C emission Makes Attempt to Rescue Constitution Museum


The City Commission took action at their regular meeting
Tuesday fight, to oppose the action taken by the Florida Board
of Parks M6nday in regard to closure of Constitution Museum
State Park, here in Port St. Joe.
In making-thq motion to take action, Commissioner Charles
Tharpe remarked, "If there is any park in Florida which should
remain open, it Should be Constitution Park and its significance
to the origin of Florida as a state."
Constitution Museum State Park sits on thee location of the
building used by the Territorial leaders to draft and approve the
first constitution of the new state of Florida, after it received
state-hood in 1837. Up to that time, the old city' of St. Joseph
was one of the largest cities in the new territory and was in
strong competition with Apalachicola for the cotton shipping


business, coming down the Chattahoochee-Apalachicola river
system.
Mayor Frank Pate showed the unanimous nature of the con-
cern over the future of Constitution Museum by remarking, "I
had that on my list of things to bring up, too. We should prepare
a resolution and send it to Representative Trammell, Senator Pat
Thomas, the Park Board, the Cabinet and the Governor, oppos-
ing the closing of this particular park because of its historic sig-
nificance."
The Commission was unanimous in. expressing official oppo-
sition to the closing of the park and letting that opposition be
known wherever such decisions are made in the state of Florida.
Commissioner Bill Wood remarked, 'The Governor is how
holding the state parks hostage just as he did the school system.
{


I'm opposed to its [Constitution Museum] being closed."
Mayor Pate said he wasn't in favor of the City or the County
taking over of the Museum as the Park Service suggested as an
alternative to closing. 'The Museum marks an important hap-
pening in the history of the state as a whole and should be pre-
served by the state," he remarked.
The museum was first built at the urging of the St. Joseph
Historical Society, to house some of the historic trappings which
were used in the creation of the Constitution. A search of the
state archives, at the time, failed to produce the original Consti-
tution document, pointing to a need for such a structure at the
Constitution Museum. The original document was later found in
a private home. The Museum was later enlarged and a replica of
Constitution Hall built, along with several animated mannequins
installed which are in the act of signing the old document.


Parks Closing 38 Facilities;


SMuseum, Dead Lakes -on List


The Division of Recreation and Parks tossed
out a verbal grenade Monday, which struck 38
state parks a stunning blidv. The Division of
the Department of Natural Resources revealed
that the parks and 150 park rangers and work-
ers would lose their jobs in an economy move
due to a shortage of income from the documen-
tary stamp tax which supports the parks.
Constitution Convention State Park here
in Port St. Joe and Dead Lakes State Park in
Wewahitchka, are listed as two of the casu-
alties, to be closed January 1, if an alterna-
tive source of revenue is not found in a spe-
cial session of the Legislature in December.
Constitution Convention State Park is built
around the historic event of Florida's first State
Constitution being drawn up and signed here
in old St. Joseph, once one of the largest cities
in Territorial Florida. The museum marks a
unique part of Florida history.
The Dead Lakes state park has been under
a threat of closing by the Park Service for sever-
al years, but has managed to hang on. It is a
recreation park on the shore of the Dead Lakes,
north of Wewahitchka. Lathey Green is the
Ranger in charge.
Reminiscent of the fund shortage in the
school system this past year, the Park Service
0, is holding the hammer over the head of the 38
parks pending additional revenue being ap-


proved. Ranger Eddie Ranew, of the Constitu-
tion Park said, "They won't 'close if the Legisla-
ture approves more funds during the special
session."
The parks slated for closure were selected
on a basis of a lack of use by the general pub-
lic. An official with the park service said they
tried to target parks with less than 30,000 visi-
tors in a year. Ranew said Constitution Con-
ventibn Museum has about 2,000 visitors in a
year,: but said, 'This -Museum is important to
Florida's history. We have a lot of school kids
come. here every year to see, first hand, how
and where Florida first started as a state." Ra-
new said.
Ranew stated, "We didn't know anything
about the proposed closing until Monday morn-
ing, when we were all notified of the decision."
Park Service officials said DNR is projecting
a revenue shortfall of over $7 million. This is
partially due to the decrease in a portion of the
documentary stamp tax because of the lag in
real estate sales. A major portion of the park
service budget depends on this source of reve-
nue.
The St. Joseph Historical Society -is expect-
ed to oppose the closing of the Constitution
Museum, since it was largely through their ef-
forts that the museum was built and opened,
several years ago.


R. MARION CRAIG

Marion 'Coach'

Craig Dead

at Age 71
Robert Marion Craig, wno
had been a fixture in the Gulf
County School system for 36
years prior to his retirement in
1984, passed y after a long
illness Thursday of last week.
Craig, who was affectionately
known as "Coach" by nearly eve-
ryone, had been a coach, superin-
tendent and teacher in the sys-
tem. He was Superintendent
when Gulf County built its two
new high school complexes and
was the prime mover in getting.
the project accomplished. After
he stepped down from the Super-
intendent's position, the gymna-
sium of Port St. Joe High School
was named in his honor.
Marion Craig had just fin-
ished a stint in the paratroopers,
after graduating from Clemson
University, and was playing with
a professional football team
known as The Seahawks, when
Port St. Joe Principal W. A. Big-
gart contacted him at his home in
Greenville, South Carolina about
becoming coach at Port St. Joe
High School.
He coached football, basket-
ball and every other kind of "ball"
played at the school, from 1947
until 1963, and taught classes on
the side. He left the system for a
year, in 1964, to return to school
and earn his Master's Degree. He
was elected Superintendent of
Schools in 1964 and served in
that capacity until 1972. In 1973,
he returned to the classroom,
teaching social studies until
1984, when he retired.
Marion Craig was respected

Two teen-age girls put the
law enforcement community on
the alert last Friday, when their
car was found, wrecked, blood
stains on the interior and unoc-
cupied.
The car, which had been
overturned at the end of Seventh
Street in Highland View, was
found by hunters Friday morning
and reported to the Gulf County
Sheriffs office. Immediately a
search for the owner was
launched. David Reed of Port St.
Joe was found to have leased the
car. Reed said his daughter,
Leanne, was driving the car and
was spending the night with a
friend.
Officers then stepped up their
search for Leanne Reed and her
friend, Jennifer Brewer, fearing
foul play involving the two girls.
The two girls were located at
the Brewer home in just a short
while and the true story told, as
to what had happened.
The girls had been driving
around Thursday night and hit a
mud puddle on the dirt, causing
Reed to lose control. The car over-
turned, causing the girls to suffer
cuts and bruises. The girls left


the car and went to Brewer's
home to spend the remainder of
the night, expressing fear of tell-
ing their parents of the accident.
The Florida Highway Patrol
was called in to investigate the
accident and charged the two
girls with leaving the scene of an
accident.


Port St. Joe's Constitutional Museum is on a list of state
parks scheduled to be closed due to lack of funds. The list-
was released Monday to park employees.



