Traylor Upset Over Ramp

Says State Work On Boat Landing Makes It Useless


County Commissioner Billy
Traylaor-is. more- incensed.than-
ever over the handling of the re-
building project on a boat landing"
at the east end of Road 22 at a
County park near Wewahitchka.
Tuesday night, at the County
Commission meeting, Traylor
asked the Board for support in
requiring the Game and Fish
Commission to do the job over
again. He received the unani-
mous support of his fellow Board
members.
'The landing, as it is now, is


unusable by about 50% of the

powerful vehicle to launch a boat
at this site, if the River is a little
low," Traylor continued, in de-
scribing the problems with the
launch site. "No wonder the state
doesn't have enough money to go
around, if this project and its
waste is any example of how they
do business everywhere. We built
a much better site at White City
for about a fourth of the cost of
this installation," Traylor said.
The Commissioner said the


launch site is fine if the river level'
is at eight to ten feet. "but most of-
the time, it is six feet or less, and.
the way this thing is constructed,
a boat and trailer just drops out
of sight with the extreme slope of
the launch site where it goes into
the water."
Traylor urged, the Board to
get Representative Robert Tram-
mell and Senator Pat Thomas to
"come see how the Game Depart-
ment has wasted state money

rid campaign for the past several
weeks. There are four separate

day's ballot: The Democratic Par-
ty candidate, Bill Clinton and Al
Gore; the Republican candidate,

COUNTY OFFICES
In the county races, the bal-
loting will be a little more compli-
cated. Some of the registered vot-
ers inside the County will not
vote on all the candidates seeking
office, due to the single member
district style of voting in Gulf
County.
Voters from the entire county
will cast their votes for the office

that the attorneys feel some of

afraid to cast their vote in favor.

Deputy Sheriff Stacy Strickland examines a cache of
stolen items burglarized from Money Bayou homes.

Sheriff Solves Burglaries with

Recovery of Stolen Items


The Gulf County Sheriffs De-
partment solved seven home bur-
glaries this week when they re-
covered several items which had
been stolen in the Money Bayou
area this week. The items were
reported stolen October 12, with
seven residences in the beach
area reporting missing items. The
items were recovered this week
from an Eastpoint pawn shop,
where they had been sold.
Sheriff Al Harrison said Le-
land D. Jones, 25, and Ronnie
Jack Strops, 23, both of Apalachi-


cola had been arrested, early this
week and charged with the thefts.
They are being held in the Gulf
County Jail, both facing seven
counts of burglary. Two other
warrants are still to be served in
the case.
Recovered were four reels and
rods, a weed eater, AM/FM stereo
system, microwave oven, power,
saw ahd lawn mower.
Items still missing include a
barbecue grill, water pump, mi-
crowave oven, ceiling fan and
camera.


Port St. Joe's Retail Merchants and ele-
mentary School PTA are joining forces for
the second year in a row to provide the chil-
dren of the community with a safer alterna-
tive to the annual Trick or Treat observance
at Hallowe'en.
Growing dangers throughout the nation
for the young goblins to be roaming around
at night has prompted the Hallowe'en cele-
bration being provided by the two organiza-
tions, combining the energies of the annual
PTA Hallowe'en carnival and the participa-
tion by the merchants in that project.
The alternative to the PTA carnival and
a night on the streets, trick or treating, last
year, was an unexpected success, with over
1,000 children participating. "Everybody
ran out of what they had to offer," said Ta-
mara Lalne, who is heading up the mer-
chant participation in the project. 'They
didn't expect near the participation. But
they are ready this year," she continued.
NIGHT OF ADVENTURE
The night of adventure will take place in


downtown Port St. Joe, with Reid Avenue
being closed to automobile traffic at 6:00
p.m. The PTA has provided a haunted
house, maze and game area on the corner
of Reid Avenue and Fifth, where the chil-
dren can celebrate and still be under the
watchful care of adults. An admission of
50N will admit a child to the haunted house
and the maze as often as they care to go
through.
The Merchants have joined in the plans
and have provided funds for materials to
construct a haunted house and provide a
Trick or Treat activity in their various store-
fronts on Reid Avenue.
The goblin activity will take place Satur-
day night, Hallowe'en night, with most ac-
tivities centered at the corner of Reid Ave-
nue and Fifth Street, on the vacant
property beside the City Hall.
The haunted house will be located in the
Fire Station building, to the rear of the City
Hall, and joined to the game location with a
scary entrance tunnel.


