at the



Cape

for a week of TV
Commercial Work
Touting 'Parfum'
In what sounds like a record,
Cape San .Bias warmed up this
past week to 3600. No need to
turn on the air conditioners, how-
ever. This "360" is a brand new
perfume, a premium introduction
from the Perry Ellis division of
Sanoft Beaute of New York. For a
week, Cape San Blas was the lo-
cation for shooting both the mag-
azine and IV commercials that
kick off this new entry in the lu-
crative fragrance market
This is not the first time that
Cape San Blas has been the site
of a national advertising cam-
paign. The Cape was first scouted
several years.ago by Brent Spec-
tor of the Five Union Square pro-
duction company for a Merrill
Lynch ad. Again this year, Five
Union Square selected the Bryant
house on the Cape as the location
for the innovative 360 perfume
campaign.
For one week the production
team responsible for bringing.
3600 to market assembled on the

ing television commercial work. The Sanofi Beaute firm
is the second group within a year to utilize the white
beaches and crystal clear waters a. a background.


It won't appear that way in the finished product, but
it was cold on San Bias beach last week to pretty models

Cape, arriving from New York,
California and other areas of Flor-
ida. More than 30 advertising
professionals, trucking in talent
and high-tech equipment, took
over the dunes and shoreline in
front of the Bryant house. Cathe-
rine Nell, coordinator for the
team, worked with Wyvonne Pick-"
ett of Cape San Bias Realty to ar-
range accommodations for the "
crew. Kathy and Shep Gonzalaz
of the Cape Cafe were enlisted to
cater breakfasts and lunches.
With the creative guidance of
the Steel Horse Studio of New
York, the 360 Perry Ellis ads will
feature the Cape's surf, sand and
sunsets. In keeping with the
whimsical aspect of the cam-
paign, the lithe and lovely model,
Lucia Tentor, was playfully photo-
graphed astride a cow. Betsy, a
black and white cow from Talla-
hassee and a newcomer to TV
shoots, never missed a cue.
3600Parfum and Eau de Toi--
lette, due to be launched in 34
markets September, 1993, will be
the signature Perry Ellis perfume
for women. According to Adrienne
Fontanella, the dynamic Vice
President of Marketing and Crea-


Live Development for Sanofl
Beaute, 3600 is blended as a com-
fortable and confident fragrance
for the woman who believes that,
"her world Is in her hands, and
'life is how she changes IL"

the, extensive Perry Ellis clothing
lines and the soon-to-be
launched home' furnishings line,
the' fragrance emphasizes casual
chic. The scent is a blend of floral
and musk with a sparkle of "cool
blue rose". It will be available as a
Parfum and Eau de Toilette. One
ounce of 360 Parfum will sell for
$185.00.
JTheir work completed, the
crew departed Friday, enthusias-
tic about their time at the Cape.
Trevoir Bodin, originally from
England and the hair stylist for

the group, saying that the shoot
was a success in spite of some
bad breaks in the weather, "But,"
he said, "the best part of being
here is the people we have met,
Everyone in town has been so

A member of the
Bryant family verified de-
tails of the program.


The several counties involved
have been meeting, trying to ar-
rive at a solution, ever since. Gulf
was the first county in the district
to officially adopt a concept to
hire a Medical Examiner to do
only their work. Other counties in
the Circuit are expected to follow
suit in just a few days, since all
had verbally agreed to the ar-

Each county will be charged
according to population but" the
amount of charge has yet to be
determined. In the past, Gulf
County has paid their Medical
Examiner on a per case basis.

Panama City News-Herald, it was
announced that States' Attorney
Jim Appleman of Marianna had
been given the authority by the
state Medical Examiners' head to

Initiating



New Funding

to Finance Housing Assistance

for Low and Moderate Incomes


The federal government has
provided a fund for Gulf County
to help both low and moderate in-
come families get started in own-
ing housing.
David Hines, a grantswriter
with Julian Webb and Associates,
was present at the Gulf County
Commission meeting Tuesday
night, to help the Commission
pass the necessary resolutions
and get set up to start utilizing
the funds to get the program
started.
Hines emphasized that the
funds to be administered by the
Commission, or their designee.
were not a gift, but only a low
cost loan designed to help fami-
lies get into home ownership.
The funds-$250,000 worth-
-are officially known as the "Gulf
County Housing Assistance Plan"
and are to finance both new
housing and provide rehabilita-
tion funds.
Hines explained to the Comn-.
inission that $220,000 of the
fund will be utilized for construc-
tion and rehabilitation of owner-
occupied dwelling units., $5,000
will be utilized for housing owner-
ship education to protect and en-
hance home ownership opportu-
nities. The remaining $25.000
will be utilized for administration.
There are "strategies" in the
program, which is to-be renewed
each-year throtgh-at-least 1-995.-
Gulf county will allocate six-
ty-eight percent-$170,000-to fi-
nance down payment assistance
in the form of a loan, to low, low
and moderate income house-
holds. The down payment assis-
tance loans will cover twenty per-
:cent of the purchase price and all
closing costs not to exceed four
percent of the purchase price.
The loans will be based on the av-
erage purchase price of $47,000,
the average loan will be $11,333.
The maximum loan amount will
be $1,000.
In the second "strategy"'
twelve percent of the funds will be
used for making rehabilitation
grants available to very low in-
come households. The grants will
be limited to $3,000.
In the third "strategy" eight
percent of the funds will be used
for making rehabilitation loans
available to very low, low, and
moderate income households.
The loans will be made on a slid-
ing scale of $0 to $1,000 for 36
months and $1,001 to $2,500 for
periods of 48 months.
An estimated 38 dwelling
units in Gulf County will be af-
fected during the first fiscal year
of the program.
The last "strategy" of the pro-
gram will make $5,000 available
to furnish counselling in home
ownership, qualifications for pur-


