"Things have changed since the last
time and we could create some jobs here
in Gulf County by getting back into the
business ourselves. I would like a commit-
tee report in three months." Peters
County-Wide Collection Service
Gulf County may come up
with another plan to collect solid
waste throughout the County, if
the report from a committee
qV named by Chairman Nathan Pe-
ters comes up with a favorable re-
port three months from now.
Peters recommended to the
Board that it make another study
of the County's solid waste collec-
tion program and come to a de-
termination as to whether it
would be best for the County to
get back into the business or con-
tinue to use the contract services
of Argus Services for its collec-
The County got out of the
garbage business a little more
than a year ago, determined to re-
duce expenses to ad valorem tax
payers by shifting the expense of
handling solid waste to the citi-
zens who use it. Solid waste ac-
tivities were costing the County
an estimated $700,000 at the
time of the changeover.
WANTS BACK IN BUSINESS
A survey was made at the
time which recommended the
County contract with a private
enterprise to handle Gulfs solid
waste. Peters said that "things
have changed since that time and
we could create some jobs here in
Gulf County by getting back into
the business, ourselves. I would
like for this committee to report
back after their study and tell us
if they think the County can rea-
sonably get into the collection
business with our own equipment.
and our own labor."
Peters then named former
Commissioners Al Ray and Rudy
Pippin, Wewahitchka Mayor Gene
Hanlon, County officials Don But-
* ler, Larry Wells and Bob Lester
and. George Core to study -the_
matter and made a recommenda-
tion to the County Commission.
Commissioner Billy Traylor,
who was the prime mover in pri-
vatization of the collection ser-
vice, said, "I'll support anything
to make the service better. I will
not support putting the burden
back on the ad valorem tax pay-
All of the other Commission-
ers seemed to take the same atti-
tude as Traylor, with no opposi-
tion to the proposed action being
voiced at Tuesday's meeting.
The new study will consider
the matter of whether or not sub-
scription to collection service will
be mandatory or not, with in-
creased state pressure being ap-
plied for Gulf County to clean up
its act in the matter of handling
solid waste. Presently residents
who live outside the cities of Port
St. Joe and Wywahitchka, have a
choice of whether or not they
wish to subscribe to a collection
service. Collection is mandatory
in the two incorporated cities In-
side the County.
The County consideration of
returning to collection activities
also would more than likely con-
sider some type of trash collec-
tion since the County operates
landfills for this purpose and is
being pressured by the state to
reduce the amount of contribu-
tion to the landfills by some 30%
by next fiscal year.
At any rate, consideration is
being made to take over the col-
lection of solid waste and the
gauntlet has already been thrown
down that nothing short of the
customer bearing the costs in-
volved will be acceptable.
County attorney Bob Moore
advised the Board not to get its
hopes too high, based on infor-
mation furnished by Michael
Hammond that the Department of
Community Affairs would testify
for Gulf County in its Administra-
tive Hearing with 1,000 Friends of
Moore said, "I'd be real happy
if they had offered to be co-
defendants with us but the offer
to be a witness means nothing of
value to our cause."
Moore pointed out that DCA's
legal staff operated completely in-
dependent from the agency and
their input meant little more than
Gulf County's input in swaying
the opinion of the legal depart-
ment which would be conducting
'You had best better not relax
your anxieties about the matter.
Since DCA's legal departtmefntal-~
lowed 1,000 Friends to intervene
with an Administrative Hearing at
this late date could mean bad
things for Gulf County," Moore
said. "Don't get your hopes up too
soon!" he added.

