Tommy Speights,
spokesman for the Depart-
ment of Transportation in
Chipley, told The Star yes-
terday that Monday. Sep-
tember 23, will be a big day
in Gulf County for bridges.
It will be the day the White
City high rise span is offi-
cially opened for traffic and
the day L&A Construction
Company gets underway
with the long-awaited High-
land View bridge.
Earlier this week,
George Roberts, of C.W.
Roberts Construction Com-
pany said his firm would
have the paving work com-
pleted on the White City
bridge approaches by Mon-
day, "barring any unfore-
seen problems" but
Speights said the opening
would be delayed until the
following Monday to allow
the paving time to cure
properly.

White City to Borrow



$350,000 From FmHA

To Provide Additional Funding for Construction

of New Water System for Community Residents


White City citizens have
agreed to make a loan with the
Farmers Home Administration to
furnish the remaining $350,000
in funds needed to install a cen-
tral water system in that small
community in the center of the
county.
Special projects director,
Ralph Rish advised the Board
Tuesday that he had met with the
citizens recently and discussed
the need for additional financing
to complete the project. The State
of Florida has provided a grant of
$200,000 for the system, which
will require an estimated
$550,000 to build.
Work on the system must be-
gin before the calendar year ends,
or the County faces loss of the
state grant.
Rish told the Commission
Tuesday night, that approval to
make a $350,000 loan with FHA
'was almost unanimous" at the
meeting.
Fanners Home Administra-
tion was the agency which sup-
plied money to build the other
systems in unincorporated areas
in the county, also.
The Board gave Rish and the
chairman authority to begin pro-
cedures to make the loan with
FHA.
COMPLAINTS COME
With the sending of the Trim
notices by Gulf County, Commis-
sioners are beginning to get com-
plaints about increased tax bills.
. According to the Gulf County'
Commissioners' reaction at their
Tuesday meeting, the individual
board members are beginning to
get some adverse comments con-
cerning the current tax increase.
Trim Notices, sent out in Au-
gust by the Board of Commission-
ers, reflected an average of about
9.3% increase overall. Of course,
each Individual piece of property.
might have fluctuated by a differ-
ent percentage, depending on cir-
cumstances involved with the
property.
Commissioner Billy Traylor
remarked, "We need to set the
record straight somehow. We
aren't responsible .but for about
two percent of the total tax in-
crease in the county."
The Trim notices reflected ex-
pected tax charges from the
county, the School Board, local
School Board levies, the individu-
al cities in the county, and the
water management district.
While the average overall tax
increase added up to an approxi-
mate 9.3%, in Port St. Joe, the
notices reflected an average in-
crease over last year's revenues
by individual taxing bodies of:
Gulf County, 11.5%; the School
Board, 11%; Local Board levy in-
crease of 14.6%; City of Port St.
Joe, reduced by 1.9% and Water
Management District, up by
2.7%.
Traylor, who lobbied the
board to be frugal with its budget


Tax Collector Reports on How

'90 Receipts Were Distributed


Tax Collector, Eda Ruth Tay-
lor, filed her report on the collec-
tion and distribution of tax dol-
lars for fiscal 1990 in a report
filed with the County Commission
Tuesday.
Taylor's report showed that
she was charged with collection
of $8,201,185.67 during fiscal
1990, including the fees, penal-
ties and subtractions.
The report showed that some
$8,708.13 in taxes were uncol-
lected and litigation was in pro-
cess for $162,646.28 because of
disputes over the totals.
Those who paid their taxes
early, earned discounts, totaling
$255,389.
In the distribution of tax
money between the several taxing
agencies in the county, various
departments in county govern-


as it was. being prepared, ob-
served, "I know we caused some
of the increase, but we're getting
credit for more than we did."
COURT COSTS
Attorney Bob Moore, later in
the meeting, presented one of the
reasons for that tax increase for
the current budget, when he- ad-
vised the Board that in the fu-
ture, the County would be re-
sponsible for some of the court
procedure expenses which had
formerly been borne by the State
of Florida.
Reporting on a notification
from State's Attorney Jim Apple-
man, Moore said Appleman's re-
port revealed Florida had shifted
the expense of incarcerating and
trying out-of-state felons caught
in Florida, to the individual
Counties where the criminal is
caught.
PROTESTS CHARGES
Marvin Jones filed a protest
with the Board over the increased
charges in building permits and
inspections, made at their meet-
ing two weeks ago.
Jones said he was protesting
"as a private citizen" and objected
to "the 400% increase in building
fees levied by the county."
In addition to the charges for
fees, Jones said he was also op-
posing the practice, scope and
power of the building ordinance,
which requires a permit and in-
spection of all buildings inside
the county of more than $2,000
value.
Jones objected to increased
expenditures in the building de-
partment but Commissioner Billy
Traylor defended the expenditure,
saying the county was spending
less for operation of the depart-


ment received the following
amounts:
General Fund, $2,714,763.
Fine and Forfeiture Fund,
$816,060.
Certificates of Indebedness,
$60,957.
Health Unit, $34,342.
St. Joseph Fire Control Dis-
trict, $46,281.
Tupelo Fire Control District,
$12,141.
Howard Creek Fire Control
District, $4,352.
Overstreet Fire Control Dis-
trict, $2,818.
School Board, $2,917,477.
City of Port SL Joe,
$1,057,911.
City of Wewahitchka,
$86,164.
NWF Water Management Dis-
trict, $21,171.


ment now than it was three years
ago.
Commissioner Nathan Peters
agreed with Jones that the fee
schedule of the revised ordinance
was too high. Peters had voted
against the change, which was
made to cooincide with the
Southern Building Code, which
the county's ordinance follows.
Later in the meeting, Ralph
Rish reported he and building in-
spector, Don Butler had met with
Jones and showed him the infor-
mation he had was wrong and
mostly out-of-date. "We were able
to show him that while one line In
the schedule of charges had
changed by nearly 400%, another
line had been reduced by about
the same amount. Actually, the
charge schedule increases about
2.5%, and not 400%," Rish said.
In a related matter, County
Attorney Robert M. Moore, pe-
sented the Board with the first
draft of a proposed ordinance to
regulate the installation of under-
ground petroleum storage tanks
in the county.
The new ordinance would re-
quire a permit for all tanks of 150
gallons in size and larger. A per-
mit would be required to install,
remove or relocate a petroleum
storage facility.
The proposed ordinance will
be considered at the next two
meetings of the Board.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business items to be
considered Tuesday, the Board:
-Heard a report that Sunbelt
Fish Farms had received the first
phase of its financing and had
purchased a large tract of land in
the Willis Landing area for their

DOT Taking Bumps Out of 5th


Street Sidewalks Are Next!


