FIFTY-FOURTH YEAR, NUMBER 52


10-Foot Sub-Orbital Rocket

Leaves Its Launch Pad

With A Roar and a Mighty...



Wh-o-o-sh!

"It did just what we wanted it to"


With a deafening roar and a
"Who-o-o-o-shl" into the cloudless
sky, Gulf County joined the rock-
et-launching community as Flori-
da's entry into the commercial
launch business.
The launch was planned for
8:30 a.m. Saturday, but the crew
was greeted by an overcast and
threatening sky. Finally, at 9:00
a.m., the sky began to clear and
the countdown began for a 10:00
a.m. launch. The launch button
was pressed and the small.sub-
orbital missile leaped from the
launching tube to initiate the
spaceport program. Actually the
program was ,launched in Mexico
a few months ago, while the
Spaceport people were awaiting
clearance of environmental conc-
ers on the Cape San Blas site.
It had been 20 years since
the rocket pad had experienced a
launch, but, as Executive Direc-
tor Ed O'Connel of Florida's
Spaceport program enthused,
"Everything went perfect. It went
just like we had planned."
Ed Ellegood, Spaceport's di-
rector of operations, said, "This is
better than waiting months and
years to get a shot off at Cape Ca-
naveral." Some scientific experi-
mental shots from the Cape have
at least a 10-year waiting period.
"WVe can have a launch in the air
with no more than six months
waiting time."
The civilian launch program
started in 1989, but ran into
funding problems with tight state
budgets.
The launch Saturday was


Space Director Ed O'Connell
sent aloft by Florida State Univer-
sity's Meteorological Department
to study the ozone layer. This was
the first time the ozone layer has
been tested from aloft. Previously,
all experiments had been done
with data taken on the ground.
The 10-foot rocket was car-
ried aloft a little more than a mile
by its booster rocket, before the
booster separated. The payload
then continued on to an apogee of
230,000 feet, taking measure-
ments of the atmosphere all the
way, before it started its slow de-
scent to earth, floating under-
neath a special balloon. The
small experimental instrument,
took measurements all the way
down.
The launch support hardware
was supplied by the Air Force out
of Tyndall Air Force Base. The
launch vehicles and launch tube,
were all portable.
Executive Director O'Conner
Said there Will probably be three
more launches between now and
spring, with the next launch
probably taking place in late Oc-
tober. "When we get started good,
we will probably launch as many
as three rockets on a week end,
scheduling activity at the Cape at
least once a month."'
So, after nearly three years
delay in securing environmental
approval to use the Cape San
Bias for launch activities, the pro-
gram seems to be off and run-
ning, with its initial launch per-
forming perfectly.


Photographers set up their cameras in anticipation of
the rocket shot.


Like the speed of a bullet, the small rocket took off just
like something which has its tail on fire_!


Election Day



Tuesday....

Polls In State and County

Will Be Open 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.


Election season will be over
for most of the candidates Tues-
day, when voters go to the polls
to make their choices in the first
primary election.
Both Democrats and Republi-
cans may cast their vote Tuesday,
but only for candidates of their
political party.
Tuesday's vote will narrow
the candidates number down to
no more than two for each office.
If one candidate in a particular
race gets 51% of the votes cast,
he will be a first primary winner
for his party's nomination.
Gulf County has the largest
number, ever, eligible to cast
their vote in this election season.
The County leads the state with
-99.67% of those eligible to vote,
registered. This boils down to
7,785 registered voters, Republi-
cans and Democrats.
In 1988, the County sent the
highest percentage of its regis-
tered voters to the polls of any
county in the state of Florida.
NOT ON BALLOT
Two of the most hotly con-
tested local elections either are
not on the ballot or will not be de-
cided until the general election on
November 3.
The office of Sheriff does not
even appear on Tuesday's ballot
due to the fact that Sheriff Harri-
son is a registered Republican
and his challenger, Waylon Gra-


ham, is a Democrat. Since nei-
ther has opposition in his own
party, they are declared the pri-
mary winners and will face each
other in the General Election.
Another race which will have
a decision delayed until Novem-
ber, will be the County Commis-
sioner from District Three. In-
cumbent Ed Creamer faces two
Democratic challengers in Mi-
chael Hammond and David
Young. The winner of that pri-
mary contest will meet Indepen-
dent candidate, Bill Quarles, in
November.
Other names appearing on
the ballot, include Bob Graham
and Jim Mahorner for U.S. Sen-
ate; Pete Peterson and Buster
Smith for U.S. Congressman;
Jack McLean and Pat Thomas for
State Senator.
In County elections, the line-
up is: Phyllis Beaman, Patricia
Blaschum and Cora Sue Robin-
son for Supervisor of Elections;
Jessie V. Armstrong, Bryant
Copeland, Martin [Buddy] Gay,
Mary Ellen Gortman, Sue McGill
and. Houston W. Whitfield,
County Commission, District
One; Ed Creamer, Michael L.
Hammond and David Young,
County Commission, District
Three; James Hanlon, Helen
Ramsey and Paul Sewell, School
(See ELECTION on Page 3)

Aid for

Homestead
The Kiwanis, Rotary, and
Lions clubs are combining their
efforts to assemble a truckload of
non-perishable food and other
items to be taken to Homestead.
This community spirit is not un-
known to Gulf County. Like the
Hurricane Hugo victims of 1989,
the Hurricane Andrew homeless
need our help.
St. Joe Forest Products Com-
pany is furnishing a semi-truck
to haul the supplies. The truck
will be parked at the Port St. Joe
Fire Station on Williams Avenue.
The three grocery stores in
town, Rich's IGA, Saveway, and
Piggly Wiggly, will add 20 percent
to the amount of Items purchased
from them to send to South Flori-
da. Please notify the cashier at
the time of checkout that the
items are being purchased for
hurricane relief.
Please bring non-perishable
foods, no fresh or frozen; bottled
water; bedding; animal feed; and
other items beginning Thursday.
The truck will pull out for Home-
stead on Monday, taking relief to
the many left homeless there.


