Rain Damages County Library

Repairs In Progress Leave Building Contents Vulnerable


Jean Faliski, Port St. Joe librarian, pre-
sented a tale of woe to the County Commis-
sion Tuesday in the aftermath of the weekend
rain. Mrs. Faliski had a tale to tell of extreme
damage and possible danger from water en-
tering the library which damaged books, office
machines, and the electrical components of
the building.
"If we hadn't made an emergency pur-
chase of some plastic to cover the books over
the weekend they would have been damaged
beyond repair", she said. Mrs. Faliski said
the problem ironically came from an attempt
to keep water from coming into the building.
A contractor, Fisher Construction Co., of We-
wahitchka had been given a contract to con-
struct a new type of roof on the building to re-
place the old, flat roof. Fisher's workmen had
worked Thursday and Friday on the building
cutting 90 holes in the roof in order to place
supports there to attach the new roof to. Mrs.


Faliski said the roofer had not attempted to
cover up holes in the roof in case of rain. As a
result it poured in around the walls of the
building doing heavy damage.
Building Department Supervisor, Donald
Butler, remarked that the type supports being
installed to carry the new roof would be hard,
if not impossible, to cover with temporary cov-
ering. "Add to that, workmen walking all over
the roof more than likely opened up numer-
ous leaks", said Butler.
WHO'S RESPONSIBLE?
As a result of the discussion and Mrs. Fa-
liski's description of the damages caused
Commissioner Nathan Peters to ask, "Just
who is responsible for the damages? Our in-
surance carrier or the contractor?"
Attorney Bob Moore said that on the sur-
face it appeared the contractor might be re-
sponsible, but the matter would have to be


considered in its entire light to make a deter-
mination.
"SHOULD WE CLOSE THE BUILDING?"
In the meantime Mrs. Faliski was asking
the Board whether or not she should close the
library down. "All of the electrical outlets,
plugs, lights, etc. are full of water, and I am
wondering if that's not dangerous," she asked.
Chairman Billy Traylor suggested that Butler
and Courthouse Maintenance Director Joe
Bearden do an intensive inspection of the
building and determine whether or not a dan-
gerous situation existed.
"If their report determines a danger we
have no alternative but to shut the building
down until it can be dried out and repairs
made," Traylor said.
Mrs. Faliski said that for safety's sake she
wouldn't reopen the building until the inspec-
tion had been made and the all clear given.


Port St. Joe, Wewa to Get Secondary Paving

Marvin Avenue Top Priority for Re-surfacing This Month


Members of the volunteer fire department gain en-
trance to the attic of the Tom Ford home in fighting' a
lightning fire Monday.


Lightning Strikes


Tom Ford Home

Afternoon Storm Brings Number
of Bolts Crashing Down Monday

Severe electrical storms were Gulf County's share of.the
storm line swept across the South during the past week.
Rainfall was extremely heavy in spots throughout the county
but just how spotty it was is indicated by the Wastewater
Treatment Plant's rain gauge which measured approximately
an inch of rainfall since September 5.
But along with this system of afternoon showers Gulf
County has experienced high winds and severe lightning
storms which have caused some damage as well as a great
deal of anxiety.
Monday afternoon at about 2:00, the home of Eugene T.
(Tom) Ford on St. Joseph Drive was the target of one of these
lightning bolts. The lightning struck a tree near the Ford's
house and veered off into an upstairs portion of the home
causing a smoldering fire.
Tommy Ford, who was home at the time, noticed a great
deal of smoke beginning to build up in the home and called
the fire department. Fire destruction was confined to the at-
tic portion of the home with dense smoke filling the home
causing a great deal of damage. The fire alarm was answered
by Port St. Joe and St. Joe Beach units. Minor structural
damage was caused to the upstairs portion of the home
mainly from firemen gaining entrance to the blaze.
On Tuesday winds accompanying a wind and lightning
storm blew two trees over on power lines on 9th and 10th
Streets, knocking out electrical service for a short while.
Dead limbs have littered the city for the past week due to the
summer storms.


The City of Port St. Joe and
areas in and around Wewahitch-
ka will divide some $400,000 in
secondary road fund money still
remaining in Gulf County's bud--
get this year. The two communi-
ties will share spending of the
funds as an addition to a recent
paving contract awarded C. W.
Roberts Construction Company.
Port St. Joe will have Marvin
Avenue, portions of Seventh,
Eighth and Ninth Streets paved
with the state funds. In Wewa-
hitchka Commissioners Charles
Fortner and Chairman Billy Tray-
lor will determine which ones of
the five or six short streets are in
the most need of paving. Fortner
remarked that several of the
streets were still dirt streets and
that paving would remove them
from the maintenance schedule.
Commissioner Peters sug-
gested resurfacing Marvin Avenue
because "it needed it worse than
any street in the city." Al Ray
insisted on adding Seventh,
Eighth and Ninth Streets to the
list.
Chairman Billy Traylor
remarked that a couple of pro-
jects were already scheduled to
be paid from this secondary fund
such as an expensive culvert
across the creek on the state pris-
on road and drainage work in the
St. Joe Beach area. Road Super-
intendent Bob Lester advised the
Board there should be sufficient
funds for all projects.
Chairman Traylor suggested
this be done as soon as possible

Regrets for Mistake
Made In Story
In an article last week on the
results of Wewahitchka's' city
election, the losing candidate was
incorrectly identified to The Star
by election officials. Eric Pitts lost
to Thomas McDaniel by 28 votes,
polling 280 votes compared to
McDaniel's 308. Pitts was named
incorrectly last week.
The Star regrets the error.

the area.
NEW CHAIRMAN
Al Ray was nominated as the
new chairman for the Board
beginning with the new fiscal year
in October. Ray, commissioner
from District Five, is completing
his first term on the Board. Ray
was nominated by Nathan Peters,
and had the unanimous consent
of the remainder of the Board.
Ray has served the Board as
vice-chairman during the fiscal
91-92.
Peters was named Vice-
Chairman for the new fiscal year.
Now the veteran of the board, he
serveded as chairman three years
ago..


