Wilder Says Cuts Made But Future
Seems More Stable Than Last Year
It has been a short summer for Gulf County's students and
teachers, or so it would seem. Classes in the County's five
schools will resume Wednesday morning of next week, with a
full school day.
School bells will ring all over the County at different times in
the different schools [See bell schedule on page 1B in this issue
of The Star].
Classes reconvene earlier in Gulf County than they do in
most counties in Florida. The start-up day was shifted slightly a
few years ago to allow the system to get through the first semes-
ter prior to the Christmas holidays. Other holidays and state re-
quired teacher in-service days also led to the change.
Superintendent of Schools Walter Wilder says the school ad-
ministrative staff is feeling a little more at ease at the start of
this school year. "Last year-the past two years, actually-we
had the spectre of financial cuts from the State of Florida hang-
ing over our heads. Last year, especially, they became a reality
which really caused us to tighten our belt," he said.
"Although we begin this year with a promise of $300,000 less
state money than we were told to expect at the beginning of the
school year, we are reasonably certain we will get what we were
promised this year," Wilder continued,
The Superintendent said the system had made cuts in antici-
pation of a continuing tight year financially. "We didn't replace
five teachers and five support people who left the system for one
reason or another. We left vacant an administration position at
Port St. Joe High School with the retirement of Principal Edwin
Williams," he pointed out.
"Over-all we are a little more certain about our program this
year, because even though our income is less from state funds,
we anticipate receiving what we have been promised. That
makes things a little easier to plan for," Wilder pointed out.


Buses are all repaired
and lined up in a row, ready

on the first day of school
Wednesday. Transportation
people have been working on
them, getting them ready for

Old Theatre



Gets Board's



Attention

Asking Owners to Repair Front

and Remove Dangerous Marquee


City Commissioners' atten-
tion was pulled to the matter of
the old Port Theatre, which is ac-
tively decaying away on Reid Ave-
nue in downtown Port St. Joe.
Commissioner Bill Wood
asked where the matter stood of a
group which wanted to buy the
old building and give it to the City
to develop into a community ac-
tivities building. Chamber of
Commerce executive director, Ta-
mara Laine had told the Commis-
sion several' weeks ago that she
had been approached with the
deal. "Someone wants to do this
for the tax break it will afford
them," she had said.
Wood, seeing no activity go-
ing on concerning the building,
asked, 'What about the old thea-
tre building? Is the interest still
there to purchase it and give it to
the City?"
Mayor Frank Pate said he
had heard nothing about the mat-
ter for a couple of weeks and
thought the donors may have lost
interest in the matter.
Wood said, 'The front of the
building is dangerous to passers-
by. Something is going to fall on
somebody one day. The building
is an eyesore also. Can't we go in
and put a front on the building
with plywood to at least make it
look a little better?"
Pate countered with, -We
should require the owners.to xe-.
move the rotting front and cover
it up." Pate then suggested that
the Commission write the owners


advising them of the' need to
make some kind of effort to make
the building look better.
Discussion about the old
building rolled around the Board
until they finally reached a deci-
sion to begin preliminaries to re-
quiring the owners to do some-
thing with the building or
possibly face condemnation pro-
ceedings.
Attorney William J. Rish was
asked to advise the Building De-
partment of the City in preparing
a stiff letter to the owners sug-
gesting that they repair the fa-
cade of the building which faces
Reid Avenue or formal proceed-
ings will be initiated.
Pate said, 'We've told them
several times and received prom-
ises to make repairs for some
time now, and still nothing's
been done."
After nearly two years of dis-
cussing the building and its con-
dition, the time seems to have
come for the Commission to take
steps for action.
TO BUY CONTAINERS
Public Works Superinten-
dent, Frank Healy," showed the
Commission a waste container for
possible purchase by the City to
use in the solid waste and recy-
cling operation of the City. Healy
handled the container like it was
a new car or something and
beamed over the possibilities of it
solving a multitude of probleins

Rocket Shot Schedule Finally Set

After Delay of More Than A Year for Environmental Impact Study


Florida's space agency has announced
its first in-state launch, delayed for more
than a year because of environmental ques-
tions, for August 22 from Cape San Bias
near Port St. Joe.
Spaceport Florida's 10-foot-long subor-
bital rocket will carry a .sensing device to
measure ozone levels at altitudes of up to
more than 200,000 feet for researchers at
Florida State University, the agency said in a
release.
The launch had been planned for June
of last year, but was scrubbed because of
delays in obtaining federal environmental
permits for the Air Force-owned site on Cape
San Bias.
In the meantime, Spaceport Florida
launched a similar Viper rocket last July in
Mexico to study a solar eclipse. Although the


rocket apparently performed properly, the
Florida Institute of Technology's instrument
payload failed to transmit data.
The Cape San Bias site once was used
by Eglin Air Force Base for missile launches.
Environmental requirements have grown
much stricter over the years since Eglin
stopped using it.
The agency had to revise its environ-
mental assessment and new federal regula-
tions require a wildlife expert on site for eve-
fry launch to make sure no endangered sea
turtles, birds, or other creatures will be
harmed.
The August launch is the first in a series
planned by Florida State meteorologists to
obtain ozone samples during different times
of the year. The data will be compared with
information obtained from NASA satellites


.and ground measuring stations.
"Suborbital launches can provide an ex-
cellent opportunity to collect data at alti-
tudes where measurements are not easily
made," said Kevin A. Kloesel, Florida State's
principal researcher for the project.
Scientists are worried the ozone layer
that shields the earth from ultraviolet rays,
which can harm plant and animal tissue, is
being destroyed by the release of fluorocar-
bons into the atmosphere.
The space agency will have no perma-
nent facilities at the launch site other than
an existing paved pad. Rockets will be
brought to the site from the National Guard
Armory in Apalachicola. A van, containing
all equipment necessary for launches, will
be driven to the site from Spaceport Florida
headquarters in Cocoa Beach.


Apalachicola Weather Station Closing


Folks from this area will no
longer witness severe weather
forecasts which identify the prob-
lem weather as being "Between
Panama City and Apalachicola."
As far as the remainder of the
world knows, Port St. Joe never
has stormy weather.
From now on, the forecasts
and warnings will probably say
something like "Between Panama
City and Tallahassee", because
the weather station in Apalachi-
cola is being closed and the fore-
casting operations moved to Tal-
* lahassee.


