City Gets Grant


to Rehab Housing


for Elderly, Poor
The City of Port St. Joe received notification Tuesday,
that a Community Development Block Grant request, in the
amount of $434,700, had been approved by the Depart-
ment of Community Affairs.
The grant had been requested by the City Commission
for several years, for the purpose of rehabilitating homes of
elderly and poor people who could not upgrade their degen-
erated housing by their own resources.
The grant was requested, in the City's behalf, by Julian
Webb, Associates, of Chipley.
According to the grant award notice, Port St. Joe was'
number f"291xi list of approved grants. There had been
44 requests filed for some $36,970,420 available to fund
Block Grant programs.
Webb had told the Cit Commission on numerous occa-
sions that Port St. Joe couldn't generate enough points to
be eligible for many grants. He had been filing the housing
re-hab request for about three years before it was consid-
ered. 'You have several strikes against you for receiving
grants, the least of which seems to be the fact that your av-
erage citizen just seems to make too much money to quali-
fy."-
$14.8 MILLION AVAILABLE
Community Affairs Secretary Bill Sadowski said a total
of $14,858,336 of the $37 million grant money available,
was awarded in the lower-income housing development
granting program.
The Florida Community Development Block Grant
[CDBG] program provides grants to small cities and
counties to undertake housing, neighborhood revitalization,
commercial revitalization, and economic development activi-
ties. This year 277 local governments were eligible to com-
pete for a total of $36,970,420 in federal assistance funds.
Large cities and counties receive Community Development
Block Grant funds directly from the U.S. Department of
Housing and Urban Development.
ANOTHER REQUEST REJECTED
The City had filed for another grant for recreational pur-
poses, which was rejected recently because of lack of quali-
fying points. The funding had been requested to develop
and improve recreational facilities in the city.
DCA officials predict that the total funding will provide
money to rehabilitate some 750 homes in the state. The
agency said that 40 homes which are beyond repair, will be
replaced.
The grant program which funded the Port St. Joe re-
quest was available for the 1990-1991 funding cycle.
Several, applications for home rehabilitation funds had
been filed for Port St. Joe in past years, but all had been
turned down.


Lost Control

S' According to Trooper B. L. Upchurch of the Florida High-
way Patrol, Johnson said it seemed as if the fifth wheel on
his truck locked, causing the trailer to begin shifting and
him to lose control. The 1981 Peterbilt tractor and trailer
overturned in the middle of the highway about a mile and a
half west of Highland View, spilling its load of logs all across
the highway, blocking traffic. The mess took nearly two
hotiurs to clear away.
SThe truck was considered a total loss. There were no oth-
er vehicles involved.

S.' tion has been listed as "very good", by hospital authorities.

County Attorney Bob
Moore, advised the Commis-
sion, "You take a chance at
losing 'a whole bunch' if you
fight the density point."


Mike Dorsey's
Body Found
A turkey hunter found the
body of Mike Dorsey early last
Thursday morning, where it
had surfaced in the Apalachico-
la, after being under water
since January 26.
Dorsey disappeared in the
waters of the river after he ap-
parently lost his balance step-
ping from a shrimp boat into a
skiff being towed alongside.
Dorsey and some friends were
transporting the shrimp boat to
Wewahitchka. When they came
to Fort Gadsden State Park,
Dorsey started to go ashore to
phone home, telling his family
they would arrive in Wewa-
hitchka later than planned.
Dorsey's. body was located
Just below the Fort Gadsden
landing. He had been the sub-
ject of an intense search for
many days after his disappear-
ance and Sheriffs deputies
were still making daily runs in
the area, searching for Dorsey's
remains.


Wells Says State Asking Gulf to

"Go Beyond"HRS Septic Tank Rules


'You had six pages of demerits,
which were all settled. If you op-
pose the density suggestion at
your hearing next week, you
stand a chance of having the en-
tire six pages of criticisms resur-
rected in exchange for a 50-50
chance at changing their density
suggestions.
'You have only two choices,
surrender or fight I'm just telling
you that if you fight, there's no
telling what limbs you might lose.
I'm telling you this so you will
know what you are getting into,"
Moore said.
-The only place where Moore
and Wells had a difference of
opinion was that Moore felt the
density designation could be
changed when the situation al-
lows for it. Wells, who has worked
with developing the .plan for the
past five years, felt the county
would have to live with the densi-
ty designation, no matter what it

Resumed

Schedule
St. Joe Forest Prod-
ucts Company resumed
full operation of its paper
mill here in Port St. Joe
Wednesday.
The mill had shut
down one of its two paper
machines three and a half
weeks ago, with a reduc-
tion in force during the
downtime, due to the con-
dition of the economy.
Vice-President Robert
Nedley said. the company
would keep an eye on the
order situation in the days
to come.