Al Ray .
...New Board Chairman


OTHER BUSINESS
Other items of business to
come before the commission
were:
Secured an easement to
improve two drainage ditches in
the Jones Homestead area. The
easements were granted by St.
Joe Land and Development Co.
The Board approved appli-
cation for a 911 grant of $1,700.
The grant had been given Wewa
Ambulance Service but was
declared surplus by that organi-
zation and turned over to the 911
committee.
Preble-Rish were employed
as engineers for construction of
two new bridges in the Red Bull
Island area. The bridges are to
replace structures which have
been declared substandard.


Crack Cocaine Arrests Made

Two Wewahitchka Men Arrested; One on the Loose


Two men were arrested, and warrants issued
for a third, after the Gulf County Sheriffs Depart-
ment served a search warrant on the home of
Steve Wright, according to Sheriff Al Harrison. The
arrests culminated a three week long investigation
in which undercover officers of the Gulf County
Sheriffs Department had made purchases of crack
cocaine from those charged.
Arrested were Steve Anthony Wright, 20, of
Hwy. 22, P. 0. Box 319, Wewahitchka, and Robert
James Wright, 31, of Hwy. 22, P. 0.. Box 916, We-


wahitchka. The younger Wright was charged with
sale and possession of crack cocaine, his first of-
fense. The elder Wright, released from the Gulf
County Jail approximately a month ago, was
charged with two counts of sale of crack cocaine.
Solomon (Slick) Fisher, Jr., 20, of Freeman
Rouse Rd., Wewahitchka, currently serving a com-
munity control sentence, managed to elude officers
Tuesday and warrants have been issued for him
on sale of crack cocaine and resisting arrest with
violence.

Minor Injuries Result from Car

Lawn Mower Collision Tuesday


Whales Beach Themselves In Bay Shallows
Several small pygmy killer sperm whales beached themselves in shallow waters behind the
Post Office Friday morning, apparently ill or confused. Attempted rescue of the mammals
went on most of the day with Florida Marine Patrol, Catherine Koran, and several local volun-
4' teers and handlers from Gulf World participating. The whales were removed to Gulf World for
treatment where one is eating and swimming by itself and the other two are progressing well.


A client of Gulf County Asso-
ciation of Retarded Citizens,
Michael Charles Ware, 21, was
injured Tuesday morning when
the lawn mower he was riding
was struck by a 1990 Jeep sta-
tion wagon driven by Jennifer B.
Taylor of Port St. Joe.
Ware was cutting the lawn at
the nursing home, mowing south


along Long Avenue when he
veered into the path of Taylor's
vehicle which was also headed
south. Taylor's vehicle pushed
the lawn mower for a short dis-
tance before it flipped over. Ware
sustained abrasions and contu-
sions, and was transported to
Gulf Pines Hospital by emergency
personnel, where he was kept


overnight for observation.
According to Police Chief Carl
Richter, Ware was at fault for fail-
ing to yield the right of way. The
potential for damage was greatly
reduced because Mrs. Taylor was
travelling below the speed limit,
only about 20 miles per hour
according to Richter. No charges
were filed in the accident.

Peterson

More Convincing

Whether you voted for Congressman Peterson or not; wheth-
er you supported the man or just could not bring yourself to do
so for one reason or the other, the fact remains that he had
some very pertinent remarks to make here last Tuesday as he
prepared for the election.
You see, Pete Peterson didn't spend a visit here campaigning
and telling you why you should vote for him. He told us in plain
language why our nation was in trouble and stated, flatly, "It's
going to hurt everyone to set things right."
He's right, you know.
There is no way under the sun which we can bring our econ-
omy under control without controlling government spending.
-Only about a third of government spending is pliable-subject to
cuts or increases-and since the nation is spending about ,a
third more than it takes in each and every year, we have prob-
lems.
As Peterson said, with a balanced budget, some of the most
visible cuts will be made in entitlements, such as welfare, medi-
cal care, social security, retirement funds, education, and other
cuts of programs which have been funded so long they have be-
come necessities. In Port St. Joe, right now, about $500,000 in
government money is being used to repair the homes of the eld-
erly poor, who need the work done to their homes but can't af-
ford it. That's the type thing Peterson was talking about, saying,
"It's going to hurt!" Grants will evaporate.
It's going to be unpopular, too, this cutting spending to bring
the economy under control. It will probably result In more taxes
or an overhaul of the present tax laws to make them more effe-
cient as revenue producers.
"Everyone is going to be hurt," he said, "But unless we do
bring spending under control, we're going to bankrupt our na-
tion if we continue to spend a third more than we take in on the
revenue side each year."
The Congressman did just as everyone else who isn't a recipi-
ent of welfare and charitable acts does; he said it was going to
hurt the recipients to have their funds reduced. However he also
said it would hurt the moderately affluent. The one on welfare
couldn't spend that' welfare dollar in the business world. He
couldn't care for himself at the level that he is now able. Too, the
spending cuts would have to be accompanied by a tax increase.
Less dollars in the economy, to pay for more taxes.
But that's the bullet the nation has to bite. It isn't going to
taste very good and everyone, without exception, is going to feel
:the pinch. Still, balancing the nation's economy is a necessity.
no matter that it does hurt, to keep this nation solvent, he point-
ed out.



