Tornadic winds whipped through Wewa-

The destructive winds leveled trees and

Several homes and roofs 'were damaged


from the dancing wind shear cloud which
seemed to touch down in a location, lift upand
go a few feet before it touched down again.
The storm erupted in, the late afternoon in a
torrential rainstorm, accompanied by heavy
thunder and lightning.
Harrison said most of the damage to build-

ditch which surrounded the back
side of the Subdivision. 'We can't
accept that one because there
isn't easement enough for us to
get equipment in to maintain the
ditch," Lester said. Nelson agreed
with Lester and said citizens of
Gulf Aire were not asking the
Couftty to accept responsibility
for this ditch.
All members of the Board
agreed to take on the responsibili-
ty for the roads and ditches, ex-
cept Nathan Peters. Peters said
he was not in favor of obligating
taxpayers' money to maintain the
roads and streets for the Subdivi-
sion.
Nelson said, 'We're consider-
,able taxpayers In Gulf County.
Last year, our area paid over
$100,000 in ad valorem taxes."
Peters still objected.
COMPLAINT
Bobby Plair, director of the
volunteer extrication squad'flled
a complaint with Chairman Billy
Traylor.
Plair said his squad provides
the service of extrication at no

rescue to6ls. "Gulf Pines is billing
these people for the service along
with the ambulance service," Plair
said. 'They're billing for a service

Traylor appointed commis-
sioners Ed Creamer and Al Ray,

Star Provided
With Erroneous
Information
Stanley Hobbs, director of
the Apalachicola Weather Bu-
reau station informed The Star
after last week's edition had
come out that the newspaper
had been given some incorrect
information concerning the
closing of the station.
The station is not closing
before December, 1996 or Janu-
ary, 1997. It will not close urrtil
certain communications ar-
rangements have been made
and the area covered by more
sophisticated equipment which
is not installed as yet and is
not scheduled for installation
until 1995.
The station is still open 24
hours a day, as it has becn.in
the past.
Hobbs said the information
we had been furnished was in
error on these two points. The
information received by The
Star said the station was being
closed January 1, 1993 and was
operating only eight hours a
day.

fishertnen who fish on the Cape.
"It would block it off to vehicles
and fishermen would have to
walk at least amile to their fish-

The Air Force "solution" to
the protection problem didn't go
over very well with members of
the Commission, who intend to
discuss the matter with 'I)rndall

The Cape San Blas stretch of
the south Gulf County beaches is-
one of the most popular fishing
spots along the coast. The Air

beach, is near the old Coast

from the Cape.

The Commission accepted the

phase of Gulf Aire Subdivision,
for maintenance, Tuesday, after
Marshall Nelson, representing the
homeowners in the Subdivision,
made a presentation to the Board
asking them to do so.
Nelson said they had been
told about two years ago the
County would accept them if cer-

them up to specifications. Nelson
said, "After spending about

Keith E. Wilson, 11, 25, of Route One, We-
wahitchk;*, was killed instantly in a collision
between the automobile which he was driv-
ing and a log truck on County. 886 early
Tuesday morning.
Wilson is the second traffic fatality on
Gulf County roads this year.
Highway Patrol records say the fatal
crash happened at 7:15 a.m. Eastern Time,
about a half mile north of the Overstreet.
bridge.
Wilson was travelling north on County
386 in a 1985 Mercury, when he veered over
into the southbound lane into the path of a.
1990 Mack log truck, which was headed


south, driven by Freddie E. Branch, 34, of
Wewahitchka. Branch attempted to evade
Wilson's car by going off on the shoulder, but
the car struck the rear wheels of the empty
log truck and destroyed the entire left side of
the car.
The Highway Patrol report stated the
truck was inside his lane when the crash oc-
curred.
The Patrol spokesman said no charges
were being filed at this. time and It doesn't
appear there will be. Cpl. Upchurch, homi-
cide investigator and Trooper D. E. Grice in-

