County Accepts Decision of Special Master


Union Contract Goes to Commission and County Workers for Ratification andAdoption


Gulf County and the Interna-
tional Union of Operating Engi-
neers have agreed to contract lan-
guage after nearly two years of
negotiating. The last items of dis-
agreement, rules governing annu-
al leave, sick leave and pay for
operators of two specialized piec-
es of equipment the County uses
sporadically were in the hands of
a special master, with the final
decision being turned over to the
County and the union negotiators
a week ago.
Wallace Brannon, represent-


ing the union, and Larry Wells,
representing the County, gave
their reports to the County Com-
mission Tuesday night, with
Wells saying he had filed objec-
tions to the special master's rul-
ing ar}d Brannon arguing in favor
of acceptance. Wells said it had
been the Board's position not to
offer sick leave and not to carry
over annual leave time.
When both men had present-
ed their cases, the Commission
accepted a compromise of provid-
ing a half day sick leave a month,


Gulf County fulfilled the, last of its promises to the state pris-
on installation now located north of Wewahitchka in the Stone
Mill Creek area, last week, with the construction of a small
bridge across a creek at the entrance to the prison property.
The County was obligated to put in a bridge or large culvert
at the creek crossing to replace an old rickety wooden span.
With the paving of the road, recently, it was time to get the con-
struction of the bridge started and the County originally agreed.
to go with large culverts.
Original design of the three box culverts and engineering was
going to cost Gulf County some $92,000, which caused the Com-
mission to look for ways to cut costs. Preble-Rish Engineers then
came up with a novel idea of using old railroad flat car frames


"This negotiation has dragged on
for 19 months arl that's too long to
be negotiating. You can be assured
the next contract won't take 19


months


to complete."


but not allowing sick leave or an-
nual leave accumulation.


- Brannon


Brannon argued that sick
leave had been furnished County


as bridge spans, to save money.
The flat cars are modified by a firm, to be used as string
for small bridges, and three of the units, measuring 68 fee
length, were shipped into Gulf County for the application.
Total cost, $56,000. The County had saved $36,000 on tU
lowest estimate for a conventional installation.
Ralph Rish, partner of Preble-Rish and manager of the P
St. Joe office, said, 'This is the first bridge designed in the si
of Florida to utilize these modified flat cars; possibly even in
southeastern United States."
The bridge construction, which began last week, with the
car spans put in place Thursday, is scheduled to be complex
by Friday of this week. Fisher Construction Company is the c
tractor on the job.


employees for 28 years.
Wells acknowledged that
such had been the case, but said,
'We have had flagrant misuse of
that particular benefit over the
years."
Brannon suggested that the
union would help the County in
enforcing the policy set out by
sick leave rules in order to dis-
courage abuse. 'We need to prop-
erly police the benefit from the
outset," Brannon said.
The next step toward a work-
ing agreement between County
employees, represented by the
"union and Gulf County, is to
present the contract to the work-
ers and the Commission for their
inspection and official approval.
Brannon remarked that the
negotiations had "taken too long,"
saying they had dragged on for 19
months. 'You can be assured the
next contract won't take 19
months to complete," he re-
marked.


911 GRANT APPROVED
Administrative Assistant Lar-
ry Wells advised the Board Tues-
day night, that a grant in the
amount of $81,500 had been ap-
proved by the State of Florida for,
Gulf County to be used in instal-
lation of its 911 emergency phone
system.
Wells said, "It's a 25% match,
but we have the money in the 911
fund to make the match."
Wells said the grant would go
a long way toward purchase of
the necessary equipment and in-
stallation of the system through-
out the County. Wells said the
911 committee has estimated it
will cost some $200,000 to put in
the finest system available.-
"That's our goal," Wells said.
The County official said, '"We
.have an application in for a sec-
ond grant"
Currently telephone subscrib-
ers are paying 50t a month on
their phone bill to build up a
fund for -the system and pay for
its operation.
n a COUNTY ATTORNEY
The County Commission has
received two "bids" from attorneys
who wish to serve as County At-
torney for the next two years. But
Tuesday night, the time for open-
ing of the bids, the Board came
up with a list of things they ex-
es pected from their County. Attor-
ney, after the fact.
Chairman Nathan Peters had
gers named a committee to promul-
t in gate a job description for Gulfs
attorney and present it to the
heir Board. Charles Tharpe, one of the,
committee members, presented
Port the results of the committee
tate meetings Tuesday night, saying,
tate "I think this is good. The County
the should have had something like
this a long time ago." The other
rail committee members were Larry
ted Wells arid Wayne Childers.
,on- Chairman Peters wanted the
Board- to take the document and


