Fishermen Show Their Muscle At FMC Hearing


Motorized Caravan
Transports Scores of
Gulf County Citizens

Commercial fishermen turned out in a
show of force, some 1500 strong in Cedar Key
Saturday to voice their opposition to the pro-
posed banning of the use of nets along the
shores of Florida.
Making their appearance before a meeting
of the Marine Fisheries Commission, they came
in numbers too Alarge to get in the hearing
room. Most of them listened to the testimony
. and, proceedings over a loud speaker system
set up outside. The 200 who got inside made a
strong argument to the FMC about why the
proposed law should be scrapped.
The sports fishing delegation wasn't nearly
so large-about 300 strong-but also were al-
lowed to have 200 representatives in the meet-
ing room. Deputies were stationed outside to
maintain the status quo although the meeting
and demonstrations were not violent.
Both organizations wooed the support of
the crowds with the fishermen serving the Bib-
lical loaves and fishes and the sportsmen serv-
ing dinner on china plates.
NO LACK OF SPECIES
The fishermen argued that there was no
lack of species in the waters off the state of
Florida. 'The lack of fish landings has been
brought on by the restrictions and regulations
of the Marine Fisheries," one fisherman
claimed.
Citing such restrictions as regulation of net
size, quotas, banning of the taking of certain
species, prohibiting fishing on the week end .
all have added to the diminished catches ac-
cording to testimony at the hearing.
The fishermen maintained that there needs
'to be some rules arid regulations, but charged
thatthfeproducts"aliveand well".
SPORTSMEN SAY NETS DAMAGING
Sport fishing representatives, on the other
hand, charged that the net fishermen had been
depleting the resource to the point of extinc-
tion.
They claimed the continued practice of net-
ting would continue to erode marine life popu-


Commercial fishermen and a smattering of
sports fisheFmen; mill-around outside the hear-

lations.
Chairman Thomas Frazer let it be known
that he supported the ban the nets concept but
offered a solution to the objections. He in-
structed leaders of both the sports fishing and
commercial fishing groups to get together and
come up with an agreement for division of the


ing auditorium of the Florida Marine Fisheries Gulf County's commercial fishermen attended to
commissionin in Crystal River Saturday. Scores of protest proposed actions of~theFMC...


resource by the time of the Commission's June
meeting, or he would have a proposal to make.
He warned that regardless of what transpired
as a result of the conference, the Florida Con-
servation Association would attempt to place a
Constitutional Amendment on the ballot next
year to do away with the use of nets in the tak-


Ing of fish and shrimp.
CARAVAN FROM GULF COUNTY
A caravan of vehicles attended the meeting
from Gulf County. A bus loaded with support-
ers and dozens of cars left in the early morning
hours in order to be in Crystal River for the
9:00 a.m. hearing Saturday.

Curbside

Service
The City Commission
discussed changing the
garbage collection method
to a curbside service Tues-
day night at the Commis-
sion meeting.
Acting on the sugges-
tion of Public Works Su-
perintendent, Frank Hea-
ly, the Board is
considering the service in
order to remain in the gar-
bage collection business in
an economical fashion.
Healy said the change
would off-set some of the
costs associated with re-
cycling, collection and dis-
posal The City must haul
garbage to the incinerator
in Bay County and the
trash to the Gulf County
landfill.
The County is working
up a fee schedule to
charge for tipping fees at
the landfill to recover
some of their costs. The
city would provide carts
for the service.


snatches of the Constitution City
theme in sidewalk inserts, trees
and landscaping was shown to
the Commission by Dr. Peter
Prugh of the University of Florida,
contracted by the Commission to
design a unique downtown de-
sign.
Prugh said the design wasn't
"written in stone" but was merely
a suggestion to present to the
public for approval.
Working on the Constitution-
al City theme, Prugh had used
the sidewalk sections to form
plaques and other reminders of
the old city of St. Joseph hosting
the Constitution Convention for
the State of Florida in 1838.
Beginning with Reid Avenue,
the entire downtown section of
Port St. Joe Is being targeted for
redevelopment.

Chamber to
Conduct Survey
The Gulf County/Port St. Joe
Chamber of Commerce will be
conducting a survey of the
County for. the next three weeks
to ascertain shopping habits of Its
citizens, according to Tamara
Laine, executive director.
'The purpose of the survey is
to find out why people shop else-
where, what they buy and what
services would make them shop
in Gulf County if they were of-
fered here," Laine said.
The survey is being made as
a project of a Chamber commit-
tee, chaired by Steve Richardson,
charged with ways to encourage
commerce in Gulf County.
The survey will be printed in
next weeks' issue of The Star.

