Wewahitchka Commission Wary of Paving Program


The Wewahitchka City Commission isn't complaining about
the quality of road paving they are receiving in the county-wide
program currently under way. 'We're just concerned about the
fact that we are receiving no inspection or testing of the paving
and we're unsure of what we're getting because of this fact,"
Mayor Gene Hanlon told The Star early Wednesday morning.
Hanlon said the Wewahitchka City Commission is making
waves in the matter because they weren't consulted before the
paving contract was signed and weren't consulted about the pro-
*' ject being carried out in their confines. "Our name doesn't ap-
pear on the contract as one of the parties involved. Only the con-
tractor and County Commission chairman, Ed Creamer, have
signed the contracts," Hanlon commented.
The County Commission issued the call for bids for the
county and the two cities involved in the program, with acquies-
cence from the cities, working on the premise that a better price
could be obtained by lumping all the projects together in one
bid. The County says it did not agree to provide inspection of the
work in their contract.
g Hanlon acknowledges there was no agreement for the County
to furnish inspection but feels the City of Wewahitchka wasn't
consulted properly during the contract procedure.
STILL NO INSPECTOR
The Wewahitchka City Commission met in a special session
Tuesday night to consider employing an inspector so the paving


"We're just concerned about the fact that we
are receiving no Inspection or testing of the pav-
ing and we're unsure of what we're getting be-
cause of this fact. We want to be assured that it
[paving] is properly done."
-Wewahitchka Mayor, Gene Hanlon


project can proceed. Hanlon said the board still has not come up
with an inspector and will be in special session again today
[Thursday] to consider the matter further.
The City of Wewahitchka had objected to paying the contrac-
tor partial payments for his work until his work can be inspect-
ed. As a result of this move, the contractor, C. W. Roberts Con-
struction Company of Hosford, has stopped work in
Wewahitchka until the matter 'can be ironed out and his pay-
ments can resume as agreed.
Hanlon said, 'We're not saying we're getting bad paving.
We're saying we don't know, because we aren't getting any in-
spection. Since this will be our last shot at considerable paving
for a long time, we want to be assured that it is properly done, is
all. We're just not sure of what we're getting."


High School's Music Suite

Named In Honor of Dean


Last survivor of the
famous Sousa Band
Herman Dean was five years
old when the Wright brothers
flew their contraption at Kitty
Hawk. He was 18 years old
when he played the clarinet with
John 'Phillip Souza's military
band in 1918, and he was 91
years of age when the music
suite of Port St. Joe High School
was named for him Sunday af-
ternoon.
He has the distinction of be-
ing the. last surviving member of
thieworld-ifidtis Sousa band.
A crowd of approximately
400 people came out in a driv-
ing rainstorm Sunday after-
noon, to witness the affair and
participate in a social hour
which followed the dedication
ceremony, held in the Coliseum.
MORE THAN A DIRECTOR
Dean, who served as band
director here in Port St. Joe
from 1954 until his retirement
in 1966, did more than direct
the band during his tenure.
He built a band program at
Port St. Joe High School. He
wrote a school fight song and he
wrote an alma mater for the stu-
dent body to bond with.
Dean has had a colorful ca-
reer, from serving 22 years with
the U.S. Navy prior to World
War II and another four years
during WWII.
Dean has served schools at
Marianna, Port St. Joe, Everett,
Wewahitchka and DeFuntak
' Springs. He organized bands at
Everett and Marianna and re-
vived several faltering programs
at other schools.
LAUDATORY WORDS
Dean drew the applause and
accolades of many of his former
students and many top govern-
ment leaders in our nation to-
day, including President George
Bush. President Bush sent a
congratulatory message and a
personally autographed photo-
graph, of the president, which
didn't arrive until Monday.
Other personalities sending
messages of congratulation were
Governor Lawton Chiles, Sena-
tor Bob Graham, Representative
Robert Trammell and Senator
Vince Bruner.
Congressman Pete Peterson,


More Rains!
Mother Nature is still at
work replenishing the acquifer
here in Gulf County. Another
4.69 inches of rainfall fell on
Port St. Joe from Friday
through Saturday from the
front which came through last
week end.
This precipitation, added
to the 10.45 inches of two
weeks ago, keeps building on
one of the wettest early springs
experienced here in the Pan-
handle in quite a while.
Emily Simmons had report-
ed the wettest February on
record for the more than 20
years she and her late husband
have been checking rainfall.
And, there has been more
* predicted for this coming week
end, so keep your rubber duck
handy.


Friends congratulate Mr. Dean during a reception naming the Port
St. Joe High School Music Suite in his honor.