Space Cadets

After a long wait, Gulf County is finally going to get the activ-
ity going which will launch it into the rocket age, for real.
Saturday, August 22, a 10-foot-long rocket will be launched
from Cape San Blas 200,000 feet- into the air to conduct an
ozone experiment and study. Florida State University will be
lighting the fuse'for the research study shot.
The shot is the first in a series to be activated by the meteor-
ologists from FSU, with more to follow from other universities.
The traffic will be sparse at the Cape in the beginning, but is
sure to accelerate as the interest in space grows and the study of
the atmosphere continues to monitor such things as the ozone
layer and Its continued health.
Port St. Joe is in a unique position for the space activity. At
the beginning of this program, the Gulf County site was chosen
for the sub-orbital experiments because of its unique location.
There is a narrow path at the launch site with no obstructions in
the way of the falling rockets. Only at the Cape can that situa-
tion be found, so we get the space business.
Even so, fear of harming a stray turtle or two, or a nesting
bird, or otherwise interfering with the natural habits of these an-
imals, has delayed the first shot for more than a year. Now that
the matter is cleared to the satisfaction of everybody, the activity
will proceed.
The "activity" will not be all that hectic at the Cape. There
will be comings and goings by people wishing to launch a shot,
but there will be no hustle and bustle of a Cape Canaveral. It
puts us sort of in the position of a bat boy. We're experiencing
the excitement by our close proximity to the action, but we're
not quite in the game.
Florida's space operations people are high on the Cape San
Blas site as the 'place of the future for private launches. The
smaller rockets used for scientific purposes can find an outlet
here they wouldn't be able to find anywhere else.
Look for the future. There will come a time when you may
see a story in the newspapers carrying a dateline of "Cape San
Blas". Not quite as sophisticated as "Cape Canaveral", but we'll
take it!
Yessir, we're finally in the space cadet business.


Chancellor to the Defense
At last, a major newscaster uttered a few words in defense of
President George Bush, when John Chancellor said after the
NBC News the other night the world economic situation was not
Mr. Bush's fault and it was unfair to the man to saddle him with
the blame for that problem.
He said Bush was also not to blame for the national debt, ei-
ther. It was here when he became President and it will be here
when he leaves office, whenever that might be.
It amiuses us for political wags to gefT-o a microphone and
carry on about how ineffective the sitting president is and then
think he was effective enough to persuade Congress to pass bills
which caused us this many problems.
A man this persuasive is pretty effective, as we see it.
Another thin-gwhich irks us is the media thinking the way a
fellow spells "potato" has anything to do with the caliber of a
man to- be Vice-President. We had rather trust our future to a
man who spells "potato" "P-o-t-a-t-o-e," than have a commenta-
tor pontifically "protect" our right to free speech by defending the
sale of Ice-T"s latest rap record, as being an expression of free
speech.
Bill Clinton and Albert Gore are both fine young men. But so
were Ronald Reagan, Jimmy Carter, Gerald Ford, John Kennedy,
Dwight Eisenhower, Harry Truman, etc. before them. We're will-
ing to concede that maybe Richard Nixon wasn't.
I We give too much credit to our President for performance or
rion-performance. He didn't pull a lever and get ius in the eco-
riomic doldrums. Look about you. The whole world is in the
same fix. We're probably the best off of all nations. Again, look at
the news media. There is violence all over, except that in most
places it is worse than in the U.S. There are no trains, buildings,
schools, or public gatherings terrorized by bombs in the United
States. We're fouling our world, but the United States is doing
more about correcting that situation than any other nation in
the world. Look at Newsweek magazine of last week. See how
the government of Somalia is withholding shipments of food
from starving women and children and consider it as something
entertaining watching them beg for relief from starvation. Then
judge how our nation treats its poor and hungry.
We can't give the President credit, nor can we castigate him
for our problems which are worldwide. We can only blame our-
selves.

"Kes, this is stupid!"
I couldn't answer.
"This is not football!" Ricky
Gene had about had it. I wanted
to tell him to hang in there, we
had to be near the end of this,
but I was working so hard to
catch my breath I couldn't get
any words out.
"Kes? you o.k.?"
I did manage to nod up and
down.
We were about twenty min-
utes into our first ever, real, offi-
cial football practice. We'd been
in the seventh grade for two
whole days.
"I went to watch Prentiss Ray
every game last year," Yogi was
on my other side, and speaking
between deep breaths, "the high
school team never did anything
like this."
"Maybe this is why Coach
Campbell is still coaching seventh
grade football."
'Yeah, he didn't get the head
job with the Green Bay Packers
so he's taking it out on us."
We quit talking and "got on"
with our stepping. It didn't really
seem all that bad at first. Coach
Campbell lined us up along the
first seat in the football bleachers

