... 10-Year Pact for Use



ofComDactor Sigled


Larry Smith and Randy West, of the DOT, sion Tuesday afternoon, at a regular meeting,
make their report to the Gulf County Commis- on ways the DOT is utilizing old tires.


Old Tires Being
Asking for ways to dispose of old tires in
their solid waste stream, the Gulf County have
received a first hand report from the State De-
partment of Transportation on the results of re-
search and experimentation with using the old
tires as road resurfacing medium.
Members of the research department of
DOT, Larry Smith and Randy West gave the-
Commission a slide viewing and narrative re-
port on the old tires being ground up and
mixed with asphalt and used as a road paving
material.
West said the experiments are turning out
very satisfactorily. "As a matter of fact the
ground rubber, mixed with the asphalt reduces
planing on wet roads, making greater safety a
definite factor. We,, have tet m:roadaof the mate-
rial in place in the Star area and in Gainesville,
which have been place for three years with ex-
cellent results."
West reported that a demonstration of the


Used In Paving
new product is scheduled this summer for the
Panama City where a two mile stretch of the
paving will be installed.
"Beginning in 1993 the DOT will be requir-
ing that the ground rubber from old tires be
used in all asphalt applications," West-said.
The ground rubber is added to the asphalt
at a rate of about'20% rubber and 80% asphalt
to form the paving mix. The mix is used in all
grades of asphalt from finished coats to foun-
dation material.
'We'll be looking at about a 10 increase in
paving costs with the expense involved in
transporting the old tires, and grinding them
up ," West said. "However, this extra cost will
be more than offset, in the long run, by the
longer-wearing characteristics of.. he paving
mixture."
Gulf County has been looking for ways to
dispose of their old tires and has turned to
DOT for suggestions.


City Will Be
After several weeks of bar-
aining back and forth, Gulf
county and the City of Port St.
oe have finally hammered out an
agreement for the turn-over of
several County properties for use
y the City.
The City of Port St. Joe had
requested the compactor station
n industrial Road be turned over
them to begin a recycling pro-
.~am for South Gulf County at
e City's expense. The property
as to include a recycling build-
g;recently built adjacent.to the
ompactor, the compactor itself,
nd specialized vehicles to be
sed to transport both recycled
materials and the City's garbage
to the incinerator in Bay County.
|The City purchased the
ountye vehicles at an agreed
price of $27,500 and received a
10-year no-cost lease on the
buildings and facilities. The City
must maintain the installation
and at. any time the County de-
Oides to get back into the garbage
collection business, relinquish
the compactor and buildings
back to the County.
In return, the. City is to be a
collection center for recyclables
for the southern portion of Gulf
County and materials such as
paper and yard debris is to be
trucked from Wewahitchka to go
Ipto the recycling stream. These
tWo items account for about 60%
of Gulf County's solid waste and
is being prepared by the City for
sale to St. Joe Forest Products
Company to produce paper utiliz-
ing reclaimed material and as
boiler fuel.
S.The agreement was unani-
mously approved the Conmmission
Tuesday afternoon on the recom-
mendation of attorneys Bob
Moore for the County and William
J. Rish for the City.


Recycle Center for South Gulf


PRESSURE BUILDER
The County has a contract
with Cumbaa Construction of
Blountstown to expand the facili-
ties at the boat launch site at
White City park. The project is
being paid for by State of Florida
boating fees which will expire on
June 30 of this year if they aren't
spent. The Board feels that Cum-
baa is dragging his feet, since
they don't see any work started
on the site.
The County discussed ways
they could get the project expedit-
ed Tuesday, even to the point of
terminating Cumbaa's contract
and getting another builder to do
the job.
"We don't want to lose this
money," Chairiman Traylor said.
Commissioner Ed Creamer
suggested they give Cumbaa until
Friday to get things moving, or
the Board would replace him
Monday with another contractor
who has stated he would not let
the County lose its state money,
by not finishing the project in
time.
Creamer pointed out that
Cumbaa has had the contract for
over two months and is beyond
his completion date, with nothing
started on site as yet.
OTHER BUSINESS
Other.matters of business to
come before the Commission in-
cluded:
--The Florida Game and Fish
Commission has notified the
County it will re-work the boat
landing on the Apalachicola River
at Gaskin Park at the end of Road
22, in July or August.
--Larry Wells announced a
training exercise for emergency
groups in the county for-later this
month to prepare for the hurri-
cane season.

Drive Started to Inoculate

Dr. Cersosimo Says Health Department Targeting
Youth Age Two Months to Beginning School Age


County Commission Chairman Billy Traylor, County and Major John T. Allgood of Gulf Fo-
Sgt John Whitfield of Gulf Forestry Camp, May- restry Camp, participated in the short apprecia-
or Frank Pate, representing the Cities of Gulf tion ceremony Tuesday at noon.


Cities, County, Say, 'Thanks John!'


, City and County governments in Gulf
County jointly hosted a small appreciation din-
ner Tuesday, at J. Patrick's Restaurant, to
show their appreciation to Gulf Forestry Camp
for the assistance of work crews furnished the
several governmental entities during the past
year.
Major John Allgood and Sgt. John Whit-
field, directors of the camp and its work forces
.of inmates, told the government officials at-
tending, just how much work they receive out
of the Forestry Camp, located on the Doc Whit-
field Road, near Cypress Creek.
Major Allgood said that during the past
year, County governments received a total of
24,000 man hours of labor from the Camp. The
two incorporated cities in the, County, Wewa-
hitchka and Port St. Joe received a total of
9,408 man hours spent on chores such as
clean up of streets, ditching, cleaning ditches,
park maintenance, etc. Gulf County received a
total of 6,208 hours for Incidental work on


parks, Courthouse grounds, etc. Trust Funds
labor, which is spent on special projects
throughout the county, amounted to 7,990
man hours.
In addition to the work furnished the sever-
al government agencies, the Forestry Camp
also expended a total of 21,007 man hours on
forestry proj ects.
SHORT ON MANPOWER
Major Allgood said that at present labor is
short at the Camp. '"We are rated for 293 in-
mates and at present have a total of 97-about
a third of our census capabilities. But this situ-
ation can change in a week's time."
Sgt. John Whitfield also expressed appreci-
ation to the cities and the County for their
cooperation in furnishing trained supervision.
Whitfield also presented the governments with
a change in the way of doing things at the
Work Camp. 'You won't get any less work out
of our inmates, but you will be required to fol-
low a different procedure."


