Take Your Butts Outside to Smoke

In County Buildings In Three Weeks If Four Members of Board Have Their Way


County Commissioner Billy
Traylor stirred up the largest
matters of controversy before the
remainder of the Commission
members took off on their annual
jaunt to the state convention' of
county commissioners Tuesday.
morning.
Traylor wasn't exactly blow-
ing smoke when he suggested the
T Commission ban smoking in all
county-owned buildings. Traylor
said, "It's a state law making it il-
legal to smoke in a public build-


ing and we should enforce the
ban in all our public buildings."
Attorney Pat Floyd seemed to
be 'of the opinion that the Com-
mission must designate smoking
areas in the several buildings
owned by the county but stated,
"I'll have to read the statute to be
sure."
Traylor wanted to outlaw
puffing in all parts of all county
buildings. "People can go outside
to smoke a cigarette so they won't
disturb people with respiratory


problems," Traylor said.
Michael Hammond vehemen-
fly opposed Traylor's suggestion
stating, 'The County also owns
several Fire Department buildings
throughout the County. This mo-
tion will affect them too. The
Beaches Fire Department is pay-
ing for a new' fire truck. with
funds realized from bingo. About
three-fourths of, those people
smoke. You will be cutting into
their revenue if you include all
county buildings with your ban!


I'm opposed to it!"
Traylor and the remainder of
the Commission argued that no
matter what Hammond wished in
the matter, "It's a state law," he
said.
Hammond prevailed by delay-
ing the vote until the next meet-
ing, June 21, when the subject
will be brought to a vote. As it;

Young Child


Struck by Car

Still Listed In Critical Condition
Little Jonathan Thumm is still listed in very critical
condition after being struck by an automobile at about
12:45 p.m., Sunday afternoon.
,The four-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. John Thumm
was reported by witnesses to be leading a dog on a leash
along the edge of Madison Street, near the intersection
with Jackson Street, when the dog pulled loose and dart-
ed across the road with the child following. Both the dog
and the child dashed out from behind a parked car, ap-
parently without looking, into the path of a vehicle trav-
elling westbound on Madisonc Street, driven by James
Bennett, 48, of Port St, Joe.
Bennett's car struck the Thumm child, inflicting seri-
ous head injuries. The young boy was taken to a Panama
City Hospital by South Gulf County ambulance, where he
was listed in critical condition. He was still in very criti-
cal condition at press time. Wednesday in the early after-
noon.
According to the Highway Patrol officer and witness-
es, the driver of the car was not travelling at a fast rate
of speed. The accident happened so suddenly that there
were no skid marks.


Apalachicola WeatherStation Is Closing


The forecast Is definitely gloomy and 100%
cloudy for the future of the Apalachicola
Weather Station. By December, 1995, the sta-
tion will be shut down and made inoperable by
improved technology, according to Stanley H.
Hobbs, official in charge of the station.
Hobbs says the station, in fact the entire
nation-wide system, is being re-worked to uti-
lize a new wedding of a radar and computer
system, known as a Doppler radar, model
WSR-88D. The Apalachicola station is still us-
ing a radar system which utilizes technology
based on machines developed during the
1940's. Actually, the Apalachicola machinery
was purchased in 1957 and is worn out, out-
of-date, and not as improved in its weather def-
inition as the new Doppler system.
The Apalachicola station's responsibilities
will be assumed by the Tallahassee station. A
new Doppler system is scheduled to be in-
stalled in the Tallahassee station in 1994. In
September 1995, the Apalachicola warning cov-
erage will be transferred to Tallahassee. In De-
10 cember of the same year, Apalachicola will be


turned off for the final time.
The staff of seven people at Apalachicola
will remain on the job for 90 days, then trans-

BETTER COVERAGE
The weather service has nothing but prais-
es for the new system, which is said to be infi-
nitely better than the old system. 'You can pick
up such things as definite locations of rainfall,
tornadoes, snow, hall and other bad weather,
allowing us to give better predictions about are-
as to be affected by the weather. The new ma-
chine will give up to 20 minutes warning of a
tornado. Present lead time is 0-4 minutes,"
Hobbs said.
A complete modernization of the United
States' weather system promises to greatly im-
prove forecast and warning capabilities of the
National Weather Service. Based on new tech-
nology and a greater emphasis on training and
education in the sciences of meteorology and
hydrology, the program is designed to provide
more timely and precise severe weather and
flood warning and forecasts for the nation-a
move that is designed to save lives and help
minimize property damage. Cost savings ad-