Ricky Gene looked startled,
'Yes, sir."
'"We're going to be in better
shape, aren't we Mr. Stafford?"
'Yes, sir."
'"We're going to have a great
attitude while we're getting ready
- Mr. Stafford!?"
'Yes, sir!"
Ricky Gene and I were on our
third lap when Yogi caught up.
"Boy, Rick, you really straight-
ened him out."
Two days later we got our
pads. I didn't think about all that
equipment weighing so much-
"Well, there's one good thing,"
Yogi was adjusting his shoulder
pads, "no way Frankenstein is go-
ing to make us 'step up' with all
this stuff on."
"Good afternoon, men,, you
look like football players today.
Let's hit the bleachers. Mr. Mayo,
you run laps."
By my Junior year in basket-
ball I could step up and down all
day long. I didn't like it any better
but my body had grown accus-
tomed to the grind. And I guaran-
tee you, we were in better shape
than any of those boys down at

first step. Then we stepped back
down.
"Now with the left foot."
Back up we went. And back
down. And back up. And back
down. Right foot, left foot,
right....... About 5 minutes into
this and my feet begin to pick up
some serious weight. Five more
minutes and my breathing be-
came a little ragged.
Hollis Mayo missed a step
and caught his knee on the edge
of the concrete step. He was 6 or
7 people down from me but I saw
the blood shooting out of his leg. I
quit talking and went to concen-
trating.
"As soon as we stop this,"
Ricky was talking on the up step,
catching his breath on the down-
stroke, "I'm going to tell that idi-
ot......that I came to play foot-
ball......not bounce up and

straighten him out on.......a
couple of things......."
They let Hollis stop. I was
thinking maybe I could just slip a
little bit, bruise my knee but not
cut it wide open, when the whis-
tle blew.

A Long Life Spent Together Takes A Lot of Work and Understanding


LAST WEEK, AS we were lay-
ing out the Society page, there
were stories of two young couples
who were making plans to get
married. No doubt, it was with
much anticipation and expecta-
tion these two young couples
were making plans for the biggest
step thus far in their lives.
Most people planning to get
married, study that move in their
lives very carefully and weigh the
matter thoughtfully. It is a com-
mitment. It is a life-time commit-
ment, or should be, at any rate.
On the same page was a story
about a couple who was celebrat-
Ing their 70th anniversary of be-
ing husband and wife. Mr. and
Mrs. C. G. Costin were doing
something very few people get an
opportunity to do. I couldn't help
wondering if either of the couples
planning to get married would
have the opportunity to observe
their 70th anniversary a long
time in the future. I'm sure they"
have every intention of doing just
that, but the truth is, the odds


Etaoin Shrdlu


by Wesley Ramsey


are stacked greatly against them.
Odds are that they won't even
live for 70 more years, much less
celebrate any anniversaries. If
they live that long the old menace
of marriages these days-divorce-
-has a better than even chance of
claiming what is starting as a
happy life for both couples.
What can they do about that?

DIVORCE HAS NOW become
as common as getting married; or
half as common, anyhow. People
who marry today are just as likely
to get a divorce from each other
as they are to stay together.
I'm drawing near my 50th an-


niversary, and even that isn't so
common anymore. More people
are living long enough, but not as
many remain married for 50, or
even 70 years.
I know the Costins have ben-
efitted from living together for 70
years. Divorce must be an awful
thing to have to go through.
There is all kind of stress in-
volved. The Costins missed hav-
ing to endure that stress and I'm
sure their children felt a great
deal of stability in having their
parents live a long, happy life to-
gether.
That long life has been largely
healthy for them also. Mr. Costin,


in his middle 90's is still as spry
as a rooster and gets around like
a man of 50. Do you suppose a
lack of stress at home, a home
life of stability and trust had any-
thing to do with that?

I ATTENDED THEIR recep-
tion Sunday, in that storm we
had in the afternoon, aAd they
were just as happy as they could
be, greeting their friends, even
though it was raining outside.
Their friends came out in
droves for the occasion, too, in
spite of the heavy rain, the light-
ning and the thunder. Evidence
that good friends can be counted
on in spite of bad, stormy weath-
er.
I talked with one couple who
drove down from Blountstown for
the reception and he told of hav-
ing to drive through a driving
rainstorm all the way. "We had to
drive 35 miles per hour most of
the way," he said. Never a
thought of just not coming but


maybe calling, instead.
The house was filled with
well-wishers all afternoon long.
This proves, also, that people ap-
preciate people who have stability
in their lives and learn to appre-
ciate each other.
Notice I didn't say, "Love". I'm
sure Cecil and Lola Costin love
each'other, but so do those two
young couples who announced
they would get married, in last
week's paper.
Do you thing maybe love
grows stronger with appreciation?

