H.V. Bridge Erection Scheduled to Get
Construction on the new White City high-
rise bridge is expected to be opened to traffic
around the end of August, and construction
on the new Highland View highrise is expected
to begin about the same time, Edward Pre-
scott, Director of Operations for the Depart-
ment of Transportation's Chip
the Kiwanis Club Tuesday,

)ley office told Prescott said the same firm which is build-
at their noon ing the White City bridge, L&A Contracting
Company of Hattiesburg, Mississippi, has the
$8,058,753 contract for the Highland View
span. L&A also built the new Apalachicola
River bridge a few years ago.
Prescott said the contract was awarded on
July 12, but the documents still have not
been signed. 'This is not unusual," Prescott
said. "It's normal for a few weeks to go by be-
fore both parties officially sign these con-
Immediately after the documents are
signed, Prescott said the two parties will get
together to agree on such items as suppliers,
method and style of construction, inspection,
days allowed beyond the 526 calendar days
allowed for construction without applying
penalties, agreement on various other aspects
of the construction process. "Then the actual
construction will begin, which I expect to get
underway about mid-fall," Prescott said.
The bridge, itself, will span some 2,600
i feet and approaches to the span will be anoth-
er 2,600 feet, with the span having a clear-
ance of 75 feet above the water line.
The new roadway will be built west [or on
the water side] of the current bridge. A road
will be built parallel to the fill on the north
side of the canal to allow traffic access to the
industrial development along the canal.
BRIDGE WILL BE UNIQUE
The 75 foot clearance will make the High-
land View bridge unique among highrise
bridges in the Florida Panhandle.
The height standard for Florida highrises
is 65 feet above the water line. The Highland
View installation will have an additional 10
foot rise in order to allow ocean-going barges
access to the Gulf County Canal and the In-
land Waterway. The bridge will allow the, only
access by ocean-going traffic to inland water-
ways between Mobile, Alabama and Tampa.
SThe structure of the new Highway 98
crossing over the Gulf County Canal outlet,
will be similar to that of the White City bridge.
It will be be placed on 24-inch square pilings
and will be designed to withstand ship impact.

Highland View and Beaches Operations Being Scrutinized
JTPA's Sandie Scott and Freida Sheffield listen as Jan
McDonald makes a presentation to Chamber of Commerce
members Tuesday morning.
JTPA Officials Outline
Activities to Chamber
Freida Sheffield, Executive Director of the Panhandle Private
Industry Council, led discussion of the services offered by the
agency to a breakfast gathering of Chamber of Commerce mem-
bers at J. Patrick's Restaurant Tuesday morning.
The JTPA, which the agency is better known by, is the acro-
nym for the federally administered Job Training Partnership Act.
The Panhandle Private Industry Council operates the program,
introducing jobs to people who need them, but are undertrained
in many cases to fill the jobs which are available. The agency
serves not only as an introductory party, but also helps with the
expense involved in training an undertrained employee to fill a
The agency makes its services available to high school stu-
dents, training for the work force; it encourages and helps drop-
outs to find employment as well as finish their high school edu-
cation and assists adults to find the training necessary to be-
come employed in new and unfamiliar trades.
Sandie Scott, who manages the Port St. Joe office of JTPA
told the Chamber members that in the Port St. Joe area, the ser-
vice helps adults who are having problems finding a job. "We
help introduce them to a prospective employer and partially pay

A budget which seems to defy
any attempts to reduce it to man-
ageable means was joined Tues-
day night, by reports of a need to
consider two other systems for fi-
nancial overhaul by the Gulf
Working on insistence of
Commissioner Billy Traylor that
community water services pay
their own way, the Board asked
special projects director, Ralph
Rish to head up a committee to
provide a special financial report
for the Beaches and Highland
View water systems, which was
presented to the Board Tuesday.
A second item, presented recent-
ly, and discussed Tuesday, was a
need to upgrade its building in-
spection fee schedule.
The Commission has suspect-
ed it all along, but the committee
report, presented by Rish pointed
out that both the Highland View
and Beaches water systems were
barely paying their way for opera-
tions and were making no provi-
sions for depreciation or repairs.
The Highland View system is
in the worse shape, according to
the report. This system borrowed
$123,000 with a bond issue back
in 1964. The issue is all due pay-

problem seems to be that their
rate structure does not reflect an

system is paying $1.80 for 1,000
gallons of treated water and sell-
ing it to their customers for
$1.60. The Beaches has 460 cuis-
tomers, some of whom do not live
there year-round, but still pay a
minimum water bill. It seems this
situation is the only thing which
is keeping the system afloat.