It has been a long time since Port St. Joe
motorists had a smooth ride on Fifth Street,
which is also Florida Highway 71 through the
city.
It won't be that way much longer, says Joe
Mastro, of the DOT maintenance office out of
Panama City.
This week, Mastro and his crews were in
Port St. Joe for the second of three visits to cor-
rect a total of seven broken sections of the di-
vided highway which separates the business
from the residential sections of the city.
Mastro said his crews replaced two sections
of the concrete paving last week. Tuesday, they
were pouring the concrete on two more sec-
Lions. In a few days, the crew will be returning
to replace three additional sections.
The broken paving is being replaced with a
six-inch slab of re-enforced concrete.
SIDEWORK WORK
In addition to the paving work, Mastro said
his crew will be replacing all bad sidewalk sec-


tions bordering state highways in the city in
the very near future.
The state is responsible for highways on
Fifth Street, Constitution and part of Monu-
ment Avenue [from the west city limits to
Eighth Street].
Mastro said, 'We've already surveyed the
sidewalks and marked the sections to be re-
placed. We did that several weeks ago. Those
sidewalks you see with a black mark on them
are scheduled to be removed and re-poured."
The sidewalk work will not be done by DOT
crews. Mastro said, 'The DOT has determined
it is less expensive to hire a contractor for the
work, than it is to do the work with our own
crews. This job will be performed by a contrac-
tor."
The work crew supervisor said the contrac-
tor is already at work in the county. 'They're
working on sidewalks in Wewahitchka now,
and as soon as they finish, they will be down
here."

THE STAR


PAGE TWO THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 12,1991


Saved!

We're not one for giving out free political advertising, but all
rules are subject to be broken or contrary actions taken. That
time has come and we're breaking it.
We seldom, if ever, print a free hand-out, or an obviously
self-serving "news release" which politicians on a state and na-
tional level are prone to flood the news media with when they be-
come active candidates for some office or other. It seems that
when they qualify to become candidates, suddenly everything
they think, say or do, qualifies as a collectible or something eve-
ryone should know about.
So, they mail out the common, everyday, dull "news release"
and there are a few out there who print, air or show their
breathless news to an unsuspecting public.
The reason we're deviating from our former and avowed posi-
tion of never wasting the space to print these missiles from the
minds of manipulators was an announcement we saw in the pa-
pers last Wednesday evening, while we were watching the Atlan-
ta Braves taking a pounding on ESPN.
Here is that political "news": Jerry Brown, the former govern-
or of California is going to forego the opportunity to run for the
U.S. Senate to seek the office of President of the United States,
instead. According to the tone of the article, we should all be
grateful that Brown is making this sacrifice for his country and
all the people who live in it. No matter that Jerry has made the
same deal available to Americans in the past, only to have the
most of us say, "No thanks, Jerry. We'll pass on you this time."
Come to think of it, we seem to remember that Gary Hart
made a more viable race for the Presidency that did Jerry
Brown. If that's so, and it is truly time for Jerry to make one
more try at grabbing the brass ring, it may just be the proper
time for Gary to come out of the woods of Colorado, try to side-
step all the blondes in his pathway and try once again to make it
to the house on the Potomoc without getting way-layed [or way-
laid] to the Bahamas.
It was getting to be a pretty desperate situation. All the Dem-
ocratic hopefuls for the office have been dropping by the wayside
like flies. No Republicans at all have come out of the woodworks
to challenge their current party standard-bearer. There is a de-
cided drought of presidential candidates.
Until Jerry. came along! If he, or somebody, doesn't try
George Bush at the polls, we might just decide to have an elec-
tion where nobody comes. Another thing; whoever heard of hav-
ing a Presidential election in the United States without at least
two men opposing one another?
Jerry, you probably saved us from a boring summer and ear-
ly fall in 1992. If it were not for you, we might not have a single
program preempted for a paid political announcement and who
ever heard of that happening before in an election year?

Dog Flies on the Spray List

The matter didn't draw much publicity, but we notice that
the State of Florida is getting back into the dog fly spraying busi-
ness. You remember about six months ago, the state announced
that one of the casualties of tight money would be the few bucks
Florida spent on making the beaches area of northwest Florida
habitable for those people who live here and those thousands of
tourists the state and individual Chambers of Commerce lured
here to spend their money.
Dog Fly spraying is not a luxury to those of us who live here
in the Panhandle, near the coast. It is a definite necessity, just
like street lights, filled potholes and "curve" signs. It really
doesn't make sense for Florida to spend millions of dollars each
year to lure tourists to the Sunshine State, to the state parks, to
the beaches and to the outdoor activities which our state offers,
only to have those same tourists eaten alive by dog flies.
We don't know what argument some lobbyist used in per-
suading state government the dollars spent for controlling dog
flies was just as important as dollars spent for protecting the
nesting turtle. Whoever he or she was, it would have made their
job more simple and effective if we could have bottled up a few
dog flies, shipped them to Tallahassee and turned them loose in
the room where the decision was being made. The dog fly would
have done the persuading for us.
We realize that taxes are beginning to. eat us alive [something
like the dog fly, in season]. We realize that there are some people
who can put up a mighty good argument against removing any
program in the state arsenal from the funding list of our state
government. Every state program or activity should have a
sound reason for its existence, or it should not be. Therefore rea-
sons can be found to support all of them. If, however, we have to
decide between stopping the funding of dog fly eradication or fi-
nancing the relocation of nuisance alligators, we will opt for the
dog fly eradication every time.


L Hunker Down with Kes



"Dad, Quit Writing and Deal!"


