Sloop Providence


Pirate Ship Replica


Docking Here Friday

For Purpose of Making Documentary,
Film for Discovery TV Channel
The Sloop Providence will be in Port St. Joe this
week end for the purpose of allowing people a glimpse
of an old sailing ship and for "The Discovery Channel"
to make a documentary taping of pirates who operated
in the Port St. Joe area many years ago.
Ship's master, Casey Fasceano, will sail the ship into
St. Joseph Bay Friday afternoon and it will dock at Raf-
field Fisheries. Visitors may board the Providence Sat-
urday and Sunday for an inspection tour.
Monday, filming will begin by the "Discovery Chan-
nel" cameramen, with local citizens being used as ex-,
tras in the filming. i"
Legend has it that several pirates operate in" and
out of St. Joseph Bay during..their heygyy.,oe. 4 eko
end of theire-i hIstfa a pirtie measure iwrIurtU
was buried, at Money Bayou. The filming will be explor-
ing those old legends and stories.
The Sloop is replica of a 1770's vessel, of the type
used by pirates of the era. The photo at the top of this
story is a painting of the Sloop, painted by Francis Hol-
man, as it attacked an English vessel in 1777.


SThe County Commission, on
a 4-1 vote Tuesday afternoon, will
have a committee examine the.
current method of electing its
Commissioners, to see if there is'
a better way to see that the peo-
ple are represented fairly.
All but Chairman Nathan Pe-
ters, Jr.. agreed to have a com-
mittee study the matter and
make recommendations to the
Commission concerning the mat-
ter.
Commissioner Billy Traylor
prodded the Board into taking ac-
tion, saying. "County-wide, the
people have gone on record of
supporting the need for a better
way of doing things by a 74% ma-
jority. in a referendum vote. They
don't feel the single member dis-
trict is representing their needs
adequately."
Commissioner Hammond
said, "If I were of a minority race.
I would say the white majority
has used the way of a referendum
to change the [single member dis-
trict] situation." Hammond later
voted to study the matter and.
search for a "better way of doing
things." i
Traylor was quick to rebt.t
Hammond,. saying. 'This Is no
white-black thing I'm talking
about The system Just doesn't;
work adequately. I would not be'
in favor of any system which'
would result in removing minority'
representation on this Bo.rd:,

"This is no white-black thing I'm talking about.
The system just doesn't work adequately. I would
not be in favor of any system which removed mi-
nority representation from this Board. "- Traylor


RESOLUTIONS
Chairman Peters introduced
three resolutions for considera-
tion by the Board, all of which
ended up being approved unani-
mously.
The most emotional of the
Resolutions was one objecting to
the actions of President Clinton
In.opening up the military for ho-
mosexuals.
The Commission was unani-
mously in favor of the Resolution
opposing the action, with copies
being sent to President Clinton,
the Speaker of the Senate and
Speaker of the House and to the
Congressional delegation repre-
senting this area.
( It was the expressed concen-
sus of the Board's opinion that
homosexuals did not belong in
the military.
Another Resolution, approved
unanimously with ,hardly any dis-
cussion, was a move to allow a
paid holiday for County employ-
ees on Martin Luther King's birth-
day., The national holiday has not
been observed by the County em-
; '* "! .' -


ployees in the past.
There was no discussion by
Board members at the time of in-
troduction of the Ordinance, but
later on, during"'consideration of
ratification of a union contract
with Road and Mosquito Depart-
ment members to make the holi-
day observance applicable to both
Courthouse offices and workers
outside the Courthouse.
APPROVE CONTRACT
After 20 months of negoUa-
tion, the Commission agreed to a
working contract with about 35
workers on the Road Department
and Mosquito Control Depart-
ment, to be effective until Sep-
tember of the current fiscal year.
At a previous meeUng, union
representative, Wallace
O'Brannen remarked, "This con-
tract took 20 months to gain ap-
proval. You can bet It won't take
20 months to work up the next
one."
The contract Is with the Inter-
national Union of Operating Engi-
neers.