For years the health depart-
ment has been interested in inoc-
ulatihg children, protecting them
from the common childhood dis-
eases. The Gulf County Health
Department has taken on this re-
sponsibility, to protect children
from the ravages of these highly
infectious diseases.
But in more recent years,
parents have failed to bring their
children in for the vaccine they
need and seem lackadaisical
about the whole matter.
Health Department Doctor,
Jim Cersosimo, told The Star re-
cently, that he felt it was because
one hardly ever sees children
with fatal cases of measles,
whooping cough, tetanus, polio,
diphtheria, or rubella anymore.
NEED STILL THERE
"It's still there, though," he
says. "Just because we have held
it at arm's length for many years,
it is still very much alive and
kicking in parts of the world we
* don't live in." The .doctor says
there is a very potential danger in
Florida for some of these diseases
to become of epidemic propor-
tions because of all the immi-
grants coming into the state.
'You have itinerant fruit and
vegetable harvesters from other
countries just a few counties
away. Haitians are coming into
our state from their native land.
Cubans have all but invaded
south Florida," Cersosimo said.
'These countries do not have the
same living conditions we do, and
as a result, the diseases are still
prevalent there."
START KIDS EARLY
Dr. Cersosimo said there is a
regular regimen for inoculating
children, from age two months to
school age. "There is something
they need about every two
months," the Doctor said.
The problem is with persuad-
ing parents to bring their children
in for the vaccine. "There is no
charge, for anyone," the Health
Doctor said. 'This is one of the
reasons the Health Department


Registered Nurse Louise Beard, administers
Phillip Price, son of Mr. and Mrs. Stacey Price, as
child immunization procedure.


was founded, to eradicate child-
hood diseases," the Doctor con-
tinued.
The Health Department im-
munizes children, once they get
into school. 'We have them there
where we can get to them," Dr.
Cersosimo said. 'We inoculate
nearly 100% of all school age chil-
dren. But the pre-school age gives
us a problem. We need to get the
word to them that they need our
services, also."
DON'T DELAY
Dr. Cersosimo urged that
mothers with young children not
delay any longer. Even those of
pre-school age need protection
and once they start mixing with


Polio vaccine to
a part of a total


other children at school, nursery
school, baby sitters, kindergart-
en, etc., they need protection.
'There is no charge for any of
the inoculations. Just come to
the Health Department. There
isn't even a necessity to arrange
an appointment. Just come any
time we're open. Protect your chil-
dren by getting them started on
an immunization program early
in life," Dr. Cersosimo said.
CLINIC HOURS
The Gulf County Health De-
partment immunization clinic is
open Monday through Friday
from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. The
immunization Is performed by a
registered nurse.

That's A Joke! Z

We haven't had a good old belly-laugh in a long time, such as
we had Monday evening of last week. Talk about your Comedy
Hour! Governor Lawton Chiles made like a stand-up comedian
for about 15 minutes Monday. Then Ander Crenshaw came on
and tried to do a better job before he gave up and turned it over
to the lady on the program. She made more sense than either of
the men.
But back to the Governor and his "time to get real" ploy.
If Governor Chiles would actually "get real" with the people of
Florida, he might get some action. Who knows, he might even
get his tax increase he covets so much.
But to.tell the people of Florida that hiking taxes by $2.5 bil-
lion and putting them on "big business" rather than the consu- I'vy head
mer is somehow going to save the consumer from paying so have poad
many taxes ... Come on Gov! Do you really believe that stuff? my nose
Every business we ever heard of arranges the price of their much t
product or service to cover their expenses and leave them a mod- about we
est profit. Most business leave themselves a very modest profit. away jus
They would do better to invest their money and not worry about thousand
"doing business." "those s
Now, when these so-called big business and service compa- worst." S
nies begin adding up their expenses to cover their costs, wonder
what they are going to do with those $2.4 billion in taxes?
They're going to tack therh' on the price of their product, that's
what. And, so who is going to pay that extra $2.5 billion you're
:asking for? The average working stiff, that's who.
Come on Governor, take some of your own advice, Get real!
Be candid with the people and maybe they'll trust you to come
up with a solution for their financial problems. ,
You .see, they know there are holes in what you say big
enough to drive a Mack truck through. You sound like a used
car salesman. And who believes one of those when he claims a
car Is a cream-puff, driven only by a little old lady to church and
back. The odometer Is broken and that's why it shows 158,000
miles!
Tell us the truth, Governor. The law-makers in Tallahassee
may not have better sense than to believe you, but John Q. Pub-
lic, who has to figure out how to make a smaller pay-check
stretch farther, does. |


Rubber Checks Bounce Congressmen

Nothing seems to have had the impact on Washington in
modem times like the revelation of members of Congress writing
bad checks drawn on their private bank.
Not Watergate, not Iran-gate, not Teapot Dome not vicuna
coats, not Wilbur Mills and his "secretary" nor the transporta-
tion of FDR's dog, "Fala".
People are incensed that while they are forced to pay up to
$25.00 to write a bad check, the members of Congress pay noth-
ing. Add to that the recent salary increase Congress voted itself.
Mr. Voter reasons, "If I am forced to get by on my piddling salary
and get penalized when I write a bad check, why can't my Con-
gressman squeeze by on better than a hundred thou a year?"
,And it's a legitimate question; especially of a person charged
with "the responsibility of 'managing billions of dollars in 'tax
'money. 'Come to think of it, that "overdraw" mentality may be
why our national debt is so huge, and growing every day.
Already the chickens are coming home to roost at the
polls. Arkansas Democrat Bill Alexander, a 12-term member of
the House-that's 24 years on the job-was soundly defeated for
those 487 "slips of memory". Carroll Hubbard of Kentucky, an
18-year veteran, has been dumped by the voters. His wife, Carol,
running for another Kentucky seat, was also defeated.
Voters are turning Congressmen out in droves and others are
seeing the handwriting on the wall and deciding not to seek re-
election.
Action such as running up a $2 trillion national debt
couldn't get them defeated. Not showing up for sessions of the
House couldn't get them defeated. Taking advantage of their po-
sition in Congress, to their own enrichment, couldn't get them
defeated. Telling their constituents lies and making promises
they didn't intend to keep couldn't get them defeated. Nor could "
any of the unsavory stories told about Congressmen, and often
proven.


But, bounce a couple of $10.00 checks, even if it costs the
U.S. treasury nothing, is bouncing Congressmen out on their
ear. The problems of the House Bank and its overdrafts may be
the best thing that has happened to the United States of Ameri-
ca since the, invention of frozen pizza.