\ Kesley
Sv Colbert

My mother is Southern Bap-
tist. To be more precise, Mom is
way-down-deep-South Southern
Baptist. Now, I don't rightly know
what a "Hardshell Baptist" is, but
those stones that sometimes get
tossed at Baptists just bounce
right off of her. Mama didn't allow


no card playing at our house.
Well. she didn t allow those cards
with the aces and kings and one-
eyed jacks. We played a card
game put out by Parker Brothers
called Rook. I never went into it
with Mom, but I couldn't under-
stand why real cards were out
but Rook was o.k. After all, it was
just another card game.
I remember like it was yester-
day, Dad teaching us how to play.
'Why do they call it Rook?"
"Son, the bird on the back is
a rook."
I'd turn a card over and study
on that bird for a while. Looked


like a crow to me! And I had no
problem with the green. red and
black cards but the yellow cards
w.ere. and are to this day. a mys-
te'r to me. "Dad. why do these
cards have yellow written on
them, they're orange."
"Son, great minds have been
pondering that question since Mr.
Parker invented the game in
1906." Shucks, he didn't know ei-
ther.
We'd play regular Rook, Ken-
tucky Discard, Over the Top, Call
Partners, Red One Catches All,
Tennessee Rook for Two and
sometimes we'd even make up


our own game. Leon, as the old-
est. usually came up with the
new games. Like. he'd announce
that the green 7 would catch any-
thing and it was worth 50 points.
'Course. looking back on it now,
when we played green 7 high,
that card was always in Leon's
hand. You had to watch Leonl
The first time in my life that I
ever "stayed up all night", we
were playing Rook. We were so
busy bidding for the "widow",
making trumps, trying to "set"
the other team and hoping to get
the all important Rook Bird card
with every deal that I didn't even
notice the sun coming up. I think
the official rules say the first
team to 300 wins. Shoot, we'd
play to 10,000 or next Tuesday,
whichever came first.
Playing with Dad was great.
Along about 10:30 he'd say, "One
more hand and let's go to bed."
Well, the cards didn't fall just *
right for him. We played on.
Around 11:00 he'd say, "Boys,
one more handand let's call it a
night." I never saw my Dad laugh
as much over anything as he did
a good Rook game. About halfway
through a hand, when he realized
he was a'holding the green 14
you needed, he'd get that little
grin and start telling us about
Uncle Marvin or Uncle John or
playing baseball with Jesse Cole
White. Around midnight, he'd get
up and put on a pot of coffee.
When I was home from col-
lege in the summer, Jackie Burns
would drop by and as always ask,
"Mrs. Colbert, you don't happen
to have any chocolate pie?"
That would get us in the
kitchen, around the table. "How
about a little Rook, Dad?"
'Well, we'll play a hand or
two and then let's go to bed." Da-
vid would deal. "Iid I tell you
boys that Jesse Cole White could
pitch with either hand?" We were
off and running.
Ricky Gene got off work at
the post office at 2:00 a.m. He'd
come in, pull up the extra chair
and look over his first hand, "I'll
bid 85 any pie left?"
My Uncle F.D. was a near
'bout Rook professional. On one
of his visits we started playing
right after supper. We played all
night. Leon left to go to work at
eight the next morning. When he
came home at five that afternoon,
we were still playing. He came in,
sat down and said, "Whose deal is
it?"
It was like he'd just gotten up
for a minute to stretch. We took
our Rook pretty seriously.
Years later, at my father's fu-
neral, Jackie shook my hand,'
hugged my neck and stood there
in that awkward silence you expe-
rience at a time like that. "One
more hand and let's call it a
night."
We laughed and cried togeth-
er.
I've taught my boys how to
play Rook. It's amazing. We don't
watch T.V. anymore.
"Dad, why do they call it
Rook?"
"Why are these yellow cards
orange?"

You Only Get One Chance At Doing It Correctly


WHAT'S WITH Americans,
anyhow? I read these days where
the best selling book on the liter-
ary market is a "how-to" book
about different and sundry ways
to exit this vale of tears.
The name of the book is "Fi-
nal Exit", written by Derek Hum-
phry. I once knew a guy by the
name of Humphry, but he has
long since taken his final exit be-
fore he could write a book.
Recently, the book made the
New York Times' best-seller list
for literature. All of this goes to
show that either people or the
New York Times have strange 'lit-
erature' tastes. This, of course,
was proven by Salmon Rushdie's
"Satanic Verses" which got him
into all kinds of trouble with the
Arabs and filled up his bank ac-
count to overflowing.
"Final Exit" will probably fill
up the bank account of Derek
Humphry, if the indicated popu-
larity of the new book on how to
delicately and decidedly end one's


Etaoin Shrdlu


By Wesley Ramsey


life is anywhere near the truth.
I HAVE TO ADMIT, I am
panning the book without having
read it. But, then, I'd be willing to
wager a lot of those writing about
this particular book have never
read it, nor do they intend to.
Humphry is said to be graph-
ic in his book. He describes meth-
ods to be used to snuff out the
old ticker in easy to follow in-
structions. I'm wondering if his
instructions are easier to follow
than the ones to put together a
kid's jungle gym set?
You know the ones I mean.
There is a box full of assorted


parts and a pamphlet as thick as
an encyclopedia, with instruc-
tions, drawings and detailed ex-
planations on just how to put
that thing together. The Santa
Claus hour has caught many a
father trying to figure out how to
get the left-over parts into their
correct place on one of those
things. A jungle gym set was the
inspiration for the Rubic's Cube.
Both are equally as mystifying.
HUMPHREY'S BOOK lists
his favorite suicide method as
taking prescription drugs in com-
bination with placing a plastic
bag over the head. The article I


read didn't say what kind of pre-
scription drugs, so, if you want to
find out, you'll just have to go
somewhere and plunk down the
$16.95 it takes to buy Humphry's
book.
I have no trouble taking pre-
scriptions, prescribed by my doc-
tor, but I'm prone to quit taking
them when I get tq feeling better.
Putting a plastic bag over my
head doesn't make good sense.
There's directions plainly printed
on most plastic bags, pointing out
that they can be dangerous if
used as play things.
Of course, I don't suppose
taking one's own life could be
construed as "playing around"
could it? I would think that one
would have to be dead serious [no
pun intended] to take his own
life.

I BELIEVE THIS latest "how-
to" book is taking the "how-to"
books just too far. What we need
is a book on how to prevent such


how-to books from ever being
published, short of implying cen-
sorship.
Maybe if everyone would just
refuse to buy a book on such a
serious subject, it would turn the
trick. I'll bet Hemlock Society [the
publisher] would stop printing
the book in a second if they didn't
sell. And, have you ever heard of
a more fitting title for a firm
which would publish a book
coaching you through the suicide
act?
Humphry said he wrote the
book because, "People want to
know what to do when they're in
a tight spot."
Well, in days gone by, before
a past Supreme Court made it il-
legal to do so in certain spots,
people prayed when they got in
tough spots. That seems the least
painful and most effective of
man's choices.

