A Red Cross technician slips a needle into the arm of Mrs. of blood in the holiday blood drtvi held here during the after-
Jan Motley Tuesday afternoon, as she prepared to give a pint noon. Mrs. Motley was one of 30 to give blood.


Blood Drive Falls Short of Goal


The Red Cross Gulf Coast Region blood center collected 30
units of whole blood here in Port St. Joe Tuesday afternoon in
a push to replenish whole blood supplies prior to the holidays.
The amount of blood collected fell far short of the goal of 75
units set by Red Cross and local sponsors, disappointing local
supporters of the drive. Last year, during the Christmas sea-
son, Red Cross reported some 70 units collected during a one-
day drive. g
The drive was conducted during a time of dwindling whole
blood supplies when the need is usually greater than normal.


Various circumstances have resulted in reduced whole blood
supplies in the Gulf Coast Region headquarters, which fur-
nishes tested and safe blood supplies to hospitals in north
Florida and south Alabama, including the Port St. Joe and
Panama City hospitals.
The Red Cross laboratory tests, properly handles and
stores the whole blood for medical purposes. There is no cost
to the patient for the blood, but there is a service charge for
collecting, testing and storing the life-giving fluid.


SFHP Says-49 May Die On Highways


Florida Highway Patrol Direc-
tor Bobby R. Burkett released fa-
tality predictions for the upcom-
ing Christmas and New Year's
holiday periods this week.
Statistics reveal that as many
as 49 persons may die during
these two holiday periods. Twen-
ty-seven fatalities are predicted
during the 54-hour Christmas
holiday period which begins at
6:00 p.m., Monday, December 23,
and ends at midnight, Wednes-


day, December 25. An additional
22 persons may die in traffic
crashes during the 54-hour New
Year's holiday period beginning at
6:00 p.m., Monday, December 30
and. ending at midnight, Wednes-
day, January 1, 1992.
"Historically, half of all traffic
fatalities during these holiday pe-
riods are alcohol-related," stated
Director Burkett. "Unfortunately
last year, 52 percent of the
Christmas and New Year's holi-


day fatalities were alcohol-
related," added Burkett.
During both holiday periods,
the patrol will suspend normal of-
fice operations and commit all
available resources to the detec-
tion and apprehension of drunk-
en drivers. 'We are committed to
preventing as many alcohol-
related tragedies as possible from
occurring on Florida's highways,"
Burkett emphasized.


Director Burkett also reminds
motorists of the life-saving poten-
tial provided by wearing safety
belts during a holiday travel.
'We encourage all motorists to
adopt the 'smart' habit of buck-
ling up before beginning any trav-
el. The three seconds it takes to
secure your safety belt could
greatly reduce your chances of a
serious or fatal injury during a
traffic crash," concluded Burkett.


Early Morning High-Speed Chase Ends In Crash


A 19-year-old young man
narrowly escaped death by elec-
trocution early Saturday morn-
ing, when his 1987 Pontiac
clipped a utility pole in two at the
intersection of Niles Road and
Long Avenue, toppling electric
transmission lines onto the vehi-

Louis Edward Lindsey was
*, leading Port St. Joe Police on a
high speed chase through the res-
idential portion of the city at ap-
proximately 1:30 a.m., Saturday
morning, when the accident oc-


cured.
According to Police Chief Carl
Richter, officer Terry Carr noticed
Lindsey driving erratically near
Fifth and Garrison and decided to
pull him over. Lindsey failed to
stop and instead, speeded up,
leading police on a high speed
chase for nearly three miles
through city streets. On the last
leg of the chase, Lindsey turned
west on 16th Street and went to
Long Avenue, where he turned
south and headed for Niles Road
at 100-plus miles per hour, with


Two Cars Collide In

Mexico Beach Crash

Tuesday Afternoon

ternoon in a two car crash at the her late model Dodge with the
intersection of Highway 98 and jaws of life extrication tool by the

Information received from Po-
lice Chief Jeff Sellers, said Mrs.
Mary Wade was driving west on
Highway 98, when her car collid-
ed with a second vehicle, driven
by Raymond Gehrts, 80, of Mexi-
co Beach. Gehrts was said to
have been traveling east on High-
way 98 and made a left turn into
Fifth Street, colliding with the
Wade vehicle.
The Wade vehicle swerved af-
ter the impact, traveling into an
open field for some 50 feet before
coming to a stop. Gehrts' automo-
bile came to rest on the north
shoulder of Highway 98.
The accident happened at


unit, before being transported to
Gulf Pines Hospital by South Gulf
County Ambulance. She was later
transferred to a Panama City hos-
pital with possible broken bones
and internal injuries.
Gehrts' Cadillac and Wade's
vehicle both suffered extensive
damages in the crash. Neither
Gehrts, nor his wife, Alice, sus-
tained injuries.
The accident is being investi-
gated by officer Nelson Hall, who
was first on the scene, assisted
by officer Brad Hall. Chief Sellers
said no charges have been filed in
the crash at the present. 'The
matter is still being investigated,"
he reported.