Pair Caught, Charged In Burglary


Edward Lee McCloud, 22, of
322 Avenue E, is In jail facing a
$7.500 bond and Fred Bell, 28,
177 Avenue F Is facing a $1,000
bond on charges of burglary and
being a principal to the act, ac-
cording to Chief of Police Carl
Richter.
McCloud is charged with tak-,
ing in excess of $2,000 from a
safe at Hardee's Restaurant in


the early morning hours of Febru-
ary 4. with Bell being a principal
to the burglary.
According to Chief Richter,
Patrolman Terry Carr was on rou-
tine patrol on the night of Febru-
ary 4, when he ran into McCloud
in the downtown area of Port SLt.
Joe. McCloud asked for a ride to
the Pine Ridge Apartment com-
plex and Carr granted the re-


quesL It was later determined
that McCloud got a ride back to
town and entered Hardee's with a
key he had apparently received
from Bell, who was employed at
the restaurant at the time.
After gaining entrance.
McCloud is alleged to have
opened the safe and taken the
cash. McCloud was said to know

covered from the Hardee's burglary.


Before the Commission would
give their approval on the con-
tract, several minor instances of
clearing up language in respect to
the holidays, light duty and juris-
diction over constitutional officer
Employees.
The Board pointed out they
were not signing for Courthouse
officers' employees. "The Commis-
sion has no authority over these
offices or their employees," attor-
ney Pat Floyd told O'Brannen.
Nor would the Commission agree
to limiting non-union members to
union holidays. Attorney Floyd
stipulated the union employees
would be getting holidays spelled
out in their contract, but would
not necessarily participate in holl-
days allowed non-union employ-
ees, if they happened to differ.
Pay for light duty was also'
discussed, with the rules of
Workman's Compensation being
the rule to follow.
Chairman Peters made it
clear that the holiday of Martin
Luther King's birthday would be
included for all union and non-
union members alike. The Board
agreed with Peters.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other business, the Com-
mission:

land, making it more useable by
people to 'live on.
-Heard a report that the air
handling unit of the Courthouse
air conditioning system is out of
order and gave its permission to
ask for bids to repair it. The sys-

Ralph Roberson was installed
as President of the Port SL Joe/'
Gulf County Chamber of Corm-
merce Tuesday night, at the
Chamber's annual installation
banquet In which 140 of the 190

state, highly sensitive to the envi-
'ronment, trying to attract indus-
try to its borders. "Our depart-
ment Is sending out vibrations

sensitive environment," Farmer
said.
.The Secretary pointed out
that his department is cutting
through the red tape of permit-
ting and putting out the news
that a permit will be decided,
"yes" or "no," and if "no," a reason
why given, within 90 days. 'This
hasn't been the case in the past,"


Farmer said.

ber to work on its port and find
Its "niche" in the export market
as a means of boosting the local
economy.

All Signs Are forAn Economic Recovery


The newspapers tell us the economy is look-
ing up these days, with more consumer confi-
dence, more people willing to make purchases,
factories kicking up their speed of production,
interest rates down, homes being purchased at
the strongest rate in 20 years. All indications
point to a healthy economy except unemploy-
ment. There are as many people still hunting
jobs as there ever was.
The picture is no different here in Port St.
Joe. Business is doing more business, but do-
ing it with fewer personnel.
Last week's lead story on page one of this
remarkable newspaper gave the good news that
new business is building and old business is
expanding in Gulf County and gave indications
are there is more of the same to come. Things
are looking up.
The best news is that this little bit here at
the beginning of the year is only the beginning
of greater things to come during the year. We're
excited!
By the end of this year, we should be able
to purchase a sandwich in still another place,
at least two of thegrocery stores will have more
items offered for sale and wider aisles to oper-
ate the grocery carts in, the Senior. Citizens
should have a nice new home and it should be
a lead-pipe cinch to get to the beaches without
a balky draw bridge standing in our way.
Progress is coming with a better economy.
the long-awaited redevelopment of down-
town Port St. Joe should be getting under way
with their construction by the end of the year;


a project which has also been in the wings for
several years as plans were being made, deci-
sions made on what to do and how much,
plans for financing were ironed out and the
general project cranked up and under way.
That will be good news for those who have
been working on the plans for the past four
years, tugging and pulling, talking and cajoling.
The long-awaited water system at White
City should begin construction about the ,mid-
dle of the year and just might be complete by
the time Christmas rolls around again. Those


folks have been working what seems like a long
time on this one, too. It's been a long wait, but
won't it be nice when it is complete and in use?
Williamsburg and Methodist Hill in Wewa-
hitchka will also have piped water and piped-
away sewer ,by the end of the year which
should make those folks happy.
This isn't to say that everything is turning
rosy all of a sudden and that we no longer have
needs nor is every problem we have repaired to
the point where we can all sing, "Happy days