Rocket Exciting

Gulf County's introductory into space recently was an im-
pressive sight, to say the least. The rocket looked sort of small
'and toy-like, resting on its stand beside the road, but when it
,came the rocket's turn to perform, it made a believer out of the
audience. It looked like a giant bottle rocket, but it didn't per-
form like a bottle rocket!
The rocket roared to life and was gone before you could blink
your eyes. As a matter of fact, if you had been in the act of blink-
ing when the rocket fired, you missed it!
We'd never taken a picture of a space rocket before, so it sort
of took us by surprise. It was gone in an actual snap of your fin-
gers. Our shutter finger was entirely too slow. We got a perfect
picture of where the rocket had been.
Space Program Director, Ed O'Conner was delighted with the
launch. Launch director, Edward Ellegood was more than
pleased with the results. All of this should add up to their en-
thusiasm selling more trips aloft by scientific rockets and make
the Cape San Bias area a hot property.
Cape Canaveral is in the orbital rocket business and is fa-
mous for this designation. Many important events started there
and- has made the location a by-word on the tip of tongues all
over the world.
Let us hope that Cape San Blas will become equally as fa-
mous from the commercial space probe viewpoint, and make
Gulf County a by-word for those needing to take advantage of
rockets sent into sub-orbit.
We're enthused over the program. If a Governor of a Province
of Mexico is interested enough to come witness the launch, it
must have potential, to draw such attention on the very first
launch.


Hunker Down with Kes


Two Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest


Leon was five years older
than me. (World War II got int
there between us.) He was an
O.K. big brother. He wasn't great,
mind you, 'cause If things didn't
go Just right, he'd thump me se-
verely upside the head and shoul-
ders. I'd get so mad I'd find David
Mark and kick him around a bit.
I tell you, it was tough being the
middle brother. It could also be
confusing.
You had to remember which
brother you could hit and which
one, if you made fun of you
had to run. You couldn't
switch'eml If I told Leon he had
those Rafer Hutchinson ears, I
had to make sure I could get into
the kitchen and grab Mother's leg
before he could catch me. Boy, a
miscalculation there could get
you hurt big time. If David said


something about my hair looking
like Alfred E. Neuman's I had to
pretend that I didn't hear him......
let him move a little closer......
and say It again...... I don't look
up...... a little closer....... 'Your
hair reminds me of-" I'd spring
like a cat. If I could get him be-
fore he made it to the kitchen, he
paid dearly.......
If we went out, Leon wanted
me to be on the other side of the
earth from him. You know what I
mean? Mother wouldn't let him
go to the picture show on Satur-
day unless he took me. He gave
me the same talk every time.
"Here's your ticket. I'm going to
buy you some Necco Wafers,
they'll last the whole picture if
you don't put'em all in your
mouth at once, I'm sitting down
front with the guys, you sit in the
very back and don't come down
there near us. And for goodness
sakes, try to look like you don't
know me."
Leon said I "cramped his
style." I never could understand
that. Of course, you can't believe
what our Mother did a few years
later. She wouldn't let me go to


the picture show unless I took
David Mark. Mom Just didn't un-
derstand! I couldn't meet Ricky
and Yogi at the Park Theater with
my little, lite brother standing
underfoot! "David. here's your
ticket. I'm going to buy you some
Necco Wafers........."
I couldn't wait 'til Leon left
home and David Mark grew up.
They ought to try being In the
middle sometime!
Leon left, I was, finally, the
oldest son at home. Guess what?
I missed him. I was secretly --fa-
ous that he spent more time with
Paula, than he did with me. He
even seemed to like her better......
And I couldn't take my frustra-
tionsout on David by this time
he could beat me up.
What a great childhood. I still
have the best two brothers in the
whole world. And if we had it to
do all over, I wouldn't change a
thing. Well, except maybe I'd
a'not squeezed that toothpaste
down into Leon's tube of Bryl-
creem......
I've got two sons. You see my
problem? I'm having trouble relat-
ing 'cause there's no middle child.


Now Josh beats on his little
brother somewhat. And Jesse
works at aggravating the dickens
out of Josh. I can understand
that. In my comprehension of the
ways things are done In the fami-
ly setting, that's normal behavior.
But the problem is Jess doesn't
want to be seen with Josh. And
Josh truly tries to get his younger
brother to do things with him.
That seems backwards to me.
Now I can understand that
Jess Is a little cautious 'cause
Josh is somewhat like his Uncle
Leon, he leaps into action before
he thinks.. And he can get knee
deep before he knows what's hap-
pening ........I think that's the
"oldest brother" trait.
Cathy and I were both
pleased last week when the boys
decided to go somewhere togeth-
er. It was a school morning but
Josh talked Jesse into getting up
at 5:30 to go check a coon trap
with him. Cathy was going to get
up and see them off but she real-
ized what time they were leaving
so she wished them luck and told

You Need to See How the Other Half Lives Once In A While


FRIDAY, AUGUST 28, we
loaded up the car and took a trip
to Orlando to attend the Graphic
Arts Show, there, in the Conven-
tion Center out near Disney
World.
The Graphic Arts Show Is a
gathering of manufacturers of
machinery and providers of new
services and new ways of doing
things. We hadn't been in several
years, so Willie and I decided to
attend, along with our wives.
Orlando is a long way from
Port St. Joe.
It seems like it takes forever
to get there from here. The traffic
is heavy; the rainfall was continu-
ous. and the streets of Orlando
seem to go In circles.
You're reading about this
short soiree this week for a varie-
ty of reasons. First, I had to go
back to the Outpatient section of
Bay Medical Thursday morning
and have some more surgery per-
formed on my hand. This effec-
tively puts me out of the column


writing business for a couple of
weeks. I had this trip for a sub-
ject, so I just put all the reasons
'Into a basket, shook them up,
and this came out.