George Roberts said at the County Commission meeting last
Tuesday that his firm was almost finished with the resurfacing
projects in Wewahitchka, but had not yet started the new paving
projects. Hanlon said the work which has been done has not
been inspected.
'There are too many unanswered questions to which we doqr't
know the answer," Hanlon said.
SOLUTION MAY NOT BE SOLUTION
Last Tuesday, the Gulf County Commission agreed to pass
on the remainder of their road paving fund, which started out as
$400,000, to the Wewahitchka Commission and let them handle
it, with the stipulation that the money be spent only for paving.
This may not prove to be a solution, however, since about 40%
of the money is already encumbered by paving work which has
already been done and there is a signed contract for the remain-
der of the money, which may have to be honored. But, accord-
ing to Hanlon, if Wewahitchka gets inspection services, that city
government may have any doubts they might have, settled.
Considering the position of the Wewahitchka City Commis-
sion and the contractor,, it seems to be a fair assumption that
there will be no more paving-at least under the present con-
tract-until the City of Wewahitchka hires itself an inspector.
In the meantime, the county paving program is moving south
to concentrate on the Beaches and the City of Port St. Joe.





Calling for



Bids On PSJ



Road Paving

City's Comp Plan Needs Some

Drainage, Density, Changes


Port St. Joe's City Commis-
sion 'gave "Gulf County's paving
program coordinator, Ralph Rish,
the green light Tuesday night, to
proceed with calling for bids for
the nearly 17 miles of road paving
which is to be performed in the
City as part of the County's $3.5
million paving program.
Rish called the Port St. Joe
project as a portion of "Phase
Three" in the three part program.
"Phase Three" also includes pav-
ing for the Beaches, Highland
View and other out-lying areas in
the south end of the county.
Rish said phase one was Con-
ty Road C-30 "which will be com-
plete within about three weeks".
Phase two is the Wewahitchka
area, which is an at impasse at
the present time.
Rish said the City of Port St.
Joe may receive more paving than
it originally thought it would un-
der the program. 'Your first list
was for 13.1 miles of resurfacing,"
Rish said. 'Your second list
boosted that mileage to around
17, and we may be able to get a
little more."
Mayor Frank Pate reminded
Rish'that the City also wanted to
make a separate contract with
the road paver while he is in the
area, to pave streets in the ceme-
teries. The City will pay for the
project in a separate contract,
but wants to have the work done
in conjunction with the street
projects to get a cheaper price per
ton of asphalt.
Rish told the Commission the
work should be under way here
in Port St. Joe by early May.
CITY'S COMP PLAN
The Department of Communi-
ty Affairs is still' on the City's
back, demanding more specific
modifications of the drainage and


County's Boat Ramps Set for Improvement


With the coming of Spring, attention just naturally seems to drift
towards things like fishing, golf, baseball, tennis, etc.
The Division of Administrative Services is cognizant of the kin-
dling interest in fishing in a state known for its fishing and released
information early this week advising all and sundry as to just what
progress they were making in the Panhandle section of Florida on re-
quests for improved boating facilities-particularly public boating
ramps.
The DAS has been requested to make several improvements to
public landings in and around Gulf County over the past few
months, some of which they have accomplished and some of which
they still have in progress. All the landing improvement work is paid
for by the county's share of the funds collected from boat and motor
registrations.
Gulf county had four landing improvements projects on their
agenda; three of which give access to the Apalachicola River. The
fourth project improves access to the Dead Lakes. Some of the pro-
jects have already been completed, and some are underway, while


others are awaiting proper water levels before work can begin.
LAUNCH SITE IMPROVEMENT PROJECTS
The several landing improvement projects in Gulf County are
identified as follows:
-Wewahitchka State Park, Dead Lakes. Ramp was extended an-
other 20 feet and ArmorForm placed on each side of the ramp. A 200
foot long channel is scheduled to be dredged to the West Arm chan-
nel, but is awaiting a receding water level before the work can be ac-
complished.
-lola Landing, Apalachicola River, ArmorForm was placed on
each side of the ramp to control erosion.
-Chipola Cutoff estates, Apachicola River. ArmorForm is to be
placed on each side of the ramp to control erosion.
-Wayside Park, Apalachicola River, at the end of the Dead Lakes
Bridge road. Reslope upland to 1:8 slope. Replace and extend water-
ward portion. This project, too, must await a lower water level in the
river before the work can be accomplished.