THE STAR

PAGE TWO THURSDAY, APRIL 9,1992


Reconsider
Feelings are running higher than we thought concerning the
discontinuance of the Wewahitchka-Port St. Joe football sched-
ule for even one year. You would think It was a-kin to the
enlargement of the national debt or something, in matters or im-
portance. The matter Is on top of the list in all the places of
gathering and the feelings seem to be 100 to 1 against interrup-
tion of the schedule.
Then there 'is the matter given as to the reason for the dis-
ruption. Officially, it was said to be because the Wewahitchka
coaching staff thought their team would be too young and inex-
perienced. Sort of like last season's Sharks playing teams like
Marianna, Jefferson County and Havana.
This reason doesn't sit too well with the rabid football buffs,
in Port St. Joe or in Wewahitchka.
What really rankles those we have heard express themselves
is that the decision was made in January and was more or less
kept under wraps until now. We know that those involved are
going to say the decision was there on the record for everyone to
see and we're going to counter with the fact that no press confer-
ence was called or written announcement sent out which would
have been the case if the teams were signing a pact to begin a
schedule for the first time. Who would have thought that such a
revolting development could have come to pass?
The official reason for curtailment of the schedule just
doesn't wash, especially with the signing of a contract with Boni-
fay by Wewahitchka. Bonifay is as large, or larger than Port St.
Joe. Bonifay had a record of 0-10 last year, while Port St. Joe
had a sparkling record of 1-9.
For instance, consider the current baseball season.-Wewa-
hitchka's mature team has beaten Port St. Joe's two times out of
two. Is anybody considering discontinuing the series just be-
cause their mature team has beaten Port St. Joe's young team?
For what it's worth, we think the physical reasoning just
doesn't hold water. The economics of continuing the series does.
In these tough economic times, it will cost less to travel between
Port St. Joe and Wewahitchka than it will cost to travel between
Bonifay and Wewahithcka. Then there is the fact that the Port
St. Joe-Wewahithcka game is the biggest money maker both
teams have. That should be taken into consideration. The
neighborhood rivalry is also a healthy thing. We think it should
be perpetuated. It costs neither team nothing in prestige or Dis-
trict standings no. matter what the outcome of the game. If any-
thing Port St. Joe stands to lose more.
Lame duck coaches decided the matter with some prodding
from upstairs. Let the present athletic directors and coaches re-
consider the subject and make their own decision.



Mae Culpa

We're not Jewish, but this Jewish expletive best expresses
our feelings in this particular matter. It expresses our consterna-
tion, our frustration and our commiseration at having failed to
warn you, the reader, of the pending Daylight Saving Time last
: week. Of course, it is pending no longer. It's a reality. And, we
:' failed to notify you ahead of time. :- .
SL There is no 'excuse. We have properly-rent our clothes and
poured ashes on our head. We have sat on the throne of repen-
tance. We knew it was coming weeks ago, and it slipped -up on
us without us knowing it... obviously!
It's even marked on the calendar we keep on. the wall over
our personal computer station, in order to be a constant remin-
der of such things. But it's one of those modem calendars and
the marking was confusing. At first glance it appeared as if the
date for changing over was this week rather than last week.
We have been chastened again and again, since last Thurs-
day. Bill Barlow even caught us at church and dressed us down.
"My wife missed Sunday School just because you failed to warn
.us of Daylight Saving Time!"
That wasn't the only "dressing down" we received. It has been
done with considerable regularity, in all manners, and with feel-
ing.
We were even responsible for a heated argument between a
husband and wife. To this day they aren't speaking because of
the disagreement they had over the change of time. simply be-
cause we forgot to include the notice in last week's paper. "Wes-
ley always notifies us of when the time changes, so it isn't doing
it this week, and that's final!" were her parting words as she
slammed the door shut.
It's tough being the "starter" for the county. Having all that
.responsibility builds our stress quotient to unbelievable levels at
times.

I'd never heard it so quiet on
Woodrow Kennon's front porch.
Bubba and Earl tended to bash
heads first and ask questions lat-
er. They actually believed Jerry
Lee Lewis was coming to the high
school auditorium Friday night!,
I "Fellas, we'll just have to tell
them it's all an April Fool's Day
joke." Buddy was searching for a


way out, this whole thing had
been his idea.
'Who's going to tell them?"
More silence.
"How'd they find out about it?
LaRenda and Mary E. were the
only two we told, they're the only.
ones dumb enough to really think
Jerry Lee would come here."
"We told Mary E. and LaRen-
da and you ask how Bubba and
Earl found out! I bet those girls
are on the phone right now call-
ing everybody in town."
"It's Mrs. Ingram's fault. If
she hadn't a'taken our match box
football away we'd been too busy
in study hall to think -up such a
story." Buddy was sounding des-
perate now.
"Why didn't we just read that


Charles Dickens story like we
were suppose-"
"Listen," Buddy cut Yogi
short, "it may not be too late.
Squeaky, run in and call LaRen-
da. Tell her the truth. Kesley, you
hot foot it over to Mary E.'s. She
likes you.
As I climbed off the rail and
started down the steps, Mr. Clem
Hartsfelt rumbled up in his old
Ford truck. Mr. Hartsfelt lived all
the way over on the far side of
Sugar Creek, way back up in
Johnson Hollar. You couldn't get
further out than the Hartsfelt
place. Mr. Clem very rarely got to
town.
"Howdy boys, I bet ya'll are
all excited about the Jerry Lee
Lewis show Friday night. Just


