FIFTY-THIRD YEAR, NUMBER 49
Edward Benjamin Mobley, 67,' of Lake
Wales, had just retired a few days prior to last
Saturday and purchased a new boat two days
before, intent on getting right down to the busi-
ness of enjoying a long retirement, playing and
His retirement, playing and traveling came
to an abrupt end Saturday at about 12:30,
when a bolt of lightning ripped out of the
clouds of a heavy thunderstorm on St. Joseph
* Bay and struck Mobley, killing him instantly.
The fatal lightning bolt was accompanied by
many other jolts and rolling thunder in a driv-
ing rain storm which rolled in at about noon.
Mobley's wife, Daisy, 68, was knocked un-
conscious by the same bolt. The two were scal-
loping in the Bay and were about 1500 feet

proximately 45 minutes, according to Gulf
County Sheriffs Deputy, Tom Godwin, who in-
vestigated the incident, along with Deputy Mal-
colm Garrett. As she began to regain con-
sciousness, Robert Myers of Burgess Creek,
came by the boat and saw Mrs. Mobley feebly
trying to wave him down. Myers came along

after the lightning hit him with the fatal strike
and a search was started for his body. The
search was joined by Florida Marine Patrol offi-

About two hours after the strike, Mobley's
body was spotted floating in the bay about
1,500 feet from the dock where the boat was
tied and recovered.
Mrs. Mobley was hospitalized in Gulf Pines
Hospital until Monday, when she was released.
Mobley's body was transferred to the Medical
Examiner's office to determine the actual cause
of death. He had two bums on his body-one
on his head and the other on his right foot,

A Hop Up
Diminished Sources of Receipts
Causes Small Increase in Tax Rate
Rather than taking a 'jump", a "leap", a
"surge", or even a "hike", Gulf County's new
tentatively approved budget will take what can
be more properly described as "a small hop" in
the upward direction, with a corresponding
skip in the tax rate.
With a determined goal of cutting five per-
cent from the operating budget, the Commis-
sion has been at work for over a month trying
to pare some $1.2 million from original budget
requests for the new year.
Wednesday, at noon, the Commission
brought all that work to a tentative close, when
they. finally.put their stamp: of approval on a fi-
nance plan which will need some $630,000 in
new dollars to finance, but see only $240,000
in new expenditures. This situation is brought
about by the fact that the county sees a short-
fall of some $390,000 in revenue sources over
last year. According to Clerk, Benny Lister, this
shortfall is due to less cash forward and less
State and Federal funds being anticipated than
In addition to the $390,000 reduction in
revenue sources, the final tentative budget is
$240,000 larger than last year.
Seven budget items use up most of the es-
pected increase, as well as claim some funds
which had been cut from other budgets.
The largest increase went to the Mosquito
Control Department. This county agency is in
charge of the solid waste disposal program,
which is the main culprit in gobbling up some
$109,182 additional dollars. And, even this
might not be enough before the year is over, if
past experience is any indication.
Other substantial but lesser increases will
be seen in:
-An additional $11,923 for the Veterans
Service office, to fund a full-time director for
-$23,282 more for the Sheriffs Depart-
ment and an additional $15,079 for the deten-
tion service, to provide another Deputy and
care for more prisoners.
-A loan of $7,200 for the Overstreet Fire
Department to enlarge their fire house, was
also tentatively funded.
-The Port St. Joe Library building will re-
ceive new funds of $16,704, for a new roof.
-The Road Department will have its budget
increased by $28,468, to pay a lease purchase

