Take Over Inspection Duties

Tornado, High Wind


Damage Structures


In Port St. Joe Area

Late Wednesday Night aid Early
Thursday Morning of Last Week


Inclement weather last
Wednesday night and early
Thursday morning of last week
buffeted the City and its sub-
urbs. causing appreciable dam-
age to several buildings and
homes in the vicinity.
With tornado watches being
put out Wednesday afternoon by
the weather bureau, residents of
the City were on the alert, while
experiencing bad weather as
they retired for the evening.
Most of the inclement
weather hit this part of the
Gulf coast after midnight,
with at least one reported tor-
nado touching down in a resi-
dential area, doing extensive
damage. High winds caused
additional damage in the City
Limits, with pine trees being
blown over; one on a Tenth
Street dwelling.
A tornado was reported in
the Simmons Bayou area by
Mrs. Jean McMillian, which she
said, "Sounded like a freight
train going over my house. I had
heard a .tornado before, so I
knew what it was."
The tornado demolished a
decorative brick wall which
screened off the carport and
took some shingles from the
roof. The falling bricks damaged
Mrs. McMillian's car in the pro-
cess.
The tornado did its heavi-
est damage in the McMillian's
back yard, where it did heavy
damage to a barn. The funnel
cloud lifted much of the tin
off the roof of the barn and
destroyed the middle section.
A mobile home next door was
untouched by the tornado.
To the rear of the McMil-
lian property, the tornado lift-
ed the roof off a mobile home
being used by Mr. and Mrs.
Chris Earley as a tack room at
their horse arena. The mobile
home was heavily damaged
from the winds.
Here in the Port St. Joe,
heavy winds blew a tree over on
the back porch section of the
Lottie Parziale home on Tenth
Street, causing damage to the
home.


Mrs. Parziale said the gust
of wind occurred at about 11:30
p.m. Wednesday. It was the
fourth time a falling tree had
damaged her home or out-
buildings since 1985. At that
time Hurricane Kate deposited a
tree across the top of her home.
A second tree damaged a shop
building in the back yard and a
third blew across the driveway.
The McMillian barn is
shown in the top photo, with
its damaged roof. The middle
photo shows a demolished
brick wall at the carport en-
trance and the bottom photo
shows the damaged porch of
Mrs. Lottie Parziale's home
with a pine tree lying across
the top.


Brick wall knocked over by Tornado Thursday.


High winds Wednesday night blew a pine tree on this Tenth Street home.


Port St. Joe's government
took the final step Tuesday night,
to convert their building permit-
ting duties over to the Gulf
County Building Department. The
City Commission adopted an or-
dinance which would coordinate
the inspection and permit fees
with those of the County system. ,
Gulf County strictly follows
the Standard Building Code rules
and regulations for building and
the fee schedule for inspection
purposes.
The new ordinance would
raise permitting fees within the
City on some pf the more preva-
lent and less expensive inspection
services but on an overall average
only one service showed an ap-
preciable increase.
Building Department super-
intendent Don Butler pointed out
possibly the most used portion of
the building permit ordinance in
the old City rule, was omitted un-
der the County guidelines. 'There
will be no building or permit fees
levied on repairs or roof relace-
ment such as is now levied under
the City ordinance. The County
rules do not require a permit or
inspection for these purposes."
Probably the most drastic fee
increase would be in the charge
for inspection of plans. "The
County ordinance requires that
hlalf the value of the building per-
mit be charged for plan inspec-
tion. The City ordinance stipulat-
ed a $10.00 charge. A house
which required a $200 permit
would require a $100 plan in-
spection. The plans are actually
inspected and thoroughly
searched for plan or code viola-
tions before the building is built,"
Butler said, "rather than wait un-
til it is completed then find code
violations."
FEE CHANGES
The main changes in the in-
spection, fee schedule, according
to Butler, are:
Minimum permit fee of
$50.00. Previously, it was $15.00.
The permit fee pays for nine in-
spections to determine that all
phases of the building process
are done according to code and
standard building practices.
Electrical fee for new con-
struction, raised from $35 to $50.
Changeout service fee increased
from $17.50 to $25.00.
Plumbing fees and mechani-


