The City of Port St. Joe is
beginning to take recycling
serious.
This week a chipper was
set up at the compactor' site
on -Industrial Road. In the

Scholarship Money

Carla May accepts a check in the amount of $1,000, from
George Duren, owner of Saveway Super Marker. The check is to
be used as matching money for the duPont Scholarship Fund. The
fund provides aid for students to attend college upon their gradua-
tion from high school. Gulf County students begin earning points
to secure the scholarship money in the seventh grade.
There is $20,000 in the fund to be distrubited to the qualifying
students throughout the county, this year.


None Will

* Oppose

Incumbents
The deadline for qualifying
to seek election as City Com-
missioner passed by at 12:01
yesterday, with no opposition
signing up to become a candi-
date, according to Lynn Burge
in the Election Supervisor's of-
fice.
Incumbents Bill Wood and
.Johnnie Linton qualified to
seek re-election last week, and
will be the only candidates on
the ballot ... if there was to be
a ballot.
Since the two incumbents
were the only ones to qualify to
seek election, the City Charter
requires that no election be
held. The two incumbents are
declared the winners of the
election due to the fact they re-
ceived no opposition.
The two will begin serving
their second two-year term on
June 2, when they will be offi-
cially given the oath of office.
Wood is. operator of an insu-
rance agency in Port St. Joe
and Linton is an employee of
-the U.S. Postal Service.
Linton is also the first Com-
missioner to serve on the Board
from the newly annexed Ward.
Ridge.


EDWIN WILLIAMS


Principal Retires

Port St. Joe High School Principal Edwin Willliams has noti-
fied the Gulf County School Board of his intention to retire from
that position at the end of this month.
He lists ill health as the reason for his decision.
Williams, who has been principal of the High School for the
past 15 years, suffered a stroke in October. He is stepping down
because of his lack of rehabilitation.
The School Administrator is also a member of the City Com-
mission, and is involved in many civic activities.
Superintendent of Schools, B. Walter Wilder said the retire-
ment will leave a vacancy in the school office. "We will probably
continue to operate as we have for the past several months, with
an Acting Principal in charge. We are doing this for reasons of
economy. If things stay as they are now, we won't fill the posi-
tion until our financial picture Improves some."
The Superintendent continued by saying "I don't look for the
school economy picture to change very soon."


When the month of October
rolls around, residents of Port St.
Joe will see an increase in gar-
bage rates and possibly curbside
collection, if discussions by the
City Commission Tuesday night
becomes reality.
Commissioners are planning
on up to a dollar increase in the
collection fee and an adjusting of
the commercial fee. The commer-
cial fee will see the most changes
as the disposal of this type solid
waste has taken a sizeable in-
crease over past methods.
Commissioners are making
plans to purchase garbage cans
on wheels for every customer in
Port St. Joe and provide the cans
to make transfer of the solid
waste to the curbside, easy. This
innovation hasn't been written in
stone, yet, but public works su-
perintendent Frank Healy has
highly recommended it to assist
the City's recycling program. Re-
cycling will be considered in the
new proposed garbage cans, also.
The reason for curbside pick-
up is to offset the disposal costs.
The, City has put anew chip-
per to work this week at the recy-
cling building. The machine was
purchased by Gulf County from a
recycling grant and is being oper-
ated by; the City of Port St. Joe,
receiving yard trash and tree
trimmings from the entire south
end of the county, chipping it up,
and selling the debris to be used
as boiler fuel.
Healy reported that 35% of
the south side of Port St. Joe is
now participating in recycling
with the number growing every
day. He said 15% of the citizens
in north Port St. Joe were parti-
ciating.
-... FIRE CHIEF ,-.
With the Fire Department
growing in numbers and needing
training, the Commission agreed
to hire a Fire Chief on a part-time
basis Tuesday ,night. Marty Wil-
liams was employed to act as Fire
Chief, working about 20 hours a
week. Williams would be respon-
sible for arranging training for his
personnel and maintaining the
fire-fighting equipment.
He would also work part-time
with the Police Department. He
has been a Police Auxiliary officer
for about a year and has complet-
ed the peace officer required
training course.
PAVING
The City paving program is
winding down with the Commis-
sion working in projects to use up
the money available in needed ar-
eas.
In addition to juggling pro-
jects to come in the budget, the
City is planning on spending
some of its own money on three
different projects which Mayor
Frank Pate said are "Needed very
bad."
The Mayor suggested Tues-
day night that the City consider
paving the alleys on both sides of
Reid Avenue. 'They are in bad
need of repair and take a good
deal of truck traffic off the main
streets." Pate also suggested the
four tennis courts in the City be
re-surfaced {behind the bank,
Eighth Street courts, and Wash-
ington recreation center). He also
recommended that the one block
of McClellan Avenue from 16th
Street to 17th Street be resur-
faced.
The Commission agreed the
projects were needed and agreed

FSPCA Prepares Strategy With Written 'Position Papers"