chase, securing credit, and other
obligations affiliated with the pur-
chase or repair of a home.
When they are repaid, the
funds will .be owned by Gulf
County, placed in a special re-
volving fund and used for the
same purposes over again.,
Hines said the County should
be set up in the program and
ready to take applications for the
funds in late June, or early July of
this year.
STICK WITH GULF PINES
A committee, composed of
Commissioner .Warren-. Yeager,
Wells, Bobby Plair, Port St. Joe
Police Chief Carl -Richter and
Florida Highway Patrolman Dal-
ton Upchurch, recommended to
the County that they maintain a
working. relationship with Gulf
Pines Hospital in Port StL Joe to
operate the. South Gulf County
Ambulance Service.
The Commission had asked
for evaluation and examination of
the service by this, committee,
- since the current contract with
the Hospital was expiring.
The committee recommended
that the Commission work closer
with the Hospital to keep a gcod
relationship between the two and
negate any misunderstandings.
"It's not feasible for the
county -to take over the ambu-
lance service operation" Wells re-.
ported to the Commission, at the
direction of the committee.
SHERIFF'S BEEF
Sheriff Al Harrison had what
he termed a "legitimate com-
plaint" against the Florida Marine
Patrol, which he aired before the
Commission for their agreement
in action to follow.
Harrison said people In -the
Indian Pass area are being pre-
vented from crossing their own
property with motor vehicles to
reach the beach. "The people own
the property and have been doing
this activity for up to 50 years
with approval of the County. The
Marine Patrol started stopping
them last week, because a small
portion of their property, which
they crossed, lies within a set-
back line. How do we handle
this? My first inclination is to ap-
pear with the property owners in
County Court and urge the Judge
not to make a case," the Sheriff
said.
The Commission gave .tacit
approval to the Sheriffs plan, so
the Gulf County Sheriffs office
will go head to head against the
'Florida Marine Patrol at some
'point of time In the future.

He Does What He Has To Do


Well, this is a refreshing development. Don
Butler, Gulf County's Building Officer, is a pub-
lic servant who takes his. job seriously.. No
hanky-panky, no favoritism, no sloppy work
and no hap-hazard decisions.
That is a refreshing situation. A public ser-
vant, giving the public its money's worth in his
job.
Butler's job was designed by the lawmakers
of the State of Florida, for the purpose of pro-
tecting the public from the ravages of storms
and from the wiles and cunning of unscrupu-
lous builders by setting certain standards they
must follow.
Some don't like it. Even some of the owners
of buildings don't like it. But the rules are de-
signed to protect a property owners' property.
Some of the builders don't like it because it
makes them look like they are gouging the cus-
tomer in price. The legitimate builder will faith-
fully adhere to the rules as a means of giving.
his customer what he needs to protect his in-
terest. Few customers know when they are get-
ting shoddy work until it is too late. That is the
Building Inspector's job and responsibility.
We remember a few years ago, under the
watch of a different building inspector, a prop-
erty owner at a beach development discovered
:quite by accident, one day, that the builder had
installed cedar board siding on his home up-
side down. Rather than shed water, the instal-
lation encouraged trapping water and it .rotted
out in just a short while.
Needless to say the property owner was liv-


id. He had spent a lot of money on a nice home
and the builder had given him a shoddy job.
The builder, by the way, was not from Gulf
County.
Had the building inspector had the interest
of the people at heart, the builder would never
have gotten by with his work. Or, if the build-
ing inspector had known the application of the
siding wasn't correct, he might not have gotten
by with it.
That's Butler's forte. He knows how to build
properly, and he won't approve any installation
which is not done properly. He isn't vindictive;


he just expects work to be done as regulations
call for it to be done.
Butler is cognizant of the fact that bureau-
cracy gets in the way of good sense at times,
and his experience stands him in good stead
here.
1 Butler displayed his value to Gulf Cobnty a
few weeks ago, when he refused to approve a
"project here in Port St. Joe, which was shoddy,
because it wasn't done properly. Again, it was
an out-of-town firm. It was a government pro-
ject. They have plenty of money so who's to
care if a couple of dollars are wasted re-doing a


project. The job was for some poor older citizen
without a lot of clout, who wasn't spending her
own money on the project, so who is to care if it
is done correctly or not?
Butler cared and put a stop to the project,
in order to protect the older, vulnerable, citizen.
In the future, the projects of this nature will
probably be done properly and we can thank
Don Butler that our tax money wasn't wasted
and the property owner can thank him that she
was able to get, not a fancy job, but an ade-
quate one which protected her from the ele-
ments.


