Gilbert P. (Gil) Williams

Williams Named President

of First Union Nat'l. Bank


First Union National Bank of
Florida has named Gilbert P. Wil-
liams as president of the Port St.
Joe branch office.
Williams brings with him 15
years of banking experience. He
joined First'Union in April 1992
after the acquisition of Security
First in Daytona Beach where he
was the branch manager. Wil-
liams also worked for the Com-
merce National Bank in Lexing-
ton, Kentucky, as a commercial
loan officer.
He received a bachelor degree
from the Transylvania University
in Lexington. Active in the com-
munity, Williams has been a
member of the Kiwanis Club, Op-
eration Read and The United
Way.
Joining him is his wife, Julie
and children, Seth, 9 and Audra,
7.
First Union National Bank of
Florida, headquartered in Jack-
sonville, is a subsidiary of Char-
lotte, North Carolina-based First
Union Corporation which as of
March 31, 1992, had assets of
$46.1 billion and operated 1018
banking offices in Florida, Geor-
*/ gia, North Carolina, South Caroli-


na and Tennessee and 207 non-
banking offices in 36 states.


bushes and generally improving the ap-
pearance of the grounds.
Also scheduled for repair is the roof
section of the building. The aggregate dec-
orative slabs on the second story will be
re-caulked to stop leaking and the roof on
the library building, also on the court-
house grounds, will be replaced with a dif-
ferent type roof to prevent leakage.
When the work is finished, the build-
ing should be in good shape and have a
nice appearance.


Question Will
After emotional discussions
at the last meeting of the Gulf
County Commission, the Board
agreed on a 3-2 vote Tuesday
night, to give the people an op-
portunity to express themselves
on the matter of electing Commis-
sioners on a county-wide vote
rather than by district alone.
Chairman ,Billy Traylor first
suggested the voting plan change
a month ago, when he vowed to
make the motion to place the
question on. the ballot, saying, "It
will give us better County govern-
ment if each county commission-
er is responsible to every voter in
the county, and not just a few."
He described Gulf County
government as "Five separate
county governments, rather than
one," under the single member
district. The Chairman added,
"Under no circumstances would I
favor placing the minority mem-
ber in jeopardy. A member of the
minority race should be guaran-
teed membership on the Board."
Traylor was true to his word,
Tuesday night, as he made the
simple motion to place the matter
on the November, reading, "Do
you support county-wide voting
for your County Commission? Yes
or No."
When it came down to draw-
ing lines on the matter, Commis-
sioner Nathan Peters, who vehe-
mently opposed the matter two
weeks ago, voted "No". Commis-
sioner Al Ray joined Peters. At the


Be On November Election Ballot


last meeting, Ray had qualified
his vote, by saying, '"The courts
have decided the matter. I think
it would be an exercise in futility
to think we could change it".
Commissioners Charles Fort-
ner and Ed Creamer joined Chair-
man Traylor in providing a major-
ity to pass the measure.
GET THE MONEY
After several months of nego-
tiations and discussions, Com-
missioners Nathan Peters, Al Ray
and Ed Creamer banded together
to give the City of Port St. Joe
$27,000 from a recycling program
grant in order to purchase recy-
cling equipment with.
But it wasn't without a strug-
gle.
Chairman Billy Traylor want-
ed, and received approval of the
Board, to have the County solid
waste actions critiqued by solid
waste experts and make recom-
mendations as to how the County
could best cope with the problem
and what they could reasonably
do to comply with coming state
requirements.
"I don't know what is the
best, most economical, program
to get into and I don't think you
do either," Traylor said.
Frank Healy, city Public
Works Superintendent, said, "We
do have a plan, we just need help
in initiating it." Healy went on to
say, the City has been evolving a
plan since February. "It was built
around an agreement with you to

pick up the trailers of segregated
products after we filled them up.
You stopped doing that and we
are filling up everything."
Traylor said there was no
market for the recycled materials
[with the exception of waste paper
and chips of wood, which are go-
ing to St. Joe Forest Products
Company] so they had quit pick-
ing up the loaded trailers.
Healy countered with, "Those
trailers take a specially-built
truck to handle and you have the
only truck around here. You have
stopped moving our chips to the
paper mill, causing us problems."
Traylor immediately gave or-
ders to begin hauling the chips to
the mill as soon as the trailers
were filled.
Discussions back and forth
about who was responsible for
what, finally came to a conclu-
sion that both governments were
responsible for handling the recy-
clables in a responsible manner.
Traylor remarked, 'That's why I
want suggestions about what
tasks are feasible for both the
County and City to assume, made
by experts." The Chairman said
he would be attending a recycling
meeting in Tampa next week and
would be contacting a firm to
come study Gulf County's prob-
lem.
'We should have some sug-
gestions and guidance in just a
couple of weeks," he remarked. ,
In the meantime, Port St. Joe
Commissioner Charles Tharpe
and Public Works Superintendent
Frank Hqaly had secured the des-
ignation of $27,000 for recycling,