Are Here Againr" We haven't reached that envia-
ble plateau as yet. There are still plenty of
things to do and get accomplished.
It would seem like, however, in spite of our-
selves, things are working out pretty good over-
all. Try as we might to destroy the good things
of life we still seem to be making progress in
the right direction.
It's a heartening thing to see things turning
out positive with so many negative things
standing in the way of improvement.


State Still Having Trouble Making Ends Meet


In spite of progress here in Gulf County go-
ing against all reason in its attempt to get bet-
ter, the State of Florida still scares the pants off
us, trying to get the state government ironed '
out. There are so many things which need do-
ing and they still appear to get more difficult to.
accomplish as the days go by.
Have hope, though. With the precedent set
by Gulf County and as hard as we all tried to
mess things up, they still turned out pretty,
good. Maybe the state of Florida will follow suit.
But they're playing with our confidence and
trying to convince us all that the state is going
to the dogs.
Take. law and order, for instance. Once
more, there is a move afloat to release 10,000
prisoners early so more can be sent to prison.
No murderers, rapists,,or other serious offend-


ers, however. You just thought that everyone
who was in prison was dangerous and a dis-
tasteful individual.
Experience hasn't been very good in past re-
leases from prison, but we're going to do it
again.
We learned the other day that the Governor.
was embarrassed because the state of Florida
messed around and let the deadline pass by for
requesting federal grant money and as a result,
the several communities with projects eligible
for federal grants were left hanging for a year,
simply because state government fouled up and
didn't request the money.
A minor inconvenience.
Back to early prison releases. Another mo-
torist has been shot at near Jacksonville on
285 around the city. Days of the wild west are


returning. Wild west Florida, that is. Aren't we
civilized here in the nations fourth largest
state?
Now the coup de gras.
A committee has been named to guarantee
,a mother's right to nurse her baby in public.
An adult can smoke most places, eat practically
everywhere, drink even alcoholic beverages in
public and pollute the air with foul language,
but a committee must be formed to investigate
just how a mother can perform such a basic
need as feeding her baby without being a can-
cer on society. Come on now!
Have we degenerated to the point where a
mother breast-feeding baby in public is ob-
scene but a couple engaging in simulated copu-
lation on television isn't? Or is it that the Legis-
lature has nothing better to do?

Valentine's Day and me
didn't get 'off to a rip roaring

were "engaged to be married." Lis-
ten, Mary E. Pendleton was the
biggest child in the second grade.
Shoot, she was the biggest seven-
and-a-half-year-old- ever seen in
those parts. She stood head and
shoulders above me. If we'd
a'known about those Guinness
folks back in our little communi-
ty, 4we might have had a record. I
heard Dad say on more than one
occasion, "Bless Mary E.'s heart -
- she was born large and then

to laughing so hard I thought he
was going to have a stroke. 'Yeah,
you can fight us, but what are
you going to do about Mary E.,
she can chew the three of us up
and spit us out 'with one hand
tied behind her back!"
Mary E. walked by and
smiled at lunch. I near 'bout went
under the' table! It got the guys
rolling.
"How do you reckon she got
this far from the ocean?"
"I have no idea, I wonder
what they feed her?"
"I heard it was a cube steak
and two bales of hay.":
"I can't wait 'til we get in high
school we've got our float"
"I can see the wedding now -
Kes in his little tux waiting at the
altar, Mary E. over in the recep-
tion hall devouring the wedding

I tell you I hated Valentine's
Day. And with good reason!
And we weren't stupid in the
second grade either. By then we'd
figured out that this whole Valen-
tine thing was started by those
Brach Candy folks and that big-
card company just so they could
make more money. 'Course, I
didn't see how the card company
was doing it In 1954, you could

