Injured Turtle Captured;
Gets Care for Wounds
Sandy Sterba of Big Bend Wildlife and
Pallas Gandy, local member of the St. Jo-
seph's Chelonidae Commission are shown
above, examining the injured loggerhead sea
turtle which caused concern among environ-
mentalists for the past two weeks.
The turtle was seen scavenging bits of
fish bait off fishing lines near the Mexico
-Beach pler recently,anid appeared to hav l a
severed flipper and damage to its shell.
After a two week effort at capturing the
turtle to give it treatment, a unified effort by
Gandy, Sterba and the Raffield Fisheries of
Port St. Joe, it was snagged by the fishermen
and brought in for examination and treat-
ment, Wednesday night of last week.
In the photo shown above, the turtle is
shown lying on its back, so it will be easier
for those interested in determining its inju-
ries to do so without danger from the turtle's
The turtle was found to be a female ani-
mal. Its severed flipper had been missing for
some time and had already healed. It was,
however, suffering, from several wounds from
fish hooks around its head and front flipper,
where it had snagged itself removing bait
from fishing lines. -.
-The tu~i:e was properly packed;et
down and transported to Gulf World in Pan-
ama City, where veterinarians began treating
the hook wounds and doctoring for parasites
and anemia. After the turtle is fully recov-
ered, it will be released again back in the
The female turtle weighed approximately
150 pounds and had a shell length of 31 1/4
inches with a width of 28 1/2 inches. Her
right front flipper was missing, but she had
managed to survive without the appendage.
Nathan Peters, Jr., became
the first black man in Gulf
County history to become chair-
man of the County Commission
Tuesday, when he received the
unanimous vote of his fellow
Commissioners for the post,
which he will hold for a year, be-
,ginning with the first Commis-
i sion meeting in October.
Presiding chairman, Doug
Birmingham is completing an un-
precedented two years at the
,helm of the Commission. He was
're-elected to the post last year for
his second term. It was an unu-
sual situation last year, with
three new Commission members
coming on the board and Peters
the only hold-over with only two
year's experience at the post.
Peters is beginning his final
year of his first term as a Gulf
County Commission, represent-
ing District Four.
Jim Gortman made the mo-
tion. to select Peters for his new
post and Commissioner Don
Parker seconded the motion.
There were no other nominations.
Gortman was then nominated
for the vice chairman's slot by Pe-
ters, who failed to get a second
on his motion.
Parker then nominated Ed
Creamer for the vice-chairman
post and his nomination was sec-
onded by Gortman. Creamer was
elected with no opposition.
A marathon bickering session
between Commissioner Ed
Creamer and Sheriff A] Harrison"
. went into still another session at
Tuesday morning's meetings, af-
ter a routine report by adminis-
trative assistant Larry Wells.
.Wells had merely reported
that the Board needed to formally
approve a request to allow a
beeper antenna to remain on the
radio tower which serves most of
'the county operation.
Sheriff Al Harrison advised
the Board that he should be con-
sulted on the matter, since all of
his communications are on the
tower and that installations in
the wrong place on the tower can
interfere with his or other broad-
casts. Harrison said he had been
conferred with in the past before
antennas were placed on the tow-
er, but he hadn't in this instance.
Creamer took exception with
Harrison's statement, bristling
with 'That's Gulf County's tower,
not the Sheriffs tower!"
It took a while for both tem-
pers to stop sparking and the
Sheriff to make his reasoning un-