Niles Road intersection, he lost
control of the car, rammed into a
utility pole, clipping it off about
three feet above the ground.
The mishap cut power off in
most of the residential section of
the city for a period of time.
By the time of the crash, Offi-
cer Carr had been joined in the
chase by Officers Troy Simmons
and Butch Arendt.


Lindsey was hospitalized
overnight for observation of inju-
ries and was released the next
day.
As a result of the three-mile
race, Lindsey faces charges of
reckless driving, driving while un-
der the influence, attempting to
elude police officers and other
charges which may be applied
when the investigation is com-
plete.


Gulf County Search and Rescue workers, remove Mrs. Mary
Wade from her damaged auto Tuesday afternoon.


Over


Waste Contract

Feel County Plans Will Interfere
With Present City Operations


With the Christmas Day holi-
day just around the comer, the
City Commission met before a
bare meeting room Tuesday
night, and took advantage of the
lull in citizens' concerns to dis-
cuss a couple of problems facing
the Board.
One of these concerns was
over a pending solid waste collec-
tion contract being considered by
the Gulf County Commission.
Mayor Frank Pate remarked to
his fellow Commissioners, 'This
deal is going to cause big prob-
lems to the City of Port St. Joe if
it is agreed to by the County."
Pate and the remainder of the
Commission are concerned about
the costs of the service, the infre-
qency of pick-up and especially
the fact that the regional compac-
tor on Industrial Road will be
closed if the contract is signed.
Pate told the Commissioners,
"I have talked with the prospec-
tive contractor, M&O Sanitation
of Panama City and he has told
me he would shut the compactor
down if he gets 'the contract."
This would cause the City prob-
lems because Port St. Joe collec-
tion trucks empty their loads at
the compactor, where it is com-
pressed and hauled to the incin-
erator in Panama City. Closing
the compactor would leave no
way to transport the solid waste
without making other arrange-
ments.
"It puts us in a position of
nearly having to contract our sol-
id waste collection to M&O also,"
Pate said. The Mayor and the
Commission expressed a concern
with the contracted rate and fre-
quency of pick-up offered. M&O
has offered a deal of $8.75 per
month for once a week pick-up,
with the County [or City] doing
the billing for the service. Pres-
ently, the City charges $8.00 per
month for twice a week pick-up
and does its own billing.
'The big rub comes in com-
mercial charges," said Commis-
sioner Bill Wood. "Their charge is
$115 per month for once a week
pick-up from an eight-yard con-
tainer. The City charges $75.00
per month and provides pick-up
five days a week. Some of the
stores downtown require five day
a week pick-up. Leaving the gar-
bage in place for a week in some
locations would cause a big prob-
lem."
Both Commissioners Johnny
Linton and Charles Tharpe
echoed the need for concern over
the pending problem. Tharpe
commented, "We need to have
some input to whatever the


County decides to do. We're part
of the County and what they do
will definitely affect us."
The County Commission is
meeting this afternoon, at 5:00
p.m., and will probably discuss
the pending solid waste collection
contract, as a part of that meet-
ing.
CABLE TV
The recurring disagreement
over cable TV service, as provided
by Gulf Cable TV,' also came up
for the Board to ponder. The big
question was whether or not the
Commission wished to pursue
the matter of the City installing a
service of its own.
Johnny Linton, who has pur-
sued the matter of quality cable
TV the hardest, remarked, "I
don't really want to, but if it's the
only way we can bring the people