I'M SURE THE 61-year-old
Humphry has no intentions of fol-


lowing any of the advice offered in
his book. I don't feel he is about
to commit suicide, even if he
doesn't believe in the alternative.
I believe he wrote the book just to
make money.
And some of our people have
trouble accepting the fact that
other people make a living out of
slaughtering animals for human
food or with using small ani-
mals to do research to save hu-
man lives or with destroying
the Buffo Toad, simply because
it's poisonous to man. It might be
cruel to the animal in either case.
But, it's "literature" to write
instructions telling a human be-
ing how he can end his life. A
man does this to make money
and he is a novelist. A man
thumps a cow in the head to kill
him to provide food for many men
and he is a perpetrator of cruelty.
A parting word: Humphry
writes that if you make your exit
in a hotel room, you should leave
a tip.

Where the Free Dogs Roam
Want to know why men hate to go to prison? It's because
they are locked up and not allowed to get out and around and
see different things and visit different places and visit with a va-
riety of people, especially those of the opposite sex. There are oth-
er things I'm certain, but those are the main ones.
Want to know why Duke, my black Lab dog and faithful com-
panion, hates to live with us? Well, they're the same reasons
mentioned above. You see, here in Port St. Joe, we have a "leash-
law" and I must keep Duke locked up in his 12 x 12 dog pen ex-
cept when I have time to take him out for a short walk every day
or so. Even with that, Duke paces back and forth, wanting to get
out and run and play. He's almost worn a hole in the concrete by
the front part of the fence.
Duke is a very unhappy dogl
Why in the world would you bring a dog into a situation like
that, knowing he wouldn't be able to get out and around, you
might ask. Good question, and I have a good answer, as you will
see.
One day about two years ago, a friend called me and told me
of Duke's plight. "There's a beautiful black Lab out here at our
house that someone has left or lost," she said. "Our neighbors
have been feeding and taking care of him, but they left yesterday
and now he's over at our house. We would keep him, but we're
not here enough to feed him regularly and take care of him. Do
you know anyone who would like to have a beautiful dog, Wen-
dell?" she asked. When I told her I didn't, she thanked me and
told me she was going to call the dog catcher and have them
come pick him up. We all know what the dog catcher does with
dogs he picks up, don't we?
To make a long story short, I probably saved Duke's life that
!day when I drove to Indian Pass and picked him up. It's for cer-
tain I spared his life a few weeks later when he tried to bite me;
but that's another story.
Duke has been living the life of a prisoner with us off and
'on for close to two years now and prison life is beginning to
take its toll on him. Several times lately, when we let him out to
use the bathroom (he doesn't have one in his dog house) he has
run off and wouldn't come back. The last time he was gone for
about two weeks and we searched high and low but couldn't find
him. When he did return home about a week ago, he was in dire
need of medical attention. His face, back, and ribs looked like he
had been run over by a cotton picker and there was a gaping cut,
about four inches long on his left rear leg that was almost to the
bone.
Dr. Tim Nelson's records will indicate that I'm telling the
truth. My cancelled check will verify that Duke was treated and
released. Duke doesn't carry any medical insurance.
The $78.00 I paid to have Duke's wounds patched are not
what's bothering me, though. I'm concerned about his. mental
well-being. Duke needs a home where the free doggies roam and
the deer and antelope play, or whatever. What Duke really needs
is a country home or a home with a big fenced yard. And Duke is
a fine dog. Let me tell you a little about him.
Duke is a black Lab. He appears to be a full-blood Labrador
and stands about two feet on four legs and about five feet on two
legs. He weighs about 70 pounds which is a little on the light
side, but please consider he's been off on a two-week loving and
fighting crusade. He's recovering nicely, though.
Dr. Nelson recommended that I have Duke neutered, but I
can't bring myself to have it done. I keep thinking if things were
the opposite, I feel certain Duke wouldn't let them do that to me.
I certainly hope not, anyway.
Duke is a beautiful dog and is very lovable and friendly. He
really is a wonderful pet and would make someone a great yard-
dog if he had some room to live and run.
Isn't there someone out there who needs a good dog? Anyone
interested can call 227-7304 any evening, or if you just want to
look Duke over, come by 818 Marvin Avenue, Port St. Joe, and
look in the dog pen out back.
If you come by and no one is home, please don't let Duke out
because I think he's getting that romantic look in his eye again!

Get Children Immunized


To the Editor:
Preventable diseases in pre-
school children ages 0-5 are on
the rise in the United States.
Many parents do not realize how
important it is to have their chil-
dren immunized to protect them
from serious diseases such as
measles, rubella, whooping
cough, and Haemophllus influen-
za type b (Hib).
To bring attention to this im-
portant preventive health meas-
ure, Governor Lawton Chiles has
proclaimed the week of Septem-
ber 21-29 as "Childhood Immuni-
zation Week" in Florida. During
this week, the HRS Gulf County
PUblic Health Unit will hold spe-
cial clinics during the evening to
vaccinate children.
With four out of 10 preschool
children not completely immu-
nized in Florida, it is vital that
parents are aware that immuniza-
tions should be started early. Par-
* ents with newborns should start
immunizations at two months of
age and stay on schedule
throughout the preschool years.
Parents of children under five
who are unsure if their child's im-
munizations are up to date
should contact their physician or
the HRS Gulf County Public

ters, Macy Shuler and May Bell
Horton, both of White City; two
sons, James Horton of White City
and Eddie Horton of Columbia,
Mississippi; 13 grandchildren; 36
great grandchildren, and seven
great great grandchildren.
Funeral services were held
Saturday in the White City Bap-
tist Church with the Rev. William
* Smith officiating; interment fol-
lowed in the Shady Grove Ceme-
tery near Grand Ridge.
Adams Funeral Home of
Blountstown was in charge.

Lucy Shaeffer
Lucy Chambliss Shaeffer, 78,
of Mexico Beach, died Wednesday
at her home.
A native of Pleasant View,
Tennessee, and resident of Talla-
hassee since 1955, she was a re-
tired staff member of the Florida
Board of Bar Examiners and a
member of St. Paul's United
Methodist Church.
Survivors include two sons,
Dr. Charlie W. Shaeffer of Palm
Springs, California, and James C.
Shaeffer of Savannah, Georgia; a
daughter, Carol S. Conner of Er-
winville, Louisiana; a sister, Mrs.
Ormond Felts of Nashville, Ten-
nessee; five grandchildren; and
four step grandchildren.
Services were held Saturday
at Tallahassee Memory Gardens.


