Board Offers Its


Support to Raffield

Vouch for Firm In Court Case I


Dr. Tom Curry brought the
school problems to the County
Commission, Tuesday night, ask-
ing for reconsideration of the time
table the Board has given the
School Board for vacating, their
suite ofoffices in the Courthouse.
Curry was asking for the
more lenient attitude in order to
help the School Board in dealing
with middle school funding as
well as the expense offending and
moving to other quarters before
the October 1993 deadline set by'
the Commission.
"Is it possible that you could
extend the time-frame?" durry
asked.
Chairman Nathan Peters ex-
plained several offices in the
Courthouse were badly in need' of
more room. He told of offices lo-
cated In safes, no storage for Im-
portant papers; "At least three of-
fices need more :room, now,"
Peters said. 'We've been fair with
the School Board. They pay no
rent or utilities, since they are tax
supported also. We have asked
for them to pay 20% of the utili-
ties with no results," he contin-
ued.
Curry pointed out that the
School Board was now "facing a
whole new ball game. They face,
having to do some serious reno-
vations to accommodate middle
schools as well as provide a home
for the centu i ._They-will be--
hard-pressed to do both at the
same time. Maybe you could Just
delay the deadline a while to give
them a little room to maneuver,"
he said.
Peters went on to point out
that the School Board had first
been asked to re-locate its main
offices in 1977. 'We have had no
answer nor seen any indication
,that they are moving," the chair-
man said.
Commissioner Billy Traylor.
added, 'We've talked with the.
School.Board about presenting us
a plan of their intentions but
have received nothing yet We've
made every effort. All we have
asked for is a definite effort on
their part.' We're going to work
with them, but they need to
present us with ,some plans,", he
said.
Chairman Peters closed the
discussion by commenting,
They're going to have to show us
some action before we can
consider anything."
BEACH WATER
Building Officer Don Butler
advised the Board that the City of
Mexico Beach was interested in
furnishing treated water for the
Beaches system.
The Beaches system present-
ly purchases water from the City


of Port St Joe, on a bulk basis.
Butler said, 'They have given
us a tentative price which is at
least a third less than we are pay-
ing Port St. Joe for water. It
seems that with that. kind of dif-
ference in rates, we at least owe it
to the customers of the system to
talk with Mexico Beach."
Butler later revealed Mexico
Beach has offered; bulk treated
water for $1.05 per thousand gal-
lons. The City of Port St., Joe
charges $1.80 per thousand gal-
lons. Butler Intimated the only
thing to be decided was quality
and dependability of service.
OTHER BUSINESS
In other items of business,
the Commission:
--Gae Mr. and Mrs. Monford
of Beacon Hill a release from tax-
es on some waterfront property in
exchange for Its use In the Bea-
con Hill Park. The Monford's will
still own the property, which Joins
the board walk to the beach, but
the public can use the property.
-Administrative Assistant
Larry Wells advised the Commis-
slon that Bay County is preparing
a plan to employ a Medical Exam-
iner to replace the retired Dr.. Sy-
bers. He said the tentative cost
would be $1.34 per capiLa from

Sheriff Raids

Pot Nursery.

Near Wewa
The Gulf-County Sheriffs De-
partment raided a marijuana nur-
sery operation Friday, after secur-
ing a search warrant to
investigate a mobile home.
Arrested was Steven Ashley
Bass, 38, Linton Road, Wewa-
hitchka, who was charged with
possession of the operation. Bass
had the nursery in a bedroom of
the mobile home. Also recovered
were 12 plants ready to bloom
and several pots containing seeds
or small plants.
Sheriff Al Harrison said the
nursery was equipped with lights
to encourage germination of the
seeds as well as some seeds
which were ready for planting.
Harrison said. "This is the
first nursery we've raided this.
year. It's time to get the young
plants ready to transplant for an
early growing season."
Bass was arrested and re-
leased on $5,000 bond.