building density components of
the comprehensive' plan which
has been rejected by DCA. The
city's plan was prepared by Smith
and Gillespie, Engineers, of Jack-
sonville and the engineers have
notified the City the new de-
mands will cost some $5,250 to
prepare and submit to the state
agency.
Attorney William J. Rish ad-
vised the Commission Tuesday
that the Legislature is taking a
look at the DCA requirements for
plans throughout the state.
"They may have been doing
this illegally, almost forcing com-
pliance to their satisfaction, The
Legislature is now making them
adopt a set of rules for everybody
to follow," Rish told the Board.
The city's plan language
points out that fact that 90% of
the city's storm water is emptied
in St Joseph's Bay and points
out that figures pertaining to
drainage were established by a
survey in 1979, when a system
was designed to handle a 25-year
storm over a 24-hour period.
The plan also acknowledges
that no new development will in-
crease the total runoff or add new
pollutants to the bay. In other
words, holding ponds are re-
quired of new developments.
The City is using the number
of units identified on the City
map as its rule for density of
dwellings. This definition doesn't
satisfy the DCA.
DCA has sent the City's co-
prehensive document back to
Port St. Joe to be changed to
their satisfaction, but no stipula-
tion has been made as to what
might bring about that satisfac-
tion.
FIRE DEPARTMENT
The latest victim of a growing
list of state requirements, is the
volunteer fire department.
Fire Chief Stacy Price told the
Commission Tuesday night that a
state inspector will more than
likely visit the local department
for an inspection in the near fu-
ture. "He has already been to the
St. Joe Beach Department and
gave them a list of things to do or
shut the department down. I feel
it is only a matter of time before
he gets around to us," Price said.
Price said he didn't know
where Port St. Joe would be defi-
cient under the new rules. "He
hasn't been here yet to tell us,
but, judging from St. Joe Beach-
es' experience, it will be some-
where."
Price said he was just report-
ing that the choice is to either
shape up to the new demands or
shut down.

An Old Law
Nothing seems to be so rampant as tax increases these days.
Part of the increase seems to be due to governments trying to
keep expenditures humming at the same old rate while the re-
mainder of the economy is creeping along at an idle pace. Part of
this slow-down was probably due to the Persian Gulf War, but it
was a slow-down, nonetheless.
With a slow-down in the economy, tax income slows down
also. Witness the reduced income here in Gulf County from the
six cent local motor fuel tax which is causing a shortfall in the
funds needed to pay for the bond issue recently issued to per-
form paving projects throughout the county. A $27,700 per
month payment is quite a payment! The reduced tax collections
started at about the same time the problems in the Persian Gulf
began to really affect the economy here in the nation.
A $130.00 shortfall last October, when the fuel price increase
started taking off, kept on growing until it reached a peak of
$10,000. In January, the short-fall was cut by half and the
trend, hopefully, will continue. But, the fact is, when things get
uncertain, tax income gets uncertain.
Last week, Lee County Property Appraiser, Ken Wilkinson
announced that he had half the signatures he needed to place a
constitutional amendment on the 1992 ballot which would limit
property value increases on homes to three percent per year in
order to slow down the booming increases in ad valorem taxes
for home owners. Wilkinson's amendment is designed to lessen
the danger of people having to give up their homes because they
can't continue to pay the rising taxes.
The taxes are rising because the taxing authorities are trying
to maintain a pre-recession spending program by increasing tax-
es in a depressed economy.
As we have said before, Governor Lawton Chiles' spending
programs are not very popular, but his actions in cutting expen-
ditures during a depressed economy makes more sense than try-
ing to keep up the pace with tax dollars wrested from an already
hurting public.
Wilkinson will probably have all kinds of support for his
amendment to limit the rate of property value increases. The fis-
cal agent for Gulf County's road bond issue may have cut his
buffer zone too close when he was figuring just how much tax
money we could comfortably pay each month in bond payments,
so we are having to make it up with money we were already re-
ceiving, rather than go for more taxes to make more payments.
The law of supply and demand applies to tax money, also.



Needs Guidance
White City apparently is a fortunate community, with the of-
fer of free water treatment equipment for their new proposed
central distribution system. With the Sunland Park on St. Jo-
seph Peninsula shifting to the Lighthouse Utilities system which
serves the Peninsula, their treatment machinery became surplus
and has been made available to White City.
With only a 17,000 storage tank, there should be no mistak-
en assumption that a system using this treatment package
would be as efficient or produce the volume the Beach system
produces, but it will give White City the beginning of a central
source which they sorely need.
The gift, even though it could be a little larger, will save
White City considerable money which will be Identified as lower
water rates for the people in that community. The gift plant will
allow the community to get into the water business and sock
away a goodly portion of their water user rates for the purpose of
improving their system as they use it.
That's good.
There is a new responsibility which White City is going to
place on the Gulf County Commission, also. We feel the county
needs to create a water department to maintain, service and
manage all these small systems they are creating throughout the
county. With the announced trend of the state and federal gov-
ernments, the small systems will be all over the county one day
and they won't operate on their own. Someone has to be on
board to see that they operate properly.
With the Beaches, the county is lucky. Bulk water is pur-
chased from Port St. Joe, who is responsible for its proper treat-
ment and adequate supply. The distribution system is going to
need maintenance soon, however, and needs to be kept in prop-
er condition, as well as bills promptly sent and collected. These
small units need to be contributing toward furnishing this nec-
essary management and the county needs to put such an opera-
tion in place before there is too much "catch-up" to do.