Consultants Report on Recycling Program
Suggests Unified System to Serve County and Two Cities
Gulf County received a report on their recycling efforts and
recommendations of the most effective actions the entire county
could .take to effectively reduce landfill and incinerator usage to
get rid of its solid waste Tuesday. County Administrative Assist-
ant Larry Wells said the report had just arrived Monday and the
staff hadn't studied it as yet. A tentative examination of its con-
tents shows the consulting firm which prepared the report con-
siders the City of Port St. Joe as doing some very effective things
for effective recycling and suggests that the County organize into
one program to provide for more effective results at a lower cost.
The report gives good marks for Port St. Joe's method of col-
lecting household waste and recycling the material. It suggests a
continuation of the program and eventually changing the prac-
tice of grinding up tree limbs and other yard trimmings into a
"Tub Grinder" operation. The County gets no credit for grinding
the material up and selling the chips to St. Joe Forest Products
for boiler fuel. By using a single 'Tub Grinder" the entire organic
debris of the County can be ground into a compost which will
give the County credit for disposal toward its state stipulated
goal of 50% removal from the waste stream.
The report also recommends more supplemental containers
be placed throughout the county for drop-off of recyclable mate-
rial and the purchase of appropriate processing equipment such
as a glass crusher, balers, etc. The City of Port St. Joe has al-
ready found out that glass is more marketable if it *is crushed to
reduce handling. The City has been contemplating purchase of a
crusher, but the report recommends the County purchase one
crusher for central use.
The report also recommends the county get technical assis-
tance and support in development of a staff and advisory com-
mittee and determine steps to be taken toward full recycling. It
also recommends a public education program through the media
for public awareness for the need of recycling and how to go
IDENTIFIES COUNTY WASTE TARGETS
Much of the report is taken up in identifying the County's
waste composition and which products are recyclable. Many of
the products are of such small amounts they will have to be
stored until a truck load accumulates.
Paper is the largest single waste product in Gulf County.
With a market readily available, much of the County's waste
paper is already being recycled. Paper amounts to 24.7% of the
total volume. Yard waste is next at 20.9%. "Other" is the catego-
ry given the third largest category of wastes and consists of con-
struction debris. Other percentages range from aluminum at
7.7% to rubber at 2.4% which makes up the remainder of the
products which might be recycled if plans are made for its han-

Commissioner Billy Traylor
said, "I didn't consider them an
insult. I took his letter as he Just
stated; a matter of Information."
Traylor continued, "I support-

It's Parks' Turn
to be Held for Ransom to Justify
Still Another Tax Hike in Florida
Last year about this same time, the schools of the state of
Florida were being held hostage for a ransom of more taxes be-
ing levied. The story which we were asked to swallow was that,
as large as the state is and as diverse as its tax revenues are, we
were led to believe we simply must come up with more tax reve-
nue or our school system would go lacking in some of the essen-
This year, the same tactic is being used on our park system,
including the local park which commemorates the signing of the
first and original constitution of our state. The constitution was
so important to our state, that it had to be written down before
Congress would grant statehood to Florida. It was an important
The document was so important that its presence was un-
known for nearly 100 years. It had disappeared. -The State Li-
brary didn't even have the original. It was finally located in the
attic of a private home which was being demolished. The docu-
ment necessary for Florida to become a state had been forgotten
and shoved aside.
Now, the state of Florida, in a continuation of trying to re-
move any semblance or remembrance of Florida's first constitu-
tion, is threatening to shut down the Constitution Park Museum
here in Port St. Joe and remove a vital part of our state's history
The move will save $38,000 a year. Think of that, Florida is
spending a paltry $38,000 a year to display mementos of such
paramount importance and now are threatening to remove even
that meager sum. Remove one staff car and its attendant ex-
penses from the Park Service and save that much! The Park Ser-
vice would still function without even a stutter.
What would happen, do you suppose, if an arm of the federal
government would threaten to close down the section of the mu-
seum displaying the first Constitution of the nation? Is it any
less important to the nation than our state constitution is to
Florida's displayed history?
Our Gulf County delegation should be camping on the door-
step of the Department of Parks and Recreation, expressing their
strongest objections to the closing of Constitution Park Museum,
simply for what it is and what its purpose is. It is a display of
the beginning of our state; the day it was born; the birth pangs
recorded; its first cry of coming into this world.
Holding the schools for ransom resulted in 10.9% increase in
taxes. Now, the state is trying to tell you there isn't $38,000 in
that new windfall to maintain a house which recalls to memory
the day Florida was born and tells you of the attending states-
men in that birth. C'mon men, let's get real here
It would help mightily to maintain our Constitution Park Mu-
seum here in Port St. Joe if you were to sit down, take up your
pencil [not a pet or a typewriter] and scratch out a note to Rep-
resentative Robert Trammell, Senator Pat Thomas, Goyernor
Lawton Chiles, the Park Service director, the Secretary of State,
and tell them how you feel about closing the museum.
It's hard tell if any expression of support or opposition does
any good anymore, but we have it on good authority that is the
best kind of protest to file.
A letter-writing campaign from the people of Gulf County, op-
posing the closing would do a world of good. We need your help
in order to save the Museum and its service to our state and
The Park Service said they were closing 38 installations
throughout the state of Florida which didn't show enough traffic
from visitors to keep them open.
Constitution Park Museum doesn't have this kind of traffic,
but what traffic it does have, sees more than a few animals, a
unique plant or some pretty scenery, or offers a handy place to
set up camp. It gives everyone who stops or visits its confines a
valuable history lesson.
Our City and County governments can protest until they are
blue in the face. They can promulgate Resolution after Resolu-
tion and send them by personal carrier and it's like just so much
water over the dam. It's expected of our local government to op-
pose the Museum closing.
A letter from you ... and you and you ... will speak vol-
umes and have a world of influence. Write today. The Park is
scheduled to be closed on January 1. It will be much easier to
keep It open than it will be to get it re-opened once it is closed.
Hunker Down with Kes
The snow was what we'd been
hoping for, for weeks. A white
Christmas! Well, if it would just
stick and hang on for a couple of
days we'd have a white Christ-
mas. We'd been so excited when
we'd started out "hiking" this
morning. We'd swung down by
Nickey Joe's, but he wasn't at
home. We came back around by
Jackie and Glen's house. Nobody
was home there, either.
I don't remember which one
of us decided we ought to head
out for the big hills up behind Ev-
eritt's Lake, but I imagine it was
Leon. He was the oldest. And you
know how it was in 1957, the old-
est brother kind'a ruled the roost.
We'd climb a hill and then
slide down the other side. Then it
was up the next one and down
again. The trick going down was
avoiding the trees.
'You o.k.?" We were piled up
at the bottom of another "run". I

