St. Joe Forest Products Company took. another step to-
ward modernization this week, when they completed a pro-
ject of automation in their pulp mill.
For years the digesters, which begin the paper making;
process with cooking of the wood chips have been filled
arid sealed up by hand. This week, all ten batch digesters
at the mill have been equipped with automatic capping
valves,-replacing the old caps which had to be sealed by an
operator, such as K. 0. Wilkerson is doing, in the photo
above. Wilkerson is shown sealing up the lid on No. 1
batch digester for the last time.
This is part of an automation project at the pulp mill
that will modernize, the controls in the digester room and
washroom.
The goal of the modernization undertaking, is to reduce
variation in pulp characteristics and thus improve the
quality of lirierboard due to a more consistent quality of the
product.

Counties Need to Reach An Agreement


Newspapers from all across the Judicial Cir-
cuit are getting all discombobulated because it
is taking so long to employ the services of a
new Medical Examiner to perform the duties
which are required by law and necessary. Some
activity which is necessary shouldn't take as
long to get done as those which are not neces-
sary.
The 14th Judicial Circuit has been without
Medical Examiner services for a long time now
and have put a make-shift service into place to
serve until a new service can be initiated and
cranked up.
State Attorney Jim Appleman has been
named to head up a committee to secure the
services of a qualified person or persons to that
position. This has the Panama City News-
Herald's panties in a wad because they think
Appleman could use his position to curry or de-
mand favors of the person or persons hired.
That's sort of the type thing which has delayed
the choosing so long. Nobody wants to take the
lead, nor does anybody approve of anyone else
taking the lead in the matter.
Well, somebody's got to do it! It had just as
well be Appleman who makes the search and
the selection as anybody else. The State Attor-
ney, of necessity, must work with the Medical
Examiner as much or more than anyone else.
Why not get one which will be compatible with
the set-up we have?
Surely Appleman won't mess up as bad as
the last one to make a selection for the Circuit.
There hasn't been many people selected for
anything in the Circuit who has caused as


much suspicion and public unrest as the re-
cent doctor in the Medical Examiner's office.
We don't see the big deal in objection to Apple-
man getting the job of searching for a candidate
and making an appointment.

. We will agree that the office has been va-
cant too long. We think it is because nobody
has taken the task upon themselves to find a
replacement. There has been nobody pushing a
plan of paying for the service, but a plan must


be devised. Jim Appleman did take it upon
himself a couple of months ago to suggest that
each county in the system consider subscribing
to a full time Examiner, rather than a part-
time service and pay for the service on a per
capital rate. Much like other cooperative servic-
es. Appleman suggested that all counties in the
District pay the same per capital fee and receive
the same services.
If there is any delay in getting the agree-
ment rolling, it is because the various Commis-


sions from the six counties involved are drag-
ging their feet. We can understand their
wanting to wait until a new budget year, but
they need to get cracking-now-if they are
even going to have th6 system in place at the
new budget year. There is still a lot to do to get
an agreement written out and accepted by all
the counties.
So, let's quit quibbling over who is assigned
or who accepts the responsibility of leading the
cooperative effort and just get it done.


We're Doing It Right, After All


Well, well, well. Gulf County isn't in such a
bad predicament after all. In spite of what
James Hanlon says, the County School Board
is just about as far along with their Blueprint
2000 plans as almost every other County in
the state, despite his claim that the sky is going
to fall in if Gulf County doesn't have their plan,
signed, sealed and delivered by July. The
County's direction for naming and operating
their Committee and the District Advisory
Board is also right on target and operating as it
should.
We have this information from no less. than
the Florida School Board Association, who con-
ducted a workshop here in the County April
13-and not the Department of Education, as
School Board Member James Hanlon claims-
to inform the Board on the proper method to
continue their operation.


