Steve Anderson of Tallahassee gave the
County Commission a welcome but surprising
piece of information at its meeting Tuesday
evening, when he announced a California firm
had decided to locate a manufacturing plant in
Gulf County.
Tamara Laine, Chamber of Commerce ad-
minstrator, said she had been working with
Anderson and the firm, answering preliminary
questions and sending information. Tuesday,
Anderson visited the Chamber office again and
announced the company had decided to come
to Gulf County.
Line said, "They don't want anything. All
they want is our welcome and support. They
haven't asked for a building or anything."

which the County still owns-and agreeing to expand the service to

William 4. Rish representing Gulf cilltles in one ambulance and
staff it with trained personnel.
Rish said most of the inisun-
Hderstandings have been caused
by lack of communication with
each other and lack of funding.
He told the Commission Tuesday
hight. "If you think you have a
problem or someone comes to you
complaining about something, get

({Brian Upton, the administrator
or High Steeley, owner). Every
'story has at least two sides and
you should hear both sides before

The contract was for two
years with either party having the

Wells said, "It's a win, win,

Commissioner Billy Traylor dog-
gedly pursued, the matter until

Stating that it is a federal law
against smoking in public build-
ings, Traylor repeated his claim
that Gulf County is violating fed-
eral law by allowing the practice.
The only reason his suggestion
wasn't approved at the June 8
meeting was because some of the
county volunteer fire departments
'conduct bingo games in their fa-
cilities, to raise money for opera-
'ltions. Commissioner Michael
Hammond used this as ammuni-
tion to oppose the move.
In making his motion, Traylor
acknowledged some places may
be exempt from the smoking ban,
such as the fire station buildings,
the jail and the Sheriffs office,
but he wanted to include these lo-
cations in his motion with the

Anderson said Tuesday the firm manufac-
tures Wankle internal combustion engines. The
Wankle was first introduced about 20 years
ago by an American engineer and later pur-
chased by Mazda to power their vehicles. Their
plans are to employ approximately 200 people,
providing a day care center for their employees.
He gave no time schedule for the firm's arri-
val, but indicated it wasn't too far into the fu-
ture.
Anderson also said a second firm is consid-
ering Gulf County strongly to establish a plant
to manufacture turbine engines for the aircraft
industry. 'They have two locations in mind and
Gulf County is one of those two," he said.


H. V. Bridge


Tentatively


Opening Friday

Project Slightly Ahead of Schedule
Says DOT Information Spokesman
DOT Spokesman Tommy Speights of the Chipley office
told The Star Tuesday afternoon the Highland View
bridge would be open to highway traffic possibly as early
as this Friday. An opening time was not given, but hope-
fully. it will be early in the day.
Speights said the new highrise bridge was slightly
ahead of project schedule after nearly two years of con-
struction.
The people of Port St. Joe and the Beaches feel the
bridge is about 18 years BEHIND schedule. Local interests
and organizations have been working for the new bridge
and promoting its construction for that long a period of
time.
The new bridge will offer a non-interruptible avenue of
travel through the bottleneck of a sometimes cranky
drawbridge on U.S. Highway 98, where it crosses the Gulf
County Canal, a branch of the Intracoastal Waterway,
which stretches from Cedar Key to Brownsville; Texas.
Official opening ceremonies for the bridge dedication
have been set by the Port St. Joe Chamber of Commerce
for Tuesday, July 20, At that time the bridge will official-
ly be named the George G. Tapper Memorial Bridge.
The old bridge will be removed and utilized as a fish-
ing reef in the Gulf of Mexico, off the shores of Gulf
County. Removal of the bridge will be done by the prime
contractor as part of the entire construction package.
The bridge was built by L&A Construction Company
of Hattiesburg. Mississippi.

