Residents of Gulf County who
do any building on their property
in the future will more than likely
face slightly higher inspection
and permit fees.
Building Department direc-
tor, Ralph Rish advised the Com-
mission Tuesday that there was a
need to take a look at setting rea-
listic fees for building and electri-
cal inspections and permits. "We
especially need to advance the
fees for electrical inspections,"
Rish said. "Presently we charge
$25.00 for permitting an electri-
cal entrance installation. Under
the Southern Standard Building
Code, which Gulf County uses, it
requires the inspector to make
three trips to the site for inspec-
tion. You just can't pay a man to
make three trips and cover the
expenses with a $25.00 charge."
Rish recommended that since
the County uses the Southern
Building Code as their guidelines
for inspection, that they also
adopt the SBC schedule of in-

to have all his ribs broken, as

moved to a private room.
A Havana juvenile, who was
driving a 1991 Ford Escort, was
treated for a broken collar bone
and released. Spokesmen from
the Gulf County Sheriffs Depart-
ment credits his lack of injuries
to the fact his car was equipped
with an air bag and he was wear-
ing a seatbelt.
The crash occurred on High-
way 71, under the red light. The
Escort was travelling east on
Highway 22, at a high rate of
speed, and failed to stop at the
intersection, striking Gaskin's
pick-up truck on the driver's side.

. Gen. Norman Relives 'Desert Storm'
Lieutenant General Charles Norman,
director of the combined air war against
Iraq, was unashamedly proud of the ef-
fectiveness and the commitment of the
American fighting man in Operation
Desert Storm and expressed this pride be-
fore a gathering of Port St. Joe's civic
club members at a Tuesday dinner meet-
ing held at the St. Joseph Bay Country
General Norman was also equally
proud of the performance of President
George Bush in the entire Persian Gulf
operation, saying the President was pri-
marily concerned with providing the
troops with the weapons and technical
tools necessary to minimize the loss of
life on both sides of the front. "He wasn't
concerned with the political 'points' he
may or may not make with any particular
decision," the General said.
The General said another primary
concern was in the, attitude of the Saudi
Arabian people. "Some of their leaders
were afraid for America to come to their
land. When they finally agreed for us to
come, we had planes landing on Saudi
soil within 17 hours, to begin the build-
up and to stand as a deterrent force
against Saddam Hussein."
The speaker also took the opportunity
to put in a plug for SDI and the B-2
bomber. "We need those weapons and
the technology is already available for
both," he said.
He pointed out that civilians in the
operation zone were all scared to death of
the SCUD missiles. 'They weren't accu-
rate, but they were very destructive," he
pointed out. 'The Patriots intercepted the
scuds, but all they did was divert them
from our street to your street. We needed
something to intercept them in the at-
mosphere before they became a prob-
Gen. Norman said the Americans
went into the war with technology which
hadn't been tested in action before. 'We
weren't real sure how effective it would
be, but it turned out to meet our every
expectation and then some." He praised
the 'Stealth' bombers for their actions in
knocking out Iraqi tanks at a rate of
about 175 per day. 'The Iranians soon
learned to keep a safe distance from their
tanks, as they were such a favorite target
of a devastating American air war."
PRAISES YOUNG PEOPLE
The speaker said he' had nothing but
praise for America's young people. "They
went about their job determined to do it
right and get back home. They were dedi-
cated to their mission and supported
their country and national leadership."
He praised the nation's young people
who were involved in the operation as be-
ing "Great. They're good! They got
that from somewhere. They didn't com-
plain, they just went about what they
had to do in a methodical manner and
were a credit to their country."
General Norman said, '"The hardest
part of the operation was being away
from our families. The greatest thing we
got out of the war was a renewed pride
and support of our country. It was great!"
He said it was evident, even in Saudi
Arabia, that Americans were supporting
their fighting men. "We also felt the pow-
er of the many prayers issued in our be-
Norman concluded his address, say-
ing that one Saudi official made the re-
mark, "If there must be a super power in
this world today, thank God it's Ameri-
ca." He said that statement expressed the
trust by the Saudis, that the U.S. would
show consideration for the people in that
part of the world.