The Florida Seafood Producers and Consumers Association
met Monday evening to prepare strategy to oppose plans by the
Marine Fisheries Commission to abolish net fishing in Florida
coastal waters. The prohibition of net fishing, the organization
feels, is. aimed directly at commercial fishermen.
While they were at it Monday, the FSPCA also outlined meth-
ods to oppose a plan by the MFC to close Pretty Bayou and Call-
away Bayou in Bay County, to net fishermen.
Pat McFarland, chairman of the organization, said, "We have
to oppose this plan as a matter of principle, because we can't
stand by and let them do away with our fishing grounds."
He said, "We have asked Major Bob Douglas for input on this
subject, since it appears as if the residents in the area are trying
to keep us out. Major Douglas said there have been 190 com-
plaints in the past 14 months in the three counties served by his
office of the Florida Marine Patrol. Only 52 of them have been of
*' a nature to even warrant investigation and only three involved
violations of the law. This tells us that the commercial fishermen


in this vicinity were not breaking any laws in the performance of
their activities."
The meeting is to be held Wednesday of next week, conduct-
ed by the Marine Fisheries Commission. It will be in the Panama
City Commission Room at Number 9 Harrison Avenue. The pro-
ceedings begin at 6:00 p.m. CST.
RESPONSIBILITIES OF STEWARDSHIP
The FSPCA also adopted a letter of position at their Monday
night meeting. The position charges the Marine Fisheries Com-
mission to be good and fair stewards of the fisheries resource.
With Graham Knox as the author of the position paper, the
document takes a positive step toward receiving fair and equita-
ble treatment, along with sports fishermen. In short, it says that
if a rule is applied to the commercial fishermen to protect the re-
source, the sports fishermen should be charged with protection
also.
The position paper says, "A management policy based solely


on the conservation of the resource, a policy that deliberately ig-
nores the lives of those dependent upon the resource, avoids the
responsibilities of stewardship.
"Stewardship is obligated to serve the needs of all," the paper
declares. "It is an irresponsible act that jeopardizes what little
progress has been made through mediation and negotiation to-
ward a definition of stewardship acceptable to all those with ac-
cess to the resource," the document continues.
The FSPCA adopts the position that any denial of access to
the resource by commercial or sports fishermen should be on
"the basis of scientific fact."
The FSPCA further "proposes the MFC recognize that a ban
on nets in the state waters of Florida is not management, but an
abrogation of the responsibilities of stewardship."
McFarland pointed out that the document would demand fair
and equitable treatment from the Marine Fisheries Commission
"and quit treating us as if we had no right to oppose this move-
ment of theirs."

Tip Away!

The County government is taking another necessary step to-
ward making solid waste disposal a user supported service. User
fees, in the form of tipping fees, should have been in effect a long
time ago and the waste disposal problem wouldn't have been
such a shock to our people to create a reasonable program.
Other places already have tipping fees in place and the peo-
ple are over the initial shock of changing the way of doing things
all at once. But we still have a long way to go and we're going to
be shocked several more times before the County gets down to
what'it has to do.
First, we are going to make subscription to some sort of dis-
posal service, mantory. That is, we're going to have to bite the
bullet and require our people to subscribe to a garbage collection
service and be required to dispose of trash in an acceptable
manner. The only alternative is for people to dump their trash in
the woods. This is the last thing the Commission wants to hap-
pen. It is also the thing the State of Florida is most against.
Dumping in the woods is a No, No.
The State of Florida is demanding the proper., disposal of solid
waste in a manner which will be the least damaging to our envi-
ronment and the least offensive to our people. That suggests
proper controls over the disposal. That again suggests that peo-
ple are going to have to comply with proper disposal methods.
This means that people are going to have to adhere to these
methods if they are to be effective.
Dumping in the woods is the cheapest and most convenient
thing to do now. The landfills cannot accept trash unless an at-
tendant is present. A caretaker is present Monday through Sat-
urday, from 9:00 to 5:00 p.m. The State mandates that this be
the case. If a person needs to dump trash after 5:00 p.m., he is
going to take to the woods.
Tipping fees are a major departure from the former way of
doing things. It isn't for John Q. Citizen yet, because the Com-
mission figures that if he is charged to dump his trash he has
another excuse to take to the woods. It's a shame that people
have to be so messy with their trash, but it's a fact.
Industry and commercial tipping fees are a start in the right
direction, but the County cannot discriminate this way for very
long before it has to make some adjustments.
The only way to discourage people from dumping in the
woods is to make it mandatory that he use landfills and that he
be assessed a certain amount of money each year for that ser-
vice. The thinking is that if he has to pay for the service, any-
how, he had just as well use it.
This is the only way our County can remain clean.



Bandit

Old Moammar Gadhafi is showing himself again. From decid-
ing to turn the suspected airplane saboteurs over to the United
;States to be tried; to changing his mind the very next day; to al-
lowing his people to trash the Venezuelan and Russian embas-
Isies; to thumbing his nose at the UN.
It appears as if Moammar is jealous of the attention given to
Sadam Hussein and Iraq, recently. Now he wants to be the num-
ber one villain in the Middle East again.
Gadhafi held that position all alone for so long, he probably
thinks he has squatters' rights on it.
Of course he enjoys his role as a troublemaker for the world.
He isn't going to jeopardize that role by bowing to some world
court or the UN. He can continue to practice his world terrorism
as he has done in the past with no danger to his nation of Libya.
If he fails to publicly acknowledge that he is responsible for the
actions of the terrorists, or his nation is bankrolling them with
his share of the petro-dollars then he can continue to spread
fear among travellers with impunity.
It is a shame the Arab world looks up to Moammar with
fawning eyes and gives credibility to his criminal actions. Con-
sidering him a hero is the same as giving he and his actions the
Arab stamp of approval. And if the Arab nation approves of such
clandestine activities they deserve reciprocation.
A person has to be pretty sadistic to plan opportunities to kill
innocent people, including children, indiscriminately. Of course,
nobody has suggested that Moammar should receive the Nobel
Peace Prize for brotherly love yet!
It takes a special person to blow an airliner out of the sky for
no special reason. In our opinion, that "special" person doesn't
deserve the humane considerations the United States and the
world, gives Gadhafi and company.