Comprehensive Plan Nearing
Completion; Hearings Set
Gulf County's Comprehensive Plan is nearing completion
and the County Commission is beginning to schedule neces-
sary public hearings which must be held before the state-
mandated plan can be adopted.
Actually, the commission does not have the power to adopt
whatever comes out of the months already spent drafting the
plan or the final input from citizens attending the mandatory
public hearings. The document version agreed upon at the
hearings must be sent to the Florida Department of Affairs for
approval before becoming law.
The comprehensive plan covers almost every phase of
county development, including a land use plan which will de-
termine what areas of the county can be developed and how
much. Population density figures are also determined in the
plan, for every portion of Gulf County.
The comprehensive plan was mandated of all Florida
counties three years ago. Gulf county's.plan is currently reach-
ing the end of its second phase.
Public hearings on the plan will be held on October 24,
when the public will be allowed one hour, between 6:00 and
7:00 for any input to the nearly 700 page document.
On November 28, another public hearing will be held, as
the Board transmits its plan to the Florida Department of Com-
munity Affairs for acceptance or rejection.
In the meantime, the County Planning Committee will meet
for final input on October 10 and will then place a draft of the
document on file in the Courthouse on October 11, for the pub-
lic to study prior to the October 24 hearing.

Pile driver hammers away at new supports. .
A Gulf County pile driver started driving pilings to re-
place the Butler Road bridge this week.
The County recently agreed to replace the bridge after
the State Department of Transportation condemned it as
being unsafe. The present bridge was badly damaged by
hurricane 'Kate' but was repaired and made passable by
the county. The State inspectors now say it is unsafe to
The old bridge is being removed as new sections of the
new span are put in place.
Gulf County Road Superintendent, Bob Lester, has esti-
mated the replacement job will take about six weeks to
complete. In the meantime, Butler's Restaurant, which de-
pends on the bridge for access, has been closed down until
the bridge work is complete.
n Hwy. 98
A car and truck were involved
in a crash Thursday at 12:45, at
the intersection of Highway 98
and Third Street.
According to Chief of Police,
Carl Richter, there were no inju-
ries involved, even though one of
the parties involved had recently
undergone surgery and was tak-
en to the hospital for an exami-
nation as a precaution. She was
examined and released.
According to the accident re-
port, a truck, owned by White's
Wrecker Service of Panama City,
and driven by Clifford Kilpatrick
of Panama City, was travelling
east on Third Street at the inter-
section, and turned into Highway
98, into the path of a second ve-
hicle, driven by Ludie Boykins
Gastion of 154 Avenue B.
The truck struck the front of
the Gastion auto, causing some
$2,000 to both vehicles.
Mrs. Gastion was taken to
the hospital, examined and re-
Kilpatrick was charged with
violation of right of way in the ac-
cident, which was investigated by
Patrolman Tim Hightower.
It Was the Time and Place to Air Complaints
Taxing Bodies Draw No Objections
The Gulf County School Board and
the County Commission both failed to-
draw any objections to their proposed
budgets at hearings designed to allow a
forum for those who felt they had com-
plaints, during the past week.
The hearings were based on TRIM-
notices, which were sent out the middle
of August, outlining the proposed tax
levy on properties, giving the tax payer
advance notice of what to expect when
the tax bills are mailed out in Novem-
ber. The hearings are designed to allow
complaints to be filed.
Both the School Board and County
Commission have given approval to
their budgets which reflect a slight
shaving of mill rates, but increases in
dollars received, because of adjusted
property values during the past year.
Neither hearing drew any objections
from the public, allowing both boards to
adopt their proposed budgets as pub-
lished on the notices.
The City of Port St. Joe is yet to con-
duct their hearing, based on TRIM no-
tice figures. This hearing is scheduled
for Tuesday, September 19 at 7:00 p.m.
The City of Port St. Joe has also
hiked its expected tax income, but has
slightly lowered its millage rate.
A widespread valuation adjustment
over the county had resulted in many
questions being asked, but no official
complaints have been filed in regard to
tax levies or assessments.
One visitor appeared at the County
Commission hearing, but his complaint
was a misunderstanding.