Hanlon spent only a short while at the
meeting. We suppose that was because he
didn't want his opinion colored by facts.
The visiting School Board Association could
only be invited by the County Superintendent
or the School Board Chairman, Mrs. Charlotte
Pierce. In this case, Mrs. Pierce actually did the
inviting; not Mr. Hanlon, as he claimed.
The Committee came for the purpose of
erasing any misunderstanding because the
State had not done so in the little more than a
year that Blueprint 2000 has been in the pro-
cess of preparation. Until now, there have been
very few people who knew precisely which step
to take. To give them credit, Gulf County
School Board sent David Bidwell to several
meetings to ascertain as much informatio6n.as
was revealed. Bidwell reported regularly to the
local Board, which followed the guidelines as


best they could on the information Bidwell was
able to glean from the meetings.
Come to'find out, they were right on target,
regardless of what Mr. Hanlon has, been
preaching and the direction he has been at-
tempting to lead. Actually, there are three ways
to conduct the introduction of 'local schools
into Blueprint 2000 with Gulf County following
only one of the three sets of direction.
Mr. Hanlon has been arguing with the
School Board attorney, the Superintendent, the
Chairman-and, yes, the editor of the Star in
his one-man crusade. Perhaps now, after the
visit of the: Florida School Board Association
representatives, and their explanation of the
proper way to proceed, Mr. Hanlon will sit back
and be a part of those who wish to do things
right, and not serve as a one-man wrecking
crew. I

This is going to be a short
story. I haven't been' to many
proms. We had to call it the jun-.
ior-senior prom back when I was
in schoqklhecause we couldn't get
enoughCfolks up out of one class
to! have-a" dance. I almost went
my junior year. And I've spent a
lifetime wishing I had! That was
the year Mary E. Pendleton fell
out across the food table. Mary
E.'s weight was a bit too
much.......they said later that
those little hot dog sausages were
rolling all over the floor.
Lefty Wiggleton and the band,
not one to let an opportunity
pass, immediately broke into:
Ooee Gooee was a worm,
A big fat worm was he.
He crawled up on the railroad
track,
The train he did not see.
Oh, Ooee Gooee
Ooee Gooee at the hop,
Having himself a ball.
He crawled out on the dance
room floor,
But he never reached the
wall.
Oh, Ooee Gooeee.......
Mrs. Finsterwall tried to save'
the punch bowl and near 'bout
drowned. Mary E. couldn't get up.


Proms I Have Known


She had a couple of those pimlen-
to and cheese fingerettes stuck to
her face. "Mary E." I heard Yogi
never even smiled as he looked
down on her, "if you'd a'just
asked, I'd a'passed you a sand-
wich."
Ricky Gene and Buddy and
Printiss Ray in all the confusion
got to chunking those Swedish
meatballs at LaRenda Bradfield's
floor length white gown. Mr. War-
ren meant to turn the gym lights
on, but in his haste, he turned
what 'few lights that were on --
off. Lefly arid the boys struck up;,
A Walk On The Wild Side.
Folks, the crowd went over
the edge.
When they finally got the
lights back on LaRenda had
Ricky Gene by the throat, she'd
already flattened Buddy with a
silver meat tray and she was
reaching for Printiss Ray. Printiss
had a little speech problem when
everything was normal. He was
doing some serious stuttering
now......
Mary E. had just scooted
down the broken table a ways so
she could reach the cauliflower
and dip. Mrs. Finsterwall was.
now wearing her bouffant hair do
down around her ankles. And you
know those two fake palm trees
that had been brought in.so your
picture would look like your prom
was in Hawaii? Hollis Mayo had
attempted to climb one of them. It
had broken off about a foot from
the gym floor and Hollis had been
rendered unconscious from the
fall.


The theme for the prom that
year was "An Enchanting Evening
on Paradise Isle."
For years afterwards, we re-
ferred to it as "Guadalcanal."
Folks, I was the first guy to
sign up for the prom my senior
year. Shoot, I thought you just
danced at those things or I'd
a'gone the year before. I didn't
have a suit but my cousin
Charles was about the same size
as me so that worked out.
I was figuring on asking La-
Renda until I found out she was'
a'going with Don Melton.. Pamf.:
dragged -me, over -in -a comer!'at
lunch. "Look, LaRenda really
wants to go with you, but she
was afraid that Martin was going
to ask her and you know she
couldn't go with him so Don
kind'a helped her out of a tight
spot but if she had known that
you were even going to go, she
would have waited and if Don
gets up with Wanda at the prom
'cause you know they really like
each other then maybe ya'll can
get together." She patted my arm.
"I hope it all works out for you."
To this day I haven't figured
out exactly what Pam was telling
me.
I took Belinda Carpenter to
the prom. She played baseball
with us and she didn't eat much.
She was also from a town about
twenty miles away. Boy howdy,
that made every girl in our high
school mad.
Buddy and Yogi stopped by
the afternoon of the prom.

