House Fire Claims Life of Elderly Woman
An elderly woman died of smoke inhalation in a house fire
here in Port St. Joe about mid-morning Tuesday, according to
Police Chief Carl Richter.
Richter said the State Fire Marshal, Dewey Yates, of Panama
City, ruled that Mrs. Alyce Slowe, 76, died of accidental causes
in the fire which charred and smoked up the inside of the small
house where she lived at 528 1/2 Eighth Street.
Mrs. Slowe was found inside, lying on a couch, where she
had apparently gone to sleep while smoking a cigarette, setting
the couch on fire.
Herman Jones, who was passing by the house in his car
Tuesday morning, saw the smoke coming from the home and
called the fire department. After the fire department arrived and
started fighting the blaze, a neighbor of Mrs. Slowe, noticed a
sign on the door. indicating oxygen was kept inside the house.
Knowing it was highly explosive, Jason Knight kicked in the
-.., door, saw the bottle sitting just inside and pulled it out before it
could overheat and explode. Knight then saw Mrs. Slowe lying
--- on the couch in the burning room and went in to bring her out,
but it was too late to revive her from the smoke suffocation.
The fire was discovered at about 10:00 Tuesday morning,
... and quickly extinguished by the Volunteer Fire Department.
'A 0The victim was the first fire-related death in Port St. Joe
since the burning of the rooming house, known as Peter's Palace
on Avenue C in North Port St. Joe four years ago.
p- I i Mrs. Slowe had been a resident of Port St. Joe since the early
-S. ,1940's, except for just a few years when she made her residence
"4._.' elsewhere. She was the widow of the late Ben C. Williams, who
served Gulf County as its lone single county representative in

Millage Rate In
Commission Holds the Line In
Spending to Reflect Economy
It's just a small cut, you understand, but it is a cut in
millage in this day of every government entity in the nation
scrambling for more money to finance their operations.
The City of Port St. Joe finalized its tentative budget for
advertising purposes last Wednesday afternoon, and came
up with a proposed millage rate of 5.2904, a little less than
a tenth of a mill under last year's levy, as the Commission
came up with an operating budget of some $2,188,131.
Last year's budget, covering the entire city operation
with the exception of the Wastewater Treatment Plant, was
$2,031,637. The new budget plan reflects a spending in-
crease of $156,494 over last year.
PAY RAISE INCLUDED
The Commission worked a small pay raise for its em-
ployees into the new financial plan, even though money was
tight as the budget was drawn up. There was a sizable in-
crease in the new budget for financing the City's retirement,
which is tied in with the State Retirement System. State re-
tirement requirements took a jump this year, carrying Port
St. Joe's retirement plan contributions right along with it.
Streets and Highways and the Police Department re-
ceived the largest increases in the new budget. There were
really no large items for the two departments, but increases
in prices, increased retirement, and a few capital purchases
prompted the advance in the two budget items.
The Police Department was the main beneficiary of the
extra funding, with an increase of $52,887, bringing the de-
partment's budget total to $605,904. Benefits for police offi-
cers prompted the hike. A state-mandated retirement con-
tribution increase of $19,821; additional workman's
compensation insurance of $5,755 and officer training pro-
grams required an added $5,450. All of these increases
were required of the city. An item of $17,000 to provide hol-
iday for officers was an elective increase. The item will pay
officers having to work on holidays a special bonus rather
than requiring them to work for straight salaries during the
special holiday periods.,
Streets and highways received an additional $51,766.
Half this money will go to purchase a pot-hole patching ma-
chine. The rest of the increase will be for rental of equip-
ment and machinery and purchase of materials.
The City Warehouse budget, which reflects all of the
City's heavy equipment, will get an additional $48,324 in
the new budget year, bringing its total funding to $249,961.
The new money will be spent on motor vehicle repairs,
equipment repair, building repairs and maintenance. A
$10,000 item was included in the budget to participate in a
government surplus equipment program.
Other increases were shown in the Recreation Depart-
ment, up $3,807; Parks and Cemeteries, a $7,838 increase.
Three funds in the budget reflected reductions in their
totals, such as the Fire Department, down by $5,032 and
Non-Departmental expenditures, reduced by $8,100.
The big reduction was in the garbage department, where
$22,656 was sliced from the budget due to completion of a
lease plan, which had two new loader-packer trucks fi-
nanced. The $59,600 annual lease has been paid out. The
Garbage Department was also hit by an increased Work-
man's Comp contribution of $5,285.
Basic Changes Owner, Manager
Bob Freeman Returns to Run Plant; Premier Services Buys Facility
A Pennsylvania firm, Premier
Services Corporation, has ac-
quired several assets of CE Basic,
including its Port St. Joe plant, it
was announced this week by Ron
Wardle, Vice President and Gen-
eral Manager of the Chemicals Di-
vision of the firm.
Along with the change in
ownership, came a change in lo-,
cal plant management, with Rob-
ert Freeman of Port St. Joe, step- ,
ping into the plant manager
Freeman is well known in
Port St. Joe and in the chemicals
industry. Freeman had previously
managed the local seawater mag-
nesia plant in its earlier years,
being manager of the facility
when it was first built. He has
spent the past several years, serv-
ing as a consultant in his field, all
over the world.
Wardle told The Star his firm
had purchased the Basic assets