Special Service To

Express Thanks

Of Community

Churches of the community will join in a united wor-
ship service, Tuesday, November 27, giving thanks for
the many blessings the community has experienced dur-
ing the past year. The special services will begin at 7:00
p.m., and will feature choirs and musical groups from
most of the churches of Port St. Joe.
The worship program is in celebration of the Thanks-
giving holiday.
Sponsored by the Ministerial Association, composed
of ministers of the various churches in the Port St. Joe
area, the program will be held in the auditorium of the
First Baptist Church, on Third Street.
This special Thanksgiving program has been extreme-
ly well attended in past years. The Ministerial Associa-
tion urges that you plan, now, to attend and participate
in the special hour to give thanks.
There will be a reception immediately following the
Thanksgiving program.



City to Trade Inspection

Services with Gulf Co.

on Six Month Trial


The City Commission agreed
to enter into an agreement with
the Gulf County Commission
Tuesday night to share services
in two specialties.
Mayor Frank Pate recom-
mended that the City trade fire
inspector services to the County,
for the services of their building
inspector. "We'll have to turn the
inspection fees over to the County.
to help pay for his work and some
fees will go up slightly," the May-
or remarked.
The Commission and the
County Building Department
have negotiated off and on for
most of the year, in an attempt to
come up. with a plan which would
serve both governments without
being too costly to either. The
City does not have enough con-
struction activity to keep an in-
spector with the necessary exper-
tise and knowledge of the state
and federal rules on a full time
basis. The Commission has been
utilizing the services of Al Gay on
a part time basis.
The City has one of its em-
ployees, Al Ray, trained to state
specifications to perform fire in-
spections. The County building
inspector, Don Butler, is also
trained to perform his specialty.
The City and County govern-


ments will hammer out an agree-
ment and enter into a six month
trial.
STREET LIGHTS
The extension of Garrison Av-
enue is once again receiving the
attention of the Commission. Part
of the street is outside the City
Limits and is lacking in some of
the amenities, such as street
lights, sidewalks, etc.
In a recent session, the Com-
mission agreed to construct a
sidewalk on the street from 20th
Street to Niles Road, for school
children to walk to and from
school without having to walk
down the shoulder of the street.
Tuesday, Commissioner
Tharpe suggested that Florida
Power be contacted to survey the
roughly one-half mile of street, to
give a price on extending street
lights to Ward Ridge.
The Commission agreed to
the survey.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business, during the
short session, the Commission:
-Scheduled a get-acquainted
reception for new City Clerk, Jim
Maloy on Sunday, December 6
from 3 to 5 p.m.
-Agreed to begin putting up
Christmas decorations next week.
in order to get them all up prior
to the annual Christmas parade.

Tough Love

It isn't often that a person comes along who has such an Im-
pact on so many impressionable young lives as did Robert Mari-
on Craig. You either loved Marion Craig, hated him or tolerated
him. There was no in-between. We were one of those who loved
the man, despite his rough, gruff facade.
Nobody can deny the fact that Marion Craig passed on a win-
ning attitude to many young people during his long life here in
Port St. Joe. The evidence of his influence is everywhere. In al-
most every case, his influence produced a man whose main pur-
pose was to win! His charges fared very well and made their
mark in life.
Marion Craig made his mark in life, too. True, he didn't al-
ways use the most genteel language in his conversation. It's
been said that he was a stubborn man. All of these things were
known about the man, including the temper which would get
him in trouble at times. He could scald a person with his tongue
and make him cringe without ever lifting a hand. Wherever he
went, one knew he was present.
But the side of Marion Craig which drew the admiration bf
his young charges on the football field, the basketball court, the
baseball field and especially in the classroom, was the fact that
every young person he ever came in contact with knew, unequiv-
ocally, that Marion Craig's rough, gruff facade was reserved for
anyone-just anyone-who would mistreat one of his young
charges.
Over the years, the man the coach, the surrogate father,
bought shoes, jackets, pants and food for many of his kids who
didn't have any. He was furnishing the support for dependent
children before the state of Florida ever knew there was such a
thing as a dependent child. He kicked more than one juvenile
delinquent in the butt and forced him to get to work and make
something of himself. He didn't handle a wayward youth very
easy, but his method certainly produced results.
The man was a scholar. He had a vocabulary which would
serve a doctor of philosophy to good advantage, or-regrettably-
a sailor very adequately. Craig was no saint, as he would admit.
He was an advocate of "tough love" for kids. He loved them genu-
inely, despite his rough edges, and they knew it. You can't fool a
kid about such matters.


Will Be Changes
With the preliminaries now taking place in readiness to his
occupying the White House, folks have to concede that things
are going to change if the actions of President-elect Bill Clinton
during the last few days are any indication. For better or worse,
there are going to be changes.
Some of the most emotional changes have already been an-
nounced by the President-elect. He has said he will grant asylum
hearings and welcome Haitian political refugees to the United
States; a decision which is sure to step up the flow of Haitians to
Florida. Another decision is to overturn Bush's position on abor-
tion.
Both these decisions are emotional ones for Florida, which
has to bear the brunt of the incoming Haitians and which has a
history of burning and blowing up abortion clinics.
Witl, South Florida still wallowing in the results of destruc-
tiori. irl.Hurricane Andrew, grumbling all the while Qver,aJack
of Ate and federal relief money, the expense of dealing with
thousands of Haitian refugees at the expense of the tax payer
isn't going to digest very well with the people of Miami and
Homestead. Unless the matter of refugees is handled very care-
fully, the situation in South Florida is likely to explode into
much the same reaction the Germans are having now, due to an
influx of refugees in their country.
It's bad for a nation to be selfish in matters of life or death,
but the people of South Florida are likely to call it "self preserva-
tion."


Pot Calling Kettle Black
Sister Soljah, the mouthy rap singer with a bad attitude, had
some words of advice for college students the other day, when
she advised them to quit sleeping around because of the heavy
consequences of the practice.

Sister was right on with her advice, but she hardly qualifies
as a person who sets themselves up as a role model. She even
manages to infiltrate racism into her advice by referring to de-
feated President Bush as a racist. He was racist, according to
Soljah, but he gave good advice about sex.
The Sister should examine her own attitude, about racism,
that is. She is eat up with it!