DOWNTOWN PARADE
Festivities will begin with a costumed
children's parade Saturday evening, at 6:30
p.m., on Reid Avenue. The street will be
closed to traffic and given over entirely to
the young ghosts and goblins. The children
will parade north on Fifth Street in their
Hallowe'en costumes and then Trick or
Treat on Reid Avenue all the way back to
the festival grounds. Port St. Joe merchants
will be offering treats to escape tricks in
front of business establishments on the
street, with merchants from all over the
.City participating.
Employees of various business estab-
lishments throughout the City will be
dressed in costumes, highlighting the Hal-
lowe'en season, as they participate in the
Trick or Treat activity. The parade on Reid
Avenue will also be decorated in a Hal-
lowe'en motif, to add to the atmosphere of
the event.
The entire activity will begin at 6:30
p.m., and come to a close around 8:00 p.m.

I'


Floats, goblins, and Jack-d-
lanterns are an odd combination.
I think it's kind'a rare that Hallo-
ween and homecoming fall on the
same week. Although I know it
has happened before. I remember
it so well because of what Yogi
said to LaRenda Bradfleld. We
were down at Mr. Henry Latham's
barn working on our float. I be-
lieve it was my sophomore year.
Me and Ricky Gene and Yogi were
at one end of the 'barn pulling
nails out of some old oak Miss
Pennick thought we might could
re-use. LaRenda, wearing that
Halloween mask with the hatchet
sticking out of. the skull and
blood running down the side of
the ugliest face you ,can imagine,,


Jumps out and yells at us. I know
you've seen that mask at least a
thousand times. We'd seen it two
or three hundred times and this
was 1962. We just kind'a glance
up, see it's LaRenda with a Hallo-
ween mask on, and go back to
our nail pulling. I don't think it
thrilled her that she didn't exactly
send shock waves through- our
bodies. She yanks the mask off
and says, "What do you think of
my Halloween costume didn't
it scare you just a '"---
Yogi looks up, sees LaRenda
now with.' nothing covering her
face, throws up both hands,

F-R-M feed sacks and lets out the

terrified-to-death-get-that-creature-
away-from-me-scream that I have
ever heard He then grabs his
heart, yells "Put it back on put
it back on" and faints dead as a
door knob across two bales of Mr.
Latham's hay.

formance if ever I saw one.


bers, lieutenant governors and U.S. Representatives. U.S. Sena-
tors are limited to twelve years.
10. HOMESTEAD VALUATION LIMITATION. (Art. VII, Sec. 6) Provides
for limiting increases in homestead property valuations for ad valo-
rem tax purposes to a maximum of 3 percent annually and also
provides for reassessment of market values upon changes in owner-
ship. It does not apply to commercial and rental property.
AMENDMENT TEN: Tax on homesteads restricts the amount
of increase to 3% per year on assessed value of home (or in-
crease of consumer price increase if less than 3%). When a
home is sold the assessment will then reflect value based on
the sale.


It was also the first and only
time in her entire life that LaRen-
da Bradfleld was rendered
speechless.
I remember the football
coaches that week. Boy howdy,
they didn't like homecoming or
Halloween. They thought they
were both serious distractions
that would side track us from fo-
cusing on the game. To get'em
both on the .same week was near
'bout more than they could bear.
You could actually see what was
left of Coach Scott's hair leaping
from his head each day. "Men,
stay away from those floats. You
understand! Let the girls do that
stuff. You concentrate on the
game! Listen, homecoming is just
a subversive, communist plot
cooked up by the Huntingdon
High Mustangs to get your minds
off the game Friday nightly And let,
me tell you about Halloween!" He
was near 'bout shouting now.
"Men, Halloween is for' pre-
schoolers. Why would anybody
want to dress up like a witch?