Keep Your Cool \Hunker Down with Kes
"r 1_ a then.
At this time every year, we all get antsy and we moan and
groan about taxes and how hard they are to pay. We suppose
you could place us right there near the head of the list of those
who moan and groan, right along with the best moaners and
Maybe that's the proper thing to do. None of us want our
hard-earned money wasted or frittered: away for nonsensical
purposes. It [money] comes too hard to have it wasted by a
bunch of bunglers who don't know how to wring a dollar bill un-
til George Washington thinks he is getting strung up.
Too, there's nothing particularly funny or noble-feeling about
having to pay out huge chunks of money when the tax bill
comes. There's no kidding around about it. Paying taxes is not
fun and spiraling tax bills stir up the objections in all of us.
When we have four governments here in Gulf County build-
ing budgets at the same time, it seems as if the tax levies are
sometimes more than we can possibly bear. They are tough, but
from what we hear, they are larger in many other places than
they are in Gulf County. In Gulf County, the tax bite isn't all
that large, which is why we used so many paragraphs to explain
that if they were only $10.00 for each tax payer, we would still
moan about high taxes.
Taxes don't disturb us. Having to pay them does. It's that
The things which gives us some relief here in Gulf County is
something I heard on the TV news the other night. The commen-
tator said that more and more governmental subdivisions--
which includes states, counties, cities, school districts, etc.,-
are going or are already bankrupt. As a matter of fact, the com-
mentator said that many economists feel that only 10% of the
states, cities, etc., are not in danger of going bankrupt or are al-
That puts Gulf County, the Gulf County School Board and
the two cities in Gulf County in pretty select company, because
neither are near bankruptcy. In spite of our grumblings over
having to pay taxes, and complaining over the services we may
not have, that others do have, our taxing bodies are, intentional-
ly or accidentally, treating us as citizens pretty well.
So, if you want to keep your cool and your sanity during this
traumatic tax levying season, just look at the bright side. We
may be paying more than we want, but at least our governments
have not put us in the poor house. yet!
Have you noticed where the summer has gone? We know, it's
just the first day of August and there is plenty of hot weather
ahead for us here in the Panhandle of the Sunshine State. But,
just consider, if you will, that in a short two weeks from today,
the kids will be back in school here in Gulf County for the fall
That means summer-or more properly, summer vacation-
is just about over.
Sumilker vacation has hit hard this',year, also. The people at
%the beach liked it, because it attracted people by the thousands
who wanted to trade a number of their greenbacks for a red or
brown sunburn. Where it hit hard, was in the frenzy of travelling
our people engaged in, trying to get their summer vacation in be-
fore school started again.
Churches have their attendance decimated at this time of the
year. Social, fraternal and civic organizations have problems get-
ting people to their meetings. Even industry works those who
stay, overtime, to make up for the ones who are off on vacation.
But, it will all soon be over and it will be back to the same
old day-to-day schedule before you can say, "Where did the sum-
But there is one bright ray of expectation coming out of all
this. There is light at the end of the summer tunnel which is
rapidly approaching. The end of summer is not all desolation
and disappointment for all but those who exist on summer
The end of July and jumping off into August, as we are doing
today, means that in just a few days more than a month, we will
be going to football games again. Some will start before Septem-
ber 1, but for those high school games which are so much a fa-
vorite in Florida's Panhandle, the first week end in September is
the magic word.
So, take heart, people! The pigskin is coming!

The young waitress poured our
tea and filled us in on the latest
"I know," my companion
looked up from his taco salad, "I
was checking out over at the Pig-
gly Wiggly yesterday and his pic-
ture was on one of those maga-
zines. Headlines said he was
spotted at the drive-in out in Ari-
I saw that magazine. He
shared the cover with Dolly Par-
ton. The caption under her photo
said that she actually hadn't lost
any weight at all they were
making her look skinny by using
trick photography. Of course, the
thing that really caught my eye
on that cover was the picture of
the three-headed cow.
"Isn't it great about Elvis?"
The young waitress was announc-
ing the news at the next table.
"I wish," my wife paused be-
tween mouthfuls of her spaghetti,
double order of fries and large
salad, "they would use some of
that trick photography on me!"
Elvis came to my little home-
town once. I know he was alive
It was 1957 and Elvis
stopped off at the Dixie Coffee
Cup for supper. It took about 15
minutes for everybody in town to
get out there. Everyone, that is,
except Bobby Ridley, he was on
duty at the fire station. Elvis sat
in Maudie Mallard's mother's sec-
tion but Dixie Faye, whose father
owned the place, bumped her and
waited on him.
Somebody threw a nickel in
the juke box and played, You Ain't
Nothing' But A Hound Dog.
Elvis ordered a bowl of chili
and seemed kind'a amused at the
swiftness with which the restau-
rant was filling up. Bubba and
Earl were the last to come in.
They'd parked their Harley's just
as close to that Cadillac as they
could and they'd spent 10 min-
utes out in the parking lot waxing
on their black leather ackets and
combing their ducktalls.
Somebody pushed B-11 and
Don't Be Cruel came on.
I didn't know any of the peo-
ple with Elvis. But one of them
must'a been in the military -
they kept calling him Colonel.
Dixie Faye was so excited that
she near 'bout spilled the chili in
his lap. And sle accidently
brushed his shoulder as she
leaned down with the bowl. Elvis
smiled and said, 'Thank you,
Folks, Dixie Faye swooned.
The Rock-Ola was playing All
It seems a little odd now. But
nobody rushed over and intro-
duced themselves or asked for an
autograph. They didn't interrupt
his meal or get in the way. Every-
body just stood around the Dixie
Coffee Cup, talking real low and
watching Elvis eat a bowl of chili.
When Elvis stood up to leave,
I Want You, I Need You, I Love You
was blaring out of that juke box.
Patti Houston rushed up to him
and gave him a big kiss. But
heck, didn't nobody think much
about that Patti, at one time or
another, had kissed every eligible
man in the county. As that pink
Cadillac roared off into the night,
people inside were lining up to sit
in Elvis' chair and everybody
was ordering chili.
"Kes, do you truly think Elvis
is alive?" Our waitress was back
with more tea.
'Yes, I do. Just like I know
that wrestling is real and we ain't
never been to the moon."
'You mean wrestling is real!"
Before I could tell her about
the time up in Hibbing, Minneso-
ta, when Sasquatch almost got
me, Cathy raised up from her pe-
can pie and gave me 'one of those
looks'. I knew the conversation
I probably wouldn't a'thought
nothing else about it As a matter
of fact, I wouldn't even be telling
you this story today if it hadn't
a'been for the car.
I was on a back road about
halfway between Marianna and
Blakely when I came up behind a
1955 Ford. Folks, this one was
extra sharp. It was a red and
white Crown Victoria with fender
skirts, chrome wire wheels, a con-
tinental kit and a lowered rear
end. I'm talking showroom ready.
I floor boarded my old pick-up -
I had to get a better look at this.
As I pulled out to pass, the sun
reflecting off that chrome bumper
almost blinded me. The driver
had long black hair and he was
wearing wrap around sunglasses.