By January 1, the NOAA Na-
tional Weather Service station at
Apalachicola will be shut down
and will no longer function as a
part of the system which has
served this area for so long.
The Apalahicola station is be-
ing shut down because the Talla-
hassee station is in line to receive
a new doppler radar which can
see circulation of precipitation in
clouds. Seeing circulation allows
the forecaster to see potential tor-
nadoes and other severe weather,
sometimes as long as 20 minutes


before it hits the ground.
The Apalachicola station has
been cutting back on its reporting
hours. Previously, it operated on
a 24-hour basis but the .service
has recently had its duty hours
reduced. The practice of surface
observation which was taken
hourly, 24 hours each day, has
been eliminated. This information
was especially helpful for fisher-
men and small plane pilots be-
tween Alligator Point and Port St.
Joe.
Presently the Apalachicola


station receives between 1,000
and 3,000 telephone calls each
month for coastal fog, high winds,
freezes, all forms of severe weath-
er, tides, oystering conditions and
sailing conditions, as it was the
only truly coastal weather station
between Tampa and Pensacola.
By the end of the year, this
type information may be obtained
only from the office in Tallahas-
see, including severe weather
warnings such as Hurricane
statements for Gulf and Frank-
lion Counties.


Detour!


Traffic around the new Highland View bridge construc-
tion site has been interrupted this week as the contractor
paves the approach to the bridge from the east side. C. W.
Roberts Contracting Company spokesman, George Roberts
said the paving was being done early to keep rain from erod-
ing the fill dirt at the side down onto the present road bed.
"It can get to be a real problem," he said. The paving work
was winding down the middle of the week. Meanwhile work
on the bridge is progressing even to the point of being a lit-
tle ahead of schedule. "We like to. see it," construction fore-
man Bob Richey said, "Because there are so many things
which can put us behind. I like a few days to play with."

Need Support

Seafood producers of the Panhandle area met Monday to set
strategy for the Marine Fisheries Commission meeting in St. Au-
gustine August 14-16. It is tragic, in our opinion that a group of
men following a way of life which has existed since Biblical
times, have to take time from their labors to defend their liveli-
hood from people who just wish to fish for the fun of it.
The fishermen are asking for help in the nature of support
for their cause to meet this threat against their existence. Their
numbers are few but their zeal for fighting a threat to take their
main tool from them in the name of conservation, is great.
Conservation. That's the magic word. The foes of commercial
fishermen have raised that word up to describe what they are
trying to do by denying the commercial fishermen the use of
their nets.
Recently, we were in Panama City with time to kill prior to a
doctor's appointment, so we rode down by the marina-one of
many places in Panama city to park pleasure boats-and viewed
not dozens, but hundreds of huge pleasure boats, all used to
pursue the sport of catching fish. A couple of years ago we were
in Tarpon Springs touring the sponge docks. The same scene
was spread out before us there.
The point we're trying to make is that the pleasure boat-all
used for catching fish-far outnumbers the commercial boat. We
wonder if this same Florida Marine Fisheries Commission has
been as diligent to find out how many fish the pleasure boats
catch each month, as they have the commercial boats? In the
Panama City News Herald alone, there' are photos of hundreds of
tourists and their fish catches, each week. They catch untold
hundreds of fish. How would their catches measure up to the
commercial boats? If the MFC is interested in conserving a re-
source, fairly, they would find out.
While we're wondering, we wonder what happened to all the
billfish caught recently in the billfish tournament in Panama
City. Were they merely mounted? What happened to all that
meat? The FMC could have some real investigating to do if they
were truly interested in conservation.
If we're really interested in conservation, we could start by
eliminating fishing rodeos and contests to see who could catch
the most and biggest fish.
Let's not begin with outlawing the commercial' fisherman's
nets.


Need An Agreement
It's an important step for the City of Port St. Joe and Gulf
County to finally reach an agreement on recycling, even though
it is a tentative agreement, with a few touchy spots still existing.
Recycling of certain products is coming. Within two years,-
every county in Florida will be required to remove certain prod-
ucts from the solid waste stream and recycle it to give relief to
landfills and incinerators. Both landfills and incinerators are re-
ceiving heavy criticism from environmentalists, so the business
of recycling will be an, important, if not vital, part of our lives in
just one and a half short years,
1 As the deadline draws near and counties all over are tenta-
tively trying to peddle such products as glass, plastics, alumi-
num, paper and others which are now a glut in the solid waste
steam, they are also becoming a glut on the market. They are
worth next to nothing, but they will be the products under fire
by state government for recycling.
The volume of these products are dashing the hopes of com-
munities for selling their reclaimed items for enough to recover
expenses incurred for handling the process. The best any com-
munity can possibly hope for now, is to reduce their costs of col-
lection through sales of recovered material and possibly take
some of the sting off the price of collection and handling.
The City of Port St. Joe is finding this out. They have a de-
pendable market only for the recovered cardboard and wood
chips, which they grind up from yard trimmings, waste lumber
and such Items. Port St. Joe is fortunate that they have a paper
mill .right across the street to take these products, or they, too,
would have a glut of material on their hands.
The proposal by chairman Billy Traylor of the County Com-
mission to have a firm come in and advise the County and City
which way to go is perhaps the better move to make right now.'
Both the County and the City could use a little expert advice and
apply that advice in effective recycling without duplication of ef-
fort. Recycling is going to cost enough doing it the best and most
economical way. Gulf County or Port St. Joe cannot afford any
wasted effort or duplication of effort in the business.

COLBERT


I don't know the first thing
about boxing. And I wasn't going
to do a story on the Olympics. I
figured you'd already seen and
read enough to last you 'til Atlan-
ta in '96. But I can't let this pass.
I don't know anything about box-
ing, but I can count. The Ameri-
can guy out hit the other guy ten
to one. TEN TO ONEI He shille-
laghed him. Knocked him in the
middle of next week. No contest. I'
saw it. Five judges said the Amr-er-
ican won. The five back-up judges
said the fight went to the Ameri-
can. The official scoring computer
gave the fight to the other guy.
Unbelievable!
There was a protest. The
Olympic boxing protest commit-
tee ruled in favor of the computer
over ten judges, millions of eye-
witnesses, and the truth.
Double unbelievable!!
Computers and committees -
- no wonder they didn't get it
right
In the spring of 1964 this big,
long, haired, hippie type fellow
with lots of tattoos and muscles
rode his Harley up to ,the front
door of the Skyway Grill. He
must'a been feeling his oats this
particular day 'cause he strolls
inside, looks the place over and
announces, "I'm going to whip
everybody in this room."
A hush kind'a fell on the
place. The big guy flexed up his
physique to show the patrons
that he could back up what he