Inspection jobs, which take up
the bulk of the inspector's time,
due to the numbers of permits
and inspections made and do not
produce enough revenue to sup-
ply the service.
A minimum permit [which re-
quires site inspection visits] is
currently $10.00. Rish recom-
mends hiking the fee to $50.00.
Currently, a minimum electric in-
spection [requiring three visits] is
now $25.00. Rish suggested a
$50.00 fee for this service. Other
charges would see both increases'
and decreases by lesser amounts.
Chairman Ed Creamer in-
structed Rish to make out a list
of an entirely new fee schedule
and present it to the Commission
Commissioner Al Ray told the
Commission Tuesday that resi-
dents at Cape San Blas and St.
Joseph Peninsula want a speed
limit placed on C-30E, because of
congestion on the Peninsula road,
which leads to the State Park.
"I would suggest that we set a
speed limit of 45 miles per hour,
reducing the limits to 35 miles
per hour in congested areas," Ray
Since residents on the Penin-
sula want the speed limit set, the
board agreed to go through the
procedure to declare the traffic
rule and post signs advising mo-
torists along the route.
Bill Kuyper, representing the
St Joseph Bay Committee told
the Commission the committee
was recommending something be
- .dene about the scallop season-irn
St Joseph Bay.
'The season opens every year
on July 1, and people turn out in
force to harvest them, but they
are so small that harvesting them
on July 1 is really a waste. We
would like to see the Commission
use its influence to have the
opening day for taking scallops
moved back to August 1, to allow
them an extra month to increase
in size, Kuyper said.
Commissioners Al Ray and
Ed Creamer confirmed Kuyper's
statement, with Creamer saying,
'They're so small that by the time
a person picks up his bucket-full,
he is too tired to clean them and
they end up being thrown in the
Ray said he supported mov-
ing the season back to July 15,
"at least", and preferred an Au-
gust I season opener.
The Commission unanimous-
ly supported August 1 as the be-
ginning of the season and agreed
to petition the Florida Depart-
ment of Natural Resources to
amend the law regulating the
scallop season in St.'Joseph Bay.
Kuyper remarked, 'There
PAGE TWO THURSDAY, JULY 11, 1991
247Didn't Die \Hunker Down with Kes
A newscast the other day revealed there were 247 fewer high-
way fatalities this year, by mid-year, than there had been report-
ed during the same length of time last year, here in Florida. It
seems there had been some 1,500 highway deaths the first half
of 1990 and only 1,253 thus far this year.
We're not real sure about the actual figures quoted, as we
heard it in passing to something else. The figures are within
about two percent of being correct, which in itself makes a con-
siderable savings in human life becauseof traffic accidents.
One of the things we're sure of is that the commentator said
officials were puzzled over why there was such a dramatic drop
in highway fatalities. He pointed out that the officials expected
the figure to at least hold its own for 1991, but here we have a
sizeable drop in statistics. The savings in lives reported would
just about equal a sizeable Sunday morning church congrega-
tion in most of Port St. Joe's larger churches. That's a lot of peo-
ple who didn't die.
We've been thinking of these startling figures for about 10
days now, wondering, along with the commentator, just why we
should experience such a sudden and sizeable drop in this trag-
After considerable thought, we have come to the conclusion
that the savings in life is being caused by Florida's tough drunk
driving laws. Here in Florida, we have some of the toughest pen-
alties for driving under the influence of any state in the union. A
person convicted of the act here in Florida can expect to pay
hefty fines, do either time in jail or community service activities,
attend special classes over a considerable period of time, and/or
face the loss of his/her driving license for a period of time.
Whatever penalty is assessed to a driver, operating a motor
vehicle while drinking, it is enough to make the culprit stop and
think-if not prior to driving while drinking, at least he will do so
after he is caught once.
Here in Florida, we are beginning to take the crime of driving
under the influence seriously. Most residents of Florida who do
not drink and drive, are thankful for the law which serves to re-
move much of this hazard from the roadways. The added bonus
seems to be that 247 people who would normally have died on
the state's highways during the first half of this year, didn't!
What Sorta Man...
Momma used to tell us that we are known by the company
we keep. With this admonition in mind, she would advise us to
choose our friends wisely and not get mixed up with the wrong
We can't argue with Momma's logic, nor her advice.
During the past couple of weeks, it has dawned upon us that
there is an additional observation which could be added to Mom-
ma's advice, which serves the same purpose as the words she
laid on us five boys.
Since President George Bush has recommended Judge Clar-
ence Thomas to fill the vacancy left on the U.S. Supreme Court
by the sudden resignation of Thurgood Marshall, this additional
observation has come to the surface.
With the nomination of Judge Thomas by the President, eve-
rybody in the nation began to wonder about what kind of person
- and-what kind of Judge is this fellow Thomas and just what
kind of Supreme Court Justice will he make? How are we ever
going to reach a conclusion about someone we have never heard
Well, it seems that by using Momma's advice, we have
learned that Judge Thomas mixes and mingles with the sort of
folks who believe this nation offers a splendid and equal oppor-
tunity for everyone to take advantage of, but who seem to take a
dim view of people expecting opportunities to be handed to them
on a silver platter, again and again, and again, and still cry out
for morel Morel More!
Judge Thomas has arrived at the same conclusion as most of
those who are paying the bill for these continued handouts.
Judge Thomas seems to run with the type people who have
But, there is another side, to this coin. It would seem that in
recent days, the Supreme Court nominee has drawn fire from
even some of his own race for not supporting the continued pipe-
line of money being funneled out of Washington indefinitely.
With the Judge drawing fire from people of the liberal per-
suasion, we think it will be just a little easier to arrive at a deci-
sion as to what sort of man Judge Thomas is. It'll be easy for
most of us to support this President Bush nominee.