A More Relaxed Look At the Problem


The doomsday element would have you be-
lieve *that we are being buried under our own
garbage and other solid waste. It's hard to pick
up a magazine .or a newspaper, these days, and
read any other prediction. The trend of thinking
is that, in the foreseeable future we will be con-
fronted with wall to wall solid waste in our cit-
ies.
And in the suburban areas as well.
Here in Gulf County we have been seriously
concerned because the state says we will be
concerned and they put a price tag on not be-
ing concerned which makes one wish they had.
Well, along has come William Rathje, an ar-
chaeologist, to poo-poo the idea and give some
reasonable ideas why we are not being buried.
Rathje is with the University of Arizona and


is doing his work at West Palm Beach in their
huge compost pile. Several years ago, we were
among a group of city officials who visited West
Palm's state-of-the-art garbage piles. They were
above-the-ground mounds, utilizing their
"working" to manufacture methane gas. A truly
modem method of handling solid waste.
But Rathje says there is no cause to worry
our pointy heads over such trivialities. Accord-
ing to him only a small percentage of our solid
waste is garbage. The rest is paper and con-
struction debris, which composts back to dirt.
The archaeologist says rather than worry
about what's in our garbage, we should start
being concerned with what's not in it. He re-
ports that in digging about the country that
fast food products, plastic foam, and disposable


diapers constituted the bulk of the nation's gar-
bage-or about 3% of the total.
Rathje concluded the notion of garbage in-
undation as "absolute nonsense. This nation
has handled its garbage more efficiently than
many other civilizations."
In reading the article and his quotes, we
drew the conclusion that most of the garbage
disposal rules of today could best be concen-
trated on hazardous waste disposal, rather
than use the same requirements on everyday
waste, which turns into useful compost after so
long a time,, anyhow.
That's a relief! But let's not slow up too
much. The cleanliness of our nation is some-
thing to be desired and maintained.


I Hunker Down with Kes I


Kesley

I tell you there's a lot to
like about Matthew White. Every
time I see him. he's grinning from
ear to 'ear. l' dn'ti think he'has
any "down" days. He says yes sir
and no. sir, and please and thank
you.: And he's a little on the quiet
side. Listen, 'in a, fourteen year
old, that's'a golden virtue.
He'll spend, the night with
Jesse and they'll get back there in
the bedroom and leave me
alone. Hey, I'm telling you this
lad is one of the all time greats. I
;sometimes will eavesdrop on their

sleep"
I reckon over the years Mat-
thew has spent upward to fifty or
sixty nights with us. And on each
and every occasion I've never
failed to give my as-harsh-as-I-
can-make-it-lights-out-and-get-to
-sleep speech. Matt, as you would
'expect, 'is grinning but 'riot quite
from ear to ear. After the forty-
second time he's: just about..fig-
ured out that I'm just a'funning
them. But he's not absolutely,
dead positive certain that this
time isn't the real thing. I'm the
grown up and he's not taking
anything I say for granted. He's a
tad intimidated. Isn't that so
much better than the fourteen
year olds you see on "Silver
Spoons" who are telling everybody
in the family and everybody on,
the show and everybody at the
network what to do? .Matthew
White, for me, is a breath of fresh
air.
And I haven't even gotten to
the best part yet.
I pass Matt in the car or see
him downtown or at the ball field
and he doesn't just kind'a throw
up one hand and say, "Hey, Mr.
Kesley," No sire, he gets that
hand high up in the air and he's
waving it, to beat the band. And
what a beautiful grin! Along
about the forty-second time I run
into him like this, it begins to
dawn on me this kid is not just
saying 'hello, he's not just being


polite, he's not performing a duty
- he is genuinely, honestly,
openly glad to see me! It's as if I
made his day by just crossing his
path. I know it tickled him -just
to look at that smile. He really
likes me!
My goodness, if we had a
world full of Matthew Whites.......
F I think about'the days that I
start out on the wrong side of the
bed. Or I'm so worried about
something I couldn't change if I
was a'mind to that people walk by
and I don't even see them. Or I
throw up a hand, say a perfunc-
tory "howdy" and move on. Likely
as not, I get the same greeting in
return.
You know what usually gets
me "out of sorts"? It's big things.
Like if St. Louis doesn't win the
night before. Or if I can't find that
big white bath towel and I've got
to dry off on that puny, little ma-
roon one. I get to talking and not
paying attention and ppor, too
much milk on my Crispix. Lewis
,Grizzard writes a story that I was
just about to do. I can't find the
flipper for the TV.........big things.
And guess who we can some-
times be the most brisk with?
How about your family? Or your.
closest friends? I love those morn-

