Senate Budget Contains Funds to Open Prison


Senator Vince Bruner, D-Ft. Walton
Beach, told The Star Wednesday morning
that he had been successful in getting an
amendment passed on the senate budget to
provide funding for opening the new Gulf
County prison. Senator Bruner proposed
elimination of vacant positions within the
Department of Corrections and the transfer
of those funds to operational costs of the
Gulf County prison.
Senator Bruner. stated, "I am optimistic
that this item will be included in the cbm-
promise budget reached with the house


Solid Waste


since it simply involves the transfer of
funds and no new funds are necessary. I in-
tend to continue making every effort to see
that funds are available to operate this pris-
on," the Senator said.
In other budget issues, the Senator was
also successful in passing an amendment to
reduce top level salaries with the savings go-
ing directly into the education budget. He is
committed to restoring funding for educa-
tion to the 1991-92 budget levels prior to
recent budget cuts.


Agreement Reached


On How to Handle a Messy Problem


Four representatives of state
agencies were in Port St. Joe Fri-
day in an attempt to create closer
ties of communication between
the county and state agencies.
Mary Helen. Blakeslee of the
Department of Commerce; Steve
Barron with the Department of
Labor; Linda Frohock with the
Department of Community Affairs
and Larry Taylor with the Depart-
ment of Education, explained
their particular expertise and
asked for a statement of problems
the county may have.
GULF HAS THEM
Commissioners Billy Traylor,
Nathan Peters, and Al Ray, out-
lined several problems the
.County had getting answers and
action out of state agencies, espe-
cially when there is more than
one involved.
Commission Chairman Tray-
low gave an instance, saying the
County is just before losing an
$18 million fish farm operation,
which would employ some 200
people, "Because, they can't get
the necessary state permits acted
upon to get into business."
Traylor said the firm is mak-
ing preparations to move to Texas
with their jobs and investment,
where the state has told them to
come ahead and go to work.
"How can Texas do that and
Florida can't?" Traylor asked.
'These people have been trying to
* get permits acted upon since last
October and are no nearer today
than they were then," Traylor


Town Hall

Meeting

Today
U.S. Congressman Pete
Peterson will be in town
today, meeting with inter-
ested citizens to discuss
ideas and receive input
from the voters of his dis-
trict in what he is identify-
ing as a 'Town Hall Meet-
ing".
Of course, this particu-
lar meeting is a "Court
House Meeting," because
that is where it is being
held. Open to the general
public, the Congressman
is presiding over the dis-
cussion-type meeting in
the County Commission
meeting room of the Gulf
County Courthouse.
Scheduled to begin at
5:30 p.m., EST, the hearing
will last for an hour. Eve-
ryone is invited and en-
couraged to attend, wheth-
er or not you have a
y question for the Congress-
man.

After about three months of
intense planning, making studies
and considering' options, both
the County and the City of Port
St. Joe have come to a decision
about what they will do with their
solid waste disposal.
The County will shut down
its operation on February 24 and
Argus Services, Inc., out of Pana-
ma City will take over the duties
of collecting from households,
transporting to the incinerator
apd paying the incinerator fee for
all solid waste generated in the
County with the exception of Port
St. Joe.
Port St. Joe, after a last-
minute special meeting Saturday
morning, with County and Argus
officials, have decided to contin-
ued to collect solid waste as it
has always done.
In Saturday's meeting, the
City cut a deal with the County to
borrow the compactor on Indus-


trial Road, two trailers to trans-
port compacted waste to the in-
cinerator, and the tractor to pull
it with, for a three month trial pe-
riod. In exchange for the equip-
ment, the City will pick up gar-
bage at the County buildings
during the three months, free of
charge.
The City also received a com-
mitment from Argus to use part
of its incinerator volume to bum
the waste at a rate of $25.00 per
ton for three months. After that
time, the City will either make
other arrangements or possibly
contract with Argus to take over
its service.
Both the County and City are
using Argus, mainly, because
they own the excess volume
rights at the Bay County inciner-
ator.
COUNTY LAY-OFF
Tuesday, at their regular
meeting, the Gulf County Com-
mission ratified the deal:with'the
City of Port St. Joe and cut yet
another tie with their old solid
waste system.
The County sent out notices
to seven people that their jobs
would be terminated on February
28. The terminations will be se-
lected on a seniority basis from
employees in both the Mosquito
Control and the Road Depart-
ment.