A OIN SHRDL U
By: Wesley R. Ramsey
Newspapers Faced A Tough Survival In Port St. Joe In the Past
DID YOU KNOW that The
Star isn't the first newspaper to
be in business in Port St. Joe. Of
course, if you know any history at
all, you probably know that the
St. Joseph Times was printed at
old St. Joseph back in the 1800's,
around 1838. It, like St. Joseph,
didn't last for very long. Actually,
St. Joseph out-lived The Times.
The Times, and its editor, Pe-
ter Gautler, were pretty famous in
the new state of Florida back in
those days. I can just imagine
that anyone who could read,
write and spell were a scarce
commodity back then, and so,
earned a certain amount of re-
spect due to this capability.
Old Pete Gautier was a shak-
er and a mover in the early days
of the Territory and was largely
responsible for Florida taking the
steps toward becoming a state
and he was also instrumental in
promoting the formation of the
old city of St. Joseph.
Pete Gautier was not your or-
dinary man and, he published a
newspaper in old St. Joseph.
W. S. Smith, the founder of
The Star, once told me that had
he known of the former existence
of The Times when The Star was
brought into being, your local
newspaper would have been
named The Times. But, the new
paper was founded and operating
before he found out about the
previous existence of The Times.
THERE WAS another news-
paper here just months prior to
The Star coming into being. There
was The Sentinel operating out of
a small wooden building where
Costin's Department Store is
now. The Sentinel folded in the
early 40's, leaving only The Star
to carry on the business of a
newspaper until this day, in Port
The Sentinel was founded by
C. F. Hanlon. editor and publish-
er of The Gull County Breeze, and
later sold to a man by the name
of Larry Evans. Hanlon founded
The Breeze back around 1925,
when Gulf County was sliced off
JUST, LAST WEEK, Jack
Tanner of White City brought me
a copy of the Apalachicola Times,
printed May 26, 1926, announc-
ing that, "a newspaper company
is being formed in Port Saint
The company had such famil-
iar names on its ownership and
management list as: R. L. Howell,
who was general freight and pas-
senger agent of the AN Railroad
at that time; A. M. Jones, a Port
St. Joe pioneer; J. L. Sharit and
T. H. Stone, well-known names in
Port St. Joe history, and both
long-time mayors; C. B. McCra-
nie, a Rev. Taylor, who was pas-
tor of the Methodist Church at
Other personalities invhwolved
with forming the newspaper were
Harry Sawyer and H. K. John-
ston, who was publisher of the
Apalachicola Times at the time.
The Times was owned by the Saw-
yer family. Johnson's wife was a
Sawyer. After Johnston died,
Sawyer took over operation of the
newspaper until it was sold out of
the family to other owners in the
As I see it, the Times owners
were interested in printing a
paper for Port St. Joe and were
probably instrumental in talking
the other men into forming a
company to do just that.
THESE MEN MET in the of-
fices of the Apalachicola Northern
Railroad Company on May 30,
1926, and formed the new news-
paper, declaring a stock issue of
$10,000, with shares valued at
No matter that $10,000
wouldn't even buy a typesetter to-
day. nor even one unit of a news-
paper press to print that paper
on; the men were organized and
Officers of the new paper
were: R. L. Howell, president; D.
H. Bynum, vice-president and C.
B. McCranie, secretary-treasurer.
The newspaper was named,
The Port St. Joe News and was to
be printed every Friday. The first
issue was scheduled for publica-
tion on June 11, just 11 days af-
ter the new venture was formed.
The newspaper was probably
printed in Apalachicola on The
Times' equipment. Ironically, to-
day The Times is printed in Port
St. Joe, on The Star's equipment.
Now, get this: subscription
rates were $1.00 per year as an
introductory offer, with the rate
to be hiked to $1.50 after the first
month of publication.
I don't know if that first issue
was ever printed or not. If it was
printed, I don't know how long
the newspaper existed, but since
it was formed in May of 1926.
and since the big crash came in
1929, 1 would have to believe the
newspaper went along with many
other enterprises in 1929, if it
lasted that long.
BUT PORT ST. JOE wasn't
exactly a destitute place in those
Another article on the front
page of that old issue of The Apa-
lachicola Times told of shipments
of lumber out of Port St. Joe,
amounting to a million board feet
in one week. The article told of
the booming lumber shipping
business in the port, with two
schooners tied up at the docks on
the same day, loading lumber
bound for Cuba.
However long the new ven-
ture lasted, it had a value. Many
of us-me included-would never
have learned this little bit of his-
tory, if a newspaper hadn't been

