SPrison Bringing 300 Jobs


DOC Gives Commission Report,


L :l',4
Bill Thurber, of DOC, gives
opening schedule, Tuesday.


Bill Thurber, with the Florida Depart-
ment of Corrections, told the Gulf County
Commission, Tuesday, that the state prison
located in Gulf County was getting ready to
receive its first load of inmates just as soon
as possible.
'This process didn't start until a little
more than two weeks ago, when we found
out we were going to have funding for the
facility. We set right to the work of getting
the prison staffed and open for business,"
he said.
The prison has been partially completed
since September of last year. It was com-
pleted to the point where partial occupancy
could be initiated and the work of complet-
ing the complex started by prison labor.
"As it is, we let contracts just a little
over a week ago to complete the two dormi-
tories, utilizing some inmate labor and the
work of contractors. We hope to have the
complex completely built .and occupied by
fall of next year," Thurber said. '"When the
prison is 100% complete, it will house over
900 inmates and the state will have an in-
vestment of $18 million."


HIRING IMMEDIATELY
"Hiring of security officers and support
people will begin immediately," Thurber
said. "We will set up shop in Wewahitchka
Monday evening to begin the system of hir-
ing 50 attendants to get started with our
project. When we get in full operation, we
will have an annual payroll of $7.5 million.
That should make quite an impact on the
County."
The DOC official pointed out that the
state would be holding seminars for local
businesses also. "We hope to purchase
most of what we need to operate with, right
here in Gulf County. It will be purchased by
the bid system and the State of Florida has
decided that bids they receive will be filled
out in a certain way. We'll be holding semi-
nars to instruct local business firms in fill-
ing out the bids correctly," he said.
300 JOBS AT COMPLETION
When the prison is fully completed and
occupied to its maximum, Thurber said it
would employ approximately 300 people,
making it the second largest single employ-


lime for Opening
er in Gulf County.
People who work in the prison have cer-
tain requirements which must be met.
Thurber said the purpose of the employ-
ment team coming to Wewahitchka Mon-
day, is to inform potential employees of
qualifications they must meet. Many who
hope to gain employment at the state facili-
ty, have already taken a required course on
law enforcement through Gulf Coast Com-
munity College.
BIG EFFORT SPENT ON PROJECT
Considerable effort was spent on the
project by interests in Wewahitchka, to se-
cure the prison, one of two built in Florida,
for Gulf County. The Wewahitchka Cham-
ber of Commerce was especially active in
the project, through a committee headed by
Hub Norris. They presented two possible
sites' for the installation to be built on with
the DOC selecting the 200 acre site it pres-
ently occupies.
The prison is located west of Stone Mill
Creek Subdivision, in a secluded spot, on
property formerly owned by the Neal Lum-
ber Company.

A total of 25 candidates signed on the dotted line and de-
clared themselves candidates, on the first official day of qualifi-
cation for the fall election in Gulf County.
Fourteen of the 25 candidates gathered in the office of Super-
visor of Elections Cora Sue Robinson to file papers and pay their

ready swapping campaign stories about biting dogs and hot
days.
Ten of the 25 candidates gathered petitions to get their
names included on the ballot, rather than pay the sometimes
hefty qualification fees imposed by Florida law. The other 15

trict 5, is expected to qualify for re-election. She said William S.
Quarles'had informed her office that he would be candidate for
the same office as soon as he can get all his petitions signed.
The qualification "window" will remain open for the remain-
der of this business week. According to Supervisor of Elections
Robinson, the qualification books will remain open until the
close of business, 5:00 p.m. Friday.


Boat Loses Battle for Space
This fishing boat, owned by Fred Buskens of Overstreet,
lost a battle over "space" Saturday night and lost. A tug-boat,
pushing a barge up the Intracoastal Canal late at night, ap-
proached a curve in the Canal at Overstreet, where Buskens
lives and has his boat moored. The barge brushed the fishing
o boat and shoved it up on the bank of the Canal. At last re-
ports, Monday, Buskens said the barge company was sending
a crane to the site to set his boat back in the water.


David Young, Michael Hammond, Helen Ramsey, David Ion Graham and Paul Sewell, gather around Supervisor of
Ambrose, Phyllis Beaman, Ed Creamer, Mary Ellen Gortman, Elections Cora Sue Robinson, to file their qualification pa-
Sheriff Al Harrison, Bryant Copeland, Eda Ruth Taylor, Way- pers as the starting gun sounded Monday.

Hammock Retiring
As Harbormaster
William R [Billy] Hammock,
who has served Gulf County as
Harbormaster for the past 40
years, said this week he will not
be seeking re-election to that
post.
Hammock said he feels it is
time for him to step down, so he
is making his decision known in
plenty of time for someone else to
qualify to seek election to the po-
sition.