Every Valentine she Just goes up
to the attic and pulls out a hand-

Now, here's where this story
takes an unusual turn. And I
don't know exactly how it hap-
pened, but somewhere along
about the seventh or eighth grade
I began to do a little re-thinking
about this Valentine thing. Some
girls were not as bad as .I'd..hbeen
led to believe. One or two were ac-
tually kind'a nice. Charlotte Mel-,
ton was even pretty And you
know what -- Mary E. was only a
couple of inches taller than me
now.
We still made fun of the girls.
Old habits are hard to break. But
somehow, it no longer had a ring
of authenticity to it. I wouldn't
dare breathe a word of this to a
soul but I begin to wonder
what it would be like to kiss a
girl.
SStasie Brannon had a Valen-
tine party at her house. A couple

He Would Have Been Really Tall IfSo Much Wasn t Turned Under


IT SOMETIMES GETS
"crowded" around here when Kes,
Wendell and I all get to writing
columns for the paper. It gets
crowded in the sense that at
times at least two of us will come
up with the same subject and one
of us has to change in order not
to bore you, the reader.
Changing gets sort of incon-
venient at times. I usually have to
be the one which changes. Wen-
dell skulks in sometime during
the night and shoves his column
under the .door. This' way, he
avoids my critical eye on his tome
of the week. Or he will come by
before anyone gets up and about
in the morning and drop off his
copy before anyone gets here in
the composing room. Wendell
uses his Job in Panama City as an
excuse for his nocturnal habits.
He has to go to work, or he got in
late, or he just missed us.
Then Kesley is one of those
kind who drops by at the last


minute to do what he has to do.
There's usually about two sec-
onds left on the deadline clock.
when Kesley blows in, with his
column scribbled out in hard lead
pencil on the back of a grocery
bag. Those bags will be priceless
one day, I know, but I have resist-
ed the urge to save them. .
One week we cleaned out the
coffee maker and dumped the cof-
fee grounds for the year in the
sack Kesley's column was written
on after Lisa had set it up into
type.
Next year, when we clean the
pot, he'll probably use an old en-


velope, or a piece of a paper tow-
el, or maybe a half roll of toilet
tissue. Whatever is handy and
anything to keep us from making
good use of his writing material.
KESLEY HAS WRITTEN a
column, on "Dogs I Have Known,"
and Wendell has expounded on
"Girls I have Known and Thankful-
ly Forgotten Before They Got Me
In Trouble," and believe it or not,
those titles didn't clash with an-
other on that particular day. It
isn't often I write about dogs-
either the two legged or four
legged variety-I have known, or


about girls who just about got me'
Into trouble. Kesley and Wendell
are both "loose" for want of a bet-
ter word. ,
Well, 'they have never written
about "People With Big Feet They
Have Known," to my knowledge.
It wouldn't do for either of them
to talk about someone else's feet,
" the size or the odor. ."
But, I'm about to.
FRIDAY MORNING, I read
about this young man who had
used the size of his feet to get into
the Guinness Book of Records.
He wore a size 23 shoe, so I figure
his place in -the records .Is .safe.
His feet averaged.being 17 inches:
long-one foot was 16 1/2 inches
long and the other was 17 1/2
inches long.
That young fellow would have
a hard time trying to get his foot
in his mouth! Some we know
wouldn't, but he would.
The young fellow's name is
Matthew McGrory. He Is a stu-


dent at West Chester University
in England. He is 7-foot-4 and
weighs 280 pounds.,
just a growing boy!
I suppose that young man
has problems in- everything he
does. Not many chairs, beds, so-
fas, cars, buses, airplanes, or
-stair treads are made for 7-foot-4
people with a size 23 shoe.
THE THING ABOUT that af-
ticle- which attracted my.attention
was,"' I have a grandson- who
wears size 15 1/2 shoes and be-
lieve me, his feet are big!
I can't figure out where he in-
:herited a size 15 1/2 foot. I'm
talking about number one son,
Ray's number one son. Ray
doesn't have big feet. As a matter
of fact, they are kind of small,
considering feet as a.'whole. My
feet aren't big. I. wear a modest
size '8 1/2 shoe. Frenchle's feet
aren't large. She wears a size 6
shoe.
That only leaves one place he


could have inherited his big feet,
and I'm not about to say where
that is.
The poor boy has to have his
shoes special made if he is to get
a pair which fits correctly. He is
tired all the time from carrying all
that weight around on the end of
his legs.
The lad can't run because his
feet are so huge. He stumbles
over them. He is studying to be
an aeronautical engineer and
making straight "A's". Well,. he
couldn't depend on using his feet
to make a living with, so he had
to develop a functioning head.
I tell you, someone with a size
15 1/2 foot has problems! When
his feet get cold, he is cold all
over and it takes a while to get
warm. It takes half of his bath
time, just to wash his feet.
I couldn't help but feel sorry
for that young lad who is stuck
with size 23 feet. When they get
to smelling, that's bound to be a
king-size stinks