It evidently is not coming as a shock to local governments,
that the theme of the times is that taxes are not generating as
much money as they formerly did and the prevailing opinion
seems to be that governments not make up this shortfall in reve-
nue by levying additional taxes.
The reasons for the reduction in tax revenue, now, is that
those paying these taxes are not generating the kind of revenue
they generated back when the present tax sources were produc-
ing adequate money for the public coffers.
Only last week, the Federal government joined the crowd in
experiencing a shortfall on projected revenue. The shortfall, of
course, is being caused by a reduced amount of earnings by tax
payers. When tax payers are earning less, causing a shortfall at
the old taxing rate, they aren't prone to sit still for new taxes to
make up the shortfall from their present tax source. It Is no easi-
er to pay for new taxes than it is to pay more taxes on the old
One example of this situation is the current activities of the
taxation committee of the State of Florida, currently studying
the state's tax base and recommendations for an overhaul.
A prime vehicle to provide more taxes being recommended by
the tax examination committee, is to remove present exemptions
from the sales tax law, including groceries, medicines, services,
etc. These items are presently exempt, even though some of our
neighbor states collect sales taxes on these items. This situation
also allows some of them to levy a lower rate of sales taxes per
$1.00, than Florida does. There is no guarantee that this situa-
tion would roll over into Florida. Our state started with a three
cent sales tax levy and the amount is now up to six percent,
with more items being taxed than when the program first begun.
So, there is no precedent to lower the tax rate, with the levy
against groceries, medicines, etc. There is also no precedent for
keeping the levy at a lower rate, even though such a new plan
With budget time here to remind us of how much each of us
as an individual is paying into our state, county and city coffers,
and facing the prospects of having to pay even more, we're sus-
ceptible to almost any idea which may serve to spread this tax
burden around and include some of those property owners who
are now getting a free ride.
Easy to Make
Like the New York Times being constantly reminded of their
famous headline which proclaimed New York Governor Tom
Dewey as the winner of the 1948 Presidential race over Harry S.
Truman, most newspapers receive constant reminders that
something they said or did was wrong, when it turned out that
This is how it has been with The Star, and its now famous
mistake, concerning General Homer. We have received constant
digs, reminders, and good-natured kidding about the mistake.
Some of those who reminded us, took advantage of remind-
ing i~Aice again how dumb they think we are. Most, however,
umndstood that nobody is perfect, even with Important matters,
and had a good time ribbing us for making the mistake. We can
laugh right along with these people and the others we
wouldn't have drawn our dissenters' approval if we had been in-
strumental in helping the General to be awarded the Distin-
guished Service medal, or paid his way to and from Saudi Ara-
What we're saying is that there is no way to please some peo-
ple, while others are pleased to find you are just as human as
they are, in the mistake making department.
Please understand there is no way we would try to justify the
error we made. We're not trying to do this. We are trying to show
you that all newspapers make errors every day. The largest and
the smallest are prone to mistakes. It is a miracle there aren't
more of them made than presently occur. If all readers were fa-
miliar with the pressures and the rush to get a paper out, by
deadline time; if they understood the logistics involved for a
small weekly to get a story collected, written, set up in type, pic-
tures taken, developed, printed and half-tones made between a
Tuesday at 1:30 to Wednesday at noon, along with the thousand
and one other things which must be done to pull a paper togeth-
er, fill every column exactly from top to bottom and every page
exactly from side to side and see there are no errors in any of
this activity, they would marvel that there are no more errors to
crow over than they presently have.
IHunker Down with Kes
Out of the Mouths of Babes
I tell you, It s new and differ-
ent. This Is my first 15-year-old -
- do they all think they are
grown? I quit answering the
phone two or three years ago. I
got tired of taking messages.
Now, we did get a call in April of
1989 that I thought was going to
be for me. Turned out to be Judy
from Time-Life. Shucks, that's
not a real call. I talked to her any-
way asked her about the fami-
ly, how her kids were doing;
which did she sell more of, the
Civil War set or that series about
the kitchens and bathrooms. I fig-
ured I needed the practice. You
can't never tell. Josh may hang
up for a second to Fix him another