The lay-off has been a point
of tension among Gulf County
employees for several weeks. The
County has been in touch with
the Government Employees Un-

Lagoon Oysters Coming Back

DNR Presents Several Plans for Limited Harvests


You may be able to get one of those succu-
lent Indian Pass Lagoon raw oysters by spring,
after 4 year's hiatus of having to do without the
caviar of bivalves.
The Department of Natural Resources, after
a year's intense study of the Lagoon waters,
said in a meeting with Indian Pass Oyster Com-
pany Monday that several scenarios can be
worked out to allow limited harvesting from the
embattled Lagoon.
Taking oysters from the Lagoon was banned
by the Department last year, after they had de-
termined that it also supported a high bacteria
count-too high for eating oysters raw taken
from the Lagoon.
In Monday's meeting Bob Thompson of the
DNR offered several plans for limited harvest-
ing, which he presented to Indian Pass owner,
James T. McNeill. McNeill said he was looking
over the plans to see which one would be best
for Indian Pass. 'They're real complicated plans
and we want to look them over thoroughly be-
fore making our decision," he said.
McNeill said one of the most promising


plans calls for opening the Lagoon oyster beds
during the spring and summer months. 'Tests
show there are no problems with bacteria dur-
ing these months," McNeill said. 'The tests dur-
ing the winter months continue to bother
DNR," he continued.
One of the criteria for limited opening is
that the Lagoon will have to be shut down to
harvesting after less rainfall than does Apa-
lachicola Bay, an adjoining body of water.'
'They must shut down after 1.02 inches of rain
during a 24-hour period. We will have to shut
down after .75 of an inch," he said.
DNR has tied high bacteria readings in the
Bay and the Lagoon with heavy rainfall which
tends to wash bacteria-bearing material into
the water.
McNeill was understandably pleased with
the most recent stance by DNR which seems to
want to cooperate and try and help with oyster
production rather than hinder it. He said that
maybe the most recent position would lead to
further solutions to the problem DNR says ex-
ists in the Lagoon.


Going Up
Port St. Joe's Kiwanis Club resumed work on their picnic shed
project behind the Centennial Building this month, and gathered
at the site Saturday to put up the roof trusses for the pavilion,
which is adjacent to a large barbecue pit they constructed two
years ago. In the photo above, Jim Faison, Key Clubber Clay Cox
and Dr. Bob King are shown putting a roof truss in place to be
nailed down. In weeks to come, the Club will put roofing material
on top of the trusses.

Remember?

Do you remember back in 1988 when George Bush was run-
ning for president? Do you remember back in 1990 when Law-
ton Chiles was running for Governor of the State of Florida?
Both candidates had sounded out the electorate and received
back the message that their constituents were desirous of hav-
ing no new taxes during the term of both the President and the
Governor. The two men ran on that platform and won election in
a big way. The "No New Taxes" statement was just what the peo-
ple wanted to hear. George Bush even added a dramatic "Read
My Lipsl" to his pledge of no new taxes. He was emphatic. To be
fair, Chiles was not so adamant.
But, both read the message correctly and both ran on the
premise of carrying out that promise.
Now, it seems as If both are doomed to break that promise
before their first term is over.
J. C. Belin, in speaking before the Chamber of Commerce an-
nual dinner last Monday night, continuously warned those in at-
tendance, 'You are going to face new taxes, so you had best be
on guard." Belin didn't stutter. He said it plain, 'You are going 'to
see new taxes."
Then, as another sub-title under his address, Belin declared
that people were losing faith in the credibility of their elected offi-
cials.
Now the St. Joe Paper Company official is in a position to
have information about both these" subjects-taxes and trust of
elected officials-by virtue of his membership on the state Tax
and Budget Reform Commission. This committee holds public
hearings on the subject of their work, regularly. He says they
continue to hear, "No New Taxes" wherever they hold a hearing.
The people still don't want any new taxes, for whatever reason
they might be considered.
Evidently both George Bush and Lawton Chiles have quit lis-
tening to the mood of the people who must pay these taxes .
and vote. The attitude is still there. It might just be because the
tax payer ... and voter ... is having just as hard a time making
ends meet as is state and federal government. He's not interest-.
ed in keeping the status quo with government spending when he
can't keep up with the necessities at home.


Top of the Heap

The big story of last week was the revelation that children of
the United States don't even come up to the average of students
throughout the world when it comes to the subjects of mathe-
matics and science.
Well the first thing to do is to go on the defensive and declare
that the United States must still be doing something right, to
come up with the most developments, inventions, discoveries
and formulas to make life easier and more livable throughout
the world. It's discovered or developed here in this country and
then produced cheaper in some other nation. The reason for its
being produced cheaper is that the other nation doesn't have to
recover research and development investment when the product
is produced.
Then, we might bluster, our way to the vindication of our po-
sition by asking why the people of the whole world are trying to
get to the United States to live if it's such a backward nation.
Some of us may even reason that learning from books is not the
total yardstick for measuring knowledge and.ability. And, it isn't!
For whatever it's worth, being a free nation with each having the,
ability to rise as high as he or she wants enters into the equa-
tion, also. In fact, this quality, coupled with the ability to reason,
developed through making up our own minds, is probably the
most important equation toward leading to a well-rounded and
accomplished individual. These qualities compliment good
grades in science and mathematics.
We had this same situation come up when the Russians beat
us into space with Sputnik. Then, the entire attention of our
school system turned to emphasizing math and science in the
schools. In the meantime, our nation remained strong and inno-
vative; still attracting the masses of the world with its accomplis-
ments. We saved lives through medical innovations available no-
where else. We developed and improved the micro-chip which is
revolutionizing everything from television to making toothpicks.
If, indeed, our students can't cut the mustard on a competi-
tive level in math and science, we would say it is an American
invention which has done us in. If you take the hand-held calcu-
lators out of the hands of many of the students in math and sci-
ence classes, on all levels, and make them figure out answers
the logic way, not the logic board way, our students would even
be on the top of the heap in math and science, as well as in con-
suming pizza and rock music.