DOC Rep

Setting

Up Office
George Sweeney, with
the Florida State Depart-
ment of Corrections, will be
in Wewahitchka Monday, to
assist people in filling out
applications for employ.
ment in the new state pris-
on located in Gulf County.
Sweeney said his center
of operations will be the
Community Building in We-
wahitchka. He will be in the
office from 6:00 to 8:00
p.m.
Sweeney said he will be
available to answer ques-
tions concerning employ-
ment, accept applications
and answer any questions
about filling out the forms.


public officials by an "At Large"
voting method, abandoning the
"Single Member District", now be-
ing used.
Passed on a 3-2 vote by the
Gulf County Commission Tues-
day, the question on whether or
not to change will be put to the
voters in the fall election. Super-
visor of Elections, Cora Sue Rob-
inson, told The Star the question
could be on the September 8 bal-
lot. 'We're Just not sure at the
present time," she added. "The
November ballot is already so
crowded with Constitutional
Amendments, it just might be
placed on the September list."
The question of whether or
not to change came to a head
Tuesday afternoon, when the
Board approved the referendum
after an emotion-packed discus-
sion, with supporters on both
sides expressing their wishes.
EMOTIONAL OPPOSITION
Playing to his audience like a
revival preacher, County Commis-
sioner Nathan Peters, Jr., defend-
ed the single member district
method of selecting elected offi-
cials. Peters' words, defending the
method of electing officials, were
aimed directly at the 25-30 black
citizens of Port St. Joe who were
present at the meeting, register-
ing their protest, also.
The speaker drew expres-
sions of support from his audi-
ence, as his voice rose and fell to
emphasize the seriousness of the
situation.
Peters said he felt as if the
Chairman's aim [to change the
election manner to an "at large"
method of choice] was "Racist".
"LET EVERYONE
HAVE A VOICE"
Billy Traylor, Chairman of the
Board and originator of the idea
for change, countered the state-


ment, denying that his motives
were racist, saying, "I just want to
give all of Gulf County a hand in
choosing this entire Board. I have
no desire of denying a minority a
seat on this Board. As a matter of
fact, I insist on them having one,
whatever.system we end up with."
Sally Jenkins, a spokesper-
son for leaving the voting method
as it now stands, said, "I feel like
you're trying to take our district
from us. I'm disturbed. .There is
no way we will support a change."
Robert Bryant said, "I agree it
[single member district] isn't fair
the way it is, but we have worked
50 years to get this far and now
you're asking us to trust you to
take us back like it was before."
Chairman Traylor defended
his idea even further by stating,
'There is a minority group in the
north end of the County. I would
like to extend the minority dis-

David Byrd Up
for Re-Election
David L. Byrd announced his
intention to seek re-election to
the position of School Board
Member for District 4.
Byrd, completing his first
term on the Board, said he felt
the experience of serving his first
term made him qualified for the
position.
The candidate cited his 'de-
sire. to work, his record of de-
pendability, his assertiveness and
willingness to work for the benefit
of the school system as a whole
as attributes for re-election.
The Board Member said that
as a School Board Member he
would be available to anyone who
needs him, represent everyone
fairly and present their concerns
to the School Board for consider-
ation.

He Grew On You Z

Senator Vince Bruner need not worry about whether or not
he will be remembered in the State Legislature. His decision not
to seek re-election will not relegate his name to the collection of
trivia questions about who served in the Legislature from the
Third District in 1988-92. Senator Vince Bruner has made a
name for himself, if for no other reason than being a maverick
who thought taxes were too high and regulations stifled people.
Probably the start of Bruner's reaching the decision to quit
was Senator Gwen Margolis stripping him qf his committee lead-
erships because he refused to vote as she wanted. Talk about
stifling! ... In this instance it was the Constitutionally protected
free speech. Senator Margolis should be the one to quit, rather My

occasions. One was to fund the opening of a new state prison, some re
built and sitting idle just north of Wewahitchka. We are sure he to hire a
would have been right in the thick of things to defend the rights "Jos]
of commercial fishermen to continue using their nets to ply their about go
trade over the months to come. The young man didn't back "Like
down easily. Boaz?"
He became so disgusted with the Democratic party and their Have
posturing, that he changed party affiliation. He didn't just moan was 10-
and groan over the situation; he did something about it. He did black w.
about the only thing he could to attract dramatic attention to
the situation.
One might think it selfish of us to think this way, but Sena-
tor, we wish you would reconsider. We can empathize with your
wish to spend more time with your family, but a man of your de-
termination would find the time, even if you told some of those
state chores to step aside for a while. We can use you part time
better than some potential Senators full time. Gwen Margolis
comes to mind as an example.


Getting Ready I

Some time ago, we had an editorial pointing out the many
people in Gulf County who are always ready to step in the gap
and offer help where help is needed. The article pointed out that
these people could always be counted on. You could take them
for granted because they were faithful and they were always
ready to do their part wherever they were needed.
Nothing emphasized this past editorial quite so much as the
state-wide disaster preparedness exercise of two weeks ago. Of
course, the people were gearing u-'for the hurricane season we
iall hope doesn't come. But regardless, somebody must get pre-
pared to deal with the situation when and if it arrives.
Well, there were about 50 people in Gulf County who offered
their time that Friday to get ready to do their part when the time
comes. We suppose there is nobody quite like the ham radio op-
erators in these trying times when an emergency presents Itself.
Not only do they give of their time, but they make thousands of
dollars worth of their own equipment available for use In taking
fdare of our welfare and our property. All they wish as compensa-
tion is the satisfaction that they could and did help.
We've been through storms in the past, sitting at the Fire De-
partment, in case of a fire, and let it be understood, it is Just as
scary for those protecting our lives and property as it is for the
ones who had the good sense to leave. It might be just a little bit
more scary because the responsibility of what they do necessi-
tates they get out in the the raging storm at times.
There are people from all walks of life involved in the County
disaster program, training on their own time, getting ready to
serve when the need arises, on a moment's notice. Storms are
their main concern, but there are other dangers which exist in
and around Gulf County in which they face a far greater risk of
personal safety. But you can depend on them to be there as
needed, trained and ready to serve.
We don't say it often enough, but we do appreciate you peo-
ple giving of your time, risking your life, leaving your families to
the protection of others, to do your deed as good neighbors.