Old Drawbridge Slated for Reef to Continue Service


Being Added to
The Highland View bridge, after having
served as a link over the Intracoastal Canal for
the past 56 years, will continue its usefulness
after being decommissioned. The City of Port
St. Joe has received $40,000 in grant money
from the State of Florida to use for transporting
the dismantled bridge to the Gulf of Mexico to
'be used as a fishing reef. Shown in the photo-
graph are William Horn and Celso-Ariel Alaisa,
Environmental Specialists with the State of
Florida, delivering the grant money to Mayor
Frank Pate. Looking on is Bill Koran, Reef
Chairman.
The structure will form habitat and shelter
for fish in the gulf waters south of Port St. Joe.
The bridge will be dumped on the site of an ex-
isting reef, enhancing habitat for the abundant
variety of reef fish present in local waters. The
reef is located approximately three miles south-
west of the sea buoy marking the entrance to
the St. Joseph Bay.
REEFS ARE VALUABLE
Reef coordinator Bill Koran said that ac-
cording to a recent University of Florida study
on Sea Grants that for every dollar spent in
habitat restoration for reef fish, 11 dollars are
generated in income to related industries in the
area. '"When a community attracts a new fisher-
man, it is estimated that during a year's span,
that fisherman will spend $1,400 in the com-
munity for various services. Fishermen are not
* the only ones who benefit from reef restoration.


Fishing Reef System
The community derives additional income from
the fishermen who are attracted", stated Koran.
The permit process for utilizing the High-
land View Bridge as a fishing reef has been in
motion for the past two years. The State of Flor-
ida has approved the site and materials to be
used. Grant money is only available to govern-
mental entities, and it is hoped that more mon-
ey will be available in the future to develop the
state's fisheries, commercial and recreational.
GRANT MONEY FINANCING
In the past, reef grant money could only be
used for transportation of reef materials. Grant
money in the future can also be used to pur-
chase materials and construct modules. It is
hoped, according to Koran, to receive additional
grant monies, which can be used by Port St. Joe
High School marine biology students to assist
in constructing reef modules. Port St. Joe is be-
ing considered as a site for Florida State Uni-
versity's Marine Biology department's study of
reef monitoring on artificial reef systems since
this area has one of the more extensive reef
systems in the Panhandle. There are eight ex-
isting artificial reef sites in the area and any
reef material is added to these. No new. bottom
lands are taken up with reefs.
The Gulf County Commission has also es-
tablished a Artificial Reef Commission, with Ko-
ran as chairperson, which will work toward se-
curing grants for reef restoration.

Part-time Jobs Growing In Number


The headlines on a newspaper story recent-
ly, said, "More U.S. Workers Must Rely On
Temporary, Part-Time Jobs". The story went on
to develop the theme, saying that after decades
of government efforts to improve the lot of
workers may be slowing down job growth and
. helping to create a second-tier workforce with
. lower wages and fewer benefits.
It took "decades" to figure this out?
The sad thing is that the administration is
busily thinking up new things to hamstring
small business and new jobs, which will create
more second-tier workers. Employers are hiring
more and more temporary workers, part-time
employees, etc., in order to be able to face glo-
bal competition.
All these so-called benefits and protection of
the laboring force costs money. Sometimes, the
fringe benefits are a real factor for the employer
to consider before he hires another employee,
or expands his business thereby providing
more jobs.
Some figures to consider are:
-Virtually all of the job growth this year
had been in workers looking for full-time jobs
but having to settle for part-time work.
-Temporary employment agencies are
flourishing while the job market is nationally in
the doldrums. Their work force has nearly trip-
led in the past 10 years according to Labor De-
partment figures.
Such evident figures supporting the fact
that jobs are getting harder and harder to find
-good Jobs-due to the employers being sad-


died with more requirements.
This isn't to say the employer work place
doesn't need some restraints to keep from put-
ting employees in danger, offer retirement ben-
efits and such fringes, but some of the govern-
ment rules are asinine and expensive.
It's evident the government can't be trusted
to consider the. best interests of either workers
or employers. Some of the problem may be
credited to the type thinking which realized af-
ter decades of deterioration of good jobs in this


nation, that government is the cause. In other
words, we have seen the enemy and the enemy
is us.
Such things as mandated holidays, child-
care leave from the job place, minimum wage
for a less than minimum performance, medical
insurance at the employer's expense and a host
pf other things now mandated or being consid-
ered, are costing the nation new jobs every day
and driving jobs from our borders.
The administration could perform a very


valuable service for the working man of this na-
tion If they would just go over the current regu-
lations and toss aside the ones which do noth-
ing but cause business problems, causing them
expense which takes them out of the running
to be in competition with foreign products.
One example of government interference is
the free trade agreement with Mexico and Can-
ada. American business doesn't stand a chance
with that kind of competition. Let's keep the
ground even.

