Businessmen Show Support


Expression of
Concern for
Seafood Firm
In Wake of Fire
It started out as a "We should
do something," and graduated to
a full-blown barbecued chicken
dinner with all the trimmings,
cooked and served on the site of
rebuilding.
With the destruction ofa ma-
jor part of Raffield Fisheries by
fire for the second time in eight
years, local businessmen, bank-
ers. civic club'members 'and ctif-.
zens wanted to express their con-
dolences for the great loss to the
family and at the same time, offer
Inspiration to them to rebuild and
get back in business. For nearly
two months the subject was
mulled over, thought about, dis-
cussed until it became the gener-
al consensus of the community
that some tangible expression of
support was needed here.
IN APPRECIATION
There was no organization,
per se. The event just "hap-
pened". Last week, the group
started putting their thoughts to-
gether and they formed into the
dinner, cooked for the Raffield
work force-the Raffield family.
Early Wednesday morning.
two huge cooking grills were
rolled into place inside the cav-
ernous, burned-out warehouse-

with activity. Now, it was hum-
ming with activity again-activity
which would allow the huge sea-
food producer to get back into
business.
Fires were built in the grills
and pick-up trucks started rolling
in with cleaned chicken halves.
tea, baked beans, cole slaw, eat-
ing utensils, bread and a giant
cake baked especially for the
event, with an Inscription which
said, "From the Friends of Raf-


field Fisheries."
LET THE COOKING BEGIN
Rev. Zedoc Baxter donned his
stained "cooking apron," rolled up
his sleeves, barked a few orders
to his helpers and they were off
and running, preparing chicken
dinners for the 125 or so workers
at the plant, busily processing
seafood and getting the remain-
der of the plant ready to use once
(See BUSINESSMEN on Page 3)


It started out as presenting a
matter of information to the
County Commission Board, Tues-
day night, but before the subject
of re-allotting Courthouse office
space, was finished, it had grown
into a full-blown conflict of inter-.
est.
The Commission is answering
Extension Director Roy Lee Cart-
er's request for more office space
by suggesting he be moved to the
old Courthouse in Wewahitchka,
where most of his work is, any-
how. The space now occupied by
Carter may have been described
as "small" by him, but it is being
looked at with covetous eyes by
the various offices, calling for a
re-apportionment of Courthouse
office space.
Tuesday night, chairman Na-
than Peters, Jr., presented a
plan-complete with drawings-
he reported as being the request
of Tax Collector Eda Ruth Taylor.
Peters had re-assigned all the of-
fice space on the east side of the
Courthouse, in his plan. He sug-
gested Taylor's office be expanded
to include space now occupied by
Property Appraiser Kesley Col-
bert; Supervisor of Elections Cora
Sue Robinson's office be expand-


ed into space now occupied by
Judge David Taunton, Taunton
moved upstairs and Colbert sand-
wiched in between Taylor and
Robinson, in space formerly occu-
pied by Carter and the Drivers' Li-
cense testing room.
Commissioner Michael Ham-
morid suggested they delay ap-
proval of the move, to give time to
study the suggestion.. Commis-
sioner Billy Traylor chided Peters
for his plan saying, 'You never
discussed this with me, and I pre-
sume you haven't discussed it
with the rest of the Board. We
need to have input to what hap-
pens inside the Courthouse."
Then he said, "How do the offi-
cials affected feel about this?"
Peters replied that they had
been invited' to take part in the.
re-allotment of space, in several
conferences, saying -he had dis-
cussed the matter with them.
Then Colbert stood up and
said he had not been invited to
any planning meeting, much less
taken part in the decision. "As a
matter of fact I have never official-
ly been told about It." he said.
Peters said courthouse main-
tenance supervisor, Dan Clifford,
had been to Colbert's office for


Murder!