Edith G. Reeder
Edith Grace Reeder, 90,
* passed away Sunday night, Sep-
tember 8, in Bay St. Joseph Care
Center following an extended ill-
ness. A native of Calhoun
County, she had been a resident
of Tampa for 70 years before com-
ing to Port St. Joe five years ago.
Survivors include her daugh-
ter, Juanita Lester of Wewahitch-
ka; three grandchildren; four
great grandchildren; and three
sisters, Judy Dykes and Opal Co-
vin, both of Blountstown, and Lu-
cille Hayes of Orlando.

Old Men Also
Have Nightmares
To the Editor:
In 1949 when I came to Mexi-
co Beach with my young family, I
could truly say that young men
see visions and old men dream
dreams. I am now the age that
my father was then and I am
wondering if it is turning into a
nightmare.
"For a town that we original
founders wrote into the Town
Charter: Section 36. Ad valorem
taxes...... "Provided, however, that
no ad valorem tax shall be levied
in excess of two (2) mills and then
only by referendum in which two
thirds (2/3) of the qualified free-
holders voting shall cast a ballot
in favor of said levy." We have
come a long way baby!!
I went to the City Hall of Mex-
ico Beach last Thursday night at
approximately 7:00 p.m. to at-
tend a public hearing that had
been scheduled for that night. I
was, expecting to see 50 to 100
cars crowded around the build-
ing, but to my surprise, the only
cars there were those of the town
officials and one other car. I be-
gan to wonder if I was there on
the wrong night. I entered the
building and in fact, the hearing
was about to begin. There were
very few people there.
The 'Trim" notices had gone
out about two weeks before with
a notice announcing that the ad
valorem tax would be increased
for next year by 26.67 percent.
Approximately 2000 residents
and property' owners received
these notices. Could it be that
people are just tired of complain-
ing without any apparent results?
With the economy as it is, most

Mike Todd, a recently returned member of the 710th
Unit of the Florida National Guard from Operation Desert
Storm in Saudi Arabia, came by the Active Styles Beauty
Salon last Thursday, to remove two yellow ribbons placed
there by the business owner, Debbie Butler, when the 710th
left. Butler is a life-time friend of Todd's and vowed the rib-
bons would not be removed until he could return and do it.


Card of Thanks
Our family would like to ex-
press a heart full of gratitude to-
wards all of our friends for their
tremendous support during
Gary's illness. Our church family
(United Pentecostal Church) was
so encouraging with their prayers
and strength. Jerry Kelley and
the elementary school were abso-
lutely great. The Wewa Medical
Center was so helpful. We could
not have made it without all the
support from the good people of
Wewa.
Thanks for your prayers,
calls, visits, and concern.
God bless each of you,
The Rev. Gary Carter Family

local governments in the area are
either holding the line on taxes or
even reducing them. Not Mexico
Beach, even with the .highest ad
valorem tax of any city in Bay
County, our City Council says
that we need 26.67 percent more
money next year.
Anyway, there is supposed to
be another public hearing before
the increase is official, but as of
this writing, the City Clerk
doesn't know when it will be. It
should be on the 23rd or 24th of
September. Hopefully, more will
express their opinion when it
does happen.

Bells to Ring Honoring Constitution


September 17, 1991, is the
204th anniversary of one of the
most significant events in history,
the signing of the United States
Constitution. On this date in
1787, 39 men signed their names
to a document which established
the world's first government of
the people, by the people and for
the people.
Today, the U.S. Constitution
is the world's oldest written in-
strument of national government.
It is the cornerstone of the Ameri-
can republic, a symbol of our na-
tional ideals of freedom, justice
and equal opportunity. To com-
memorate the historic moment
when the Constitution was
signed, the Commission on the

Property Appraiser Kesley
Colbert told the Port St. Joe Kiwa-
nis Club Tuesday, Gulf County
now has an assessed value of
$750 million worth of property
within its borders. About two
thirds of this property,- or $463
million, is on the tax rolls as tax-
able property.
Colbert said that in Gulf
County, approximately 38% of
properties are fully tax exempt,
due to Florida's exemption laws.
Of this, $83 million in property is
government owned, and exempt.
Schools and institutions own
$5.5 million worth of property
and pay no taxes on it. $121 mil-
lion in exemptions are due to ag-
ricultural purposes.
Colbert said the values of
property in Gulf and every other
county in Florida, are set by real
estate sales, using market value
as the yardstick for setting val-
ues. He pointed out that some-
times this is a difficult way to es-
tablish values, since in Gulf
County, in particular, land sales
are slow at the present time.
The Appraiser pointed out
that when property does sell, it
usually sells at around the price
for which it is appraised. 'This
makes it hard on the property
owner. After years of land values
going up and up, the sales are
now stagnant on the high side."
Colbert said the increases in
land values are tapering off. 'This
past year, we added only $12 mil-
lion to our rolls in increased
property values. Last year it was
more than double that amount.
This points to the slowdown in
building and improvements," he
said.
The Appraiser warned that
the Comprehensive Plans which
are now required of the county
and cities within the. county, "is
going to be an interesting chal-
lenge in the next couple of years."
Colbert pointed out that some
property in the Cape San Blas
area, for instance, which was
purchased with the ability to

Advetiin
Pay o
Mony6l


build up to four units per acre on
the shoreline, may be limited to
usage of maybe only one unit eve-
ry two acres. 'This drastically
changes the value of that proper-
ty," he said.
Here in Gulf County, Colbert
says his office inspects individual
property values every three years


in order to keep up with the state
requirement of market value as a
yardstick of assessment. He
pointed out that the Florida Leg-
islature determines the yardstick
which will be used in assessing
property and determining which
property will be assessed for taxa-
ble purposes.