Parting With An Old Friend IsA Tough Tas to Perform


I BURIED A LONG-TIME old
friend this past week. This partic-
ular old friend had been around
for me for a little over 40 years,
so it was a sad occasion when we
had to part company, even
though she had not been used for
at least 10 years.
It was an emotional thing
when a guy from Atlanta, on a
search for Linotype parts caine by
looking for some good ones two
weeks ago, to replenish a stock
which is unavailable any longer,
except through cannibalized ma-
chines..
My old Linotype machine has
been sacrificed so others may re-
main alive and live a useful life. I
started to refuse to part with the
old machine, but I thought of the
thousands of people now walking
around with transplanted hearts
who would not be if everyone was
as selfish as I was first inclined to
be.
You know, of course, that to
an old Linotype operator, like my-


self, a Linotype machine is a liv-
ing, breathing, hunk of pig iron
machinery. It has a mind of its
own. It spells words. It completes
sentences. It furnishes well-
turned phrases when the opera-
tor can't think of one.
You laugh! You scoff at these
statements! That's only because
you have never operated a Lino-
type.
MY OLD. LINOTYPE was
nearly 50 years old and it would
still set type with the best of
them. The man who cannibalized
it for parts kept repeating things


like, "this is a well-maintained
machine These parts are in ex-
cellent condition This machine is
as good as newly"
How many other 50-year-old
machines can you say this
about?
The Linotype was a marvql of'
a machine. When I stopped set-
ting type on mine, about 10 or 12
years ago, there were Linotype'
machines which had been made
back before the turn of the centu-
ry, still operating every day. They.
stayed with you. There were
many of the machines which were
in their third generation of opera-


tors, still turning out type like a
new one.
I don't suppose there will ever
be another machine like it. One
that does a precision job, making
type on slugs of metal with toler-
ances of measurement in the 10-
thousands of an inch, line after
line, year after year, with no vari-
ation.
THERE'S SOMETHING
about the keyboard which sticks
with you and ruins you for
operating typewriters or computer
keyboards.
.There are 90 keys on a Lino-
type, 15 rows of six keys each. A
good operator knows these keys
intimately. They are placed in or-
der, thusly: etaoin; shrdlu;
cmfwyp; vbgkqj; xz ff fffi em-
space. The keyboard is in 'three
sections, with the lower case let-
ters in the left section, the punc-
tuation and figures in the middle
and the capitals on the right.
That huge, hulking machine


took the choice spot back in The
Star's print shop. It had the
choice spot because it was the
center of production. When it
stopped, everything stopped.
When it wasn't happy, there was
nothing happy in the shop
THE STAR'S LINOTYPE al-
most,seemed to have a mind of
its own. It definitely had a per-
sonality.
Every Monday morning, I
went over the machine with a
dust cloth and an oil can. With-
out fail. The first of every month,
I filled and tightened down the
grease fittings. It kept the ma-
chine, humming and was the
prime reason for it not showing
its age.
I cleaned and polished space
bands every two days. These mar-
vels of engineering, served as
wedges in the lines of type and
would be forced up into the line
of molds tight enough to keep the
'hot lead from squirting out be-


tween the molds when the line
was cast. It did this all day long,
eight lines a minute, for hours on
end, so everything had to be kept
just so to prevent problems.

THE FORMER owner of The
Star purchased the Linotype in
our shop, new, back in 1948. It
was to have turned out type for at
least 75 years with virtually no
problems, but the system of set-
ting type changed and stopped a
long and promising career in
type-setting, cold.
Cold type that is.
The rest of the machine,
which amounted to about a
couple tons of pig iron, has been
busted up into scrap metal. What
was once an engineering marvel
is now occupying a scrap heap,
right in the middle of its most
productive years. But time
marches on and we can't stand in
its way-even with legends like
the Linotype.

Spring Has Finally Sprung
Spring is the most beautiful and enjoyable time of the year to
me. There's something about spring that marks a new beginning; a
time to go forth and accomplish something, especially. something
outside.
I was reminded of my youth this morning as the first true day-
of spring finally showed itself. The sun was shining, there was little
wind blowing'and birds were singing in the trees outside our kitch-
en window. It was cool, but not cold; warm but not hot and the sun
was shining down on green grass and tress that were beginning to
bloom.
I suddenly had the urge to go outside and work in the garden.
The only problem was, I don't have.a garden to work in.
We had a garden at Route #3, Box 486, Pensacola, Florida,
though. And when I was a lad the last thing I wanted to do was
work in it. My thoughts in those days were of other, more romantic
things like Joyce Boyd and Marie Sanders, two of my secret loves in
Junior high.
But there were other thoughts, too. It was the beginning of
baseball season and my heart raced when I thought about the.
home runs that I might hit during the coming season. This would
be the season, I was always sure, that I would come of my own and
be a star. Joyce and Marie would be mine without the asking when
I became a star.
Spring always marked the beginning of the camping season. We
Boy Scouts attended meetings year-round, but with the approach of
summer, we began planning our summer activities, especially the
two-week camp-out at Little Big Heart, a Boy Scout camp located in
nearby Santa Rosa County. The Girl Scout camp was located a long
run down the beach from Little Big Heart and there was always the
chance that we might get,a chance to slip off and visit it late one
night We never did, but the expectation was most of the fun.
Although I didn't cherish the smell then, but there was some-
thing sacred about freshly plowed soil; that and freshly cut grass.
The smell of either now brings back a rush of fond memories of a
simple.and enjoyable way of life.
I wouldn't swear to it, but I believe we slept better with the win-
dows open and fresh air circulating than we do now. Nights became
almost unbearable later in the summer, but in the early spring it.
was awfully comfortable with the cool, gentle breeze blowing in the'
roomat night
The smell from the kitchen seemed to permeate the air for sev-
eral hundred yards around the house. Sometimes when we were
working in t e garden we could smell the delicious aroma of fried
pork chops, 'peas and okra and cornbread cooking almost to the far
side of the 10 acres we worked. Those were days when our appe-
tites weren't spoiled by candy bars and cokes. We ate food of sub-,
stance and had a homemade cake or pie for dessert.
And there was the smell of the barnyard that was so repulsive
to me in those days. the unmistakable smell of horse sweat and cow
and horse manure was a sign of spring and a hot summer to come.
The warmer the weather, the more pronounced the barnyard smell
became.
All in all, it was a wonderful life, living on a farm during spring.
I wish I could do it one more time.

