Solid Waste Collection System Shutting Down
Argus Given Franchise
to Operate Service in
County Suburban Areas
Solid waste trailer systems being discontinued by County Monday Morning -- waste must be hauled to compactor site.
Chief of Police Carl Richter
said the local Police Department
received some 20 to 25 calls from
different parts of the nation fol-
lowing the NBC television pro-
gram, "Unsolved Mysteries," last
Chief Richter said that in ad-
dition to the local calls, the NBC
network said they received 348
calls at their California number
publicized on the show, which
they considered to be a good re-
action to the program.
"As a result of the calls, we
have several good leads in the
case which are now being
checked by the FBI," Richter
said. "Most of the calls were from
people reporting they had seen
suspicious white vans, all of
which are being checked out ei-
ther by us or by the FBI. We also
had several good leads which
may lead us to being closer to
solving this mystery which we
have found ourselves involved
in." the Chief said.
Richter said some of the calls
are being checked in the Port St.
Joe area, while several are being
looked at in other parts of the na-
'We feel real good about re-
sults from the program and hope
it results in something concrete,"
The mystery involved two-
young people who were thought
to be abducted in New Mexico. A
picture found on a Port St. Joe
convenience store parking lot of
the two children are the only
clues to the mystery. The photo
was shown on the TV show.

gined in .the brief inconvenience caused
here from Kate.
For this reason, a sudden, spontane-
ous effort has been started here in Port

The Gulf County Commission
did what they have been threat-
ening to do, Tuesday night, when
they officially gave the notice to
Sam Graves, director of the Mos-
quito Control Department to
bring in all the Swa-Car garbage
collectors and don't place them
The move was made by the
Commission as the first step in a
year-long program to overhaul its
solid waste program to be more
manageable and more affordable
in a hard-pressed county budget.
In addition to bringing in all
the collection trailers from their
several convenient locations
throughout the county, the Board
voted to grant a one year garbage
collection franchise to Argus, In-
corporated of Panama 'City.
Argus was one of three bid-
ders, but lacked three cents per
month being the low bidder of the
The low bidder was M&O
sanitation of Panama City, but
M&O either couldn't or didn't
meet the requirement of putting
up a performance bond in its bid,
so it was rejected in Argus' favor.
The third bidder in the field
was C&N Enterprises of Blount-
stown, which bid $12.95 per
month for once a week pick-up.
C&N's price included provision
of a 90 gallon garbage container
and a tipping fee for transporting
the collection to the Bay County
Argus' winning bid was to
collect from Its customers one
time a week for a $9.00 monthly
collection fee. Argus' owner said
he -also. provided--discounts -for-
senior citizens in-all his collection
Argus was also awarded the
bid because he is already operat-
ing in much of Gulf County on a
private basis, serving many of the
unincorporated areas in both
ends of the county and along the
Argus said he is already mak-
ing plans to expand his opera-
tions throughout the county and
will be in full operation by Octo-
ber 1, when his contract begins.
Argus has only a franchise
and is not a contracted operator
for the county. His dealings will
be with private customers and
not with Gulf County, who has
only the power over the collector
given by his franchise.
Commissioner Jimmy Gort-
man wanted the Commission to
accept the C&N bid of $12.95 per
month to rid the county of the ex-
pense of tipping fees at the incin-
erator. "I want Gulf County to get
completely out of the garbage
business," Gortman said.
'To do that, you would have
to make subscription to the col-
lection system mandatory for our
people and I'm not ready to do
that just yet," Commissioner Ed
On the vote to award the
franchise, Gortman backed up
his convictions by refusing to ap-
prove the franchise. Creamer,
Chairman Birmingham and Park-
er all voted in favor. Commission-
er Nathan Peters was absent
from Tuesday's meeting.
On Monday, collection trail-
ers throughout the county will be
removed and taken out of service.
This ends the practice of allowing
private home owners to haul
their own solid waste to the trail-
ers and the county trailing the
collection bins to the compactor
located just north of Port St. Joe
and to the new compactor pres-
ently under construction on
Highway 22, west of Wewahitch-
Beginning Monday, it will be
the responsibility of the home-
owners to take their solid waste
to one of the two compactors in
the county or subscribe to Argus'
service. Residents inside incorpo-
rated areas will see no changes in
their garbage collection services. _
The county will have moni-
tors patrolling in an attempt to
control indiscriminate dumping
on lonely roads, in wooded areas
and other places throughout the
county in an attempt to prevent
the same situation from recurring
which the placement of trailers
solved several years ago.
Whatever the county finally
does, it will still be in the solid
Six bids were received from
fiscal agents, who all wanted to