IHunker Down with Kes


Our Cup Runneth Over


"Jake, I dunno, I think they're
closer to the other side."
"Maybe so, we can ride back
around there and listen."
We had time. Moose was way
the heck off somewhere looking
for his dogs. Of course, it was his
dogs we were listening to. We'd
picked up Whitey and Ollie Reb
an hour ago. I have smart dogs.
They'd gone in the woods, looked
around at all the water, knew I
wouldn't want to come in there
for them even if they tree'd, so
they moseyed back and forth a
bit to make it look like they were
hunting and then they strolled
out to the road.
We'd picked up Jake's dogs a
few minutes later. Moon came out
soaking wet, shook himself off
and gave us the I-can't-believe-
you-sent-us -in-there-without-a-
snorkel look.
"Jake, it's too wet to hunt."
"I know, but it's better than
watching T.V."
It had been too wet for a
month. Of course, the first half of
the year it had been too dry. It
was almost as if someone high up
was a'pulling for the coons.
We drove to the other side of
the block.


"I still dunno, now they seem
closer back where we were."
Jake strained an ear toward
the distant barking, "They're just
about in the middle."
"It probably will start raining
before we can get in there." I said
it in jest but I glanced up to see if
I could spot a star or two. With
the rain we've been having lately,
anything was possible.
Moose phoned in. He was a
block away, he couldn't get his
four-wheeler across a wash out -
he would have to drive all the way
around...... "but if Sally's barking,
she's got something, ya'll start on
in there, don't wait on me."
"Jake, you notice how the
rain brings out the mosquitoes?"
"Big suckers; and mean. For
entertainment on Saturday nights
a couple of them fly over to
Greenhead and lift alligators out
of the bog." He was pulling up his
hip boots.
"Jake, we ain't going to wait
for Moose? Our dogs are in the
box!"
We were half way in to the
dogs when he mentioned the
ditch. "It's usually dry, but with
all this rain, there might be a lit-


lIe water in It. I hope the dogs are
on this side."
They weren't. Sally was bark-
ing In a hole on the far bank.
Gabby-Gabby-Doo was Just run-
ning bark and forth, barking. The
ditch was about 20 feet wide. And
it looked like the Nile River dur-
ing the flood season.
I gave Jake the most disdain-
ful look I could muster, 'You call
this a little water!"
We called the. dogs, we
begged, we pleaded, we fussed,
we shouted, we fired the gun, we
made coon noises. They won't
come to Moose when he's got
chopped liver in both hands, I
don't know why we thought they
might come to us. They weren't
going to swim that raging stream.
'We've got to figure a way to
get over there." Jake was eyeing a
small straight tree on our side of
the river. He figured that he could
puslis it over a little, I could jump
up, grab a hold, and as my
weight brought it down, I could
hand walk it over to the other
side.
'You call that a plan! Those
crazy dogs don't even have a
coon. They are barking at the

ground! They're not even our
dogs. Let's go tell Moose to come
.in and get......"
Jake was bending the tree, I
jumped up and started across.
My weight was a little more than
we figured on. My feet were under
water. As I inched across, sinking
deeper into the stream, I got to
thinking bout that movie, The
Creature From The Black Lagoon.
That thing just swam right up out
of the water and got people.
My arms were getting tired.
The wet boots were pulling me
ever downward. ,
'You're about across, Kes."
I was about to let go, fall into
this river, be eaten by the crea-
ture, never to be seen again and
my dogs are up on the road in the
box.
!'Jake, there's a mosquito on
my nose."
'Tell him to flap his wings
and fly South." He was down on
his knees, laughing.
I moved closer ,to the far
shore kicking water and? pulling
on that tree. Gabby heard me.
Don't let the name fool you. He's
vicious. And Moose has trained
him to attack anything that drops
out of a tree.
I hope they play Unclouded
Day at my funeral.
Next Week: The Creature or
the Dog?
Respectfully,
Kesley

ETAOIN SHRDLU By: Wesley R. Ramsey



Varner Robins Was A Town of the Couth and the Uncouth


AFTER A YEAR at Perry, a
baby came along and I started to
work nights, also, with the War-
ner Robins Press which was just
installing a shop to print its
newspaper.
*In Warner Robins, I really
met some characters.
It was in Warner Robins that
I saw my first march by the Ku
Klux Klan. It came one night,
while we were working on the
paper, with a group of about 50
marching down Watson Boule-
vard, the main street of Warner
Robins, right in front of the news-
paper plant. A crowd of white
people hooted and shouted at the
Klansmen, which made them re-
tort in threatening language. But,
they held their ranks, for protec-
tion and bravado as much as
anything else, and ran the gaunt-
let of white people, who greatly
out-numbered the Klansmen and


were giving them a hard time.
So far as I know, the Klan
didn't march in Warner Robins
any more.