happens -to be.
Moore pointed out that larger
counties have higher density al-
lowances "because they have the
infrastructure to support it.
Namely; water and sewer sys-
tems."
Wells pointed out that Gulf
County had asked for a density of
only 20 units, where the ameni-
ties would substantiate the allow-
ance. "We weren't interested in
asking for wall-to-wall high rises
on our beaches," Wells said.
The administrative assistant
said the planning committee still
felt the state should require no
more than HRS requires for issu-
ing septic tank permits, which is
four units per acre. He reiterated
that he thought the DCA was also
'coming around' to that thought
"It's your decision," Wells
said. "I want you to give me direc-
tions as to how far I can go at our
hearing next Thursday and Fri-
day with DCA to iron out our dif-
ferentes."
The Commission grumbled,
(See COMMISSION on Page 5).


Administrative Assistant
Larry Wells advised, "I can
see them softening on the
point."


It may have appeared as if
* Administrative Assistant Lary
Wells and County Attorney Bob
Moore, were at odds over whether
or not the County Commission
should surrender an important
point in their Comprehensive
Plan to the state of Florida DCA
Tuesday. morning. They were not,
however. Wells was giving his as-
sessment of how probable it
might be to get more liberal
guidelines in the matter of hous-
ing density and attorney Moore
was advising what could happen
if the DCA doesn't soften its posi-
tion, causing the matter to go to
the hearing process.
Gulf County has had its plan
rejected because the Planning
Committee has requested a densi-
ty allowance of four living units
per acre along the seashore, and
up to 20, where sewer and water
systems are available. The state
has suggested there will be no
more than two without central
sewer and water and four with
the sanitary services.
Wells, stated to the Board,
Tuesday, "their proposed require-
ments are more stringent than
HRS septic tank rules. We feel
their position is weakening on
this question and that they will
eventually compromise to adopt
the state septic tank regulations
for density."
Sewer and water services are
at the root of the density ques-
tion, with the state wanting to
limit housing units, severely,
where septic tanks are necessary.
A housing 'unit' could be a two-
room apartment in a large build-
ing, or a 40-room single family
dwelling.
The Commission seemed in-
clined to ask for a more elastic
policy, but Moore pointed out,
"The only beach property not'
presently served by a central wa-
ter system-which allows for four
units per acre-are at Indian
Pass and Simmons Bayou. It's
not like you were choking up a
large area of property."
The attorney went on to say,


Come Tumbling Down
The Florida Department of Transportation started demo-
lition work this week, clearing buildings from the right-of-
way for the new Highland View high rise bridge.
Three business houses on Highway 98, in the path of the
bridge, were vacated in February in preparation for the dem-
olition and workers started knocking down the old Johnson
Lumber building Tuesday morning.
Other buildings standing on the right-of-way were Skip-
per's Gulf Station and Wood's Seafood Market. All are sched-
uled for demolition.
According to the DOT time schedule for the bridge con-
struction, bids are to be let in late spring on the project,
with construction to begin within 90 days after the contract
is let.
State DOT crews have been at work since last fall survey-
ing, mapping, taking soil borings and general preparation for
work to begin on the actual construction.
The bridge is scheduled to be built on the west side of
the present clam shell draw bridge. The elevated roadway
will come back down to ground level just before the Second
Street intersection in Highland View.

meetings, members of city government from other cities would
slip up to us and ask, "How do you do it in Port St. Joe? How do
you provide what you do so consistently, with such apparent
ease?"
Well, of course, it wasn't easy. Too, these men, active in gov-
ernment, knew Port St. Joe operates a City which is very sound
fiscally, has little to no debt and does it all without having to re-
sort to state and federal government hand-outs with their myri-.;
ad of strings attached.
Most of the expertise can be credited to old country boy.,
Frank Pate. He may peddle gasoline and tires for a living, but let
us tell you, he is no dummy. He knows how to get things done
and he has been getting it done-right-for over 20 years. We,
for one, were relieved when Pate said he would attempt to stay at
his post for at least two more years.


