County Employees



Using Illegal Drugs

Face Dismissal; Random Testing Program Approved


"Our liability exposure is too great to allow our employ-
ees to use drugs and not take any steps to stop it. It's a
danger to the worker, his fellow employees, and the gen-
eral public," according to a quotation by County Commis-
sion Chairman Billy Traylor.


Sheriffs Captain Jack Davila, Port St. Joe interrupts his Saturday of leisure to issue ex-
Police Chief Carl Richter and Brian Bechtold tradition and arraignment papers against
watch, as Gulf County Judge David Taunton Bechtold.


Maryland Killer Gives Up


to Port St. Joe Police Dept.


Brian A. Bechtold, 23, of Silver Spring,
Maryland, told Port St. Joe Police Chief Carl
Richter that Jesus spoke to him and told
him to turn himself in for the murder of his
father and mother at his Maryland home last
Friday afternoon. After he was in jail, Bech-
told said, 'The devil made me kill them."
According to Chief Richter, Maryland au-
thorities didn't know the elder Bechtolds
were dead until Port St. Joe authorities
called, checking out young Bechtold's story.
Maryland authorities found the young man's
parents, dead, in their home. They had ap-
parently been dead for about 10 days.
The 23-year-old walked into the Police
Department about 2:15 and confessed that
he&-had killed his parents,'Gedioge and Doro-
thy Bechtold, both in their early 60's, took
their Suburu station wagon and started on
an odyssey with Mexico as his ultimate desti-
nation. His travels took him to Laredo and
Houston, Texas, before they led him to Gulf
County.
In Houston, young Bechtold ditched the
shotgun he had used to kill his parents and
saw police recover the gun. He panicked,
took a wrong turn and ended up in Jackson-
ville. Apparently, he turned around and
started for Mexico again but got only as far
as Port St. Joe.
The confessed killer had taken his fa-


their's wallet and $200 in quarters to finance
his trip to Texas and back to Florida. Arriv-
ing in Gulf County, he stayed for about three
days in the Beaches area, sleeping in the sta-
tion wagon, along with a huge Rottweiler dog
he had with him.
BEING EXTRADITED
After confessing to the double murder,
young Bechtold was locked up in Gulf
County Jail while authorities started the in-
vestigative wheels turning. Texas and Mary-
land authorities were contacted to verify por-
tions of his story.
Saturday morning, Gulf County Judge
David Taunton was called in to issue an ar-
rai-gnmrent -against- Bechtold- and provided
him with extradition papers to sign, sending
him back to Maryland, where he will be
charged with the double murder of his par-
ents.
Meanwhile, Florida Department of Law
Enforcement authorities were in Port St. Joe
Wednesday to make a thorough examination
of the station wagon Bechtold was driving.
Port St. Joe Police Sgt. Timothy Hightow-
er took Bechtold's confession Friday after-
noon, saying, "He was so calm about the
whole thing, I couldn't believe him until we
called Maryland and finally verified that the
double killing had actually taken place."


'You won't do drugs and
work for Gulf County," the Gulf
County Commission decided
Tuesday night, on a 4-1 vote. Ac-
tion taken by the Board after con-
siderable discussion, was, that
any County employee determined
to be using illegal drugs would
immediately be dismissed from
their jobs.
Chairman Billy Traylor wait-
ed until the regular meeting was
almost over before he said, "I hate
to bring up this subject. I hate
that we even have this problem,
but when the public brings it to
your attention as being a fact, it's
time to take action. It's something
we are accountable for."
Traylor revealed that it had
been pointed out to him that a
few of the .County employees were
using illegal drugs especially
in the Road Department and the
Mosquito Control departments.
Traylor then vacated his posi-
tion as chairman of the Board
and made a motion that the
county adopt a policy allowing
random drug testing and immedi-
ate dismissal of those found to
have the illegal drugs in their sys-
tem. "This practice is a danger to
the worker, his fellow workers
and to the general public. We
need to take the steps necessary
.,to stop it," he said.
All the Commissioners agreed
with Traylor's assessment of the
situation except for Commission-
er Natan Peters, Jr. Peters said
the County should set up some
sort of system for getting treat-
ment for offenders, rather than
summarily dismissing them.
"Why not a period of suspen-
sion?" Peters asked.
The other, four Commission-
ers felt the danger was too great
and the County's liability too
large to take a softer stand
against. the practice. "Driving
those loaded dump. trucks over
our roads is no place for a driver
using drugs," Commissioner


Charles Fortner said.'
Commissioner Creamer ob-
served that insurance carriers,
"Have a right to tell you or any
other employer that your rates
will be increased if you don't deal
with the problem effectively."
When all the discussion was
over,, the Commission put a rul-
ing into effect that they could re-
quire the random' drug checks
and a person testing positive
would be immediately dismissed
from his or her job.
APPROVE AGREEMENT
The Commission approved a
final draft of a stipulated agree-
ment with the Department of
Community Affairs, which is ex-
pected to gain approval from that


state agency for the County's
Comprehensive Plan.
The stipulated agreement
spells out future land use policy
which applies to coastal densi-
ties, particularly along the shores
of St. Joseph Bay and the Gulf of
Mexico.
The agreement calls for a
maximum density of two dwelling
units per acre on the shores of St.
Joseph Bay and on the shores of
Indian Lagoon. It allows for a
density of three dwelling units
per acre along the shores of the
Gulf of Mexico.
The agreement also stipulates
that conventional septic tank sys-
tems will be prohibited within
150 feet from coastal waters and
wetlands on the Bayside as out-
lined on an accompanying map
and within 75 feet of coastal wa-
ters and wetlands on the Gulf-
side.
Although the Plan hasn't.
been approved as yet, by the

