Schools Tighten Up On Rules for New Term


Board Modifies Suggested Code of Conduct,


Pupil Progression Rules Change


Every student will
receive copy of the
Code of Conduct on
the first day of
school; full explana-
tion by school staff.
For the first time, Gulf
County Schools will start a ses-
sion with a definite plan, in writ-
ing, of how to handle discipline
problems. The plan also provides
certain punishments for certain
offenses up to and Including ex-
pulsion from the various schools
throughout the county.
All Code of Conduct plans for
every elementary school in the
county contain the same lan-
guage, making them uniform
throughout the system. The two
high schools in the county have
slightly different codes, merely
because the Port St. Joe High
School adopted their plan first
and it doesn't quite fit the Wewa-
hitchka High School plan. "They
will be the same next school
year," Port St. Joe principal Wes
Taylor, said.
RESULT OF COMMITTEE
The plans of conduct in the
five schools this year are there
due to a series of planning meet-
ing conducted by a committee of
interested citizens and school
professionals over the past year.
The proposed behaviour offenses
and penalties applied are the
committee's recommendation to
the Gulf County School Board,
which has been unimously adopt-
-f ....... -ed.. '_ _* .... .. .. .. ... .- -
Port SL Joe High School Prin-
cipal Wes Taylor said, 'This i:s
something we have never had be-
fore in any of the schools. In the
past, we have generally meted out
punishment based on our own
Judgment. We had nothing writ-
ten down on paper to go by. It.
has been sort of a hodge-podge
method of maintaining discipline
and governing conduct in. the
past."
Under the new rules, the mis-
conduct is spelled out, such as:
failure to follow directions; defi-
ance of authority; theft; threats;
assault on students and/or
teachers; fighting; defacing or,
damaging school property, etc.
Penalties are spelled out for
every offense-and a procedure to
follow in its- application. Offenses
are defined- for the number of oc-
casions, as well as the type of
misconduct.
If a student has six office-re-
ferrals under his belt, he knows,
from the language on the code,
that he is facing. 10 days out-of-
school suspension and/or recom-
mendation for expulsion.
The plan is tough, but is fair,
.according to school officials.


Mainly. it spells out what is a
punishable offense and just how
much punishment a student can
expect.
EVERY PUPIL BEING
FURNISHED COPY
The plan will be in force on
the first day of school. Copies are
being made available Lo every stu-
dent on the first day of school.:


The rules will be explained in an
open assembly and in each indi-
vidual class. 'A copy will be sent
home by the student. so parents.
will be acquainted with it.
Each one of the reports has a
section which the ,parent, can re-
move and send back to the
school, giving their comments.
Return of the signed form also act--
knowledges that the parent has


seen the code.
NO THREAT
,'We're not threatening nor
hard-timing students in Gulf
County," Superintendent of
Schools Walter Wilder said.
'We're just putting our code of
conduct in writing for the first
time. It's for the good of the
school system as well as for the
student."

Fishing Reef Lation

Pinpointed In Gulf


Two Miles Due
The old Highland View draw-
bridge is taking its place at the
bottom of the Gulf of Mexico, as a.
fishing reef and is already en-
hancing an existing reef by at-
tracting more fish to the area, ac-
cording to Corbett Howell, a Port
St. Joe scuba diver, who is a local
advisor and coordinator for the
reef project.
The new enlargement for
the 20-year-old Jaycee reef is
located in 65 feet of water, two
miles west 'of the Sea Buoy
[number 1] according to Howell.
The coordinates are Latitude
290 50', and Longitude 85 29'
20". .
Howell said the reef is pres-
ently not as large as it will be
when it is finished. 'They're still
transporting part of the bridge to.
the site," he said. The bridge


West of Sea Buoy
structure has already been placed
on the reef site b.ut loads of rip
rap, small pieces and other mate-
Srial which has been donated still
have to be hauled to thd site, he,
said.
'"When it is finished,, the reef.
will 'be about a quarter mile
square," Howell said.
The now defunct drawbridge
at Highland View' was the target
of several fishing reefs in Florida,
but, with the support of Gulf
County's delegation hii the Florida
Legislature. local interests were
successful in securing it for Gulf
County.
Efforts by Senator Pat Thom-
as and Representative Robert
Trammell secured designation of
the old bridge for submersion in
the Gulf of Mexico, where it now
rests.