cal fees have been charged $25
for each procedure. In the future
the fee will be based on a percent-
age of the installation costs.
A permit has been introduced
for permitting of docks, seawalls
and boardwalks and decks at a
rate of $100. Swimming pool per-
mits, $60; Mobile and modular
homes, $50; Re-inspection $25.
Other fees are substantially
the same as they have always
been.
EFFECTIVE DATE
The changeover of the inspec-
tion system will become effective
after the first of the year, with the
City phasing out its inspection
department.
Permits for buildings or re'
modeling may still be purchased
at the City Hall or they may be
secured at the Building Depart-
ment in the Gulf County Court-
house.
COMPLAINTS
Stewart Lyle led a parade of
four citizens filing complaints
over the charges for .garbage col-
lection which were instituted in
November.
Lyle said his sandwich shop
generated only one bag of garbage
a day and he felt the $49 a month
charge was excessive. Mayor Pate
explained that all sandwich shops
were charged the same with his
sze 'container. Lyle coun'ered-
that three businesses In the same
building used the same dumpster
and he felt his charge was exces-
sive.
Mayor Pate revealed that Bill
Koran had also objected to fees
charged the St. Joe Motel and
Pantry Pride Restaurant and to
his boat sales business on High-
say 98.
Again Mayor Pate said the
restaurant charge had been ap-
plied, plus a separate charge for
each room in the hotel. The Com-
mission agreed to take a look at
the situation because, as they ex-
pressed, a new rate schedule be-
ing introduced, could contain'
some inequities.
Both objectors were informed
that it was costing more to offer
garbage service in the City than it
had in years past.
OTHER BUSINESS

fore the Commission Tuesday,

Health Insurance

Companies Have A Change of Heart
With Threat of New Government Plan

We see where the 250-odd health insurance companies
throughout the nation have pooled their resources and come up
with a plan to provide medical insurance for everyone in the na-
tion. Even for those who have pre-existing conditions .. at an
affordable price.
Of course, this is just what the nation needed to bring the
expense of getting sick into line. It was a long time coming and
we applaud the insurance community for the rest of we people
who have not been able to purchase their protective product
over the years because of those same pre-existing conditions.
When we think of the years of anxiety we spent, unable to
purchase medical insurance for what the industry termed pre-
existing conditions providing too much of a risk to their fragile
economy, we get angry. It's no fun, realizing that if you become
ill-especially with one of the really expensive illnesses such as
the need for open heart surgery-you face financial disaster.
We have a suspicious nature about such things, we suppose,
but you really don't suppose their sudden all-inclusive, non-
denial plan could be because they see a plan for universal cover-
age by the government looming on the horizon, do you? A plan
which would make medical insurance from private carriers obso-
lete?
Or course not!
Didn't your insurance company tell you they were going
broke with their medical insurance offerings? If they were going
broke, why are they suddenly coming up with a plan to save that
facet of their business?
We agree, the nation needs something like this. It will remove
the burden of having to pay for the nation's health care from
those who are lucky enough to have health insurance and can
pay their medical bills. Therein lies the reason for most of the
medical overcharge we see being foisted off on the sick public
with medical insurance. With everybody able to cover their own
medical treatment costs, you will see costs take a nosedive. An
aspirin tablet may revert to costing you 50* on your hospital bill
rather than $10.00.
Our own sense of "getting back" at the insurance companies
for their years of ignoring our peace of mind-Just so they could
insure only those who didn't need it-causes us to .want to say
to the government, "Go ahead and come up with a plan which
'will make medical insurance obsolete!" But our conservative-
bent causes us to welcome, instead, this sudden plan by the in-
surance companies, even if they could have made it 40 years
sooner and saved everyone a lot of grief and anxiety for having to
go through catastrophic illnesses with no hope, simply because
they couldn't come up with the money to pay for treatment.


