FIFTY-FOURTH YEAR. NUMBER 18
PORT ST. JOE. FLORIDA 32456 THURSDAY, JANUARY 2,1992
... A Year of Anxiety and Drama
The year of 1991 presented Gulf County
with more tragedy than its citizens are accus-
tomed to experiencing in a single 365-day pe-
riod of time.
Three traffic fatalities, two murders and an
armed robbery and kidnapping shocked the
residents of the county as the acts set a
record of sorts for the county. It was an unu-
sual year for two people, from the same neigh-
borhood, to be murdered in the county. Cou-
pled with the three traffic fatalities and the
armed robbery, it was a dramatic year, which
left a lot, of grief behind as it faded into wher-
ever old years fade into.
Curtis Addison was shot by his wife,
Elaine, in a family dispute and Kelvin Cherry
was stabbed, fatally, and John Henry Robin-
son was charged with the killing. Addison was
ruled not guilty in Circuit Court in the killing
of her husband. Robinson has not come to'
The traffic fatalities all occurred during the
first half of the year, with Albert Bass of We-
wahitchka meeting death in an accident on
January 23; Jody Evans of Port St. Joe dying
in a crash on March 31 and Robert George
Kinney of Wewahitchka, suffering fatal inju-
ries in an April 14 collision.
Another tragedy was the death of Edward
Mobley, 67, who was killed by a bolt of light-
ning while fishing from his boat in St. Joseph
Bay. Mobley, a visitor here in Port St. Joe at
the time of his death, was one of three per-
sons who met death by lightning strikes with-
in a 50-mile radius of Port St. Joe this past
There was the tragedy of two Wewahitchka
brothers meeting death by drowning during
the past year. Michael Dorsey fell from a
shrimp boat he was moving from Apalachicola
to Wewahitchka in January of last year and
drowned in the Apalachicola River. In May,
his brother, Gene Dorsey was catfishing in the
Dead Lakes and apparently fell from his boat
and drowned in theLakes. -....

received recognition this past year was Mrs.

into a new war-the war in the Persian Gulf-
which called numerous young men and wom-
en from the county to duty in that desert re-
gion of the world.
Yellow ribbons were the banner of ex-
pressed support and American flags flew eve-
rywhere as the war progressed into the early
summer. Many men and women from Gulf
County were caught up in the war when the
710th Group of the National Guard, stationed
in Apalachicola, was mobilized and sent to
Saudi Arabia in the first month of the year.
Families were separated and lives were in-
terrupted as the mobilization continued, but
in the early fall of the year, the fighting men
and women came marching home again, to a
relieved and happy reunion of families and
friends which greeted the returning warriors.
PEOPLE MAKE THE NEWS
Several people marked important mile-
stones in their lives here in Gulf County dur-
ing the year of 1991.
J. C. Belin, after spending most of his
working life as an executive with the St. Joe
Paper Company, retired from some of his re-
sponsibilities after serving as the Chief Execu-
tive Officer of the nation-wide corporation,
since the death of Edward Ball, long-time
leader of the firm, several years ago.
Belin, who has lived in Port St. Joe since
his early childhood, is still chairman of the ex-
ecutive committee of the St. Joe Paper Compa-
Robert Nedley, a native of Port St. Joe,
who, like Belin, has worked his way up in the
management of St. Joe Paper, was named
President and Chief Operations official of the
company during the past year. Nedley had
been promoted to Vice-President several years
Another Gulf County resident who marked
a milestone in her life this past year, was Mrs.
Edna Patrick Hardy, who had served the Over-
street Post Office for 74 years. The office was
closed down by the U.S. Postal Service in No-
vember, with Mrs. Hardy still at the helm.
COMMISSIONER MAKES NEWS
County Commission Don Parker was re-
moved from his office by Governor Lawton
Chiles in April, after Parker was charged with
accepting unemployment payments illegally.
Parker claimed he had the approval of unem-
ployment office officials to receive the pay-
ments, but was judged guilty, nevertheless,
and was permanently removed from office by
Al Ray, who had lost the post to Parker in
the regular election by a tie vote guessing
game, was named to succeed Parker by the
Governor. Both candidates had received the
same number of votes in the election, which
was decided by each guessing a number clos-
est to a number sealed in a box. Parker's
guess was closer.
BRIDGES MADE THE NEWS