Hugo's Rains Batter Gulf County
Port St. Joe missed the dubious distinc-
tion of hosting Hurricane Hugo last week,
but the rains which followed behind the
huge hurricane battered Gulf County over
the week end, dumping a total of 7.1 inches
of rain in the Port St. Joe area between Sat-
urday afternoon and Tuesday morning.
The Star's official unofficial rain person,
, Emily Simmons, said her gauge showed a to-
Stdrff 5.2 inches of precipitation from 8:00
a.m., Sunday through 7:00 p.m., Monday,
when the heaviest rains were recorded.

See the Signs
We can see the unmistakable signs everywhere. It's in the
news, the editorials, the columnists are subtly preparing us
and even the editorial cartoons are geared toward getting us
ready to accept what is going to be introduced within about a
year, according to our reckoning.
We're talking about an attempt to legalize drugs which are
presently abusing and totally upsetting the mood of our nation.
Occasionally a warrior against the drug trade will resolutely
throw up his hands and lament that the only way we can de-
feat it is to legalize it, taking the enormous profit out of dealing
in the deadly stuff.
Like we did with liquor.
Just last week, we read a column by normally level-headed
Mike Royko-who is liberal to a point, but also cynical enough
to pretty much admit to reality-where Mike was interviewing a
Chicago policeman who works with trying to control drugs in
his district and had reached the conclusion that legalization
was the only way to combat the drug traffic. The only thing
which bothered us about Royko's column is thatihe didn't close
out in his usual realistic style, presenting the policeman's theo-
ry, then adding a Royko "but..."
That Royko "but. ." is what I always look for when I read
his columns. He carries on a lot of foolishness between the
opening and closing lines, with the closing line usually sup-
porting the accepted American way of solving the problem at
In the same issue of the newspaper which had printed Roy-
ko's column, was an editorial cartoon which showed the Re-
publicans and the Democrats playing cards, with one raising
the other two billion in the "game" against drugs. The point of
the cartoon was unmistakable, as it should be with all editorial
cartoons. The author saw the present war on drugs as just a
never-ending no-win game the nation was playing, with the po-
litical parties going along with the polls by making a big, but
meaningless show against the drug menace.
We will agree with Royko's policeman in one respect. If we're
not going to get deadly serious about winning the war on con-
trolled substances, we had just as well make preparations to-
ward legalizing it, even if the majority of our people don't want
any part of it.
Of course, here in the United States, where probably less
than 20% of our people have ever used illegal drugs, we're ac-
customed to the minorities, of whatever stripe, determining
what the rest of us do. It's just the prerogative of those of us
who keep our nose clean to pay the bill for cleaning up after
those who don't.
As for legalization, let's consider this; did legality solve the
problems of alcoholism and the horrendous expense we as a
nation endure each and every year because of liquor?
They Need Our Help
Remember what it was like in Port St. Joe four years ago
when Hurricane Kate paid us an unwelcome visit?
Remember how you made arrangements to cook meals,
light.up. the dark and keep the food in your freezers and refrig-
erators from going bad? Remember how helpless. you felt. not
being able to buy gasoline because it couldn't be pumped out
of the ground? The futility of going to the grocery store because
they couldn't operate nothing without power?
It was a helpless feeling in Port St. Joe for three or four
days after Kate went whistling off into the sunset.
That same feeling is being felt by the people in and around
Charleston, South Carolina, now, and a group of people in Port
St. Joe has decided to give back a little bit of the help which
poured into our city after Kate's call. We. had food vans come
in. People came to help clear debris. The Baptists of Alabama
sent a self-contained trailer to serve food to all who had no way
to prepare it themselves. They stayed as long as needed and
cooked up food which came into the area from those wishing to
Now Port St. Joe is asking all who will to help those in
Charleston. Join in the effort to send supplies to that devastat-
ed area by the last of this week. Bring your donations to the
Fire Station. A truck will be waiting. You'll have repaid a great
kindness shown you when you help others.