tonight." Cathy,. as always, got in
the last word.
And then some.
You need to be nice to Josh
and all his friends. Fifteen is a
special age. You remember being
young and having lady friends.
When she comes over, try to be
nice for a change."
Why, when I was 15, we
played baseball, caught frogs,
swung across the big ditch on a
grape vine.... we didn't even have
a phone.... no use to get into that,
I think I have mentioned it to
them nice for a change Wait a
minute. I'm nice. I know this girl.
Josh has been going steady with
her near 'bout since the second
grade. I feel like she is part of the
family. Her name is Tandy or
Nandy or something like that.
Cute little girl.
And I am friendly when she
shows up at the house. I lean
down kind'a close to her face,
study hard for a minute or so and
say, "Josh, this is not the same
girl that came over last night."
Landy don't talk to me much.
That's why I was a little sur-
prised when she decided to go to
the golf course with me and Josh
the other day. You know how hot
it's been lately too hot for me
to walk. I rented a golf cart to car-
ry me to my ball.
Josh hits, pretty good shot. I
bust one, a country mile, right
down the middle. I kind'a swell
up and swagger off the tee. Josh's
little girlfriend has got to be im-
pressed with that shot! She
wasn't even looking. She's talking

third pair of those things I've
bought. He wore the other two
out before I got a chance to
put'em on. I thought I told him
not to -
"Dad, if you -can straighten
up, It's your turn."
We're teeing off on four, I
can't get the sweat out of my eyes

While they are waiting for me
to catch up over on seven, Josh
talks her into hitting a shot. It's a
short par three. She's got skinny
legs, weak arms and no swing.

This phenomenon holds true
for beings other than humans,

People's habits start reflect-

out there, in that large world,
there is someone who looks ex-

top and all. He even wore the
same style clothing one usually
sees Ziggs wearing.
THE OTHER DAY, I went in
the Post Office to mail a large en-
velope, which I had to have
weighed before it was mailed.

She laid it up on the post of-:

about be there to appreciate how

meated the actions, words and

wouldn't think they were in the
wrong post office, or if she has
truly been brain-washed by John-

she has taken up their habits and
thinks that all sane people act
like they do.
It made me sort of shudder to
witness the incident and think
that maybe we had a mutant or a
clone of Johnny and Herb run-
ning around in our midst. If we're
not careful, this could begin a
complete new generation of those
two and I don't know if the world
is ready for this or not.

accept Johnny and Herb for what
they are-a couple of crazy nuts-

It Happened In
New York City
"Have you ever been to Chicago?" a friend asked me last Sat-
urday night. "No, I quickly replied, "and I haven't been to New
York City, either. And that's just half of that story: I have no de-
sire to go to either city!"
'You might be surprised about Chicago," he continued.
"There are some real nice people there and, from what we saw,
Chicago is a real clean town." He related an incident that hap-
pened while he and his wife were on a subway. They were on
their way tp see a baseball game and asked a lady which stop
they should get off to get to Wrigley Field. The lady not only told
them which stop they should get off, but also told them which
side of the street they should walk on to get to the ball park safe-
Being told to walk on a certain side of the street seemed a
mite peculiar to me so I asked why he was advised to walk on a
particular side of the street. "I didn't ask," he replied. "We just
walked where she told us to walk."
"Chicago is really a nice city," he went on. "It's a lot different
from New York City. People will help you in Chicago, but they
won't in New York. I know because I've been to both places."
It was ironic, I thought but didn't tell him, but just last week
I read an article in the Panama City News Herald with the head-
ing, TOT RAPED ALONG HIGHWAY WHILE MOTORISTS
WATCHED. The article was from the Associated Press and stated
that although details of the case have not been made public, they
had information that described, in graphic detail, what hap-
pened. Excuse me, what allegedly happened.
According to the article, a tow-truck driver, Noel Sanchez,'
was driving along FDR Drive at 115th Street in Manhattan when
he noticed a traffic backup of about 20 cars. Thinking there
might have been an accident, Mr. Sanchez drove around the mo-
torists to see if he could help. When Mr. Sanchez arrived howev-
er, he was surprised to see a man raping a 3-year-old girl, who
was later identified as the rapist's niece,
The thing that shocked Mr. Sanchez, however, was seeing all
the people who had stopped just sitting there doing nothing Mr.
Sanchez must have been driving through from Mexico because
he didn't hesitate. He jumped a fence dividing the highway from
the alleged rape scene and chased the man about two blocks to a
nearby building where he was arrested a few minutes later by po-
lice. Mr. Sanchez is the only witness to come to police, authori-

in my opinion, and should be put in a place where they can't

But, what about the people who were reported to have been
watching and doing nothing? If the facts in this article are true,
and I believe they are, what were those twenty-odd people think-

