PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA 32456 THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 20,1992


CofC Joins

Group to

Go After

Industry

Spin-off from FSU
HMF Laboratory
The Port St. Joe-Gulf County
Chamber of Commerce an-
nounced their joining with a con-
sortium of eight counties and
Florida Power Corporation to at-
tract industry to the north Flori-
da area Wednesday afternoon.
The consortium, initiated and
being spurred along by Florida
Power, Corporation, includes-
along with Gulf County-
Franklin, Wakulla, Jefferson,
Taylor, Madison, Hamilton and
Gadsden counties.
FLORIDA'S MAGNETIC
NORTH
The group, entitled, "Florida's
Magnetic North", is a promotional
organization designed to take ad-
vantage of spin-off and satellite
industries which will be attracted
by the High Magnetic Field Labor-
atory being installed at Florida
State University. The laboratory,
which is re-locating here from
MIT, will continue to position the
U.S. to compete internationally
for research and development of
products and materials that use
high magnetic fields.
Denise Bouvier and Michelle
Miller, of FPC's public relations
department, were here to answer
questions about Florida Power's
role in the organization. They
pointed out that in the north
Florida area, counties have tradi-
tionally maintained an indepen-
dent, competitive attitude toward
each other, .rather than develop-
ing a cooperative, coordinated ef-
._fort. for-.-regional development.-
Recognizing this, communities
throughout Florida Power Corpo-
ration's Northern Division have
recently come together to work
with each other, the state, and
other regional organizations to es-
tablish this area as a vital part in
Florida's economic future.
TARGET INDUSTRIES
Industries to be targeted by
the marketing emphasis include.
medical technology, materials re-
search and processing, magnet
development, machine shop ser-
vices, plastics manufacturers,
warehouse and distribution cen-
ters and other industries related
to the existing industry in the
area.
The presence of the magnet-
ics laboratory provides a catalyst
for the targeting efforts, which is
expected to attract concerns
working with or depending on the
laboratory's expertise in at least a
200 mile radius of Tallahassee.
Aware of the inability of the
eight counties involved in the
Florida Magnetic North move-
ment, to mount a serious recruit-
ing program on their own, Florida
Power is shepherding all eight
counties under the one umbrella
and underwriting much of the ex-
pense involved, as well as provid-
ing the direction of a full-time
public relations department
aimed at attracting these firms to
this part of the state.


This utility shed, owned by Bessie Had- stroyed by one of the twisters Monday. Most
den and her son, Robert Browning at Dal- of the property damage was limited to the
keith, was the only building totally de- Dalkeith area.



TORNADOES:

Two Twisters Touch Down In Wewa Area


A storm front moved into
Gulf County Monday morning
and didn't leave until it had
thoroughly soaked the county
and caused at least two torna-
does to dance about over the
northern half of' the county,
causing some property damage.
No injuries were reported from
the twisters.
The first twister touched
down just west of Wewahitchka
on State Road 22 around 9:00
"a_-m;', eastern time, damaging an
automobile driven by Rose
McCorvey. She was driving her
father, Berlie Griffin, to Panama
City to a doctor's appointment,
when the twister grabbed the
car and lifted if off the ground
several -times. "It made us say
our prayers," Griffin said.
The twister followed a north-
east path through Stone Mill
Creek and on to the county line.
The second funnel touched
down in the Dalkeith area blow-
ing over trees, a utility shed,
damaged two automobiles and
blew over several fences and
awnings.
HEAVY RAINS
The front also soaked the
county with rainfall for two days
and two nights, as the squalls
started during the early morning
hours on Monday.
The Wetappo Tower report-
ed that the north section of the
county had between 11 and 12
inches of rainfall with the heavi-
est periods of precipitation dur-
ing the time the tornado funnels
were dancing around.
'They never fully touched
the ground," Sheriff Al Harrison
said. "One of my deputies wit-
nessed one of the clouds and it
was dancing up and down, but
not quite touching the ground."
Heavy rains in the north
have also made many dirt roads
impassable, washed out a large


culvert and weakened a bridge.
The culvert spanning Right
Prong Creek, at the east edge of
the new state prison property at
Stone Mill Creek, was washed
out, isolating the prison proper-
ty. The main bridge crossing
Stone Mill Creek was under-
mined and weakened,
Here in the Port St. Joe
area, the rainfall was heavy, but
not quite so heavy as that re-
ported in northern Gulf County.


A pine tree was blown across
area Monday morning.


Emily Simmons, unofficial
weather person for The Star, re-
ported a total of 6.35 inches of
rainfall between 8:00 a.m., Mon-
day through 8:00 a.m., Wednes-
day morning.
Mrs. Simmons says her
records show a total of 7.75
inches for February which is a
record for the month. The. new
record for rainfall in February
,breaks one which has stood
since February 1965.

It all happens Monday. That's
the day Gulf County gets out of
the solid waste business. No more
collecting garbage and compact-
ing it for the trip to the Bay
County incinerator. No more ac-
cepting trash at the county's two
compactors at no charge. No
more accepting solid waste at the
compactors under any condi-
tions.
.The county is officially out of
the household solid waste busi-
ness as of Monday of next week.
So what do you do with your
trash and your garbage?
If you live in Gulf County,
outside the city limits of Port St.
Joe, you call Argus Services, Inc.,
[ASI] and contract with them to
pick up your household garbage.
They will collect it, transport it to
Bay County and pay to have it in-
cinerated, for a monthly fee.
Those who live inside the city
limits of Port St. Joe will see no
changes in their house-to-house
garbage collection, for a while at
least.
Those who live inside the
county-including in Port St.
Joe-who have the habit of haul-
ing yard trash to the compactor
on a periodic basis should make


other plans. After Monday, the
compactors will be closed and will
no longer be accepting contribu-
tions of trash and garbage. Yard
and household trash may be tak-
en to the Five Points landfill, or
the construction landfill on State
Road 22, but no table garbage is
allowed in either landfill.
ARGUS HAS CONTRACT
The Gulf County Commission
has contracted with Argus, giving
them exclusive rights to collect
garbage in the county. The same
house-to-house charge will be
made to all their customers. Al-
though the county has no man-
datory pick-up requirement for
garbage, the Board strongly rec-
ommends that citizens contract
with Argus. The Board feels that
the contract they negotiated with
Argus is the cheapest way for
people to dispose of their waste.
CITY SERVICE
Prior to Monday, February
24, the City of Port St. Joe col-
lected garbage inside the city lim-
its, placed it in the compactor
and the county hauled it to the
Bay County incinerator and paid
the burning fees.
After Monday, the City will