Now, You're Talking!

We see where the County Commission is planning to take an-
other look at the feasibility of the County collecting its own gar-
bage, rather than have an out-of-county firm do the collecting.
We'retin favor of that. As-a matter of fact, we were in favor of the
County getting into the collecting business, at the customer's ex-
pense, prior to their contracting out the service.
We can understand why they did it. They wanted to cut all
ties to solid waste so the people would not expect them to make
concessions which would cost the ad valorem tax payer. They
were trying to sever that umbilical cord permanently and surely.
Now, the Commission wants to do a study of what it would
cost to into the business and if it would be economical for the
customers of the service.
It is working for the City of Port St. Joe. Of course, they al-
ready had their rolling stock. That's the largest outlay of money.
Port st. Joe's garbage rates have gone up with the new system
designed to emphasize recycling, but the rates are still lower
than the county contracted rates. The use of Port St. Joe's col-
lection system is mandatory, which will have to be a require-
ment of a County system, probably as early as next year when
stronger state requirements are applied to the matter of solid
waste disposal.
Gulf County, as well as every other county in the state of
Florida, has been put on notice that it is ultimately responsible
for disposal at a state-required standard. The County needs to
get in the collection or draw up a contract with its present ser-
vice company to guarantee that the requirements of the County
are met by the private contractor. Regardless of whether the
County gets into the collection business or not, they need to
take these steps to keep the Commissioners out of trouble with
the state regulators.

The snow kept coming, re-
lentlessly. I tried to step in Leon's
footprints as we trudged up an-
other hill. It was getting colder.
And darker. I was thinking back -
- seeing if I could ever recall be-
ing lost before. It's amazing how
fast things can get discombulat-
ed. One minute we were running
through these hills, playing,
laughing, having a great time. In
a flash, we're lost. No warning. No

Lion that things weren't righL I
wonder If real trouble always
slips upon you like that.
"Do you see anything you rec-
ognize?" Leon had topped the
ridge.
"Not yet."
I pulled up along side, "How
about some smoke? Somebody's
got to have a fire going!"
David dropped down beside
us, bless his heart, the deepening
snow made it tough on his little
legs. "I bet Mom has got our fire
place a'roarin'l"
I'd thought of that same fire
place at least 20 times in the past
half hour. Everybody in town
laughed about Mother and "her
fire". The very first day over in


late August that it looked like it
was about to possibly get cold,
she'd have Leon bring In some
fire wood. We'd have smoke rising
from our chimney with it 80 de-
grees outside. We'd tell Mom it
was too early..........it's still Au-
gustl.......the neighbors were
laughing.........She didn't care.
She loved the coziness of it. She
allowed that it added warmth not
only to the house but also to the
heart.......Dad would Just smile
and raise another window.
"I bet they're warm sitting
around that fire right now." David
was blowing on his red fingers,
trying to pump a little feeling into
them.
"I'd jump straddle of that fire
right now." I was as cold as Da-.