I Hunker Down with Kes .

Somebody has got to tell
him... I figure I'm the one. I've
been through it and since no one
told me, I had to do it the hard
way. What a process! Maybe,
just maybe I can help the old boy
out..... Alan Balsam, last week,
married one of the Cotham girls.
Now folks, the weddings are sim-
ply divine it's that adjustment
period afterwards that near 'bout
gets you. What's that, Alan? You
don't "do adjustments." Ha, ha,
haha,a, ha.............
Don't Say Nothing Bad
About Our Baby There are lots
of Cotham girls, there is only one
brother. Alan, the first rule in
this family is don't in any way,
ever, say or do any thing that
might cast aspersions toward
Bobby Brown. He, as you will
learn, walks on water. Accept it,


Personal...

and get on with your life. Bobby
will help you here, 'cause he is a
good guy. Shoot, he's the best
one in the family. I never will for-
get, the week after our honey-
moon, we're sitting around the
living room discussing world poli-
tics or something and I just casu-
al like responded to a remark
that Bobby made, 'Well, I'm not
sure I agree with yo-"
Mild mannered Cathy sprang
off the sofa, "Now wait just a min-
utel You can't speak to Bobby like
that! He's right! You should plug
in a brain cell or two before open-
ing that mouth...... When I think
of that Naval doctor I could have
married-"--
I didn't catch the rest of it. I
was trying to beat Jo Blair off of
me. She was going for the eyes.
And Gay, that little one, was
sticking an ice pick in my neck.
Alan, just agree with Bobby
Brown. Agree with everything the
girls say about him. You ought to
wake up each morning saying,
"Jo Blair, I'm not exactly sure
what Bobby Brown is thinking
about this morning BUT I
AGREE WITH HIM."


And From the Heart


That, son, will get you off to a
good start.
Forsaking Not The Assem-
bling Of Ourselves Together -
Did you wonder why they all
came to the wedding? It wasn't
just to check out the groom. And
it wasn't because Memphis is
kind'a centrally located. That
family likes to meet. You don't
have to "build it" for them to
come. Just let'em know when and
where. Thanksgiving, Christmas,
Easter, Labor Day, piano recitals,
-hog killing, second Tuesday in
March, listen, it don't matter,
they'll come. Distance is no prob-
lem when the call goes out. My
suggestion is to find a job as
close to as many of them as you
can. 'Cause, Alan, you'll have to
be there. You can't miss a called
meeting for any reasonI Do ,you
think I wanted to be at your wed-
ding? It's one of the rules.
What's that? What do they do
at the meetings? Talk. Mostly,
they talk.
Above The Fruited Plain -
And eat. They eat a lot. You'll
have to call the local super mar-
kets before we all come. They'll


put on special trucks and bring it
by car loads right out to the
house. The local grocers down
here are now offering rebates to
entice me to have more of the get
together in Northwest Florida.
Those girls will slurp down
breakfast, then sit at the table for
three hours talking. They finally
stir it's to rinse off their plates
so they can eat lunch. They hurry
through lunch so .they can sit at
the table and talk some more.
I don't have to describe the
incredible amounts of food they
can consume. You've been mar-
ried to Jo Blair for a week. Listen,
after that, won't no one at the
"meetings" shock you with the
amount they can eat.

Another Day Added to Our Tax Debt... As If We Needed It!


TAX DAY HAS come and
gone but tax-free day is still to
come. Tax-free day is that day
when we finally start working for
money to put in our own pocket.
We have worked for one
month longer than a full quarter
of a year. We have worked for a
third of a year to pay taxes.
Somebody figured recently that
Americans pay about one quarter
of their earnings into taxes. This
date-April 28-is well publicized
as the day we finally start work-
ing for our own benefit.
The notice I read said this
year it is taking one day longer to
pay the tax bill than it took last
year. I don't know if that means it
is taking more taxes to run the
country, or there are fewer of us
working so it takes us longer to
pay the taxes.
At the same time we are be-
ing notified that the first tax-free
day is coming on April 28, we are
notified that the average Florida
wage earner had his buying pow-


Etaoin Shrdlu


by Wesley Ramsey


er erode for the second year in a
row.
I LIKE TO read statistics and
percentages. While the report
said it now takes 118 days to pay
our tax bill, it would take 119
days if the Governor's $1.4 billion
in taxes were added to the total.
It said things like, it would
cost the average family the same
as one large pizza a month. My
family doesn't eat a large size piz-
za every month, in the first place.
In the second place, there is
something wrong with the arith-
metic here. The report said it
would cost us an additional day's


work to pay the Governor's new
tax bill. With all humbleness and
honesty, I must confess that I
make more than enough to pur-
chase a large pizza in a day's
time.
I have two DCT students who
work here part-time, and they get.
paid more than enough to pur-
chase a large pizza each day.
So, what is wrong with these
figures? They don't add up!
After paying taxes and ad-
justing for inflation, the average
Florida household's buying power
is expected to drop 1.6 percent in
1992, after a healthy drop in