ville, Ohio and Brownsville, Tex-
Wardle said that with the ex-
ception of certain senior execu-
tives, virtually all Basic's person-
nel will remain with the new
parent company, PSC.
The Vice-President said the
local plant should experience
more steady operations than it
has in the past, under the PSC
ownership. "We don't anticipate
any immediate growth of any con-
sequence, but our operations
should be more consistent."
Freeman said, "I'm glad to get
back home and my wife is glad to
get me out of the house. We're
both glad to put an end to our

City Goes WithRoberts' Bid for Paving
County Commissioner Na-
than Peters brought his campaign
to oppose a paving contract with
C. W. Roberts Construction Com-
pany, to the City Commission for
support Tuesday night. The
County Commission had been
given approval by the City to con-
tract their paving work along with
county work at St. Joe Beach and
White City, as a joint project in
an attempt to get a lower price.
At the bidding two weeks ago,
the Board voted 4-1 to award the
contract to Roberts' firm, the low
bidder. Peters wanted to accept
the Florida Asphalt Paving firm
because he felt the company was
offering a better grade asphalt in
Peters essentially told the
City Commission the same thing
Tuesday, urging the Commission
to object to awarding the contract
to Roberts. Peters said, "We want
top grade roads in Port St. Joe.
Roberts' bid called for using type
three asphalt and Florida As-
phalt's bid specified they would
use S-II asphalt, which is a high-

jects director and who will be the
inspection officer for the city pro-
ject, also appeared before the
board, saying, "It doesn't matter
to me which firm you choose, but
you should have some facts to
make a decision by."
First, Rish told the Board
Florida Asphalt's intricate bid
was merely the list of specifica-
tions they and Roberts had been
sent to prepare their bid with.
"Roberts Just didn't send us back
our list of specifications. He
merely sent a copy of what he
would charge to pave your roads,
abiding by the specifications sent
Rish said the county had in-
structed its engineers, Basker-
ville-Donovan, to prepare plans to
give the county as many miles of
serviceable road for the money as
they could. 'The engineers recom-
mended the type three asphalt