secure a highrise bridge to replace an old, un-

dependable draw span at Highland View for
many years, and a highrise at Overstreet for
even longer, the year 1991 saw the county lit-
erally overrun with highrise bridges, complete
and under construction.
The bridge at Highland View, deemed to be
the most needed by local interests, was finally
started in early October. The state had ruled
that the Overstreet and White City spans were
more important, as escape routes for coastal
residents, and had moved them up in priority.
The White City bridge was completed and,
opened to traffic on September 23, after near-
ly two years of construction. The old bridge
was completely torn down and removed out of
the way three days later.
OTHER IMPORTANT HAPPENINGS
Several other important happenings in the
county didn't make much noise at the time,
but are destined to have an important Impact
on the county in the future.
St. Joe Natural Gas Company, here in Port
St. Joe, started work on laying an additional
eight-inch natural gas supply line to Port St.
Joe, to provide more of the cheap, dependable
fuel for industry along the coast. The project
is still in progress at this writing, but is near-
Another important happening, which took
only a vote of a governing body to decide, was
of immense importance to the county. That
"happening" was the decision made by the

rather than hiring the Superintendent to fill
Wewahitchka resident, Grady Booth, had
asked the Board to allow the question to go to
a referendum vote, but the Board turned
down his request.
Solid waste problems continued to take
the limelight in the county, just as it has for
the past four or five years. It is still a problem
of major proportions to the county and its
County Commission, and more than likely
won't go away at any foreseeable time in the

PAGE TWO THURSDAY, JANUARY 2,1992
To be perfectly candid with you, we were Just a little cool to-
ward the candidacy of Vince Bruner, when he ran for the office
of State Senator from our district. We thought he was a little too
brash and maybe not quite mature enough for such a monu-
mental task as being a state senator from a district as far-flung
and with the diversified interests our district has.
Despite the fact we hadn't gone all out and supported his
candidacy, we were at least satisfied with the fact that he hit the
ground running, when he was elected. He didn't let any grass
grow under his feet and fought like a young Tiger [which he is]
for the interest of the people in his district.
The young legislator must have made a good impression on
the professionals up in Tallahassee, too, since he drew member-
ship and even chairmanship of some pretty important commit-
tees, the first time out of the gate.
We were pleased with the fact that he wasn't afraid to speak
up, even though he did make some mistakes in judgment in the
early days of his term. He was trying and wasn't doing a bad job,
on the whole.
You know about Senator Bruner now. I don't care who you
are, you have heard of the young senator and his energetic man-
ner of going about things. He has been after some of those
things we don't like about entrenched government here in the
Now, Senator Bruner has been stripped of his committee
membership with the Department of Corrections, because he
dared to vote against the entrenched career politicians in Talla-
hassee. If it were to be a decision between Senator Margolis and
Senator Bruner here in the Panhandle as to who should be pres-
ident of the Senate, she or him, Bruner would win out hands
down. It cost him a lucrative committee post, but he voted as his
people and his conscience dictated, not as the power wanted
him to. That must have caused some agonizing on Senator
Now, he says he just might shift to the Republican Party
when he comes up for re-election. Making the point that "I didn't
leave the Democratic Party, the Democratic Party left me!" Brun-
er can point to just how and when the Party did just that, as it
has done to many here in the Panhandle. Even though there are
many in the Panhandle who had rather align themselves with
the Democratic Donkey than the best Republican alive, many
have voted for the man rather than the party, unashamedly, for
One thing we have found out during the past four years, Sen-
ator Bruner isn't a dummy and If we were a betting man, we'd
have to give odds for the Senator landing on his feet, whether or
not he runs as a Democrat, or, perish the thought, as a Republi-
Hoodwink the People
While we're on the subject of Senator Bruner, we were more
than satisfied the other day when he offered the opinion that the
now-famous budget cuts weren't made in order to save money,
and at .the same time, not hamper necessary state operations.
The Sfeator feels the cuts were made to hoqdwlnk the people 9f.
the state of Florida.
"Hoodwink them in what manner?" you might ask. Well, ei-
ther the Senator and this writer are both paranoid, or we're both
right on target when we feel that the people of Florida are being
led down the primrose path to insisting that the state Legisla-
ture increase taxes.
That's right: insist!
We had never seen the idea expressed anywhere but here in
The Star, but Senator Bruner put respectability to the idea the
other day when he offered the opinion that the budget cuts-
even though cuts were necessary-were made in areas which
were more visible and necessary, in order to encourage the peo-
ple to demand more taxes so the services cut could continue to
function as they did prior to the cuts.
Taking money from education makes parents demand more
taxes so their children won't be short-changed in school. We
don't believe money is why they ARE short-changed, but that's
another story. The people will demand more taxes be levied in
order to beef up social programs such as Medicaid, back to their
previous level of spending. There are any number of highly visi-
ble government programs which were given the axe, so John Q.
Public could pick up on it without having to research anything.
We agree with Senator Bruner that the cuts were selective for
this purpose. Meanwhile, other boondoggles keep on doggling
merrily along, while they cost Senator Bruner and others their
committee posts for objecting.

