Highland View Opposes Change
Citizens Come Out In Force to Show Support Against Changing Street Names for 911 System
It wasn't Highland View's night Tuesday night, at the County
Commission meeting. A large delegation of Highland View citi-
'zens were attracted to the meeting to oppose a rumor they had
heard regarding the County Commission changing the names of
a number of their streets.
The consensus of opinion from Highland View was that they
didn't want their street names changed.
Chairman Ed Creamer, who had his fingers burned by this
very same question some few months ago, quickly stated he
knew nothing about the source or credibility of the report. "As
far as I am concerned, I will never vote to change the names of
streets in Highland View."
Residents from Highland View pooled their forces Tues- proposed 911 emergency telephone system. 'being planned
day night, to express their opposition to changing the for the County. Planning is currently underway on the new
names of streets in that community, to accommodate the enhanced emergency installation.
Bids Cause Controversy On Board
Bids received by the Gulf
County Commission Tuesday
night, caused consternation
among the ranks and divided the
* Commission on the question of
purchase of two new dump
trucks for the Road Department.
Calling for a unique bid re-
cently, the Commission had
asked for bids to lease two new
and large dump trucks, retiring
three vehicles which have been in
service since the mid-70's. The
bid was to have been for a five
year lease, with a guaranteed
buy-back after the five year peri-

ceived; one from Cook-Whitehead

Leaders of Spaceport Florida

meeting room of the Gulf County
Courthouse, to set a launch agen-
da for the local facility.

Operations and Doug Rose,
from Mack Truck of Tallahassee.
LOW BID IS HIGH
County coordinator, Ralph
Rish reported to the Board Tues-
day night, that Mack had bid a
higher price for their truck, but
after considering the interest rate
on the lease plan and the buy-
back guarantee of $19,000 per
truck, they were the low bidder
by a considerable amount.
After the five year lease deal,
the Macks would cost the county
a total of $77,840 each, or a total
of $155,680. In addition, they
would get a $38,000 refund from
Mack for re-purchase of the
trucks after five years.