Jan McDonald, also a part of the, Port St. Joe office, gave a
report on how the service works along with the Diversified Coop-
erative Training department of the high school in placing pupils
in jobs to receive training in the work world, while they are still
students. 'We have 18 students already lined up for the new
school year, and eight presently working full-time this summer,"
Sheffield was especially high on the agency's role in helping
to discourage drop-outs from high school. She called attention to
several hard-hitting TV spots currently being shown on Channel
7 TV, with prospective employers advising high school graduates
they do not hire workers who do not have a high school diploma.
'This approach is working very well," Sheffield said.
The JTPA executive also took time to praise Gulf County
schools. 'Your school system has a good state-wide reputation
and I want to congratulate you for it," she said. Gulf County has
the lowest drop-out rating of any school system in the state of
in. service with design standards,.' Prescott
The bridge will also be designed for mili-
tary loads due to its location near several mili-
tary establishments along the coast.
In a summary of his report, Prescott said
there are three steps standing in the way of
actual construction work beginning. '"We must
first execute the contracts; then hold pre-
construction conferences; receive delivery of
pre-stressed concrete bridge members, and
then begin work," the DOT official said.
The present Highland View bridge was put
into service in 1939. The new highrise span
will be the third crossing at the Bay outlet for
the Gulf Canal.

Rish said he had asked the

Building inspection fees, in
some instances, are far below the
break even point, according to
Building Inspector Don Butler.
He made the report to the last
meeting of the Commission and
suggested the Board adopt the fee
schedule outlined by the South-
ern Standard Building Code,
whose guidelines the County fol-
lows in their building inspection
Butler told the Board Tues-
day night, the worst abuse of the
schedule fees is on call back in-
spections. "We'll get called out to
make an inspection and when we
get there, the builder isn't ready
for inspection, and so we have to
go back again. This is extremely
costly in time and expenses to
keep making call-backs at no
charge." Butler was recommend-
ing a $25.00 call-back charge, as
outlined in the SBC guidelines.
Most of the proposed rate
changes, other than the call-back
figure, were reflected in services
which now carry a very low rate,
such as the $25.00 minimum fee
to $50.00; inspections for electri-
cal, plumbing and mechanical in-
stallations and changes.
Butler presented his revised,
proposed fee schedule to Board,
which asked attorney Bob Moore
to put the schedule in ordinance
form, so the Board may consider
It at its next meeting.

EiGAP 6A Battl
Hospital/Cout Fund Battle
Franklin County's Emerald
Coast Hospital, a sister hospital
to Port St. Joe's Gulf Pines, and
the Franklin County Commission
are involved in a battle caused by
Emerald Coast's decision to
down-grade ambulance service in
Franklin County to come more
within the funding provided by
Franklin County officials,
naturally, are up in arms about
the hospital management's deci-
sion to down-grade the ambu-
lance service from Advanced Life
Support level to Basic Life Sup-
port. The hospital operates
Franklin County's ambulance
service, just as it does here in
south Gulf County.
Hospital management says
the $60,000 annual contribution
made by the county to pay for the
ambulance service is just not
enough money to pay for provid-
ing .the ALS operation from Alliga-
tor Point to Apalachicola. The
hospital also points out that the
$60,000 is repaid to the County
as their lease for the facility.
The two boards met Monday
afternoon, to air their differences,

Carl B. Davis, 63, of Wewa-

morning, July 17, in Bay Medical
Center following a courageous
struggle with illness. A native of
Coffeeville, Mississippi, he had
lived in Wewahitchka for the past
six years, coming from Gretna,

veteran of World War II.