Cong. Peterson Spends A Day In the County


Answers Questions
Second District Congressman Pete Peterson
didn't dodge any questions and he gave an in-
telligent response to every question tossed up
for an answer as approximately 40 people gath-.
ered in the County Commission meeting room
Thursday evening to meet with the U.S. Repre-
sentative.
Oddly enough, the matter of the economy
never was mentioned in the hour and a half of
questions and answers, but people from the
Gulf County area were interested in such di-
verse matters as flood insurance for the Cape
San Blas/Indian Pass area, a single wetlands
definition, the national debt, foreign aid, free
trade, etc.
The Marianna Congressman gave an in-
depth answer to each of the questions, which
left the one who posed the question satisfied
that he or she had been answered by someone
who knew something about the subject they
wanted discussed.
PETERSON'S RESPONSES
Concerning foreign aid, the Congressman
said there is no foreign aid bill, yet, this year.
He pointed out that other agencies of govern-


Tossed His Way by an Interested Group of Citizens


ment pumped money into countries trying to
buy friendships. He said there was a foreign
aid proposal for about .08% of the budget
which had not been approved yet. 'These funds
have strings attached," he said. "'The products
they are to buy must be purchased from our
nation and transported on our ships. We, in ef-
fect, get most of it back in jobs and services
performed."
As for aid to Russia, Peterson said, 'We've
spent billions and trillions over the years bring-
ing the Russians to their knees. It seems only
good business that we add a few more dollars
in an attempt to assure that the Russians go a
direction which is in our favor."
Flood insurance for the Cape and Indian
Pass is still a possibility, even though federal
law prevents it being written at this time. "I
made a mistake when the matter was brought
up about three months into my Congressional
career. I admit the mistake, but it won't hap-
pen again. I am attempting to get the law re-
considered on the grounds that maps with in-
correct information were introduced in support
of the present law. I am trying to get approval


of the insurance for this area. It's not a dead is-
sue."
He said there is one definition coming to de-
scribe wetlands, even though the definition
may vary with parts of the country. "We don't
have the same kind of wetlands in Florida as
we do in North Dakota, for example." The idea
is to make one definition for all involved agen-
cies to refer to.
As for free trade, the Congressman said
there is no such thing. 'There is FAIR trade
and ours isn't fair at all. We are being taken
advantage of. We are attempting to put the
United States on even ground with our trading
neighbors to guarantee that we receive a fair
shake out of our trade relationships.
CALL ME!
As he wound down the session, Peterson
urged that anyone in his district who has a
problem with the federal government, should
call either his Tallahassee or Marianna offices.
"If it can't wait, call me in Washington. Your
call will always be answered by a voice you can
talk to and I'll return your call just as soon as I
can."


Representative Pete Peterson listens atten-
tively to questions from the audience in the
Courthouse last Thursday afternoon.

Effective Monday



City Starts



Program of



Recycling
Effective Monday morning, the City of Port St. Joe Sanitation
Department will be getting into the first part of what is expected
to be a major recycling program in just a few weeks.
Monday, the City must begin hauling its own garbage to the
incinerator in Panama City, as the new County solid waste pro-
gram kicks in. The County has been-providing this service for
the city,in the past.
Monday, in order to reduce the amount of solid waste to be
hauled, customers of the service inside the city of Port St. Joe
are being asked to separate table garbage [organic waste such as
meat, fish, fowl, vegetable and fruit wastes) from items such as
paper, bottles, cans and plastics. The table garbage should be
placed in the garbage can as in the past, with the other wastes
put in a plastic garbage bag and placed alongside your garbage
can.
canThe bagged waste will be hauled to the Five Points Landfill,
for the present, with the table garbage transported to the incin-
erator in Bay County for burning.
Business customers are asked to go a step further and sep-
arate cardboard from all other waste, placing it in an individual
dumpster or pile.
The City is in the process of purchasing a baler and when
the machine arrives further separation will be called for to segre-
gate paper and cardboard from other trash. The paper waste will
then be baled and sold as fuel or to recycle into making paper.
Sanitation Department director, Frank Healy said the move
is the first step toward full-blown recycling in Port St. Joe. "If we
do it right, we shouldn't have hardly anything to bum in the in-
cinerator and should see a huge savings in our landfill space as
well," Healy said.'

What's This?


Is big government beginning to soften up? Is the will of the
people beginning to be heard? Have those cries in the wilderness
been attracting attention? Indications are that this is actually
the case.
Just last week, a state government agency came to Port St.
Joe and pronounced that a formerly intransigent stand against
taking oysters from the most productive spots in Indian Lagoon
has been softened. The new direction of these agency people is
"Let us help you with your problem." Previously, .the attitude
seemed to be, 'You have a problem, and the problem is us!"
It's almost unheard of for a government agency which has
any connection at all with protecting the environment, pollution,
etc., to do anything except hand down a verdict based on
"Could, may or might be," rather than on cold, hard facts, and
dare you to get that verdict overturned, or even relaxed. It's. re-
freshing to see them adopt a "Let us see if we can help you." atti-
tude.
Then. there's the matter of taxes. Last week, both the House
of Representatives and the Florida Senate approved a state bud-
get which would not require new taxes. Prior to their adoption,
there was all kind of rhetoric over not "if', but "where" the new
taxes-would be levied. But people were resisting, big time, and
the Legislature listened. The word is that Governor Lawton
Chiles will veto the negotiated budget, whatever it is, in favor of
adding some new tax money into the state coffers. The Legisla-
ture seems to be more in tune with what the people are saying
than is the Governor.
A few days ago, a delegation, representing four state agencies
appeared in Port St. Joe and said, in effect, "We want to help you
have better rapport with state agencies and be able to go directly
to the source of action when you need something. We want to
help you along this line." That's never happened before. In previ-
ous days, state agencies seemed to delight in losing a request,
permit, project plans, etc., in the paper shuffle in Tallahassee,
thus effectively stopping local government from interfacing with
state government.
It could be that the current trend of not trusting big govern-
ment on the part of those who put them there is beginning to
take hold and yield a crop of cooperation, rather than resistance.
For whatever reason, it is refreshing to see big government seem-
ing to be willing to help serve the people they are elected and
hired to serve for a change. It would truly be amazing if the pen-
dulum kept swinging until the agencies and departments be-
came more interested in serving people than in perpetuating
their own little world of power.



He Was Candid
Along these same lines, United States Representative Pete Pe-
terson was in the county last week, doing a little campaigning
under the' guise of holding Town Hall Meetings for the people to
express themselves. Of course, he listened to questions and gave
answers, just as he came here to do. The Congressman was even
on time for this visit. He was acting like a responsible Congress-
.nan and no doubt made some points with a part of his constitu-
ency where he needs some points. It's probably no secret to him
to know that he isn't exactly a 'Bob Sikes" here in Gulf County.
To be truthful, he has no die-hard organized opposition, either.
We guess, what we're trying to say is that the jury is still out
here in Gulf County.
The Congressman made points during his visit here by not
ducking or side-tracking a question. He gave a straight, concise
answer to all the questions posed in his direction in this writer's
hearing.
The Congressman also made points by expressing the ap-
proval of the growth of a movement in Congress to force action
on some type vehicle to create a Constitutional Amendment re-
quiring a balanced national budget. There are many around
these parts who are solidly in favor of this suggestion.
Peterson will be attempting to retain his office for the second
term this year, and thus far has only one opponent. Whether he
will have any more opposition or not, remains to be seen, but it's
getting awfully late if there is a serious opponent out there any-
where.
No doubt the Congressman knows he didn't make many
friends in all of his district when he opposed the Persian Gulf
operation. He has made no excuses for the position, however
and has taken the consequences of his expressions of discontent
without whimpering.
We're not saying we will support, or even vote for Peterson.
We're saying only that in our observance the man expresses his
opinion and takes the medicine or credit it brings him.