1991. Now, if my figures are add-
ing up right, Governor Chiles
wants the people of Florida to pay
more taxes with less money. Sac-
rifice so a few state frills can be
perpetuated. Strain our limited
income and do without more, so a
few state employees can have
their pay raised and live an easier
life.
PART OF THESE statistics
say we could add an extra work-
day to our schedule, in order to
pay these extra taxes we are to be
blessed with.
I can see more and more sup-
port swelling among the grass-
roots of America for an eight day
week.
I have long supported such
an arrangement, so I could have
a day off. And, people need that
extra day to make ends meet, as
well as maybe take a day off now
and again.
Maybe, with an eight day
week some of us may get a


chance to read the Sunday paper,
or a book, or take a walk, or
something. The shellcrackers are
bedding and I just might get to be
there and see it happen if I had
an eight day week at my disposal.
I never get to take anything
resembling a week or two of vaca-
tion each year-except twice in
40 years-and the extra time may
mean that I get to take a full
week of vacation with each day
touching the other.
I can see where an eight day
week would be sheer luxury.
There would be time to work in
my shed at least a full day a
week. I like to get in there and
work up a-storm making sawdust
out of boards. Not much con-
structive comes out of that shed,
but I have a ball with what does
come out.
THIS ARTICLE I read about
taxes, says this extra day a week
is already spent even before I get
it! Isn't that the way with taxes?


We spend them before we get
them; hence the national debt.
I'm just glad for the special
days in the year-257 of them-
when I get to work for money I
can keep. At least, I can keep that
part the grocer doesn't get, or the
utility people, or the clothing
store, or the service station, or
the automobile people, or the nu-
merous other merchants and ser-
vices I help support.
And, of course, don't forget
my wife. She keeps half the deal-
ers in plants and shrubs in
Northwest Florida in business. I
just get what is left over and
make do with what I have.
If it wasn't for taxes, grocer-
ies, clothing, plants, etc., I might
just be able to pay more taxes, or
extend my tax-paying days to
119. Who knows, I might just be
able to go to 120!
But working that extra day
just won't get me anywhere. I
wouldn't know what to do with
the extra money!

Awareness
Cancer awareness is impor-
tant for people of all ages, but
senior citizens are at greater risk.
Of the more than one million peo-
ple who will be diagnosed with
cancer this year, half will be over
the age of 55. The types of cancer
which are the most prevalent in
seniors skin, breast, uterine,
lung, prostate and colorectal -
may be prevented by changes in
lifestyle, or cured if detected early
and treated promptly.

spring fund drive. Already over 35
businesses, organizations and in-
dividuals have made monetary
donations for Gulf County Schol-
arships. The goal of raising
$5,000 has already been met this
year. The duPont Foundation will
match the $5,000 raised and will
add that to their $10,000 base
contribution that they make to
Gulf County Scholarships yearly.
So, a total of $20,000 is available
to be given to local Gulf County
1992 seniors that plan to further
their education. The funds are
distributed, based on a points
system. Gulf County students
can start to achieve points in the


seventh grade.
Students in both Port St. Joe
and Wewahitchka have been in-
volved in raising funds for schol-
arships this year. The Port St. Joe
High School Key Club, Keyettes
and faculty held two very suc-
cessful fund raising events. Betty
Holloway spearheaded fund rais-
ing efforts in Wewahltchka in
conjunction with "Make A Diff r-

over $1,000 to promote higher ed-
ucation.

OTHER BUSINESS
In other business matters,
the commission:
-Extended the new paving
on Woodward Avenue from 13th
to 16th Street.
-Adopted summer sewer
rates. The rates average the sew-
age charges and applies the fig-
ure in the summer rates to allow
for water usage without paying
the sewer fees.
-Heard complaints of a used
car lot on- Reid Avenue. The


Board learned the street is zoned
for the business, but the small
building moved onto the lot
would have to be. removed be-
cause it didn't meet the code.
-Agreed to make a .decision
on whether or not to accept a
County offer to do its building in-
spection. The County Building Of-
ficer said the City would need to
adopt the County rates, which
are suggested by the Southern
Standard Building Code. The
City's rates are presently slightly
lower in some instances.

SGrandparents Now
Raising More and

More Young Children
S ,By
-,- -- t Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

For various reasons there seems to be more grandparents left
raising young children now than in years past. Some do this with
misgivings and only because they know the children have to be
cared for and they .see no alternative. Others seize the opportunity
as perhaps a chance to change things they know went wrong the
first time around. Whatever the reason, grandparents were never
intended to have the complete 24-hour care of young children. That
job really belongs to the parent age groups 20-40 years old.
This is not to say grandparents can not do a good job. Many do
marvelous jobs and in situations I would not believe they could
overcome, but I would like to make a few points they might find
helpful.
1. Types and times of medical care have changed over the
years. Be sure you know when the child- needs to see the doctor and
have a doctor you can call for advice and consultation.
2. Read development information for the age of the child in your
care. If you understand what is supposed to happen with an 18-
month-old, you will not be upset when it does.
3. Give the child love and discipline. Just because his parents
do not function as parents and you feel sad he is not being parent-
ed is no reason to overindulge him. Overindulgence ("spoiling") will
make him a miserable child and make it so the rest of the world
reacts to him adversely. He will not be able to make friends and will
do poorly at school.
4. Be aware your energy level is not what it used to be. Children
need vigorous play. You might need to recruit a young cousin, a
neighbor or a friend to play with the child on a regular basis. Be-
cause you lack the bouncy energy you had at 25 or 30, is no reason
to use the TV as a babysitter or food as a pacifier. If this happens
inactivity and obesity will become a way of life for the child and will
persist long after you are gone.
5. Grandparents often keep candy' around as a treat. Candy
should really be replaced with fresh or dried fruits, unbuttered pop-
corn (in older children), celery sticks, carrot sticks, etc. In other
words, "healthy snacks."
6. Being older, grandparents often have more medicines and
more potent medications around than younger parents. Disastrous
accidents can occur when a toddler gets into medication intended
for an older person.
7. Older is not all negative. Positive points include experience,
patience, understanding, and acceptance. Work hard in the areas
you know you excel and get help when you know you need it.