This was a big event. We had to
park down behind the theater.
There was no room left up on the
square. Dad gave us each a dime
and went off to talk to the men
about the weather. Mrs. Mitchell
stopped Mother to talk about
church. She shooed us off with a
wave and a wink, 'You boys run
along, your Mother and I have
some grown-up talking to do."
Good ole Mrs. Mitchell, she
saved us a million times a ten
year old couldn't have a better

Woodrow Kennon's Dry Goods,
Mercantile and Grocery Store. I
was on the front porch pouring
peanuts into my Dr. Pepper when
Bobby and Ricky showed up.
They must'a got to town a'few
minutes before we did. Ricky's

"Naw, the High School Band

shoulder. Mr. Cannon's ice was

Doctors In Dinky Hospital Gowns Are Not A Pretty Sight
IT WAS MORE OR less sad- -
istic reasons which sent me to
Panama City late Monday after-
noon to check on my old friend,
Dr. Wayne Hendrix after his re-
wiring job of last Friday.
As you probably know, by
now, Dr. Wayne had four brand-
new by-passes plugged into his
heart on Friday morning, after di-
agnosing himself as needing
them and sending himself to the
hospital, with unfortunate nurse
Kathleen Grace, doing the trans-
p6rting in Dr. Wayne's car.
I could really do a hatchet job
on Dr. Wayne finally being on the
receiving end of the torture of a
stay in the hospital.
The good doctor is going to
get all he can handle when he
gets back home and Miss Ruth
reads him the riot act for his ac-
tions leading up to and including
his admission to Bay Medical for
his re-wiring job.
You see, he kept all the pre-
liminary events a secret from
Miss Ruth, and the roof is fixing
to fall in at the Hendrix house-
hold. The good doctor may just
find himself back in the hospital
with bruises and contusions, af-
ter he gets back home.
OLD DOC WAYNE didn't tell
Miss Ruth he didn't sleep at all
When he let Ruth sleep to
7:00 a.m., Thursday morning,
rather than waking her at 6:00,
he got a grouch instead of a
thank-you. When he went to the
office at 8:30 rather than the
usual 9:30, Ruth was ready to
flip her lid, because the doctor
was deviating from the standard
routine of daily motion in all di-
rections. Nothing was going to fit
at all that day!
Dr. Wayne went to work,
grumbled at his staff to take
some tests, then shanghaied
Kathleen into his car and away
they went, with Kathleen driving
like the occasion required and
Dr. Wayne grumbling and griping
every speeding mile of the way.
Kathleen just gritted her
teeth, and sweetly cooed, "Doc,
just shut your mouth, I'm trying
to save your life!" Then she hit
the gas pedal even harder, touch-
ing the ground only twice from
Mexico Beach to Bay Medical.
You see, it's OK to endanger
the life of a dying patient rushing
him to the hospital as fasts as
possible, but don't try it with a
I SAID MY VISIT was for
sadistic reasons. I took my
preacher, Dr. Dan Duncan along
to comfort the good Doc and Cecil
Harrison, one of our deacons, to
assure old Doc his back row -at
church was being handled by a
couple of teen-agers while he was
But the real reason was to
gloat over the condition the com-
passionate Doc found himself in
after being confined to the hospi-

I have. And I was all set to
enjoy seeing Dr. Wayne-even,
though he's my friend-in this
position and ask him, as kindly
as possible, "Now, how do YOU
like them apples?"
You see, old Doc Wayne has
put me in this position twice.
Once, he messed up my
Christmas vacation by perform-
ing a hernia operation and strap-
ping me in a bed for five days in
Municipal Hospital. Consider, if
you will, spending a Christmas
Day in ANY hospital
A second time, he made me
spend a Labor Day week end in
Municipal, after deciding to take
out my .appendix on a Sunday
Notice, both times, he chose
a holiday to lay me low. He
couldn't select a time when I was
up to my eyebrows in work and
could use a few days of rest. He
On Monday morning, after
taking out my appendix on Sun-
day, he added insult to injury, by
sending his wife, Miss Ruth, into
the hospital room with a plateful
of steamed crab claws, resting on
a dome of ice.
There's not much I like more
than steamed crab claws, but the
morning after an appendectomy,
somehow those crab claws just
didn't look all that appetizing.
He just patted me on the
shoulder and said, "Get with it
boy! The sooner you eat those
crab claws and move those bow-
els, the sooner you get out of that
soft, warm, comfortable bed and
out of this wonderful place."
I GUESS ALL THESE things
came flooding back into Doctor
Wayne's mind Monday evening
He had just gotten out of in-
tensive care, where his visit will
long be remembered, I'm told. He
told the nurses how to treat him,
where to stick the needles and
what they could do with their
bedpans and pills.
He was a holy terror in that
ICUI I'm told they shipped him
out two days early because of the
ruckus he was causing.
While we were there, the
nurse came by and removed his
IVs and he immediately started
trying to climb out of bed.
I've tried that. Haven't you? I
got shoved back into bed and
told, unceremoniously to stay
there! What happened to you?
That's what happened to Dr.
Wayne, too! Served him right!
He decided he didn't want
visitors in the room at that par-
ticular time and I strongly sus-
pect it was because he hadn't
bathed in four days, his hair
hadn't been combed or washed in
nearly a week and he hadn't
shaved that morning. Nor did he
have his shirt and tie on.
Have you ever had these feel-
ings when the hordes of visitors
have been allowed into your hos-
pital room by our good doctor
and others like him?
Now you know what I mean
by sadistic reasoning for going to
see my long time friend.
By the way. As you gathered
by his directing, grouching, de-
manding and shouting at nurses,
old Dr. Wayne is doing finely
He at least has presence of
mind not to try these tactics on
Dr. Cook, his cardiologist.