THE STAR

PAGE TWO THURSDAY, DECEMBER 19,1991


In the Tar Bucket

This very same week of last year, the editorial on this page
was warning about the future danger of the Comprehensive Plan
required of every Florida county by Tallahassee. We had a quota-
tion by a local business leader, warning that the Plan was like
signing our soul away to the devil.
The proclamation has come to pass.
In spite of a year of negotiation with the Department of Com-
munity Affairs, there has been little give and take on the matters
to be decided upon before the Plan is accepted by DCA. There
has been some take: the county has had to "take" most of the
state demands in order to have the pact accepted. Of course, the
county was successful it appears, in negotiating the housing
density along the coastline from the suggested two units to three
per acre. The county Initially asked for four.
There has been some giving on the part of DCA on setback
lines, septic tank rules, etc., all of which were already required
by other state agencies-particularly the septic tank rules. There
wasn't much either side could do in this matter.
In other items, like land use throughout the county, road
and highway locations, requirements that infrastructure be in
place before any construction or development can begin in a cer-
tain location, location of residential, industrial and commercial
structures, etc, were virtually on demand. The Plan is more of a
restrictive zoning ordinance than a local zoning ordinance could
ever hope to be. Local ordinance requires that objections or ac-
ceptance of neighbors are required for changes to be made. In
the Plan, the state of Florida gets involved, regardless of what
the neighbors or the land owner thinks about the merit or de-
merit of any proposed changes. The changes can only be made
at certain times each year.
For years, we have operated on the premise that if a person
owns a piece of property, it gives him the right to do what he
wants with it. That is no longer so. We have jumped from the
honey bucket to the tar bucket. Your property will be used in the
manner and for the purpose, the state of Florida allows the lan-
, guage of the plan [when it is approved] to require you to.
Ain't that sumthin'!


Eye of A Needle
Someone made the observation at the last County Commis-
sion meeting, 'We don't want to get politics involved in it [num-
bering of property parcels and re-naming streets]". As it turns
out, we didn't have to let politics get involved in the matter. We
didn't let them get there, but they arrived, in full force, all on
their own accord.
It's really silly, if you can look at it from an unbiased view-
point, but it is a serious matter-to go changing street names-
too.
It's silly that we should get so involved with selecting a few
names to take the place like long-hallowed, history-tinged,
unique, personal and tradition-steeped names like First Street,
Second Street, Third Street, etc. What can be the sentiment here
with names like these? Go ahead and change enough of them to
respectable sounding names to get the job done and get on with
the program!
There's a lot more work to be done after this small, inconse-
quential decision is made. Changing a street name means
changing maps, deeds, records recorded in the Courthouse, etc.
You get the idea. It amounts to a lot more than just deciding on
a name. That's the easiest part, even though we are straining at
sending that camel through the eye of a needle.
Everybody is worried about the people of Highland View vot-
ing them out of office for changing their street names. The peo-
ple of Highland View are reasonable people. They're not going to
do that if it's necessary to change their street name. They may
vote some people out of office for pussy-footing around or for
other inequities in their records, but not for changing their
street name, if you let them know it is necessary and you're go-
ing to do it.
Neither are the people at St. Joe Beach and Beacon Hill. You
see, street names have to be changed there, too. Actually, more
have to be changed there than in Highland View.
It is no longer an "if' or a "maybe". Some street names must
be changed in order to allow the 911 system to function by the
computer-powered program the machine must use. In order to
function properly and accurately, there MUST be a different
name and/or number for every piece of property entered in the
electronic memory of the machine. The machine is a necessity
for the instantaneous response which is the selling point of the
911 system. If it were not for this feature, we had just as well
not put it in.
For this reason, the changes are necessary. Everyone under-
stands that now. Get to it!


Hunker Down with Kes .\. I


God, I Meant Give Me What I


Need, Not What I Asked For


\ Kesley
Colbert


Let me tell you something,
you'd better be careful when you
pray. Sixteen and a half years ago
I said, "God, you know I don't
know much about children and
this will be my firstborn, please
God, let it be a healthy one. And
Lord, I know you get lots of im-
portant requests but I sure would
like a son, and if possible I'd like
him to be like me."
God answered that prayer.
Boy howdy, did He answer it! I
think He went a little overboard
on the "just like me" part. My wife
throws up both hands, smiles,
and says it's God's wonderful
sense of humor. Mother spent fif-
teen minutes with Josh when he
was two and declared it to be Di-
vine Justice.