study it and .come back Wednes-
' day evening at a 4:30 p.m., spe-
cial meeting to take the matter
up.
Board member Billy Traylor
wanted to go ahead and consider
the attorney proposals before
them that night, saying, "We
asked for the proposals to be
opened today. Work rules we may
or may not adopt will apply to the
individual, whoever we may hire."
Commissioner Yeager said, "It
seems to me we have done this
thing all wrong, anyhow. We
should have considered who we
wanted for our attorney at the be-
ginning of the fiscal year. not in
the middle of a year. We should
also have provided the work rules
before we called for proposals
from individual attorneys, so they
would know what is expected of
them. It seems to me, we're get-
ting the cart before the horse."
The second saga of this sub-
ject will occur Wednesday eve-
ning.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other items of business be-
fore the Board, it took under con-
sideration:
-A report by Marsha Hop-
kins, representative of Apalachee
Planning Region of an "affordable
housing grant" in the amount of
$250,000 for 1993, and asked for
a ratification of a contract for the
County to receive the grant. 'Ap-
proval was given on an unani-
mous vote.
-Signed an agreement with
Michael Tucker for property on
St. Joseph Peninsula to be used
as an exit point from the beaches
in the Cape San Bias area.
-Agreed to make drug test-
ing of county employees a neces-
sity and agreed to investigate oth-
er counties' methods of giving the
tests before deciding on a-11fethod
for Gulf.

Construction Takes A Modest Hike In '92 Following A Surge In '91

Permits Valued At $4.9 Million Written for New i:
Construction During Year; Mobile Homes Popular


Building of all types took a modest spurt
upward in Gulf County during 1992, accord-
ing to Building Department Supervisor, Don
Butler. Overall, the new construction reflected
an eight percent increase, with remodeling of
present homes furnishing the largest single
increase.
New home permits fell from last year's to-
tal, dropping from 88 in 1991 to only 55 in
'92. Other construction took up the slack and
fueled the increase as 118 homeowners took
out permits to either repair or improve their
present homes.
A total of 173 building permits were is-
sued in the County during 1992; one more
than 1991. The year 1991 had seen a hefty in-
crease in home building as building showed a
28% increase over the year of 1990.
Gulf County's Building Department took
in a total of $56,035.77 in permit fees during
the year. The previous year, even though more
permits were issued, the service realized only
$39,678.11 in revenue.
Permits for new buildings totaled a value
of $4,912,161. Improvement permits were
next with a value set at $620,455.
The most permits issued by the Depart-
ment were for such things as electric meter
change-outs, plumbing, mechanical and mo-


bile home permits.
There were 135 permits issued for mobile
homes, testifying to the increased use of the
manufactured housing by Gulf County citi-
zens.
There were 555 permits issued for all but
new construction and mobile homes. Total es-
timated value of all construction or repairs,
requiring a permit during 1992, was
$5,532,616. In fiscal 1991, a value of
$4,601,021 was placed on new buildings con-
structed and permitted. total value of all con-
struction for that year was $4,990,492.
Butler emphasized that permits are need-
ed for all building projects, upgrading electric
services, plumbing installations, mechanical
work, where electrical services are needed,
etc. The permits also provide the owner with
an inspection of the work done, to make sure
it is done in the proper manner and meets the
letter of the building code.
Maintaining a Building Department is re-
quired of the County by the state of Florida, to
enforce the Standard Building Code, which
sets the standards in Gulf County.
Gulf County's Building Department is
made up of the director, a part time inspector
and a secretary.


Construction, such as this remodeling according to the Gulf County Building De-
job in Port St. Joe, showed an eight per- apartment. Fifty-five new homes were built
cent increase in Gulf County during 1992, in the County in 1992.

Transition

By this time next week, Bill Clinton will be installed as the
president of the United ..it,---. He will be the man in charge. for
better or for worse. As Harry Truman would say, "the bhir k will
.liJp here." Ruth candidates. Republican and cimoirr.-illr were
pritne to quote Harry Triinin aquile often during the campaign
and seemed eager to niiinuli- the plain-spoken head of state of
the late -I) *- and early 50's. '
Thi-v could do worse. 'Ilhey could be trying to pattern their
actions after'llihii.i-, Dewey.
The l'rTsid-nu v Is iutli enough during normal times, but in
these days, It aipplan; as if we will never experience "normal"
times ag.it, So the President, whoever he [or shell ,niglt be, has
to be ltougli He must make some hard decisions and have the
patience and the stamina to explain his actions,
We failed to mark our ballot for Mr. ('lirttoi. We lhuocstly I':It
the i1-iun'im'i was gra:duiallv getting better and we Could thank
Mr. Bush for tihat. as much as we could any President, Largely,
thel Aimirilaii people were responsible for the improved economic
-Iiniatlonr. 'hliat was the one point where (.lintui and Bush
seemed to be opplsinrg one another. One had one solution and
the other dllirn'l. but he felt he had a solutionjust the same.
Mr. Clinton will, from now on, for the next four years, at
least, live in a glass house. He will have people inspect and ana-
lvi/ .vryihiig he does, from him-Jilng his teeth to breaking a
shoelace while Irying to tie his shoes. Some enterprising mem-
bers of the .o-r.cill.d "media" would even follow him to the bath-
room, but even theNy know that Americans would not stand for
that much invasion of privacy.
The man faces horrendous problems to attempt a solution
for. We can imnagiiin how dililitil this will be for someone who
has had 12 years of familiarity with the situation. It will proba-
bly be doubly difficult for someone new on the job.
He is to be commended for Irvying to give every facet of our
populalt ion a hand in our government, by cabinet selections. We
hope his attempt at being fair doesn't stand in the way of select-
ing the best man or woman for the job. If it does, he has stepped
forward on the wrong foot and will spend his entire term living it
down,
Even though we didn't vote for Bill Clinton, we wish him well
and offer our encouragcentl, for whatever support that gives.
There's a selfish motif In that desire, if Mr. Clinton does well in
his new job, we all will do well.


