Money for Bricks but None for Beds
Civic and government leaders of Gulf County have been
expressing concern over the fact that the State of Florida has
built a prison facility north of Wewahitchka, and the institu-
tion is still sitting empty while the State continues to turn
criminals out on the streets for lack of prison room.
Of course, this situation has stirred the ire of county lead-
ers who worked non-stop for nearly a year to get the prison
approved and built here in Gulf County, with the expectation
of creating some 300 new jobs. While the prison buildings
were being constructed, several classes were under way to
train guards to man the new institution.
"We've got a full compliment of correctional officers trained
and waiting to go to work in the new facility," Hub Norris of
Wewahitchka, told Department of Corrections Secretary Harry
Singletary in a meeting about two weeks ago. Norris, an insti-
gator and supporter of the prison and its construction, has
been one of the leaders to get the doors open and correctional
officers to work.
Singletary offered to make room for some of the trained
correctional officers until the Gulf County center can be
opened. The DOC Secretary told a civic delegation at the re-
cent meeting. 'We have the Gulf County prison, one in Colum-
bia County and an addition at Raiford we can't open because
we don't have the money to operate them. The budget cut has
affected us that much," Singletary said.
Well, Singletary's explanation sort of set the Gulf County

IS MONEY [A LACK OF] THE PROBLEM?
This week, however, The Star learned there is money be-
ing spent on other prisons in the vicinity of Gulf County,
which is being used for strictly cosmetic purposes.
A source contacted The Star this week to report that the
Holmes County Correctional Institution, is currently having a
cosmetic brick facing built on all the concrete block buildings
at the two-year-old facility, while the new beds in Gulf and Co-
lumbia Counties remain vacant, for lack of money.
This information was passed along to prison supporters
this week, but no reaction has been forthcoming as yet. The
explanation that the local prison, with its much-needed jobs
is sitting vacant because of a reported lack of funds to operate
it while another facility is receiving a cosmetic facade put on
its buildings, will probably cause a furor among Gulf County
With Legislative leaders and the Secretary of the DOC pre-
senting the excuse that there is not money to open Gulf's
prison while another gets a decorative brick face lift, local
shakers and movers will more than likely be shaking and
moving among state government agencies in just a few days.