OBITUARIES~









THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE. FL THURSDAY, APRIL 23.1992 PAGE 7A


By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
Most garden hobbyists are
aware that good plant growth re-
quires a balanced combination of
essential nutrients. Since Florida
soils often lack enough of these
elements, we add fertilizers,
which usually take care of the
major plant food needs. But, if
minor elements are missing from
the mix, we may still face prob-
lems, such as those caused by
lack of zinc and copper.
Zinc and copper deficiencies
can result in poor landscape or-
ilamental growth. My information
on these nutrients was provided
by Extension Urban Horticulture
Specialist Dr. Robert Black, of the
University of Florida's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences.
Zinc deficiency may occur in
both acid and alkaline soils. In
acid soils, it may be caused by
heavy cropping, too much acid-
residue fertilizer, and sometimes
leaching. In alkaline soils, zinc
becomes fixed in a chemical form
that's unavailable to plants.
As with many other deficien-
cies, a lack of zinc first shows up
* as interveinal chlorosis of the
leaves. If zinc deficiency becomes
severe, new leaves will be much
smaller, and they'll take on a
crinkled or wavy appearance.
To correct this problem, ap-
ply zinc sulfate either directly to
the soil, or in a foliar spray. Try
soil application first. It's easier,
and it lasts longer. For small
shrubs, one or two ounces may
be enough. For larger trees, a half
to a whole pound may be needed.
Since zinc moves through the soil
very slowly, it's best to plow it in,
rather than simply broadcasting
it over the surface. Zinc sulfate


should be applied in the early
spring.
Copper deficiency also occurs
in both acid and alkaline soils.
Organic soils, and light, sandy,
acid soils tend to be naturally low
in copper. In alkaline soils, high
in phosphorus, copper usually is
not available to plants.
A copper deficiency causes
new leaves to be considerably
smaller than normal. And, if un-
treated, entire plants may become
dwarfed. In some cases, chlorosis
of the leaves occurs. Leaf tips
may looked burned. And, the
leaves sometimes become thick,
leathery, and rough. Premature
leaf drop also is a common symp-
tom.
Unfortunately, correcting a
copper deficiency is not a simple
process. Copper is necessary for
plant growth. However, too much
in the soil is harmful. An excess
of copper injures roots and slows
down growth. So, you must be
very careful to use no more than
the recommended amounts of
copper.
Copper may be applied direct-
ly to the soil, in the form of cop-
per sulfate. Or, it may be applied
to plant leaves, as.a foliar spray.
Such a spray has several advan-
tages it's quick and effective,
and serves as a good fungicide.
However,, soil application is still
the best method, because it's eas-
ier and longer lasting.
Since copper tends to collect
in topsoil, it should be thoroughly
mixed with water before it's ap-
plied to the surface of the ground.
Or, it should be plowed under im-
mediately after application. Gen-
erally, a half pound of 25 percent
copper sulfate will correct a defi-
ciency in a 10 x 10 foot area. Fer-

Heritage Fair Saturday In


Historic Apalachicola


Historic Apalachicola, located
in Franklin County, at the mouth
of the mighty Apalachicola River
is completing plans for an Old
Time Heritage Craft and Food
Fair.
The event, sponsored by the
Apalachicola Bay Chamber of
Commerce, the Downtown Im-
provement Association, and the
Apalachicola Peddler's Mall, will
take place on Saturday, April 25,
in the heart of the downtown his-
toric shopping district.
An old fashioned celebration


of Spring, the event coincides
with the Gold Cup Antique Car
Race sponsored by the Miracle
Strip Region AntiqueAutomobile
Clubs of America. Nearly 30 an-
tique and classic cars will travel
from Panama City to Apalachico-
la, where they will arrive and be
on display at the historic Gibson
Inn, a completely restored turn of
the century inn.
The downtown merchants
have invited other arts and craft-
ers to set up on the city sidewalks
to display and sell their wares.
In a town noted for its hospi-
tality and wonderful arts and fine
crafts, the only thing needed to
complete a perfect day is some of
the mouth-watering seafood and


world famous Apalachicola oys-
ters, all of which may be found in
the many local restaurants as
well as at the sidewalk booths
staffed by the finest local cooks.
During the Old Time Heritage
Craft and Food. Fair there will be
no fee or charge to display and
sell. It is a Free Market Day.

Some day, a cure will be found for Arthritis, a disease
which so far has evaded the efforts of thousands of research

Stop trying every new pain reliever advertised by the
medicine men who apparently promise much in their ads
and television commercials. Analyze what they say and you
can see they definitely offer you little help. Place yourself in
your physician's care. Visit him at the regular intervals he -
suggests. Let him prescribe the medicines he thinks will do
S you the most good. He is an expert.