TO PUT IT BLUNTLY, War-
ner Robins was a frontier town
with a frontier mentality. They
started as a town about the size
of Highland View, with a railroad
siding, and grew into one of the
larger cities in Georgia.
Let me tell you, Warner Rob-
ins had its characters.
There was a genuine saloon
row, down on first street which
stayed open all night.
it was a town of couth and
uncouth.

BUT, LET ME introduce you
to some of the characters who in-
habited the Warner Robins Press.
After a while at part-time
work, I was hired, full-time, at
the ripe old age of 22, to run their
production department.


I had Edith Clark in the front
office. Edith was your genuine
Miss Magnolia, southern belle.
She was very pretty, with a drip-
ping honey southern brogue.
Our competition was the War-
ner Robins Sun. The Sun was Foy
Evans. He lived in the YMCA in
Macon and his newspaper was a
portable typewriter in the back
seat of his car. He took his paper
to Dublin, Georgia to have it
printed. He eventually sprouted
out in Warner Robins and made
several million, became Mayor,
sold the paper to a chain after it
became a sizeable daily and was
one of the first offset produced
papers in Georgia. Foy went to
school with Netta Niblack of Port
St. Joe.
Foy had humble beginnings,
and he was also smitten by Edith,
as were several other men about
town. We kept up with Foy since
he was in our place nearly every
day, hanging over the counter for
about an hour on each visit.


Edith later married the bank
manager. Her favorite expleUve,
given with a broad smile, was,
'You Dawhg, you!"
There was Al Harris, the ad
salesman. Al was a small, wiry,
dark Italian looking man. Al ap-
preciated Edith's Southern-ness,
but he was married, too.
There was Leon Ozmore. Leon
was a tanker in World War II,
who had a couple shot out from
under him. When he mustered
out of the Army, he went straight
to the Navy and signed up in the
reserves. He said, "If I have to go
back, I'm not going to get my a--
in another one of those [expletive
deleted] tanks! Leon took a nine
month course in Nashville on how
to operate a Linotype and learned
only how to turn it on and off pro-
ficiently. He liked to eat ancho-
vies straight out of the can. Leon
was my Linotype operator.
There was Billy Funderburk,
fresh out of high school and a


couple of years with the T7fton Ga-
zette. who ran our newspaper
press. Billy lived in a hotel down
the street and was always late to
work always
Lad Kirkland worked on the
base during the day and with us
at night His main duties were to
bring in new stories every day-
Joke stories, not news stories. Lad
did most of our machinery main-
tenance. He was a short, rotund
man with a constant laugh. He
used to call one of the owners
"Paddlefoot" because of the way
he walked.
This particular owner was
Lewis Smith, a rambling wreck,
and the head electrician for Rob-
ins Air Force Base.
The other owner was Dan
Grahl, a former Georgia Repre-
sentative, a University of Georgia
"Bulldog" and the flight control
chief of the air base. Dan was
happy-go-lucky and Lewis was
serious. Dan didn't care what


lime or what day it was. if he
wanted to spend some time hav-
ing a good time, he did it, while
the rest of us wrestled with meet-
ing deadlines.

WE PRINTED THE newspa-
per and also the Air Force base
newspaper, which had Johnny
Hart of "B.C." fame, on its staff.
Johnny was the staff artist and
he was a good one. The pictures
he draws in "B.C" aren't indica-
tive of the kind of artist he is. He
is good!
After about a year, the part-
ners bought out the Fort Valley
Leader-Tribune, which was in an-
other of those "Perry" towns.
It then fell my lot to go back
and forth between both plants,
and run both at the tender:
age of 24.
It wasn't because of my abili-
ty, I don't think, as much as it
was my willingness to work 12 to
16 hours a day, six days a week.

