FIFTY-FIFTH YEAR, NUMBER 52


PORT ST. JOE, FLORIDA 32456) THURSDAY, AUGUST 26,1993


Two Alabama men were killed Satur-
day afternoon in'a boating accident in
Howard's Creek, "In the 'S' curve just
before the creek reaches the Brothers
River," Sheriff Al Harrison told The Star.
The accident occurred at 4:30, when
two boats collided in one of the curves,
according to the Sheriff.
Dead are Sam Casey; 83, of Dothan,
Alabama and his grandson, Frank Wil-
bourne, 42, of Selma, Alabama.
Casey was killed immediately as the
two boats collided and Wilbourne was
transported to a Panama City hospital


with severe Injuries, where he died
shortly after arriving there fdr treat-
ment.
Sheriff Harrison said the two men in
the boat which hit the two Alabama
men were Randall Fuller, 38, of Destin,
who was driving the boat, and William
Clark Plumb of Panama City, a passen-
ger.
The Sheriff said the two rnen were
driving an 18-foot bass boat, powered
by a 175 horsepower engine, while the
two Alabama men were in a 15-foot alu-
minum fishing boat, powered by a 25


horsepower motor.
The two boats met in the sharp
curve of the creek, both "well under
power" according to Lt. Stan Kirkland of
the Fish and Game Commission, prime
investigator of the accident. The heavier
boat literally plowed into the side of the
smaller boat, going over the boat, strik-.
ing the two men and causing their craft
to sink immediately.
Fuller and Plumb pulled Wilbourne.
and Casey from the water and hurried
them to the nearest landing, where they
called for help. Wilbourne was taken by


Gulf County Ambulance Service to the
Bay County Hospital.,
Lt. Kirkland said investigation into
the collision is still under way and that
no charges had been filed as of Tuesday
evening.
Game Commission officers were as-
aisted in their investigation Saturday by
the Gulf County Sheriffs, office, the
Florida Marine Patrol and an officer
with the Florida Highway Patrol.
Lt. KirklanId said the investigation is
continuing.

CoUirthouse Space Has Officers

Putting In Their Bids for Room .

Sheriff Joins "Space Quest" by Asking for Storage


The Guf County School Board
is near the point of vacating their
suite of offices in the Gulf County
Courthouse and the scrambling
for possession of their office
space is beginning to heat up as
their pending vacation draws
near.
The School Board is renovat-
ing the old Vocational Education
suite at the Por St.. Joe High
School to be used for their opera-
tions headquarters after the
County notified them last year of
their need for the Courthouse


space. The Board Is scheduled to
move to their new offices around
October.
Sheriff Al Harrison has joined
the competition for the extra
space, saying, "I need some room
for storage and offices." At Tues-
day :night's meeting; Harrison
pointed out that he. had two dep-
uty officers in the same office. He
has no interrogation room,' and
other functions of the Depart-
ment are. crowded to the point
where it is hard' to function effl-
clently.-.


Deputy Sheriff Stacy Strickland holds a portion of the
marijuana plants, found growing in a plot Tuesday.


Harrison said his primary
need is for storage. "I was using
two female cells as storage space,
but with our agreement to rent
space to Franklin County to keep
their female prisoners, I no longer
have that space available."
Harrison pointed out the
Commission room was originally
designed as part of the Sheriffs
Department but had never been
used by his Department. "I need
consideration when you start di-
viding up the space," he said.
Commissioner Warren Yeager
assured Sheriff Harrison he
would be given the same consid-
eration as other officials when the
additional Courthouse space was
meted out.
OBJECT TO LOCATION
Mr. and Mrs. Al Smith and
Grady O'Brian, both residents of
Woodward Arenue, appeared be-
fore the Commissionr to ask for
their help in securing a different
location for the proposed Senior
Citizens' Center building. The
building has been slated for a lo-
cation between 6th and 7th