PORT ST. JOE 7
The Port St. Joe Sharks were
trailing the Blountstown Tigers by
six runs at the end of the fifth in-
ning, Tuesday afternoon at the
District 2 2-A tournament opener
in Wakulla. Their season's record
indicated they were beaten as
they had no record of coming
from behind; especially from so
far behind.
It was a case of nearly going
from worst to first.
The Tigers had hammered
out a solid 8-2 lead by the end of
the fifth inning and pitcher Jon
Elliott tiring. But along with the
sixth inning came the resurrec-
tion of the Shark bats. They
greeted reliever Adam Faurot with
four runs before he could shut
them down.
Bryan Butts led off the in-
ning with a single and advanced
to third on Des Baxter's double.
Faurot walked Davy Young to
load the bases, and walked Adam
Taylor scoring Butts. Elliott's
double down the left field line
cleared the bases ending the scor-
ing-for the Sharks in the sixth.
Elliott started on the mound
for Port St. Joe and gave up sev-
en runs before giving way to re-
liever Eric Ramsey in the fifth. He
allowed one run in the fifth, then
shut the Tigers down for the rest
of the game.
The Tigers had 11 hits for the
game. The Sharks made the most
of their eight hits. Collecting hits
for the Sharks were Elliott with
two doubles. Baxter with a. dou-
ble and a single, Butts with two
singles, and Addison and Ramnsey
each with a single.

The Wewahltchka Gators
scored once in the first inning
and three times in the second, for
enough points to defeat the Port
St. Joe Sharks for the third time
this year.
Mark Lester occupied the
mound for the Gators, giving up
three hits, and striking out eight
for his sixth win of the season.
Jon Elliott started for Port St.
Joe and went five innings, allow-
ing five runs before giving way to
David Liffick. The Gators scored
one more run in the fifth and
sixth inning before Liffick was
lifted in the top of the seventh for
Bryan Butts. The Gators scored
six more runs to put the game
out of reach.
The Sharks, meanwhile,
scored two runs in the third and
one in the fifth.
Denny McGlon led both
teams in hitting with a'double
and a triple and three RBI.


Jon Elliott had a double for
the Sharks.

The hits were scarce. last Fri-
day as Mosley JV managed only
five and the Gator hits-were even
more scarce as the team touched
the Mosley -hurler for only three
safeties.
The Gators got their two:
runs, both unearned, in the
fourth and sixth innings, to tie
the game. But Mosley came back
in their half of the sixth to score
the winning run on a fielder's
choice.
Denny McGlon went the
route for the Gators. The Gators
made three errors, two of which
allowed the winning run to move
into scoring position.

Many boaters who meticu-
lously maintain their fishing
equipment, outboard motor and
boat in tip-top shape for some
reason are inclined to ignore their
boat's battery. But the battery is
as important to the operation of
your rig as any item aboard.
Things you should do:
*Wear eye protection and
rubber gloves when working on or
around batteries.
*Be careful when connecting
or, disconnecting battery charger
cable clamps. Be sure charger is
turned off and unplugged from
power source when making con-
nections.
Poor connection are common
causes of electrical arcs which
could cause an explosion.
*Use a volt meter or hydrome-
ter to check battery charge condi-
tion.
Things you shouldn't do:
*Smoke or bring a flame near
a battery that is being, or has re-
cently been, charged.
*Place your head directly
above a battery when making or
breaking electrical connections.
*Use a metal object to spark
between battery posts to check
for charge condition
*Make or brake live electrical
circuits at the battery terminals;
a spark usually occurs when a
live circuit is opened or made.
To clean your batter, wash
down the battery case with a di-
luted ammonia or baking soda
solution to neutralize any acid,
then flush with fresh water. Keep
the fill/vent caps tight so the
neutralizing solution doesn't get

into the battery cells.
The electrolyte level should
be checked every 30 days. The
level should be maintained be-
tween the top of the plates and
the bottoms of the fill/vent cap
opening by adding distilled water.
Don't overfill, and remember
that batteries contain sulphuric
acid which can cause severe
burns.

CHANGES FOR

THE BETTER


Over the past fifty years
Dentistry has experienced major
improvements in both the quality
of care'and the comfort in which
it is delivered. The newest im-
provements involve regulations
concerning infection control. Our
office has always followed strict
procedures devised by the
American Dental Association
(ADA) for the elimination of
cross-contamination. (We have
always heat sterilized all of our
instruments, used disposables
whenever possible, etc.) But,
starting May 1st, our patients
will notice further improvements
in this department.
Early in 1992 the Center of
Disease Control (CDC) and Oc-
.cupational Safety and Health
Association (OSHA), made a list
of recommendations to the Den-


tal Profession to eliminate
cross-contamination in the Den-
tal Office. In May of this year,
many of these recommenda-
tions will be passed into law.
Our office has decided to ag-
gressively conform not only to
recommendations passed into
law, but to ALL the recommen-
dations made by CDC and
OSHA. We are sure that these
CDC recommendations will be
viewed as improvements in our
office, and hope our patients will
appreciate our continuing efforts
to bring the highest quality of
Dental Care to our area.

Prepared as a public ser-
vice to promote better dental
health. From the office of:

Spanish Explorers Left Their Name Influence at St. Joseph


This is the third in a series of articles on the
Harvest of History.
Names will be familiar to recognize the historical
events concerning the latest acquired parks. Beacon
Hill Park was Fort Crevecoeur; Cape Road Park, Sali-
nas was named for Don Gregorlo de Salinas Verona;
White City Park named Primo de Rivera for Don Jose
Primo de Rivera.