in Tallahassee. "We receive it as a

Two Qualify
for Expiring
Wewa Positions
The City of Wewahitchka had
an election planned for Septem-
ber 1, but will evidently have to
call it off because nobody is com-
ing.
As late as Wednesday noon,
none of the candidates had oppo-
sition.
Up for election are two seats
on the City Commission. Qualify-
ing to be candidates for the two
posts ended yesterday [Wednes-
day] at the close of the business
day. Only Tony Justice, Incum-
bent has qualified for re-election
in Group Three and Eric H. Pitts,
has qualified for election to the
Group Four post.
Justice won election to his
position last year, for a one year
tenure to complete a term left va-
cant by resignation. He is trying,
now. for a full three year term as
a Commissioner.
Pitts is a newcomer to Wewa-
hitchka politics and is seeking
the Group Four post now held by
Thomas McDaniell. McDaniell
had. not qualified to seek re-
election at press time, Wednesday
at noon.

Changes B(
It's time to choose your partner for
handling your long distance telephone
calls, Lynda Bordelon, Internal Affairs
Manager for St. Joseph Telephone and
Telegraph Company said in a presenta-
tion to the Rotary Club last Thursday.
"Any call you make which must pre-
ceded by an "0" or a "1", must have a pre-
determined carrier to handle the long dis-
tance part of the call," Bordelon said.
'This selection must be in effect by No-
vember 2 and you are going to be asked
to make it in a special ballot you will re-
ceive in the mail on August 7, or a few
days thereafter," she said.
SELECTION MANDATED BY FEDS
Selection of your personal long dis-
tance carrier must be made, on rules by
the Federal Communications Commis-
sion. It is not a choice, except for whom
you wish to have as your carrier.
The telephone company executive
said that currently there are 184 long dis-


being Made In
tance carriers operating in Florida. "We
had to send them all an invitation to
come into Port St. Joe and seven of them
accepted. So you will be getting informa-
tion from all of them to subscribe to their
services; then you must either accept the
offer of one company or mark the ballot
St. Joseph sends you. If you make no se-
lection from either the information the
long distance firms send you or from our
ballot, we will assign your name to a com-
pany as a customer. Our customers will
be doled out among the carriers on a per-
centage basis. If 50% of our customers
choose AT&T, then 50% of those who
don't express a preference will be as-
signed to AT&T and doled out among the
various carriers in that manner."
Bordelon said each customer in their
company will be sent two ballots. One will
arrive on August 7 and if that one isn't re-
turned another will be sent about two
weeks later. If the second one isn't an-
swered either, you will be assigned to one


Long Dista
of the carriers coming into the St. Joseph
system .
Of course, the chosen carrier will
handle only calls which are preceded by a
"1" or an "0". The speaker said it was ille-
gal for her or any employee of the St. Jo-
seph Company to advise you on which
carrier to select.
SELLING JOB
During the weeks ahead, all of the
long distance carriers will contact every
customer on the St. Joseph system solic-
iting their business. All the firms will op-
erate out of the St. Joseph central head-
quarters, just as has been the method in
the past. Nothing will change, except that
you must select a long distance carrier, or
have one selected for you.
Billing will more than likely continue
as in the past, with all telephone bills
originating in St. Joe's central billing
point. They will collect all phone charges
and remit the carrier's share to them. No-


ice Service
body will be inconvenienced except St. Jo-
seph Telephone and Telegraph Company.
Although the speaker didn't advise
her audience of the fact, St. Joe Com-
munications, a subsidiary of St. Joseph
Telephone, will be one of the firms con-
tacting you by mail in the next few days,
offering their services as your long dis-
tance carrier.
A SECOND CHANGE COMING
A second change coming, but not re-
lated to the long distance change, has to
do with area code numbers.
Effective October 4, those calling "0"
or "I1" numbers must also dial the area
code number with the number called,
Mrs. Bordelon told her listeners.
"No longer will you be able to call a
number in your area code zone, by dial-
ing "0" or "1" and the number being
called," she said. "It will be necessary to
dial the area code number with all long
distance numbers called, regardless of
where it is," she continued.