Streets just east of Woodw
enue.
Mrs. Smith said the .1

DOT Is Asked



for Help with



Intersection

Since before the new highrise bridge was opened on Highway
98, at Highland View, the Gulf County Commission has been
concerned with safe conditions at the intersection with C-382, at
the south end of the bridge, where the road enters the St. Joe
Forest Products paper mill wood yard. The road is heavily used
by large pulp wood trucks, handles traffic in and ouf of Arizona
Chemical Company, the City's Wastewater Treatment Plant, Pre-
mier Services and the City's solid waste collection point.
All this traffic crosses Highway 98 and its considerable
through traffic at the beginning of the south slope to the new
bridge. Workers from Arizona and other plants on the road, say
the traffic Jam is especially heavy around the noon hour and ear-
ly in the mornings and late in the afternoon, with workers going
to and from work. 'The intersection is just an accident waiting to
happen," said County Commission Chairman Nathan Peters.
THE COMMISSION IS now looking at the-.expense involved
in putting a "right" and "left" turn lanes in C-382 at the intersec-
tion, to reduce the heavy influx of vehicles waiting to turn and
cross Highway 98 at the intersection. The Board has gone to the
Florida DOT for suggestions on how to handle the construction
and solicit advice as to what to do. Highway 98 already has
-. lanes 'devated.-tea'4ght" and"'left1' tttn'trkffic af the p'ffit oY6o--n -
'o alle- cern.
Chairman Peters is especially concerned with the safety of
the intersection and started sounding the alarm for pending
l^j'r danger even before the new bridge was opened. 'The, danger was
there before, but with heavily loaded trucks coming off that
highrise bridge the danger has been magnified. I hate to see the
day when one of those big trucks has its brakes fail," he said.
APPARENTLY COMMITTED to construction of the two extra .
lanes on C-382, the Commission approved a letter Chairman Pe-
ters had written to the DOT, Tuesday night. The letter asked the
state highway agency to fund at least half the estimated $20,000
the two lanes will cost. C-382 is a County road. Highway 98 is a
state highway.
m s: In the past, the Commission had expressed its fears to the
Department of Transportation, only to be assured the intersec-
'ard Av- tion is perfectly safe for the traffic count at the intersection. The
Commission is skeptical of their answer concerning safety, how-
location ever.
es little Preble-Rish Engineers has estimated the cost to be $20,000
would for permitting, design and construction of the two turn lanes.

Population of


County Reflects


Slight Growth

Up by Nearly 4%. Since Federal
Census Was Taken In 1990
The University of Florida estimates the population of
Gulf County has grown steadily since the Federal Census.
of 1990, at nearly a four percent clip according to figures.
released this week. University of Florida keeps demo-
graphics of each county as current as possible as a basis
for proposed state revenue sharing.
The estimate,. based on such items as .migration and
number of deaths, has provided a population count .of
12,393. The gross count Includes Inmates of prisons in,
Gulf.County on April 1. Population of the County- less.
the prison inmates, is an estimated 11,816. The nose
count is more, now, since Gulf Correction Institution has.
grown almost to capacity since the first of the year..
Gulf County's population is centered mostly in the un-
incorporated areas of the. County, despite a lack of agri-
cultural activity throughout the County. Most of the un-
incorporated population is in the Beaches areas and
around the Dead Lakes in north Gulf County, totaling
some 5,939. Of course, since both state prison Institu-
tions are in unincorporated portions of the County, their.
number shows constant In the counts for unincorporated
areas and the County as a whole.
Incorporated areas of the County have a total popula-
tion of 5,877, but is not broken down between the two in-
corporated cities of Wewahitchka and Port St. Joe. Port
St. Joe has been estimated at 4,800 people, but no offi-
cial figures are available on which to base the estimate.
They are taken from water meters.

It May be A Good for the Nation



BE l *


CONGRESSMAN PETE PETERSON has finally heard the
voice of his constituency, but it was too late. He had already
filed his vote in favor of the President's tax package in spite of
the fact that most of the people In his district were not in favor
of it.
The outcry over his actions, concerning the tax package has
sent him scurrying back to the district to see if he can cover his
tracks and justify his actions, which were, directly opposed to the
expressed wishes -of the people of his district. Of course the Con-
gressman didn't have time to make but two appearances in the
'district, because he had to take a trip to Russia to see about
some alleged prisoners of war. The last time we had something
important to take up with the Congressman, he had to postpone
his visit so he could go to Vietnam.
ONE WAY'HIS predecessor, Bob Sikes, stayed in office for so
long was that he voted as his constituents wished. He served the
needs of the people in his district. He was available, at home or
in Washington, whenever the people needed his services. Con-
gressman Sikes may not have been a good. Congressman, or he
might have been the best one in Washington; we aren't qualified
jp say which. We are qualified to say he took care of the inter-
ests of the people from his district.
Congressman Peterson had better learn that lesson if he
hopes to repeat Congressman Bob Sikes' service record in Wash-
ington.
MR. PETERSON MAY have been dead right in the casting of'
his vote as he did. The people of the Second District of Florida
didn't happen to agree with him. And, it's not because there are
so many of them earning $200,000 a year who would be affected
by the new tax. Most taxpayers in this district don't believe Con-
gress was serious about placing the considerable pile of new
money generated by the new tax bill where it was supposed to
go-on reducing the deficit. Consequently, that regular Ameri-
can, who wears overalls, Isn't much interested in whether he will
have to pay or not. He's just bright enough to realize nobody
gets a hit from taxes without it affecting everybody.
A few years ago, about the most popular Senator Florida ever
had voted to give away the Panama Canal "for the good of the
Nation". Most of the 'voters didn't want him to and expressed
themselves along these lines. The Senator went ahead and voted
to give the Canal away, anyhow. He was convinced It was for the
"good of the country." That Senator is no longer with us. Enough
said?