Vote Tuesday to Drag Out
At the urging of property
owners on St. Joseph Peninsula
and in the Cape San Blas area,
the Gulf County Commission will
attempt to put the brakes on the
county's Comprehensive Plan fi-
nal approval, which narrowly es-
caped going to an administrative
hearing Tuesday of this week.
Property owners in the coast-
al development say the desires of
the Department of Community Af-
fairs for density regulations
would depress the value of the
property by at least half and
cause the County to lose thou-
sands of dollars in tax revenue.
'The Peninsula property is
Gulf County's largest producer of
taxes, with the exception of the
paper mill," attorney Tom Gibson
told the Board.
Port St. Joe attorney and de-
veloper, William J. Rish acted as
spokesman for a delegation from
the Peninsula, pleading with the
Commission to try "some hard
negotiations for two or three
weeks" to get some liberalization
from DCA on the housing density
County attorney, Bob Moore,
who, along with Larry Wells, ad-
ministrative assistant, has done
most of the negotiating with DCA
secretary, William Sadowski,
warned the group the County can
stand to lose more' than it gains
by resisting. "Sadowski- doesn't.
bend in these talks. He pretty
much says how he wants to see
things and stands pat," Moore
told the Board and the audience.
Wells said, 'You negotiate
when you get in his ,office and he
In spite of Sadowski's de-
scribed adamancy, both reported
that the "1,000 Friends of Flori-
da" were having more input to
Gulf County's future than either
the DCA or Gulf County.
Moore said the state-wide en-
vironmental activists would pro-
hibit any building at all on the
Bay side of the Peninsula.
TOSS OUT CRUMBS
Gulf County faced an admin-
istrative hearing Tuesday on their
position with the Comprehensive
Plan, but the hearing was can-
celled only hours before it was to
begin, and re-scheduled for late
March if total agreement cannot
be reached by that time. Rish and
his delegation want the County to
use that time trying to work out a
more liberal designation for the
Peninsula. Rish said he felt the
DCA was in trouble all over the
state because of their tough atti-
tude toward growth and were
susceptible to possibly listening
to some sort of reason.
Wells said the DCA tossed-
Gulf County a few crumbs of con-
ciliation just before the hearing
deadline Tuesday. "I reported
what they would be at the last
meeting," Wells said. "Now they
have put them in writing and
made some more changes since
our last talks together."
Notably, Wells said DCA had
approved a density of two dwell-
ing units per acre on the Bay
side, less land designated as wet-
lands. The word "less" reduces
the number of dwellings which
can be built.
On the Gulf side, the DCA
stuck with the three units per
acre, but again inserted the word
"less" again, effectively reducing
the amount of development.
A maximum of two units per
acre was applied to Indian Pass,
again, less property identified as
The DCA suggested rules also
call for an immediate moratorium
on the subdivision of land within
these areas until the non compli-
ant plan can be amended to in-
corporate the stipulated settle-
ment agreement. Wells felt this
stipulation wouldn't affect Gulf
much, since most property was
sold by metes and bounds, rather
than in subdivisions.
The property owners still
were leery of the statement and
wanted the Countyto oppose it.
WANT "GROSS", NOT "NET"
"Other counties along the
Gulf have held out for what we
want and have been successful in
'their quest," Rish pointed out, as
he made a last ditch effort to per-
suade the Commission to resist
the commands of DCA.
The Commission finally
agreed to go along with the dele-
gation and make an attempt to
protect the "rights" of the Penin-
sula property owners. It wasn't
easy however. Attorney Moore ad-
vised the Commission that if the
matter went to court, it could get
expensive. That scared off Com-
missioners Charles Fortner and
Nathan Peters, Jr., who took the
position that the County didn't
need to spend the money.
Commission chairman Billy
Traylor, and members, Al Ray
and Ed Creamer decided the day
by assuming the position that
DCA didn't have any business
causing private property to be-
come useless without reimburs-
ing the owners for their costs in-
The Commission will now
spend two to three weeks at-
tempting to negotiate further with
Sadowski, then possibly hold
public meetings to feel out the
pulse of the residents of the
county. 'We don't need to just
cave in to 1,000 Friends!" Rish
Board Votes 4-1 to Reduce County's Work Force
The Gulf County Commission
struggled with the matter of re-
ducing forces for nearly an hour
Tuesday night, before finally vot-
ing, 4-1, to lay off seven people by
The only thing still undecided
about the lay-off is the manner in
which to select those whose jobs
will be terminated.
With county work forces re-
cently voting to accept the Public
Employees Union to represent
them in employment matters, the
Commission has asked the union
negotiator to suggest a method of
reducing the forces, even though
the union and the County do not
have a contract yet.
The union has been asked to
determine if the reduction should
be strictly by seniority from both
the Road Department and Mos-
quito Control, or from the Mos-
quito Control Department alone.
The reduction in forces is be-
ing caused by the Board contract-
ing the county's solid waste col-
lection and disposal. The
Mosquito Control Department for-
merly had this responsibility.
TOO MANY MEN
Newly appointed director of
the Department, Bill McGee, ad-
vised the Board at their last meet-
ing that the Department had at
least two men more than it need-
ed at the present time. He sug-
gested an immediate cut of forc-
es, but the Board decided to wait
until they made the reduction of
surplus labor as a result of the
solid waste contract.
Nathan Peters, Jr., didn't go
along with the rest of the Com-
mission, wanting the County to
put the men to work "doing some-
thing". Peters wanted to more or
less make work for the men to do,
but McGee pointed out that the
tasks Peters wanted done have
been historically performed by
Flip Gentry, representing the
Mosquito Control work force, ob-
jected to the cut in work force,
saying everyone had plenty of
work to do. 'We stay busy," he
Sheriff Al Harrison pointed
out that the County will need a
litter control officer after the con-
tractor assumes his solid Waste
duties. 'We're going to have a big
problem with garbage when this
happens," Harrison said.
Commissioner Ed Creamer
pointed out that the litter control
officer wouldn't do any good. "I
have a stack of cases this high
and we can't get the courts to do
anything about them," he said.
Harrison countered that a lit-
ter control officer would be depu-
tized by his department and
would arrest people seen littering.
'There is a difference," the Sheriff
said. "If we see a person littering,
we can make an arrest and a case
to prosecute the person," he said.
CITY GOING OWN WAY
Port St. Joe. street superin-
tendent Frank Healy was present
at the meeting, and pointed out
that the City was going to experi-
ment with collecting its own solid
waste, storing it in the compactor
and hauling it to the Bay County
incinerator, rather than use the
County's contractor. 'We can do
the work cheaper than your con-