No "Standing Eight Count"


said and he was waiting for any
and all challenges. John David
Booker just happened to be seat-
ed on the very first bar stool, en-
joyiiog a cold one. You've got to
understand that J.D. was just
regular size and wasn't prone to
start anything. But you've also
got to understand that J.D. came
up the hard way, was from the
old, old school and didn't have a
back-up gear in his system. He
never even turned around to look
at the intruder but said quietly,
yet loud enough for all to hear,
"Son, if you plan to get very far
you'd better start down at the
other end."
Hollis, who was cleaning up
some tables at the time, said you
should have seen the look on this
big fellow's face. He turned beet
red and reached out, grabbed Mr.
Booker's shoulder and spun him
around J.D. hit him right
flush on the nose. The big guy
went down in a heap ......... and
he didn't get up.
One punch.
Some said later that he might
have hit his head on the comer of
a table as jhe fell. Others specu-
lated that he hit the foot rail and
that blow rendered him uncon-
scious. Most felt he was out the
second J.D.'s right hand made
contact
One thing everyone agreed
on. John David Booker won the
fight
No computer. No one sitting
around, pushing a button every
time a clean blow was delivered.
No committee to discuss the mer-
its of the scoring system or the
human element which may or
may not be involved.............
I tell you how J.D. kept score.
The one left standing was the


winner.
I think sometimes with these
computers we've got ourselves ed-
ucated beyond our intelligence.
We rely on a machine to tell us
what we just saw with our own
eyes and then, when there's a dis-
pute, we send it to a committee.
Listen, it gets worse. If things
really get muddled up, why, we
send in a fact finding commis-
sion. You've all seen those things
"at work."
I wish they'd let me be chair-
man of the Olympic Games in At-
lanta. There'd be no disputed de-
cisions in boxing. We'd go bare
knuckles and fight till one or the
other couldn't get up. We'd save a
lot of money on sophisticated
equipment and we wouldn't need'
any judges. We'd let J.D. Booker
referee. When a fighter couldn't
"toe the line:", J.D. would raise
the other guy's hand.
We could run the marathon
down to Americus. Ain't no com-
puter can help the contestants
with that heat. They can high
jump over a strand of tightly
stretched barb wire. If there is no
blood, it's a clean jump.
We won't use computers.
We'll find out who the real win-
ners are.
We'd simplify the '96 games.
Instead of synchronized swim-
ming, we'd have a meanest man
contest. The only rule would be -
there are no rules. Last guy
standing wins. You won't even
need a referee. Talk about fight-
ing for the Gold.
We could have a redneck con-
test. The contestants would have
to take their shirts off while eat-
ing bar-be-que.......... I'm for any
kind of game in which you can
figure out the winner without us-


ing a computer.
Respectfully,
Kesley


Signs Are A

Nuisance
To the Editor:
It must be apparent to every-
one that our roads are becoming
polluted with political signs.
These signs, posted on Florida
right-of-ways, are illegal. ,Quite a
few are posted on various proper-
-ties that are owned by* St. Joe
Paper Co. Permission is required
from them to place such signs.
None has been granted.
I consider these reminders an
insult to my intelligence. There is
no doubt that most voters are
aware of who is runising for what
office in the county and don't
need to be reminded of their
names by a blight on the land-
scape every 1/2 mile or so...
As citizens we are told that
ignorance of the law is no excuse.
If these candidates are not aware
of their signs then they haven't
driven around the county lately,
and therefore shouldn't be voted
into office in the first place... and,
if they ARE aware of the signs.
then why are they breaking the
law?
In one sense, it's probably a
good thing. They tell the voters
who NOT to vote for... I hope the
voters pay attention.
Thank you,

Information About Years Gone By Never Ceases to Amaze Me


NOTHING IS EVER dull
about this newspaper business. If
things of an interesting nature
aren't happening, then someone
of an interesting nature is paying
us a visit.
There are all kinds of inter-
esting people around here. I'm
not talking about "interesting"
from a peculiar or flaky view-
point; I'm talking "interesting"
from an interesting viewpoint.
You know the kind; you learn
something from their visit and
wish you could spend more time
listening to them talk.
Some people who come by
the office have some interesting
things to say. I'll grant you that
the majority who come by to bend
my ear have a pet peeve about
some matter or other, or a per-
sonal nature, and want me to use
a page or two of editorial to either
castigate or support their particu-
lar bit of Interest.
Even that type visitor makes


for an interesting day at times.
It comes with the territory.

LAST WEEK, HOWEVER, I
had a very interesting visitor
come by hunting for some infor-
mation and -some pictures. I
didn't have the pictures he want-
ed, but he had two I would have
loved to have had.
Eddie Nesmith was the visi-
tor. If you don't know Eddie, he
was the caretaker of the Fort
Gadsden State Park over on the
Telogia highway for many years,
until he retired a few years back.
Eddie became so smitten by
Fort Gadsden, during his tenure


there, that he set out to learn all
he could about the early days of
Florida as a Territory and the role
of Fort Gadsden in this section of
the state.
While he was searching for
authentic data about one part of
history, or another, he came
across some photos of this area
which pre-dated the Civil War. He
is an interesting fellow to talk to
and he has some interesting pho-
tographs to look at.

THE TWO PHOTOGRAPHS
Eddie had with him on this par-
ticular visit, were photographs of
this area taken many years ago.


There was one photograph
taken at lola in 1854. Iola, as
you may or may not know, was
the northern end of the St. Jo-
seph and Iola Railroad which was
built to capture the river cotton
transportation market some 115
years ago. By 1854, the big boom:
ing cotton business on the Apa-
lachicola River was over, but traf-
fic still plied up and down the.riv-
er, with lola one of the main
stops in what is now Gulf
County.
If you are familiar at all with
the history of photography you
will know that the process was
still in is infancy back then. Pho-
tographers used large cameras on
tripods for all their pictures. The
negatives were glass and coated
with the photographic emulsion
Just before the photograph was
taken. So, photographers didn't
waste effort, time and materials
just taking snapshots as we know
them now. It had to be of some
importance for them to take a pic-


ture of it.
EDDIE'S PHOTO of Iola was
of a building, which apparently
was a store building or a building
of some importance in the life of
lola at that time. It was evidently
a public building of some sort,
since there was some advertising
for patent medicine painted on
the side. The rest of the building
was unpainted.
In the background was a size-
able log house. It wasn't just a
cabin, but was a larger building
of some sort.
In front was a high-wheeled
ox cart with a couple of men
standing around it.
A photograph of downtown
Iola, in the rush hour, I suppose.
THEN THERE WAS a photo-
graph, taken in more recent
years, of the old sand rut trail
which served as a road between
Port St. Joe and Apalachicola.
There was a sign, showing the


Franklin-Calhoun County line
[Gulf was a part of Calhoun
County until 1925]. Under the
photo of the two rut road through
the sand was lettering, evidently
put there years ago, which said,
'This Road Recently Had Shell
Placed in the Most Sandy Spots."
The sign identified the high-
way as the "Bee Line Highway".
the sign was on the left side of
the road and a fence, which Nes-
mith said marked the boundary
of the McNeill property, was on
the right side.
Back then, a trip to Apalachi-
cola, or anywhere else for that
matter, was at least an all day af-
fair. The Gulf Oil truck used to
come to Port St Joe from Apa-
lachicola over that road. Nesmith
said it was an all day trip to ser-
vice the outlets in Port St. Joe,
Beacon Hill, and return to Apa-
lachicola, getting there about
dark.
It was interesting, taking this
short peek into yesterday.