but after the meeting was over,
the differences were still present.
After the hospital administra-
tor, Paul Fitzgerald filed his claim
that the county was not paying
enough for the level of ambulance
service they were receiving,
Franklin County Clerk, Pal Rivers
contends that the county never
intended to subsidize the ambu-
lance operation. He offered the
opinion that the county had pur-
chased the ambulance vehicles
and that met their responsibility
for the service.
The hospital administrators
also announced they would re-
move the conditional privileges to
admit patients in the hospital
from Dr. Photis Nichols, a veteran
physician in Apalachicola unless
he cooperated with the hospital
operation to a greater degree in
furnishing some emergency room
coverage, peer review coverage,
etc. Nichols had considerable
support present at the meeting
from Apalachicola residents who
felt his 40 years of service to the
community should allow him
The Apalachicola hospital is
owned by Franklin County, but is
leased by Provident Medical Cor-
poration of Orlando.
Bill Simmons, son of Mrs.
William Simmons of Port St. Joe,
is largely credited with the fact
that the City of Pensacola denies
drug offenders residence In public
housing, according to a recent
story in the Pensacola News-
Simmons, an economics and
marketing professor, who teaches
at the University of West Florida
and Pensacola Junior College, re-
cently contacted Pensacola au-
thorities with the concept, which
is being adopted as a deterrent to
the drug trade in northern cities,
as a solution to a growing prob-
lem in Pensacola.
Simmons hatched his idea af-
ter watching a television news
story that showed the same pro-
gram working in a small New
Since Simmons had heard
about shootings, drugs and vio-
lence in Pensacola's housing pro-
jects, he presented the idea to
community authorities as a solu-
tion there. "We seemed to be hav-
ing a problem in Pensacola, and
we didn't seem to be doing any-
thing about it," he said. "I was on
the phone for seven weeks talking
to politicians, lawmakers and
HUD officials about the program."
Pensacola still doesn't deny
drug offenders residency in pub-
lic housing, but as a result of
Simmons prodding, local officials
now want to implement a federal
program that will help accom-
plish the Idea. One of the officials
pushing the idea is Representa-
tive Tom Banjanin, who has been
working with Housing and Urban
Development officials to institute
an anti-drug trafficking program
in Pensacola. It would allow HUD
to cut off funds to public housing
residents involved in drugs.

EARLY TOOTH OVERCROWDING
When should crooked
teeth be straightened? As
soon as they're detected The
old adage about an ounce of
protection is especially true in
orthodontics, where crooked
teeth can be prevented by ear-
Diagnosed at a sufficiently
early age, an unusual trend
can often be stopped in its
tracks and its effects com-
pletely erased. To ensure ear-
ly detection, a child should
have a checkup by the family
dentist at intervals of about six
months, beginning at 2 1/2 to
3 years of age. Overcrowded
and crooked teeth are most
likely to make their entrance

manent incisors and the four
permanent molars at around
Prompt treatment is rec-
ommended when teeth are
overcrowded. Some baby
teeth may be removed ahead
of their normal shedding time
to allow nature to do a certain
amount of tooth straightening.

12 Area Men Arrested for Illegal Fishing Activities
L PAGE 1B
The Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission released the names of 12 men
caught and charged with taking fresh water
fish illegally, Friday of last week.
The Commission officers had been investi-
gating complaints of people taking fish, primar-
ily catfish from an area five to eight miles north
and south of Wewahitchka since the early part
The 12 men arrested included 11 'area men
and one from California, according to Captain
Jim Brantley, regional law enforcement super-
visor for the commission.
The men were using a device made by parts
obtained from an electronics store, which was
about the size of a pack of cigarettes. The de-
vice would be lowered in the water, powered by
a 12-volt battery, stunning the catfish within a
100-foot diameter. The fish would float to the
surface where they were scooped up.
ARRESTS MADE, EQUIPMENT SEIZED
Saturday, June 15, the officers arrested two
Eastpoint men, Carl Wayne Ard, 31 and Sidney
Thomas Moore, 23. Also arrested on the same
day were two Wewahitchka men, James Hardy
Whittington, 22 and Wayne Gray, 34. The four

legal methods and Moore's 13-foot homemade
boat and 40 horsepower motor were seized.
Wednesday, June 26, Emory Maurell Cum-
bie, 63, Port St. Joe; Ernest Junior Ake, 51,
Route 1, Wewahitchka and Robert Mitchell, 29,
Pasadena, California, were arrested and
charged with taking fresh water fish by illegal
methods and Mitchell was also charged for not
having a valid non-resident Florida fishing li-
cense. Officers seized Cumbie's 20-foot pontoon
boat and 40 hp motor, Ake's 14-foot boat and
30 hp motor.
Thursday, June 27, Three Wewahitchka
men were arrested and charged with the illegal
'fishing methods. Judson Eddie Carnley, 48,
Route 1, Wewahitchka; Fario Lee Aman, 44,
Route 1, Wewahitchka and Grover Joseph

Both Carnley and McLemore fled in their vessel
and when apprehended were additionally
charged with fleeing to elude a wildlife officer
and reckless operation of a vessel. They were
booked in the Gulf County Jail and later re-
leased on their own recognizance. Carnley's 15-