Some People Really Know How to Ruin A Good Vacation
EVERYBODY KNOWS Bill
Wood. That's Bill Wood of City
Commission fame. He ran for the
job last year and earned his first
term on the Commission Board
and has now been there long
enough to have stopped asking
himself, "What am I doing here?"
If you have never been there,
you hardly know what I am talk-
ing about. I didn't make this ob-
servation in order to discourage
anyone from running for the City
Commission post. It's not all fun
and games, but it is a very satis-
fying service for one's community,
as I am sure Bill is beginning to
find out right about now.
The job is more satisfying in
Port St. Joe than it is in most
small cities, because Port St. Joe
has enjoyed some conservative
and effective leadership out of its
$25.00 per month commissioners
over the past years, and the City
is In a position to do what It
needs to do for its people without
having to scratch and scramble
for the money to do it with.
Port St. Joe .is a solvent city,
due to its fine leadership, while
other cities are going bankrupt

ing golf, he is out running, trying

raising tales about some of the_
property he has covered under
his firm. Some are funny, some

ble. And, of course, Bill comes
from Alabama, so he has the gift
of telling tales to make them
sound more interesting like
my preacher, Dr. Dan Duncan,
Bill Barlow, Lamar Faison, Frank
Pate, Smiley Anchors, Doctors

and the list goes on and on, as do

But, it just wasn't to bel
Awhile back, one of the ma-
jor movie studios made a movie
entitled, "National Lampoon's Va-
cation," starring Chevy Chase, so
you know just about what kind of
movie it was. Everything which
can go wrong on a vacation, went
wrong in the movie.
Well. II Chevy Chase hadn't
made that movie a few years
back, Rocky might be able to sell
the screen rights to his vacation
in San Antonio, Texas, and in so
doing, might recover some of the
loss he sustained, making the sit-
uation more humorous than it ac-
tually turned out to be.
Rocky and Jan HAD one of
those pregnant vans you
know, the ones with the bubble
on top. The van couldn't be
parked in the hotel garage be-
cause of the high-rise top, so it
was left in a parking lot outside.
The very first night in San
Antonio, somebody decided they
liked old Rocky's van and took off
in it. The next day the van was
found stripped and burned.
The movie, "Vacation," was a
riot, but Rocky isn't laughing
about his misadventures, yett
I KNOW IT'S HARD to see
how, but Bill Wood does really fit
into this narrative.
You see. Rocky was sitting
across from Bill and next to me at
Rotary Club July 18, and he was
leaving for San Antonio immedi-
ately after the meeting was over.
'"We're driving to Baton Rouge to-
night, and on into San Antonio

he is, remarked, "Be careful
Rocky, I have had bad experience
with cars insured by my agency

Rocky quipped, "Well, I don't

The kicker is, that. for the
past four years, cars insured by
Bill's firm have taken vacations to
San Antonio, only to have them
demolished or damaged by van-
dals. Rocky was the fourth