Thanks Men! TheBuildingNeeded That


Again we must say we have criticized the
County Commission in the past, for some of
their actions, but it again comes time when we
must congratulate them for some of their ac-
complishments. It's our pleasure to do so be-
cause we think their action in this particular
endeavor was long past due as well as -being
necessary.
We want to commend the County Commis-
sion for their maintenance work during the
past year on the Courthouse.
The Courthouse has been in its present lo-
cation for nearly 30 neglected years and almost
without exception in the, past, it has ,been
brought to the attention of previous' Commnis-
sion Boards,that the building needed'miainte-
nance. Most of the time the warnings have gone
unheeded., At other times, the Boards .have
agreed but didn't know where the money was-
coming from to perform the maintenance.
For the most part, the maintenance needed
was to stop leaks. The building has had a leak
problem for years. The aggregate panels on the'
top story walls have needed re-caulking, replac-
ing, or a general tightening up for several years
now. The roof flashing was pulling away: from
the walls. Holes and bubbles were in the sur-
face which was found to be of an inferior mate-
rial. Water has been coming through' like a
sieve.
Downstairs, the plaster panels on the out-
side have allowed moisture to come through. It
has been chipped, discolored and coming loose
from the building. Several of the windows were
rotted out. Air conditioning has been a prob-
lem. The air conditioner problem was especially

we figured he wasn't doing noth-

all the way to the top so we'd
have enough cord to tie David up.
Leon would lift 'em plum out of
the crib and kinda' dangle him

ways figured Leon just did nor-
mal, big brother stuff.

severe since the building was built to depend
on mechanically cooled/heated and circulated
air in order to be habitable.
Finally, the building has received a hew
roof, outside wall panels are being replaced and
repaired. Plaster is being replaced and the en-
tire building cleaned and repainted where need-
ed. The grounds have been renovated and
mowed regularly. The shrubbery is kept
trimmed, replaced and fertilized. The grass is
watered.

At least one of President Clinton's appoint-

President, himself, and certainly many of his
appointees, do not. ', -
Health and Human Services Secretary Don-

Why should one mother be forced to go into
the work force, eight hours a day, five days a
week, to pay taxes to support a welfare mother
who needs the aid to survive? And, we do just'
that. If a welfare mother gets a job, she is pen-
alized out of proportion for the money she'

Of course, the dumb cow
didn't do nothing. Leon would
look at me. 'You get back there
and pull: I'm going to keep talk-

Me and Leon double-teamed
that cow for years. He did most of
the talking and I did near"'bout
all of the pulling. I often asked
him about trading places.
S"K.C., it won't work. I've got
to do the talking; that's what I'm
good at." I'd start to protest but
he'd stop me with that bottom-,
line speech. "'The bottom-line

Generally, the building looks like the house
of government for a county which cares about
appearances.
This County Commission Board didn't know
where the extra money was coming from to
make the repairs, either. Not only that, they
didn't know where the money was coming from
to repair the County Library, but it, too, has re-
ceived extensive, necessary repairs. The most
needed repair was the replacement of the roof.
A new, metal roof not only has made the build-

earns.
Shalala was thinking more .of a part-time
job for welfare mothers,, but, hey! we have to
start somewhere to bring reason out of a sys-
tem which is abused partly because of govern-
ment rules and regulations.
We're sure it's no fun for those mothers who
must resort to welfare or government aid in or-
der to survive. Too, there are mothers who will
take advantage of the situation as it now is, us-
ing the situation of possession of children to
gain a steady income.
If the mother Was expected to work in order
to receive the welfare payments in the first
place, you might see a different attitude toward
aid to mothers with dependent children.
Back to the "part-time work" thinking. Most
mothers who work to help support the family,
must do so on a full time basis. It seems unfair
to expect one who pays taxes to support the aid

leaks every time it would rain; a condition that
has been a problem almost ever since the
building was built. But, it too was ignored.
Our seat of government is now in good
shape, whether our government is or not. It's a
star in the present Commission's crown that
this has been done and been done in the prop-
er manner. No make-shift repairs were even at-
tempted. They did it right and for that we con-
gratulate them.




to mothers with dependent children, to work
full-time and not expect the recipient of the tax
money to do any less.
Shalala said, "It may not be fair to ask them
to work an eight-hour day .. but it may be ap-
propriate to have part-time work for mothers
who have young children."
It may not be fair to require work of the re-
cipient on a full-time basis, since full-time em-
ployment may not be available. Expecting work
on their part of some sort, is a step in the right
direction: both to discourage the. one usrig the
system, milking it for all they can extract from
it and the mother who is genuinely concerned
with providing adequate needs for her children.
Maybe if President Clinton would 'adopt
such an attitude as that of his Human Services
Secretary toward his proposed budget, he
would not have to be burning the midnight oil
to coax Congress into going along.