Modified Student


Plan of Progression

The Gulf County School Board accepted a modified Pupil
Progression Plan Tuesday morning, putting the plan into place
just days before school was to begin.
The Plan, as presented, made changes in grading periods,
grading methods and excused absences the Board could not ac-
cept.
The Plan, adopted from the work of a citizens and education
professionals committee, recommended the schools place lower
elementary grades on a nine week grading period with parents
being alerted mid-way through the term of their pupil's progress.
Board members James Hanlon and Oscar Redd, questioned the
advisability of adopting such a system. Superintendent Walter
Wilder agreed, saying, "Nine weeks is too long to wait on a report
of how your child is doing in school."
In addition, the plan called for a change in grading from use
of the A, B, C. system to use of a S, N, U, grading system from
Kindergarten through third grade.
Port St. Joe Elementary School principal Gerald Lewter
spoke in favor of the new grading system saying, "A child this
age doesn't need to be told on his report card that he is a failure
by placing "F's" on the card."
The Board compromised with the Plan proposal by changing
the grading system to the use of S. N and U for grades kinder-
garten through grade two.
APPROVED ABSENCES
Another recommendation by the committee regarding ex-
cused absences also met the blue pencil of the Board and was
adopted in modified style.
The Plan stipulated the circumstances under which an ex-
cused absence would be granted, but when the fourth absence
of the year rolled around, the proposed plan tightened'up con-
siderably. The Plan presented to the Board for approval stipulat-

Quarantine Placed On GCI

SInstitute; Case of Tuberculosis Prompts Quick Action


A threatened epidemic of tuberculosis in
the Gulf Correctional Institute state prison
north of Wewahitchka 'has apparently [par-
"don the pun] been locked up before it got
loose, according to prison superintendent
Ron McAndrew, Wednesday.
The superintendent said to date only one
of the 685 inmates in the prison has been
found with an active case of the disease. "A
few others have tested 'positive' to the dis-
ease, but that's not unusual in a group of
people this large,' McAndrew said.
"The entire inmate population has been
placed under quarantine until we can test
everyone-inmates and security officers
alike," McAndrew stated. He said yesterday
morning that all personnel and inmates had
been tested with the exception of those per-
sonnel who are off work for one reason or an-
other. "They are being tested as fast as we
can locate them." the superintendent said.
McAndrew said the one patient who had
been found with an active case of tuberculo-
sis had a history of the disease and associa-


tion with those who had it. He had been vac-
cinated for the disease, as a child, in a
foreign country' and had later contracted tu-
berculosis. He had a history of testing posi-
tive for the disease.
'We are advising those testing 'positive' in
our testing program, to contact their physi-
cian for an X-ray. We are giving X-ray exami-
nations to inmates who fail to pass the test-
ing program," McAndrew said.
At the present time, the entire inmate
population is under quarantine, with none
being reviewed and none being transferred to
other prisons. The superintendent said re-
sults of their precautions should be known
by early next week. "At this time, we will
probably be able to lift the quarantine and ;
the emergency will be over."
Tuberculosis is an infectious disease that
usually attacks the lungs. It is highly contag-
ious-and transmitted by: airborne germs ex-
pelled into the air when an infected person
coughs or sneezes. A vaccine is administered
to prevent it, and medicine is used to treat it.


Young Moti Two Small Children Victims In Blaze Friday
A young mother and her two small children perished in aY
mobile home fire at Mexico Beach Friday at abott 11 p.m., Cen-

Patricia Caswell, 29; her three-year-old daughter, Sarah Ni-

a blaze which destroyed their home on Georgia Avenue.
Les Nelson of the State Fire Marshall's office investigated the
incident and still hadn't ruled on the cause of the blaze late
Tuesday afternoon, according to Mexico Beach Police Chief Jdeff
Sellers. Sellers said, "It's hard to determiine just what .caused it.
It could be a number of things from faulty' wiring to a pan of
, grease :left on the cook stove," he said. Sellers said the report
from the coroner's office in Pensacola, where the bodies were
taken for examination, still hasn't been received, leaving the def-
inite cause of death undetermined.
According to investigating officers, Ms. Caswell and her chil-
dren had been gone from home during the evening, but they re-

Shape Up


Or Ship Out
-GULF COUNTY SCHOOLS are putting their collective foot
,down and saying, "Shape up, or we'll ship you out!" in the vari-
ous schools throughout the County this year. Almost without ex-
ception, the school's citizens advisory committee has come up
with the recommendation to maintain discipline in the schools
as the first step toward doing an effective job teaching our chil-
dren. It's a given that a student can't be taught If he is distract-
ed, or you cannot get his attention.
In writing these few words to go in this particular space, the
writer has to have no distractions or the thoughts stray, vacat-
ing the subject at hand.
It has long been known that distractions, disruptions, inat-
'tenttveness and class disturbances have been some of the major
causes Johnny doesn't learn to read or figure. .. or the cap-
ital of North Dakota.
Another major cause is lack of encouragement at home; but
that's another subject.
These are essential items in the matter of learning. We've
been speculating and talking for years about this problem and
now that someone has been brave enough to name the actual
culprit which is limiting the effectiveness of the class room, the
school is making a, stand behind a set of rules designed to cur-
tal, this disruptive activity.
IT'S NOT ONLY THE local school setting down these rules.
:They are backed up by the State Department of Education. Actu-
'ally, the wording and the penalty for disturbing the peace of a
class room setting are those of the DOE in Tallahassee.
The teacher will demand attention and behavior of the stu-
dent. They will be backed up by the School Board which in turn
will be backed up by the Board of Education of the State of Flori-