limbs and saplings to aid my as-

universal truism about despising
your older brother. And most of
the time I subscribed to that
thought. Leon could make my life
miserable He never let me go
with him and Nickey Joe out to
the Dairy Bar. He'd make me
clean out the barn when it was
his turn. And I could not, under
any circumstances, speak to him
at school. But you know what,
when we got off by ourselves so
he didn't have to show off for his
friends and when he wasn't beat-
ing on me or making fun of my

what I mean? He did teach me
how to shoot that old 20 gauge.

days until Christmas, so it's time
to get serious about this Christ-
I've got a lot of things to do. I
have been planning for the past
50 years to get some of what I
need to do around Christmas
time, done before the last two
weeks, so I can take it easy and
coast the last two weeks before
the holiday. I guess I'll finally die
one day, still planning to get a
head start on Christmas without
really getting at the matter.
I do have the Christmas tree
put up and tonight we're getting
the office party out of the way.
That won't leave too much to do
at the last moment or during the
last week. One thing I'm certain
of, though. I'm certain the next
two weeks do not have a trip to
Panama City scheduled, to do
any Christmas shopping. It will
be done here or it won't be done. I
would rather take a beating than
to go through the hassle such a
soiree would entail.

were spending Thanksgiving
there, the town was full of Christ-
mas shoppers on Friday and Sat-
Saturday, as we were prepar-
ing -to start our trip home, we
were eating breakfast in a Crack-
er Barrel. We had to wait 20 min-
utes for a table, as we had to wait
for every meal during the two
days we were in Pigeon Forge. Af-
ter we finally secured a table, we
were sitting next to several ladies
evidently out on a day of shop-
Sure enough, we got to talk-
ing to them and they were a
grandmother, mother, grand-
daughter and aunt from Knox-
ville, who had come to Pigeon
Forge to Christmas shop.
The traffic was hectic until we
got out of town, so evidently a few
other thousand souls had the
same idea as did the family of
women from Knoxville.
I don't know what attracted
so many people there to shop un-
less it was the fact that their
stores were packed with* mer-
chandise and the atmosphere of
things happening, which attract-
ed the customers.
The town was tastefully deco-