The situation which prompted the fear of street name chang-
es was the beginning of planning sessions for emergency 911 tel-
ephone service throughout the county. The committee charged
with setting up a game plan for inauguration of the service has
held three or four tentative meetings. In previous discussions
about the emergency call service, it was brought out that every
address in the County must be different in order to eliminate
confusion about locations given over the phone.
NAMES CAUSE CONFUSION
Since there are First, Second, Third, Fourth, etc., streets in
Highland View, Port St. Joe, St. Joe Beach and Beacon Hill, ob-
viously some changes must be made and Highland View resi-
dents were first to stand up and say, 'We don't want our street
There are also First, Second, Third, Fourth, etc., streets in
the north end of the county as well, but these do not pose as
much potential confusion as do the streets with the same name
here in the south end.
Sheriff Al Harrison, a member of the 911 committee, since
his department would be manning the receiving end of the emer-
gency telephone number, observed, "Changing some street
names may be necessary. We're trying to get a system for saving
lives installed in a manner which is best for the County."
Commissioner Billy Traylor remarked, 'We must do whatever
we have to do to allow this system to be instrumental in saving
lives which is the reason for installing it in the first place."
Chairman Creamer said, 'We don't know enough about the
workings of the system yet, to make an intelligent decision. I sat
in on a recent meeting of the committee with a 911 representa-
tive from Tallahassee and he made the remark that it would not
be necessary to change the name of streets. If that is so, we
won't be changing any names."
After a lengthy discussion of the matter, when it was ex-
plained the system was such that a person only need dial "911"
[without uttering a word] and a computer would locate the call-
ing address and dispatch aid, the delegation from Highland View
began to take a more sympathetic attitude for the need to possi-
bly change some street names. Before they left, they agreed to
an offer from Creamer to let the county get the system installed,
and then if there is any problem with streets having identical
names, they would then discuss name changes. Creamer also
suggested that Highland View select a citizen to serve on the 911
planning committee, so they would be familiar with the matter
as it progresses.
Commissioner Billy Traylor added to the Highland View woes
by pointing out that the County was using people on the County
payroll to do maintenance work for the Highland View Water
System. 'We shouldn't be using employees paid by taxpayers to
do work on water systems at Highland View, the Beaches, Oak
Grove, Wewahitchka or Port St. Joe. These areas should bear
their own expenses of operating their water systems," he said.
Traylor was referring to a practice of using Courthouse main-
tenance workers for maintaining the system, reading meters,
and performing other tasks for the Water District. "If these peo-
ple are used, the Highland View Water System should pay their
salaries while they are doing work for that system," Traylor said.
Chairman Ed Creamer remarked, 'They have not neglected
their duties here at the Courthouse to work on these water sys-
Traylor then asked attorney Robert Moore if it was legal for
this practice to continue. Moore replied that since the Board was
also the Highland View Water System board, then the system
was a part of the County's assets and they could legally use
County employees to serve the needs of the system. "My feeling
is that your concern is one of accountability, and that's another
question," Moore said.
Commissioner Charles Fortner observed, 'We know we have
problems there and with the Beach. Let's spend our energies
coming up with a solution for the problem rather than expend
our efforts arguing over the matter or continuing to maintain the
situation through our present actions."
Fortner's suggestion calmed a testy situation and caused the
Commission to see that was the course they wished to follow.
Freedom's Torch Will be Ignited Wed.
Yellow ribbons, such as this one in front of the Court-
house, will be collected and taken to Tallahassee.
Port St. Joe is still in the thick of things when it comes to
being a part of the defense and preservation of Florida. Opera-
tion Desert Shield/Storm didn't offer much of a threat to Flor-
ida, but it saw Florida react by sending many of its fine,
young men to answer their country's call to duty.
Back in 1838, Port St. Joe hosted some of Florida's finest
men to draft the state's first Constitution, and although it was
close to Christmas and most of the founding fathers wanted to
get home to their families, they stayed on the job, answering
the call to duty until the job was done.
Port St. Joe will be an integral part of honoring those who
answered the call in 1990, when Saddam Hussein played it
stubborn. The city will be one of 60 starting points throughout
the state, which will send a Freedom's Torch, to light the
state's Freedom Flame, in front of the old Capitol building in
Tallahassee on July 4. The torch, which will be lit Wednesday
morning in a short ceremony in front of City hall by Mayor
Frank Pate, will be carried by runners, through the day and
night, reaching Tallahassee at 8:00 a.m., Thursday, July 4.
The Wednesday morning ceremony, which begins at
9:00 a.m., will be proceeded by a gathering of yellow rib-
bons-from local citizens who wish to turn theirs in-
which will also be carried to Tallahassee and attached to a
huge wall standing behind the Freedom Flame torch.
The torch will become an eternal flame and will start a
Florida's Freedom Festival, which has been organized by
Governor Lawton Chiles.
The gathering of the yellow ribbons will begin at 7:30,
sponsored and hosted by the Chamber of Commerce. The
Chamber representatives will be serving coffee and dough-
nuts to the ribbon donors from 7:30 to 9:00 a.m.
Emphasis will be placed on honoring veterans of Desert
Storm/Shield with the Independence Day activities, but the
office of Governor Chiles says attention will be paid to all who
have faithfully and courageously defended the nation's free-
Tamara Laine, Chamber of Commerce Executive Director
said the activities here Wednesday morning and those in Tal-
lahassee on Thursday will be free to spectators who wish to
gather to pay homage to the state's and the nation's fighting
men on Independence Day.
Here in Port St. Joe, the celebration will not be over at
9:30 Wednesday, when the flame is started on its way to
Tallahassee. There will be more to come on Thursday,
when the City will put on its annual giant fireworks dis-
play in First Union Bank Park at dusk.
Prior to the fireworks, there will be patriotic music be-
ing played, concessions stands dispensing food and cold
drinks and balloons which will complement the patriotic
flavor of the celebration.
So, don't forget; bring in your yellow ribbons you have
been displaying so long at 7:30 Wednesday morning, eat a
doughnut and drink a cup of coffee served by the Chamber of
Commerce, see the lighting of Freedom's Flame by Mayor Pate
and take in the fireworks display Thursday night at the Union
Bank Park. It's all free and it is all designed to enhance pride
in the nation and its fighting men.
PAGE TWO THURSDAY, JUNE 27,1991
We don't know who is responsible for making the choice, but
we think it fitting that Port St. Joe was chosen as one of the
starting points for the Freedom Flame project being promoted by
the Governor of Florida, for July Fourth.
Remember, Florida started right here in Port St. Joe way
back in 1837, in a frame house near what is now Oak Grove. In
December of that year, a group of the state's leaders gathered
here in Old St. Joseph and hammered 6ut the state's first Con-
stitution to serve the new state as it became a part of the Union.
For those of you who haven't been here long enough to have
gathered up this bit of information, a display at the State Mu-
seum, out near the Monument between Allen Memorial Way and
Gautier Way, shows this Constitution signing in diorama, as
well as a replica of that first document.
Port St. Joe is steeped in Florida history and it takes an
event like July 4, which recalls the birth of our nation and the
honoring of a group of fighting men who have served our nation
well, to remind us once again of the importance of Port St. Joe to
the state's past.
We really don't know if those who made the decision that
Port St. Joe be one of the starting points for the Freedom Flame
run to Tallahassee were even aware of the part old St. Joseph
played in our state's history. Their selection may have been
strictly accidental, but we can think of no better choice for such
an event. Of course, we could realistically include St. Augustine
as a "natural" for this project, since it is the oldest city in the
state, but for sheer force of history in creation of our state, Port
St. Joe as a choice, couldn't be surpassed.
There are those of our number who are still smarting from
the rebuff by state officialdom for ignoring Port St. Joe's 150th
anniversary of the signing of this first state Constitution, so
maybe the selection for this honor will sort of smooth a few
feathers here in our city toward bureaucratic and elected Talla-
Could be Promising
Spaceport Florida officials will be meeting here in Port St. Joe
Tuesday, July 2, for the, purpose of working on the beginning of
their commercial sub-orbital space program calendar.
Gulf County's St. Joseph Peninsula has-been designated by
Spaceport Florida as the launch site for these probes into space
by educational and commercial ventures. They tell us there is a
long list of commercial entities out there waiting to use ,the
launch facilities for testing, experiments, studies, etc., on vari-
ous sophisticated products, which will keep the local launch site
The Spaceport Florida officials tell us that the launch activi-
ties themselves won't mean all that much, economically, to our
part of the state, but that the support and launch firms locating
assembly points, analysis facilities, study centers, etc., here
near the launch site can mean a good, solid industry for south
We 'remember when the Air- Force site located on the Penin-
sula back in the late 50's. It" wasn't supposed to rihean all that
much'to our county, but in the succeeding years the tracking
'station had a significant effect on our community. Even though
its activities aren't as large as they once were, the site still is a
solid part of our economy, after more than 30 years of operation.
We feel this can happen from our portion of Spaceport Flori-
da. Even though there are those in Congress who are wanting to
cut back on expenditures for space experiments, the type space
probes we are getting here are only in their infancy.
For whatever good it means to our community, we're pleased
to see the project get under way. We'll welcome the first launch
-sometime in late summer-as we enter the space age here in
We would even call it fitting that Port St. Joe should have an
Important role in the launching of the State of Florida into state-
hood back in 1838 and now has a significant part to play with
launching the state into the commercial space experimental
Come to think of it, Gulf County has seen a lot of "firsts" in
its history. There was the advent of the state's first steam rail-
road here between Lake Wimico and old St. Joseph; adoption of
the state's first Constitution and now the state's launch into
commercial experimentation in space.
Who knows, there may yet be another "first" or two out there
for us to get involved in at sometime in the future.