It's Our Fault

One of the reasons people are wary of what their government
tells them, is the current battle over an increased tax for the'.
Northwest Florida Water Management District. No doubt, you
have read or seen on TV where a 20-fold tax increase is being
planned for the district.
All of this is being done after the concept of a water manage-
ment district was sold to the people of Northwest Florida on the .
basis that it would "require only a .05 mill rate to operate.".
That's a nickel on every $T1,000 worth of taxable property. Well,
we could stand that, so we voters here in the panhandle of FIori-
da put our stamp of approval on the idea, expecting to pay only,-
the .05 tax rate.
Now, we're told the .05 is not near enough to operate the wa-
ter management district. The tax rate must now be hiked to $1
for every $1,000 worth of taxable property.
All of this must come by a Constitutional Amendment, so we
are stuck. We will have to pay the larger rate, whether we wish
to or not. "How?" you say. Well; let's look at it. The lawmakers
tell us that we are now being financed by other districts in the
state and their $1 rate. Voting on the matter as a Constitutional
Amendment will cause those people in the other four districts to
stroke their chins and say, 'You know; it isn't fair for those'
folks to pay less to their water district than I do mine; especially
since mine has to subsidize theirs!"
So, before you know it, the rest of the state will decide that
our taxes need to be raised and the people will add another
notch in that string of distrust in their government because they
were told one thing and here comes something else altogether
different. And, the beautiful thing about it is, that the lawmak-`:
ers can say, "the people did it, when they voted for that Consti-
tutional Amendment!" We suppose we should- all live in Gulf .
County where the government pays no attention to the people's
opinion expressed through ballots.

The Last Chapter to A 45-Year-Old Tale of Toil


THIS IS THE last chapter of
a young fool getting into the
newspaper business.
About the time the adventure
of ,unnlng two newspapers began
to be pure drudgery, I had an of-
fer to go to work for the Macon
Telegraph as a linotype operator.
In Macon, I would have to be a
member of the Typographers Un-
ion in order to work there and I
had gone to the Telegraph and
taken my test A couple of days
later, they informed me I had
passed and could go to work as
soon as I could serve out a notice
to the Leader-Tribune and The
Warner Robins Press.
But, alas and alack, W. S.
Smith, my employer of high
school days here at The Star
wrote me a letter, saying, "I'm
tired of working and ready to re-
tire. Do you want to buy The
Star?" -


Well, I figured he knew my
bank account was always run-
ning on empty, so I surmised that
if he thought I could buy The
Star, then I must be able to buy
it, so I wrote back, immediately,
saying in effect, "Heck yes!"
SO, I ABANDONED the pros--
pects of working 40 hours a
week, with all the attending bene-
fits, at a nice salary and started
making arrangements to buy The
Star.
Back then, the only redeem-
ing factor it had was a nearly new
Linotype machine-which, by the
way, still operates very well-an
automatic printing press and an
apartment in the building.
The unredeeming factors in-
cluded several years of the owner
discouraging business and driv-
ing it elsewhere, a wood heater, a
building that leaked and a water
heater you had to light every time
you wanted hot water. It also had
a muscle-power paper cutter---.


which we still have-and one old
hand operated printing press that
was. at least 80 years old.
The old newspaper press had
already broken down several
times and was not being 'made
any more. There were no parts
available and, even then, it had a
cranky set of drive gears which
might operate and they might
not. It wasn't long before they
spilled all their teeth out on the
floor and died
Along with the shop came a
crippled World War II veteran
red-headed printer from Chicago.
He was full-blobded Chicago. He
even pronounced the word, "She-
caw-gah". He was married to a
former showgirl of the nightclub
era, who had since gone to seed. .
They were both genuine charac-
ters; fleshing out the propensity
to run into characters in this
business.
I JUST KNEW that all I had
to do was to come to Port St. Joe,


walk into the bank [there was
only one lending institution here
then], tell, them I wanted to buy
The Star, and to do so, I would
need to borrow so much money..
You' know what? They said,
"Nol"
I couldn't believe that any
self-respecting bank would pass
up an opportunity like that, just
because I didn't have any collat-
eral other than a mortgage on The
Star.
Since that time, The Star has
been accepted .as collateral on
several occasions. Come to find
out, banks often lent only '50% of
collateral value to 25-year-olds
with wild dreams of getting into
the publishing business.
But, after explaining my pre-
dicament to Smith, and telling
him it looked like I would just
have to pass up this golden op-
portunity to. purchase his leaky
building full of ancient, worn-out
equipment, he decided to "make
me a deal." He offered to finance'


the place for me. himself.
To be fair, the place wasn't a
leaky building full of worn-out
equipment to him. It was his life's
work. Since there was no other
way I could buy it, he did me a
big favor by offering to do the fi-
nancing himself.
We struck a deal, and I was
the proud owner of a weekly
newspaper and print shop of my
very own, with its very own, king-
size mortgage to be paid on every
month.
IT DIDN'T TAKE long before
I realized I was among birds of a
feather here in Port St. Joe.
There was Glenn Boyles with
a new department store, Earl
Atchison with a new men's store,
Ganrion Buzzett with a new drug
store, Charles Garraway with a
new Chevrolet store, Durel Brig-
man with a new furniture store,
John Blount with a new furniture
store, Emmett Daniell with a new
grocery store along with sev-