Visitors give their rapt attention to Congressman Peterson in Town Hall meeting.


Shooting From the Lip and the Hip


Kesley
t 'Colbert






Back in the late 50's there
was a pretty good American Le-
gion baseball team that came out,
of Memphis, Tennessee. In fact, if
memory serves me correctly, that
team won a national champion-
ship. Ed Spezio's father was the
coach. Ed was the short stop and
one of the best players on the
team. The catcher for this outfit
was Tim McCarver. I remember
the interview with Ed's father af-,
ter the championship game when'
he was asked about McCarver.
"He's a good boy, has quick
hands, great hitter, excellent
speed for a catcher and he's a
natural leader on the field, he's
always talking back there.........."
I've got news for Coach Spe-I
zio Timmy is still talking. He's
been on T.V. more lately than
Wolf Blitzer was a year ago at this
time.
But now-a-days. Tim is not
yelling out to Bob Gibson to-
"smoke 'em on the inside" or to
Steve Carlton to bust that slider
in on Pete Rose's hands. No, late-
ly Timmy has been telling us how
Heike Warnicke and Liudmia Pro-
kacheva are doing in the speed-
skating. Or about Kjetil Andre Ar-
modt taking the bronze in the
giant slalom. And how about that
great race for the gold between
Olaf Zinke and Yukinori Mlyabe.
I've been watching some of
the Olympics. I, like you, want to
keep up the Americans. But I'm
having a tough time. I can't tell
the East Germans from the West
Germans. And it's not near as
much fun when you don't have'
the Soviet Union to pull against.
Mostly I'm watching these,
days to see how a boy from Mem-,
phis pronounces all the names.
And, of course, if I'm lucky this,
will be the winter I find out lust'


exactly what it is they do in that
Nordic combined event Do we
even have a team in that thing?
And I must admit, even with
all the talking McCarver's been
doing, he hasn't won the prize for
most absurd statement of the
games. That goes to the expert
commentator who told us with a
straight face that the luge was
really catching on in America.
Right! I know in your travels
across our great land you've ob-
served all the 10-year-olds out lu-
geing up and down the hills.
We're putting a track together
now in our back yard.
'You want to do what, Dad-
dy?"
"Just climb up on the house,
get on the ramp, lay down on the
piece of cardboard feet first, put
your head back like this and see
if you can get up to 120 kilome-
ters before you crash into the dog
pen fence."
About the only thing I abso-
lutely can't watch is' the figure
skating. 'That's a sport? Now If
they'd give each couple a sharp
stick and let'em attack the couple
skating just ahead of them, I
could see some merit in it. Plus,
you could get a clear cut winner.
Last team standing gets the gold.
The way it is now, they all skate
Just alike. The team in 17th place
skates exactly the same as the
first place team. No difference.
Everybody gets a 5.6 to 5.8. And
they all smile, and cry and hug
when it's over. My wife calls It
breathtaking. I'll tell you breath-
taking. You give Hershel Walker
and Bertha Boatwright a sharp
stick and put'em at one end of
that rink and get Victor Kytrinkof
and any girl he wants at the oth-
er............
A couple of nights ago I'm
watching a Clint Eastwood movie.
He's playing a preacher and I'm
an hour and 49 minutes into this
thing and he ain't shot the first
guy. But he's getting ticked. The
evil men are pushing his friends
around something awful. The
head crook calls in John Russell


to finish running Clint's friends
out of thevalley. Clint digs out
his guns and straps them on. I
knew he really wasn't no preach-
er-
"Honey, can we turn to chan-
nel 4, the Duchesnay's are about
to come on?"
"Are you kidding! clint's fix-
ing to go to town. The Duc-she-
ney's, did we go to school with
them?" ,
"No, but I sure would like to
see them."
"Are they kin to us?"
"No, silly, it's Paul and Isa-
belle, I want to see if they win."
"Isabelle, they from Louisia-
na?"
'They're from France. Let's


see if they win."
"Let's see if Clint wins"
"Honey, Clint produced, di-
rected and stars in this movie. I'd
say there's a better than even
chance he wins."
It's figure skating Clint East-
wood is cleaning up the whole
town by himself and I'm watching
two people ice skate who aren't
even Americans! Guess what?
They looked Just like every other
couple I'd seen skate and got
5.7's and 5.8's and flowers when
they finished. Isabelle cried.
I flipped back to Clint. It was
over. John Russell was lying face
down in snow. There were dead
guys stuck in windows, lying in

A Cigar Box Would be a More 'Presidential''Campaign Depository


TODAY IS FEBRUARY 20,
which means we are now only 50
days into the year 1992. The year
1992 is an election year and al-
ready there are candidates run-
ning over each other seeking of-
fice on all levels of government.
This year, hopefuls are run-
ning for everything from political
party representatives on a local
level to President of the' United
States. Those running for Presi-
dent of the United States are es-
pecially active, right now, run-
ning from one corner of the
United States to the other comer,
.entering the state preference pri-
maries.
Florida is up among the first
in the nation to hold its presiden-
tial preference, which we will do
early in March. That's not very far
away. Some of those northern
states like Vermont and New
Hampshire get to the polls before
Florida, but our state is among
the first to be invaded by Presi-
dential hopefuls.


You could say that 1992 is a
year of hysteria election hys-.
teria.
I NOTICE THAT Dave Barry,
a fellow columnist, is running for
President. A few years back, Pat
Paulson was a perennial Presi-
dential candidate, who ran on a
comical note and kept us all from
going crazy by taking the process
too seriously.
This year, Barry is filling in
for Paulson, giving the activity of
running for President a safety
valve of laughter as the basis of
his campaign.
SBarry is a "brother" and will


likely get the tongue-in-cheek
support from those of us who
tend to refer to him as "in the
business". If he's a serious col-
umnist, he can't be all bad and
his reading the pulse of the peo-
ple can't be too far off track.
What makes a guy a "serious!'
column writer is that he gets
enough money for his labors that
he doesn't have to do anything
else to keep body and soul togeth-,
er. Barry is that kind of colum-
nist. People pay him serious mon-
ey for being a nut on paper.
LAST WEEK, Barry was re-
vealing his economic package, as


required by law. Well, it didn't
take long, after the forms were
filled out, to reveal that his eco-
nomic package was more or less
non-existent This alone could,
keep him from being successful
in his quest for the White House.
Most of the guys who get there
have already made their millions
and have a real viable financial
plan, such as putting ownership
of firms into the care of a man-
agement team, putting his invest-
ments into a trust, etc. With Bar-
ry, no such problem exists. He
writes for a living, so he can't
have much.
Barry says his campaign con-
tributions amount to about
$30.00 in change which he keeps
in a cardboard box, which was
formerly used to hold a ping pong
set he bought a few years ago.
Sort of like a shoe box bank.
you know.
Barry ought to get serious
about this Presidential race thing.
He really needs a Tampa Nugget