"Hello." It was a rarity for me.
With two teenage sons, I was ac-
tually answering the. telephone.
"Kes." A voice boomed across
the wire. A voice that I hadn't
'heard In at least fifteen years.
d "Banbir How In 'the world are

Robert Oliver Akin is one of a

Robert Oliver Akin was, and
Js, one of my all-time favorite peo-
ple.
I met him at the beginning of
fall football practice in August of
1967. I was a junior at the Uni-
versity of the South. Robert was
an incoming freshman.

and he was already talking about
setting records! Did I mention
that Robert wasn't short on belief
in his own ability?
We went to throwing the foot-
ball to him, and guess what? The
little hammer-knocker could
catch anything that got close. He
could run like a deer and was as
graceful on the football 'field as
anyone I've ever seen. He remind-
ed me of Lance Alworth, the great
wide receiver for the San Diego
Chargers.
He also played centerfield on
the. baseball team. He allowed as

close calls took place in that old

he near 'bout got me on the base-

They Just Built Their Ow Addition and Moved In


WE HAVE TENANTS at our
house. Or to be more candid, we
have new tenants in the big azal-
ea bush outside the downstairs
bathroom window. They're not
paying rent, with money, that is.
They are sort of paying for their
rent with "in kind' residuals.
The family set up housekeep-
ing about two or three weeks ago,
building their own house and an-
choring it between two limbs we
had, pruned recently and left a
convenient fork in the midst of
several other branches which ac-
cumulatively left a sturdy founda-
tion for this house.
It took the family of mocking
birds many trips for a week or so
to bring in their house, twig by
twig. A morsel of a cottony sub-
stance they picked up from some-
where. A scrap of cloth.
As they would bring in the
sticks, they would bustle around
winding each twig and morsel in
and out, making everything fit
snugly. Can't have a nest blowing


down in a high wind, you know.
Those two birds went about
nest. building just as if they did it
for a living and had a perfect set
of plans.
DID YOU EVER sit on' your
porch and watch mocking birds
build a nest? It's an experience.
One thing about mocking
birds; nothing comes within sight
or reach of their nest.
One day during the construc-
tion operation, our one-eyed out-
side cat made the mistake of
wandering between where the
bird was perched on top of the


patio cover and the bush contain-
ing the nest.
The mocking bird zoomed on
that one-eyed cat like a Stuka
dive bomber of World War II vin-
tage. After about a swipe or two
at the cat, in which the cat
swiped back with a paw, the bird
assessed the situation and real-
ized the cat was blind in one eye.
I began to feel sorry for that
cat. The bird would dive down
from off the utility room' roof or
off the top of the patio, striking
the cat with full force with his
beak on the blind side. The poor,
cat could only cringe and scoot


for cover.
That bird was vicious!
BUT THAT WAS nothing
compared to her activities after
'the little birds were born. She
was just as solicitous of the three
baby birds as she was protective
of the nest before they were born.
Last Saturday afternoon, I
watched those mocking birds for
about. a half hour while I was eat-
ing a sandwich. She made trip af-
ter trip, bringing in morsels for
the baby birds. She would deposit
one tidbit down a hungry up-
turned gullet and be off for some
more ... the unfed gullets Just a
cheeping for something to eat.
That bird made at least a doz-
en trips while I was watching and
was still at it when I left the
porch.
I have noticed every morning,
when I go out into the yard to
feed the squirrels, she is already
at the feeding bit again.
Those baby birds must never


get enough to eat. I'll bet that
mocking bird mother will be glad
when they are old enough to fend
for themselves.
But when the young birds
leave the nest the one-eyed cat Is
still hanging around waiting. I'm
waiting, too, to see what the
mother mocking bird will do then
Whatever it is I would bet the cat
will regret finding out more so
than the mother mocking bird.