Garbage Rates Increase Oct. 1
The City Commission had the
first reading, Tuesday night, of an
ordinance which will increase the
garbage and trash rates in the
Aimed at keeping the garbage
and trash collection services self
supporting, the ordinance would,
in effect, increase the cost of the
service to residences from the
present $6.00 per month to $8.00
for the twice weekly pick-up.
Trash pick-up will remain at one
time per week.
The Commission has made
an exception in their rate struc-
ture, keeping the charge at $6.00
per month for those households
with an annual income of
$12,000 or less. Special collection
of garbage or yard rubbish will be
charged at the rate of $10.00 per
Business establishments will
be charged $20.00 per month un-
der the new schedule for pick-up
three times per week. If more
than three pick-ups per week is
required, an additional $5.00 per
collection will be charged.
Commercial type garbage
containers will provided by the
City at a rate of $4.00 per yard
Eating establishments will be
picked up at least four times per
week and will be charged $35.00
per month. Super markets will be
collected five days per week at a
charge of $75.00 per month.
The new rate schedule will go
into effect with the billing for the
month of October, the first month
of the City's fiscal year.
S PAGE TWO THURSDAY, AUGUST 8,1991
The Tallahassee Democrat took up its editorial pen Wednes-
day of last week and came up with an epistle we couldn't believe
they could, in all good conscience, write.
They dealt with the case of one "Pee-Wee Herman", a so-
called entertainment personality, who was caught in a porno-
graphic movie house, in a raid by the vice squad, doing things
one doesn't do in polite society. The episode made the papers,
the TV, news magazines, radio. you name it.
The Democrat says all this publicity has tried and convicted
Herman unfairly before he has been tried in a court. The Demo-
crat said the attention given Paul Reubens [Herman's real name]
was because he was a celebrity and the resulting publicity would
ruin his career, even though the charges have not yet been prov-
en against him.
In the first place, Reubens' voluntarily identified himself to
the police after he had been taken to the station. Prior to that
time, he was just another sleaze-ball patronizing a house of por-
nography. He could have been "Jack Sprat" for all the police or
:, newspeople knew, until he revealed his stage name.
Given Reubens' [Herman's] connection with kids via his tele-
vision program, parents all over the United States have a right to
know what kind of person their children are being exposed to.
The producers of his program, to their credit, cancelled him im-
mediately. The Democrat says this is premature because he
hadn't been proven guilty, all in the name of "discussing the na-
ture of news and justice".
Reubens [Herman] was charged with exposing himself and
engaging in other improper activities. He says he isn't guilty.
Maybe he isn't. The fact there were vice squad detectives staking
out the place gives one suspicion that such things-or even
worse-did go on in that particular movie house.
With Reubens' association with a program which attracts in-
nocent children to imitate his actions, the fact that such a per-
son with his sphere of influence should even be in such a place
should be enough to gain him all the notoriety he has received
over the past few days.
We say he deserves what he is getting and our children do
not deserve what they would get if he wasn't taken out of circu-
lation for his associations or mis-deeds. Kids don't need the
message of society even remotely condoning such activities.
Shows His Colors
While we're talking about associations and their influence on
people, let's take a second look at Nelson Mandela. You remem-
ber Mandela. He's the former prisoner in South Africa who was
released, causing the entire world to heave a sigh of relief that
such a humanitarian should finally be set free.
Well, events between then and now, and the crumbling of the