Strong-willed. That's what
the polite members of the family
say about him. Aunt Ruby Nell,
who is a little on the wacko side
herself, spent a day with Josh
back in his formative years. They
wrestled, boxed, hid behind
things and jumped on each other
in a surprise attack, tied one an-
other up with the vacuum cleaner
cord, barked at the cat....... you
know, normal things that I re-
member Aunt Ruby Nell doing
with me. That night at supper,
too exhausted to eat, she turned
to me, "He's the spitting image. I
tell you, the spitting image."
"Now wait a minute. I wasn't
that stubborn or set in my ways.
And surely I didn't talk that
much. No way could I a'had that
kind'a energy! And questions, will
he ever-"
Aunt Ruby Nell put her hand
on my arm, stopping me in mid
sentence. "Kes, son-n-n, those
-acorns don't fall far from the


tree."
Raising two children is by far
the toughest job I've ever had.
The fact that one of them, I ad-
mit, could be just a teeny bit like
me hasn't made it any easier.
Josh used to get mad and pooch
out that bottom lip. I'd say, "Son,
that ain't no pooch job. Why, one
time when I was about your age I
got mad while we were eating
supper I pooched all the way
across the kitchen, I could've
gone farther but I hit the wood
stove. Those Ripley folks sent a
guy down with a measuring tape.
Look, I've still got a scar right
here."
"Aw, Daddy." Both boys
would climb up into my lap,
laughing, while they closely in-
spected my lower lip. Did I tell
you that raising two boys was
also the most fun job I ever had?
"How big was your kitchen?"
"Son, you could have turned
the Titanic around in that room."


"Daddy, what kept the wood
stove from burning up?"
"How big is a Ti-tan-tic?"
When Josh was four weeks
old, I'd ease him down into that
crib. "Son, when you get to be
fourteen and fifteen and your
friends start coming over and you
have new interests as you're dis-
covering this wonderful world -
are we still going to be best bud-
dies?"
I'd lean down real close but
he didn't say nothing. "And son,
when you're sixteen and get those
driver's license and think you're
grown and I won't let you go quite'
as much as you want to are we
still going to be best buddies?"
When he was four I was still
tucking him in with, "Son, when
you get fourteen and fifteen and
all your friends want to
go..........are we still going to be
best buddies?"
'Yes, sir."

My Suggestion ofRoast Goose for Christmas Dinner Doesn't Fly


BY THIS TIME next week
we'll all be meeting at the solid
waste compactor with a load of
Christmas wrappings and holiday
trappings which have already
trapped all they are going to this
Christmas season.
It'll all be over except for the
bill-paying and the after-
Christmas sales. I can't help you
with the first "all over but"; how-
ever I can help you with the sec-
ond, if all the smarter merchants
of Port St. Joe will advertise their
after-Christmas bargains in the
hallowed columns of this marve-
lous newspaper.
I can tell Christmas is getting
close without reading the dateline
at the top of this page. Already I
have been the target [and the ini-
tiator] of a few "Merry Christmas"
wishes and a sprinkling of "Have
A Merry Christmas"I Along with
the crisp weather we were prom-
ised for this past week end, it's
genuinely beginning to look and
feel like the most waited-for time


V


of the year.
I HAVE TO ADMIT, I like
Christmas. Naturally, the reason
for the season is important to me.
It's the time of the Christ Child's
birth. It's the birthday of the
King! That's important to me and
my life values and it should be
important to yours. If it isn't this
Christmas, you still have time to
make it an important event in
your life too, before Christmas
swings around.
I admit that I like Christmas
for other reasons, too. I'm not
ashamed of the fact that the col-
or, the music, the hustle and


By Wesley Ramsey


bustle of gift buying, wrapping
and placing under the tree is im-
portant to me. Even if it's only a
new pair of underwear or a box of
handkerchiefs, it's important to
me.
There's no time of the year
which generates such prolific soft
feelings of one human being for
another. After a full year of fuss-
ing, fuming, fighting and disa-
greeing, we, need Christmas to
straighten out our attitude at
least one day a year. Were it not
for this aspect of Christmas, we
might all go stark-raving mad.
IN OUR FAMILY we have a


five-year-old to keep one of the
spirits of Christmas alive. I'm
sure there is enough .left in the
season to keep it humming, even
for those who do not have a five-
year-old in their family. Be as-
sured, though, that a five-year-
old gives a completely different di-
mension to Christmas.
There is pleasure most of us
adults can't understand for a
five-year-old to get a pair of black
rubber boots to wear with his
Santa Claus suit in a school play.
Every Christmas tree is just the
epitome of Christmas accouter-
ments. Every wrapped box is a
treasure mine of expectation and
wonder. It creates ants in the
pants of a five-year-old to see a
package of mysterious content.
And, of course, if he or she is
someone else's five-year-old, you
don't have the chore of getting up
at 4:00 a.m., on Christmas morn-
ing and when it's time for that
Christmas afternoon nap, you
can send the little wild Indian, or


the football player, or the big
game hunter, the astronaut, or
the race car driver, home to con-
tinue his pursuits with his
Christmas loot.