Children's Health Forum
All Things in
a Healthy Life
Dr. Elizabeth Jones
One of the most important things parents can give to a child is
an example of a healthy lifestyle. That will usually include modera-
tion in most things with a little abstinence thrown in along the way.
The areas where most problems occur are those of food, drink,
exercise, and ingestion.
Regarding foods, practically, a family can prepare healthful at-
tractive meals with a cheerful and pleasant environment for eating.
It is prudent to make an effort to limit fats and sweets. The frying
pan should no longer be the symbol of Southern cooking. Broil,
boil, or bake instead of fry.
The best way to be sure your children eat good food and not
junk is simply not to buy the Fritoes, potato chips, twinkles and
other empty calories. They will get enough of these things in the
world outside the family. The funds usually spent on such items
are better spent on fruits.
In the drink department, no one can deny the downright good-
ness of a cold glass of sweet tea, but the calories here can be dead-
ly. Try to cultivate a taste for unsweetened tea with lemon juice.
Carbonated drinks should be in moderation. Stress water as cooling
Beer, wine, and whiskey taken occasionally will harm no one,
but the detrimental effects on good health are numerous in those
-who--over-indulge -Obesity, liver disease, drunkenness, hyperten-
sion, kidney failure are all manifested in the alcoholic and are the
opposite of the healthy lifestyle one would like to achieve.
Children used to go outside to play. Now they watch television.
Television is a wonderful entertainment, but children should be lim-
ited in the time they are allowed to sit around. Take the T.V. sched-
ule each week and let eachch ild pick out the program he wants to
see each day. Do not use the television as a babysitter.
Exercise is important to develop lungs, muscles, and bones.
Cultivate an exercise all the family can enjoy. Walking, bicycle rid-
ing, and swimming are a few examples.
It is a sad commentary in our present society for the greatest
health problem in the country to be obesity. This has developed as
the country has become rich. Food is plentiful and too readily avail-
able. We continue to develop labor saving devices and toys. I recent-
ly saw a three-year-old on a battery operated toy tractor. This toy is
a novel enjoyable toy, but the child should be pedaling a tricycle or
Ingestions in one form or another such as tobacco, marijuana,
cocaine and heroin are all extremely harmful to the body. More and
more is being written about the harmful effects in children of pas-
sive smoke. Children, who do not smoke but live with people who
do smoke, have many more respiratory problems and ear infections
as a result of their environmental contaminations.
Many parents find ithelpful to play a '"What If' with their chil-
dren when they are trying to get across the concept of no tobacco,
no alcohol, and no drugs. What if your friend offered you some
beer, wine, or whiskey? What if your friend offered you some drugs?
Ask the questions and get your children to respond. If the response
is good, compliment the child. If the response is uncertain and
weak suggest a better response. Once a child has been able to re-
spond, the practice of doing so is very helpful when the real situa-
Growing children need unscheduled time to read, play, day-
dream, etc. It is not healthful if a child is so hurried from one thing
to another he has no time to assimilate what he has learned that
day. A healthy balance in parents will present the proper role model
for the child. There are always exceptions, but generally a child will
imitate and adapt to the lifestyle of the parents. Work hard to make
your lifestyle a worthwhile style to imitate.
Summer Heat Helps
Death Trap In Car
Special to the Star
By P.J. Jones-Trowell
It is against the law in the
State of Florida to leave an ani-
mal in a car or truck cab or any-
thing where the animal may be
subjected to heat related acci-
A police officer has the au-
thority to do whatever is neces-
sary to try and rescue the animal
in distress. This means prying
the door open or breaking a win-
dow whatever it takes. Chief
Richter was asked how the police
department in Port St. Joe would
handle such an incident. He stat-
ed, "First we would try to find the
animal's owner but if we couldn't,
we would do whatever was neces-
It is a cruel and gruesome
death and it happens more than
you would care to know. It begins
quite innocently...people put their
pets in the car and head to the
store for a loaf of bread or what-
ever. They are sure they'll only be
in the nice air conditioned store
for just a minute...so they leave a
little crack in the window for their
pet to breathe... they run into
someone they know and start
talking or the line is longer than
it usually is...but they think the
pet will be fin for just a few more
minutes... This is where the hor-
ror story begins. On an average
sunny day, the temperature in-
side a car can quickly reach 160
degrees! The average temperature
for a dog is 101.5 to 102.2 de-
grees. Even at 106 degrees, your
pet will suffer a possible heat
stroke or even worse, death. Be-
cause dogs and cats can't sweat
to cool off as humans can, they
must pant. When they are breath-
ing in nothing but hot air, they
are actually cooking their insides.
Not a very pleasant thought.
The next time you think you
might want to take ol "Killer" or
"Cuddles" for a ride, why not go
and sit out in your car yourself
with the windows "cracked" for
say 10 minutes...while the sun is
broiling down on the roof and the
heat from the asphalt is cooking
the bottom of the vehicle. Oh yes,
you'll be sweating and uncomfort-
able, but at least you can sweat -
not to mention get out of the car
and into the air conditioning.
Your pet doesn't have any of
these options. It will suffer need-
lessly and maybe even die. You
will never forgive yourself.
In this hot climate you must
take every precaution to keep
your pets safe from heat related
accidents. Remember, the kindest
and most humane thing you can
do for your little four-footed
friend is just leave him or her at
home where there is plenty of
shade and fresh water.
If you see an animal in dis-
tress: 1) call the police; 2) try to
find the owner; 3) when you can
get to the animal, immerse it in
cool water while supporting the
head. This will hopefully lower
the body temperature; 4) get the
animal to a veterinarian without

