Drive Started Tuesday to
Raise $100,000 In Two Years
A drive was kicked off at a
short ceremony Tuesday after-
noon, to raise a $100,000 to be
used as a scholarship endowment
here in Gulf County for high
school students. The drive has a
goal of furnishing a scholarship
fund of $20,000 annually for Gulf
County students, in connection
with the Jessie Ball duPont fund.
The duPont fund is contribut-
ing $15,000 annually to the en-
dowment fund, to be used for
helping students attend the col-
lege of their choice.
The endowment fund will be
invested with the interest pro-
ceeds resulting in an annual
scholarship fund of approximate-
ly $20,000 for Gulf County stu-

students earn points for atten-

The scholarship trust is being
raised and monitored by the Gulf
County Scholarship Committee, a
' subsidiary of the duPont fund,
which inaugurated the plan for
County students to attend insti-
tutibns of higher learning, some
four years ago.
Over 125 County graduates
have benefitted since the program
was first begun. In 1987, Gulf
County started a program to in-
crease student participation in
post-secondary education. Since
that time the percentage of stu-
dents continuing their studies be-
yond high school increased from
50 to 80 percent

Inching Close to Completion
The new Highland View bridge, crossing the Gulf
County Canal is inching closer to completion, as C..W.
Robert6'Constructioh' Comnpany started work on paving
the approaches to the structure this week.
The roadway over the bridge is about half complete,
with work going full speed on this portion of the pro-
ject. Two gaps are waiting to be closed in the frame-
work crossing the Canal, as well.
Engineers with the project anticipated the comple-
tion of the $10 million project sometime in May, if the
weather remains clear, where the crews can work.
This photo was made Tuesday about noon and shows

George "Buddy" Simmons Charged with
Aggravated Assault with a Firearm
George Walton "Buddy" Sim-

4:00 a.m., Friday on Overstreet
Timothy Mark Gay, 33, has
been released from a Panama
City Hospital after treatment of
gunshot wounds and Leslie Whit-
field is still hospitalized in serious
condition, as a result of the alter-
cation. Both Whitfleld and Gay
are also from Wewahitchka.
According to the Gulf County
Sheriffs Department spokesman,
Simmons and Gay, who are fellow
workers, decided to go to Panama
City and celebrate Gay's birthday
on the night of Februaiy 18. Both
men got into Simmons' vehicle,
picked up Simmons' girl friend,
Leslie Whitfleld, and Gay's girl-
q While in Panama City, ac-
cording to the investigators, they
stopped at several nightspots. On
the way home the two discussed
whose vehicle was the fastest and
decided to go to Gay's home, on
Highway 71, south, and get his
truck, to race the two vehicles.
Gay was following Simmons
on Highway 71, south of Wewa-
hitchka, when the two vehicles
locked bumpers, Simmons' rear
to Gay's front, at Highsmith
Road. The two got into an argu-
ment about how to unhook the
vehicles and as the argument
progressed, Gay struck Simmons.
The two began to fight. The two
females got out of the vehicles
and attempted to stop the fight.
Simmons reached under the
front seat of hlis vehicle and re-
trieved a .22 automatic pistol. As
he displayed the firearm, Gay be-
gan to retreat to his truck, ac-
cording to witnesses. Simmons
began shooting with the first shot
hitting Leslie Whitfield in the low-
er back, the second shot striking
Gay in the right side of the shoul-
der, the third shot hitting the
window on the passenger side of
Gay's truck and the final shot
striking Gay a second time, in the
left hip area,
Simmons left the scene, then,
taking Leslie Whitfleld to her
mother's home. From there, she
was transferred to a Panama City
Hospital. At press time yesterday
[Wednesday] her condition was
still listed as "serious". Gay also
went to the hospital and has been
released from hospital care, with
both bullets still lodged in his

Talks Result From Middle School Idea
In three public forums held
during the past week the Gulf