Search Is Over

AT LAST THE 14th Judicial Circuit has a Medical Examin-
er to that important and necessary work for our people. Unless
you have .witnessed some of the arrangements having to be
made by the Circuit to perform this very needed and mandatory
task, you just don't realize the inconvenience not having a M.E.'
has caused our County or the people who had need of his servic-
es.
The need for the services of an M.E. doesn't exactly come at
a coqgjNIjent season for those who have need of hiip. Nor does
thatreed come at a point in a person's life when he really, has
the presence of mind to make other'arrangements if one isn't
readily available.
One rarely thinks of the expense Involved if he is personally
affected by the need for a M.E.'s services, but the County Com-
mission, looking at the charges in a meeting, on an invoice,
knows very well how expensive using a make-shift arrangement
for these very special services can be. A M.E.'s work is a very ex-
acting responsibility; He has a considerable responsibility on his
shoulders and one has to pay in keeping with the leyel of re-
sponsibility.
7 A M.E. IS A NECESSARY Individual. He must make an opin-
ion-after an autopsy-of how a person died, when the death is
unattended or unexpected: The law requiress this be done, in or-
der to rule out foul play, communicable diseases and other caus-
es of mysterious death. /
This happens more than the average person realizes; even in
a small county like Gulf County. Gulf County uses the services
,of a M.E. at least once or twice a month; sometimes more. It is
imperative that we have one available.
We6 want to thank our; local representatives, who worked on
the Judicial Circuit committee which located and hired the new
'Medical Examiner. From what we have read, he is .an outstand-
ing individual. He will be adequately paid, but not enough to re-
quire great sums of money from anyof the counties in the Cir-
cuit. You had patience and did your job well.

this morning without protest-

Seems a -little unfair to the
dog. Why couldn't the doldrums
of late August be called cat days
or Topeka days or maybe even si-
tar days?
-We fuss at our dogs for what
we assume is their propensity to
howl a little more during this par-


ticular time of year. Maybe the
flies are biting on them, too. Per-
haps the heat bothers them a lit-
tle. Or, could be a rich uncle died
and left everything to a sleek but
stuck up greyhound in Topeka.
I have often sat and wished I
could ask the dog.
If we could understand the
howling they're probably yelling,
"Hey, you in the blue shirt, you
forgot to feed us, you idiotl And,
there's been no water since day
before yesterday!
Don't you know dogs, have
some serious doubts about us?
We come home in a happy mood
and we pet and feed and rub and
play....The very next day, we
come in and kick the dog up
against- the dishwasher. It's
amazing, how quickly a dog will
sense your mood by the way you
turn the doorknob.
You figure- dogs ever get in a
bad mood? Things don't go right
in the pen. They didn't sleep well.
Or, about the time they're dozing
off. :here comes the police siren.
While your grumbling about the
noise the cocker spaniel reminds
you that she could have married
the Navy doctor's dog....
I've seen a dog or two in a
foul mood. I remember years ago
my Dad "worming" ole Duke and
Belle and Highridge. Those dogs
would go to yapping and snarling,
they wouldn't let you come near
'em. Highridge wouldn't even
hunt with you for several days.
Duke would hole up under the
corn crib. Listen, you let my Dad
grab you by the nose, tilt your
head back, pry your jaws apart,
cram a pill 'bout the size of a
hand grenade down your throat,
rub your Adam's apple around 'til
he was sure you swallowed, then
step back and proclaim, '"Well, ole
Duke, you're about to smile from
the inside out," you might hole up
under the corn crib, too. At the
very least, you'd be a little put
out with the whole human race....
F I'll tell you something else
that would anger up our dogs.
Aunt Bertha would come for a,
visiti'and there wouldn't be no ta-
ble scraps. They'd have to go
back to F-R-MI or Trailblazer or
hunt themselves up a muskrat.
Aunt Bertha could stir up the bile
in them dogs by just stepping out
of that Buick. :
Yes, sir, I figure dogs have
bad days, too. Maybe we ought to
be a little more understanding.
Give that dog a little more room!
*-Let's don't blame everything that
goes wrong in this county "oh
Fido. I don't know one dog that
ever started a riot, voted for the
wrong president, sold cocaine on
the school grounds, or murdered
someone either inside of, or out
in front of, an abortion clinic.

jaundiced eye.