ON THE TRIP down to Orlan-
do we saw several trucks loaded
with building supplies and equip-
ment, apparently headed for Mia-
mi and the storm area. It was a
regular caravan headed south.
The Florida Turnpike was
having a good week In tolls, be-
cause of the storm.
When we arrived at the Show,
held In Orlando's new Convention


Center, I first had to marvel at
the size of the Convention Center.
There were a lot of people, exhibi-
tors, presses, machinery of all
types, all set up and running in
the big hall of the Center, but it
filled up only about a half of the
hall.
Orlando's Convention Center
could hold the population of Gulf
County and have plenty of space
left over for several other conven-
tions of the same size going on at
the same time. It took 25 minutes
to walk from about half way up
the parking lot and around the
building to the front entrance.


They even had shuttle buses run-
ning from the parking lot to the
main entrance.
The Sharks could have had a
football game in one comer of the
auditorium and still plenty of
room left to park all the cars, put
the school buildings, and play-
grounds inside. That doesn't
count the hundreds of meeting
rooms and banquet rooms which
jutted off the long hallways.
MY MOUTH FAIRLY watered
when I saw all the shiny new
equipment operating on the floor
and just waiting for a buyer. The
operators all wore clean shirts
and ties, evidently to emphasize
that a person didn't need to get
dirty operating their particular
brand of machinery.
I came back down to earth,
however, when one of the bright,
shiny presses malfunctioned and
had to be shut down. They acted
just like ours do at times.
A large two-color press


caught my eye. It wasn't a small
duplicator, or a medium size off-
set press. It was a genuine, large
size, heavy made, press which
printed a 22" sheet and was do-
ing it two colors at a time. It was
a dream. Operating as quiet as a
mouse, it had absolutely no vi-
bration. You could balance a
nickel on the frame while it was
running and it wouldn't fall over.
It was made in America, my
criteria for purchasing printing
presses, and it was turning out
the work effortlessly. The only
thing wrong with it was the price
tag. I'm not going to tell you how
much it was, but you could near-
ly buy The Star for its sale price.

I MADE ONE purchase at the
show. I purchased one of those
roller rulers you see advertised on
TV. Actually, I bought three dif-
ferent sizes of them. The things
actually work just like they say
on TV!
Just the thing for drawing


circles, ovals, straight lines of
equal distance, etc. It is a handy
gadget to have around, especially
in our business.
I would have gone just to get
an affordable motel room. I had a
room, not two blocks from the
show, in a block filled with motels
for only $38.00. Imagine that. I
have never gone to Orlando be-
fore and got by with less than
$80.00 for a motel.
A TRIP IS NOT A trip with-
out taking in a good place to eat
and partaking of a little suste-
nance. In other words, it's almost
mandatory that one take in a
good restaurant.
We did just that as we visited
Charley's Steak House, located in
a shopping center in front of the
Hilton Inn, where interstate 4 in-
tersects with Highway 192.
It was delicious! A filet mi-
gnon, four inches thick and
about four inches in diameter.
And, I ate the whole thing!

A Class Reunion
There's nothing as constant as change. ,1 wise and knowing
Chinese once said. And he was so right, as 'yoL know if you've ever
attended a high school class reunion of over 20 years.
I graduated from Tate High School and our 35th class reunion
will be held in Pensacola, September 4th and 5th.
Since my departure from the confines of T.H.S. and the Pensa-
cola area in the fall of 1957, I have often wondered about many of
my former classmates. We all change, physically and mentally, with
time. I'm about 30 pounds overweight (would you believe 40?), have
a lot less hair, can't run half as far or fast as I could in 1957 and
have crossed many a rickety bridge since then.
Obviously, I know about myself, but I wonder about some of the
others who were in my class. Below are a few questions I may have
answered come Sunday morning, September 6th.
*Does Greg Allen still look like he was born dressed up? Greg
looked like he was making business calls when he was in high
school. I can't remember him in jeans and a sweat shirt.
*Whatever happened to Judy Barnes? I dated Judy for almost a
year and spent close to $50 on her and she never would let me kiss
her. We did ]nold hands one time, though.
*The last time I saw my best high school buddy, Martin Camp-
bell, he was on a "health kick." He had become a "vegetarian" and
was running 10 to 15 miles a day. I hope he hasn't been hit by a
motorist while running in an early morning fog or died from malnu-
trition. Martin is a sports
*What about John Estes? Is he still rich like I thought he was
in high school? He always wore "store-bought" clothes, ate in the
cafeteria and had his own car he drove to school. It was a 1956
Chevy with an automatic transmission. I wonder if his legs are still
as short as they were in 1957.
*I wonder if Carolyn Caudle will be there. If she is I have some-
thing I want to say to her. She is the only girl who ever stood me up
in high school. I was too shy to say anything to her then, but if I see
her at the reunion......... and I hope she's married and her husband
is there.
*Will Ray Gibbs be there? Ray showed me a $100 bill one day in
the high school and I couldn't believe it was real, but it was. If he's
at the reunion and has some loose change, I may try to get a little
poker game"started. With my luck, Ray's probably given up cattle
fanning and started gambling for a living.
*I hope Lacy Williams and Rose Claire Miles are there. I saw
both of them at a previous reunion and they were both stunningly
beautiful and vivacious:
*I don't wonder about Windell Long and Virgil Myrick. Both are
solid as rocks and doing well, I'm sure.
But I do wonder about others, like James Hicks, Ray Gibson,
Gal Cobb, Gene Creswell, Suzie Eaton, Albert Bass, Virgil Kret, Jim-
my Nelson; Faye Powell, Betsy Soday, Marlene West and Mac Tid--
well. Are they and the rest of the class doing well?
Five, I believe, are dead, but I hope the rest are doing well and
attend the reunion. I'm looking forward to seeing all of them.
They may not let me attend after what I did at the last reunion.
But, I'll see, come Friday night!