No Beef Coming If Extra Tax Going Toward Debt
President Clinton said exactly what the peo-
ple wanted to hear last Wednesday, just like a
good politician should. He said this nation was
going to get on a pay as you go basis and pay
for part of that which we have already gone and
put on our credit card.
It was a "tighten your belt and fork over
some new taxes because we're going to get sol-
vent once again," speech.
The President said, 'There are no sacred
cows," in his report to the nation and then
went on to name a few which were still consid-
ered as "Golden Calves" by his administration.
There were health care relief, head start, unlim-
ited college -loans, created jobs, and a few oth-
ers: all of which had preferential status.
But, it wouldn't be a new administration
without a few new programs to prime a partic-
ular pump the new President thought needed
priming. A few personal ideas injected into our
national program are to be expected and we
shouldn't be getting, too excited about them.
We noticed, too, that the President hit on
welfare, saying we wouldn't recognize the pro-
gram in another four years. Probably not. It will
either get even larger than it is now, or it will
diminish, as he promised. A two year limit on
welfare for any one individual was promised
and then it's go to work, either at public tasks
or in the private sector. That one boondoggle is
the largest vacuum of public money which is
serving no good purpose, found in the govern-
ment budget today, We will not argue the fact
there are those out there who are not able to
work, have no opportunity through no fault of
their own and special circumstances. But, to
hand out funds to everyone who applies for
them is no way to treat the rest of the nation.
Those of us who work and pay taxes are
just at the edge of revolt, if the President
doesn't do something about welfare.
As was expected, President Clinton an-
nounced an additional tax program, with the
premise being, to pay for the new programs and
We Hate to be
Pardon us if we don't think creation of a
middle school in our Gulf County school sys- -
tem is going to solve our local problems. We
don't think it will, nor do we think it will solve
even enough to justify the expense of change,
nor the trauma of shutting down a portion of
our present high school.
We wonder how many of you remember that
the future was considered when the new high
school was built and realize it has facilities and
room for 1,200 students? How many realize the
present school population is rattling around in
the plant like a peanut in a shoe box?
How many realize that probably a bigger at-
tribute than a middle school was shut down
about four years ago and the nice buildings,
being grossly under utilized? This happened
reduce the staggering debt of this nation. Well,
the speech wasn't two days delivered before the
news media announced the reduction of the
deficit would not be as much as announced. So
what else is new?
According to Friday's paper, the four-year
reduction plan will cut the debt by $325 billion
instead of the promised $493 billion. That will
be accomplished by the promised tax increases
on the rich, the middle class, cuts in programs,
etc. Well, we say, "praises be," for any little bit
of progress, whatever the amount!
You realize, of cotirse, that the budget must

from the curriculum; a gross mistake in our
way of thinking, but a step which might have
been necessary, given the small student partici-
For the most part, middle schools are creat-
ed because of the school population in high
school grades. We don't have that problem and
have never had that problem. When our school
population gets to the 1,000 to 1,100 mark,
then it's time to start thinking seriously about
a middle school concept.
We should be talking about only two prob-
lems we have in the schools in Gulf County:
lack of parental support and interest in what
their children are learning or failing to learn;
and student discipline.
be balanced, knocking out the $250 billion or
so built into the present budget, and more reve-
nue collected to pay on our debt which we have
been incurring over all these years. You'll not
get much static about new taxes to do this, but
Americans will howl to high heaven if the mon-
ey is used for something else.
It's going to hurt, doing a complete turn-
around in our spending habits. Let's hope our
combination taxing and program cuts doesn't
tempt us too much to spend all that accumu-
lated cash on "feel good" programs, rather than
put the money where it is needed.
When parents insist that their children stop
taking easy courses to ease up on the demand
for study time, then students will be on their
way .to being prepared for college. When par-
ents insist on home work for their children and
don't berate the teachers for "loading them
down" you will have learning going on. When
parents insist on their children reading instead
of chasing the streets, riding around in their
cars, or spending their every waking hour in
front of a TV set, you will see positive results.
And, when students are required to behave
themselves while at school, things will be -as
different as night from day.
Teachers aren't allowed to discipline and
students know it. When that situation changes,
so will the quality of education.