cigar box for his treasury. A ping
pong box won't do. The cigar box
would add a little dignity to his
campaign which is throwing off
negative vibes because the ping
pong box gives off the message
that he would be a President who
would just play around.
FOR YEARS, Cecil Costin,
Sr., kept the St. Joe Hardware
cash, which was in transit to the
bank, in a Tampa Nugget cigar
box.
When St Joe Hardware
moved into their newpullding, he
stopped the practice, but over
past years, there is no telling
how much money passed through
that Tampa Nugget cigar box
I was thinking, that if Mr. Co--
stin still had that cigar box, he
might lend it to Barry for his
campaign treasury depository. It
served the Costin family well for
many years and should prove to
be an asset to Barry, also, in his
run for the Presidency.


I don't think they put cigars
in boxes anymore, so if there isn't
a used one or two lying around
somewhere, Barry may be relegat-
ed to using his ping pong box, or
maybe even a bank!
ON THE SERIOUS side, how-
ever, if you happen to have a
campaign contribution for Barry,
you can be sure It gets to him by
turning it over to me. Kesley Col-
bert or Wendell Campbell. We're
all columnists and Wendell and
Kesley are syndicated. just like
Barry.
.You can trust us!
If you want to see someone
who even claims to be a comedian
as President, rather than vote in
a person and have him show you
he is, then vote for Dave.
How are Wendell and Kesley
syndicated? Wendell is printed in
the Apalachicola Times and Kes-
ley can. be seen in the Thomas-
ville Ledger. We're all big time
around here.

Work Release Prisoner Causes Problem and Sets Off Flap


AVisit With Uncle Conier
You might as well go today, the voice seemed to says that Sat-
urday morning, December 28, 1991..It was cold, overcast and
miatlng rain as I diank a cup of coffee and looked out the kitchen
windoW..My work was pretty well caught up and there was noth-
ng I could do outside and, besides that, my wife and the children
were id Mississippi for our post-Christmas celebration with Ma-
Smaw anhd Papaw Girayson.
My-plins, had changed several times, but I had tentatively
,isttled on visiting my favorite and only hliing uncle the next Sat-
i:rday, 'January 4, 1992.,-No telling what may come up by then,
-thbevoice seemed to say. The best time to go is today.
S.' "Have you been to see Uncle Comer lately?" my cousin, Jerny,
.asked about two weeks before when he called from Tuscaloosa.
"No," I answered, "and I'm ashamed of myself because I sure
would love to see him."
'Well," Jerry continued, "I Just talked to him and he asked
about you and said he would love to see you, too. He's not doing
well, you know."
Uncle C.W. "Comer" Bodie was the youngest son in my moth-
er's family. He is somewhat a legend in our family, and although
we had grown apart the last few years, he and I shared a fond-
ness for each other that dated back to my childhood. Uncle Com-
er is a man that books are written about
In his younger. days he stood well over 6 feet and wore over
200 pounds well. He was a handsome man with dark skin, dark
curly hair and' even, White teeth that showed a lot because he
loved to laugh. He always worked hard and his weight was evenly'
distributed over his tall frame. Needless-tb-say, everyone took no-
tice.when- he walked-Into, a room, especially the ladies. Most men
stood aside or came over to shake his hand. He was no bully, but
he was a man who wouldn't take no gruff off anyone, EB severalgl
men IfnNorthwest Florida will attest : ,.
P. "Did you inow he's gbt religion arid has been saved?" Jerr,
said, while we were talking. "No," I answered, "but if he's a Chris-
tian, I'll bet he's a good one." t
I knew Uncle' Comer had stopped drinking several years ago
due to health reasons,' age and Aunt Orell. I stopped for virtually
th sate reasons about four years ago. However, before he and I
stopped, we would bn occasions, go out and have a few and tell
jokes and have some fun; He could telJ some of the most interest-
ing stories about how life was like growing up in Santa Rosa
County before ltwas civilized. Frontier justice prevailed!
Sa' Farived At-hls home in Milton shortly after noon that Satur-,
day. When I arrived, he and Aunt Orell weren't expecting me and.
f opened the doo without-knocking and walked in. When he real-
iteie who I was, he :smiled his familiar smile and said, "Boy,
where' in the world have you ben? I've been thinking about-you!"
A We sat'and talked for most of the afternoon, Uncle Comer,
Aunt Orell bnd I, except for about an hour when I walked next
-door and visited with Aunt Gladys, my only living aunt, who lives
next door. '
Shortly after I returned to Uncle Comer's, I got up to leave
and hugged Aunt Orell and shook hands with Uncle Comer. On
an impulse I hugged his neck and kissed him and said, "Uncle
Comer, I love you and I'm sorry that I haven't been to see you in
such a long time."
"I love you too, Wendell," he replied. "I love your family, too. I
love everybody. I hope you come to see me again real soon." I
promised I would.
p I drove back to Port St. Joe and was in bed before midnight.
The next morning at about 7 o'clock the phone rang. It was my
sister who lives in Panama City. 'Wendell, be glad you went to
see Uncle Comer yesterday. Aunt GladyseJUst called and said he -
died about four-hours after you left yesterday. -. .
I wouldn't take anything for that time spent with Uncle Com-,

No charges have been made
in the matter, but Circuit Judge
Dedee Costello has instigated an
investigation of activities by Ghlf
County Shesiff Al Harrison in his
prisoner work release program
here in the county.
Although Costello has initiat-
ed activities by States Attorney
Willie Meggs of Tallahassee, the
Judge has issued no. statements
in the matter and has been una-
vailable for comment since the


matter was made public.
Sheriff Harrison, on the other
hand, has talked about the mat-
ter freely, saying, in effect, "My of-
fice operated just as Judge Co-
stello instructed us to in the
matter of releasing prisoners dur-
jng the day to go to work and re-
turning to the jail at night." .