think, the Killer himself
Yogi stuck his head in Woo-
drow's store and yelled,
"Squeaky, forget about that
phone callI"
'What's the matter boys? Cat
got your tongueJi- I've never see
ya'll so quiet. Kesley, you look
awful pale. You sick boy?"
"No, sir," he walked in the
store, "............but I'm fixing to
be."
"Let's go home. Maybe things
will be better tomorrow."
'Yeah, what did that skinny
lady in that long movie say, 'To-
morrow is another day'."
I like'en to. have choked on
my brown beans and cornbread
at supper when Leon asked Dad-
dy for two dollars "for the Jerry
Lee Lewis concert." But folks,
them beans near about came
back north when Mom said, "We
might all go.\ It's not every day
that we get a person that famous
to come to. our school."
Tomorrow was another day
all night. I spotted the banner
tied across the gym while I was
still half a mile away. JERRY LEE
LEWIS IN CONCERT. The music
club was selling "The Killer Is
Coming" buttons for 50 a piece.
Instead of ringing the bell to
change classes, some brilliant
soul in the front office would play
a 25 second excerpt from one of
the "Killer's" classic hits.
"How'd we get into this?"
"What are we going to do
when Jerry don't show up Friday
night?."
"Can we call him?"
'Yeah, right, 'hey, Jerry Lee,
this is your good buddy; Yogi.
Look, me and Squeaky and Kes-
ley are in a little bind over here. If
you're not doing anything Fri-
day'......he's probably standing by
the phone right now waiting for
us to call."
'"What are we going to do?"
"How about the circus? We
could join it in Paducah. Travel
with them for a few years.;......."
"It's Mary E.'s and LaRenda's
fault for believing such a stupid
story." .......
"Well, fellas, it can't get any
worse." :
. That afternoon we had, a spe-
cial assembly program. Mayor
Y.D. Moore was going to address
us. Funny, I'd never, ever seen
him at school before. He pro-
claimed Friday as officially Jerry
Lee Lewis Day. Mr. Warren said
school would dismiss at noon Fri-
day so everyone 'can get ready'."
Thursday night they had a
Jerry Lee Rock-a-thon at the Po-
lar Bar. Bubba emceed it. People
were getting worked into a frenzy
over this thing.
"Fellas, it's tonight. What are
we going to do?"
"How about a smoke bomb in
the crowd right before show time?
Bobby Ridley and his volunteer
fire boys will make everybody go
home."
"Listen, my Daddy's already
going to kill me for this, I don't
want him to kill me twice."

Tomato Gravy Doesn't Go On Top of Turnip Greens


SOME PEOPLE HAVE eating
habits which are not all that ap-
petizing to watch. Everything
from putting mayonnaise on grits
to catsup on mashed potatoes.
I attend several civic club
dinners and- get exposed to all
kinds of eating habits. You might
say I should be use to them by
now.
I remember the first time I
ever saw Charlie Stevens eating
"hopping john". You know what
that is; it's blackeyed peas or but-
ter beans, or lima beans, or pinto
beans, or any kind of beans
placed on top of rice. That didn't
shock me very much because the
rice and beans have something in
common.
I remember the first time I
saw fried ice cream I didn't flinch
too bad. And an ice cream float
made out of cranberry juice is
pretty good.
I know; it all goes to the same
place to be digested and turned
into energy to keep us going. We


Etaoin Shrdlu


i


shouldn't shun anything good to
eat, nor should we balk at eating
any mixture just because it fails
to excite us gastronomically.
I'm not firiicky with my eating
but certain mixtures of food serve
to turn me off.
I CAN TAKE many foods in
stride. I like turnip greens,
stewed tomatoes and rice. I have
chosen these three vegetables be-
cause they are staples at the club
meetings which meet at the St.
Joe Motel.
Of course there are other veg-
etables too, as well as'three or
four meats invariably served eve-


by Wesley Ramsey


ry day. Sweet potatoes are one of
the specialty vegetables as well as
fried streak-o-lean bacon. It
wouldn't be a meal without these
old faithful regulars at the motel.
Bill Turner fixes them up just
right, too.
There's at least ten jillion lit-
tle cholesterols running around
in every plateful of groceries, too.
The fare, there, is like the farmers
ate while working in the fields in
days gone by. Sit down at the ta-
ble and fill up. Since most of the
service club members are from
farm families, the meals are a re-
minder of days gone by and recall
the memory of "momma's" cook-


ing.
BUT, I DIGRESS from my
original subject. I started out tell-
ing you of eating habits I have
known.
The situation which brought
this subject to mind in the first
place had to do with a certain
Yankee trying to eat southern
food and appear to have adopted
the southern customs while he
was doing it.
One of the strangest eating
habits it has been my lot to wit-
ness, is that of New York Bronx
reared, Dr. Jim Cersosimo. The
good doctor comes to Rotary Club
dressed in his "operating room
greens" and heaps up his plate
thusly:
He takes a slab or two of
roast beef as a foundation and
proceeds to cover that with rice
and some of the gravy out of the
roast beef. Then he covers that
up with a one-inch layer or turnip
greens. Then he tops it all off with


a generous layer of tomato gravy.
Any of these dishes are deli-
cious by -themselves but are
enough to turn the stomach,
piled on top of each other.
He then sits down and cuts
all that up into one-half inch sec-
tions of his layered meal and pro-
ceeds to cover it all in catsup and
eat it!
He's trying to be very south-
ern. When Desert Storm was in
full bloom, Dr. Cersosimo was
waiting on pins and needles for
the call to go because he is flight
surgeon in reserve.
Can't you imagine what an ef-
fect he would have had on those
Arabs with his eating habits?
Just think what that would do to-
a person accustomed to eating
camel hump, fried locusts, sour
sheep milk and cooking his tea
over a fire made from cattle dungl
MAYBE IT WAS his associa-
tion with the Service and a tour
of duty overseas which messed


up his eating habits. Or maybe
his mother fed him a steady diet
of scrabble, tripe or fish cakes.
He tries to make up for his
lack of gastronomical upbringing
in a good accepted southern man-
ner. Leave him in the south a few
more years and he'll likely learn
to keep his turnip greens separat-
ed with a lavish helping of pepper
sauce to flavor them. He'll also
learn that the rice is best with the
gravy placed directly on top and
soak the entire goop with a gener-
ous helping of black pepper.
Dr. Cersosimo does have one
redeeming factor to overshadow
his glaring deficiency at trying to
enjoy true southern cooking. He
has a habit of using a generous
helping of fried chicken as sort of
a fence to pile his specialty up
against to keep it from rolling
over into his fried okra.
But another is that if you ask
him how he is doing, he will al-
most inevitably say, "Another day
in Paradise!"