I Had A Dream
Age and over indulgence has forced me to cut back on my
coffee drinking and caffeine intake. Too much caffeine makes me
extremely nervous, especially on an empty stomach. It will also
keep me awake at night, and when I do fall asleep I will dream, it
seems, all night long.
Just last week I had such a night. I had attended an eve-
ning meeting and drank two cups of coffee and it was close to
10:00 p.m. before I could drift off to sleep. And when I did fall
asleep, the dream began.
The dream started early Sunday morning as I was drinking
coffee and reading the paper. I decided to check my lotto ticket
with the numbers in the paper, and, guess what? I had won the
It was a wonderful feeling, that sudden rush of excitement,
knowing that I would never have to work again unless I wanted
to. When I- checked with Tallahassee I found that I had won
$15,867,562.41, before taxes, of course. As I remember the
dream, I was to receive a yearly check for a tad over $700,000.00
for 20 years. That amount, I figured, would last me for several
months before I had to start borrowing money again.
In the dream and shortly after my winning ticket was validat-
ed, my mother and father-in-law suddenly appeared. After much
prayer and thought, they said, they had decided to forgive me for
marrying their daughter. As a reward I bought them a home in
California and furnished them maid service for the rest of their
As the dream continued, my wife suddenly approached me
and handed me an envelope. Inside were all her credit cards, cut
in half, and with tears in her eyes as big as marbles, she said,
"Here, honey. I won't be needing these any more. From now on
I'm going to pay cash like you've wanted me to all along." I don't
remember, but I think I cried, too.
After that all my children, one by one, approached me and, in
their own words, told me that they didn't really think I was the
old "fogy" they once thought I was. They also said that from that
point on they were going to listen to What I said and would agree
with me when they could or until the money ran out.
Later in the dream I found myself at the post office checking
the mail. And what to my wandering eyes do you think did ap-
pear? Why, it was a letter from the Franklin County Humane So-
ciety Executive Committee. The letter was one of apology. In it all
seven members apologized for writing the letter to the editor
about the article I wrote about Duke, my faithful dog and com-
panion. They admitted that they read too much into. the article
and wouldn't have me arrested after all.
Finally, I found myself at the golf course. The match is over
and I'm loading all my winnings into an armored car.
As the armed guard holds all my opponents at bay, I realize
that Roy, Gary, and a few others will have to mortgage their
homes to pay me. Suddenly I feel a rush of empathy and tear up
the mortgage papers and take their cars and golf clubs instead. I
also take their golf shoes and leave them high and dry in the
parking lot with these words: "Let that be a lesson to you about
Dreams, however, are like vacations, it seems. When they are
over, and even if they are good, you don't know if it was worth it
or not. Reality is hard to face sometimes.