"What's her name?" Leon
flopped down beside me on the
porch.
You know how older brothers
are. You can't tell them anything
They'll Just make fun of you.
'Who's name?"
"'The girl you're thinking
about asking to the Valentine
Banquet at the church."
How did he know that? How
did he know that? HOW DID HE
KNOW THAT? This is the worse
moment of my life
"Have you thought about
sending her a card. You know, a
special card. Girls like that."
"I don't know what you're
talking-"
"The banquet is next Friday.
You need to ask her pretty soon.
You wouldn't want her to think
she was your second or third
choice."
He put his arm on my shoul-
der. "Good luck."
He wasn't laughing. You
know, when he's not beating on
me, Leon is a pretty good big
brother.
A special card. I want a very
special card. "Be My Valentine."
Now, that's dumb. rue got to find
the perfect card. I hope none of the
guys come byl I wish Mr. Cannon
would quit staring at me. Im not
going to steal one of his cards. Do
you reckon he knows? What if he
reads it when Igo to pay for it?
"Kesley, can I help you?"
Mrs. Mitchuml What's she do-
ing in here? She's older than dirt.
And she'll tell my Mother. Nuts.
This is the worst moment of my
life
"No, m'am. I'm just looking-"
'This is the kids' section.
Come around here. I'll show you
where they keep the special
cards. You don't appear to be
.looking for just any old card.
We've got to find 'just the right
one'. You know what I mean."
'Yes, m'am, but I don't want
to trouble---"
She's not even listening. What
if somebody sees us? Is she going
to read every card in that rack?
"Now, if I could call back fifty
years, this is the card. See, It
doesn't have all that yucky love
stuff, it Just talks about always
being special friends forever.
What do you think?"
This is It The special card
How did she know? But what if
Mr. Cannon reads it. He'll know
which card I bought!
I glanced nervously in his di-
rection.
"I tell you what. You give me
your money and go on out like
you couldn't find anything. I'll be
out in just a second. This ain't
none of Mr. Cannon's business."
When she put the sack in my
hand, she leaned down real close.
"Kesley, you promise me you
won't say a word to a living soul
about this. It's our little secret."
I gave her a hug, right there
on the street.
Here she comes. I wonder if
she got the card yet? I've got to do
it today. I don't want her to think
she's my second choice. I don't

. as undependable as my memo-
ry is.
Being cold is not just the op-
posite of being hot. Freezing your
buns off is not the opposite of
sweating. Being cold is not the
opposite of having your air con-
ditioner broken down. Being cold
hurts. It is inescapable if it's all
around you. It can cause your
feet and hands irreparable prob-
lems before you even know they


are in trouble.
I LIVED WHERE it got COLD
in the winter time when I was
just a young boy. If it was outside
and damp, it would freeze. If it
froze, it stayed frozen for a while.
The ground froze, the sidewalks
froze over, the front porch froze.
Now, to get to the part of be-
ing uncomfortable.
Back, when I was a boy,
Momma washed every Wednes-
day. No matter what happened on
Wednesday; blizzard, sandstorm,
rain, hail, or even good weather.
Momma washed on Wednesday.
she washed out on the screened


back porch of our house, using
her old Maytag wringer washing
machine and three tubs of rinse
water.
Did you ever try to get three
number three wash tubs filled
with water with everything frozen
up? It takes some doing.
The little oil boom town
where we lived on the western,
edge of the Tulsa oil pool, was
built about the time Port St. Joe
was rising out of the ashes of the
destruction of Old St. Joseph.
The town was about eight or ten
streets long and about five or six
streets wide.
We lived in town and when


ter came along, the pipes froze
and we didn't have water until
the spring thaw.
THIS IS WHERE Lew Farris
came in to help Momma with her
washing. Lew had a pitcher pump
in his cow lot across the alley
from our house.
Guess who got the job of car-
rying enough water to fill three
number three wash tubs with wa-
ter from that pump-which, inci-
dentally, was frozen too, and had
to be thawed out?
Well, we would start early in
the morning, before school, carry-
ing water in gallon buckets to fill
those tubs. By the time we made
about the third or fourth trip, the
water in the tubs had a coat of
ice on top and our overalls legs


THEN, SINCE THE water
was frozen in the house, we had
to build a fire under an iron wash
pot outside, which was full of ice,
and heat water for the washing
machine.
Most of you know my broth-
er, Will. Will had a knack about
him. You could look right straight
at Will and spy his every move-
ment. He could give you the indi-
cation that he was carrying his
load--or his bucket-and he'd be
goofing off. I have heard of people
who can stand up and sleep, but
I never knew anyone but Will who
could give you the impression of
working, when in reality, he was
resting
He always figured out how we
could share that bucket carrying.