Phantry
By
Wendell Campbell


Danny Boy
About two months ago Sonny, Port St. Joe's premier music
buff, made me a tape of Ray Price's version of Danny Boy. The song
is a classic and no one does It better than Ray Price.
The song is about the love between a man and his son who is
going off to war. The father laments: "It's you, it's you must go and I
must bide." If you are a man and, like me, have a son (two), you
might find chills running up and down your spine and a tear or two
in your eyes when you listen to Danny Boy, especially Ray Price's
version.
But I was reminded of another Danny when I heard Danny Boy
again. Danny Salmon and I were almost best friends when we were
in college'at the University of Southern Mississippi. You see, Danny
was married while in school and he and his wife and daughter lived
in the "married" apartments. I was single and lived in an un-air
conditioned dormitory and those two things made our life styles
somewhat different.
But we 'were close, Danny and I. We had a lot in common. We
both played football, loved to drink beer (during the off-season, of
course) and neither of us ever had an abundance of money. Those
three things set the stage for some good 'times because we never
had enough money to get ourselves into trouble, but we managed.
Danny was a scrapper! He loved, contact sports like football,
fighting and such. If a friend (me) was involved in a confrontation,
Danny never stopped to ask whose fault it was or who started it.
Right or wrong, he sided with his friend. Friends felt physically safe
when Danny was around because they knew, without a doubt, that
Danny was there if they needed him and sometimes if they didn't.
Often times when Danny's wife, Wanda, was out of town, he
would come by the dorm or find me wherever I was and look at/me
and smile his mischievous smile and say, "Moose., let's me and you
go have some fun!" My answer was: always a question: "Whdre's
Wanda?"
I don't know who Wanda stayed', mad at more, Danny or me.
Wanda stopped me one morning after Danny had come by the dorm
the night before and told me in no uncertain language what she
thought about me "dragging" her husband out 'til all hours of the
morning. And Wanda had a way with words. Deep down, though,
Wanda really liked me, I believe.
I don't recommend our lifestyle. to young people because we
were lucky to have lived through it. Danny was extremely lucky that
his marriage su-vived and I was just lucky, period.
After we left school we visited a couple of times. My wife, son
'and I visited with Danny and Wanda on our way through Birming-
ham a few years after we graduated. Another time, when Danny
and Wanda were on vacation in Panama City, they came over to
Port St. Joe and had dinner with 'us. Danny stayed the night.and I
took him back to Panama the next day. And although our lives and
lifestyles had changed, we remained good friends. Once a friend, al-
ways a friend, was the way it was with Danny.
"Oh, Danny Boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling; from glen to
glen and down the mountain side. The summer's gone and all the
leaves are falling. It's you, it's you must go and I must bide."
A mutual friend, Jim King, called me three weeks ago last Sat-
urday and told me Danny had been killed in a terrible car crash
just north of Birmingham. Jim said he had visited with Danny two
weeks before and he said a good portion of the conversation had
been about "Moose."
It had been over 10 years since I had seen Danny, but it broke
my heart. The next time I go close to Birmingham I'm going to visit
Danny's grave and kneel and say an Ava over him.
I miss you, Danny Boy. '


His Meaning Wasn't Clear


Dear Sir,
At the Gulf County Commis-
sioner's meeting of Tuesday, July
14, 1992, the subject of single
member district voting was dis-
cussed. This matter has previous-
ly been addressed in our county.
and a decision has been rendered
by the Florida Courts that Gulf
County abide by single member
district voting. Three of our
County Commissioners would
like to change our method of vot-
ing to "at large" whereby all citi-
zens of the county vote for all
commissioners. This is in direct
opposition to the ruling by the
Courts.
At this meeting, I said, "It
isn't fair the way it is". The STAR,
our local newspaper, identified
the "It" in this statement as refer-
q, ring to single member districts.
What it was referring to was the
fact that the -Commissioners
wanted to reverse the Court's de-
cision.
When we quote, someone di-
rectly, we should always state
only what was said. Before we
make assumptions about any
part of the quoted statement, we
should clarify with the speaker
what the original intent of the
words, was. The STAR printed my
statement like. this: "I agree it

No Gifts, Please
To the Citizens of Port St. Joe,
Wewahitchka, and Gulf County:
I don't need to tell you how
much my family and I appreciate
all that you have done for me
during my illness. I am so grate-
ful for the comfort and under-
standing you gave me when it
was so desperately needed. I am
now on the road to recovery.
We thank.you for your visits,
prayers, words of expressions and
gifts. I spent 37 years of my life in
the Gulf County School System.
Many of you during the past
month received letters and tele-
phone calls asking for donations
for gifts to be presented to me at
"Emancipation '92 Day" on Au-
gust 29. Disregard all calls and
letter that you received.
Thanks again for your con-
cern and may God bless you as
you have asked him to bless me.
Edwin G. Williams


[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."
: My definition of "it" and the
STAR's definition of "it" are not
the same at all.
Robert Bryant
Ed Note: Placing the brack-
ets around the words "single
member district" properly identi-
fied them as being added by the
Editor. As you wrote, it wasn't


what you meant. Which goes to
show that what we say and the
way we say it is sometimes mis-
understood.


Good News On
Water Project

Dear Editor Ramsey:
Recently, the Gulf County
Board of County Commissioners
received good news from the pro-
ject engineer for the White City
Water System. Mr. Jerry Ausley,
the area representative for the
Farmers Home Administration
announced the White City Water
System.had a very high priority to
receive additional funding for the
completion of the project. He sug-
gested at least half of the funding
could be in the form of a grant.
As you know, the Board has
received $200,000.00 from the
State of Florida to be applied to-
ward this project. Of that amount
more than $189,000.00 remains
in the account for the White City
Water System. Although this is
not enough to complete the entire
project, it will be enough when
added to the anticipated funding
from the Farmers Home Adminis-
tration. Only preliminary, neces-
sary engineering fees of less than
$11,000.00 have been paid from
the grant from the State of Flori-
da. The entire balance remains in
an account to be used only for
the White City Water System.
It is anticipated the White
City Water System will receive to-
tal funding of $600,000.00. Of,
that amount $400,000.00 should.
be in the form of outright grants,
which are not required to be re-
paid. As presently contemplated,
only a debt of $200,000.00 would
be Incurred.
At this point the funding ar-
rangement for the White City Wa-
ter System would not impose nor
require any lien on individual
property owners. The residents of
White City would not be required
to join the system nor would they
be assessed a tax. 'Any debt
would be repaid by the users of
the system.
As soon as final funding com-
mitments from the Farmers Home
Administration are received, actu-
al construction of this project can
get under way. Hopefully, that
could be within the next several
months.
Sincerely,
Robert M. Moore
County Attorney