County Hires Recycle Consulting Firm


County to Use
night's meeting. The County has
to pay to have them prepared for
placing in a landfill, used as fuel,
or any other use. The County set
a rate of $100 per ton for Gulf
(See COUNTY on Page 3)


The Gulf County Commission
employed a consulting firm Tues-
day night, to survey the County
and advise County and City gov-
ernment on ways to effectively
conduct their recycling program.
The firm is a subsidiary of
Waste Management, Inc., a na-
tion-wide firm.
The County and both incor-
porated cities are getting into re-
cycling, but it is on a tentative
basis. The County Commission
chairman, Billy Traylor, thinks all
three government entities would
be getting more economical re-
sults out of the program, if they
were coordinating their efforts to-
ward a single goal. The reason for
the fragmentary recycling pro-
gram is the lack of markets for
the products removed from the
solid waste stream.
Chairman Traylor said the
firm should be on the scene in
about a week. "They will be meet-
ing with Commissioners from the
County, Port St. Joe and Wewa-
hitchka and talking about the
most feasible methods for county-
wide recycling," Traylor said. -
Since the County and the Cit-


ies have almost been at odds over
the program, Chairman Traylor
talked his board into hiring the
experts in recovering waste in an
effort to come up with a program
which would head everyone in the


Entering the race for County
Commissioner of District 3 is

years, and then attended Auburn
University. Bill returned to Gulf
County in 1956 and worked for

now employed by the City of Port
St. Joe. Bill has, through the

Vote!!!

Tuesday is election day here and across Florida. Here in
Gulf, some 7,300-plus voters are eligible to cast their vote and
some 24 people who sincerely hope they exercise that privilege.
It would be terrible if they held an election and nobody came.
All that campaigning, all that pounding pavement, all that smil-
ing when the situation doesn't' call for it; down the drain with
nothing to show for it.
All the candidates have been working hard for this election.
Going door to door, calling on their constituents, in the heat, the
rain, braving biting dogs, doors slammed in their face, bending
of the candidates ear with a pet peeve. All that adds up to cam-
paigning, Gulf County style.
But going to the polls is something that none of us should
shirk. It's important. It's very important. It's imperative!
If you think government has become expensive and compli-
cated over the past four years, you haven't seen anything yet!
You just think the solid waste problem has gone away with the
designation of a private contractor to collect it from county resi-
dekices and haul it away from here for disposal. There is a grow-
ing expense of closing old landfills.
There is the matter of shrinking state financial participation
with increased state requirements of county government.
,.The government Boards of the future are going to have to
have something on the ball. We don't think just any Tom, Dick
or- Harry can do it. It's going to take continuation of effort to'
meet state and federal guidelines and being alert to the needs of
the; County and its citizens. In other words, being a County
Commissioner, or a School Board Member in the future, can't be
delegated to just anybody who happens to need a Job. We pay-
enriough for these positions to demand the very best performance
O i the job. The jobs need someone who can and will be present
when they are needed. No district can afford to have their repre-
seifitatives miss a meeting or two, nor can we afford to.
:- We hope you will vote Tuesday and before you vote you Will
take the time and effort to become reasonably informed.


Bush "Gooses" Convention

If President George Bush and Vice-President Dan Quayle are
as successful at boosting their lagging numbers at the polls as
they were in goosing up a lack-luster Republican Convention
Thursday night, they will be shoo-ins for the White House in No-
vember.
Things were admittedly not going too well as the Conventionm
progressed. People clapped and cheered, but they clapped and
cheered at the various speeches only with a half-hearted effort.
The delegates actually seemed.bored with the performance of the
speakers evidently designed to whip them .up into a fighting frn-
zy. Even the babies weren't awakened from their snoozes by the
cheering and the clapping.
Keynote speaker, Sen. Phil Gramm must have thought the
audience was asleep Tuesday night, as he attempted,to set the
stage for President Bush's appearance. He had some good points
to make, but admittedly his method of making those points
didn't carry much fire power .. ,
'-"Formet President iiRonaldReagan lit a short fuse with his ad-
Nress, but even he, and his enthusiasm, didn't suffice for the en-
tire Convention. When Reagan left the podium, the excitement
was over.
Then came Dan Quayle and George Bush on Thursday and
business picked up!
Dan Quayle set off a cacophony of cheers with his now-
fanous one-liner, "It is not just a difference between conserva-
tive and liberal. It is a difference between fighting for what is
S eight and refusing to see what is wrong."
With the crowd chanting, "Hit 'em a lick! Hit 'em a lick! Hard-
er! Harder!" George Bush "Hit 'em a lick! Hit 'em a lickl Harder!
Harder!" for nearly two hours, all to the ultimate delight of the
Republicans gathered in Houston, hungering for some exciting
rhetoric.
Calling for a reduction in taxes, coupled with reductions in
pending, Bush also made points by suggesting a box be placed
0n the tax returns to allow tax payers to designate 10% of their
iaxes to be used to reduce the national debt.
; Bush castigated Congress for all the nation's problems, to
the delight of the delegates.
George Bush pumped life back into the Grand Old Party, if
only for a short time. If the resuscitation administered by Bush
lasts long enough, he just might win re-election.
: .But, as it was with ,Clinton, it might just be the after conven-
tion;euphoria.


Come and Listen to My Story...