Rejoice, Dear Heart.s!
Dave Gardner, a Southern comedian of some fame in the
1960s, on his album, "Rejoice, Dear Hearts," gave his definition
of true love. A 19-year-old boy can kiss an 18 year-old girl and
think he's in love, but he's not, Dave said. The .19-year-old boy
can kiss a 25-year-old woman and think he's in love but, dear
hearts, that's not true love. But, Dave lamented, let that same
19-year-old boy kiss a 45-year-old woman and, dear hearts, RE-
JOICEI Thatis true lovely
The News Herald, on Friday, April 3, 1992, reported a case of
true love that was of interest and happened right here in our
neck-of-the-woods. It (the article) was datelined Shalimar, but it
all began, in Crestview, Florida, a small town about half way be-
tween Pensacola and Tallahassee.
Pam Mouer, a 45-year-old former childcare assistant, is ac-
cused of having a sexual relationship with a 12-year-old boy who
also lived in Crestview. Ms. Mouer, since her arrest, has moved
from Crestview to Ft. Walton Beach, leaving behind her husband,
Roderic, and two children, a 14-year-old daughter and a 12-year-
old son. My heart goes out to them and I don't even know them. I
can Imagine what they are going through, though.
Since Ms. Mouer's departure, the article stated, the boy-
excuse me, child has become engrossed and preoccupied with
(Mouer) to the extent that he is distracted from school, can't
sleep and thinks of nothing but his" former lover, prosecutors
wrote in a bond modification motion. No kidding!
The article didn't state how the "affair" began, but Roderic
Mouer (the accused's husband) had some interesting comments
about it He stated that Ms. Mouer frequently visited the boy's
mother, who knew what was going on and even encouraged it. He
also said, according to the article, that some of the "= counters"
took place at the boy's home while his mother was there. Or e*
might be led to think that the boy's mother was pampering him,
just a little, wouldn't one? .
Roderic had more to say: "My wife.s not totally to blame. The
grandparents and parents weren't able to control the boy." My
question is, if he was out of control, did he, in fact, rape Ms.
Mouer, for six months?
The article stated that the grandparents, according to court
records, are his primary caretakers.. I wonder, If they knew what
was going on, who takes care of theih?
Other than a few courses in psychology in college, I have no
formal fraining~in mental health disorders. I would feel safe in
saying, however, that if all the facts in this article are true, that
there are some folks in both families that need to be put in a safe
place, awayffrom the public. And it's a shame, but the boy is
probably the most dangerous of the lot According to his grand-
,mother, he has placed 133 phone calls to Ms. Mouer during a
33-day period in January and February. Persistent little rascal,
isn't he?
I can't remember all the things I thought about when I was
12 years old, but I'm sure sex was on my mind much of the time.
After all, it's natural, I think, for boys and girls to think of sex at
that age. I can't remember ever thinking about having sex with a
45-year-old woman, though, and all the older women I knew only
wanted to take a belt to me. At least that's all they ever indicated
to me. If they had something else on their minds, they never let'
me know about it. I must have been an ugly kid!
But times change and things were certainly different with Ms.
Mouer and her daughter's 12-year-old friend. As twisted and lu-
dicrous as all this sounds and is, in my opinion -it had to be
true love, dear hearts.
By the way, Ms. Mouer received a 10-year probation sentence
for pleading no contest to performing a lewd and lascivious act
on a child. This makes me wonder what the sentence would have
been for a man if the sex of the two had been reversed. Ten life
sentences and 99 years is what he would.have gotten and de-
served. What's good for the gander is good for the goose!

Bottles Travel All the Way to Mexico *

Experiment Lands Bottles All Along the Gulf Coast


"From Port St. Joe to Browns,-
ville, Texas in a bottle," should be
the name of this article. 'Fifth
grade students of Cathy Colbert
of Highland View Elementary
School had an experiment with
the tides of the Gulf of Mexico,
conducted with messages ,in a
bottle wind up on Boca Chica
Beach, near Brownsville.
One of the 15 bottles sent out
was found by Marlene Harrison, a
winter visitor from Berryville, Ar-
kansas. Mrs. Harrison found the
bottle while walking on the
beach. She noticed something in-
side the Pepsi bottle with the
wrapper torn off. She opened it
and saw this message written on
a piece of paper inside: "Hello, my
name is Kara McDaniel. I'm in
the fifth grade at Highland View
Elementary. We are studying
ocean currents. If you find my
bottle please. call me at my school
and tell me where you found it.
We could. chart the current's
movement Thank You."
Kara and her fellow students
in the sixth grade sent out 15
bottles .in September of last year
by taking them to the Peninsula
and tossing them into the Gulf.
Herman Jones, another teacher
at Highland View Elementary
took the bottles to the launch site
in his boat and tossed them over-