eral others. Most of these guys
were in the same boat I was. We
were up to our eyeballs in debt,
so we could commiserate togeth-
er, work like the mischief and
h9pe it would all come out like we
wanted.
Let me. tell you, without em-
broidering the matter one little bit
. it has been one, long, hard,
39 years to this point. I don't
mind telling you that there were
times I wondered if I would make
it this far. One of those times was
in the 50's, when the paper mill
was operating only two or three
days a week, in maybe two weeks
out of the month ... or in 1971,
when the men went on strike at
the mill for nearly a year or
again in the 50's, when St Joe
Lumber's large sawmill shut
down.
Still, I'm glad I decided to
take Bill Smith's offer, rather
than go to work at a 40-hour-a-
week job, at good pay, with the
Macon Telegraph.

If It Were Up to Me
Have you ever thought about how things would be if you could
run the whole show? Have you ever said, "I'll tell you what I would
do if it were up to me"?
I've said it a thousand times, at least As a matter of fact, I said
it just a little while ago. My wife and I were discussing something
and, without thinking, out it came.
As I was driving back to my office I began to think about what I
said. Would I really do what I said I would do, if it really was up to
me? What if everything was up to me? I mean decisions I made
would be carried out without hesitation. What would I decide and
dictate? I
Thought.4 began to flow like a fresh mountain stream rushing to
the sea. Below are a few things I would do... if it were up to me:
*There would be no more hate in the world. People like Saddam
Hussein would be forever banned from the face of the earth. Life
would be like it is in some of those old-time movies. And that would
be nice, I think.
*There would be no more serious illness or tragic accidents. I
haven't yet decided how people would die, but there must be a bet-
ter way than prolonged suffering or dying in-a tragic accident
*Everyone would have all the money they ever wanted. My
thinking is that if everyone had all the money they ever wanted,
money would 'mean very little so no matter how much any one per-
son had, it wouldn't be worth a plug-nickel. And that would sorta
put everyone na an even keel.
*We could eat all we wanted of anything we wanted and not
gain an ounce. I would keep plenty of seafood gumbo on hand, a big
pot of chicken and dumplings on the stove and a freezer full of
cherry vanilla ice cream. I would also keep some cakes and pies on
hand in case someone had a "snack-attack." "*'

Those guys woke up ready to

talk. The first person who moved

Three points and it was "skin a

didn't like Dad's Favorite Game.,
Not enough action.
"Let's wi'estle, Dad!" Jess usu-

find out. Please write to our offi-

CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM



S Be Prevented By

SKeeping Baby Dry


", Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

It used to be thought that the irritation from ammonia in the
diaper caused the irritation that resulted in diaper rash. This has
recently been challenged, and it is now believed several factors pre-
dispose to rash.
The protective layers of the skin can be destroyed by keeping
the area wet, by washing with soaps, by the friction of rubbing with
cloths or wipes and by enzymes that get into the diapers from the
bowel movements.
It seems to make no difference whether one uses cloth diapers
or disposable diapers. About the same percentage of babies develop.
diaper rashes with each.
If you have eliminated all causes of local irritation and your
baby still has a diaper rash this usually means a fungus or bacteri-
al infection of the skin usually fungal. A warm moist area is ideal
for fungus growth.
In hot weather a plastic coated disposable diaper or plastic
pants over a cloth diaper end up giving a minor scald of the baby's
skin.
You need to keep the diaper area dry, but you do not need to
wash the area every time the baby urinates.-You do need to cleanse
the area after each bowel movement That cleansing can be a sim-
ple rinsing of the area and gently patting it dry with facial tissue,
toilet paper o a soft towel.
A program to prevent diaper rash involves keeping the baby
dry. Somens it helps to rub some corn starch into the creases
and around the area. (Talcum powder is not recommended because
it is irritating to the baby's lungs and can actually cause lung dam-
age.) One should avoid plastic diaper covers in hot weather .and re-
member to wash after each bowel movement gently patting dry.
If diaper rash has developed despite preventive efforts, you will -
need a protective cream either Desitin, A&D or Zinc Oxide oint-
ments. Part of being protective means it adheres to the irritated
,area. Do not work at removing all the previous ointment with each
diaper change. Rinse if you need to do so and pat dry. More oint-
-ment can be applied over that remaining adhered. You will probably
need to expose to the air as much as possible. These rashes that do
not respond to the above treatment will probably need fungus
.cream and perhaps a mild cortisone to treat the inflammation.
There are conditions of eczema, psoriasis, allergy and other
conditions that will need special attention but with routine and lit-
tle preventive attention most diaper rashes can be avoided.