ACCORDING TO THE calen-
' dar, the first day of summer is
still nine' days hence. But the old a(

It's time fori home-made ice
cream, watermelon, popcorn .
You name it, it's that time of the
year. I've been picking wild plums
off the plum tree in my back
yard. I have to hustle and need to
be standing right beside the tree
when one of the plump plums
gets ripe, however, or the birds
will beat me to them.
They're like a little boy in a,
watermelon patch. The boy will
crack open the watermelon and
dig in, tearing out a handful of'
luscious, ripe, juicy heart of the
melon. The birds will hit the
plums and just peck a hole in the
side, leaving it to attack another
plum. They never finish one they
start to eat on.
My tomatoes are bearing and
some nearing the ripe stage. The

squash on them and the egg

I'M GOING TO enjoy my to-
matoes even more than usual
this year. This year I planted
them from seed, in individual
cups, and grew my own plants.
Some of those tomato seeds cost
me a nickel each. I re-planted
them at the size of about six inch-
es tall and felt they would be the
most healthy tomatoes around.
But, the second day they
were in the ground, nothing could
have looked more unhealthy and
still be alive. I planted them the

A good friend of mine told me
I could see a doctor, take some

he said I could do nothing and It
would last about two weeks.
I'll tell you how bad I was last

were down in ,a wooden barrel. I

the insensitive, squirrelly folks at
the office cut that Beltone adver-

It on my desk. Very funny!
My 'wife gave me this thing.
Of course she was only sick for
two days. She would apologize af-
ter she coughed and she never
complained. I think she started to
lay down one afternoon but the
boys wanted supper and then she
had to iron a shirt for Josh and it
was her night to feed the dog and
she had to fix us some ice cream
with that chocolate syrup.......
She was" lucky, she just had a
real mild case of what I've got.
First 'thing, right off on my
weekly call to mother, 'You don't
sound good son, are you sick?"
"No, Mom, I'm fine.",
'You have a cold, don't you?"


'Well, a little one-"
"Are you taking anything for
It?"
"Well-"
"I know you're not or you'd
sound better."
"I'm going to get something-"
"Do I need to come down
there?"
No, ma'am, it's just a-"
"Do you have some honey
and lemon and castor oil?"
My mother could "fix" a cold.
And boy howdy, she liked that
castor oil. She near 'bout always
added that to any remedy she
was cooking up.. If you got real
sick, she'd give it to you straight
I can remember it taking three of
us to hold my little brother down
while "he took his medicine."
Folks, I'll tell you how strong that
castor oil stuff was I've had
colds to up and leave my body
while mother was reaching up to
that shelf above the sink.
I'd be laying in bed on Sun-
day morning, dying. "Mom, it's
my stomach, I don't believe I can
make it to church today."
She'd lay a hand on my fore-
head, "Son, I don't know if you
need the honey and vinegar or
the orange juice and castor oil. A
little of both probably wouldn't
hurt ......"
I leaped out of bed. "Mom, I
may not need anything, I think
it's going away." I got everybody's
Bible out and helped David tie his
shoes, it was a miracle!
'Course, mother was pretty
modem with her medicine. La-
Renda Bradfield would get a hang
nail and she'd come to school
with that mustard poultice tied
around her neck. Whew, that
thing would clear out my sinuses
and I sat four rows over from her.
I don't know what all Mrs. Brad-
field put in that little bag but thir-
ty-five years later I can still smell
the garlic and the cloves and the
sulfur.......
During the cold and flu sea-
son, we'd drink a lot of sassafras
tea; mom said it helped purify the
blood. And we would sometimes
get us some store bought medi-
cine. In the early days, we'd buy a
bottle of E.W. Grove's wonderful
Hadacol. That Hadacol was amaz-
ing stuff. If you had the chills, it
would warm you up. If you had a
fever, it would cool you down. If
you were constipated, it would
open you up. If you were too
open, it would clog your system.
As patent medicine goes, it was
the top of the line. Of course,
when the Pure Food and Drug
Administration passed that law
that you had to put on the label
what was inside the bottle, Mr.
E.W. Grove was out of business.
S-S-S kind'a took Hadacol's
place. That 3-S Tonic stuff
claimed to do all Hadacol could
do and it would cure snake bite,
too. We'd rub a little on our arms
before going out into the woods
and it would kill a flying mosqui-
to at thirty paces. 'Yes yes yes,
use S-S-S."
Black Draught was another
store bought remedy we'd use
from time to time. That real skin-
ny, country music singer used to

gery, just to be sure they got
planted, so they are seven weeks
old tomorrow.
You ought to see them now.
The plants strike me at about the
shoulder and they are all loaded
with tomatoes. I can hardly wait
for the taste of good, fresh, .firm,
ripe, home-grown tomatoes, i
That's one of the good things
about summer.
ANOTHER GOOD THING to
come from summer is watermel-
ons. A cool juicy, red, ripe water--
melon, eaten out in the back yard
on the picnic table late in the eve-


ning is the way to lively
The Jaybirds have; taken to
competing with the squirrels for
their food in the squirrel feeder
every day, but they'll probably
not be around to eat watermelon
seeds When I spit them ion the
ground.
Bluejays are competitive
birds when it comes to something
to eat. But they won't land near it
when I'm standing around. I've
been buzzed a time or two, how-
ever. The mockingbirds haven't
invaded in force, yet, but I'm
looking for them. any day now.
THE YARD IS LOOKING
pretty good now, what with a
$100 water bill my wife spent be-
fore I knew what she was doing.
That's in addition to the
pump which has been working
full force all this time.
Dave and Betty, Otto May
were out walking the other day
and Betty Otto took a dig at Dave,
as they passed our place, when


she said. "Don't the Ramsey's
yard look nice! Ours could look
that good if you could get up off
your couch long enough to do a
little work around the house."
Now, that was kind of harsh
on old Dave, what-with his trick
back, which will throw itself out
most. anytime some work
presents itself.
Dave defended himself the
best way he knew how. He said, "I
see Frenchie working in the yard
all the time, but I-never see Wes-
ley out there." There he was
blaming his yard and the way it
looks on me! Passing the buck.
I don't think he fooled Betty
Otto one little. bit, though,, be-
cause I notice Dave has been
walking by himself the last few
days.
Dave was partially right, how-
ever. Frenchie won't let me touch
the plants in "her" yard. I get to
mix spray, mow sometimes, and
other menial tasks, but I trimmed
the rose bushes too close one


time and I've never been able to
get close to another one.
WITH THE ADVENT of sum-
mer, everything would be just
perfect if it wasn't for the pesky
mole crickets. It seems they be-
come the most active just when it
gets too hot to put forth all the ef-
fort to get rid of them.
The other day I noticed tun-
nels and exits out near the oak
tree and I thought, "If that's a
mole cricket. I just might ought to
leave him alone!"
The tunnel was about three
inches wide and pushed ground
up about two inches high where
he had travelled. His entrance
hole was about eight inches
across and I expected smoke to
belch out of the mound just any
second.
Roy Carter told me I had a
full-blown mole, instead of just a
mole cricket.
Yes it's summer, and with it
comes another pest to fight