Iron Curtain philosophy, has caused many to take a second look
at Mandela and his views on what is and what isn't freedom.
Th most recent look was just a little less than two weeks
ago, when Mandela visited his old friend and running buddy, Fi-
del Oastro in Cuba.
With the Communist movement falling apart all over the
world today, Castro and Mandela appeared before an audience
in Havana and declared they would never abandon the Commu-
nist philosophy. In Castro's words, "We would not even think" of
changing names of schools, streets, etc., after Marx and Lenin,
avowing his continued filiality to Communism. Mandela echoed
Castro's remarks, publicly blaming "Capitalism, imperialism and
neo-colonialism" for the ills of the Third World. Even the Com-
munist words have been maintained by the Red duo. Forgive the
play on words, but Mandela as finally publicly revealed his true
It's sad that leaders such as Mandela and Castro, who have
wielded such persuasive powers, can't be more concerned about
the needs of their people than they are about their own egos.
Mandela went on to jab at the United States [the "capitalists" he
was talking about] for not continuing to pour some of those capi-
talist dollars into his movement. A "don't come, but send your
With the world trend of public opinion building every day
against Communism, it may be to our benefit that Mandela and
Castro continue on their declared direction. If things go along as
they have started, it won't be long before these two will be noth-
ing more than a bad memory.
Hunker Down with Kes
Busted In Boston
I reckon this story today be-
gins in Baltimore. Now, I know
what you're thinking. Baltimore?
How did he get to Baltimore?
Well, we drove all day and all
night And we were really just
passing through on our way to
Fenway Park was the main
destination on this trip. We want-
ed to see the place where Babe
Ruth began his career. We want-
ed to check out firsthand the
greenmonster In left. We wanted
to see the bull pen in right where
Ted Williams' homerun off Rip Se-
well's famous Ephus pitch land-
ed. We were going to see the
ground around short stop where
Johnny Pesky used to pick'em;
and home plate, where the legen-
dary double X, Jimmy Foxx,
drunk or sober, would stand and
bang'em off the left field wall. At
the rate they're tearing down the
old parks, we figured If we didn't
get to Boston soon, Fenway
wouldn't be there.
As a matter of fact, we
stopped off in Baltimore because
this is the last summer for Memo--
rial Stadium. Next year, the Ori-
oles are moving to a brand new
park down by the water front.
John had arranged the trip. We'd
played ball together in college.
And he was a real baseball man.
Tradition, history, continuity,
symmetry listen, he under-
stands the game. But the boy
can't count worth a flip. He or-
dered four tickets and there wer-
en't but three of us.
John asked the policeman
outside Memorial Stadium If it
was O.K. In Maryland to sell an
extra ticket. John is a well re-
spected businessman in Atlanta.
He's never even had a speeding
ticket. He's not going to do any-
thing wrong. And he was not into
scalping tickets he just wanted
to save us ten bucks. The police-
man said, "No problem son, get
whatever you can for it."
John sold the ticket in no
time and we went in to see Cal
Ripken, Jr., who we knew would
be in the line up.
The game ended, after an
hour and a half rain delay,
around midnight and we cut a
trail to Boston. It's over 400 miles
from Baltimore to Boston, we had
time but we couldn't linger, the
game started that afternoon at
We drove through New Jersey
at night. Listen, John knows how
to plan a trip.
I don't venture north of the
Mason-Dixon Line very often. And
the big waitress at the eating
place that morning reminded me
why. She laughed when I ordered
"Where you'se guys from?"
I wasn't going to answer no-
body what couldn't speak good
English but Jackie was, as al-
ways, the diplomat, "I'm from
Tennessee, this guy is from Geor-