To the Editor: .
In last week's edition you
published a letter to .the editor
under the heading INCOMPE-
TENT COMMISSIONERS. Sup-
posedly, the letter was written by
Alvin Germaine. Well, ALVIN'S IN-
COMPETENT. In fact, Alvin
doesn't exist.
Having lived in Gulf County
,only the past 25 years, I won-
dered why I had never heard of
Alvin. I checked the voter regis-

you. Guess what? The address is
to a vacant house and there is no
record of Alvin's existence.
Whoever Alvin may be, I sus-
pect she/he must have recently
been released from Florida State
Hospital in your Brother Will's fa-
vorite City of Chattahoochee. Un-
fortunately, she/he must not be
taking their medication. This is
the only explanation I could
reach based on the outrageously
false information contained in the
correspondence. Only an incom-
petent could write such misinfor-
mation.
Unlike Alvin, the people of
Gulf County are responsible,
competent citizens. Each person
will assume their responsibility to
dispose of their solid wastes in a

beach-walkers, property owners
and all others will handle their
own wastes and will encourage
others to do the same. Individu-
als are responsible for their own

Your Board of County Com-

[Ed Note-We apologize, Mr.
Moore, for not suspecting the let-
ter as. having a bogus signature.
Printing such letters is not our
practice, as you well know. If a
person wishes, to criticize some-
one they should be as brave as
the one they are criticizing and
make their statements over their
signature rather than hide be-
hind anonymity.
We, like you, had never heard
of the person who signed the let-
ter, but then, new people move
here every day. They had a viable
address. Since they lied about
where they lived, we must also
assume they must have misled all
df us about their knowledge of
the subject they claimed to know
so much about-so much, in fact,
-that they didn't want anybody
else to know they were the ones
owho said it.].

Just that. Most of the time Judge
Taunton had to give the permis-
sion, since Judge Costello was
, unavailable," Sheriff Harrison
said.
According to Harrison, he has
allowed the work release privileg-
es to "about 150" prisoners dur-
ing his term in office and said,
'We have had a total of two cause
us any problem. The one who


started this little misunderstand-
ing was a man who was caught
driving under the influence of al-
cohol while he was on work re-
lease. He was then put back -in
the jail and the privilege revoked.
He served the remainder of his
term locked up in jail."
Releasing prisoners from
county jails during the day to re-
port for work and returning them
to their cells for the night, is a
common activity with the
counties of Florida.
I Harrison said Judge Costello
first contacted him about the in-
cident in .September of 1991.'
"She said she wanted to meet.
with me and discuss the,problem
of work release and then never
showed up. The next thing I
know, Willie Meggis is calling,
saying he has a complaint fr6m
Judge Costello."
'There was a simple way to
handle this," the Sheriff said. "All'
the Judge had to do was instruct
me not to release her prisoners
on work release and that order
would have been carried out. But,
it didn't happen that way."
"All I have to say is that I did
just as she instructed me to do
concerningg prisoners, so ifar as
Florida Statutes would allow. I
have witnesses to the instruc-
tions I was given and proof that,
those directions were followed,"'.

Nursing Bottle

Caries May Be

Prevented

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

Decaying teeth from nursing bottle caries is probably seen less
frequently today than in past years, but it is an important problem
that can be avoided, and is seen with a frequency that makes its
discussion worth repeating.
What is nursing bottle caries? It is decay in a child's baby teeth
caused by keeping a bottle in his mouth all the time. This happens
with milk, but is worse wheri a child drinks juice from a bottle all
the time.
How can you avoid bottle caries?
Several things can help you avoid the problem of caries.
1. Begin teaching a baby to drink from a cup about four
months of age.
2. Do not let him use a bottle as a pacifier.
3. Do not give juice from a bottle. (If he is old enough for juice,
he is old enough to drink from a cup. In fact, juice is a good thing
to use in teaching the cup.)
4. Do not let a baby keep a bottle nipple in his mouth after he
is asleep.
5. Breast feeding your baby completely avoids the problem.
6. Give water to drink after sugar containing foods. Infants
need water that has fluoride added as an additional aid against the
development of dental caries.

This is a short week for Port
St. Joe High School students.
Monday and Tuesday were Teach-
er Inservice days and the stu-
dents were given two free holi-
days. This past Friday was
Teacher Appreciation Day. To
show their appreciation, students
brought refreshments to the
school for the teachers. Through-
out the day, the teachers enjoyed
the snacks that were served in
the lounge.
On February 27, there will be
a Financial Aid Workshop in the
Port St Joe High commons area
at 6:30 p.m. Parents of seniors
planning to go to college should
attend. The workshop will cover,
among other things, how to fill
out financial aid applications and


how to apply for financial aid.
Anyone interested in more infor-
mation about federal student aid
programs should call 1-800-FED-
AID.
Alison Lowrey was selected to
represent Port St. Joe High
School as the NCTE (National
Council of Teachers of English)
writing nominee.
Each year the best junior
writer is selected by the English
Department to submit samples of
his or her writing to this national

exhibit depth of thought in quali-
ty and presentation of ideas as
well as demonstrate a command
of vocabulary and sentence struc-
ture. The nominee must also ex-
hibit the power to inform and
move an audience through con-

language. Alison Lowrey will rep-
resent Port St. Joe High school
well.
Caroline Lister won the coun-

Each year, the DAR sponsors
an essay contest for high school

Gulf County Schools to

Participate in Hazardous

Weather Awareness Week
Governor Lawton Chiles, in cooperation with the National
Weather Service, the Florida Department of Community Affairs, and
the 67 county emergency management agencies, has proclaimed
February 24tl. through 28th as Florida Hazardous Weather Aware-
nesS Week.
Gulf Courity Schools will participate in a statewide tornado drill
on Wednesday, February 26 at 9:00 a.m. in their respective time
zones. A practice tornado watch will be initiated around that time
and relayed over all the usual communications systems. The watch
will be in effect for the entire state, and will be clearly identified as a
practice tornado watch for drill or test purposes only.
A practice tornado warning will be issued a short time later by
the National Weather Service Forecast Office in Miami and dissemi-
nated throughout the state by all the Weather Service Offices in
Florida. The warning will be in effect for every county in Florida and
all warning systems will be asked to activate just as if the tornado
warning were real. The National Weather Service Offices will all re-
quest activation of the emergency broadcast system and will also
sound the tone alert on their NOAA Weather Radio stations. All ra-
dio and television stations are urged to broadcast the practice tor-
nado watch and tornado warning messages. The warning will be in
effect for 30 minutes.
Schools should activate their emergency procedures when they .
receive the tornado warning. Once all of the preparedness actions
have been taken and the students have been moved to the pre-
arranged shelter locations, the drill can then be considered over for
the school.

S911 Committee to Eliminate Street Name Confusion


Gulf County's 911 committee
and the County Commission held
a public meeting last week to dis-
cuss the matter of changing
street names with the general
public.
The committee has come up
with a list of 34 street names
throughout the county which
bear the same name as another
street in the county. There are 65
streets which bear similar names
to another street.
The committee has tried to


get the message across that while
this may not seem to be much of
a problem, it can cause big time
confusion when handed to an
emergency service operator and
told to get to a certain place just
as quickly as possible. Since
most emergencies are a "get there
as quickly as possible" situation,
advisors have said it is a necessi-
ty that no name duplications be
in the system in order to clarify
locations when they are given
out.