A COUPLE OF YEARS ago, I
saw a plan in a magazine, com-
plete with directions and dimen-
sions, for a bluebird house no
bluebird could resist. It even went
so far as to give the diameter for
the entry hole and the distance
from the ground to mount the
house.
Well I followed the plans,
even putting the front on hinges,
so I could clean out the bird-
house after each use and mount-
ed it just like the directions said.
So far, I haven't had a single


bluebird use the house. One year,
after what I thought was the nest-
ing season, I opened the door to
clean it out and there was one
sparrow egg inside.'
On occasion I have found a
roach or two and sometimes a
frog curled up inside. Something
even left an acorn inside, but I
don't think the entry hole was
large enough for a squirrel to gain
entrance.
BUT, YOU SEE, that mocking
bird could have used the bird
house and had a safe dry place
for her young ones' to reach the
flying stage. She wouldn't have to
worry about them falling out of
the nest and gobbled up by a
one-eyed cat.
And, she could have given me
satisfaction that my doodling with
wood was being put to use.
But I guess mocking birds
are independent. They like to
fend for themselves. It's pity more
people aren't like that.

Dead Hose In The Road
Several times during the past few years I have written about the
"one-shoe-in-the-road" mystery. For many years I have wondered
how this phenomenon came about: One shoe in the road. Don't tell
me you've never seen one and didn't wonder how or what happened
to cause it to be there.
The thing that made me start noticing this strange occurrence
was the trip I made to Memphis one day several years ago. I was
just south of Jackson, Mississippi, when I noticed three shoes in
the road, all within a ten-mile distance of one another and none of
them matched. I wondered if I was following a used-shoe truck with
the back door open.
Since then I've kept a mental log of the number and types of
shoes I've seen in the roads I've traveled. And I've seen all kinds, ex-
cept, of course, a glass slipper. I found my Cinderella about 25
years ago, long before I started noticing shoes in the roads.
The strangest shoe I've seen and the one that provoked more
thought than any of the shoes I've seen was the one I found be-
tween Port St Joe and Wewahitchka, on Highway #71. It is a baby
shoe, one that might fit a toddler. The toe is scuffed and it has been
wee used, although it is far from being worn out.
When I spotted it, I stopped and backed up and picked it up. At
first all kinds of sinister thoughts raced through my mind, but after
thinking about it for some time I came to the conclusion that it was
not related to a sinister act at all. I concluded, (and hope) that a
child was put in the back seat of a car to take a nap he didn't want
to take and in retaliation he untied his right shoe and threw it out
the window. That's something one of my kids might have done and I
hope that's what happened.
Nevertheless, the white baby shoe is one of my prized posses-
sions. It sits In the bookcase to my immediate right, clearly visible
from any pqint in this room. It'is a right-foot, buster Brown, white
shoe, size 1/2 E/C. It appears to have fit a healthy child or an
unhealthy teenager.
Since my three-shoe encounter in Mississippi that day, I have
begun to notice other objects in the road. The South has an abun-
dance of wildlife that is often wasted because they like to play in the
road or on highways. Dead cats, dogs, raccoons, o'possums, deer
and sometimes humans virtually litter our roads, especially during
the spring and summer months. I have never been a hunter but I've
probably killed more deer with my car than most avid hunters have
with their guns. I have two notches on my steering wheel that I.
didn't want and I hope will be my lifetime limiL ,
The strangest thing I've seen lately was Just' last week and it
was on the road between Mexico Beach and Tyndall Air Force Base.,
When I first spotted it I thought it was a giant snake because it ap-,
peared to be moving. I immediately alerted my son who was sleep-
ing on the seat beside me. "There's a giant snake in the road. son!" I
said. "Get ready for a big bump because I'm going to run over him!"
"Dad," he said after looking down the road for a second. "slow*
down and get back on your side of the road. That ain't no snake;
that's a dead hose-in-the-road."
Well, he was right. It was a dead hose-in-the-road. But that
comment sparked an idea in my musical mind for a; good country
song. The. song will be; what else? "Dead Hose In The Road. The
first verse and chorus goes like this:
One day I was traveling' alone and blue,
Thinkin' only of little 'ole you.
When something in the road caught my eye;
I run off the road Just to get by.
Chorus: Dead hose. Dead hose. It weren't no rope in the road.
It was Just an'ole dead hose!