,easy chairs are becoming more -
and more attractive.
In spite of the obvious signs,
I'm not willing to give up and give
in to advancing age; just :as any realize the good things n

toddles along on a cane, he's a
"young fella".
An old codger, lying on his'
death bed .is a "young fella".
When a man gets to be a sage of,
age at the milestone near 100,
he's referred to as a "young fella".
A real "young fella" is in reali-
ty, a "whipper-snapper". A man
on his last legs is referred to as a
'"young fella" merely as a kind
gesture.
Why is that? To make him
'feel better? It doesn't really you
know. By the time a man is re-
ferred to as a "young fella" the
stairs are all beginning to get


steeper and taller. A mile walked
is more like two miles. Jogging is
a fast walk to the bathroom.
Working out in the sun is an ex-
ercise in futility. A fast meal is a
meal eaten in less than 30 min-
utes and a full dinner is more like
a child's portion.
GETTING OLDER isn't so
bad. Having it become evident is
a shock. It comes across better,
when someone looks at you unbe-
lievingly and says, "Naaah, you're
not that old!"
A remark like that calls for a
little chest swelling, brisk step-

start growing.
When you come to that point
in life where you sit back and give
advice mostly; when every other

sentence starts with, "Now, a few

way," or "When.I was just starting

when I was young ... or Walked .
S. two miles to school. .. in the.
snow .uphill .. both ways. I
had to slop the hogs .'. milk the
cow ... feed the chickens ... cut,

IT APPEARS AS IF I am ob-
sessed with getting old. That's not
necessarily so. I'm proud. to be
getting old. First of all, I'm glad I
made it. Second, I'm relishing in
the difference given elderly peo-
ple when it comes to seeking in-
formation about what happened
when, how to do certain tasks, or
what happens when you do this'
or that?
Who said the kids don't pay
attention to you when you are
getting old? They don't gush over
you. They Just come to you for
Important things. One thing you
notice when you are getting on up
in age is, you're more aware of


your surroundings, listen better
[if you can still hear] and what
you see and hear has more mean-
ing.
Just the other day, it was
proven to me that grandparents:
aren't useless. No, they're not!
Most every grandfather is indis-

He's no "young fella" to them.
Nothing is impossible for a grand-
father. Just ask any grandchild.
It was brought home to me as
to how important grandparents
are when my young grandson
came up and said, "Papaw will
you buy me one of those go-carts

a sort of pleading in his voice and
eyes which only the perceptive-

It's Hard to Stop Smoking
It was just a few days ago that my sister and I were talking
about how hard it is to stop smoking. She is a smoker and I'm the
worst kind; I'm a reformed smoker. In other words, I stopped smok-
ing about 15 years ago.
But I'm not ,insensitive to smokers and their plight. There are
no NO SMOKING, PLEASE signs in my house or office and I never
tell a person they smell like a cigarette even if I did smell them be-
fore I saw them. It's my opinion that a person has the right to
smoke and kill themselves if they want to. And cigarettes will kill,
because I smoked them for about twenty years and they almost did
me in. That's: why I quit, with a lot of help from God and my family:
I, of course, am no doctor and I won't mention any brands, but
I'm convinced thatcigarettes killed my father, two of my sisters, one
of my brother-in-laws, one of my best friends and several other
close friends and family members. I know the symptoms because I
had many of the same ones when I smoked. **.. -
But that's not the point of this article. My sister was telling me
how much she enjoyed smoking and she didn't believe she could.
quit, even if she wanted to. I, of course, know better. No one en-
Joyed smoking more than I. I would have smoked them in my sleep
if I had had someone to light them and flick the ashes for me. And I
really didn't know how badly cigarettes made me feel until I had
been off them. for about six months. But I had to stop, and If I did
it, anyone can. I'm a weak person when it comes to vices.
Quitting cigarettes wasn't easy. As a matter of fact, it was prob-
ably the most difficult habit I've ever kicked; Will Rogers once said
quitting cigarettes was easy-that he had quit a hundred times or
more. It is easy to quit; it's the staying quit that Is hard.
Quitting cigarettes is harder than:
W* Washing dried grits off a bowl that has set all day;.
Wishing the girl you love and your best friend good luck in
their marriage;
*P Carrying on a conversation with your boss (face to face)
when he has a bad case of cigarette halitosis;
1' Admitting you were wrong in an argument you had with
your mother-in-law (well, it's almost that hard);
Telling your fat and ugly girlfriend you love her and want to
S marry her-Just because her daddy's rich and her mother's
good looking;
Picking cotton or roofing a house all day during the hot sum-
mer in Florida;
Pulling your own Jaw tooth or pulling a rusty nail out of your
foot:
As you can see, it's very difficult to stop smoking. And you will
never know unless you've been hooked on cigarettes. So. If you
don't smoke, don't start: and if you've Just started, quit while you
still can. It's a nasty habit