I


Ellie Mae Clampetl Yeeee
DOG-GEES. This could prove to
be a most interesting evening. I'd
never met an International screen
star before. What am I going to
say? I could tell her I'm a big fan
of the Beverly Hillbillies. Shucks,
I don't have to tell her that the
whole world is a big fan of the
-Beverly Hillbillies.
Maybe I could tell her about
Joe Galloway. Me and Joe back in
college had classes at 8:00, 10:00
and 11:00. The Hillbillies came on
at 9:00. Joe had this 13-inch
black and white........ Everyday at
8:59 I'd catch up with Joe as he
sprinted around All Saints Chap-
el. we'd' dash for McCrady Hall.
This was the fall of 1968. Joe


would adjust that set as best he
could and then say the same
thing near about everyday, 'We
don't dare miss an episode, they
are not going to show these re-
runs forever"
I enjoyed the Beverly Hillbil-
lies watching them as a kid but I
fell in love with Jed and Granny,
Jethro and Ellie Mae as a 20-
year-old college student. I was
away from home, studying, work-
ing, trying to survive. The Hillbil-
lies were a refreshing break, like
old friends who Just happen to
drop by. And they were sooooo
funny....... The doorbell would
ring and Granny would start
looking for "where that sound is
a'coming from."
"Granny, we ain't never going
to find it Every time we get close;
somebody comes to the door."
Joe and I would near 'bout
die laughing, the Latin test forgot-
ten, the loneliness not quite as
overpowering.........
Someone brought in a couple
of hot dogs. "Donna hasn't eaten.
ya'll can talk and eat at the same


time. She'll be in in just a min-
ute."
A hot dog. A HOT DOG! This
lady is famous She's the most fa-
mous person I'm ever going to get
to meet. And I'm suppose to say,
"Hi., I'm Kesley, you want a hot
dog?"
She was here to do a couple,
of benefits for the Taunton Family
Children's Home. She was receiv-
ing no pay. She must be O.K. And
I've heard some awful nice things
about her....... But I can't give
her a hot dogl
Maybe I could eat all of them
and tell her the roast duck and
crepe- Ellie Mae came through
the door! I tried to work myself
between her and the food.
We shook hands. She smiled.
And of course I didn't say noth-
ing. I was a'wanting to, but
wouldn't nothing come out
"Judge Taunton said you
were going to introduce me."
'Yes, ma'am. Miss Douglas,
(my voice at last) I've got to ask
you a question that I've been wor-
rying about for years. Did Jethro


finally make it as a brain sur-
geon?"
"I didn't come to -" she
caught the sparkle in my eye,.
"Actually he ends up In solid
rocket fuel propulsion."
Never banter with someone
smarter than you.
"Oh, hot dogs. I haven't eaten
all day." Folks, she fell upon
those hot dogs with gusto. I was
thinking I ought to tell her John-
ny Mize and Robert Vinson
cooked those dogs but Instead I
asked her why she would come
over 3,000 miles to this little
place to do a benefit
'The children." She wasn't
bragging, putting on or giving the
"right" answer. She was genuine.
'What would you like me to
say in your introduction."
"Say anything you'd like."
I looked at her closely. She
meant it. She wasn't into glowing
introductions about herself. It
was time for me to be honest.
"Miss Douglas, the most famous
person I've introduced before to-

'courageousHas A Big Job to Do But Tight Quarters for Its Crew
'y~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~sre any bra or butter. .. *! ; **.' *'* ''; ''


I HAD AN EXPERIENCE the
other week which was a first with
me, but I'm sure it was "old hat"
to you, old Navy salts. I took a vis-
iti to the Coast Guard Cutter,
courageouss" over, in Panama
C)ty and even had dinner on the
boat
Coast Guard boats offer some
tight quarters, but they have
amenities, too. They feed good
and they're air conditioned.
I went to visit the "Coura-
geous" with Dick Lamberson who
was dealing with the crew, along
'with some other amateur radio
people, to set up a MARS radio
connection for the crew to use in
calling home when they were off
on a cruise.
Those radio. types talked ra-
dfo in acronyms and abbrevia-
tions for about an hour and an
ensign showed me about the
boat.
When you walk through a
Cutter, you walk single file. When
you go up or down what they
identify as stairs, you step side-


ways, because the stairs are
nothing more than a permanently
placed ladder.. and they are nu-
merous.

WE WENT IN the radio shack
'and it was packed with equip-
ment. It was like stepping inside
a closet with radios lining the
wall on both sides. They had a
small table inside, with a copy
machine attached to the top. The
table took up all the spare space
in the room.
'The radio operator didn't get
out of his chair all the time we
were in the room. There were five
extra bodies squeezed in that


room and the operator didn't
have room to stand
There were no windows to the
room! Talk about claustrophobia
I asked him how he got out if the
boat started sinking. He pointed
to the wall, over behind a file cab-
inet and a heavy cabinet filled
with radios, and there was a port-
hole marked, "Exit". "I go through
there," he said.
It would have been just as
easy to go through the combina-
tion lock on the door, through the
narrow passageway we used com-
ing In, down the stairs, around
the comer and down another set
of stairs.


And, all the time you had to
concentrate on stepping on each
and every narrow stair tread.
THE "COURAGEOUS" had a
25 millimeter gun mounted on
the bow, which, seemed to me to
be pitifully small. Ensign Jones
said, "It's small, but it'll make a
BIG hole. Just don't get in front
of it when it's in action"
The "Courageous" has inter-
cepted its share of marijuana
runners, and has the insignia to
prove it Some 30 million pounds
this year alone. On its latest tour
of duty, it intercepted 208 Hai-
tians in one day, transporting
them back to Haiti. The 208 Hai-
tians were packed on the fan tail
and helicopter pad to the rear of
'the boat, with a tent thrown up to
keep the sun off them.
'We set up the tent, and
. rigged latrines to the rear of the
boat, and just had to make do
until we could get them back to
Haiti," he said. The Coast Guard
has about 38 Cutters patrolling


the neighborhood of Haiti and
thus far this year, they have in-
tercepted 38,000 and taken them
back to Haiti.