Where Was That Free Hunting License When I Was Going Every Saturday


I TURNED 65 a few months
ago and tried to keep it a secret.
Not that I am vain about my age,
but so many things kick in auto-
matically that I am not ready for
as yet.
For instance, at age 65, one
is eligible for medicare. I was
ready for that one. Actually, I wel-
comed it with open arms because
I am one of the millions of Ameri-
cans who cannot purchase medi-
cal insurance. They look at me
and say, "Hey boy, not you! No
sirl You have falling out hair and
might cost us some money in the
future." I've been riding on my
reputation for years, without
medical insurance ... until nowl
Another thing is Social Secur-
ity. I thought you had to apply for
that stuff. I sent in a form when I
turned 65 and told them I didn't
want to start drawing on my So-
cial Security, yet. I would save it
for my old age.
The first advantage I had
when reaching age 65 was that I
received a free lifetime hunting


Etaoin Shrdlu

and fishing license. That's a pret-
ty good gift, if you have priced
hunting and fishing licenses late-
ly.
This age 65 is beginning to
become a mysterious thing.
I get all kinds of perks, such
as discounts on motel rooms, ad-
missions, conveyance transporta-
tion, some restaurants, etc.
I'm even eligible to join the
Senior Citizens!
THERE IS A PRICE one has
to pay for all this largesse. all
these benefits and discounts. All
this attention from the federal
government.
The other day I was calling on


Ralph Walton, down at the Paper
Company, and Ralph remarked,
"Saturday is the first day of hunt-
ing season. Are you going?"
He caught me by surprise. "I
hadn't thought about it!" I said,
never having realized before that
it was indeed the first day of
squirrel season. !
'You know this wouldn't have
happened a few years ago. You
would have been making plans to
be there bright and early on the
first day. You must be getting
oldI" Ralph remarked.
You know, he's right-except
for the "getting old" part. A few
years ago, I thought if I wasn't
there for opening day, they just


changed the opening day to an-
other.. I was always in the woods
on the first day of squirrel sea-
son!
Now, I feed them rather than
shoot them. I could probably get
the limit in my back yard. All I
would have to do is go out beside
the squirrel feeder, bang a tin can
on the side of the feeder, and
move back before the squirrels
ran over me. I have about eight or
nine regulars who eat breakfast
at my feeder every morning. They
bring their kids, too.
I have fed those back yard
squirrels for so long, now, I hon-
estly don't believe I could bring
myself to shoot one. I know I
could not shoot one of those in
my back yard. And that's part of
advancing in' age, tool
ABOUT 10 YEARS ago, it
wasn't a hunting season If I
wasn't in the woods before day
even thought of starting to break
on the first day of the season.
But, as the years have


slipped by, all my old hunting
buddies have somehow become
too old to get out of a warm bed
on these cold, crisp mornings. It's
no longer fun to run up the river
in a boat before daylight, with the
water spray freezing on, the side
of the boat. The thrill is all but
gone out of trying to cook break-
fast over a gas stove in the dead
of night of stuffing one hand
at a time in your pocket to keep.
at least one finger limber enough
to shoot with .. of having your
ears and toes freeze.
I was having fun, then. I was
even having fun the time I got lost
on the Big River and wandered
around for about three hours be-
fore I came to the river bank. I
even lost my zest for shooting
squirrels on that trip.
I never hunted deer, so I
didn't have that to get over. I
know plenty of other old geezers
like me who are still hunting
deer, so I suppose I would be
right there with them, if I had
ever acquired the deer hunting fe-


ver.
MAYBE, THAT'S WHY I still
like to dove hunt. Dove hunting is
a mature man's sport. You don't
have to tramp the woods, get up
before the moon goes down, or
slosh through the mud.
With dove hunting, you can
wait until the early morning chill
gets off the air and the day
, warms up about noon. No sitting
in a tree stand, freezing, and mo-
tionless for ,hours while waiting
for action.
With dove hunting, you can
get comfortable on your bucket
full of shells, snacks and a Pepsi
or two. One can have the best of
two worlds in a dove field. All the
comforts of home, and the. game
come to youl
Getting on into age doesn't
make one too old to do these
things you formerly enjoyed; it
just gives one the impetus to
choose something a little more in
keeping with your recently ac-
quired sedentary habits.

Shad

Phantyy
By
Wendell Campbell


A Real American
There's probably nary-a-one of you reading this article who has
ever heard of the man this article is written about. He was a com-
mon man, but one who achieved greatness in so many ways it is
impossible for me not to recognize his achievements.
He was no Sam Walton or Donald Trump, mind you, but he left
a legacy with those of us who knew and loved him that will never be
forgotten.,
Fonso L. Tanton died one year ago, November 12, 1991, one
day short of his 67th birthday. He had been married to Melba 0.
Tanton for well over half that time. They were married shortly after
he was employed by Gulf Power Company. He retired from Gulf
Power on March 1, 1987 after 40 years of distinguished service.
Those two accomplishments were enough to put,him in the top
10% of successful people in the world, in my opinion. But Fonso
Tanton was much more.
"Fonso," as he was known by close friends and family, was a
'Jack-of-all-trades" man. There wasn't anything he couldn't build,
repair or jump-start, except the most intricate of devices.
As I write this article, my typewriter sits on a table he built
from scrap lumber and it's as nice a table as I have ever seen in any
furniture store. As a matter of fact, it is better built and better look-
ing than many I've seen, even in the most expensive stores.
The roof over my head, the floor my chair sits on, the walls sur-
rounding me and most of the handiwork herein are all products of
Fonso Tanton. He, of course, had help from his wife and some fami-
ly members. But, make no mistake about it, it was Fonso who ini-
tiated and completed the task, whatever it was.
Trophies of his life surround me. There are several large-mouth
bass, perfectly displayed, that decorate the walls in the den that
were caught in the river that runs silently behind this remarkable
structure. There is a plaque that bears an inscription of apprepia-
tion for his many years of service to Gulf Power Company. There Is
a chimney with a wooden mantle over it that was built and hand-
crafted by Fonso that defies apprenticeship in masonry and carpen-
try. And there are many other works that not many professionals
could have surpassed in workmanship.
I know of no on'e who could hunt or fish better than Fonso. The
few tines I fished with him almost embarrassed me. He would be
catching fish all around the boat while I would catch nothing, al-
though I was using the same bait and fishing in the same area as
he. The only time I went hunting with him humbled me so that I
never went with him again; .
But Fonso's forte was with people; the people- he lived and
worked with. There was ,no one more helpful to his family and
friends than Fonso. The people he worked with, his neighbors and
friends all respected and loved him. Quiet and unassuming, he
went about his business, doing what needed arid had to be done
and more,
Fonso L. Tanton was an honest, hard working, giving, family-
loving, God-fearing man. When in the throes of death from the can-
cer that finally took his life, he never complained. And when a ,
preacher visited him, just before he died, and asked him about his
preparedness to meet God, he replied, "I'm ready, my friend. I'm
ready."
And there is no doubt in my mind or anyone who knew him
that he was.
Everyone should have the honor of knowing a Fonso L. Tanton,
and maybe scme of you do. I feel privileged to have been a small
part of his 11if for almost 40 years. He was, in my opinion, a great
man: A great Anericanl No man is made of sterner stuff.
Fonso L. Tantpn was my brother-in-law.