Don Jose Primo de Rivera remained in command
in San Marcos during the two subsequent French
seizures of Pansacola. As he says himself, he occu-
pied himself not only in fortifying San Marcos and
arranging for new Indian settlements but also in or-
ganizing the Provinces for the expedition that was in-
tended against Mobile. After the death of Don Grego-.
rio in 1720, in November or December of that year.
Don Jose was named as Governor of the Bay and
Presidio of San Joseph de Pansacola by the Viceroy,
the Marques de Valero upon the recommendation of
Governor Benavides of Florida and took over from
Don Alonso de Salinas who remained as Sergeant
Major or Lieutenant Governor.
During this'period, Don Jose kept a watchful eye
on the French. He sent his brother, Captain Pedro
Primo de Rivera and Don Alonso to reconnoitre Mo-
bile, where they arrived on October the 5th, 1721.
The Sergeant Major in particular, as an old hand
who had served in Flanders, Mexico, Texas, Pensaco-
la and Manila, was to sagaciously survey all the for-
tifications and their troops and arrangements and
their preparations for war. The French were well
aware of this effort and saw through their subter-
fuge, that they were ill and seeking treatment. He
also continued the work that he had started in San
* Marcos, that of resettling the area with Indian farm-

French ship Subtile and two launches, attempted to
enter St. Joseph's Bay in search of the French
freighter Elizabeth, which had been seized by a
Swiss company commanded by a Monsieur Brand.
They found there in the Bay the Hollandesa, a frigate
of 26 guns under the command of Don Juan Alberto
de Irsola. The frigate and the guns of the fort op-.
posed the entrance of the French vessel and they
were forced to protect themselves from Don Jose's
guns. That night the two launches were almost lost
near the Rio San Andres and the Subtile was. nearly
shipwrecked and was badly damaged. The next day
they were permitted to enter St. Joseph's Bay be-
cause of the storm and Don Jose explained that he
had only kept them out for fear their presence would
be used by his enemies and especially Governor Ben-
avides, to condemn him.
Don Jose left his wife and children in San Jo-
seph and voyaged to Vera Cruz in September or Oc-
tober of 1722, and was imprisoned in the Castillo of
San Juan de Ulua at Vera Cruz, Mexico for five
months. He sent the Viceroy repeated letters cursing
him and demanding to know the charges against
him. Finally, the Marques de Casafuerte took office
as Viceroy and ordered his removal from Vera Cruz
to the quarters of the Royal Palace in Mexico City at
his own expense. There he was informed that Don
Antonio de Benavides had brought charges against
him of engaging in illegal commerce with the French.
He wrote the King concerning this on May 24th,
1723 and asked to be relieved from his duty in re-
turning to his former post to serve under Governor
Benavides. The King denied him permission to do
this and ordered him to return to San Augustin.
On the 16th of October of 1723, he wrote again
to the King, informing him that he had been exoner-
ated of the charges against him and.again protestid-
his return to serve under Governor Benavides. How-
ever, he returned to San Augustin and apparently
made peace with Governor Benavides who employed
him in at least one important mission later on, the
negotiation with the English concerning their, ehn
croachments on the Altamaha River in present day
Southeast Georgia. On August 26th of 1725, he as
Commandant of San Augustin along with the Royal
Accountant, Don Francisco Menendez Marquez, was
sent by Governor Benavides to negotiate the demoll-
tion of Fort King George near present day Darien;
Georgia, and to arrange for the English withdrawal
from that part of the country. On the 12th of Sep-
tember of 1725, they arrived at Charlestown, South
Carolina, and conferred with the English Governor
and the colonial legislature there, which appears to
have born little fruit. He disappears from view short-
ly after that and is presumed to have died.

Zany Olympics
On the afternoon following
the CTBS, the fifth and sixth
graders gave us a welcome respite
froin academic rigors. They, and
t (their teachers, held the zaniest of
competition on the school green.
From egg Loss to running with pie
tins on one's head, the students
kept us amused. We needed a
funny kind of escapade like that.
It does one good, nbw and again.
Stories from Third Grade
"Meeting God"
by Keith Davis
"I would like to meet God be-
cause I would like to see what he
looks like. I would like to sit up
there and have a long talk-with
him. I would like to talk about me,
and my family,",
"Rain"
by Vertis Hysmith
"Rain is water. That's all rain
is. I like rain. It gets you wet. I
can't wait until the first May rain.
I just can't wait because you can
get in that rain, but you can't get
in April rain. It .will make you
sick. Would you like that?"
Kids Say the Cutest Things...
Mrs. Tweeta Gaskin had as-
signed her first graders to write a
story about an animal doing
something, you know like taking
on human characteristics. Well,
they jumped right into the assign-
ment. One of her students, Fred
Kemp, son of Mr. and Mrs. Hous-
ton Kemip, was talking his story
aloud and saying, "The bird was
playing a --- -Teacher, how do
you spell pe-nanna?"
The Unexpected Easter Egg
Surprise
Mrs. Marlene Whitfield and
her sixth grade class had a rather
shocking find at their Easter egg
hunt and cookout. While the stu-
dents were hunting for eggs, they
found a diamond back rattle-
S snake.-.-Needless to,.say,.,they :-teft
...welt" enough. alone ,Mr. Rouse a
'fifth giade teacher.' came to the
rescue, but the uninvited guest
had slithered away.
Pavilion Hosts Easter Parties
The new pavilion at WES has
20 new picnic tables. I guess
Easter parties were the first to try
it out. It was scheduled all
1. through the morning, but as it
M. accommodates up to five classes
at one time, it was well used.
Swap Meet
The 'students in Mrs. Linda
Tremain's third grade classroom
had an interesting unit on eco-
nomics last week. On the last day
r of school before Easter break,: the
n students had a 'swap meet' in
h their room. Never too soon to
learn about scarcity, and oppor-
tunity costs.
In Honor of Secretaries...
This week, April 20-25, is Na-
tional Secretaries Week. We, at
WES, are very fortunate to have
two great secretaries, Mrs. San-
dra Husband and Mrs. Claudice
Baxley. I asked some children in
kindergarten, first, second, and
third grades what a secretary
does and here are their answers:
Dawn Hall, kindergarten:
"They work and help somebody."
Wanda Hall, first: "If custom-
ers come in, they would help
them."
Lindsey Carter, second: "Just
> type papers, that's all."
Sharita Keith, third: "A secre-
tary is supposed to do what Mr.
Kelley says."
Sixth Graders Memories of WES
Soon our sixth graders will be
leaving the elementary school and
going on to junior high. I'll inter-
view a few each week until school
is out to get their memories of
what they will remember.