Commissioner Warren Yeager
asked the County Commission,
Tuesday, to officially take a stand
in support of Raffield Fisheries in
its current problems with the
''. ;Federal Government in regards to
loan funds applied to parts of the
plant not specified in the loan pa-
pers..
Yeager said, "Raffield is a
large employer here, and they're
good 'people. They do a lot in the
county and don't deserve the has-
sle they're getting from the Gov-
ernment. They're honest, hard-
working people." The board
agreed with Yeager's suggestion,
and agreed to preparing the reso-
lution in support of the firm.
PURGE, REPAIR, RULES
Commissioner Billy Traylor
suggested that the Board meet
Thursday in a workshop session
to go through their old rules and
regulations--especially subdivi-
W, sion regulations-weeding out old


and out-dated regulations.
Traylor remarked, "We have a
good ordinance [subdivision ordi-
nance]; we just need to close all
the loopholes and take out what
no longer applies."
Traylor also suggested the
Board examine the Fire District
tax laws and come up with a law
which will require all residents of
a district to pay into the fire pro-
tection fund. "Everyone in a dis-
trict is receiving benefits from the
district and should be required to
pay for it," he said.
Traylor's remarks were
spurred by a request from the
Beaches Department to let bids
for a new pumper truck for that
department. Bobby Plair, spokes-
man, said, 'We have the money
for a down payment. We earned it
ourselves and will pay for it
through our own department. We
Just need to use your office to call
for the bids," he said.

PAGE TWO THURSDAY, MARCH 11, 1993


Take Caution; Let's Not Eat the Seed Corn


Okay! Okay! We're getting the wet noodle
out for a thorough flogging now! You are cor-
rect, Tom Gibson, this writer named an educa-
tional committee to come up with solutions, so
we should support their work. And, believe it or
not, we will-IF-every avenue is considered to
create a middle school without floating a bond
issue to build one. This we are against, and we
will remain opposed to.,
If Gulf County wants middle schools for its
children, that's fine!. If they want to continue
leaving the responsibility of our children's edu-
cation up to the school system, that is not fine.
The fact remains that a middle school
will not solve our education problems. It will
provide a desirable setting for learning, but
it will not solve the root problem with edu-
cation in Gulf County. That impetus must
and should come from the parents of the
students of Gulf County schools.
If Gulf County parents, en masse, get to-
gether and lay down the law to their children
that they are in school to learn and not cause
problems or disturb classes you would see the
learning climate change in the schools over-
night. They could hold classes under a shade,
tree, under these circumstances, and learning
would be accomplished.
Or, give the school system, authority to re-
move unruly students, putting them in a place
of alternative education so the remaining stu-
dents can be free to learn.
That was the whole point of the much ma-
ligned editorial of a couple of weeks ago. Maybe
the expression of that idea was weak, or too


strong, but that was the purpose of the editori-
al.
You see, we don't think the root of the prob-
lem is in the school; we think it is in the home.
Admittedly, a middle school would sup-'
ply a more serene atmosphere for learning,
to those kids of tender age than they now
have. Granted some of the older boys and'
girls are not setting much of an example of
what a responsible young man or woman
should be like. Middle schools would solve,
that problem. But, the problem would still
be in the senior high grades. It wouldn't be



Squeezing the
In three or four days, certain waters in Gulf
County-and the remainder of this particular
area will be off-limits to commercial mullet fish-
ermen. The commercial fishermen have been
fighting this and other actions by the Marine
Fisheries Commission primarily because of the
precedent they would be making. The Florida
Cabinet went along with the suggestion, despite
the objections of Representatives Robert Tram-
mell and Sam Mitchell.
The fishermen feel the move is only the be-
gifining of a movement to stop net fishing alto-
gether.
In Gulf County, the affected areas in
which mullet cannot be taken, except by
cast net or recreational gear, include: Lake


eradicated. We would like to see eradication.
If Superintendent Wilder can come up with
a solution for the problem of providing a middle
school atmosphere for no more dollars than is
now being spent, we're all for it.
Or if all of you out there will volunteer to be
placed on the ad valorem tax rolls and not bel-
lyache or complain when your bill comes, we
say, "Go for it!"
We'll accede to the argument that a middle
school is desirable and if. it is desirable, we
should have it for Gulf County children. But,
let's not go off the deep end here and bite off


more school than we can pay for. Our school
budget is already under enough strain. The
available dollars will stretch only so far.
We would be hard-pressed to do anything,
but utilize present facilities to the fullest. This
year's budget amounts to approximately $12
million. Only $3.7 million of that comes from
*local sources. You know how hard that hits.
State money comes in on a per pupil basis, so
we must bear all expense of change ourselves.
Again, we're with you on the middle school
concept-IF-we can find a way to provide It
without eating the seed corn.