Last, but by no means the least, the rules and penalties are
1eing demanded by the entire public. Remember, a cross section
of parents sat on this local committee. They are in agreement
-that something like the set of rules had to be put In place. They
unanimously recommended them and they stand firmly behind
.them.
So, kids, welcome to a school where disruptions will be dealt
:with swiftly and firmly.


Thanks, George
IT WAS .A NICE GESTURE by George Boyer, representing
his family; to offer the Bryant's Landing property, on the Chipola
River, to the County to use as a public landing.
We 'have spent many Saturdays In the past at Bryant's Land-
ing, gaining an entrance to the Chipola and Apalachicola rivers
for an afternoon of wetting a hook. We remember it as a fine.
landing,.being on the undisturbed waters of Lockey Lake, where
there are no currents to interfere with the launching or retriev-
ing of a boat. The launch site is out of the mainstream of traffic
on the river and its surroundings are a peaceful scene.
,No doubt' the .Boyer family finds it next 'to impossible to
maintain help at the landing, as would'be expected at a""'f6r'
charge" landing and the family has dwindled or moved away to'
the point where there aren't many to look after the area as they
should.
Since Boyer has other interests, we suppose he felt it best to
sell the landing or give It to the County to operate.
WE'RE PLEASED HE CHOSE to offer the site to the County.
Gulf County has been offered a valuable gift, if only from the
standpoint that County property for recreation of any kind on ei-
ther of the twd rivers which flow through the County, is scarce.
We don't think all boat landings should be publicly owned
ajd operated, but we think there should be at least one or two,
preferably in good locations.
The location of Bryant's Landing, which is an old, estab-
lished landing, is in a choice spot. It's located half way between,
;the two population centers in the County and offers good natu-
ral launch facilities.
THERE WILL PROBABLY BE A few who will oppose the ac-
ceptance of the property, by the County. We hesitate to figure
what their reason might be, but there will be opposition. You
can count on that. Opposition has a way of raising its head on
almost anything, We go on record as saying,. 'We appreciate the
gift," even though it has been a couple of years since we have
,used the landing. Nobody can say we have a selfish interest. We
J,ust want to see the quality boat launch site maintained in its
present use; that of a fine boat landing, conveniently located.

The "Other" Rapid Robert


I remember my mother's last
bit of advice (It came right after
the clean underwear speech) as I
.embarked on my college career.
"Son, choose your friends careful-
'Yes, Ma'am."
"Some people out there will


pretend to be your friend when
they really are not.'
'Yes. Ma'am."
"Do be careful about who you
run around with."
'Yes, Ma'am."
"If you have any doubts, you
stay away from--"


"I got 'ya, Mom. I'll be extra
careful."
"Son, you're from a small
town, and I'm afraid your father
and I have kinda sheltered
you.;..."
"Mom, it will be alright!"
Even through the loneliness
ofthat first night, the empty feel-
ing way down in the pit of my
stomach, the,few silent tears: that
I couldn't fight back, the thought
kept turning over in my mind,
"Just exactly ,who was it that
Mom was so adamant that I stay
away from?"
"Hello, I'm Bob White."
We shook hands. I liked this
guy's smile right away.' It seemed
like I'd met five hundred people in
the first week of school.
"Where you from. Bob?"
"Cleveland."
"CLEVEIANDI Ain't that up
north somewhere?"
A YANKEE! I'm not sure I'd
ever seen one before. At least, not
up close and personal. My moth-
er's warning came, rushing back.
It couldn't hurt to talk to him.
"How'd you git .way down
here?" I used my best dixie-fried
accent on the "how'd" and "git" so
he'd know, right off which side I
was on..
"I didn't get accepted at
Washington and Lee."
Robert York White, Jr., I
learned immediately, was abso-
lutely forth-right and ,honest.
Those were traits I'd always
thought were sadly lacking when
you got north of Frankfort, Ken-