THE STAR


It's Still Wrong

A lot has happened since Vice President Dan Quayle advocat-
ed a return to family values accepted by a genteel society. Vice-
President Quayle doesn't seem to be so far off-base today and
the media commentators, comedians and columnists have had
trying to make Quayle appear to be stupid boomerang back in
their face.
Now, everybody is getting on the Family Values bandwagon.
Even the Democratic presidential campaign is trying to adopt
the position as one of their very own. All of this tends to make
Mr. Quayle's remarks appear to be right on target. They give cre-
dence to the wave of protests over television shows which claim
they are fostering values and life-styles which aren't accepted by
the larger portion of the American public.
In an America of 20 years ago, a song writer or a poet
wouldn't have thought of coming up with a piece of trash such
as the "Cop Killer" piece by Ice-T.
Also, 20 years ago, people wouldn't have been surprised
about statistics which were published in Newsweek magazine
last week. They would not have been surprised at the fact that
the majority of American people believe that adultery is wrong.
Newsweek revealed they did, as if it were some kind of big sur-
prise. Also Americans would not have been surprised 20 or 30
years ago that 45% of the people of Hollywood have no religious
affiliations and that only four percent of other people did not. It
would have been no surprise that only 20% of those in Holly-
wood believe Homosexual acts are wrong and that 76% of every-
one else believed they were. It also seemed to be some sort of
great surprise that 97% of Hollywood believe in a woman's right
to abortion. But, 59% of everyone else thought abortion was
wrong.
It seemed to be such surprising news to Newsweek that
American people have not changed their values. They still be-
lieve in the Bible and God, even though our courts try to erase
all references to God from our public meetings and school func-
tions. In this age of people thinking their main mission in life is
in teaching teen-agers how to have sex and not get pregnant or
contract venereal diseases, the great majority--85%0--still believe
sex outside marriage is adultery and they oppose it.
It seems as if the media, Hollywood and Television are being
given credit for trying to change our values. But, a .speech by
Vice-President Dan Quayle started an investigation of America's
values which proved they weren't succeeding in their goals and
revealed that, instead, Americans didn't appreciate their trying
So, if you think your going against what has been declared a
normal lifestyle in this nation since it was founded is going to
gain you any support for you to be free to express yourself, don't
you believe it, If that freedom tramples on someone's freedom to
live a decent moral life in acceptable surroundings.



Counting Pennies

Raw figures show the Gulf County School Board budget will
be increased this year by $236,000. That's the total figure above
the total for last year. It doesn't seem to be very much and prob-
ably won't draw any criticism: grumbling, maybe; criticism, no.
STrue, in a budget of $10 million, 236,000 isn't very much
and It isn't for any of us to say who doesn't understand the
School budget and its in's and out's, whether it is too much or
not enough. We don't suppose anybody keeps as watchful an eye
on any budget as they do the school expenditures, however.
The State of Florida has control over much of the budget. The
federal government has control over much of it. Gulf County tax-
payers account for $3,659,000 of that $10.5 million budget but
you can bet we don't have one-third of the say-so about how it is
spent. That's what makes it so tricky to oppose or approve.
We just have to trust our school people to be frugal, yet not
be chinchy about the different needs when they are spending
that money.
The County is beginning the process of preparation of their
budget for the new year and have determined that they will lop a
full mill from the final financial plan.
There is going to be a lot of pressure on them to spend be-
yond that mill of reduction. Possibly there was pressure on the
School Board, too, but more of their budget is decided for them
than with the, County budget. So, it should be interesting to
watch the process and see it the determination which seems so
strong now, remains as strong under the considerable pressure
which can be brought to bear. Most of that pressure comes from
legitimate sources which have programs needed by at least most
of the population. There aren't very many "turkeys" which come
before them.

KESLEY
COLBERT


I'm not too swift on the up-
take. There's a whole lot. of things
that just kind'a scoot right over
my head. So when, a month or
two ago, both of my boys signed
up to go on a youth choir trip, I
don't think a thing about it. Well,


Home Alone


I did sort'a wonder why they
wanted Josh on a choir trip. May-
' be they're not going to sing......
Someone asked me at
church, I think it was Janice Cox,
what Cathy and I were going to
do, "while the boys are away."
"I dunno, I guess we'll follow
our usual summer routine, I'll go
to work and Cathy will sleep all
day."
I didn't give it any more
thought until a few days before
they left. "Kes, you and Cathy are
sure going to have a lot of peace
and quiet with the boys gone."
'Well, uh-"


'Ya'll going to take a trip or
something?"
"Well, uh-"
"How long has it been since
it's just been the two of you?"
I broke and ran for the
house.
"Cathy, I've been thinking -"
I wish she wouldn't roll her eyes
up like that every time I come
home with another good idea "-
it's going to be great around here
without the boys. Just think how
quiet it's going to be! Hey, we
won't have to watch wrestling on
TV. We're going to go a whole
week without having to hear that,

Is There Still An Operator Lurking Behind Those Electronics?


REMEMBER, BACK DURING
the pre-historic days of the tele-
phone when you could pick up
the phone and say, "Mrs. Holli-
day" or "Mrs. Suber" "Mrs. Single-
tary" or "Mrs. Chason", please get
me So-and-so on the phone," and
it would be done in a flash.
Or, you could ask the same
three ladies to get you John Doe
in Jacksonville, hang up your
phone and go about your busi-
ness and when they had them on
the line, they would call you.
That was service!
, We had phone numbers back
then. I remember The Star's num-
ber was 51. We used the same
handset' from 1937 until the
change to the "227" and "229"
dial prefix, which wasn't all that
long ago. Here in Port St Joe,
when we first went dial, we had a
prefix of "BAll" plus four digits. I
don't remember what The Star's
number during the "BAll" days,
but we still had good service and
dependability.