COMMANDER BOHNER,
skipper of the boat, said the
Coast Guard is the only branch of
the service which is not forcing
early retirement on its men. "In
fact, we're taking some of the
men who have been cut from the
other services," he said.
Bohner was a fine host and a'
credit to the Coast Guard. He
served us a "snack" of onion
soup, tossed, salad, baked potato,
grilled T-bone steak, LARGE
boiled shrimp and applesauce
cake.
"I suppose you eat like this*
every day in the Coast Guard," I
quipped.
A seaman, serving the meal,
with a perfectly straight face.
said, 'Yes sir! We sure do!"
There's no danger of them
getting fat, though. They didn't


serve: any bread or butter.

THEY WERE OUTFITTING
the boat to begin another "cruise"
in the Gulf and the Caribbean,
and were about ready to get un-
der way. By now, they are long
gone, and nobody knows where.
The least of the tools they will
have to work with when they get
there, is a helicopter landing pad
on the rear of the boat Like
everything else on board, it was of
a very abbreviated size. The "Cou-
rageous" is 208 feet long, carries
87 men and can cruise fast
enough to catch drug boats and
carries enough fuel to stay at sea
about a month. So, mostly what
the "Courageous" has in those
208 feet of boat, is diesel fuel.
I remarked that it must take
a very good helicopter pilot to
land on their small deck. Ensign
Jones said, 'The fellow who
guides him in is paid well to get
him down. He gets an extra $125
a month!"

I Saw It All On


The Radio...
There.is a current country song that, I believe, is called, "I Saw
It All On The Radio." It's a catchy little ditty about a young man's
life in the country when there was no television.
The song brings back memories of my youth in Ferry Pass, Flor-
ida, where I .grew up listening to the radio.
What really brought this to mind was a movie I tried to watch
with my wife and a couple of guests last night. I kept waiting for
something to happen (in the movie) and was still waiting when I fell
sound asleep. I didn't wake up until my wife shook me because, she
said, I was snoring so loud they couldn't hear the movie. Movies to-
day are either so dull they put me to sleep or so violent and nasty
that I -can't stand them.
But back to growing up with the radio.
It was a long time ago, I know, but I can remember it like it was
yesterday.- There was no air conditioning, no television and no
"many other things" we take for granted these days. But we had the
radio,, such as it was.
Back then (pay attention, children), believe it or not, there were
only a few stations on at night and (hold on to your hats, young
folks) there were no FM stations. As a matter of fact, there was no
FM, period: Nor was there stereo or Hi-Fi or anything else. A com-
pact disc was something found in a cow pasture on a hot day.
There was only AM radio, one dial and a knob that you turned
to the radio .station you wanted to listen to and hoped it wouldn't
fade out before your song or program was finished. You could hear
the commercials a lot better than what you wanted to hear, or,so it
seemed.
The program menu consisted mostly of soaps, baseball games,
news, children's programs (especially in the afternoon and on Sat-
urday mornings) and music. I know it will be hard for the younger
ones to, believe, but there was only popular music (Tony Bennett,
Roy Hamilton, Al Hibbler and such) and country music. And that
was back when country music was really country But rock n' roll
was just around the comer.
My favorite programs always came on when I had less time to
listen to them. For instance, "The Cisco Kid" always came on about
the same time my father came home from work and was ready to go
work in the fields. Following close behind Cisco was 'The Lone
Ranger."
Daddy would often say, "Boy, if you sit there much longer with
your head in that radio, it's going to grow to your ear." He never re-
alized what an education in imagination I was getting.
I can remember Cisco and Poncho, his trusty side-kick, chase
the bad guys up the ravine and shoot their guns out of their hands.
I could also see Roy Rogers on that beautiful horse, Trigger, over-
taking the bad guys and beating them up without ever getting his
hat knocked off. Later I would listen to a lot of music and dream of
that special girl the singers sang about so often.
And it was all on a wide screen and in living color.
I remember "Archie," "'The Shadow," "Amos n' Andy" and many,
many other programs I saw on our radio. And at night when I was
madly in love with life and growing up, I fell asleep listening to love
songs and dreaming about romance and becoming some beautiful
girl's hero.
My life with the radio was a beautiful life in my mind's eye and
stimulated my imagination to the limit. I went more places, did
more exciting thirngs, danced,with mpre beautiful girls and was the
biggest hero that ever lived, because Isaw It all on thee radio.
t You see, 1ldid get the beautiful girl ,