I PUT MY Christmas tree up
Saturday morning and started
the work of getting it decorated.
The decoration part of the pro-
gram is still probably in progress.
The big decision is to choose
which ornaments will go on the
tree.
You see, we have boxes, and
boxes, and boxes of Christmas
tree decorations at our house. For
the 45 years in which we have
been married, Frenchie has been
crazy about hand-made and unu-
sual Christmas ornaments. I sup-
pose we still have the first one
she ever acquired.
When it comes tree and
house decorating time, there are
boxes which come out from the
storage place under the stairs.
There are boxes which come out


of the storage places in the attic.
There are boxes which come out
of the storage room behind the
carport.
We have no shortage of
Christmas decorations at our
house. The only shortage we have
is in energy to get them put up.
That will come along in bits and
spurts between now and Wednes-
day of next week.
I DON'T KNOW what we will
have for Christmas dinner. The
other day I suggested to Frenchie,
"Let's have something different for
dinner this Christmas day."
'What would you suggest,"
asked the whipper-upper of some
of the most delicious dinners in
Florida.
I ruminated for a moment
and finally blurted, "Let's have a
roast goose!"
"Fine, you get the goose and
you roast it," she said.
I guess that roasted that
goose!

Phantry

Dear Santa Claus

Mr. Santa Claus
Rural Route
North Pole, USA 99998
Dear Santa Claus:
It's been a long time since I've written to you and I'm sorry.
At least you haven't had to read my long list of things I want for
Christmas. Maybe that's some consolation to you.
This year I vowed it would be different because I find that I'm
losing the "Christmas Spirit" and heaven forbid I do that. It's
really been bothering me, Santa, this thing about losing the
Christmas Spirit because things would be pretty boring without
it.
One reason I'm not in the "Spirit" yet is because it's been un-
seasonably warm so far this winter. Also, I find it hard to sing
Jingle Bells and Winter Wonderland while I'm riding down the
street with the air conditioner wide open.
The main thing that has happened, however, is my kids are

Couple Charged With Sales Tax Fraud


A Port St. Joe couple were
caught up in a state-wide pro-
gram named Operation High Pro-
file, conducted late last week in
an attempt to crack down on al-
leged statewide sales tax fraud
cases, according to the Florida
Department of Revenue.
Harmon Ben and Ruth Hen-
derson, operators of Henderson's
Restaurant on Monument Ave-
nue, were victims along with 23
other people, statewide, in the op-
eration which were said to have
been arrested for theft of more
than $800,000 in sales tax collec-


Lions. The Henderson's were said
to have collected some $12,565 in
sales taxes, without reporting the
collections to the state. Penalties.
interest and investigative costs
boosted the Henderson's liability
to some $22,000 according to
DOR.
The couple was charged with
failure to report the tax collec-
tions since the business opened
in May 1989. One sales tax re-
turn was said to have been filed
during this period of time.
While some of those accosted

by the DOR were arrested and
jailed, the Hendersons were not
arrested.
Henderson said the DOR con-
tacted him about the sales tax de-
linquencies "about three weeks
ago, telling me not to worry, that
it could be worked out. Then they
came in here Friday morning with
their warrants." the restaurant
operator said.
'"The income they were citing
was for income from a wholesale
produce business we have operat-


ed and there is no sales tax col-
lectible on produce sales," Hen-
derson said.
Henderson said he felt "every-
thing will be worked out all right
as soon as we get together with
the state's attorney."
A DOR study shows that an
estimated $140 million is lost
each year in sales tax collections
through fraud. The current state
budget situation has prompted
the state to conduct the round-up
of suspected sales tax fraud.

Blackhawk Copter Visits Schools


The United States Customs
Service Aviation Operation
Branch, Jacksonville presented
Project Out Reach Just Say No
to Drugs in Port St. Joe on
Wednesday, December 11. Pres-
entations were made to students
and school personnel at Port St.
Joe Elementary, Highland View
Elementary, and seventh and
eighth graders at Port St. Joe
Junior-Senior High School.
The team, consisting of Pilot
Jim Boutte, Co-pilot Chuck Bour-
quardez, and Air Officer Ray Var-
rasse, presented a very informa-
tive program about their
involvement in preventing the
flow of illegal drugs into the Unit-
ed States. On display at each
school was their UH-60 Black-
hawk Helicopter, weapons used
by the officers as well as protec-
tive gear worn by them. Students
were encouraged to avoid the use
of illegal drugs, stay in school, set
goals for themselves, and strive to
achieve them.
Deputy Otto Cook of the Gulf


County Sheriffs Department and
his K-9 partner, Jake, demon-
strated how drugs are detected.
Different drug paraphernalia was
exhibited and discussed.
As the helicopter arrived at
each location, the passengers
were greeted by cheering stu-
dents who were surprised to see
school personnel disembarking
the craft. Participants in the day's
program were Catherine Barfield,
David Bidwell, Gail Blackmon,
Lois Byrd, Lt. Jeff Duval, Chris
Earley, Barbara Eells, Mack Eu-
banks, James Hanlon, Sheriff Al
Harrison, Gerald Lewter, Duane
McFarland, Charlotte Pierce, Wes
Taylor, Walter Wilder, and Bren-
da Wood.