Ralph Rish, who is coordinat-
ing the County's $3 million pav-
ing program, said this week that
re-surfacing of Port St. Joe
streets will be delayed from four
to six weeks.
The delay is being caused be-
cause the Commission rejected
both bids received two weeks ago,
because they were both for more
than the money available to pay
for the project.
'The Board agreed to re-
advertise the project, making
some changes in the projects to
be paved," Rish said.
With a total of $1 million plus
change available for paving in the
City of Port St. Joe and the
Beaches projects, both bids, from
Florida Asphalt and C.W. Roberts
Construction Company were
more than money available.
Rish said the delay caused by
re-bidding the projects would
probably mean that the actual
work of paving should begin in
September, "If we don't have any
more delays along the way," Rish
In the meantime, City crews
are keeping busy correcting un-
derground problems which have
caused sinks .in the present pav-
ing, before re-surfacing is done.
City public work supervisor,
Frank Healy said, 'The delay in
re-surfacing should work in our
favor. We should have all the
problem spots we know about re-
paired prior to a September start-
ing date for the paving. We have
only eight streets remaining in
our repair program."
Healy said their program may
not correct all situations which
exist on city streets. 'You can't
really tell anything is wrong un-

dence on the surface, or dig down

Shingles in Adults
*'..'* Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.
S.... -' j
With a flurry of chickenpox in the area, it might be good to re-
view some of what we know about the disease and its management.
A primary case of Varicella-Zoster Virus disease is chickenpox.
Most people are exposed to this in childhood and have a relatively
After the primary illness, the virus remains around but dor-
mant. If the virus becomes activated in later life, the person devel-
ops shingles. You will hear about children developing chickenpox
after an adult has shingles same disease.
The incubation period for chickenpox in a susceptible person,
is usually 14-16 days. It can be as early as 11 days or as late as 20
If you know your child has been exposed to chickenpox, you be-
gin watching for signs or symptoms of the disease about two weeks
after exposure. These signs and symptoms do not usually amount
to much. A slight fever and then a few red spots. The spots begin
up around the head and neck and spread outward and down along
the body extremities. The skin lesions are red spots about the size
of the tip of your little finger. In the center of the red spot is a tiny
blister that may not be obvious unless you look at the red spot at
an angle. The spots itch. The children scratch and shortly there are
red crusting sores.
Baths with cornstarch, baking soda, and oatmeal have all been
tried to help the itching. Calamine lotion will often help the itching
and some people find Benadryl by mouth to help. You can keep an
older child occupied by giving him a watercolor brush and letting
him paint the sores with calamine lotion as they itch. This gives
him something to do besides scratch.
People with chickenpox are contagious until they are no longer
getting new sores and all the lesions are crusted over. Children can
return to activities with all sores crusted, but often they feel strange
about doing so and feel that other children will poke fun at.them.
They may elect to remain at home until all the crusts are gone.
Patients with chickenpox should not -receive aspirin because
there is an increased incidence of Reye's Syndrome in chickenpox
patients receiving aspirin. Instead of aspirin, acetominophen (Tyle-
nol) may be given for fever or comfort.
Healthy children will usually not have complications after
chickenpox. Problems can arise in several situations. The baby
born to a woman who was ill with chickenpox in the first and early
second trimester of the pregnancy, may be born with several differ-
ent birth defects. If the mother develops the disease just before or
just after delivery, the baby can be very ill and some die. The most
common complication of chickenpox in adults is pneumonia.
Immuno-compromised patients (children being treated for leu-
kemias, cancer, arthritis, and AIDS) can become deathly ill with
chickenpox. Fortunately, there are current treatments that can be
used in these extreme situations.
There is currently a vaccine being licensed for use in the United
States. This vaccine was developed and has been used for years in
Japan. The vaccine is anticipated to be licensed soon and we expect
chickenpox to go the way of diphtheria, whooping cough, and teta-
nus and disappear.

tions that will help you manage.
*Don't get used to seeing that
pile. (And that doesn't mean play-
ing hide and go seek with the
laundry, either!) Do your laundry
more often, in smaller loads, so
"Laundry Day" doesn't take all
*Separate your lighter colors
from the darker ones. New fabrics
still have excess dyes that "bleed"
and make white underwear and t-
shirts turn pink. Do an extra load
for dark clothes if necessary.
*If you are paying for utilities,
are environmentally-conscious, or
both, you realize it takes more en-
ergy and money to heat water
than to use cold water during the
rinse cycle. Set the dial of the
washing machine for a cold rinse.
You'll be surprised at how clean
your clothes will come out
*Clean the lint basket before
every use of the clothes dryer.

