County Settles On Argus


The Gulf County Commission accept-
ed the recommendation of a special com-
mittee Tuesday morning, and made a de-
cision to narrow their solid waste
contract negotiations to one company-
Argus Services of Panama City.
For more than a month, the Commis-
. sion has been dealing with M&O Sanita-
tion, also of Panama City, who gave Ar-
gus a run for their money in the bidding
process for the County's business.
The committee made up of County at-
torney Robert M. Moore, administrative
assistant Larry Wells, and operations di-
rector, Bill McGee, gave several reasons
for their choice of Argus as the best deal
for the County.
Since the Commission accepted the
recommendation and agreed to proceed
with further negotiations with Argus, it
now seems more certain than ever that
the county will consider privatization as
the solution of choice for the County's


solid waste problems.
The committee chose Argus because
of their proposal clarification in several
matters, such as compactor site opera-
tions, including specific fees and charges
for the service; better discount position
for increased usage of the service by resi-
dential customers, and offer of a one-year
contract price. The Commission especial-
ly liked this portion of the contract so
they could get out of the deal quickly if it
doesn't work out to the satisfaction of the
County as a whole.
Argus also would allow the customer
to furnish his own container for the ser-
vice. M&O's bid required use of M&O
containers which the customer would be
required to rent or purchase.
The Board felt the Argus service pric-
es were lower than M&O, although only
by pennies. The clear pricing scale [M&O
had a fee plus expense offer on one cate-
gory], and the one year renewable agree-


ment, were sufficient reasons to swing
their decision to Argus, rather than
M&O.
Both firms expressed their purpose
was to operate the compactor sites only
so long as necessary and probably not
more than six months, after which time
they would be closed. The compactors
would be kept open for a period on a fee
basis, with people bringing their waste to
the compactors paying a tipping fee,
based on the charge to incinerate the sol-
id waste, transport it to Bay County and
pay a person to operate the compactor.
The County presently operates com-
pactors in south Gulf Couhty on Indus-
trial Road and in north Gulf County, five
miles west of Wewahitchka on State Road
22.
22. The City of Port St. Joe asked the
Commission to delay signing any con-
tract until they could weigh their options

Is Gulf County's


OYW Selection
Miss Tracy Davis was selected as Gulf 6ii's Outstanding iunig
Woman Saturday evening from a field of 21 contestants in the 25th an-
nual pageant. Miss Davis, daughter of Rev. and Mrs. Nicky Davis of We-
wahitchka also won the talent portion of the program with her excep-
tional piano rendition of "If My People Will Pray" by Dino Karsonakis.
The program was hosted by the Gulf County Senior Citizens Associ-
ation this year, with Miss Kim Davis, the 1991 Outstanding Young
Woman, serving as mistress of ceremonies.
The field of contestants was selected from high school seniors of
Port St. Joe High School and Wewahitchka High School, based on aca-
demic excellence and teacher character recommendation. The contest-
ants were judged on their scholastic ability, talent, judge's interview,
physical fitness and poise and composure.
Alternates selected were: first alternate, Elitha Gant, daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Adrian Gant, Jr.; second alternate, Patricia Nedley,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Robert Nedley; third alternate, Stacy McGill,
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Johnny Ray McGill and fourth alternate Tra-
cy Wade, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Kendall Wade.
Miss Gant also won the judge's interview. The physical fitness
award went to Mildred Adkison of Wewahitchka, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Tim Adkison. Shannon Smith, daughter of Durwood Smith and
Vicki Morgan captured the poise and composure award and Jennifer
Brewer, daughter of Richard Brewer and Karen Pisarski received the
scholastic award.
The Spirit Award, voted on by the contestants, went to Miss Kristy

