-
ment cells, you catch a bass of a.
'The absence of melano-
phores and erythrophores and
the presence of xanthophores,
will cause, as in this case, a bass
to be orange," Denson said. 'This
particular genetic mutation is re-
ferred to as 'xanthicism'."
The improbability of a fisher-
man ever catching or even seeing
a xanthic bass is astronomical -
even if the fisherman goes fishing'
every day for' centuries. Only a
few biologists with the' Commis-
sion can even claim to have ever
seen one, much less ever handled
one. In fact, the Commission pro-
duces millions of bass every year
at its Richloam Hatchery and sci-
entists there have yet to observe a
single xanthic bass among the
Although the likelihood of
ever seeing an orange bass is re-
mote, at best, catching a 2 1/2
q pound adult xanthic bass is even
more amazing, Denson said.
"Bright orange is not a good
color for a fish trying to live in a
world where survival depends on
camouflage and large numbers,"
Denson said. "An orange bass
certainly can't blend in with its
surroundings, and no matter how
many fingerling bass are in a
school, it's the orange one that
predators notice first.
"Even when they get too big to
be eaten by other fish, they still
stand out to larger predators like
eagles, otters and ospreys," Den-
son said. 'They just don't have
much of a chance."
As improbable as it is for a
xanthic bass to reach harvestable
size, it's. even more improbable
that a fisherman will hook and
According to Mattie, she had
seen the "gold fish" on an earlier
fishing excursion as it swam by
with a school of other bass.
Despite her surprise at the
catch, Mattie had planned to re-
lease her prize but the hook was-
too deeply imbedded in its stom-
ach for it to survive. Rather than
release such an unusual and
mortally wounded fish, she decid-
ed to have the "golden bass"
"Besides, who would believe a
fish story like this without proof?"
So, what bait does one choose
to go after a "golden bass?" Ac-
cording to the only one known to