What in the heck is a goblin? It's
not normal going around scaring
people. Men, I tell you Halloween
is a subversive, communist
plot....."
You see now;lwhy me and
Ricky Gene and Yogi was off to-
ward the back of Mr. Latham's
barn. Coach Scott had been
known to check up on you.
On Tuesday after practice,
Coach called us all up, said he
wanted to talk mostly to the
younger players. I straightened
-up a little. "Men, don't be fooled
by those senior girls this week.
Don't let them be a distraction.
They are pretty serious about this
homecoming court and queen
stuff." What is he talking about?
'You watch how many of the sen-
ior girls eat with the Junior high
at lunch. They're .wanting that
vote. Dpn't be surprised if.some
of them show a little more atten-
tion --" You know, Diane Stoner
talked to me for the first time ever
last Friday. I kind'a lost what he
was saying 'til down near the end
where he got back to the Mus-
tangs being the root of all evil.
Diane called me that night.
She said she knew she was a
couple of years older than me but
I had always been one of her fa-
vorites. She said she sure hoped I
got in the game this week.
Down at Mr. Latham's, things
weren't going well with our Trojan
horse. It looked more like a rat.
We weren't going to win anyway. I
heard the junior class was going
to 'put streamers on .Penelope

rade starts, word is they're going
to throw in that pack of Joe
Ezell's wild dogs. They're suppose
to have miniature saddles for the
dogs. It was going to be Penny
against the "Mustangs".
Thursday morning I didn't
have to walk to school. Diane
Stoner gave me a ride.
I was talking to Ricky Gene
as we came back for the second
half of the, football game. We were
only down by 17 points. Neither
of us had. played. "'Did Diane

Maybe We Should Just Draw Straws for President


HAVE YOU MADE up your
mind yet for whom you will cast
your vote for President? Did the
debates help you to make up
your mind "or did they cause you
to decide to cast your ballot for
"None of the Above?"
I'm not a betting man, but I
would almost be willing to wager
that if people voted their convic-
tions and their pocketbook this
year, "None of the Above" would
win in a landslide.
I can see the inauguration
ceremony now, if "None of the
Above" was allowed on the ballot,
for if 'he [or she] were on the bal-
lot, he [or she] would be a shoo-
in.
The Supreme Court Justice
would swear in "None of the
Above" with all the sincerity of a
Justice trying to decide whether
to pray in public or not.
But, let's not dwell on that
too long. I don't want to begin to
sound like Gary Trudeau and his
farce, "Doonesbury".


Etaoin Shrdlu


by Wesley Ramsey


THE DEBATES ARE all over
now and' I can't see where there
was anything enlightening about
any of them. Entertaining, may-
be; but not enlightening.

There's not much of an argu-.
ment for their even being enter-
taining. Actually it was a sort of a
sham to find out that these three
characters are our only choice for
President. There's not much there
to-select from, if what we are real-
ly interested in is change. If what
you are interested in is someone
at the tiller of the ship of state
with a steady hand in these tou-
bled and uncertain times, you-


may have a difficult time inaling t
a choice.
I'm ,not laboring under the,
misapprehension that my voting'
for thb "right" candidate will settle.
the economic mess of the World'
or our nation overnight, just b6e-
cause a -particular candidate said"
he could handle it. The economy:
will have to wait on the rest'6f the'
world to right its econonfic prob-
lems and ours will ,be taken are.
of also.
The economy and jobs and?
people out of work seem to be the.
main denominator for selecting a
president. You, can't, sell, goods to.
a world which has no money to;


buy them. If you're not selling,
you have 'no need for people to
produce. Our main need econom-
ically, is to learn once again how
to produce the best; products in
the world and people still buying,
will buy ours.

I'M LOOKING FOR other cri-
teria to justify my voting for a
President this year.
For Instance; which candi-
date is against abortion? I cer-
thinly can't vote for a President.
who favors abortio6i. Which can-
didate is in favor of a balanced
budget' amendment? It's .got to
come if our nation is to put' its ec-
onomic house in order [voting for
the cause of the problem will' set-
tle it]. The candidate I vote for will
have to provide another cure for
our education mess other' than
throwing dollars at it. I firmly be-
lieve that's part of the problem
now. We. have provided too many
dollars and not required enough
results. .- ;


There's other reasons for vot-
ing for one candidate or' another
which 'has nothing to do with
whether he speaks with a twang
or with a rasp; whether he is a
red head,'dark hair, or very little'
hair.
Actually, you may not relish
voting for either of the candi-
dates. Maybe that's a good posi-
tion for us to be in. We'll select
our president more for what he
believes in' rather than how he
looks, a pleasing. grin, a friendly
attitude, or what he says.
SIT JUST' MIGHT be that part
.,of our nation's problems are
:caused by the President being
:preoccupied with seeking re-
election. .President Bush has
" seemed occupied with little else
these days and for the past year.
Every move seems calculated by
what it will do for chances of re-
election.
If we send Clinton to the
White House, we'll get a year of


learning where he is:; one year of
getting his .presidential program
rolling and two years of thinking
about re-election.
With Bush, yotu don't have to
worry about his two years of cam-
paigning for re-elecion.
The Congress would have
Ross Perot on the carpet so often
reminding him of the proper pro-
cedure the Constitution requires
for doing things, he unfortunately
wouldn't have time to do all the
wonderful things he plans to do.
IF I'VE RAMBLED it's be-
cause I have no reason to be wild-
ly enthusiastic about either of the
candidates. Usually I am at .least
mildly enthusiastic about one or
the other candidate, but not this