I've Thoht About It And Can't Figure How They Do That

that. Fortunately, I was working
most of my waking hours back
when my kids were that age and
wasn't quite so accessible. They
were available by telephone so I,
didn't miss out on it entirely.
But, it seems like, back when
my kids were young and of a
"borrow the car" age, the car was
always out of gas when I got it
back. I couldn't understand how
they did most of their traveling
since I have always had a fetish
about gas tanks; when they are


half empty, I start hunting a gas
station.
If one of the kids borrowed
the car right after another kid
had used it and given it one of its'
infrequent rest stops, and before I
had a chance to use it again-
and fill it up with gas-he, or she,
had to exhort that teenage magic
they use to promote a little gas
money.
This is where a teenager is at
his [or her] best. They can get
more miles out of an empty tank
than I can manage off a full one.
NOW, I AM A grandfather,

much. The car still comes back,
running on empty.
It doesn't even matter how
much gas it had in it when it was
borrowed. If. it had a tank full,
.they use up a tank full. If it was
half fill, they use up a half tank
and on and on.
Regardless of how much or
how little gas the old buggy had
in the gas tank, it' comes. back
gasping on fumes.
The' other, day, a grandson
had to borrow my truck. It had
nearly a full tank of gas in It, but
I really didn't mind that he used
It up. You fuss at your kids for.
using all the gas,', but somehow,
you're more indulgent with grand-
children when they empty the gas
tank. I'm just amazed at the mile-
age they're able to get out of a
.couple gallons of gas.
He had to go to Panama City


twice to.play a ball game, to We-
wahitchka once to take the nelgh-.
bor boys fishing, back to Panama.
City to play another baseball
game, then a trip or two to the
beach. When he brought it back
to me, he remarked, "Papaw, the
gas is a little low. You may have
to get some before you go any-
where outof town."
Out of town! That truck,
wouldn't even back out of the
driveway on the gas left in the
tank How did he he do It? How
did he ration the gas in the truck
to where it used every drop to get
it back home?
THAT'S WHAT I mean, when
I ask, "How do they, do that?"
Anothei- driver grandson bor-
rowed my station wagon to go to
Wewahitchka to practice softball.
I was surprised .'by that request
but,I was at least prepared for it.
The car was low on gas. I told the
grandson, "Sure you can use it,
but it's low on gas. You may have


to put some in it."
It made it back to the house,
but it would go no further. "I only
had $3.00, Papaw, and I was
hungry! I didn't have enough
money to buy gas and eat, so I,
ate. I had enough gas in the car
though."
He did, too. It just didn't have
enough after he parked it to get
to town. How did he do that?
I HAVE BEEN through the
teenage 'driving experience my-
self. I really had to be adept at
making a molecule of gas go as
far as it possibly could. When I
.was a teenager, the whole family
couldn't get but three gallons a
.. week, what' with rationing, so we
had to really scrounge to come up
with some fuel I
But I never was as good at
wringing the miles out.of a gallon
of gas as today's teenagers are.
Possibly if I had been, we might
not have had to go through the
rationing experience in WW II.

Little Things To Do Around The House .
My wifi and I were discussing our retirement plans a few days
'ago, and I told her there was nrio need to make any other plans be-
cause if I ever were financially able to retire, I couldn't. When she
asked why, I told her that I have so much to do that if I were retired
right now I wouldn't be caught up before my 65th birthday, which
is a decade or so away. '
She, of course, didn't understand because she doesn't know all
the things'I have to do before I can comfortably retire. However, it's
not 'the big things that bother me: It's the little things that confront
me day to day that almh6t drive me crazy. Is it that way with you?
For Instance, Flhave been meaning to oil-the hinges on our front
doorfor several years, but I Just haven't gotten around to it. When
I've had time, I have forgotten it. Each morning when I go to get the
paper, though, I'm reminded of the loud squeak. No. I don't have
time in the morning and besides, I don't feel like doing it early in
;the morning.
Another' thing has bothered me for several years. It's the light
on the ceiling fah in the master bedroom., It won't light, and I've
been meaning to take it apart and see what's wrong with It. I spend
most of my time in there sleeping. though.
The vines growing up the dog pen fence have been another con-
stant source of irritation to me. Several months ago I clipped them
as best I could and then poured weed killer on the roots, but they
are back again this summer. I know what needs to be done. but do-
ing it is another stoly.
One Job I dead and hate to tackle Is cleaning out our storage
shed&I don't understand how it gets so messed up. Two years ago I
cleaned everything out of It and had it stacked neatly back In. Now I
'can hardly get in the door. No one else at our house messed It up,
so .I 'guess the "mess-up" burglar has been visiting our house at
night.'. -" :''* -* '
One'day,when I 'get time, I'm going to clean up this desk I write
on. My wife cleaned up everything on it when we had the wedding
party here, but I put it all back this morning. Most of this stuff Is
just too important to throw away.
When I can think to bring the ladder home one day, I'm going to
saw off that limb that hangs so low on the pine tree by our back
'yard. It scrapes my truck each time I drive under It and sooner or
later Is going to ruin a paint job. Of course. I could just back out of
the driveway, but that would be too simple.
And I keep wanting to replace the trim that was broken off
down In our den. but I just haven't gotten around to it. It would
probably take about ten or fifteen minutes, but who's got that much
time? Guests would have to look close and be very picky to even no-
tice it. I'm just waiting for someone to say something about it being
missing. I'm going to tell them If it bothers them. replace it-them-
selves.
And then there's the commode handle that needs replacing and
the back door that needs painting and utility room that needs
cleaning and about a zillion other things that need to be done
around here. I would jump up and start on them right now but if I
got half of them completed there would be that much more plus
some added to the list tomorrow.
So, What's the use? One hundred years from now, no one will
ever know the difference!