At 7:00 they hadn't returned.
"Honey -"
'They're all right. Two broth-
ers need some time off by them-
selves. Leon, Dave, and I spent
some real quality time together.
I'm just pleased Jesse went."
'Course this is what I'm telling
her but I'm really thinking, "Lord,
it's only three miles or so ,out
there, they should have been
home an hour ago."
At 7:20 I'm getting ready to
go look for them -
"Kes, they're home! Now,
don't be mad. They got the truck
stuck. Josh is afraid to come in."
I eased out to the porch,
"Son."
"Dad, I'm sonrry. It was Just a
little hole. I don't know how -"
"I'll get the truck. You get
ready for school."
I was riding out there think-
ing about Jesse. His first "go off
together" trip with Josh and it
cost him a three mile, before
school walk. Josh was upset. I

made a mental note to tell him
we've all gotten stuck. It's no big
deal. You just need to look-
I COULDN'T BELIEVE
ITI He said a little hole! The
truck is just about underwater.
Off to the right I could see the top
of a smoke stack from a sunken
ship. I'll need a crane and an oil
derrick to get that truck out. I'm
not wading off in there, the crea-
ture from the Black Lagoon could
be lurking just under the water,
that guy in the kon-tiki floated
by ........ NOBODY would
drive off into this thing. When I


get my hands on Josh whoa,
wait a minute, I know one other
person in the history of the
known world that wodld have
pulled off in here, possibly even
thinking he had a chance of mak-
ing it to the far shore LEON. I
tell you, it must be that older
brother syndrome. Surely, it Just
doesn't run in our family.
Jesse may be the smartest
one in the whole bunch and
he's convinced me, "I'm not ever
going off with Josh again."
Respectfully,
Kesley

r CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM

To Be or Not

to Be In School...

Reasons for Both
. By
S** Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

Regular school attendance is required for consistent steady
learning. A child who goes to school one day and is then out for sev-
eral days becomes discouraged and school attendance becomes less
and less attractive.
Teachers have the responsibility to teach, but parents have the
responsibility to get the child to school well rested, well fed and
ready to learn.
When a child is seriously ill parents will want to remain with
the ill child. Most of the time parents are not faced with serious ill-
nesses. For minor illnesses parents should plan ahead and have
some arrangement made whereby they would not need to miss work
just because the child can not go to school.
Occasionally a child who is not too fond of school will soon fig-
ure out if he says he is sick he will be allowed to go to grandmoth-
er's house and spend the day being coddled by grandmother. Not
that all of us wouldn't enjoy a day of coddling but after one or two
times being conned by the child you soon put your foot down and
off to school he goes.
ACCEPTABLE REASONS NOT TO GO TO SCHOOL
1. Fever 4
2. Vomiting
3. Diarrhea
4. Chicken Pox
5. Pink Eye
6. Head Lice
7. Impetigo
8. Strep Throat (until on medicine for 24 hours)
UNACCEPTABLE REASONS TO BE OUT OF SCHOOL
1. Late waking up (better to arrive late than not at all)
2. Babysitting another child
3. Going fishing or hunting
4. Trouble with school work or children at school (this needs to
be worked on and gets worse if the child is continually absent)
5. Not finishing homework
6. Not having the "right" clothes (be sure the clothes are clean
and neat but because they are not the latest fashion is no excuse)
7. Missing the bus (take them any way)
8. Because it is a nice day.

Cape San Blas Lighthouse Has A


Storm Battered 150-Year History


RAPPORT BETWEEN
SHIP AND LIGHTHOUSE
By
Lenohr Clardy
THE CALL
I ship the waves, search and scan the sky.
Sand and silt are churned by swirling cur-
rents.
I cling to the intangible ray of rope.
Shoals a sailor's nightmare, reduce my
power.
I sense expectations of trouble with shallow
bed.
I CALL upon you; you know my plight.
THE ANSWER
I stand tall and send my revolving eye
Firm is my structure against the raging tor-
rents.
I give you insurmountable scope.
A soldier standing watch, I send security
from my tower.
Safety come's from gleaming prisms at my
head.
I ANSWER your call with my beam of light.
This is the eleventh in a series of articles
of Harvest of History.