THEN, AFTER Momma fin-
ished her washing, the clothes
were hung outside on the clothes-
line. No clothes dryers in those
days. The clothes would freeze
stiff just as soon as they hit the
outside air and would hang, wav-
ing in the wind, like they had rig-
or mortis. The clothes would not
dry until they thawed out Some-
times that took two or three days.
That was the coldest I have

Phantry

The Joy of Dieting
That's right, I'm dieting again.
Many of you know what led me to this. That constant hungry
feeling, yet feeling full, too. Never getting enough rest, although
you slept eight hours and took a two-hour nap after lunch. And
there's always that faint, out-of-breath feeling when you bend
over to tie your shoes or put your socks on. All of that was hap-
pening to me, and more.
I've been down this road before, but not quite as far as I went
this time. When I stepped on the scales at the doctor's office -
full clothed and the indicator passed the 250 mark, I knew
something had to go.
It's ironic, but at about the same time I stepped on the
scales, my daughter enrolled in a weight loss program. My wife,
thinking about spring, summer and going to the beach, decided
to join my daughter on the weight loss diet. The only thing they
said to me was, "It's really good food, Dad. You should try it."
That was last Sunday. Today marks the seventh day I've been
on the diet and I know most of you won't believe it, but I've lost
close to 10 pounds. If I must be exact, the scales this morning
showed I have lost nine pounds, give or take an ounce, and that's
without exercise. The weather hasn't been fit for man nor beast
lately.
Let me say at the outset that it hasn't been easy, this last
week. If it hadn't been for my wife preparing the menu and pro-
gram each day and joining me at dinner, I probably wouldn't
have made two days. Misery loves company, you know. But, even
at that, I cheated, as, I understand, most people do who go on
diets.
The hardest times were the nights, after I had gone to bed. I
don't care what anyone says, water won't do the trick. I drank
enough water to turn our bed into a waterbed and alMfost did
on several occasions and I was still hungry. It was a deep, rav-,0
enous hunger; one that only nabanana sandwich and a glass of.
milk would satisfy. Well, how about twp banana sandwiches and
a couple of glasses of milk? At least the milk was 2% and the
bread was diet bread!
I realize that a week isn't much time to judge and I may be
premature expounding on the "joys of dieting", but I've made
worse mistakes before. There ig, however, something gratifying
about eating'the right foods in the right amounts. Thomas Jeffer-
son said it best long ago when he said, 'We never repent of hav-
ing eaten too little." Thomas, with all due respect, didn't have to
sit and watch hamburger and french fries, pizza and steak com-
mercials on T.V. like we do.
But, even without the commercials, I stay hungry. I haven't.
licked as many plates since I was a kid and food that I normally
wouldn't touch tastes like chicken 'n dumplins.
As hard as this week has been and it will be in the future, I
must say there are many joys to dieting. There is no question
about it, I feel better, have more energy, require less sleep and, I
may be fooling myself, but my mind seems sharper. Admittedly,
my nerves have been a little on edge for the past week, but over-
all, I'm a different person. And I never thought a piece of diet
toast and a boiled egg could taste so good.
So, here I sit, in the throes of diet and trying to survive. I'm
told that weight loss won't improve my facial features or grow
hair, but I may think it does. Several people have told me, howev-
er, that anything would be an improvement.
By the way, today we had Holy Communion at our church
and the bread and the grape juice was the best I've ever had. But
I wonder why we had to sing hymn #640, Take Our Bread for the
Hymn of Preparation. How did the preacher find out I was diet-
ing?.


City Board Gets Ready for Street Paving

$28,900. Also agreed to ask for


bids to purchase a baler to bun-

In Tuesday night's meeting of
the Port St. Joe City Commission,
the Board began taking steps to
get ready for paving of City
streets which is scheduled to be-
gin around March 1.
The paving contractor, C.W.
Roberts Construction Co., is cur-
rently paving streets in the St.
Joe Beach area and will move to
Port St Joe as that project winds
down.
The Board will meet with
Roberts in the next few days for a
final agreement on changes
which might be affected to allow
the City to get more of what it
wants out of its' paving dollars.
Roberts has suggested some
changes which can be made and
the Commissioners have a few
ideas of their own.
BASEBALL TIME!
Spring is just around the cor-
ner and the Dixie Youth baseball
season is trying to get things
done so facilities will be ready for
the first ball to be thrown out
around April 1.
A delegation composed of
James B. Roberts, Arden Ste-
phens and Lisa Kostic were
present to receive approval of
plans to make some changes in
the playing field areas to accom-
modate young girls' softball and
better provide for the boys' base-
ball programs.
Among those plans were new
lights for one of the fields, which
will be provided by a park grant.
OTHER BUSINESS