PAGE TWO THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 14, 1989
If you read the front page of the Tallahassee Democrat re-
cently, you saw one of the reasons why we advocate Gulf
County getting into the garbage collection business and why we
advocate making subscription to the service, mandatory.
On the front page of the Democrat, there was an elderly
Gadsden County black lady, holding a small bag of garbage,
saying it was 25 days worth of garbage for her. She was being
required by Waste Management to subscribe to their contract
collection service, expected to pay $10.63 per month to collect
her meager amount of garbage.
It was evident the elderly black lady lived out in the country
and she didn't have an extra $10.63 to pay someone to haul off
her small grocery bag full of garbage each month.
Now why do we advocate the county getting into the collec-
tion business as opposed to hiring a private contractor?
In the first place, in the case of people like the little old lady
in Gadsden County, a county service could make concessions
in such cases, even to the point of collecting It free. A private
contractor, however, will go to every door. They get paid by the
Secondly, Waste Management is an efficient firm that
knows what it is doing in the garbage collection business. On
the other hand, they are one of the most expensive firms to
deal with. You can bet your discarded coffee grounds that If
they charge $10.63 to collect garbage, that $10.63 is a sufficient
amount of money to charge for the service and still show a nice
profit on the ledger for their stockholders.
What we're trying to say is that If Waste Management is
charging a certain figure, that figure is plenty ample to pay col-
lection costs and keep Waste Management's bottom line well in
We contend the county can provide the same service, after
purchasing the equipment to do it, for considerably less money
and provide a sounding board for folks like the little old black
lady who lives out in the country in Gadsden County. If there
are circumstances which make the service unnecessary or a
definite hardship, there is a responsible public service to react
to that need, not some corporate head worried about a ledger
Don't You Believe It
As bad as the drug scene is, there is an effect on our nation
and our, world which could be considered worse than the physi-
cal and mental wreck the evil traffic is making of millions of our
While we have some of the same problem we're talking
about here in these United States, the pitiful nation of Colom-
bia has shown the world the really bad side of the drug busi-
ness in recent weeks.
This nation, which we're sure didn't choose to be the drug
center of the Americas, has all but been torn apart by those
heading up this sordid business. In a sense, the drug lords
have caused more public damage in Colombia than the civil
war has in Honduras.
In Colombia,,,there have been presidential candidates assas-
sinated, public officials murdered, newspapers bombed, candi-
dates for office threatened and the entire nation held at ransom
by those who peddle drugs all over the western hemisphere.
In our own nation, public officials have been taken in by the
drug operators, people murdered, lives wrecked and the health
of a generation threatened.
We write it all off by placating ourselves with the thought
that, well that's all happening down in Colombia. They've been
murdering public officials there for years. Threats to their elect-
ed servants are nothing new. Blowing up their newspapers has
been an extra-curricular activity down there ever since there
have been newspapers.
That may all be true, but it was only during revolutions that
all this happened, so can't we reasonably suspect the drug car-
tels are in a revolution with the government of Colombia?
What if they win?
What's going to happen when they advise President Bush to
"shut up about drugs unless you want to be killed!" An outra-
geous supposition? Don't you believe it.
The skirmish has already started in the United States. Un-
less we get serious about defeating the drug business, we could
be the next Colombia.
IHunker Down with Kes
A New Look At Gene Woodling
It was a good two, and more
like three miles from the house to
Pat Houston's Grocery Store,
Meat Market and Service Station.
If we had a spare nickel, we'd
walk it no, we'd more like fly -
we couldn't wait to swap our 5t
for a pack of baseball cards.
There were two major bubble
gum companies in the card busi-
ness in the early 1950's and they
were Topps and Bowman. Pat
Houston had the good sense to
carry both cards.
Of course, we got the best of
Mr. Pat everytime. We gave him a
nickel he gave us Willie Mays,
Mickey Mantle, Stan Musial,

and who could forget the 1953
Topps card of Leroy "Satchel"
Paige in a St. Louis Brown's uni-
form. Yes sir, I figure we took Mr.
Pat everytime. We didn't "tak'im"
as often as we wanted to 'cause,
as you will remember, nickels in
1953 were in short supply.
We made an art out of open-
ing a pack of cards. We'd peel
back the wrapper, plop the gum
in our mouths and check out the
first card. Vic Raschi. Not a bad
first card, not a great one either.
Raschi was a work horse of a
pitcher for the New York Yankees.
I didn't like the Yankees and I
didn't like Raschi but Jimmy
Childress was a Yankee fanatic. I
had a card I could trade. This
was going to be a so so pack. You