I sold those Grits for a while

The problem was, when I collect-

Kansas City. I reckon that's why
that advertising on the inside of
the last page caught my atten-
tion. You could get rich in your

could be an "entrepreneur in 10

rine Salve selling kit. I wrote off


for the White Rose plan. Ricky
Gene sent for the Cloverine. I was
afraid of that Cloverine stuff I
didn't know what an entrepren-
eur was.
I found out some cold hard
facts of life the first week I was in
business. A lot of people didn't
want that White Rose Salve. I had
a terrible time selling that -
"Kes, you've got to have a
gimmick."
I was willing to listen to Ricky
Gene 'cause he was selling that
Cloverine stuff like It was going
out of style. I went door-to-door
with him. "No, boys, I don't think

Boy howdy, I've heard that, I
turned to leave. "Ma'am, thank
you for wanting to help," was that
a tear in Ricky Gene's eye, "we're
just needing to sell this salve so
we can help grandmother with
her operation. We've got to go
now. We've got to sell as quick as
we can. The doctors don't know
how long grandmother can hold

The lady bought four cans! I
couldn't believe it! We sold every-
thing we had in a week-and-a-
half and qualified for the extra
merchandise bonus.

Everybody Talks About the Weather...


But It's Time to be Hot!


LAST WEEK, everybody was
complaining about the hot weath-
er we were having. I'd meet some-
body on the street, and immedi-
ately, they'd come forth with a,
"Hot enough for you?"
Of course, I would also invari-
ably answer with a curt. 'Yep!" I
didn't want to expend any more
energy than necessary, in the
blistering heat [and humidity] we
experienced last week. I broke out
in a sweat just thinking about
something I had to do.
As I have said before, I sweat.
I don't perspire. Some people can
stand the hottest temperatures of
the day and never even get a
damp upper lip. Deodorants wer-
e.n't made for them.
The heat, coupled with the
stifling humidity made it tough to
be active in doing anything dur-
ing the past week. It was a miser-
able week. It was a sweaty week.
It was a week of dashing from one
air conditioned building to anoth-


er; of leaving the car motor run-
ning while stepping inside for just
a moment.

THE HEAT WASN'T unusual
for this time of the year. The last
time I looked at the calendar, it
was July. That means it is just
about the middle of the summer
and it is supposed to be hot. No
mystery about that. It has been
getting hot in July ever since it
was placed in the middle of the
calendar.
And this July isn't setting
any records. Why, it hasn't even
been 100 degrees yet.


I remember back about 15
years ago on a July 4, a contrac-
tor was putting a new roof on my
house. He was running behind so
he was working on the holiday.
The temperature that day
was a blistering 101 degrees.
The contractor was doing
very well. He was standing down
on the ground beside the ice wa-
ter cooler, partaking sumptuous-
ly. His men were on the roof and
shortly after noon,- one of them
just keeled over. The "bear" had:
himl
I HAVE KNOWN some sum-
mers, let me tell you. For a short


while I worked in Middle Georgia.
That place is the arm pit of the
south. It gets hotter there than it
does on the equator. The summer
is cursed by gnats which crawl in
your ears, in your eyes, up your
nose, and fly in your mouth. All
of this gnat activity around peo-
ple occurs just after they leave
the posterior of some horse
standing in the shade, flapping
its tail back and forth, trying to
keep the pesky varmints driven
away.
So, you see, there are worse
things than having a rivulet of
sweat course down your back and
trickle down your leg. There are
worse things than the smell of
your underarms when you reach
for something on the shelf, after a
long day of suffering from the sti-
fling heat.
SUMMER TIME AND its
ever-present heat, makes 'your
pants stick to your backside after
you have sat in one place for a


few moments.
Your pocket gets wet from
your handkerchief after you have
wiped the sweat out of your eyes
a time or two. There's nothing
like a wet pocket. Every time you
reach your hand in it, to retrieve
something, it will surely, without
fail, turn wrong side out when
you withdraw your hand.
Of course, the lemonade
tastes better in July and August
than at any other time of the
year. A cold shower is invigorat-
ing. An ice cube held in your
mouth to melt offers a tingle of
comfort rarely experienced at any
other time.
A fan softly blowing across
your body feels absolutely deli-
cious and the air conditioning
stirs up your sinus passages.
But, don't you dare turn it offil Let
the air conditioner blow cool
breezes while you continue to
blow your nose.
THE HOT SUMMER time is


also l.he host for delicious red,
ripe watermelons. The tempera-
ture is tough on the ones who'
have to harvest them and load
them on trucks and transport
them to all of us panting civil-
ians.
A watermelon handler ought
to get hazardous pay. He deserves
it, what with flirting with heat-
stroke and all. The work of har-
vesting red, ripe tomatoes hap-
pens during the summer time
also. They stand alone in their
league for taste.
All in all. I suspect the dis-
comfort of the heat of summer is
made bearable by these Joys and
comforts which accompany it.
Mother Nature knew we all
needed to sweat for a day or two,
to get rid of the poisons in our
body. Like my mother of a long
time ago; she used to temper the
bad taste of medicine with some-
thing which I liked very much.
Mother Nature does the
same.