A COUPLE OF YEARS ago,
Mrs. Costin was honored by the
Chamber of Commerce, with des-
ignation as its "Citizen of the
Year" for her many years of giving
away groceries, clothing and
money to help those who couldn't
help themselves. There was no
pretense. The people needed what
she had and she gave it.
How many husbands today
would agree to their hard earned


money being spent to help oth-
ers? There would at least be a
small portion of resentment.
Maybe they would agree to a
portion being given away, but not
as much as Mrs. Costin gave
away.
And how many women would
put up with a work-a-holic like
Cecil Costin has been all his life?
Neglect would be their most fre-
quent complaint.
But the pair have agreed to
assist each other in their endeav-
ors. They have been regular at-
tenders of the First Baptist
Church, where Mr. Costin was
Sunday School Superintendent
for years too numerous to men-
tion. The couple have been pillars
of the church for all their married
lives. I suppose that has as much
as anything to do with their long
together.
I know the entire community
Joins us in wishing them a
hearty, "Congratulations!"

Shad

Phantry
By
Wendell Campbell


Somebody, Come


Get This Dog
Let the records show that I'm a lover of animals from way, way
back. I was raised around animals. At our home, Rt. #3, Box 486,
Pensacola, FL (no zip code), we had horses we used to plow and
ride, cows we milked, chickens that laid eggs and sometimes in the
frying pan, hogs that made bacon and ham, dogs that stood guard
at night and cats that served no useful purpose that I can remem-
ber. We did have a couple of goats at one time, but my sister, Mel-
ba, took care of that situation, but that's another story.
I do love animals.. in their place. Dogs and cats, in my opin-
ion, belong outside, in a dog house or cat house (a little house with
a blanket inside). It doesn't bother me if they come inside as long as
they have had a good bath and wear a diaper and don't sniff too
much. Or, as long as it's your house.
Dogs are my favorites. I really believe that a dog can be a man's
best friend. Just think about it. A good dog will stick by you what-
ever you do, good, bad or indifferent. All they require is food, water,
a little flea treatment every now and then and a pat on the head oc-
casionally. And a dog can be trained to do almost anything and
they rarely talk back.
Our current dog is named Duke. Duke Campbell. Ole Duke was
one phone call away from being turned over to the dog catcher
when I drove to Indian Pass and brought him home.
Duke and I became fast friends about two months after I picked
him up after I scolded him for trying to bite me. After, that, Duke
seemed to realize who bought the dog food, flea spray and paid ill
the vet bills. Dogs are smart. Duke and I haven't had a cross word
since then; that is up until about four weeks ago.
It was a Saturday, I think, when Duke came home with another
dog in tow. At first I thought it was a female "junk-yard" dog, but on
closer inspection I realized it was a slim, some-kind-of-hunting dog
that I had never seen before, and it was a male.
There was no doubt about the hunting part in him the first
time I heard him bark. His bark is not a bark, but more of a bray
that sounds like some of the dogs I've heard on TV that chase fox.
The dog it brownish, spotted black and looks similar to a Grey-
hound. And try as I have, there is no way to fatten him. He eats and
eats and eats, but doesn't gain weight. He's a friendly dog, but, is a
little skittish for some reason. My guess is that he hasn't been out
much.
When he arrived at our house he had a rope attached to his col-
lar that had either been broken or chewed off and the broken end
was dragging the ground. I reasoned that Duke had something to
do with that. Duke isn't gay, mind you, he just loves friends
around.
For lack of any name, we started calling him "Stray." Stray has
been with us for over a month now and has made himself right at
home. He stands guard at night, chases the cat and does all the
things a good dog is supposed to do at home. He hasn't bitten any-
one yet, but he did chase a couple of bicycle riders down the street
a time or two. Stray is also good at chasing trucks that make a loud
noise and have a dog in the back. Stray and Duke "double-chase"
almost every truck that comes by now, dog in the back or not.
I'm sure old Stray is someone's pride arid joy. There's no doubt
that he's a good hunting dog and belongs to someone who needs
him to point some elephants or watermelons or such. So, please
come and get himl
If you don't, I might call the Franklin County Humane Society
and they might come get him and will probably make a lap-dog out
of him.
And wouldn't that be a waste of good hunting flesh!