final years In happiness, operat-

ing John so unexpectedly. it was
the overwhelming compassion
and offerings from these friends
and this community that kept us
going..,
Friends, business associates,
organizations, churches, law en-
forcement agencies, physicians.,
hospital and ambulance person-
nel, and John's staff, who so gen-

ing of flowers, cards, food, visits,
memorials, phone calls, and
prayers,to the many who actual-
ly facilitated the funeral with your
various ,professional services, you
all gave us the courage and
strength that only a generous,
caring community would give.

past week reinforced in; us the
knowledge that John made the
right decision thirteen years ago
to locate us here.

YOUR

FEET.

WHY 'ATHLETE'S

FOOT'"?
Warm' dark. and humid is
the kind of environment that
promotes the growth of fungi.
These conditions exist in our
shoes: that's why our feet are
vulnerable to fungus infec-
tions such as tinea pedis.
This is commonly called ath-
lete's foot because It often Is
contracted by walking bare-
foot on warm, dam surfaces
around pools, gum showers,
and locke rooms. But you
don't have to be an athlete to
get athlete's foot.
Symptoms may Include
drying, scaling skin or inflam-
mation, blisters, and intense
Itching, especially between
toes. (Similar symptoms amy
be produced by other fungus
infections and by disorders
such ,as eczema, psoriasis,
'and reactions to dyes and
other chemicals in footwear.)
The discomfort can spread
from the feet If a person
scratches, an 'Infected. area
and then touches another
part of the body.
If you are suffering from
such symptoms, consult the
podiatrist for diagnosis and
'treatment that brings relief.

record number of dually enrolled
students with GCCC this, year.
Some of the courses these stu-
dents are enrolled in are Account-
ing, Micro Computers, Typing,
English Composition, Pre-
Calculus,' Psychology, Western
civilization, and American Nation-
al Government.
'' Many of these dually-enrolled
students are not only balancing
high school and college work, but
fall sports and after school activi-
ties. Cross country, cheerleading,
volleyball, band, ROTC. and, of
course, football are all underway.
The Shark football team will
travel to Niceville for their pre-
season gpne against the Eagles
Friday night. The game will begin
at 8:30 ET at Niceville Stadium.
where the Sharks will play four
full quarters. There will be two
new faces on the sidelines-
Athletic Director/Head Coach
Fred Priest and Assistant Coach
Curtis Ray.
The sideline is not the only
place you'll see new teachers and
faculty at PSJHS. We're glad to
have Band Director Mitchell Bou-
ington, Guidance Counselor Mari-
lyn Witten, and Guidance Secre-
tary Wanda Nixon as a part of the
Port St. Joe High School family..
PSJHS would also like to congrat-
ulate a teacher who is not a new
face, but has a new name, Mrs.
Angela Feitel, formerly known as
Miss Wright.
New as well as experienced
teachers are always looking for
in.iovattve ways to motivate stu-
dents. Mrs. Patterson's Spanish
classes were treated to special
guest speaker Scott Howell on
Monday. August 23. Howell relat-
ed just how important learning
the Spanish language could be in
life through his experience work-
ing in Panama City, Panama.
If any student is having trou-
ble with their Spanish or any oth-
er academic subject. the National
Honor Society is offering free tu-
toring immediately after school.
The tutoring will be offered every
Thursday in rm. #212.
If the remainder of the school
year goes as smoothly as the first
week, then it should be an out-
standing year at Port St. Joe High
School.

MOUTHWASH WON'T

REMOVE FILM


TV ads will tell you that mouth-
wash will remove the "morning film"'
on your teeth. But you won't find a
dentist who will agree with that!
They opt' for good flossing and a
well-placed toothbrush for clean
teeth and healthy gums.
Plaque is a colorless film that
adheres to the teeth, especially
along the gum line and in tooth cre-
vices. This coating is only ONE of
the sources of bad breath. More im-
portantly, it contains bacteria that
combine with sugar to form acids
which 'create decay and irritate
gums.
Brushing correctly is important,
but flossing is also essential to be
sure you get at all those places


where plaque can hide. Plaque is
{invisible but it CAN be made bright-
ly visible. It's not done by magiq. It's
'done by disclosing tablets.They're


made out of red food coloring which
adheres to the plaque and colors
,what you missed bright red. Once
,you've discovered your problem
areas, brush and floss until the red
'is gone. Remember, elbow grease,
'flossing and brushing remove "film",
,not mouthwash.