Gulf Nearing Agreement with DCA on Comp Plan


Gulf County's problems with
getting its comprehensive plan
approved by Florida's Department
of Community Affairs seemed to
take a giant step toward solution
late last week.
Administrative assistant Lar-
ry Wells, who has been shepherd-
ing the formation and acceptance
of the plan for the County Com-
mission, reported to the Board
Tuesday that DCA has softened
its stand toward density of build-
ings constructed on beach and
waterfront properties.
Wells told the Commission
the DCA has verbally agreed on
acceptance of three units per acre
and a 75 foot setback line for sep-
tic tanks on Gulfside properties.
The County had originally asked
for four and DCA had suggested
one, in early negotiations.
Density for Bay side proper-
ties would be two units per acre,
with 150 foot setback for septic
tanks, with approved exceptions.
DCA had originally asked for one
every two acres, then softened
their request to one per acre.
Now, they are agreeing to two.
Properties in the Indian La-
goon area would also be limited
to two units per acre.
The exceptions to the septic
tank requirements would require
use of an aerobic or other state
approved system within the con-
trol zone.
The Commission also had the
first reading of an ordinance
which would declare the compre-
hensive plan in effect on the date
that it was approved by the DCA.


Absence of such an ordinance,
was a strumbling block in ap-
proval of the entire plan by DCA.
The Commission authorized
Wells to accept the new criteria,
except for one item. They in-
structed him to request a 100
foot setback for septic tanks' on
the shores of St. Joseph Bay,
rather than 150 feet requested by
DCA.
HIGHLAND VIEW,
BEACHES, WATER SYSTEM
Rick Herndon, a circuit rider
for the. Rural Water Association,
advised the Commission Tuesday
that the only way the Beaches
and Highland View water systems
will operate on a "sound basis is
for the county to adjust the ser-
vice charges.
Herndon said the biggest
problem is not enough revenue to
pay for maintenance and up-
keep. In the Beaches system, he
reported the charges for water are
not enough for effectively operat-
ing the system, keeping it in good
condition.
The Rural Water official made
recommendations to the Board,
which would impact the Highland
View system more than it would
the Beaches system. -
The bottom line was that
Herndon recommended that
Highland View customers have
their bills increased by $2.50 per
month to pay for maintenance to
the system. 'You have recently
put new meters in the system, so
this problem should be solved for
quite a while," the expert said. He


pointed out that there had never
been provisions made in the rates
for the Highland View customers,
to pay for system maintenance.
Customers on that system cur-
rently pay a base bill of $10.00.
Herndon pointed out that


this increase would not be
enough to furnish funds to repay
the County $50,000 it loaned the
system to make major repairs
and pay off its notes still owed to
the federal government.
For 'the Beaches system,


Rural Water Association official, Rick Herndon, makes recom-
mendations for operation of Gulfs rural water systems to County
Board.


Herndon recommended that the
minimum rate cover only the first
2,000 gallons of water [rather
than 3,000 gallons as it now
does] and increase the price per
1,000 gallons to $3.00 for all wa-
ter used over the 2,000 gallon
minimum.
The minimum charge for the
Beaches would stand at the cur-
rent $16.00, but would furnish
1,000 gallons less water. 'This
would allow the customer to bet-
ter manage his own increase in
water services," Herndon said.
In a related matter, the Com-
mission agreed to begin taking
applications for a person to main-
tain both systems on a full-time
basis; another recommendation
by Herndon.
Hemdon's examination of the
systems and his subsequent re-
port was part of a program en-
tered into by the Commission to
make both systems totally self-
supporting.
STREET NAMES
A delegation from Highland
View was present to participate in
any discussion about changing
names of streets to accommodate
the new 911 emergency telephone
system. Chairman Billy Traylor
told the group there would be no
discussion on the matter at Tues-
day's meeting.
Traylor also pointed out that
when street name changes are
considered, they would be consid-
ered all over the County and not
just Highland View. "We have this