1,700 Pot Plants Destroyed

In Joint Effort By Law Agencies .. .


Over 1,700 marijuana plants, ranging in size from six inches to nine feet
tall, with an estimated street value at maturity of 170,000, were discovered
and destroyed by the Gulf County Sheriffs office and members of the Florida
Game Commission Monday afternoon near the Stone Mill Creek area.
It was the largest single crop of marijuana to be found growing in Gulf
County. The patch of healthy plants was located through a tip furnished the De-
partment. Another large crop was located by aerial search two years ago grow-
ing in "The Nook" area just east of Wewahitchka, adjacent to the Dead Lakes.
According to Gulf County Sheriff Al Harrison, Robert LeviAndrews, of 519
Bayou Avenue, Panama City, recently living in the Honeyville area, has been
lodged In the Gulf County Jail, charged with cultivation and possession of mari-
juana, as a result of the investigation and interdiction of the crop of marijuana.
Harrison explained that his office had received information Sunday, August
1, that marijuana plants were being cultivated in the Stone Mill Creek area. The
plot was located and a stake-out set up in hopes of catching someone tending
the crop.
"We were, fortunate, that we only had to wait a short period of time for An-
drews to arrive and be observed pruning the plants. by officers." the Sheriff
Said.
At the time of his arrest Andrews reportedly had a bag of the controlled
substance in hand that he had been observed pruning from the plants.
A 1978 Ford was also confiscated and searched, revealing additional mari-
juana hidden in the dash of the automobile.
Sheriff Harrison and his officers cut down the field of plants and will burn
them after holding them for a period of time for evidence against Andrews.


Sheriff Al Harrison shows the size of some of the mari-
juana plants destroyed by his Department Monday evening.

Bob Shipman, of the Game and Fish commission hauls a
load of marijuana plants out of the woods, qfter they were
cut down by Sheriffs Deputies. Sheriff Al Harrison and
Chief of Deputies Jack Davila prepare to inspect the load.

Priest Speaks

to Kiwanis

Club Tuesday
Port St. Joe's new head foot-'
ball coach and athletic director,
Fred Priest, spoke to the Kiwanis
Club Tuesday, giving the mem-
bership a verbal sketch of what
his philosophy would be during
his coaching duties at Port St.
Joe High School.,
Coach Priest said, "So that
you will know why I do what I do
and why I advocate what I advo-'
cate can best be described by the
fact that Iam a Christian who
happens to be. a football coach."'
Priest went on to tell the club
that his philosophy will govern
his every action as he 'tries to
guide his young charges into re-
sponsible leaders. '. .
"One of the problems with
our- nation today is that our
young people are getting no fa-.
ther figure discipline. They can't i
help this but, I think it is my job
to be this father figure for them
as well as guide them into being a
cohesive football team." Coach


/ Proverbs 31:10-31 is a beautiful picture of a
godly woman. It is a description of my mother,
Frances Chafin. She has been the most influen-
tial person in my life. We were the best of friends
and the closest of friends. She taught me how to
be a woman, a wife, a mother, and a Christian.
She led me to know the Lord Jesus Christ as my
personal Saviour when I was a young child.
From that early beginning, she was my mentor
in the Christian faith-encouraging me to love the
Lord, to study His Word, to follow in His foot-
steps, to seek to know His will for my life, and to
serve Him with all my heart. She was always
there to guide and direct me, and she was al-
ways ready to lend a listening ear. Even as a
child I realized what a special relationship we
had.
Ten years ago this coming Labor Day Week-
end, I came face to face with the prospects :of
losing Mother. She and Daddy were in a head-on
automobile collision. Bill and I had just arrived
at a'friend's time share condo on the East Coast
for a much needed Vacation when we received
word of the accident. We packed up, left the con-
do, and drove to Orlando where I caught a plane
to Panama City. During the drive to Orlando, I
spent the time talking with the Lord and remi-
niscing. Finally, I came to the conclusion that I
had so much to be thankful for-forty-five years
with the most wonderful mother anyone could
ever want, and if God chose to take her at this
point, I would thank Him for those wonderful
forty-five years. It was at this point that I gave
her to the Lord. I released my grip or will to keep
here and gave her to God. You know the out-
come, God miraculously healed her body and let
us have her for another ten years. She told me
after she had recovered that she knew that God
had allowed her to live for a purpose. She felt,
that she should do whatever, she could to help
others around here.
Not too many years after the accident, she
began to exhibit the symptoms of:Alzheimer's
Disease. As the symptoms progressed and her
memory became Impaired, I did lose Mother.
This was an extremely difficult time for me. She
was still here in the flesh, but mentally she was