to the
Editor

To the Editor:
As PTA officers, we read with
some concern your editorial of
April 1.
We feel' that we should tell
you that the men whom you say
have "argued, filibustered,. and
bullied" are known to us as kind
and dedicated volunteers who
have given their time unselfishly
to our school system.
Whatever our personal opin-
ions are on the establishment of a
separate middle school, our opin-
ions on the two gentlemen whose
motives you have questioned are
the same. We have appreciated
their volunteer time, their dedica-
tion to our school and to our PTA,
and we are grateful that they
have chosen to commit so much
of their time to Issues' that in-
volved the improvement of educa-
tion of Gulf County children.
Sincerely,
Bob Bearden, President

To the Editor:
I was glad to see The Star rep-
resented at the April 6 School
board meeting. However, I do
take issue with The Star's cover-
age of that meeting, specifically,
"Mike Crocker and School Board
Member James Hanlon on one
side and the rest of the Board,
their legal advisor and the audi-
ence on the other side, concern-
Ing the legality of the District Ad-
visory Council and the School
Advisory Council, their make-up
and their meeting practices."
(Star newspaper of April 8, 1993).
You stated that my motion to
abolish the councils was not sec-
onded. This is not correct Had
your reporter remained for the
rest of the meeting,, you could
have correctly reported that -
James Hanlon made the motion
that the DAC and SAC not hold
any further meetings until (1) pol-
Icies and procedures were put
Into place (by the Board) and (2)
The Team from DOE comes in to
see if we're right. (DOE will con-
duct a public workshop on 4/13/
93 from 10 'til 2, at my request).
My motion carried. I later
withdrew my motion after being
told by the SB attorney that,' we
could lose major funding for non-
compliance with State Mandates
by missing the June 30 closing
date for School Improvement
Plans.
I found that one a little "hard
to swallow"' corningng from" .the
Board Attorney, particularly since
I wrotehim ,on,.March 9. 1993
and said, 'This non-compliance
with State Mandates could result
in major funding cuts from the
State for our District. I further
stated "If we sustain major fund-
ing cuts because of the Superin-
tendent's actions or in-actions, I
will hold hinm directly responsible
for that loss. Section 229.592 (4).
(C)L F.S.. *
Now, one month later the
Board Attorney is saying, it will
be the School Board's fault or
more specifically, James Hanlon's
fault.
I don't think so. My letter to'
S.B. Attorney clarly stated that if
Administration thought they were
going to shove '-three years of
State Mandates into three
months and expect the S.B., to
pass it on through, they are
wrong!
First of all, there exists two
Journal complaints from S.B. Dis-
trict 3: 1 Ms. Beverly Crocker,
Member School Improvement
Team for Highland View and 2 -
Mr. Mike Crocker, Member Dis-
trict Advisory Council. Both com-
plaints .cite irregularities in both
the SAC and the DAC. I have veri-
fied these irregularities.
Until these complaints are re-
solved, the Board cannot approve
any School Improvement Plans.
To do so would be to defraud the
Dept of Education.
Secondly, we must realize
"Change is not necessarily desira-
ble,: nor is it undesirable, but itis
Inevitable." Whether we like it or
not is moot because Blueprint
2000 is the law and the S.B. is re-
sponsible for that law. The S.B.
cannot safely contest or ignore
the statutes affecting )it even
though all the people in the Dis-
trict should favor such a course
of action.
What the Board can do is ap-
ply for a waiver from the State
stating that, we can be in full
,compliance by 1994-1995 and get
ion with the task. We need to ad-
dress the issues, not who did
what wrong.
Numerous letters, editorials,
etc. have appeared in The Star
concerning Blueprint 2000 and
the DAC and SAC. Yet on March
9, I wrote you a letter and re-
quested you publish my letter to
S.B. Attorney so as to clarify my
position on this issue. You chose
not to publish it Our community
deserves the right to hear both
sides of the issue without cen-
sure.
Sincerely,
Janmes L. Hanlon, Sr.
School Board District 3
[Ed Note-James, you ARE a
piece of work! You have chastised
me for not reporting your meeting
correctly, then filibustered about


three-fourths of the subJect of
your letter about things which
weren't even discussed at the
SI meeting. Excuse me, they weren't
discussed at that part of the
meeting our reporter attended.'


election of members to the Board of Trustees. One post on
the Trustee Board is being contested at Saturday's elec-
tion. Veteran former member L. L.' Lanier is opposing in-
cumbent Trustee Rev. Charles Pettis. Lanier is asking for
a return to the Board after several years' absence.
Two other members of the Board have had their terms
expire but are not opposed in their bid for a return to of-
fice. These are Lowrey H. Wilhite of the White City dis-
trict and George E. Jones, representing the rest of Gulf
County served by the Co-op.
Everyone is invited to attend the special day of festivi-
ty and socializing.