Solution
The opening of the 1992 session of the Florida Legislature
Tuesday, probably offered no surprises for anyone. Least of all, it
offered no surprises for the Floridian whose responsibility or
duty it is to pay taxes. The opening session also tried to make
the paying of taxes a universal responsibility. It appears as if the
paying will be a generic activity which all citizens will be involved
in.
That, in itself, is not bad news. Those who have been paying
in the past have long insisted that everyone should have the
privilege of paying a portion of Florida's taxes.
The only problem we have with the new tax proposals offered
by Governor Chiles in his State of the State address to the Legis-
lature, suggests that that august body of representatives of the
people of Florida draw the conclusion that they will stand still
for an additional tax bill of some $1.5 BILLION more in tax with-
drawals from the public's pocketbook.
This is supposed to solve Florida's fiscal problems. It never
has in the past, but somehow, the Governor seems to feel it will
this time. One thing we can guarantee; the application of still a
Higher tax levy will create grumbling from those whose lot it falls
to pay. That's a "lead-pipe cinch" as our friend, Wesley Grace, is
prone to say.
One thing we agree with the Governor about in his opening
address Tuesday, was the need to get out of the lottery business
and to discourage or deny the expansion of legal gambling activ-
ities in the state. The Governor is right on target in this sugges-
tion. We even go so far as to say that eradication of the lottery
would go a long way to solve our fiscal problems in this state.
The lottery siphons off money which would be spent for other
legitimate, taxable, activities if it were not spent on lottery tick-
ets. It is our opinion that the State of Florida would reap more
money from the taxes on items purchased by the funds tossed
into the lottery system, than it does off the lottery operation it-
self. In addition, the lottery expenditures would be used, to a
large extent, to purchase necessities by the ones who now pur-
chase tickets.
The eradication of the lottery would mean that every once in
a while, one of the millions of people in Florida would not receive
a multi-million dollar windfall from the lottery system; but nei-
ther would the program create more and more clients for the
state's aid to the poor program.
Too, the lottery eradication would once and for all remove the
fairy tale that it is helping education. Education would be better
off if it were not dependant on the possibility that it may receive
some funds from the program. Our youth would also not be
saddled by the stigma of having their education partially paid for
by funds collected by the misfortune of others.



On Scratching Backs
Our nation can only blame its own people for our economic
condition. President Bush and several industrialists are complet-
ing a sales trip -through the Orient to sell American goods and
help the balance of payments of our nation.
The real cause of our problems-especially with automobiles
is our own fault; not that of the Japanese or the Koreans, etc. If
Americans didn't purchase Japanese-made automobiles like
they were going out of style, we'd have no balance of payment
problem with that or any other nation.
We understand, some people have problems with quality con-
trol in some American products, but in reality that sounds more
like an excuse than reason to us. There is more than one Ameri-
can maker of all products sold here. Or at least there used to be
before they went out of business for lack of patronage. If one
manufacturer doesn't suit your desires for quality or style, go to
another.
If you are one of those who insisted on purchasing Japanese-
made cars, thinking you were protecting your own interests,
take a look at the most recent newspapers. The Japanese have
generously agreed to accept an additional 20,000 American-
made automobiles for sale in that country. They were already ac-
cepting 38,000, making their total imports of automobiles in-
crease to 58,000 units.
That makes us hopping mad! We import 1.5 million autos
from that nation and offer them for sale. They will accept no
more than 58,000 cars from us. That's a fair deal? Hertz buys
more cars than that each year!
If we as Americans are going to become interested in our fu-
ture, we should demand that the Japanese allow us free access
to their markets or we should cut off the free access to ours.
That's only fair and it's the only way to guarantee our solvency.
That old cliche, 'You scratch my back and I'll scratch yours," is
uniquely American and effective.


Kesley
S' Colbert
I tell you what is going to be
interesting about this story today.
No, it's not my Impeccable gram-
mar or the riveting story line. And
it's certainly not the suspenseful
buildup to the big, surprise end-
ing. The interest today lies in
whether I can finish this thing or
not.
Folks, I'm hurting all over.
I've got cramps in both legs. The
big muscle that .runs up the left
side of my back has attacked my
diaphragm. I can't see out of my
left eye and I'm afraid to put my
feet on the floor lest I pop one of
the mammoth blisters that
stretch from heel to toe. I can't'
breathe through my nose and I
think I lost consciousness twice
on the way home. The boys and I
have been down at the church
playing basketball.
I don't know who had the


bright idea of getting the men to-
gether for a little basketball and
fellowship but if I had any
strength left and I could get my
sore, aching hands on his
throat........
"Dad, let's go out in the back-
yard and shoot a few hoops, I was
just getting warmed up!"
'Yeah, Dad, we can turn the
light on--"
"Boys, your dad has got to
write his story," good ole Cathy to
the rescue, "and at the rate he's
moving, I think he's going to be at
it all night!" Good old sarcastic
Cathy to the rescue.
I started to turn toward her
and challenge her to a little no-
holds-barred one-on-one, right-
now, out-back, under-the-lights,
winner-take-all my neck
wouldn't move!
My basketball career started
back in grammar school during
recess. When we got tired of
swinging on the monkey bars,
we'd choose up and play on that
old dirt court with the chain net.
Vicki Fields usually guarded me. I
wasn't one of the better players.
Vicki was stronger than me, and
faster and bigger. But I found a