Why Is It?
Why is it that:
*There is never an oncoming car when you're behind a slow
driver on a long curve, but the minute you're out of the curve and
can pass, there's a string of cars a mile long; sometimes longer?
*Some people are ashamed of their age when they should be
glad that they have lived as long as they have? I'm proud of every
day of my almost 39 years.
*The minute you think you've got it made, something pops up
to burst your bubble? Could it be that we are not the captain of the
ship, but Just the one doing the rowing?
*When you reach the age that you don't care what your hair
looks like, you don't have that much to not care about?
*We are never "old" at the age we are? I wonder if I'll feel old if I
live to be 80, and I hope I do. I

have much more fun if we felt like it?
*An object is never as high as it seems standing on the ground,
but is twice as high when you're standing on top of it?
*We worry about things that we know won't happen, but we
worry on? If it's human nature, I'm more human than anyone I
know.
*The man who invented "charge cards" wasn't hanged? If he is
still alive it may not be too late. Who was (is) he?
*A woman adds an air to a home that no man can match? There

Healy Speaks

to Lions Club
Frank Healy, representing the
City of Port St Joe, was the guest
speaker at the July 8th Lions
Club regular meeting. Healy gave
a very informative talk on the
City's recycling program. It ap-
pears that no stone has been left
unturned in the effort to reduce
the amount of waste that has to
be hauled to the incinerator or
landfill.
Healy stressed the impor-
tance of every person in the com-
munity getting involved In the re-
cycling program.' Currently the
City of Port St Joe is picking up
bagged recyclable items such as
glass bottles, aluminum cans, tin
cans, clear plastic (soda bottles
and milk containers). All bottles
and cans must be rinsed out!
More detailed information on
the recycling effort will be provid-
ed in the near future. However,
you can get involved now by con-
tacting Port St. Joe City Hall at'
229-8261 or 229-8263.

Comprehensive Plan Signed, Delivered

Williamsburg Water System Construction Project Bids Received


Gulf County has finally, offi-
cially, received approval of its
Comprehensive Plan. Tony Ar-
rant, representing the Depart-
ment of Community Affairs and
engineer Gay Smith, of Hamilton
Smith Associates, were present
for the regular meeting Tuesday,
to nail down the approved docu-
ment and put an end to nearly
four years of work and planning.
The County has worked un-
der a stipulated agreement since
June, agreeing to the state im-
posed Plan, contingent on the
state of Florida officially approv-
ing what its agency had ham-
mered out with Gulf County.
The State finally put its seal


of approval on the document.
Smith was present to turn
the document over to the County
and correct several typographical
errors contained in the docu-
ment, after calling the Board's at-
tention to them.
The County first adopted
their version of the compiled Plan
on July 10, 1990, and has spent
the past two years, bargaining
with DCA on the several items
covered by the document and fine
tuning its language.
The Plan goes into effect im-
mediately.
Part of the Plan has been felt
by W. E. Marshall of Howard
Creek, who had a building permit


for a new home turned down be-
cause the plans didn't show the
floor of the dwelling to be at least
15 feet above sea level.
Marshall will ask for a vari-
ance, explaining that he has lived
in the community for five years in
a home which was built much
closer to the ground and has nev-
er been flooded during periods of
high water.
WATER, SEWER BIDS
The Board received bids on
the proposed water system for
Williamsburg Subdivision near
Wewahitchka.
Water for the Subdivision had
been a long-time project which


had received numerous rejections
in requests for construction
funds from grants in the past.
Last December, the district re-
ceived approval of a $500,000
grant to give service to Williams-
burg and Methodist Hill, another
subdivision which joins the City
Limits line of Wewahitchka on the
northwest.
The bids received Tuesday
were for the Williamsburg section
of the project and covered a spec-
trum from $386,292.82 to
$448,093.16. There are two alter-
nates in the bids and the County
will study the bids to determine
which is the lowest and best bid
received, before making a deci-
sion about which firm to hire.
The three bids came from
North Florida construction,
Clarkesville; C&B Mechanical,
Blountstown and KMT, Inc., Lynn
Haven.

Last Rites Set for
Dalton Walsingham
Dalton A. Walsingham, 82,
passed away Tuesday, July 14 in

ed illness. A native of Altha, he

Nurse Practitioners

In Medical Places
By
S ^*^ Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

Within recent years we have had more and more nurse practi-
tioners working in different medical settings. People are often not
familiar with a nurse in the practitioner role, and frequently ask
questions about their qualifications and duties.
The practitioner is first a registered professional nurse. She (or
he) has usually worked for several years in a specific area of inter-
est such as obstetrics, pediatrics, allergy or family practice. After
becoming interested in a particular area, the nurse returns to
school to complete the requirements for certification as a nurse
practitioner. This means that in addition to the B.S. or B.S.N. de-
gree, an additional two years of college is required. Upon satisfacto-
ry completion of an approved program, nurse practitioners apply to
the State Board of Nursing, and if all requirements are met, receive
the designation of advanced registered nurse practitioner.
Some of the thrusts of most nurse practitioner programs in-
clude teaching the patient to handle disease and treatment. This
can include chronic disease problems as well as acute illness.
Teaching healthy lifestyles to help the patient maintain good
health is a maJor component of training and a major interest of
most practitioners.
Nurse practitioners can: Obtain health histories; Perform physi-
cal examinations; Order and interpret laboratory and diagnostic
studies; Diagnose health problems; Develop a treatment plan; Or-
der therapy; Make referrals; Provide counseling and teaching; Pre-
scribe medications.
Nurses have been an integral part of medical care since Flor-
ence Nightingale. They are to be congratulated on the nurse practi-
tioner expansion from usual nursing care. In this expanded role we
will see many contributions.