I wouldn't answer your letter
if it were not such an obvious at-
tempt to get your pet argument
across through quotations from
your dealings with your attorney,
real or imagined. We never men-
tioned your alleged letters and
didn't intend to. You may buy ad-
vertising to publicize them unless
they are part of an open meeting.
As for the matter at hand-
whether or not your motion re-
ceived a second-our reporter
stayed at the meeting from 9:00


a.m. until noon. Your motion was
made, to the best of her recollec-
tion, around 11:00 a.m. It had
not received a second at the time
she left and was reported to us as
never being received until nearly
2:00 p.m. We found out later that
a second had been made, but it
was made long after we had to
have the notes to write a story
and long after a reasonable per-
son would. assume a motion
should have died for lack of a sec-
ond.]

CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM

Lead Poisoning

Causes Decreases

In Child's I.Q.

'By
... "-.- Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.


Why the concern about elevated levels of blood lead?
Continuing study has shown that even small elevations of blood
lead cause decreases in a child's I.Q. (intelligence quotient -.or ba-
sic intelligence).
For years we have known that a child who had severe and pro-
longed lead poisoning would probably be retarded, but only recently
researchers have found even slight elevations of lead to cause a de-
crease in Intelligence.
In October 1991 the CDC (Communicable Disease Center) low-
ered the recommendations for treating elevated lead levels from 25
to 10 micrograms/dl.
Judging from the lead levels obtained from patients in our area
I do not believe we have, a problem here. The greatest problems
come from large urban areas with "old housing. Children will eat
anything, and that includes paint chips and lead impregnated plas-
ter. Lead can be absorbed through the respiratory tract during re-
modeling when old plaster walls are torn down and removed. Fami-
lies have been known to burn old car .batteries for heat The lead
from these old batteries is vaporized and much more readily ab-
sorbed from breathing it in than from eating paint or plaster.
Amateur or professional potters who have made pottery and
glazed it at an insufficient heat will find the lead leaching through
and being absorbed by those using the items in serving food. The
soil in playgrounds near roadways has often been lead contaminat-
ed when cars use gasoline containing lead.
Moonshine whiskey is another source of lead ingestion, and
some people may still have lead pipes carrying their water supply.
People who do soldering are exposed to lead.
These example will give you points to check out in your house-
hold and with your children. If in doubt get a blood lead level. .

there. Consumers need to follow
safety measures- when handling
and preparing food. Illness and
even death can occur when food
products are mishandled or,
aren't properly prepared.
Because raw meat and poul-
try naturally contain bacteria,
they should be maintained in a
refrigerator at a temperature be-
low 40 degrees Fahrenheit.
These foods should not be
eaten raw. Consumers should
thoroughly cook a meat product
before eating it. A cooking tem-
perature of 160 degrees Fahren-
heit is advised.
To cook the product at the,
appropriate temperature, use a'
meat thermometer or remember
the following tips:
*Poultry cook it until the
meat is white. And don't eat it if
you see blood or pink meat.
*Hamburger again, watch
for traces of pink in the center, or
blood in the juices.
*Steaks can be safely

ty of commercial landings of pom-
pano is made in Florida waters,
primarily in the Gulf of Mexico. It
is harvested year round, but the
peak season is December to April.
Not a large species, the com-
mon market size for pompano is
from 1/2 to 3 pounds, with an
average of 1 to 2 pounds. It is
usually marketed whole, drawn,
or in fillets.
Florida pompano is excellent
for broiling, baking and planking,
as well as pan and deep-frying. It
is classified as a "fat" fish, mean-
ing that it has more than 5 per-
cent oil content.

Easter Bunny Visits PSJ


There were happy faces every-
where when the Easter bunny
came to Port St 'Joe at the re-
quest of the residents of Bay St.
Joseph Care Center. The Bunny
reported that there were lots of
hugs and Happy Easter wishes
from everyone he came in contact
with.
The Easter Bunny left behind
dozens of colorful eggs that the
residents hunted at their Easter


party.
He also had a chance to en-
courage children at K.I.D.S. to eat
their carrots that they just hap-
pened to be eating for lunch that
day.
The local hospital, schools
and even some children in their
yards got a visit from the friendly
rabbit.
Bay St. Joseph hopes every-
one had a wonderful and joyous
Easter.