The program was sponsored
by the local Just Say No to Drugs

HAVE YOU A DEPENDABLE
PERSONAL PHARMACY?
kw7 Everybody should have one personal pharmacy which
they can call their own. They should be sure to get all their V
prescriptions filled only in their own personal pharmacy.
There are important reasons for this.
E- I
Every pharmacy records each prescription they fill. Some
people are allergic to certain drugs. Others may be getting
prescriptions from more than one Doctor and the medicines
W may conflict with each other. When one parmacy fills all
your prescriptions, the record file contains all the
information needed for the pharmacist to help protect you.
* If you will permit us to be your personal pharmacy your *
prescription record will always be completely available.

Sharks Calm Tornadoes 78-57


SHARKS 78, BAY HI 57
The Sharks bombed the Bay
High Tornadoes in the Port St.
Joe home opener Friday night,
whipping the Tornadoes soundly,
78-57.
The Sharks used an aggres-
sive, running offense, and a tena-
cious, swarming defense to take
the sting out of the Tornado
punch. The quick, ball-hawking-
defense of Vince Addison and the
accurate soft touch free throw
shooting of Alaric Allen got the
Sharks off to a four point margin
in the first quarter. The game
tempo was kept up by the entire
team for the full four quarters as
the Sharks wore down the Torna-
does.
The Shark attack came most-
ly from long distance in the first
half, with Jason Maxwell getting
two three-pointers and Alaric Al-
len and Antwione Allen both hit
one.
Alaric Allen was the high-
point man for the Sharks with his
eight of nine free throw attempts
and six field goals for a total of 21
points. Arion Nickson added 14
and Letron Alexander scored 10,
to pace the Shark attack.
Jason Kovaleski was the only
Tornado scoring in double fig-
ures, with 11 points.
The game was a foul-filled
contest, with both coaches sub-
stituting freely to keep their men

book is distributed to 15,000
high schools, colleges, universi-
ties, and public libraries through-
out the country.

Dental Health

FRANK D. MAY, D.M.D.

A BETTER WAY TO CLEAN TEETH


Dental plaque is a sticky, in-
visible film that contains bacte-
ria and is the major cause of
tooth decay and periodontal
(gum) disease. The trouble with
removing plaque from teeth is
that you can't see it easily with
the naked eye. But there is a
way to make the "invisible'"
show up. Chew a disclosing tab-
let before brushing your teeth
and it will leave a red stain
where the plaque is on your
teeth. Remove all the red stain
and you'll remove the plaque.
Here's a five step procedure to
use before going to bed each
night if you want healthy teeth.
1. Make the plaque visible
by chewing a disclosing tablet.
2. Brush your teeth; using a
dry, soft-bristle brush without
toothpaste. Place the bristles at


a 45 degree angle pointing to-
ward the gum. Move the brush
back and forth with short
strokes. Clean chewing surfaces
with short, scrubbing strokes.
3. Use unwaxed dental floss
to clean between the teeth and
under the gum edges.
4. Rinse and examine the
teeth for any remaining red
areas.
5. Brush again using tooth-
paste, concentrating on the
areas that still contain plaque.
For best results, don't eat again
before going to bed.

Prepared as a public service
to promote better dental health.

. Public Hunt Lands Dwindling


FGFWF Official Tells Rotary Club


HOW MUCH HEAT DOES


A HEAT-PUMP PUMP?