It's Better to Read About Snow & Ice Than to Experience It


WE ,HAD A FELLOW visiting
at Rotaty Club last Thursday
from my old stomping grounds of
Oklahoma. Even the same neigh-
borhood. He was from just south-
east of Oklahoma City and I came
from about 40 miles further east.
We had a long conversation
about the state, its attributes and,
its liabilities. When I lived there,
back in the late 30's and early
40's, the backbone of the econo-
my where I lived, right on the
western edge of the 'Texas Pool",
was tied to oil. Even back then, it
was starting to fade, however and
the oil machinery as well as the
people, were moving away to find
work in some other field. Edward
Bee, the visitor, says that 'the
economy in Oklahoma is now
only about two percent dependent
on the oil business and related
fields.
Things change. There was
also a time when the backbone of
the economy in Port St Joe was
seafood and lumber based. These


two products made the wheels
turn in Port St. Joe. Now, they're
almost a sideline, although Raf-
field Fisheries is the number two
employer in the County. ,
THE EMPHASIS ON lumber
has changed to pulp wood arid
fishing is the chief recreation
rather than avocation of the peo-
ple of Port St. Joe.
And speaking of changes in
the wood business, from lumber
to pulp wood, have you noticed
the trend in the size of pulp wood
these days?
Not many years ago, the logs
were huge. They even had log


By Wesley Ramsey

splitters at the Paper Mill woo d
yard to split logs into a size they
could manage in the barking
drums and chipper. Today, the.
trees aren't much larger tharrn
saplings.
When I was on the fire de-
partment 'several years ago, we;
cut saplings almost as large as,
some pulp wood -used today, to
slap out woods fires.
But, I'm getting off the sub-
ject, if there ever was one.

EDWARD BEE remarked in
the lobby of the Motel, while we
were waiting to go upstairs to our"


meeting, 'You have a pretty place
here. I wish we had this in Okla-
homa. You have it so much better
than we do."
Now, get this: Edward is the
executive director of the chamber
of commerce in Edmund, Oklaho-
ma, a suburb, now, of Oklahoma
City. Back in the late 30's and
early 40's, Edmund was an inde-
pendent city, rather than a sub-
urb community of Oklahoma
City. The capital city has grown
out to meet Edmund.
Anyhow, imagine a remark
like that coming from a chamber
of commerce executive director
He wasn't dazzled by unfamil-
, clarity with Port St Joe, either. He
is familiar with our town. He mar-
ried the 'former Carol White, and
took her off to live in the ice,
snow, and cold of Oklahoma. We
have a few more Port St. Joe na-
tives out there. Paula Ward lives
in Broken Arrow, near Tulsa.
Wayne Pate got out of the Air
Force and came home because


they wanted him to stay there for
a while longer. Alfred Rhames, a
resident back when we were both
young, lives only about two miles
from Edward Bee. He received Al-
fred's copy of The Star a while
back and took it to him.
All of this information came
from Bee. It's a small world.

BUT, OKLAHOMA isn't a bad
place to live. For the most part it
is a pretty place to live. I notice
those Port St. Joe transplants
haven't taken a pay cut, just to
get back home.
Wayne Pate was at the Rotary
meeting, too, and told Edward, "I
actually miss the place. It's a nice
place to live. You have a change
of the season there. I actually
miss the ice and snow ... ."
To which Bee answered, in-
credulously, "Sure you dol"
Well I'll tell you, I haven't
been gone from Oklahoma long
enough to miss the ice and snow.


It's been 50 years since I lived
there and I agree, it's a nice
place, with some pretty country
in the eastern half of the state. It
may be in the western portion
too, for all I know. I've never been
there. But even 50 years absence
from the state hasn't erased the
memories of the ice and snow
every winter.
To a confirmed Florida
"Cracker" today, the ice and snow
is something to view on Christ-
mas cards, not slog through, try-
ing to walk somewhere, or trying
to keep warm when it's freezing
outside.
I waded snow up to my belly-
button and slid down and busted
the other side on Iced-over side-
walks too many times to desire a
return to experience such a life-
style.
I agree with Bee. It's nice to
live where it's actually news when
the temperature gets below freez-
ing. It's much better to write
about it than it is to experience it