vid. "If we live to get back home,
we ain't never putting it out
again. I don't care-"
"Do you see anything, Leon?"
David's voice was somewhere be-
tween pleading and desperation.
"Naw. too many trees. And
the haze up here is thicker than
usual."
Hazel Is he nuts? That's not
haze, it's darkness!
"Leon, it's going to be night
soon.
'We're o.k.; If we can just get
over that next hill, I think we'll be
alright."
"That's what you said four
hills agol" I'd a'been mad if I,
wasn't so scared.
"Leon," I detected a slight
tremble in Dave. Mark's voice,
"have you ever actually been this
way before?"
"I know we're north of the
lake and we're heading west,
that's got to be taking us toward
the house."
I studied him for a brief mo-
ment. Leon could tell you things
that weren't true. Was this one of
those times?
'Tell us the truth, are we
lost?"
"No, we are not lost"
"Do we know where we are?'"-
"Just about. If we can just get
over that next hill."
"I knew itl We are lost!"
"We are not!"
"Fellas," Dave stood up be-.
tween us, "if we don't get ,back.
will Santa give my Roy Rogers
gun and holster set to someone
else?"
"No, of course not." Leon was
laughing like that was a crazy,
impossible idea. I saw he was try-
ing to comfort David so I joined in
the laughter. But I got to thinking
about that Western 'Flyer I was
hoping he had in that sack for
me.....
"Maybe Santa will find us,.
give us our presents, and point
us toward the house."
"He and Rudolph might give
us a ride."
We started laughing. I don't
know why. There wasn't anything
ealy fuiny about' being lost ,.
You know.. what,; I'd trade
every present I've ever gotten, and
that I'm ever going to get, to be
around that fire right now."
Leon and I nodded our heads
in agreement.
"Do you reckin' Mom and
Dad are worried?" It was a stupid
question and I don't know why I
asked it.
Nobody answered. We all had
the same picture. Mother, stand-
ing by the fire, hands that.
couldn't stay still would be
smoothing out that apron with
the Christmas trees on it, "Honey,
I'm worried about the boys." '
"They'll be fine. They've been
in the woods before." But Dad
would be slipping into that big
mackilnaw. I'd bet anything he'd.
been watching for us since the
snow started falling in the early
afternoon. You could bet the farm
he's looking for us by now.
'You know. guys, we're very
lucky." You're darn right, I'd
trade every Christmas gift every-
given to be in front of that fire

Food Doesn't Last Long Around the Crew At Ou


WE HAVE A bunch of glut-
tons working here at The Star.
They'll eat anything and lots of it.
Food left lying -around the back

chance of survival... or spoiling.
It's snarffed up before you can
say, "Who got it?"
We had a Jolly black man who
worked here for several years by
the name of Michael Leslie. Mi-
chael was happy all the time and
was the pride of the firm. Michael
came up with a gem one day
which set us all in our place. I'm
not a glutton, you understand,
but I'm using the "us" because
Michael was all-inclusive in his
statement.
Michael remarked one day
with one of his mile-wide grins,
'You all are the craziest white
folks I have ever been around.
You leave change from a pur-
chase lying around for days and
nobody touches it, but leave
something to eat lying around un-
guarded and it's gone before it

even gets cool!"
The sad part about it was,
Michael was right!
Michael went on to bigger
and better things when his wife
went to work for a Tampa hospi-
tal. He got a good job there, using
the trade we had taught him, so
Michael isn't with us anymore.
He comes by and visits every time
he comes home and looks for
something good to eat, lying on
the lunch table which takes up
the most prominent position in
the press room. He became a
glutton 'by association, I guess.
THURSDAY NIGHT, the glut-


tony rose to the surface when we
had our annual Christmas din-
ner. Everyone was there except
Kesley, who was down in Daytona
Beach at a Property Appraiser's
school. We saved Kesley a ... no-
tice that "a" barbecued pork
rib.
Kesley is becoming one of the
gang after several years of writing
his column. Before he started as-
sociation with us, his wife Cathy
tells us that he didn't care if he
ever ate a meal or not. He would
just snack on a sandwich or
something.
Now, almost every Wednes-
day. Kesley will come by and ask,


"What's for dinner?" in an expec-
tant sort of way; like he was real-
ly looking forward to putting on
the feedbag.
But Kesley wasn't there
Thursday night,' when we barbe-
cued 30 pounds of ribs, 10 fryers,
a whole tenderloin, a venison
ham and warmed up some pre-
cooked turkey breast.
Just a little snack.
We set all that on the table
with baked beans, potato salad,
green salad; with "death by choc-
olate", strawberry delight and
fruit cake, for dessert.
The last time I counted, there
were only 11 people working here
so that should have been enough.
There are two man and wife
combinations who work here, but
the rest brought their wives or
husbands and children.
That SHOULD have been
enough, but I call your attention
to the beginning paragraph of
this article.
The baked beans disappeared