25 Cents Calling Plan for

Gulf County to Begin
Beginning Tuesday, March 1, direct dialed calls between Port
St. Joe, Wewahitchka, and The Beaches Exchanges which are
now charged for at long-distance rates will be 25,4 each regard-
less of the time of day or duration of the call. These calls will re-
quire dialing only seven digits. It will no longer be necessary to
dial 1 before dialing the telephone number. For example, a We-
wahitchka customer can then call a Port St. Joe resident by dial-
ing only the seven digit telephone number.
The Florida Public Service'Commission approved this calling
plan in Docket No. 910122-TL by Order No. 25352. The Docket
was opened as a result of a resolution filed by the Gulf County
Board of County Commissioners to the Florida Public Service
Commission.
There will be no change in calling between Port St. Joe and
The Beaches. The routes which are affected are between Port St.
Joe and Wewahitchka and between Wewahitchka and The
Beaches.
Gulf County requested the phone company to initiate toll-
free calling county-wide some six months ago. The phone com-
pany took the request to the FCC which made the decision this
month to allow the flat 25 cents per call toll from former long
distance call points. The County Commission expressed approv-
al of the new FCC ruling in their regular meeting Tuesday night.
.Chairman Billy Traylor remarked, 'This will. be a big saving to
many of our people from both ends of Gulf County."


Garbage Program


Sees Few Problems

As County Shifts Gears On Methods
of Waste Collection and Disposal


All of Gulf County entered a
new era of solid waste handling
Monday of this week, as Port St.
Joe shifted to a new collection
concept and the County com-
pletely got out of the collection
and handling business.
The County's move caused a
reorganization on the part of Port
St. Joe, as it had to make differ-
ent arrangements to dispose of
what was collected by its solid
waste department.
Bill McGee, who heads up the
Gulf County Mosquito Control
Department, Which has been re-
sponsible in more recent years for
transportation and disposal of
solid waste, said citizens through-
,out the County had accepted and
adopted the new system of collec-
tion and disposal "fairly well." He
said Argus Services, the private
contractor franchised to collect
and dispose of solid waste said
they had received 170 new collec-
tion customers by the first day of
the new service. Argus was al-
ready collecting from some 680
customers throughout the county
under a private contract.
'There has been no major vio-
lations of the new systems at the
landfill or the closed compactor
sites," McGee said. "But of
course, it's early yet." The direc-
tor said his people had found no
significantly increased dumping
in the woods or along the road,
again emphasizing that it was too
soon too tell, since the new sys-
tem just went into effect.
* COMPACTORS CLOSED
For several years, residents


throughout the County have been
able to take their garbage and
trash to the County's two com-
pactors, if they lived outside a
garbage collection service area,
but this will be the case no long-
er. The two compactors are closed
to the general public, although
the one near Port St Joe is being
used by the City to prepare its
waste for transportation to the
Bay County incinerator.
Both landfills in the County
remain open. Five Points landfill,
two miles east of Port St. Joe on
Highway 71, still accepts yard
trash and debris with the excep-
tion of kitchen garbage. Its hours
of operation, however, are re-
stricted. The landfill is open Mon-
day through Friday from 8:00
a.m.,to 4:00 p.m., and on Satur-
day from 8:00 a.m., to 6:00 p.m.
In Wewahitchka, the Wetappo
landfill, west of Wewahitchka on
State Road 22, is open from Tues-
day through Friday from 12:00
noon to 4:00 p.m., and all day
Saturday from 8:00 a.m., to 5:00
p.m., local time. An advertise-
ment in this week's issue of The
Star, lists the Saturday opening
hour at 9:00, but the County
Commission changed the time to
8:00 a.m., Tuesday night
"It's too early to tell what the
public reaction is going to be at
this time," McGee said. '"We have
already heard some grumblings,
however," he continued.
CITY COLLECTION SERVICE
Port St. Joe's public works
(See WASTE on Page 3)


Workmen check the depth of a new run of asphalt, as they Thursday afternoon. The contractor has stayed busy, between
start laying down a new layer of paving on 14th Street last rains, for the past week, re-surfacing streets.


Re-Surfacing of City Streets Now Underway


C. W. Roberts Construction Company of Hosford, took de-
livery of a brand new Barber-Greene asphalt spreader last
week, and put it right to work, re-surfacing many of Port St.
Joe's streets.
The paving, part of a $3.2 million bond issue sold by Gulf
County, financed with a new 6t per gallon fuel tax, is paying
for the project, which is expected to provide about $650,000
worth of street re-surfacing inside the City Limits of Port St.
Joe, before the pavers are through.
Under the project, virtually every street in the City, which


needs it, will receive a new coat of smooth asphalt before the
paving program is complete.
The Roberts' firm has been working for nearly a year re-
surfacing County road 30-A, to the Franklin County line,
streets in Wewahitchka, Overstreet, White City, the Beaches
and now, Port St. Joe, as the Commissioners allotted and
spent the bond money in projects all over the county.
The Port St. Joe project is the last large segment of the
paving program to be completed.

Pothole 98

We are firmly convinced that all potholes die and come to
Highway 98 along the beaches. Have you driven west of Port St.
Joe recently? It's an adventure.
We'understand the heavy rains caused the potholes to magi-
cally appear as if they were toadstools popping up in the yard.
Rain does that to paved roads ... especially paved roads which
have patches in them already. Highway 98 is rich with patches,
which cover up potholes of the past.
The odd thing about Highway 98 is that the potholes are on
the westbound lane, rather than on the eastbound. One would
think they would be on the eastbound side since that's the lane
which carries most of the heavily loaded pulpwood traffic toward
the St. Joe Forest Products paper mill here in Port St. Joe. That
side of the highway seems to be in pretty good shape.
Since the heavy rains made the potholes bloom, one might
say we shouldn't be sounding off until we give DOT an opportu-
nity to make repairs. After all, they must be up to their keisters
in potholes throughout the district, as well as damage caused by
flooding. Believe it or not, we understand that and maintain a
sympathetic attitude toward what DOT has facing them during
the weeks ahead.
We want Gulf County's name in the pot as needing pothole
repairs, first! Highway 98 is becoming a disaster area and/'what
DOT really needs to do is resurface that highway. Since it took
us a generation to get a much-needed new bridge at Highland
View, you can just learn to live,with Highway 98 a while longer.
We'll keep the faith with DOT this time, however. A while
back they came in and dressed up the sides of Highway 98 from
Dixie Belle curve to the west side of Mexico Beach, smoothing
out and enlarging the shoulders of the highway to accommodate
parking and planting grass to hold the shoulders together. It
was a classy job. Maybe now, with the apparent interest on
maintaining a serviceable artery along the shoreline, they will re-
alize, quickly, that much further delay will mean the highway
will be navigable by only four-wheel drive vehicles and even they
will have to drive very slow.