practically indestructible, resist-
ant to tipping, the lid was at-

Healy was asking the City to
purchase the container, or one
like it, and require customers 'to
roll their containers to the curb-
side on waste collection days. "It
rolls easy," he said. "Infirm or old
people shouldn't have any prob-
lem pushing the container to the
collection spot However, if they
do, have a problem, if they'll tell
us, we will roll it, to the curb for
them."
The container is.of 60-gallon
capacity and contains a reusable
bag for placing recyclables inside.
'The householder will need to
place everything which goes in
the container in a bag," ,he said,
"One for garbage and the one for

DOT Cracking Down

On Illegally Posted


Political Signs
With the primary and general election fast approaching, politicians
and campaign workers are out in full force erecting signs and billboards.
Florida Department of Transportation officials remind those erecting
signs, that Florida Statute 479.11 prohibits locating any sign on the
right-of-way of a State Highway System or any portion of the interstate or
federal-aid primary highway system.
District Secretary Bill Waddell said, "Signs located within the right-
of-way and those that pose a safety hazard will be removed without noti-
fication." He said DOT crews will be removing signs using the following
guidelines:
1) Signs that are in the maintained right-of-way.
,2) Signs that are between the power lines and roadway.
3) Signs attached to trees, utility poles or official signs.
Candidates are also reminded that campaign signs located off the,
right-of-way must be removed within 30 days after the candidate with-
draws, is eliminated or has been elected to office. If DOT removes the
sign, the cost of removing it will be charged to the candidate.


and the bag containing recycla-
bles in the trailer behind the
truck in just a matter of seconds.
This will speed up and simplify
our garbage and recycling opera-
tion considerably," he continued.
The Commission agreed for
Healy to advertise for bids for the
container, asking that he obtain
1,700 of the units.
REPORT
James B. Roberts had beep
asked by the Commission to ob-
tain some information about
handball courts, with the thought
of building one or two at the 16th
Street park.
Roberts made his report
Tuesday, saying he had gone to
Gulf Coast Community College to
look at their complex and deter-
mine how much the courts would
cost. "As near as I can determine,
they would cost about $5,000
each and we would need at least
two," Roberts said.
"In the first place, you all
should have come up with this
idea before we set the budget for
next year," Mayor Frank Pate
mused.
Roberts wasn't told, to quit
his research into the matter, so
the Commission seems to still be
interested in the project of build-
ing the courts.
Johnny Linton said the City
needs to consider future needs of
baseball fields in Forest Park in
the future, which calls for placing

Shoemaker, treasurer. Members
of the Board of Directors are Jan-
ice Scovell, Judith Harney, Jean

The device being manufac-
tured by the firm utilizes a vib-
brating bottom roller for use by
all commercial 'or recreational
shrimpers. The vibrating bottom
roller emits a sound which caus-
es shrimp to come out of the mud
and through bars spaced parallel
to each other, forming a rake-like
device. The rake-like device keeps
turtles and dolphins from enter-
ing the nets and the metallic
sound produced by the spring
steel and rollers causes fish to
swim away, reducing by-catch.
The trawl is built with fingers
that comb the grass without dis-
turbing it. The roller is designed
to roll over any object on the
ocean floor.
The manufacturers claim the
"C-Lector" exceeds any state or
federal regulations required of
such trawls.
The "C-Lector" is manufac-
tured as a joint venture by N&L
Machine Works- of Blountstown,
with sales offices located at West
Highway 98 near Port St Joe.


Pavement Ants
Are Aggressive

If the pavement ant would
only live up to its name and stay
beneath the pavement, millions of
homeowners would be far happi-
er.
Unfortunately, pavement ants
slow-moving dark brown or
black ants about an eighth of an
inch long are busy and aggres-
sive seekers of food. They forge
their way indoors, combing kitch-
en floors and cupboards for
crumbs.
And once indoors, the ants
are tempted to stay there,-forsak-
, ing pavement life for the cozy
year-round warmth beneath
floors and inside partition walls.
They're also nearer to a steady
food supply.

Major Causes of

Disabilities In

.Children Today
By
';'* .., Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

It is generally accepted that prevention of disabilities is better
than treatment after they occur. Before one can work on a problem
he has to know where the problem occurs.
The following is a list published by the Developmental Disabili-
ties Planning Council to identify families who will need special at-
tention:
1. Pregnant women over 40 or under 17 years of age.
2. Pregnant women who have little or no prenatal care.
3. Parents with a family incidence of genetic disorder.
4. Women who have multiple miscarriages or pregnancies that
are too close together.
5. Parents who were exposed to excessive drugs, radiation or in-
dustrial pollutants.
6. Parents with low educational attainment.
7. Parents who are poor.
8. Medically underserved populations such as rural residents,
migrant workers, and families who are poor but ineligible for Medic-
aid.
9. Families who already have medically vulnerable children or
children who do not develop normally.
10. Parents who were abused, neglected or abandoned as chil-
dren.
We have all known individuals who were able to overcome ob-
stacles and conditions' that were considered insurmountable, but
how much better to look at the above list and say. "I fit into that list
but I refuse to be a statistic and will alter my behavior or conditions
in whatever way necessary to prevent falling into these categories."

Lone Red Wolf Roaming


St. Vincent Island Refuge


After being in an acclimation
pen since January, a pair of red
wolves were released on St. Vin-
cent National Wildlife Refuge


Curious

Animal


Facts...
*The sea cucumber is a very
strange creature. It will throw all
of its internal organs at an at-
tacker, and will still live.
Because the organs can not
be drawn back into the body, the
sea cucumber has to grow a
whole new set!
*The nose of a camel is lined
with an absorbent tissue that re-
cycles two-thirds of the moisture
it inhales!
*The camel does not store wa-
ter in its hump. The reason the
camel may go for longer periods
of time without drinking is be-
cause of the way the camel's body
tolerates and emits heat
For example, when you be-
come very hot and begin to per-
spire, it is because your body
needs to cool down.
The camel can tolerate a
much higher body temperature
than humans, allowing it to re-
tain water even though the air is
ve-y hot.
; The camel also can tolerate a
lower body temperature. This en-
ables it to withstand cold during
the night, while its body cools
down from the day's heat.
*North American wood turtles
h4ve learned tq dance for food. By
stamping their feet on the
ground, vibrations cause earth-
worms to surface. Prestol It's a
Sluick supper!
*Talk about women's lib! ant-
arctic penguins have interesting
male and female roles.
It is the male penguin who
stays home, while the female goes
out to search for food. The jour-
ney usually requires about two
months, and covers more than
100 icy miles