It Would Appear the "Good Old Days" Are Here Today

piece of information I received
here in the office, recently, rein-

else could. Things change right
under our nose and usually, it is
so slow and gradual that we nev-

The source of this informa-

All you young people have
heard your plders tell you about
feeding a family of four on only
$5.00 a week, and eating well.
You have heard the tales of rent-

and even buying a new car for

school two or three miles in one
direction, winter and summer.
You have heard these tales,

ONE OF THE MAIN reasons
for this type of travel; these sto-
ries of unbelievably low prices
and what sounded like hardship,
was the amount of the paycheck
in those days. It was also a pay-
check which wasn't cut to shreds
with taxes, like the one is today.
It was a paycheck which seemed
the size of a horse blanket, when,
compared to the size of today's
paycheck, it was about the size of
a postage stamp and a dollar
would buy 33 postage stamps
and a postal card in those days I
am talking about.
While I'm diverted on this
subject, this three cent stamp or
this penny post card would al-
most certainly transport your
message to any address in the
United States in only three days
Try that today!
THIS PIECE OF information
I came across the other day is a
report on the business communi-
ty here in Port St. Joe in 1938. It
was for a Mr. Wilson, secretary of
the Chamber of Commerce by W.
D. Marks, Personnel Manager of
St. Joe Paper Company.
In the report, Mr. Marks re-
vealed that the paper mill here
paid its officials between $3,000
and $12,000 per year. Weekly
salaries ranged between $20.00
to $75.00. The prevailing wage for
hourly workers was from 40t to
$1.45 per hour.
The plant operated approxi-
mately 350 days a year, utilized
four shifts, working six hours a
day, seven days a week, for a to-
tal of 42 hours a week.
Simple arithmetic reveals
that the lowest salary of 40N per
hour, earned the worker $16.80
per week. And, they came from all
over north Florida, south Ala-
bama and Georgia to get those
Top hourly workers made
$59.90 per week, unless they got
in some overtime.
How does that compare with
you paper mill workers today?
By the way, St. Joe Paper
spent a total of $945,000 a year
for short cut pulpwood in those
days. That equates out to $6.00
per unit [1 1/4 cords] for stump-
age, producer, freight and labor.
THERE WAS A LARGE saw-
mill operation here in Port St. Joe
in those days, named Kenney's
Mill and later changed to St. Joe
Lumber and Export Company.
The mill, located where the
Wastewater Treatment Plant is to-
day, employed 300 to 400 work-
ers, most of whom lived in com-
pany housing across from the
Those 300 to 400 men re-
quired a payroll of $6,000 a week.
This means they made from
$15.00 to $20.00 a week, depend-
ing on how many employees there
This lumber mill went on to
operate seven days a week, 24
hours a day during the war years
and was a huge blow to the city's
financial base, when it shut down
in the mid-50's, when the saw
logs were cut out.
There was a small R. R.
Hodges Lumber Company here in
1938, which had 12 employees
with a weekly payroll of $225.00.
OTHER INDUSTRIES operat-
ed on a much smaller scale than
they do today, but their pay was
just a drop in the bucket com-
pared to their impact today.
The Apalachicola Northern
Railroad Company also operated
the St. Joseph Telephone and Tel-
egraph Company in those days,
with J. L. Sharit, a long-time
Mayor of the town, in charge of
The two firms had a total of
200 employees and served from
Port St. Joe to Chattahoochee.
The railroad had an average
weekly payroll of $15,332.50 and
the telephone company paid its
employees $776.00 per week.
Pate Stevedoring Company
[no relation to the present Mayor]
maintained a freight gang of 250
men for a lively water shipping
business operated over the docks.
This was mostly common labor
and the weekly payroll [mostly fo'
part-time work] was $800.00.
St. Joseph Land and Develop-
ment Company had 10 employees
and paid them $550 a week.
Florida Menhaden Company