CAPE SAN BLAS LIGHTHOUSE
Probably several types of isolated bon-
fires or beach fires served as the first light-
houses.
As early as 1789 oil lanterns (whale the


most popular) were illuminating beaches,
but science in lighthouse construction was
constantly moving forward.
In 1823, a Frenchman, Augustin Fres-
nel, revolutionized optics, using prisms'
unique reflecting and refracting capabilities,
arranging them around a light source in
such a way as to gather into a single beam
and magnify it many times its original pow-
er. This type of lens is used at Cape San
Bias Lighthouse.
Commerce increased greatly in 1823
around the Gulf of Mexico and military sea-
men pressured the government to mark the
Florida Coast and oust its infamous pirates.
A lighthouse was built at Pensacola in
1825.
The lighthouse at Beacon Hill was in op-
eration in late summer of 1902. Charles
Lupton was the keeper.
The first Cape San Bias Lighthouse was
build in 1838 with $10,000 appropriated by
Congress. This lighthouse lasted only 10
years before Congress decided to build an-
other one. This one was to be built further
south on The Cape.
The new 85-foot tower had stood for
only three or four years when, in 1851, it
toppled in a hurricane the same giant
storm that knocked down the tower at Cape
St. George. It took fever-plagued construc-
tion crews five years to rebuild the San Blas
Tower, only to be destroyed again by Confed-
erate raiders during the War Between The

States. They burned the keeper's house and
lighthouse, torching everything combustible
- the doors and windows, sashes in the
lighthouse tower. The tower's third order
lens was damaged.
The lighthouse was relighted after the
war, but was in trouble again by the late
1870's. The threat was erosion again. By
1880 the surf had reached the base of the
lighthouse and within two years, the tower
stood in eight feet of water. In 1882, with the
continued erosion each day, the tower could
no longer keep its balance and went once
again down in waves.
A 90-foot tall log with a light on top of it
served as a beacon Until the sixth Cape San
Blas Lighthouse was completed in 1885.
The board now made plans for a skele-
ton tower of lightweight iron, held together
by struts and wires. The ship sank near
Sanibel Island, south of Tampa Bay. It was
salvaged, and by 1885, was completed at a
safe distance 900 feet inland. By 1889, the
distance between the gulf and tower was
only 200 feet. Twice more it had to be
moved. In 1894, a storm again toppled the
keeper's house, and left the lighthouse
standing in water.
The tower was stabilized until 1916. The
lighthouse was finally moved in 1918 to a
safe location 1,857 feet north. The light is
still in use, and visitors who don't mind
climbing the 90-foot tower can see cracks
said to be made by Confederate musket balls
in the revolving Fresnel lens.

Cottondale for 19-6 Win


In an unusual jamboree for-
mat Port St. Joe and Cottondale
combined for a 19-6 win over
Walton County/Freeport last
Thursday evening. The Sharks of-
fense scored a touchdown on a
one yard plunge by Kevin Lee,
capping a 30 yard drive, while the
defensive unit did not give up any
points in two defensive quarters.
One of the highlights of the
evening was the specialty team,
as -the kick-off return unit had
two long yardage returns, both of
which were one block away from
scoring.
Coach John Hicks said he,
was pleased with the Sharks' per-
formance. 'We made few mis-
takes, and gave up no turnovers,
and our defense caused three


turnovers," stated Hicks. The
Shark defense snared two passes
for interceptions and recovered a
fumble during the two quarters it
played. Bryan Butts and Sandy
Quinn each had an interception
and Arion Nickson picked up a
fumble.
Hicks went on to comment
that the team blocked well, while
the receivers need to work on
their routes.

DRY SOCKET


Normally, following the ex-
traction of a tooth, the wound in
the jaw usually heals within a
few days without complications.
However, in every life, there is
always an exception. One of
those rare complications that
can follow an extraction is
known as a dry socket.
As the name (dry socket)
implies, the clot that normally
forms shortly after tooth remov-
al, fails to develop or is lost.
This leaves a bare and unpro-
tected socket exposed to bacte-
ria, saliva and food debris. The
lining of the socket is sensitive
and when bared to this irritating
environment, a great deal of
pain can develop.
About all that can be done


is to keep the area as clean as
possible and the patient as com-
fortable as possible with medi-
cation and place an anesthetic
dressing into the open socket
until nature develops a protec-
tive covering for the exposed
socket.
The reason why a dry sock-
et forms is not fully known.
Some believe it results from a
rapid bacterial action, others be-
cause of a fault in the blood clot-
ting mechanism.

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

Give Lawn Last Fertilization


August ends the intense heat
and September in our area brings
on the promise of cooler times. As
fall approaches, lawns are still in
active growth and need our con-
tinued commitment to bring them
into the winter in a healthy condi-
tion.
September is the ideal time to
give a lawn its last .fertilizer for
the year. Fertilizing into October
or November as some do, sets the
lawn up for winter injury if we
have an early frost Even the use
of winterizing blends is not sug-
gested much past the end of Sep-
tember. A satisfactory fertilizer
would be a 15-0-15 or 16-4-8, ap-
plied at the rate of six pounds per
1000 square feet of lawn. Some
garden shops sell a weed and feed
16-4-8 which will also apply a
pre-emergent weed killer to the
lawn. If winter and early spring
.weeds have been a problem this
last year, this might be wise to
do. Be sure to water in these
products with at least 3/4 inch of
water after their application and
do not apply them if the grass is
under moisture stress or temper-
ature for the next few days are
predicted to be in the nineties.
Wet years '(as this has been)
lead to outbreak of lawn caterpil-
lars. Fall armyworms are likely to
be as serious a problem this year
as they were last. If areas of the
yard look shorter than others and
closer examination shows blades