board.
"I wanted something more
practical than just reading charts
in books to study the currents,"
Cathy Colbert said of her stu-
dents' experiment.
Five of the bottles have been
found all the way from Pensacola,
Florida to LaPesca, Mexico, about
200 miles south of Brownsville.
They started showing up in No-
vember of last year. The bottle in
La Pesca, Mexico was found in
November. Another report of a
finding in Brownsville came in
December, but the finder did not
give his name.
The strongest current in the
Gulf of Mexico is a stream known
as the Loop. That stream, howev-
er, flows opposite the route the
student's bottles evidently fol-
lowed.
Jeff Brown, a marine biologist
with the National Marine Fisher-
ies Service in St. Petersburg, said
"I guess those bottles were car-
ried down by an unnamed stream
that runs against the Loop near
the shores of the Gulf."
; "But I also tend to believe
that winds and other surface forc-
Ses pushed the bottles in that di-
Srection."
Brown guessed that strong
winds had as much to do with


the path followed by the bottles
as the currents did. #.
All the students at Highland
View Elementary know is that it


was an interesting project follow-
ing their bottles to their final des-
tination all along the Gulf of Mex-
ico shoreline.


These fifth grade students point to where their message bottles
were picked up from the Gulf of Mexico. From left, they are, Kai
McDaniel, Brownsville, TX, Carl Hopper, Brownsville, TX, Jason M
Richardson, La Pesca, Mexico and Andrew Tillery, Pensacola.

CHILDREN'S ~ALTH FORUM
Automobile Safety
and the Teenager -
Facts and Statistics


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

1. Automobile and motorcycle accidents are the leading cause
of disability and death in the adolescent
2. 16 to 19 year olds account for 8 percent of the whole popula-
tion, but this age group accounts for 17 percent of the vehicular fa-
talities.
3. Drivers education classes have increased the rate .of acci-
dents by placing more young drivers on the road.
4. Alcohol consumption Is a factor underlying most automobile
fatalities. (Lowering the drinking age to 18 increased auto fatalities
by 5 percent.)
5. 63 percent of automobile fatalities involve passengers in an
automobile driven by an adolescent.
6. Most of the accident fatalities occur between 8 p.m. and 4
a.m. and involve an adolescent male driver.
In the light of the above statistics, what can you as a parent do
to improve the current situation?
1. Begin early to teach your child to stand firm in his behaviors
and beliefs.
2. Show responsibility by driving carefully and always wearing
your seat belt. A good example goes much further than a sermon.
3. Provide recreational activities for your teens that do not re-
volve around alcohol, drugs or sex.
4. Let your teen know you are always ready to go pick him or
her up at night if they get into a situation not of their making.
5. Establish, a reasonable curfew and adhere to it.
6. Continue to support drinking age of 21 and strict enforce-
ment of driving laws.

April Is Child Abuse Prevention Month
Locally, Guidance Clinic Treated 73 Cases In April of 1991


The Gulf County Guidance
Clinic, Inc. and the Kids Instruc-
tional Day Service (K.I.D.S.) has
announced that they have joined
with the National Committee for
Prevention of Child Abuse in ob-
serving April 1992 as "National
Child Abuse Prevention Month."


The theme for April 1992 is "Part-
ners for Prevention." This obser-
vance is one way of saying that
none of us can do it alone; child
abuse prevention is everybody's
business.
April was first declared "Child
Abuse Prevention Month" by pres-


idential proclamation in 1983.
Since then the National Commit-
tee for Prevention of Child Abuse
along with thousands of con-
cerned citizens and groups have
provided the impetus and sup-
port to continue.

sored a contest to select a design

The winning entry was de-
signed by George Whitfield, under
the guidance of Greg Burch, art
teacher at Port St. Joe High


School. His design, named "Sea-
food Combo" by the Seafood Fes-
tival committee, will appear on
the T-shirts and program covers.
All participants will receive a

of children. It is a national prob-
lem with almost 2.7 million cases
of abuse reported last year, an in-
crease of over 6 percent over the
figure in 1990. The Florida De-
partment of Health and Rehabili-
tative Services indicates that from
July 1988 to June 1989, over
100,000 reports of child abuse
and neglect were received in the
state. It is estimated that for eve-
ry one case of reported abuse,
two more cases go unreported.
Locally the Gulf County Guid-
ance Clinic, Inc. provides treat-
ment for the childhood victims of
abuse. In April 1991, 73 individu-
al cases of child abuse were in-
volved in treatment at the Guid-
ance Clinic. This represented 21
percent of the Clinic's total case-
load and cases of abuse continue
to increase.
The trauma of child abuse af-
fects children throughout their
early development. Abusive rela-
tionships for children can be a
major contributor to mental
health difficulties in adulthood as
well. Research suggests that.
abuse is a self-perpetuating cycle,
meaning that those who have
been abused as children, are
more likely to be abusive as
adults.
Mental health treatment is
helpful and effective for victims of
abuse. Community support and
financial assistance is needed to
help children and families affect-
ed by abuse. Treatment and help
is available locally by contacting
the Gulf County Guidance Clinic
in Port St. Joe at 227-1145.