IMake Friends with Your


Garbage Man


-Set Your

Garbage

at the:

Curb

on Pick-up

Days


Your Public Works Department is- performing a number of tasks in order to reduce
your garbage collection and disposal fee to the minimum possible, including the col-
lection of recyclable materials. This collection of recyclable materials such as card-
board requires more collection man-hours than are available in the, normal garbage
collection shift.
In order to accommodate the collection of recyclables during the normal garbage col-
lection shift, Public Works is requesting that all households in Port St. Joe place
their garbage and recyclables at the curb or- on the alley,, whichever is appropriate,
on their scheduled garbage collection days. This action on your part will significantly
speed up the garbage and recyclable collection task, thus allowing all of the collec-
tion to take place during a normal eight hour shift, which in turn reduces the collec-
tion cost and ultimately your garbage collection fee..
Backyard collection of garbage and recyclables will probably be discontinued at
some time in the future, except for special cases such as the elderly and infirm,
but in the meantime you can help your city significantly reduce costs and provide
a more efficient service by cooperating in this endeavor.

Florida Spaceweek to be Observed


In observance of mankind's
first steps on the moon and the
many achievements of the U.S.
space program, various activities
are scheduled as part of Florida
Spaceweek during July 16-24.
Spaceweek is a national celebra-
tion of Apollo 11's historic mis-
sion which landed Americans on
the moon and returned them
safely to earth in 1969.
"Florida has enjoyed 40 years
of economic and educational de-
velopment fueled by our nation's
space program," said Edward
O'Connor, executive director of
the Spaceport Florida Authority.
"While Spaceweek provides an op-
*, portunity for our state to recog-
nize the tremendous positive im-
pact of NASA. military, and
commercial space programs, it
should also provide a forum for
Floridians to express their sup-
port for vital space projects like
Space Station Freedom, which
now faces the very real threat of
cancellation by Congress."
Events planned during Flori-
da Spaceweek include public
meetings sponsored by various
chapters of the National Space
Society; activities at U.S. Space
Camp and the Astronaut Hall of
Fame; and a July 22 reception at
the Capitol in Washington spon-
sored by Florida Congressman
Jim Bacchus, the Cocoa Beach
Area Chamber of Commerce, and
other Central Florida organiza-
tions.
The Washington reception is
one of several Spaceweek events
nationwide intended to demon-
strate grassroots support for
Space Station Freedom and other
U.S. space projects.
'This year's Spaceweek obser-
vance should focus public atten-
tion on programs like the Space
Station, which already represents
over $1 billion to Florida's econo-
my," said Florida Congressman
Jim Bacchus, a member of the

WANTED
Good Used Stove
229-6961
TFC 7/9/92


House of Representatives Com-
mittee on Science, Space and
Technology. "For programs like
the Space Station to survive in
this extremely tight economy, citi-
zens must realize the benefits of a
robust space program, and ex-
press their views to their repre-
sentatives in government."
Spaceweek is actually a nine
day period which coincides with
Apollo 11's historic launch from
Kennedy Space Center on July
16, through the lunar module's
landing on the moon on July 20,
and ending with the splashdown
of the re-entry capsule on July


24. Florida's Governor and Cabi-
net signed a resolution in 1989
officially designating "Florida
Spaceweek" and encouraging its
celebration statewide through
space-related educational events
and activities.
The Spaceport Florida Au-
thority was created by the Gov-
ernor and Legislature to encour-
age statewide space-related
economic and educational devel-
opment. For more Information
about this year's Spaceweek ac-
tivities or the Spaceport Florida
Authority, contact Edward Elle-
good at (407) 868-6983.

Florida has 8,246 miles of ti-
dal coastline, 1,711 miles of riv-
ers, and streams, and 3,000,000
acres of lakes and impound-
ments. Florida has been one of
the nation's greatest boating capi-
tals. No matter where you travel
in this state, a navigable water-
way is within easy reach.
The Florida Marine Patrol
and Florida Game and Fresh Wa-
ter Fish Commission have real-
ized their responsibility for pro-
moting boating safety. Both
agencies conduct boating safety
inspections and now the Florida
Game and Fresh Water Fish Com-
mission offers a FREE "Florida
Boating Basics" course. This
course is taught by certified Flori-
'da Game and Fresh Water Fish
Commission auxiliary officers
who volunteer their time and ser-
vices.
BASIC COURSE
This course will be offered at
Port St. Joe High School on July
20, 21, and 23, Monday, Tues-
day, and Thursday evening from
7:00 to 10:00 p.m. in the Student
Activity Room #401.
The class size will be limit-
ed to 25 participants.
By taking this course you will
improve your boating skills, be-
come familiar with standard rules
of the road, equipment, require-
ments and develop a positive atti-
tude toward safety and the water.
Upon completion of this eight-
hour course, you will receive a
wallet size and an 8.5 inch by 10
inch certificate in the mail from
Florida Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission.
For any additional informa-
tion, call Pallas Gandy at the Ap-
alachicola Reserve (904) 653-
8063, or Port St. Joe High School


(904) 229-8251.
As more boats cruise Flori-
da's waterways, safe boating be-
comes increasingly important in
prevention of accidents, injury


and death. It is your responsibili-
ty as a boater to know and ob-
serve the boating laws that were
passed to protect you and your
family.