Fishermen Just A Little Harder


Wimico and its tributaries, Jackson River,
Depot Creek, the Intracoastal Waterway to
East Bay and the Gulf County Canal.
Knowing how government works, we would
say the commercial fishermen are right on tar-
get and that this move by the Cabinet will, in-
deed, lead to an attempted abolition of commer-
cial nets in Florida. That would be a tragic
thing to happen, indeed.
Already, the matters of crime and fees for
fishing in the salt water are causing tourists to
hesitate about coming.to Florida. Crime in the
streets is bad enough, without the "crime" of
doing away with some of the very "color" which
attracts people to our state in droves.
Sometimes we feel as if only the ignorant


are in our government, because of the stupid, -
unthinking, senseless actions by our governing
bodies; from Washington to Tallahassee.
Governor Chiles, who has given commercial
fishermen his support in the past, went along
with this latest rule adopted by he and the
Cabinet last week. They attempted to soften the
blow by decreeing that recreational fishing for
mullet would be permitted through January 1,
1995, with' gill nets no more than 100 yards
long, with mesh no smaller than' three inches.
Cast nets were also exempt. I
After January 1, 1995, who knows what will
happen? The current rule was promulgated on
the premise that homeowners along these wa-
terways were complaining about the view. After
1995 what will the reason be?

He clicked on the TV.
I did a double back flip!

isode. It was the one where Su-

who are tied up in the basemenL
It's a trap for Superman! The bad

Lois pulled the lead pipe off a
conveniently located sink, stuffed
the kryptonite Inside and
stomped both ends shut with
what undoubtedly must have
been her steel tipped high heels.
"Golly, gee. Miss Lane."
Superman came to rather
quickly, but it was another close
call.
"Robert, what channel is
this?"
"Nickelodeon."
I'd heard of it, but I've never
watched it. Mostly I'm on ESPN
unless there's an old western.......
"Do I have It on my TV?"
"Sure."
I broke and ran for the
house. Superman was near 'bout

A Naked Angora Cat Is A Comical Sight to Behold


IF YOU SEE Nancy Mock
coming up your front walk with a
bundle under her arm, or leading
a non-descript dog or cat, lock
the doors. She is hunting a home
for the waif.
Or, if you have a stray dog or
cat which needs new surround-
ings, just call Nancy. She finds
them homes.
Nancy is one of those people
who is an animal lover. She is a
REAL animal lover since she
cares for those animals which
d-ave been left to their own devic-
es for a long period of time, or ne-
glected and abused. .
A dog or cat can quickly re-
ceive attention from her. It'll be
rescued if it can be rescued, and
a home found for it to get regular
meals and care.
I can bear witness to the fact
that animals don't get too
scrungy looking for her to give it
attention, a little loving care, nor
a trip to the veterinarian if it is
needed.


ABOUT A MONTH ago, we
had just finished with Sunday
dinner and I had set down with
my newspaper, turned to the bas-
ketball game on 'IV, preparing to
take my Sunday afternoon nap,
while reading the paper and
watching the basketball game.
Well, Nancy came ringing our
doorbell. Frenchie went to the
door and ducked out onto the
porch to deal with Nancy. I later
found out that the two were in ca-
hoots together. They went around
the house to the carport and after
awhile, Nancy drove off.


I didn't think too much about
because people are always com-
ing to borrow Frenchie's potted
palms or ferns for parties, show-
ers or weddings. I didn't think
Nancy was getting married again,
so I still had two solutions for her
visit, to draw from.
But she hadn't come by to
borrow ferns or palm trees, I
found out later."
WHEN I WAS good and grog-
gy from my rumination, Frenchie
came into the den, dragging this
poor substitute for an angora cat
and proudly said: "Look what


Nancy brought me!"
That was a sorry looking cat.
Nancy had to dig deep to find that
specimen. Its long fur was knot-
ted all over its body, The poor cat
couldn't completely dpen its eyes
because of the knotted fur. It
* walked with a left-sided tilt be-
cause of the unkempt condition.
The only ray of sunshine to
come with that cat was that it
had already been operated on, it
had its -shots and it was com-
pletely housebroken.
I guess Nancy could have
brought a cat which didn't have
that much going for it and Fren-
chie would have taken it. I guess
I can be thankful.