the table until the veins in your
neck and forehead bulge. Such
an incident took place on the
front page of the News Herald on
August 12, 1992. And, as is usu-
ally the case the controversy cen-
tered on basic community values.'
More specifically, the 'issue
that embroils. the participants is
the size of Gulf County class-
rooms, the number of available
teachers, and the resultant quali-
ty of education provided to our
children.
Like at least one of the partic-
ipants, my children attended lo-
cal schools. Their mother and I
have walked the halls of the
schools, we've had an opportunity
to meet their teachers, and we
have been in the room when Mr.
Wilder has been asked hard ques-
tions.
For those 'who are not aware,
it is possible to report that our
* superintendent does not blink of-
ten. For him, financial responsi-
bility is the result of harsh reali-
ty. Those who continue to expect
a free lunch can expect to be paid
with I.O.U.'s.
The truth is we live in a time
of tremendous change and it is fi-
nancial irresponsibility that has
brought about this change. Those
Who continue to offer emotional
arguments in an emotional way
can expect the downward spiral
in our quality of life to continue.
Each of us worries about our
kids. We worry about them before


they are born and we worry about
them after they are born. And you
can believe that there is a lot to
worry about: but we do our best
and we have an opportunity to
give them a nudge in the right di-
rection, the good parents don't
hesitate. Because, heaven knows
they need all the help they can
get.

Social Security

to Distribute Fo
A joint project to distribute
cost-saving and nutritional food
information to elderly Supple-

USDA's Food and Nutrition -Ser-

from field offices in the southeast

This information will enhance
the understanding of nutritional
issues and improve eating habits
of SSI recipients by providing eco-

southeastern states. A series of
brochures, "Making Your Food

SSI recipients. Publications titled

INSURANCE BIDS
Doug Birmingham, financial
officer for the County Clerk's of-
fice, made recommendations for
insurance coverage in various op-
erations. He recommended giving
the Workmen's Compensation
business to Costin Insurance of
Port St. Joe. 'They bid $76,096 to
furnish coverage. This is about
$40,000 less than the next bid for
the same coverage. Since Work-
man's Compensation insurance is
based on payroll, it is subject to
change. However, this premium
was figured on the present pay-
roll," Birmingham said.,
Other large premiums were:

Insurance Dividend


Hoax Plag
A GI insurance dividend hoax
that first appeared more than 30
years ago continues to plague vet-
erans.
The U.S. Department of Vete-
rans Affairs (VA) insurance center
in Philadelphia reports it is re-
ceiving numerous applications
each day for a non-existent divi-
dend.
For many years the principal
victims of the rumor were World
War II and Korean Conflict vete-
rans, who were told that the VA.
was sending a check for hun-
dreds of dollars a so-called in-
surance dividend to any vete-

Adetsn


If your child has a tooth-
ache, get him or her to a dentist
immediately. If this is not practi-
cal, a proper dosage of aspirin
will help make him feel more
comfortable until you can get to
the dentist. However, you
should take precautions when
administering aspirin.
Make sure your child takes
the aspirin with enough water to
prevent upsetting his stomach.
Aspirin is a systemic drug; it re-
lieves pain only after it has en-
tered the bloodstream. So make
sure it gets all the way down
with plenty of water. Never
place the tablet on the painful
tooth or on the gum or let 'it dis-
solve in his mouth and ask him
to swish it around the aching

Causey and Whitehurst were

Thomas Tells Rotary "Serving In Government Has Changed"


Senator Pat Thomas of Quin-
cy spoke to the Rotary Club
Thursday, paying a visit to a new
part of his district. As the Senator
said, 'This is like a homecoming.
You have been out of my district
for 10 years and it's nice to have
you back."
Thomas explained the Sena-
torial districts were drawn up 10
years ago by the Dean of the Sen-
ate then, Senator Dempsey Bar-


ron. "He drew hiem to suit his
purpose then, and spread my dis-
trict out across the Panhandle all
the way to Pace and Pensacola. I
had to drive from Tallahassee to
Pensacola to visit my district.
Well, I am scheduled to be the
President of the Senate next year
and I had the privilege of vefo on
the Senate districts this year in
reapportionment, so I took my old
district back again," the Senator


quipped.
"It isn't as much fun to serve
in the Senate now as it was 10
years ago,"'Thomas said. "Stress
and frustrations over big govern-
ment and its requirements have
taken most of the fun out of being
a Legislator. Still I enjoy the work,
and hope I can continue to serve
for a while."
The Senator said that most of
the problems are caused by the


Department of Community Affairs
with their comprehensive plan
and the Department of Environ-
mental Regulation. "Part of the
problem," he said, "was that the
people of these departments
would quit after about a year and
people like St. Joe Paper Compa-
ny and the City of Port St. Joe
would have to explain their prob-
lem all over again and provide an-
other pile of statistics to verify
their position.
"We hope that problem is


licked to some degree. Those de-
partments had a turnover of per-
sonnel of something like 91% a
year," the Senator said.
"Answering complaints and
trying to straighten out problems
caused by the comprehensive
plan on a local level and prob-
lems caused by DER takes up
about 75% of my time," Thomas
said.
"I hope I can be remembered
as a Legislator who TRIED to
make government more simple;


more realistic. I have just about
lost hope of succeeding in these
endeavors," he continued.
The Senator told the Rotary
Club that there is a hostility
against government today. 'That
includes local, state and national
government, I hope to be instru-
mental in turning that attitude
around."
John Delorme was Initiated
as a new member of the club.
Ben Hodges of Jonesboro,
Georgia, was a guest.