Florida's resident hunters are
a declining species in themselves,
Lt. Stan Kirkland with the Florida
Game and Fish Commission told
the Rotary Club last Thursday.
The loss in hunter population,
naturally spells a reduction in
hunting and game management
fees.
Kirkland said the Florida

Game Commission uses most of
the revenue from game manage-
ment fees to divide up between
land owners to pay them for use
of their lands. "In recent years,
the land owners were able to
lease their properties to private
groups at a higher rate than the
state is able to pay through the
sales of management permits.
This has resulted in the loss of
several game management areas
throughout the state, he said.
The most popular game man-
agement in this vicinity was the
G. U. Parker tract north of Wewa-
hitchka. 'This management area
has been taken off our list of
places to hunt," Kirkland said. "It
was a prolific game production
area and its loss has hurt hunt-
ing in the Panhandle."
The hunting population has
decreased to about three percent
of the state's population at any
given time.
SPECIFIC TARGETS
Talking about specific game
animals and rules for hunting
them, LL Kirkland said discus-
sions are now being held to make
the black bear an endangered an-
imal in Florida, which would pro-
hibit the taking of the species by
hunters. "There are only four
places you can hunt black bear
now," the speaker said. 'These
are the Osceola and Apalachicola
National Forests and Baker and
Columbia counties. The two
county areas are private proper-


ty."
The use of steel shot for
hunting waterfowl is now re-
quired. "Steel shot take some get-
ting used to," Kirkland said.
'They have different characteris-
tics than lead shot, but making
allowances for the steel, make
them just as effective if used
properly."
The shot material was
changed when it was found that
bottom-feeding waterfowl was
picking up the lead shot, which
severely harmed or killed the bird
because of lead's toxic properties.
Waterfowl season was
changed and shortened because
of a reduction of breeding
grounds in northern states. There
are now only 30 days in the sea-
son here in northwest Florida.
The commission is also look-
ing at a policy on the Use of deer
dogs. 'We're not thinking of elimi-
nating the use of deer dogs, but
we're coming up with some rules
as to hoiw they can be used in giv-
en circumstances," Lt. Kirkland
said.
Changes in the deer season
were made after input from pub-
lic hearings. Since deer season
comes when male deer are trot-
ting about in search of a doe, par-
tially oblivious to hunters, it was
decided to place a break in the
season to give the romantic buck
at least a fighting chance.

The fall and winter seasons
are excellent times to make some
changes in your landscape. The
weather is ideal for working in
the yard and we normally receive
adequate rain fall to help newly
planted trees and shrubs become
established before they are ex-
posed to high summer tempera-
tures.
When selecting plants for the
landscape, consider year-round
effect rather than basing your se-
lection on just one factor such as
growth rate or flower color. Many
trees offer seasonal effects such
as flowers in the spring, interest-
ing leaf shapes and shade pat-
terns in summer, fruit and foliage
color in fall and interesting
branching habits or bark charac-
teristics during winter. At this
time of year, leaves of some spe-
cies of trees have a beautiful dis-
play of all color. More often than
not, fall color is associated with
the maples, birches, aspens,
beeches and some oaks. In North
America, the most brilliant dis-
plays of fall color are in South-
eastern Canada, the Northeastern
United States, and in certain oth-
er higher altitudes. The further
south one goes, the less brilliant
is the color display.
However, there are several
trees grown in the southern area
that have an outstanding display
of autumn color. Crape myrtle is
a plant of unusual delight. It of-
fers beautiful plant form during
the winter months, large spikes of
showy flowers during summer,
and gives one of the most colorful
displays of fall foliage that can be
found in the south. Leaf color of
crape myrtle in fall varies from
light yellow to dark red.
Another small tree with beau-
tiful autumn color is the Chirese
tallow tree (popcorn tree). The
most brilliant reds can be seen on
leaves of this tree at the present
time. After the leaves fall, the
milk white seed adhere to the
plant well into winter. The Chi-
nese use the waxy coating around
the seeds for making candles and
soap.
Sweet gum trees also offer fall
color as the leaves turn yellow to
scarlet to deep red in fall. If given
plenty of space in which to devel-
op, few other trees can approach
it in symmetrical beauty. The pe-
culiar, ball-shaped fruit remains
on the tree for a long time after
the leaves fall and can present a
problem if they fall on areas that

CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM

The Importance of

Well Child Care

B 1 : Prevention Is Best Way

-. ElzbehBy
,' \ Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

'The above title takes us back to the old subject of prevention.
When a child is taken to the doctor for regular examinations and
immunizations, problems can often be prevented by early detection
and treatment.
The concept of preventive medicine is accepted by the federal
government in the Medicaid program. In addition to paying for care
when the child is sick, Medicaid will also pay for certain age specific
examinations because this will, in the long run be cost effective and
save money. This says nothing about the increased enjoyment and
reward for living in better health.
The state of Florida has further decreed that any health insu-
rance company licensed to operate in Florida offering group plans
*must offer well child care to its enrollees.
We have printed a commonly accepted schedule of routine well
child care before, but here it is again. There are reasons for each of
the visits outlined. Your doctor can work with you to anticipate
problems and often prevent problems if you take your children for
regular well child care.