Peterson Meets


Gulf Supporters


Congressman Pete Peterson
paid a last-minute visit to Port St.
Joe and Gulf County Tuesday
morning, speaking to a group
gathered for a breakfast meeting
at J. Patrick's Restaurant.
Peterson pointed out: that
September 9, he and his wife
would be located at Americus Av-
enue, St. Joe Beach, for a few
days of rest after the campaign.
The Congressman has a vacation
home at St, Joe Beach.
Peterson said, in his cam-
paign rhetoric, "The only thing
I'm promising is that I will pro-
vide honesty, integrity and ac-
cessibility for you in Washington.
I have heard your input for the
past two years. I haven't always
taken your advice, but I listened
and considered it before making
my vote in Congress."
Peterson said the most im-
portant issues facing the nation
today are the economy, polariza- .
tion of its citizens and health
care.
'You, as tax payers pay only
one third of government income,
or $500 billion. The budget is
$1.5 trillion, which means bal-
ancing the budget is going to be a
task. Everyone is going to be hurt
by a balanced budget. We had
just as well face that fact. But a
balanced budget is necessary to
save our nation from bankrupt-
cy," he said.
Peterson said he was one of
the supporters of a balanced bud-
get amendment and he would be
again. "A balanced budget is go-
ing to hurt for a while. But, there
is no painless solution to our eco-
nomic problems." '
Another problem the Con-
gressman said is plaguing our na-
tion is polarization of the nation.
"We're either conservative or lib-
eral. There is very little in be-
tween. It is evident that both per-
suasions can't have their way.
There has to be some give on
both sides. We must do away
with the theme, nationwide, in
every facet of government, that if
I can't win, I'm going to stop you
from winning."
Another big problem is health
care. '"We don't have a health care
system. We have health care, but
no system. Our health care facili-
ties "Just grew" until they have
reached a condition the average
citizen can't afford anymore," the
Congressman said.
Peterson said he and other
Congressmen were working on a
health care plan,' which requires
health insurance companies to
make health insurance-available

at the same price to everybody. "It

Seafood: Get the Good

Without the Problems


An increasing number of
health conscious Americans are
consuming 'low fat seafood. How-
ever, as with other foods, seafood
can cause foodborne illness due
to microbial contamination. The
U.S. Food and Drug Administra-
tion inspects and analyzes sea-
food to help assure its safety. It
also recommends these steps to
take when handling and prepar-
ing seafood especially shellfish
- to further reduce your risk:

The Muscular Dystrophy Tel-
ethon will be held on September
6 and 7 to raise money to help

for Gulf County. There is a. need
for volunteers to help answer the
phones from Sunday, September
6 beginning at 8:00 p.m. to Mon-
day, September 7 at 1:00 a.m.

Storage
Seafood should always be re-
frigerated at 35 to 40 degrees
Fahrenheit until preparation
time. For added freshness and
safety, put wrapped fish on ice
when storing in the refrigerator.
Because many refrigerator freezer
compartments don't reach zero,
they should be used only for tem-
porary storage. Use separate
freezers for long-term storage.
Cooking
Almost any fish can be
baked, broiled, poached, steamed
or fried. Some people prefer to
bake fatty fish and poach or
steam lean fish. Fish fillets and
steaks are excellent charcoal
broiled or barbecued.
Allow 6 to 12 minutes cook-
ing -time for each inch of thick-
ness. Turn it halfway through the
cooking time. Fish is cooked
properly when the thickest part
becomes opaque and the fish
flakes easily when poked with a
fork.
Bake at 450 degrees F.
Broil about 5 inches from the
heat source.
Shrimp can be simmered 3 to
5 minutes depending on the size
and quantity or until the shells
turn red.
Clams and mussels may be
steamed over boiling water until
the shells open (5 to 10 minutes).
Oysters should be sauteed, baked
or broiled until plump and
opaque and the edges curl, about
2 to 3 minutes.
Follow these simple rules to
help assure that the fish and sea-
food you eat is as- healthful as it
is delicious.

Prolonged Vomiting

and Diarrhea

Needs Attention

By
Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

There are always patients with vomiting and/or diarrhea in the
area. It should be good to go over this subject again.
Most episodes of vomiting and diarrhea in children are caused
by a virus. They usually start with explosive vomiting which lasts
for one to three days and are then followed by days of mild to severe
diarrhea. There will usually be some evidence of the disease for'
eight to 10 days. The last two to three days may only be a loose
stool or two. -
The treatment for vomiting and diarrhea is symptomatic treat-
ment. That is, you try to deal with the symptoms until the body can
combat the illness and return to normal. Drugs sometimes are used
to treat adults with gastroenteritis but are not recommended for
children. If a fever is associated with the illness, Tylenol and bath-
ing will be-needed for fever control.
Vomiting, unless severe, can usually be controlled by leaving
the stomach empty for a short period of time and then using small
frequent amounts of something carbonated (Coca Cola, Ginger ale,
7-Up) to settle the stomach. If the vomiting is severe, the child may
need some anti-yomiting suppositories. The medication is absorbed
from the rectum and can calm the vomiting.
In the past it was customary to treat diarrhea by "resting" the
gut. This meant withholding food because it would be an irritation.
We have found it is better to feed a child through the diarrhea. This
usually means frequent small amounts of liquid and food. Enough
liquid and food to keep the child hydrated but, hopefully, not
enough to provoke a lot of diarrhea. With oral fluids and feeding we
are avoiding many of the intravenous fluids needed in the past. At
times we will add Kaopectate to the fluid and food. The Kaopectate
is soothing and does help to firm up the stools, but does not alter
the course of the disease. It will be the same eight to 10 days before
the child is back to normal.
There are special situations that may require special studies to
determine more exactly if the child has acquired a specific germ
that is causing the diarrhea. Children in day care are especially
prone to specific diarrheas, and Florida's climate encourages differ-
ent germs to grow excessively and these may in turn cause different
diarrheas. Sometimes it is necessary to do a stool examination or
stool culture. The concern we have with children when we are in
the midst of a vomiting and diarrhea siege is to be sure the child re-
mains well hydrated. Parents will need to pay attention to whether
or not the child has tears, has moist membranes in the mouth and
is urinating. A weight will need to be checked and compared to a re-
cent weight by the child's doctor if the episode is prolonged or se-
vere.