The Wonderful World of Golf
Several days ago I decided it was time to take an afternoon
off and relax a little. Several people told me the fishing wasn't
good and I didn't feel like visiting my sick sister and hearing
more about the "church people: so I elected to play a round of
It had been about six months since I had played, but I carry
a ten (10) handicap so I felt I could hold my own with some of my
friends who play on a regular basis. I sh6t the worst round of golf
I've shot in years and am still trying to figure out how to pay
I was feeling good the day we played, right up until we teed
off. From that point on it was downhill. When I thought it
couldn't get worse, it did! The few times I hit a good shot, I fol-
lowed it up with about five that were awful. If you've ever played
golf you know what I mean.
After the second hole I began to wonder what was going on.
Was there a mass conspiracy to bankrupt me? Had someone al-
tered my clubs so they would shank every other shot I hit? Or
had lady luck just abandoned me at the time I needed her most?
Finally, the same resounding question came at me time and time
again: what was I doing out on this golf course?
I wondered about several things and finally began to make
mental notes about golf and, in particular, the game I was in-
volved in. Below are a few of my thoughts during that round:
*How can a person go to a golf course feeling so good and
play so badly?
*How can a person design a golf course and put trees, sand
traps and water in the exact place I hit my ball on each hole?
*Why do I go to the golf course thinking I might "par" the
course when I know it utterly impossible. but I keep on hop-
ing and playing!
*What is it that when I hit the longest and best drive that I
hit the worst second shot in the group?
*Why is it that the easiest putt to make is a 30-footer when
I'm putting for an eight and someone else has chipped in for a
*Why do I get the feeling that everyone else is hoping I mess
up like I did that day except my partner? I also get the feeling my
partner is hoping I will drop out after the first few holes.
*Why is it that those who are five holes up are always the
ones laughing and having fun and my partner and I are cussing
and arguing with one another?
*How can golf look so easy on T.V. and be so dam hard when
I try to play it?
*Why do I always buy defective balls? They won't go nearly as
far as the ones I bought five or six years ago.
*Why is every new set of clubs I buy knocked out of align-
ment after the first round or two?
*Finally, why do I play golf? Golf is a game for people with
plenty of time and money and I don't have either. Besides that,
what do I expect to accomplish if I did par the course? I would go
out the next time and want to shoot the course record and what
would I accomplish if I did that?
Some advice for those who play golf or are thinking about
starting: If you have Just started, STOP! If you're thinking about
I hate that game, but it sure is fun when you're playing well!
It has been many, many years since a sea turtle has
made a nest at St. Joe Beach and deposited its clutch of
eggs there, to allow the warm sun to hatch them out.
A little more than a week ago, a sea turtle crawled out
of the Gulf of Mexico at some time during the night and
made herself a nest between the Gulf Aire Town House
apartments and the surf. The turtle crawl and the nest
were discovered the next morning, and were reported to
The Star by Gannon Buzzett, who has a unit in one of the
The nest has since been marked off by authorities and
declared off-limits to pedestrians, pets and motorized vehi-
cles. In other words, they want everything and everybody to
stay away from the nest and give the turtles a chance to
hatch out and make their way back into the Gulf.
The turtles nest fairly often out on St. Joseph Peninsu-
la, but that's the first one on St. Joe Beach in a while!

Citizens Need to Look Around
To the Editor:
Gulf County citizens have

When paving finally started in

"Aw Dad, it's only been five
minutes. Can I go to the dance?
You're the only parent who al-
ways says no."
The big thing now, of course,
is the truck. "It's got to be four-
wheel drive, Dad. And gray, with
a black stripe."
"Son, a truck would be nice.

ROAD PAVING BIDS
Bids were received by the
Board for Phase III of the bonded
county-wide paving project.
Phase III includes Port St. Joe,
the Beaches, and Highland View.
Collectively, there is about $1
million in paving money available
in this phase.
Two bids were received, with
Florida Asphalt of Panama City
being the low bidder on the total
project. The other bidder, C. W.
Roberts Construction Company of
Hosford was close behind Florida
Asphalt in pricing the project.
Both bidders entered prices
which exceeded the money availa-
ble. Included in the project were
several variables which would
both increase and decrease the
price of the completed project.
The bids will be studied, tak-
ing these options into considera-
tion and the need to cut some
projects to come within the mon-
ey available, before determining
who is actually the low bidder.
The total bids received were
$1.3 million from Florida Asphalt
and $1.4 million from Roberts.
The variables included pricing for

Final Pump House
City crews demolished the last remaining
pump house from Port St. Joe's original water
system this week, when they dismantled and
hauled off the last of two pump houses which
formerly were located on Garrison Avenue.
I A few years ago, Faith Christian School pur-
chased the site on which the second pump
house stood, near 20th Street. The most recent
demolition erases all signs of the City's initial
Before you start pointing to the house on
Long Avenue, under the water tower as the last
remaining evidence that there was once a sys-
tem here which could rust the bottom out of a
cast iron skillet in a little more than 10 min-
utes, this building, nor the tower there, were a
part of the original system.
The first water system was heavily loaded
with iron and sulphur. It was considered to be
the water heater manufacturer's best friend,
because it could make the need to purchase a
new one almost a semi-annual event in a home
owner's life. It left rings in bathtubs which per-
sist even to this day in tubs which were in use
at that time.
In the early 40's, Mrs. A. I. duPont present-
ed the city with a filtering system for the un-
popular water supply, and the building was
constructed to house the filter system. In the
beginning, there was only one tower, and it was
taken down several years ago, when the new
350,000 gallon storage tank was built near the
The old wells on Garrison were kept opera-
ble until just the past few years, in case of an
emergency. They were never used and finally
the decision was made to abandon the wells
and dispose of the property. This week's action
wiped that part of past history off the map.

Brilliant firework displays,

consumers of the hazards asso-

cially those that are illegal. Also,
spectators at community fire-

sparks or gunpowder.