throughout the Panhandle for his
coaching ability and was adored
by his charges for his display of
"tough love" which he unselfishly
lavished upon them.
He was married to the former
Dorothy Pickelselmer, who pre-
ceeded him in death. They had

one son, Bob, who lives in Bristol;
Tennessee. He was 71 years of
age when he died.

aptitude for tax work, experience
In filing personal returns, and
good communications skills are
urged to sign up.
Volunteer Counselors ,are
trained by AARP in cooperation
with the Internal Revenue Service
(IRS).
The Tax-Aide Program reim-
burses volunteers for their pro-
gram related out-of-pocket ex-
penses including such costs as
mileage, parking, meals, postage
and basic supplies.
To volunteer for the Tax-Aide
program and become a trained
Counselor, please contact either
Leslie L. Toth at 227-1460 or Ela
Sutton at 229-6102.
Classes will be held in Port

CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM

Current Trends

and Future

Possibilities...
By
Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.
Medical innovations that are becoming more common are brain
fluid shunts, heart transplants, heart and lung transplants, and in-
testinal transplants.
For a number of years neurosurgeons have been able to by-
pass an obstruction in the flow of fluid in the brain cavities by run-
ning a tube from the brain cavity down the neck and chest walls
into the abdominal cavity where the fluid can be absorbed. Previ-
ously, the fluid accumulated and caused the retarded child with a
huge head hydrocephalus or water head.
Children born now with certain heart defects are candidates for
heart transplants in a few centers in the United States. It is neces-
sary to be at one of these centers and there must be a suitable
heart available. These babies would not survive without the trans-
plant and with a transplant are really doing quite well.
One source of such hearts are babies who are born without
brains. These anecephalic (without a head) babies could be a
source for many heart transplants. For parents who wish to .make
this contribution it should be possible for them to do so.
Children with cystic fibrosis often need heart-lung transplants.
Their lung disease is usually so severe that a concurrent heart dis-
ease develops. Sometimes the block transplant of the heart and
lung is an.easier surgical procedure than just the heart transplant.,
Intestinal transplants are just beginning to work and become
possible. There are many situations that would require intestinal
transplants. The ideal situation is in a normal child who has a twist
develop in the intestine and the intestine dies. In such situations it
means saving the life of a normal child who has had an unfortunate
accident.
We can expect to read more about and see more results from
- intestinal transplantation in years to come.

From the
Principal's Desk

Wewahitchka

High School
By Larry A. Mathes

Everyone is eyeing the approaching Thanksgiving Holiday for
different reasons. Students will give thanks for being out ofschool
for a couple of days. Teachers probably are grateful for the same
reason. Coach Flowers is probably thankful to have this football
season finished, so he can begin working towards next year without
the pressure of a Friday night game. .Hunters are thankful for the'
hunting season. Those who are employed are thankful they still are
and so on. The point is almost everyone can find some reason to
.-give thanks. Some of the news on television shows you things could
be much worse.
The Wednesday before Thanksgiving usually means an early re-
lease from classes buses are scheduled to arrive at Wewahitchka
High School at 12:30, or possibly a few minutes earlier. No lunch
will be served that day no doubt so that students can build up a
good appetite for Thursday.
Note to parents one student was observed balling up her re-
port card and throwing it on the floor (we retrieved it and mailed it
home with a note). Then another was observed changing notes on
his card (we alerted the parent to look for the changes). I just men-
tion these two to alert parents that students have a way of "losing"
or "working" those report cards of which they are not too proudly
Congratulations to Cmdr. McLeod, Gunnery Sgt. Howze, and

He is survived by one son,

Cross Country Ends

Season Last Saturday


Last Saturday, Port St. Joe
High School served as, host of the
Class AA District I Cross Country
Meet. The meet was held at St.
Joseph Bay Country Club with
ideal conditions for a cross coun-
try meet.
In the team competition, Pen-
sacola Catholic placed first with a
team score of 26 points. Quincy-
Shanks placed second with 54
points, Marianna placed third
with 65 points, and Port SLt. Joe
placed fourth with 72 points. Pen-,
sacola Catholic and Quincy-
Shanks both qualified for this
weekend's state cross country
meet as a result of their top two
finish.
In the individual competition,
Wade Berosett of Pensacola Cath-
olic placed first with a time of
15:53. Greg Pack, also of Pensa-
cola Catholic, came in second
with a time of 16:40, Jeremy Ed-
wards was third with 16:54, Mi-
chael Gilmore came in fourth at
16:55, and Alvin Issac of Quincy-
Shanks was fifth with a time of
17:01. Each of the runners auto-


matically qualified for the state
meet as a result of their top five
finish.
Port St. Joe had seven run-
ners participate in the meet. Ken-
ny Daves placed ninth 17:16;
Zyris. Hill placed 11th 17:32;
Shannon Gant came in 15th -
17:40; Lee Duren placed 18th -
17:58; Steve Ailes came in 19th -
18:18; Andy Smith placed 25th -
19:24; and Adam Taylor came in
26th with a time of 20:14.
"Our goal for the season was
to qualify for the state meet. We
fell short of our goal. Zyris, Shan-
non, and Andy all recorded their
personal best but it was not
enough to overcome the strong
showing of Pensacola Catholic
and the depth of both Quincy-
Shanks and .Marianna," com-
mented Coach Scott Gowan.
Even though the Sharks
failed to qualify for the state meet
they still enjoyed their finest sea-
son ever. They fielded a team of
11 runners which is the largest

AROUND


The full arch bridge is one
of the more challenging esthetic
procedures in dentistry. All of
the teeth in one jaw are joined
into a fixed bridge. It is generally
suggested when the remaining
teeth are weak and the best
hope for maintaining them (and
the replacements for the miss-
ing teeth) is to encompass them
into one solid unit. "United we
stand. Divided we fall."
Like most fixed bridges, the
materials used are porcelain
fused to metal. The teeth must
be prepared parallel to one an-
other so that the fit is passive
and true. This is particularly im-


portant with porcelain fused to
metal, because if the bridge
does not fit smoothly, pressure
from within the crowns could
cause the porcelain to fracture.
A full arch can be done in
sections, with the individual
bridges interlocked. With today's
technology this device will give
as good support as when the
bridge is one solid unit.

vice to promote better dental
health. From the office of:

Coming off a disastrous 1-9
season last year and beginning
the present season with three
straight losses, hardly anybody
thought the Sharks would sud-
denly find themselves right in the
thick of the Class AA football
playoffs. But, with a 28-14 win
over Jefferson County last Friday
night, the team finds itself on top
of the Class AA District 2 heap
and no challengers remaining.
The Sharks put together an
unbroken string of victories for
their last five games to turn the
tide from a loser to a winner.
Friday night was no different,
except the team put an emphasis
on running the ball right at Jef-
ferson. Quarterback Jason Max-
well, who normally throws an av-
erage of 15 passes per game,
went to the air only seven times
Friday night and connected on
three of those attempts for 44
yards.
Using Kevin [Bull] Lee, Sandy
Quinn, Antwoine Allen and keep-
ing the ball himself, Maxwell
mixed up his offense effectively
and controlled the ball for most of
the game.
Sandy Quinn intercepted
three Jefferson passes during the
game, stopping Tiger drives and
on one occasion picked off a Jef-
ferson pass in the end zone, ear-
marked for a Tiger score. Bryan
Butts helped keep the Tiger pass-
ing game in check with one inter-
ception and Jason Hathaway lid
his part with a constant rush of
the passer, one solo sack and
several assists.
The Sharks showed the tone
of their game for the night, when
Butts intercepted Tiger quarter-
back Willie Youman on the third
play of the football game, putting
the Sharks in business on. the Ti-
ger 44. Using a conservative of-
fense, the "four horsemen" of Lee,
Quinn, Allen and Maxwell, gulped
yards by bits and pieces until Al-
len squirmed through the middle
on a 5-yard scoring play to put
the Sharks up, 6-0. The extra
point kick was wide.
Late in the first period, Quinn
intercepted his first pass of the

squad the Sharks have ever had.
They had five runners run in the
17's for the first time, and estab-
lished a new school record with, a
team time of 88:12.
He continued by saying,
"Each season, we seem to be a lit-
tle better than we were the year
before. We have made significant
progress in the program over the
last five years. Next year could be
the year that we emerge as one of
the state's top 2A cross country
teams. We return 11 runners,
and five of these runners will be
seniors. How good we are will be
determined by how hard we work
for the next 365 days. Pensacola
Catholic showed what hard work
and dedication will do. Last sea-
son, they finished fourth in the
district. This season they are dis-
trict champions."
Middle School XC Team De-
feats Marianna
Last Friday, four members
the Port St. Joe cross country
team competed in a Middle
School Cross Country Meet
against Marianna. Nine runners
took part in the meet.
Eight graders Nick Sweazy
(19:22) and Lance Hanson (20:32)
finished first and second respec-
tively, and seventh grader Chad
Thompson placed fourth with a
time of 21:17.
Port St. Joe defeated Marian-
na by a score of 7 to 14. Nick and
Chad established new class
records.

evening at the, Tiger 40 yard line
and came roaring back to the 19
yard line before he was brought
down. The first play of the second
quarter, Maxwell scored on a 2-
yard keeper play. This time, Da-
vid Liffick was called on to run
the extra point and the Sharks
were ahead by a 14-0 score.
The Sharks were put in the
driver's seat once again, when a
jarring hit by Tappan Gandy on
the 42 yard line made Sam Fran-
cis cough up the football and a
host of Sharks scrambled to cover
the ball. Five plays later, after one
of Maxwell's few passes, covered
27 yards to Arlon Nickson, Sandy
Quinn scooted the final seven
yards to score for the third time
in the first half, putting the
Sharks ahead, 21-0 after Eric
Monteiro kicked the extra point.
With the half winding down
and the Sharks relaxing a bit,
Youman hit Travis Maxwell on an
eight yard scoring strike in the
end zone with a minute left in the
first half. The Tigers tried for two
extra points, but the run failed to
cross the goal line, leaving the
score at 21-6, at half time.
With sixteen seconds left on
the clock in the third quarter,
the Sharks put their final points
on the board,, on a 12-yard gal-
lop by Quinn, with Monteiro kick-

ing the extra point, to give the
Sharks 28 points for their night's
work.
Jefferson scored twice in the
final two minutes of the .game, to
make the score look better than it
actually was. With 1:55 remain-
ing, Quinn plucked a pass from a
Jefferson player in the end zone,
and slipped down circling to bring
the ball back up-field, giving Jef-
ferson a safety.
Then with :58 left in the
game, a hail mary pass to Darius
Watkins from Youman, put the
Tigers on the Shark six. The next
play Herbert Maxwell faked a run
and instead, tossed to Youman In

New Fishing Rules Go Into Effect Nov. 26 and Jan. 1


The Governor and Cabinet
approved the following Marine
Fisheries Commission rule propo-
sals on November 4:
FISHING GEAR
This rule is intended to regu-
late the use of fishing gear state-
wide by:
*requiring hook and line gear
to be continually tended
*prohibiting soaking a net for
more than one hour, beginning
when the first mesh is placed in
the water and ending either when
the first mesh is retrieved back
aboard the vessel or on shore or
the gathering or pursing of the
net is begun to facilitate retrieval
back aboard the vessel, whichev-
er occurs sooner; once either the
first mesh is retrieved back
aboard the vessel or on shore or
the gathering or pursing is be-
gun, the netting operation shall
be continuous until the net is
completely removed from the wa-
ter
*setting a maximum mesh
size for seines at 2 inches
stretched mesh, excluding the
wings
*setting a minimum mesh
size for gill and trammel nets at 3
inches stretched mesh, beginning
January 1, 1995
*setting a maximum length of
600 yards for all gill and trammel
nets and seines
*allowing only a single net to
be fished by any vessel or individ-
ual at any time
*allowing no more than two
nets to be in possession on a ves-
sel, and require that the two nets
have stretched mesh sizes that
differ by at least 1/4 inch or
depths that differ by at least 25
meshes
*prohibiting the use of power-
heads in state waters except for
personal protection; the posses-
sion of fish which have been har-
vested with explosive devices on
any vessel fishing or at rest in
state waters will be deemed prima



"OLL IN










.By: Richard Miller
*On slippery or icy roads, ap-
proach a hill-while keeping well
behind the lead vehicle so you
won't have to stop on the way
up. Coming down, reduce
speed to a minimum. Put the
car in the lowest gear and
pump brakes gently to control
the descent.
*As newer, reformulated fuels
become available, cars with
carburetors may tend to hesi-
tate or install, but those 'with
fuel injection won't be affected
as much. In fact, they may ben-
efit if the new gasoline contains
enough detergents to keep the
fuel injector clean.
*Driving courses for senior citi-
zens recommend choosing a
car with an instrument panel
that's easy to read. Why? Be-
cause it takes a 52-year-old
driver a full second longer than
a 20-year-old to change focus
from the. instrument panel to
the road.
*Protect your car. Every time
you leave it, remember to lock
the doors. Stow packages and
luggage in the trunk. Park in a
well-lighted, well-traveled area
and point wheels to curb.
*New-Used Cars: Protect your
pocketbook. Shop for your new