Minor Element Nutrients Necessary for Ornamentals


By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
In addition to the three major
plant nutrients, nitrogen, phos-
phorus, and potassium, plants
require varying amounts of mi-
nor, or trace elements. These nu-
trients are needed in very small
quantities. Hence, the name "mi-
nor elements."
Florida's sandy soils have nu-
trient problems that make grow-
ing ornamentals very difficult,
unless you provide enough of the
essential fertilizer materials. One
of the required nutrients is man-
ganese. This element is vital to
the health and normal growth of
plants. But, it's usually deficient
in Florida soils. My information
op manganese deficiency was
provided by Exterision Urban
Horticulture Specialist Dr. Robert
Black.

NOTICE OF CONSENT ORDER
The Department of Environmental Regula-
tion gives notice of agency action of entering into a
Consent Order with James Faircloth, President,
Bryant's Landing Association, pursuant to Florida
Administrative Code Rule 17-103.110(3). The Con-
sent Order addresses the construction of the new
potable water supply system at Bryant's Landing
in Gulf County activities in the vicinity of the Chl-
pola River about one (1) mile northeast of the In-
tersection State Highway 381 and State Highway
381A at latitude 29 degrees 01 minutes 00 sec-
.onds North, and longitude 84 degrees 15 minutes
23 seconds West in Section 28, Township 5 South,
Range 9 West in Gulf County. The Consent Order
Is available for public inspection during normal
business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday
through Friday, except legal holidays, at the De-
partment of Environmental Regulation, 160 Gov-
ernmental Center, "Chapple" James Building, Pen-
sacola. Florida 32501-5794. Persons whose
substantial Interests are affected by this Consent
Order have a right to petition for an administrative
hearing on the Consent Order. The Petition must
contain the Information set forth below and must
be filed (received) in the Department's Office of
General Counsel, 2600 Blair Stone Road, Tallahas-
see, Florida 32399-2400, within 21 days of receipt
of this notice. A copy of the Petition must also be
mailed at the time of filing to the District Office
named above at the address Indicated. Failure to
file a petition within the 21 days constitutes a
waiver of any right such person has to an adminis-
trative hearing pursuant to Section 120.57. Flori-
da Statutes.
The petition shall contain the following Infor-
mation: (a) The name, address, and telephone
number of each petitioner, the Department's iden-
tification number for the Consent Order and the
county In which the subject matter or activity is lo-


rally low in most Florida soils, it's
a common deficiency problem
that's often compounded by im-
proper pH. On sandy, slightly
acid soils, where the pH is below
5.5, manganese is easily leached
from the soil. On alkaline soils,
with a pH above 6.5, the manga-
nese becomes fixed in a chemical
complex that makes it unavaila-
ble to plants. Areas around build-
ing sites are almost always defi-
cient in manganese, because too
much lime gets into the soil and
raises the pH above the desirable
level.
Manganese deficiency can be
easily mistaken for other micro-
nutrient problems. And, unfortu-
nately, you can't rely on a soil
test to determine the cause of a
specific deficiency. This- is be-
cause a soil test will show that a
particular element is in the soil.-
but, it will not indicate that a par-

is a marked reduction in the size
of leaves, branches and fruit The
third is necrosis, or dead tissue,
which may occur in patches, or

some cases, chlorosis and necro-

won't usually see all three symp-

There are two methods of
treating manganese deficiency.
One is to apply manganese sul-
fate directly to the soil. The other
is to treat plant leaves with a fo-
liar spray. Spring and early sum-

applications or follar sprays.
The amount of manganese

A Little Info

About Birthdays

What did prehistoric people
do to observe birthdays?
Nothing
Before recorded history, no-
body had yet found a way to
Measure time.
S About 6,000 years ago, the
Egyptians made up a calendar -
by watching the movements of
the sun, moon and the changing
seasons.
One of the very first birthday
parties ever recorded was given
by an Egyptian pharaoh.
Soon, other rulers and civili-
- zations followed this example.
Ancient Romans even made
Up birth dates for their gods.
On these special days they
would have parades and chariot
races.

years given' a meaning, gem-

April's flowers are the daisy
and sweet pea, its gem is the dia-
mond, and its meaning, inno-

Don Gregorio de Salinas Varona
1642? 1720
Second Governor of the Bay and Presidio of San
Joseph de Pansacola in the Principality of Nueva
Asturias

A nobleman of Spain, Don Gregorio de Sali-
nas Varona served in the Spanish Army in Fland-
ers from around the year 1662 to the year 1686,
rising from the rank of private soldier to Captain
of Infantry. On the 12th of June, 1686, he was re-
tired from that army and ordered to Mexico.
There, in late 1686, he was involved in the early
exploration and colonization of Texas.
Prior to 1709, .he was Governor of Coaguila
and Nueva Estremadura in Mexico and Texas,
Lieutenant Governor of Puebla, Mexico; Governor
and Captain General of the Province of Nueva
Leon in Mexico andgovernor and Captain General
of Honduras. On May 16th, 1709, the King of
Spain appointed him as Governor of the Bay and
Presidio of Pensacola. He served there from 1711
to some short time prior to March 14th, 1718, the
date when he was replaced by Don Juan Pedro
Matamoros de Ysla.
In the early part of the year of 1718, the
French under Antoine LeMoyne de Chateaugue,
occupied St. Joseph's Bay and constructed a fort
called Fort Crevecoeur on the mainland in the vi-
cinity of present day Palm Point. On August 30th,
1718, the Viceroy of Mexico, the Marques de Vale-
ro appointed Don Gregorio as Governor of the Pre-
sidio and Bay of San Joseph de'Pansacola in the
Province he named the Principality of Nueva Astu-
rias. Don Gregorio's son, Don Alonso de Salinas
Varona, was named as Lieutenant Governor or
Sergeant Major. Both were then ordered to go to
St. Joseph's Bay and drive out the French.
Don Gregorio arrived to this bay on the 29th
of March,- 1719 with 800 men to find that the
French had set fire to and abandoned their Presi-
dio in July of the previous year. Afterwards, it had
been discovered by Don Juan Manuel Roldan that