April 15: A Rainy, Dreary Day In More Ways Than One


IT WAS FITTING that it
rained and was generally a dreary
day last Thursday, April 15. It
went right along with the season.
Last Thursday was income tax fil-
ing day. Uncle Sam says, without
fail, you shall file your taxes on
that day, each year, or forever-
more regret it -
There weren't many smiles
evidenced on that day, as people
were feeling just naturally dreary
over having their taxes due and
payable for so few benefits availa-
ble to the working stiff.
We had double digit bad
newq Thursday, as it was also re-
vealed on that day that it was
taking 132 days this year to earn
enough money to pay local, state
and federal taxes due. That's a
third of a year of work, just to pay
taxes. Ouchl That hurts
Not only was it revealed that
it took that many days to pay our
taxes, it was also revealed that It
took two more days' earnings to
pay them this year over last year.
The more we work, the higher the


taxes become. As. columnist Wal-
ter Williams writes, the govern-
ment is taking our money without
asking and giving it to somebody
else who isn't working.
The ones who are doing the
receiving think that's a great ar-
rangement. Those who are on the
giving end don't think too much
of it.

LISTENING TO THE Marlins
baseball game the other day,
while I was going somewhere in
the car, I was interested in the
announcers talking about tax
day. One announcer, making con-


versation, said something to the
effect that there were thousands
of people searching for receipts,
records, proof of payment for
non-taxable transactions, etc.
The idea was that those filing
their tax returns were interested
in finding documentation to keep
them from paying taxes.
The announcers were proba-
bly correct In their assumption.
People are going to keep from
paying any more taxes than they
are required to.
The thought which came to
me was that, rather than Mr. Joe
Q. Citizen hunting Justification


for a deduction, Mr. Uncle Sam
should be filling out and provid-
ing a list of justifications for ex-
penditures he made with our tax
dollars, which we so generously
supplied him with. After all, they
were our dollars he was using. He
should be required to tell us what
he did with them'.
He should also be required to
present us a receipt for every tax
dollar spent, to set our minds at
ease that the dollars we worked
so hard to earn, weren't wasted.
Uncle Sam should verify the
accountability of his stewardship
of our money.
But he won't,

HOW DID WE EVER allow
this situation to become the stat-
us quo regarding things taxable?
You would think, the way the tax
collecting department acts, that
our money was theirs! You would
think that we should be satisfied
with having second lien on our
salary or earnings.


We.should be accustomed to
that style of spending our money.
Isn't that .the way your wife does
your money? Do you get to han-
dle the paycheck? Do you get to
spend the money? Do you get to
write the check?
Most of us husbands are in
the same boat, we get to make
the big decisions at home. Such
as what color socks do I put on
this morning? and who gets the
front page of the newspaper first.
But, back to taxes.

YOU GET THE privilege of
working two additional days for
the government this year. I don't
know who gets this extra two
days' production of money, but I
do know you and I do not.
Now, we are working two ad-
ditional days to pay taxes and we
haven't had a pay increase over
the past year; what does that tell
.you? It tells me that I will have
less money than last year and
I'm the one who has the responsi-


ability of earning it so some-
body else can have the privilege of
spending it!
There's something wrong
here.
If I'm going to work an addi-
tional two days to earn money to
pay taxes with, I should not. have
to provide a receipt for ever penny
I spend. The one who spends that
extra two days of my labor should
provide a slip for every penny of
my money he spent; proving he
didn't waste it.

I'M EXPECTING A voucher
from the tobacco growers for sub-
sidization; from the Department
of the Interior for ependitures
made or surveys of vwy a grass-
hopper likes grass, or to pay for a
study of why a dog chases cars or
some other such thing which has
mystified us through the ages.
I don't know of anyone Who
has approved expenditures such
as these, but we keep getting
billed for them and more.