been harvested in state waters.
*prohibiting the use of spot-
ter airplanes to assist the harvest
of any species other than Spanish
mackerel during the unlimited
harvest segment and species al-
lowed to be harvested by purse
seines
*requiring all persons using
gill and trammel nets, and seines
exceeding either 100 feet in
length, 4 feet in depth, or 3/8
inch mesh size to obtain a saltwa-
ter products license
*prohibiting the use of long-
line gear.
In addition, numerous local
laws and special acts regarding
the use of fishing gear in Florida
have been repealed, modified, or
readopted. These rules will take
effect January 1, 1993. The
Commission is also now in the
process of developing additional
regional fishing gear regulations
to supplement the statewide rule.
SPANISH MACKEREL
This rule will Increase the
recreational bag limit from five to
10 Spanish mackerel per person
daily in state waters and in adja-
cent federal water effective Janu-
ary 1, 1993. The rule will also
change the management of the
commercial quota on the state's
east coast by:
*setting a daily commercial
vessel limit of 1,500 pounds from
April 1 through November 30
each year
*allowing unlimited commer-
cial harvest beginning December
1 on Mondays, Wednesdays, and.
Friday and setting daily com-
mercial vessel limits of 1,500
pounds on Tuesdays and Thurs-
days and 500 pounds on Satur-
days and Sundays until 80 per-
cent of the federal quota is
reached
*setting a daily commercial
limit of 1,000 pounds until the re-
mainder of the federal quota is
reached and then setting a 500
pounds daily commercial vessel
limit through March 31.
The commercial provisions of
the rule described above will take
effect November 26, 1992.
TARPON
This rule will set the number
of tarpon tags allowed to be sold
in 1993 at the same level as this
year 2,500 (with 1,250 re-
served for fishing guides). This
rule will take effect November
26, 1992.
SPECIAL ACTIVITY LICENS-
ES
This rule establishes Special
Activity Licenses to be issued tu-


Turkey Shoot
The Highland View Volunteer
Fire Department is sponsoring a
turkey shoot every Saturday and
Sunday through December 20th
from 1:00 to 6:00 p.m. at the
junction of Butler Road and High-
way 98 in Highland View. Every-
one is welcome to participate.


persons using non-conforming
fishing gear to allow for gear in-
novation, provide for public
health, safety, and welfare, and
for scientific research purposes.
This rule will take effect Novem-
ber 26, 1992.
The Commission will hold a
public meeting December 8-11 at
the Sheraton Key Largo in Key
Largo. The meeting will include
the following:
Final public hearing on
East Central Coast gear.
Bluefish final public hear-


ing (if requested). This rule
would manage the bluefish fish-
ery in Florida by establishing a
10 fish daily bag limit for recrea-
tional fishermen, increasing the
minimum size limit from 10 inch-
es to 12 inches fork length, re-
quiring all commercial harvesters
to adhere to the statewide gear
rule while fishing in state and At-
lantic federal waters, designating
bluefish as a restricted species,
and setting a 5,000 pound daily
commercial vessel limit for blue-
fish on the state's entire east


Attention All Hunters:

Deer and Turkey Season

Opens Thursday, Nov. 26


Pull down your shooting iron
and gas up the truck; it's time for
deer and turkey hunting seasons
to start.
An important regulation
change this year in the south and
central zones for fall turkey hunt-
ers is that only bearded turkeys
or gobblers may be taken. This
change was implemented in the
northwest zone last year.
In the southern tip of the
state, deer hunting season began
on October 31 and continues
through January 10. Fall turkey
season in that zone runs Novem-
ber 14 to January 10.
Deer and turkey hunting be-
gins in the central zone on No-
vember 14. Turkey hunting ends
on January 10, but deer hunting
in that zone continues to January
24.
In the northwest zone, deer


Disabled Vets

Get Increase
The Department of Veterans
Affairs (VA) has announced that
compensation payments for disa-
bled veterans will be increased by
three percent, effective December
1.
The cost-of-living allowance *
was included in legislation signed
by President Bush October 24.
The increase will be reflected in
veterans' January 1993 checks.
Affected are some two million
veterans whose monthly pay-
ments will range from $85 for a
single veteran with a 10-percent
disability rating to $1,730 for a
single veteran with a 100-percent
disability rating.
Also affected are some
312,000 survivors of service
members or veterans 'who died
from service-connected causes.
Veterans whose service-
connected disabilities are rated at
30 percent or more may receive
additional allowances for depen-
dents, based on the number of
dependents and the extent of the
disability.


More Rockets to be


Launched from Cape


The Technological Research
and Development Authority
(TRDA), in cooperation with the
Spaceport Florida Authority, will
fund up to five spaceflight experi-
ments in 1993 for students and
teachers from Florida public
schools and universities. The ex-
periments will be launched as
payloads aboard Microstar subor-
bital rockets from the Spaceport
Authority's Cape San Bias launch
site in Port St. Joe.
"The 1993 Florida Suborbital
Rocket Program will encourage
middle- and high-school students
to work with university research-
ers on space experiments," said
Frank Kinney, executive director
of TRDA. "Combining the creativi-
ty of our public school students
with the expertise of Florida's
university faculty should generate
some unique experiment propo-
sals."
TRDA will fund the program
with up to $250,000, or $50,000
for each mission. The Spaceport
Florida Authority will provide the
rockets, experiment integration,


and launch services. Guidelines
for the program proposals will
soon be mailed to eligible Florida
universities.
The TRDA was established in
1987 by the Florida Legislature to
promote high-technology educa-
tion and scientific research in the
areas of space and the environ-
ment. TRDA funding is provided
through sales of Challenger li-
cense plates, and by the Florida
Department of Education.
The Spaceport authority is a
public corporation established by
the state in 1989 to facilitate the
development of Florida's space
enterprise, Including industry, re-
search, and education.

Reward Offered
Under Florida law, consu-
mers who examine their medical
bills and discover improper
charges are eligible to receive a
reward. Call the Florida Depart-
ment of Insurance toll-free at 1-
800-342-2762 for details.


and turkey hunts open November
26-29, then it reopens December
12. Turkey hunting ends January
17, but deer hunting continues to
February 17 for gun hunters and
from February 18-28 for archery
and muzzleloading gun hunters.
Page 16 of the Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission's
hunting handbook includes a
map that illustrates the boundar-
'ies of the three zones.
Bag limits are: deer, two per
day and four in possession; tur-
key, one per day and two in pos-
' session. There is no season limit
on deer, but the season limit on
,turkeys is two.
The tiny Key deer on the Flor-
ida Keys are an endangered spe-
cies and may not be hunted at
all.


coast adjacent to and within fed-
eral waters.
Spanish Mackerel final
public hearing (if requested).
This rule would remove the prohi-
bition on the use of nets in this
fishery on weekends on the
state's west coast.
Spotted Seatrout The Com-
mission will receive public com-
ment and consider various man-
agement options and develop
policy intended to raise the
spawning potential ratio in the
seatrout fishery from 20 to 35
percent to increase abundance
and prevent recruitment overfish-
ing.
Reef Fish The Commission
will receive public comment and
decide whether to further regu-
late various reef fishes. Proposals
under consideration include:
*establishing a minimum size
limit of 12 inches for schoolmas-
ter and gray (mangrove) snapper,
and include gray (mangrove)
snapper in the aggregate recrea-
tional bag limit for snapper (in-
stead of the current 5 per day)
*including vermillion snapper


in the aggregate recreational bag
limit for snapper (10 per day for
various species harvested)
*establishing a minimum size
limit of 20 inches for mutton
snapper, and a daily recreational
bag limit of 2 for recreational fish-
ermen
*establishing a minimum size
limit of 12 inches for red porgy
*prohibiting the use of sea
bass traps in all state waters
*requiring all reef fish species
to be landed with heads and tails
intact
*regulating the triggerfish
and hog snapper fisheries.
Other Meeting Action The
Commission will receive public
comment and develop policy on
the management of the blue crab
fishery, the use of purse seines in
the southwest region (particularly
the Tampa Bay area), species al-
lowed to be harvested by purse
seines statewide, and a perma-
nent rule to redefine the boun-
dary between the Big Bend and
Northwest Regions established in
the shrimp rule in order to regu-
late food shrimp production gear.