FRENCHIE SET OUT to rid
the cat of the knots and balls of
fur which completely covered its
body.
All afternoon, she brushed
and pulled at the snarls, to no.
avail. They were too numerous,


too big. and too tight. The cat
would have to go through life all
knotted up.
I thought.
Last week I found myself tak-
ing the cat to the vet to get the
knots untied. It happened like
this: I sat down to breakfast and,
Frenchie said to me, "I'll put the
cat inside the caddy [which came
with the cat] so you can take him
to Dr. Nelson this morning."
That was the first I knew
about taking the cat to Dr. Nel-
son, but apparently everyone else
in the neighborhood knew it.
I took the cat to the vet hospi-.
tal. The "lady attendant" there
cooed and clucked at the cat and
talked some baby talk saying she
would take good care of it.
dardner-Watson Funeral
Home back in Perry, Georgia
used to advertise that his funeral
home had a "lady attendant", but
I don't think they are for the
same purpose.


I WENT BACK that evening
to pick up the cat and the entire
staff at the vet office were. just
cackling with laughter. When I
got the cat, I could see why. Did
you ever see a naked angora cat?
Even the cat was ashamed of how
it looked. *
Nancy happened to be in the
vet's office when I picked up the
cat and remarked, 'That's a $950
cat!" I offered tq sell for $1.98,
but she wouldn't take me up on
the deal.
Dr. Nelson handed me a bill
for $20.00. I have often wondered
how much a vet charges to give a
cat a shave and haircut. Now, I
know and it's more than six bits!
We have the only angora cat
in town, which runs around in its
birthday suit.
When I got home and turned
the cat loose, it zipped upstairs,
got in the closet, shut the door,
and I suppose has holed up until
its hair grows out again.
That's a funny looking cat!

Jokes That Are Not Funny
The point of a joke is to make someone laugh. If a joke is told
and no one laughs, it's considered a bad joke.
Webster defines "Joke" as, "Something said to cause laughter,
esp. a brief story with a punch line." But there is more to a joke
than Mr. Webster's definition describes. He failed to mention that
someone or something must bear the "brunt" of the joke. In other
words, someone or some group must be portrayed in a negative way
or in an unkindly situation in most jokes.
I don't enjoy jokes like I once did. Several years ago I knew liter-
ally hundreds of jokes, but one day I realized I was laughing at
someone's misfortune, either real or imagined, and I couldn't justify
that in my mind. So, I decided to stop telling jokes.
My decision did not prevent people from telling me Jokes, how-
ever..If a joke is told to me today, I don't laugh because I don't want
to enjoy a good time at someone else's expense. For instance, the
following joke was told to me just the other day. -. .
Adam was in the Garden of Eden and God looked down and
knew something was wrong and said, "Adam, are you :lonely?"
Adam answered that he was very lonely, so God asked him, "Would
you likeme to give you someone to keep you company and love, to
be your faithful companion, to keep your house for you, to wash
and iron your leaves and stick by you through sickness and health
and never leave you?"
Immediately, Adam answered, 'Yes,. oh, yes I would, Godl
Please send me someone like that!"
God replied, "OK, Adam, but it will cost you an arm and a leg."
For a few moments Adam thought about it and said, 'Tell me,
God, what cai I get for a rib?" ,
See what I mean? That's a sexist joke if I've ever heard one and
I don't appreciate it one bit And I'm not going to laugh-and I hope
you don't either.
Another Joke similar to the one above, but even more tasteles's
was told me just yesterday. I shouldn't even print it, but I want you
to see just how sick some of these people are that think up these
jokes. It went-
Once upon a time there was a wife and mother who became
tired of being a housewife and being dominated by her "redneck"
husband. He would expect her to get up in the morning and cook
breakfast and. get him off to work. While he was at work he expect-
ed her to keep house and look after the children and even have din-
ner cooked when he came home from work. After dinner he almost
always sat in his recliner and drank beer while watching ball
games.- ...
She confided to a friend who suggested she start attending a
'Women's Liberation" group meeting so she could learn how to free
herself from her husband's domineering ways. She started secretly
attending and after about three months the group decided she was
ready to confront her husband with her new-found freedom.
She was nervous, but decided the group was right. That night
* when her husband arrived home he said, "Hi, honey. What's for
supper?" ,. .
'Whatever you -want to get in the kitchen and fix!" was her curt
reply.
He walked to his recliner, sat down and said, "How about get-
ting me a beer out of the refrigerator?"
"Get off your lazy rear and get It yourself" she replied, now feel-
ing a little more confident
A few moments passed when her husband turned and looked at
her evenly and said, "How would you like not seeing me for a few
days?"' ..
"Whatever floats your boat, buster!" she replied, following her
Instructions and determined to go all the way.
Well, the next day she didn't see him. The second day she
didn't see him. Late in the evening of the third day, however, she
could see; Just a little..... out of her left eye.
That's not a funny joke and the person who thought it up
should be ashamed of even thinking such thoughts. It's far from be-
Ing funny and I'm not going to laugh.
* Next week I'll tell you a couple of tasteless Jokes about southern
rednecks. The following week it will be yankees and after that Po-
locks and after that...................