Serious Gardeners


Getting Ready for


Spring Planting


By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
Ideally, we like to get our
spring vegetables in (and growing)
as soon as possible to have them
9 close to harvest when that on-
slaught of summer pests is just
beginning to emerge.
In most years, the target date
for having vegetables, such as
beans, cantaloupes, corn, cucum-
bers, peppers, squash, tomatoes
and watermelon, planted is
March 20th. April 1st or later Is
used for okra, eggplants and
southern field peas.
Getting a garden off to a good
start by fertilizing the plants from
the beginning Is wise. Current
recommendations are to apply an
8-8-8 fertilizer or 10-10-10 at the
rate of two pounds per 100 linear
feet of row spade. To do this, at
time of planting, make a shallow
furrow 2-3 inches deep to the
side of the plants (or where the
seed was planted) 4-5 Inches out.
Evenly dribble fertilizer into the
bottom of this furrow and then
cover it back up. This fertilizer
should suffice for 2-3 weeks. At
that time, a second application of
fertilizer is supplied. Since Flori-
da soils tend to hold phosphorus
for some time, this second appli-
cation (and subsequent ones eve-
ry 3-4 weeks until harvest starts)
should have a low amount of
phosphorus in the fertilizer. Ap-
ply a 15-0-15 or a complete ferti-
lizer that is low in phosphorus at
the rate at the rate of 2 pounds
per 100 linear feet of row space.
The vegetables will have grown a
lot by then, so scatter this over
the ground close, but not on the
vegetables, and carefully work in
with your fingers or hoe, taking
care not to harm tender roots.
Mulching with leaves or grass
clippings between rows (in the
walkway) goes a long way towards
reducing the time we spend hoe-
ing and trying to control weeds.
DONT apply this mulch too close
to the young plants too early,
however. For plants to "know" it's
springtime, and a time to "get

along with Daisy Troop 484,
cleaned up Lake Alice. They then
* took the trash to the recycling
bins at the courthouse where
they sorted and placed items in
the proper bins. In October. they
traveled to Port St. Joe to partici-
pate in the Seniors Citizens Arts
and Crafts Festival along with
other area Girl Scouts. They also
marched in the Wewa homecom-
ing parade.
In November, the girls sold
Girl Scout calendars and. nuts.
The profits from the sale of these
products goes to help sponsor a
troop event such as a camping
trip.
December found the girls
busy marching. They marched in
both the St. Joe and Wewa pa-
rades. They also donated a Girl
Scout Handbook to the Gulf
County Library along with other
books given by area Girl Scout
troops.

growing," the sun needs to warm
the soil, stimulating root growth.
Failure to get adequate soil warm-
ing each day leads to vegetables
that just "sit there" waiting for
spring to come This partially ex-
plains why gardens receiving
morning shade are often 30 or
more days behind in growth than
gardens in full sun. Mulching too
close too early shades the soil
and can cause the same spring
growth delay in vegetables. As a
rule of thumb, mulch the walk-
ways in the early spring but wait
a while to mulch up the side of
the beds.
For those who have no heard
by now, the product vapam/fume
V. which has been so commonly
used in vegetables gardens, will
soon be made a restricted pesti-
cide, meaning only those people

MUCH CONSIDERATION
The 911 committee of Gulf
County has worked for nearly
three months In an attempt to
come up with an alternative solu-
tion for clarity or location, short
of changing street names, to no
avail. A change of some street
names is necessary, the commit-
tee reported to the public hearing
last week.
County Commission Chair-
man Billy Traylor told the people
present that the changes would

companies will be able to apply it
to home gardens. What then fol-
lows, with its loss, for the garden-
er who is faced with soil patho-
gens and pests? Most of the
approach to soil pests in the fu-
ture will revolve around: Limited
crop rotation, but in small gar-
dens this is not very practical, es-
pecially when tilling operations
move contaminated soil through-
out the garden; solar sterilization
during the summer months,
which involves tilling, watering,
and then covering with clear plas-
tic fallow beds allowing the sun to
kill organisms with its heat; use
of resistant vegetables when pos-
sible; keeping plants well watered
and fertilized so they grow rapid-
ly; use of more organic matter in
the soil through mulching and
soil incorporation before planting.


be held to a minimum. He said
changes would be made all over
the county, with most changes
being made where they would di-
rectly impact as few people as
possible.
The name duplications exist
all over the county. One example
of duplications has a Bay Street,
a Bay Avenue and Bay Drive all
listed in Gulf County. The differ-
ence is evident to the ones living
on these streets, but to an emer-
gency vehicle operator, who must
go to a specific location, the.three
streets could easily be confused,
causing lost time which could
prove to be fatal to a victim of
crime, accident or illness.
Also, there is a Magnolia
Street, Magnolia Drive and Mag-
nolia Avenue. Such near duplica-
tions and exact duplications exist
all over Gulf County.
VOTE TO CHANGE
At the hearing last week, the
committee recommended that the
necessary changes be made. The
County Commission accepted the
recommendation and asked the
committee to go ahead with the
process of making the necessary
changes. The committee has the
advice and experience of other
counties which have already
adopted the 911 service and ex-
perienced the problems expected
by local planners.
Only Commissioner Ed
Creamer objected to making the
necessary changes.

land View has voiced any unified
objections to the street change
plan in the past A large number
of Highland View residents have
softened their stance to shelve
their objections provided the
changes were absolutely neces-
sary.
At last week's meeting, the
committee said that was the crite-
ria they would be using in mak-
ing the changes necessary to bet-
ter clarify specific locations when
directions are given.


The changes will probably be
made over the next 'several
months. Installation of the 911
system is still a little more than a
year and a half into Ithe future.
The County must have all the
money in hand to pay for the sys-
tem when it is installed. Present-
ly, telephone subscribers, are pay-.

phone bill. The purchase price of
the system should be reached by
late next year.

Floridians Recycled
102,600 Tons of Glass
Floridians collected 102,600
tons of glass bottles and jars for
recycling in 1991. The newly re-
leased figures represent a 35 per-
cent increase over the previous
year and 200 percent increase
sine the Florida solid waste law
was passed in 1988.
'This momentum is very en-
couraging." said David Baker, di-
rector of the industry-supported
Southeast Glass Recycling Pro-
gram. "As more and more com-
munities gear up for expanded
commercial collection programs,
we expect continued strong
growth for glass recycling in
1992."
The 102,600 tons of glass re-
cycled in Florida last year repre-
sent a savings in energy equiva-
lent to almost one million gallons
of fuel oil. In addition to the ener-
gy savings, the use of recycled
glass in the manufacturing pro-
cess helps save valuable natural
resources and landfill space.

Sharks Defeat Apalachicola, 91-60


The Sharks had the high-
flying Rutherford Rams on the
ropes Tuesday night, but just
couldn't put them away in a 94-
79 win for the Rams.
The Rams, ranked number
four in 3A for the state of Florida,
were down by 13 points at the
half-time stop, but the Sharks
couldn't contain the Panama City
team for the second stanza.
The Sharks put 43 points on
the scoreboard during the first
half, but fell to 36 points for the
second. The Rams, meanwhile,
were going the other direction.
They managed only 30 points in
the first half and more than dou-
bled their production in the sec-
ond, with 63 points.
The Sharks had four players
scoring in double figures. Jason
Maxwell set the pace with his 20
points. Sandy Quinn added 17,
Arion Nickson had 16 and Letron
Alexander 14. Maxwell hit on four
long distance 3-pointers, Quinn
had two and Baxter one.
Temus McClary was the big
gun for the Rams with 37 points.

ry, of Port St. Joe, took his turn
in the starting lineup last week
for the University of Tampa Spar-
tans basketball team. Larry
scored 11 points in his first ca-
reer start against Florida South-
ern, hitting four of eight from the
field including a 3-pointer.
By losing to Florida South-
ern, Tampa saw its home record
fall to 6-7 while dropping its sixth
straight home game.