" Hang 'Em High
It was with interest we read last week of the young man in
the State of Washington, convicted of a terrible murder, choos-
ing to be hanged by the neck until dead. Do-gooders from all
over the nation hung their mouth open. aghast at the state for
granting his wish. Hanging is thought to be a horrible way to
die. We have never been hanged so it would be impossible to ver-
ify or deny from experience. On the surface, though, it looks like
a method of death one could dread.
We quit hanging people in the United States sometime dur-
Ing the first half of this century, due to its gory appearance, we
think, more than due to its being a method of cruel and unusual
I Punishment. If our memory serves us correctly, we believe the
last hanging in this area took place in Marianna around 1920. It
was a public affair, with the entire countryside turning out to
witness the spectacle.
Horse thieves were hung in the Old West, as well as cattle
i rustlers, murderers, and other despicable persons. It was an ex-
ecution to be feared by the victim. It probably deterred many a
fellow who had a yen to take a horse which didn't belong to him
Sor a couple of cows which carried someone's brand other than
his.
We'd like to see hanging as an alternative method of execu-
tion today. It would probably do as much as anything to curb
the senseless killings, the brutal car Jackings, the highway snip-
Sing, the looting and other acts of senseless violence. Hanging
; eems no more brutal than an electric chair. With the chair, the
# nute the switch is thrown a person is dead. With hanging, the
, minute the trap door is sprung, a person's neck is broken and
he is dead.
:In "civilized" England, during the days of the kings, they
chopped off their heads in executions.
Hanging is more visibly gruesome than an electric chair, but
not so much as head chopping. As long as we must have a death
penalty-and we feel we should-we should get some of the side
benefits out of the execution method, rather than just another
Means to snuff out, a criminal's life. The psychological factor,
here, does about as much good for society as the actual act it-
self.


I Hunker Down with Kes

Having an older brotht-r

who miiadt- lIl.s. of mistakes helped
even more. Let me il ih.lr.ihr this
for you, In the mid-to-early 50's,
Daddy would send Leon down to
the store for a pack of Camel's.
Cigarettes at the time were selling
for 15 cents a pack. He'd give


Leon


-- A Guy Slightly


Ahead of His Time...


1j:for, quarter. Now this wasn't
too dilfri ult Leon was exper:I.erd 1to
reliirn with one pack of un-
crushed, unopened Camel.- and
10 U c-nts In r.hange. L-on would
breeze in, hand Daddy the cigar-
ettes, say, 'You know it's getting
a mite cold outside," and ease on
into his bedroom. He'd forget the
dime. Every time. h
My Dad would go to grum-
bling to Mother about how you're
suppose to get back with the
goods and any change that might
be left over. "If the boy does right,


he comes in with my cigarettes in
one hand and vy c change in the
other."
"Well. Lonnie, he's young."
My Mother made a career out of
taking up for Leon.
'Young ain't got nothing to do
with itl" Dad's voice would raise a
little. "He's got to understand that
it's not his money. He's got to ac-
count for It. What is this younger
generation coming to? If we don't
teach BIM,1, come in here a
minute!" Dad is pretty riled up by