Then, if any of us had another

ll That Science And I Ate Steak, Too
AIN'T SCIENCE wonderful?
That phrase is related to saying,
"What'll they think of next?"
It's almost miraculous what
science can do for us today.
Some of these innovations come
from the space age. Others don't.
Some come from wartime devel-
opments and a few from peace-
time research and development.
It's most unusual when new
things pop up during peacetime,
for apparently no desperate rea-
son. It usually takes a war to
spur developments along so our
side can survive or so we can de-
stroy the enemy more efficiently.
The most prolific peacetime
developer of new techniques and
new discoveries has been our
own national space program. We
have all read of how the program
has spurred the computer devel-
opment by leaps and bounds, re-
sulting in the microchip, which is
now the basis of most sophisti-
cated electronics. Then there is
the development of the more
mundane teflon, which allows
you to fry an egg in a frying pan

Talk about innovations!
All of these new space tech-
nologies went into the now mirac-
ulous' space probe Voyager II
which showed us views of far
away planets we had never seen
All of this started because we
wanted to develop a rocket which
would shoot half way around the
world and destroy everything and
everybody wherever it fell.
ONE OF THE last develop-
ments to come out of World War
II was sonar. In later years it has
been developed and improved un-
til now it is the main tool for
searching the ocean floor for
ships and other items which have
been sunk for even centuries. Sot'
nar allows mankind to scan the
ocean floors without actually go-
ing down there and walking
Last week, Frenchie and I
went to Birmingham, Alabama,;tq
the University of Alabama hospiW
tal to use some of that World War
II sonar-which has since been
improved and harnessed for pur-'
poses other than tracing prowling
submarines-in getting rid of a
gallstone which has plagued
Frenchie for four years.
Now, that statement sounds
simple for such a complicated
maneuver, and actually, it was
This sonar, aimed at Fren-
chie's gall bladder, picked that
stone out of the space of her in-
nards and focused it in on a
small screen, much like a televi-
sion screen. Dr. Anderson then
revved up that sonar and for
nearly an hour, it bombarded the
gallstone with sound hammers
until it smashed it to smithe-
I know it did, because I was
sitting right there watching Dr.
Anderson manipulate his console
and witnessing the gradual dis-
appearance of Frenchie's gall-
It wasn't all that exciting. The
sonar-called a Lithotripsy-just
located the jellybean-shaped gall-
stone and went to work, chipping
away. Dr. Anderson said, "This is
as exciting as it gets!"
He was right. Frenchie lay
there on her stomach letting
those sound hammers chip away,
and almost went to sleep.
For 4,900 impulses, the
sound hammer worked on that
gallstone and when it was
through, all you could see was a
pile of dust where it had been.
THE LITHOTRIPSY machine
Frenchie was using, was an ex-
perimental model, with a smaller
sound hammer than the old mod-
el which is used primarily on kid-
ney stones. She was number 32
to get on the machine. Dr. Ander-
son said that while the operation
portion of the machine was not
experimental, the machine, itself,
was considered experimental un-
til it had zapped 300 gallstones.
Experimental or not, the ma-
chine shattered that gallstone
and saved Frenchie from a pain-
ful surgical procedure and sever-
al weeks of recuperation.
This isn't to say the stone will
not re-form and cause her to
eventually have to undergo sur-
gery. Only time will tell that. But
for the present time, science has
taken care of everything in a
painless, trouble-free hour which
showed immediate results.