A few of the systems are already in opera-
tion throughout the nation in particularly-
storm-prone areas.
When the new technology is in place, people
in Gulf and Franklin County-as well as the,
rest of the nation-can expect:
,-Better warnings and forecasts of hurri-

canes and winter storms that claim a major toll
of life and property.
-Earlier, more reliable and site-specific
warnings of flash floods.
-Earlier, more reliable and accurate warn-
ings of thunderstorms and tornadoes.
-Improved warnings of general flooding for
the increasing numbers of people living in cit-
ies, river valleys, and coastal areas. ..
-Fewer false alarms of severe weather, re-
sulting in heightened public confidence in
weather warning services.,
-Improved long-range routine forecasts,
out to ten days, better serving the general ppp-
ulation as well as agricultural, transportation
and other economic interests.


Traffic Arrest Uncovers Quantty ofCrac $3,8rth


Port St. Joe Police routine ac-
tivities paid off with an arrest of a
39-year-old resident of 304 Ave-
nue B for carrying an estimated
$3800 worth of crack cocaine Fri-
day night
Officers Mark Cutler and
Marty Williams stopped Wellring-
ton Farmer for a traffic violation
about 8:15 p.m., Friday, in what
they' thought would be a routine
arrest. It turned out to be far
from routine.
When the officers stopped
Farmer, he resisted arrest and
took off running, trying to elude
the officers. The officers chased
him down and took him to the
Gulf County Jail for resisting ar-
rest with violence, writing the ar-
rest ticket at the Jail.
Williams started to return to
the Police Department to flu out
the, arrest, report, and routinely.
checked the rear seat of the po-
lice patrol car before leaving the
jail. What he found wasn't exactly
routine. Williams found two small
cellophane envelopes of crack co-
caine cubes tucked between the
seat and the back rest, apparent-


ly hidden by Farmer who had last
occupied the seat on the way to
the Jail.
Williams immediately called
the Jail to advise them of his find
and to place additional charges of

possession of cocaine with intent
; to distribute against Farmer. He
had already been released on his
own recognizance, since it was


thought the traffic violation and
resisting charges were the only"
ones applicable.
A warrant was secured, stat-
ing the additional charges and
Fanner was picked up on the
more serious infraction.
He now faces charges of pos-
session of cocaine with Intent to
distribute and resisting arrest,
with violence.

CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM

Children Should

Have Their Own
Sleeping Space
By
Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

Research has shown each, individual needs his own "space".
This space applies to indlyidual sleeping spa6e as much as waking
space. .
With each new baby., parents need to work out the best ar-
rangerments, they can.for bed space arid sleeping. Many seem to be-
lieve the baby needs to be in the room with the parents, but this is
not true. The normal sniffles and snorts a new baby makes will of-
ten 'keep a parent awake.. Thf baby should be far enough away so,
the normal noises will not keep parents awake, but close, enough,
for the parents to hear When he cries. ,, ,
Many parents get started in the wrong direction with a'new
baby who Is fussy and seenis to sleep more easily when next to thbe
parent Accidehts have .happened where- the parent has fallen
asleep and suffocated a hetvborn. Apart from the danger of suffoea-
tion, they find they still have' the child in bed wifththem at 2 or 3
years of age.
~,, Parents should,teach,thrfeAnfant or child to settle down for sleep
in his own bed and without too many .xtaneous ..maneuvers.
Wakefulness an sleep disturbances are a learned behavior and are
perpetuated by having, the child sleep with the parent.
Problems at bedtime in a 36b'.4 year old are manipulative be-
haviors.' 'Itrequires much firmness and'resojultion on the, part of
parents not to have bedtime become'a "nightmare" for parents. The
children require reassurance about monsters 'and' dagons under
the bed, but that reassurance does not necessitate their being out
of their bed or being in bed with the parents.
It is always a mistake when parents divorce to have a child
start sleeping with a parent. This arouses all manner of anxieties in
the child and makes for an all around bad situation.
When thei-e has been a death in the family is another time par-
ents will begin to sleep with children. This trap should also be
avoided. Comforting and reassurance should be done as required. A
child should never be told the person who died is "sleeping". The
"sleeping" myth brings on many fears and sleep problems.