now. "Son. didn't you forget
something?" Leon would pull the
dime out of the right front pocket
of those Tuf Nut jeans and hand
It to Daddy.
Three days later the whole
scene would play out again. And
on Friday night with Dad out of
Camels they'd go through the rit-
ual one more time.
I finally asked Leon why he
just didn't give the dime back
when he came in. 'You know that
thing about 'I'd Walk A Mile For A
Camel', how far you figure it is to
the store?"
"I dunno. A mile I guess."
"It's more like a mile and a
half. I'm walking three miles for
his Camels. I ought to at least get
a measly dime out of it."
You know Leon could make
sense every once In a while.....
"Besides, I keep figuring I'm
going to come in one day and he's
going to plum forget about that
dime."
..but not very often.
Leon graduated on to the
high school and driving the trac-
tor and studying Diane what's-
her-name and I moved up to
chief-run-to-the-store-person.
S Hey, I didn't ride in on a cab-
bage truck. First time Dad sends
me to the store, I'm back in a
flash. Ive got the Camels In my
left hand and his dime in my
right.
'You keep the change, son."
What?
The next night they sent me
after some Old Dutch Cleanser.
You remember that stuff? It had
that lady on the can with the blue
dress and the big white hat
"chasing dirt" with a stick in her
hand. It cost 9 cents. I handed
the cleanser to Mom and pulled
the penny out and started to-
ward-
"Keep it, son."
Leon had been hadl I almost
felt sorry for him.
My favorite thing to "go for"
was Octagon Soap. That stuff was
cheap. For 4 cents you could get
a half a dozeri bars. 10 cents
worth was more than I could car-
ry. The perfect scenario was Dad
only having a quarter and Mother
needing Octagon Soap. I made
some money on that one!
I asked Mother once why Dad
made such a big deal over getting
his change back and then not
taking it when it was offered.
"Son, that's your Dad's way of
teaching you to be responsible.
He never cared about the money.
But he did care that you boys un-
derstood it wasn't your money
until it was given to you. Some-
day, when you're a father, you
will understand."
Shucks, I thought it was be-
cause he liked me better than
Leon.
In health class in high school
a few years later, we were doing
that unit on family life. You re-
member the one. Mrs. Jackson
made us do a paper on what we'd
- do if we were the parents how
would we raise "jur children?"

I Pass On Making New Year's Resolutions Just to Break Them


: DID YOU MAKE a New Year's
resolution? I didn't and I don't
. feel the worse for it. In the first
:. place, I probably wouldn't keep it
fif I made one, and so I just avoid-
.ed the middle man by not doing
',-so.
Oh, I'll try to do this and I'll
,try to do that, but experience has
'shown that if I could control any-
:,thing which happens to be my
:natural inclination of doing cer-
.tain things, making a resolution
,isn't going to persuade me to do
differently.
That doesn't mean I won't
.stop trying to improve my deport-
7iment during 1993. Of course, I
will. But, just don't expect mira-
cles. Don't expect an old dog to
adopt a new repertoire of tricks
and I'm definitely enjoying being
an old dog. It sort of makes you
,exempt from making New Year
-,resolutions.
; New years can come and new
,years can go without eliciting too
.much attention from us old gee-


zers. It's sort of like diplomatic
immunity. Too, there's not much
devilment we can get into, consid-
ering our doddering gait and our
state of mentality. The new year
can't do much to us that hasn't
already been done.
TAKE THAT YOUNG whip-
per-snapper, Kesley Colbert, who
made some tongue in cheek re-
marks recently about my wonder-
ful memory. I could resolve to
take a memory course during the
new year, so events of yesterday
or earlier today won't slip my
mind, but he could use one of
those courses too.


Old Kesley doesn't tell you he
remembers who played what posi-
tion on the 1948 Boston Red Sox
and their batting averages. He
doesn't tell you that he remem-
bers when Sal "the Barber" Ma-
glie gave up five hits to the New
York Yankees, back in the 1955
World Series, but still lost the
game to Don Larsen's only perfect
game ever pitched in a World Se-
ries. Larsen never pitched a per-
fect game after that and had been
only a pretty good pitcher in the
seasons prior to that game.
I remember it, because it was
one of the first baseball games I
ever saw on TV.


Does that make you as old as
I am, Kes?
But, a word to the wise: don't
ever test old Kes' memory on any
kind of trivia. He has a memory
like a herd of elephants and I
confess I do not. If everything he
has committed to memory were
written on a postage stamp and
stuffed in his head, it would be as
big as a large pizza. and corn
tain more bologna
BUT, I DIGRESS from the
subject at hand, which was
what? I forgot!
Making resolutions doesn't
seem to be as popular as it once
was. Back a few years ago, a per-
son didn't dare let the first day of
the year catch him with no new
resolutions made. The first reso-
lution broken would be the one
made to keep all the new ones
made in a matter of haste.
But if I were to make some,
what would they be?
I could resolve to shed the six


pounds I gained during the
Christmas holidays, and I have
every intention of doing so, but if
I don't resolve to do it, I won't be
held accountable if I don't. If I do,
I can brag about my will power.
I could resolve to wash my
car every week .and keep it nice
and clean. If it rains, or snows, or
turns cold, or the weather gets
too good to waste washing cars,
or the cat gets sick, or the dog
barks, or any of those good ex-
cuses not to, presents itself, that
resolution would be broken.
I can do like Wendell Camp-
bell and just change the name on
my column to gain a few new
readers who think they are read-
ing something different. But I've
kept this name too long to change
now.
Frenchie would appreciate it
if I were to resolve to quit leaving
my dirty underwear in the show-
er. But, then I would never get
any attention from her. Like It is,
she notices at least that I am


around.
I suppose there are any num-
ber of things I could say I was re-
solving to do, but I would only
wind up breaking the resolve.
BUT, YOU GO ahead and
make your resolutions. I don't
suppose it is too late. I have never
read any laws or rules which gov-
ern New Year resolutions, so I
don't think there is any special
rules of protocol about when and
how to make them.
Let me know how you come
out with yours. It might be inter-
esting for both my readers to
know if there is really somebody
out there who can make a resolu-
tion and actually keep it! That
would take some doing.
On second thought, you had
best not let me know. The type
person who reads this column
wouldn't understand there are
people out there who actually
won't fib about their age their
weight... or their relatives!