The Big 'W" Word
The big "W" word is WORK and there's a lot to be said about it. I
don't know if you've ever thought about it, but work is a very mean-
ingful word. Consider the following:
Work is done by workers. There are good workers and not-so-
good workers. Then there are those who are just plain sorry. There
are usually a few sorry workers in every business.
The place workers go to work is called a "workplace". There are
good places to work and places that are not so good. Workplaces
tend to get a reputation, good or bad, like some men and women, if
you know what I mean. I would rather not hear what people say
about working at my workplace.
There's an odd thing about work that I don't understand. Take
one job, for example, in the same workplace and say there are 50
people doing it; the same work, that is. Some of those people will
enjoy their work and some of them will hate it. The ones who hate it
still go to work most of the time, however. There is a reason for this,
which will be explained later.
Every place I've worked had a boss. This is a person who is sup-
posedly in charge and: who tells everyone else what to do. Some
bosses take this authority to extremes, like wanting everyone to ask
them when they can go to the bathroom. The person who works for
himself has the worst boss.
Work is done by different people for different reasons. Some
people love their jobs, but they are a minority, I think. The vast ma-
jority of people who work, work for one reason; to receive compen-
sation. Compensation is commonly referred to as a "paycheck".
Some people don't work, period! There are various reasons why
they don't work, 'as you may have guessed. Some are sick and una-
ble to work, while others are just lazy and won't work. There are
some trashy names for those who don't work because they are lazy,
most of which I can't print here.
Still, there are those who go to work but don't work. They want
a paycheck, though, and if anything is said about them backing up
to get their check, they usually get very angry, acting as though
they had worked for it.
People who work are usually happier than those who choose
not to work. Most people I know who work live in houses, ride in
cars or trucks, eat food almost every day and wear clothes that are
decent. Some women I know who work wear very little when they
are at the beach, but that's alright with me. Anyway, some of these
"working" people actually take vacations, a term I'm not too familiar
There are very few people I've met who don't work, but who
have worked, who are as happy as they were when they did work.
These people are called "well-adjusted". They are also called "re-
tired" or "well-off'. '"Well-off' is a kind word for rich folks.
And there are those who think they would be happy not work-
ing, but it's my opinion that they are fooling themselves. I am prob-
ably one of those people, but I would love to give it a turn and see
how I shape up after about 10 years!
Work may be the curse of the common man, but it sure cures a
lot of ills and bills! WORK ONW!!!!!! !

wasn't cardboard, it was a way of
life. So you can imagine the joy
when my boys recently started
collecting cards. I went into a
baseball card shop (what a great
idea we didn't have those in
my day) and before I could buy a
pack for the boys, I spied a 1953
Gene Woodling hanging on the
wall. Son of a gun, I'll buy it for
old times sake.

Emergency Medical Services
Have Evolved Since Mid 1800's
, We're not "'ust ambulance
Webster defines "ambulance"
as "a vehicle equipped for ti-ans-
porting the injured or sick" or,
ambulantt field hospital". (Ambu-
lant meaning movingg about".)
Records show "ambulance servic-
es" existed as early as 1852 when
vehicles were drawn by horses,
quite different from the ambu-
lances of today. Care and trans-
portation of th sick and injured is
nothing new, but, just as every-
thing around us has progressed,
so has our ambulance services.
In the early days, the country
doctor mae house calls and treat-
ed his patients at home or in the
fields. As practices grew it be-
came more practical for the doc-
tor to remain in one place and the
patients be transported to him at
a facility where many could be
cared for at one time.
At war, much was learned
about treating and transporting
the sick and injured. There were
the field medics who carried the
first aid supplies in the early
wars and hoped the injured could
be moved to hospitals In a timely
manner, but many woutided did
With the Korean War. .it was
learned that the closer the ad-
vanced medicine was to the ac-
tion, the better the chances for