Beaches, Highland View
Water Rates Adjusted
The Gulf County Commission took the advice of the
Rural Water Association Tuesday night, and altered
rates for the Beaches and Highland View water districts.
The state agency said the two systems had two prob-
lems. They were not charging enough for water deliv-
ered to the customer and they had no provisions to pay
for maintenance to the systems.
Rick Herndon, with Rural Water suggested a full-
time maintenance man be employed and rates adjusted
to pay for the service. "You're selling water for just
about what you are paying for it now," Herndon told the
As a result of his study of the two systems, Herndon
recommended that Highland View customers be as-
sessed an extra $2.50 per month for maintenance and
Beach system customers have their minimum reduced
from 3,000 to 2,000 gallons and a rate of $3.00 per
1,000 be charged for all water used over the minimum.
The Commission adopted the suggestions Tuesday.
Customers on the systems will see the new charges on
their March water bills.

PAGE TWO THURSDAY, JANUARY 30, 1992
We're glad Yoshio Sakurauchi, speaker of Japan's House of
Representatives said, "American workers don't work hard
enough. They don't work but demand high pay."
Yoshlo's statement has done more than any number of state-
ments, urgings, suggestions or threats by Americans could have
done to call attention to the need to buy American.
Yoshio did more to cement American support behind Ameri-
can products than did the tour of President George Bush and
the presidents of the big three automobile companies.
High-ranking Japanese have made these or similar state-
ments in the past, but never with the same powerful reaction
that Yoshio's words made. Japan's press and their manufactur-
ing officials have long been baiters of America and its work ethic,
but no groundswell of objection has been heard from our people.
Yoshio was only doing and saying what other Japanese have
said before him. But, he happened to say It when Americans
were being put out of work right and left.
We want to thank Mr. Sakurauchi for putting his foot in his
mouth. It resulted in several large purchases of Japanese ma-
chinery to be canceled and placed with American companies ...
where the orders should have been in the first place.
Late last week, Yoshlo's statements were beginning to back-
fire on him in Japan. The speech had the effect to stir up the
"Buy American" chants all across the nation; a chant which will
hardly stop at the edge of the Japanese car dealerships. As a re-
sult the Japanese, those who are worried so much about losing
face, are in the middle of a giant apology movement. The nation's
leaders have suddenly heard the giant of America become con-
cerned with his place in the world economic picture. Now, Japan
is the worried nation-worried that the "Buy American" slogan
will continue to grow and the Japanese share of the American
market will start shrinking.
An article in the papers Friday, showed a Ford Thunderbird
and a Lincoln on a showroom floor in Japan. The Thunderbird
was listed at $40,000. The Lincoln was listed at $50,000. That's
twice the price of the two cars in the United States. One has to
assume the high price is caused by tariff duty assessed on an
American automobile by the Japanese government. The Japa-
nese automobile gets on the floor at the regular price.
Articles in magazines and newspapers late in the week point-
ed out that both nations need each other for trade, since both
are the best customer of the other.
We don't blame the Japanese people for not purchasing an
American-made automobile which is being sold at twice the
American price. This is how the Japanese government is putting
the shaft to American industry. Where an item collides with a
Japanese product, the tariff is Jacked up, making the American
product too expensive ... absurdly expensive.
If we're going to trade with Japan, or anyone, the same tariff
rules should apply. If Japan, or any other nation, slaps a 100%
-tariff on any item, we should place the same tariff on the same
item coming into our country.. Then we'd both be dealing with
"apples or oranges". Too, with such a tariff. hung on the price
tag, those Japanese automobiles may not seem quite so well
built or well appointed.
Sentences handed down to two child molesters here in Port
St. Joe have elicited some unusually stiff reactions by many of
our citizens. There has been a vehement opposition to the sen-
tences given to the two men involved in molesting the 12-year-
old girl. Of course, we should all be concerned about the moles-
tation of a 12-year-old girl. There would be something wrong
with us if it didn't stir our ire.
As usual, there is more to the case than meets the eye. Still,
the perpetrators didn't get sentences near stiff enough, but they
were as stiff as the law would allow, under the circumstances.
The mother of the victim moved from Gulf County several
months ago and took her child with her. She wanted to get her
child away from the environment which spawned the molesta-
When it was learned the mother would not come back to Gulf
County and the victim had refused to testify against the defen-
dants-the victim was the only witness-the courts had no case
against the defendants. Actually, if the men had not entered
guilty pleas to lesser charges, there would have been no way to
prosecute them on any charge.
As it was, they pled guilty to the charges they were sentenced
for and the sentence in one case was as stiff as it could be. In
the other case, a very little slack was cut because it was the first
time the defendant had been in trouble.
That's the reason the sentences were so light.
The whole thing started
about two years ago. And the sad
part is I remember so well how
good I felt back in those days.