like we'd asked a stupid question.
"Heck no, me and Norman want

We were in Boston by 10:00
and out at Fenway Park by noonp.
It didn't matter to me that the
Red Sox had lost eight or nine
games in a row and were playing
terrible baseball. Just let me get
inside and see this park! "Hold on
a minute," John stopped us, "let's
sell this extra ticket, it won't take
but a second."
He sticks the ticket up in the
air and immediately a guy materi-
alizes in front of him. Boy howdy,

Are Our Leaders Resilient, Stupid or Forgiving?
A COLUMN BY Lewis Griz-
zard Friday of last week caused
me to realize that all this time I
have been wondering if Ameri-
cans are resilient, stupid or for-
giving. The first and last adjective
I could live with. But the second
doesn't sound much like Ameri-
cans; even if it seems to be the
most frequently displayed of the
three here of late.
Grizzard was writing about
the coming observance [we can
hardly say 'celebration' here] of
the golden anniversary of the
Japanese bombing of Pearl Har-
bor way back on December 7,
1941. The planes of the Japanese
Navy swooped in out of the sun at
the beginning of the day and
bombed and strafed Pearl Harbor
and the Hawaiian Islands for a
good part of a clay, causing 3,700
American casualties in that one
There was no hint. and no
warning: only Japanese diplo-
mats in Washington, D.C. on that
fateful day, drawing up a contin-
ued peace treaty and trade agree-
ment with the U.S. government.
That activity served U.S. cheer-
leaders all through the war. They
stabbed us in the back while they
were talking peace to our face.
Grizzard was angry and cha-
grined because of the protocol be-
ing followed in the memorial ob-
servance at Pearl Harbor. The
U.S. government isn't sending an
invitation to Japan to attend, nat-
urally. As a consequence, though,
we are not sending an invitation
to any other nation either. We're
not inviting our allies. The govern-
ment is fearful that such a snub
of Japan while inviting the ones
who helped us win the war,
would hurt the feelings of the
Land of the Rising Sun!
Grizzard is angry about the
situation and so should we all be.
WHICH BRINGS US to mak-
ing the decision as to whether our
people are resilient, stupid or for-
It takes a tough nation to be
resilient enough not to risk hurt-
ing the feelings of a nation which
doesn't seem to care whether or
not it hurts our feelings. It is evi-
dent the nation doesn't give a fig
about the feelings or well-being of
its best customer. They don't
even seem to be concerned over
whether the nation remains eco-
nomically healthy or not.
As we all remember, they
didn't even voluntarily agree to
foot a portion of the bill for the
Desert Storm operation, even
though they received more direct
benefits from it than did the Unit-
ed States. From what I read, they
still haven't paid what they
pledged and are acting like they
do not now intend to.
The resiliency thing comes in
from turning the other cheek with
Japan so many times we have ar-
thritis in the neck and from our
country cn(.Cllnuing to be one of
the economic powers of the world,
despite the drain being perpetrat-
ed on our resources.
STUPIDITY. NOW, THERE Is
a word which is almost daily on
the lips of Americans in describ-
ing its leadership.
Here we have a nation in the
Pacific dickering with our country
over whether or not we will be
able to maintain two of the most
strategic bases in the South Pa-
cific; a nation which was torn
apart by the Japanese, but still
stood by us; and they didn't get
an invite to the ceremony at Pearl
Harbor. We didn't even invite
England or Australia or
China ... or New Zealand ... or
How stupid can a country
get? Here are nations which have
stuck with us over the years [ex-
cept maybe for a few factions in
the Philippines] and we're not in-
VIting them to one of our more
solemn gatherings. merely be-
cause we think it may offend a
-nation which has declared shoot-
ing and economic war against us
I can't help but wonder if
maybe the feelings of our former
allies aren't hurt just a teeny little
bit. Could it be that such stupidi-
ty is one of the reasons we're hav-
ing such a tough time nailing
down those Philippine bases?
THEN, THERE'S THE word
'forgiving'. Americans have always
been a generous people with the
world. They have been generous
to a fault, in the opinion of some.
The nation has continued to give
away its largess even during
times when it was having real
problems of its own. Our give
away habits are responsible for a
substantial amount of our unbe-
lievable national debt.
Forgiving? Yes, we're forgiv-
ing. But, we are tough when the
situation arises and the Ume
I have no qualms with our
nation being forgiving. I would
rather it be forgiving and gener-
ous, as it is, than to have it be
stingy and greedy with its re-
sources like Japan is.
Rather than helping the
downtrodden of the world, the
Japanese spend their growing
mound of cash in buying up por-
tions of the rest of the world. If it
is a profitable venture, the Japa-
nese will buy it, and search for
Meanwhile, not too far from
their shores, their cousins wallow
in misery and disease: poverty
After all these words, I have
come to the conclusion that it
takes a bigger nation to take
steps not to offend someone, than
it takes to run rough-shod, eco-
nomically or militarily over what-
ever part of the rest of the world
it Is able to.