Gammill Heading Up Coastal Clean Up


Since 1988, the Center for
Marine Conservation (CMC) has
coordinated a statewide event
each September. More than just a
cleanup, the Florida Coastal
Cleanup is fun and educational
for young and old alike!
Participants are encouraged
to catalogue the marine debris
they find, helping CMC to identify
where muclh of the debris came
from, such as shipping indus-
tries, cruise lines, fishers, boat-
ers, beach goers, or land-based
sources.
This cleanup is part of a larg-


er international effort coordinated
by CMC, which currently involves
36 U.S. states and territories, and
49 countries.
According to Guy Gammill,
Gulf County Volunteer Coordina-
tor for the local annual clean-up
effort, "The Friends of St. Joseph
Bay have been the primary local
sponsor for the last five years,
and 'have provided funds for
transportation of students in-
volved. This year, we are looking
for more local volunteers and
sponsors, as we have been
praised by the Center for Marine
Conservation for having one of


the biggest increases percentage-
wise in total number of people in-
volved and tons of debris collect-
ed. Last year, we collected ap-
proximately six tons of, debris
with 303 volunteers; nearly half
the volunteers were students
from Gulf County Schools, and it
is an opportunity for them to
learn more about the problem
with litter-not Just on our beach-
es and shores, but so they can
take part in "Keeping America
Beautiful" for future generations."
Your help is needed! Marine
debris kills thousands of marine


animals annually, is unsightly on
our coast, and costly to coastal
communities in cleanup costs
and lost tourist dollars.
It takes only 3 hours, all nec-
essary materials are provided by
CMC, and volunteers can partici-
pate at any one of over 500 coast-
al and underwater sites around
the state. It's a great activity for
schools, businesses, civic, and
environmental organizations. For
more information contact CMC at
1-800-CMC-FLORIda (262-3567)
or for Gulf County call (904) 227-
1289 and ask for Guy Gammill.

COMPLEX PROBLEM:
COMPLEX SOLUTIONS

By
'. Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

The following is a reprint of an editorial by Dr. Elizabeth McAn-
arney in the April 1991 American Journal Diseases of Children. It is
reprinted with the permission of Dr. McAnarney and the Journal.
The challenge of adolescent pregnancy has evoked responses
from many sectors: society at large, religious groups, educators,
health care professionals, parents, and adolescents themselves. We
have every reason to engage in this dialogue, for adolescent preg-
nancy is one of our greatest challenges. As pediatricians, we are
concerned about the health of adolescents and their children.
Adolescent pregnancy is a complex socio-cultural and biologic
condition. Attitudes about sexuality, sexual activity, pregnancy,
; contraception, and abortion are all rooted In the cultures and sub-
cultures of our pluralistic society. The biologic capacity to repro-
duce is one of the hallmarks of adolescence and, for many young
people, provides opportunities to fulfill lives that previously have
had few accomplishments. To be close to another person (if only
transiently), to attempt to prove one's femininity or masculinity by
becoming pregnant or impregnating another, and/or to become a
* parent with new status are powerful motivators for some young
people.
There may be few reasons for some young people to plan ahead,
either by delaying sexual activity or, If sexually active, delaying
pregnancy by using effective contraception. Adolescents, as they
have in the past, will continue to become pregnant. Assuming,
therefore, that adolescent pregnancy Is an ongoing problem we might
ask a question similar to that asked by former New York City mayor
Edward Koch: How are they (adolescents and their children) doing?
The answer to that question might be, "not too bad, but not too
good."
The "not too bad" part reflects those successful prenatal Inter-
disciplinary adolescent maternity projects that have resulted in im-
proved short-term (i.e., obstetric, neo-natal, and psychosocial) out-
comes as shown in several studies. There have also been long-term,
promising outcome data for the majority of mothers who were cared
for in an adolescent maternity project in the late 1960's and were
followed up 17 years later. The majority of these mothers had fin-
ished their educations, were not receiving public assistance, and
were working at the time of follow-up.
The "not-too-good" part comes from data indicating distressing
long-term outcomes for the children of these adolescent mothers,
who themselves did so well. These children as adolescents, had dis-
tressingly poor outcomes, eg, school failure, early sexual activity.
and adolescent pregnancy. In addition, the United States still has
the highest adolescent pregnancy, birth, and abortion rates com-
pared with those of other industrialized countries (the rate is ex-
pressed as the number of pregnancies per 1000 women in that age
group). The following data compare the United States and the Neth-
erlands: pregnancy rate, 109.9 vs 15.0. respectively; birth rate. 51.7
vs 7.7, respectively. and abortion.rate 43.5 vs 5.3, respectively.
Overall, these data, which are far from complete. Indicate the
complex nature of adolescent pregnancy and outcome. The solu-
tions to adolescent pregnancy are complex; we should not promise
simple panaceas for this challenging sociocultural-blologic phenom-
enon. Merely dedicating more financial resources to "solving" ado-
lescent pregnancy Is not the only strategy. If we articulate clear,
nonjudgmental basic principles and follow them, adolescents and
society will be well served. These basic principles might include the
following:
1. It is better to delay sexual activity during early and middle
adolescence and to avoid pregnancy. This principle could'.be sup.- ,
ported by modeling dignity and respect between the sexes., demo "
strating responsible sexual behavior, an'd "piovidlig decreased'fie- "
dia attention to Irresponsible sexual activity.
2. If young people become sexually active, they need to consider
the consequences, not only to themselves, but also to their poten-
tial offspring and to society. Some may believe that most adoles-
cents do not have the capacity to consider consequences meaning-
fully: some obviously will not be able to. Nevertheless, we must
reinforce this basic principle by educating our young people in their
families, schools, and health care settings about responsible sexu-
ality. Parenthetically, we need better contraceptive methods that are
independent of adolescents' behavior.
3. If a young person becomes pregnant and decides to keep her
infant, she must enter prenatal care early and continue with it to
optimize her outcome as well as her infant's. Other goals Include re-
turning to school to finish her education and securing the best
child care possible to make sure the children have the best chance
of achieving healthy futures.
If we follow these principles and perhaps others, we shall have
served society and its young people honestly and consistently.