The Out-of-Town Haircut
One of the great losses of our time, as far as I'm concerned, is
the decline of barber shops in our country. Barber shops are one of
the few places left where men and men only gather to receive a ser-
vice and talk to other men. I wrote an article about thigh a few years
ago.
When I was a lad I can remember going to Klinger's Barber
Shop in Ferry Pass, usually on' a Saturday morning. We almost al-
ways had to wait, but having to wait was not bad, because life was
lived at a slower pace back then. Besides that, I would get to listen
to all the men discuss the current events and offer solutions. A visit
to the barber shop was a "growing-up" experience for a young man
back then.
And it wasn't always serious events that were discussed. Most
of the time there were some friendly verbal 'jabs" traded among the
men gathered there and many stories were told, usually about
hunting, fishing or about some particular male/female relationship.
I don't recall ever hearing any profanity except one time when a
drunk man came in looking for his wife. He thought she was hiding.
in Mr. Klinger's house. He was quickly admonished for his foul lan-
guage and escorted to the door.
Barber shops are few and far between these days. Brooks' Bar-
ber Shop, owned and operated by Jim Brooks and located adjacent
to Henderson's Cafe, is where I get,my hair cut. Jim has been
cutting my hair for most of the 16 years I have been in Port St. Joe.
It's not that I have anything about women cutting my hair, buit
the haircut is not the important thing when I go to the barber shop.
I like the smell of a barber shop. I like the hair on the floor and the
jokes tacked to the wall and the hunting and fishing books in the
rack, but most of all, I enjoy the camaraderie of the barber and the
men in the shop. Men talk, about "men" things in itbarber s lioj,
like women talk about "female" things at a tea or a game of bidlge.
Men play poker, don't we? Well, I do.
Jim and I have an agreement and have had for several years. '-
When my son and the one before him go in for a haircut, Jim will
charge it for them and when I arrive for my haircut I will pay for
both. Sometimes they get two before I get there, but I pay for all of
them when :I get my hair cut.
This arrangement was a reason for concern to a gentleman who
arrived shortly after I did several weeks ago. But let me give you the
background that set the stage for his concern.
Several years ago when I went t6 get a haircut, I told Jim that I
was going to Tallahassee on some important business and I wanted
a good, light trim. "Oh," he said, "you want one of them 'going-out-
qf-town' haircuts, do you?" When I replied that I did, he informed
me that it would take longer and cost more. I told him to do whatev-
er it took, but to give me a good one. This was all in fun, of course,
'but has been a standing, dry joke we discuss from time to time.
A few weeks ago while getting a haircut, I mentioned to Jim that
I was going out of town on some important business so I wanted a
"going-out-of-town" haircut. There was only one other man in the
shop besides Jim and I. "Oh," said, Jim, "then you want one of them
expensive haircuts then!" and he proceeded to cut my hair. We
didn't mention it again, but I noticed the man waiting looked up in
wonder.
When Jim finished with me and brushed me off, I stood up and
Jim looked at his pad and said, 'That will be 14 dollars." I knew my
son had been in so I handed him a twenty and he gave me a five
and a one for change.
While this was going on, the man who was waiting had moved
to his place in the chair, a good vantage point to- see the monetary
transaction. I said goodbye and headed for the door..
Just as I was about to open the door I heard Jim ask the man
, how he wanted his .hair cut. The man replied: "A light trim and a lit-
tle off the top, but I don't want one of them 'going-out-of-town' hair-
cuts! I ain't leaving town!"
There ain't no place like a barber shop, men!

the children of Gulf County. He
has a good relationship with the
students.
He believes the three "R's"
need to be stressed. After the stu-
dents are in 'the higher grades, he
believes more vocational classes
should be offered. Everyone
should have a chance to excel. He
has observed that Gulf County
has good kids and dedicated
teachers in the school system. He
also thinks more parent-school
contact is needed.
In closing, the candidate says
we should all work together to see
that our children are not short-
changed in any way.


He would like to appeal to the
voters of District 3 to support
him.

Wewa Man Torched In Argument


Gulf County Sheriff Al Harri-,
son said yesterday that Jphnny
Bryant's condition is extremely
critical after experiencing burns
on 90% of his body after being
doused with gasoline and torched
by his brother, David Franklin
Bryant, 54. Both men are resi-
dents of Wewahitchka.
The incident happened as the
result of an on-going family argu-
ment which had been going on for
several months. The argument
was ignited by a $20,000 loan
made to Johnny Bryant by a
woman who is now David"
Bryant's wife.
Sheriff Harrison said Johnny
Bryant, who is a patient in the
burn center of a Mobile, Alabama
hospital was in extremely critical
condition from the bums. "He
might not recover," he pointed
out. In the meantime David
Bryant is a patient in a Panama
City hospital suffering from


burns, also, following the attack.
The Sheriff said the events
which led up to the attack were
as follows.
David's wife, Cheral, had
loaned Johnny, who operates
Bryant's Plumbing Service in We-
wahitchka, $20,000 to purchase
a well drilling machine. Shortly
after making the loan, Cheral be-
came angry because Johnny
didn't buy the type machinery
she thought he should have and
because they weren't making any
money off the machine.
Matters degenerated until
Johnny charged Cheral with har-
rassment and she was sum-
moned to court to answer to the
charges Wednesday. She pleaded
not guilty and her trial was set
for August.
At home that night, she dis-
cussed the case with her hus-
band, David and he said, 'This
has gone on far enough," and left


the house. ,
Cheral called the Sheriffs of-
fice in Port St. Joe and the Sheriff
at his home in Wewahitchka say-
ing her husband was headed for
Johnny's home at Stone Mill
Creek.
David, meanwhile, had ar-
rived ,at Johnny Bryant's home
and as he entered, took a jug of
gasoline he was holding behind
his back, took off the lid and
doused his brother with the flam-
mable fluid. He then struck his
lighter twice, but it failed to light.
As Johnny lunged at David to
push him back out of the door,
the lighter went off, engulfing
both men in flames.
Johnny Bryant's wife pulled
him from the living room to the
bathroom and turned the water
on in the shower to put out the
flames.
Arriving deputies found David
Bryant,. near Wewahitchka, be-,


side the road unconscious near
his vehicle. Johnny Bryant was
sitting on the front porch of his
home being treated by Paramed-
ics and was still conscious.
"Hardly anybody thought
anyone in Wewahitchka would in-
tentionally throw gas on someone
and set him on fire." Harrison
said, "Especially one of the
Bryants. They were well-
respected people.'
The Sheriff said he had per-
sonally known the Bryants for a
long time. "They were not violent
people."
The Sheriff has delayed filing
charges against David Bryant un-
til further investigation. 'There
will definitely be charges filed," he
said. "They will be either for at-
tempted murder or murder in the
first degree, if Johnny dies. And
right now, his chances don't look
very good for recovery."