There's A Word

We talk in the column below about New Hampshire sending
messages to President George Bush. We can see a more urgent
need for the people of Florida to send a message to each and eve-
ry one of their SERVANTS in the Legislature, the Governor and
the Cabinet.
It's time for the voters of Florida to send a message to these
people and warn them-yes, we said warn them-to stop holding
the schools of Florida hostage in order to make the hard money
choices the economic times are forcing on the state.
With a false pious look on their faces the lawmakers, intent
on raising our taxes in order to satiate their spending appetites,
give us the formula that it's either pay more taxes or cut funds
from the schools. Since the schools and their programs are next
to the church and motherhood in sanctity the lawmakers cor-
rectly perceive that the people of Florida would rather give up
their outboard motors and boats than to deprive the. schools of
anything, so they agree to shell out money they cannot afford,
willingly. That's not fair.
These same lawmakers who are bent on increasing taxes-
not to give to the schools, incidentally, but to provide cash to
fund their pet projects at home-are also promoting approval of
an income tax for Florida.
That one's a little harder to sell, because it requires a consti-
tutional amendment, which takes approval of the people. In or-
der to attempt to fool the people info approving the tax measure,
however, they are mounting a propaganda campaign that the in-
come taxes would take only a small percentage of the income of
the most affluent of Florida.
Read your history! The national Income tax was established
during the World War I era and was described as being only at
the rate of one percent of the wages of the more affluent in the
nation. It other words, it would take only pennies out of the pay
of the rich. But who's paying the income tax now? What's the
rate of deduction? The rich may still pay their one percent, but
what do you pay? Are you rich? These things have a way of
growing.
It's hard to figure out these days who figures the people for
being the biggest fools the legislators trying to talk us into
paying more taxes by holding the school system hostage, or the
group of ministers trying to get Mike Tyson pardoned from his
conviction of raping that 18-year-old girl. There's a word for
what both groups are trying to do to the public.

'What in the heck was Mrs.
Roddenberry talking about to-
day?" Buddy was soaping his hair
up as he asked the question. It
took me a few seconds to change
gears, we had been talking about
basketball practice.
'You mean the leap year
thing?"


One Small Leap for Mankind


"Brilliant deduction, Watson,
seeing as how she didn't talk
about nuthin' else." Buddy could
be a little sarcastic if he was a
mind to.
'Throw me some soap," Ricky
Gene was trying to adjust some
hot into his shower, "and I'll show
you how to hop in, lather up,
rinse off and leap out of here."
"Remember in the fifth grade
when Yogi put that frog down the
back of LaRenda's dress, man,
she leaped."
Laughter.
"So did the frog."
More laughter.
"I kind'a felt sorry for the
frog."


"I thought Miss Dinwiddie
was gonna croakl"
"I never will forget that inno-
cent look on Yogi's face. I don't
think LaRenda knows till this day
who frogged her."
'Well, if she ever comes down
again, we'll ask her."
More laughter.
We were dressing a few mo-
ments later. It had been a short
practice. The varsity needed to
use the gym.
"Maybe we ought to tell Mrs.
Roddenberry that 1960 ain't real-
ly no leap year." We all turned to-
ward Ricky Gene. Was he seri-
ous? "Two years ago was leap
year. And if she don't believe us,


she can ask LaRenda Bradfield."
"Lookl Up in the sky!"
"It's a bird."
"It's a plane."
"It's leaping LaRendal"
Basketball practice had been
a dud but, as usual, things had
picked up once we hit the show-
ers.
We decided to swing by Woo-
drow Kennon's Store for a root
beer before heading home.
'The solar year. Now, I've nev-
er heard of that one before." Bud-
dy wasn't going to let go of this
thing. "And did she say a normal
year is 365 days, 5 hours, 48
minutes and 46 seconds long?"
'That don't sound normal to
me."
"Mrs. Roddenberry lost me
when she started in-on that Ver-
non Equal Knox stuff." I knew
that must be important but I just
couldn't grasp it. "Every science
teacher we've ever had starts off
about what a wonderful solar sys-
tem we live in, then they go im-
mediately to Vernon Equal Knox.
He must'a wrote 'some more
book' on outer space.
"I'll tell you the thing that
just galls me about the extra
day." Ricky Gene was really dis-
gusted now. "They put it on the
end of February. Worst month in
the whole year. Why couldn't they
add it to the end of December?
We'd get an extra vacation day at
Christmas."
'Yeah, or it could've been
July 32nd, we would have one
more day of baseball."
"How about two 4th of
July's?"
"Grown-ups just don't think
things through."
"They sure don't!"
"Of course, they probably
asked that Vernon Equal Knox