S.."A fifty year old white male.. was found mudered in his..
-'om'.at Beacon Hill at 11:00 a.m. Wednesday. The man's
identification was not revealed pending notification of
next of kin. The man was found by a neighbor and was
thought to have been dead as long as three days.
i. Investigation is underway by the Gulf County Sheriffs
Department and the Florida Department of Law Enforce-
:i::ent. The man had been stabbed to death and investiga-
: tors have recovered the knife believed to have been used
in the slaying.
According to Sheriff Al Harrison the victim's car. a
1991 white Camaro, was missing from the home. It was
found shortly after noon in Bay County and was being
processed by the Bay County Sheriffs Department crime
lab. The dead man was found in the living room of his
home, and there were no signs of forced entry according
to Sheriff Harrison. He said that the investigation is be-
ing centered around recent invited guests and acquain-
tances of the victim.
Sheriff Harrison reported that the victim's neighbor
became suspicious after seeing the lights on and the ve-
hicle gone, Upon investigation the neighbor saw the vic-
tim through the window of the home, and called the Gulf
County Sheriffs Department.


his ideas about a month ago.
Colbert countered with, "Dan
came to my office and told me
how it was going to be, about a
month ago and that's the only
thing I have heard about the
plan. I take that back; one of my
employees told me that she had
heard it on the street about a
week before Clifford's visit."
Both Hammond and Traylor
objected to adopting Peters' plan
without having agreement from
the several offices affected. Ham-
mond moved that the matter be
tabled, pending further discus-
sion. Commissioner Yeager said,
'We can wait a while to get better
Involvement. We're not in that
much of a hurry." Commissioner
Traylor objected to the fact "that
we haven't been involved in the
process. I knew nothing about it
until about two weeks ago. We
need to study this."
Peters insisted all officers of
the Courthouse were notified of
the planning meetings and invit-
ed to take part in the planning,
but he was out-voted by his fel-
low Commissioners.
SUBDIVISION' REGS
The County Subdivision regu-
lation came under perusal Mon-
day, when residents from the
South Gulf County Beaches ap-
peared to tell the Board the docu-
ment needed some changes made
In language to accommodate their
part of the County.
'The rulings are not suffi-
clently spelled out as to restric-
tions forbdtr'Aitnlty," said John
Cullen. "They may work in other
parts of the County, but they sti-
fle growth in our section," he
said.
Specifically, the South Beach-
es residents and developers were.
citing subdivision size require-
ments, paving, restriction of lot
sizes and drainage culverts. "The
requirements of your subdivision
regulations just don't fit our
neighborhood," said Andy Ander-
son.
Anderson pointed out that
the area on the Peninsula was
laid out in government lots 150
feet wide and as much as 1400
feet deep. "One can build three or
four houses on property that size
and the regulations say we have a
subdivision if we do, and we are
required to pave a road to the in-
dividual homes. Some property
owners wish to build the homes

High School Juniors Have A Day Devoted to Free Enterprise


W. Port St Joe High School Jun-
iors received just a touch of infor-
mation about how free enterprise
operates in the United States
Tuesday morning in a Chamber
of Commerce-sponsored pro-
gram, which occupied the entire
day. It was the fourth annual em-
phasis on the free enterprise sys-
tem.
About 57 students took part
in the special activities, all of
which were designed to call atten-
tion to the importance of the mar-
ket place in American life.
The day began with the show-
ing of a film about an unem-
ployed black man who began
making and selling chocolate chip
cookies back in the middle 70's,
which has developed into the na-
tionally known 'Famous Amos"
cookie brand name.
Willie Amos has parlayed a
few dollars, a lot of hard work,
marketing skills and his selling
abilities into a world-wide cookie
company which attracts an im-
mense buying public.
VISIT BUSINESS FIRMS
Following the presentation of
the film, the students left the
school, in groups of three, along
with a business owner/manager
host to get a first-hand look at
just what makes a business oper-
ation tick. They were taken be-
hind the scenes of the various op-
erations visited and saw some of
the things which must be done
and accomplished each sday to
4 bring various products to the peo-


ple of Port St. Joe and the world.
Following about an hour and
a half of on-site Inspection of a
variety of business operations in
and around Port St. Joe, the stu-
dents were taken to St. Joseph's
Bay Country Club and treated to
dinner.


SPEAKERS
Following the meal, Ralph Ro-
berson, Chamber of Commerce
president,, spoke briefly to the
students on the importance of
preparation for the business
world. "Make yourself a goal," he
said. ,You don't necessarily have


follow that goal all your life, but
have a direction for yourself; a
goal to give purpose to what you
do."
Superintendent of Schools,
Walter Wilder, spoke briefly to the
students, telling them they had a