OdumnIs

' Certified In

Health Care

David J. Odum, of Bristol
and formerly of Port St. Joe. was
certified as a specialist in correc-
tional health care by the National
Commission on Correctional
Health Care (NCCHC).
The Certified Correctional
Health Professional (CCHP) pro-
gram is the only nationally recog-
nized program to acknowledge
the special skills needed to pro-
vide health care in a correctional
institution. Never before have
health care professionals, such as
David J. Odum, had the opportu-
nity to be recognized for their ex-
pertise in this special field.
"CCHP is the first such pro-
cess that demonstrates profes-
sionalisin and excellence in cor-
rectional health care," said R.
Scott Chavez, PA-C, Vice Presi-
dent of Professional Services at
National Commission on Correc-
tional Health Care. "CCHP is be-
coming increasingly important to
correctional health care profes-
sionals. We've seen where the cer-
tification is becoming a condition
of employment as a prerequisite
for pay raises and bonuses, and a
means of furthering their creden-
tials in the community."
To achieve certification David
J. Odum passed an examination
designed to assess knowledge of
S delivery of health care in a correc-
tional institution. Once certified,
a CCHP can maintain certifica-
tion by participating in 12 hours
of continued professional educa-
tion.
The National Commission on
Correctional Health Care, Incor-
porated in 1983 as a result of an
American Medical Association
program, is ar not-for-profit 501
(c)(3) organization dedicated to
improving the quality of health
care in our nation's jails, prisons,
and juvenile confinement facili-
ties. Additionally, NCCHC pro-
duces and disseminates resource
publications, provides technical
assistance, offers a quality review
program, and conducts educa-
tional training and conferences.
The NCCHC Is supported by 35
national organizations represent-
ing the fields of health, law, and
corrections. Each of these organi-
zations has named a representa-
tive to the NCCHC Board of Direc-
tors.

While Federal checks may be
'as good as gold,' they are not
good forever. They must be
cashed within a year of the date
they are issued. All Government
checks issued on or after October
1, 1989, carry the legend 'VOID
AFTER ONE YEAR." Government
checks issued prior to October 1,
1989, should have been cashed
no later than September 30, 1990
- 12 months after the law went
into effect.
Federal agencies hold funds
that individuals are entitled to
buthave never claimed. The rea-
son for the existence of these un-
claimed funds include owner
abandonment, death or incom-
plete or lost records that result in
owners or heirs forgetting about


or not being aware of assets. The
reason for the time limitation
placed on cashing U.S. Treasury
checks is so that the Govcrnmcnt
will be better able to maintain ac-
counting control of its financial
resources. Congress passed the
'Limited Payability,' law stating
that Government checks must be
cashed within 12 months after
the date on which the check was
issued. Since Social Security
checks are written from the trust
fund, when checks remain un-
cashed, trust fund reserves are
affected.

pired Social Security or Supple-
mental Security Income check to

Dear Fellow Citizens:
In my county wide door-to-door campaign.
I have attempted to see each and everyone of
you. If by chance I have missed you, please
know it was unintentional. Meeting with each
of you has been a blessing to me.
When you elect a government official, you
"hire" that person to represent you for four
years. Your hard earned tax dollars pays this
person a handsome salary. You want the very
best qualified employee to operate your office
in the most cost effective method without
giving up quality.
I have a deep .interest in Gulf County's
citizens and our last freedom "the right to
vote". As your Supervisor of Elections, my
goals are to bring credibility, cost
effectiveness, and quality to your elections
office with your utmost interest in mind. I
urge you to weigh all candidate's credentials
and choose wisely.

SCare-A-Van Offering

Screenings In P.S.J.


Port St. Joe is doing its part
to help the community fight back
against the number one killer -
heart disease.
According to the American
Heart Association more than 66
million Americans are afflicted
with one or more forms of heart
or blood vessel disease. In fact,
almost as many Americans die as
a result of these diseases as all
other causes of death combined.
Primary risk factors of heai-t
disease include high blood pres-
sure and high levels of cholesterol
in the blood.
Port St. Joe is addressing
these risk factors by having .Bay
Medical Center in Panama City
bring their "Care-A-Van," a 34-
foot mobile health screening van,
to the First Union Bank in Port
St. Joe on August 27 from 11


a.m. to 3 p.m. ET
The Care-A-Van will offer sev-
eral health screenings for the
community which include: Total
cholesterol screening ($5.00
each); body fat analysis ($5.00
each); glucose check ($2.00 each);
and blood pressure checks (free).
There is no fasting required. The
hours for the screenings will be
from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. ET.
The Care-A-Van is also
scheduled to return to Port St.
Joe on September 15, 16, and 17
and again on September 22, 23,
and 24 to perform health screen-
ings for the employees of the St.
Joe Paper Mill.
Join up with Port St. Joe and
Bay Medical Center in the fight
against heart disease. Your good
health is worth the effort.

*How's your car maintenance?
Recent survey found that 30
percent of all cars on the road
have low or dirty oil; 44 percent
need more coolant; 21 percent
have underinflated tires; 19
percent have faulty drive belts;
and 25 percent wouldn't pass
an emission check.
*If you're towing Junior's stuff
back to college, beware. Your
.car may not be up to the job.
Make sure the car's specified
"gross vehicle weight" is more
than the combined weight of
the car, passengers, luggage
and what's called the "tongue
weight" of the trailer.
*Your car uses 10,000 to
15,000 gallons of air for every
gallon of gasoline that it burns.
That's why you want to check

5-Year Licenses
Five-year licenses for Flori-

the $60 licenses can save anglers

OSUGAR-STOOTH'S

WORST ENEMY


Sugar is the ma~i cause of
tooth decay. Despite this, the
average person consumes
about 126 pounds of sugar a
year. (That's enough to make
about 10,000 chocolate chip
cookies!) No wonder the aver-
age person has 10 decayed
teeth before his or her 15th
birthday.
How does sugar perform its
dreadful deed? When you eat
sugary snacks, the sugar reacts
with bacteria in your mouth that
form colonies on the teeth.
These sticky colonies of bacte-
ria (called plaque) convert sugar
to acids and tooth decay results.
Simply, sugar is the fuel for
tooth decay.
Every time you snack on a
sugary food, these acids are
working for at least 20 minutes


afterwards (so three sugar
snacks or drinks a day create an
hour's worth of acid attack.) The
longer a sugary food lasts in
your mouth, the greater the risk
of tooth decay. Sticky and
chewy forms of snacks are more
harmful because they tend to
cling to your teeth longer.
The best decay prevention
is to reduce your consumption
of sugar combined with daily
brushing and flossing to keep
plaque from organizing. Sealing
your teeth is also an excellent
method of preventing decay.
Ask us if they will work for you.