'Yeah, either him or Walter

The Reason We Vote Is to Send Public Officials A Message


THE NEW HAMPSHIRE pri-
maries are over and you would
think the Presidential election
was now finalized, if you have
seen any of the news reports.
'The voters of New Hamp-
shire sent George Bush a mes-
sage," the papers read. Somehow
the voters of New Hampshire all
got together and decided that if
they voted for Buchanan it would
send a subtle message to George
Bush that, "We're going to vote
for you when it really counts, but
we're voting for Buchanan now to
tell you that you need to clean up
your act."
And In the case of the Demo-
crats, I suppose the narrow win
by Paul Tsongas was telling Bill
Clinton to "Stay home with that
pretty little wife where you belong
and quit tom-cattin' around!"
The term "tom-cattin' is well
understood in Arkansas, Clin-
ton's home state, as playing the
field, scratching around someone


else's door, or being in heat
I thought Clinton himself put
those rumors out so he would
look more like a Kennedy. The
menfolk of that now famous fami-
ly seem to be able to get elected
easily, in spite of their tendency
to approach women by the
scores, whether or not they wish
to be approached.
Sort of like a gentleman Mike
Tyson.
BUT, BACK TO Bush and
sending him a message. I have al-
ways thought that all votes were
means of sending messages. If
you vote for a person, you send a


message of approval. If you vote
against, you send a message of
disapproval. What's so complicat-
ed about that?
The reason for voting every
four years is to give the electors
of the nation an opportunity to
express their confidence or lack
of same in the way the nation is'
being run. Some people don't
seem to care one way or another,
so they just don't vote. They sit at
home, or don't take the time and
let things go on as they will.
But that's all right. If a per-
son doesn't want to miss out on a
televised game, soap opera or mo-
vie or don't want their daily


routine disturbed long enough to
go cast their vote or can't be
bothered with arming themselves
with a reason for voting as they
would have if they had cast a bal-
lot, I think the nation is better off
if they don't vote!
NOW, THE PEOPLE of New
Hampshire have a real, bona-fide
reason not to go to the polls. Re-
member the column a couple of
weeks ago about cold weather?
New Hampshire is one of those
places where it gets COLD during
the winter time. When it gets
COLD, it's time to stay inside
where it's warm.
I never could see why New
Hampshire scheduled their Presi-
dential Primary in the dead of
winter in the first place. If we did
this thing like it ought to be done,
we would have the first session of
the primary here in Florida and
wait until late March or early
April to move into New Hamp-
shire.


Even the sap in the maple
trees isn't running in New Hamp-
shire during middle February.
a And, if even the sap won't run,
why should we expect a politician
to do so?
You say it's hard to tell the
difference sometimes?
Now, that's not nice. Politi-
cians are just people like you and
I, with a burning desire to be a
public servant.

LATER IN THE week, the pa-
pers pointed out that Tsongas
and Clinton were challenging
"traditional Democratic views". I
don't really know what that
means. It's been years since the
Democrats across the nation have
had any "traditional views". I
agree that one of their views was
to win an election, but other than
that, they have been pretty much
at loose ends which is why
they didn't win as much as they
wanted to.
And it's why here in Florida,


a top Democratic legislator will
strip another Democrat of his
committee chairmanship simply
because he didn't vote like she
wanted him to. Talk about values!
I always thought one of the invio-
lable values in this nation was to
be able to vote like you wanted to.
Both Tsongas and Clinton
publicly challenged the "orthodox
Democratic liberalism" which is
what the Democratic voters have
been doing for years. It has finally
soaked down to the leadership in
the party.
But the leaders aren't alone
in abandoning "traditional demo-
cratic views". Also-ran Tom Har-
kin, who sent me a picture of
himself and a nine-page "news re-
lease" the other day, uttered this
revealing bit of information which
has all but been shouted from the
rooftops for years now, "My father
told me the best social program is
a Job!"
Well, well; you mean it isn't
an increase in welfare payments?

portion separated their trasi

John Wayne Strikes Again
Remember the 18-year-old high school senior, John Wayne
Thompson, who lost both arms at the shoulders and managed to
stay alive and summoned help? Do you remember me saying he
was a hero in my book for managing to keep his head under such
adverse conditions? Do you remember that he walked to his
house, which was over 100 yards away and, because no one was
home, managed to open doors with his mouth those he
couldn't open he kicked in punch in numbers on a touch-tone
phone and get help? Do you remember that courageous young
man?
I remember him and I shall never forget him and his heroic
act of courage.
There's someone else who remembered him and, now, I'm
certain, shall never forget John Wayne Thompson. It was John's
ordeal depicted on TV that probably saved this young lad's life. If
you didn't read about it, let me tell you what happened to 13-
year-old Scott Scrivner, who lives in Little Rock, Arkansas.
Scott, like John, was home alone, cleaning out a chicken
house on February 1 when he noticed a clump of cedar chips
blocking a conveyor carrying food to the chickens.
When Scott attempted to brush the chips aside, a sprocket
caught his sleeve and pulled his right hand into the mechanism.
His left hand also got lodged in the device when he tried to free
his right hand.
According to the article I read, Scott's hands and forearms
were dangling and mangled "like hamburger" when he was found.
Scott somehow managed to wrest both hands free after they
were caught but couldn't use them to open the chicken house
door. "After Ir'got my hands out," Scott said later, "I tried to kick
the door dowli but that didn't work. Then I remembered watching
the accident r- John Thompson's accident was re-enacted on the -,-.
TV show, Rescue 911 on television, that he had opened the O
door with his mouth. I thought, 'I could do that'" .4 n
And that he didl Scott opened the door with his mouth and'
yelled for his father, who was working nearby. "When I stepped
out, his forearms and hands were just dangling," said his stepfa-
ther, Ron Tatman. "I liked to have panicked myself," Ron said,
"but he never lost his head or his wits. I don't know how he
blocked out the pain, but he handled it tremendously."
According to the article, a team ofisurgeons at Doctor's Hos-
pital used microscopic surgery to reconstruct the hands in two
marathon operations. The doctors said that Scott will need more
surgery over the next two years, and they won't know for another
week if they saved all of his fingers.
-A tragedy?, You betl But it could have been worse. Scott
Scrlyner could, and probably would be dead today if it hadn't
been for John W. Thompson.
Give me more news about acts of courage like John Wayne
Thompson's. His are the kind we need to put on the front page of
the paper, in my opinion.
John Wayne Thompson, a hero? You bet'chal