Motorists Face Fines for Not Wearing Safety Belts


Florida motorists who do not
currently wear safety belts can
expect a citation in coming weeks
under a plan announced by the
Florida Highway Patrol to in-
crease safety belt compliance.
Florida Highway Patrol Direc-
tor Ronald H. Grimming an-
nounced a three-week-long "blitz"
to 'increase safety belt usage
among Florida motorists. Begin-
ning Sunday, April 11, the Flori-
da Highway Patrol will start an
intensive campaign of education,
followed by stepped-up enforce-


ment to raise seat belt use from
its current rate of 61 percent to
the national goal of 70 percent es-
tablished during the National Op-
eration Buckle Down campaign.
"Although Florida traffic
deaths decreased slightly last
year, another 600 lives could pos-
sibly have been saved if we could
convince all motorists to wear
safety belts" said Grimming.
'That's why increasing safety belt
compliance is so important to not
only the patrol but law enforce-
mentagencies statewide," he add-


ed.
During the first week, the life-
saving message will be delivered
to- the motoring public through
public information resources
such as media releases and
broadcast public service an-
nouncements statewide. Public
Information and educational ef-
forts will be an integral part ,of
the three-week effort.
Stepped-up enforcement will
begin during the second week
with troopers issuing written

Hammond spoke to the Club
as an example of what young
elected officials do. He.spent all of
10 minutes telling the whole sto-
ry. Later, they were to follow him
to Gulf Coast Community College
and do a story on that phase of
his life.
Hammond told the Club that
within 30 days, the County would
receive design figures on the esti-
mated cost of the White City wa-
ter system and would be ready to
call for bids. The system is being
built with a combination of state
grants and borrowed money and
will furnish White City with a
supply of safe drinking water and
a dependable supply for fighting
fires.
Hammond covered such sub-
jects as a softball field for White
City, a new fire truck for St. Joe
Beach, and the trend the County
is taking in planning for the dis-
posal of solid waste on into the
next century. "It'll more than like-

said. Hammond said the County
was beginning to take a new look
at a different method to finance
rural fire departments within the
County.


utes in the United States. Law en-
forcement and the public in gen-
eral obviously find this trend
unacceptable. What we fail to re-
alize, however, is that a traffic fa-
tality occurs every 14 minutes in
the United States and the public's
chances of being seriously in-
jured as a result of a traffic crash
is significantly greater than. from
violent crime.

'The motoring public should
recognize this risk and how they
can minimize their chances of be-
ing seriously injured -if they are
involved in an auto crash. We
hope that during this enforce-
ment blitz that those who still are
not wearing safety belts will final-
ly be convinced of their lifesaving
potential," concluded Grimming.

HOW TO PUT DROPS
IN YOUR EYES
Of course the easiest way is to have someone else put the
drops in your eyes for you. It is not difficult to do it yourself.
First tilt your head as far back as possible, or lie flat on your
back.
Then, look up at the ceiling. Close one eye and center the
dropper over the other and squeeze the drops into the eye.
, Finally, close your eye and gently massage for a few
A strokes. Do not touch the dropper to your eye. This may
contaminate the remaining drops.

"A GREAT MANY PEOPLE ENTRUST US with their prescriptions, health
needs and other pharmacy products. We consider this trust a privilege
and a duty. May we be your personal family pharmacy?"

Gators Win In

Extra Innings
WEWAHITCHKA 3
SNEADS 2
The Wewahitchka Gators won
their seventh conference baseball
game Tuesday afternoon, as they
edged the Sneads Pirates with an
extra-inning nail-biter. Will Sum-
ner slapped a single into left field
to drive in Andy Clayton with the
winning run in the bottom of the
10th inning to end what had been
a pitchers' duel between Casey
Kelley and Jeremy Pridgeon com-
bining for an eight hitter, while
Sneads' hurler, Eric Edge gave up
10 hits to the Gators.
Pridgeon picked up the win in
relief and now owns a 3-5 record.
Kelly struck out eight, walked
four and gave up eight hits in his
nine innings on the mound.
The score was tied 1-1 going
into the tenth. Sneads' Luke Ar-
nold homered off reliever Prid-
geon and things looked glum for
the Gators as the Pirates took a
one run lead, which looked huge
in the tenth inning. But, in their
-half ofthe tenth, Tranum McLe-
fiford iWalked and was doubled
home by Clayton. Edge then is-,
sued an intentional walk to Beau
Whitfleld, the District's leading
home run hitter, and Tommy Ga-
skin loaded the bases with a little
dribbler in the infield. Then came
Sumner's huge single to score
Clayton and win the game.

overall.

FLUNKING THE

ACID TEST


It's the acid in your mouth
that causes tooth decay. Once
acid eats a hole in the enamel of
a tooth, bacteria have a field
day in making the hole bigger
and destroying the tooth, unless
treated in time.
Even prehistoric humans
had this problem. But the prob-
lem became much worse when
man began eating sweetened
foods. Bacteria thrive on sugar.
They multiply by the millions,
producing acid in'the process,
the acid that eats away at un-
protected teeth.
Laboratory tests on animals
raised in a germ-free environ-
ment showed that they can eat
unlimited amounts of sugar and


never develop a cavity. But
once exposed to the kind of bac-
teria that live in human mouths,
the tooth decay becomes ram-
pant. Even the Eskimos had few
problems with tooth decay until
they started eating sweetened
foods.
Cutting down on sugar in-
take will help prevent decay, so
will fluoride treatments, and reg-
ular dental checkups. They can
help you flunk the acid test and
save your teeth.