Some Thoughts on
According to several articles I read last week, Pee-Wee Her-
man real name Paul Reubens --was arrested July 26 for some
obscene act in an adult theater in Sarasota. Reubens plays Pee-
Wee Herman on the now-cancelled children's television show,
This article is not written to defend or accuse Pee-Wee for his
alleged act(s). Rather it is some thoughts I have after reading sev-
eral articles reporting Pee-Wee's arrest and the aftermath. Also,
included are some thoughts I had about Pee-Wee before and after
*Pee-Wee had a wonderful children's television show, in my
opinion. The few times I watched parts of it, I thought it was a
great show for kids. It featured all sorts of talking furniture, had
some interesting characters, and Pee-Wee was just plain silly He
also talked funny.
*Although Pee-Wee acted kinda like a sissy, I always thought
he was out of character. Maybe he was and maybe he wasn't. I
still don't know.
*From the picture I saw in the paper taken after his arrest,
Pee-Wee had himself disguised pretty well. If he had given an ali-
as, he probably would have gotten off without being discovered.
Not Pee-Wee though. He had to announce who he was. "I'm Pee-
Wee Herman," he said to the arresting officer.
*If Pee-Wee had wanted to see some XXX rated movies, I won-
der why he didn't just turn on the television at his parent's
house. If they objected, he could have waited until they went to
*I don't think Pee-Wee was wearing a bow tie and white socks
when he was arrested. If he was, he took the bow tie off before
they took the mug shot.
*If what I've heard about some of the adult movies are true, I
wonder how they can arrest anyone for doing anything when it's
not half as bad as what they're watching on the screen. Why not
arrest the owner of the theater and close the joint down?
*I wonder how much of the picture the arresting officer
watched before he put the cuffs on Pee-Wee.
*I heard a joke about two ladies who went to an adult theater
one time, but I can't tell it here.
*The three movies that were playing the night Pee-Wee was
arrested were, Nancy Nurse, Turn Up The Heat, and Tiger Shark.
All three have pretty decent sounding names, if you ask me. I
don't think I'll try to catch them in a theater near here, though.
*Pee-Wee, in. my opinion, made a terrible mistake when he
tried to get off by offering to perform a children's benefit for the
local sheriffs office. Might as well give a pyromaniac a job in a
*The man who organized the Pee-Wee Herman Defender's

Billy was playing sandlot
baseball. He was catcher a
brave one without a mask. As
fate would have it, the batter
swung at a pitch and the back-
swing hit Billy in the mouth and
chipped off two of his front
teeth. This is a typical dental
emergency which requires immc
diate dental care.
When injury exposes the
tooth pulp, it can be serious
since the potential for infection
is high. The pulp is the inner-
most chamber of the tooth and
contains nerves and blood ves-
Temporary treatment of in-
jured tooth pulp includes the
use of a sedative dressing to cut
down sensitivity in the area. If a
pulpectomy (removal of the pulp
material) is necessary, it will be
followed by root-canal therapy,
and the use of a crown or a cap
if the tooth can be preserved.
Until you can get to a den-
tiet following an injury, keep the
mouth as clean as possible by
rinsing it with a solution of salt
water. If there are loose teeth,
no food should be chewed until

A typical fertilizer recommen-

elements, also called trace ele-

Most garden hobbyists recog-
nize the importance of the three
major fertilizer elements. Nitro-
gen, phosphorus, and potassium.
But, how much do you know
how do plants use them? I'll try
to answer some basic questions
about trace elements your plants
are likely to need.
The minor elements I'll talk
about are boron, copper, iron,
manganese, molybdenum, and
zinc. We call these minor ele-
ments, because we only find trac-
es of them in the soil if they're
present at all. A few parts of a mi-
nor element spread through mil-
lions of parts of soil are usually
all a plant needs.
Boron is required to stimulate
a process called meristem diffe-
rentiation. At the tip of a plant,
cells multiply as generalized tis-
sue into leaves, roots, and so on.
That is, without boron, the meri-
stem remains undifferentiated.
Zinc controls a plant's ability
to make a material called indolea-
cetic (in-DOLE-ah-SEE-tic) acid,
which influences plant growth
and root development.
Plants use molybdenum in
making protein a vital part of
every living cell plant or ani-
Manganese and iron serve a
couple of important functions.
First, plants need them to make
chlorophyll, which is essential for
photosynthesis the process by
which plants produce sugars and
starch from carbon, oxygen, and
hydrogen. Also, manganese and
iron along with copper act
as catalysts, or plant enzyme acti-
vators. A plant may not make
anything out of these elements,
but they have to be present for
certain life processes to go on.
Finally, we'll consider calcium
and sulfur, which are included in
a group of plant nutrients called
secondary elements. Plants use
calcium in building new cells.
This element is an essential part
of the cell wall structure. A com-
pound made with calcium also
helps plants maintain the right
acid level inside its cells. Sulfur is
used in making amino acids -
the building blocks of protein. We
also find sulfur in oil compounds
that give some plants distinctive
When plants don't get the mi-
nor anid secondary elements they
need, deficiency symptoms ap-
Have you ever felt that you
were surrounded by negative peo-
ple? That was the case with Mo-
ses and Aaron in the wilderness.
While in Egypt the Israelites lived
like Moses to recognize it and
say, "It is the bread which the
Lord has given you to eat." (EX

in towns and cities. But now, to
their displeasure, they were fac-
ing the hardships of desert life.
These former slaves were
trained to be construction work-
ers, farmers and herdsmen. But
now they were being forced to
learn new living skills. They were
getting a crash course on how to