Fitzgerald New ARC Director


To mte Editor:
When is news not "news"?
On page 9A of your May 28th
issue there is a boxed statement
that Nathan Peters, Jr. is backing
Ross Perot for President. In small-
er print it states that this is a
paid political announcement.
Oh the front page of the same
issue there is another political
announcement advising that Mr.
Hood is running for County Com-
missioner. This however, is not
followed by the smaller print stat-
ing that it was a paid political an-
nouncement. Further, on the
front page of your June 4th issue
you had evidently decided that
the campaigns of Mrs. Gortman
and Mr. Hanlon were not to be
construed as political announce-
ments.
I realize that you own the
newspaper and must make deter-
minations as to what does and
what does not constitute political
proclamations. Do you not see, as
I do, a shadow of disparity in
these cases?
Please understand that I have
no affiliation, association with
and have never met any of the
people mentioned in any of the
articles. I simply seek clarification
as to your logic in determining
that three candidates qualify for
mention as "news" items and the
fourth as a "paid political an-
nouncement".
Thank you,
Leo Hynes
Indian Pass
(Ed. note: This letter de-
serves a reply. It has been a long
standing policy of The Star to al-
low one free announcement to'
every local candidate which the
three you allude to were. In the
.case of Mr. Perot, we gave his
candidacy free space in previous
weeks. The box story was not
submitted by Mr.. Peters but by
Perot's campaign person in this
area and was considered a re-
quest from Perot's campaign for


votes. The Star has to draw the
line as to the number of free mes-
sages allowed each candidate or
campaign headquarters due to
limited space and. due to the fact
that we sell space to support this
newspaper. We hope this satisfac-
torily answers your question.]

THE STAR. PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, JUNE 11,1992


Faith Christian School Graduates First Senior Class


Friday night, May 22nd, was
a historic event for Faith Chris-
tian School. Shannon Marie Cain
and Michael Lee Hammond. were
given the. first diplomas ever is-
sued at Faith Christian. The
School was founded in 1974, 18
years ago. Four years ago, with
urging from parents, the School
began a senior high program.
Now it has over 145 students in
three year old kindergarten
through the 12th grade.
The White City Baptist
Church, the site of this event,
was filled to capacity. The pro-
gram began with awards to the


underclassmen. The 11th grade
awards went to Anthony Lee in
Advanced Math, English, Art and
Drama, Bible and History. Antho-
ny also finished second in the
VFW sponsored "Voice of Democ-
racy" presentation. Brandy Wil-
liams received awards in Span-
ish, Bible, Biology and
Economics. Bert Cain received an
award in Art and Drama. Tenth
grade awards were presented to
Amanda Bailey in Life Manage-
ment and Economics; Julie John-
son in Algebra; Gregory Capps
and Greg Lemons for Biology Lab
work. Ninth grade awards were


given to Mandy Fernandez in Life
Management and Physical Educa-
tion, and Tennele Johnson for
Physical Education.
Shannon Cain and Michael
Hammond were both recognized
as high honor graduates. They re-
ceived many individual awards
for academic excellence. They
both received awards from the
VFW "Voice of Democracy" con-
test and from Pensacola Christian
College for Christian Leadership.
Both seniors addressed the
audience. Shannon spoke of her
"gratitude to all those involved
with her education...including


God, her parents and her teaclb-
ers." Michael reminisced about
his teachers from years gone by.
The class motto was taken from a
quote by Winston Churchill...
'This is not the end, not even the
beginning of the end, but it is
perhaps, the end o6 the begin-
ning."
The challenge to the gradu-
ates was given by Rev. Fred Goe-
bert, the school's principal. He
shared with the audience the pur-
pose of Faith Christian School as
well as personal remembrances ol
Michael and Shannon. His chal-


lenge involved spending time in
God's Word daily, as well as talk-
ing with God frequently through-
out the day. He challenged the
seniors to be different. 'The only
way to make a difference in the
world, is to be different." He re-
minded them that parents are
still a good source for help and
information. He also told them to
make the most of their opportuni-
ties because life seems to pass by
so quickly. '
Special music was provided
by "Promise", a trio from Long Av-
enue Baptist Church. Krista Vin-


son, Vickie Lamberson and Sarah
Lamberson sang Find Us FaithfuL
Myrna Fernandez concluded the
program with a solo entitled My
Tribute.
The first diplomas were pre-
sented to Shannon and Michael
by Rev. Goebert followed by a hug
from Jackie Quarles, the school's
coordinator.
The graduation was followed
by a reception in the church's fel-
lowship hall. There was a fabu-
lous food display provided by the
parents, teachers and ladies of
White City Baptist Church.

Mrs. Knight told the students
about the animals and birds and
the rehabilitation process that
takes place and then finally, re-
lease of the critters back into the
habitat.
All the while she was talking,
Cornelius, a red-tailed hawk, was
"sitting" on her gloved hand. Cor-
nelius was of the permanently
disabled critters that could not be
released back into the_ wild.
The next hawk shared was
Dingha (the flyer), a swamp hawk
which could be either of two
kinds a red-shouldered hawk
or a broad wing hawk.
Weeper the Great Horned Owl
was next. Weeper was found in
the Chipola River area. Weeper
has a genetic disorder called juve-
nile cataracts, which is caused by
something the parent owls had
eaten or came in contact with at
some time.
Mrs. Knight stated 'that the
Great 'Horned needed piney
woods and that the owl hunts at
night as do other kinds of owls.
Ruffles, a swamp owl or
barred owl, likes people. It is
much smaller and is brown with
bar-looking tawny colored stripes.
Barney, the barn owl is al-
most gone because of lack of hab-
itat. He nests in steeples or barns
and needs a wide area for hunt-
ing of which he only eats mice or
rats.
tudwig von Barron is a bur-
rowing owl. He lives in gopher
holes, and eats mice, bugs, roach-
es and is slowly relocating and
adapting to the North Florida
area.
Mrs. Knight talked about the
turtles that after they are hit
by a vehicle, they are not always
dead...that just because the shell
is broken doesn't mean it is auto-
matically gone. The shell can be


healed using the same method
used at burn centers for humans.
Mrs. Knight encouraged the
students to take care of their en-
vironment and be more conscien-
tious of the habitat and the crit-
ters that share the Earth with us
as humans.