they had only partially burned it. He had restored
it and a few troops had beenstationed there. Don
Gregorio then apparently began construction on a
new Presidio on St. Joseph's Point, directly across
the bay from the old one the French had con-
structed in early 1718.
On January 14th, 1719, the War of the Quad-
ruple Alliance had erupted in Europe. In their
opening action in the Western Hemisphere, the
French took Pensacola on May 24th, almost with-
out firing a shot. Don Juan Pedro Matamoros de
Ysla sent word to Don Gregorio asking him for aid
but not really expecting any since Don Gregorio
was now exposed to the same dangers, that Don
Juan Pedro had been. However on May 26th, Don
Gregorio dispatched word to the Viceroy that Pen-
sacola had fallen. The news did not reach the
Viceroy until the 29th of June.
In the meantime the Governor of Cuba had
planned a joint Invasion of South Carolina along
with Don Antonio de Benavides, Governor of Flori-
da. The Fleet dispatched for this purpose under
the command of Don Alonso Carrascoa, captured
two French ships, the Cond6 de Tolosa and the
Mariscal de Villars, on July 4th of 1719. These
ships contained as prisoners, the Governor and
garrison of Pensacola.
As a result of this action, the attempt to in-
vade and seize South Carolina was abandoned
and the Fleet sailed to retake Pensacola. The Fleet
arrived to- St. Joseph's Bay on the 29th of July
and Ddn Alonso and the Royal Engineer, .Don
Bruno Caballero de Elvira, were briefed on the sit-
uation'at Pensacola and preparations were made
to retake it. On August 7th, the Spanish retook
Pensacola with little trouble and on September
17th,. the French retook it from the Spanish after
an eight hour battle and held it until November
26, 1722.
During the first part of this period, Don Greg-
orio consolidated his position by constructing the
new Presidio on St. Joseph's Point, one at present
day Eastpoint and it appears that he constructed
a blockhouse ,at present day Indian Pass. On
March 8th of 1720, a French fleet of four war-
ships and a cargo vessel, under the command of
Commodore, the Chevalier de Saugeon, anchored
in the Roadstead of St. Joseph at the mouth of St.
Joseph's Bay. However, as a result of Don Grego-
rio's preparations, they withdrew without attack-
ing.
In that year of 1720, Don Gregorio grew ill
and after receiving permission from the Viceroy,
he retired to Mexico City for treatment, leaving his
son Don Alonso as acting Governor. He never re-
turned to San Joseph and died later that same
year.
After the death of Don Gregorio, Don Jos6 Pri-
mo de Rivera was appointed Governor of the Bay
and Presidio of San Joseph de Pansacola.


One era ends and another be-
gins as the Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Servic-
es begins planting genetically su-
perior slash pines on its historic
Munson nursery.
These second-generation pine
trees, the latest development in
30 years of pine tree research,
mature in about half the time of
regular pines and are more resist-
ant to disease. The pines are the
first of 24,000 to be planted on
the Munson nursery that for
nearly 40 years has been used to
grow seedlings at Blackwater Riv-
er State Forest.


PC Club Gives

Creamer Proudly

* We Hail Award

Mr. and Mrs. Ed Creamer of
St. Joe Beach were recently pre-
sented the Proudly We Hail award
at the meeting of the Exchange
Club of Panama City at the or-
ganization's Americanism meet-
ing by President Elect Sandy At-
kins.
Creamer, Gulf County com-
missioner, and Mrs. Creamer
were introduced by Jim Fantaski,
Colonel, USAF, retired, chairman
of the Americanism Committee.
Forty-year member of the Nation-
al Exchange Club, Bob Bowen of
Mexico Beach, "discovered" the
Creamers after seeing the Ameri-
can Flag at their lovely home on
St. Joe Beach. Hank Cassani of
St. Joe Beach, a retired Navy offi-
cer like Creamer, has also been
awarded the Proudly We Hail
award.
The Exchange Club of Pana-
ma City, a member of the Nation-
al Exchange Club, one of Ameri-
ca's oldest civic clubs, restricting
membership to the 50 states and
Puerto Rico, emphasizes Ameri-
canism by recognizing those like
the Creamers who fly the Ameri-
can Flag daily.
Another standout function is
the National Prevention of Child
Abuse.