i Cigarette Smoking

E -An Addiction

Hard to Break

By
..--'. *, ,'Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

If people "are what they eat" perhaps they can become "part of
what they read". It is hoped by repeating it often, the detrimental ef-
fect of smoking cigarettes will become more and more obvious.
I grew up working in tobacco. After handling the fresh tobacco
leaves all morning, we would go to lunch with 1/2 inch of black tar
that had to be removed before we could eat. This experience preju-
diced me against tobacco from an early age, and I was never tempt-
ed to try smoking. For those who do smoke, I realize it becomes an
addiction and one that Is very hard to break. I have helped patients
to stop smoking and we have various treatments that range from
cold turkey, nicotine chewing gum, hypnosis, acupuncture and ac-
upressure. Somewhere there is a treatment adjunct that can get the
smoker, who desires to stop smoking, off cigarettes.
Children need parents. Parents should include trying to stay in
good health as a part of their parental responsibilities. This in-
cludes eliminating as many things detrimental to health as possi-
ble. Cigarettes are very high In the list of things detrimental to
health.
The National Institute For Occupational Safety and Health has
concluded that secondhand smoke (smoke in the air from someone
else smoking) causes cancer and may cause heart disease. This ap-
plies to people in the workplace, but it also applies to children
whose parents smoke at home. If parents are unable to stop smok-
ing for improvement in their own general health, they should make
a concerted effort in the interest of their children's health.
Time and time again we have seen children with bronchitis and
asthma that have been improved tremendously when their parents
have decided to keep cigarette smoke out of the house. Last week at
the Medical Society meeting there was a discussion about what had
been perceived as a recent increase in cancer within the Bay and
Gulf county areas. This concern had been communicated to the
State Public Health Department. After analyzing statistics and mak-
ing comparisons the state officials reported that, contrary to the
perception, there had actually been a decrease in the number of
cancers locally except for lung cancer which has increased dra-
matically. Lung cancer rates are a direct indication of how many
cigarettes are being smoked.
Considering how difficult it is for a person to stop once smoking
has been started, parents should make great efforts to see that
their teenage children do not begin smoking.
Of course the effort to prevent teenaged smoking begins when
the teens are small children. The example of parents who do not
smoke is invaluable as a smoking deterrent. Small children find
smoke disagreeable and actually have to be exposed continuously
and repeatedly to tolerate it.
Without being preachy, parents can point out the advantages of
health and pocketbook from a smoke free environment If all these
efforts are made when the children are small, usually the teenager
will not become a smoker.

earth is only 6000 years old and
that dinosaurs have always lived

nition on all printed athletic pro-
grams and on billboards which
are displayed at the entrance to
each sports complex.
During the last three years
the major projects which have
been accomplished by the 100
Club have been the purchase of a


500 lb. ice machine, a commer-
cial grade video recorder, monitor
and editing machine for sport
evaluation, and a station wagon
for use by the athletic depart-
ment.
All contributions are tax
deductible, and go to support
young athletes in their respective
sports at Port St. Joe High
School. Anyone wishing to

In Korean

Exercise
U.S. forces in Korea recently
conducted a military exercise that
connected today's hyperwar tech-
nology to Korea's military and
cultural traditions, and a local
soldier played an important role.
Capt. Ron Daniels, 33, of Port
St. Joe, served as a logistics offi-
cer during exercise Ulchi Focus
Lens August 20-29. He is sta-
tioned at Yongstan Army Garri-
son in Seoul, and deployed to
Taegu, Korea for the exercise.
Daniels said of his part in the
exercise, "I was responsible for lo-
gistics operations and support for
participating U.S. forces."
The exercise is an annual
command post exercise staged by
the U.S. and Korean services to
test command, control and com-
munications capabilities and en-
hance combined readiness. It was
staged at several locations
throughout Korea and involved
about 6,000 U.S. military mem-
bers and civilian employees.
The name Ulchi Focus Lens
-is derived from one of Korea's
greatest military heroes, Gen. Ul-
chi Mun Duk, who developed a
winning tradition for the Korean
military during the Kokuryo King-
dom some 1,400 years ago. Ulchi
used brilliant strategies and high-
ly-trained soldiers to beat back
repeated attempts by the Chinese
empire to reconquer Korea.
During Ulchi Focus Lens mili-
tary wargamers simulated
ground, air and naval battles to
determine the command struc-
ture's ability to deter aggression
on the Korean peninsula. The ex-
ercise incorporated traditional
military skills with modem mili-
tary technology, including com-
puter scorekeepingg" to assess
what the forces do well and what

Joe course will be held October
14, 15, 16, and 17 from 6:00 to
9:00 p.m. EDT at Highland View
Elementary School with range
class on October 19. Port St. Joe
classes are limited to 150. Pre-
registration is required. Call 904-
265-3676 to register.
Florida's nationally recog-
nized hunter education course is
16-hours in duration and offered
free-of-charge. Attendance is re-
quired at all classes for a person
to receive a hunter education cer-
tificate.
Lt. Carl Wile, the GFC's hunt-
er education coordinator in
northwest Florida said, a new
state law that took effect June 1
requires all persons born after
June 1, 1975 who plan to hunt in
Florida to have successfully com-
pleted a hunter education course.
Exemptions-to this law apply
to any person hunting in his
county of residence on his home-
stead or the homestead of his
spouse or minor child, or to any
minor child hunting on the home-


"7~


stead of his parent.
Students receive instruction
in 12 different subjects such as
firearms safety, wildlife manage-
ment, bowhunting, muzzleload-
ing, survival and first aid to name
a few of the topics covered. More
than 30 states now have laws
mandating hunter education
training for young or beginning
hunters.
Anyone interested in either
the Wewahitchka or Port St. Joe
course is asked to pre-register by
calling Lt. Wile at the GFC's Pan-
ama City office at 904-265-3676.
The Gulf County Cooperative
Extension Service is working
cooperatively with the Florida
Game and Fresh Water Fish Com-
mission, to offer a Hunter Safety
Course at Wewahitchka High
School, starting September 16.

FETUS FACTS


If you are a typical mother,
don't ask where you went wrong
if your infant is a thumbsucker.
You are completely innocent.
Thumbsuckers are born, not
made. Medical pictures of the fe-
tus show that many babies are
already well within the habit of
inumbsucking by the seventh
month in the uterus. In fact, all
kinds of preparations are going
on before birth to get baby's
mouth ready for its complex
tasks.
Did you know that teeth are
already beginning to form in the
growing fetus just three months
after conception? Indeed, some
parts of the 20 primary teeth,
(also called baby teeth) can be


recognized at this early stage.
The rest of the permanent teeth
wait until right after birth to start
forming inside the gums.
Sometimes, shortly after
birth, parents or physicians may
notice little white spots on the
upper palate (roof of the mouth).
These are little keratinized struc-
tures (keratine is a tough, fi-
brous protein found in nails, hair
and teeth). They are not signifi-
cant and normally will disappear
in 10 to 14 days.

Prepared as a public service
to promote better dental health.