The repair "squad" was made
up of two pick-up trucks, T. S.
Singletary, Howard McKinnon,
and Edgar Strange. I didn't pay
much attention at the time, but'
the phone. system either didn't
i break down, the men were over-
worked or if it broke down, it just
waited until they could get it
fixed. I kinda think it didn't break
down very often.

THAT WAS THEN, and this
is 'now. Times have changed.
There is now a small army run-
ning our phone system which is
spread out over half of the Florida
Panhandle.


I'll bet Howard McKinnon, T.
S. Singletary or Edgar Strange
wouldn't recognize the company,
now. And, if Joe Sharit, former
vice-president in charge of the
phone company [and also vice-
president in charge of the rail-
road, back then] was to see the,
number of phone company vehi-
cles running around, now, he'd
have an economy fit!
Since I have been here, back
in November of 1952, the phone
company has gone dial [with the
"BAll" prefix] changed to seven
digit dial, then to direct dial,
touch-tone phones, computer
phone sets, which will redial,


store frequently called numbers,
serve as an intercom, party call-
ing, conference calling, micro-
wave transmission, then fiber op-
tic transmission, from mechani-
cal switching stations to electron-
ic switching. From hand billing,
to computer figuring of the bill
and machines which prepare and
Send your bill to you.
I wonder if there is still an
operator hiding in among all
those electronic gadgets which
complete and bill your call?

WITH EVERY CHANGE
which was made, you would in-
variably .get a grumble of resis-
tance and people questioning the
sanity of the phone company for
making a change. "It already
'worked as well as it possible
could!" would be the cry of exas-
peration.
But, giving the company the
benefit of the doubt, back in the
days when the system was "as
good as it can get," you could not


pick up the phone, dial a phone
in Hong Kong and expect to get it
right away. In fact, you might
have to wait a half a day or so for
the call to go through. If the cir-
cuits were busy, the wait may be
a day or two.
Pick up your phone and dial
Hong Kong now. Chances are
your call will go through as
quickly as if you were dialing
someone next door.
Of course, I have never called
Hong Kong, nor do I ever expect
to; but, if I wanted to, I could get
through in a matter of seconds.
Other improvements have
come along,, whether they are
good or bad. Transmission is now
clear as a bell over the modern fi-
ber-optics. No matter what the
distance, the voice is clear. Alex-
ander Graham Bell didn't have it
so good with his call to Mr. Wat-
son, who was in the next room.
There's drawbacks to that
one, too. No longer can you claim,
"I can't hear you," or, "There's too
much static on the line," when


you didn't want to understand
what was being said on the send-
ing end.

ALL OF THIS WAS said in
preparation to telling you there
are more changes coming in an
industry which can't seem to sit
still and relax with what they
have for a moment.
The phone company is now
going to let you select your own
personal long distance carrier, if
you choose. [See story on Page
.la.] There are seven firms out
-there bidding for your long dis-
tance service as if your business
was the business which would
make or break the company offer-
ing long distance.
Personally, I'm going to go
with St. Joe Communications.
They are. right here where I can
fuss at the vice-president when I
meet him walking in the after-
noon, if anything goes wrong. I
wouldn't give up that privilege for
anything

Why, they are practically grown.
It will do them some good to get
away from is that Laura Ram-
sey putting a suitcase in the
van?"
'Yes, she's a chaperone."
"LAURA RAMSEY, you're kid-

I'm not letting my little boys go off
with Laura Ram-"
"Hush, Laura is fine. Besides,
Alford is going."
"Alfordi Great Scot! We'll

He'll have'em all in jail by mid-

Josh gave his mother a hug.
Jesse got on the van without a

I was watching the ball game
that night sans any interrup-

'Well, I didn't figure I needed
to cook for just two of us. I
thought we might go out....."
What? She obviously didn't
understand the plan. I don't want
a noisy, expensive meal out. "Ca-

quietly, without the boys. How
about fixing us something to
eat?"
"Fix it yourself. I'm relaxing."
I ate a bowl of Trix.
"Josh, JOSH. Come here! I