way to stop her. When she drove
past me, going for the lay up, I'd
grab her hair.
In Junior high, we'd play on
that concrete court behind the
gym. In between the fights I
learned a lot about round ball
shooting at those chain nets. I
discovered that the concrete
didn't give when you went sliding
belly down across it. I realized I
wasn't a very good basketball
player but I could do O.K. If I
could be a captain and choose
the tall guy first. I also learned
the only rule in backyard basket-
ball games no autopsy no
foul. I'd go home with a black eye,
busted lip and blood drying on
both knees, and I'd feel great. All
the parts still worked. The most
important, thing was the final
score. But that was 30 years ago.
Tonight, I just considered myself
lucky to make it home.
"Dad, did you notice how
Brother Allen and Mr. Robert and
Mr. Woody and Mr. Terry kept
running up and down the court?
How come you just got in one
spot and stood there?"
"Is that the way ya'll played'
back in the stone age?"


"Boys, you should have seen
your father play when he was in
high school. He was great!" I wish
I could turn my head and look at
her face. Was she being polite.
sarcastic, or bless her heart, had
time dimmed her memory?
I can tell you the biggest
thing about making the high
school team. They had real string
nets. My first game as a sopho-
more third team guard was at Bu-
chanan. We dressed in a class-
room that had icicles hanging off
the light fixtures. I went out to
warm up for my first ever varsity
game with blue lips. I warmed up
quickly. They had those big,
stand up radiators about three
feet off the court. They were red
hot. By tip off it was a hundred
degrees. The frigid classroom at
half time was a welcome relief.
Coming back on the court, I acci-
dentally put my hand on one of
those radiators. I had a third de-
gree burn and coming case of
pneumonia and I hadn't even got-

Bo Booth fouled out with
about three minutes left in the
game. Coach sent me in. With

Coming Up With An Idea Can Get to be A Problem When You Write One Regularly


ALMOST EVERY WEEK I'll
have either Kesley or Wendell
come up with the question, "What
can I write about this week?"
I really feel for them because
that is a real problem, ranking
right up there alongside which
side to take in Yugoslavia, or
Russian Georgia, or whether or
not George Bush should get his
flu shot now.
Coming up with a subject for
a column every week is almost
like rearing children. You get into
the business almost by accident
and then you ",wing it" for the rest
of your life. God trusted the rear-
ing of children to amateurs and
there are many times when I
think He did the same thing with
newspaper columnists. Just jump
right in and scratch and claw for
something to write each and eve-
ry week [day].
Some newspaper columnists
have it easy. They are that tyle
person who can just reel the
words off, one after another, non-


stop. Then there are those who
have had enough personal experi-
ences to last them a life-time.
THEREIN LIES THE prob-
lem. I haven't had all that many
experiences, in order to keep my-
self supplied with subjects and
share with my friends and fellow
writers in this magnificent news-
paper.
For instance, I have never
had a coon dog.
Nor have I ever gone coon
hunting.
I have hunted my share, you
understand, but I've never coon
hunted. Somehow, I have never


been faced with having to con-
vince myself that it would be a
fun thing to do, getting out in the
dark, cold, wet swamp at night
and listen to a dog bark.
I'm refrainng from saying the
word, "crazy," here, but I sort of
get the impression that even Kes-
ley Colbert, who fills up the space
at the top of.this page, thinks it's
kind of strange that a person
would be willing; yea, even eager;
to perform this activity.
Answer me, if you will; would
you rather look for a lost hound
dog all night long, or curl up in a
warm, comfortable bed? Had you
rather start the day bright-eyed


and bushy-tailed from a good
night's sleep, or had you rather
taste a night-long collection of
caffeine in the roof of your mouth
and have cold feet from a night of
sloshing through a creek full of
water moccasins? Had you rather
be at work, or still chasing a
hound dog someone talked you
into paying $500 for?
No contest!
I DIDN'T PLAY football for
Mississippi Southern either, like
Wendell did. I didn't even operate
a' pest control business, unless
you could classify possession of a
solid screen wire fly flapper as
pest control.
My dog didn't run away for
three weeks at the time. I treat
hei- well enough that she stays
home.
I didn't chase pretty girls in a
Mississippi town while I was
away at school, until the wee
hours of the morning [darn itil
I somehow failed to grow up