Why Is It That...
...People continue to offer their opinions on various subjects
when we know that they are wrong? Why can't they be reasonable
and see things our way? -
...When you're in a rush, you either can't find your car keys or
you can't get the proper key to fit the lock on the door or the igni-
tion?
...Mostfleaking faucets won't stop leaking all by themselves?
..Most of us will sit in a chair a lifetime, with mouth wide open,
waiting for a fried chicken to fly in when, deep down, we know it
will never happen?
...No one has ever come up with an answer to where all the
weight goes that people lose? I've never seen a bunch of "lost-
weight" laying around. Have you?
...People continue to speed past me on an open road and when
they get around me they slow down to a speed slower than I was go-
ing to start with? It happens to me all the time.
...Some people try to impress other drivers by reading a book
while driving down the road? What they are really doing, in my
opinion, is showing us just how big an idiot they really are.
...I never realize there is no toilet tissue until I need it?
...I have never run out of toothpaste completely? No matter how
depleted the tube is, I have always been able to get one more brush-
ing out of it.
...Monday is almost always the most depressing day of the week
for most people? Are we all inherently lazy, or should we just call
Monday a 'holiday and go on to Tuesday? Would Tuesday be just as
bad as Monday? I think sol
...People continue to get married when the odds for success are
just about the same as winning the lottery?
...People continue to do the same old things when they know
they are in a high-risk category for catching AIDS? They still want
to dance, but they don't want to pay the fiddler
...Advice is free, yet most people never take It?
...Most of us know what's best for other people, but we can't
solve our own problems? I can even tell President Bush what he
should do in any given situation
...You never have as much gas in your vehicle as you thought
you had when there are teenagers around?
...Most retired people say they are living on a "fixed income"
when most of us are doing the same thing? Mine has been fixed all
my working life: Fixed way below what I need!
...Even contented cows will kick the bucket from time to time?

Johnny Bryant. He died as a re-
sult of the burns in a Mobile, Ala-

iffs records show that he tossed
gasoline on his brother, in his
home at Stone Mill Creek, and set
him afire. The Sheriffs Depart-
ment originally charged him with
first degree murder, first degree
arson and three counts of at-
tempted mtirder. 'The attehipted
muitirder' charges' 'stemimijied ffbm
tfih fact that' 'the "wife of 'iofnniy
Bryant and his two children were
in the room where the altercation
occurred.
Bryant's attorneys pleaded
for mercy because, "He has not
even had so much as a speeding
ticket."
Assistant State Attorney Fred
Attorney .reduced Bryant's origi-
nal charge because he said there
wasn't sufficient evidence to get a
first degree conviction, He sought
the maximum penalty for the sec-
ond degree charge. ,

Thank You!
To: Our Friends and Relatives
In Port St. Joe
Dear Neighbors,
As a new year begins, it is
time for me to look back over the
last year and remember the many
events that took place. However,
since I live in south Dade County
(Cutler Ridge), it is easy to re-
member the most tragic event of
1992. On August 24, I was on
duty and saw first hand what the
power of GOD and nature can do
to the hopes and dreams of men
in a very short time. Since I was
assigned to Miami, by the Florida
Highway Patrol in 1982, I have
seen the worst things many can
do to himself, but nothing I have
ever seen compares to what hap-
pened that morning.
When I returned home that
morning, I experienced what most
people felt, a feeling of helpless-
ness and hopelessness. That feel-
ing did not last too long. When
the people of Port St. Joe, heard
that my mother, Ms. Irene Addi-
son, was going to Miami to take
supplies to her children, everyone
wanted to help. This is not sur-


prising to me because I know the
people of my hometown are the
most loving and giving of all. Your
outpouring of love was so great
that my mother had to rent a van
to transport it all. You have no
idea how much you helped us
and our neighbors in south Dade,
in those very stressful days fol-
lowing Hurricane Andrew. And
so, from my brother, Sgt. Edgar
L. Addison of Homestead AFB, my
sister, Janice Addison of Cutler
Ridge, all of our neighbors and
myself, we would like to say
thank you so very much and may
GOD bless and keep you through-
out the coming years.
Thank you,
Raymond E. Addison