Right. I forgot. It's not much

A Letter to Mr. Faircloth
Mr. Marty Faircloth, Director
Woodman of The World Summer Camp
Tallahassee, Florida
Dear Mr. Faircloth:
First of all, let me thank you for giving my son and daughter a
job working at the Woodman of The World summer camp in Talla-
hassee for the past five weeks. It was an experience they shall never
forget, nor shall my wife and I for reasons I will reveal to you later
in this letter.
After the first week of orientation for my son and daughter, I re-
alized that your.hiring them and us allowing them to become coun-
selors was one of the most fortunate blessings for them since I
started making them change their own diapers. The first thing they
said when they arrived home after that first week was, "Daddy, did
you know they don't have air conditioning at that camp in Tallahas-
see?" I answered: "No, I didn't, but I'm glad they don't because now
you'll know that I wasn't lying when I told you how hot it was at
night when I was your age. We didn't even know what air condition-
ing was."
Mr. Faircloth, ycu might have guessed that I'm a man who be-
.lieves each and every teenager should be REQUIRED to serve one
year in the military; either the Marine Corps or Army. Sailing and
flying won't get itl
The next thing they told me that made me proud was that they,
counselors and campers alike, were required to get up at "day-
break" each morning, make their beds, clean up their cabins and
then help with breakfast, eat and help clean up the kitchen and
dining rooth. A lost art to teenagers: one they lost somewhere be-
tween Tallahassee and Port St. Joe, because when they got henge
they didn't do any of that. Maybe in a later life.
There were a couple of things, however, that I want to complain
about, both of them being the other counselors at your camp. And
don't tell me I don't know what I'm talking about because almost all
of them came to our house one weekend a few days ago. As a mat-
ter of fact, the main thrust of this letter is slanted toward those
"camping-counselors" who landed like a brigade of Carpetbaggers
on our home the weekend of July 24th. I, of course, will never re-
veal their names because Bryan, Wesley, Jimmy and Daniel (Moose)
asked me not to.
Mr. Faircloth, you can't, in your wildest, imagine what that
group did to our home over the last weekend. We cooked enough
food to feed the'entire band of Indians that killed General Custer.
There was a 5 pound box of Tide used and it was the first time our
washer and dryer ran for three days without ever cutting off. I don't
remember our air conditioner or electric range being off either.
There was one bright spot: my daughter and her friend, Tara.
Tara is a lovely young lady from Wakulla who worked there too. She
was a pleasure to have in our horie and we hope she will come
back again.
But about those others. Let me tell you, Mr. Faircloth, that that
bunch, Bryan, Wesley, Jimmy and "Moose", well, if that's what the
world is going to be run by a few years from now, well, I just hope
I'm around to see it.
Mr. Faircloth, I can honestly say that I have never, and I mean
never, met a bunch of guys who were as nice, mannerly, hungry,
and polite as those guys were. We told them to make themselves at,
home and that's exactly what they did. They actually bought back
some feeling of my old college days.
Thanks again, Mr. Faircloth, for the jobs for my son and daugh-
ter. And please do me one favor. If any of those guys ask how the
Campbells are doing, tell them you don't know because we moved
to'Alaska. ,
Sincerely,
Wendell Campbell

By the third night I was going

"No, but let's put in a Dwight

OTHER BUSINESS
In other business, the Board:
-Heard from Public Works

he would have a surplus of funds
in both the Road Department and
Mosquito Control budgets this
year, but asked for permission to
spend it on a new 16-yard dump

Art Exhibition Set


to Open Sept. 28th


Last year a small committee
of Gulf County residents, working
on the premise that there was
probably a good deal of artistic
talent in Gulf County which could
be exhibited in one place and at
one time for the.,public' to enjoy,
created the 1991 St. Joseph Bay
Arts Exhibition. The Exhibition
was housed at the First Union
Bank of Port St. Joe and ran for
one week in October. When com-
mittee members asked Gulf
County artists to come forward
with their work for the display,
they were not prepared for the
overwhelming response. Over 165
artists from all over Gulf County
brought over 200 pieces, includ-
ing watercolors, oils, sculpture,
fine musical instruments, tapes-
try, dolls, photographs and much
more, all of remarkable artistic
competence. The committee re-
sponded, using their -skills to
creatively display the fine art,
and, like the committee, the view-
ing public enjoyed and appreciat-
ed the talented Gulf County art-
ists.
The 1992 St. Joseph's Bay
Art Exhibition committee is now
actively planning this year's ex-
hibit and asks all interested Gulf
County artists, amateur, profes'
sional and student alike, to plan
to display their work. All artistic
mediums will be displayed as well


as artistic crafts. This will be an
all new, fresh exhibit featuring
new work from last year's exhibi-
tors and from new exhibitors.
,The exhibit will be held ,Sep-
tember 28th through October 4th
-to coincide with the annual Arts
and Crafts Festival. Opening
night is planned for the evening
of September 28th with First Un-
ion Bank of Port St. Joe as the
site for this year's exhibit. Exhibi-
tors should be registered and
have their wares at First Union
on or before Friday, September
25th.
For more information about
the show and to register as an ex-
hibitor, contact Tamara Laine at
the Port St. Joe/Gulf County
Chamber of Commerce, P.O. Box
964, Port St. Joe, FL 32456 or
call 227-1223.
This exhibit is free to exhibi-
tors and the public and is spon-
sored by the Nelson-Plews Memo-
rial Fund for the Arts, First Union
Bank of Port St. Joe, Port St.