first. It appeared to me as if there
was about a gallon of baked
beans in the bowl and they disap-
peared. Just like that! Next, the
potato salad was vacuumed up.
before I .could get any. I did 'get
some green salad and a drop of
salad dressing.
-I sat at the table which con-
tained the "death by chocolate"
and the strawberry delight, Just
to make sure I got a taste, and
darned if it didn't just about get'
away from me.
WILLIE, PAT AND JOHN did
the cooking,. and the tasting .
. so I didn't worry too much about
them. They "taste" as time pro-
gresses, when they cook. I mista-
kenly thought the edge would be
taken Off their appetite, by .the
time they had spent nearly two
hours cooking the meat.
They ate all the wings off the ;'
chickens, testing, to see if they
were done, you know. The wings
are my favorite part but by the.

Then Wendell Campbell ar-
rived at the house and joined in
the sampling, tasting, snifng the
a 'tioma and generally grazing over
the prepared food.
I tell you, it was a disaster for

Phantry

Wendell Campbell


Who's the Cheapest

Man In America?
During the summer, right after I graduated from high school, I
worked with a man who my fellow workers dubbed, "The Cheapest
Man in the World." After working with him for a few weeks I was in-
clined to agree: That is until last week when I read about Roy
Haynes who lives in Fort Lauderdale.
Roy may be the cheapest person I have ever heard of, but let
me tell you a little about Roy and the man I worked with and you
judge for yourself.
Joe (not his real name), the man I worked with, was just as
proud of his frugal ways as Roy is, but there was one difference; he
didn't go on national TV and brag about it. Roy did. Joe would
have, too, I'm sure, but no one ever invited him.
Joe didn't drive to work like most people, although he had a
nice car and lived several miles from the office. If he wasn't allowed
to drive a company truck home, he walked, but he was never late. I
was told that he wasn't allowed to drive company vehicles home, as
he once was, because the trucks always came back with empty gas
tanks. That, of course, was gossip, but I don't doubt it happened.
When our work crew left for the work site in the mornings, we
would always stop and have coffee and some of us would have
breakfast or a donut or two. Joe never had coffee or anything else,
unless someone offered to buy. He never had soft drinks or snacks
and almost always brought his lunch to work.
Joe's lunch consisted of a couple of peanut butter (it was rea-
sonably cheap back then) sandwiches (no jelly) and an over-ripe ba-
nana or orange that I wouldn't feed to a hog. One day he brought
an apple that was almost edible-looking.
According to some of my fellow workers, Joe never went out to
eat unless it was a free-food promotion, as in political fish fry or
company picnic. He never went to movies or any other entertain-
ment and all his clothes were bought from the Salvation Army
clothing store.
Joe's house didn't have a hot water heater or air conditioner,
but it did have a wood burning stove that he warmed by during the
winter. The wood for the stove was cut by Joe. Joe was also report-
ed to be as rich as six feet deep in a barnyard manure pile, but I
would never have suspected such without knowing and working
with him.
Pretty cheap, you say? Wait a minute! You haven't read about
Roy Haynes, the man who's cheap and proud of it, have you? Roy
went on nationwide TV to brag about his frugal ways.
Roy, according to the news article I read, was dubbed as the
"Cheapest Man in America" on the Joan Rivers Show. Roy is so
cheap he buys the cheapest two-ply toilet paper he can find and
separates it and re-rolls it into single ply rolls. He also hangs used
paper towels out to dry and re-uses them.........over and over again.
Roy never buys anything but clearance-rack clothes and won't
spend over $10 on any item. He walks to a nearby bank for free cof-
fee in the morning, but when he makes his own (on weekends, I
guess) he uses used grounds with a little fresh grounds on top.
'You can't taste the difference," he was quoted as saying.
Roy is self-employed. He combs garbage bins for items he can
repair and sells them at flea markets or through classified ads. He
earns about $15,000 a year working about 20 hours a week. (I won-
der if that kind of money can be made around here doing the same
thing. I'm working about 60 hours a week and making about the
same as Roy.)
So, you decide who's the cheapest, Joe or Roy. By the way, I've
called Roy and asked him to come to, my house and offer some cor-
ner-cutting ideas. When he gets through I'm going to pay Jim half
of what he charges. r m th
I've got t66 start somewhere and I'm sure ole Roy will under-
stand! l