It was .a good thing that we
came in the truck.
Debbie and: Bambi hit it off
from the start. Deb couldn't go
anywhere without Too Tall. And
Bambi kept dragging me down
the mountain. Too Tall's mother
took all of this as a sign of my af-
fection for her daughter., She be-,

(ON C-30 SOUTH OF PORT ST. JOE) .,


Brian Upton, administrator of
Gulf Pines Hospital, gave the Ki-
wanis Club a little bit of an in-
sight of what to expect from Flori-
da's medical plan. In a word,
Upton said the state's plan was
best described as "a state of
chaos."
Attempting to explain the sit-
uation further, Upton's remarks
convinced the Kiwanians his first
remarks were close to being cor-
rect.
'Whatever happens on the
medical field, Florida is to be a
test state for the rest of the na-
tion," Upton said. "Both Florida
and Oregon are the only states
thus far to attempt to work out
their own medical expense relief
plans and possibly the, federal


government will end up telling all
the states to come up with their
Swn programs, rather than have
one operated and financed by the
government... if they ever get a
planin place," the speaker said.
Simply put, he said Florida's
plan is "indefinite". The speaker
said that whatever plan is adopt-
ed by state government, it will
more than likely benefit commu-
nity hospitals such as Gulf Pines.
'We're already seeing the results."
"Lpton said. He pointed out that
'the most relief he is beginning to
experience is the government eas-
ing or lifting some of its require-
ments formerly required of hospi-
tals.
So far the Florida Legislature,
has divided the state into 11 dis-


tricts. In these districts Is an
HRS-like organizations operating
with the status of a medical insu-
rance company. These commit-
tees are to meet with other insu-
rance companies and decide how
much they will pay for different
procedures, length of hospital
stay, doctors to be approved as
their providers and hospitals they
will recognize. If a doctor or hos-
pital is not approved by the
group, the district will not pay for
the medical services.
'The only thing wrong with
that concept," Upton said, "is that
it violates several federal .laws
against price fixing, and others
designed to protect the public."
The medical care aim is to
make quality service available to


everyone, with his choice of phy-
sician and reduce costs. What the
state has suggested thus far
doesn't sound very flexible, or
cost reducing. Of course, accord-
ing to Upton, the state hasn't
really come up with a plan to put
into operation as yet The best
still may be yet to come.
Upton summed up the situa-
tion by pointing out that the at-
tempts at reducing costs and pro-
viding quality care to everyone
has already helped community
hospitals to the point where they
can be real effective in whatever
plan is produced. "The plan
sounds good," Upton said, "If they
canJust figure outhow to make it
work. Right now, things are pret-
ty chaotic in the health care relief
business."'

proviso that the ban would be lift-
ed if further study reveals it Is
not applicable.
Hammond continued to talk
fast, furious and loud to exempt
the fire stations from the motion,
saying, "St. Joe Beach is paying
,us $30,000 this year and annual
installments on their new fire
truck, with bingo receipts. A
smoking ban will drive most of
their players elsewhere and we'll
be stuck with having to fund that,
fire truck!"
,Attorney Pat Floyd said he
hadn't researched the matter, but
said, "My gut opinion is that the
fire department buildings are not
excluded from the law."
S'Traylor said; "There is no
question about the Courthouse.i
It's included."
,Hammond didn't give up. He
quipped, "Do we want to go to the
expense of researching it?" i
When sides were drawn up
and a vote taken on the matter,
Commissioners Traylor, Yeager
and Chairman Peters voted to
snuff the smoking lamp out in all
Gulf County public buildings and
Commissioners Hammond and
Armstrong voted to allow smokers
to continue to puff merrily away.
ATTORNEY FEES BUDGET
OUT OF FUNDS -TRAYLOR
Commissioner Traylor alerted
his fellow' Commissioners that
their fund for paying attomneyjt
Floyd's legal advice bill wasquA4 f
funds as of the end of the current
month. 'We still have four
months to go in our budget year,"
he said. 'What do you want to
do? We can take money from
some other fund or we can do
without legal advice. for the re-
mainder of thefiscal yearr"
Traylor said the problem was
that the Board had funded the le-
gal budget based on former attor-
ney Bob Moore's service and then
changed attorneys after the bud-
get year started. "Nothing against
PaL" Traylor said,' "But we have
been paying more for attorney
fees and we didn't have the bud-
get to fund it"
Traylor stressed 'the need to
take definite action before the
month is gone, while Hammond
wanted to wait until one of the
regular meetings in July. Warren
Yeager said, "Sooner or later.
we're going to have to do some-
thing. We made a change in the
middle of the year and now we're
going to have to pay for it."
Traylor prevailed in present-
ing the urgency 'of the situation
saying, "It's only fair to Pat. the
'Board and the taxpayers that. we
-reach a decision before the end of


at Pelham. And he had us all
laughing about Too Tall'and her
mother.
"Kes, I'm writing a book
about it all. Naturally, it will be a
best seller...."
I'm not betting against it.