She cautioned the students
against touching animals that
could be carriers of rabies, partic-
ularly foxes and raccoons. If you
find babies that are abandoned or
an Injured animal, contact her or
the Florida Wildlife and Fisheries
Division.

"She was huge," they said. They

she "rested a lot." Then she left.


the girls told their parents and

check the nesting site out.
The girls named her "Dale".

caretta or loggerhead. The Che-
lonidae family also includes the
green, hawksbill and Ridley tur-
ties.
The loggerhead is the most
common one observed in the Gulf
waters. It can weigh up to 350
pounds or more and is from 36 to
45 inches wide.
The turtles nest on sandy
beaches, depositing eggs in a pit
dug with the hind flippers. They
lay from 100-120 eggs at one
time, beginning May 1 and end-
ing about October 1. The eggs
hatch in 65 days.
The nesting season is now
open. The crawl of a turtle looks
like a big tractor has come out of
the water, gone into a dune, and
gone back into the water. Some-
times the crawl is false. Mother
turtle is not quite ready to lay her
eggs and then she will return to
another portion of beach and lay
in a few nights. Most turtles lay
at night or in the early morning
hours.
There are volunteers who
.spend time looking for crawls,
checking nesting sites and filling
out reports. These .people are per-
mitted by the Department of Nat-,
ural Resources for this job, but
they also depend on the public to
notify them of finds. If you are
fortunate enough to come across
a turtle laying or you find a crawl
in the morning hours as you
walk, please call a volunteer.
Avoid disturbing the turtle or
nest, just enjoy watching. Please
do not walk on the nest or handle
the eggs.
Remember, lights, night time
activities and litter on the beach-
es disturb turtles. Also, it is a
Federal offense to molest or dis-
turb a sea turtle, its nest or eggs.
Below is a list of volunteers
and the area they cover
St. Joe Beach, Beacon Hill,
and Mexico Beach: Barbara Eells,
Paula and Henry Boone, and Flo

A summer baseball team for
Gulf County high school players
has been formed, and is compiled
of 15, 16, and 17 year old players
from Port St. Joe and Wewahitch-
ka High Schools. The team will
play its home games in Port St.
Joe and already has 14 games
scheduled.
Gulf County Baseball is
coached by Jim McKnight and
Kesley Colbert. McKnight said,
'We are glad to give these boys a
chance to play summer baseball.
In the past, there has been no
place for our young high school
players to play. They were falling
behind other area schools who
had teams or well organized sum-
mer programs. We are hopeful to
build on this team and perhaps
field a 15-16 year old team and a
17-18 year old team next year."
He stated a number of busi-
nesses have contributed to this
new program but stated further
assistance is needed. Start up
costs for a new team are signifi-
cant. Anyone or any business
that is interested in contributing
to Gulf County Baseball is asked
to call Jim McKnight at 639-
5828.
The Gulf County Baseball
team includes Port St. Joe
players: Josh Colbert, Adam Tay-
lor, Eric Ramsey, Desmond Bax-
ter, Sandy Quinn, Bryan Butts,
and David Liffick; Wewahitchka
players are Mike Morgan, Beau
Whitfleld, Jeremy Pridgeon, Andy
Clayton, Tranum McLemore, and
John Lynn.

SPLIT DOUBLEHEADER
Gulf County Baseball opened
their season with a 2-1 loss to
Apalachicola. Winning pitcher
Richard Abercrombie threw a
three hitter in five innings at
work. Losing pitcher Jeremy Prid-

SMOKING AND

MOUTH PROBLEMS


What does smoking have to
do with teeth? Plenty! Smoking
affects your whole mouth.
Smokers have more perio-
dontal (gum) disease than non-
smokers. Periodontal disease is
the largest cause of adult tooth
loss. Smoking can delay healing
in your mouth, it is a cause of
bad breath. Smoking stains your
teeth, making them yellow or
brown. Irritants and tobacco
smoke attack your taste buds,
thus preventing you from fully
enjoying foods.
Perhaps the most devastat-
ing danger of smoking is oral
cancer. Smokers have a four
times greater risk of oral cancer


than non-smokers. Last year
oral cancer struck more than
24,000 people; 8,000 of whom
died from it.
You can help prevent al-
most all of these problems if you
don't smoke. The next time you
think about lighting up, stop and
. remember the harmful effects
smoking causes in your mouth.
For your health's sake and
the comfort of others don't
smoke.

vice to promote better dental
health. From the office of:

Spain, France and England Fought Over Northwest Florida


In 1719 the Spanish Fort at Pensacola surren-
dered to the might of France. Pensacola was re-
turned, for France and 'Spain moved into alliance
under the coercion of English aggression. Henceforth
Spanish Florida was to suffer no further contraction
by the power of France. That which had been lost,
however, could not be recovered. France had carved
western Florida for herself while England had sliced
Atlantic Florida to her taste.*
By February of 1723, the new fort planned for
Santa Rosa had begun to take shape. Roofs were
brought from Fort San Joseph. A house was built for
Captain Primo de Rivera, twenty feet long, ten wide
and ten high, made of boards from San Joseph. A
powder magazine, ten feet long, eight wide and eight
tall was constructed of boards from San Joseph.
Twenty-four small buildings, built also of San Jo-
seph materials, were made for the dwelling of the
workmen and others of the populace.
What remained of the Spanish Fort of San Jo-
seph or of the Spanish Mission and Village that were
there, is not definitely known. Records indicate that
what did remain was given up as useless by 1738,
and that no permanent settlement was in existence
between 1738 and 1821 when Florida became an
American possession.**
The missing records of the existing Spanish set-
tlements betwe n the years of 1738 and 1763 are in
the Archives in' Seville, Spain.
With the end of the "Seven Years War" between
Spain and England, Spain lost the Floridas to Eng-
land. They were formally transferred by the Treaty of
Paris in 1763.
Although offered equal privileges with the Eng-
lish settlers by the New English government, nearly
all of the Spanish in West Florida moved elsewhere
* upon the English possession of the, country. St. Jo-