June 17 announced Refuge Man-
ager Donald J. Kosin. Unfortu-
nately, the female of the pair was
found dead July 13. The wolf was
shipped to the National Wildlife
Health Research Center in Madi-
son, Wisconsin for necropsy. Al-
though initial investigation could
not determine the exact cause of
death, the wolf is believed to have
died from natural causes.
Wildlife Biologist Thomas
Lewis, who is responsible for the
day-to-day island propagation
project, gave the following brief
history. Red wolves once roamed
throughout the southeastern
United States, from the Atlantic
coast, west to Texas, and as far
north as the Ohio River. By the
early 20th century the species
had been exterminated from most
of its territory by aggressive pred-
ator control activities and the
conversion of forests to agricul-
ture. By the 1970's the red wolves
teetered on the brink of extinc-
tion, with less than 100 wolves
remaining in the wild.
The current population is
well over 200 animals of which
approximately 25 are living in the
wild at Alligator River National
Wildlife Refuge in North Carolina
and Great Smoky Mountain Na-
tional Park in Tennessee.
The primary goal of the island


5-year propagation project is to
produce young raised in the wild
for use in the red wolf re-
establishment efforts elsewhere in
the Southeast.
Island propagation projects
may offer certain advantages over
other captive breeding situations.
On an island, juvenile red wolves
can be allowed to develop the
adaptive skills needed for survival
in the wild, while at the same
time benefitting from the protec-
tion of a confined setting.
In addition to the project at
St. Vincent Refuge, successful is-
land propagation projects are be-
ing conducted at Bulls Island,
South Carolina which is part of
the Cape Romain National Wild-
life Refuge; and at Horn Island,
Mississippi, a part of Gulf Islands
National Seashore.
The project at St. Vincent will
continue in the future. A new fe-
male may be brought in or the
male will be recaptured and a
new pair will be placed on the is-
land.
The goal of the Service's red
wolf recovery plan is to ensure
long-term red wolf survival by es-
tablishing a total population of
550 animals, of which approxi-
mately 220 would live in the wild
in refuges, parks, and other pro-
tected areas.

Wildflowers Going Wild!


Wildflower popularity is going
wild. Bright yellow lance-leaved
coreopsis, and black-eyed susans,
as well as oxeye daisies and pur-
ple rocket larkspurs are popping
up in beds and meadows every-
where in backyards, along
sidewalks and driveways, and
even as decorative trim along the
front of houses.- adding spectac-
ular color and beauty to home
landscapes across the country.
Though easy to grow, the key
to growing wildflowers successful-
ly is to understand the conditions
they Squire in their native habi-
tats. Soil type, average rainfall,
temperature range, shade and
sunlight are all important factors.
Consequently,- the wildflowers


best suited to your property are
the same that would grow natu-
rally under your property's envi-
ronmental conditions.
Most wildflower seeds come
prepackaged in mixtures. These
mixtures usually contain blends
of annuals, perennials, biennials
and a "nurse" grass seed, such as
a hard or tall fescue. The nurse
grass will germinate quickly, thus
preventing weed growth while the
wildflowers grow and become es-
tablished.
Selecting the right mixture to
meet your specific needs depends
on several factors besides geo-
graphical area, soil type and col-
or. These important factors are:
@Germination. If there's no
rainfall after seeding, a thorough
watering will promote germina-
tion and early establishment. Es-
tablished wildflower plants will
survive dry periods without wa-
ter, but-won't flower as often. -

eight weeks after planting. Other
flower species require various de-
grees of maturity before they can
flower. Depending on,the environ-
ment, the flowering plant's height
will range from two 4to three and
one-half feet.
*Flowering Expectations.
Perennial wildflowers will persist
the first year and bloom the next,
while annual will grow and flower
the first year, produce seed, then
germinate and bloom the follow-
ing year. The first season is al-
ways the showiest for annuals. To
preserve the original balance of
the mixture, reseed every two
years. Otherwise native species
will dominate over the years.
Once you've decided which
wildflowers to plant and where to
put them, it's time to sow the
seeds. First, remove all weeds
from the planting site. Thorough-
ly rake the soil to loosen it, then
rake again lightly to form grooves.
Loose, exposed soil is a must be-
cause good soil-to-seed contact is
essential for successful seed ger-
mination.
Once planted, routine wild-
flower maintenance is a breeze.
Simply keep the seeds and
ground evenly moist until the
seedlings are established, a peri-
od of seven to 10 days. Providing
adequate moisture is very impor-
tant, especially if seeds are sown.
in late spring or early summer af-
ter the weather has become
warm. Then, keep weeds out and
mow once a year when wildflow-
ers are dormant, usually in late
fall or early spring. Mowing
should be done at a height of four
to six inches. Avoid fertilizing,
which encourages weeds rather
than wildflower growth.
As the wildflowers become es-
tablished, certain species will be-
gin to dominate others. To main-
tain the original balance of
species, reseeding is recommend-
ed every two years.

Bass Limits Relaxed...


The Florida Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission will allow
permitted tournament anglers to
possess more than one black
bass over 22 inches long if all fish
are released alive immediately af-
ter weigh-in.
The rule, which was approved
at a Commission meeting in Cle-
wiston on July 17, sets up guide-.
lines that bass tournaments must
abide by if they are to receive an
exception to exceed the, special
daily bag limit of one black bass
over 22 inches long.
Since July 1, anglers have
been subject to new bass fishing
regulations which include a state-
wide five-fish daily, bag limit, only
one of which can be longer than
22 inches and a minimum length
of either 12 or 14 inches (depend-
ing on location).
"Limiting anglers to keeping
only one 22-inch bass penalizes
the tournament angler whose
standings are determined by the
total weight they catch," said For-
rest Ware, chief of the Commis-
sion's bureau of fisheries re-
search. If steps are taken to
ensure that fish are released
alive, tournament organizers may
apply for an exception, so long as
the event does not adversely im-

Adriana Camara, an excellent
student from Mexico is looking
forward to becoming a member of
the Port St. Joe community..Adri-
ana is very excited about continu-
ing her studies in an American
high school, improving her Eng-
lish skills and most of all, learn-
ing about day to day life in Ameri-
ca.
AYUSA International, a non-
profit student exchange organiza-
tion is sponsoring Adriana and
other students like her who will
be coming from all over Europe,
Asia and Latin America. AYUSA is
currently interviewing interested


families now so that students and
the families can start writing let-
ters and sending photographs be-
fore the students' arrival in Au-
gust.
The main qualification for
families interested in hosting a
student like Adriana is a desire to
learn about another person's cul-
ture and a willingness to share
one's home with an exchange stu-
dent for the 1992-93 school year.