You breathe a deep sigh of re-

are in poor shape." You are mis-
takenly relieved. The sad fact is
that more teeth are lost because
of periodontal disease (gum dis-
ease) than from any other fac-
tor, including cavities.
Fortunately, it can be treat-
ed successfully if it is diagnosed
early. Unfortunately, you have
no way of knowing of its onset
other than by dental examina-
tion because there is normally
no pain or other symptoms in its
Once this silent disorder
advances, though, the gums
and even the jawbone may be-
come inflamed and eventually
break dow. But this extreme can
be avoided if the dentist regular-
ly examines your mouth both
visually and with x-rays. He can
determine whether there have
been any changes in the mouth
tissues or the bone around your
teeth. He will also look for early
tooth decay, impaction, tumors
in the jaw area and abscesses
in tooth roots.
To insure healthy gums and
teeth, you must combine regular
dental examinations with effec-
tive brushing and flossing.

Patrol Predicts 36 Will Die On Florida Highways
The Florida Highway Patrol is predict-
ing that 36 persons will lose their lives in
traffic crashes during the upcoming 102-
hour Independence Day holiday period,
beginning 6:00 p.m., Wednesday, July 3,
and ending midnight, Sunday, July 7.
This prediction equates to one highway
death every two hours and 50 minutes.
'With the Independent Day holiday
falling on Thursday this year and the
school year ended, a number of motorists
will take advantage of a long weekend to
enjoy many special Fourth of July cele-
brations and activities statewide," stated
Patrol Director Bobby R. Burkett.
Motorists are encouraged to use a
designat-ed driver during those occasions
when alcoholic beverages will be con-
sumed during the holiday weekend.
The Florida Highway Patrol will use
all available troopers during the period
with enforcement emphasis on DUI,
speed, and occupant restraint violations.
This holiday period will also mark a
second special emphasis of the Operation
Buckle Down campaign to increase safety
belt usage in Florida. Motorists are being
asked to wear their safety belts and pro-
vide proper restraints for child passen-
"Unfortunately, 11, persons fatally in-
jured last year during the Independence
day holiday were not wearing safety belts
although they were available in their ve-
hicles," added Director Burkett.
'The Florida Highway Patrol encour-
ages all motorists to exercise caution
during the long Fourth of July weekend
and take a few extra seconds to buckle-
up during their holiday travels," conclud-,
ed Director Burkett.

CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM
.1 Conditions Needed
,* Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.
Those who Come from close knit loving families never question
the value of such upbringing. To know that you are loved and ac-
cepted no matter what is invaluable. The all important ego is nur-
tured and develops best in good family situations.
Does it mean that all is lost if for some reason an optimal fami-
ly situation is not possible? Nol One works with what he has and
accentuates the positive by downplaying the negatives.
It is inexcusable for divorced parents to use the children to con-
tinue their battles. No child likes to have his mother or father bad
mouthed by the other parent. This is usually done to force the child
to take sides and he does not want to do this.
If a father does not provide the needed support for the family,
the children will know this as they get older without the mother
continually saying what a bad father he is not to provide as he
What is a mother to do if her children, particularly boys, need a
father figure? She can utilize other members of her family a
grandfather, an uncle, a close family friend. In essence the child be-
comes a "child of the family". The concept has been used to help the
mother and the child and share the child rearing responsibilities.
It does not help and usually makes matters worse for the moth-
er to have a succession of "friends in residence." The friend has no
role of authority and because he is there, the mother's position with
the child is often weakened.
Young children, particularly, need stable living conditions. They
respond best if breakfast, lunch and dinner are somewhat at regu-
lar times. Nap time and bedtime should also occur at relatively the
same time each day. That does not mean that one cannot deviate
from the routines with planning for an early nap or late bedtime if
something special comes up but usually the routine should re-
main the same.
Ultimately, it is the family responsibility to see that children get
what they need. This may be food, health care, discipline, educa-
tion, moral values and love. When the family breaks down, often the
state will step in and assume the care. Regulatory agencies do this
because it is necessary not because it is ideal.
...f Children need families. Famflies .ftinctionbeter_,than,,agencies
for child rearing. Government should have no place in child rearing
in an ideal world. American ideals of fulfillment of self are best real-
ized by adults who have had a stable upbringing. Children raised
collectively in a kibbutz or commune are imbued with concepts of
common good and governmental good and do not strive to do and
become the very best possible individually.
With persistence and work, families can get what is needed for
their children. Children with disabilities and chronic conditions can
get help from Children's Medical Services. Deaf children can receive
special education to overcome the disability. Special programs exist
for almost any special problem. No country in the world offers so
many opportunities and choices.
The best parents can do is offer a stable environment for their
special children to enable them to get the most possible out of ser-
vices offered. No country has unlimited resources and waste is un-
Yellow Fever Nudged
State to Create the
Department of Health
(and Destroyed Old St. Joseph)
It's interesting to know that
yellow fever, the disease which
destroyed old St. Joseph and se-
verely crippled many other early
Florida towns and settlements,
was also responsible for estab-
lishing the Florida Department of
Health, one of the earliest govern-
ment-supported services in the
Verna Mathes, director of
nursing for the Gulf County
Health Department, told Rotari-
ans last Thursday that the ser-
vice was first established in 1888
after Jacksonville became the lat-
est victim of the yellow fever dis-
ease, when 5000 contracted the
fever and 400 died.
Yellow fever was common in
Florida in those days, brought
into the state by ships' crews en-
tering Florida ports from Caribbe-
an Island ports, and South and
Central American countries,
where the disease was rampant.
A sailing ship and its crew
brought the fever to old St Jo-
seph, causing wholesale deaths
and putting the death blow on
the old city, which was already
reeling under economic problems.
SMathes said the fever and
cholera were substantial prob-
lems in the state until the turn of
the century, when the new De-
partment of Health began to
make inroads on the causes of

communicable diseases such as

culosis, typhoid, diphtheria, teta-

cine is still the main

ed in Gulf County in 50 years.
'This case was brought in by a
migrant laborer and' there have
been no further outbreaks of the