seph being a remote place, some came here, but the
most of them removed to the Spanish possessions,
Cuba, etc. However, most of the Spaniards giad al-
ready left the St. Joseph area before Florida fell into
the British hands, and it is altogether probable that
the Spaniards who settled on St. Andrews Bay be-
tween 1700 and 1763 were largely from the Mission
Settlement of St. Joseph.
On the seventh day of October, 1763, the King of
Great Britain erected within the countries ceded by
the treaty, four separate governments call East Flori-
da, West Florida, Quebec and Grenada.
West Florida was bounded southward by the
Gulf of Mexico from the Apalachicola River to Lake
Pontchartrain; westward by the same Lake Pohtchar-
train, Lake Maurepas and the Mississippi River; to
the northward by a line drawn from that part of the
Mississippi which lies in 31 degrees north latitude to
the River Apalachicola, and eastward by this same
river.**
In accordance with the treaty, Spain delivered
Florida to England on the arrival of the commanders
with their troops of occupation. Captain John Hedg-
es took possession of St. Augustine on July 20, and
Lieutenant Colonel Augustin Prevost received Pensa-
cola on August 6, 1763. The settlements of Spanish
Florida were in reality mere military posts support-
ing a few civilians; when the soldiers were with-
drawn, the settlers followed in their wake. Pensacola
was a crude village-like camp of huts and military
barracks which were constructed mainly of bark,
and which were without windows, fireplaces, or ade-
quate furnishings. Sandy soil, climate, and Insects
gave the British cause for many uncomplimentary
reports to home authorities. Economically Florida
*1was nqtV rofitable: her natural wealth was hidden
and difflchlt to exploit.*


The first charting of these shores, and of SL Jo-
seph's Bay appears to have been done by Admiral
Gauld, of the British Admiralty, who began the work
in 1764 and continued it through the next seven
years. (A copy of Gauld's chart may be found in the
Congressional Library at Washington.)***
As early as 1774 the West Florida ports loaded
ship after ship with skins and furs.*
1775. The American Revolutionary war drove
many loyalists to seek safety in Florida, then an
English possession. The larger part went to East
Florida, but many went to Pensacola. Among these
Swas William Panton, Esquire, the head of the great
trading house of PANTON, LESLIE & COMPANY,
with headquarters at Pensacola, and additional trad-
ing Posts established at Wells, St. Joseph, The Eng-
lish Trading Post (twenty miles from the mouth of
the Apalachicola River), and St. Marks.
At these points the English traders traded with
the settlers and the Indians in these sections, send-
ing out goods by packhorse-train and exchanging
them for anything the others had to offer. Among the
articles named as being received by this firm from
these parties were pine timber, lumber, rosin, tur-
pentine, pitch, cedar, indigo, salt-beef, hides, cattle,
tallow, bear's oil, salt-fish, staves, shingles, honey,
beeswax, Myrtle wax, dried venison, deer skins, furs
and peltry.
In 1779 there appeared the below description of
a chart, before mentioned, showing the depths of the
Bay of St. Joseph and surrounding waters and the
site of "The Ruins of St. Joseph,"as of 1779. to have
been on the tip of the St. Joseph's Point. across St.
Joseph and the Mainland, where the first Spanish
Bort. Sarnish Mission and Spanish Village of St. Jo-


seph (before 1700) apparently were located.
Description reads:

Great Britain by Joseph R.W. Des Barres under the
direction of the right hon. The Lords Commissioners
of the Admiralty, Vols. 3 fol. London, 1774-1781."
The dealer's note on the map does not give the
same title, but the area defined is the same:

'THE RUINS OF ST. JOSEPH."**
When Spain reacquired Florida in 1783, she
claimed all the territory formerly known as British
East and West Florida.*
Historian George R. Fairbanks said: Upon the re-
occupation of Florida by the Spaniards in 1784, but
few of the former Spanish inhabitants returned.
They had become settled in other lands and made
new occupations. The fine estates upon the coasts...
left by the retiring English proprietors remained un-
occupied, a prey to that rapid decay which so soon
reclaims to native wildness the labor of years."**

There are a lot of bird super-
stitions which have been passed
down from generation to genera-
tion.
Some people believe birds
bring bad luck. For example pea-
cock feathers in the house are be-
lieved to bring misfortune.
This superstition probably
originated during the time when
peacocks were only owned by the
rich. Poachers who stole the pea-
cocks were treated severely if they
killed one.
Many black birds also are
classed as unlucky. These birds
are thought to be the Devil's mes-
sengers, particularly crows and
ravens.
The six ravens in the Tower of
London have been there since
William the Conqueror's time. If
they leave or the numbers dwin-
dle, it is said that the monarchy
will end.
In order to prevent this, one
wing was clipped to prevent
flight. Winston Churchill made
sure.the numbers were preserved
during the war.
Bird superstition has also
been associated with death.
Supposedly, a bird tapping
on a window means that someone
in the house will soon die.
Fortunately, some supersti-
tions have helped to preserve
birds.

Teaching Isn't Always A Picnic!
The following article was writ-
ten by Richard H.-Lewis. a Cali-
fornia teacher. It, was printed in
the Washington Post. It was re-
printed in response to a letter
bashing teachers. Here it is:
"If you believe education is
our future, the future looks
bleak. The very people on whom
education depends are now expe-
riencing a crisis in morale.
If you think teaching is an
easy job, reflect on how you
would enjoy spending an entire
day with 30 of your neighbors'
kids and their friends.
Suppose of those 30 stu-
dents, 12 speak only Spanish,
Hmong or Lao. Five of the stu-
dents had no breakfast this
morning. One girl spent the night
with her mother going from bar to
bar looking for her stepfather.
Two students are exhausted.
They were up all night listening to
their alcoholic parents argue. An-
other is distraught because a boy
friend beat up her mother last
night.
Remember to send the boy to
the office to take his medicine
that helps keep him calmed
down. The student next to him
must see the psychologist in 30
minutes to help work out his mol-
estation problems. Two students
in the front row are too sick to be
at school. They may infect the en-
tire school with flu. Deep down


you have a terlilble feeilhg that
these kids were sent to school be-
cause there is nobody home.
What are you going to do with
the student who has lost his third
social studies book this semes-
ter? The librarian says we are out
of books.
When you donate your time
for open house' tonightr, try to
convince those who will listen
that there will be: no educational
reform without parental interven-
tion. Let them know they must
insist that their children' turn off
the TV and spend the evening
studying. Blaming failing grades
on too much TV is a cop-out. It is
the parents' responsibility to po-
lice the viewing. Parents have an
obligation to take control of their
children's lives. Children, are not
just small adults.
Don't forget to return the tele-
phone call from the parent who
wants to know what you are do-
ing wrong that causes his or her
child to misbehave at home.
Remember to write the $400
check for the mandatory college
class that you must take this
summer so you can keep teach-
ing.
Most people believe* you get
paid during your -time off, but

Eliminate Mosquito Breeding Grounds Now!