The Honeymoon Is Over
There comes a time in almost every marriage when the ro-
mantic infatuation is gone and the two persons are faced with
The reality is that they realize that the person they married is
not the person they now live with. At least they don't appear to
be the same person.
This awakening Is called the "Honeymoon's Over" syndrome
and there are scores of ways it manifests itself. Most of the time
It is not an overnight, traumatic event. It's little, quiet, subtle
things that creep in like a snake into a night camp. It's the little
thoughts and events that eventually make both parties know the
honeymoon is definitely over.
Since it takes two to tango and make marriage, and, since it's
still fashionable in Wewahitchka to say, "Ladies first," I would
like to discuss the ladies' point of view this week and try to catch
the men's side next week.
Ladies, recently married and unmarried, pay attention! The
honeymoon Is over when:
*Your husband has been on a weekend hunting trip and the
odor you smell is not "manly" but plain old b.o. and you tell him
*When your fear of becoming pregnant again is greater than
your desire for sex.
*When you catch your husband using your toothbrush and
you throw it away after he goes to work.
*When .what you once called "a little overweight" on hubby is
replaced by "fat, bald and uglyl"
*When your husband stays out all night and you don't care
where he was.
*When your sexy neighbor makes a pass at your husband
and you get mad but you don't know why.
*When you go to a movie and your husband wants some of
your popcorn but you make him go buy his own, although he
bought yours for you.
*When you wake up in the morning and look at him and he
looks so bad that you cover his face with a pillow and hope he
dreams it's a giant marshmallow and tries to eat it.
*When you finally agree with your mother that he really is a
"no good, cheating, lying scoundrel."
*Finally, the honeymoon is definitely over when you get into a
fight and he threatens to leave and you have already packed his
bags and put them in the oldest car.
No one said it was going to be easy. Remember, you can't
make a rose garden out of a briar patch!

Army Reserve Gives Thanks
To the Editor:
Operation Desert Storm will
probably go down in history as
one of our most successful mili-
tary efforts ever. That was due in
large part to the participation of
the U.S. Army Reserve.
Beginning in August 1990,
thousands of Army Reservists
were called upon to perform the
missions for which they had been
trained. By now the whole coun-
try is aware of the tremendous
contributions they made to the
United States' Operation Desert
Their success was, in turn,
made possible by the generous
support of the American people.
First, and perhaps most impor-
tant, was the wide-ranging sup-
port by the communities, of the
Army Reservists who were acti-
vated. Local communities were
particularly supportive of home-
town units as they deployed.
Without that, the activation
would have been much harder to
accomplish. But our Army Re-
servists went with the blessings
and good wishes of the American
people. We all realize just how im-
portant that is.
Without a doubt, one of the
most significant factors in inform-
ing the public was the new media
coverage of reserve activations.
Overall, both the print and the
electronic media presented a fair
picture of the Issues and activi-
ties surrounding the mobilization.
As a result, the public saw how
well prepared Army Reservists
were and learned how important
they were to the total Army effort.
The understanding that our
Army Reservists have received
from their employers has been
most encouraging. No one likes to
lose a valuable employee sudden-
ly for an extended and indefinite
period of time, especially in times
of economic uncertainty, but the
response of the great majority of
employers,.has been yery positive.
And many companies went be-
yond the requirements of the law
and generously extended addi-
tional benefits to their Reservists.
As a result, Army Reservists were
able to deploy without worrying
about their job security. Now, as
they are returning, we are seeing
that support continue as employ-
ers are welcoming them back into
the work force.
And finally, the families of our
reservists deserve special recogni-
tion. They bore the emotional, fi-
nancial and physical burdens of
their soldiers' absence. They sup-
ported their soldiers and that,
made a real difference.,
Once again, Army Reservists
have shown themselves to be ded-

caused by the strikes," Florida
Marine Patrol Major Bob Douglas
said early this week, in the after-
math of the fatality from a strike
in St. Joseph Bay. Douglas, Dis-
trict Commander of the FMP, said
approximately 70% of the strikes
and fatalities occur on or around
Offering some suggestions to
avoid injury from the frequent
.summer lightning storms, Major
Douglas offered the following
three suggestions to boaters or
those near the water when such a
storm comes up.
1.] One should avoid the "an-
vil" or lead shadow of an oncom-
ing storm. The northeast quad-
rant of the storm is the most
dangerous. Boaters should try to
maneuver around that part of a
storm, if they should find them-
selves trapped on the water when
one starts. The "anvil" of a ma-
ture thunderstorm points the di-
reaction the storm is traveling.
Lightning can strike two to three
miles ahead of a storm.
2.1 Swimmers should leave
the waters and seek shelter the
moment any lightning is seen, re-
alizing that thunder is often not
heard until an oncoming storm is
close, because of wind being
drawn into the storm as it ap-
proaches, drowning out the
sounds of the approaching dan-
3.] Boats attract lightning like
a magnet. If you're in a boat, seek
shelter from the storm. If you
can't, wear rain gear with rubber
sole shoes. Remove jewelry. Stay
clear of engine and helm of the
boat. Take down antennas and
rods and stay low in the boat.
Safety starts before you leave
the dock. Leave float plans, when
you do depart the dock.
Major Douglas said almost all
lightning strikes can be prevented
if boaters follow these precau-