Like many people who must
make lifestyle adjustments, they
wanted to return to the status
quo of former days. They thought
it was better to be well-fed slaves
than to be struggling free men.
The Israelites had developed
negative patterns of thought,
making them fall prey to circum-
stances. The wilderness experi-
ence was only intensifying their
negative thinking. Their bad atti-
tude was threatening to destroy
Negative thinking is always
self-centered. You can prove that
point by listening to how many

live in more positive households
appear to be happier and they ex-
perience a higher level of success.
The opposite is true of people who
live in an environment of criti-
cism and negative attitudes.
Negative thinking affects
body, mind and soul. That's why
we try to be cheerful and produce
a calm setting when people are ill.
When it comes to your health, a
positive attitude can make the
difference between recovery and
One of the saddest things
about negative thinking is that it
causes us to miss opportunities.
That's because we fail to. see
things clearly when we cloud our
minds with pessimistic thinking.
Do you remember what hap-
pened in the Exodus story? The
people were griping and com-
plaining about everything. They
blamed Moses for all their trou-
bles. Their attitude kept them
from seeing that God had already
made provisions for their daily
When the people of Israel saw
the manna on the grass, they
didn't know what it was so they
said one to another, "What is it?"
It took a positive thinking person
and me. If we see things in a neg-

If you see yourself in this arti-
cle, try these simple suggestions.
First, stop dwelling on nega-
tive thoughts. And while you are
at it, avoid skeptics and pessi-
mists as much as you can. Their
negative attitude can only hurt
Second, start thinking about
the good, positive things in your
life. In fact, make a list of your
blessings and concentrate on
Finally, seek out positive peo-
ple and surround yourself with
them at every opportunity. Being
with successful people will teach
you how to be more accomplished
in your own endeavors.
If you will do these simple
things, you will start to recognize
more of the blessings that God
pours down from heaven. And
you will find yourself pointing
them out to others.