-Said they would offer to

posed White City system at the

some help with that."
"WE'RE AVAILABLE"
Blakeslee answered all four
by' saying, "We're available. You
now have our names and our
phone numbers. You can call us
personally with your problems
and we can route them to the
point where they should be intro-

As for the fish farm problem,
Blakeslee said she would person-
ally take on the problem when
she returned to Tallahassee in an
attempt to salvage the operation.
"I have seen information on the
subject, but I don't know how far
along it is at this time."
As for the prison situation,
.she said her committee would
find out if the prison is in the Job
Florida Program at the present


time. "If it is in the program,
you're going to get action on it
soon. If it isn't included, we might
be able to expedite getting it in-

Chocolate -

Not That

Fattening
Chocolate lovers, take heart!
A study published in the Journal
of Medicine indicates that cocoa
butter, the main source of fat in
chocolate, may be less absorbed
by the body than other saturated
fats and even less than corn
oil. an unsaturated fat. .
This .ipans that, when eati ,
a chocolate bar, the amount o0
calories consumed may be less
than the number listed on the
wrapper.
The study was conducted by
the Nutrition Research Depart-
ment of the Hershey Corporate
Technical Center, under the di-
rection of Dr. Stanley M. Tarka,
Jr.,. director of food science and
nutrition. In the study, laboratory
rats were fed cocoa butter excret-
ed more fat than rats fed corn oil.
-In addition, fat stores from
the cocoa butter fed rats coti-
tained a higher percentage of un-
saturated fat, indicating that only
a small amount of cocoa butter is
stored in the body, with less po-
tential to raise blood cholesterol
levels.
Preliminary work conducted
with humans at Pennsylvania
State University supports the re-
sults of this study. Additional.
studies are underway to explain
why cocoa butter has a neutral
effect on blood cholesterol and
will explore whether it has a cho-
lesterol lowering effect.

efforts to making this fund raiser
such a great success.. Everybody
had a good time putting it on and
several of the Lions were over-
heard talking about another one
next year...
At last week's regular meet-
ing, the guest speaker was one
the Club's newest members,
Brian Upton. Brian is the assist-
ant administrator for Gulf Pines
Hospital. Brian gave an interest-
ing talk on the services offered by
the hospital, which include just
about anything that you may
need in the way of hospital care.
Brian also is a good, no make
that great, magician. He pulled
off a couple of card tricks, a rope
illusion, and tore up a newspaper
that opened back up to its origi-
nal condition, right before the
eyes of the Lions. Wonderful
things are in store for the Lions
Club with people like Brian par-
ticipating.

As Seen Through the Eyes of Fifth Graders


As Valentine's Day nears,
everyone is thinking about what
it means to love and to be loved.
The students in Mrs. Betty
Sue Anchor's fifth grade class at
Port St Joe Elementary wish to
share with you what love means
to them.
Audrey Barber. Love is when
two people love each other for
who they are, not what they have
or if they're rich or poor. Some
people take advantage of you if
you're rich, but that's not what
love means. Love is for who you
are, not what you are that's
love.
Nicole Bellinger* Love is a
friendship between people. It
means caring and giving. Some
people have a relationship with
another person or people. On Val-
entine's Day, some loved ones get
or receive candy,, cards, flowers,
and kisses. Some people get to-
gether on Valentine's Day.
Matt Cabaniss: Love is caring


for other people like your parents,
brothers, sisters, and girlfriends
or boyfriends.. Another thing is
giving things, like candy, flowers,
cards and kisses.
Shannon Causey. Love is
when you give and get cards. It is
when you go to visit your rela-
tives. It is kindness and friends.
It is when someone is being good,
and when they're nice and share
something with someone.
Rod Chambers: Love is when
you love you mom, dad, brothers,
sisters, uncles, aunts, grandma,
grandpa and your girlfriend and
maybe your friend.
Anna Duren: Love is when
someone cares about someone
else. It is something in your
heart. You might send a card to
your loved one. Love is also when
you love an animal, plant, etc.
Jim Faison: Love is family to
me; being with my mom and dad
and playing with my dogs. Love is
also sending cards to loved ones
and friends.
George. Jackson: Love is