Wendell Campbell


The Redneck Newsletter,
Several years ago I heard a story about one of our local game
wardens and an encounter he had with some people in Wewahitch-
ka. This story was told me for the truth and I believe the person
who told me was telling the truth. I don't know about the person
who told' her, though.
Any how, It seems this particular game warden was making his
rounds one day in the Wewahitchka vicinity when he spotted two of
our northern friends (he knew they were Yankees because the man
was wearing a "pineapple" shirt with bermuda shorts and black
socks and dress shoes) fishing from a bridge just outside the city
limits.
Because it was his job, he stopped to check their fishing li-
cense. This Interruption caused the couple considerable discomfort,
so to retaliate the woman said to the warden, 'They tell us there are
some Rednecks who live around here. Can you tell us where we
might find some? We would love to see a few and the places they
live before we go back to Chicago."
'Yes'um," the warden replied. "There are several who live in this
area, but it's a bad time of year for them right now."
"A.bad time of year!" the woman replied. "Why is that?"
'Well,": the warden replied as he handed them back their li-
cense, "it's a bad time during the summer because most all the
Rednecks are up in Chicago teaching school."
Let's face it folks, we have an abundance of Rednecks in Flori-
da. The reason is a person who works outside, drives a pickup
truck with a gun-rack in it and has a dog that rides in the back is
labeled a Redneck. Many of the people I know and call friends could.
be labeled Rednecks and many of them don't work outside. .As a
matter of fact, I come from a long line of Rednecks and am probably
labeled a Redneck myself. If that be the case, so be itl
Because of this and because Rednecks are labeled "country",
"backwards"' "ignorant", and many other unjustified names, I have
decided to start a "Redneck Newsletter." The main purpose will be
to, inform "outsiders" of what 'a real Redneck really is and to keep
the Redneck community Informed of the latest developments in the
Redneck world.
I think it will be fitting and proper to spotlight a Redneck family
in.each issue, telling all about their family and job and their hob-
bies. A picture will be published with the article. The picture will In-
clude the family, their home. truck, collection of guns and their
,dog(s). A few of their in-laws and outlaws might be in the picture,
but it would be their option.
Also included in the newsletter will be the latest Information on
where to purchase things that are important to Rednecks. like used
tires to half-bury In the front yard, CB radios for the truck, unusual
bumper stickers and TV dishes to be mounted in back of the house.
There will also be tips on where to buy weekly insurance, garden
seeds, coon dogs and a variety of other items that are important to
us Rednecks. Let's not forget guns, while we still have the right to
buy them.
All in a#, I think this is a tremendous idea. I probably won't sell
many in the Redneck community, but I'll bet those Yankees will
buy every issue I have printed.
After all, us Rednecks know what we want. You won't find us
up North sightseeing

old Jack Sheffield property and
wished to build office buildings
and buildings to, provide jobs for
people in Port St. Joe.
The Commission said they
had no objections to the aban-

'"We'll have to advertise the in-
tent."
Commissioner Bill Wood ob-
jedted to making a gift of the
property, if the City 'does aban-
'don the road. "There is the equiv-
alent of three downtown lots he
would be getting for free. I; per-
sonally would object to that,"
Wood said. ,' '.


List said he just wanted to
,see if the Commission was agree-
able to closing the street before
he proceeded, since it would have
a major effect on his future plans
for the property.

The Commission also:
-Approved the change' of

--Heard a report of an esti-

According to a report issued
by the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement on April 16, 685 co-
caine related deaths were report-
ed in the state during 1992, the
lowest count since 1987. Cocaine
found in deceased bodies by med-
ical examiners in Florida has ,de-
creased by 16 percent since 1991


and 32 percent since 1988.
The 1992 Annual Report on
Florida cocaine related deaths
shows the trend continued in
1992 for accidents and homicides
to have the highest numbers of
cocaine positive deaths followed
by natural causes, suicides and
undetermined deaths. For the


first time accidents outnumbered
homicides and natural deaths
outnumbered suicides during the
1992 reporting period.
While in general, historically
high cocaine rate areas remained
the same in Florida, there were
some significant drops in cocaine
related deaths in several geo-