You Get the Full Treatment At A Gulf Coast College Banquet
FRENCHIE AND I had an ex-
perience one night, two weeks
ago. Actually it was two weeks
We received an invitation to
pay $35 and attend a dinner pre-
pared and served by the Culinary
Arts Department of Gulf Coast
Community College. The money
went to help pay for scholarships
at the school.
They did things up brown, let
me tell you. The men had on tux-
edos and the ladies had on the fe-
male version of a tuxedo. They all
had a white apron; around their
waist and tucked in under their
belt They moved about as quiet
as a nurse in a hospital room and
handled everything about like it
was a hospital operating room.
No human hands touched food or
utensils. They were expert at han-
dling rolls and things with two
forks held together like tongs.
IT ALL STARTED with Bob
King, tooth dentist, approaching
me about a month ago and ask-
ing me if I would like to attend
the dinner,' planned two weeks
ago. Well, Bob sells these tickets
about three or four times a year
and I had promised him I would
go the first time I didn't have a
conflict with the night planned to
have the dinner.
It turned out I did have a
conflict with the dinner two
weeks ago, but I went anyhow,
because he had been after me for
so long to go.
I couldn't read the menu. It
was In French. I told Bob, "I don't
know if I like any of this stuff or
not." Bob said, "Aw, it's just fish,
beef or chicken with an appetizer
of onion soup."
I don't know how he got that
out of those French words on that
menu. He came from Luverne, Al-
abama and I don't think they talk
much French in Luverne. I took
his word for it that the food
would be good and bought one of
his tickets, for Frenchie and I to
No, Frenchie doesn't under-
stand French, either. We went on
faith. Faith that Doc King wasn't
pulling our leg.
WE DROVE UP TO the build-
ing with the French sounding
name, to eat the French food, and
were greeted by a giant of a
Swede from New Jersey. How's
that for a start?
Bob was out on the sidewalk
, pacing up and down in front of
the place, waiting on all his ticket
purchasers. They all came.
We were ushered in this nice
looking room. The giant Swede
from New Jersey said the name of
the room meant, "Where good
people meet to enjoy a good
meal." It could have meant, 'The
Golden Arches," for all I knew. We
took a seat, pulled out by a wait-
er, who helped us to be seated.
I counted three forks, two
knives, two spoons and a giant
size plate I could have used at the
last church covered dish dinner I
attended and two glasses. I usu-
ally just use one glass, one plate,
and a. fork at home. Sometimes
the plate is' made of paper. This
plate was made of real chinal
We were served an appetizer
which looked like a Birdseye fro-
zen apple fritter, filled with three
kinds of cheese and lying in a pile
of tomato stuff, which Dr. Joe
Hendrix identified as Ragu.
Then the waiter took that
away and brought us some onion
soup in a cup/'which evidently.
had the handle broken, off. Just
like a soup bowl at home. It was
small, though. I had to leave
some because I couldn't dip it all
out with that round spoon the
waiter slipped me. I noticed Nolan
Treglown turned his up 'and
drank it after he had dipped all
he could with the spoon.
THE WAITER THEN brought-
a funny little dish with a dollop of
sherbet in it, which he called,
S"sorbet". It sure tasted like orange
sherbet to me! Another spoon was
laid down to, eat it with. I picked
up that spoon and the sucker
Let's see, we have now had"
the pastry appetizer, the soup
and the "sorbet". We then had a
salad of three shrimps, three
scallops and a couple of mush-
room slices, floating on two leaves
of lettuce with some dressing on
it.... and another fork!
These people must have a
comer on the market for plates
and utensils. It was a different
plate and a different fork, spoon
or knife for everything. :
Then I had baked fish, cov-
ered in some kind of pastry,
shaped like a fish. I'm not much
for baked fish, but that baked
fish was go-o-o-o-d! All of that
was topped off with a child-size
portion of cake lying in some
cream someone had evidently'
spilled in the saucer. I ate it any-.
If you ever get the opportuni-
ty to buy one of Bob King's tick-
ets to one to one of Gulf Coast's
dinners, you ought to jump at it!