Raffields Hit With $7,200 Fine By Feds
For Alleged Mishandling of Government Loan In Re-construction of Fisheries Complex


Gene Raffleld and Raffield
Fisheries had their first of two
dates in court for sentencing on
government charges Monday. The
charges stemmed from the han-
dling of a government loan used
in rebuilding the Raffleld Fisher-
ies business here in Port St. Joe
which was destroyed by fire in
1986.
The firm employs 200 people.
Gene Raffield was fined
$7,200 for federal charges of ob-
structing investigations into his
handling of the government loan.
Still facing the local business-
man is a hefty fine of possibly $2
million on charges of falsifying
documents to cover up so-called


"kickback" payments received
from contractors. Raffield pleaded
guilty to one count of misusing
under $100 in government funds.
NO MONEY MISSING
The crux of the charges seem
to be that the firm used some of
the government money to re-build
portions of the business not stip-
ulated in the loan papers. Gov-
ernment prosecutors have made
the statement, "There's no money
missing. It's all accounted for and
was spent on the reconstruction
of the plant. Raffield deviated
from his plan in the reconstruc-
tion process, which is against
government loan agreements."


Raffield himself told The Star,
'The main construction work this
loan covered was a freezer-
warehouse complex. If I hadn't
built the motor room on one side
of the street and the warehouse
on the other, there would be no
problem with the government. We
made the mistake of putting a
parking lot between the power
building and the freezer itself."
Raffield, Sperry & Associates,
a construction firm, and Mack
Gay, Inc., a refrigeration compa-
ny, were charged with issuing er-
roneous documents to cover up
the change in plans.
The false documents led to
the criminal charges of obstruct-

court date will be set.
"It's something I have never
experienced before. The govern-
ment has been four years in this
case, keeping us all upset with
their claims and I just wanted to

"I could eat that whole string
of popcorn off of that tree." David
reminded my stomach it hadn't
had a thing since that half biscuit
early this morning.
"How about one of those can-
dy apples?"
"Listen, I'm so hungry I could
eat -some of those little carrots
Mom ruins the roast with."
We were laughing again. Be-
ing lost will make you do crazy
things. :, ..
'We've got to move on." Leon
didn't say it like ,he was in
charge, but more like it was the
only possible choice we had.
I don't know if it was the rest
or the laughter but I felt better as
we stood up to move on. We start-


ed down another snow covered
hillside in what we hoped was a
semi-westerly direction. But this
cliff was the steepest yet and it
was dark now. What a way to
spend Christmas Evel I bet Mom
and Dad are some more worried.
'Course, they ain't no more wor-
ried tha-
Leon disappeared! He just
stepped over the cliff and van-
ished! Dave and I crawled over on
our bellies and felt the snow and
rocks giving way. We tumbled
head long into the black
abyss.........

Resolution of
Respect for
Robert Buchert
Death has again entered the
Chapter Hall of the Order of the
Eastern Star and called to the
eternal Home a dearly loved
brother who has completed his
faithful labor here in ministering
to the cry of the orphan, to the
call of want and to the piteous
wail of sorrow, and as a recom-
pense has received the welcome
plaudit, "well done," by the Great
Master; and
Whereas, the loving Father
has called our beloved and re-
spected brother home, and he
having been a true and faithful
member of our Mystic Order,
therefore be it resolved that Gulf
Chapter No. 191, Order of the
Eastern Star of Port St. Joe, in
testimony of its loss, drape its
Charter in mourning for 30 days,
that we tender to the family our
sincere condolence in their deep
affliction, and that a copy of these
resolutions be sent to the family.