TEETHING


When your baby was born,
he most likely smiled a gummy,
all pink smile, But under those
gums was a mouthful of devel-
oping primary teeth (20 to be ex-
act) ready to erupt through the
gums.
Teething usually begins
somewhere between the sixth
and eighth month starting with
the two lower central teeth fol-
!c'."Rd by the two upper central
ones. These are sometimes
called "milk teeth". Your baby
will be teething on and off for
the next two years by which
time all 20 of his primary teeth
should be showing.
A baby may be irritable
when teething. His gums are
sore and swollen because m.ie
tooth is trying to push its way


through. He may drool a lot be-
cause it hurts when he closes
his jaws. And he will probably
want to chew on hard things.
Give him a teething ring, a hard
biscuit, or one of those plastic
affairs that you freeze so that it's
hard and cold to baby's gums.
The action of biting is good, too,
for his jaw development. Teeth-
ing is natural. It does not cause
any illness. If baby is extra un-
comfortable, your dentist or phy-
sician can prescribe-a medicine
that numbs the gums.

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

Sun Takes Its Toll

On Your Bodies...


Florida's summer sunshine
lures people outdoors for many
recreational and other activities,
and may be especially alluring to
those seeking a tan. But the costs
of a bronzed body are growing
steeper in terms of health risks.
Despite consumers spending -
approximately $390 million on
suntan lotions and products an-
nually, the number of skin cancer
cases has increased 93 percent
nationwide since 1980, according
to the U.S. Food and Drug Ad-
ministration (FDA). Florida ranks
among the highest in number of
skin cancer-related deaths.
Skin cancers and 6ther sunrin
related health hazards are becom-
ing more prevalent in all age
groups because of prolonged ex-
posure to the sun's damaging
rays, the FDA says.
As marketers provide a wide
variety of products some of
questionable value, according to
the FDA consumers are urged
to closely examine product labels
and choose products wisely. Safe-
ty and protection should be of
paramount importance.
Marketers offer skin-care
products with sunscreens that
contain sun protection factors
(SPF's) ranging from SPF 2 to SPF
50. SPF's are a measure of how
long a person can stay in the sun
before burning. Higher SPF's af-
ford the best protection.
The SPF in sunscreens ab-
sorb the sun's rays before they
penetrate the skin. Marketers of-
fer sunscreens in lotions that
don't feel oily and products that
"tan" without exposure to the
sun. Some products contain in-
gredients, such as Paba, that ab-
sorb the sun's dangerous ultravi-
olet rays, but may cause allergic
skin reaction. Other products
contain zinc-oxide that reflect ul-
traviolet radiation.
Companies use various test-


ing standards to determine SPF's,
and not all sunscreens contain
ingredients that protect against
the sun's ultraviolet-A rays (UVA).
The UVA rays don't produce an
immediate burn, but penetrate
more deeply into the skin, caus-
ing long-term damage. ', e
SSunglasses with adequate
lens tinting can help prevent the
sun's rays from damaging the
eyes. Exposure to the sun with-
out eye protection can lead to cat-
aracts and other vision problems.
Consumers should purchase eye-
Wear that has protective tinting;
!f.shien, should, not be the pri-
mary consideration. Consumers
who require prescription eyewear
should check with their eye-care
professional before buying' any
protective eyewear.
When purchasing skin prod-
ucts or eyewear, consumers
should check the protective value
of the products and note be
swayed by exotic sounding ingre-
dients or unsubstantiated claims.

GCARC Meets
Tonight at 5 pm
There will be a meeting of the
general membership of the Gulf
County Association for Retarded
Citizens on Thursday, July 16 at
5:00 p.m. The meeting will be
held at the ARC office located at
200 Peters Street, Port St. Joe.
One of the purposes of this meet-
ing will be the selection of a nomi-
nating committee that will be re-
sponsible for selecting a slate of
Directors and Officers for the up-
coming year. This slate will be
presented to the Gulf ARC mem-
bership for its approval during
the annual meeting to be held in
October. Other items of discus-
sion may include fund raising
and awareness activities.

Over 10,000 Loggerhead Turtles Nest In Florida Each Summer


It is very difficult to disturb a turtle once the egg laying process has
begun. As. they climb onto the beach, however, flashes of light, such as
camera flashes, flashlights, or even the glow from a match can easily
frighten them. Once frightened, they will turn back into the water and
abandon the idea of nesting, waiting a few hours or 1 or 2 nights before
they will try again.