on a farm and have all those ad-
ventures to write about. I never
lived in Memphis, Tennessee, or
Gonzalez.
You see, my exposure to the
adventuresome world has been
sort of limited and it has cost me
dearly when it came time to come
up with a subject for a weekly
column.
I HAVE NEVER even owned
an Isuzu pick-up truck! So, you
see, I'm operating with a real
handicap. Still, Kesley and Wen-
dell pump me regularly for a sub-
ject to write about.
They're asking the really
tough question, too. Both Wendell
and Kesley can go and on about
anything you want to talk about.
Their real problem is getting a
kick start into a subject, so they
can go on and on.
I have the same problem.
Sometimes, I just can't come up
with a topic of conversation. So, I
just sit down and start writing


and what comes out is what you
get
But, if you haven't owned
coon dogs, played college football.
or lived on a farm, what you get is
sort of limited.
BUT, I TRY to help both
these guys out, in my own limited
way. I make suggestions .to them,
at times. Some of the ideas they
take and at times they will look at
me, shake their heads, screw up
their face into a grimmace and
say, "Are you crazy?"
Even back when Kes had
"Sue-Cat" to write about, and
Wendell had a boat he had pur-
chased and had to work on every
time he put it in the water, they
came to me for column subjects.
If a guy can't get at least a year of
columns out of a cat named Sue
and at least two years out of a
boat which won't run, except
when it wants to, he doesn't need
to be asking someone for ideas
who doesn't even chew tobacco!

Phantry
By
Wendell Campbell


Today Was A Piddlin' Day
It was one of those days for me, one that we as adults, heads
of households, fathers and mothers, payers of bills, rarely have:
It was, for me almost a perfect day.
It's easy for children and young people to have good days be-
cause all they have to worry about are things like acne, who they
will date next, If they will pass a course or not and other earth-
shattering things like that. If they only knew what lay ahead for
them, they would start some serious worrying at an earlier age.
But today was different for me. It was a rare day when every-
thing went along smoothly and nothing in particular was bother-
ing me. Let me tell you about it.
It was late when I awoke this morning; almost ten o'clock.
Usually I'm up before daybreak, but we were up until almost
three a.m., waiting on our children to come home. Our daughter
was a contestant in the Outstanding Young Woman Pageant Sat-
urday night and after the pageant she and several other contest-
ants had a party and it didn't start until after midnight, so it was
almost three a.m. when she got home. We waited up on them.
Well, at least my wife did.
I was extremely proud of our daughter that night. No, she
didn't win, nor did she place, but she did compete and was very
complimentary of the contestants who did. As a matter of fact,
she had compliments for all the girls who competed. She's a
much better loser than I once was.
But, back to today. By the time we were up and had break-
fast it was too late to go to church so I decided to piddle. Do you
know what piddlin' is? If you don't, piddlin' is doing a little of this
and a little of that, but more than anything, piddlin' is doing
what you want to do when you want to do it. And that's what I
did all day long. And believe it or not, I accomplished nrmch more '
than I intended. It's much easier to do things when you don't
have to do them, I've found.
Shortly after lunch, I piddled up to the TV room to watch the
ball game. After about ten minutes, I piddled off to sleep and had
good almost two-hour nap. That's the kind of piddlin' I like to
do.
When I woke up I was a bit sluggish so I fixed a pot of coffee
and after about two cups, I was ready to piddle some more. I vis-
ited with my son and his friend for a while, then marinated some
steaks we were going to have for supper and then piddled over to
the typewriter to do some writing, part of which you are reading.
This is the kind of piddlin' I enjoy most.
I had planned on taking a piddlin' walk, but by the time I was
ready to go, I was piddled out. Well, I was just too piddled to walk
so .I piddled around the house some more.
About the time I was ready to put on the steaks, it started to
rain. The grill is outside so I put on my new rain Jacket and while
the steaks were cooking, I piddled around in the rain. My neigh-
bors might think I'm crazy. My family has known it for quite
some time.
It is now almost midnight and I've run out of space for this
article. And, besides that, I'm piddled out!
I hope you have some piddlin' good days soon!