New Tax Bill Increases Allure of Municipal Bond Investments
By Bill Cordell
The new legislation recently
signed by President Bush could
have an impact on your invest-
ment portfolio as well as your
The legislation eliminated the
33 percent marginal tax bracket
and replaced it with a new 31
percent federal tax bracket. How-
ever, you could pay taxes at an
effective rate even higher than 31
percent because of provisions
which phase-out personal exemp-
tions and reduce itemized deduc-
tions for higher-income taxpay-
ers. As a result, some taxpayers
in the 33 percent bracket may
not see any tax cut at all and
high-income taxpayers formerly
in the 28 percent bracket may
find themselves in the 31 percent
If you are one of the many
taxpayers who face a tax increase
next year, municipal bonds
should become more attractive to
you than ever before. Since al-
most all municipal bonds are ex-
empt from federal taxation, the
prospect of higher federal taxes
makes them more practical be-
cause as tax rates rise, tax-
exempt income becomes more at-
tractive. Similarly, to remain com-
petitive, the yield needed on a
taxable investment would have to
rise to provide the same after-tax
return as a municipal bond.. For
example, if you're in the new 31
percent marginal federal income
tax bracket, you will have to earn
10.14 percent from a taxable
bond to get the same return after
taxes as you would from a tax-
free municipal bond yielding sev-
A municipal bond is simply a
promissory note issued by a mu-
nicipality, state or local govern-
ment The local government Is-
sues bonds to borrow money for
any number of reasons: a new
road, a school, a sewer line or a
courthouse. The promissory note
states how long the local govern-
ment has to repay the loan, the
amount it will repay and the in-
terest rate it will pay for the use
of the funds.
In addition to the increase in
federal' tax rates, many states
have increased their tax rates or
may be forced to do so in the fu-
ture. Generally, municipal bonds
issued by the holder's own state
are exempt from state and local
taxes. Therefore, if your state has
a high tax rate, consider munici-
pals issued in your home state.
Additional Benefits of Mu-
There are several other com-
pelling reasons why municipal
bonds can be an attractive invest-
ment. Municipals are considered
second only to U.S. government
securities in terms of safety.
Many investors also buy munici-
pal bonds because they offer the
opportunity to invest in their lo-
cal community or home state.
And, with over $821 billion in
debt outstanding, there is a wide
range of issues to choose from
that fit your particular invest-
In addition, investors who do
not need the income today can
choose municipal zero coupon
bonds for funding a future invest-
ment goal such as a child's edu-
cation or retirement. The interest
income from tax-free municipal
zero coupon bonds grows tax-
free, allowing a small investment
today to benefit from the powerful
compounding effect of interest be-
ing earned on interest until the
Since tax planning is an im-
portant consideration in making
investment decisions, you should
discuss your particular situation
with a professional tax advisor.
However, the recent tax increase
does make municipal bonds more
appealing to many tax paying
Americans. The possibility of low-
er interest rates in 1991 means

United States Senators Con-
nie Mack (R-FL) and John Breaux
(D-LA) introduced legislation to
make cancer screening proce-
dures more available to all Ameri-
cans regardless of income.
"The legislation recognizes
that early detection of cancer is
the key to saving lives,"' Mack
said. "It's tragic when any life is
lost because the cancer was not
detected early enough for treat-
ment to be successful."
Mack said, 'We've talked for
years about establishing health-
care policy based on prevention.
It's time we did something about
Breaux said, "Cancer knows
no economic bounds, but unfor-
tunately, health care costs do.
Because of costs, many people
put off simple tests that could
save their lives.
"This legislation helps allow
every American to follow neces-
sary early detection procedures
which dramatically increase a
cancer patient's chances of survi-
val. The financial burden of can-
cer screening should not force
people to ignore their health and
risk their lives."
The legislation would use tax
incentives for individuals and
health-care providers to encour-
age Americans to take advantage
of cancer screening examinations.
*Taxpayer's credit. Taxpay-
ers would be eligible for a refund-
able tax credit of up to $250 -

come tax forms if they undergo

" Growing Summer Vegetables
Some Crops Thrive During the Hot Weather Months Ahead
By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
Summertime in Florida is
probably the most difficult time of
the year to grow a vegetable gar-
den. By late June most of the veg-
etables we planted earlier have
been harvested or soon will be.
Hopefully, the harvest has been,
good. The garden can still be ac-
tive and in need of attention
While limited in what to
plant, due to summer heat and
the onslaught of vegetable pests,
in June we can still plant beans,
cherry tomatoes, egg plant, New
Zealand spinach, okra, southern
peas, and sweet potatoes. By July
we would begin to add to that list
peppers and watermelons, but
would drop sweet potatoes. Little
else would do well if planted at
By now, many pests have lim-
ited our ability to continue pro-
ducing good vegetables. Tomatoes
are suffering badly from various
fungus diseases. In addition, a
common pest right now is the to-
O mato homworm. The caterpillar
is a shade of green that blends in
well with the tomato plant. It's a
large caterpillar (reaching more
than an inch) and has a horn-like
tail that will attempt to poke
when it is disturbed. The homed
projection has no venom and is
not a stinger. Handpicking this
homworm is the easiest and fast-
est control. Because it is not diffi-
cult to see, place cold, place cold
(not frigid) water in a spray ato-
mizer bottle and begin misting
the tomato plants, where feeding
has been observed. As those cool
droplets hit the individual horn-
worms, they will jerk up, making
spotting them a breeze. Just pick
them off and drop them in a
small jar of rubbing alcohol. Re-
peat every few days for a week
and control will be achieved with-
out having to use any sprays
Another pest that limits se-
verely our production of a vegeta-
ble is 'the pickleworm. This is a
caterpillar that bores into the de-
veloping cucumber and squash
fruits, often totally ruining them.
Squash that are attacked exhibit
a small hole where the caterpillar
entered the' fruit. Cucumbers
have the hole and usually also
some jelly-like deposits at the en-
trance. Once in the fruit, there is
little the gardener can do since
sprays would render the produce
inedible if they were systemic into
the fruit. Control to prevent entry
would require such frequent
spraying that it would be imprac-
tical for most home garden situa-
tions. As a result, the rule of
thumb for growing squash and
cucumber in our area is "plant as
early as you can, harvest while
you can, and pull up the plants
when the bugs start taking more
of the fruit than you get.
One of the things every gar-
dener should accept responsibili-
ty for is the safe storage of chemi-
cals they use in the garden. While
the chemicals available for over
the counter sale are considered
safe if applied at recommended
rates and in a manner consistent