Extension Notes

Roy Lee Carter
Gulf County Extension Service



All Plants Need An


Adequate Fertilizer


We all know that plants need
fertilizer. It's virtually .impossible
to maintain your landscape and
house plants, or grow a vegetable,
garden, without it. But, do you
really understand how fertilizer
works, how plants use the Vari-
ous elements, and the basic
symptoms of specific nutritional
deficiencies?
Obviously, we add fertilizer to
increase soil fertility. That Is. we
supply fertilizer to be sure plants
have the essential nutrients they
need for proper growth. Since
plants absorb these elements
from the soil, you may wonder
how much fertilizer they contain.
Surprising as it may seem, 95%
of a typical plant's mass is made
up of three elements that come
from plain old air and water-
carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen.
All the nutrients in the soil, in-
cluding the fertilizer we apply,
only make up the remaining five
percent.
You probably already know
that plants need large amounts of
major elements and small
amounts of minor elements. In
this article, I will talk about how"
plants use the major elements ni-
trogen, phosphorus, and potas-
sium.
Nitrogen is probably the most
Important element In the whole
fertilizer complex. It's the basis
for all plant growth, because it al-
lows plants to grow compounds
called .amino acids. Amino acids
are the building blocks for pro-
tein. Protein is required by all liv-
ing things from tiny. one-celled
organisms to complex forms of
life. Every living cell, whether
plant or animal, contains pro-
teins.
And, as I said, nitrogen ena-


" bles plants to produce this vital
* material. If a plant doesn't get
. enough nitrogen. it will take the
protein away from Its older leaves
and move It into new leaves. In a
nitrogen-deflcient plant, the old
leaves turn yellow, and the new
growth is smaller than normal.
Plants also need nitrogen to
produce chlorophyll, nucleic ac-
ids, and enzymes. They are vitally
.important, because they allow
plants to convert sunlight into
" food-a process known as photo-,
synthesis.
The second major plant nutri-
enit s phosphorus. Phosphorus is
used to store and transfer energy
within the plant, and to form nu-
plant's genetic code. It is especial-
ly important when plants are just
starting to grow. because it stim-
ulates the development of roots
and the first leaves. Like nitro-
gen. phosphorus can move within
the plant tissues. Deficiency
symptoms first show up in the
older leaves. They appear dull or
dark green, and eventually you
can see red, yellow, or blue pig-
ments through the leaves, along
the main veins.
The third major element is
potassium. Plants need potas-
sium to move sugars and starch-
es throughout their leaves and
other tissues. It's essential for the
opening and closing of the plant's
stomata-the tiny holes in leaf
surfaces which- allow plants to
absorb carbon dioxide arid re-
lease oxygen. As In the case of nl-
trogen and phosphorus deficien-
cles, lack of potassium firpt
shows up on older leaves. The
edges turn brown, and leaf spots
may appear.