A Fitting

A couple of weeks ago, we were musing at
this keyboard on the need for the community to
somehow express its support for the Raffield's
during their time of trouble caused by the de-
structive fire which swept through Raffield's
Seafood Company headquarters.
'What do you do at such a time? What do
you say?" we wrote.
Well, a group of people this past week didn't
do or say much, but we could tell from the re-
action to what they did do that it was very
much appreciated by the Raffields and their
employees.
-A group of local men worked up a barbe-
cued chicken dinner for the firm and all its em-
ployees. They secured two huge grills, hauled
them to Raffield's burned out buildings, set up
and barbecued chicken, baked beans and made
coleslaw and served the nearly 125 workers
present on that day.
When the dinner was prepared, a call went
out all over the compound to come eat. They
came from every comer of the property. Fork
lifts stopped running; men stopped clearing
away burned sections of the fire-gutted build-
ing; they stopped cleaning and processing fish;
they stopped working on a make-shift ice room
and laid down the dozens of chores they were
occupied with and gathered around.
Rev. Zedoc Baxter, the chef of the day, said
grace over the food while everyone stood quietly
and reverently, then they enjoyed the food.
The thing which struck us favorably about
the whole operation was that not a one was
standing around visiting on this occasion as
'one would think they might be on such an oc-
casion with visitors on the premises. All the


Community Gesture


people were working with clearing out debris or
keeping the job going of processing fish, just as
hard as they could. One man ate on his forklift
while it idled, then immediately started back to
work when he finished., Everyone returned to
the job they were doing, when .they finished
eating.
They were loyal to the Raffield family and
they expressed their gratitude for the show of
concern the ones who furnished the feast had


shown them.
We don't know who or what organization got
the meal together. We sort of feel they didn't
particularly want us to know. They were from
all walks of our community, civic club mem-
bers, industrialists, bankers, private citizens,
merchants ... all joined together to show their
support. -
We suspect it was a project which just grew
and got done somehow, with common purpose


and common approval. Nobody was looking for
publicity. Nobody was looking for donations.
Nobody was looking for thanks. All anyone was
looking for was for a friend to know that they
cared about his misfortune and wished him the
best in recovery,
The group wasn't looking for thanks or
credit, but'they received it. The Raffield family
appreciated the gesture and the employees ap-
preciated knowing they weren't alone.


A Tragic Ending


The Waco, Texas stand-off with the Branch
Davidians is over... tragically!
Of course, nobody suspected the ordeal
would end as it did, with the incineration of
everyone who had been holed up in the com-
pound for nearly two months, defying the FBI
and the ATF officers who had the place sur-
rounded.
The only question we have is, how can ra-
tional, educated people allow a madman such
as David Koresh evidently was, to determine
life or death for them? How can otherwise rea-
sonable people allow the lives of their children
to be thrown away needlessly in such a man-
ner?
The liberal media was trying their best to
blame the federal officers who were keeping a
vigil outside the compound with .the deaths of
the people inside. Even John Chancellor of
NBC news talked as if he would like to lay the
blame at their feet, but didn't quite dare to do


Many news reports seemed to point the
blame for the terrible waste right where it be-
long, at David Koresh, himself. Koresh's rela-
tives didn't seem to agree, but .even they should
have been convinced through the daily reports
from Waco that the officials outside did every-
thing they could to bring the matter to a peace-
ful solution.
Everything but walk off and leave them in-
side, you say?
How can you leave a group of militants
holed up, avoiding, arrest, after they have greet-
ed a search warrant at the front door with un-
friendly chatter from an AK47? How do you just
go home and forget about a group-even
though they claim to be religious-who has
killed four of your fellow officers and friends
with no provocation?
How do you rely on the word of a self-


appointed messiah who tells you something dif-
ferent every day?
David Koresh is responsible for all that hap-
pened in Waco, from the surveillance team
which sealed he and his followers inside to the
splashing about of the lantern fuel to the final
scratching of a match on a hard: surface to set
the fire. He kept the people inside as surely as
if he had "chained them to a p6st, to meet a
painful death and cause the death of over a
score of innocent children.
We go along on our merry way thinking all
the "Jim Joneses" are off somewhere like Guya-
na, sowing their destructive ideas to gullible
people, only to find them here in the United
States, preaching their wacky ideas.
We suppose that's a price we have to pay foi
forbidding the mention of religion in our
schools and public places. It is such a mystery
to everyone, they don't know truth [or fiction]
when they hear it.


KHunker Down with Kes


I Should'a Picked


Glenda Jean...