Priest went on to say that polls
show that only 25% of the na-
tion's youth have a father who
disciplines them and helps with
their guidance toward maturity.
"I don't know the youth, yet,
who are playing football," Priest
said. "I haven't met them all and
haven't been here long enough to
know about many of them, but I
know about your reputation as a
football team, and I like what I
have seen. I was coaching in Clay
County when the Sharks met
Bolles Academy In Jacksonville in
the playoffs. I saw that game and
the character of your football
team was evident," the speaker
Priest said he has met his
staff here in Port St. Joe and
finds them all to be good, experi-
enced and, capable men. "Al-
though. I didn't select my assist-
ants myself. I am very pleased
with the entire staff I inherited."


not here. She was no longer a mother to me. I
became a Mother-figure to her, a care-giver. I
went through the stages of doubting and griev-
ing. I could no longer share everything with her.
She did not understand. Many times I would
catch myself thinking that I would tell Mother
about this or that and get her opinion. Then I
would realize that I could no longer'do this. Car-
ing for ai 'Alzheimer's patient is not an easy
task. That is an understatement! Many times I
would sit down and cry because of the frustra-
tion.
Were it not for my two fathers, I would not
have survived so well emotionally. My Heavenly
Father gave me the strength, comfort, energy,
and safety that I needed to keep going, as I drove
up from southwest Florida each month for a
year and drove down from DeFunlak Springs
each week for over a year. to help Daddy care for
Mother. My earthly father, Milton Chafln, gave
me the most beautiful example of Christian love
and devotion as he lovingly cared for Mother.
You will neyer know what he has gone through,
but I can tell you that he was faithful to the end
as he loved and cared for Mother in health and
in sickness.
God does not tempt his children, but He
does allow testing. I look back on these experi-
ences as God building character in my life. Fre-
quently He needs to help us with our character
building. God used Mother to build character in
my life. He wants-His children to grow and ma-
ture in their relationship with Him. I found that'
it helps to put the backdrop of the cross behind
every experience. God's love for me has already
been settled. No matter what comes my way, I
know that God loves me because He gave His
most precious gift, Jesus Christ. to die for my
sins that I might be made worthy of being His
child.' I know that I am His and He will see me
through. God's love for Mother has already been
settled. She was in the center of His love
through health and sickness. She has run the

ed what constituted an excused absence and any deviation
should be granted only after a student's parents had been con-
tacted and a special committee summoned to action by petition
of the student and parent, who would decide whether the cause
of the fourth absence Justified being excused or not. If not, the
student received a failing grade for the six weeks.
Hanlon argued that he, had reports of students signing their
own requests for a hearing and he wanted to stop that pracUce
and make certain the policy was followed In all schools.
Temple Watson, assistant to the superintendent, had input
for the ruling saying the requirement of a doctor's report for a
student whose excuse said he was ill, was too strict. 'There are
many times a student is too ill to come to school, but his par-
ents don't take him or her to a doctor."
The Board finally adopted the Plan after making it clear that
each principal understood that parents should be contacted
about their absentee children and the principal was to be given
the leeway of Judgment on personal knowledge of circumstances
to ensure that the rules were applied in every Instance. A failing
grade for a fourth absence, not excused, was left in the approved
plan.