WHAT IS A ROOT CANAL?
Years ago, a badly infect-
ed tooth was doomed to be
pulled. Today, that's a last re-
sort. Root canal treatment
consists of: 1) the removal of
the infected pulp that lies with-
in the root canals of the tooth,
and 2) the sealing of the root
ends to prohibit any further in-
The pulp is the tooth's
center core of soft tissue
(nerves, blood vessels and fi-
bers). When the dentist re-
moves a "nerve" from a tooth,
he really removes pulpal tis-
sue that contains the nerve.
Removing the pulp from
the tooth does not produce a
"dead" tooth. It will be very
much alive and functioning be-
cause it has a source of blood
and nerve supply from the sur-
rounding tissues that hold it in
place. The tooth will have no
sense of feeling because the
nerve has been removed, but
the tooth itself will be fine: it
should last as long as your
other teeth and could even be
eventually used as an anchor
tooth for a denture or bridge.
Prepared as a public ser-
vice to promote better dental
health. From the office of:

MFC Proposes New Mullet Rule
The Marine Fisheries Com-
mission held a final public hear-
ing regarding amendments to the
mullet rule, developed further
policy to manage the mullet fish-
ery, and provided staff with direc-
tions concerning future manage-
ment of the spiny lobster fishery
during a two day meeting held
this week at the Mote Marine La-
boratory in Sarasota.
Mullet Final Public Hear-
The Commission received
public comment and voted to pro-
pose amendments to the mullet
rule that would change the daily
bag limit for recreational fisher-
men to 50 per person or vessel,
whichever is less, and delete the
"restricted species" provisions in
the rule for the Panhandle Region
(a previous proposal to specify al-
lowable recreational fishing gear
for mullet was removed and will
be considered as part of the Com-
mission's statewide fishing gear
rule now in development). These
rule amendment proposals will go
to the Governor and Cabinet for
approval on July 23, 1991.
Mullet Other Policy Deci-
The Commission received sci-
entific testimony and public com-
ment regarding the Commission's
policy to develop a management
plan to protect and replenish the
mullet fishery, and voted to pro-
pose the following:
Escambia through Hernando
Counties: closure of all harvest
(commercial and recreational)
during a seven day period each
month (the 22nd through the
28th) in the months of September
through December each year,
with a 500 pound daily commer-
cial trip limit January through
August each year
Pasco County through Gulf
Waters of Monroe County and
Lake Okeechobee: closure of all
harvest (commercial and recrea-
tional) during a seven day period
each month (the 22nd through
the 28th year rourid, with a 500
pound daily commercial trip limit
February through September
East Coast Waters including
St. Johns River: closure of all
harvest (commercial and recrea-
tional) during a seven day period
each month (the 22nd through
the 28th) in the months of Octo-
ber through January each year,
with a 500 pound daily commer-
cial trip limit February through
September each year.
In addition, a maximum net
length of 600 yards for mullet
harvesting would be established
for all regions statewide. These
provisions listed above would re-
place the commercial weekend
closures during the roe mullet
season now in effect. The Com-
mission also voted to implement
further harvest restrictions over
three year periods when neces-
sary. The Commission intends to
hold a final public hearing on
these proposals in September.