.25 Million In Grants Spurs County's
Solid Waste Recycling Program
Oil, Tires, Glass, Wood, Plastics, Paper, Are Targets
Over the past several months
the "Recycle Gulf' office has
received numerous calls concern-
ing the status of the County's
recycling program. The following
is an update of thp program,
grant status and future plans.
The County has applied for
and received over $250,000 in
grant funds over the past couple
of years. Below is a list of grants
and expenditures for each. Also,
included are future plans for each
(A) SMALL COUNTY SOLID
WASTE GRANT $25,000 ANNU-
The state mandated that the
counties purchase scales for each
solid waste facility before spend-
ing these funds on anything else.
To date the County has received
three allocations and have pur-
chased scales for Five Points
Landfill, Industrial Road Transfer
Station and Wetappo Recycling/
Transfer Station. We have recent-
ly applied for this year's funds
and are expecting a $25,000 allo-
cation by October 1991. These
funds will be used to purchase
computer hardware and software
for all three scale sites. We also
plan to contract the installation
of the scales for the Industrial
(B) USED OIL GRANT
Funds have only been appro-
priated one time for this grant.
The State mandates that the
counties purchase signs and
erect on or near the County lines.
The remaining money was used
to purchase oil collection contain-
ers and construct collection sta-
tions. Several of the containers
were placed at local industries,
municipalities and school bus
barns. The public collection sta-
tions were constructed at the
Industrial Road Transfer Station
and the Wetappo Recycling Cen-
ter. (These are open to the public
during normal operating hours.)
(C) TIRE GRANT $6.000 -
These grant funds have been
earmarked for recycling of tires or
to have tires removed from the
County. Past money has been
tised to pay the cost of having the
tires incinerated at the Bay
County Waste Recovery Plant. A
small portion of the funds were
used to build a machine that sep-
arates rims from the tires. Future
funds will either pay for the
removal of tires from the County,
purchase a tire shredder or pay
to have tires shredded.
(D) RECYCLING AND EDU-
CATION GRANT $65,000 -
The State mandated that
these funds be used for two spe-
cific purposes: implement a recy-
cling program and a public
awareness or education program.
To date these funds have been
used for the following:
1) Construct the Wetappo
2) Purchase the recycling
#) Purchase collection con-
4) Construct the recycling
building (6,000 sq. ft. pre-
engineered metal building)
5) Fund the education pro-
6) Conduct a waste composi-
7) Purchase a knuckle boom
Future plans for these funds
will include completing the recy-
cling building, purchase a wood
chipper, glass crusher and bailer.
Funds will also be set aside to
continue the public awareness
In summary, the following is
the overall recycling plan for Gulf
County. By the end of next fiscal
year (September 1991), the

cial projects department, oversees a sam- the county will target for a recycling pro-
pling of solid waste at a County waste col- gram. The testing was done late in 1990.
County should have all the infra-
structure in place and all equip-
ment purchased to implement the
recycling program. The County
will continue to have drop off sta-
tions at Wewahitchka, Port St.
Joe, Overstreet, Highland View
and White City plus add stations
at Cape San Blas, St. Joe Beach
and Howard Creek. These sta-
tions will have facilities for the
collection of clear glass, brown
glass, green glass, aluminum,
plastics and newspaper. (Newspa-
per Igloos will be set out upon
completion of the recycling build-
ing September 1991.) Upon
completion of the recycling build-
ing and the purchase of the bailer
and glass crusher, the County
will begin purchasing recyclables
at this facility. The building will
also serve as a storage facility
and transfer station for all recy-
clables. The only other program
that is scheduled for implementa-
tion is a mulching program at the
Five Points Class III Landfill. This
will entail purchasing a chipper
and providing mulch to the gener-
al public or to private Industry. In
the near future, recycling tips will
be published in the local papers.
Also, the public will be updated
on the construction of the recy-
cling building and equipment
The County appreciates eve-
ryone's participation and interest
in this endeavor. Only with the
support of the citizens will this
program be a success.