SPause for the Pledge

of Allegiance June 14


The world-wide "Pause for the
Pledge of Allegiance" is scheduled
for June 14 ati 7 p.m. EDT. The
Pause is a national ceremony for
all Americans around the world
to simultaneously recite the
Pledge. According to the national
Flag Day Foundation and the
Saint Joseph Bay Chapter
(NSDAR) pausing to recite the


Pledge of Allegiance is an integral
part of celebrating Flag Day. All
Americans are encouraged to take
a few moments to celebrate this
simple ceremony, which "tran-
scends age, race, religion, nation-
al origin, political and geographic
differences" and stimulates "patri-
otic experience at home and a
sign of unity abroad."

for them just as a traditional

The Senior Companions serve
the frail elderly. They provide
light housekeeping, companion-

experienced by the homebound

clients to continue living in their
own homes longer than would
otherwise be possible. Volunteers

test excavations in northwest
Florida, deep in the estuarine
wetlands of the Apalachicola del-
ta, at two prehistoric Indian shell
mounds.
The project is financed in
part with historic preservation
grant assistance provided by the
Bureau of Historic Preservation,
Florida Department of State, as-
sisted by the Historic Preserva-
tion Advisory Council. Project di-
rector Dr. Nancy White and a
crew of 10 field school students
and two graduate student super-
visors will be investigating the
deeper, waterlogged levels of
these ancient piles ,of shell and
other food garbage left by earlier
native Floridians. They have' al-
ready learned much about the
prehistoric people of 'the last
couple thousand years. Now they
are after the even rarer remains
of Late Archaic culture, some
3000 to 4000 years ago, when
people made tiny flint microtools
and some of the continent's earli-
est pottery, of clay mixed with
Spanish moss fibers. By pumping
dry a small block of sediment
they can dig below the water ta-
ble and search for even more an-
cient signs of human activity, and
perhaps also find artifacts of usu-
ally perishable materials such as
wood that have been preserved in
the muck. Animal bone fragments,
mixed in with the shells will give
an idea of ancient diets and what
kinds of miroenvironments these
earlier Americans utilized to.
make a living. The work logistics
include putting in well points toe
dry an excavation block. This is
one of the more complex projects
in the history of USF's program of
exploration into the prehistoric
record of the Apalachicola River
Valley.
It is clear that this wetland,
setting was very favorable to hu-
man habitation for many thou-
sands of years. Abundant wildlife
and edible and other usable
plants made subsistence easy. So
far the evidence shows a strong
dependence on fish and turtles
for food, with lesser amounts of
shellfish (oyster, freshwater
clams, and others), mammals

such as rabbits and deer, and oc-
casional other species such as al-
ligator. A major goal of the re-
-search is to go beyond just
reconstructing ancient lifeways
and try to see some aspects of so-'
ciety and economy. For example,
did people. camp at these shell
mounds, high and dry spots in,
the middle of the wetlands, all
year round or just seasonally?
What was the relationship of Late
Archaic societies in Florida with
people who were making the
same kinds of artifacts in the
Louisiana delta area.- and up the
Mississippi River?
Another extremely important
goal of the project is to increase'
awareness of the importance of
archaeological and historic pres-
ervation. These sites contain
priceless-materials from the hu-
man past, and they are NON-
RENEWABLE resources. Once


they are destroyed by looters who
dig for artifacts but keep no
records, by road builders looking
for fill, or by any other distur-
bance, they are lost forever. The
USF group will attempt to bring
this message to the public, espe-
cially at an Archaeology Day to be
held in the city of Apalachicola.
This program will include slide
lectures, artifact displays, movies
on archaeology and native Ameri-
cans, a demonstration of flint-
knapping (manufacture of
chipped stone tools such as spear
points), and other activities. Eye-
ryone is invited to Archaeology
Day on Saturday, June 26, from
1-4 p.m. at the Apalachicola na-
tional Estuarine Reserve auditori-
um and grounds, 261 7th Street.
The USF group will identify peo-
ple's artifacts and help everyone
learn more of how ancient peo-
ples utilized the land we now oc-
cupy and enjoy today.

OPPOSE ENERGY TAX
Traylor also asked the Board

"Bad for the country."
Traylor received the support
of three of his colleagues for this

counties to Gulf to also endorse
the opposition.
The motion was approved at
the meeting Mornday night, with
intentions of putting it down in

The kind of filling the dentist
uses depends on the location of
the tooth and the area to be
filled. The most common filling
is the silver or amalgam type.
These are usually used on the
flat, biting surfaces or where
they will not be visible. For fill-
ings where the material must
match the color of the tooth,
such as the front teeth and often
for gumline fillings of back teeth,
your dentist will probably use a
filled resin or composite filling. It
is tooth colored and the most
popular material used today .for
this use.
Over a period of time, the
composite may stain more than

filling and tooth may not match

Also, they may wear at a faster
rate because the material is not
as hard as the natural tooth ena-

ites, however, have the great
advantage of being aesthetically
pleasing. For most people that
far outweighs their few draw-