Selection of plant material
will greatly affect the amount of
disease problems. Some plants
are very susceptible to diseases
while others have very few, if any,
disease problems. The use of na-

certain diseases are known to ex-

subject to these diseases.
Some diseases such as pow-
dery mildews and Botrytis Blights
are encouraged by high humidity
in plantings. Losses can be re-
duced by not crowding plants.
Think plants to permit free air
circulation and allow sunlight to
reach the lower parts of the
plants and soil.
Diseased branches and
shoots should be removed before
a disease can spread. In routine
pruning, always remove diseased
or unthrifty growth first and then
prune to control the size and
shape of the tree or shrub. Prun-
ing shears and saws can be
dipped in a weak alcohol solution
(1 part alcohol to 9 parts water)
to prevent the spread of disease
Many disease organisms car-
ry over from one season to the
next on fallen leaves. It is advisa-
ble to collect and dispose of this
diseased foliage. Do not include
diseased material in the compose
heap because of the danger of
survival of disease organisms and
The maintenance of a bal-
anced fertilizer and water pro-
gram generally produces plants
which have some resistance to
plant diseases. Some diseases,
such as certain cankers, are more
prevalent on plants that are un-
fed or suffering from drought.
However, other diseases such as
rusts and powdery mildews are
more severe on succulent growth.
High fertilizer content, especially
nitrogen, and abundant moisture
will favor these diseases. Excess
soil moisture may also lead to

root rot problems.
When a disease problem de-
velops in a planting, particularly
of annuals or succulent perenni-
als, the gardener should consider
moving the planting to a new lo-
cation. This is the same as crop
rotation that is commonly prac-
ticed by farmers. It permits the
plants to grow In soil relatively
free of disease organisms and
also hastens the natural decline
of these disease organisms in soil
where they have build up be-
cause of the growth of susceptible
Plant in a location suitable for

plants in exposed situations or
sun-loving plants in the shade.
Also, avoid extremely wet or dry
locations unless plants are suita-

diseases are favored by wet soils.
Creating good drainage may re-
duce the severity of these diseas-
Following these good cultural
practices will not guarantee dis-

Love Should be the Winner, But Is It?
Rev. Jerry Huft, Rector St. James and St. John's Churches
Love always wins, or does it'?
Jesus summarized the law by
telling us to love God more than
anything else and to love other
people the way we love ourselves.
This should be the winning for-
mula for successful living.
There are cases where mis-
sionaries have followed this ap-
proach to hostile people. After
much suffering they were able to
win converts and overcome great

All of these illustrations
would lead us to believe that if we
stick to our principles and always
respond with love, there will al-

Love is more than an attrib-
ute of God, the Bible Leaches that
God is love. He loves us before we
know Him,, and He loves us more
than we can comprehend. His de-
sire is that we love each other. He
derives pleasure when we learn to
return his love and share it with
others. This by itself is reason
enough to say that love conquers

life, there are great benefits for

Florida summers are a time

But the summer season is also
the time to prepare for hurri-

The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Servic-
es urges consumers to be pre-
pared by storing a two-week sup-
ply of non-perishable foods,
medication, fire extinguisher,
first-air kit, tools, battery-
powered radios and flashlights,
and extra batteries. Also, check
battery-powered equipment. A
battery-operated radio could be a
family's only source of informa-
tion during a hurricane if power
lines are down.
Consumers also should make
sure they have sufficient flood in-
surance. Damage from rising or
tidal water is specifically excluded
from a homeowners policy and
must be covered by flood insu-
rance issued under the National
Flood Insurance Program.
Flood insurance is a separate,
special policy, but it can be pur-
chased in conjunction with a
homeowners policy. However,
many insurance companies won't
issue new homeowners coverage
once an area has been placed un-

If a hurricane warning is is-

Board Adopts Educational Equity Rules
Superintendent of Schools, B. Walter Wilder, an-
nounced today that on July 2, 1991, the School Board
once again expressed the desire to comply with federal
and state regulations prohibiting discrimination:
"No person in this state shall, on the basis of
race, sex, national origin, marital status or
handicap, be excluded from participation in, be
denied the benefits of, or be subjected to dis-
crimination under any education program or ac-
tivity, or any employment condition or practices.
(Section 228.2001, F.S.)
Any violation of the provisions of this policy should be
reported to: Charles T. Watson, Director of Support Ser-
vices, Gulf County School Board, Gulf County Court-
house, Port St. Joe, FL 32456 or phone 229-8256 or
The School board has adopted a grievance procedure
to resolve complaints of discrimination. A copy of this
procedure is available in each school office, and in the
office of the Superintendent of Schools which is located
in the Gulf County Courthouse.