With peak mosquito season
approaching, Florida Agriculture
Commissioner Bob Crawford is
urging the public to eliminate
mosquito breeding grounds and
reduce contact with the bother-
some pest.
In an effort to curtail' Flori-
da's mosquito population and re-
duce health risks to humans and
animals, the Department of Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
has launched an education cam-
paign aimed at helping Floridians
protect themselves.
The Department is enlisting
the help of homeowners, day care
center operators, campground op-
erators and senior citizen groups


to eliminate standing water in
neighborhoods, campgrounds,
day care centers and other places
where people are most at risk to
the mosquito's bite,
"We've had another warm
winter and heavy rainfall. That
means conditions are right for a
bumper crop of mosquitoes this
spring and summer," Crawford
said. "Since mosquitoes generally
don't travel great distances from
their breeding ground, people
who take the time to eliminate
those breeding grounds in their
neighborhoods can greatly reduce
the likelihood of contracting a
mosquito-borne illness."
Crawford noted that young


children, adults over age 55 and
people who spend a lot of time
outdoors are at greater risk and
should take special precautions.
"Mosquitoes can breed- in a
very small amount of still water.
We are urging homeowners, day
care centers and campground op-,
erators to look around and elimi-
nate sources of standing water,
such as old tires, trash can lids,
kiddie pools or birdbaths," Craw-
ford said.
Crawford noted that a breed;
of mosquito, named the Asian Ti-.
ger Mosquito because of its mark-.
ings, came into Florida in 1986 in
a boatload of used tires from Ja-
pan or Taiwan. Because standing


water in improperly discarded or
stored tires is a major breeding
ground, researchers and mosqui-
to control personnel have started
calling it simply "the tire mosqui-
to." This mosquito, unlike many
of the other strains found
throughout Florida, is active dur-
ing daylight hours, so eliminating
breeding grounds is the best de-
fense.
The Department is also urg-
ing horse owners to vaccinate
their animals against Eastern
equine encephalitis, a viral dis-
ease that attacks the central net-
vous system of horses and is of-
ten fatal. Last year, veterinarians
reported more than 150 cases of'


the disease, and animal health of-
ficials estimated that three to four
times that number of cases went
unreported. ,
Crawford said state funding
for mosquito control is at an all
time low -.- about 15 percent of
last year's budget. That's why it's
especially important for people to
take steps'to protect themselves,'
he said.
Crawford said the Depart-
ment, which oversees the state's
mosquito control efforts, recom-
mends that people avoid mosqui-
to-plagued areas, particularly at
night, reduce mosquito breeding
grounds, wear protective clothing
and use insect repellents.

Love Bugs

Aren't Very


Lovable
By Roy Lee Carter
County Extension Director
"Love-Bugs" are small black
flies with a red thorax. The males
are 1/4 inch and the females are
1/2 inch in length. They are na-'
tive to Florida as well as other
states and countries bordering
the Gulf of Mexico and Caribbean
Sea. Their appearance in penin-
sula Florida was insignificant un-
til recent years.
Large flights of these insects
were reported in the Florida pan-
handle as early as the late
1950's. However, Southern Loui-
siana had experienced them in
the 1920's. By 1969, mass flights
were reported over approximately
one-fourth of the Florida peninsu-
la.
Flights of "love bugs" are in
May and September. They extend
over about a four week period,
with the September flights usual-
ly being the largest. During these
mating flights, the females will
mate three to five times.
Female "love bugs" lay ap-
proximately 350 eggs in or on the
soil under partially decaying vege-
tation. The larvae (immature
forms), develop in decaying organ-
ic matter, especially in hardwood
hammocks. The larvae feed on
decaying vegetation, and perform
a useful function by converting it
into available plant foods. After
the larvae mature, they transform
into pupae and the adults emerge
in about one week.
Adult "love bugs" are harm-
less and do not sting or bite. They
feed on nectar and pollen, of vari-
ous flowers, -especially goldenrod
and clover. The flight of the "love "
bug" is restricted to daylight'
hours. At night they rest in low-
growing vegetation.
The problem associated with
the "love bug" is the insects spat-


Where Did

the Fork


Come From?

It's surprising how old some
things really are. The following is
a list of objects that have been in
use for a long time.
eDid you know that soap has
been around since the first centu-
ry?
Cakes of soap have been dis-
covered in the ruins of Pompeii,
along with a soap factory for
making them.
*Coleslaw is 200 years old.
It's name came from the Dutch:
"Kool" means cabbage and "slaw"
means salad.
*Archeologists have discorv-
ered apple pictures carved in
rock, and the remains of apples
in lake dwellings from prehistoric
times.
*The playing cards we use to-
day actually originated in Asia.
Hearts, spades; clubs and di- ,,.
amends were not always on the
cards. They were first added by
the French.
*The Egyptians used buttons
4,000 years ago. They became
popular in Britain during the.
14th and 15th centuries. Queen
Elizabeth I used pearls as but-
tons.
All through the ages, buttons
have been made of silver, gold, di-
amonds, jewels, ivory, shells,
glass, bone and, today, plastic.
Some are ornamental, such
as those on the sleeves of coats.
Originally, buttons were made for
a practical purpose: To fasten
clothing.
*Cicero's secretary used a
type of shorthand back in 100
B.C.
When Isaac Pitman first pub-
lished his method of writing
shorthand in 1837, it quickly re-
placed other forms that had been
used in England since the 16th
century.
'*Back in the 16th century,
King Henry III of France invented
the fork, because he did not want
to stain his white collar.
Before the fork was invented,
most people ate meat with their
hands.
Ask your parents what they
used when they were young.

Have you ever walked along
the sidewalk when someone else
was walking the other way to-
wards you? As you get closer, nei-
ther one of you was quite sure
what the other would do to keep
you both from colliding. Most of'
the time, a subtle early move this
way or that was enough to make
your intentions clear. But once in
a while, If you waited too long,.
the same moment that you
zigged, the other person zagged.
The result? Collisionl The same Is
true when operating a boat. But
fortunately there is a better way.
As National Safe Boating
Week (June 7 13) approaches,
the Florida Marine Patrol reminds
boaters that the navigation rules
are a system designed to prevent
not only collisions, but close
calls. But like a life jacket, which
only helps those who wear it
properly, the navigation rules
only help persons who under-
stand them sufficiently and apply
them effectively. They are the best
safety system we have for dealing
with other boats. To receive infor-
mation on the navigation rules or
other boating safety regulations,
contact the Florida Marine Patrol
Boating Safety Section at (90.4),-
488-5600 ext. 28, or write to
3900 Commonwealth Blvd., Talla-
hassee, FL 32399.

As summer vacation
begins, children tend to
want to forget about
school. But parents who
care about their children
will encourage them to
read during the summer,
broadening their horizons.
Take the time to read to
your children, and
encourage them to use the
library. It's time well
spent. We're proud of the
parents who make reading
a commitment... and
we're proud of our
hometown.