Christmas Eve Brought Our Family A Little Babe In A 747
CHRISTMAS IS over and I
now know how Mary and Joseph
felt on that very first Christmas. I
had virtually the same kind of
Christmas Eve they experienced
over 2,000 years ago. It makes for
a different kind of Christmas, I
can tell you.
I have lived through some dif-
ferent kinds of Christmas days in
my life, but never one quite like
the one which developed at our
house on Christmas Eve of this
Until this year, I guess about
,the most unusual Christmas I
ever had was a long time ago,
when I was an 11-year-old boy,
back in Oklahoma. Daddy was
here in Port St Joe working on
the construction of the paper mill
and couldn't get back home for
Christmas. So, he notified us he
was sending a present for the
family for Christmas.
Well, the day came, two days
prior to Christmas, when the
present arrived at the Frisco Rail-
road station at the bottom of De-
pot Hill, just east of town. It had
rained, the rain had frozen and
then it had snowed on top of that
ice. It was hard to walk, ride or
crawl outside without sliding
down. But, my brother Will and I
set out down Depot Hill, with a
wagon, to bring the gift home .
a treacherous walking trip down
icy Depot Hill. Mind you, we had
to come back up that hill, too.
We got the gift which was a
huge box and started trying to
wrestle it back up the hill in that
little coaster wagon, over frozen
ground, slush and snow. To this
day, I don't know how we did it,
but we did. The present turned
out to be a fine radio, which
could pick up stations all the way
to Chicago and Del Rio, Texas. .
BUT THIS CHRISTMAS was
much more satisfying than that
one so long ago, which resulted in
a radio, even though it provided
hours of entertainment as we lis-
tened to Jack Armstrong, Jack
Benny, The Shadow, Fred Allen,
Charlie McCarthy and all the oth-
er REAL programs.
This Christmas, the whole
family had gathered at our house,
as usual, to enjoy a Christmas
Eve feast and open our presents.
There was a house full, but it was
to get even more full before the
evening was over. The evening
was to provide a re-play of the
original Christmas before the day
We read the Christmas story

were opened, and the similarity
of the two events-that one then,

OUR FIRST GRANDSON had
returned recently from a duty sta-
tion in Germany and Is now sta-
tioned at Fort Benning. While in
Germany, he married and he and
his wife had a son-my first great
grandson-Just short of six
months ago. Since the grandson
was in training in Fort Benning,
he couldn't bring his wife and
child over until his training end-
ed. It ended a couple of weeks
ago, and started the wheels turn-
ing to get his family to the states.
The process met with one de-
lay after another and it started to
appear as if their arrival wouldn't
be in time for Christmas. The
grandson, who was home for the
holidays, was disappointed, natu-
rally. The grandmother, our
daughter, was also disappointed,
since she wanted to meet her new
grandson and have her daughter-
in-law here to fuss over. I'll ad-
mit, the great grandparents were
feeling a little anxious, too.
THEN, THE MIRACLE hap-
pened. Our new granddaughter