Sea Turtles

Hatching

In Area
It was Monday evening, Au-
gust 3, when turtle nest volunteer
Pafsy Johnson's first-ever turtle
nest began to hatch, and she was
out of town for the big event.
When it was laid nine weeks
earlier on Cape San Bias, half the
eggs were eaten before sunrise by
coyotes or foxes, leaving about 50
eggs. Later, volleyball players ig-
nored her sign and'barricade and
had to be reprimanded by a depu-
ty.
The next weeks went by with-
out incident.
When the hatching occurred,
local residents tried to keep the
ghost crabs from killing the tur-
e* ties on their 80-foot dash to the
Gulf of Mexico, About 30 made it;
roughly a fourth of the original to-
tal. If two make it to adulthood,
the nest will have been a success.
Many will be devoured by hungry
fish and other predators in the
water.
This was the first of 90 nests
that have been wired and staked
from land predators in Gulf
County; double last year's total.
These 90 nests represent about
70 percent of all known nests
found; the. other 30 percent fell
victim to the nightly coyote pa-
trol. The remainder of the nests
will hatch on into late October
and a few are still being laid.
If you happen to see a nest
hatch usually at night do
not touch or help the hatchlings
unless they are in danger of going
the wrong way or- if the .ghost
crabs begin to kill them. Since
only permitted volunteers can le-
gally handle baby turtles, try -to
contact one (the phone number is
on the nest sign). If no one can be
reached, gently carry the turtle to
about 10 feet from the Gulf and
let him go. It is important they
make this crawl as this imprints
the beach's chemistry onto his
brain. Females in: the future will
4 return to the same beach they
were hatched upon. Also, any
lights near a nest should be
blackened about eight weeks after
the lay date as baby turtles will
follow the brightest light. Before
man and electricity came along,
the brightest light was the moon-
light on the Gulf which led the
way. Flashlights should not be
used to observe the hatching as
this totally disorients them.
If you are interested in be-
coming a summer-long nest vol-
unteer next year, contact Herman
Jones at 647-8245.
Although the Loggerhead is
the most common sea turtle in
Florida, four additional species
have been recorded as nesting on
Florida beaches.
Green Turtle
This sea turtle gets its name
from the greenish color of its
body fat. The Green turtle is a,
medium to large sea turtle with a
smooth olive-brown shell marked
with darker streaks and spots,
and a single pair of scales on the
front of the head. They are
unique among sea turtles in that
they are plant-eaters. The Green
turtle is found in parts of the At-
lantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans,
mostly in the tropics. Small num-
bers of Green turtles have now
been nesting in Florida and that
number seems to be increasing.

Consider Surroundings When Selecting Landscape Plants


The first step in selecting
plants for your landscape is to
study the characteristics of the
planting site such as the amount
of sun or shade, salt spray, water
drainage, soil type and the degree
of acidity or alkalinity of the soil.
Although all of these characteris-
tics are important when selecting
plants, the amount of sun or
shade on your planting site can
be crucial. Some plants require
full sun most of the day while
others can't tolerate direct sun-
light. As a general rule, plants
with colorful flowers and foliage
thrive in sunny areas. However,
there are many attractive plants
that grow best in areas receiving
several hours of morning or after-
noon sun and some which thrive
in areas receiving no direct sun-
light.
One plant ideally suited for
shady, moist areas is Frasia ja-
ponica. While this evergreen plant
doesn't ordinarily flower, its lush,
large, tropical foliage can make it
a real accent plant for a shady lo-
cation.
Ardisia crenata or the Christ-
mas berry is an evergreen shrub

that has small white flowers. in.
the spring with brightly colored
red berries through the winter.
This plant ordinarily grows to a
height of three to four feet and
can be grown in a container or in
the ground in shady locations.
The dwarf variety, Japonica, is a
low growing plant that is an ex-
cellent ground cover' for shaded
areas. It ordinarily doesn't flower
or produce berries.
The holly fern is an excellent
plant for moist, shaded areas. It
is evergreen and withstands ex-
tremes in temperatures. It may be
used where a ground cover is

Keep Bag Lunches Cool


When packing a bag lunch
that will be eaten within several
hours, a small freeze-pack insert
in an insulated bag is probably
all that's. necessary to keep the


food cold. However, be sure: to
put the lunch bag in the coolest
place possible; don't leave it in di-
rect sun or in the car.