One of the most exciting
revolutions in cosmetic dentistry
is the use of composite materi-
als that can be molded onto
your teeth to change their
shape, fill spaces, and result in
the smile you've always wanted.
The dentist can now close
spaces between teeth (the Terry
Thomas syndrome), cover dis-
colored teeth, making them
lighter and more attractive. He
can rebuild and reshape disfig-
ured or chipped teeth, often
making crowning unnecessary.
He can fill in eroded areas;
lengthen front teeth that have
worr down; and hide gold or
amalgam fillings that show when
a person smiles. It is also possi-
ble to bond tooth-colcred plastic


total. Des Baxter bucketed 17
and Toby Thomas added 11, as
the Sharks continued to master
the Tigers in every sport this sea-

High School

SEMESTER TESTS 12/17 12/18
There's so much activity it's hard to cover everything, but here
goes! Semester exams are Thursday and Friday, December 17 and
18. Thursday, students leave at 12:30 (after lunch); Friday, they are
dismissed at 12:00 for the Christmas Holidays classes resume
for students January 5th, Tuesday after New Year's.
I hope parents will encourage students to try to do their best on
these exams. Sometimes students don't take them seriously, and as
a result do poorly, resulting in an unexpected drop in the report
card grade. We make every effort to guard against this happening,
but there's always some that just don't think it's important until it's
too late.
It was crowded at WHS Friday night. Congratulations to the
Band for their fine Christmas Concert in front of 200 or so fans. At
the other end, Boys basketball against powerful Grand Ridge at-
tracted the largest basketball crowd in years. It's good to see bas-
ketball rebounding (? no pun) in popularity. Keep coming we ap-
preciate the support
Recently WHS received an early Christmas gift. 'Thanks for
helping" goes to Mr. and Mrs. Joe Davis, who donated a whole set of
basketball shorts to our J.V. girls' basketball team. They look great,
and we since rely appreciate it. Anytime anyone would like to help
us in a similar manner, believe me when I say we'll appreciate it
Thanks again to Mr. and Mrs. Joe Davis.
By the end of the holidays, there's a chance WHS may have its
first SRO (Security Resource Officer). The program was initiated in
Port St. Joe, and now is being readied for WHS. We always can use
an extra hand to help maintain the educational atmosphere needed
for students to do their best It only takes a few students to disrupt
things for all, and we're in favor of anything that keeps disruptions
to a minimum.
I would like to encourage parents to preach tolerance to stu-
dents. It may be inevitable that when you put enough students to-
gether there will be some personal problems and conflicts, but per-
sonal problems of this nature need to be solved somewhere else -
not at school where it causes others to have their education dis-
rupted. We have numerous staff to counsel personal problems -
please ask your student to give us a chance to mediate personal
problems if it must be brought to school. One or two isolated inci-
dents can be blown out of proportion and give our school unde-
served bad publicity. Too many good things are happening!!
Hey Merry Christmas and Happy New New from all of us to
all of you.

Held Monday Morning
What a nice way to start the
weekly Mr. Terry Stryker and the
Junior High and Senior High
Band presented a concert of not-
ed Christmas selections. Soloist
Jason Mooneyham played two se-,

Kent and James Taunton also,
played a trumpet duet. You could'
tell it was a true success when'
the students started singing the,'
carols with the band. We are so
proud of our band.

Ice Skating In Tallahassee
Mrs. Baxley took her home-

trip. The arena was set up for a
limited time and our students
were very fortunate to get to at-

arena is in Montgomery. The stu-
dents found out that it was easier
than they thought!