Tax Reform Being Sought By Citizens


A nationally based grass roots
group announced that an over-
haul in the nation's tax structure
is needed now more than ever
with America engaged in the Gulf
War.
The group, Citizens for an Al-
ternative Tax System (C.A.T.S.)
headquartered in California,
which was founded by editors of
Freedom Magazine, the investiga-
tive journal of the Church of
Scientology, proposes that a Na-
tional Sales Tax replacing the In-
come Tax and IRS will be neces-


sary to help the country deal with
the economic crunch brought on
by the war.
"Estimated figures which
were released at the beginning of
the Gulf War predicted a cost of
two billion dollars per day to fund
our actions there once the air
force and ground troops are fully
engaged. This works out to an
amazing 83 million dollars an
hour," stated Ron Savelo, the
spokesperson for the Florida
Chapter of C.A.T.S.

Craig Pate Named As

All-American Scholar


The United States Achieve-
ment Academy announced that
Craig Pate has been named an
All-American Scholar.
The USAA has established the
All-American Scholar Award Pro-
gram in order to offer deserved
recognition to superior students
who excel in the Academic disci-
plines. The All-American Scholars
must earn a 3.3 or better grade
point average. Only scholars se-
lected by a high school instruc-
tor, counselor, or other qualified
sponsor are accepted. These
scholars are also eligible for other
awards given by the USAA.
Craig Pate who attends Port
St. Joe High School was nominat-
ed for this national award by Car-
ol Cathey.
Craig's name will appear in
the All-American Scholar Directo-
ry, which is published nationally.
Craig is the son of Mr. and
I Mrs. Bobby Pate. Grandparents
are Mr. and Mrs. J.T. Campbell,


and Annie Pate of Brooldyn, Ala-
bama.


approach, when our country was
faced with this situation, has
been to raise taxes and come up
with new additional taxes. In fact,
that's how we were first subjected
to the income tax in this country
during the Civil War, and later to
pay for the Spanish American
War," Savelo continued.

"Unfortunately, with the need
to cover war-incurred debt and
expense what hasn't been looked
at (historically or recently) is that
the current method of taxation on
income and production was the
most serious cause of negative ec-
onomic impact long before the
war began, the war and oil crisis
which preceded it, have merely
acted as a catalyst," added Save-
lo.
The tax reform group, which
was formed in August of 1990, is
promoting a complete revision of
the nation's tax structure. Their
proposal is to replace the income
tax with a National Sales Tax. In-
formation contained in the
group's booklet "Freeing the USA
from the Income Tax" explains
that 'The income tax is the major


cause of the country's economic
ills." The Gulf War will simply ag-
gravate the pre-existing economic
ills.
Savelo stated, 'The cure to
our present economic plight is to
replace the complex, unfair and
destructive income tax system
with one which allows for capital
formation and rewards saving
and investment; one which gives
the average citizen the chance to
get ahead financially."

THE STAR. PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, April 11, 1991


April Proclaimed As Child Abuse Prevention Month


Mayor Frank Pate of Port St.
Joe and Mayor Gene Hanlon of
Wewahitchka signed a proclama-
tion Tuesday declaring the month
of April as Child Abuse Preven-
tion Month.
Due to the large amount of
child abuse and neglect, April has
been proclaimed at National
CChild Abuse Prevention Month. In
recognition of this, key figures in-
volved in working with children in
the Gulf County community have
signed a proclamation. In addi-
tion, The Star will publish articles


throughout the month on positive
parenting and other children's is-
sues. In the state of Florida, con-
firmed cases of child abuse and
neglect exceeded 44,000 during
the year 1989-90. That is shock-
ing, but even more shocking is
the fact that for every case of
child abuse/neglect reported, two
more go unreported.
Why are children abused and
neglected?
The majority of child abuse/
neglect is non-intentional; less
than 25 percent is actually inflict-


ed with the purpose of harming a
child. Child abuse/neglect is gen-
erally a reaction to an environ-
mental stressor: Do you remem-
ber how old you felt
-the last time you lost a job
and the kids nagged at you for
food, clothes, toys?
-the last time you came
home from a day of the boss yell-
ing at you and your child wanted
to play horsie?
-the last time you tried to
clean house with a severe head-
ache and the kids got in a fight?

or a patterned behavior:
-It was OK for me to use a
switch on my child's legs to the
point of drawing blood, as, after
all, my parents used to draw
blood from my back, and, look at
me, I turned out all right.
Individuals who thusly injure
their children do not start out
with the intention to do so. They
feel remorse and want help but
are afraid to ask, afraid they will
lose their children. The majority
of children receive services and
are not removed from the home
(with the exception of sexually
abused children where the non-
abusive parent is a non-
protector).