Year in '92
The Mexico Beach Chamber
of Commerce has had a busy year
during 1992 according to Faye
Koebrugge, Incoming president.
During the past year the
Chamber has been cooperating
with other chambers in northwest
Florida to develop a brochure
depicting the area from Mexico
Beach to Carrabelle. This area
which includes Port St. Joe, Apa-
lachicola, St. George Island and
Wakulla, has been dubbed "The
Forgotten Coast. The cost of the
brochures is being borne by a
grant from the State of Florida,
with a $500 contribution from the
Joint Chambers involved. When
the printing is completed, area
businesses will be furnished with
the brochure.
New officers in addition to
Koebrugge are: Vice-President
Sherrie McDowell; Treasurer Joy
Hawkins and Secretary Susie
Hudson. Chamber members are
reminded that now is the time to
renew your dues. Business mem-
berships are $50.00 and asso-
ciates are $12.50, both per
annum. All businesses in Mexico
Beach are encouraged to partici-
pate in the Chamber because it
promotes the interests of the
area.

Acne-

.N .A Teen's Nightmare
'. -\ ,. By
Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

Teens are usually .very concerned about their bodies and the
changes that go on during the developing years. No concern is
greater than what happens to their faces. This concern has trans-
lated into fortunes for many drug companies.
Acne is caused by the effects of androgynous (hormones) in de-.
veloping adolescents and during different stages of hormonal circu-
lation. Basic care for the teenaged face involves thorough cleansing
of the face at least two times a day. The cleaning should be done'
with a mild soap and cloth. After the face has been thoroughly
soaped and mildly abraded with the washcloth, rinse the soap off
with warm water and end with a splash of cold water. Often this
simple cleansing twice a day is all that is needed to keep the skin:
relatively oil and pimple free.
In the past much has been said and written about the impor-
tance of diet and avoiding things like carbonated beverages, fried,
foods, and chocolate. While it is important to maintain a generally
good diet, in the interest of good health, research has been unable
to confirm that diet has any effect on adolescent acne.
Probably the most effective treatment applied to the skin is a
product called benzoyl peroxide. There are various trade names of;
the product, but one of the most recognizable is Oxy 5 and Oxy 10.
Most teens will find that careful cleaning and regular use of Oxy 5.
will be all they need to keep their skin in good condition. A few'
young people will need to move on to Oxy 10 for the desired results.
There are patients with the more severe forms of acne that need
very specialized skin care. This care may involve very potent medi-
cines that should be used under rigid supervision.
Even the severe form of cystic acne has been responsive to the
new potent treatments. Controlled consistent care can prevent
many of the disfiguring results previously seen in severe acne and,
dermabrasion can erase some of the persistent residuals.

Six students from Port St.
Joe Jr.-Sr. High School qualified
for, and four participated in, this
year's Talent Search for mathe-
matically and verbally' advanced
students, sponsored by Duke
University's Talent Identification
Program (TIP). The program iden-
tifiles highly able seventh graders
from a 16-state region in the
south, southwest and midwest.
To be eligible, students must
have scored at the 97th percentile
or better on a nationally normed
achievement, aptitude, or mental
ability test battery. The five par-
ticipants sat for the American
College Test (ACT), normally tak-
en by college-bound Juniors and
seniors, on December 12. Many
of these students score as well as,
or better than, the average col-
lege-bound senior on this meas-
ure. All participants receive Cer-
tificates of Merit, and some
become eligible for state-wide or
regional recognition ceremonies,
or a variety of educational pro-
grams.
TIP, established in 1980, has
provided thousands of students
with information about their abili-
ties and educational options. The
purposes of the program are to
help academically bright students

Sharks Unbeaten Since Holidays


O11ougars
Wildlife researchers are pre-
paring to release 12 cougars into
the wild near the Osceola Nation-
al Forest by late February or early
March. This will be the second
phase of the experimental cougar
(also known as mountain lion) re-
leases here to develop the tech-
nology for eventual reintroduction
of Florida panthers into the area.
Tom Logan, head of wildlife
research for the Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission, said this
phase of the experiment will em-
ploy information gathered during
the first phase in 1988-89.
"For instance, we learned
that younger animals tend to set
up territories more quickly than
older cats do, so we will be releas-
ing younger animals this time,"
Logan said.
Also, the initial release in-
volved five animals; this phase
will involve 12. With the limited
number of cats in the 1988-89
experiment, the deaths of three of
the cats caused the animals' so-
cial and territorial structure to
break down. Logan said the larger
number of animals in this phase
of the experiment should lend it-
self to great stability.
'The first phase of the experi-

the game to defeat Quincy
Shanks, 80-71 last Saturday
night, in the Coliseum.
Arion Nickson poured 30
points through the nets in the
winning effort including nine

of the game to pad the Shark
lead.
The Sharks were behind, 51-
48 at half-time, but took a one
point lead for the last time with
four minutes left on Jason Max-
well's three-pointer. Maxwell had
two 3-pointers, Joe Price and
Nickson each had one.
Toby Thomas added 18
points and Joe Price had 14.
The Sharks scored on 22 of
33 free throw opportunities while
the Tigers converted 14 of 19.