with lung cancer. Colby had sur-
gery in August of 1992, where
doctors removed what they be-
lieved was a benign carcinoid tu-
mor that occupied over 75% of
his trachea. We discovered in De-
cember that it had spread to his
lungs. He Is undergoing extensive
chemotherapy now and doing
well. We are going back for a CT
scan March 2, to se the results. I
can honestly say that God has
blessed us during this time. We
did not have a vehicle that was
dependable to make the neces-

ways got his man. Roy loved Dale.
Captain Midnight drank Ovaltine.

Just because the Sub SI

Attention, parents of eighth
graders Tired of being in the
dark about your child's school
life? Well, be sure to mark your
calendar for Monday, March 15.
The annual Open House will be
held at 6:00 p.m. that evening in
the high school media center. All
parents of eighth graders are en-
couraged to attend.
After chatting with teachers,
you might realize a need for extra
help in certain areas of your
child's school work. Speaking as
a student, I know we all need a
little extra help at times in certain
subjects. Besides, it can't hurt to
show teachers how conscientious
you are and possibly earn a few
brownie points! Free tutoring is
offered at the high school from
2:30 to 3:45 Monday thru Thurs-
day afternoons. Help is available
to all Jr. high/sr. high students at-
all levels. Tutoring for language
arts is held Mondays and
4( Wednesdays in room 109, while
Math is on Tuesdays and Thurs-
days in room 213.
I know all 12th graders will
be interested in hearing about
scholarship applications current-
ly available in the Guidance Of-
fice. It would be impossible to list
all the scholarship opportunities
dug up by our caring guidance
staff, so the best thing to do
would be to go and see Mrs. Belin
to check out your options. You
will undoubtedly be surprised at
the number of scholarships avail-
able for a person of your descrip-
tion. However, here is one schol-
arship currently available to
outstanding high school seniors
planning to attend Florida Agri-
cultural and Mechanical Universi-
ty, Bethune-Cookman College,
Edward Waters College, or: Flori-
da Memorial College. A minimum
of one year Florida residency is

required. This is a need-based
scholarship that offers $3,000 per
academic year. Interested? If so,
contact the high school Guidance
Office about applications under
the title of the Mary McLeod Be-,
thune Scholarship Challenge
Grant Fund. Hurry, applications'
must be postmarked by April 301