The revisions to the Code of the City of Port St. Joe, Sections 10-20 to
10-30, concerning garbage and recyclables collection become effective
on Friday, October 30, 1992.
Beginning with this date, households must take the following actions in
order to be in compliance with the Code revisions:
1. Place garbage only, ad defined in the instructions that were dis-
tribute with the City-provided container, in a plastic bag at the
bottom of the container.
2. Place recyclables only, as defined in the instructions, in a plas-
tic bag on top of the garbage bag in the container.
3. Place the City-provided container at the alley or roadway along
the usual collection route on collection days.
4. Remove the container when empty on the same day that it is
emptied.

If any owner or tenant fails to separate garbage from recyclables, such
person shall be issued a citation requiring such separation. If such per-
son does not thereafter begin compliance within 30 days, then the next
ensuing statement shall include a surcharge to defray the City's costs
for separation.

and occult expert William Heim,


the Celts held the pagan festival
Samhain in the fall of each year.
It was then that they believed the
dead were allowed to visit their
relatives during the night To ac-
commodate these spirits, the
Celts performed certain rituals
that have survived the ages and
are now Halloween traditions in

The wearing of a mask is be-
lieved to have originated when
ancient peoples wore them to imi-
tate the spirits walking the earth
and also to frighten them away,
Heim says.
The tradition of trick-or-
treating came from an old prac-
tice of leaving food outside the
doors for the wandering spirits,
Heim says. Children, who were
given the job of collecting wood
for the fires built to comfort the
spirits, often took the food.
'That's why we now give peo-
ple food in hopes that they won't
play tricks on us," said Helm.
"For the ancient people, it
was a very scary time of year," he
said. 'The Celts noticed that the
days were becoming shorter and
the nights longer they believed
the sun was dying so they built
large bonfires in order to give en-
ergy to strengthen the sun."
In the seventh century, Ro-
man Catholics made Halloween a
Christian holiday in an, effort to
distract pagan worship that was
prevalent .throughout Europe.
The word Halloween means the
eve of All-Saints Day, which is
still celebrated by Catholics on
November 1.
The .mjack-o-lantern stems
from an Irish tale. "Jack" was a
man so cantankerous and wicked
he couldn't get into heaven and
the devil didn't want him in hell.
The devil chased him away by
throwing a glowing coal, which
Jack picked up and put inside a
hollowed-out turnip he had been
eating. He used the lighted turnip
to see as he wandered the earth
until the end of time. When the
legend crossed the Atlantic, the

SHERIFF


Statistics compiled by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement
in 1991 indicate that the crime fighting ability of the Gulf County
Sheriff's Office had fallen to an all time LOW!


ARREST RATE FOR BURGLARIES COMMITTED IN GULF COUNTY 1991 0%
TOTAL ARRESTS FOR SALE AND POSSESSION OF ILLEGAL DRUGS IN GULF COUNTY 1991.- 13
OVERALL CRIME CLEARANCE RATE IN GULF COUNTY 1991 8.8%
NOTE: Figures furnished by FDLE.
During the past year, I have worked long and difficult hours preparing myself for the job of Sheriff. To begin with, I attended
graduated from Basic Law Enforcement Standards at Gulf Coast Community College in Panama City. Secondly, I campaigned
stop throughout Gulf County and learned first hand what the voters expect from their Sheriff's Office.

If elected on November 3rd, I can assure the voters of this County that I will work just as hard being their Sheriff as I have in seek-
ing the office. One of my first tasks will be to reverse the policies which led to the embarrassingly low crime'fighting statistics cit-
ed by FDLEI.will begin by employing a capable full-time investigator. Secondly, I will require all Deputy Sheriffs, including myself,
to undergo continuingg e'ducatiori and training in order to keep us abreast of the latest changes in criminal procedure and law en-
forcement techniques. Thirdly, I will work tirelessly to develop a level of trust and team work with area law enforcement that will al-
low us to marshal our forces and bring a maximum degree of pressure to bear upon the criminal element.
In summary, I will not rest until the Gulf County Sheriff's Office has been restored to a capable crime fighting organization.