doesn't matter, so long as things

The Day After Christmas
T'was the day after Christmas, when all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The children were all nestled, all snug in car seats,
All hoping that Mamaw soon they would see,
Mom, she was with them, all ready to ride,
Sitting with purse clutched on the passenger side.
The kids were all dreaming of good things to eat,
While Mom was just hoping to survive the feat.
I had just settled back, with a "whew" from my mouth,
When all of a sudden it was quiet in the house.
Not a word from the kitchen, no steps in the hall,
No flush from the bathroom, no noise at alll
No loud tapes were playing, no door knocker banged,
No loud peals of laughter from any room came.
The cat was outside, the dog was there, too,
That's where they would stay, the day and night through.
When up in my bedroom there arose such a clatter,
It scared me to death, I didn't know what was the matter!
I scaled the steps, at least four at a time,
And when I got there, I stopped on a dime.
There on the crest of my clean dresser top,
Was my money clip dancing, and it wouldn't stop.
I jumped up and down and slid all around,
My knife soon joined in, like a silly clown.
When they finally stopped, I asked, 'Where's all my money?" '.
They both laughed and laughed till tears flowed like honey.
'Your money's all gone, your credit cards, too,
All you have left are bills that are due."
'You said Christmas was good, that Christmas was greatly
But you can't even remember all the food that you ate.
But you'll always remember what was under the tree,
Because you will be billed, there ain't nothing free."
T'was the day after Christmas, when all through the house,
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
But tear drops were falling, on the bedroom floor,
Santa's always welcome, but not the bills any morel

A 3.7 percent cost-of-living
adjustment will affect the amount
of Social Security and Supple-
mental Security Income (SSI) pay-
ments received in January.
This change raises the maxi-
mum Social Security retirement
benefit to .$1,088 a month and
the Federal SSI payment to $422
*a month for an individual and
$633 a month for a couple.
The tax rate for Social Securi-
ty remains unchanged at 7.65
percent each for employees and
employers. However, the wage
base, the amount of earnings
subject to the Social Security tax,
increases from $53,400 to
$55,500. The wage base for the
Medicare portion of the Social Se-
curity tax increases from
$125,000 to $130,200.
Benefit increases are made
annually based on the change in
the consumer price index as
measured from the third quarter
of one year to the third quarter of
the following year.
Other changes announced by
the Social Security Administra-
tion include new limits on the
amount of money a beneficiary
can earn and still receive full So-
cial Security benefits. The limits
for 1992 increase from $7,080 to
$7,440 for beneficiaries under 65;
from $9,720 to $10,200 for peo-
ple 65 to 69. The earnings limits
do not apply to people 70 and

The boy, Robbie Armstrong,

Douglas Landing, on the Dalkeith

CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM
0 Food and Feeding
Babies Should Be Breast Fed
," -,- -' Eli"zaet By
.' ... Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.
Most babies are born fairly normal as to weight and height.
When they deviate greatly from normal values later, this can be
traced back to things that have happened to them since birth. It is
very easy to fall into traps where feeding children is involved and
this can result in a malnourished child.
With few exceptions, babies should be breast fed. Breast milk
has many advantages over cow's milk for feeding babies. When a
baby is breast fed, the balance of supply and demand is fairly easy
Parents of formula fed babies will often say to me, "He is not
satisfied" with one or the other formula. When mixed properly there
are the same calories and food value in Similac, SMA, Nursoy, and
Isomil. The baby might be more comfortable with one or the other,
but there should be no difference in food value or satiety factor.
Many parents interpret any cry from a baby as a cry of hunger.
Babies cry frequently and for many reasons other than hunger. New
babies often need only the satisfaction of sucking and not more
food. A bottle of water or a pacifier will satisfy just as well as a bot-
tle of formula. A fat baby may please some parents and grandpar-
ents, but is not necessarily a healthy baby.
The next problem to arise after feeding too much formula is
usually the premature introduction of solid food. In the past there
seemed to be contest among mothers of new babies to see who
could start what food the earliest. It is really not good for babies to
have much in the way of foods other than breast milk or formula
before six months of age. I will usually have mother slowly begin to
introduce foods about three months of age, but this is to introduce
the spoon and establish feeding practices. When introducing a new
food, this food should be fed at least three days before introducing
another new food.
The food progression I recommend for babies goes from cereal
to vegetables to meats to fruits. It seems children are better meat
and vegetable eaters when we do it this way. Fruits are never a
problem because all babies love fruits. When a baby has recurring
diarrhea it is often caused by too much fruit and juice. Children
under two years of age often do not tolerate fruits except bananas,'
applesauce and apple juice.
After early feeding problems, the next difficulty will usually
arise between ages one and two years. The child from one year to
two years usually gains only four to five pounds. After tripling his
birth weight by one year of age, this is a drastic change. Because he
is no longer adding weight rapidly, the child does not need as much
food as he had previously been Ingesting. At this age it seems the
child eats a good meal only every two to three days.
When a child is not growing rapidly he will probably not eat a
lot. Because the eating pattern has changed, the parent feels some-
thing is wrong. They make the mistake of feeding the child at times
other than mealtimes. For example Robert does not eat his break-
fast About 10-10:30 he comes whining for something to eat. Be-
cause he did not eat breakfast, the care giver will give him some-
thing to eat. Because he eats at 10-10:30 he will also not be hungry
and will not eat at lunchtime. Instead of urging the child to eat, ad-
here to regular mealtimes. If your child does not eat at mealtime,
that is o.k., but he should not be fed between meals. If parents are
offering nutritious meals on a regular meal schedule, the child will
eat when he is hungry and he will not satisfy his hunger with non-
nutritious food between meals.
Many families are spending money that should be going for
milk, meat, breads, fruits, and vegetables on potato chips, corn
chips, candy and soft drinks. Strong bones, good muscles, good vi-
sion and general good health do not come in a candy wrapper pr a
Coca. Cola bottle.