A Bachelor Again
A little over a month ago our night manager at the hotel left and
went home to Alabama. His departure left me in somewhat of a
For those of you who have never owned or worked in a hotel, I
must tell you that you have missed one of the most interesting pro-
fessions on earth. Interesting may not be the proper word, but I'll
just leave it at that for now.
Anyway, it was my job to find someone reliable and dependable
to replace our former manager. I discovered a person the day before
the manager left. I saw him looking back at me that morning as I
My youngest son agreed to stay with me at night so I wouldn't
be too lonely. This made a potentially unpleasant job turn out to be
quite an enlightening experience. When we started moving in, I was
reminded of my old college days; the carefree days of bachelorhood.
As I said, it was quite an experience. Here are some of the things
we did and did not do that we normally would have done or not
have done had we been living with our entire family.
*We watched t.v. until our eyes were bloodshot and we couldn't
stay awake any longer. We didn't miss Johnny Carson a single night
except when we rented two or three movies. It was tough getting up
*We never made up our bed in the morning and we didn't put
our dirty clothes in the hamper. Dirty jeans, shirts and socks were
so thick on the floor at times that we couldn't see the carpet. After a
*' few days our bedroom began to smell something like a football lock-
*We never used napkins when we ate. I was amazed at how
wasteful I've been with paper napkins throughout the years. If we
happened to spill something or leave some food residue on our fac-
es, we just wiped it with our shirt sleeves. We didn't use a table
cloth because they have to be washed.
*We ate a lot of heavy, late-night snacks. We ate things like
cookies and ice cream, banana and peanut butter sandwiches, pan-
cakes and sausage and such. And we ate until we couldn't eat any
*We didn't wash dishes but once a week or until all of them were
dirty. Admittedly, the kitchen began to smell a little like the garbage
dump, but we didn't stay in there much.
*We cut our bathroom time in half. We also saved a bundle on
toothpaste, soap and deodorant and such. What the heckl you don't
need to be that clean and smell that good if there's no women
*We dressed very casually after eight o'clock. Most of the time
we just wore our shorts when we had clean ones because we
were just relaxing. You don't have to dress to watch t.v. or read
comic books. It was also convenient to scratch where it itched.
*We ran the air conditioner as low as it would go at night. One
morning I woke up and the t.v. was frozen up and wouldn't come on
it was so cold. This didn't help our light bill but it sure made sleep-
We did and didn't do a lot of other things, too, like talking a lot
of "'man talk". We discussed girls, hunting and fishing, wrestling
and football and many other things that escape me right now. But