pects" child abuse is ethically ob-
ligated to report abuse. Florida
law mandates the following per-
sons to report: physicians, nurs-
es, hospital personnel, medical
examiners, mental health profes-
sionals, school teachers and oth-
er school personnel, social work-
ers, day care workers, residential
or institutional workers and law
enforcement officers. Any profes-
sional failing to report or know-
ingly preventing another from do-
ing so is guilty of a second degree
misdemeanor, punishable by law.
Remember:
1. Children can seldom speak
for their own protection.
2. Child abuse/neglect is gen-
erally non-intentional, it is a cry
for help.
3. It is not up to you to prove,
only SUSPECT.
4. Few children are removed
from their families, most are pro-
vided services within their family
(with the exception of sexual
abuse when the non-abuser re-


fuses to protect the child).

continuing growth of child
abuse/neglect. Call 1-800-96-

State Parks Consider Fee Revision

'"Per-Car" Charge Being Favored Over Old '"Per Person" Admission Rate


The Department of Natural Resourc-
es, Division of Recreation and Parks, is
considering revisions that will include
the elimination of the per-person en-
trance fee in favor of a more efficient
$3.25 per-car charge. These fees will help
ensure that Florida state parks continue
providing adequate service levels for visi-
tors.
Four meetings were conducted across
the state to ensure that citizens from all
geographic regions of the state would
have a chance to provide input. The pro-
posed revisions have been discussed at a
meeting of statewide recreational user
groups; at public workshops in Tallahas-
see, Orlando and Miami; and at a public
hearing also held in Orlando. The meet-
ing, workshops and hearing were held to
receive public opinion prior to presenting
the revisions to the Governor and Cabi-
net on April 23 for final consideration: If


approved, the changes are expected to
take place the latter part of May or the
first of June.
NO TAX REVENUE
Florida state parks do not receive any
general tax revenue. Funding for the op-
eration and maintenance of Florida's
state parks comes from two main sources
- user fees and funds generated by reve-
nues from documentary stamps on trans-
actions on real property.
The park visitors provide the first
source of operating revenue for Florida
state parks. "User fees" are comprised of
entrance and camping fees, rental of rec-
reational equipment and cabins, and
concession sales. These fees provide ap-
proximately 40 percent of the parks' op-
erating costs. It. is these user fees that
are being proposed for revision.
DOC STAMP FEES
Documentary stamps currently pay


for approximately 60 percent of the
park's operating costs. Because of pro-
jected revenue shortfalls, the department
wishes to reduce the use of documentary
stamp monies for non-acquisition pur-
poses.
An estimated $3.3 million in addi-
tional revenue will result rom the pro-
posed fee revisions. This additional
revenue is needed to continue opera-
tions and services in state parks at
their current level.
MAJOR CHANGES
Currently Florida residents are
charged $1.00 per vehicle and driver and
50 cents for each additional person, with
non-residents paying $2.00 and $1.00,
respectively. The proposed $3.25 charge
per vehicle includes all taxes and will ad-
mit up to eight people, resident or non-
resident.

Named to All-State


Reginald Larry, a 5-10" point
guard for Port St. Joe was named
on Thursday of last week to the
all-state AA basketball team. Lar-
ry was a four-year starter for the
Sharks averaging 27.2 points, 5.9
rebounds, 9.3 assists and 5.3
steals during the '91 season.
Five times during the 1991
basketball season (four of which
were consecutive weeks), Larry
was named as the Tallahassee
Democrat's Player of the Week af-
ter scoring over 40 points in a
game and was named as a mem-
ber of the All Big Bend first team.
He was also named to the All-
Tournament team at the Wewa-
hitchka Classic and the Panam-


Reginald Larry


City Mosley tourneys.
Coach Vemn Epinette, who
has coached numerous outstand-
ing basketball players in his
coaching career said, "I think you
can not truly appreciate his abili-
ty and accomplishments and the
way in which he achieved those
unless you've seen him play. He
understood his role included him
to score for us this year, yet he
would still rather make the great
pass than score a basket I don't
think I've ever been associated
with a player who possesses such
a great shooter's mentality, and
yet has such a great unselfish at-
titude. He most always makes the
right play because he thinks of
the need of his team rather than
his own.
"With all the attention Reggie
has received he always remains
sensitive regarding his team-
mates and coaches. He's been a
fantastic player, student and citi-
zen of our community. I feel for-
tunate to have had the opportuni-
ty to coach Reggie. I hope that he
will continue to handle himself in
the same fashion that he has,"
concluded Epinette.