Update On Shad Phantry
The famous (or infamous) Shad Phantry was in town last week
and I thought some of you might be interested in knowing how he is
coping with retirement life in Pensacola.
Shad is doing quite well as far as his physical condition is con-
cerned. His mental condition, however, is a little worse for wear.
That's saying a lot, considering he was a borderline basket-case
when he left here.
According to what he told me, he's becoming more and more
restless because he doesn't have anything to occupy his time. Ho-
dene, his loving wife of 20-odd years, has run him out of the house
countless times and has even threatened to divorce him if he didn't
find something to do besides stay under her apron strings all the
time.
That scared Shad, and he ain't afraid of nothing
With all that time on his hands and nothing to do, Shad finally
decided to start a second career; he decided he would become an
inventor. Yes sir, he said he almost fished the Escambia River dry,
so he's going to become a world-famous inventor. As a matter of
fact, he has several projects going right now that may lead to for-
tune and fame for he and Hodene.
Although it's far from complete. Shad is working on the first-
ever, convertible pickup truck. He called General Motors and Ford,
but they Just laughed at him and hung up. He was going to call
Toyota but he didn't want to pay fifty cents for directory assistance
and he. didn't know where to find a Japanese telephone directory.
Calling Chrysler, he said, was out of.the question.
After no interest was shown. Shad decided to take things into
his own hands. He attempted to modify his own truck, thinking it
would spark some interest with truck owners around Pensacola
and maybe he could start his own conversion .business.
Shad borrowed a blow torch and started cutting the top off his
truck. While he was cutting, a spark fell on the seat and the truck'
caught fire. Before he could put it out, the fire reached the pint of
moonshine he had hidden under his seat and it exploded an'd the
truck, moonshine and all went up in a fiery inferno.
He wasn't worried about the truck because it was insured, but
he was sick about the whiskey.
His next endeavor was a device to eliminate windshield wipers
on pickup trucks. This invention, according to Shad, will be called -
if it is ever completed The Wiperless Windshield Wiper For Pick-
up Trucks. Below are the results of his first test.
Shad secretly removed the motor and blower from Hodene's
vacuum cleaner and mounted it under the hood of his pickup with
the exhaust blowing upward, about two inches from the windshield.
The idea was that when the device was turned on the powerful,
forced-air blowing upward would prevent the hardest rain from pen-
etrating it and keep the windshield dry and clear.'
The theory sounded good, but when the motor was installed he
found he couldn't close -his hood so he took it off. He then took his
truck out for a test drive.
Shad isn't the luckiest person on earth. When he turned the
switch on, the vacuum motor came loose and fell into the radiator.
fan of the truck, which caused the fan to perforate the radiator,
which caused the engine to run hot and before he could get his
truck back home he had burned up the engine. He had to buy a
short-block assembly.
And, as luck would have it, while he was test driving his new
invention, someone stole his truck hood.
All of that was minor, however, compared to the altercation the
next day when Hodene tried to vacuum her floor.
Shad may beba.ck with us sooner than he thinks .

LETTERS
to the Editor


Need to Keep
Eye on Comm.
To the Editor:
What has happened to our
County governing body? It ap-
pears that some of our commis-
sioners are very immature when
it comes to working together for
the good of Gulf County.
Are the people we trusted our
county's future to, doing what is
best for us? Or are they more in-
terested in personal grudge,
matches?
Please, County Commission-
ers, remember we, the citizens of
Gulf County, elected each of you,
believing you were interested in
the county. Please remember we
pay your salaries, and we expect
you to earn it, just as all of us
have to earn our pay checks.
Everybody likes to take vaca-
tions, but most of us can not do
it at the expense of the taxpayer.
Please examine the true reason
for your planned trip to Washing-
ton, D.C. Could you gain as
much information right here in
our state meetings? .
It appears that we now have
commissioners that we, the peo-
ple of Gulf County, need to keep
an open eye on, so that they don't
make Gulf County a chess ,game
placed in checkmate by one or
two members. .'
Mr. and Mrs. C. Bird