Prepared as a public ser-
vice to promote better dental
health. From the office of:

Dear Friends
in District 3,

represent you to the best of -
my ability, and to make de-
cisibns that were fair and -
equal to all of Gulf ,Co. I
would like to share&some of
the things of' Importance
that I, with the help of oth-
ers, have been able to ac-
complish for District 3. -
1. Constructed a park in,. ? /
White ,City; complete
with picnic area, boat
ramp with dock and
ladder,' playground
and lighted basketball
court, and a building
in which to hold various community affairs.
2. Baseball park under construction in White City.
3. .We have been assured of the grants for the White City
water system.
4. Promised natural gas for White City.by April, 1993.
5. Increased White City and Highland View Fire Depts.,
budget by $5,000.00.
6. Paved 95% of roads in District 3.
7. Restored Highland View water tank. This project
enabled us to have the capacity of 80,000 gals. of water
in reserve for emergencies. This project also turned an
eyesore into a nice area for the neighborhood.
8. Replaced water meters and turned the H.V. and
Beaches water system into at least a break even system.
9. Replaced 3 old culverts with box culverts in drainage
ditch on Americus Ave. at beach. I have 2 more box,
culverts on order, and they will be in place soon. This
greatly improves drainage.
10. Added a new bay onto the Beaches Fire Dept.
11. Permits in place and construction to begin soon on
dune walk to be built on County property at Beacon
Hill. This will also have an access area for handicapped
citizens.
12. Utilized work camp crews to improve the overall
conditions of District 3. This includes litter, ditches,
and trimming the palm trees along Hwy. 98.
13. Last, but certainly of the utmost importance, we were
able to drop the millage rate by 1 mil.
I would appreciate your support for re-election as your
District 3 Commissioner.
Sincerely,

Ladies of the Equestrian Order of
the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem
in Naples on Saturday, Septem-
ber 13.
The Grand Prior of the South-
easter Lieutenancy of the Order,
the Most Rev. Stanley Ott, Bishop
of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, will be
the investing prelate.
In addition to the investiture
of 101 new members, promotions
to a higher rank within the Order
will be conferred on 91 Knights
and Ladies.
There are five ranks for mem-
bers of the Order, in descending
rank as follows:
Knight of the Collar (very
rare, and limited to 12), Knight
and Lady Grand Cross, Knight
and Lady Commander With Star,
Knight and Lady Commander,
and Knight and Lady.
Amelia Tapper of Port St. Joe
has been promoted from Lady
Commander to Lady Commander
With Star.

leans, Lieutenant of the South-
easter Lieutenancy of the Order,

liam E. Ball of Venice, Section

the only Order of Chivalry within

origins back to the era of the First
Crusade, when it was organized
to assist in protecting the Holy
Land from Moslem invaders.
Its mission today is the main-
tenance of a Catholic presence in
the Holy Land and it exercises
this mission through prayer and
the financial support of churches,
seminaries, convents, schools
and orphanages in what is now
Israel and Jordan.
The Order now has Lieute-
nancies or chapters in 32 nations
and principalities in Europe, the
New World and Australia. It is the
only Catholic Order which admits
women and members of the cler-
gy to all ranks, and it has done so
since 1888.
The program in Naples will
begin on Saturday,,, September
12, with a Mass in memory of de-
ceased Knights and Ladies, begin-
ning in the Church of St. William

tal Ballroom.
t The annual business meeting
of the Lieutenancy will begin at 9
a:m. on Sunday, also in the Crys-
tal Ballroom. The solemn ceremo-
ny of investiture will begin at 2
p.m. Sunday in the Church of St.
Williams.
The final event of the week-
end will be a white tie banquet in
the Crystal Ballroom honoring
the newlyb4nvested Knights and
Ladies.

H.V. Baptist
The Highland View Baptist
Church will be celebrating their
annual homecoming on Sunday,
September 13. The morning wor-
ship service will begin at 10:30
a.m. ET with former pastors Har-
ry Powell and Lowell Adams
bringing the messages. After the
services there will be a covered
dish luncheon in the fellowship
hall. After lunch, everyone will
enjoy music performed by Mary
Lou Sewell Cumbie and The Bou-
ingtons. Everyone is cordially in-
vited to attend.