About 25 antique cars, 25
*' years or older, will make a stop in
Port St. Joe for lunch Saturday,
April 13. The cars are participat-
ing in the sixth annual Gold Cup
Antique Car Race, hosted by the
Miracle Strip Region of the An-
tique Automobile Club of Ameri-
ca.


The race is a timed event
Each driver declares a speed, for
example 40 mph. If the first leg of


the race from Panama City to Port
St. Joe via Wewahitchka is 40
miles long, it would take this
driver one hour to make this dis-
tance if he maintained his de-
clared speed. He is penalized one
point for each second he is over
or under his perfect time of one


hour. A handicap for the age of
the car is also added to his score.
The newer the car, the larger the


Track Team Places


In Kiwanis Meet


Last Saturday, six members
of Port St. Joe High School's
track team competed in the 24th
Annual Kiwanis Invitational
Track and Field Meet. The 15

taw, Florida A&M, Godby,
Greensboro, Leon, Tampa-Leto,
Lincoln, Longwood-Lyman, Nice-
ville, Oak Ridge, Quincy-Shanks,
Rickards, Rutherford, Wakulla,

'"The field consisted of some
very strong track programs and
this made for some good perfor-
mances by our runners," ob-
served Scott Gowan, coach of the
team. "Four of our athletes re-
corded a personal best and one
runner established a new school
record."
Senior Desmond Quinn
placed sixth in the 800 meters
with a time of 2:02.28. This was a
personal best for Desmond and
his time set a new school record,
in the event.
"Desmond ran well Saturday.
He is beginning to get his time
down to where he will have a
chance to score at the state
meet," said Gowan.
Dontae Quinn also ran well in
the 800 meters. His time of
2:05.5 was a personal best for
him. Dontae also ran the 1600

S gc


meters and finished with a time
of 4:54.7.
Scott Boykin ran both the
1600 and the 3200. Although he
didn't run his best time in the
3200, he still finished fifth inthe
race with a time of 10:24.3. His
time in the 1600 was 5:14.7.
The 4x400 relay team fin-
ished fifth with a time of 3:42.7.
Zyris Hill (52.54), Dontae Quinn
(55.12), Charles Keene (55.58),
and Letron Alexander (59.37),
made up the team.
In the field "events, Charles
Keene set a personal best in the
triple jump with a leap of 40'6".
Charles Keene and Letron Al-
exander both participated in the
high jump. Each jumper cleared
5'10" but Charles finished fourth
and Letron fifth.
"Our older runners are really
running well right now. We have
the district meet in two weeks
and if we are going to have a
chance to win, these runners are
going to have to win their events,"
concluded Gowan.
Upcoming Meets:
April 13 at Gulf Breeze
April 16 Bay, Marianna

Ramsey Signs Baseball Scholarship


Bill Ramsey, a five-year start-
er for the Sharks varsity baseball
team, signed a scholarship and
letter of intent with Tallahassee
Community College Monday.
Receiving several contacts for
both football and baseball schol-
arships, Ramsey chose baseball
as his favorite game to play and
TCC, because of its proximity to
and ties with FSU.
The signee has been the
Sharks' quarterback for the past
two seasons, when the team went
to the state Class AA finals in
Daytona Beach, in 1989 and the
semi-finals at Jacksonville in
1990. He was named quarterback
of the all-state team for both
years.
"I just wasn't large, enough for
the major college football recruit-
ers," the 5-11, 165 pound athlete
said. "Besides, I had rather play
baseball. I like it.more and feel I
have a better future in the game
than I would in football."
During the past three sum-

1990 season, he was shortstop
on the American Legion Post 84
team in Quincy. He posted a .950
fielding percentage with the team.
Mike McLeod, head coach for
the TCC Eagles, and former FSU
pitching coach for many years,
was present Monday for the sign-
ing. He stated, '"Tallahaseee Com-
munity College is going to estab-
lish a class baseball program
which will be very competitive
and we're fortunate to sign an
athlete of Bill's caliber. We've re-
cruited him as an infielder."
Coach Duane McFarland,
who has coached Bill during his
high school career, said, "He


works extremely hard. He's been
wanting to play college ball and
has the skill to do it."
Ramsey was pleased with the
offer from TCC because of the
coaching ties with Florida State.
'The Seminoles have a good pro-
gram. A spot on TCC's roster
might make it easier to become a
part of the FSU program after two
years."
Ramsey, was scouted for his
defensive abilities on the baseball
team, but he also is the number
two starter on the Shark pitching
squad, with a 2.33 earned run av-
erage. He has 46 strike-outs in
six games.