Teachers Ask
for Salary Raise
.To the Editor:
Gulf County .teachers, like
most other teachers, go into the
profession because it is a reward-
Ing field and one in which they
hope to make a difference in the
life of a boy and girl. Richness in
our field' comes from our impact
on a life and not necessarily in a
salary.
Teaching is an honorable pro-
fession. In order to attract and
keep the best, and brightest
teachers, we must offer what oth-
"er professions do. The key to ex-
cellent students is excellent
teachers. The business communi-"
ty and parent community expect
high standards. Life has changed
for our' children during the past
decades. My dream of making a
difference is getting harder and
harder, but that doesn't mean
that I will ever stop trying.
Gulf County teachers work
harder than any group I have
ever known. Look at the cars at
the schools on the -weekend,
watch teachers buying things for
their classes out of their ,own


Chamber
(From Page 1)
Troy, Tonya Nixon and Ralph
Rish. In addition to Roberson
serving as president, Ralph Rish
will be the new vice-president;
Tommy Pitts, secretary and Jim
Faison, treasurer.
Retiring President Wesley
Ramsey, said in his report that
the Chamber was becoming in-
volved with the Port Authority to
try and attract some sea-going
cargo to the local port. The. retir-
ing officer also gave praise to the
financial institutions of Port St.
Joe which were involved in a
membership contest for the. past
two months. First Union Bank,
Wewahitchka State Bank and Cit-
izens Federal Savings Bank were
involved in the contest which re-
sulted in 37 new members being
signed up for the Chamber, bring-
ing the membership to .190.. First
Union Bank won the contest,
with 19 new members secured.
Citizens Federal and Wewa Bank
each secured nine new members.
Ramsey's report also revealed
that the Chamber had fielded
four inquiries concerning new
business or' industry in Gulf
County; joined two multi-county
groups in the Panhandle area to
attract support firms in the area
in the Magnetic North super com-
puter project being installed at
Florida State University; sent a
delegation to the Chicago Interna-
tional Plastics Trade Fair with
Florida Power Corporation; and
had four active committees,
among other activities.
The Chamber has been ,ac-
tively involved in the formation of

ter schools. The Chamber has 20

Nickolas Has Come A Long Way

Undergone Two Surgeries; Faces At Least Three More


Shelby Alls Scheffer, age two.
years, is very proud to show off
her new "Sissy and Bubba," Julia
Frances and Nickolas Wayne.
They were born October 28, 1992
at HCA Gulf Coast Hospital.
The proud parents, Larry and
Vickie Scheffer, have a lot to be
thankful for.
The two photos are very spe-
cial ones. One was taken two
days before Nickolas' heart sur-
gery. The other was taken on
Thanksgiving Day, four days after


Nickolas came home from Shands
Hospital in Gainesville.
Nickolas was born with a
congenital heart defect called pul-
monary atresia. Put simply, he
has only 3/4 of a heart. His sur-
vival rate was only a five percent
chance. After two heart surgeries
and 28 days in NICU and CICU,
he is at home. At the time of re-
lease, he weighed 5 pounds 5
ounces. At present, his weight is
10 pounds 4 ounces, which is
very good. -His specific condition


is very rare, and he faces at least
three to four more. surgeries. A lot
depends upon the success or fail-
ure of these. If not successful, a
heart transplant is his only
chance. So far he has beaten all
the odds. Nickolas and all who
love him are facing a very long
but hopeful road ahead. He is a
very special little boy. At th6 time
,of his birth a prayer line was
formed, that now reaches to Can-
ada. Through the grace of God
and many family and friends, his
parents find courage and
strength to face each day.
February is heart month. In
the United States about 25,000 to
35,000 children are born with a
heart defect each year. Thanks to
funded research by the American
Heart Association, most of these
children can be helped. There are
many ways an Individual can
help.
*Support your local American