all what old age brings. She's always there with a smile on her
face and a happy greeting for all who find the time to visit her. In
a society that moves as fast as ours, it's so easy to not make the
time. And when we do make the time to make that visit, she un-
derstands that we're busy and have things to do. I know it's hard
to make the trip down to the Nursing Home. To see the lady
tears me up for weeks afterwards, to see how old age brings a

the paving agent to re-surface Port St. Joe, St. Joe Beach,
Beacon Hill and Highland View streets which will be sur-
faced under the Gulf County/City of Port St. Joe paving pro-
gram. The former asphalt firm which operated a plant at
the old LP site near the AN railroad siding east of Port St.
Joe, went broke about the time paving was to begin. Rob-
erts tried to purchase the plant from the banks holding
mortgages on the equipment, but a Wisconsin firm entered
a higher bid. Roberts then located this plant, purchased it
and overhauled it before bringing it to Port St. Joe. The
plant is expected to be in operation in about two weeks.

City crews worked frantically to make repairs when the main water line ruptured near the pumping
station cutting off the city's supply.
. .Year of Anxiety From Page 1
Friends congratulated Herman Dean on a special day held for the veteran band director.
sion has convinced itself that the best way to
deal with the solid waste program in the
county is to contract with a firm to collect,
transfer to the Bay County incinerator and
have the collected waste burned. The arrange-
ment is being designed to completely remove
the county from the solid waste collection or
hauling business and place it in the hands of
the private firm, with users paying the entire ,.
expense of collection and disposal.
The firm may even wind up with the opera-
tion of the county's two landfills at Five Points
near Port St. Joe and at Wetappo, east of We-
Whatever arrangements are made, the
county will still be responsible to the State of:
Florida, for the approved handling of the,,
county's solid waste; a fact which will contin- :
ue to keep that subject in the news.
A SUBTLE BATTLE
One of the subtle, but extremely important ,
battles engaged during 1991, was the '"Water ,
War" between Florida, Georgia and Alabama,
which will dramatically affect Gulf County, no
- natter what the outcome.
Georgia wants to take a bigger slice of the
Tri-River's water supply for the people of At-
lanta to drink, wash their cars and water their
lawns. Alabama wants to shortstop more wa-
ter out of the system also, for various reasons..
Florida, which depends on water from the
Chattahoochee and Flint Rivers to form the
Apalachicola River near Chattahoochee, is ex-.
pressing stiff objections and has managed to
persuade the other two states to sit down and
talk about dividing up the water supply com-
ing down the watershed -area on a more equi-
No decisions have been made as the year.
HEAVY RAINS END DROUGHT
For thl past several years, north Florida
has been complaining about a lack of rainfall,
and a dropping water table. Farmers have had
crops stunted, due to lack of rainfall at the
proper time and water reservoirs were drop-
ping to the danger point. -
TI4a is no longer so. Gulf County received
record rainfalls during the spring and summer
months. The County had' received the equiva-
lent to its annual average rainfall by Septem-
ber. Heavy rains continued to fall until Octo-
ber, when they dwindled off to more of an
While the rains replenished the water ta-
ble, they destroyed or stunted crops, caused
commercial fishing to suffer tremendous loss-
es and virtually shut down the shrimping in-
dustry in St. Joseph Bay because 'of the high
volume of fresh water going into the bay up-
setting the water balance.
The water balance also seemed to be the
culprit for causing spartina grass---a growth
Important to the seafood nursery in the head
of the Bay-to begin dying out in spots. The
State of Florida has scientists surveying the
die-out. Preliminary verdicts from this study
are that the unusually heavy rains during the
year caused the water grass to die back.
The County received a total of 78.04 inch-
es, of rainfall ,for the year. It 'was almost as
much as a record set in 1975, when 78.5
inches were recorded.

that are different from the ones
we practice. Here are a few:
Does New Year's occur on
It does in Egypt depending
upon the religion.