They finished that. "Apple

If it's September, it must be
time for Oktoberfestl Sound a
little confusing? Well, that's the
way it's done in Bavaria and
that's the way Panama City is
doing it this year. Oktoberfest is
being held on Saturday, Septem-
ber 30th, from 8:00 a.m. till
10:30 p.m., and the site for this
year's festivities will be the Grace
Avenue Mini Mall area.
Oktoberfest, celebrating one
of the many cultural heritages of
the Bay County region, is a time
when everyone is a little bit
German for a day. So dust off
your lederhosen, bring a hearty
appetite and raise your steins to
the delicious German dishes, the
"oom-pah-pah" music, dancing,
games and authentic costumes
you will find at this year's
To start the day there will be
a downtown Merchant's Market
where you will have the chance to
shop for everything from antiques
to yo-yos, all donated by
downtown businesses and all
proceeds going to benefit the
Junior Museum. The Market will
run from 8:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m.
Children's activities will begin at
noon and continue until 4:00
p.m., running the gamut from
face painting to the Grand Slam.
from the Whopper Hopper "moon
walk" to mysterious fortune
tellers. In all, 30 activities are
planned which will test the
youngsters' skill and luck. One of
the highlights of the day is the
much anticipated and hotly
contested Corporate Tricycle
Race, also known as "The Great
Trike Race", to be held from 2:30
to 3:00, featuring such area
luminaries as Deck Hull, Guy
Tunnell, and Tom Najjar to name
but a few.
Additional contests and
activities will be ongoing through-
out the afternoon and evening. A
St. Pauli Girl 'T-shirt Tug" has
been added this year (it's one of
those things where you just gotta
be there") sponsored by St. Paull
Girl beer. And no Oktoberfest
would be complete without a
Sausage Dog Contest! The
dachshund's German ancestry
will be celebrated at 3:00 p.m.,
and prizes and admiration will be
awarded. (If you have one of these
special dogs and would like to be
included let us know.) Other
contests include beer drinking,
pie-eating, polka, German

BEACH CABLE TV
Multi-Vision Cable 'IV offi-
cials came to the meeting Tues-
day night, to discuss refusal of
the county to give them a permit
for work on St. Joe Beach- road
When their time came for ap-
pearance before the Board, the
fireworks started, with the county
threatening to lift their franchise
if they were given promises which
were not kept just one more time.
Commissioner Ed Creamer
said the firm had transmission
difficulties for about "three or
four days" last week. "I called the
number listed and didn't get any-
body. I finally called an 800 num-
ber I was given and got hold of an
answering service in Mobile, who
said they would relay the mes-
sage. Eventually I got the answer-
ing service back who reported it
would be Monday before the
cable company would collect its
calls," Creamer said.
The commissioner went on to
say, 'We were promised there
would be a warm body in Gulf
County we could call and get our
problems taken care of and this
didn't happen," he charged.
Chairman Birmingham reit-
erated the claim saying, "this is
the third or fourth time we have
been made this promise and it
has never been carried out. We
have two more firms wanting to
go into your operating area right
now and if this keeps up, we are
going to have to do something,"
Charles Roberts again told
the Commission his firm would
do better, it was re-building the
system and needed the permits
for that work and he would per-
sonally check out the complaints
aired by the Commissioners.
Roberts was instructed to get
with Building Supervisor De-
wayne Manuel for his permits
and Manuel would instruct him
in what he would have to do. "He
will also see that it is done if you
maintain your permit," Birming-
Birmingham told Roberts, "If

with Gulf County from this day
forward, you're going to have to

Volunteers Pick Up 1,860 # of Beach Debris
The rains held off Saturday
until the volunteers cleaning the
beaches of Gulf County could fin-
ish their task, and had collected
1,860 pounds of debris which
had been deposited on Gulfs
beaches. These volunteers joined
others from all over the Florida
and 19 other states in the annual
Coastal Clean-Up Day.
Locally, 55 volunteers spent
three hours Saturday morning
combing the beaches, looking for
litter, making an active statement
for cleaner beaches. Not only did
the volunteers collect the debris,
but also recorded on data cards
the nature of the debris, which
was collected on 25 miles of the
county's coastline. Over 62% of
the debris was made of plastic,
11% metal & paper, 9.5% glass,
2.3% wood, 1.7% rubber and
1.3% cloth. These materials take
hundreds of years to disintegrate.

Just as those physicians who
had to rotate duty in emergency
rooms throughout the country re-
alized, Emergency Medical Servic-
es realized emergencies were not
specific to one entity. From trau-
ma and heart attacks, to drown-
ings and delivering babies, the
persons working in the field to
answer emergency calls on an
ambulance needed training as di-
versified as the emergencies
themselves. Colleges began un-
dertaking the tasks of setting up
training programs to meet the
>needs of all emergencies. Natural-
,lyi, as research and progress im-
proved, the training became more
intense and diversified. Each year
as more research .data is .pro-
cessed, regulation restrictions are
tightened and new laws are
passed .to upgrade services and
standards for emergency care.
More restrictions, laws, and high-
-er standards means more ad-
vanced training. Socio-economic
changes have brought about the
need for still more advanced and
diversified knowledge for those in
The early days of EMS dealt

brought new emergencies and
also unlike our military medics,
we were not all prepared for cat-