Re-elect U.S. Congressman



Pete Peterson
A DFFRET INDOFCOGRSSA


When I ran for office two years ago, I
promised to listen to the people throughout the
District. When I got to Washington, I followed
their advice.

wanted change. They told me this in over 50 town
hall meetings. I have carried their message.
I have worked to be a different kind of
Congressman: accessible, in touch, and involved
in solving the problems confronting the people
who elected me. With my announcement for
reelection, I renew my promise of two years ago to
be a positive force for change in North Florida and
in Washington.

Sharks Defeat Walton, 20-19


Eric Monteiro's final try to
kick an extra point sailed through
the uprights with 4:47 left in the
game Friday night, to give the
Sharks the margin they needed to
win, 20-19, over the Walton
Braves of DeFuniak Springs last
Friday night. The kick spoiled
Walton's homecoming, but gave
the Sharks their first two game
win streak in two seasons.
Coming off a decisive 28-0
win over Blountstown the week
before, the Sharks kept their
new-found momentum going as
they breached the Braves line
time after time and quarterback
Jason Maxwell laid pass after
pass right in the hands of his re-
ceivers, completing seven of 16
attempts for 110 yards passing
and 196 rushing.
Things started badly for the
Sharks. The Braves received the
opening kick-off and marched
straight up the field, using up
four and a half minutes on the
clock, scoring on a 24 yard pass

play; one of three they completed
the entire game.
The Sharks retaliated in the
opening minutes of the second
quarter. As the quarter began,
the Sharks were on Walton's 29
with a third and four. Kevin Lee
picked up the first down with five
yards through the middle. Sandy
Quinn swung around right end
on a 12-yard gallop, then scored
on the very next play, as he
fought his way to the goal line,
again coming around the end.
Monteiro's kick was good and the
score was tied.
Walton's Chris Floyd then
came chugging through the mid-
dle of the line on a five-yard scor-
ing dash with 5:11 left on the
half. The kick went wide and that
proved to be the difference in the
game.
Jason Hathaway sacked the
Walton quarterback, Floyd, with
three minutes left in the half,
forcing the Braves to kick the ball
away, but Allen Ingle intercepted


a Shark pass on the Walton 33.
The Braves fumbled the ball on
the first play and Bob Bernal re-
covered for the Sharks to cut off
another Brave threat, just prior to
the half.
As the second half began, a
pumped up Shark team drove the
ball from their own 27 the length
of the field to score on a 27 yard
pass play to Josh Colbert, to tie
the game, 13-13, when Monteiro's
kick was blocked. The drive was
sparked by a completed 40 yard
halfback pass from Quinn to Col-
bert.
Again, the Shark defense put
their team in business, as Devon


Thomas intercepted a Floyd pass
and the Sharks drove to the Wal-
ton 10 before the drive sputtered
and died. It died on a bad snap
for a field goal attempt, when
holder Josh Colbert had his des-
peration pass picked off by Hu-
bert Campbell who ran all the
way back to the Walton one yard
line before Monteiro knocked him
out of bounds. On the first play'
Shelby Truett put the Braves
ahead, 19-13, when Walton again
failed to get an extra point kick to
split the uprights.
The Sharks came roaring
right back at the Braves and
Quinn ripped off a 44 yard gallop
to the Walton 22. Five plays later,
Quinn scored on a nine yard
dash, but the ball was called
back by a motion penalty. Antwi-
one Allen brought the ball back to
the 10 anrd then a 10-yard scor-
ing pass to Quinn put the Sharks
even, 19-19. Monteiro sent his ex-
tra point, game winning kick
.squarely through, the uprights for
the deciding point, making the fi-
nal score, 20-19.