tion the varsity baseball team on

Fevers Are Not

All Bad; Do Need

to be Controlled

By
-/-.- Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

Normal oral temperature is 98.6 degrees and normal rectal tem-
perature is 99.6. Oral temperature of 99-100 and rectal tempera-
ture of 101 degrees will be a definite fever.
Everyone needs to know how to read a thermometer. If you real-
ly can not see the silver line in a regular thermometer there are red
line thermometers or digital thermometers. You can have some indi-
cation of fever by touch, but one really needs to definitely check in
order to know the magnitude of the problem.
Fevers are not all bad. The body mounts a defense against a vi-
ral or bacterial infection by running a fever.
Fevers do, however, need to be controlled. Our usual instruc-
tions for fever management are:
(1) Acetominophen (Tylenol, Tempra or Liquiprin in appropriate
doses for age and weight) every four (4) hours for temperature of
101 or over.
In the past, Aspirin was used to reduce fever. It worked well,
but because Reyes Syndrome seemed associated with the use of as-
pirin we discontinued using aspirin in viral illnesses with fevers.
The incidence of Reyes Syndrome has dropped from 550 cases per
year to 25 since aspiring is no longer used to reduce fevers in chil-
dren.
(2) Bathe or sponge (usually 15-20 min.) with tepid water for
temperature 103 or over. The bathing is done to keep the tempera-
ture in the 100-102 level to prevent the child from having a convul-
sion from fevers of 104-105.
When children are feverish, we want the body heat to escape
and dissipate. That means you should not wrap a child with blan-
kets. The child may feel chilly, but if wrapped in blankets the tem-
perature wll rise. It is acceptable to wrap in a sheet if the closeness
makes theihild feel better.
With tie climate in Port St Joe, there is no time a child could
be be taken outside if it is necessary. Generally speaking, when a
child is ill he should be in comfortable surroundings with a compe-
tent caretaker, but if circumstances dictate moving him for whatev-
er reason this is acceptable.
Children often fun slight fevers during the first day or so of a
new cold. When running fever they use up more liquid than when
they are normal. You always need to coax or push extra liquid into
a child running a fever. Dehydration can become an additional
problem for a child who has been running a feverr and not drinking
fluids.

Special to The Star
By Cheryl G. Fitzgerald
Executive Director
What is ARC?
I have had many people ask
me that question whenever I tell
them where I work. Many people
confuse ARC with the Senior Citi-
zens Center. Since we are pres-
ently located next to each other
on Peters Street, the confusion is
understandable.
Gulf County Association for
Retarded Citizens,. Inc. was.orga-
nized in 1978 to promote the gen-
eral welfare of persons with devel-
opmental disabilities. We are
committed to developing the po-
tential within each, individual to-
ward achieving inclusion within
the community and a normal ex-
istence, helping them realize their
goals.
In pursuit of these goals, Gulf
ARC provides support to individu-
als 'through vocational training,
socialization, competitive employ-
ment and residential services.
Acting as an advocate for the per-
son with the developmental disa-
bility, we try to develop a better
understanding by the public of
the problems and obstacles one


must face.
March is known as National
Mental Retardation Month. On
Sunday, March 14, Gulf County
Association for Retarded Citizens,
Inc. in conjunction with local con-
gregations will be observing Men-
tal Retardation Sunday. This is a
time for churches to focus atten-
tibn on the needs and abilities of
people with retardation in our
community. Inclusion makes all
things possible.

Sr. Citizens'

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.

St. Joe Track Team Begins '93 Season


Wakulla Meet
Last Thursday, the Port St.
Joe High School boys track team
opened its 1993 season as they
competed in a track meet at Wa-
kulla. The Sharks placed fourth
among the teams with 42 points.
They entered only 13 boys in the
meet. The remaining 13 boys
were involved in other school ac-
ivities. Because of this, the
Sharks entered only eight of the
16 events, and this kept them
from placing higher in the meet.
Scoring points in the meet for
Sharks were: Antwione Allen, first
In high Jump with 6'0"; Kenny
Daves, second in the 1600 with
5:12.6. sixth in discus with a
throw of 87'2" and fourth In the
800 with a time of 2:23.5: John
Bryant, second In the 300 hur-
'dies with 50.1; Robbie Dixson,
.second in the 3200 with 12:32;
'Nick Sweazy, third in the 1600
withl a time of 5:22.1; Pat Son-
:Tenberg. third place in the 800
with a time of 2:22.2: Lance Han-
-son, third in the 3200 with
13:14.9: Darius Chambers, fifth
place in the 3200 with a time of
13:24.1; Jonathan Pierce, fifth in
discus with 89'8".
"I was pleased by the effort
that the boys gave," commented
Scott Gowan. coach of the track
,.team. "The times were slow but
this was because of the strong
winds. Of the 13 boys participat-
ing in the meet, six were compet-
ng ing their first track meet. and
of the 13. seven of the boys-are in
either the seventh or eighth
grade.
1993 Outlook
The 1993 track team has a
chance to be as successful as the
1992 team. Last year's team fin-
Sished fourth at state, and had
two state champions, along with
five All-State athletes.
The Sharks return 12 letter-
men and have picked up 14 new


athletes. Zyris Hill. Joe Price,
Kenny Daves, and Shannon Gant
will be the nucleus of the running
events. Zyris and Joe will handle
the sprints, while Kenny and
Shannon will run the distance
events.
In the field events, Jeremy
Tull, Cedric Anthony, and Vic
Sellers will be the top throwers.
Zyris, Joe, and Antwione Allen
will handle the Jumps.
"Our strengths this year will
be sprints, relays, throws, and