Some Things I Dont

Understand About the War
Let the record show that I'm very pleased about the results of
"Desert Storm." It all happened just the way I knew it could, provid-
ed everyone pulled the rope the same way.
There are a few things, however, that I don't understand about
the recent war we fought and won in the Middle East. I don't under-
stand:
*Why couldn't we have pulled together and won in View Nam
like we did in the Persian Gulf crisis. Heathen interference, I think.
*Why iq Saddam Hussein still taking up a living human being's
place in the world?
*Why do all those people over there look alike and blink their
eyes a lot? They hear a lot of gun fire and bombs exploding might
be an explanation.
*Why do all the men and many of the women wear mus-
taches in Iraq? Is it's the mustache will filter the dust out of the
air when they breathe? I've noticed that they all have big noses, too.
*If Iraqi soldiers are so tough, why were they surrendering to
photographers? Do you think they would have surrendered to a
small troop of Girl Scouts? I do.
*Why do all those people always bend down and kiss the
ground? Are they practicing getting killed?
*Why is Saddam Hussein still running his mouth in Baghdad?
*Why don't we let General Schwarzkopf and Saddam fight it
out, man to man?
*Why didn't we settle up the score with Iran while we were over
there? They've had a little mouth diarrhea in the past. Now would
be a good timhe to tell them to put up or shut up!
*Why does it make me feel so good to see someone like Saddam
ask for it and get more than he ever thought possible? But why
does he still breathe and speak with "forked-tongue?"
*How long will the people of Kuwait remember what the allied
forces did for them. A couple of months after we get everything re-
built for them, you think?
*Why do people over there kiss instead of saluting and shaking
hands? I would like to see one of them try to kiss General Schwarz-
kopf or spit on him.
*And finally, now that we have taught the Iraqis a good lesson
in warfare, where will it break out next? Also, it scares me to think
that Saddlam Hussein is feeling good at this very moment!
Saddam is a chicken and his momma wears army boots!


Signs Cost Tax Money


Dear Editor:
I am writing this letter to let
the taxpayers of Gulf County
know how'to save some money!.
"Report All Sign VandSlism
That You See1. We. are spending.
* thousands of,.dollars a year on.
unnecessary signs. We have a
man putting up signs everyday of
the week year round. A few days
after we put up signs, reports
come in where signs are missing
or run over. We then have to dou-
ble back and put up new signs
again.
Did you know that the price
for the green street signs are
$12.50 each. The posts are $8.58
each. The fold out barricades are
$32.65 each. The 30-inch stop
signs when bought 50 at a time
are $17.98 each and when
bought 25 at a time are $20.50
each. The 24-inch stop signs
when bought 50 at a, time are
$11.98 each and when bought 25
at a time are $13.50 each. Also
you haye to add the price of the
labor it takes to replace the sign.
So you can see when Just one
sign is run over or stolen, it can
cost a lot of money to replace.
So please report any vandal-
ism that you see and let's put a
stop top this unnecessary spend-
ing.
Thank you,
Bobby Knee
Assistant Supervisor

"I Quit"
Dear Editor,
I have served as Commander
of the Gulf County Search and
Rescue Squad for the past several
years to the best of my ability.
But due to the recent turmoil of a
few of the squad members and
some of the commissioners, I feel
that I should tender my resigna-
tion as Commander of the Squad.
Effective immediately,
If I have offended anyone or
hurt anyone's feelings about any-
thing in the past, I sincerely offer
my apologies. I would also like to
offer all those who served with me
and gave me their support in the
past, my deepest appreciation.
'Sincerely, "
Jimmy Barfield

A 'War Prayer'
Dear Editor:
The "An Uneasy Peace" edito-
rial in last week's Star brought to
my mind a movie I'd seen several
years ago including another war
prayer.
Throughout history most bat-
tle leaders on both sides weren't
"about to leave God (or gods) out
of their preparation for battle".
They wanted to enlist God to be
on their side; for Him to
"...intervene on the outcome of
the battle". Each army has
claimed that "God is on our side".
I'm not trying to discourage
the practice of calling on God, but
when you pray for victory, you
pray for many unmentioned re-
sults which cannot help but fol-
low victory. Herein follows the
'War Prayer" by Mark Twain.
"Oh Lord, our Father, our-
young patriots, idols of our
hearts, go forth to battle. Be Thou
near them. With them in spirit,
we also go forth from the sweet
peace of our beloved firesides to
... SMITE the foe. Oh Lord, our

tion.