Ramsey also expressed his
appreciation for the support given
to him during his high school ca-
reer by Sharks coach Duane
McFarland, athletic director Phil
Lanford, Joe Ferolito, Quincy
Recreation Director, and his
teammates. "Without the assis-
tance of the coaches and the
teamwork of my fellow players, I
would not be able to sign this
scholarship".
Ramsey is the third Shark
athlete to sign a college scholar-
ship this year. Matt Taylor signed
a baseball contract with Wake
Forest and Willie Smith will play
football for Bethune-Cookman.

As an example, for instance, with
cucumbers if bees are not actively
working a garden, a lot of the cu-
cumbers turn up short and mal- '
formed. Studies have shown for
cucumber crops to receive opti-
mum pollinating,- each flower
needs to have 50 separate bee'
visits to it during the short time it
is receptive to pollination. A simi-
lar situation probably exists for
other crops as well.
What can be done about this?
Actually, as gardeners there is
very little we can do except to
make sure we aren't doing any-
thing to harm the few bees that
are visiting our blossoms. Be
aware that many insecticides are
particularly hazardous to bees.
Avoid using pesticides that are in
dust form or plants that are in
flower and being visited by bees.
Insecticidal dusts (example: sevin
dust) never really dry and are
deadly to a hairy bodied bee.
When using spray-on pesticides
on plants in flower, try to restrict
spraying to the last activity of the,
day. Bees use the sun as a navi-,
gating tool and their activity,
drops off dramatically at near
sundown. Spraying. after 4:00
p,m. should allow the material to
thoroughly dry before the next
day. Some of the materials that
are highly toxic to bees (when en-
. countered wet) include sevin, dia-
zinon, malathion, arthene, syn-
thetic.pyretherins, and cygon.
On the flip side of having too
few fruit is having too many.. Of-
ten we find a "banner year" hap-(c
opening in orchards and if all the .
fruit is allowed to stay on to ma-'
ture, the tree will be the worse for
it. Limb breakage will be common

To get those large, juicy peaches,
now is the time to thin. Thinning
must be done while the fruit is
still the size of a dime. It is sug-
gested to remove fruit while
they're still the size of a dime. It


is suggested to remove fruit until.
there is approximately 4-6 inches
between each fruit, leave the larg-,
est and nicest looking fruit and
remove all the ones that would in-
terfere with those.

in such circumstance. The fruit
that does eventually ripen will be
small or have little edible "meat"
to pit ratio. Pears commonly pro-
duce far more fruit than their
branches can handle. In this
case, once the fruit load has been
determined, then as much as 50
percent should be removed by
pulling it off while it is still small.
Unless few fruit have been set to
begin with. Peach and nectarines,
are another fruiting tree which
sets far more fruit than is wise to
leave on. If all peaches were left
to develop, the fruit would turn
up with large pits but little flesh.

NEW BEGINNINGS
So I went down to the potter's house, and
there he was working at his wheel and the
vessel he was making of clay was spoiled in
the potter's hand, and he reworked it into an-
other vessel, as it seemed good to the potter
to do.
Jeremiah 18:3, 4
Some -things can. be reworked again so as to
cover mistakes or flaws, to remedy the lack of skill
at the present moment. God told Jeremiah that
He, too, has that same ability with even the lives of
nations or individuals.
If there is one vitally important truth to all of
mankind it is that God speaks truth when it comes
to new beginnings with man before His Almighty
Father. Judas couldn't believe it, but Peter did ac-
cepting it filled with thanksgiving and love for a
God who would act in such a way toward his past
mistakes. The concept is far above man's standard
as he approaches from the world's classroom.
This new beginning from the Heavenly Father
shows a love never understood nor experienced be-
fore. The world standard says once broken and
marred, once the innocence and purity has van-
ished, there is no going back.
The "new birth" through Jesus given by God
says that one might start anew. Paul states it as a
"new creation" in II Corinthians 5:17; No matter
how soiled, matted, filthy, or rotten God's power
can reshape a life molded after the one of His Son
Jesus.
One of the problems of those lost to Satan is
that the concept is too beautiful to believe. When
they hear the words of Jesus say, "to the thirsty I
will give from the fountain of the water of life with-
out payment"', (Rev. 21:8b) it is incredible. With all
of the past willful evil, the hurts and pains caused
to others, and the massive weight of guilt, how can
one receive complete and total loving forgiveness?
Only to those who gladly receive the grace of a
new beginning can the Lord say, "Come, 0 blessed
of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you
from the foundation of the world." (Mt. 25:34) Eve-
ryone of them will have had a new beginning.