To the Editor:
How many parents would be
so Irresponsible and uncaring
that they would send their chil-,

How many County Commis-

Gulf County has a group of
seniors who run the County who
forgot what it was to be young.
They are too old and need to be
replaced by caring responsible
guardians of our trusts.
So, who would dare send

they own it and have a license is-
sued by the County Commission-

Holmes Creeks Seek

To the Editor:
I read the letter written by
"Alvin Germaine" and the one by
Bob Moore. I was disappointed
when I found out Alvin didn't use
his real name, because it did
plant a seed of doubt in some
people's minds as to whether he
misled us or not
I don't think he did. Instead
of believing that he was crazy or
in- need of medication as Mr.
Moore does, I choose rather to
think that he is probably an em-
ployee of the County that needed
to be heard but didn't want to
lose his job. I feel that he knows a
great deal about what he said. Of
course, that's only a guess on my
part, but it's better reasoning
than what Mr. Moore came up
with. His attack on this person
leads me to think he is trying to
, get our minds off of the legitimate
questions and remarks made by
"Alvin". There may not be an "Al-
vin Germaine" but someone wrote
the letter and its contents merit
some consideration.
I, myself, and many others
are wondering, why did we spend
all the money on compactors and
on that huge expensive building
for recycling? I don't know every-
thing about this, but common
sense tells me obviously there
wasn't enough thinking or plan-
ning ahead on this matter before
thousands of our dollars were
spent I also know that we are in
an age where "trash means cash".
Other. counties know this, why
doesn't this county figure a way
to make money from our garbage
instead of pa~ ng another county

can then be hauled to the Bay

COOPERATION NEEDED
Healy said the new concept of
collection by the service will con-
Utnue to .improve as it is refined
and the collection system ironed
out and streamlined. 'We think
we can stay within the present
service charges, but if we are
forced through lack of coopera-
tion to accept private collection
services, everybody's garbage bill
is going.to increase," Healy said.
Healy also asked that dis-
carded cans and jars be rinsed
out, "Because we will hold them
for a couple of days before they,
are transported and if they are
cleaned it will reduce odors and
pests."

The Holmes Valley Band of
Creek Indians have joined forces
with the State of Florida, Depart-
ment of Labor and Employment
Security, Division of Vocational
Rehabilitation in a program to
identify and enroll eligible Native
Americans. The Holmes Valley
Band, headquartered in Washing-
ton County, is part of the lower
Muskogee Creek Indian Nation
and will be looking for all Native
Americans from Escambia
County in the West, East and
South to Madison and Taylor
counties. In this target area, ef-
forts are made to assure that all
citizens who are of Native Ameri-
can heritage and have physical,
mental or emotional barriers to
employment, are referred to The
Division of Vocational Rehabilita-
tion for services.
The services range from
counseling, medical treatment,
education and training, to job
placement The ultimate goal of
this program is to place those,
who are identified and enrolled,
into meaningful employment. Tri-
bal leaders agreed that this is a
wonderful way to help the Native
Americans of Northwest Florida,
but an individual must cooperate
with the Vocational Rehabilitation
Program to receive the benefits
that are offered.
The first step for a person of
Native American Heritage is to
contact their local Vocational Re-


Waste.

r CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM

Habits -
Some Are Worrying While
Others Are Annoying

By
Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

Many parents worry or are annoyed by various habit patterns
children exhibit. Habits in children that cause parents to ask for
medical advice include: thumb sucking, biting fingernails, bedwet-
ting, tics, masturbation and head banging.
Thumb or finger sucking does distort the teeth and dental oc-
clusion if prolonged and excessive, but the sucking is an expression
of a need for oral activity the child expresses in this way. I tell par-
ents the orthodontist is cheaper than the psychiatrist, meaning it is
better not to create more problems by strenuous efforts to stop the
sucking.
Nail biters feel a compulsive need to chew at every little sprig of
nail or cuticle that appears. Parents can help children who bite
nails by daily attention to the child's nails. Cream or lotion (applied
and rubbed in well) keep the skin in better condition and make it
less likely to annoy the child with rough areas or pieces of tissue.
Parents should keep all loose pieces of skin trimmed carefully. Little
girls can often be coaxed not to bite their nails by applying nail
polish.
Bedwetting is usually a developmental problem that can be
worked out once the child is old enough to cooperate in a program
to stretch his bladder and make it larger.
Tics are involuntary movements of head, eyelids, face, arms or
other body parts. Some children clear their throats. Some children
cough. Some children stutter. These are all problems that improve
if undue attention is not applied to the child.
Just as a newborn explores the world through sucking, it is
normal for children as they grow older to explore other parts of
their bodies. They find it pleasurable to touch penis and vaginal
areas. Repetitive touching is masturbation. Masturbation is a part
of normal development Children should learn such activity is a pri-
vate activity and is not accepted in public.
Head banging is rarely of such severity as to need attention.
Rarely a child will bang his head with such force that a football hel-
met or foam padding is recommended for protection.
Additionally, some children grind their teeth when they sleep.
This does not mean they have worms. It does mean they may grind
down their teeth if the grinding is excessive. The dentist may need
to make a bite plate for the child to wear while sleeping to prevent
damage to the teeth.