Fishermen, Hunters, Get Chance to Purchase Long-Term Licenses
Hunting and fishing enthu-
siasts won't have to renew their
licenses each year now that the
state has created lifetime and
five-year licenses for freshwater
fishing, saltwater fishing and
hunting. The licenses are for Flor-
ida residents only.
Lifetime and five-year licenses
aren't only a boon for forgetful
folks. They will make great gifts
for spouses, children and grand-
children, according to Pete Join-
er, assistant director of adminis-
trative services for the Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission.
"We hope parents, grandpar-
ents and family friends will pur-
chase lifetime licenses for chil-
dren 'and pass on the joys of
outdoor recreation to the next
generation,". Joiner said. "Chil-
dren who learn to love the out-
doors are more likely to take a
role in conserving our natural re-
The Commission will begin is-
suing the new licenses in Janu-
ary. Joiner expects the Commis-
sion to make applications
available in November, so lifetime
licenses can be purchased as hol-
iday gifts. He said recipients of a
gift license will receive a certifi-
cate suitable for framing in addi-
tion to the actual license.
"We're still in the develop-
inent stage on that, but we will
make the license an attractive
gift," Joiner said.
Leading King Mackerel
Earl Traugott Sr. is shown holding onto the 25.5 pound King
Mackerel he caught aboard the Brown Marlin of Spindrift Charters.
The King is now leading in the Mexico Beach King Tournament.
Mr. Traugott is visiting his son, Earl Traugott Jr. of Mexico
Beach. Also shown in the photo is Trade Norwood of St. Joe Beach.
Fees for lifetime licenses are:
*Lifetime resident freshwater
fishing license: four years of age
or younger $125; five to 12 years
of age $225; 13 and older $300.
*Lifetime resident saltwater
fishing license: four years of age
or younger $125; five to 12 years
of age $225; 13 and older $300.
*Lifetime resident hunting li-
cense: four years of age or young-
er $200; five to 12 years of age
$350; 13 years of age or older
*Lifetime resident sports-
man's license: four years of age or
younger $400; five to 12 years of
age $700; 13-63 years of age
$1,000; 64 years of age or older,
A lifetime sportsman's license
covers freshwater fishing, saltwa-
ter fishing and hunting, and all
activities authorized by a man-
agement area stamp, muzzleload-
ing gun stamp, turkey stamp,
archery stamp, Florida waterfowl
stamp, snook stamp and crawfish
The lifetime sportsman's li-
cense also will authorize all activ-
ities for which a license, stamp or
fee is subsequently imposed.
The legislation also created
five-year licenses. The fee for a
five-year resident freshwater fish-
ing or saltwater fishing license is
$60. The fee for a five-year hunt-
ing license, which includes the
archery, muzzleloading gun, wild-
life management area, turkey and
state waterfowl stamps, is $270.
Lifetime and five-year licenses
will be issued by the Florida
Game and Fresh Water Fish Com-
mission, rather than tax collec-
tors and their subagents. The
funds generated by these licenses
will be deposited in the Lifetime
Fish and Wildlife Trust Fund, the
Dedicated License Trust Fund
and the Marine Resources Con-
servation Trust Fund to support
fish and wildlife programs.
Having a lifetime license will
not exempt young hunters from
the newly-required hunter safety
"If the Commission receives
proof that the youth has complet-
ed the course at the time the li-
cense is issued, the license will
reflect that," Joiner said. "If the
youth hasn't completed the
course when the lifetime license
is issued, he or she must carry.
proof of having completed the
course along with the lifetime li-
cense when hunting."
Joiner said that the Commis-
sion will issue a new lifetime li-
cense which reflects completion
of the hunter safety course to
sportsmen who submit proof of
completion of the course along
with their old lifetime license.

Rotary Given Tips for
Buying Tax-Free Bonds
Dealing with recessions, in- The professional investor sai(
terest and tax-free bonds, was a person can gain a steady in
the subject of a program on fl- come from a safe and secure in
nancial matters presented to the vestment, by purchasing the
Rotary Club by Bill Cordell of proper municipal bonds for his fi
Shearson, Lehman Associates, nancial portfolio.
Cordell offered the opinion
that the recession/inflation cycles
go up and down in a continuous
cycle, following one another.
Tracking the two natural phe-
nomenon across a graph looks
like an inch worm crawling
across a straight line.
Asking the question, 'Will the
recession soon be over?" Cordell
answered, saying, "Yes, I believe
the worst will be over by fall and
interest rates will begin to go
down." He went on to say that if
interest falls below its point be-
fore the,, recession, the rates will
contirite to be low. for about 10
years. He went on to declare that
news on the economy was getting
better by the day.
As for advice for purchasing
tax-free bonds, Cordell said there
are five points to consider. These
are: growth, income, liquidity,
taxes and safety.

He declared the bonds as not

but steady in their income pro-
duction. "How safe are municipal
bonds?" he asked. "Even during
the great depression of the 30's,
98% of the municipal bonds paid
their interest and principal pay-
ments in full and on time."
Cordell recommended bonds

cause they were exempt from

Steel Shot Mandated for Duck Hunters
New Rule Applicable Statewide for Hunting Water Fowl
At its July 19 meeting, the
Florida Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission passed regula-
tions requiring the use of non-
toxic steel shot statewide when
hunting ducks and coots. The

plan to phase out lead shot.
Lead shot is sometimes con-
sumed by ducks and coots, which
causes lead poisoning in ducks
and coots and possibly in species
which consume ducks and coots.
Duck loads containing pellets
thin-coated with copper and nick-
el are considered steel shot and
are legal to use when steel shot is

Fill as much space as possible

jobi), leaving enough room to