'The accomplishment of our:
combined efforts over the past 34
months will change forever the
character of Gulf Coast Commu-

of the Gulf Coast Community Col-

*Vapor lock is a warm weather
problem. When excess heat
causes gasoline to vaporize pre-
maturely, gas vapor and air fill
the fuel lines instead of gasp-
line. Result: the engine 'hesi-
tates, then surges, then stalls.
The only cure is to let the en-
gine cool down.
*They just don't make converti-
bles the way they used to. Ex-
cept for two models, most con-
vertibles sold in the U.S. start
out as coupes with the tops cut
off. One plus: the chassis must
be reinforced, often creating a
stronger car than the original.
*New kind of insurance closes
the gap between the market val-
ue of your car what you'd get
if it was totaled and the
amount you may still owe on
your loan or lease. Otherwise,
you'd have to make up the dif-
ference out of pocket.
*Save fuel by driving at a con-
stant speed. Continually slow-
ing down and speeding up
wastes gasoline. Take advan-
tages of cruise control if your
car has it.

Outside North America, pea-
nuts are used mostly for oil, not
for food, which is a shame. Pea-
nuts contain 26 percent protein,
higher than eggs, dairy products
and many cuts of meat and fish.
Two peanut butter sandwiches
and a cup of milk fill 83 percent
of growing children's daily need
for protein and give them the
abundant energy they need.
The human body is built on
proteins, and yet we cannot store
proteins. Rapidly growing chil-
dren need a daily supply to form
bones and tissue; adults need
protein daily to replace worn-out
body cells; and, as we grow older
and begin to eat less, we especial-
ly need a diet high in protein.
That's why peanuts are so valua-
ble to us.

pounds of steak, four quarts of
milk or 32 eggs. Peanuts contain
many of the essential B vitamins
(Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin), pol-
yunsaturated fats, no choleste-
rol, and a balanced share of calo-
ries. Calories balanced with
proteins are essential to your
health. This balance of calories
and proteins creates quick energy
and builds muscle. Appreciable
amounts of calcium, phosphorus,
potassium, iron, magnesium and
important trace elements round
out the nutrition of peanuts.
When you team the protein
from one plant (as in peanut but-
ter) with the protein from another
plant (bread), you multiply the ef-
fectiveness of their protein power.
Nutritionally, a peanut butter
sandwich and a glass of milk are
a perfect pair. Add an orange and
you get a nutritionally balanced
meal. Perhaps this is why Ameri-
cans eat nearly nine pounds of
peanuts each year.

The use of easily remembered
names greatly reduces confusion
when two or more tropical storms
occur at the same time. For ex-
ample, one hurricane can be
moving slowly westward in the
Gulf of Mexico, while at exactly
the same time another hurricane
can be moving rapidly northward
along the Atlantic coast. In the
past, confusion and false rumors
have arisen when storm adviso-
ries broadcast from one radio sta-
tion were mistaken for warnings
concerning an entirely different
storm located hundreds of miles
History of Hurricane Names
For several hundred years
many hurricanes in the West In-
dies were named after the partic-
ular saint's day on which the hur-
ricane occurred. Ivan R. Tannehill
describes in his book "Hurri-
canes" the major tropical storms
of recorded history and mentions
many hurricanes named after
saints. For example, there was
"Hurricane Santa Ana" which
struck Puerto Rico with excep-
tional violence on July 26, 1825,
and "San Felipe" (the first) and
"San Felipe" (the second) which
hit Puerto Rico on September 13
in both 1876 and 1928.
Tannehill also tells of Clem-
ent Wragge, an Australian mete-
orologist who began giving wom-
en's .names to tropical storms
before the end of the 19th centu-
An early example of the use of
a woman's name for a storm was
in the novel "Storm" by George R.
Stewart, published by Random
House in 1941, and since filmed
by Walt Disney. During World
War II this practice became wide-
spread in weather map discus-
sions among forecasters, especial-
ly Air Force and Navy
meteorologists who plotted the
movements of storms over the
wide expanses of the Pacific
In 1953, the Unite States
abandoned a confusing two-year
old plan to name storms by a
phonetic alphabet (Able, Baker,
Charlie) when a new, internation-
al phonetic alphabet was intro-
duced. That year, this Nation's
weather services began using fe-
male names for storms.
The practice of naming hurri-
canes after women came to an
end in 1978 when men's and
women's names were included in
the Eastern North Pacific storm
lists. In 1979, male and female
names were included in lists for
the Atlantic and Gulf of Mexico.