Respectfully,

Summertime is vacation time
for people, not plants! While get-

lawn, landscape, vegetable gar-
den, and house plants. A little

BIG

TOE AT

1 RISK
The big toe is the site of
one of the more common frac-
tures that are treated by the
podiatrist, caused when a
heavy object falls on. the toe.
The big toe is vulnerable to
fractures in such cases be-
cause there is a lack of pro-
tective tissue. The bone sec-
tion that extends to the front
of the toe is covered only by a
thin layer of dkin at the bot-
tom edge of the toenail.. ,
Someone whose job or pro-
jects at home pose risks that
heavy objects might fall on
the feet obviously should
wear protective shoes. Yet,
only one in four people who
have suffered job-related
foot injuries' wear safety
shoes, according to the Na-
tional Safety Council. If a fall-
ing object injures one or more
toes, see the podiatrist with-
out delay. Prompt examina-
.tion and treatment can
make a big difference in
successful healing.

time spent preparing your leafy
friend for you absence could save
you needless worry and hours of
extra work when you get back.
A vacation may be relaxing
and rejuvenating for you and
your family, but it can be hazard-
ous, even deadly, for your plants.
Unless you make adequate prep-
arations before leaving, you could
return to vegetative disaster. My
information on vacation plant


care was provided by Extension
Urban Horticulture Specialist Dr.
Robert J. Black, of the University
of Florida's Institute of Food and
Agricultural science.
On of the first things you
might do before leaving home is
ask a neighbor to check your
plants periodically while you're
gone. All plants need some care,
but during an extended vacation,
container-grown plants require

Bridge On,

Its Way Out
This is your last glimpse of
the old Highland View draw-
bridge you will probably see,
with the bridge intact. It is
scheduled to be torn down and
placed in the Gulf of Mexico to
form a fishing reef. It just
might start, disappearing
around the first of the week.


type.
Even if you can't find some-
one to personally look after your
plants while you're away, there's
plenty you can do prior to depar-
ture to make sure you don't come
home to a limp landscape and
sickly house plants. Outdoor con-
tainer-grown plants should be
placed in a shady area to con-
serve moisture. Under a tree, or
on the north side of a building
are good locations. A thick layer
of mulch will help conserve mois-
ture for landscape planting. Mow
your lawn just before leaving,
cutting the grass a little closer
than usual. an unkept lawn can
encourage disease, and it's a tell-
tale sign that no one's home.
Give lawn and landscape
plants 'a heavy watering-
especially recently planted beds
which will need extra moisture.
Also, thoroughly spray or dust
.your plants to protect them from
insects and diseases while you're
away. If you have flowering annu-
als, cut the blossoms before de-


parting-if you don't, they'll soon
stop blooming, harvest all ripe or
nearly ripe fruits and vegetables.
Like flowers, they will continue to
produce only if they're picked fre-
quently. Otherwise, they'll go to
seed.
Do a thorough job of weeding.
If weeds are allowed to go to seed
while you're away, you can expect
to encounter much more difficult
problems later in the -season-
even next year-when the seeds
sprout. Remember that weeding
eliminates a major source of com-
petition for your landscape
plants' food and water which may
be in short supply during your
absence.
Plants kept indoors require
special consideration. Before leav-
ing home, place your house
plants in a room which receives
indirect sunlight. Direct exposure
to the sun will dry the soil too
quickly. Of course, you don't
want to put your plants in a room
that's too dark, either. Too little
light will almost always result in
leaf drop. Just before you depart,
be sure to water your house
plants thoroughly. This is espe-
cially vital because-unlike lawn-
grass and landscape ornamen- *
tals-house plants cannot benefit
from any rain that may fall while
you're gone.
You'll enjoy your vacation
more by making sure your plants
are well-prepared for your ab-
sence.