How Did They Do It?
Everything is moving at such a fast pace and everyone seems so
rushed these days that I wonder how any of us make it to age fifty.
It's a tremendous job for a husband and wife, keeping a house,
raising three kids and paying the bills. My hat is off to the single
parent families, some of who struggle from day to day just to sur-
vive. I believe I would pour the coffee on the fire and call the dogs if
I were the parent of a single parent family. Sometimes I feel like do-
ing it anyway. .
But I can't do that and neither can you, no matter how hard life
gets from time to time.
Just this morning I was thinking about life and some of the
problems we have. It was about four a.m. when I woke up and
couldn't go back to sleep. After a few minutes I thought about my
mother and father and my childhood in Ferry Pass and I wondered.
as I often have. how did they make it through life with the burdens,
they have. .
How did my mother give birth to ten children and raise nine of
them to adulthood? Giving birth is a painful ordeal, they tell me,
but that pain is just the beginning when it comes to raising chil-
dren. What about the pain of labor that goes with raising nine kids?
It's hard to imagine how my mother made it, with virtually none of
the modern conveniences that we have today. And what about the
emotional strain? It's awesome with any number of kids!
How did my father get up each morning and go to work before
daylight and come home and work in the fields until dark-thirty?
On Saturday he would work all day and on Sunday he would load
us all up on the pickup and drive to Grandma's house and check
on Grandma, Aunt Lizzie, Aunt Her, Uncles Bob and Byron. He
Would also check on Uncle Lucian, too, but that was before I could
remember too much about what was going on.
Daddy and mother were kept busy: too busy to take time off for
pleasures like hunting or fishing. And the children were kept busy,
Certainly, we children helped, but there are some things chil-
dren can't do. Children can't hold down a Job when daddy is off
sick, or make house payments when there is no money coming in.
And children can't take themselves to the-doctor when they are sick
'or make themselves study their lessons for school the next day.
Children certainly can't give themselves the parental advice they all
need to grow into productive men and women. Only a parent can
provide these things.
How did! they get through all the mistakes of nine children and

die in the United States because of choking on foreign bodies. Most
of these cases occur in children under four years of age. About half
of this number involves hot dogs. Hot dogs are far and away the
most frequent cause of choking in small children.
It is understandable to have such a high number of choking ep-
isodes that occur with hot dogs because children love them. The
child will bite off a large piece of hot dog that is rubbery and does
not crumble, and it can easily plug up the breathing tubes of a
Caretakers of small children can still feed children hot dogs,
but they should be careful to slice the hot dog in thin slices, and
.then make four or six small pieces out of the thin slice. The small
child enjoys trying to pick up the small pieces and these pieces are

AN OLD TOOTHBRUSH
SHOULD BE REPLACED
Brushing your teeth with a worn out toothbrush is not
only making it difficult to clean your teeth but can actually
be harmful as well. You cannot do a good job with a bad
toothbbrush and this will most often lead to a heavy build
up of calculus. At the same time there is a serious risk of
damage to your gums.
Ask your dentist to select the type of toothbrush he
wants you to use. He will know what style and texture will
be best for your teeth and gums. We have a complete dental
needs section and carry those brands of toothbrushes most
often recommended by dentists.

School Board Held Meeting at
On one of the coldest nights
of the. year, over 50 people braved
the cold to attend a meeting held
by the school board to talk about
the possibility of a middle school
in Gulf County. It would be saJe. I
believe, to say that all agree that
this concept is a wonderful idea if
the concerns can be worked out
like facilities, budget, curriculum
:issues, media resources, guld-
ance. administrative, food servic-
es, and transportation. There
wasn't too much advance warn-
ing of the meeting this time. but
maybe next time we can spread
thle word better .

--- By Larry A. Mathes
There is much promotion going on in the county about estab-
lishing a separate middle school site. In Wewa, this would mean
spending big bucks to renovate the old main street site to house the
sixth, seventh, and possibly the eighth grades, maybe as early as
next year. While this sounds simple enough, it never works that
way. There are many problems to overcome, some big and some
small, and It may come down to choosing between what is most
cost-effective as opposed to satisfying some parents. I encourage all
parents of middle school students to get involved and let your board
members know your feelings, so their decisions reflect the input of
the entire community.
WHS will sponsor "Career Day" Thursday, with 14 presenters
scheduled to review various career opportunities with the 9-12 stu-
dents. r ,
Also on Thursday, students will be entertained by a traveling
circus from 12:45 to 2:00 p.m. The cost will be $2.00, and the WES
students are invited to attend. Parents may also attend if they wish
at the same price.