M.B. Water
Controversy

To the Editor.
As a property owner and wa-
ter system user in Mexico Beach,
I have followed the continuing
controversy over the Reverse Os-
mosis plant proposed for that
community. Because of my back-
ground in water resources and fa-
miliarity with the various state
agencies involved, most of which I
have contacted at some time or
other in the matter, I would like
to inform your readers of some of
my findings.
First, the Department of En-
vironmental Regulation is not
now contemplating any enforce-
ment action against me city lor
the periodic fluoride exceedences.
In fact, I was informed by the
* Drinking Water section admintst-
trator that reverse osmosis would
be a very expensive way to solve
the fluoride "problem" at Mexico
Beach. It would make sense in
the context of a long term solu-
tion if other options were not
available. Such is not the case.
As a state registered profes-
sional geologist, I feel that the al-
ternative of blending the current
water from the Floridian Aquifer
with water from the surficial aq-
uifer is still a viable alternative.
This aquifer is approximately 100
feet thick beneath Mexico Beach
permeable sands. I believe the
city's engineering firm has not
thoroughly investigated this op-
tion.
My studies indicate that two
6-inch diameter wells may be ca-
pable of producing up to 144,000
gallons per day, more than
enough to mix with the water
from the deeper Floridlan Aquifer.
In closing, the users must de-
cide upon the best course of ac-
tion for the future, but certainly
we have the time to make some
intelligent and informed choice.

sioners are. Not only is it going to
cost several people their job, it's
also going to cost a bigger price in
garbage filling'our roadsides and
woods. You can believe -that. So
when you see all that garbage on
the roads and in the woods, you
can thank your County Commis-
sioners for it.
I also wonder why they didn't
let the.people have a say in the
matter. I guess they figured we
didn't have one. At this time you
have one 'commissioner running
the whole County, he's from Dis-
trict 2, and everybody knows it.
The ones on this end of the
County (south end) can't or won't
stand up against him for one rea-
son or another, other than (the)
Commissioner in District 4.
Think about it, people, if Ar-
gus can make money hauling our
garbage, then why can't Gulf
County make money at Itl Ask
one of our commissioners that.
They can't tell'you, I'm:sure. They
would have to ask their Opera-
tions Director. Now there's a
waste of money, if ever there was
one.
The real reason all this is
happening is because County em-
ployees are going UNION. That's
the bottom line. They will deny
this, but they know it's true. Es-
pecially Commissioners in Dis-
'tricts 1, 2, 3, and 5. Ask anybody
who works there, they will tell
you.
I'm sure you have asked
yourself, why spend all that mon-
ey on Compactor and then close
them? Why spend money on new
scales and not use them? Why
have a building built for recycling
and then contract it out? Why
hire a Special Projects Director,
when you won't have anybody to
do any Special Projects. They talk,
about a waste of money, this is a
bigger waste than any. We should
remember these commissioners
at election time, and lay them off,
for good. Because most of them
are nothing more than just Dead-
beats any way. Think about it.
Thank you,
Alvin Germaine

TOGETHER WE ARE STRONG!

We have been using this slogan in our advertising for several months. In
reviewing the 1991 Statement of Condition, it is even more evident that
the statement is true. We are one of the strongest financial institutions
in our area and proud of it. Since 1956, we have endeavored to meet
the financial needs of the residents of this area as well as build a.
strong, safe place for you to save your hard earned dollars.

In 1991, we converted from a mutual to a stock-owned financial institu-
tion. That conversion made us even stronger. Today we exceed every
net worth requirement of the Office of Thrift Supervision and the Federal
Deposit Insurance Corporation. We are proud of that accomplishment
and want you to "know our numbers". We encourage you to compare
our numbers with other financial institutions.

We appreciate your business and look forward to a prosperous 1992.
Remember, "TOGETHER WE ARE STRONG!"
Sincerely

Did you know that the obser-

nates from two ancient customs?
*The pagan festival for the
protection and fertility of the
flocks and their owners.
*The Christian observance of
the martyrdom of a third century
priest named Valentine, who wed
Roman couples against the order
of Emperor Claudius II.
And did you know that flow-

before there were valentines, they
did. (The flower most closely
linked with love is still the rose.)

PORCELAIN COATED
GOLD CROWN


If you have a chipped, dis-
colored, broken, poorly shaped
or badly decayed tooth as
long as the root remains -
there is still hope for restoring
its natural appearance and func-
tion. An artificial crown does the
job.
The veneer crown actually
comprises a jacket of porcelain
fused to gold, cemented in posi-
tion to replace the enamel of the
tooth. It fits over the natural
tooth surface which is prepared
in such a way as to provide a
strong base for the crown.
The cosmetic result of this
procedure is beautiful. Tooth
shade is carefully analyzed and
the shade determined by taking
into account such considera-


tions as stains, grooves, enamel
thickness, complexion and age,
Carefully matched veneer
crowns many times resemble
the adjoining natural teeth so
closely that it possible to fool
even a dental hygienist who is
cleaning the teeth.
Laboratory techniques now
enable us to do marvelous
things with porcelain that were
unthinkable not too many years
ago. Further, porcelain is color
stable. It will not change color
with time.
Prepared as a public service
to promote better dental health.