Indians.
Inventors, Builders, and
Homemakers...
Mrs. Baxley's second graders
concocted a soup that included
all but the kitchen sinkl There
was broccoli, cauliflower, bell
pepper, onion, garlic, meat, pota-
toes, carrots, spices oh my -
what spices! It was spi-cyl but,
all the kids took some home and
seemed to like what they had
made.
Miss Mary's first grade made
butter and cheese Tuesday. They
churned the butter in glass jars.
The cheese was tasty.
They also built a wave ma-
chine and studied wave action
and will make tornadoes Friday.
Mrs. Colbert's fifth graders
have completed a unit of symbols
of the American democracy. Sev-
eral students chose -to write on
the Liberty Bell. We present a few
to you.
September 1752 was the first
time any American ever saw the
Liberty Bell. The bell gave a loud,
echoing bong-g-g then it cracked.
The colonists sent the bell to John
Pass and his assistant, John
Stowe. They recast the bell. Then
then rang it. It sounded like two
coal scuttles being banged togeth-
er. So John Pass and John Stowe
took the bell down and recast it
for the third time. It was ready by
,June. They hung it in the State
House Tower. It was finally the
right sound. This inscription is on
one side of the bell: "Proclaim Lib-
erty throughout the land to all the
inhabitants thereof'. This refers to
the freedom of religion in Pennsyl-
vania.
By Betty Ingramm
September 1752 was the first
time any American .ever saw the
Liberty. Bell. When the bell first
rang it cracked. It was recast by
John Stowe and John Pass. But
when it was rung, it made and
ugly noise like two pails had
banged together. So they told Pass
and Stowe to recast a good bell,
not a bad one. So they took their
time, but they misspelled Pennsyl-
vania. The bell now made a good
noise. In 1777 the British were
marching into Philadelphia and
thought they would melt the bell to
use for ammunition. So the colo-
nists hid it in a basement of a
church in Allentown. The church
was called Zion High German Re-
formed Church. The church itself
was used as a military hospital
for wounded soldiers from George
Washington's army. The bell
stayed in Allentown until the Brit-
ish left Philadelphia in June of
1778. The bell rang over and over
again when the U.S. Constitution
was adopted in 1778. The Liberty
Bell got this name from an anti-
slavery booklet. The bell cracked
again and now is in a museum in
front of Independence Hall. Today
the Liberty Bell is cracked and si-
lent, but once it was the voice of a
new nation.
By Crystal
Everybody's writing in Mrs.
Arnold's fourth grade reading
class. Students were asked to
think of a word that described
themselves, for each letter of the
alphabet. They wrote sentences
for all the words. The finished
- product was an "ABC About Me"
story.
The students learned some
word processing skills on the
computer with the Magic Slate
program. Each story was typed
into the computer along with a
chosen graphic and was then
printed out.
The students displayed their
writings on a special bulletin
board entitled, "I'm a Winner!"

(Dental 'Health

FRANK D. MAY, D.M.D.



-. WHY A BRIDGE?


Is it really necessary to re-
place adult's missing teeth with
a fixed bridge or partial denture?
The answer is a definite YES!
The reasons are quite simple.
When a tooth is lost, the ad-
jacent teeth and the tooth
(above or below) which acts as a
;'!+ing partner, lose the support,
strength and stabilizing influ-
ence which the lost tooth once
provided. The remaining teeth
will be the subject to many prob-
lems such as drifting, abnormal-
ly exposed decay-prone areas
and, worst of all, periodontal dis-
ease. (The single largest cause
of tooth loss in adults.)
The loss of just one tooth, if
not replaced by a fixed bridge or


partial denture, will more than
likely, ultimately cause the loss
of more and more teeth. In many
patients, it is only a matter of
time until the destruction is com-
plete.
The dental arch was de-
signed by nature to have a com-
plete set of teeth one helping
and protecting the other. Replac-
ing missing teeth with a dental
appliance will maintain this de-
sign as well as your smile and
ability to eat properly.

Explains Law to Young Men


In commemoration of Black
History Month, members of "Pro-
ject: Mold A Male" traveled to
Panama City on February 8, to
attend an awareness workshop.
Efforts are being made as often as
possible to expose these young
men to information that will help
them to make rational decisions
in their daily life. The theme of
the workshop was 'YOU AND
THE LAW". Topics discussed
were: The Courts, Judges, and
the Clerk of Court; The State's At-
torney, the Public Defender, and
Legal Services; Small Claims
Court, Civil and Criminal Courts;
Landlord/Tenant and Eviction;
Overview of Criminal Law; and
Law School.
Those in attendance from
Port St. Joe were: Devon Thomas,
Donald Fountain, Michael Thom-
as, Andre Thomas, Lorenzo Rob-
erts, Bill Wyatt Jr., Fred Willis,
Dennis Thomas, Zyris Hill, Tyrek
Thomas, Cedrick Alexander, Jeff
Dixon, Greg Julius, and Jasmine
Thomas.
Appreciation is expressed to
Attorney Smiley for his commit-
ment to those he serves. he spon-
sors a series of these workshops
annually. It's good that Gulf
County can boast that he is a
good example of the kind of per-

Famous Women of American Revolution


The Port St. Joe Chapter of the Daughters of the American Rev-
olution sponsored an essay contest in each of the Gulf County
schools during American History Month. The essays were to deal
with the role of women in making history. Last week, awards
were presented to the four winners in the writing contest at the
regular meeting of the DAR Wednesday at noon. The Star will
print the winning essays during the next four weeks. Printed be-
low is the first of the four essays, written by Tina Theresa Klope,
a student of Port St. Joe High School.