I always wanted a twin broth-
er. Wouldn't it be neat to have
someone your exact same age to
- grow up-with? It would have been
so much fun, and Interesting. For
one thing, we'd never know who
was going to win the fight For
years my older brother and I
would tie up over something. He
won every time. I never did win a
fight with him! I still haven't! Of
course, I'd win when I'd jump on
my little brother. Too predictable
But boy, the excitement of not
knowing the outcome would'a
been stupendous when I was ten
years old.
And think of the school possi-
bilities. Only one of us would en-
roll. Hey, every other day was a
vacation. 'Course, we'd have "to
coordinate that just a tad. We'd
both leave the house together,
but down where the road forked,
one of us would take the books
and head on up to the school
house the other would cut a
trail for the big ditch and a day of
Tarzan or Roy or Gene....... It
wouldn't take us long to figure
out which was the smarter -
we'd send him on test day. The
more I think about it, the more I


feel cheated.
Names would have .been in-
teresting. Hopefully, Mother
wouldn't a'chosen Kesley and
Wesley. Sounds like a tag team
wrestling match. Ricky Gene,
Yogi and Buddy would have con-
stantly been making fun of those
handles. Ican hear'em now. And
I'll tell you something else, most
ever Wesley that I know is kind'a
on the stubborn, opinionated, ob-
stinate, hard to get along with
side wouldn't do for a twin. Be-
sides, I never met a Wesley that
couldn't out write me ten to one.
I'd a'named us Hank and
Lefty. And it wouldn't a'mattered
which one I got. Hank and Lefty -
- couldn't nobody make fun of
those names. And did I mention
that we'd have to be identical.
Dad would come around the cor-
ner of the barn and yell, "Hank, I
told you to slop those hogs before
supper!"
"I'm Lefty, Dad."
Or Mom says, "Lefty, it's your
time to help clear the table."
'Tm Hank, Mom."
"No, you're noti I'm Hank!"
"No, I am."
I tell you, the possibilities are
endless! And Hank and Lefty
aren't the only good names. How
about Bubba and Earl? How
about Prentiss Ray 'and Ernest
Dean? Or Jim Bob and Max Lee. I


kind'a like Elvis. I just don't know
what we'd name the other one.
I saw Parent Trap in 1962
starring Haley Mills and Haley
Mills. I tell you, it was instant
and lasting love. I was afraid
"they" wouldn't like me back
'cause there wasn't but one of
mpe, !m, still hoping Haley mig.
call someday......
I did date a twin once. Ray
Nell and Glenda Jean were their
names. They lived down at Frog
Jump. And I'm not making these
girls or this town up either. You
can check it out for yourself. The
town and the girls are still there. I
met'em after a ball game late one
afternoon and to this day I can't
remember which one I dated. I
think it was Ray Nell. I asked her
if they ever switched places. She
broke into a sort of semi-serious
sadistic laughter, "Not if I see him
first, we don't!"
Folks, you can check this sto-.
ry out in Frog Jump yourself, I
ain't going back.
Marrying a twin could be an
experience. How would you ever
know which one you got for sure?
Of course, you can tell in Ray
Nell and Glenda Jean's case. Ray
Nell is the one with the whip.
Sports would have been inter-
esting. We could have run in mard
athons. Hank could have started

The War Years Had All of Port St. Joe Organized In Its Effort


ONE OF MY grandsons came
by the house the other night,
wanting to pick my brain about
what life was like in Port St Joe
during World War II. It seems he
had to write a report on the sacri-.
fices the people on the home front
had to make to support the men
who were making a sacrifice of
their own in Europe and in the
South Pacific.
The visit brought back sever-
al memories about the "War
Years" which were more nostalgic
than they were painful. I had to
tell him we really didn't suffer at
hbme during the War, even
though we were deprived of many
things and; even several items of
food. We lived under the threat of
sabotage or attack here in Port
St. Joe, but we never realized we
were making a sacrifice which
was out of the ordinary. We mere-
ly accepted it as a more or less
necessary way of life and didn't
worry too much about it
The report of casualties of


Etaoin Shrdlu

Gulf County men would filter
'back every now and then. Several
names were reported as casual-
ties of war during the four years
we lived with it.

HERE AT HOME we did
without some things, bought War
Bonds at public rallies and bb-
served meat-less Mondays, Tues-
days, Wednesdays, Thursdays,
Friday, Saturdays and Sundays
and walked on our cardboard sole
shoes wherever we went, accept-
ing it as a way of life much like
we had just come through with.
the depression.