State Sec.

Visits with-

Sr. Citizens

Recently the Secretary of the
Department of Elder Affairs for
the State of Florida, Bentley Lip-
scomb, visited here in Port St.
Joe with the senior citizens. In
-the photo at right he is shown
speaking to the assembled group
*at the Gulf County Senior Citi-
zens Center.
Some of the topics addressed
were plans to improve the quality
of life for older Floridians by pro-
viding services to enable senior
citizens to remain in their homes.
Lipscomb visited with Port St.
Joe's senior citizens as part of a
swing throughout the entire state
to learn about the problems faced -
by the elderly.

But in general, Green turtle pop-
Ulations are being depleted as a
,result of exploitation for eggs,
meat, leather and shells. Many
juveniles are also drowned each
year in shrimp trawls.
Kemp's Ridley Turtle
The Kemp's Ridley is the
most 'endangered, of., all. the sea'
-turtles. This.-.small turtle with .a.
)broad whellranrges in' length from
about 22 to 30 inches and weighs
85 to 100 pounds. The Kemp's
Ridley feeds in inshore waters
along the Gulf coasts of Mexico,
Texas, Louisiana and Florida. Fe-
males nest on a single remote
.sandbar beach on' the Gulf coast.
>of Mexico near Rancho Nuevo.
,There are now only about 1,000
nests made annually by about
400 females. These turtles have
been extensively exploited
through the years for their eggs.
The continued loss of adults and
juveniles in shrimp trawls also
contributes to their decline. De-
spite years of protection the
Kemp's Ridley" populations shows
little sign of recovery.
Hawksbill Turtle
The Hawksbill turtle is a very
agile, small to .medium-sized sea
turtle with a bird-like beak from
which it gets its name. The shell
of this turtle is valued for its use


in jewelry and ornaments and be-
cause of this, it is hunted
throughout the world. It is illegal
to import parts of any sea turtle
into the United States, unless you
possess a federal permit for scien-
tific study. The Hawksbill is
found in tropical waters, and
nesting occurs near feeding
grounds. Only a few nests have
been seen In Florida, but Hawks-
bills have been observed in reefs
near the Florida coast and in- the
Keys. Hawksbills are hunted for
eggs, leather, and meat, but
mostly for their shells.
Leatherback Turtle
The Leatherback turtle is the
largest and most unusual of the
sea turtles. Individuals can reach
six feet in length and weigh up to
1,300 pounds. This turtle is
mostly black with white spots,
and has eyes that are almost ver-
tical. The thick and oily shell of
the Leatherback is distinguished
from other species by the seven
longitudinal keels that divide its
back into six sections. This. spe-
cies' range is throughout the At-
lantic, Pacific and Indian ,Oceans
with a few Leatherbacks nesting
each year in Florida. Estimated
total number of nesting females is
100,000. The primary threat to:
the Leatherback is egg collecting.

Spaceport Attracts Industry to Panhandle


The Spaceport Florida Au-
thority has announced that Air
Products and Chemicals Inc. has
confirmed plans to develop a mul-
ti-million dollar liquid hydrogen
production facility in the city of
Pace in Northwest Florida's Santa
Rosa County. The state-of-the-art
facility will be completed in 1994,
will employ 30-40 people, and will
be capable of producing up to 30
tons of liquid hydrogen per day
for use as a propellant for launch
vehicles and for other government
and commercial uses.
"We are pleased to welcome
Air Products' liquid hydrogen fa-
cility toiPace and Northwest Flori-
'da." said Fl6rida Representative
Bo Johnson, whose district in-
cludes Pace. "Our state has clear-
ly established an attractive envi-
ronment for space-related
industry, and I am excited that
Northwest Florida will now be a
direct beneficiary of our nation's
space program."

Air Products identified North-
west Florida as a target location
for the liquid hydrogen facility in
December 1991 after signing an
agreement with the Spaceport Au-
thority to jointly pursue its devel-'


opment in the state. Air Products
and the Spaceport Authority are
finalizing a further agreement
that would designate a portion of
the Pace property as a Spaceport
Florida Territory.


'This agreement will further
expand Florida's role in providing
support to our nation's space
launch activities," said Ed
O'Connor, Executive Director of,
the Spaceport Authority.