Loggerhead Turtle


Many Floridians scan the
beaches during the summer
months, hoping to catch a
glimpse of a sea turtle laying
eggs. Witnessing a 250+ pound
Loggerhead digging a safe haven
for her eggs is truly a memorable
experience and an opportunity
not to be missed.
Most of Florida's sea turtle
nests are found on the east coast,
with a large number occurring
from Canaveral National Sea-
shore to Sebastian Inlet. Over
10,000 Loggerhead nests are re-
corded in this area each year,
making it the largest sea turtle
nesting concentration in North
America.
Female turtles usually lay
several clutches of eggs within a
season. and may nest every two
to., three, years.' It Is hot -uncom-
mon for a female turtle to return
year after year to the same area
of beach from where she was
hatched to lay her own eggs.
Nest building is an exhaust-
ing process for the female turtle.
The nest consists of a "body pit"
dug with the powerful fore flip-
pers, and a hole to receive her
eggs. The nest cavity is dug in the
sand with the dexterous and pow-
erful hind flippers, alternating
them as she digs. After the hole is
dug. the female starts to deposit
her eggs, up to 120 for the Log-
gerhead. She usually lays two or
three eggs at a time, pausing in
betW'eferto Test. -. .
It is common to see a turtle.
shedding "tears" during the egg.
laying process. In actuality, these
secretions are .th6 turtle's way of
eriontinuously eliminating excess
salt from the body and, while on
land, keeping sand out of the
eyes.
It.is very difficult to disturb a
turtle once the egglaying process
has begun. As they climb onto
the beach, however, flashes of
light, such as camera flashes,
flashlights, or even the glow from
a match can easily frighten them.
Once frightened, they' will turn
back into the water and abandon
* the idea of nesting, waiting a few
hours or 1 or 2 nights before they
will try again.
The clutch of eggs will incu-
bate in the sand for approximate-
ly 60 days if it is not disturbed.
Predators, such as racoons and
ghost crabs, are the most com-
mon cause of nest. destruction.
Beach erosion and flooding also
take a toll.
Once the hatchlings have
survived the incubation period
and are ready to leave the nest
they become very active. The
movement fibm the first' few
hatchlings 'stimulates ,the others
to work theirway 'to the surface
by thrashing around. If a hatch-
ling were to make it to the surface
alone .an unlikely event its
chances of survival would be
slim.
The turtles usually hatch at
night, when the temperature is
cooler. It has not been proven
how the hatchlings are able to
find the ocean, but most studies
show that they are attracted to an
area of the horizon that is the
brightest and most open. It is vi-
tally important to keep artificial
beachside lighting turned off dur-
ing nesting season and also dur-
ing hatching time because the
hatchlings easily become diso-
riented and may head towards
homes and highways.
Sea turtles do not depend on
social Interaction with other ani-
9; mals, except during mating or in
the' case of the mass nesting of
the Ridley turtles, because they
are basically solitary creatures.


They do not require parental at-
tention when they are young, and
the female has no maternal in-
stincts once the eggs are deposit-
ed.
Sea turtles spend most of
their life under water even though
they must breathe air to survive.
They usually stay submerged for
four to five minutes before com-
ing up for air. After comingto to the
surface and taking in a few
breaths, the large turtles are able
to stay submerged by delivering
abundant oxygen to all the tis-
sues of the body. The rate of oxy-
gen consumption directly de-
pends on the activity level of the
turtle and the stress to which it is
exposed. Consequently, sea tur-
tles will drown quickly when en-
tangled in.a shrimp trawling net.
Shrimp trawls, fishing gear,
lines, and nets cause over 11,000
sea turtle deaths each year in the
Gulf of Mexico and southeast At-
,lantic according to the Center for
Marine Conservation in Washing-
ton, D.C. Florida accounts for the
highest number of dead or in-
jured turtles in the entire nation.
The Turtle Excluder Device (TED)
is an addition to the shrimping
net that allows objects larger
than shrimp to pass out of the
trawl uninjured by way of a trap
door. The TED, although strongly
opposed by shrimpers, became
part of required shrimping equip-
ment in 1989, TED's have also
protected other species, such as
crabs, fish and lobster, that
would have normally been tossed
out as waste by fishermen. Dis-
carded non-degradable drift-nets,
fishing line and traps are respon-
sible for the deaths of many sea
turtles and other marine life due
to entanglement or ingestion of
these synthetic materials.
Boats and jet skis pose an-
other danger to the ocean dwell-
ing turtle. Many sea turtles have
been found dead with propeller
wounds they have received when
floating or swimming near the
surface. Noise from water activi-
ties has also been proven to be
extremely disruptive to the tur-
tle's mating behavior and choice
of nesting sites.
The Hawksbill, Green (Florida
population only), Leatherback
and Kemp's Ridley turtles, all
found in Florida, are listed as en-
dangered species under the feder-
al. Endangered Species Act. The
Center for Marine Conservation
(813/895-2188), Sea Turtle Pres-
ervation Society (407/676-1701)
and the Caribbean Conservation
Corporation (904/373-6411) all
work very hard to protect Flori-
da's magnificent sea turtles. You
may contact any one of these or-
ganizations to obtain more infor-
mation or to find out how you can
participate in guided summer tur-
tle walks. By joining the walks led
by experienced guides, your trip
will be more pleasurable and edu-
cational.
If you happen to see a turtle
nesting don't forget to keep noise
at a minimum. Don't Use a came-
ra flash or flashlight during the
turtle's nesting experience. Re-
member, it is illegal to touch the
adult female, eggs, or hatchlings.
During nesting season it is
important to keep dogs on a leash
and discourage them from dig-
ging near nesting areas. Avoid us-
ing motorized vehicles along the
dunes where the turtles nest. If
you live on or near the beach
check with your county or city re-
garding lighting regulations. If
there are none, take steps to min-
imize outdoor lighting anyway.