Gators Lose District Game
The Wewahitchka Gators had
the Greensboro Bulldogs on
friendly turf last Friday night, but
*still couldn't get their offense un-
corked enough to overcome a
strong Greensboro offensive ef-
Greensboro put together two
touchdowns in the second quar-
ter and one in the third, to edge
the Gators in a 19-7 game.
It was a critical game for both
teams, as the Gators have been
two-time winners in their 1-A dis-
trict and Greensboro has been a
perennial powerhouse in the Pan-
handle for the past several years.
It was an early district position
game for both teams.
The Gators lone score came
on a one-yard plunge by quarter-
back Mike Sewell in the final pe-
riod of the game.
The scrambling Gator quar-
terback also led his team on the
ground with 72 of the Gators'
115 rushing yards. He also
passed twice to Michael Myers for
47 yards through the air.
Defensively, Myers picked off
two pass interceptions for the Ga-
tors and Solomon Fisher snagged
one. Denny McGlon picked up a
Greensboro fumble and returned
it 60 yards before he was caught
from behind. McGlon also
blocked a Greensboro punt.
The Bulldogs scored in the
second period on a 10 yard run
by Curtis Crittenden, but had the
extra point attempt blocked, by
Denny McGlon of the Gators.
Crittenden also scored on a seven
yard run in the second quarter,
but the two point conversion at-
tempt failed to add more points
on the board. Crittenden scored
again for Greensboro in the third
period on a 27 yard scamper.
This time. J.R. Hostetter kicked
the lone extra point for the visi-

curate kicking, by kicking the

Gator Eggs to be Hatched on Farms
What happens if a nuisance
alligator, removed because it was
a threat to humans, was a female
with a nest full of eggs?
The Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission has implement-
ed a pilot program that allows
nuisance alligator trappers to de-
liver orphaned eggs to licensed al-
ligator farmers to rear.
According to Dennis David,
coordinator of the Commission's
alligator management program,
the eggs could hatch on their
own, but they probably would fall
victim to raccoons or other preda-
"Female alligators don't sit on
their nests to hatch their young
like birds do," David said. "In-
stead they guard their nests from
predators and help the young
move into the water after hatch-
ing. Even if predators do not de-
stroy the eggs, hatchlings usually
need their mother's assistance to
make it out of nests and into the
Female alligators build nests
of decaying vegetation. They are
usually 3 to 4 feet in diameter.
They deposit an average of 40
eggs, which incubate within the
nest for 60 to 65 days.
David said nesting females
are not necessarily more likely to
'They usually build nests in
secluded areas and are not likely
to attack unless they sense a
threat to their nests," he said.
"Occasionally, a female will build
a nest near an area of human ac-
tivity, and it may become a prob-
If a nuisance trapper removes
an alligator that turns out to be a
nesting female, he must receive
authorization from the Commis-
sion before transferring the eggs
to a licensed gator farm.

pose a threat to humans, pets or

vwiith 50 independent trappers to

Kirkland said a cute three-to-

"As they grow they lose their

extremely nasty night in Perry
last Friday night at least it
was bright for the Sharks. In
spite of losing the ball three times
on five fumbles and having two
passes intercepted on a sloppy,
rain-soaked field, the Sharks still
put together a 16-7 win over the
3-A Taylor County Bulldogs. The
win vaulted the Sharks up anoth-
er notch in the 2-A standings,
state-wide. The Sharks are now
ranked number five.
Throwing a wet ball, which
was regularly slipping through
the hands of Shark receivers, the
Sharks couldn't depend on what
has been a potent air attack this
That was only a minor prob-

In spite of Shinholser's score,

gle first down in the first half. It
was the final quarter before the
Bulldogs chalked up a first down,
and they had only four during