Amazed At Objections Over Cheerleader Selection


To the Editor:
I am writing to ydu with
much sorrow for the way our
community displayed their preju-
dices at the recent school board'
meeting. I consider myself a very
fair person, who tries not to judge
people by their skin color or
background. I was extremely
amazed that we had so many.ob-


sections at the meeting on the se-
lection of our cheerleaders this
year.
It is so sad when parents en-
dorse their prejudices and set the
same'examples for their children
to continue into their own life-
time. We have probably all had
children who wanted to be cho-
sen for a team, a club, or a cheer-

It may be a fact, that they'

Do Gulf County Taxpayers re-
quire twice as much legal service?
Is such an abrupt increase in
County Legal Fees considered in
our current budget or will other
County Agencies, i.e., Public
Schools, Public Services and/or
the Sheriffs Department suffer a
budget reduction to facilitate pay-
ment of Mr. Floyd's invoices?
Where will the money come from?
Surely not' from our Contingency
Fund. It should be kept for un-
foreseen emergencies.
It Is incumbent upon an at-
torney to provide a statement of
account on a monthly basis. I
therefore urge that a copy of each
of Mr. Floyd's statements be fur-

It is' impOrtant that the 'Comi-

This 1 just a small part of life-
that everyone must:endure from
time to time, regardless of.their
skin color. To place tokens on the
squads would be unfair to all'
concerned. This would only show
some people will always use prej-
udices as a crutch when they

would destroy their trust in;

We need to instill in young
adults, that crying -and pouting

to be good at any sport. People
need to realize that hard work is
a reward when done right and
will pay off in the end.

Most readers of the ,Panama

Mr. Grizzard's co'mncal columns.
So with this in mind, the televi-

that he is recovering from exten-

number of cocaine deaths in Flor-

larger East Coast areas of Miami,
Fort Lauderdale, Jacksonville,
and West Palm Beach followed by
Orlando and Tampa/St. Peters-
burg. During 1991, however, de-
creases' were noted in Daytona

The .most significant of these was.
in the Gainesville area which had
a 68 percent decrease over the
previous year.
For the first time the Talla-,

during 1991 with 17 cocaine re-

Miami and Jacksonville. _
The Florida Medical Examin-

cocaine related death information
in 1986 in an effort to better as-
sess the huge impact the drug
was having on the citizens of the
state, FDLE. Commissioner Tim
Moore said, "These declining
numbers are encouraging, but we
shouldn't be lulled into thinking
the tragedy of cocaine abuse has
gone away. Public education
must continue, especially in our

FAMOUS LANDMARKS
OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION
Touring Philadelphia' in 1796
Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to Phila-
delphia, the "City of Brotherly Love." Our
totr will begin here in Germantown and take
you over cobblestone streets to the docks of
the largest port in the United States of
America. From there. we will travel to the
State House and the Bank of the United
States. The midday meal will be served at a
local inn before we begin our trek to Christ
Church. I will be your guide to these histori-
cal landmarks which influenced the outcome
of the Revolutionary War.
Philadelphia was founded in 1682 by
William Penn. The city is about one hundred
twenty-nine square, miles and received its
charter in 1699. The people of Philadelphia
were originally Quakers. However, German,
Scots-Irish, and other English colonists have
settled here. They were drawn to this city be-
cause Philadelphia has a policy of religious
tolerance; there are no whipping posts in
this city for people of other religions. The
people here take part it governing the city.
On September 26, 1777, during the Rev-
olution, Philadelphia was captured by the
British. General Howe won the Battle of
Braidywine and took control of this city. He
claimed that taking over the capital would
help Great Britain win the. war. The 'Ameri-