It's Hot Outside,


But Don't Forget


Garden 1
Summer is a great time to en-
joy things like hiking and camp-
ing. But, before you go tromping
off into beckoning woods, you
should familiarize yourself with
some of the more common poi-
sonous plants. A little prepara-
tion could save you days of un-
comfortable after effects,
resulting from contact with such
noxious weeds.
Now is a good time to be dis-
cussing poisonous plants, be-
cause the sap of these leafy ene-
mies is most abundant during
the summer. It's usually the sap
which causes the problems. Poi-
sonous plants can be divided into
two groups, those which cause
skin irritation, and those which
cause internal distress, and in
rare cases, even death.
Many factors influence the
poisonous nature of a particular
kind of plant The poison may be
dispersed throughout a plant, or
it may be localized in a specific
plant part, such as the roots, ber-
ries, or seeds. The amount of poi-
son in a plant may vary even
among plants of the same species
depending on the time year,
weather condition, and the soil.
Reaction varies among people, de-
-ding on their age, health, and
'tivity to the poison.
!ow, I'll describe three of the
common poisonous plants
;on ivy, poison oak, and poi-
sumac.
Poison ivy may have a variety
of I af shapes. But, one identify-
ing -ature remains constant -
the leaves always come in threes,


Upkeep
with two of them directly opposite
each other. White waxy flowers
may be found on smaller branch-
es. These sometimes stay on the
plant even after the leaves have
fallen. Poison ivy commonly
grows as a vine, climbing into
trees, over fences, and up the
sides of walls. However, in open
fields, poison ivy may look like a
shrub.
Poison oak usually has the
appearance of a low-growing
shrub. As the name implies, the
slender, upright branches bear
leaflets which resemble oak
leaves. Poison oak also grows in
trees, like poison ivy. Usually, the
undersides of the leaves are light-,
er in color, because they're cov-
ered with fine hairs.
Poison sumac grows as a
woods shrub, or small tree. It
never has a vine-like appearance
of many other poisonous plants.
Poison sumac is often found near
swamps, and ranges from five or
six feet to as much as 25 feet in
height. The leaves are divided
into seven to 13 leaflets that grow
in pairs. A single leaflet is found
at the end of each stem. In the
spring, the leaves are bright
orange and velvety in texture.
Later, in the summer, the upper
leaves become dark green and
glossy, while the lower leaves
turn a paler green.
These are Florida's most com-
mon poisonous plants. But, there
are many more that you should
learn to recognize and avoid. It's
especially important to keep

Increasing

Awareness

on Issues of

Environment
Increasing Americans' aware-
ness of environmental issues can
have a significant impact on our
future. Below are a few thought-
provoking statistics:
*70 percent of America's
20,000 landfills closed between
1978 and 1988. By 1993, another
2,000 are expected to close.
*In a lifetime, the average
American will throw away 600
times his or her adult weight in
garbage. If you add it up, this
means that a 150-pounds adult
will leave a legacy of 900,000
pounds of trash for his or her
children.
*We save enough energy by
recycling one aluminum can to
run a TV set for three hours.
*Americans throw away
enough aluminum every three
months to rebuild our entire com-
mercial air fleet
*At least 40 percent of the na-
tional waste stream is paper,
that's about 88 million tons per
year. Americans recycle between
25-30 percent of their ipaper
(which can be recycled up to sev-
en times).
*Americans discard four mil-
lion tons of office paper every
year enough to build a 12-foot-
high wall of paper from New York
to California.
*Every year, Americans use
more than 25 billion polystyrene
foam cups which can be recycled
into new plastic products or other
containers.

GCARC to Meet
Next Thursday
There will be a meeting of the
general membership of the Gulf
County Association for Retarded
Citizens on Thursday, July 16 at
5:00 p.m. The meeting will be
held at the ARC office located at
200 Peters Street, Port St. Joe.
One of the purposes of this meet-
ing will be the selection of a nomi-
nating committee that will be re-
sponsible for selecting a slate of
Directors and Officers for the up-
coming year. This slate will be
presented to the Gulf ARC mem-
bership for its approval during
the annual meeting to be held in
October. Other items of discus-
sion may include fund raising
and awareness activities.
All members are urged to at-
tend.

Thank You
I would like to take this op-
portunity to thank Gulf Coast
Electric Cooperative, Ann Suber,
and the Wewahitchka Volunteer
Fire Department for sponsoring
me on my recent trip to Washing-
ton, D.C. It was truly a learning,

New bow hunting regulations,
based on recommendations by
the Florida Bow Hunters Council,
restrict or prohibit the use of
some high technology devices.
Simple sights or even lighted
sights or other aiming devices are
not illegal during archery season
unless they have the ability to
compute the range to the target
electronically. Laser sights also
are prohibited during archery
season. Such devices may be
used during general gun season,
however.
Broadheads used for taking
deer, wild hogs or turkeys must
have at least two sharpened steel
edges with a fixed minimum
width of 7/8 of an inch. Broad-
"heads may not have any pivoting
blades.
L. Ross Morrell, of the Com-
mission's executive director's of-
fice, said while research Indicates
that new technology applied to
primitive weapons appears to
have had little or no effect on
hunter success, the Florida Bow
Hunters Council felt that things
like laser sights and aiming devic-
es with electronic computation
capabilities, go against the spirit
of bowhunting.
'The reason for prohibiting
these devices during archery sea-
son is to maintain the aesthetic
nature of the sport as perceived
by most bowhunters," he said.
On the other hand, the rea-
son for prohibiting broadheads
with moveable blades is the un-
proven reliability of such devices.
"Malfunctions could cause ir-
regular arrow flight and unneces-
sary wounding of game," Morrell
said.

The City of Port St. Joe reserves the right to
accept any or all bids, waive any formalities, and
to choose the bid deemed best to meet the City's

The Star

' Your Hometown
Newspaper!


One type ot arrow currently
on the market has a shaft that
'enables the broadhead to rotate.
during flight. That device is legal
during archery season or general
gun season since it involves a ro-
tating shaft rather than a pivoting
blade.
All bows used to take game in


,f/!


Florida must have a minimum
draw weight of 35 pounds. Most
bows have the draw weight
stamped onto them by the manu-
facturers.
Archers with questions about -
the new regulations should con-
tact the Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission.