Tired of Weeds?
Try Some Mulch
It's Easier Than Bending Your
Back and Not Half As Messy
By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
Most homeowners are looking
for ways of reducing maintenance
in their yards and gardens. The
use of a mulch around plants can
greatly reduce the time spent
mowing and weeding.
A mulch consists of any kind
of material applied to the soil sur-
face around plants to control
weeds, conserve moisture, and
moderate soil temperature. The
mulch material may be organic
such as compost, bark, leaves,
grass clippings or similar materi-
als; or inert such as gravel, peb-
bles or polyethylene film. Mulches
suppress weeds when the mulch
materials itself is weed-free and is
applied deeply enough to prevent
weed germination or smother ex-
isting small weeds. An occasional
weed may poke through the
mulch, but it can be easily pulled
Mulch materials have many
beneficial effects upon the soil
and plants. They prevent loss of
water from the soil by evapora-
tion. Moisture moves by capillary
action to the surface and evapo-
rates if not covered by a mulch.
Mulching will prevent crusting of
the soil surface, thus improving
absorption and percolation of wa-
ter into the soil and at the same
time, eliminating erosion.
Maintenance of more uniform
,soil temperature can be obtained
. by mulching. The mulch acts as
an insulator that keeps the soil
cool under intense sunlight and
warm during cold spells.
Organic materials used as a
mulch can improve soil structure
and tilth. As it decays the materi-
al works down into the top soil.
Decaying mulch also adds nutri-
ents to the soil.
Mulches also add to the beau-
ty of the landscape by providing a
cover of uniform color and inter-
esting texture to an otherwise
drab surface. Dark colored
mulches widen the pupil of the
Seye, allowing more of the sensible
light from flowers to enter the
eye. Consequently, these dark
mulches give plantings a more at-
The time to apply a mulch to
most established" ornamental
plants is in the spring. When ap-
plying a mulch to newly set vege-
tables or ornamental plants, do
so after they are put into place
and thoroughly watered.
For best results, apply mulch
at least 2 to 4 inches deep over
the whole area; but avoid cover-
ing the crowns of low-growing or-
namental plants. Keeping the
layer deep enough to do the job is
important. This means that more
mulching materials should be
added to the older layers to get
the maximum benefits.
Many organic materials, such
as straw, wood chips, and saw-
dust are rich in carbohydrates
and low in nitrogen. Usually, you
will find it beneficial to add nitro-
gen fertilizer to the material be-
fore applying it as a mulch. One
to two cups of fertilizer high in ni-
trogen (ammonium nitrate, sodi-
um nitrate, or ammonium sul-
fate) for each bushel of organic
material will supply the needed
When plastic film or alumi-
num foil is used as a mulch, it is
essential that fertilizer be applied
before placing the mulch material
on the soil. Broadcast and incor-
porate into the top 2 to 3 inches
of soil a complete fertilizer at the
rate of 2 pounds per 100 square
feet of garden area. The mulch

Church Purpose Is
to Introduce Jesus
Some Christians are experi-
encing a restoration of unity be-
tween denomination lines that
has no apparent human leader-
ship. This unity of thought and
commitment is hard to define,
and it is not shared by everyone.
Nevertheless, those who are in-
volved can readily identify one an-
I can't presume to circum-
scribe something that is probably
undefinable. But I do think it is
possible to characterize some of
the more important particulars of
this unifying force.
Those involved see Jesus
Christ as the central figure of
both salvation history and secu-
lar development. God's revelation
of himself through the person of
Jesus is recorded in the Bible
and defined by the Spirit through
the experience of His Church.
This means that the biblical
expression of the Gospel is our
primary guide to both spiritual
and social matters. While there is
an undeniable drift toward secu-
larism, the Bible, and the ancient
creeds of the Primitive Church,
express and define the essence of
our relationship with God and the
Since the Bible reveals Jesus
as our only savior and mediator,
we are empowered by the Holy
Spirit to worship Almighty God
through him alone. We may rev-
erently honor the memories of
biblical characters, historical per-
sons, and living saints. Yet we
look only to God's revelation of
himself for our doctrine of salva-

character in our relationship with
God, and his holy word is our pri-
mary source for the knowledge of
God, it is no surprise that the
spiritually perceptive come to an-
other common conclusion. That
is the chief concern of the Church
is to win the world for Christ.
The Lord Jesus, according to
his recorded word, came to
present salvation to all who will
come to him. After his crucifixion
he left his Church with the re-
sponsibility of making this pres-
entation. The Church is the body
of Christ in the contemporary
world, thus our singular purpose
is to introduce Jesus and his
good news to others.
The three premises you have
just read are a beginning outline
of the unifying forces within our
faith. Admittedly they are basic
and primitive concepts. Not with-
standing this, they are the prem-
ises that caused the early Church
to multiply at an incredible rate
within the environment of the an-
cient world. And even today,
many of us see them as the basis
for a kind of Christian unity that
transcends any formal structure.
Our beliefs help us to recognize
one another in a world which is
crowded with confusion and de-