NEW BUDGET TOTALS
The new budget totals by departments,
show the General Fund, which finances most
county operations, including the Mosquito Con-
trol department, at $4,142,974. Last year, the
General Fund budget was $3,956,534.
Fine and Forfeiture, which includes the
Sheriffs Department, Jail, and a portion of the
County Judge's office, $1,028,916. Last year,
this budget was $996,202.
The Road and Bridge Department shows a
total of $731,793. Last year, the Road and
rI L l aanJ3
Bridge was $729,211.
The total proposed budget tentatively ap-
proved yesterday was $5,903,683. Last year's
grand total stood at $5,641,947. The totals
show an increase of $261,736.
Taxes are expected to be increased by .969
of a mill, to a 9.416 total-dangerously close to
the state mandated 10 mill cap. The tentative
budget figures will now be placed on the trim
notice, which is mailed out each year to every
tax payer. The tentative budget may be reduced
without going through all the hearing proce-
dures, but it may not be increased.

Gulf County residents who
produce various forms of art work
will have an opportunity to show
them to the public at the first an-
nual St. Joseph Bay Arts Exhibit.
The exhibits purpose, according
to organizers is to (display and)
promote regional artists with a
single event where art work of all
kinds can be displayed to the
public in one place.
The week long exhibit will be
held in conjunction with the sec-
ond annual St. Joseph's Bay Arts
and Crafts Festival on October
5th and 6th. Organizers of the art
exhibit hope to capitalize on the
success of last year's festival
which brought many talented art-
ists, craftsmen and visitors to
Port St. Joe.

Soon school will begin again, and all school children are re-
quired to have the following immunizations: DPT 5 Doses; Polio 4
Doses; MMR 1 Dose.
When your child receives a DPT shot, he is being immunized
against diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough) and tetanus (lock-
jaw). Now days most children have their immunizations, but often
parents will have no concept of the disease for which their child has
Diphtheria is an infectious disease which causes the formation
of a membrane usually in the throat. The membrane grows and
increases in size. Patients die from not being able to breathe. As a
student I had an elderly patient who told me he and his wife had 13
children. Six of the children died in one night from diphtheria. Such
a thing is almost inconceivable for us today.
Older people will remember having whooping cough. This dis-
ease was no fun for an older child as the child would cough spas-
modically for six to eight weeks and follow the cough by vomiting
(the whoop). Where whooping cough was unpleasant for an older
child it became life threatening in a young baby. The baby would
gag and strangle on thick mucus and could die.
Tetanus is manifest with muscle twitches, tremors, spasms.
The muscles of the jaw become so tight the mouth could not be
opened (lockjaw) and the patient would starve to death or aspirate
secretions and die.
Polio is a viral illness that causes paralysis of various muscles -
- more commonly muscles in the legs. Some patients had arm and
chest muscle paralysis and these were the patients who needed to
live in the "iron lung."
Measles is a severe viral disease that can cause blindness, deaf-
ness, and brain damage. Recently there has been a rash of measles
cases in college age people that included several deaths. Because of
this increased number of cases in the young adult group, it is now
recommended for children to have a second dose of MMR about age
Mumps causes swelling of the parotid gland (in front of the ear
and on the face). The disease itself was not too troublesome, but
complications can develop. Complications include Orchitis (inflam-
mation of the testes) and Encephalitis (inflammation of the brain).
Rubella (German Measles) is a mild disease in children and
only becomes important when contracted by a woman in the first
trimester of pregnancy. When a woman in the first trimester of
pregnancy has Rubella, the baby is usually born with severe prob-
lems. "Rubella babies" have microcephaly (extremely small head),
blindness and deafness.
Recently there has been an addition to the recommended (but
not required for school) immunizations list. This addition is the HIB
Vaccine. Current recommendations are to have babies get a series
of three injections at two, four and six months with a booster at 15
HIB vaccine is designed to protect the young child against He-
mophilus Influenza Type B disease. This disease does not occur too
frequently, but when it does occur it Is a serious disease and often
leaves a child with serious brain damage.
People traveling outside the Continental United States will often
need special immunizations. The Public Health Service recommends
typhoid immunizations for all international travelers. Yellow fever,
Cholera, and Hepatitis may be recommended or required depending
on the traveler's destination.
Not currently available, but standing in the wings being stud-
ied, is chickenpox vaccine. Another year or two should see this vac-
cine added to the list of vaccines recommended for children, and
see chickenpox as another disease prevented through immuniza-
tions. ""* .-- ,. -