Commerce.

Parents need to consult more
than just a list of school supplies
before sending their children
hack to class, says the American
Optometric Association (AOA).
The checklist below tells par-
ents exactly what to look for in a
child's eye examination, a proce-
dure that is vital to success in
school because the eyes are in-
volved in almost every aspect of
learning, AOA says.
A child's vision examination
should include:
*A thorough review of the
family's and child's health histo-
ry, including facts of the child's
birth, developmental history and
general behavior. This review may
be completed before the actual
examination day.
*An examination of both the
interior and exterior of the eye to
check for signs of eye disease or
general health problems (such as
rliahetes), which may show up in
the eye.
*A test of the child's ability to
seesharply and clearly at near
and far distances.
*A test of the child's eye coor-
dination and muscle function to
be sure the eyes are working to-
gether as a team.
*A test of the child's ability to
change focus from near to far and
back again.
*Tests of the child's depth
perception and eye-hand-foot co-
ordination.
*Tests for lazy eye (amblyo-
pia), nearsightedness, farsighted-
ness, astigmatism, crossed-eyes
and color vision deficiencies.
If the child's developmental,
behavioral or health history Indi-
cates a need, the optometrist
should also perform tests to be
sure the child's visual skills are
developing as they should, AOA
says. Keeping the child's age level
in mind, these might include ob-
servation of the child's visual
abilities while building with
blocks, copying forms on paper,
or completing pictures drawn on
paper. Such tests are selected
with the child's age level in mind.
A child's eye examination
should be scheduled before the
child starts school, and followed
up with a yearly exam throughout
the school years, unless the op-
tometrist advises otherwise.

"TAX RETURNS A SPECIALTY"
(904) 229-858 \
302B Reid Avenue Port St. Joe, FL 32456
In March, 1992, the government established new tables for
withholding taxes from an employee's paycheck. Married
couples will see their after-tax paycheck increase up to
$345.00 annually, while single people will see after-tax pay go
up by as much as $172.00 annually.
IMPORTANT NOTE
Taxes themselves are not reduced therefore, many people
who normally receive a refund when filing taxes will be pay-
ing money in for 1992.
We urge you to make an appointment with our office to see if
you need to have more money withheld from your regular
paycheck!! It is much better to be safe, than to end up owing
taxes on April 15.
TFC last week of each month begin 5/28


in a friendly
atmosphere
with good
FRIENDS.

CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM


j JNew Childhood

Immunizations to


ibe Available In U.S.

By
Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

Soon there will be licensed in this country a vaccine to prevent
chickenpox. This vaccine has been used most extensively in Japan
and has been found to be very effective. Probable use in the U.S.
will be primarily for immunocompromised children (children with
AIDS or children being treated for cancers). Chickenpox in these
children can be a fatal disease.
Recently it has been recommended that all new babies born in
the country receive hepatitis vaccine. This recommendation has not
been fully implemented as yet because neither the public health nor
the private sector has seen the possibility of being able to fund the
program.
Hepatitis is not a problem in childhood. The child will usually
have a relatively unnoticeable illness that may or may not cause
him to be a little jaundiced. Why then the recommendation for the
vaccine use in children? Unfortunately, the unnoticed infection of
the liver in childhood can go on to silently destroy the liver and you
have a young or middle-aged adult with a completely non-
functioning liver who dies or has to have a liver transplant.
As previously mentioned, hepatitis is not a problem in the usu-
al childhood population. Where hepatitis has been a problem is in
homes for retarded children, and in one such home was where the
vaccine was developed and used. The use in homes for the retarded
has been very successful without any major problems for 10 to 12
years.
These new recommendations can be expected to gradually be-
come part of the usual immunization program for children and
probably will eventually become a requirement.

Why the Great

Wall of China

Was Built...

One of mankind's greatest
building achievements as im-
pressive as the Pyramids of Egypt
is the Great Wall of China.
It is 20 to 30 feet high and 15
to 25 feet wide, with 60-foot tow-
ers built every few hundred yards
along the top of the wall.
This wall, over 2,000 years
old, was equipped with openings
through which weapons could be
fired in case of an attack from the
Tartars of Mongolia.
Made of stone and brick, the
wall .extends through mountains
and valleys across China.

BEWARE OF
TOO MUCH SUN
Too much sun can turn an anticipated pleasurable
vacation into days of ceaseless pain and discomfort. With
just a little caution and a good suntan product, you can
prevent both agony and days of unsightly peeling of your
|5* skin. Expose yourself to the sun, with plenty of a good B
suntan preparation lightly patted on the skin, for a short
time to start. Then as your suntan develops take more sun
each day.
Watch out for those foggy days with the sun hidden.
-- Ultra-violet rays can filter through to give you a burn.
Protect your eyes with a pair of sunglasses, created to filter
out most of the harmful ultra-violet rays. Stop in and we
will be glad to help you select dependable protection
against the sun.