Drivers who began the season in
good shape and achieved top
standings in the points races are
seeing their leads melt away as
late-starters work their way up
the ladder.
On Saturday night, June 19,
in the Street Division, points-
leader Jerry Cutchins wrecked
his race car in a heat race. His
good friend Rodney Levins, who
stands ninth in the points race
loaned; Jerry his car for the fea-
ture. Jerry finished a distant fifth
while Skipper Powell took the
win. Powell also won another
heat, which together moved him
into fourth place in the point
standings. Mario Lupi won the
other Street heat.
In the Super Street Class
points leader "Flyin' Bryan" Brog-
don won his heat but ran into
trouble in the feature. A melee
that was unavoidable occurred in
front of him. He had to settle for
an eighth place finish. His eve-
ning's work netted him only eight
points, while second place man
Darryl Rudd won his heat and
the feature to pick up 22 points.
Third place points man Robo
Hutchinson returned to racing af-
ter a recent illness. His anticipat-
ed battle with Brogdon and Rudd
faded 'when he developed me-
chanical problems in a heat race.
Buddy Boutwell, who started
the season way late in the Sports-
man Division, moved into fifth
place in the points race by virtue
of winning both the heat and fea-

New Rules Proposals by Marine Fisheries


for Bluefish, Stone Crab and Spotted Seatrout


mhe governor ana taDinmet
approved the following Marine
Fisheries Commission rule propo-
sals on May 25:
Bluefish--effective July 1,
designated as a "restricted spe-
cies," established a daily bag limit
of ten bluefish for recreational
fishermen, increases the mini-
mum size limit from 10 inches to
12 inches fork length, requires all
commercial harvesters to adhere
to statewide gear requirements
while fishing in state and federal


watersnorth of the Dade/Monroe
county line., requires bluefish to
be landed in a whole condition.
Stone Crab-This rule will
prohibit the use of any trap to
harvest stone crabs that has been
treated with petroleum products.
Spotted Seatrout-The Com-
mission received scientific and
public comment regarding the
spotted seatrout fishery, and di-
rected staff to draft rule language
that would: continue to allow the


harvest of seatrout by nets and
hook and line gear, change the
recreational maximum seatrout
size limit from 24- to 20 inches
(with a daily allowance of one fish
harvested over 20 inches), estab-
lish a daily recreational bag limit
for seatrout of three fish on the
east coast, two fish on the south-
west coast, seven fish in. the Big
Bend, and five fish in the Pan-
handle; establish a January/
February closed season for all


seatrout harvest statewide;
change the start of the commer-
cial harvest season from Novem-
ber 1 to March 1 statewide; re-
duce the average commercial
harvest levels for seatrout by 18%
on the east coast and 19.5% on
the west coast upon implementa-
tion of the rule, and apply the
same reductions again two years
later; establish a daily commer-
cial trip limit of 200 pounds of
seatrout per vessel; prohibit the


Safeguard Your Skin from the Sun


Dr. Betsy Beers, an assistant
professor of dermatology and pa-
thology at the University of Flori-
da College of Medicine, recom-
mends the following safeguards
to anyone planning on being ex-
posed to the sun:
Avoid excessive sun expo-
sure between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
when the sun's ultraviolet rays
(UV) are the strongest. UV rays
are intensified} by reflective sur-
faces like water, sand, and snow,
and can penetrate three feet be-
low the water's surface.
Apply generous amounts of
sunscreen with a Sun Protection
Factor (SPF) of at least 15 an
hour before going in the sun. A
broad-spectrum sunscreen blocks
out the sun's UVB rays and re-
duces exposure to the sun's UVA
rays.
Wear protective clothing
like long-sleeved cotton shirts,
and hats. Lighter colors block
more of the sun's damaging rays
because .they .reflect the light,


while darker colors allow more
sun exposure because they ab-
sorb more light. All-around brim


hats are best because they afford
the face and neck more protec-
tion.

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, JUNE 24, 1993 PAGE 3B


Gems from My Garden


[Cloud is a former resident of
Port St. Joe, educated in local
schools and -'s a son of Mr. and,
Mrs. Charles Cloud. He is a mtnis-
ter and an author.]
"Listenl A farmer went out to
sow his seeds." (Mark 4:3)
Jesus begins the parable with
the admonition to "Listen." His
first' audience had heard that
word before, but not outside of
the temple. "Hear, 0 Israel, the


Lord your God is One" was the
usual Call to Worship in the Tem-
ple. Jesus offers a radical ihvita-.
ti6n for us to "Listenl" not just in
the Temple, but on the seashore,
and in the garden. God has a lot
to say to us. But He does' not al-
ways do it in the context of formal
church worship. The whole earth
is His true altar. That does not
mean we can stop going to the
temple. But God's voice Is not.
limited to the cloistered corridors. '