Joe's Rodney: Levins did two
things-onee had never done
before. First, he won the first
Street Heat, which head done
many times, and second, he re-
ported for '"Tech" inspection fol-
lowing his win, a first time occur-
rence for him. Even though he
won the Heat going away, he was'
found to be "legal," He was finally
awarded points, and 'he got his
money.
Panama City's popular "Cap-
tain Jerry" Cutchins won the sec-
ond Street Heat. After Cutchinr
and Levins both broke in the
Street feature, David Ashley in a
car called "MoPar Madness" went
on to win with four other cars
breathing down his neck. It was
Ashley's very first win:of the sea-
son after trying for many weeks.
After taking the checker he could.
hardly contain himself, and al-
most broke a leg climbing' out of
his car.
"Flying' Bryan" Brogdon of
Wewahitchka won the first Super
Street Heat and Panama City's,
Darryl Rudd won the second.
With the two hottest cars in the
class set to' start the Feature side
by side, the stage was set for
some torrid action. But it was not


to be. The competition lasted for
only a few laps when Rudd began
to outpower Brogdon and go on
for the win unopposed.
In the Sportsman class, Lynnm
Haven's Buddy Boutwell gave
them all a driving lesson. Bout-
well came out of a five year retire-
ment only a few weeks ago after a
twenty year career that included
over a hundred wins. 'He showed
that he had not lost his touch as
he toured the oval lap after lap
without a single misstep. In fact,
it sounded as, if he never lifted his
foot off the accelerator pedal,
even in the tight turns. He Just
kept his power on and adjusted
his steering to compensate for the
curvature of the track.
Jay McCorvey won the first
Boinber Heat and Tony Malphors
the second. _Malphors then went
on to win his third consecutive
Bomber Main Event. Eighteen
Bombers were, In. the pits, the
largest number yet this year.
They are certainly getting set for
the big Bomber Extravaganza on
July 24 with $5,000 to win.
Next Saturday night the Late
Models will return and will be go-
ing for the $1,000 bonus donated
by local merchants for the fastest
car breaking the track record.


Meeting On Reef Fish


The Gulf of Mexico Fishery
Management Council will hold a
public hearing on Draft Reef Fish
Amendment 7 in Panama City on
Thursday, June 10 from 7:00 to
11:00 p.m. The meeting will be
held at the National Marine Fish-
eries Service, Panama City Labor-
atory, 3500 Delwood Beach Road.'
Draft Amendment 7 princi-
pally addresses the commercial
red snapper fishery and includes
options for managing that fishery
during 1994 through vessel trip
limits, and options for manage-
ment beginning in 1995 by sever-
al types of limited access systems
for this fishery, as well as many
non-limited access options.. The
amendment also' includes
options, if adopted, that would
affect all reef fish dealers and
fishermen. These options include
changing the termination date 6f
the reef fish permit moratorium,
modifying the proposed fish trap
endorsement/moratorium to
allow family transfers, and a
number of options intended to.
improve enforceability of reef fish
management regulations. iriclud-
ing dealer permitting and record
keeping requirements, separation
of red snapper from other fish on
board vessels, standardization 'of
amberjack size limits, a prohibi-
tion on commercial fishing by
charter boats and restricting off-
loading of red snapper to daytime
hours. Persons who would like'to
receive a copy of this draft
amendment may do so by calling
813-228-2815.
Following the public hear-
ings, public comments, will be
summarized for the Council's
consideration at their July 12-16
meeting in San Antonio, Texas,
which will be held at the St.
Anthony Hotel, 30 East Travis
Street. At this meeting, the Coun-
cil will hear testimony from the
public on the amendment but will


not take final action on its provi-
sions until later in 1993.

Fundraiser
NAACP SPONSORS FUNDRAISER
Last Saturday marked the
kick-off fundraiser to support the
Gulf County Branch NAACP Edu-
cational Project. Teams from Gulf
County played very well by main-'
taining a 1-2 points lead or tying
the scores at the end of the game.
The highly competitive tourna-
ment:ended with Tallahassee All
Stars winning the championship,
St. Joe #1 (Larry's Grocery) 2nd
runners-up, and St. Joe Rude
Boys 3rd runners-up. A series of
basketball tournaments are
scheduled for North and South
Gulf County. All games will be.
held on Saturdays. Proceeds for
this project will help fund pro-
grams which black youths are en-
couraged and inspired toward ex-
cellence in academic and cultural
pursuits while benefiting from the
maximum support of their com-
munities. The NAACP target is
the black student because most
national surveys show blacks
among ethnic groups with the
highest drop-out rates and the
lowest scholastic scores. The
Afro-Academic, Cultural, Techno-
logical, and Scientific Olympics
(ACT-SO) program is out to make
heroes and heroines of dedicated
young black scholars, artists, and
scientists, who may otherwise be
ignored. A chartered FAMU cam-
pus bus will depart June 17 to
Orlando for the state ACT-SO
competition. Final notification for
attendance is June 10. 'Thank
You" to the Gulf County Branch
NAACP for supporting the series
of basketball 'tournaments for'
this worth-while cause.