When You Feed A Garden, You Starve A Landfill
Stop dumping on America. That's
the message for the '90s as the coun-
try faces the greatest environmental
crisis in its history. Nearly one-third
of the existing municipal landfills will
be full within the next five to seven
years. What's more, some states, in-
cluding New Jersey, Florida and Min-
nesota, have already banned the
disposal of leaves and other yard waste
in landfills or incinerators.
So, how does the country spell
It's not just another dirty word.
Composting is the process of turning
organic materials-grass clippings,
leaves and twigs, as well as coffee
grinds, vegetable scraps and egg
shells-into humus, a rich soil nutrient.
Finished compost or humus is one
of the best soil conditioners around. A
healthy dose of humus enables sandy
soil to retain water and nutrients, and
helps clay soil drain and "breathe"
properly. It also releases nutrients
slowly but steadily, so they do not bum
or harm plants. And humus stimulates
the spread of beneficial microorganisms
in the soil, which are constantly at
work improving soil structure and
fighting disease-bearing bacteria.
To produce faster composting
action, add "Nature's Best" brand
Compost Acti-Vator. This all-natural,
organic product is specifically design-
ed to speed up the chemical and
bacterial action needed to decompose
Even novice gardeners can produce
useful compost throughout the year.
For best results, follow these simple
guidelines to convert big piles of refuse
into little piles of compost:
* Start with the pile. A compost pile
can be located on the ground, or con-
tained in a simple enclosure or in a
30-55 gallon plastic bag. Be sure to
place bins on a well-drained site that
is shaded from direct sunlight. If the
pile or bin is uncovered, put a sheet
of plastic on top to keep out excess
moisture, which slows decomposition.
When using a plastic bag, shake or
invert it. Also, punch holes to allow
air to enter, and keep the top of the bag
* Feed it a balanced diet. Use most-
ly plant matter, and don't add meats,
fats or dairy waste, all of which ac-
tually slow composting. Your goal is
to achieve a mixture of-four parts
carboni-based lplant material (including
leaves;, sawdust and even Spanish
moss) to one part nitrogen-based plant
material, such as grass clippings and
* Shred material before composting.
Chop materials or put them through a
shredder. Shredded material creates
more surface area for hungry micro-
organisms to feed on.
* Layer your pile. Build your com-
post pile in layers, watering each as it
is completed. Start with two or three
inches of coarse materials, such as
cornstalks, twigs or straw to let air
reach the bottom of the pile. Next, add
three to six inches of organic materials.
Sprinkle two cups of "Nature's Best"
Compost Acti-Vator over a 3' x 4' x
6" pile. Continue layering the pile until
you reach a height of 30 inches.
* Measure the temperature. Ideally,
the compost should "cook" at 140 to
160 degrees for the first few days, high
enough to destroy weed seeds and
disease organisms. Special ther-
mometers are available to keep track
of compost temperatures.
* Turn the pile. Composting requires
air, so don't forget to turn the pile
every two to seven days. The process
of turning the pile provides an oppor-
tunity to add more shredded green and
* Keep the pile moist. But not soggy.
A handful of compost feels about the
same as a squeezed-out sponge. If you
keep the pile damp and turn it every
few days, you'll have compost ready
to use in six to eight weeks.
Gardeners who compost are safely
returning kitchen debris and yard waste
to the soil. It's an easy, safe and
environmentally-wise alternative to
sending garbage to overflowing land-
fills. In addition, composted soil is
a much healthier place for your plants

*If the child does not swim, a
Type II Child or Infant device is
recommended to keep the child
face up on the water.
*Be sure to try the PFD on
the child in the store. Be sure it
fits snugly, and to test it lift the
child up by the shoulders of the
PFD to make sure it will not slip
over the chin or ears.
*Children tend to panic when
they fall in the water, which can
make it dangerous even with a
PFD. It is important to get them
used to wearing it in the water.
*Even- though a PFD is de-
signed to keep a child afloat, it
does not substitute for supervi-
sion. Never leave a child unat-
tended. Discourage running,
pushing and boisterous play on a
boat or near the water.