I went in to get my choleste- -

Flash Gordon Had Tele-Vision In His Spaceship 50 Years Ago
THERE WAS A time back in
the 30's and 40's, when a comic
book character by the name of
Flash Gordon sailed through the
universe with the greatest of ease
on his rocket ship, fighting off all
kinds of monsters and space
This was in the days before
we even had television, micro-
wave ovens or velcro;
Flash Gordon was a REAL
spaceman who hopped Into his
rocket ship and blasted off to
planets everywhere. He was even
more mobile through space than
was the Starship Enterprise.
The thing about Flash was
that he would either stun or kill
his enemies with a ray pistol
which would shoot more times
than one of the old-time western
cowboys' "six" shooters.
Roy Rogers could shoot his
gun, almost continuously,
throughout a Saturday afternoon
matinee and never re-load. But,
Flash could fire off his ray gun,
which would shoot out bolts of
.lightning, and never re-charge,
re-load, replace, or whatever it is
you do with ray guns once they
run out of their bolts of energy.
THE BOY DOWN the street
with which I always played, had a
garage in his back yard with a
huge mulberry tree growing up
right beside it We'd climb that
mulberry, tree to the top of the
garage, get over on top. straddle
the hip at the top of the roof, and
that was our Flash Gordon space
I suppose we traveled back'
and forth to Mars at least a Jillion
times on our garage-spaceship.
In those days in the late '30's,
we didn't dare think about such
unbelievable things as television,
radar, cordless telephones, fiber
optics, or instant oatmeal. I don't,
know what we fueled our garage-
rocket with, but it wasn't the so-,
phisticated fuels used today.
Whatever Flash Gordon was us-
ing, that was what we were using.
Superman came on the scene;
about that time in the comic
books and added to the mystical
absorption with things in space
-which Flash had been revealing
to our impressionable minds for
at least 10 years or so.
THAT WAS HEADY stuff for
kids just getting old enough to
learn to read. Of course, it helped
us to learn to read, too. A fellow
couldn't keep up with the adven-
tures of Flash Gordon and Super-
man if he couldn't read.
Kids of my era grew up on
Flash and Superman and Bat-
man, who was a different breed,
but he came from the planet
earth and stayed there.
Dick Tracy came along with
his two-way wrist radio/TV about
the time the 12-inch round tube
black and white TV sets came on
the market But that was all mod-
Flash and Superman had all
that stuff before we even thought
of it here on Earth.