Fluoride Levels Cause Concern at Mexico Beach


The Mexico Beach Commis-

meeting to ask -the people for
their input toward solution of a
problem with a high, but fluctuat-

system.
The city has had its attention

same problem of streets with the
same name, all over the county
and this Board will not change
names, where changes are neces-
sary, in just one portion of the
County."
Traylor asked the Board to
agree on a hearing for street
name changes at the February
meeting. "We'll have the regular
meeting at 9:00 a.m., and the
hearing at 5:00 p.m.," Traylor
said.
The hearing will Involve prob-

portions of the County.

Letter...
to the Editor


Can This

Be Justice?
To the Editor:
I would like to comment on
the article in your paper last
week titled, "Judge Costello
Hands Down 7 Sentences." It
states that Houston and Robert
Philyaw were charged with sexual
battery against a child under the
age of 12. They received commu-
nity control, probation, and com-
munity service for their crimes.
It also states that four other
individuals were convicted for
Burglary, cocaine, and even
worthless checks and each of
these individuals were sentenced
to varied amounts of time with
the Department of Corrections.
I would like to know what
this world is coming to. Since
when is burglary so much worse
than sexual battery on a child? If
anyone needs to 'spend time in
prison, it's a child molester, Our
children are the future. of this
world and they need to be pro-
tected. We teach them to be
hones about these things. What
good does it do if justice is not
served? My idea of justice for a
child molesting is not community
service or probation either. Any
man or woman that would prey
on an innocent child needs help
drastically and should %,be put
away for good. The government or
this good old U.S.A. needs to
wake up and realize that there is
something terribly wrong with
our Justice system.
Sincerely,
Tessie Myrick

Hudson said engineers have
recommended a, reverse osmosis

on the system amounts to around

CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM

Giving Medicine

to Children

A Far Cry from a Spoonful of Sugar

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

Present day medicines are often a far cry from Mary Poppins
and her "spoonful of sugar." As medicines become more complex, it
can be extremely important to understand the reason the medicine
is given, the amount of medicine to be given and the time interval
between doses. If the doctor neglects this explanation, please ask
questions until you understand.
The dosage interval of most cold and cough medicines is not
important except to be careful not to overdose the child. Two or
three times a day can be scheduled at the parents' convenience.
When antibiotics (Penicillin, Mycins, Cephalosporins, etc.) are
ordered, these should be given at specific times in order to maintain
a proper level of the drug in the blood. If the blood level is not main-
tained correctly, the medicine will not do the job intended for it to
do. Antibiotics are given as a course. Because a child feels better is
no reason to discontinue his medicine before the course is complet-
ed. Some parents stop the medicine early and the child relapses.
For a regularly scheduled medicine, parents should keep a
chart. The refrigerator is usually a good place to keep the medicine
chart taped. Each dose of medicine should be checked off on the
chart as you go along. When you keep a chart, you do not have to
stop suddenly and say, "Did I give that dose of medicine?"
Infants often require very small doses of medicine. The pharma-
cist can help explain how to measure the amount needed. There are
special measuring spoons and syringes to use when you need to be
more exact than 1/4 or 1/2 teaspoonful. When an infant is spitting
out the medicine, you can get it down by quickly raising his chin
once the medicine is in his mouth.
At least by five or six years of age, children should learn to
swallow tablets. They may continue to receive liquid medicine long-
er, but they should know how to swallow tablets in case this is
needed. A very acceptable way to learn, is to practice with M&M's.
Another problem is the three to five year old who "will not take
his medicine." Parents should have an understanding with the child
about the importance of his medicine and their expectations. Each
dose should not result in a battle. Most medicines today do not
taste bad. It is the general idea of taking medicine to which the
child objects.

went before. Why not be the
first? Maybe you will start a trend
in the family.
2. My grades aren't good
enough. How do you know un-
less you apply? Colleges look at
more than just grades.
3. I can't afford college. -
There are billions of dollars of fi-
nancial aid available to students
just like youl Get out there and
apply for them! You won't know
until you try.
4. I don't know what I want to
do with my life. College is all
about giving you choices. You can
take courses in different fields


Timothy N. R. Armstrong
It's A Boy!
Candy Foster is proud to an-
nounce the birth of her son, Tim-
othy Nathaniel Ray Armstrong.