Weight Loss

Surprises

Researchers
WASHINGTON --A nutrition or-
ganization was hopeful that a nutri-
tionally complete "hi-tech" food
tablet would help erase world hunger
problems, until a study revealed that
one of the ingredients could cause
significant weight loss.
Although other studies and sci-
entists may not agree, researchers in
Europe found that the ingredient, a
natural plant colloid, actually caused
people to lose weight, even though
specifically instructed not to alter
normal eating patterns, according to
one study published in the prestig-
ious British Journal ofNutrition. Re-
searchers in an earlier study had specu-
lated that the weight loss was due to
a decrease in the intestinal absorp-
tion of calories.
While the project of National Die-
tary Research, aptly named Food
Source One, would not be used to
successfully fulfill its original goal,
the formula which has since been
improved with other natural colloids
has been a windfall for some over-
weight people. A Daytona Beach,
Florida woman fighting a weight battle
for 12 years used the product on the
recommendation of her physician and
lost30pounds. She stated, "Not only
have I lost 30 pounds but my choles-
terol has dropped from 232 to 143. I
have two closets full of clothes which
have not fit me in two years that I can
now wear." In a separate report, a
telephone interview revealed that a
Wilmington, North Carolina phar-
macist lost 14 pounds in 3 weeks on
the product and was never hungry.
Food Source One tablets are part
of National Dietary Research's com-
prehensive plan to bring a rapid end
to obesity in this country. A variety
of nutritionally sound diet plans, spe-
cially prepared by NDR, accompany
each bottle and provide a natural,
drug free alternative for confronting
the problem of obesity.

Fisheries scientists of the
Florida Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission have just com-
pleted tagging 500 largemouth
ass in Dead Lake in a study de-
signed to see where the fish go in
late spring and summer.
"Last year in May," said fish-
eries scientist Michael Hill, "we
had a difficult time finding bass
in Dead Lake using our normal
collection techniques. Yet only a
few months earlier; we found
quite a few bass in the same
areas.
"We sampled through the
summer and noticed by Septem-
ber a few of the bass were filter-
ing in. By October and November
more bass were collected in our
samples."
Hill said when the bass dis-
appeared he and other biologists
noticed dissolved oxygen levels
were fairly low, measuring only 3
- 4 parts per million (ppm). While
high enough to support fish life,
he said most game fish would
seek other waters with a higher
oxygen content, perhaps 6 7
ppm.
The six million dollar ques-
tions is, where did they go?
'"We looked in several areas
and were simply unable to locate
them," Hill said. '"We don't know
if they moved into brushy areas
near the lake's edge where we
couldn't get to them, or if they
moved up the Chipola River (that
feeds the Dead Lake, down the
river to the cut-off, or into the Ap-
alachicola River.
'That's what we're hoping
this tagging study will tell us."
Hill said all 500 of the bass
which ranged in size from 10
inches to 10 pounds, are tagged
on the back near the large dorsal
fin with white and orange spa-
ghetti-type fish tags. He said each


tag is numbered and if fishermen
want to release their fish the pli-
able tags should be clipped at the
surface of the skin.
He said it is important that
fishermen not pull the tags out of
fish they want to live release be-
cause the base of the tags are an-
chored inside the fish's bone
structure and to do so may kill
them.
Hill said anyone who catches
a tagged bass is requested to ca.l
the GFC's Midway office at (904)"
487-1645 and advise the date of
catch and location. As a reward,
he said the Florida Wildlife Feder-
ation has provided fluorescent
orange baseball hats that will be
given to all respondents.
Oxygen levels fluctuate in
Dead Lake depending on time of
the year and water level and Hill
said the fluctuation is tied to the
presence of organic debris that
collected for 30 years above Dead
Lake Dam. Although the dam was
' removed in 1988, the decomposi-
tion of that material now causes
the lake's oxygen content to be
generally lower than the Chipola
and Apalachicola Rivers.

Peterson Wins
Bass Tourney
The Panhandle Backlashers
Bass Club held their February
tournament recently. The proud
winners was Ron Peterson. He
weighed in 10 pounds to take
first place. Second place was won
by Ray Jolley with 3 pounds, 8
ounces and third place was Eddie
Price with 3 pounds, 5 ounces.
Peterson's big fish weighed 3
pounds, 13 ounces.
The next tournament will be
held March 14 at the White City
Landing.

TETRACYCLINE

STAINED TEETH


Tetracyclines a group of in-
fection-fighting antibiotics can
produce staining of children's
teeth if they are given during the
time when the primary teeth are
forming. According to the Nation-
al Institute of Health, if tetracy-
cline is given to a woman during
her last trimester of pregnancy,
ac to an infant during the first
three months of life, discolora-
tion of the dentin of baby's teeth
could occur. The resulting stains
are then visible as soon as the
baby teeth erupt. The sensitive
period of tetracycline-induced
staining of the permanent teeth
occurs between the ages of 3
months and 8 years. These
stains may not become visible
for several years.


Although the stains are per-
manent, the enamel of the teeth,
is seldom weakened, and, there-
fore, the teeth function well. It is
not a health hazard and if prop-
erly cared for, teeth stained
or not can last a lifetime.
There are some cosmetic
treatments for tetracycline-
stained teeth, however, the best
treatment is prevention. Parents
should discuss with their doc-
tors the use of alternative drugs
during late pregnancy or early
childhood.

Prepared as a public service
to promote better dental health.

Largemouth Bass


Limit Upped to 5


The Florida Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission has mod-
ified its proposed regulation on
the largemouth bass daily bag
limit from four to five fish.
Last July, the Commission
proposed a statewide four-fish
daily bag limit in place of the cur-
rent limit of 10 bass to help pre-
vent overharvest of bass.
According to Commission
fisheries biologist Scott Hardin,
'We upped the daily bag limit
from four to five fish after receiv-
ing feedback from the public that
the limit of four fish was too re-
strictive."
Overall reaction to the propo-
sal favored a reduced bag limit
but most felt the four-fish limit
was too low, Hardin said. Fifty-
five percent of the respondents
did not support a four-fish daily
bag limit. The Commission re-
ceived 239 responses, some with
multiple signatures. However,
most anglers who disagreed with
the four-bass limit suggested a


five-bass bag limit as an alterna-
tive.
"The majority of anglers feel
the current 10-fish limit is too
high," Hardin said. "Our proposal
was designed to reduce bass har-
vest thus affording anglers a bet-
ter chance to catch more and
bigger bass. A five-fish limit likely
would provide similar opportuni-
ties, be more in tune with public
opinion, and not sacrifice' the
quality of the resource."
The proposal also includes a
14-inch minimum size limit for
waters south and east of the Su-
wannee River and a 12-inch mini-
mum size limit for the Suwannee
River and all waters north and
west. In addition, only one of the
five bass could be 22 inches or
longer.
The five-member Commission
will consider adopting the pro-
posed bass regulations at its Feb-
ruary 28 meeting in Tallahassee.
If the proposal is passed it would
go into effect July 1.