Sharks Have the Number but Lack Experience


There will be 48 young men who will trot
out on the football field in uniform for the
Sharks tomorrow night, but only five of them
have done it before with the expectation of
playing in the game.
'"We have a great deal of untried experience
in this year's football team," head coach Phil
Lanford said. "We have only five with varsity
game experience and only five seniors on the
entire squad, so it's easy to see that we are a
young and inexperienced team."
In spite of the youth and experience, the
Sharks make up for some of their deficit in
sheer numbers, enthusiasm and hard work,
the coach pointed out.
'We will have some veterans returning in
skill positions who can help us win games in
certain situations this year," Lanford said.
'There's Perez Davis who can anchor anyone's
line at 305 pounds. Perez started last year and
gives our line a solid foundation to build on."
The coach also named Calvin Pryor, the
Sharks' 250 pound senior fullback, who ran for
830-plus yards last year in 118 carries. Receiv-
er Tony Thomas is back for his senior year with
a year of experience in which he caught 20
passes for 315 yards. Defensively, Sandy
Quinn, a 170 pound safety will be on the field
again for his junior year.
"All of these men have valuable experience
and are capable of making the big plays which
can help us tremendously," Lanford said.
* DEPENDING ON YOUTH
The Sharks will field a team consisting of
14 Juniors, 19 sophomores and 10 freshmen as
they open the football season Friday night
against the Wewahitchka Gators.
Among the new players will be Jason Max-
well, a 163 pound junior. Maxwell was a back-
up to all-state quarterback Bill Ramsey last
year and will be the main signal caller this sea-
son.
Another highlight of the Shark team of last
year was the kicking game. Bobby Williams
drew the attention of the entire Panhandle as
he consistently drilled extra points and field
goals through the uprights. This year, sopho-
more Eric Monteiro will fill Williams' shoes in
that chore, as well as play wide receiver in
some occasions. Eric Ramsey, a 185 pound
lineman, will be doing the punting. Lanford
says fans should see very little change in the
quality of the Shark kicking game.
Starting off against the Gators Friday night
should be:
Tappan Gandy, a 198 pound junior at cen-
ter.
Junior, Jon Elliott, 178, at right guard.
Davy Young, 197 pound junior, at right


tackle.
At left tackle will be 219 pound Jeremy
Tull.
One year veteran Perez Davis, at 305
pounds will be at left tackle.
Randy Smith, at 173 pounds, will be a wide
receiver.
Devon Thomas, 158 pounds, Sarabia Tiller,
170 pounds and Calvin Pryor will be the Shark
running backs.
Most of the Sharks will be going both ways,
with two exceptions. Arion Nickson a 200


.-. '. -


junior, will come in at defensive end and Sandy
Quinn, at 176, will be a defensive back.
EXPECTANT SEASON
"I really don't know what to expect from the
season. We should have a good one if our
young players mature quickly and if our vete-
rans are successful at carrying the load they
will be faced with.".
"We're some smaller than last year, but
when you have a Perez Davis in your line, you
don't give up much in weight average."
'"We have 48 men on the squad, but on the


weeks we have a JV game, the varsity will dress
out only about 30."
Lanford said the Jefferson County Tigers
will probably be the team to beat in the Sharks'
conference this year. "'They are loaded and they
are big and we have to go over there for our
game," the coach said.
With that little bit of veteran experience and
that considerable enthusiasm, the Sharks will
start their season Friday night, at 8:00 p.m., in
Shark Stadium against their north Gulf County
rivals, the Wewahitchka Gators.

Gators Have 13 Veterans Returning This Year


Wewahitchka's Gators got off to a bad start
this football season, with the resignation of
their coach just about the time they should
start practicing for the football season.
Bo Bo Owens, a veteran former coach of the
Gators took over the helm, along with last
year's coach, Charles Fortner. The two, along
with assistants Don Rich, Paul Jett and Jim
McKnight have been frantically whipping their
charges into shape for the coming season.
"It's a good thing we have plenty of veterans
returning this year," Owens said. "Even so,
* we're about three weeks behind. The time spent
in spring practice has just been wasted be-
cause of the change in team leadership."
Owens said the Gators have a tough sched-
ule this year, "with the toughest one being to-
morrow night [against the Sharks]. There's also
Hilliard, the second game, which went 9-1 last
year. We start the season with two tough
games to deal with."
EXPERIENCE RETURNING
The Gators will have maturity and experi-
ence returning this year. "Out of a squad of 25
men, we have 17 seniors out for the team this
year. Thirteen of these 17 seniors played regu-
larly last year," Owens said. The interim coach
is depending on the experience of these 13 vet-
erans to make up for the interruption in their
preparation schedule.
The Gators lost the Panhandle's most prolif-
ic passer of last year, Shannon Miller, but his
back-up, Denny McGlon, will be at the signal-
calling post.
Running backs Marcus Vann and Mark
Jones will be returning for another year to give
experience to the Gator offense. Seniors Tony
Werden, 185, Cole Baxley, 195 and Emory
Home, 220, will be anchoring the Gator line.
Bill Fee will be returning for his second year at
center.
Other senior veterans of last year include:
Reco Addison, a 135 pound running back;
James Rouse, 155, running back; Byron Bar-
low, 150, flanker; Chris Ward, 190, tight end;
Andy Rutter, 140 pound end; Ike Hand, 270
pound guard; Phillip Goodwin 185 pound tack-


le; Mark Lester, at end, 155 pounds; Mike Yar-
rell, 150 pounds and Corwin Anderson, 160
pounds, both at end.
Rounding out the 25-man squad will be
sophomores, Robbie Lynn, 150; Andy Clayton,
145; Randal Bracewell, 150; Michael Morgan,
145; Eddie Loomis, 160; Beau Whitfield, 160;
Jeremy Pridgeon, 135, and Marty Bryant, 135.
"All of our schedule is tough this year, but
it looks like Bristol, Sneads and Apalachicola


will be the teams to beat in our district this
year," Owens said. Modesty prevented him
from adding Wewahitchka to that list.
STARTING LINE-UP
With two exceptions, the Gators will be
fielding an all senior experienced team Friday
night in their season opener in Port St. Joe
against the Sharks.
Starting offensively will be: Billy Fee, cen-
ter; Cole Baxley, right guard; Phillip Goodwin,

THERE IS ROOM
(Luke 14:21-24)
"AND the servant said, Lord it is done as Thou hast command-
ed and yet there is room" (Luke 14:22)
WHEN the host hear that those who had been invited turned
down the invitation, he hold his servants to invite others, people
who were considered by some not to be worth much. After they had
come, the host saw that there was still room for others and sent out
the servants to invite everyone who would come.
Not many people would turn down an invitation to the White
House. Yet some postpone accepting the invitation to eat of the Tree
of Life.
The Lord is "not willing that any should perish, but that all
should come to repentance" (2 Peter 3:9).
Won't you come today? There is still room for you.