You Could Pay More Money For

Cataract Surgery Performed After

JANUARY 1, 1993

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


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 resulting in 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.

Recycling Program Working In City of Port St. Joe


Frank Healy, Port St. Joe's
public works superintendent,
said that "With the use of all tools
available now to the City of Port
St. Joe, recycling, use of recycled
*products and being more careful
:of items thrown away, residents
of the City can remove as much
as 80% of the volume from the
current solid waste and garbage
stream."
Healy made his statement
Thursday, speaking to the Rotary


Club at their regular noon meet-
ing.
Healy said Port St. Joe is
"getting great response" to its ef-
forts to recycle since the practice
became mandatory the first of the
month. The superintendent said
citizens were already separating
about 35% of the recyclables be-
fore it became mandatory, or be-
.fore the City furnished equipment
and a plan of how to handle the
waste material.
"People seem to have accept-
ed the plan real well, because we
have yet to receive the first com-
plaint on the new system. People
came to pick up their large con-
tainers at the Centennial Building
late last month in droves. We're
real pleased with how it is turn-
ing out," Healy said.
Port St. Joe was producing
40 tons of garbage per week be-
fore the recycling program really
got started. "It Was costing. us


$1080 per week for incineration
of this material. The tonnage sent
to the incinerator has been cur-
tailed by a large amount, but we
really won't know the actual fig-
ures until the end of the month,
when we add up everything," Hea-
ly said.
Every ton recycled saves the
City of Port St. Joe $28.00-the
cost of burning or tipping fees for
the landfill. Healy said the recy-
cling program is removing card-
board, aluminum cans, baled
newspapers, glass, tin cans, plas-
tics [milk bottles and soft drink
bottles] from the solid waste
stream.
"We're selling cardboard and
newspapers to the Paper Compa-
ny, cans, and glass to a scrap
dealer and a firm is going in at
Brandon next month which will
take all our plastics, if we bale it
up," Healy said. 'This amounts to

"Good-bye, Mr. Craig"'
Friday, November 13, we said
goodbye to a longtime friend to
the people of Gulf County. For-
mer Superintendent and coach,
Marion Craig passed away on Fri-
day. Coach Craig, as he was fond-
b ly known, was a very versatile
man. I remember once, years ago,
he came to my classroom when
we were singing the "Hokey Po-
key." He joined in with' the four-
year-olds, but after about the
30th verse, he took off his jacket
but kept on going. He wasn't
afraid to laugh with children or
cry with his team. He had a big
heart. The people in Gulf County
were privileged to have known
him. Craig Coliseum is a lasting
memorial to this friend. Good-
bye, Mr. Craig.
Kids Say the Darndest Things...
First grade' teacher, Tweeta
Gaskin, asked her class if anyone
knew what 'veterans' were. A
child didn't hesitate' to say, 'They
take care of sick dogs and stuff."
Kindergarten student, Sarah
Lawrence, told her mother, Linda
Lawrence, that she had made a
'pee pee' in school. Puzzled, Linda
'-soon-found out that they had'
been 'studying Indians, and that
Sarah had made a teepee!
When a student offered me a
piece of cake, I said that I was on
a diet and I would take it home to
my husband. One child, never
looking up from her work, said, "I
think Miss Linda is watching her
carbohydrate intake."
Gatorbackers Will Feed Varsity
Football Team on Thursday
Members of the Gatorbackers
will feed the varsity football
players with a steak supper on
Thursday night. Menu will in-
clude: steak, baked potato, baked
beans, bread, tea, and dessert.
We're proud of our Gators. Also
invited were cheerleaders, spon-
sors, coaches, and principal, Mr.
Mathes.
Student of the Week
Andrea Marquez, daughter of
Patricia and Tim Whitfield, is the
fourth grade pick of Mrs. Esther
Taunton. Her favorite subject in
school is spelling, although she
does well in them all. When she
grows up, she would like to be a
doctor. Her favorite song is Color
Me Bad. She admires all the TV
stars. If she could go anywhere,
she would like to visit the 'Big Ap-
ple' New York. At school she likes
to play with friends Stefanie
McDaniel and Kristin Jones. An-
drea says this about herself, "I
like myself. I think I am all right
and I've got a bunch of friends.
School is great!" She was in my


room last year and I'll vouch for
her she's great too.
Bigger and Bigger Each Year
It started out with a video
Veterans' Day program, then
went to our school yard, and then
this year, the Veterans' Day Pro-
gram was moved to the football
field at WHS. The rain cooperated
with us, stopping 30 minutes be-
fore the program was due to be-
gin. The bleachers were full of
students, visitors, and in a place
of honor, sat the veterans. The
program went like this: Gator
Sound Band playing the National
Anthem as the ROTC Color
Guard presented the American
flag.' The third grade chorus sang
various patriotic songs all
through the show. Mr. Stryker
and his band played a patriotic
medley. Then Mrs. Micah Peak's
group performed, followed by
Mrs. Misty Harper's Gator Dazz-
lers. Our guest speaker was Msgt.
SIdney E., Duffer from Tyndall
AFB.; He-spoke to us last year arfa,
we appreciated his return. Chil-
dren recited the famous poem, "In
Flanders Field" and a lone trum-
peter played Taps in memory of
those who gave the ultimate sac-
rifice. A field of white crosses had
been planted on the field. Vete-
rans were recognized and given
an American flag pin and treated
to refreshments. Mr. Kelley:gave
some brief remarks about what a
great day this was. Our thanks to
all who came.