to introduce their children to the
fun of sport fishing without the
costs of buying fishing licenses,"
Holcomb said. "For those who
discover the fun that fishing can
bring, all it takes is the purchase
of a fishing license to continue
the sport throughout the year."
Governor Lawton Chiles
urged all Floridians to participate
in the free fishing weekend in a
proclamation designating June. 7-
13 "Fishing Week in Florida."
During the freefishing period
all other fishing laws and regula-
tions will remain in effect A copy
of the "Florida Freshwater Sport
Fishing Guide and Regulations
Summary" is available free from
any fishing license vendor.
In 1989, the Florida Legisla-
ture authorized the Commission
to designate by rule no more than
two days each year as free fishing
days. Since then the agency has
set aside two days during Nation-
al Fishing Week as a free fishing
weekend.

fishing opportunities and activi-

A Letter to the


Public

A fire in Highland View on Wednesday, May 12 of this year
proved to be a disaster for this community and a catastrophe for me
and all my family.
The Highland View Fire Department responded to the alarm
and proceeded to fight the fire. We appreciate their efforts. They are
a volunteer group and they did what they are trained to do-they
attempted to put out the fire.
, My son arrived some minutes after the firemen. We asked if
people were inside. The firemen did not know. a bystander said that
he thought the family was inside and had tried to communicate this
to the firemen. We asked for a fire axe, but the truck had none. Im-
provising, we managed-with the help of friends-to knock holes in
the walls and remove the three persons who were trapped inside.
Had the firemen had the training and tried to rescue the oc-
cupants first, and had the fire truck been properly equipped and
maintained-the results almost certainly would have been different
because the removal of the bodies would have been accomplished
ten to fifteen minutes earlier.
The first fire truck to respond to the alarm was seriously lack-
ing in equipment-including fire axes.
A second and fully equipped fire truck was not in use because
of a dead battery.
These faults aire serious and should not have occurred. Steps
should be taken immediately to prevent their recurrence. I suggest
making one person responsible for overseeing this.
Our volunteer firemen need training in rescue work. As volun-
teers, they do the best they can; the best they know how to do. No
blame can attach to them. But, surely rescue training id available
somewhere. I request that our volunteers receive this training, el-
ther by attending training classes elsewhere or by bringing someone
in to conduct training here. They need to place saving lives as their
first priority and saving property a distant second-and they should
have the equipment and the training to be successful in their ef-
forts. They are to be commended for their willingness to serve their
community. They should be provided with anything and everything
which will make their services more rewarding for them and for
their community.
Nothing I have said should be construed as criticism of our vol-
unteer firemen. But their service can be greatly improved. My family
will never fully recover from our losses, but should another tragedy
occur and I hIad not spoken, I would feel even worse .
I urge this commission to take the actions I have recommended.
In evidence of my good faith, I offer this contribution of one thou-
sand dollars to start a Regina, Clay, and Kayla Smith memorial
fund to be used for this purpose.

write about those lessons. They
seem to be the more popular of
my Pastor's Columns. And the
sermon illustrations from my gar-

was asked, "If someone told you
the world would end tomorrow,
what would you do today?" Lu-

plant a tree." Ministry and life is
like that. It is a risk of sowing in
the soil of uncertainty, but with