the atmosphere, that it was

there was the place to do that
PORT ST. JOE has had its
Christmas parade, now, and the
season is upon us. The mer-

generate the atmosphere that it is

dicative of another season. Admit-
tedly, it was 33 degrees in Pigeon

If the subject of today's article rings a little bell in your mind,
please know that I wrote an article about it a year ago.
Dave Gardner, a comedian of some renown during the 1960's,
once released an album of some of his personal appearances. My
sister has a copy of the album and about a month ago while visiting
with her I listened to it again. "Brother Dave," as he was affection-
ately known, tlevoted a segment of the album. Rejoice, Dear Hearts!
to true love.
In his comic attempt to identify true love, Brother Dave uses an
18-year-old boy as his primary character. "When an 18-year-old boy
kisses a 16-year-old girl and holds her tight, Dear Hearts, he may
think it's true love, but it's not," Brother Dave said. "When that
same boy kisses a 25-year-old woman and holds her tight, you may
think that's true love, but, Dear Hearts, it's not," he went on. "But
when that same 18-year-old boy kisses a 45-year-old woman and
holds her tight, Rejoice, Dear Hearts, because that's true love!"
With that definition clearly in mind, Dear Hearts, please be ad-
vised that true love is alive and not doing too well in Crestview,
Florida, a town located a short distance to the northwest of us near
The "affair" came to light about a year ago when a 45-year-old
woman was brought to trial for having an affair with a 12-year-old
boy. The boy was introduced to the woman by her daughter who at-
tended school with him. Shortly after their introduction, according
to the news releases I read, their acquaintance grew into a romance
and lasted until the boy's grandmother found out what was going
down and filed charges against the woman.
The woman, Pamela Jean Mouer, was found guilty of having
sex with the boy and performing a lewd and lascivious act on him.
She was placed on probation and released. As part of the release,
Mrs. Mouer was barred from having contact with the boy for 10
That, according to the report I read, was on April 1, 1991.
On April 2, 1992, according to a handwritten statement submit-
'ted by the boy, he and Mrs. Mouer renewed their relationship and
continued it until Mrs. Mouer was discovered hiding in a closet in
the boy's bedroom at his grandmother's house on August 11, 1992.
Did I mention that Mrs. Mouer is married? Her husband, Ro-
deric Mouer, declined comment except to say they are still married,
although Mrs. Mouer remains in jail since the last charges were
filed. Mrs. Mouer, by the way, confirmed the boy's statement that
they (she and the boy) had renewed their relationship.
Assistant State Attorney David Fleet said he will seek a prison
term for Mrs. Mouer when she is brought to trial on January 5.
"The entire situation is tragic in the sense that this young boy is fa-
miliar with something that he most likely Is not mature enough to
handle," Fleet said. "This has caused him difficulties in school and
with others his own age.
I can imagine and tragic, Dear Hearts, is not the proper word to
describe what's going on between Mrs. Mouer and this child: and he
Is a child, no matter what his physical stature or mental state.
Why, Mrs. Mouer is old enough to be his mother
If it seems that I'm making light of this incident, please know
that I feel very strongly about It. In my opinion, a serious miscar-
riage of justice has occurred since April 1, 1991. Mrs. Mouer, in my
opinion, should have been in jail since that time.
In jail or in a mental institution is where I would want to be if I
had done the same thing to a 12-year-old girl.........or deadly