Tips for Coming Through


Big Blow with Little Damage


In response to the predictions
of more and bigger hurricanes, of-
ficials of the Federal Insurance
Administration (FIA), part of the
Federal Emergency Management
Agency (FEMA), urge property
owners of the Gulf and East coast
to prepare for the 1992 Hurricane
Season (June through November).
FIA officials warned that the
predictions of increasingly violent
and destructive hurricanes were
borne out last year when Hurri-
cane Bob and the Northeaster
storm struck the mid and north
Atlantic coastlines. In addition to
the more than $80 million of fed-
eral disaster assistance provided
to victims of the storms, FIA paid
flood insurance claims payments
totalling $120 million.
Flood insurance protection is
available through the National
Flood Insurance Program (NFIP)
administered by FIA. For the esti-
mated 74 million people who may
face the force of a hurricane over
the next few month, FIA officials
offer the following safety tips to
protect lives and reduce the dam-
ages before, during and after the
hurricane.
BEFORE THE STORM
*Know your risk. Consult
your local emergency manage-
ment office for information on
preparedness in your area.
*Determine what shelter you
will go to if you have to leave.
*Rehearse the drive to a shel-
ter. Time the trip and then multi-
ply by three to allow for emergen-
cy conditions.
*Make the choice now to
evacuate when told to do so.
oCheck your homeowner's
coverage to make sure that you
have flood insurance. Take pic-
tures of your property before the
storm to help validate your claim
and remember to take the policies
with you should you have to evac-
uate.
oPre-pack a hurricane evacu-
ation kit (consult your local emer-
gency preparedness publications
of guidance on what should be in
the kit).
eRecheck your supply of
boards, tools, batteries, non-
perishable foods and other equip-
ment you will need when a hurri-
cane strikes your town.
*When you hear the first
tropical storm advisory, listen to
future messages. This will pre-
pare :for a hurricane emergency.
wellin.advance of the issuance of,
watches, and warnings. ..
*When your area is under a
hurricane watch, continue nor-
mal activities, but stay tuned to
radio or television for all weather
service advisories.
*Remember that a hurricane
watch means possible danger; if
the danger increases, a hurricane
warning will be Issued.
During the Storm
*Remain indoors during the
hurricane, blowing debris can

*Travel is extremely danger-
ous, stay put until local authori-
ties have announced that your
area is safe.
*If you are unable to evacuate
before the stormnn hits, seek refuge
in an interior, windowless area.
*If the calm storm center
(eye) passes directly overhead, be
aware that there will be a lull in
the wind lasting from a few min-
utes to half an hour or more. But
also remember that the winds at
the other side of the storm's eye
rise very rapidly to hurricane
force, coming from the opposite
direction.
After the Storm
*Expect the worst. 'Hurri-
canes are extremely violent
storms that often get stronger
over land.


eBe extra careful of downed
power lines, weakened struc-
tures, rodents and snakes, and
avoid puddles of standing water.
*Don't drink tap water and
eat only foods you are absolutely
sure are safe.
*Be extra careful when han-
dling power tools, gas lanterns,
generators and matches.
*Call your insurance compa-
ny or agent to file a claim as soon
as possible. If possible, take pho-
tos of the damage after the storm.
Remember that NFIP coverage is
backed by the federal government
but claims are processed by the,
agent who wrote the policy. The-"
sooner you file your claim, the-':
sooner you can expect your'
claims payment.
*Listen to your local radio
stations for official information -"

A child's academic success
hinges on six family-centered
areas: family reinforcement of
children's self-esteem, family
work habits, family support of ac-
ademics, family participation in
stimulating activities, family em-
phasis on language development,
and family academic expecta-
tions, according to a recent sur-
vey by educators.
"Only a fraction of what your
children learn comes from their
time in the classroom. Home and
community activities help chil-
dren grow, and reinforces con-
cepts they're learning in school,"
says Alvin Granowsky, Ed.D.,
vice president of School and Li-
brary Services for World Book Ed-
ucational Products.
"Parents might be surprised
to learn that strong self-esteem
may be the key to how well their
children do in 'school," says Gra-
nowsky. "The little things that
parents do every day can add up
and make a dramatic difference
in their children's success in
school." In addition to his work
for World Book, Granowsky spent
more than 20 years as a teacher
and director of reading in the Dal-
las, Texas, and Greensboro,
North Carolina, public schools.
Eight "little things" that par-
ents can do to make a difference:
1. Ask "What's wrong?" Let
children know their feelings are
important. Work out problems to-
gether.
2. Read books to your chil-
dren that may be above their
reading level. Or, introduce clas-
sics that they might now other-
wise read, like Treasure Island or
Grimm's Fairy Tales. Be a reader
yourself and let your children see
you read.
3. Pack a lunch and take a
driving trip to give your children

a chance to see and learn about
the world beyond their neighbor-
hood or town. Use an atlas, map
or other reference materials avail-
able at your local library to chart
your trip, and find out interesting
facts about the area.
4. Beat the "Why do I need to
learn this?" blues. Show children
how their schoolwork applies to
their lives. With a trip to the gro-
cery store, for instance, let them
use their math skills to determine
if the "sale" price is really a bar-
gain.
5. Encourage your children's
interest in subjects like baseball
or dinosaurs and go beyond
schoolwork. Search for library
books on the subjects. Encourage
your children to make up stories
or plays and to draw pictures
about the topics that interest
them. Display their work proudly.
6. Limit TV time. Watch TV
programs together and talk about
the characters or plot during
commercials.
Use events on the news as
opportunities for learning. When
a tornado touches down, a volca-
no erupts, or an earthquake oc-
curs, use reference resources to
research what caused it and

Rapid Weight Loss
Surprises Nutritional
Researchers!


A new Food
Replacement Chewable
Tablet containing high
concentrated apple pectin
fiber which has the ability to
fill a person up when eaten
a few minutes before a
regular meal, is very low in
calories, and causes people
to eat less and lose weight.
By adding vitamins and
octacosanol (a form of
Vitamin E), researchers say
the people who have tried
the product experienced
reduced hunger and more
energy. Chewing 3 tablets
before a meal is just like
eating a whole apple before
that meal, a trick fashion
models use to stay
super-thin! Food
Replacement Tablets
achieve the same effective
results with a chewable
chocolate tablet that can be
taken anywhere.

Holly Owens from
Henderson, Nevada says, "I
lost 23 Ibs. my first month
and didn't do anything
different except to take
Food Replacement Tablets
with a glass of water, the