*With auto theft on the rise, car
owners are paying more atten-.
tion to devices like ignition or
fuel .cut-offs. These are so ef-
fective that many insurers offer
premium discounts for cars so
equipped.
*Does.the quality of gasoline.
you buy really matter? It can,
especially if your car is
equipped with fuel injection.
Bargain gasoline might contain
contaminants that can clog in-
jection nozzles, affecting per-
formance.
*The driver provides the best
ongoing check on the "health"
of his or her car. For example,
if the brake pedal doesn't feel
as firm as it should, it it's
spongy, be sure to have the
brakes checked.
*Suddenly wet roads are extra
slippery. If you skid, turn with,

skidding left, turn to the left.
Don't lock the brakes. That only
makes the skid worse.

air conditioning, cruise control,

Raising Their

Own Diner
Cheept Cheepl Cheept, Yepl
That's what we've been hearing
for a few days around school. The
kindergarten and fifth graders
have been watching their "ba-
bies"'- eggs for 21 days after Mr.
Roy Carter and Mrs. Louise Jones
brought them out and set them
up in the incubators. They have
observed the first hole in the shell
to the hatching of the chick to
their first peck at food. The stu-
dents found out about life and
death as some chicks did not de-
velop inside the shell. Then the
trek home began for those fami-
lies adopting them.
CTBS (Comprehensive Tests
of Basic Skills) tests were taken
last week by all students except
kindergartners. Some of the
classrooms really revved up into a
positive notion. Second graders in
Mrs. Baxley's .class wrote a' slo-
gan, put it on a banner and
strung it across their room as a'
reminder... 'We're Aiming for
Success...Headed 4 Victoryl" They
also made buttons and decorated
T-shirts to wear during the week.
Mrs. Howell's fourth graders
also wrote a slogan and wore but-
tons. Their slogan went like this:
'When It Comes to CTBS, High-
land View Hawks Are the Best!"
Miss Mary's first grade also
wore buttons that said, "I Can!"
In asking the students if the
slogans and buttons helped, their
answers were 'Yes!"

Congratulations to our new
PTA officers for 92-93: Tracle

er, vice-president; Darla Lyle, sec-

Also we'd like to thank the

the help in time and donations to

Spring is also in the air
around Hawk territory because
Miss Sandra has ben planting
bushes and trees outside on the
grounds. The sparrows and the
bar swallows are 'begnining to
build their nests at school and
the mockingbirds and starlings
are nesting in' the gym. The lady-
bugs are out and all kinds of bee-
ties even the ants and butter-
flies. It is so good to see all the
activity going on. Also, one ad-
vantage we have is watching the
activity of the Bay life the sea-
gulls and pelicans put on a dis-
play every day for the kids.
Gail Blackmon recently pre-
sented the first graders with a
program on hygiene.
The annual Book Fair is be-
ing held all this week at Highland
View. The students K-6 are all en-
joying looking and buying. Many
have even saved their money for
this purpose.

Birds Can Show Eco Damage


Bird communities may help
measure ecological damage to
land and wetland areas, accord-
ing to two Penn State research-
ers.
Mary Jo Croonquist, research
technologist in wildlife ecology,
and Dr. Robert P. Brooks, asso-
ciate professor of wildlife ecology,
have developed a technique using
bird response guilds that could
help regulatory agencies measure
watershed health. Response
guilds are groups of animals that
respond similarly to habitat dis-
turbances.
Regulatory agencies need sci-
entific tools to measure how our
activities affect streams, wetlands
and surrounding lands," says
Croonquist.
Startling facts
Land development and agri-
cultural activity have drastically
altered 70 to 90 percent of the
waterways in the eastern United
States, disturbing or eliminating
wetlands in the mid-Atlantic re-
gion. In Pennsylvania, about 80
percent of the endangered or
threatened wildlife require or use
wetlands.
The surrounding areas also
support wildlife, protect against
floods and droughts, and filter
pollutants and sediments before
they enter groundwater, lakes
and streams.
"If we come up with methods
to measure how much these
areas have deteriorated, we can

hopefully begin to restore them,"
Croonquist says. "Some animals,
such as red-winged blackbirds,
raccoons, and opossums, tolerate
disturbance better than others.
Other animals have more special-
ized requirements.
"Black bears, for example,
need wide ranges within forest in-
teriors. Belted kingfishers require
stream bank cavities for nesting
where people or cows won't
tromp.
Getting reliable data
"Response guilds may be
more reliable than looking at just
one species to measure ecological
damage," Croonquist says, "be-
cause they focus on disturbances
in the entire community rather
than just a single population.
With limited time and money, you
can't always be sure you'll find
that one species you're looking
for."
To construct the guilds, the
Penn State researchers took
known habitat requirements and
scored the sensitivity of each of
the 460 species of birds, mam-
mals, reptiles and amphibians in
Pennsylvania. They considered
how dependent the animals are
on wetlands, how specialized a
habitat they require, their diet,
endangered status in Pennsylva-
nia and for birds only how
long during the year they stay in
the area.
Making comparisons
The scores were entered into
a computer database, which al-
.lowed them to compare changes
in communities involving many
species over large areas.
Croonquist tested the tech-
nique by identifying and compar-
ing the wildlife present in a wa-
tershed greatly disturbed by
agriculture and development with
one which is relatively un-,
touched. As expected, the guilds
reflected changes in the commu-
nity structure with different levels
of human disturbance.
For instance, the percentage
of sensitive species, such as
those that use tree cavities and
forest interiors, declined in the


disturbed watershed, while
adaptable species and exotics in-
creased.
Nothing to squawk about
"Bird communities actually
told us more than the mammals,
amphibians or reptiles," Croon-
quist says. "Birds are easy to
sample you can listen to their
songs or sight them. Mammals
must be trapped. To find amphib-
ians, you have to dig around in


the soil -- and it's chancy wheth-
er or not you turn over the right
rock. Birds also leave unsuitable
sites more readily.
"We recommend that bird
communities be used to measure
ecological damage in land and
wetland areas," she adds.
The research was supported
by the U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers and the Pennsylvania Game
Commission.