12 Year Old Mystery Solved on


'Pirates Lady" Disappearance


The Florida Marine Patrol
(FMP) released their findings on
the fate of the motor vessel the
"Pirates Lady." The 75-foot vessel,
-,with two crewmen, Capt. Anthony
Latusa and David Diecidue, dis-
appeared in 1977, while on a trip
from New Orleans, Louisiana, to
Clearwater. It was last reported'
sighted off Apalachicola, on Janu-
ary 27, 1977. The vessel was lo-
cated through information sup-
plied to the FMP by two
commercial divers who had video-
taped a dive on an aluminum hull
vessel they had found in 92 feet
of water approximately 48 miles
off-shore from Carrabelle.
According to Major J.K.


Taylor Sharing in
Maritime Exercise
Navy Petty Officer 1st Class
Robert L. Taylor, son of Robert L.
and Zola L. Taylor of Route 1, We-
wahitchka, is currently partici-
pating in a five-nation maritime
exercise aboard the submarine
USS Pasadena, homeported in
San Diego, California.
RIMPAC (Rim of the Pacific)
'92, the 13th in a series of regu-
larly scheduled exercises in the
Eastern Pacific Ocean between
Hawaii and California first began
in 1971. This year's participants
include more than 45 ships, 200
aircraft and 20,000 sailors, air-
men, Marines and Coast Guards-
men from Canada, Australia, The
Republic of Korea, Japan and the
United States.
The exercise was designed to
improve the tactical capabilities
of all participating units.
The 1984 graduate of Port St.
Joe High School joined the Navy
in July 1984.


Thompson, spokesman for the,
FMP, the vessel sank due to a fire
originating in Athe engine room.
"Basically they had-a boating ac-
cident," said. Thompsomn, -The- fire4j
was accelerated by, the 3000 gal-
Ions of fuel aboard and burned
with such intensity that all power;
was lost. This accounts for the
crews' inability to radio for help
or launch lifeboats."
The FMP investigation re-
vealed that the entire superstruc-
ture of the vessel was burned
away and parts of the aluminum
hull had melted.
"We have ruled out any foul
play in this investigation and
while no human remains were
found, we feel that the crew ei-
ther perished in the fire or from
hypothermia in the water," said
Thompson.

Heidi Wells
Attends Camp
Heidi Wells, a Girl Scout from
Port St. Joe, has just returned
from attending the One-Nighter
camp session at Girl Scout Camp
For All Seasons. The session was
open to Girls Scouts in the first,
second or third grade who had
never experienced camp before.
Heidi spent one day and night at
camp and took part in the regular
camp activities which included
singing, dancing, playing games,
swimming, and hiking. Through
these activities she found out
about all the fun a girl can have
at summer camp. She also spent
time "sharing nature with chil-
dren," as well as doing bubble
fun, and arts and crafts.
Camp For All Seasons is lo-
cated south of Tallahassee on
Lake Talquin.


The FMP coordinated me in-
vestigation with the Florida De-
partment of Law Enforcement,
Second Judicial Circuit State At-,
torney's Office, U.S. Bureau of Al-.
cohol and Tobacco, Franklin
County Sheriffs Office, Leon
County Sheriffs Office, and the
Florida State University Academic
Dive Program.


The lunch menu has been
announced by the Gulf County

You've just arrived home after
a hectic day only to be greeted by
lthe familiar chorus of "What's for
dinner?" Wistful memories of
meals by Mom creep in.
These days, who doesn't wish
for fast, convenient family meals
that are just as flavorful, nutri-
tious and satisfying as the ones
Mom prepared. Cooks-in-the-
know realize that it is possible to
preserve a taste of yesteryear and
still maintain today's fast-paced
lifestyle by relying on tasty and
versatile beef.
Both family and friends will
enjoy the home-style flavor of
Beef Steaks with Tangy Corn Rel-
ish. This meal has all the mak-
ings of a delicious, at-home meal
without the hassle of hours in the
kitchen.
Dinner couldn't be easier
with this one-skillet meal. Using
only eight ingredients, all of
which are readily available, this
dish is prepared in just 20 min-
utes.

Borrowed from our American
heritage, this tangy version of
corn relish features the addition
of red or green bell pepper, white
vinegar and ground red pepper,
making it a tempting change of
pace to your favorite steak din-
ner. All you need to complete the
menu is a mixed green salad with
your favorite salad dressing.
Guaranteed to impress, the next
time you're asked 'What's for din-
ner?", you'll be ready with the
perfect answer.

Beef Steaks with
Tangy Corn Relish
Total preparation and cook-
ing time: 20 minutes.
4 boneless beef chuck top blade
steaks, cut 1/2 inch thick
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
1/2 red or green bell pepper, cut