God, help us to tear their soldiers
to bloody shreds with our shells.
Help us to cover their cover their
smiling fields with the form of
their patriot dead. Help us to
drown the thunder of the guns
with the shrieks of their wounded
rising in pain, Help us to lay
waste their humble homes with
the hurricane of fire. Help us to
wring the hearts of their unof-
fending widows with unavailing
grief. Help us to turn them out
roofless with their children ... to
wander unfriended the waste of
their desolated land in rags and'
hunger and thirst, sport of the
sudden flames of summer and
the icy winds of winter, broken in
spirit, worn with travail.....
For our sakes, who adore
Thee, blast their hopes, blight
their lives; track their bitter pil-
grimage; make heavy their steps.
Water their way with tears. Stain
the white snow with the blood of
their wounded feet.
We ask it in the spirit of love
of Him who is the source of love,
and who is the ever faithful friend
of those who are sore beset and
who seek His aid with humble
and contrite heart. AHMEN."
Mark Twain
It's to our credit that we treat-
ed EPWS with such good care
when they came to us.
Sincerely,
Sandy Hynes

Asks Question
Dear Editor,
This letter is to the old and
young. I went to a city meeting
with my parents. We went be-
cause we did not want our park
taken away. This man stood up
and talked about some man's
dream of a center for the elderly.
They want to cut the trees that
we climb, take the place that we
hide Easter eggs and where we
play. They want to put this build-
ing in this park. When they build
that center it won't be a park any
more. I know grandma's and
grandpa's need a fun place to go
too. But does this mean they
have to take away ours? My
Granny would not want to take
this away from children. My
teachers and parents tell us that
we are the future of this country.
If I had a vote it would be to save
the park. I hope that the St. Joe
Paper Company will want to save
the park too.

Carina Patterson, a sixth
grade student at Wewahitchka
Elementary School, spelled her
way to a second consecutive
county spelling championship on
Wednesday, March 13. This
year's county bee was held in the
newly refurbished band room at
Port St. Joe High School and was
very short in duration.
After two rounds of words,
the field had been narrowed to
the champ, Carina, and Christina
Egler, a Port St Joe seventh
grader. Eleven words later Chris-
tina misspelled "auxiliary," which
was then spelled correctly by Ca-
rina. Carina then spelled the next
word on the pronouncer's list,
wavinesss," for her second cham-
pionship in as many years.
Other school champs partici-
pating in the bee were Karen

Kayce Knox, Port St. Joe Elemen-

.. CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM

Bedwetting

By
Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.




What is bedwetting? It will be defined differently depending on
who you ask. Generally, "the Involuntary passage of urine during
sleep more than once a month." This is usually in a child who has
never been completely dry. If a child has been dry for months or
years and then begins wetting it will probably be either an urinary
infection or an emotional problem.
Statistically, 15% of 5 year old, 10% of 6 year old, 7% of 8 year
old, 3% of 12 year old and 1% of 18 year old patients will wet the
bed.
Bedwetting runs in families it is inherited. Probably this has
to do with small bladder capacity and nerve signals.
A child needs to be about eight years old before he is able to
cooperate with a program to stretch out his bladder so it can hold
enough urine for him to go through the night dry. Unfortunately,
sometimes a lot of emotional problems develop before eight years of
age because of the way the problem has been handled in the family.
Children should not be criticized, punished, blamed or restricted
because of bedwetting and parents should never allow another child
to tease because of bedwetting.
The beds needs to be prepared so the mattress will not be
'soaked, and the child should not sleep in wet clothes. This involves
plastic sheets, soaker pads and protective underpants.
Anywhere around eight years of age (or as young as six in an
extremely motivated child) bladder stretching exercises can be
'started. One a day the child should hold his urine just as long as
:he can, he should urinate into a measuring container. The amount
'of urine should be recorded and the urine then discarded.
A child will usually need to be able to hold 10 to 12 ounces of
'urine in this bladder before he can go through the night dry. En-
"couragement and rewards should be planned. If he holds as long as
,possible and has moved the amount of urine retained from three to
-ounces. That is progressill
Occasionally there are children who have a normal bladder ca-
'pacity and are dry in the daytime. These children should be encour-
aged to increase the strength of the urinary muscle by starting and
Stopping during urination.
There are a few other reasonable plans parents can put into a
program for a child. A reasonable amount of liquids should be al-
lowed at supper and in the evening, but a child should not be al-
lowed to overload on liquids at these times. Have the child urinate
just before going to bed. She should start the night with an empty
bladder.
Getting a child up to urinate before the parents go to bed will
help keep a dry bed, but as many of you know these children are of-
ten so deeply asleep they are still urinating while asleep.
Patience and encouragement are advocated before the child is
eight years old. After eight years of age a program of bladder
stretching can be effective if the child is cooperative.