ment was invaluable in that it
made us aware of factors we can
utilize in the second phase and
eventually, we hope, in the rein-
troduction of Florida panthers,"
Logan said.
Three of the cats to be used
during this phase of the experi-
ment were born, reared and con-
ditioned in captivity at White Oak
Plantation a facility owned by
Gilman Paper Co. and dedicated
to preservation of endangered
species.
'This is our first opportunity
to test our ability to produce cats
in captivity and condition them to
survive in the wild," Logan said.
"By the time this phase of the ex-
periment concludes, we should
have a much better grasp of
whether it is feasible to produce
Florida panthers in captivity and
release them into the wild."
Scientists decided to test
their techniques using non-
endangered cougars before at-
tempting to release endangered
Florida panthers. This use of sur-
rogate animals for testing is a
common practice in endangered
species research.

On the night of June 4, the
first Loggerhead Sea Turtle nest
was laid on Cape San Blas. Be-
fore the last nest on August 19,
there would be 147 others be-
tween Indian Pass and Tyndall
Air Force Base; a phenomenal
record. Two of these nests were
by a Green Turtle,, a rare visitor
to Panhandle shores; they prefer
the Caribbean and South Florida.
But it wasn't all good news
though. Before the sun rose on
47 nests, they would be destroyed
by coyotes, a formidable predator,
which came into this area within.
the last 10 years. He is the main
reason the turtle volunteers are
on the beach so often to fence the
nests before they are dug the fol-
lowing night. The coyotes got 32%
of all nests laid; mainly between
the lighthouse and St. Joseph
Point.
Then, some Unusually high
tides drowned many nests. In Au-
gust, Hurricane Andrew's swells
washed away some more. Finally
in September, a non-tropical low
in the Gulf came ashore and did
more damage than the.hurricane.
These two storms washed away

33 nests.
After nature's checks and
balances, there were 69 nests
that were still in place, but many
of these had been covered by
storm tides and flooded by heavy
rains. In these nests, the group
was able to count 6,438 eggs, but
3,666 of these eggs didn't hatch.
To the best of the group's knowl-
edge 2,772, or 19% of all eggs
laid hatched and baby turtles
swam into the Gulf this last sum-
mer. In about 20 years, 28, or 1%
will crawl up the same beach they
were born upon to lay.

their old rivals, Blountstown, and
sent them home with a 73-62
licking, in a District game.

each while Toby Thomas tipped
in 16. Maxwell had four 3-
pointers, Damon Walker chipped
in three, Joe Price hit two and
Nickson added one.
Matt Speights led the Tiger

The Sharks -were behind
three points after the end of the
first quarter, but came roaring

The Sharks were in the hole
by six points to the Marianna
Bulldogs Tuesday night, before
the Sharks buckled down and did
what they had to do to win.
The Bulldogs concentrated on
defense as they held the Sharks
to only three free throws and only


two three pointers; the backbone
of their usual devastating attack.
The Sharks still put together
an offense which resulted in their
fourth straight victory since the
holiday break.
Des Baxter and Arion Nick-
son each scored 15 points in the
winning effort and Reggie Jones
added 12, as Port St. Joe won
their tenth game of the season.
Two of their four losses came dur-

when they lost to Rutherford.

News...
By Linda Whitfield


"Well, I thought I taught it!"
A friend of mine. Marcia
Deck. from back home In Tennes-
see, told me this story during
Christmas and I thought I'd share
it. All of us have had similar ex-
periences. Marcia, like me, teach-
es third grade: She had taught a
week long unit on Livingston's
new sewer and water treatment
plant. After the week long in-
struction, she took her class on a
mini-field trip to let them see the
sewer plait. After they got off the
bus and was walking on the'
grounds, a little boy came run-
ning. up, saying, "Miss Deck, is
this one of them sewer plants you
wuz telling us about?" He. was
holding a weedl
Wewa Elementary Science Fair

Science teacher Joe Walker

Like, last year, only the sixth

grades will get to view the exhib-
its. We would like to invite the
public to come see our budding,
scientists. It will be open Febru-
ary 2-4 from 3:00 6:00.

ried to Misty Harper who teaches

During his free time. Randy likes

family. His hobbies include hunt-
ing, fishing, and metal detecting.
Randy has this to say about stu-
dent teaching and his future pro-
fession, "I1 am thoroughly enjoying
working with Mrs. Linda Whitfleld
and her third grade classroom
and anticipate gaining valuable
teacher experience. I enjoy work-'
ing with children very much and
look forward toward entering the
teaching profession with a posi-
tive and eager- outlook." We will
indeed be lucky to get someone of
'Mr. Harper's talents. Welcome
aboard!
Student of the Week
Steven Ake. the son of Lyle

this week. Steven is in the sixth
grade and claims science as his
favorite subject In school. When
he grows up, Steven would like to
work on septic tanks like his dad.
He also admires his dad and
mom very much. His favorite
song, "I'm In A Hurry", is by Ala-
bama. Steven would like to go to
Colorado and hunt. I should men-
tion that Steven killed an eight-