City Gets Grant
for Tree Planting
Florida Agriculture Commis-
sioner Bob Crawford announced
that 27 urban and community fo-
restry programs across Florida
have been selected to receive
$200,000 in federal matching
grants.
The grants awarded to
qualified applicants, including
counties, cities, towns, non-profit
organizations, volunteer groups
and educational institutions -
are part of the 1992 America The
Beautiful Urban and Community
Forestry Grant Program. Grants
were awarded on a 50-50 match-
ing basis.
'These federal funds will help
to develop and enhance urban
and community forestry pro-
grams in Florida," Crawford said.
'These programs will improve
Florida's environment through
tree planting and urban forestry
management initiatives at the lo-
cal level."
The $200,000 for the America
The Beautiful program brings
Florida's federal funding total for
urban and community forestry in-
itiatives to nearly $1 million for
1992. Sixty-two communities and
organizations have also been se-
lected to receive $759,623 from
the U.S. Small Business Adminis-
trat1in for implementation of the
National Small Business Tree
Planting Program.
The City of Port St. Joe re-
ceived $3,125 for demonstration

teams in the district *right now
with Quincy-Shanks and Port St.
Joe close behind. Our goal for
this season is to qualify for the
state cross country meet. Only
two teams from our district will
qualify, and with only three
weeks until district, we need to
keep improving for us to accom-
plish our goal," ended Coach
Gowan.
This Saturday, the Purple
Pack will compete in the Bay
County Invitational at Tyndall Air
Force Base. The goal Saturday is
to finish among the top three
teams.

REDUCING

CAVITIES BY 65%


Because studies have.
shown that the addition of a
small amount of fluoride to the
water supply can reduce cavi-
ties by as much as 65%, some
7,000 communities have chosen
to treat their water with fluoride
over the past 30 years. Fluoride
is the single most effective ele-
ment we have today for prevent-
ing tooth decay.
There are other methods of
applying fluoride to the teeth
such as: topical application at
your dentist's office; at-home
application of fluoride gel by a
mouthguard type applicator;
special fluoride mouth rinses;
fluoride tablets; and brushing
with accepted fluoride tooth-
paste. But, as a whole, fluoridat-
ed water has proven to be the
most effective and simplest ap-
plication.
Is fluoridation safe? Yes! Lit-


rally hundreds of carefully con-
ducted scientific research stud-
ies have shown that the use of
fluoride at the levels recom-
mended for optimum dental
health (about one part per, mil-
lion in water) has no harmful ef-
fects. Its use is supported by vir-
tually all national and
international health organiza-
tions. Tap water here in Port St.
Joe has approximately the right
amount of fluoride in it, but the
surrounding areas (Oak Grove,
The Beaches, Overstreet, White
City, etc.) may not. If you would
like to have your water tested
for free, call us! '

vice to promote better dental

" North Florida Medical Receives $421,418 Grant


North Florida Medical Cen-
ters, Inc., of Wewahitchka, has
been awarded a $421,418.00
grant by the U.S. Department of
Health and Human Services to
open a new community health
center in Bristol. In announcing
the grant award, the HHS secre-
tary, Louis W. Sullivan, stated,
"This award will help provide
medical care, both preventive and
primary care, to underserved pop-
ulations...". Secretary Sullivan
linked this expansion of services
to the administration's plan for
improving the nation's health
care system.
Chief Executive Officer of
North Florida Medical Centers,


Inc., Jim McKnight, commented,
"We are ecstatic and feel very for-
tunate to receive this grant
award." According to McKnight,
there were 30 applications in
Florida and this grant was the
only one awarded to an existing
center. North Florida Medical
Centers operate three other com-
munity health centers located in
Wewahitchka, Carrabelle, and
Panacea. McKnight indicated that
the center will integrate its servic-
es with other health care organi-
zations in Liberty and Calhoun
counties.
The Liberty Medical Center
will be located in the present
Bristol Pharmacy on Highway 20.


After renovations are complete, it
will house six exam rooms, one
treatment room, x-ray, lab, edu-
cation/conference room, waiting
area, and office space. Services
will include primary medical care,
x-ray, diagnostic lab, preventive
and supplemental health servic-
es.
According to Dr. Les Wilson,
Medical Director for North Florida
Medical Centers, the center will
initially be staffed by a Board cer-
tified physician, nurse practition-
er, nurse, medical assistant, case
manager, receptionist, insurance
clerk, and other support staff. Dr.
Wilson indicated that the recruit-
ment of professional staff has be-


gun and said, 'We have a number
of good prospects. Our first con-
cern is to recruit the best quali-
fied physician available to ensure
the highest quality of care. Addi-
tionally, we want to be part of the
existing health care system in the
area, and are now exploring the
possibilities of developing the
center into a training site for phy-
sicians and/or nurse practition-
ers."
It is anticipated that the Lib-
erty Medical Center will open dur-
ing the first part of February. Ser-
vices will be available to all area