Valentine Colors
The traditional colors of Val-
entine's Day have special mean-
ings in themselves.
White is the symbol of faith
and purity.
Red is the color of the human
heart, and represents warmth
and emotion.
Who Is Cupid?
This winged cherub played a
key role in Greek and Roman cel-
ebrations. His name was Eros -
so called by the Greeks and he
has remained a symbol of love
throughout the ages.
Doves A Symbol of Love
Why? Possibly because these
members of the pigeon family
mate for life, and share the re-
sponsibility of parenthood. (It has
been said that witches used the
hearts of doves when concocting
their love potions.)
The Heart Still A Symbol
of Love
Throughout history, the heart
has been recognized as the most
vital organ in all living things.
Therefore it is befitting to symbol-
ize it is the core of our emotions.

THE STAR PORT ST. JOE 1992


Phone Companies Running Short of Available Numbers


The growth of cellular
phones, fax machines and dial-up
data lines has used up available
phone numbers at an amazing
rate, says a St. Joseph Telephone
& Telegraph Company represen-
tative. Florida is simply running
out of phone numbers.
And in order to deal with the
problem, a change will be made
in the way long-distance dialing
is handled.
Beginning October 4, 1992,
all 1-plus and 0-plus (operator-
assisted) long-distance calls must
include the area code for calls


made within the same area code,
said Lynda Bordelon, External Af-
fairs Manager for St. Joseph.
"Just use the area code on all
long distance. calls. You really
don't have to worry about where
you are or where you're calling,"
Bordelon said.
For example, under the cur-
rent system of direct-dialed long-
distance calling, a called in Port
St. Joe, The Beaches, or Wewa-
hitchka need only dial 1 plus the
seven-digit number of someone in
Jacksonville, because the area
codes are the same. As of October


4, the caller will also have to dial
904.
The biggest adjustment for
customers, other than an extra
second of dialing time, will be in
reprogramming any speed-dial.
features that contain long-'.
distance numbers within the 904:.
area code. The change may also
affect some fax machines, com-
puter communications programs,
and some security-alarm compa-
nies.
The upcoming change is part
of a statewide plan, under discus-
sion since mid-1991, developed

by representatives of all the tele-
phone companies in the state.
The plan will allow for more
combinations of prefixes, giving
the state several more years of
phone numbers.
"In the 904 area code, we'll be
out of numbers in early 1994 un-
der the present system, but we'll
have enough members to get us
past the turn of the century un-
der the new plan-," said Bordelon.
The dial plan will come in two
phases. The first phase is to ask
customers to dial the area code,
but that's, only a temporary fix. A
second phase, which will go: into
effect in five to 10 years, will in-
clude the creation of new area
codes across the state. The addi-
tional area codes will come gradu-
ally, Bordelon said.
Although the startup date is
nine months away, St. Joseph
wants to encourage people to
start using the new system.
"As of right now, our central
offices are set up to allow custom-
ers to dial long-distance calls
within their home area code both
ways either 1-plus or 1-plus
904. But as of October 4, they've
got to use the area code for all 1-
plus and 0-plus calls or their
calls won't go through," Bordelon.

NOTICE TO



GULF COUNTY



RESIDENTS

Recent action by the Gulf County Board of County Commissioners has resulted in
new rules for garbage and trash collection and disposal. Until now ad valorem tax
payers have borne the expense of all solid waste operations. Approximately 35% of
the county population has paid all of the ad valorem taxes. Each person, family, or
business generates waste and has the responsibility to lawfully dispose of that
waste. The County has negotiated a contract with Argus Services Inc. to collect,
transport, and legally dispose'of all County garbage. Each residence and business
may sign up with Argus to have their garbage collected and disposed of. By closing
the Compactor Stations, and shifting the burden of garbage disposal expense to the
persons who generate it, the County will save over $250,000.00 and provide an eq-
uitable system of payment.


CHANGES
A. Beginning Monday, February 24, 1992 garbage Compactor Stations at Port St.
Joe and Wetappo will be closed. Prior to that time County residents should call Ar-
gus Service at (800) 273-5838 and arrange for weekly garbage pick-up.

B. Changes in Hours of Operation for County Landfill sites:

Florida Power Seeking Rate Increase

Firm Says RequestWill Be First Rate Hike In Eight Years


Florida Power Corporation is
seeking a rate increase the
first such request in eight years -
- that would raise the typical resi-
dential customer's monthly bill
$6.90 by the end of this year, and
another $1.64 before the end of
next year.
During the last decade, how-
ever, while the Consumer Price
Index, which measures costs for
food, housing, clothing, medical
care and goods and services, has
gone up over 40 percent, Florida
Power's rates have risen less than-
three percent from 1981 to 1990.
'We have been able to main-
tain electric rates for our custom-


ers that are among the lowest in
the state for the last several
years," said Allen J. Keesler, Jr.,
president and chief executive offi-
cer of Florida Power.
"One of the ways we have ac-
complished this is by controlling-
our operating costs and running
a tight ship," he said.
The company actually had a
series of rate reductions in the
late 1980s.
'We are proud of being one of
the nation's most efficient .utili-
ties. However, we have reached
the limit of our ability to absorb
the business expenses associated
with customer growth, enviion-