DON'T BLAME GOD
"LET NO MAN say when he is tempted, I am tempted of
God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth
he any man;
But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his
own lust and enticed.
Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and
sin, when it is finished. bringeth forth death." (James

Happy Campers
Some of our students had a
real camping experience last
week at PRIDE Resorts at Pana-

shoes and skee ball, and even
watched a baseball game between
the Wewa Gators and Vernon at
Commodore Stadium at GCCC.
These happy campers were: Jack-

A Flying Trip to Huntingdon
Tuesday last, Linda Whitfield,
Rhonda Pridgeon, Aimee Prid-
geon, and Mandy Little went to
Huntingdon College in Montgom-
ery, Alabama, to visit Heather
Whitfield, who is a freshman
there. With four hours of travel-
ing time each way, there was'not
much time to visit, but a little
time spent with one's child is
worth the effort. I also had to
help out the Easter Bunny in de-
livering Heather's basket!
SMiss Terri's Engaged
Our guidance counselor got
something besides candy and
eggs for Easter a big rock! She
was sporting a lovely engagement
ring this morning. She and her fi-
ance, Craig Weimorts of Port St.
Joe, have announced their wed-
ding date for July 11. Congratula-
tions to both of them.

Johnny Appleseed
The second grade teachers,
Judi Lister, Sue McDaniel, and
Joyce Quinn, have cranked up
and have started working on their
upcoming play, Johnny Apple-
seed. This musical revue about
the 'number one apple tree plant-
er' will be in mid-May. Every time
you eat a McIntosh or a Golden
Delicious, think about our stu-
dents practicing!
Bunny Biscuits
The second graders in Mrs.
Sue McDaniel's classroom have
been studying about fractions. As
a cute way to reinforce it, they
made bunny biscuits with canned
biscuits. You know, a whole bis-
cuit for the body, 2 halves for the
ears, etc.

SColon Cancer Symptoms Sometimes Ignored


While early detection is the
best protection against colon can-
cer, many people inadvertently
place themselves at increased
risk by ignoring telltale symp-
toms. They attribute such signs
as blood in the stool, diarrhea.
and abdominal pain to common
health problems like hemorrhoids
or indigestion. But colorectal can-
cers mimic many of these minor
ailments, and often results in de-
layed diagnosis, says Greg Boyce,
M.D., a gastroenterologist at Mof-
fit Cancer Center. And ignoring
such warning signs Is unwise,


Boyce adds, because cancer of
the colon or rectum is highly cur-
able when detected early.
More than 147,000 people
will be diagnosed with colon can-
cer in 1992. Most of these cases
may be curable, if the disease is
diagnosed early. A healthy diet
high In fiber and low in fat may
also help to prevent the occur-
rence of the disease.
Certain factors place some
people at higher risk for colorec-
tal cancer. Age is one over 93
percent of the cases occur after
age 50. The disease is also more


prevalent in individuals with a
history of inflammatory bowel dis-
ease or polyps, which are some-
times forerunners to colorectal
cancer. Family history also comes
into play someone who has rel-
atives with inherited colon can-
cers or polyps is at greater risk.
For healthy adults not experi-
encing symptoms, the American
Cancer Society recommends the
following screening guidelines:
*A digital rectal exam every
year after age 40. This procedure
allows a physician to feel a tumor
with his or her finger if one is


present inside the rectum.
*A stool blood test every year
after age 50. This simple at-home
test checks the stool .for blood
which could be a sign of cancer
or other internal disorders.
*A flexible sigmoidoscopy ex-
amination once a year for two
consecutive years, then once eve-
ry three to five years after age 50,
based on each individual's health
and the advice of their physician.
With this procedure, a fiberoptic
tube is used to inspect the rec-
tum and lower colon.

more fiber.
"Americans consume less
than half of the recommended fi-
ber intake," says Kumar. "The
typical American diet contains .10
to 12 grains of fiber a day; the
National Cancer Institute recom-
mends 25 to 30 grams of fiber a
day."
Moffitt Cancer Center sug-
gests these tips. to get more fiber
into your diet:
*Alternate your breakfast
menu; try a high-fiber cereal one
day, and a bran-fruit muffin the
next.
*Instead of a glass of fruit


juice, have a juicy, ripe orange in-
stead. You'll get the true flavor
AND the high fiber.
*Try to work beans and len-
tils into your diet twice a week.
Whether fresh or canned, discard
the water, this may decrease
some of the discomfort beans can
cause.
*Aim for a minimum of two
fruits and two vegetables every
day. An apple for a snack, a car-
rot stick or two with lunch, a
peach for dessert there are
easy ways to do this. Besides the
fiber, you'll be getting rich doses
of vitamins A and C, which also
reduce the risk of certain can-
cers. And because fresh fruits