Two Girl Scout groups that
are part of the Governor's Drug-
Free Communities Grant program
have been busy doing activities to
help keep them "drug-free." Every
troop or group in the program
has been working all year on ac-
tivities that increase their aware-
ness of the harmful effects of
drugs while also improving self-
esteem and giving them the tools
to just say "No" to drugs and oth-
er negative influences. These ex-

girl setting will help the girls con-
tribute to society, now and in the
future.

Course Description


pact the resource, he said.
The rule requires bass tour-
naments with. 100 or more an-
glers to obtain a permit from the
Commission to conduct the tour-
nament. Application for the per-
mit must be made at least 60
days but not more than 455 days
prior to the event. Tournament
organizers can also apply for a
temporary exception that would
allow anglers to possess more
than one bass over 22 inches a
day.
In addition, tournaments
with 20 to 99 anglers may apply
for a permit that would grant a
temporary exception to the spe-


cial daily bag limit. However, they
would not be required to have a
permit to conduct the event, if
they do not want the exception.
Also, tournaments with fewer
than 20 anglers would not be re-
quired to have a permit, nor
would they be eligible for an ex-
ception to exceed the one 22-inch
bass limit.
Ware said, before a tourna-
ment can be granted an exception
to exceed the special daily bag
limit, organizers must meet crite-
ria established by the Commis-
sion for the handling and releas-
ing of fish.
Tournament organizers and


bass clubs must meet the follow-
ing requirements to receive an ex-
ception: I
*Each boat must have one or
more aerated livewells.
*All bass must be transported
from boats to the weigh-in site in
water-filled containers, such as
heavy duty plastic bags.
*Bass shall not be kept in wa-
ter-filled containers longer than
five minutes prior to or after the
weigh-in without supplemental
aeration or water exchange.
*No more than five bass may
be transported in one water-filled
container.
*A penalty of at least four
ounces must be imposed on an
angler for each dead fish
weighed-in.
*Only artificial lures may be
used.
*All life fish caught in a per-
mitted event must be released at
a Commission-approved site after
weigh-in, including the angler's
normal five-fish bag limit.
*Dead fish will be donated to
charity, used for research or oth-
erwise disposed of as approved by
Commission personnel. Dead fish
may not be kept by the angler.
All permitted tournaments,
with or without an exception,
must meet the following guide-
lines:
*No more than six hours be-
tween weigh-ins will. be allowed
for permitted tournaments con-
ducted during June, July and Au-
. gust, when bass mortality is high-
est.
*After an event, organizers
are required to submit a report to
the Commission within 30 days
detailing catch results.
To administer the tourna-
ment permitting process, the
Commission will .be adding a
three-person staff that will be re-
sponsible for monitoring large
tournaments, conducting re-
search on the impacts of tourna-
ments on bass populations and to
ensure the new rule does not ad-
versely affect public resources.

BECAUSE SO MUCH IS RIDING
ON YOUR TIRES."';


Wewahitcbka


Have you ever seen a photo
of an ancient human skull? If
you looked closely, you would
have seen a full set of teeth in-
.cluded. Teeth are made of one
-of the hardest natural substanc-
es on earth and should not only
last a lifetime (if properly cared
for) but thousands of years after
-our lifetime.
Despite the fact that Ameri-
cans are among those who en-
joy the best dental care in the
world, most of us have an oddly
defeatist attitude about our
teeth. We seem to fully expect
each member of our family -
sooner or later to lose sever-
al or even all of our permanent
teeth.
Much of this fatalism is


based upon the misconception
that your natural teeth are
somewhat not sturdy enough to
last you a lifetime that every-
one must sooner or later join the
20 million toothless people in
this nation. But that's definitely
not a true assumption.
With the proper eating hab-
its (staying away from sugar),
proper home care and regular
visits to your dentist, your teeth
should last a lifetime plus a few
thousand years.

vice to promote better dental

Dog Fly Spraying to

Commence Along

Panhandle Beaches
Pint-size pests hovering over white sandy beaches have the
potential to spoil a sunbather's paradise. That's why the Florida
Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services will be tar-
geting a pesky fly that populates the Panhandle coastline dur-
ing the summer months.
The Department, which oversees the state's mosquito con-
trol efforts, will be launching an aerial spray program over
Northwest Florida beaches later this month to counter the in-
trusion of dog flies; ..
The Department will use DC-3 aircraft to spray a pesticide
that controls a particular breed of flies that migrates to North-
west Florida beaches during the summer and fall months.
The midday spraying, which is limited to a very narrow
area along the coastline, does not harm humans or property.
Also, because the amount of chemical contained in the spray is
very small, the spraying does not leave a residue on vehicles or
clothing.
Florida Agriculture Commissioner Bob Crawford said Pan-
handle residents and tourists should not be alarmed when they
begin seeing low-flying aircraft navigating over the beaches. Al
aircraft, which are licensed and operated in compliance with
the regulations of the Federal Aviation Administration, will be
flown parallel to and a short distance behind the beaches.
Dog flies are more of a public nuisance than a public health
threat. The pest looks like a house fly and is a daytime biter.
"The Panhandle has some of the world's greatest beaches.
and we want Floridians and tourists to enjoy the coast without
having to contend with these pests," Crawford said.
Northerly winds carry dog flies from agricultural areas to
the Panhandle coastline. Dog flies have been known to travel
distances of 150 miles. When flies reach the coastline, they oc-
casionally breed from piles of seaweed along gulf shores.
The flies become concentrated on the beaches because the
water serves as a barrier to their migration.
"The aerial spray program is conducted from July through
November when the flies are concentrated on the beaches."
Crawford said. "Timing is critical to this program, because the
wind holding the flies on the beaches eventually shifts. When
this happens, the flies quickly disperse inland and disturb peo-
ple and animals."
But these flies predominantly breed in agricultural areas
near the state's border with Alabama. They are primarily an an-
noyance to livestock and can be found where large numbers of
animals are located.