First Union Announces Dividends
First Union Corporation has
reported $73 million, or 67 cents
per common share, in net income
applicable to common stockhold-
ers for the first quarter of 1991.
This compared with $47 mil-
lion, or 43 cents, in the fourth
quarter of 1990 and $71 million,
or 67 cents, a year ago. First
quarter 1990 results Included
Florida National Banks of Florida
Inc. from January 29, 1990,
when First Union completed its
purchase accounting acquisition.
'"We continued to make
progress in a difficult operating
environment, particularly in di-
versifying our sources of income
and controlling expenses," said
Edward E. Crutchfield Jr., First
Union Corporation chairman and
chief executive officer. "However,
increases in nonperforming as-
sets and slowing loan demand
still are hampering earnings
growth. These trends will likely
continue until the recession runs
First quarter 1991 results in-
cluded $29 million from the sale
of investment securities. First
quarter 1991 results also reflect-
ed an increase of $14 million in

fourth quarter of 1990 and a 9
percent increase from $332 mil-
lion in the first quarter of 1990.
Continued growth from capi-
tal management income, mort-
gage banking income and other
service fees contributed to non-

the first quarter of 1991. This
was a 17 percent increase from
$158 million in the fourth quarter
of 1990 and a 54 percent in-

Medical Center Changes Name Rainfall can

l liW be Known As North Florida Medical Centers In the ture
The Board of Directors of the Wewahitchka
Medical Center, Inc. has approved a change in
the corporate name to North Florida Medical
Centers, Inc. the not-for-profit corporation will
maintain its headquarters in- Wewahitchka,
and continue operating three primary care cen-
ters under the names of Wewahitchka Medical
and Dental Center, Carrabelle Medical Center
and Wakulla Medical Center. In announcing
the change, Chief Executive Officer Jim
McKnight stated, "the Board felt that the new
name better describes the area-wide medical
services we provide, and identifies our achieve-
ments and objectives."
North Florida Medical Centers, Inc. serves
rural communities that have been traditionally
medically underserved. States McKnight, 'We
try to serve the whole community. We can pro-
vide services to lower income families with a
sliding fee scale. We accept most private insu-
rance policies, as well as Medicare and Medic-
aid." The corporation receives 41 percent of its
funding from a federal grant, with the remain-
ing funds received from services rendered, pri-
vate donations and private foundation grants.
Based on current figures, the three centers will
provide medical services to 25,000 patients
during the coming year. Additionally, health
promotion, disease prevention, and a variety of
health screenings will be provided to the people
of Gulf, Franklin, and Wakulla counties.
McKnight further states, .'We continue to
grow, both in the number of services we pro-
vide and the quality of service and have con-
tracted with two family practitioners who will
begin seeing patients on August 1, 1991." Addi-
tionally, a third family practitioner has been of-
fered a contract and is expected to begin pro-
viding services in the near future.
Four Simple Rules Can Prevent
Fun from Turning to Tragedy
Boating accident investigators
with the Florida Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission don't
look forward to working during
the July 4 holiday. That's when
more boating accidents occur
than during any other weekend.
With the holiday approaching,
officers are asking boaters to use
courtesy and common sense to
"People don't realize it, but
boating is stressful," said Col.
Bob Edwards, director of the Divi-
sion of Law Enforcement for the
Commission. "Studies have
shown that exposure to the sun,
wind, engine noise, vibration and
constant motion can slow reac-
tion time significantly."
Consuming alcoholic beverag-
es makes the situation worse. Pe-
ripheral vision is reduced and
hearing is made less acute. Most
operators who have been drinking
don't recognize the effects, so
they feel fine until they crash into
a dock or something else.
To date, 47 people have died
this year on Florida's waterways,
and 170 people have been in-
jured. The Commission suggests
these courtesy and common
sense rules for boating safety:
1. Wear your personal flota-
tion device (PFD). Boating safety
officials estimate that 80 percent
of boating fatality victims would
have had a chance for survival if
they had been wearing a PFD.
2. Don't drink and drive.
More than 50 percent of Florida's
boating accidents are alcohol-
related. Designate a boat driver
and insist that that person re-
3. Be courteous on the water.
Slow down when you see a
downed skier. Reduce your wake
in areas with many boats and in
areas where people are swim-
ming. Avoid competition on the
4. Reduce your stress if the
outing is a long one. Drop anchor
near land and take a walk to re-
duce tension from motor vibra-
tions and to stretch and loosen
your muscles. Sit in the shade to
give your eyes a break from the
sun and wind. Drink lost of fresh
water to avoid dehydration ind

Rainfall associated with hur-
ricanes can also be deadly. The
greatest threat is in the more hilly
or mountainous terrain outside of
Florida. However, the danger of
drowning from flooding caused by
excessive rainfall in Florida hurri-
canes should not be under-
estimated, especially away from
the immediate coastal sections.
Unlike the storm surge and
the destruction caused by winds
of a hurricane, torrential rainfall
associated with tropical cyclones
is not related to the strength of
the hurricane in any way. The im-
portant factor is the speed of the
hurricane the slower it moves
over an area, the greater the rain-
fall amounts. In fact, some of the
heaviest rain amounts ever ob-
served occurred with either weak
hurricanes or even tropical
storms which remained essential-
ly stationary in an area for 24
hours or more.
An October tropical storm in
1941 produced 35 inches of rain
in 48 hours at Cross City, and a
hurricane in the same general
area in September of 1950 pro-
duced almost 25 inches near Ce-
dar Key in three days. Many other
sections have received over 15
inches of rain in one or two days.
These torrential rains will
cause emergency management of-
ficials to ask for evacuation of
some areas. Please heed their
advice when you are told to
evacuate. Do not base your de-
cision on past experience. That
can be deadly!