r I CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM
SChild May Lead
S".- .* By
Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.
Parents are frequently urging children to do things at too early
an age. They often buy toys that are inappropriate for the child's
age because the toy appeals to the parent. They can not wait until
the child will enjoy the toy or pick it out for himself.
The early anticipation of unrealistic expectations leads many
parents into difficulties with their children. To work with the devel-
opmental stage of their children, parents need to know at what ages
children usually can accomplish certain activities. An example to
punish a one-year-old about potty training is no help. Most children
will gain some6 bowel and urine control about one-and-a-half or two
years. They will usually be two years old before they are able to
cooperate with the parent when the parent anticipates the child's
need to urinate or have a bowel movement. Children are usually
two-and-a-half years old before they tell the parents before they
have to go to the toilet and they are usually three years old before
they can take down their own pants and go to the toilet alone.
If a child does accomplish toilet training earlier, that is fine, but
he should not be pushed to do things before he is capable of doing
Some parents will keep a tight schedule of activities for their
children. This probably goes back to the saying about idle hands
finding mischief, but children need quiet time. They need to be able
to think about what happened at school that day or in the neigh-
borhood as they were playing.
Another example of hurrying a child is to dress him in clothes
more appropriate for a teenager than a child. They will dress the
part and soon act the part if allowed to do so.
Each developmental stage in a child's life is noted to have some
advantages and some disadvantages. Parents need to accept the
disadvantages, enjoy the advantages, and not try to hurry the child
into the next stage. Children need bright spots in their lives and
need the time to smell the flowers as they go along.
With Christmas approaching, parents need to choose toys and
gifts with care. Good planning for age appropriate selections will
bring its reward.
The Gulf County Search and
Rescue organization has enjoyed
a tremendous increase in mem-
bership during the past year and
has instituted a new unit,. the
horse squad, and purchased a 16'
boat for the diving unit. Twenty-
five new members have joined the
rescue unit Increasing its active
membership to 65.
The unit is county-wide with
many husband and wife teams
involved. These members volun-
teer their time for once a month
meetings and to assist the Gulf
County Sheriffs Department in
times of emergency, aiding in the
search and rescue of lost persons
and drowning victims. During the
past year the unit answered six
calls for lost persons, all of whom
were found alive and healthy, and
assisted in the recovery of a
drowning victim at Cape San
Blas. They also cleaned roads and
cleared debris in the aftermath of
the tornado which struck the
Wewahitchka area earlier this

A Sixth Grader's Story
One night as I was walking
home I saw something unusual. I
passed a house that was very
dark except for one light, it looked
like a lady. And it was, it was a
beautiful lady. She glowed in the
dark, and had hair so pretty and
silky. And her eyes were so gentle
looking. I soon fell asleep and
when I woke up it was as if it was
a dream mystery. Til this day on I
still wonder as I pass by that dark
and lonely house.

Well, I got so excited about Thanksgiving weekend, I completely
missed our deadlines last week so with apologies to both papers,
I'll try not to let that happen again.
ROTC students had a rare experience last Friday. Kings Bay
Submarine Base, just north of Jacksonville, hosted Cmdr. McLeod
and a number of cadets and chaperones (including yours truly) to a
tour of the USS Tennessee, a ballistic missile sub of the Trident
class. These are the really large subs that stay submerged two to
three months at a time, equipped with 24 nuclear warheads as a
deterrent to a sneak nuclear attack on the U.S. by any one. The
sailors that man these subs must be the mostly highly trained peo-
ple as a group in the armed services. If you think I was impressed,
you're right. Picture living on alert for 60-90 days under the sea in
a sub that is almost two football fields long (586 feet) and has four
levels of operational activities (like four floors in a building). It was
good to know these folks were on our side.
Can you succeed? My group's guide was a chief petty officer
who was a high school dropout whom the Navy took in the 70's
(can't do that any more). He not only knew the computer operations
of this giant sub but he had found time to get his high school diplo-
ma, a B.S. degree and a Master's degree in mathematics. He'll retire
in one year at age 37 with full benefits, and then plans get this -
- to teach math. Only in America!
Next Tuesday, Channel 7 and the Buffalo Rock Pepsi Company
that sponsor "Student of the Week" on T.V. will be at WHS to inter-
view Janice Mincy and Casi Lindsey congratulations to these two
student leaders at WHS.
I was surprised to hear many people comment on this column's

ered by wind-up engines. A few
trips around the tree and then it
was time to wind up again.
In the '20's and '30's the first
electric sets began to appear, and
by the 1950's, it seemed as if eve-
ry child either already had a train
under the tree, or desperately
wished Santa would leave one
Interest in model trains be-
gan to decline during the '60's
and '70's with the appearance of
car racing sets and electronic
games. But by that time, many of
the children who received trains
in the '50's had already developed
a love for model railroading as a
hobby. Elaborate rail yard layouts
have been filling basements and
spare bedrooms ever since.
Model trains are once again a
Christmas favorite for the young
(and the young at heart). If you're
thinking of putting a train under
your tree this year, model train
manufacturer Bachmann Indus-
tries recommends the larger "C"
scale sets. They're easy for chil-
dren to set up and operate, and
they don't require a special layout
board track can be laid directly
on the carpeting.