Potassium...It's An Important Element


for Your Body and Your Garden


Potassium deficiency can be
a serious health problem for peo-
ple. The same is true for plants,
especially some of our favorite
woody ornamentals. Unfortunate-
ly, potassium deficiency in plants
is rather tricky to diagnose. In
fact, some of your prized land-:
scape specimens might suffer
from this ailment for quite some
time before you would suspect
danger.
As we all know, plants ire-
quire a balanced diet of essential'


nutrients for good health Includ-
ing potassium. A shortage of this
element can be a serious plant
problem that's seldom recognized
in the early stages. Plants can tol-
erate a substantial shortage of
potassium for quite a while before
physical symptoms appear. *To
complicate matters, even when
you suspect a potassium problem
you can't be sure just by looking.
Several other nutrient deficiend-
cies produce similar symptoms.
So what's the -answer? That's
what we'll talk about.


A common symptom of potas-
slum deficiency is interveinalK
chlorosis of the leaves, a yellow-
ing of tissue betweenn the leaf
veins. Later, leaf drop may,occur.
And eventually, limbs' and
branches may die. Unfortunately,
these aren't positive clues to a po-
tassium problem. As Isaid, other
nutrient shortages .may cause
similar signs. This is cause for
caution, because treaUinA one de-
ficiency when the problem ,is real-'
]y another, will only make mat-,

Commodity Distribution

Set for April 20 and 22
U.S.D.A. commodities will be distributed In Gulf County on April
20th and 22nd to those who are eligible. Eligibility Is based on total
household income'not in excess of the state-established maximum per-
centage of the poverty line for the appropriate household size. Recipients
will receive two (2) months commodities on these dates, therefore it is
very important that everyone bring a bag or box.
The distribution will take place in Port St. Joe and Wewahitchka at
the Senior Citizens' buildings. The distribution In Port St. Joe will be on
Tuesday, April 20th. from 1:00 until 3:00 p.m. ET. In Wewahitchka, it
will be on Thursday, April 22nd, from noon until 2:00 p.m. CT. Recip-
ients must have a current commodity card to receive their commodities.
There will be no registration at the distribution centers. If anyone has
questions concerning their eligibility, they should call 227-1735, 639-
5068. or come by the Commodity Office in the Gulf County Courthouse
prior to these dates. Wewahitchka residents may come to the Old Court-
house on Wednesday, April 21st, from 12:30 to 4:30 p.m. CT, to certify
for commodities. To certify or re-certify you will need to bring proof of in-
come or food stamp papers.
"Acceptance and participation" in the program is the same for every-
one without regard to race, color, national origin, age, sex, or handicap.

ters worse. You should have a
positive diagnosis before taking
any action. In short, it's better to
be safe than sorry.
If you suspect a potassium
deficiency, you should have a reli-
able specialist test your soil to de-
termine exactly what the problem
fA. If the test shows a lack of po-
tassium, any of several optional
treatment should correct the de-
ficiency. You can use a common
garden fertilizer, such as 8-8-8....
a high analysis fertilizer, such as
16.4-8,....or, you can supply just
the potassium by using a com-
pound such as potassium sulfate.
If you_decide to use a basic
garden fertilizer, apply it four
times a year at the rate of two to
four pounds for every 100 square
Feet of soil. A high analysis ferti-


THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, APRIL 15, 1993 PAGE 3B

Florida Garden

Extension Notes
By
Roy Lee Carter
Gulf County Extension Service


lizer also should be applied four
times per year. But, use only half
as much one or two pounds
per 100 square feet.
Experienced gardeners may
question the use of high analysis
fertilizers. Theoretically, the high
nitrogen content in a high analy-
sis fertilizer could aggravate po-
tassium deficiency symptoms.
However, in the landscape, this
rarely is a problem. Most Florida
soils could benefit from increased
-nitrogen. So, it's okay to use a
high analysis fertilizer to treat a
potassium deficiency.
If you want to use a single
potassium compound, such as
potassium sulfate, apply it at a


rate that will supply the same
amount of potassium that's found
in an 8-8-8 fertilizer. This will
come out to about a half a pound
of the mixture for a 100 square
foot area. Again, four applications
per year are recommended.
Remember, potassium defi-
ciency symptoms are easily con-
fused with other problems. And,
treating for a lack of potassium
when the ailment actually results
from some other nutrient short-
age will only aggravate the situa-
tion. So, before you treat, have
your soil tested. If a potassium
.deficiency does exist, apply the
proper fertilizer or potassium
compound, as we've suggested.

"The hiring of a lawyer is an important decision that should not be
based solely upon advertisements. Before you decide, ask us to send
you free information about our qualifications and experience."
S.TFC /1024/91i


Some people are fed up with the boredom of singing the "First, Second,
and last stanza" of the same old songs every time they attend church.
They wonder why Christians are supposed to be "dead serious" about
everything. .

ARE YOU ONE?
If God did not expect us to do it,
why did He cause it to be written
in the Bible that we are to rejoice
If you are fed up with the sham of the same old routine, check out
a church called The Rock. I think you will be glad you did.


A place where you will never
be judged by your color, your
looks, your clothes, your edu-
cation, nor any other non-
.senDse. 1