mental protection and other cost
increases," Keesler said.
The company has several
construction projects under way,
including a total of 680 mega-
watts. of new generating capacity.
Four units that will produce 340
megawatts and are designed to. be
used for peak electricity demand
periods are scheduled to be irk-
stalled by late fall in the DeBairy
plant in Volusia County.
Another :340, megawatts .pf
similar type, units .will go in: ser-
vice in 1993 .at a plant site, n.gr
Intercession City in Oscepla
County ... r ;
A cooling system for two coal


plants and the nuclear unit at the
Crystal River Energy Complex,
built to meet stricter environmen-
tal requirements, is slated to be
completed in the spring of 1993.
The company also is faced
with additional costs of deprecia-
tion, including expenses for even-
tual dismantlement of the compa-
ny's coal and oil-fired .power
plants, as well as a requirement
biy financial accounting standards
,to set aside an accounting reserve
for retiree medical and life insu-
rance benefits.
The company's .construction
budget is more than $2 billion
over the next five years to meet
service requirements and main-
tain customer reliability.
The rate request was formally
filed on Friday, asking that the
increases take effect in four stag-
es. The first, would be an interim
2.2 percent increase in the spring
of this year, subject to refund
pending ,final approval by the
Florida Public Service Commis-
sion.
The second would be an addi-
tional 7.5 percent increase late
this year. In the spring of 1993,
the company is asking for a 0.75
percent increase, followed by a fi-
nal 1.56 percent increase late
next year.
The increases are scheduled
to coincide with the various con-
struction projects that are to be
completed during this two-year
period.
The average residential bill
per 1,000 kilowatt hours current-
ly is $71.06. If the new rates are
approved, the, monthly bill Would
increase to $77.96 in late 1992,
and to $79.60 by late 1993. The
total request amounts to $145.9
million.
In 1988, Florida Power's rates
were reduced by $121.5 million.
Florida Power Corporation is
Florida's second largest investor-
owned utility with 1.1 million
customers covering a 32-county,
20,000-square-mile area of ser-
vrice. The company is headquar-
tered in St. Petersburg.

VA-guaranteed home loan is 8
percent. VA encourages veterans
to refinance loans with interest
rates that are two percent or
more higher than the current
rate. For lesser differences, in
rates, refinance costs eat up
much of the savings.
Nationwide, more than one
million VA-guaranteed loans cur-
rently carry interest rates or 10
percent or higher, with a total
dollar amount of more than $65
billion. In the state of Florida,
more than 82,948 VA-guaranteed
loans currently carry interest
rates of 10 percent or high, total-
ing some $4,989,886,014. The
potential individual and collective
savings to veterans are substan-
tial. An $80,000, 30-year loan at
10 percent, for example, has a-
monthly, payment of $702.06;
that would drop to $587:00Q2,a
month if the loan were refinanced
at 8 percent.
Veterans considering refi-
nancing should contact a private
lending agency. If there are ques-
tions concerning eligibility for .a
VA-guarantee of the refinanced
loan, the veteran should contact
the nearest VA regional office.
Veterans in the state of Florida
may call toll free number 1-800-
827-2204 for more information.

If I Were President
By Teresa Jackson
"If I were president. I would
have homes for some of the peo
ple that are poor. I would go to
meetings and try to be fair and
lower taxes and make important
speeches. I would thank all the
people who voted for me by trying
to make this nation a better one.
I would be the best president this
nation ever had. I would be nice,
trustful, and help in whatever
way I can." Teresa said she did
not watch The State of the Union
Address on TV.
What Is Patience
By Kelly Forehand
Patience is not pulling the
phone out of someone's ear when
you want to talk. Patience is
when someone hits you in the
back of the head with a ball and
you do not do anything. It takes
patience to hunt. It is patience
when you do not kill someone
when they slam your hand in the
door. Patience is that little thing
inside of you that makes you
think sometimes.
The Good Samaritan
Sixth grade teacher Lori
Price's puppy was run over the
other morning. Shortly after,
Vicki Abrams, from Gulfaire who
was on her way to work, say the
injured puppy and stopped.
Dressed in her work clothes, she
went door to door until she found
out whose puppy it was. Vicki is
a modem-day Samaritan.

Jesus Christ

Hebrews
13:4 Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed
undfiled: but whoremongers and adulterers God
will judge.
I/Corinthians
7:32 f would have you without carefulness. He
that is unmarried careth for the things that belong
to the Lord, how he may please the Lord.
7:37 He that standeth steadfast in his heart,
having no necessity, but hath power over his will,
hath so decreed in his heart that he will keep his
virgin, doeth well.

Our body is our temple. It is a gift from God. If
we SAVE SEX for marriage, not only will it help