WHAT CHRISTMAS MEANS TO ME
Christmas means more to me than gifts, presents, food and
decorations. To me it is Jesus' birthday and getting to be with fami-
ly and friends. To others it might mean something else. The reason
why Christmas is my favorite holiday is because it is Jesus' birth-
day. I hope the homeless people have a happy Christmas. If I could,
I would find all the canned food I cbuld and give some to each one. I
hope someday they will get a good job and home. Well, I don't know
how your Christmas will be. but mine will be great. The greatest
Christmas present for anyone would be to accept Jesus Christ as
their Savior. Please remember the true meaning of Christmas.

Extension Notes



Roy Lee Carter

Gulf County Extension Service


to watch it slowly die.
Many plants produce special-
ized leaves, sun leaves and
"shade leaves." As a rule, sun
leaves are smaller and thicker
than shade leaves. Sun leaves
help plants avoid light' injury in
very sunny areas. But, they don't
make the most efficient use of low
light in food production. Shade
leaves usually are larger and
thinner. They help plants make
as much food as possible under
low light conditions. But, they're
easily damaged by too much di-
recL sunlight.
For low or medium light
areas, you need plants with
shade leaves. But, some nursery
plants grown outdoors in full
sun, or in brightly lighted green-
houses, have sun leaves. So, un-
less the house plants you buy
have been acclimatized for indoor
growing conditions, you can ex-
pect trouble. Acclimatization in-
volves moving plants gradually
from high light to low light loca-
tions, or the reverse. This process
may take several months.
Plants with sun leaves have a
high respiration rate; that is, they
use a lot of food. That's fine for
sun-leaved plants growing in di-
rect sunlight. Under high light,
their rate of photosynthesis, the
process of food production, usu-
ally exceeds their rate of respira-
tion or food consumption. Unfor-
tunately, the reverse is true when
plants with sun leaves are moved
to shaded indoor locations.
Indoors, their rate of food use
remains high for many weeks,
while their rate of food production
declines. Under low light condi-
tions, sun leaves make less food
than the plants need. To compen-
sate, they must consume stored


food. The plants-actually feed on
themselves. And, unless the rates
of photosynthesis and respiration
are brought into balance, such
plants may die.
On the other hand, if a plant
with shade leaves is moved into
full sun for even a short period, it
will be severely injured by cell
death resulting from high light. In
either case, gradual acclimatiza-
tion is the answer.

Of course, you may want to
move plants from one location
without waiting for acclimatiza-
tion. So, we'll offer some exam-
ples of changes that will and will
not work. You can move a plant
from fluorescent light to an east
window, where it doesn't get di-
rect sun. But, you can't move a
plant from a sunny patio to a lo-
cation under fluorescent lights.
You can move a plant from a
south window to a terrace, where
it 'gets early morning sun, or par-
'tial shade all day. But, you can't
move a plant from a north win-
dow to the same terrace. Or, you
can move a plant from a shady
terrace to an indoor spot near an
east or south window. But, you
can't move a plant from an east
window to a sunny terrace.
While this may sound a bit
confusing, it should emphasize
the point that care must be exer-
cised in moving plants from one
lght condition to another. Before
you transfer any of your prized
plants from sun to shade or
the reverse you would be wise
to seek expert advise from your
local garden center or nursery
concerning such moves, and any
acclimatization required to insure
success.

*Best bet for a used car is to
buy from a reputable dealer.
Otherwise, be cautious. Com-
pare Vehicle Identification
Number with title. You should
get at least one set of original
keys. Watch out for a fresh
paint job that may indicate acci-
dent repair or a stolen carl
*Sniffle season avoid driving
after taking cold medications.
They can make you groggy.
*Stuck In a storm? It's wise to
stay In the car, especially In an
unfamiliar area. Dig out the ex-
haust system to prevent carbon
monoxide buildup. Keep the
motor running and heat on; tie
a "flag" to the antenna.
*Older drivers have fewer acci-
dents per driver than younger
ones but they have MORE
accidents per mile driven, and
the accidents are more likely to
be serious ones.
*Get maximum protection from
your car's airbag by wearing the
seat belt, too. Airbags alone
cut accident fatalities by 20 to
45 percent; adding the lap and

percent.