The official date is January
1st. But this varies throughout

Before drinking the eggnog,
people would life their glasses
and say, '"Wassail." This is the or-

New Year's chuckle time
Speaking of New Year's feast-

ly? He thought that the word
hunger meant what the posse did
to the lady cattle rustler.

Forty years have taught us that the most im-
portant part of our work has been the com-
pounding of the prescriptions you have entrust-

ful buyer of the medicines and health-aids you
get from us. We must not only carry in stock

the right quantities, so that everything will al-
ways be in perfect condition.

al patrons, are the reason why we have been
able to conduct our pharmacy so long, and that
you deserve to be served with the same careful
attention and courtesy one gives a friend.

SMOKING AND ORAL CANCER
You already know that smok-
ing can be instrumental in the
cause of bronchitis, lung cancer,
emphysema and heart disease.
But what does smoking have to
do with oral health? It affects
your whole mouth in many ways
- none of which are beneficial.
By far, the most serious risk
is the development of oral can-
cer. Smokers have a four times
greater risk of oral cancer than
Tobacco in any form can
cause cancer of the mouth and
throat. So don't think you can
avoid cancer by switching from
cigarettes to a pipe or cigars.
This year an estimated
24,000 people will be stricken
by oral cancer. Within five years
many of these people will be
dead. Each year, approximately
8,000 people die from oral can-
cer. One of the reasons for this
high death rate is that oral can-
cer victims do not recognize the
need to see their dentist or phy-
sician until it becomes too late
for treatment to be successful.
Yet, ironically, mouth cancer is
one of the few varieties that can
be easily recognized by a visual
diagnosis in its early stages.
Prepared as a public service
to promote better dental health.

S' ust as we have walls in our
homes to enclose or separate dif- .
fereint use areas, plants can be
used for the same purpose in our
"landscapes. Practically every
home landscape has areas which
need to be enclosed or separated
for different uses or screened
from public view. For example, it
is usually desirable to screen gar-
bage cans, alre conditioning units
and service areas from view both
from the street and from your
home. Often your entire back
yard may be screened to provide
privacy for the family. And even
within this area, you might want
to further divide this space into a
children's play area, terrace and
a private spot for yourself.
All of these objectives and
many more can be achieved
through proper use of a hedge.
There are five general uses for
hedge plants. They can be used
as a visual screen to keep some-
one from seeing in-or-out, as a
barrier to keep people and ani-
nial's out, or keep children and
4* 4 pets' in, as a 'divider --ji 'sf as"..
P walls separate your home into dif-:;
ferent purpose areas, and as an
aesthetic part of your landscape
design. A clipped or natural
hedge can make a beautiful addi-
tion to your garden. And finally, a
hedge can be used to greatly re-
duce noise pollution. It has been
estimated that proper use of
plant screens can reduce. the
noise level as much as 60 per-
cent. Plant parts break up sound
waves, change their direction,
and reduce their intensity.
Through Judicious use of trees
and shrubs, you can reduce the
soQundof a' heavily: traveled high-
way running past your home to a
level of a suburban street in the
quiet of evening. _
Hedges can be used along or
rin combination with fences. -Make
sure ,the screen' is .ith harmony
'ith your house and 'garden. If
space is limited, consider a fence,
rather than a hedge, which re-
quies ,more' space-. Fences :-may
costmnore initially, however,; over
many ears the cost of maintain-
Ing a good-hedge may be higher.
The choice of plants for a
screen or hedge is practically un-
,7Jlmited. Flowering shrubs like
. aibella'. azalea, butterfly-bush, ca-
mellia., xora, Jasmines, plumba-,
_go,'andfeijboa can be used effec-
tively. For interesting foliage,
consider chaste-tree, elaeagnus,
nandina or pittosporum. Podocar-
pus, anise, cherry laurel, juni-
pers, cedar, hollies, wax-myrtle
and many ligustrums make excel-
lent evergreen hedges and'