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY. JAN. 30. 1992
John Wayne Is Alive
Almost everyone knows that John Wayne, the movie star, is
dead. There is another John Wayne, however, who should be
dead, yet he lives today and, to me, is a much greater hero and
man than John Wayne the movie actor ever was.
In .case you missed it in the news, let me briefly tell you
about John Wayne Thompson (named after John Wayne, the ac-
,tor), the 18-year-old high school senior from Hurdsfield, N.D.,
and.what happened to him on January 11, 1992.
.,.John and his family live in a cream-colored ranch house at
the end of a dirt road that is surrounded by endless fields of
grain, hogs and cattle. As a matter of fact, the family owns 1,600
acres which they farm and their house sits almost in the middle.
It is located some distance from the town of Hurdsfield, N.D.
,According.to several articles I read, John was home alone on
Saturday, January 11th, preparing to load grain, when his arms
were caught in a power takeoff and ripped off at the shoulders.
That's right, both arms. One minute an 18-year-old is standing
there physically sodnd- and the next minute both arms are gone,
pulled off at the shoulders,.
After much thought I must admit that if it had been me in-
stead of John there that day, someone would have come home
and found me dead at the scene of the accident. That's not what
happeried 'to John Wayne Thompson, because he's made of
tougher stuff. John kept his head and did what had to be done.
After the accident John made his way to the house, located
about 100 yards away, but was unable to open the sliding glass
patio door because it was locked. He immediately walked to the
attached garage and somehow opened a screen door leading into
the house. He raced inside and kicked in the door leading to the
den, the only room with a push-button phone. He then knocked ,,
the phone off the hook, grabbed a pencil in his teeth and
punched his cousin's number as he lay on the floor-in his ow0n
blood. It was, according to all accounts, the only number he
could remember and Hurdsfleld doesn't' have 911.
John's 17-year-old cousin, Tammy, was also home alone
when the call came. After realizing that it was her cousin and it
was an emergency, she called for an ambulance and then called
her mother who worked close by and she and her mother made
their way to John' house where they found him kneeling over the
bathtub so blood wouldn't mess up the floor.
Tammy and her mother, Renee, stated that John started cry-
ing when they arrived, but it seemed to.be from relief at their ar-
riyal. "I have no arms," he told them. He was concerned that his
dad was going t worry because he had left him there alone and
he, apologized about having to kick down the door to gain en-
trance to the house. According to Renee and Tammy, John re-
fnained coherent the whole time, until the ambulance arrived
some 30 minutes later.
John has been described as a quiet 18-year-old who is lika-
ble, friendly and helpful. He is said to believe in heavy metal mu-
sic, the flag and his family.
The last article I read stated that John's arms have been reat-
tached in a series of surgeries and he is expected to regain use of
his arms, barring infections, at. least from the elbows up. My
prayer is that John regain full use of his arms and hands and
lives a full and happy life.
"He told me he didn't want to die," said John's father, Larry
Thompson, at a news conference after the accident. "He's quite a

More About Feeding
Them Food Groups
,' *C Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.
Basic nutrition includes dairy products, grains, vegetables and
meats. Children should learn that these are the building blocks you
use to build good muscles, strong bones, healthy teeth and general
It is not necessary to serve each food group at each meal but
over two to three days, all the good groups should be included.
Family meals should be planned and not thrown together hap-
hazardly. With planning, you can shop more economically and end
up with more nutritious meals for less money. It is often possible to
use something left over from one day and include that in creative
ways the next day if you plan ahead.
When both parents work, it helps to cook ahead. The cooking
can be done when there is time available and the food will be ready.
Do not turn to fast foods or frozen pizza because meal preparation
time is short.
Above all, plan so the family sits down and eats together. The
benefits from such a simple thing as a family mealtime are numer-
ous. Infants should be included with the family at meals as soon as
possible, but if an infant is irritable and fussy, do not let him ruin
the meal for everyone. Under that condition separati,"- is your sal-
Things to consider along with meal plans include working to
keep food fat and sugars low in the diet Broil and bake instead of
fly. Crossed skillets may be the culinary sign of the south, but we
will all be more healthy if we can bake or broil and not fry.
When family finances are a problem, it is much better to plan a
nutritious diet for the whole family and fit infants and children into
the overall diet than to spend the money on special baby foods. A
small food grinder will be a good investment and money saver.
Mothers should not chew foods to then feed to babies. This
practice needs to be discouraged on all levels. It is unsanitary and
exposes the baby to all manner of adult germs he doesn't need to
Another helpful thing for family nutrition and finances is the
family garden. Fresh foods from the garden do not lose nutrients
before being eaten. They are readily available and relatively inex-
pensive. Gardens can help instill good work habits-and a sense of
being responsible in children. Watching and helping things grow
helps to build character.