"Most of our patients are Medi-

substantial number of patients
insured by private carriers, or
who pay from their own funds,"
The agency provides services
such as administering medica-

changing dressings, and any care
offered by nurses in a hospital
setting. "The patients feel more
secure and at ease in the home
setting, and we offer services to
make that recovery complete and
trouble free," the speaker said.
Holton said one of their main
specialties is offering physical
therapy care for those who have
had joint replacement. "There are
a number of people receiving hip
and knee replacements, who need
physical therapy to train their
muscles to handle the new re-

New regulations make sub-
stantial changes in the way the
Social Security Administration
evaluates disabilities in children
applying for Supplemental Secur-
ity Income (SSI) payments. One of
the regulations, which is the
result of the February 20, 1990
Sullivan v. Zeblev Supreme Court
decision, significantly changes
the process and standards used
to evaluate childhood chases.
Two other regulations make spe.
cific revisions to the medical cri-
teria used to evaluate disability in.
children with Down Syndrome,
mental impairments and other
serious hereditary, congenital
and acquired disorders.
In the Zebley decision, the
Supreme Court found that Social
Security.used a narrower test for
evaluating the disabilities of chil-
dren under 18 than it used for
evaluating the disabilities of adult
workers. The determination of
disability for children was based
solely on evaluation criteria con-
tained in Social Security's "List-
ing of Impairmentts." llowever,
when evaluating adults, Social
Security provided additional steps
which considered an individual's
work-related functional capacities
and vocation factors such as age,
education and work experience.
The new childhood regulation
outlines a disability evaluation
process for children that is simi-
lar to the process used for adults.
It expands the method of deter-
mining equivalence to the medical
listings criteria and allows a
determination of disability based
on the child's ability to function.
A child whose disability does not
meet or equal specific "listings"
will be given an individualized
functional assessment to deter-
mine how the disability limits the
child. All the child's functions
and behaviors will be examined
and evaluated, including cogni-
tive, communicative, motor,
social and personal skills.
Since children's functioning
varies enormously from age to
age, the new regulation reflects

In response to acute and
growing public concern about fin-
fish by-catch, a Steering Commit-
tee hosted by the Gulf and South
Atlantic Fisheries Development
Foundation, Inc. met to com-
mence developing a research plan
for the finfish by-catch in the
Gulf of Mexico and South Atlantic
Shrimp Fisheries. This research
plan will be designed to address
gear modification and other man-
agement strategies to reduce fin-
fish by-catch in the shrimp in-
dustry. The Steering Committee
is composed of representatives
from the Gulf and South Atlantic
Commercial Fishing Industry,
Recreational Fishing Groups,
Conservation Organizations, Sea

eries Service, the Gulf of Mexico
and South Atlantic Fishery Man-
agement Councils, the Atlantic

is believed that participation of all
the organizations will create a
cooperative atmosphere in which
a viable finfish by-catch research

cause the Federal government re-
gards finfish by-catch as one of
the most serious issues in marine

pressed hope that this coopera-

conflicts similar to those that
have occurred with other conten-
tious Fishery Management issues
in the past.

Tips On Spotting
A Counterfeit Bill
Can you spot a counterfeit
bill? If you handle money daily,
you should be aware of what a
counterfeit bill looks like.
The complicated and careful
process of making genuine cur-
rency is distinctive. United States
currency notes are made from de-
tailed, steel-plate engravings. A
counterfeiter uses photography to
copy original engraving.
Also, the U.S. currency sys-
tem uses high-quality, durable
paper that is unavailable to the
public. It has a certain feel and
strength to it. If the bill is torn,
you can see the small red and
blue threads running through it.
counterfeit paper may be whiter
with red and blue pen lines imi-
tating the threads.
Below are a few suggestions
to help you spot a counterfeit bill.
1. The Portrait. The genuine
bill's picture has eyes that sharp-
ly stand out and appear lifelike.
Whereas, the counterfeit's eyes
blend with the background and
the face appears whiter than nor-
2. The Seal. The genuine
saw-tooth points around the seal
are sharp and even. The copy
points are broken, uneven and
3. The Serial Numbers. The
genuine serial numbers are print-
ed in bold, evenly spaced figures.
The beginning letter always
matches the letter within the
seal. The counterfeit serial num-
bers may be out of line, and
printed too light or dark. The let-
ter within the seal may not agree
with the beginning of the serial
4. The Scroll Work. The gen-
uine scroll work has sharp, un-