THINK ON THESE THINGS
You can not successfully combat error by condoning it,
going along with it, closing your eyes to it and pretending it
doesn't exist.
The more you learn to love the Lord, the more you learn
to hate sin.
Life is like a stone. Whether it grinds a man down or pol-
ishes him to a nice finish depends on what kind of stuff he is
made of.
It is not wise to tell everything you know, but it is wise to
know everything you tell.
The time to teach obedience to authority is in the play
pen, not the state pen.
If you do not have the time to help your children find the
right way of life, somebody with more time will help them
find the wrong way.
Too many modem fathers seem more concerned about
their swing than their offspring.
The time to protect against the electric chair is while the
child is still in the high chair.
Invest in eternity. The dividends are out of this world.

Good Relationships Bring

More Meaning to Our Lives


Relationships with God and
with other people bring meaning
to our lives. Good relationships
give joy and poor relationships
cause sorrow and loneliness.
Successful relationships are
essential for successful living. If.
you have stable relationships
based on mutual concerns, your
life will tend to be more reward-
ing. But if your relationships cen-
ter only on personal gratification,
without reciprocal concern, they
will tend to be frustrating and
stress producing.
If you find yourself in a bad
relationship, chances are great
that you, or your partner in the
relationship, originally cultivated
that relationship for the wrong
reasons.
Sometimes good relationships
go sour as time goes on. But if
that is the case, someone has lost
sight of the crucial concerns that
made the union possible to begin
with.
Relationships must be care-
fully constructed and continuous-
ly maintained. Several elements
ought be added to the foundation
of mutual concern. There must be
desire, shared values, intimacy,
honesty, nurture, and fulfillment.
If any of these vital elements
are missing or uncultivated, the
relationship will be to some de-
gree unrewarding. Rapport and
mutual affection will eventually
degenerate and the relationship
will falter, or perhaps fail com-
pletely.
At the center of all relation-
ships is your relationship with
God. If it is out of kilter, all of
your other relationships will be
flawed.
Your union with God has a
need for all of the elements men-
tioned above. It begins with his
love and desire for you. It gains
life when you respond and it ma-
tures as you adopt godly values,
develop honesty, and reveal your
most intimate thoughts and feel-
ings.
It is your responsibility to
keep any valued relationship
growing. If your emotional bond-
ing isn't strong, your relationship
will show it. You will not be deep-
ly involved and your reduced level
of concern will form a breach. in
your relationship's vital sustain-
ing bond.
If a relationship -is-really Im-
portant, you will be emotionally
involved, and show it. You will fo-
cus on the elements that build

tripper in the fourth inning and
Shannon Miller slammed a three

Gator runs.
Lester started on the mound
for the Gators and pitched three

Denny McGlon, who finished the
game.
The Gators nipped Liberty

Planning to
Retire Soon?
Check Your S.S.

People who plan to retire this
year may want to call about their
plans soon. Effective in 1991
there has been a change in the
Social Security law that may limit
the start of benefits to the month
the person actually retires, mak-
ing it more important than it
used to be to notify Social Secur-
ity of plans to retire.
Depending on their earnings,
some people may still be able to
get additional benefits by apply-
ing for Social Security early in the
year, even though they won't be
retiring until later in the year.
If we are contacted early in
the year, we can look at current
earnings and benefit information
that can help you choose the
most advantageous time to start
your benefits. 4

Japanese Tea Ceremony
in Third Grade
During the two week unit on
Japan, the children participated
in a multitude of activities such
as: map skills, Haiku, Japanese
-character painting, lantern mak-
ing, comprehension pages, Japa-
nese heritage, geography, and
traditions. The classrooms also
had a guest speaker who had just
gotten back from Japan. She
brought in all sorts of treasures.
Then on Friday, the children ate
at low tables on the floor and had
Japanese tea, which is strong
and not sweet, rice, and a chick-
en dish (brought in from the
Oriental Inn). The children ate
with chopsticks, read their for-
tune cookies, and will be getting a
fan this week. We also say won-
derful videos about Japan. The
children all say they would like to
go there and our visitor, Miss La-
vinia Maples, is ready to go back.
Dinosaur T-Shirts & Cookies
During a two week study on
dinosaurs, the first graders have
been learning all about our pre-
historic past Then for fun, the

The Ant Farm

were an ant. Here is Russell
Knee's story.
"Me, the Ant"


"So, I'm free running around,
see, and this guy comes and
picks me up and puts me in a
freezer So then I'm frozen solid.
Then all the guys start talking
about an order. So the next thing
I know, I'm in some kind of tube.
Then I'm in this big green thing
with glass around it. So me and
the other guys start digging see. I
don't know what for. But we just
do it. We're digging a tunnel here
and a tunnel there. And changing
them all the time. Yeah, and
when we got there, there were a
whole bunch of dead ants. Oh,


yeh an hr a hsoelv


yeah, and there was this one live
ant. He died of excitement! Then
we took over So me and the guys
watched little ant TV's for the rest
of our lives."