dren of Gabe Wood and Trudie

Rotarian Pat Floyd gave the
Port St. Joe Club a short course
in bankruptcy proceedings which
an individual may use to avoid
paying an accumulation of bills.
Floyd Identified three differ-
ent forms of bankruptcy, all of
which must be initiated in federal
courts. "Bankruptcy proceedings
are usually brought on by a firm
or person owing more money
than he can pay in a reasonable
length of time," Floyd said'
"Some bankruptcies can be
caused by a debtor forcing a com-
pany into bankruptcy before it
gets to.the point where a creditor
might be able to collect a reason-
able portion of what is owed him
due to selling off assets, or other
causes," Floyd said.
Bankruptcies come in three
varieties, according to the speak-
er. There Is Chapter 7, Chapter.
11 and Chapter 13. Chapter 7
usually results In a liquidation of
assets with creditors receiving the
proceeds on a pro-rata basis.
This results In a dissolution of
Chapter 11 is the type most
used by commercial companies,
and usually is merely a method of
protection from creditors while a
firm or person pays off his debts
as he Is able, continuing to oper-
ate and do business under a reor-
Chapter 13 is another form of
reorganization, keeping creditors
away while making arrangements
to pay debts. This is the form
used most frequently by individu-
als, with the courts or appointed
persons managing the individuals
affairs in an attempt to get him
back on a sound financial basis.
A person's home is exempt
from bankruptcies in all three
methods of debt payment. Other
exemptions include alimony and
child support payments.
Being in bankruptcy doesn't
prohibit a business from borrow-
ing money, but it closely regu-
lates the transaction.
Guests of the club were Bill
Crabbe of Columbia, Mo., and
Wayne Pate of Port St. Joe.

SWHY A GOLD CROWN?
You normally associate gold
crowns with kings or queens.
But the average person can
have a gold crown also not on
his head but in his mouth. And it
will probably be a lot more prac-
tical than the king's head piece.
Cast gold crowns cover the
cusps (chewing surface) of back
teeth entirely as well as three or
-more other surfaces. They fit
over the remaining portion of a
prepared tooth. Crowns are used
to restore proper tooth form and
contours for the correct biting
function when much of the tooth
is extensively damaged.
Gold is an ideal restorative
material for use in reforming the
shape and function of a tooth. In
fact, of all restorative materials,
gold is the strongest and most
long-lasting. There are other rea-
sons for the use of gold as well
Gold can provide maximum
resistance against the forces of
chewing on tooth surfaces.
Fluids in the mouth cannot af-
fect gold. Gold will not shrink or
expand once it has been ce-
mented into the prepared sur-
face. Breakage of the restora-
tion is less likely.

Keep Indoor Plants Healthy
Heating Systems Can Be Hard On Potted Plants Moved Inside
By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
The term "house plants" is of-
ten used to characterize a group
of plants suitable for indoor cul-
ture. However, this term doesn't
accurately describe this group of
plants. They areoutdoor plants
which have been planted in a pot
and cultivated indoors. Most have
been grown in green houses un-
der ideal growing conditions.
When these plants are placed in
homes, they are confronted with
diverse growing conditions such
as low light and dry air. The fol-
lowing are hints on how to keep
plants in your home healthy, par-
ticularly during winter.
All plants must have light.
However, they differ greatly in the
amount they need. Plants with
highly colored leaves, flowering
plants and succulents grow best

*"Hydroplaning" happens on a
road that has accumulated wa-
ter on it. When a car is traveling
at excessive speed, the tires
may lose traction and "float" on
top of the water. To avoid hydro-
planing: make sure'tire tread is
deep enough and slow down.
*Many auto repairs could be
avoided with proper mainte-
nance. One road check turned
up a lot of cars with low tire
pressure. And more than half
the cars were low and very
low on oil!