Flu Season Is Almost Here!
Vaccination Can Prevent or Lessen Effects of Bout with Influenza
By Nancy J. Morgan, M.D.
The autumn season is almost
upon us: harvest time, school
time, football and the flu. Influen-
za infections have probably
plagued mankind since our earli-
est beginnings and there have
been almost yearly outbreaks
throughout recent recorded histo-
ry. It's caused by a tiny germ
called a virus, less than 1/30th
the size of common bacteria, they
can't be seen with a standard
light microscope. The outbreaks
begin every fall, build up to a
peak over two to three weeks, last
for two to three months, then ta-
per off and disappear just as fast.
The flu is mainly a respiratory
disease and almost always begins
so suddenly that its victims can
often recall the exact hour when
they began feeling bad. Usual
symptoms begin with an intense
headache, followed by feverish-
ness or chilliness, muscle aches,
general weakness and finally the
respiratory symptoms of cough,
sore throat and congestion. Fever
may run from 100*F to 1050F
during the first day and can last
for several days. The whole

course typically builds to a peak
and then resolves in two to five
days. There are a few, though,
that may be left with a "post in-
fluenza" weakness and weariness
that may last for several weeks
after all the other symptoms have
Like most other diseases, the
flu knows no age or class distinc-
tions and is just as happy infect-
ing an adult as a child. Children
usually bounce back with little or
no problem but adults, especially
those with chronic conditions
such as emphysema, bronchitis,
diabetes or heart problems are at
risk for developing serious and
sometimes fatal complications.
Pneumonia is the most common
of these, but others can include
inflammation of the heart, en-
cephalitis or inflammation of the
brain, inflammation and swelling
of the muscles and Reye's Syn-
drome. This last complication is
one that may affect children and
is associated with inflammation
of both the brain and the liver.
You may have heard that aspirin
can increase risk of Reye's and,
indeed, aspirin and its relatives
should never be used during a flu
While it is-true that this little
virus can cause a lot of problems,
it is unfairly blamed for many
other viral diseases. Even those of
us in the medical field are often
guilty of casually calling gastroen-
teritis "the stomach flu" when we
know that real flu mainly infects
the respiratory system. It does
not cause gastrointestinal symp-
toms such as nausea or diarrhea.
There are only two ways we
have of fighting the virus itself.
One is an antibiotic which kills
the virus directly, Just like peni-
cillin attacks bacterial infections.
The other Is a vaccination which
helps our own immune system
fight off the virus before it can in-
fect us. The first influenza vac-
cine was developed in 1958 but it
still took years of development be-
fore it became as effective and
free of side effects as it is today.
The virus is a tricky little custom-
er and seems able to "change its
coat" every year so that our im-
mune system doesn't quite recog-
nize it when it comes to attack us
again. Something like a clever ac-
tor that puts on different make-
up and clothes each time he
comes to visit so we think he's
somebody new. Thus a new vac-
cine has to be made for each year
that will give our immune system
a set of "magic glasses" to see
through the villain's latest dis-
guise. Unlike the vaccines that we
remember from years back, the
present generation is remarkably
effective and has almost no signif-
icant side effects. The most likely
adverse reaction would be mild
redness or tenderness around the
site of injection in 30% or less of
the people and, more rarely, low
grade fever and mile symptoms
eight to 24 hours after the vacci-
nation in less than 5%.
Who should get vaccinations?
1) Any person, six months of age
or older, who has chronic lung or
heart problems, including asth-
ma; 2) residents of nursing
homes; 3) anyone 65 years of age
or older; 4) any adult or child who
has a chronic condition treated
during the preceding year (such
as diabetes); 5) anyone who
works in a health institution such
as hospital, nursing home or doc-
If you have already caught
the flu, the course of symptoms
can be shortened greatly by early
treatment of the one viral antibio-
tic we have, amantadinee". If you
have been exposed to the flu,
haven't caught it yet but haven't
had the vaccine, then treatment
with amantadine, along with a flu
shot, can help keep you from get-
So now is the time to get your
shots. By the time the new year
arrives the season will just about
be over. Just ask your doctor, he
or she will have the weapons to
help you fight back against the
flu before it gets you.