Heart Association.
*Blood donations.
*Organ donorship.
Approximately every- 20 min-
utes, someone in the U.S. is in
need of an organ transplant. Ac-
cording to United Network of Or-
gan Sharing (UNOS), which main-
tains a computer list of those
waiting for organs.
Consider these statistics:
*29,838 Americans includ-
ing some 429 children, age 5
years and under, are waiting.
oAt least 22,677 .people need
kidneys, 2,381 need livers, and
2,731 hearts. Each year the num-
bers grow. There is at present an
82 percent one-year patient survi-
val for heart transplants.
Anyone can be a potential do-
nor (those under 18 may need the
written consent of a parent or
guardian). Most states (Florida)
you may declare your desire to be
an organ donor on your driver's
license. Check with your local
motor vehicle bureau.
UNOS has a toll-free hot line
800-24-DONOR. They can pro-
vide donor cards and answer any
questions on organ donation or
transplantation.

For Love or Spite?
Years ago, many books were
published explaining the symbol-
ic meanings of various herbs and
flowers.
The most popular valentine of
the era was called a Tussie Mus-
sie. It originated in England dur-
ing the 1600's, and extended to
the United States during the Vic-
torian period.
It began as a single flower
placed within a bouquet of herbs
and plants. Each one had a
meaning some loving and kind,
others vengeful and mean.
It is true that the majority
were good but woe to the con-
fused man who sent his love a
bouquet of the "wrong" flowers

BLEEDING GUMS

CAN BE SERIOUS


Bleeding gums are un-
healthy gums. The state of the
gums reflects the health of the
underlying tissues that can't be
seen and bleeding should
alert you that more serious prob-
lems lie ahead if the condition is
left untreated.
Fortunately, gingivitis is a
reversible condition. With proper
treatment it can be cured and
the gums restored to normal
health. If you can maintain
healthy gums, you can avoid
periodontal disease the ma-
jor cause of adult tooth loss.
The villain in the case of
gingivitis (and periodontal dis-
ease) is plaque. It accumulates
rapidly and develops under the
gums as well as between and


on the teeth. Plaque can harden
and build up if not removed reg-
ularly. This hardened plaque is
called tartar or calculus. At this
juncture, only a professional
scaling will remove the accumu-
lation under the gum line, which
is where these deposits can
quickly build and cause tissue
damage and probable loss of
teeth.
If you observe bleeding
from your gums, don't assume
that it isn't serious. See your
dentist.

Prepared as a public ser-
vice to promote better dental
health. From the office of:

A new pair of red wolves is on
St. Vincent National Wildlife Ref-
uge. The remaining male from
last season was captured and
sent to North Carolina to be
paired with a new female and
eventually released into the wild.
Refuge staff picked up a female
from the Audubon Park Zoo in
New Orleans, Louisiana, and she
was joined by a male from The
Wilds, a zoo in Ohio, in January.
Both wolves were born in captivi-
ty and are being held in an accli-
mation pen on the refuge.
.The wolves will hopefully
breed in the pen and then the
family will be released on the ref-
uge to gain experience living,, in
the wild. Both wolves were born
in 1991 and sometimes young
pairs don't breed successfully
during their first season together.
If breeding doesn't occur the pair
will still be released to gain expe-
rience living in the wild.
St. Vincent's part in the re-
covery of the red wolf remains the
same. The refuge is basically, a
training ground for red wolves
that will be used in mainland re-

The Port St. Joe Sharks are

'leases. Currently red wolves are
being released in two areas on
the mainland. A population of
over 20 animals exists in eastern
North Carolina at Alligator River
NWR an the surrounding areas.
Releases have also started in the
Great Smoky Mountains National
Park in Tennessee where 10
wolves are now living in the wild.
The world population of red
wolves is estimated to be from
202-205 animals. Hopefully St
Vincent wolves will help increase
that number during the upcom-
ing breeding season.

Excerpts for a Pei Pal
From Lindsey Carter
...I also like to play on my
computer arid the Nintendo. I
have a P.C. Compatible. But I
love to play Four Comer Dodge-
bail. (Please don't say, "If you love
it why don't you marry it.") I hate
Sit when they say that. I like to lis-
ten to T.L.C., Whitney Houston,
and Janet Jackson. I want to be a
movie star, a doctor, lawyer, of a
nurse. I. haven't decided yet
When I do. I'll lit-you know!