survival for the wounded.' Thus,
the M.A.S.H. unit was estab-
lished. M.A.S.H.. a surgical hospi-
tal that was close to the,-action
where the wounded could receive
almost immediate surgical Inter-
vention, become stabilized, then
be transported to the larger mili-
tary hospitals for recovery. The
M.A.S.H. unit moved with the ac-
tion. It was during this war also
we began to learn the helicopter
was ideal for getting in quickly
and transporting the wounded to
the nearly M.A.S.H. unit. We also
began to realize that shock was a
critical link in the recovery of the
wounded soldier. To treat this
threat the MAST suit was devel-
oped. (Military Anti-Shock Trou-
sers) These trousers were put on
the patient and inflated, causing
a rise in the patient's blood pres-
sure. Another breakthrough in
improving chances for survival.
But the field medics still per-
formed basic treatments.,
With the Viet Nam W r, we
learned more research on "shock"
that immediate fluid, replacement
played' a critical role in recover.
I.V. solutions were packaged in
pliable containers to be t'sed in
the field to provide mbre ad-
vanced life support during the
'Golden Hou&". Larger helicopters
transported more wounded
Meanwhile, back at hirdme as
America prepared for our journey
into space, scientists needed a
way to monitor the bodily func-
tions of our astronauts. Thus, the
cardiac monitor was initiated and
soon streamlined for mobility. As
we learned more about heart dis-
ease and its causes and treat-
ments, advances were made on
the medical side of treatment of
the patient as well.
As the "ambulance drivers"
continued to pick up and trans-
port patients to hospitals, re-
search data was compiled. Data
from the wars, the M.A.S.H.
units, the aerospace scientists
and and the physicians who regu-
larly had to pull dreaded rota-
tions in emergency rooms all over
the country, was pooled together
and studied. It was envisioned
that people could be trained to be
the eyes, ears and hands in the
field for doctors, who could simul-
taneously minister to their pa-
tients at the hospital. It was fur-,,
ther proven that these people
could utilize all the knowledge,
skills,- and equipment that had
evolved and treat any patient any-
where. Thus, in the 70's came the
Emergency Services and the
Emergency Physician. We became
Emergency Medical Technicians
and Paramedics (depending on
the states we lived in). So it was,
that the ambulance personnel
had to do more than drive now
they had to treat the patient they

Road Superintendent Bob
Lester reported he is receiving
complaints about two railroad
crossings in the Port St. Joe area.
Lester said, "The crossings at
Niles Road and on 396 are very
rough because the railroad has
installed larger rails on these
crossings, raising them up high-
er than the road level."
The question was, who is re-
sponsible for the condition of the
crossings, the railroad, the
county, or both.
Chairman Birmingham sug-
gested the county should write
the Apalachicola Northern Rail-
road Company to help with re-
palrtd the rough crossings.
.Commissioner Ed Creamer
said, "If they caused the rough
condition, they should fix it. If we
caused it, we should fix it."
Commissioner Nathan Peters
then moved the county offer to
share the cost with the railroad
and his motion carried, with
Parker and Creamer voting "no".
The Board was all set for a
lengthy discussion on the Health
Department operation: particu-
larly the primary care phase of
the department services.
Dr. Landis 'Crockett, head of
the program, with offices in Talla-
hassee, was scheduled to be at
the meeting, but was involved in
an automobile accident on his
way to the meeting.
Local Health Department rep-
resentatives, Donna Drew and
Joy Rowland, were at the meet-
ing, but could not answer policy
questions the Board wanted to
ask of Dr. Crockett.
Drew did assure the Board
that the primary health program
was operating with part time phy-
sician coverage by Dr. Jorge San
Pedro and utilizing services of,
private doctors where the need is

In other business matters,
-Agreed to begin advertising
for proposals on a bond issue to
be sold against revenues from the
new six cent motor fuel tax. In
the meantime, the Commission
was asked to submit road paving
needs in their districts so the
program could get started.
-Agreed to begin engineering
work on some of the road pro-
jects, so it would be complete
when the bond issue is sold.
-Agreed to apply for a demo-
lition and construction landfill
because less costs are involved.
The new designation is allowed to
accept everything a Class III
landfill can, except yard trash
and industrial wastes.