Exchange Program Looking for

To Host Foreign High School Students


Foreign high school students
will be arriving soon into the Port
:St. Joe area for homestays, and
the sponsoring organization -ur-
gently needs a few more local
host families fok their upcoming
academic programs. ,
According to Pacific Intercul-
tural Exchange (P.I.E.) Executive
Director John Doty, the students
are all between the ages of 15 and
;18 years, have their own spend-
ing money, are fully insured and
are anxious to share their cultu-
ral experiences with thier new
American families, P..E. current-
ly has programs to match almost
every family's needs, ranging in


length from a semester to a full
academic year, where the stu-
dents attend local high schools.
P.I.E. representatives match
students with host families by
finding common interests and
lifestyles trough an informal in-
home meeting. Prospective host
families are able to review stu-
dent applications and select the
"perfect match." As there are no
"typical" host families, P.I.E. can
fit a student into just about any
situation, whether it be a single
parent, a childless couple, a re-
tired couple, or a large family.
Families who host for P.I.E.
are also eligible to claim a $50


per month charitable contribu-
tion deduction on their itemized
fax returns for each month they
host a sponsored student.
For the upcoming programs,
P.I.E. has students from Spain,
Germany, Poland, Russia, Italy,
Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Aus-
tralia, New Zealand, France and
many other countries. P.I.E. is a
non-profit educational organiza-
tion that has sponsored more
than 18,000 students from 18
countries since its founding in
1975 .

Chiropractic Profession


Manipulates Vertebrae


SDr, Rudy Sechez, a local Chi-
ropractor, spoke to the Rotary
Club last Thursday, telling them
what the Chiropractic is.
Essentially, Chiropractic is a,
manipulation of the several verte-
brae in the back to cure problems
a patient may' have. Dr. Sechez
pointed out that the body's
nerves all end up in the back.
where they travel through a con-
dult to the brain. "Sometimes one.
of these nerves get pinched
through swelling of the cushioned
substance between two vertebrae
or a vertebrae' can get out of
alignment, causing pain.
The pain [or numbness] can
be In the back, itself, in a limb, in
an organ, or a particular muscle,

sometimes takes manipulation of
the back, or a nerve, to ease the.
pain or take care of the problem."
he said.
Dr. Sechez said. "I won't say
Chiropractic can take care of all
ills, nor can I say medicine or
surgery can take care of them all.
Chiropractic can offer effective
treatment for some problems just
as medicines and surgery can Tor
others." 1 ,
S He said Chiropractic is 'espe-
cially effective for -headaches,

PAIN
Ironically, it is often the
most physically fit and active
person who is In line for foot
or lower leg pain. Regular ex-
erctSe frequently results in an
Imbalance or Inequality of
muscle development. Run-
ners may find that the backs
of their legs develop much
stronger muscles than the
fronts do. The back-of-the-leg
muscles are betrig used, over
and over, to push off the
body's weight, fighting-gravity
.with every stride, while the'
front-of-the-leg. muscles, de-
signed to decelerate the body
as the foot strikes the
ground, are much less notice-
ably developed.
If you are a runner or Jog-
ger who is hurting from une-
ven muscle development,
your podiatrist can analyze
the sources of the pain and
recommend treatment. The
foot specialist can prescribe
simple exercises to stretch
the larger, stronger muscles,
and equally simple .activities
to strengthen the less well-
developed front muscles.

My Garden


[Cloud is a former resident of
Port St. Joe, educated in local
schools and is a son of Mr. and


Mrs. Charles Cloud. He is a mins-
ter and an author.]


This is what the kingdom of God is like. A man scatters
seed on the ground. Night and day, whether he sleeps or gets
up, the seed sprouts and grows, though he does not know
how. And by itself the soil produces grain first the stalk,
then the head, then the full kernel in the head. As soon as
the grain is ripe, he puts the sickle to it, because the harvest
has come.
Mark 4:26-2 NIV
Waiting. We all hate it. We like fast, instantaneous success.
You can forget that when you. garden. It forces you to slow down.
It teaches you patience. In gardening, as in life, you learn that
there are some things you just cannot rush. I'm not suggesting
that farmers never worry. Waiting and worry seem' to go hand in
hand for most of us. But if you have grown a garden before, you
soon realize the futility of worrying. Farming takes faith. You can
do your very best till, toil, fertilize, weed, fence, and water, but
ultimately you must look to God for growth. I have learned that
about gardening. It is true, whether we like it or not, about most
things in life. You see, a man who plants peas can go and look at
his field everyday. He can clinch his fist, tightening his muscles,
and screech "Peeeeeeeeas Groooooooow!" And those seeds will still
take their merry time to do their thing.

Jesus said life is like that. More specifically, he said, 'The
kingdom of God is like this."' That may not mean life to you, but it'
should. And If it is you will learn to wait and trust.