From the

Principal's Desk

Wewahitchka

High School
By Larry A. Mathes


"I


Summer School is underway, creating the usual number of
problems with vacations, camps, Jobs, etc. Students that end up in
summer school can come up with a hundred reasons why they
can't be there. They should have put that much effort into passing
everything. High school subjects now are so critical-not passing
one (or two) means guaranteed summer school if you wish to stay
on track for graduation.
Of particular notice is a recent Board decision to require that
students may not participate in graduation, etc., unless all require-
ments are met prior to the ceremony. Previously, a student who was
short no more than one credit (that could be made up in summer
school after the graduation ceremony) was allowed to walk in the
ceremony with his class. As this decision begins to be implemented,
the pressure on students to immediately make up failures will be
intensified.
School Improvement plans are currently being reviewed by the
School board and the District Advisory board. All schools have had
a public hearing, but very few of the public came out to acquaint
themselves with the plan. I'll be covering the main four topics se-
lected by our School Improvement Team for next year in later arti-
cles this summer, after we get final approval of the plan.
It's frustrating to watch talk shows and discussion shows when
they discuss the poor performance of public schools, principals,
and teachers; and to sit and listen to the solutions these journalists.
'and politicians rant and rave about-more money, new programs,
better teachers, different principals, etc. It's rare when these "spot-
light" people pin-point the main reason for poor performance-so
many students refuse to try to learn In fact, many do everything
they can. to impede learning. The best teacher cannot teach a stu-
dent who has his or her heels dug in saying "you ain't gonna teach
me nuthin". No one has figured out how to "make" someone learn
who not only refuses to learn but often is determined to be a dis-
ruptive influence to other students in class, preventing any learning
from taking place. Compound that with a lack of parental support
to help control the disruptive behavior, and you begin to see why
"our" students perform so poorly.'
Football players need to contact Coach Flowers about summer
work. At this time, no team has been located to replace Carrabelle
on our schedule. Carrabelle has elected to play a JV schedule for
two seasons to try to rebuild their program.

ever really looked at a seed? Talk
about miracle-how God can
grow things so big and so beauti-
ful from something so tiny and
insignificant is a wonder indeed!
God is abundantly able to do
such. He has a habit of taking the
small, diminutive things of life'
and making big differences with
them. The smallest ;kindness
shown, the least deed done, and
the tiniest faith hoped-these do
not escape His notice, nor are
they excluded from His plan. God
does big, bold things. But, oh
how often it-is that He does them
with the smallest of things!
Looked at a seed lately? Sown
any recently? If not in your back-
yard garden, try planting a few in
the garden of your life. You will
be surprised at what God can
grow.

Whooping Crane

Re-Introduced


Three -of the eight whooping
cranes at the Three Lakes Wildlife
Management Area have started
exploring their new habitat. In
fact, researchers have. tracked
them up to 4,000 feet high and
40 miles from their release pens,
All three of the birds are
males.. Steve Nesbitt, the Game
and Fresh Water Fish Commis-.
sion wildlife biologist in charge of
the experimental reintroduction
of whooping cranes, said, five oth-
er whoopers are remaining closer
to the release site, near Yeehaw
Junction. '
"It is typical -behavior for
cranes to move like this during
their first year," he said. "They
may be looking for other whoop-,
ers, or they may be looking for
other habitat options."
Researchers are asking that
anyone who spots "the whoopers
to call 407-436-1542 to report
the location.
Whoopers are mostly white
with black wing tips, black mous-
tache, red cap and a black trian-
gle on the back; of their heads.

acting hummers with


artificial nectar supplements
should consider using both nec-
-tar supplements and red flowers,
Schaefer said. He explained that
while the surgery solution may
appeal to the bird's sweet tooth, it
provides little nourishment.
. And the sugar solutions must
be kept fresh Florida's hot
weather can cause bacterial infec-
tions in the solutions if they are
left out too long, Schaefer ex-
plained, adding that this can be
fatal to the birds. He recommend-
ed that feeders be placed where
rain will not dilute the nectar and
where they won't be in direct sun-
light. :
,Sugar solutions can be made
"by using one part white granulat-
ed cane sugar to four parts water.
Heat the sugar solution to help
dissolve the sugar and after it has
cooled, pour it into a red feeder. It
is not necessary to add red food
coloring. The birds will be attract-
ed to the red feeders.
Schaefer cautioned that us-
ing a sweeter solution, a sugar
substitute or honey might be le-
thal to hummers. And it is impor-
tant feeders are cleaned with hot
water and white vinegar, never
with soap oi: bleach, he said. ,
Oftentimes, sugar solutions
attract more pesty ants than they
do birds. Schaefer offers a simple
solution, moisten the hanging
wire with a little vegetable. oil.
Finally, for those, who, have
always wondered; why the" little
bird is called a._"hunminngbird,"
it's not because it sings. Schaefer
said the name was coined after
the buzzing, or "humming,"
sound produced by the fast move-
ment df the bird's wings.


nitaries and guests will be treated
to River Cruise and Glassbottom
Boat rides, along with a tour of
the Wakulla Springs Lodge con-
ference facilities. "
Edward Ball Wakulla Springs
State Park is located 16 miles