vices later on. They are also
much more likely to be successful
in kindergarten. In addition, par-
ents of these youngsters learn to
work more effectively with their
child at home, and a positive rela- *
tionship is built between home
and school through personal con-
tact and parent involvement ac-
tivities.
Gulf County's program has
expanded steadily since 1987.
The key to that success is the
preschool teacher. After years in
various elementary education
classrooms, Joyce Groom asked
to be transferred to the preschool
handicapped program at Wewa-
hitchka Elementary. Some people
wondered if she had lost her
senses; others wondered if she
would have the stamina for work-
ing with lively 3-5 year olds.
Joyce proved all of the skeptics
wrong. Just ask her and she will
tell you that her current assign-
ment is "Just heaven."
Joyce helps preschoolers
learn through play. Her class-
room is filled with exciting things
to do and talk about. There's a
house for three little pigs and a
take-out restaurant for selling
.-....fam rgiaind"fries: There's a
rocker, a mini zoo and dozens
and dozens of books.
In the pre-k classroom at St.
Joe Elementary, Kaye Mormile
practices a "hands-on" approach
to preschool education. Anything


Joyce Groom's classroom -is
filled with exciting things to do.
(macaroni, cocoa, pine cones, old

young children learn basic con-
cepts and encourage them to

creative approaches in the fully-
furnished portable building that
houses her program. Kaye previ-
Ously taught'a varying exception-

examples of the outstanding ex-
ceptional education teachers who

dents.

Saunders Coming

Back to Port St. Joe


Rachel Saunders, that viva-
cious 12-year-old recording artist
from Bonifay, will be returning to
Gulf County in three weeks. She
will make six appearances over a
two-day period.
This year, Rachel will perform
for the Wewahitchka Elementary
School and the Jr. High School
on Tuesday, March 17th. Later
that evening, she will appear at
the Port St. Joe Elementary PTA
meeting. The next day, she will
visit all three elementary schools
in Port St. Joe with her message
of "Say No To Drugs By Saying
Yes To Life."
Rachel's career as a singer
started with her first recording
which was released when she was
Only eight! She has the unusual
distinction of having had her first
effort gain a position on the Bill-
board Charts.
S Since age eight. Rachel's tal-


ent has blossomed through her
public performances and televi-
sion spots with such stars as
Burt Reynolds, Ricardo Montal-
ban, and Mel Tillls. Most recently
she has toured and performed
with Pat Boone in Israel.
When the State Legislature
and Governor Chiles heard Ra-
chel sing a number from her Say-
ing Yes to Life public service vid-
eo, the governor endorsed Rachel
as a role model for the children of
the world.
Rachel's Saying Yes to Life
video has been nominated for a
Gold Angel award, and Rachel
has been chosen as one of the
four emcees for the presentations
on March 17th in Los Angeles.
While there, she will also open a

tion is presently in, Congressman
Pete Peterson told the Rotary
Club last Thursday. The Con-
gressman was confident, howev-
er, that as bad as this nation's
economy appears to be, it will get
better.
In a question and answer
type appearance, Peterson cov-
ered everything from free trade
[saying there was no such thing]
to methods for curing our eco-
nomic ills. And, of course, he
talked about taxes.
Peterson said this nation
must go through the activities of


changing our ways of doing busi-
ness, and our outlook on life.
Touching on specific sub-
jects, the Congressman said:
-'We're in a new ball game
now. We're not the only team
playing. Nations all over the
world are competing with us. We
must make some changes in or-
der to get back into the world
market."
-"The inequities in tariff
schedules have hampered our
balance of trade with Japan as
well as other nations. Congress is
now seeking a solution for recip-
rocating tariffs where they are
placed against our products. We

threat to our products."
-"New taxes would be OK
and the people would approve of
them if two things were to hap-
pen. First, there must be assu-

Thomas Is HRS
Employee of Year
Andrew F. "Andy" Thomas
was the recipient of the employee
of the year award for 1991 Fri-
day, February 14th at the Port St
- Joe HRS office.
Thomas, who is the Economic
Services Unit supervisor for Gulf
County, has been with the De-
partment for 26 years, 24 of
which have been in the county.
Thomas was nominated for

tinued leadership and Inspira-
tion.
Congratulations, Andy.


guards for making sure it did.
Second, the people must have
their faith restored that Congress
is properly handling tax money
which is already being collected."
-"Our nation needs to do
something about its health prob-
lem. Hospitals are losing money
every day because some doctor
cooperatives are creating diagnos-
tic clinics, sending the patients
who pay to these clinics and
sending the ones who don't or
can't pay, to the hospitals, in-
creasing their deficits."
-"I see more of a serious
movement toward Congress creat-
ing a constitutional amendment
requiring a balanced budget. I be-
lieve you will see some serious
steps toward this end this year."
-"Approximately 40% of to-
day's national budget is required
to service our national debt We
can't continue in this direction."

*All tires have a "wear bar," a
built-in safety device across the
surface. You can't see it until
the tread is worn. It's a signal
to replace the tire, but smart
drivers don't wait that long.
*It's nearly impossible to brace
yourself before an accident.
The impact is usually over in a
tenth of a second, not enough
time to protect yourself or your
child. That's why seat belts are
so necessary.
*When you Invest in battery
Jumper cables, It pays to buy
good ones. Cheap jumpers may
not be adequate when you
need them, they don't last, and
poor insulation may prevent a
fire hazard.
*lIf your car's radiator "sings"
after you've shut off the engine,
wit until the car Is cool and
check out the radiator cap.
Chances are the gasket Is worn
and the singing is just steam
escaping past It.
*Bad news among cars
stopped in a recent road check,
nearly 50 percept were low on
antifreeze/coolant, and 41 per-
cent had worn belts. Periodic
checks should be part of the
fill-up routine.
*Auto Repair. Good news -
our expert mechanics always
check your car's parts and per-
formance at

We're Proud Of O-en-Minded Receptive Adults Who Consider




L et's face it... we're all growing
______ __ older, and sometimes resist -
change. The old ways always seem


always true.
Grandma says her oven makes better
meals than the microwave. And for
some foods that's true. But we have
made some delicious meals from the
microwave and still been able to take
the kid's to the Saturday afternoon
matinee. Keeping your business records
on index cards in a file cabinet works
very well ... but is not nearly as accu-
rate or fast as a computer program.
We're proud of the hometown adults
who are open to new experiences and
sometimes find that new ideas are
exciting and fun ... and we're proud of
our hometown,