Here in Port St. Joe we didn't
show any lights at night. We were
a "sensitive" area with the petrolel
um-pumping depot of the South-
east located on the shores of St.
Joseph Bay. We funneled much
of the gasoline used in this area
through the Southeast Pipeline,
terminal which were located here.
During the war we received
up to 45 tankers a week bringing
in gasoline to be sent through the
pipeline. Activity like this attract-
ed submarine activity, which
caused the "Empire Mica" to be
sunk one dark night off Cape San
Bias. Seaplanes were based in St.


Joseph Bay, with two big bombs
slung under their wings. They
would leave in the morning and
return that evening, after being
on patrol all day.
I guess we should have been
worried that one of those German
submarines would lob a shell into
the gasoline storage tanks near
the paper.mill, but most of us
younger people just dismissed
that from our mind as an impos-
sibility.
WE HAD SHORTAGES of
fresh meat, shoes, sugar,' tooth-
paste, canned goods, tires, auto-
mobiles, gasoline and other items
which made life a little monoto-
nous, but some things we never
had in the first place.
S My grandson thought we
were being prevailed upon when I
told him the average person only
received a ration of three gallons
of gasoline per week. He couldn't
figure out how we got to the
beach, how we managed to just


ride around, how we passed the
days and nights, staying right at
home, not able to go anywhere.
Well, we made our own enter-
tainment. Remember, if you will,
nobody had television in those
days. Television never came to
this part of Florida until about
1954, even after it became availa-
ble.
Three gallons of :gas. What
could you do with only three gal-
lons of gas every week? Well, you
could make one trip serve two or
three purposes. You had to plan
shorter trips. The available gaso-
line had to .be saved for going to
work. There was none to waste
"cruising" half the night.
If you were young and vigor-
ous and wanted to do some
"cruising", you rode a bicycle .
or walked.
I rode Frenchie to the movies
many evenings on the handlebar
of my bicycle and back home
the same way. It was just a way
of life we had to get used to.


SO WE WOULD feel that each
and everyone of us had a part to
play in the war, and since this
was a sensitive area, the Civil De-
fense Corps set up an airplane
spotting tower in downtown Port
St. Joe to watch for any aircraft
which flew over dur part of the
sky.
It was located right smack in
the middle of Williams Avenue,
squarely in front of The Star's
present office supply store.
The tower was manned 24
hours a day until the nation's for-
tunes began to turn in the war,
then it was manned sporadically.
All the plane spotters were volun-
teer local citizens.
We all had our things to do.
We worked to fill in where men
had been taken to go fight. 'Ve
volunteered to patrol the beaches
at night, augmenting the Coast
Guard, stationed at Cape San
Blas. We grew victory gardens.
We did our part. Above all, we
never lost heart.

How To Know When You've
Reached Middle Age
Anyone can say what they will, but there comes a time when
the body can't deliver like it once did. That goes for the mind, too.
When that time comes it's called "middle-age."
I don't know about women, but all men face it at a point in
their lives: Either that or premature death. The latter is an alterna-
tive that we want to avoid at all cost.
But many men resist this part of life like a golfer resist putting
down a triple-bogey. I really don't know why because it's really a
peaceful time of life, this part called middle age.
But there's no magic age or line to cross to become a middle-
age man. Rather, it's a multitude of small things that slowly creep
into your mind and physical being that eventually let one know that
he is definitely a '"middle-age" man.
How do you know when you have become middle-age? You
know you are definitely middle-age when:
*You finally sent in the dues for AARP.
*You drive the speed limit.
*You see some of the foolish things. your children do and won-
der why they would do anything so foolish, then suddenly realize
you did things a few years ago that were even more foolish.
*A "wonderful evening" is a brisk walk, a nice dinner, and good
movie on TV-
*Getting to your destination safely is more important than the
vehicle you ride in.
*Several times each week you look back on your life and realize
just how much time and effort you've wasted on unimportant and
foolish things.
*You finally concede and admit (to yourself) that one day you
are really going to die.
*You dress more for comfort than style.
*"Wine, women and song" become "a glass of milk, the wife and
soft music."
*You finally realize that there most probably will be a "tomor-
row" and you had better be prepared for it.
*Finally, middle age is a time when a man is concerned about
things that go on around him and worries about them, but knows
that there's really nothing he can do about them.
Middle age can be a "stinker" if you let itl