Dove Hunting Season Changed
to Include Thanksgiving Holiday
Sportsmen who hunt mourn-
ing and white-winged doves can
enjoy the sport during Thanksgiv-
ing, a holiday which is synony-
mous with hunting for many Flor-
ida families. At its July 19
meeting, the Florida Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission
changed dates for the second
phase of the three-phase dove
season to include the Thanksgiv-
ing holiday weekend.
Mourning and white-winged
dove season for 1991 will be:
First phase: October 5-27
Second phase: November 16 -
Third phase: December 14 -
January 12, 1992.
The Commission's action re-
quired an amendment to Florida
Wildlife Code 39-13.008, which
had been advertised for amend-
ment, as legally required.
"Commission staff did not an-
ticipate changing the second
phase of dove season," said
James Antista, Commission attor-
ney. "However, the change was
one proposed by a citizen at the
meeting. The change in dates is
biologically sound and is in the
sportsman's interest; therefore,
the Commissioners voted to
amend the rule at the July meet-
ing. Action at the Commission's

Antista said sportsmen will be
able to hunt mourning and white-

there is some biological reason for

Weather Back to Normal
- Wet, Humid and Hot!
Mildew and Spores Are Everywhere
By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
Weather patterns have re-
turned to normal in Florida this
year with afternoon rains to keep
humidity high. Drier years just
past have put people off-guard.
But this year, mildew is thriving
outside. Spores from outside
come in on our clothing and hair.
Every time windows or doors are
opened, in come more spores.
Some people are allergic to mil-
dew spores. Such allergies are
sometimes triggered by continual
* exposure to mildew spores.
With mildew spores always
ready to grow in our homes, what
protection is needed to stop mil-
* Mission Trip
Dr. Dan Duncan, who just re-
turned from a mission group trip
to Australia, related some of his
experiences in the continent
down under, and showed a video
prepared by the district where he
visited to the Rotary Club last
Duncan visited in the north-
east portion of the country, near
the famous Barrier Reef. The
northern portion of the country is
the tropical section. Duncan was
in Fort Douglas, which is where
the rain forest section of the
country joins the Barrier Reef.
The Fort Douglas area is pri-
marily an agricultural area, with
the most common crops being
fruits and sugar cane. Most of the
sugar cane on the continent is
grown in the northeast tropical
The video, of course, made
much of the prevalence of croco-
diles and kangaroos in the coun-
try, but Duncan said he never
saw a wild crocodile during his
entire trip. "I did see a snake
which had his head in the ditch
on one side of the road and his-.-
tail in the ditch on the other
side," Duncan said.
The video showed some
breath-taking scenery in the Fort
Douglas area, much like tropical
Florida, with its lakes, streams,
tropical plants and lush greenery.
Duncan said he spoke to the
Rotary Club in Fort Douglas,
while on his trip. "They meet in a
famous restaurant, which oper-
ates in a huge tent, with all kinds
of animals and birds moving
about," he said. "It's unusual to
be eating and have a bird land on,
a limb beside you or an animal
crawl across your feet."
Duncan left July 2, on his
trip, taking 30 hours to fly to
Brisbane. He returned to Port St.
Joe, Friday, July 19.
Guests of the club were Brian
Bell of Gainesville, Georgia and
Jerry Gaskin of Wewahitchka.

dew from growing and spreading?
The watch words are clean and
Mildew must have nutrients
to grow on. The sources of mildew
nutrients are many. Any food
spills on carpets, smears on door
sills from sticky or oily fingers,
soap build up on shower walls,
dirt on clothes, dust on air condi-
tioner filters, the drain pan under
the refrigerator, even the air con-
ditioning ducts that channel air
to each home can be hot spots for
mildew to grow.
The first step in avoiding mil-
dew is to plan a program to keep
surfaces clean a regular rou-
tine. How often specific cleaning
jobs' needs to be done may be dif-
ferent for each family depending
on the family's lifestyle. Here are
some general guidelines in your
Don't let bathrooms become
mildew gardens. That means reg-
ular cleaning before mildew is vis-
ible. By the time mildew is visible
it has produced enough spores to

planted to other areas of the

frequently. Once a month may be
frequently enough for many
households, but if there are chil-
dren in a family, or pets, check
Check the drip pan under
your frost-free refrigerator and
freezer. Dust and dampness there
can produce enough mildew and
spores to contaminate all the air
in your home.
Wipe up spills as they occur.
Especially clean carpet spills and
spots quickly and thoroughly.
Mildew loves living in the cozy
carpet pile. Vacuum regularly,
too. Dust and dirt, good mildew
nutrients, are harder to remove
after they work down into the