He speaks in other places. But to
hear Him, we have to listen.
Jesus 7may not have been .a
gardener, but he certainly paid
close attention to'what they did.
He loved to talk about sowing,
seeds, and soils. Mark 4 contains
t three parables about such. We
are most familiar with the parable
of the Sower. Some call it the Par-
able of the Seeds, others the Par-
able of the Soils. Gardening is
never a one-dimensional activity.
Like life, there are a lot of things


to consider. Planting is one. Ho*
you sow, when you sow, and
where you sow.do make a differ-
ence. Spring has seemed to6 come
early this year. I have a hard time
holding back in such weather.
"When those 80 degree days start,
I want to garden. But it is much
.too early for some things. Gar-
dening teaches you that timing is
sometimes everything. There is a
"time. to plant." But you can't
rush that time. The warm wbath-
er of late winter turns so fast to
the chillinng frosts of early spring.
Gardening makes you learn to
" trust God and wait. It is a risk.
Badt such is life. That Is the mys-
tery of the Parable of the Sower--.
the same guy did the planting.
And he had a 75% failure rate.


His sowing was unsuccessful in
three out of the four situations.
The birds got some of his seeds. I
guess he had never heard of a
scarecrowl Some of his seeds fell
on the walking path. He needed
:to make some adjustments in his
spreader. And some of his seeds
fell on rocky soil. It germinated
and grew quickly. But don't eat
your peas before you get them
t shelled. A lot can go wrong be-
tween seed time and harvest.
, What looks like success can
Quickly turn bad. Remember
those frosts. Watch for those
worms and bugs. Beware of rab-.
bits, they can eat it faster than it
grows. Just because it's green
.and it grows does not mean that
the harvest will be great. "Man


looks on the outward appearance,
but the Lord looks at the heart."
(1 Samuel 16:7). I have seen too
many gardens like Saul; tall,
handsome, and promising. But
no fruit was ever harvested.
By our modem standards of
success, the Sower in Jesus' par-
able was a failure. A 25% suc-
cess rate will not get you garden-
er of the year awards. But loss
did not and does not hinder; har-
vest Some seeds sown do not
grow. that is a menace, a mysteri-
ous evil. But some seeds do grow.
The ones that did yielded a
bumper crop-thirty, sixty, and
even a hundred fold. Harvest is
always a miracle. There are losses
in gardening as in life. But loss
does not hinder harvest

High School'
By Larry A. Mathes

The second semester of summer school Issunderway, and as al-
ways, there are some who did not show up-which will affect pro-
motions, athleUc eligibility, grade point average, and even gradua-
tiorn in some cases. It's amazing -how little concern some show-
then later these same "no-shows" want to know what can you do to
help them? '
Still short I football game-Coach Flowers is searching every-
one within a four to five hour driving radius. That puts you almost
to Gainesville (on a Bluebird).
I'm surprised public school parents haven't put more pressure
on the Florida High School Activities Association about separating
public and private school competition. A quick glance at recent
playoff history shows private schools dominating all Class A sports,
and quite a few Class AA sports. Public schools are in a position
where we cannot press the Issue without the probability of being
S sanctioned. Parents of public school children, on the other hand.
are beyond the reach of the FHSAA. When these parents fully real-
ize that the advantages enjoyed by private schools are allowing
them to compete unfairly against public school teams, I suspect
that enough will pressure the FHSAA to divide to two divisions and
level the playing field. Until then, look for private schools to contin-
ue to win nearly every regional, sectional, and state championships
in most class A-AA sports. However, pressure may not be enough.
Court action is usually needed to force the FHSAA that the current
set-up is biased and favors the private schools.
Principals have been meeting, trying to reach agreement on
changes in the consequences in the discipline codes. The movement
is towards making students and their parents responsible for their
actions at school. Class interruptions have reached a point where
they have become intolerable. Past efforts, using detentions, pad-
dling, and 'short term in-school suspensions have proven ineffec-
tive, and most now feel that students that repeatedly cause prob-
lems need to spend more time with their parents. It's not fair to
students that are trying to learn to be continually interrupted by
those who want to play their way through school.