*Traction and temperature re-

Extension Notes

Gulf County Extension Service


half eaten, caterpillars are the
problem. To control them, spray
with Diazinon, Dursban, Sevin,
Dipel/Thuracide or Orthene.
Spray the entire lawn as often as
necessary, even though only a
part of the lawn is affected due to
the widespread nature of these
pests once they get started.
Diseases will also be common
now on lawn grasses, especially
St. Augustine grass. Gray leaf
spot will appear as a grayish or


purplish spot on the leaf blade.
Brown patch appears as brown to
yellow rot at the base of the leaf.
Several sprays 10-14 days apart
with a lawn fungicide is suggest-
ed as control for these two pest
problems. Catch them early since
they can kill a lot of grass and lit-
tle time remains before winter
comes on to get more to grow
back into the dead areas.
If mole crickets were bad in
the yard this last spring, now is


the time to make the final control
attempt. Waiting until November
or December will be too late since
the crickets at that time would be
too large to achieve control with
the product commonly available
to home owners. Sprays, contain-
ing Diazinon or Dursban, give
satisfactory control if they are ap-
plied late in the day and then wa-
tered in. They are more effective if
there has been rain a day or two
before so that the soil is moist
and mole crickets are more likely
to be active that evening. Bait
materials are also effective but
never water a bait in. Such mate-
'rials are only attractive to mole
crickets when they are dry. Water
,makes them mushy and unap-
pealing. Because of this, baits are
likely to attract crickets for only
the first night or two after appli-
cation. Apply these late in the day
for best results, following a period
of rain, so that the crickets are
more likely to be actively feeding.


Millions of birds, from tiny
hummingbirds to majestic hawks
and falcons, fly great distances
every year as they travel between
summer breeding grounds and
winter homes. This mass move-
ment of birds, called \migration, is
an important part of the natural
cycle of many Florida species.
Fall is a great time to watch
birds when they migrate to, or
through, our state. Birds may be
en romte from Canada or north-
ern states on their way to Carib-
bean islands, Mexico, Central
America or northern South Amer-
ica.
Some, however, end their
southward journey in Florida,
spending the winter in marshes,
estuaries, and forests. Others
come north in the spring from the
tropics to rest and refuel before
heading further north to raise
families.


Many migrants are creatures
of the forest, more often heard
than seen thrushes, vireos,
warblers, orioles, and tanagers.
These species are called neotropi-
cal migrants, birds that breed In
North America and winter south
of our borders. About 250 species
escape winter's icy grasp by flying
south every year.
Changes in the length of day-
light are thought to be the pri-
mary trigger that causes birds to
begin their long journey. They fly
mostly at night to avoid hawks
and other predators, navigating
by the stars. As the sun rises,
they use landmarks to stay on
course, often dropping to earth to
rest and feed along the way.
Many species use the south-
ern tip of Florida as a natural
jumping-off point for non-stop
flights across the Gulf of Mexico.
As the state narrows, the birds

concentrate at land's end where
they wait for good weather to be-
gin the difficult journey across
open water.
These annual migrations of
birds have now dwindled to a
trickle. Over the last few decades,
many neotropical migrant popula-
tions have experienced drastic de-
clines. Radar tracking of songbird
flights over the Gulf of Mexico has
shown that the number of birds
in the 1980's was half of that re-
corded in the 1960's. It is now es-
timated that songbird popula-
tions have been reduced to one
quarter of what they were. in pre-
colonial times.
Loss of habitat, both in the
tropics and here in North Ameri-
ca, is the main factor in the de-
cline of migratory .birds. The
chain of forests extending from
North America to the tropics is
rapidly changing due to deforest-
ation and fragmentation of the

habitat.
Tropical forests worldwide are
being cut, at a rate of 1 to 4 per-
cent each year, mainly for agri-
cultural use. Birds are very sensi-
,tive to winter habitat loss
because their concentration in
this region may be five to eight
times greater than on summer
breeding grounds.
U.S. forests have been re-

Girl Scouts

Recruiting
The Girl Scout Council of the
Apalachee Bend is starting its fall
recruitment drive this month.
There will be special Girl Scout
school nights for various commu-
nity schools promoting Girl
Scouting. Being a part of Girl
Scouting can be very important in
a young girl's life. Girl Scouting is
a values-based organization
which promotes values such as
fairness, self-respect, community
service, and high standards of
conduct. It is also an all-girl or-
ganization so the girls can really
be themselves.
With all the new girls wanting
to join the Girl Scouts, adult vol-
unteers are needed to help out.
It's very easy for an adult to help
with the Girl Scouts whether he
or she wants to become a leader,
co-leader, office helper, mentor,
or event coordinator.
Join the Girl Scouts today

lachee Bend at 904/386-2131 or

WHAT DOES THE BLOOD OF CHRIST
SAVE US? ANSWER:
(1) Acts 2:38 Repent and be baptized... "for remission of sins"
(2) Acts 22:16 Arise and be baptized, and "wash away thy sins"
(3) 1 Peter 3:21 Baptism "the answer of a good conscience toward
God.
CONCLUSION: NO MATTER What men may say, the Bible,
God's Word, says you must be baptized to be saved! (Mark 16:16) 1
Peter 3:21 tells us that baptism saves us. "We ought to obey God
rather than men." (Acts 5:29)
OUR SOUL DEPENDS ON IT!