Mildew needs moisture to
grow. The big question is "How
can you keep a home in warm,
humid Florida dry?
Air conditioning removes
moisture from air, but if moisture
comes into a house faster than
air conditioning can remove it,
mildew will show up and it will
spread. Air conditioning can usu-
ally remove the moisture pro-
duced inside a home through
cooking, cleaning, bathing and
other water related activities. The
moisture we need to be most con-
cerned about in Florida's warm
and humid climate comes into a
house from outside in one of sev-
eral ways and there are special
guidelines to cut down or prevent
moisture from coming into a
home for each way:
Every time people open out-
side doors to come and go, mois-
ture moves inside. People must
be free to come and go, but it will
help reduce moisture, if they
open and close doors promptly.
Air enters homes through
cracks and crevices. Just look
around windows and doors. If
you can see daylight anywhere,
that is an invitation to moisture
you can stop with weather strip-
ping. See your friendly hardware
store for the right type of weather
stripping for your window or door
A fireplace has a large open-
ing that air and moisture can
come through. Make sure the
damper (and glass doors, if
present) are closed.
Bath and kitchen exhaust
fans remove moisture and odors
from these rooms. That's good.
But they also create a negative

pressure in a house that pulls
warm, humid outside air into oth-
er parts of the house. That's not
so good. Usually a bath fan can
remove most of the excess mois-
ture put into the air during show-
ering or bathing in about 10 min-
utes. Wet towels and wet walls
will continue to put moisture into
a bathroom for hours, but long
fan operation can bring in more
moisture than it removes.
Keeping your home mildew-
safe during warm humid weather
requires a routine that is not diffi-
cult, but requires team effort.

home clean and dry to avoid the

are quiet and no one falls asleep.

Homemade Ice Cream
For folks from 8 to 80, ice cream
seems to be universally popular!
It's cool, creamy and soothing -
and, with all the new ice cream
makers today, it's easier to make
Begin all these variations with a
stirred custard base, add whipping
cream along with your choice of
flavorings, then chill and freeze. If
you prefer to use another favorite
recipe, be sure to cook the sweetened
egg and milk base.
For regular fluid milk and egg
mixtures, cook until a thin film of
custard adheres to a metal spoon
dipped into the mixture. At this
point, the custard will have reached
1600 F. When using evaporated or
sweetened condensed milk and eggs,
the mixture looks thick very early
in the cooking process and the
spoon test is less reliable. Use a
thermometer to be sure the mixture
has reached 1600 F. Once you've
made the base, cool it immediately
and chill it thoroughly before
ministration is August 1. 1991.

Small County Officials Begin Circling Their Wagons
The second such meeting of
small county leaders was held in
Tallahassee last week to form a
coalition of local governments
representing the 31 Florida
counties with populations of less
Delegates agreed the major
concern facing these counties is
the state's demands growing out
of the Growth Management Act of
Their concerns were backed
up by comments from a number
of legislators, one of whom point-
ed out, "One size does not fit all."
This remark from State Rep-
resentative Robert Trammell, D,
Marianna, set the tone for the
gathering hosted by Clerk of Cir-
cuit Court Willie D. Wise of Cal-
Wise pointed out the organi-
zation was not intended to be
break-away from the existing
clerks' association nor the Florida
Association of Counties but to
merely add emphasis io existing
While organizing in May,
some concern was expressed that
the Small County Coalition might
water down the effectiveness of
the state organizations, but Wise
insisted this was not likely, but
rather the opposite would occur.

gates to join the band wagon

resenting Dade County.
He explained this delegation
always votes as a block and can
put enough into the voting piles
to swing an issue in either direc-
Using this as a demonstra-
tion, Wise noted with the small
counties acting as one voice,
enough noise can be made to get
the attention of state govern-
'There is no way we can sit
here for three hours and go over
all the problems the small
counties face," he said, and urged
the group to, instead, vow to join
into that one voice.
Trammell added the "biggest
friend we have in the Legislature
is you people."
Trammell's colleagues Allen
Boyd, D, Madison County; J.J.
Holland, R, Hardee County; and