residents and the center will ac-
cept assignment for Medicare,
Medicaid, and private insurance.
Additionally, a sliding fee scale,
which discounts the services to
low income families, will be avail-
able. McKnight stated, "The slid-
ing fee program is the best service
that we provide because it makes
health care available to the work-
ing poor who do not have health
insurance and do not qualify for
Medicaid or Medicare."
North Florida Medical Cen-
ters, Inc. is a private, not for prof-
it, health care corporation with
the expressed mission of provid-


ing quality medical care to the
people of rural, medically under-
served communities. The corpora-
tion operates under the auspices
of a volunteer board made up of
people from each of the communi-
ties it serves. The current expan-
sion into Liberty County will re-
quire the board to be expanded to
include three members from the
Liberty County area. The corpora-
tion receives grant funds from
Federal and private sources,
along with some funding from lo-
cal government. These funds total
35% of the operating budget of
the corporation.

Alex Chan, Student of the Week


Alex Chan, the eight year old
son of Linda and Bert Chan, is in
the third grade Student of the
Week. Alex is in the classroom of
Linda Whitfield. His favorite sub-
ject is math, though he excels in
them all. He admires Dave Jus-
tice, right fielder of the Atlanta
Braves, and would like to be a
professional baseball player when
he grows up. (Even though his
dad would like him to be a doc-
torl) Alex's favorite TV show is
Family Matters. If he could go
anywhere in the world, it would
be to visit China and the Philip-
pines. Alex loves to read and his
favorite book is Challenge At Sec-
ond Base. At school, Alex likes to
play with classmate Ricky Collins
and at home, out of necessity and
choice, he like to play with his
older brother, Bert. Alex had this
to say about himself, "I am a good
baseball player, good in math, a
good basketball player, and a
good football player. I'm a good
student and I love school. I love
my family because we have lots of
# fun together." He finished the

By Larry A. Mathes

WOW! What a homecoming! Except for not winning the game,
we had what many said was the best homecoming celebration in
years. Judging by the crowd of alumni that joined us at school Fri-
day for lunch, I'd have to agree. Alumni dating back to 1937 were
on hand to relive old experiences. A big thanks to our present stu-
dents for their excellent participation and cooperation, helping to
both decorate and make visiting alumni feel at home. And a big
thanks also goes to Mrs. Debbie Cole and Miss Lisa Ingram, co-
sponsors of our Student Council. Considering this was their first at-
tempt at putting on the show, including a great parade in town and
the half-time coronation and the dance that night, everything went
well and was well received by students, alumni, and just plain fans
of W.H.S.
Now take a deep breath, exhale, and back to work The sec-
ond six weeks ends November 4th please stay behind your stu-
dent (s) and push them to finish strong, rather than "cruisin' in".
Events coming up shortly include a highway cleanup day spon-
sored by the National Honor Society. When you see them on Satur-
day morning, toot your horn, but drive carefully. Another event No-
vember 11th is Veterans' Day. A program is planned at W.E.S., and
the high school will recognize the event with a special flag raising
by the NJROTC and the National Anthem by one or more trumpet-
ers from the W.H.S. band.
It's drawing closer November 3rd is election day for both lo-
cal and general races. Make plans to vote your convictions. Don't let
others do your civic duty your vote does count, whether you back
the winning candidate or not.
Halloween (October 31) marks the start of four uninterrupted
weeks of classes, with the next break being the Thanksgiving break.
During that period, we'll be making the transition from football and
volleyball to basketball. Now let's see how many games per week
have to be squeezed in?
A plus for all students the annual book fair starts Monday in
the media center. Remind your student he/she can purchase books
for a nominal fee. Many new titles and subject areas will be availa-
ble.

January


Medicare patients who have met their deductible for 1992 can save out-of-pocket
expenses for any cataract or other eye surgery performed before January 1, 1993.

In fact, Medicare patients who have met their 1992 deductible and have an adequate
co-insurance can have cataract surgery performed at no cost, but only if the procedure
is performed before January 1, 1993.

The dawn of the new year will require all Medicare patients to meet their deductible
again for any eye surgery in 1993, and it is possible that the deductible could increase
on January 1,1993 resultingin an even greater payment requirement. If you have been
postponing cataract or other eye surgery, acting now, before 1993 arrives, could mean
significant savings for you.

Call your eye doctor or Eye Center South today and we will be happy to answer your
questions or assist you in scheduling your surgery before the new year brings a new
deductible.