THE STAR. PORT ST. JOE. FL THURSDAY, DEC. 19, 1991


News from Wewahitchka Elementary
By Linda Whitfield


Student of the Week
Melissa Myers, the 11-year-
old daughter of Valeria and Ear-
nest Myers, is the student of the
week. Melissa is in the fourth
grade classroom of Mr. James
Rouse. She cites spelling as her


favorite subject in school and
wants to be a teacher when she
grows up. Melissa admires a for-
mer teacher of hers, Miss Joyce
Quinn, very much. Her favorite
TV show is The Bill Cosby Show.
She would like to visit Alabama.


Melissa has this to say about her-
self: "I am an honor student. I
work very hard. I try to do my
best in everything I do. School is
fun and I like it very much."
We're glad Melissa is at our
school.
A Christmas Celebration
A Play By First Grades
On Thursday, December 19,
at 8:30 all three first grade class-
rooms will present the play A
Christmas Celebration. The public
is cordially invited to attend.
What a nice way to end the first
semester
Third Grade Classes Go to
Marianna Caverns
The third grades have fin-
ished their unit on science on
"Rocks and Fossils" and will now
go on a field trip to the Marianna
Caverns. Even though December
is a real busy month, it is nice to
have a change of pace with an
outing. After the cavern tour, and
the walk through the beautiful
forest, the classes had a picnic on
the grounds. Our appreciation is
extended to all the parents who
chaperoned our trip.
Mr. Kelley Goes to Tallahassee
This kind of sounds like Mr.
Smith Goes to Washington, but
the purpose is altogether differ-
ent. Mr. Kelley, Mrs. Patsy Lister,
Dr. and Mrs. Bidwell have been
working really hard on writing a
technology grant sponsored by
the state of Florida. If, and it is d
big if, we receive it, our school
will receive over a quarter of a
million dollars. Mr. Kelley hand
delivered it and we hope the luck
of his Irish heritage is with him.
Think of all the technology we
could buy with that much lootl
Faculty and Staff Christmas
Party at Tyree's Restaurant
On Tuesday night, December
10, the faculty and staff at WES
gathered at our own Tyree's Res-
taurant on Highway 71 for our
annual Christmas dinner. Guests
had a choice a seafood buffet or
rib eye steak, salad bar, tea, cof-
fee, and cheesecake for dessert.
During the evening, gifts of ap-
preciation were presented to vari-
ous members of the staff. In addi-
tion, 10 door prizes were given. It
was so much fun.'

If I Were One of Santa's Elves...
By Andrea Marquez
Grade 3
"If I were one of Santa's elves,
I would go and give the little kids
a toy and I would get some toys
for me. My mom and dad will not
know that I am one of Santa's
elves. My mom is very proud of
me because I am going to tell
here what I did. She said that I
had to be her helper and I said,
oh, oh. I am in trouble."
P.O.P.S. Is Now At WES

Counselor at WES, has an-
nounced a new program that will
begin at WES after Christmas. It
is called P.O.P.S., which stands
for Power of Positive Students.
(This program has been at the
High School for several years
since it was started with Mr. S.M.
Eubanks.) This program will take
the place of our Student Council.
All fourth, fifth, and sixth graders
are welcome to join. One of their
goals is school and community
service. The applications will be
sent home after the Christmas
holidays.

Home for the Holidays
Several on our staff enjoyed
having their college son or daugh-
ter home for the Thanksgiving
holidays. It was a nice break for
them, but with finals looming,
one couldn't relax completely.
This next break should be a good
one.

*Inspect your own car now and
then. It doesn't take a profes-
sional mechanic to check that
all lights are working. Test turn
signals and backup lights as
well as headlights on both high
and low beams.
*Do you pump the gas pedal
and gun the engine to warm it
up faster? No need. The choke
and fast idle warm up the en-
gine automatically, and waste
less gas, too.
*Emergency equipment in the
trunk should include a flash-
light, flares, matches, a few ba-
sic tools, rags and wire. In
snow areas, add a shovel and
scraper, warm clothes, blan-
kets and non-perishable food.
*When the oil pressure light
glows or the gauge moves
down, oil pressure may be too
low for continued safe opera-
tion of the engine. If oil quality
is okay, have the engine
checked by a mechanic.
*Your car's working hard. At 55
miles per hour, each spark plug
in a V-8 engine fires 525 times
per minute!
Happy holidays to everyone