5. I would rather get a job
and make money. By not going
to college, you might be missing
out on earning a lot more money
than you would without a college
education.

Computer 'Glitch' Blocks Some Call Attempts


Some St Joseph Telephone &
Telegraph Company customers,
along with other callers scattered
across the country, are finding
their calling card calls, collect
calls, and calls billed to third
numbers are being blocked.
According to Lynda N. Borde-
lon, External Affairs Manager,
"It's an industry-wide problem
that began January 1 when the
telephone industry switched to a
new database system as part of
the Bell system break-up." She
said that calling card calls along
with collect calls and calls billed
to third numbers are affected.
In the past, AT&T's database
processed most of what are called
"alternately billed calls." That sys-
tem is being discontinued and re-
placed with 12 databases, owned

Graddy Promoted
Mark Walker, president and
CEO of Barnett Bank of Alachua
County, NA., recently announced
that Frank Graddy, Jr., a native
of Wewahitchka, has been named
executive vice president and
branch administrator.
Graddy is a graduate of Flori-
da State University and joined
Barnett in 1982.
He is the son of Frank and
Violet Graddy of Wewahitchka.

"If it's a technical problem,
the system may correct itself in a

pany, and we'll do everything we

FLUORIDE TOOTHPASTE


If you watch television,
you've probably seen the com-
mercials selling fluoride tooth-
paste ("Mommy, Mommy, my
group had fewer cavities!"). The
best part about these commer-
cials is that, hopefully, they may
induce children to brush their
+eeth. It's the brushing, flossing
and rinsing after eating that is
the most effective preventer of
tooth decay and gum disease.
Toothpaste can help, but it's
only a part of effective oral hy-
giene.
The mere presence of fluo-
ride in a toothpaste does not
give it therapeutic qualities.
There are, however, several
brands of toothpaste on the mar-
ket which contain fluoride in an


effective combination with other
ingredients. They definitely pos-
sess therapeutic value and have
been recommended by the Amer-
ican Dental Association's Coun-
cil on Dental Therapeutics.
It should be emphasized, so
there is no misunderstanding,
that fluoride toothpastes are not
a substitute for the combination
of fluoridation of community
drinking water and professional
fluoride treatment, which have
been known to reduce dental de-
cay by as much as 65 percent.
Prepared as a public service
to promote better dental health.

WHEELS






By: Richard Miller
*Here's a trick for women who
feel uncomfortable traveling
alone leave a man's hat on
the rear window ledge. It's a
subtle hint that someone else
is traveling with you.
*Preventive maintenance
against frozen locks: lubricate
locks with a good graphite lubri-
cant, an avoid having the car'
washed on an extra-cold day.
*"Fully independent suspen-
sion" indicates that each wheel
reacts on its own to road
bumps and depressions, while
other wheels hold the road. It
makes for a more comfortable
ride and better handling, too.
*Fuel Injection Is more efficient
than old-fashioned carburetors,
but the fuel Injectors can get
clogged, causing hesitation and
stalling because of reduced gas
flow. Use gasoline with effec-
tive cleansers.
*Get better mileage with smart
driving habits. Don't Idle In the
supermarket lot or while waiting
for a friend. Turn off the engine
and restart when you're ready
to go.

News from Wewahitchka Elementary
By Linda Whitfield


Idiotic Expressions
As I was introducing the sto-
ry, The Big Orange Splot to my
third grade class, I remarked that
it was full of 'idiomatic expres-
sions' like "bats in the belfry",
"flipped his wig", etc. Since the
lesson was not necessarily about
idiomatic expressions, I said no
more about it while we were read-
ing silently. After the class fin-
ished, Steven Pippin raised his
hand and said, "Miss Linda, you
were right, this story is full of 'idi-
otic expressions'."
Sound Instruments in Second
Grade
The second grade classrooms