ing with a beef base, these two
dishes are enhanced with A.I.
Steak Sauce for a zesty new fla-

old world favorite and a contem-
porary twist and "mangia!"
BEEFY CALZONES
Makes 8 calzones
8 ounces ground beef
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/4 cup finely chopped green..
pepper
I clove garlic, minced
1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
1/3 cup A. 1, Steak Sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella
cheese (about 8 ounces)
2 (11-ounce) packages refrigerat-'
ed bread stick dough*
In skillet, over medium-high
heat, cook ground beef, onion,
pepper and garlic until meat is no
longer pink, stirring to break up
meat; pour off fat. Add tomato
sauce and steak sauce. Heat to a
boil; reduce heat to low. Cook for
5 minutes or until slightly thick-
ened. Remove from heat; stir in
cheese. Cool for at least 15 min-,
utes.
Divide each package of dough
into 8 strips. Using 2 strips each,


coil dough into 8 circles, pressing
edges well to seal. Pat or roll out
to 6-inch circles. Place 1/2 cup
beef mixture in center of each cir-
cle. Brush dough edges lightly
with water; fold dough over; seal-
ing well with tines of fork. Place
on lightly floured baking sheet;
cut 3 to 4 slits in top of each cal-
zone. Bake on lowest oven rack at

Songbirds....


duced, to small wooded patches
separated by agricultural fields,
roads, housing developments,
and power line cuts. These frag-
mented forest areas increase the
chance for songbird predators
such as raccoons, cats, crows,
and blue jays to. enter along the
forest edges.
Neotropical migrants are
more affected by forest fragmen-L
station because, unlike resident,
birds that nest in tree cavities or,
protected, dome-shaped nests,
many migrants nest on the
ground or in open-cup nests vul-
nerable to predators like the cow-
bird.
Cowbirds, who are well-
adapted to fragmented and open
areas, lay eggs in the nests of
songbirds. The songbird parents
hatch and rear the alien young
which crowd out their own
chicks. The brown-headed cow-.
bird has become a serious prob-
lem throughout the United
States, and novw a -new invader,
the shiny, cowbird, also..threatns '
our migrants. -
There seems to be no short-
age of bad news about migratory
birds. They are losing breeding
habitat, wintering grounds, es-
sential places in between, and an-
imals that prey upon them are in-
creasing.
We must act now to protect
migratory birds because of the
complexity of the migratory sys-
tem. In this system, birds fly from
public to private lands, from state
to state, and from nation to na-
tion, requiring protected habitat
in many different locations.
Land acquisition is a key way
to help migratory birds and many
other species. Florida's Preserva-
tion 2000 land buying program.
has made great progress but will
continue to require annual fund-
ing and public support through
the year 2000.
You can also support the,
state's nongame wildlife program
by contributing one or more dol-
lars each time you renew' your
motor vehicle registration. Your
donation funds research and
management programs for non-
game species, including migrato-
ry birds. .
The federal Endangered Spe-
cies Act is scheduled for reau-
thorization this year. Contact
elected representatives to support
endangered species programs and
other legislation that will benefit
migratory birds.
Your backyard can provide a
temporary haven for birds, espe-
cially if It is landscaped with na-
tive plants that provide food and
shelter. A local conservation
group or county extension office
can provide a list of native plants
for your area.

Panther




Kittens




Taken



Two Florida panther kittens,
just 11 days old, were taken from
the wild by researchers Thursday
and will reside at the Jacksonville
Zoo.
The kittens one male and
one female eventually will take
part in the captive breeding ef-
forts to save the Florida panther
from the threat of extinction. Zoo
officials are keeping the kittens in
incubators, and report that both
seem to be in good health and al-
ready have gained some weight
since their capture.
-- Panther No6 23 is- the another
of the two kittens. She was born...
in the Everglades National Park.
Researchers said she was separ-
ated from her mother when she
was a kitten. After an unsuccess-
ful attempt to reunite No. 23 with
her mother, she was kept in cap-
tivity until she was old enough to
be released and survive on her
own.
Although No. 23 was released
back into the Everglades National
Park, she relocated to the adja-
cent Big Cypress National Pre-
serve during her first year of re-
lease, where she has remained.
No. 23 has been monitored by
scientists from the Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission,
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service,
National Park Service and Florida
Department of Natural Resources
since she was returned to the
wild a couple of years ago.
Scientists who track the
movements and behavior of Flori-
da panthers in the wild in south
Florida noted recently that No. 23
was returning to the same site al-
most daily for over a week. That
kind of pattern in a female pan-
ther generally indicates the cat
may have borne a litter. Also, No.
23 had been tracked in the com-
pany of male panther No. 42
three months ago.
Since No. 23 wears a radio
collar that enables researchers to
pinpoint her location, scientists
were able to move in and remove
the kittens after the adult cat left
her den around 4 p.m. Thursday,
August 20. National Park Service
biologist Deborah Jansen worked
with Commission officials Dave
Maehr, Jayde Roof, Dr. Carolyn
Glass and Pauline Nol in finding
and capturing the kittens.
The mother cat will not grieve
for the kittens. In fact, the adult
females typically mate again a
month or two after they lose their
newborn kittens, so removal of
No. 23's kittens will ultimately
serve to increase the overall pop-
ulation of the highly endangered
Florida panther, known to scien-
tists as Felis concolor coryi.
Researchers removed one
other newborn kitten from the
wild last spring. That animal is
doing well at Tampa's Lowry Park
Zoo.