Fall is in the air, and the
changing of the seasons brings
about the 29th Annual Florida
Seafood Festival. The Festival is
held each year over the first
weekend in November, in the his-
toric town of Apalachicola, locat-
ed on the Gulf of Mexico. The
town sits on the beautiful Apa-
lachicola Bay at its junction with
the Apalachicola River. From


these waters are harvested 90
percent of the oysters and 52 per-
cent of the entire shellfish output
of Florida.
But the Florida Seafood Festi-
val is more than just a marine
event, and more than just a trib-
ute to the seafood industry. It is
an acknowledgement of a way of
life that exists only on the coast.
The people who live by the sea


and because of the sea, are proud
to bring you this Festival. The
people in this area depend on the
sea, and because of that, they
fight to preserve the unison be-
tween nature and man. In con-
trast to our modem world, ever
changing by technology where it
is rush, rush, rush, Apalachicola
offers a lifestyle with a slower
pace, an honest chance, and a

Project members met October
20th at Mexico Beach City Hall at
10:00 a.m. with President Jackie,
Spann calling the meeting to or-
der on a sad but understandable
note for all of the CIP members.
Jackie and Connie Johnson, vice
president of CIP, are both re-
questing to step down from their
offices, due to both persons toss-
ing their hats into the political
arena of Mexico Beach and run-
ning for the office of Mayor and
Councilwoman positions.
CIP is a non political organi-
zation and intends to stay so. CIP
members understand and respect
Jackie and Connie's stands, so all
reluctantly accepted, their resig-
nations with a show of hands.
True, they have both stepped
down in office, but in no way are
they giving up CIP. Whenever the
need, they both will still be there
and getting their hands as dirty
from works as the rest of the
members.
Fred Little was nominated
and accepted the temporary posi-
tion of president, and Helen Kipp
accepted the vice president posi-
tion, until a regular election of of-
ficers to be held at the December
meeting.

The P.T.O. wishes to extend
an invitation to all to attend their
1992 Fall Festival' to be held Fri-
day, October 30 from noon until
2:00 p.m. CT at the school cam-

training.
The center's budget is sup-
plied by HRS, the school system,
private donations, and contribu-
tions from county and city gov-
ernments.
Part, if not the biggest part of
ARC's activities, is providing
management of a system which
furnishes public transportation to
the disadvantaged, the disabled
and others not able to provide for
their own transportation. The
system operates five vans, provid-
ed from the state transportation
pool. Two of the vans are
equipped with a power lift to ac-
commodate wheel chairs.
The transportation is provid-
ed for all agencies which has a
need for transportation for their
clients. Transportation is fur-
nished to those who qualify, for
trips to the doctor, necessary
shopping, and other necessary
trips. 'This is not a public bus,"
Mrs. Fitzgerald said, "Our pas-
sengers must have no other
means of transportation nor be
able to furnish it."
The vans are authorized to
transport their clients over a radi-
us of about 350 miles.

Tips ,for,


Vegetable


Garden
It may be too late to put in
the traditional fall garden. Being
able to grow at least something
most anytime we want,, makes
vegetable gardening in Florida all
that more rewarding. .
If planting a winter garden,
there are a number of vegetables
that can be set out during the
months of October and November
that tolerate cold well. These in-
clude beets, broccoli, cabbage,
carrots, collards, chinese cab-
bage, mustard, onions, radishes
and spinach. If one is to plant
s.iawberries'this year, October is
considered a good month to do
that. In most cases, locating
transplants rather than seed, will
help get a jump on that first cold
snap.
For, anyone who is intending
to do a spring garden, October
and November are the months we
try to encourage having soil test-
ed. Do it early in case a pH ad-
justment is needed. Such adjust-
ment should occur three, (3)
months before planting. Having
soil tested for pH is the only way
to determine if liming is needed.
Never assume that lime is neces-
sary unless a test has been run.
Lime can remain active in the soil
for up to three years after appli-
cation. Since over-liming can
cause deficiencies in zinc, iron,
copper, boron, molybdenum and
manganese, annual application
without prior testing is sure to
lead to a serious problem with
time.'
The needles and leaves have
.begun to fall, using them as
mulch In the gardens is also a
possibility. Lay 4-6 inches of
these between the rows of vegeta-
bles. This will do several good
things for the% garden: mulches
will slowly rot to produce compost
in place that when turned in, at
the end of the season, will help