Each year the St. Joseph Bay Chapter, Daughters of the American
Revolution sponsors an American History Month essay contest. The win-
ners of the contest were guest speakers for the February 19th' meeting at
the Garden Center.
The contest results for first place were: Sarah Vaughn, grade five;
Faith Christian. Sarah is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Tim Vaughn of
Port St. Joe. Jason Shoaf, grade 6, Faith Christian. Jason is the son of
Mr. and Mrs. Stuart Shoaf of Port St. Joe. Tina Klope, grade 7, Port St.
Joe High. Tina is the daughter of Margaret Klope of Mexico Beach. Came-
ron Totman, grade 8, Wewahitchka High School. Cameron is the daugh-
ter of Mr. and Mrs. Larry Mathes of Wewahitchka and Mr. and Mrs.
Glynn Totman of Apalachicola.
The subject of the essay was "Famous Women of the American Revo-
lution". Participation is designed to help students in terms of their ability
to do such papers as well as their gaining an appreciation for the men
Sand women of this period who endured sacrifices and hardships to make
this country great, and for the ideals which motivated them.

t During the time of the Ameri-,
can Revolution, women were
thought to be and treated as infe-
rior to men. But some women,
such as Debora Sampson, did not
approve of this classification. Per-
haps this is why Debora Samp-
son went to war. She may have
wanted to prove that women
could be more than home keepers
and child bearers.

*What if the alternator warning
light comes on? In a newer car,
if the battery is okay, you'll be
able to keep driving a little
while longer. Turn off excess
electrical equipment to con-
serve battery power.
*But, be careful to look for oth-
er signs of trouble. The trouble
may be caused by failure of the
"fan belt" which, on some cars,
also drives the water pump and
cooling fan. If that's the case,
the car will start overheating
soon.
*Car theft Is up all across the
country. Rule number one is to
lock the car and take the key.
An alarming number of stolen
cars were left running "just a
minute" as drivers ran an er-
rand.
*Brake linings should always
be replaced in pairs both
front brakes or both rear ones -
to avoid the unequal friction
that might make the car pull to
one side when brakes are ap-

i-. Debora wasiborn-,on Decem-,
ber 17, 1'760., in Plympton. Mas-
sachusetts. She was the oldest of
three daughters and three sons of
Jonathan and Debora Sampson,
who were farmers. Her father had
abandoned them when Debora
was around six years old. It was
after he had found that his share
of his father's estate was a lot
less than he had expected and he,
started drinking. From the age of
10 until she was 18, Debora was
bound out as a -servant in the
home of Jeremiah Thomas. It was
during this time that she received
what little education she had by
attending school part time and
from the Thomas children. She
also learned her domestic skills
there. After her indentured time
was over she taught for six
months at the public school in
Middleborough, where she had
gone.
Knowing that women could
not join the armed forces, Debora
made men's clothes, put them on
and walked from Middleborough
to Boston and then on to Belling-
ham where she enlisted, under
the name of Robert Shirtleff, on
May 20, 1782, in the Continental
forces.
Debora was a very capable
young lady and it was that and
her above average height, strong
features, her stamina and an
ability to adapt to her new situa-
tion that made it possible for her


to hide her true identity for al-
most a year and a half. She
fought in several battles and she
cared for her own wounds so she
would not be found out. But, her
sex was finally discovered when
she was hospitalized with a fever
in Philadelphia. So, on October
25, 1783, she was honorably dis-
charged by General Henry Knox
at West Point.
Debora returned to Massa-
chusetts and lived with an uncle
in Sharon. She went back to
women's clothes and later met
and married a farmer named
Benjamin Gannett on April 7,
1785. Debora and Benjamin had,
three children; Earl Bradford,
Mary and Patience. Debora's sto-
ry attracted attention and Her-
man Mann published an exagger-
ated version of her story. The
touring gave her a lot of personal
satisfaction and, of course, some
money. It also made it possible
for her to visit with General John
Paterson, one of her former com-
manding officers. He probably
helped Debora get a pension from
the government.
Debora received her first pen-
sion in 1792 of 34 pounds plus
interest from the date of her dis-
charge. then in 1804 when Debo-
ra was in poor health and short
on '"mhney Paul Revere wrote a let-
,ter in her behqaf to.!a member of
.congress. On March 11, '"805,
she was given a monthly pension
of four dollars which went back to
January 1, 1803, and was later
increased.
After Debora died her hus-
band petitioned the government
for a pension claiming to be in
great need and having two daugh-
ters who were dependent on her

charity. He claimed that he had
paid heavy medical bills for his
wife for many years which result-.
ed from her military service. The
slow response of the government
provided a payment of $466.66
which was equal to a pension of
$80.00 per year from March 4,
1831, until January, 1837, the
date that Benjamin Gannett died.
Debora had died in Sharon in
1827 at 66 years of age. She is
buried in Sharon. at the Rockridge
Cemetery.
No one really knows why De-
bora Sampson went to war. What
would make a woman at that
time in history risk her life and
her reputation? It couldn't have
been to support herself; she*
taught at the school in which she
got her education. Could it have
been a strong feeling of patriot-
ism? Few women even dared ex-
press their feelings much less go
to war over them. Or, perhaps
she wanted to be a part of the
biggest decision ever made in the
history of the United States.
Whatever her reason for going to
war, it is people like Debora.
Sampson that have the dedica-
tion and courage to stand up for
their feelings and beliefs that
have made our country what it is
today.

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 expenseof all solid, waste oper-
ations. 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 per-.
sons who generate it, the County will save over $250,000.00-and provide an
equitable system of payment.

EFFECTIVE NOW
A. Garbage Compactor Stations at Port St. Joe and Wptappo
are closed. County residents should call Argus Services t (QQ001
273-5838 and arrange for weekly garbage pick-up.

B. Changes in Hours of Operation for County Landfill sites

Recycling containers at the St. Joe Compactor site will be relo-
cated to the Recycling Building adjacent to the Compactor site.