High School
By Larry A. Mathes

Open letter To All WHS Parents:
Welcome to the '93-94 school year, which begins at 8:05 a.m.,
August 12. I hope you will take the opportunity to visit your school
and support the many activities that occur during the year. Get to
know your student's teachers personally and give them your coop-
eration and support.
As you may know, the steady Increase in classroom interrup-
tions has led to some changes in the Student Code of Conduct. The
major change you need to be aware of will result in some students
being suspended sooner than in 'the past for repeatedly disturbing
classes. This is an attempt to restore teacher authority in the class-
room and to increase learning time for those students who cooper-
ate.
The purpose of our school is to educate students. To accom-
plish that, we must have the cooperation and support of students
and parents. The right to an educations does not include the right
to prevent others from receiving theirs. Parents and support groups
have indicated they support this move towards increasing class-
room learning time.
n Also, last year many parents and students felt the school's an-
nual goals were not widely known. For 1993-94 the four main goals
selected by the School Improvement Team for emphasis are:
1. To continue striving to promote the Middle School Con-
cept as much as possible.
2. To provide a range of vocational preparation opportunities
for WHS students.
3. To decrease the number of discipline referrals during the
'93-94 school year.
4. To clearly define and communicate to our community the
goals of the high school.
I Our Vision Statement reads: 'Together, we are committed to
providing the atmosphere and experience to challenge all students
to meet their potential academically, vocationally, and societallyl"
'. Please insist your students bring home a copy of the Discipline
Code and a Handbook. Read these thoroughly and discuss them
with your student. Help them to avoid problems before they occur.
Please call the school of you have questions.
An Open House for parents to pick up schedules and meet
teachers will be held on Tuesday, August 10 from 6:30 8 p.m.


HTTTD.EN'S ATHTH FORUM

.. CHILDREN

AND SCHOOL

By
Je .r Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

Let us discuss children and school as the new school year be-
gins. In order to do well in school, a child usually needs to be capa-
ble of learning, to be healthy, to be happy, and to be motivated.
In the United States, we believe the individual person should
have all possible opportunities to develop his greatest potential.
This is ultimately best for the person and best for the country.
Special education programs are designed to work with children
of all Intellectual'capacities7.'The aim is-to have each child learn and
develop to his greatest potential.-Sbmetimes there Is a problem de-
termining where-the childJ.helongs and where he can perform best.
Average and gifted children need to perform up to their capaci-
ties also. This is not possible if the teacher has to deal with behav-
ior problems and can not teach.
The child's health can best be insured with a healthy diet and
regulated hours of exercise and sleep. If a child should develop an
illness that continues over several weeks, .a home teacher can be
assigned to help him keep up with his school work. Most children
become discouraged and will not try if they are left behind by the
class.
A healthy diet .can best be accomplished by preparing regular
meals and keeping Junk foods out of the house. Vegetables and
fruits should assume a more prominent dietary role. Most people
need to decrease the bread, potatoes, other starches, and sweets.
Meats should be included 2 or 3 times a week with fish, chicken,
and turkey filling more mealtime slots. No child should go to school
without breakfast unless he is eating breakfast at school.
If a parent sends to school a child who is healthy, welltrested,
well fed, and happy, that parent has a right to expect the child to
learn what he Is expected to learn for his age level.
Many factors dictate the make-up of a "happy" child. The child
needs to feel secure at home. He needs friends his own age. He
needs to like his teacher and he needs to be self-confident and una-
fraid. Not much learning will go on if a child is fearful about his
family breaking up or afraid of an abusive parent or apprehensive
,,. about a teacher expecting more than he is able to produce.
What motivates a child to learn? Children are normally inquisi-
tive. They start out asking questions about everything. When par-
ents answer questions, this satisfies and stimulates the child.
When a parent does not know the answer, but sets about finding an
answer, this demonstrates to the child how one finds things out. To
learn should be satisfying, exciting, and rewarding.
When children are learning to read it does not matter what they
are reading as long as the Interest is there. They will become bored
with the same books at home and this is where the library comes in
handy. A planned weekly trip to the library gives the child new
books to read and also lets him know you can find out many things
in the library.
If parents will demonstrate an interest' in the child's school
work, the results will be very rewarding. Any discussions parents
can have with teachers and others at school shows the interest and
stimulates the child. It helps to explore the child's daydream. "I
want to be an astronaut" or "I want to be a scientist." When such
expressions are voiced, go ahead and outline the education required
for such jobs. '
All levels at school will have some homework. A regular time
should be set aside for the child to do this work. He should have a,
quiet area and a good work surface. The television should not be on
and radios should be off. After all the homework is done, then tele-
visions and radios are acceptable unless it is time for bed.
Regular bedtime should be established to allow enough time for
the child to be well rested. This time varies from child to child.
Once established, .the bedtime should remain the same for each
"school night." A little leeway can be given for Friday and Saturday
nights because he will not need to be up the next morning for
school, but Sunday night should be back to regular bedtime in or-
der to be ready for/school Monday morning.
When students; parents and -teachers work together, it is truly
remarkable what can be accomplished for the individual, for the
Family, and for society in general.