faith Christian NeZUws
By Anthony Lee
The students here at Faith Christian School have just returned
from Thanksgiving holidays. As part of our annual Thanksgiving
celebration, the first and second grade classes performed their ren-
dition of the first Thanksgiving. It was a great success, and as usu-
al, the teachers did a wonderful job directing their classes in this
commemorative performance. This program serves to remind us of
the many things for which we have to be thankful. One thing that
we were extremely thankful for was the lunch that Mrs. Peggy
Schweikert and Mrs. Vivian Floyd served us on the Wednesday be-
fore Thanksgiving. Our students received a thank-you letter from
the Rescue Mission in Panama City for taking cans of food for the
Rescue Mission's Annual Thanksgiving Dinner.,
Christmas is what we are looking for, not just because of the
enormous amount of presents we hope to receive (HINT! HINT!), but
because it is the one time that people gather together and worship
the birth of Jesus Christ. To help celebrate the birth of Christ, the
-third grade will perform a Christmas play. Also, the students in
grades nine through twelve are building a float for the Christmas
parade. We hope the float brings glory to God.
The students at Faith Christian are happy to have been a part
;of the American Cancer Society's "Hike for Hope". This program is
designed to raise money for cancer research. Mark Langley, an
F.C.S. eighth grader, was awarded a Super Nintendo Entertainment
System for being the student who raised the most money in Gulf
County. We would like to congratulate Mark for all his hard work.
Our principal, Mr. Fred Goebert, accompanied several students
*on a visit to Bryan College in Dayton, Tennessee. The students from
;Faith Christian who went were Greg Lemons, Gregory Capps, Don-
'nie Banta, and Amy Goebert. They all seemed to have had a great

my own, are Germany and Eng-

things from England. The chil-

"If I Were Santa"
By Judson Carnley
"If I were Santa Claus, I
would go to Jon Curtis Gates'
house first because he is very
nice. I would give him a Beebee
gun, one that cocks and one that
goes far. I would give him beebees
too. I would give him a toy truck.
It would be nice. Ho, Ho, Ho!"
Student of the Week
Sue McDaniel picked Justin
Miller to be the. Star Student of
the Week. Justin is in the fifth
grade and is the son of Daniel
and Tunnie Miller. When he
grows.up, Justin would like to be
a scientist. Since math is his fa-
vorite subject, he is on the way!
Daniel admires his parents and
sister Lindsay. His favorite TV
show is Home Alone 2. If he could
visit anywhere, he would choose
Hawaii, Tennessee, and Alaska.
Daniel had this to say about him-
self, "I love pretty girls, love my
parents and sister, like karate,
football, baseball, hunting and
fishing." (How much more all
American can you get than that?)
Daniel finished the sentence,
School is... by saying, "School is
fun because I like all my teachers
and subjects. But math is the
best one of all." Daniel is a joy.

Tips for Holiday
Enhance your holiday photo-
graphs by following these tips
from The Photography Informa-
*Hold the camera vertically
when photographing faces. Most
people tend to hold the camera
horizontally out of habit, ease of
use, and comfort. Faces are verti-
cal; thus, a vertical frame is more
*When photographing in-
doors by a window, stand with
the window to your back. The
subject should face the window
so that the light is full and even,
thereby reducing unflattering
shadows. Rather than use a flash:
in this instance, use a higher
speed film, such as ASA 400.
*Compose photos within the
camera frame (rather than crop-
ping later on), and he sure to pay
attention to any distractions in
the background. Before you press
the shutter, be sure the composi-
tion is uncluttered.