C. The Board of County Commissioners desires that each
County resident act responsibly to see that their table garbage
and trash is collected and disposed of lawfully in accordance
with this notice. Unauthorized disposal of garbage in the woods,

dents. Michelle Roberts, Heather
Whitfield, Angela St. Clair, and
Matthew Birmingham are just
some of the students who have

Third Year Anniversary
It Is hard to believe but this
month marks my third anniver-
sary writing this little column. I
have enjoyed each week of writing
informational, creative, and Just
plain 'fun' articles. I've had a lot
of positive feedback on the col-
umn and I appreciate it Now on

Busy Week for Pre-K Classes
Pre-K teacher and aide, Joyce
Groom and Janice Nelson, and
their really little ones have had a
busy week. On Monday, they
went to the Bay County Library,
on Tuesday, they went to the Wild
and Wooly exhibit at the Panama
City Jr. Museum, and on Thurs-
day, they toured the Panama City
Airport. We all know a picture is
worth a thousand words and I'm
sure a field trip is worth Just as
much.
Spotlight on Parents
Jan Traylor
Those who know her will
agree she'll go the extra mile. If
she, the room mother, every par-
ty will go as smooth as silk, If a
teacher needs something, she'll
have it there for them, and what-
ever odd job is called for, Jan will
get it done. Take this example...
Joyce Groom had bought her Pre-
K some heart-shaped Valentine
balloons. Thinking she would get


ahead for her day's work, she
asked Jan Traylor if she could get
the helium in them the day be-
fore.. Jan .filled the balloons. The
next morning when Miss Joyce
came in, the balloons were all ly-
ing on the floor, all pooped out. In
a panic, Miss Joyce untied each.
one- (and believe me this is no
easy feat) and was pondering on
what to do. Remembering her
reputation, Miss Joyce called Jan
and asked if she could possibly
get some more helium. "No prob-
lem," says Jan, "Just bring them
up." Janice Nelson made a run to
the bank and presto, the Pre-K
students party was saved. We


have a lot of parents like this and
we appreciate them.
Upcoming Event: A 50 Year

There's Lots toDoto


Get Your Lawn Off


A Good Strong, Start


By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
As our lawns begin to come
back, now and for the next few
months, we begin to evaluate how
much damage the dry, cold win-
ter did to our grass. There is
much to do to help lawns get off
to a strong start.
When St. Augustine grass
grows too well, it quickly develops
a thick depth as old runners did
and new grass Just grows over
them. The ensuing "sponginess"
is a serious unhealthy situation

Quincy Man
Holds State
Crappie Record
In an era of high-tech fishing
gear, Ben F. Curry, Sr. of Quincy
took the old-fashioned approach
to land a state record 3-pound,
13.25-ounce black crappie. He
used a cane pole.
Curry, 67, caught the crappie
on the morning of January 21
while fishing a minnow from his
dock on Lake Talquin in Gadsden
County. The fish measured 16.5
inches long and had a girth of
15.25 inches.
"I've been fishing for over 50
years trying to catch something
like this," Curry said. "I've fished
many different ways on the lake
but I-really. enjoy cane pole fish-
ing for bream from my back
yard."
Florida's previous black crap-
pie record was 3 pounds, 8 ounc-
es caught by Ronald K. Prevatt of
Ocala in 1988 on Lake Dias in
Volusia County.
Curry's record black crappie
will be recognized in the Florida
Game and Fresh Water Fish Com-
mission's state record freshwater
fish program.


as roots barely reach into the soil
and grow mainly in an area we re-
fer to as the "thatch" area. To
clear up some of these old run-
ners, especially those that have
been killed from this winter, we
suggest making the first mowing
(sometime around March 1st) a
"short" one. To do this, mow the
lawn at the normal height, and
remove all the clippings. Next,
lower the mower blade a notch
and re-mow the lawn, again bag-
ging or raking up all the clip-
pings. Continue to do. this until

the blade just barely kicks up
some soil in the high spots. A
good strong mower, and a sharp
blade should be able to remove
most of those old dead runners
and thus prevent this spongy
condition from occurring this
summer. Once done, fertilize the
lawn with its first fertilizer of the
season and then water this in
well.
If the above was undertaken,
suddenly there are these piles of
old dead grass clippings mixed
with soil. What can we do with it


p
-w


in light of our county's attempt to
reduce the amount of yard waste
going to land fills? While this ma-
terial would not make a good
mulch, it would make an excel-
lent addition to a compost pile. In
a person's vegetable garden, this
can also be a valuable soil
amendment. Simply layer it over
the ground and then rototill it in
to a depth of 6 inches. Another
option is to dig a long trench, 12
inches deep, and Just place it in a
layer 3-4 inches deep in the bot-
tom. Place the removed soil back
in over it and this will create a 3-
4 inch mounded bed which can
be used to plant vegetables on, or
any other plant which requires
slight mounding to perform well.'
Concerning fertilizer applica-
tions, there is still debate among
authorities as to the best time to
apply that first spring fertilizer.
With respect to lawns, most sug-
gest around the last week of Feb-

ruary to the middle of March. If
weeds have been a problem in the
past, a weed and feed product is
to be used, better weed control is
achieved by going with a late Feb-
ruary application. If, on the other
hand winter lasts into April, it
would be better to wait until the
middle of March to fertilize.
What's the weatherman say?
If you used a weed and feed
product, use the right type! Those
used for St. Augustine lawns are
not safely used on Bahia and vice
versa. Keep well away from shal-
low-rooted trees and flower beds.
Calibrate the spreader for ac-
curate delivery,' and remember
that too much fertilizer often just


bums a plant temporarily, but'
too much weed killer can kill it.
What type fertilizer to use on
a lawn is less debated. The Uni-
versity of Florida has demonstrat-
ed that common grass types
grown in Florida sands use the
macro-nutrients (nitrogen, phos-
phorus and potassium) in a ratio
approaching 4-1-2. While one
could apply those nutrients in
other ratios such as 1-1-1, 7-1-1,
6-1-2, etc., a lot of washed mate-
rial will be left behind as the
grass "picks and chooses" what it
wants. We suggest using the
most commonly available 4-1-2 or
1-0-1 type fertilizers called a 16-
4-8 to 15-0-15.