cans tried to recapture Philadelphia here at
the Battle of Germantown. They were not
successful. One might ask how this battle
was important to the outcome of the war
since it was lost. It proved to the British that
the colonists were determined to fight for
their beliefs and that the loss of any one city
or area would only cause the colonists to
move their headquarters to another area and
- continue the fight. On June 18, 1778, Gen-
eral Howe withdrew his troops to keep from
being caught by French ships sent to help
the colonists.
We have now reached the port to which
those same French ships were headed. The
ships you see being loaded with products
from our inland farm areas are bound for
the West Indies. This port Is the center of
the trade industry of the United States. The
ship now arriving is bringing more Immi-
grants to this new country who are hoping
to find prosperity and freedom.
As we travel' to the State House, perhaps
you would like to see this week's copy of the
Pennsylvania Gazette, published by Benja-
min Franklin. Philadelphia has twenty-three
printers and publishers. It is the capital and
largest city in the United States. It is also
the medical center of the new world. Many
physicians from Philadelphia joined the Rev-
olutionary Committee of Safety, which ren-
dered service to the Revolutionary Army.
The red brick building before you may
seem plain, but it has played a major part in
the short history of the United States, Here,
at the State House, the Declaration of Inde-
pendence was drafted and signed. On July
8, 1776, just twenty years ago, the official
public proclamation of independence was
read, and the Liberty Bell, which hangs in
the tower here, rang out the news. The first
and second Continental Congresses met
here to decide whether the colonists should
fight for independence and what form of gov-


ernment would be best for this new country.
On October 14, 1774, the delegates adopted
a declaration of rights that formed the basis
for the Articles of Confederation and the
Constitution of the United States of Amereia.
These included the rights to life, liberty,
property, trial by jury, and representation in
government.
It is now time for the midday meal. Our
stop at the inn will give you a chance to
sample Philadelphia's excellent hospitality.
Cold cider is served to everyone who enters
here. Many residents have changed from
drinking ale or wine to the local cider. Din-
ers may choose from a menu of duck, ham,
chicken, or beef. Also offered aire jellies,
sweetmeats, tarts, fools, trifles, floating is-
lands, whipped sillabubs, cheese, punch,
wine, and ale.
Ladies and gentlemen, our next stop is
the Bank of the United States. The bank was
established in 1791. Its purpose is to coin
money, establish a common currency for ex-
change, 'and to allow our new government to
pay off the national debts. This is being done
through loans and taxes.
Our last stop will be at Christ Church.
Many of our founding fathers worshiped at
Christ Church. On our tour today, you have
seen many individual landmarks within the
city of Philadelphia. However, Philadelphia
itself is a landmark of the Revolution. The
beliefs and philosophies that were practiced
here, such as religious tolerance and govern-
ment by the people, inspired many of the
delegates to the Continental. Congresses.
Stopping here at Christ Church will give you
the opportunity to give thanks to God for
this magnificent country, for the freedom
fought for in the American Revolution, and
for the privilege of being a citizen of the Unit-
ed States of America. May we all pray togeth-
er that this nation will be an example of gov-
ernment by the people, of the people, and for
the people for many centuries to -come.

The last holiday has come and gone, and the last six weeks is
well underway. The final challenge of what has been a good school
year is to finish strong, rather than put it on cruise control. Par-
ents, please stay behind your students to finish strong.
I By the time you read this you should also have read your stu-
dent's report card! They got them Tuesday (4-20). If you haven't
seen yours, please insist on seeing it call the school if you en-
counter a problem.

make this the best ever. Parents and Board Members are welcomed

Rodney Herring


Named to FASC


Paul McLaughlin, Executive
Director of the Florida Associa-
tion of Student councils, an-
nounced this week the appoint-
ment of Rodney Herring to
positions in both of the Associa-
tior's summer leadership work-
shops. The FASC is a branch of
the Florida High School Activities
Association and it coordinates the
activities of all of its member
schools throughout the state.
Herring is the student gov-
ernment adviser for Port St Joe

last summer, and has been ap-
pointed as an Advanced Camp

camp at the Lake Yale Baptist As-
sembly near Ocala. As a member
of, and a'recent presenter at its

better prepare students to face.
the uncertainties of tomorrow
and to provide them with a com-
petitive edge.