Rev. Jerry Huft, Rector St. James and St. John's Churches


Basic Principle: Things Must

Die for New Growth to Appear


A basic principle in nature
which is often overlooked, or
avoided, is the destruction princi-
ple. By that I mean that some-
thing must be destroyed or dis-
placed before something new can
be created.
We don't like to see things die
or diminish so we can everything
we can to preserve. This often
backfires and the desired effect is
not achieved.
For instance wood cutters, in
the beginning of the industrial
revolution in Europe, resisted the
exploitation of coal fields. Later
the coal miners resisted the de-
velopment of petroleum and gas
exploration, and now may resist
the development of nuclear ener-
gy.
Yet as each new energy
source is popularized, it is clearly
demonstrated to be an improve-
"ment. over the energy source Jt -
.displaces.
S.Another example would be
the radical environmentalist
movement. By preserving the so
called old growth forest in the
name of conservation they are se-

Women's Day at

Philadelphia Bapt.
The members of Philadelphia
Primitive Baptist Church will be
celebrating their "Annual Wom-,
en's Day" on Sunday, September
15th. The observance will begin
with the church school at .9:30
a.m. Shirley Walker ,of Apalachi-
cola and of Shady Grove Primitive
Baptist Church of Tallahassee
will be the guest speaker for the
11:00 a.m. worship service, and
the 6:00 p.m. services will feature
a skit entitled 'The Sisterhood
Hour."
The women of the church
chose the topic MThe Tasks of
Christian Women" as this year's
theme, and will be attired in red
and white.
Everyone is cordially invited
to all services at the church locat-
ed on Avenue D.


verely limiting the number of spe-
cies which can live on the land.
By not permitting cutting or
burning, they make the forests
practically sterile. Yet after a for-
est fire, or after clear cutting,
countless life forms rebound and
the balance of nature is restored.
The point behind this is that
something must die before new
growth can appear. And this ap-
plies to spiritual matters as well
as it does to economics and ecolo-
gy.
There are people who would
keep the Church the way it is,
never allowing a new idea or a
new method to surface. Their
church will be buried with them.
But in the mean time they pre-
vent new life and new growth
from taking place.
As I look around, I can see
congregations which have learned
'to 'beopen, aid to enable the in-
novative thinkers. They are the
ones which are flourishing. They
are what I call the inclusive con-
gregations.
The other kind are the ex-
cluding congregations. They have
barriers which keep people at
arm's length. They continue to ex-
ist because of endowments and
old money, but they are like root-
bound plants in a pot that is too
small; they are leggy and pithy.
Put yourself and your congre-
gation in this picture. Are you
still trying to chop wood while
everyone else has progressed to
cleaner fuels? Are you living in an
awesome, silent forest, devoid of
life? Or have you cut and burned
the dead wood so that new light
and new life can abound?
Today might be a good day to
start clear cutting the forest of
your traditions so that the next
generation might see the light.

Whooping (
measles cases were in the pre-
school-aged children, most of
whom were unvaccinated. In 14
major outbreaks of measles, two
people died and 75 were hospital-
ized.
".A lot of people take it for
granted that we don't have a
problem with immunization any-
more. But we do, particularly
with measles and whooping
cough among preschool-aged
children," said Susan Lincicome,
HRS human services program
specialist. "Our goal is to vacci-
nate all preschool children by two
years of age."
As part of a statewide immu-
nization campaign, a new bro-
chure entitled "Baby Shots" de-
scribes the required vaccination
schedule for children and is avail-
able at 15 county extension offic-
es and will soon be available at
HRS County Public Health Units.
Agents affiliated with the Uni-
versity of Florida through the
Cooperative Extension Service
have worked with state health of-
ficials to prepare the brochure,
which is available in English and,
by the end of the year, Spanish.
During National Immuniza-
tion Week September 21-29, ex-
tension agents and program as-
sistants who give nutritional
advice to low-income homemak-
ers as part of the Expanded Food
and Nutrition Education Program
(EFNEP) will distribute 15,000
brochures to them and take part
in special events planned at HRS
county health units.
'We plan to distribute the
brochure to low-income pregnant
women or women with preschool-
ers whose children are at special
risk for needing immunizations,"
said Linda Cook, EFNEP coordi-
nator. "It's a lot cheaper to immu-
nize than to treat the real prob-
lems, such as whooping cough,
measles and other diseases that
surface without immunizations."
HRS officials say children of-
ten miss opportunities to get their
vaccinations, even when they're
in a health provider's office. Medi-
cal authorities say administering
more than one vaccine at a time
is safe and provides additional
protection.
"Kids often come into the doc-
tor's office for other reasons than
needing a shot," says Jack Snow-
den, HRS coordinator of field op-
erations for the immunization
program. "'If health providers just
check' each ;child's immunization
record and give the child all the
vaccines they can give at the
time, we'll go a long way toward
getting all of our children fully
Immunized."

between 15 and 18 months old,
according to the HRS survey.
Only 12 percent of the state's tod-
dlers were on schedule for needed
immunizations at 15 to 18
months of age. Children between
15 to 18 months of age were most
likely to be missing their fourth
dose of the DTP (diphtheria-
tetanus-pertussis) vaccine and
their third dose of the OPV (polio)
vaccine, Snowden said.
Beginning January 1, 1992,
all children in day care will be re-
quired to be vaccinated against
Haemophilus b (Hib), the leading

LAURA RAMSEY, Agent


cause of bacterial meningitis in
children. Most cases of Haemoph-
ilus b occur in children up to a
year old, who frequently contract
the highly contagious disease in
day care centers, Lincicome said.
In severe cases, Haemophilus
b is fatal, but it can also cause
hearing loss, mental retardation,
pneumonia, septic arthritis and
other diseases. Late last year, the


vaccine was approved to immu-
nize two-month-old infants
against Haemophilus b. Previous-
ly, children had to be 15 months
old to receive their first Haemoph-
ilus b (Hib) vaccine, Lincicome
said.
Since the Hib vaccine was
first used to protect toddlers in
1985, the number of Florida cas-
es has declined by 50 percent.


Four years ago, 398 children be-
came ill with Hib disease, but as
more children were vaccinated,
the number of cases steadily de-
creased and 191 children con--
tracted Hib disease last year.
'Vaccination against Hib'in
the younger age group will reduce
death and disabling complica-
tions in infants from this dis-
ease," Lincicome said.