Planting a herb garden is one ,,
of the best ways to enjoy year-
round gardening In Florida."
Herbs are easy to grow, they re-
quire very little care, and they'
don't take up much room. Even If
you don't have a large backyard.
you can grow herbs successfully.
A small garden bed, a window
bow, or even a few clay pots can
give you a plentiful supply of aro-
matic herbs throughout the year.
Herbs are rapid growers, and
they have a wide variety of uses
in the home. They can be used
fresh or dried. And,' when dried,
they'll keep for a long time. In
this article I'll explain some of the
basics of herb culture, and then
'we'll go into more detail about a
few of the herbs that are most
popular with Florida gardeners.
My information on herb garden-
ing was provided by Extension
Vegetable Specialist Jim Ste-
phens, located at the University
of Florida.
A good garden soil that's free
of weeds and close to a water
supply will keep 'your -herbs
healthy and growing rapidly. If'
you have the space, plant herbs

within easy' reach. Obviously, if
you scatter them across a wide
garden plot, you'll have to walk
i over other plants to gather them
unless you can provide some gar-
den pathways. Of course, if you're
growing herbs in window boxes or
clay pots, this won't be a prob-
lem.
Herbs vary considerably in
their need for sunlight-and cool
or warm temperatures. For specif-
ic information, you'll need to
check in a herb culture book, or
the, back of seed packages. We'll
describe a few of the most com-
mofl and popular herbs for you.
Dill is probably the easiest
and the hardiest herb you can
grow. It's usually planted In late
fall and early winter, because of
its ability to withstand cool tem-
peratures. It may also be planted
in the spring. Dill isn't particular-
ly fussy about Its soil. Any soil
that's suitable for your regular
garden vegetables is fine for dill.
And, another plus -- dill Is rarely
bothered by insects or diseases.
Fresh dill leaves add excellent fla-
vor to salads and cream sauces.
And, as a dried herb, dill is well
known for the distinct flavor it
gives to pickles.

Iarry K. Carroll-I feel that my
experience and education would
benefit the credit union and bring
new ideas to the table. Being the
S. product of an Air Force family I
realize the importance of provid-.
ing quality financial services and
maintaining a.sound financial base
for the benefit of the members.
I have built a real estate business from three agents to
twenty-two agents in only four years.' Meanwhile I have
remained active in community projects ranging from the
Board of United Cerebral Palsy to serving on the Fi-
nance Committee'of the First Baptist Church. My edu-
cational qualifications include a B.A. in Economics and
a B.S. in Management. The combined background of
business experience and education enable me to posi-
tively contribute to Tyndall Federal Credit Union. I
would appreciate your consideration for election to the
Board of Directors.

Pastors Jim and Susan List of The Rock of Port St.' Joe, 103 Garri-
son Avenue, invite you to join them each Sunday morning at 10:00 a.m.
as they gather to worship in the Lord.
Pastor Jim List was born in New Zealand to parents who came to
know the Lord through the Smith Wigglesworth revivals. His family was
.raised in Central Africa, where is parents were called as missionaries.
Pastor List received ministry training in the United States and returned
to Africa where he helped establish some 60 ministries while building 16
churches in several African countries. He has traveled to many nations
of the world teaching, ministering and helping to train pastors. They
currently assist with providing medical supplies and support to missionaries operating in the country of Mozambique.
Jim and his wife, Susan most recently lived and ministered in Jamaica where they helped to establish two churches.
Jim helped to pastor one of these while being on staff with Caribbean Christ for the Nations Bible School in Montego Bay.
After their two years at Caribbean Christ for the Nations and returning to the states, they attended The Rock of Panama
City and submitted to the leadership of Apostle F. Nolan Ball. In January, 1993, Apostle Ball released Jim and Susan to
begin a church in Port St. Joe.
You are welcome and they look forward to the opportunity of ministering to you and your family.