Local Men Playing In State Tourney


Two Port St. Joe young men,
Matthew Taylor and Bill Ramsey,
playing with the Quincy American
Legion Post 84 team, will partici-
pate in the State American Legion
tournament beginning next
Wednesday at Baseball City.
Baseball City is the site of
Boardwalk and Baseball, the
spring training home of the Kan-
sas City Royals, just west of
Orlando.
During the summer Post 84
has compiled a 30-19 record and
won two tournaments, the Quin-
cy Memorial Day Invitational and
the Tyndall Federal Credit Union
American Division title, and the
sub-district Western title.
This past weekend Post 84
defeated Tallahassee Baseball
Club 9-8 and Tallahassee Post 13
to advance to the championship
game in the sub-district tourna-
ment on Sunday. Tallahassee
Baseball Club eliminated Talla-
hassee Post 13 Saturday to come
back out of the loser's bracket to
face Post 84 Sunday, and defeat-
ed Post 84 14-2 forcing a play-off
game. Quincy Post 84 came from
behind 7-3 to take the champion-
ship game, 11-10.
Quincy Post '84 and Bay
County Post 66, the other sub-


district champion, will play this
Friday evening in Panama City at
7:00 for the Western area cham-
pionship. This year the Western
area hosts the state tournament
and both the district champion
and runner-up are represented at
the state tournament.
Taylor, before being sidelined
with arm surgery, compiled a 6-2
record with a 2.20 ERA. He
struck out 69 batters in 49
innings.
Ramsey, batting .310 on the
season, has been a utility player,
starting at all positions with the
exception of catcher this summer.
He has 35 RBI's, along with 15
doubles and nine of 11 stolen
bases. Currently he is the start-
ing first baseman for the Legion
team.
The young men, both 1991
graduates of Port St. Joe High
School played collegiate baseball
during the past year. Taylor
played at Wake Forest University
in North Carolina where he was a
relief pitcher. He has transferred
and signed a scholarship with
George Wallace Jr. College in
Dothan, Alabama for his sopho-
more year, where he hopes to
make an immediate contribution
to the program.


Ramsey played with Tallahas-
see Community College as a
shortstop in the fall of 1991 and
at third base in the spring '92
season. In their first year of com-
petition the Eagles finished third


in their nine team conference
behind perennially strong Gulf
Coast and Chipola. The Eagles
expect to be a contender for the
Conference title in the '92-'93
season.

Community Forum


Set In Port St. Joe
"Growing Up At Risk" will be the topic of a Community Forum to be
held in Port St. Joe at 7:30 p.m. local time on August 6. Citizens of Port
St. Joe are invited to attend. This forum, to be held in the Commons Area
of Port St. Joe High School, is part of a Public Policy Institute taking
place at Gulf Coast Community College August 5-7.
During the forum, participants will discuss the serious problems our
young people encounter, their causes and possible ways to meet prob-
lems including crime, poverty, teen pregnancy, drugs, unemployment,
family conflicts and dropping out of high school.
Participants will then. examine four different approaches to solving
the crisis of youth: 1) teaching values so that youth can make more effec-

*Changed your mind? You can
remove old bumper stickers by
softening the adhesive with a
blow dryer. Orb saturate the
sticker with liquid detergent or
a petroleum solvent and scrub
with a plastic ice scraper.
*Continuing safety research in-
dicates that running lights -
headlights used in daytime, too
cut auto crashes. In Cana-
da, all models from 1990 on
must have interlocks that turn
lights on with the ignition. .
*Uneven tire wear and poor
handling may be signals that
wheels are out of alignment.
An experienced technician can
determine what's wrong and
how to fix it. If parts are worn,
they may need to be replaced.
*Smart tip for women drivers:
before you buckler your seat
belt, catch it through the handle
of your handbag. Result: Identi-
fication in case of accident, and
protection against purse
snatchers.
*There's an easy way to in-
crease the apparent brightness
of your headlights, safety ex-
perts remind us. Just be sure
to wipe them clean every time
you stop for gas, more often in
sloppy weather.