Control Program, contact: Dog Fly Control, 3920 North Frank-
ford Avenue, Panama City. Florida 32405. or telephone (904)

The Summons
As is usual with Mr. Kelley,
our invitation to return to school
was again very clever this year. I
thought I'd share it with you.
Dear Staff:
I know that you really don't
want to read or hear this, but
there are only seventeen, yep,
Ss-e-v-e-n-t-e-e-n (17) days before
' the training camp begins.
:' It is time to form a "LEAGUE
OF OUR OWN" and begin playing
the grand old American game. We
must enter the playing field each
,day with a gleam in our eye and
inspiration on our minds. Each

We must throw each pitch so
that all students may experience
success. Some will hit home

few will walk. Yet, each in his

New Library Roof

.The Public Library building in Port St.
Joq has been plagued with a leaking roof for
sorhe time, now, and has resisted attempts at
repair. At the beginning of this fiscal year,.
the, County Commission decided to put a dif-
ferent type roof on the' building which would


correct the leaking situation and last a long
period! of time. A metal roof is being in-
stalled, as well as a different shape, giving
the roof a slight pitch to facilitate drainage.
The material arrived on thejob last week end
and will be installed by Fisher Construction
of Wewahitchka who bid $24,000 for the job.
The roofing material is shown above and is
made of Galvalum, a material which is a
mixture of galvanized and aluminum.


Trouble-Free and Pest-Free


Pampas Grass Is Great!


You don't have to pamper
pampas grass! This attractive per-
ennial, which is native to Latin
America, Brazil, Argentina, and
Chile, is practically trouble free.
It's well adapted to all areas of
Florida. Pampas grass grows in
large clumps, eight to 10 feet:
h,,, iglJn fate summer, it produces
showy silver-white or pinkish
silken plumes, which may reach
a height of 12 feet. ca : b
Pampas, grass can be very
eye-catching when "used as a
specimen plant in .the landscape.
Because it grows very. rapidly into
a massive plant, pampas grass
can provide an excellent "sCreen'
for sunny locations. Unfortunate-
ly, it is often used improperly as a
foundation plant. In such cases,
it usually is purchased from a,
nursery when it's small and
plahted-1agr the home. At, first, it
will. lok fine. But, after several
years, it will have reached such a
large size that it will be difficult to
find the house for the pampas
grass. .
There are many ornamental
forms of pampas grass. The,
plume-like bloom differs from
malj and female plants. The fe-


male plumes are broad and full,'
due to the silky hairs covering the
tiny flowers. The male plumes
look narrow and short, because
of the absence of hair on the flow-
ers. Also, there is' considerable
variation among seedlings in
growth habits, period of flower-
lhg, size and shape. So if unifor-
mity is desired, pampas grass
should be propagated by dividing
clumps, rather than by seed. My
information on pampas grass was
provided by Extension Urban
Horticulturist Dr. Robert Black of
the University of Florida's Insti-
tute of Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences.
The plutmes of pampas grass
are highly prized for Indoor deco-
rations. Plumes used for this pur-
pose should be cut as soon as
they have fullyenemerged. If ma-
ture plumes are brought indoors,
they will fill the home with deli-.
cate, fluffy flowers, which can be
a bigger problem than a shedding
dog or cat. This shedding can be
prevented by spraying the plumes
with hair spray.
When selecting planting sites
for pampas grass, special atten-
tion should be paid to the poten-

produce few, if any, plumes.
As I said, pampas grass suf-
fers from practically no pest or-
disease problems. It has good salt
tolerance, and will,grow in almost
any soil. Once it's established,
about all you need to do is give it
adequate fertilizer. For healthy
growth and good plume produc-
tion, pampas grass should be fer-
tilized four times a year with a
balanced fertilizer, such as an 8-
'8-8, applied at the rate of two
pounds per 100 square feet.
In our area, pampas grass
leaves are often killed by freezing
*temperatures. But, 'new leaves-


,.-will sprout in the spring. Before
spring growth begins, you should
prune away 'brown leaves and
other dead material that'has ac-
cumulated at the base of your
plants. When working around
pampas, grass, it's a good idea to
;wear long pants, a long sleeved
shirt, 'and gloves to protect you
from the sharp leaf blades we
* mentioned earlier.
The striking, feathery plumes
',and large, graceful clumps of foll-
age make pampas grass a very
. desirable addition to a landscape.
Since it's so trouble free, perhaps
you'd like to try some around'
your home.

Girl Scouts Return From

Camp Sampler Session


The girls attending the Camp
Sampler Session at Girl Scout
Camp For All Seasons have just
returned from an exciting week of
campcraft, swimming, arts and
crafts, canoeing and archery.
Camp Sampler's emphasis was
on the camping basics with the
girls learning how to pitch tents,
tie knots, and build a campfire.
The highlight of Camp Sampler 1
was a breakfast cookout over an
open fire with french toast, pan-
cakes, or anything else a girl
could think to cook. The girls who
attended Camp Sampler 2
camped overnight in tents and
cooked stir fry and rice over an
open fire for dinner and an apple


pie in a box oven for dessert. Eve-
ryone enjoyed their sample of
camp life. Camp For All Seasons:
is located south of Tallahassee on
Lake Talquin and sessions will
continue throughout the sum-
mer.
Attending the Camp Sampler
2 was Jessica Cole of Wewahitch-
ka.

In certain cases, foster children are also eligible
for these benefits. If a household has foster children
living with them and wishes to apply for such meals
for them, the household should contact the school
for more information.
Unless indicated otherwise on the application,
the information on the free and reduced price meal
application may be used by the school system in de-
termining whether the child is eligible for other edu-
cational programs.
-In the operation of child feeding programs ad-
ministered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, no
child will be discriminated against because of race,
color, sex, national origin, age or handicaps. If any
member of a household believes they have been.dis-
criminated against, they should write immediately to
the Secretary of Agriculture, Washington, D.C.

Education Association's annual
Representative Assembly. Ses-
sions started July 5 and contin-
ued through July 8.
The business meeting
brought together the largest dem-
ocratic deliberative body in the
world.
The theme for the 1992 gath-
ering was, "Elections '92 New
Priorities for Children."
In his keynote address July
5, NEA President Keith Geiger
stressed that the nation's policy-
makers continue to slight public
education and the children It
serves, ignoring their urgent med-
ical as well as educational needs.
Geiger told the delegates,
"The Cold War is over, but too
many of our children are still out

More Facts You Might Need
There is a slight change in
the starting and closing time of
school this year. Because of the
new six period day at the high
school, we also had to alter our
schedule. School will begin at
8:00 instead of 7:55 and the bus-
es will run at 2:10 instead of
2:30. Walkers will be dismissed
at 2:15.
Children will need supplies
the first day of school so here are
a few suggestions. Anything else
they might need, the teachers will
send a list home. They will need
pencils, crayons, glue, scissors,
erasers, and a box to hold these
things. Please label them with
their name. This should be suffi-
cient for the time being. Lunch
prices are the same $1.25 and
40t.
All summer long, people have
asked me, "Are you ready for
school to start back?" I had to
truthfully answer, 'Yes, I am."