the state take part in these,
camps and it is, not necessary

trict and state levels. Recently,

Vice-President School for District

Port St. Joe Hosts Invitational Track Meet


Last Saturday, April 17, Port
St. Joe High School hosted its

from nine schools took part in the

In the girls division, Quincy-

Are You.
Superstitious?
Did anybody ever tell you
that breaking a mirror would give
you seven years of bad luck, or
that if you find a four leaf clover
you will have good luck?
I Well, these are all supersti-
tions, and many people believe in
them. Here are some examples:
*Shooting stars: They signify
good luck, good health, anji a
successful trip for travelers. It is
customary to make a wish when
you see one.
*The shape of the moon: Is it
an upright crescent? Many be-
lieve that shape signifies a wet
month ahead.
*The road .to fame: If a pray-
ing mantis lands on you, you will
soon meet someone famous!
*Finding love with fruit: Next
time you peel an apple and it
doesn't break off, throw it over
your left shoulder. Why? some
people living in New England and
Kentucky claim the peeling will
form the initial of the one you'll
marry. And by the way, they
claim a "red" apple does a better
job.


Placing first in the meet for
Port St. Joe was Cedric Anthony
(137'1").
Placing second was Jeremy
Tull, discus (136'6.5"); Zyris Hill,
long jump (21'7.25"), 400 (50.9).
Placing third was Jeremy


Tull, shot put (45'10"), and Reggie
Jones, high jump (5'10").
Placing fourth was Damien
Byrd, pole vault (9'0"); Chris Oan-
iels, 100 (11.0), 200 (22.2); Chris
Daniels, Reggie Jones, Mario Lar-
ry, Zyris Hill, 400 relay (44.2).

SELF MEDICATION IS
A POTENTIAL DANGER
Even physicians are far from agreement about the
practice of self-medication. If everyone went to their
doctors at every sign of illness it would be impossible for
the medical profession to handle the deluge of patients that
would descend upon them. The more seriously ill would
suffer most for there would not be enough of the time
needed for them.
i But, self-medication must be carried out wisely. One
0 good rule is if certain symptoms keep returning, it is A
time to have your doctor find the cause. When we notice a
customer Js often buying a particular non prescription
remedy we will always suggest that they should see their
doctor.

We accept Medicaid, Blue Cross-Blue Shield, PCS, Con-
sultec (State of FL plan) and most other insurance plans

APALACHlrCOLA 11
Tuesday evening was one of
those days for the Apalachicola
Sharks' which every baseball
team has, where the team can't
seem to do anything correctly.
The Sharks took advantage iof
that night to chalk up their larg-
est score of the season.
The Sharks jumped off to a 3-
1 lead in the first inning, and
went from there. Scoring seven
runs in the third and six in the
seventh fueled the Shark scoring
as' they clubbed 15 hits off Apa-
lachicola pitching.
The Apalachicola team wasn't
exactly idle while all this carnage
was being wreaked on them. A
big six run third inning kept
them in the game past the fifth
inning where the 10-run rule
comes into play. Apalachicola
was busily tagging Shark hurlers
for 12 hits of their own.
Adam Taylor started for the
first time this year and went two
and two-thirds innings before he
was lifted for Jon Elliott in the
third. Eric Ramsey came on in
the seventh to finish the game.
Elliott was credited with the win.
Ryan Yeager led the Shark
hitting, going five for five and two
RBI. Eric Ramsey and David Liffic

esophagus. Because there is local Irritation and burning, the child
will usually riot eat enough of the plant to produce generalized poi-
soning.
Since most of the ingestion problems are caused by mouth and
esophageal burns, the Immediate action should be to wash or rinse
the mouth with water or milk. (The water or milk used should not
be swallowed.) .
After thoroughly washing and rinsing the mouth, popsicles or
ice cream can be given for local soothing.
The child will need to be watched carefully for any breathing
problems.
It is better to prevent any episodes of ingestion by removing the
above named house plants from any house with small children or
where small children may visit. Look around Think Prevent.