Third Coastal Clean-Up
Scheduled for Sept. 23
The Port St. Joe City Beautifi-
cation Committee is again pro-
moting the third Coastal Clean
Up sponsored by the Center of
Marine Conservation. Pallas
Gandy, the local coordinator, is
asking for all local volunteer who
wish to participate in this event
to contact either her, one of the
Committee members, or City Hall.
In order to coordinate the joint ef-
forts to cover the entire coast of
Gulf County from Indian Pass to
St. Joe Beach, volunteers are
needed. This third Coastal Clean
Up will take place all over the
state of Florida on Saturday, Sep-
tember 23 from 9 a.m. until
Last April 8, the largest clean
up in the history of the United
States took place. More than
12,000 volunteers picked up over
307 tons of debris from 965 miles
of Florida's coastline.
During the April 8 clean up,
more than 233 miles of plastic
monofilament line and numerous
discarded fish nets were collect-
ed. This gear can entangle and
kill a variety of shore birds and
marine animals. Eight (8) clean
up sites reported entangled wild-
life in April.
Another impact of plastics in
the ocean occurs when it is in-
gested by sealife and shorebirds.
Fall Conference Set
at Faith Bible Church
Plastics have contributed to some
of the deaths of the sea turtles,
porpoises, and sea birds found on
Also last April, foreign debris
from 34 different countries were
found on Florida's coast. Plastic
containers came from as far away
as Japan, Russia, Malaysia, Indo-
nesia, Chile, Sweden and Norway.
Plastic debris from at least six dif-
ferent cruise lines was also re-
ported. Continued data collection
during the Coastal Clean Ups will
help determine the effectiveness
of the International Marine Pollu-
tion (MARPOL) Treaty which for-
bids the dumping of plastics into
the oceans. This went into effect
December 31, 1989.

NOSE DROPS CAN GET
Nose drops are helpful in the treatment of adults and
children. Most physicians prescribe them. When you get
them from your pharmacy they are pure and potent. But as
soon as you take out and use the dropper, it is exposed to
virulent germs which may enter the bottle, multiply and
cause a severe infection. Removal of the protective cap of
the spray bottles permits these germs to collect at the top to
To avoid this, cleanse the dropper and top of the bottle
with alcohol before replacing it. Examine partly used nose
drops and if the contents become cloudy, or a sediment
develops, don't use them. It may be dangerous.
"A GREAT MANY PEOPLE ENTRUST US with their
prescriptions, health needs and other pharmacy products.

Floodplain Area In Gulf Available for Public Recreational Use
The Northwest Florida Water
Management District presently
has two major river floodplain ar-
eas available for public use, but
some of these uses require a per-
mit from the District. The Chocta-
whatchee River Water Manage-
ment Area contains 35.200 acres
and reaches from Caryvllle down
the river nearly to Choctawhatch-
ee Bay. The 35,500 acre Apalach-
icola River Water Management
Area extends from north of the
Florida River in Liberty County to
the Brothers River in Gulf County
and includes all of Cutoff Island.
These lands were purchased from
the Arizona-based Southwest For-
est Industries in 1985.
The water management dis-
trict issues, through county tax
collector offices and their suba-
gents, a permit that is required
only for those who plant to camp,
fish or hunt on these lands. No
permit of any kind is needed for
hiking, canoeing, horseback rid-
ing, picnicking, photography or
otherwise just enjoying this bit of
"Florida as it used to be."
A resource area permit for
most Florida residents and non-
residents costs $11, or $11.50 if
bought from one of many conven-
ient subagents of the tax collec-
tor. It is valid for one year from
the date of purchase and, begin-
ning this year, a single permit
can be used for fishing, camping
or hunting in both the Apalachi-
cola and the Choctawhatchee Wa-
ter Management Areas.
A permit is not required
however, if fishing is the user's
only interest and is undertaken
from a boat on the river. The
"Cane Pole Exemption" is also in
effect. A person fishing in his or
her county of residence, with
handlines or poles with no reels
and using natural baits, does not
need a permit unless the catch is
to be sold. Those persons who
fish from the riverbanks or on
lakes within the water manage-
ment area do need a permit.
For hunters, there is an addi-
tional $5.00 chare for a hunting

Miss Sue's Kindergarten
Students Paint Hands
Usually teachers tell children
not to get paint on their hands or
anything else, but not this time.
Mrs. Sue McDaniel's Kindergart-
en class got to put paint on their
hands, rub them together, and
then print them onto a shirt.
Then Mrs. McDaniel let them
print their little handprint on her
shirt. That is, when she was not
wearing it! This would not have
been possible without the expert
help of Mrs. Deanna Daniels and
Mrs. Debbie Kemp.