Increased Medicare

Benefits Available at


Wewa Medical Center
Medicare is now paying for a broad range of preventive services-
provided you receive them at one of the approximately 75 health care
centers throughout Florida that meet U.S. Public Health Service require-
ments.
'The services include physical, screening and diagnostic tests for vi-
sion, hearing, cholesterol and blood pressure; immunizations for Influen-
za and pneumonia; and screening Pap smear tests (at centers certified to
conduct such tests). The Part B annual deductible is not required if you
receive these services at one of the approved centers.
The Wewahitchka Medical Center and the other centers of North
Florida Medical Centers, Inc. are the only approved Florida centers west
of Tallahassee. Jim McKnight, C.E.O. of North Florida Medical Centers,
Inc. stated, '"We are proud to be one of these special centers with en-
hanced benefits for Medicare patients." McKnight pointed out that the
$100.00 annual deductible does not apply to service offered by their cen-
ters, with the exception of x-ray services. A patient using the centers ex-
clusively that does not require x-ray services would not pay the $100.00
annual deductible. However, should they receive services from another
physician or medical facility, they would be responsible for meeting the
annual deductible.
'We are particularly pleased with the expansion of covered services to
include preventive services and screenings," continued McKnight. "In the
past, and currently at other providers, an annual physical was not a cov-
ered Medicare service. It is our hope that this enhanced coverage of pre-
ventive services will encourage Medicare patients to keep their health
maintenance up to date," concluded McKnight.
For more information regarding the enhanced Medicare coverage, call
the Wewahitchka Medical Center at (904) 639-5828.

Doing It Right Helps Transplanted Trees


Maybe there's a tree on one
part of your property that you
want to move to another location.
Perhaps a neighbor has offered
you a tree that will improve your
landscape. You may want to ob-
tain a new species from a nur-
sery, or the wild. If so, it's time to
become familiar-with the do's and
don't's of tree transplanting by
following proper methods you can
help insure the survival of the
tree you're moving.
Transplanting can be quite a
shock to trees. If they don't re-
ceive proper care and handling
throughout the operation, .they'll
probably die. In this article I will,
talk about some general rules to.
follow.when moving trees. My in-
formation was provided by Exten-
sion Urban Horticulturist Dr.
Robert Black, with the University.
of Florida.
Before we go into detail about'
transplanting trees, we need to
talk briefly about legal considera-
tions of taking trees from the

mortar and broken concrete
blocks.
A final consideration is root
pruning. This encourages devel-
opment of fibrous roots and mini-
mizes shock at planting time.
Early spring is usually the best
time for root pruning. Large trees
should be pruned at least one
growing season prior to moving.
And, some experts suggest ex-
tending pruning over two years -
pruning half the roots the first
year, half the second,, and moving
the tree the third.
To prune, cut through the
lateral roots with a sharp spade,
forming a circle around the tree
about 10 to 12 times its trunk di-
ameter. Make the cuts deep
enough to cut most of the lateral
roots. When it's time to trans-
plant, the cut roots will have
sprouted many feeder roots,
which will help the tree become
established in its new location.


wild. The State of Florida has a
native plant preservation law
which controls the destruction,
collection, and sale of various en-
dangered, threatened trees,
plants and shrubs. So, you need
to keep this law in mind, and fol-
low the legal procedures for ob-
taining endangered or threatened
,plants.
Although most trees can be
moved any time of year, different
tree families have optimum sea-
sons in which they should be
transplanted, fo insure quick ad-
aptation to their new environ-
ment. Deciduous trees seem to do
better if they're moved in fall,
winter or spring. Evergreens suf-
fer least when transplanted dur-
ing August and early September.
It's best to move palms during the
warm, rainy summer'months.
One tree moving problem -
especially during summer is
maintaining adequate moisture.
During transplanting, water loss
through the leaves can be quite
severe. So, you should apply an
anti-transparent a foliage
spray available from nurseries
and garden centers. This mini-
mizes moisture loss by blocking
leaf pores.
Most Florida trees grow best
when the soil pH is between 5.5
and 6. So, you may need to ad-
just the pH before transplanting -
while the tree is still in its origi-
nal location... not after it's been

dug up.
Another important trans-
planting factor is proper drain-
age. Poor drainage can adversely
affect a transplant. To test drain-
age, dig the planting hole in ad-
vance and fill it with water. If all
the water drains out in the first
18 to 24 hours, drainage is satis-
factory. Also, before you trans-
plant, check for underground
utility lines or pipes, and remove
all buried debris especially old