lating excessive growth. Leaving
. excess clippings on the lawn after
mowing will add to a thatch prob-
leni. Failure to maintain a favora-
ble soil environment for bacterial
growth increases the rate of
thatch decomposition.
Thatch control requires prop-
er lawn management and, when
necessary, physical thatch remov-
al. Only the minimum amount of
fertilizer for good growth should
be applied. As I said, encourage-
ment of excessive growth should
be avoided. Liming of acid soils
may help increase thatch decom-
position by stimulating bacterial '
action.
Proper watering and mowing
are important. Maximum decom-
position occurs if the soil is
moist, but Is retarded if it's too
wet or too dry. Lawns should al-
ways be mowed at the recom-
mended height and frequency. If
not more than one-fourth to one-
third of the leaf tips are removed
at each mowing, thatch seldom'
Increases.
If thatch becomes a problem,
corrective action should be taken
as soon as a build up is noticed.
One method Is topdressing ap-
plying a layer of new soil over the
lawn. Frequent, light applications
are better than one heavy appli-


Florida to Get $2 Million

for Workers Affected by Storm
U.S. Congressman Pete Peterson, D-Marianna, announced that the
federal Department of Labor will provide $2 million to assist workers and
communities in Florida affected by the March 13 storm that devastated
the state.
'This funding is critical to help our displaced workers get back on
their feet," Peterson said. "We applaud the commitment of President Bill
Clinton and Labor Secretary Robert Reich to help our state after this
tragic storm."
Peterson said the Florida Department of Labor and Employment Se-
curity will manage the emergency jobs funding for more than 450 work-
ers in 26 counties designated disaster areas following the storm. In the
Second Congressional District which Peterson serves, Taylor, Suwannee,
Columbia, Hamilton, Bay, Gulf and Franklin counties will be eligible for
funding.
The workers will be employed in short-term clean-up and repair jobs,:
and some who were permanently displaced may be retrained. Funding

Thatched lawns cause seri-"
ous problems for many Floridi-,
ans. Thatch is sneaky, it builds
up out of sight often reaching,
damaging levels before you recog4
nize its presence. Thatch is not a
disease. It's a natural product of
grass growth. But, if unchecked,'
it can threaten the health of your
entire lawn.
Thatch, which causes lawns :
to become spongy iand unthrifty,
* is an accumulation of dead and
dying organic matter, old stems.
runners, and' leaves. It builds up,
between the soil surface and the'
actively growing green grass.
Accumulations of thatch
make mowing very difficult. While
providing a home for turf insects,
thatch reduces the effectiveness
of insecticides and fungicides by
restricting their .movement into.
the soil. Water and air movement
are also restricted, causing dry
spot and uneven lawn growth."
Saturated thatch grows slowly,
stimulating disease problems.
As I said thatch is a plant
residue problem. A healthy lawn
produces vegetation very rapidly.
As long as production of plant tis-
sue exceeds that rate of decay,
thatch will accumulate. Overwa-
tering and over fertilizing contrib-
utes to thatch building by stimu-

"The Story of a Seed"
by Judith Husband
If I were a seed, I would want
somebody to water .me. And I
would want some sunlight. And
:-now I begin to grow. First some
leaves would come up and then
some more leaves would come up.
And suddenly I became a flower. I
have pollen. And the bees trans-
fer my pollen to my stem. And it
drifts down to meet the eggs to
make another seed."'

It Is with deep and sincere
sorrow that we, the members of
Gulf Chapter No. 191 Order of.
the Eastern Star, pay the final
tribute of love and respect to the
memory; of our beloved Sister
Harriet Schmucker.
On the evening of April 10,
1993, our Heavenly Father in his
infinite mercy and wisdom called
our Sister to her eternal Home on
High and,
WHEREAS: because of her"
thoughtfulness of others, unself-
ish ideals and smiling counte-
nance, she was an inspiration to
all who knew her. She merited
'the love and respect and esteem
of all who knew her.
Although her membership in
our Order was brief, she was de-
voted to its purpose and exempli-
fled the virtues of a true Eastern -
Star, and illustrated in her life
the lessons taught by the Hero-
Ines of our Order,
THEREFORE BE IT RE-,
SOLVED; that we extend to her
husband Brother Harold and to .
her daughters and to her family,-
our deep and tender sympathy in
their great loss and pray that God,
will comfort and keep them.
THEREFORE BE IT FUR-,

this resolution :be spread upon
the minute book and copies sent
to her family.

To treasure our whole life

But its sweetness will live for-

And we cherish the memory
of you."