would start to enforce the litter

law to litter and a fine can be im-

good start in Port St. Joe High
School. "Many of your local civic
leaders were Port St. Joe High
School graduates. A graduate sat
as an advisor, three doors from
President Jimmy Carter, while he
was in the White House. A gradu-
ate of Port St. Joe High School
was recently chairman of Florida
Democrats. A graduate is' presi-
dent of St. Joe Forest Products. A
graduate, whose family had less
.money than any student in this
"room, wanted t6 'be a medical
missionary and accomplished his
goal after 11 years of prepara-
tion."
He said, 'You need an educa-
tion, to start. It is offered to you
but you must grasp it yourself."
Whether it's making cookies
or selling groceries, the students
were informed by their role mod-
els that a plan and hard work is
important to succeeding in the
free enterprise system.
Incidentally, both of the
speakers-Roberson and Wilder-

Our American heritage is pre-
cious. It originated back when
Columbus and others sailed
across the seas to find a new`
world. When most of our ances-
tors were living in Asia and Afri-
ca, we did not know America even
existed. After Columbus found
America, some that could afford it
started sailing to the new world
only to find Indians here. After we
took it over from the Indians,,
more and more people started,
sailing here. The wealthy started
selling, buying and trading
slaves. Soon, we started estab-
lishing colonies and elected presi-
dents. More and more slaves and
land owners started coming over.
'They started farming on opening
markets. There still was a few In-
dians. They were friendly and
didn't know much but how to
farm, fish, and hunt. So some
people came and got to know the


lor citizens or any elders. My re-
sponsibility to preserve my Ameri-
can heritage is just like any
other. It's to be all I can be and
telling all I can tell and teaching
all I can teach about this wonder-
ful country.

Our American Heritage and My
Responsibility to Preserve It
by Anthony Lee
Many men have come before
us; many men will come after.
America is a nation built upon
hard work and the lives of our pa-
triots. When the Pilgrim's came to
America from England, they were
looking for a place to start over
afresh. They wanted to have
choices, such as choices on what
they worshipped and choices on
the government they served.-
We, as Americans, have a
good foundation on which our
country was built. The Constitu-
tion was written in such a way as


From left, Sylvia Costin, chairman, Arion Nickson, Anthony Lee,
and Sue Weathington, vice regent.


Indians real good and they start-
ed showing each other things
they didn't know.
Then there was problem with
racism. The slaves didn't like how
they were treated. They couldn't
do much ,about it because they
could not read, write, or vote. Lat-
ier, they decided to let slaves vote
,only under certain circumstanc-
es. Later the Constitution forbid
that There still was a problem
with racism. When white people
was considered first class and
'colored people was considered
second class. One day there was,
a colored woman who refused to
give up her seat on the bus for a
white woman. That was a big con-
trqversy. Then Martin Luther
King marched on Washington
and gave a speech "I Have A
Dream." In his speech, one of his
main topics was that "one day he
wished his children could one day
walk down the road and not be
judged by the color of their skin."
When he was assassinated, they
had a big riot out in Watts. There
was a lot of looting and killing go-
.ing on. About 20 years later, the
same thing happened in Los An-
geles, but it did not result from
an: assassination, it resulted from
the beating of a black man by six
white cops. America was not
about that It was about everyone
getting along..
People have the right to do
whatever they want to do as long
as they did not disrespect any-
one. Our heritage is one not like
any other country. We have 50
different states, a district, and
several territories under one writ-
ten constitution. My responsibili-
ty to preserve it is to do what it
takes to do right under the law. It
means by not bearing arms, leav-
ing the country without proper
papers, drinking" under age and
also smoking under age, helping
elderly peopleget around. Most of
all, not being disrespectful to sen-


to give the people the power in
the government. Although the
foundation was laid well, in re-
cent times, voters have 'been
slack in electing the officials that
govern them.
The men and (vomen of this
S'nationr have fought to defend this
country, but, 'as a majority, we
have not fought to defend the
principles upon which it was
built. If a building starts off well,
but is added to sloppily, it will be-
come top-heavy and fall. Our
country started off well, but is is
falling. I, as well as my fellow
Americans, have many responsi-
bilities to preserve this great na-
tion.
First-of all, I have the respon-
sibility to keep good, honest men
in office, men who have knowl-
edge of the sacrifices that were
made to enable us to have' free-
dom. I feel it is my responsibility
to fight for and. to defend my
country. I will not sit idly by and
watch my country and my free-
doms being taken away. This
does not necessarily have to be
done by an opposing country; de-
ceptive politicians can take our
freedoms away if we do not stop
them.
I feel also that everyone that
lives here has an obligation to
keep this nation clean. The envi-
ronment has become a severe

CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM
All Childrenn

SShould Learn
:to Swim

Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

All children should learn how to swim. This can be a life saving
skIll that'prefitt should be dfrtain their children learn. This is par-
ticularly important in our area with all the rivers, lakes, swimming
ools, anrid Gulf of Mexico waters.
Children can be taught, to swim, at a. very early age, but a one or
two year old child cannot, be expected:to swini out If he falls in un-
expectedly. The'young child would'panic if unattended and should
never be left unsupervised[ around water. Everyone knows of too
many examples of tragedies that have occurred under such circum-
stances.
At the, ame time child is learning to swim, he should also
learn to swim safely. In' additionrto swimming in water that is a safe
depth for him, it also includes being visible at all times.
Safe diving can be taught after a child has learned to swim. Ex-
planations should be given to explain how one can sustain a spinal
cord injury'and be-paralyzed by diving where It is unsafe or where
the diving conditions are unknown.

County Medicaid Recipients
to receive New I.D. Cards


The, Department, of Health
and Rehabilitative Services is
starting a- new Medicaid identifi-
cation card program expected to
save more than, $1 million annu-
ally and significantly reduce veri-
flcation errors. .
Beginning May 1, Medicaid
recipients will xeceye. anew mag-
netic identification card. .This
card, will allow providers instant
access to patient eligibility infor-
mation, and will replace the
paper cards mailed to(.recipients
on, a monthly bsis.
Assistant Secretary for Medic-
aid Gary Clafke said the new
card will elimlijate problems asso-
ciated with address & changes,,
postal service problems, arid
monthly postage costs. \-:
"It will also provide accurate
verification of recipient eligibility
before providing services, thereby
reducing errors," Clarke said.
Clarke expects significant
cost savings when the plastic
cards are issued statewide. He
said that postage costs for the
paper cards alone average ap-
proximately $250,000 per month
- a cost that will virtually be
eliminated. Additional savings
will be seen from a decrease in
the number of denied claims and


reduction.
The new card will be sent to
Medicaid recipients in Holmes,
,Washington. Bay. Jackson, Cal-
houn, Gulf, Franklin, Liberty,
Gadsden. Wakulla,. Leon; Jeffer-
son, Madison, and Taylor
counties for use beginning May 1.
Recipients in the remaining
counties are scheduled to receive
their new identification cards
during the balance of 1993.
When Medicaid recipients re-
ceive their new cards, they will
also be given a health care bene-
fits booklet which explains how to
use the card, information on ser-
vices covered by Medicaid, infor-
mation on recipient rights, and
telephone numbers to call with .
questions.
,Prior to full Implementation
of the new cards. Medicaid pro-
viders will be offered training to
familiarize themselves and their
billing staff with the new cards.
The new cards will ultimately be
used by 1.5 million recipients and
55,000 Medicaid providers.

that places unvaccinated children
at great risk of getting these dis-
eases from other unprotected
children who have the diseases
now. Parents should check their
children's immunization records

on immunizations. If children are
behind schedule for needed im-

to get them. up-to-date. A call to
your physician's office or to Gulf

Parents are urged not to de-

CALORIES AND

CAVITIES


A recent study has shown
that Americans are consuming
just as much sugar today as
they were 10 years ago, and
even more corn sweeteners, a
common ingredient of packaged
foods.
In fact, each year Ameri-
cans consume the average per-
son's weight in table sugars and
corn sweeteners, about 129
pounds' worth. These are called
"empty calories" because they
contain essentially no nutrients.
What is all this sugar doing
to their dental health? The same
thing it did to the Dutch 300
years ago. Many of the paint-
ings of Dutch painter Rembrandt
show people with decayed or
missing teeth, or no teeth at all.
This was in the 17th century


when the Dutch were bringing
back large quantities of sugar
from the New World. By 1661
Amsterdam had 60 sugar refin-
eries and had become the "car-
bohydrate capital" of Europe.
Before then, cavities and miss-
ing teeth were much less com-
mon and so was the use of sug-
ar.
Good dental care today,
with regular checkups, can help
prevent loss of teeth. It also
calls for moderation in sugar in-
take to help keep cavities to a
minimum.

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