Mrs. Doris Jean Whitten's
classroom is making cookbooks.
They have tried each recipe to see
how it works. We may have some
budding Justin Wilsons or Julia

a major percentage of our solid
waste and we're selling it rather
than paying to have it burned,
which defrays a portion of our
solid waste handling cost," he
told the Club.
Healy called attention to the
problem New York had in getting
rid of a barge load of garbage last
year. 'They had to finally bring it
back to New York and recycle the
entire load, so they are now seri-
ous about recycling." The speaker
said landfills in this part of the
country are becoming too costly.
You must line the pit with a wa-
terproof liner, keep it pumped out
with the water being transferred
to a waste water treatment plant,,
monitor any ground or under-
ground water which gets near the
fill site for up to 40 years, after a
site is closed. A substantial
amount of cash has to be deposit-
ed in escrow to take care of any
problems which might occur from
the landfill during the monitoring
period.
Healy said, "We are lucky. We
still have time to study any move

Nutrition Campaign Launched On Fox Television


Florida Agriculture Commis-
sioner Bob Crawford is encourag-
ing children and parents alike to
tune in for a nutritional cam-
paign that blends upbeat rap mu-:
sic into rhythmic food messages.
The nutritional campaign, de-
veloped by the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Consu-
mer Services, was launched
earlier this month on Fox net-
work television stations in North


Florida and the Panhandle.
Children and parents have an
opportunity to get a taste of the
Department's "FRESH-2-U" kids
rap group on weekday afternoons
during the network's "Kids' Club"
programming, and on Saturday
mornings during peak cartoon
hours.
The FRESH-2-U group, com-
posed of grade-school-age young-
sters, performs lively, animated

music videos. The energetic group
is featured in 10- and 30-second
television spots that will be aired
over a two-month span in North
Florida and Panhandle television
markets.
"We have high hopes that our
new approach to nutritional edu-
cation will help children exchange
their junk food for fresh fruits
and vegetables," Crawford said.
"All children and parents should
tune in for the food messages, be-
cause nutritional education is
critical to our future."
Poor eating habits can open
the proverbial Pandora's Box.
Failure to eat a balanced diet can
seriously threaten mental and
physical fitness by introducing
disease, slow motor skills devel-
opment, and cause a host of oth-
er health hazards.
In addition to the music vide-
os, the Department will make
available to youngsters a free
FRESH-2-U kit that features full-
color collectable trading cards
and posters of the kid stars. The
kit also includes coloring sheets
of the FRESH-2-U group and a
child's recipe book.
FRESH-2-U kits can be ob-
tained by calling the Florida De-
partment of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services at (904) 488-
7000.
"If children bite into our new
food messages, FRESH-2-U will


totally reshape nutritional educa-,
tion and emerge as an education
model for children in the 21st
century," Crawford said.
Crawford said that the suc-
cess of the campaign depends on
its appearance to children.
"The FRESH-2-U concept was.
designed to have a certain allure
that reaches out to kids and
hammers home the point that,
'eating can be fun and nutrition-'
al," Crawford said.
Instead of adopting conven-
tional instructional techniques
that may turn off thousands of
children, the campaign is de-
signed to turn on youngsters in
unprecedented fashion with up-
beat, rhythmic rap music that
sends a clear-cut nutritional mes-
sage.
'We think children will learn
about sound nutrition and food
safety without feeling like adults
are force-feeding them informa-
tion," Crawford said.
The FRESH-2-U package cov-
ers a bonanza of food safety and
nutritional tips that jump to the
tunes of rap titles like: '"We're
Fresh to You"; "Don't Spoil Your
Fun"; "Snooze You Lose"; "Future
Jocks"; "Scrub It Up"; "Snack At-
tack"; "When In Doubt"; "Do You
Know."
Crawford said FRESH-2-U
has arrived at a critical time for
youngsters. He said the promo-
tional campaign is aimed particu-"


National Family Week

Is November 22-28


The Gulf County Guidance
Clinic, Inc. and the Kids Instruc-

join with Family Service America
and its network of 280 Family
Service agencies in the United
States to celebrate National Fami-
ly Week, proclaimed by President
Bush for November 22-28.
The theme, Family Works!, fo-
cuses attention on families and
their contribution to society. It
places value on today's diverse
families, affirms their resilience
despite the family's changing
composition, and it supports the

Wish Upon A Star
HRS will again host the Wish
Upon A Star Program at Christ-
mas this year. Applications are
available at the HRS offices to
sign up a child, disabled adult or
senior citizen for consideration
for this program. The information
given will be printed on cards
that will be placed on a Christ-
mas tree in a local store. People
from the community will have an
opportunity to pick a card, pur-
chase a gift (gift suggestions,
wishes and needs will be printed
on the cards) and return it to the
HRS offices.
HRS offices are located at
201 Monument Avenue in Port
St Joe and in the Old Court-
house in Wewahitchka.
Deadline for accepting appli-
cations is December 4.

Card of Thanks
I wish I could thank each of
you personally for the many kind
and thoughtful things you did for
me during my recent hospital
stay. The many calls, cards, flow- -
ers, and prayers have really
helped me to get back home.
Please accept my sincere appreci-
ation for thinking of me.

strength and vitality of modern
day families.
American families continue to
undergo change and are becom-
ing increasingly diverse. No one
type of family can now be said to
be typical. The traditional nuclear
family of a husband, wife, and
one or more minor children
makes up one in four U.S. house-
holds and is losing ground to
childless couples, single-parent
families, serial and stepfamilies,
unmarried couples, and people
living alone.
Family Week observances
across the country will draw at-
tention to the importance of fami-
lies and the need to support and
strengthen families. The Guid-
ance Clinic and K.I.D.S. offer
family therapy services, parent
education programs, child care
and quality preschool programs
with family involvement activities.
For further information on Guid-
ance Clinic or K.I.D.S.' programs
during National Family Week,
and throughout the year, call
(904) 227-1145 or 227-7440.



WPS Looking

for Volunteers

Widowed Persons Service re-
cently held a continuing training
session for their volunteers. The
session held by coordinator Jean
Mallory was entitled "Grief and
the Holidays" and touched on
many of the difficult problems en-
countered by widowed people
during the upcoming season.
Widowed Persons Service is a
non-profit service organization of
people who have been widowed,
who serve as one on one contacts
to the newly widowed. The volun-
teers participate in an original 15
hours of training with periodic
ongoing training. Applications are
now being accepted for volunteers
who have been widowed for more
than one year, who would like to
be part of this caring group of
men and women. Please call 904-
784-7109. Any newly widowed
person who would like to be con-
tacted is also encouraged to call.
An invitation to all interested
persons is extended to attend the
annual Christmas party to be
held December 19th at 12:00
noon at the Senior Citizen, 1116
Frankford Ave., Panama City.
Speakers are also available
for club meetings by calling 904-
784-7109.


larly at latchkey children and oth-
er youngsters who are apt to form
poor eating habits because they
are fending for themselves in the
kitchen.
"It Is becoming increasingly
common .to pick up a newspaper
or magazine and read of growing
concern about children's physical
fitness'" and nutrition," Crawford
said. "It's not uncommon to hear
a youngster declare that a soda
pop and a candy bar is the per-
fect meal."
But sound nutrition and food
safety aren't the only elements
that FRESH-2-U promotes. The
campaign also champions Flori-
da's $6 billion agricultural indus-
try. Florida farmers put dinner on
America's table by growing more