of Miss Joyce Quinn and Mrs.
Sue McDaniel have been studying
'sound'. As an outside project, the
students have been making
sound instruments like drums
and cymbals. Chris Nelson made
a really clever tambourine using
pie tins. Hope the teachers have
some earmuffs.
Snow White and the Seven
Dwarfs
The students in Mrs. Pam
Sumner's class and. Ms. Diane
Atchison's classes are practicing
for their production of Snow
White and the Seven Dwarfs. The
play will be presented on Thurs-
day, January 30. Time an-


nounced later.
Science Fair Dates
The WES Science Fair will be
held on February 12, 13, and 14.
Mark your calendars. This is a
week later that it was originally
intended.
Mr. Kelley Says...
Mr. Kelley would like to in-
form all parents and students
that only Nerf balls may be
brought to school. No exceptions.
Others will be confiscated by Mr.
Kelley.
Parents, please help us with
this problem. Several accidents
have occurred that could have
been prevented by playing with


only Nerf balls.

ONCE UPON A TIME
ONCE UPON a time there was a fearful reverence toward
God's Word. Even among those in this country who had no
faith in it, it was a book to command respect. Those in the
family of God upheld it and contended for it, often at the ex-
pense of their physical well-being. But that was once upon a
time. Yet, we still read, "He that rejected me and receiveth
not my words hath one that judgeth him. The words that I
have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day" (John
12:48).
ONCE UPON a time marriage was a lifetime commitment
between two people of the opposite sex and divorce and ho-
mosexuality were to be abhorred among God's people. Mar-
riages were not without problems but respect for God's Word'
caused a solving of those problems rather than a separation
and divorce. But that was once upon a time. Yet, God's word
still says, "And I say unto you, whosoever shall put away his
. wife except it be for fornication, and shall marry another,
committeth adultery" (Matthew 19:9).
ONCE UPON a time women in God's family were happy to
be women and looked forward to being wives and mothers, in
submission to their own husbands. Home, family, mother
and dad were terms to warm the heart. Meals were shared,
recreation came from the home, and conversation was en-
joyed by the whole family unit. Pornography, profanity, and
graphic sex were not brought into the home via TV, slick
magazines, and hard rock music. Home was the haven
where body, mind, and soul were fed wholesome food and
principles of right and wrong were distinctly taught. Love
was there, but the kind that exercised proper discipline. But
that was once upon a time, yet, the Bible still holds these
scriptures: "Wives, submit yourselves unto your own hus-
bands as unto the Lord, for the husband is the head of the
wife even as Christ is the head of the church... Husbands
love your wives,'even as Christ also loved the church..."
(Ephesians 5:22-25). "Children obey your parents in the Lord
for this is right. Honor thy father and mother..." (Ephesians
6:1-2). In addition read I Timothy 2:1-6, Titus 2:1-6, and
Ephesians 6:4.
ONCE UPON a time modesty was a command taken seri-
ously by the people of God. At that time I Timothy 2:9-10
was read and believed by true and faithful members of the
church. Public nudity was looked upon as vile and sinful.
Magazine and newspaper advertisements were not repulsive
to God fearing people. Women who professed to be children
of God would not have dared to don the two most intimate
articles of underclothing, now dyed in bright colors, splash a
little water on them, parade in public before lustful eyes, and
think themselves modest in so doing! But that was once
upon a time. Have you read your Bible lately??? 'THUS
SAITH THE LORD, STAND YE IN THE WAYS AND SEE, AND
ASK FOR THE OLD PATHS, WHERE IS THE GOOD WAY,
AND WALK THEREIN, AND YE SHALL FIND REST FOR
YOUR SOULS" (Jeremiah 6:16). Why, oh why does it have to
be ONCE UPON A TIME???? -Martha Bentley

beaches a length of 12 inches, it
should be cut or pinched back,
leaving four leaves on each shoot.
'his operation should be contin-
ied until about September 10,
but no later. Because poinsettias
begin to set buds as days become
shorter, pruning after September
.0 may reduce flower production.
Poinsettias will grow in a
wide range of soils sand,
nuck, marl, and clay. But, they
lo need fertilizer. Apply a com-
plete, balanced analysis mix,
such as 8-8-8, three times a year
- when growth starts in the
spring, again in June, and finally
n the late fall, after the bracts
have set. This last application
promotes large bracts with showy
color. Apply one-and-a-half
pounds of 8-8-8 per 100 square
feet or if they are individually set
n container, apply two or three
tablespoons per plant each time
you fertilize.