next week. Edward A. O'Connor,
Jr., executive director of the
Spaceport Authority, will describe
to the NCSL's- Transportation
Committee the growing role of
state governments in assisting
our nation's commercial, civil,
and military space programs.
Following the discussion of
state-sponsored space initiatives,
the Transportation Committee
will consider a resolution to en-
courage a coordinated federal/
state approach to supporting our
nation's commercial space indus-
try. Options under consideration
include the creation of a grant
program for space transportation
infrastructure; establishing a fed-
eral tax exemption for spaceport
financing; transferral of surplus
federal assets for commercial use;
and others.
"Federal laws and policies
now recognize and encourage
state government participation .in
our nation's space programs,"
said Florida Representative Char-
lie Roberts, a member of the
Spaceport Authority's Board of
Supervisors. "Other states believe
that Florida's Legislature has
shown great vision in creating an
organization like the Spaceport
Authority. Several of them are
moving in similar directions to
maximize the competitiveness of
their aerospace industries."
Other participants in the
space industry.discussion will in-
clude Alaska Representative Tom
Moyer who -recently sponsored
state legislation which created
the Alaska Aerospace Develop-
ment Corporation (an agency very
similar to;, the Spaceport Florida
Authority)! arid, Dick Scott, asso-
ciate director of-the U.S. Depart-
ment of Transportation's Office of
Commercial Space Transporta-
tion.
The NCSL is an organization
of state legislatures which was
created in 1974 to enable multi-
state deliberation and participa-
tion on issues of mutual interest
This year's NCSL meeting will be
held on July 26-30 at Cincinnati
Convention Center. Mr. O'Connor
will address the Transportation
Committee on Sunday, July 26.
The Spaceport Florida Au-
thority was created in 1989 by
Florida's Legislature and Govern-
or under Chapter 331, Part Two,
Florida Statutes. Representative
Roberts and Florida Senator Pat-
sy Kurth were appointed by Flori-
da's legislative leadership to serve
as members of the Spaceport Au-
thority's Board of Supervisors.
The Spacepoit Authority is re-
sponsible for assisting Florida's
space enterprise development, in-
cluding industry, research, and
education,

DearkFriends,
I certainly appreciate the opportunity
to serve you for another four years. It is a
privilege to work in gulf County and you
honor me by allowing me to continue as
Property Appraiser. If I can ever be of ser-
vice to you in any way, at any time, please
let me know.
Again, thank you.
Respectfully,
'KesteyColbert
L


Since the beginning of time
(or at least since the telephone
was invented) AT&Thas been
your long distance company
Which means the first time
you spoke to someone far away;


benefits could become a thing
of the past.
That's because the govern.
ment is asking people in your
area to choose which company
vou'd like to use for
your-long


your voice was
carried by AT&T got t
And it still is A II( l 'USjto) ee
today Except o )( S
the sound qual-
ity is better. The


connection time is faster. The
service is improved. And the
prices are more competitive
than ever.
But, unfortunately all those


p US


your long
distance
calls.
So the
decision is in


your hands. If


you don't choose AI&I, theres
no guarantee you'll keep AT&T
And that's unfortunate.
Because no one offers the qual-
itv or the value that we do, And


no one offers our overall level of
customer service.
Don't let someone else make
your decision for you.
Choose AT&T by calling us at
1800 225-3733, Ext. 5168.
Or the quality you're used to
will become nothing more than
another childhood memory


AT&T
- The right choice.

Presenting

April Morning'
Faith Bible Church will be
the stage for the presentation of
April Morning. Set during the
great Civil War, the play tells the
story of young Jeb Stockton, an
orphaned farmboy who tries to,
run away from God and the reali-
ties of his life by going off to war.n
Faced with the horrors of death
itself in one of the greatest battles.
of the war, he makes a decision
that changes his life for eternity.
April Morning, written by Jim Pot-
ter under the direction of Dr..
Nicky Chavers, promises to be an
exciting and moving play with a
heart-stirring ending.
The 18-member drama team
is one of three teams touring this
summer for The Academy of Arts,
an independent organization lo-
cated in Taylors, South Carolina.
After an intense two week train-
ing camp in Taylors with Dr. and
Mrs. Nicky Chavers and Mr. and
Mrs. Charles Binns, the team be-,
gan its southern tour of over 40
meetings. The Academy of Arts is
in its 21st summer of ministering
through drama. While admission
is free and open to the public, a
free-will offering will be taken to
cover the expenses of the tour.
The church is located at 801
20th Street, Port St. Joe. The ser-
vice begins at 7:00 p.m. Thurs-
day, July 30th.

Make Friends with Your


Garbage Man







Garbage

at the

SYCurb








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 sigificantly
speed up the garbage and recyclable collection task, thus allowing all of the collec-
tion to take place during abnormal 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.

Harvest Illegal Crop

The Gulf County Sheriffs Department made a sweep over
the County last week, by aircraft and on foot, destroying
marijuana plants planted in the woods in secluded places.
A total of 768 plants were discovered and destroyed in
the search-and-destroy operation, according to Sheriff Al
Harrison; from 51 plants found in North Port St. Joe, to a
patch of 307 plants being cultivated and growing in the Ed
Ball Management Area, to several plots in the North end of
the County.
"Some of the plants we located from tips by informants
and some were discovered in an aerial search," Sheriff Harri-
son said.
In the photo above, Sheriff Harrison shows off one of the
half grown plants located in the sweep, and the photo above,
right, shows plants in five-gallon buckets planted and hid-
den in a wooded area.
All of the plants were destroyed by the officers making
the search throughout the County.