when placed in an area where
they receive full sunlight. Others
like ferns, philodendrons and
many other foliage plants grow
well in indirect light. Learn about
the specific plants you are grow-
ing and place them in a portion of
your home which provides the
best light for their needs. Artifi-
cial lighting can be used to sup-
plement or replace natural light.
Plants grown in pots are often
over watered, while a few may be
under watered. Try to water as
the plant needs it. The most ac-
curate gauge to follow is to water
when the potting soil becomes
dry to the touch. Stick your finger
into the mix up to the first joint;
if it is dry at the tip, you need to
water. Apply enough water until
it runs out of the bottom of the
pot. Second, it guarantees that
the bottom two thirds of the pot
is properly watered. Don't allow
the pot to stand in water too long.
Empty the drip saucer.
Winter heat in homes is often
very hard on plants. The best
temperature for most plants Is
from 65 to 75 degrees during the
day, and 55 to 65 degree night
temperature. Avoid placing plants
near heat sources.
Humidity or moisture in the
air is necessary and beneficial to
most plants. A 40 to 60 percent
relative humidity is ideal, yet this
can't be provided in homes dur-
ing winter, as heating systems
dry out the air. To increase the
indoor humidity from time to
condition of very low light, the
frequency of fertilization should
be reduced. Many problems asso-
ciated with growing plants in-
doors are erroneously attributed
to insufficient fertilizer. Poor
growth is usually due to some
other factor, such as insufficient
Plants do not like locations
which expose them to cold or hot
air. They also suffer from gas
fumes and products of incomplete
combustion, which makes fresh
time, syringe the plant's foliage
with a fine spray of water. Anoth-
er method of increasing the hu-
midity is placing the pots on grav-
el which is covered with water.
Place the pots on the pebbles, be-
ing certain that the bottoms are
not sitting in the water. Plants
will furnish their own humidity

tilized every two to three months.

ASCS Sets Disaster Payment Program for
Compensation of Lost or Damaged Crops
The Agricultural Stabiliza-
tion and Conservation Service
will administer a crop disaster
assistance program to compen-
sate eligible producers fort crop
losses caused by drought, flood,* \
-and other natural disasters in
either 1990 or 1991.
To be eligible, producers
with crop insurance must have
had losses greater than 35 per-
cent. Producers without crop in-
surance must have had losses
greater than 40 percent.
Program applications may
be filed from February 3
through March 13.
The 1990-91 crop disaster
program provides cash pay-
ments for production losses on
participating program crops of
wheat, feed grains, upland cot-
ton, extra long staple cotton,
and rice; nonparticipating pro-
gram crops; peanuts, soybeans,
sunflowers, sugar beets, sugar-
cane and tobacco; and all com-,
mercial nonprogram crops.
Producers who intend to file
should begin to assemble their
records now, so they will be
ready when the program opens.
Farmers will receive a special
mailing with specific informa-
tion on the program this month.
If a producer does not receive
the disaster program informa-
tion ih the mail by February 3,
he or she should call the County
A producer may not file on
one crop on a farm, for one year
and a different crop on the same
farm for the other. However, the
producer may request benefits
for 1990 on one farm and for
1991 on another farm.
Disaster payments should
be \computed according to the
1990 farm bill, and expects to
begin issuing payments to farm-
ers by April 16. Further details

A TWISTED WORLD
IT WAS a horrible and ungodly command that
Pharaoh issued when he commanded the male
babies to be killed (Exodus 1:22).
Helpless innocent babies have been victims of
brutality on so many occasions.
Jesus showed his love for little children when
he took them up in his arms and blessed them
(Mark 9:36, 10:16). He used them as an example
of humility and purity that we should imitate
God demonstrated his concern even for the
unborn when he decreed punishment upon a man
who would injure a woman with child and cause a
-miscarriage or premature birth (Exodus 21:22,
Yet today in our society, babies are killed by the
millions by what some call "child abuse" and many
more by abortion.
Have you notice those advocates of the evil
practice of abortion prefer to call themselves
"pro-choice" instead of "pro-abortion" or "baby
killers". That does sound nicer but sin is sin no
matter what nice name you choose to tack on it.
A woman in Illinois sometime ago was brought
before the judge and convicted for prenatal child
abuse and neglect because of her use of cocaine
before her child was born. The judge in the case
compared her behavior as being as irresponsible
as one who would give razor blades to a baby in a
crib. Yet if this woman had chosen to abort her
baby somewhat earlier, it would be considered her
choice and been perfectly legal!
Motherhood used to be esteemed. People
mourned and were sympathetic to a woman who
miscarried. In our society it seems killing babies is
getting more popular.
It is suggested that people read Luke 1:41, 4.
When Mary greeted Elizabeth "the babe" leaped in
the womb of Elizabeth. Maybe "fetus" sounds nicer
if you're planning to kill it, but the Word of God
calls the unborn a "babe". That settle it!!!