great fan of the Azalea. I love flowers, but prefer things that,
bloom, then yield something edible. But I will admit flowers are
pretty. But most of them are a lot of trouble.
You water, fertilize, prune and weed. Keeping flowers can be-
'come quite a chore. But not azaleas. They are a low mainte-
nance shrub. By and large, all you have to do is plant them.
They stay green mostly and bloom brilliantly. They are just
there. We take for granted their presence, as well as their beau-
ty. But wherever you plant them around here-in sun or shade,
in sand or soil-azaleas persevere. They are disease resistant
and drought tolerant. They bloom where they are planted.
As a pastor, I have come to appreciate and admire "azalea"
Christians, people who just stay green, keep growing and often
bloom, no matter where they are, what the weather is like, or
who is noticing. Like azaleas, these people are often taken for
granted. The bright, bold colors of other flowers take center
stage. ... .
But have you ever noticed that some people, like some flow-
ers, only bloom brilliantly If they get the right attention', the
proper light, and tedious tending? And their flowers fade fast. I
like the "azalea" folks. People who blossom boldly in sunshine
and shade, in the good that lights theii day, and in the dark that
* sometimes, dims their way. "Azalea" people are overlooked and,
underappreciated. But when they flower so faithfully and regu-
larly, we begin to see their beauty. '
See you in the garden!

Back to School:


Return to Hectic Schedules -

Rushed Mealtimes


It's back-to-school time and after
three months of lazy summer fun -
"real life" resumes. Fast-paced school
days bring football practice, music
recitals, help with homework...
and less time for leisurely dinners.
Although the grill and picnic table
may be stored away, takeout di nners
and pizza delivery are not the only
alternatives for a quick meal during
the back-to-school time crunch.
Michele Urvater, author o6f the
award-winning The Monday To
Friday Cookbook, professional chef
and a busy parent, says back-to-
school signals the return to the
organized weeknight dinner in her
house and in many others across the
country.
"When September comes, it's back
to reality for us," says Urvater.
"Tight schedules, hectic days and
busy evenings mean we have to
remember all those tricks that help
us get dinner on the table in a pinch."
Urvater's refresher course of time-
saving tips includes:
Food Basics 101. "When I need
to feed my family fast, it's helpful
to have staples on hand including
canned tomatoes, chicken broth, rice,
pasta, wide varieties of frozen vege-
tables and fruits, spices and sauces
that add flavor and excitement," says
Urvater. "You'll find yopreally save
time and .won't sacrifice great taste
and nutrition forthe convenience."'
Simplify the Lesson Plan.,
Urvater suggests using products that
streamline the cooking process by
taking care of the time-consuming
steps of chopping, dicing and prep-
aration of complicated sauces. "'One
of my favorites is Birds Eye Easy
Recipe"' for Chicken or Beef. All I.
do is brown fresh', chicken or beef,
addthe combination Birds Eye vege-
tables and sauce, simmer ,and a
delicious home-cooked meal is ready
in 15 minutes!"
Extracurricular Kitchen
Activities. "Enlist the kids to pitch
in. Put them in charge of keeping.
track of shopping lists, setting the
table and cleaning the dishes. And,
while they're learning the ABC's
at school, teach them the basics of
cooking by encouraging them to help
make a weeknight dinner."

"Although our schedules may be
busy, we do not have to sacrifice a

High School
Byl arry A.. Mathes

The senior year has started--and the expense that goes with it!
Senior portraits were taken this past week, and that's Just the be-
ginning. Seniors, and senior parents, keep those checkbooks
handyl
Students were t-eated to a brief interlude Friday when Ken
Deppe, Monster Truck driver and a spokesperson for the National
"Race Against Drugs" campaign, spoke to our students about
drugs, giving them many reasons why drugs should not be a part of
their lives. Of course, he also talked about monster truck racing
and why everyone ought to see the races!
PARENTS-please note--when picking up students or dropping
them off either before or after school, please use the back area. This
prevents congestion with the buses. Also, lunches being delivered
must be delivered to the front-only to individuals. Businesses may
not deliver on campus.
Speaking of parking areas, ours will double in the front when
the current construction is completed. It will increase parking in
front and increase student recreation area In the back.
Another note about delivered lunches-they must be delivered
early enough for the student to finish eating during the lunch peri-
od. Students will not be allowed'to skip or miss class to finish a
luncH that was delivered late. Senior high lunch starts at 10:57
a.m.; JMnior high lunch starts at 11:58 a.m.
Reminder-school starts at 8:05 a.m. It's hard to believe the
number of students we have showing up as early as 7:00 a.m. If
they ride buses, It's understandable. But If they don't, then try to
time their arrival to five or ten minutes before the first bell! The
buses run early because the Elementary school serves breakfast-
and since there's only one bus run, the.Jr.-Sr. high schoolers are
delivered 25 to 30 minutes before our first bell.
I'm sure you've noticed pre-season NFL games-already showing
up. Not to be outdone, high schools may now play a full length
game prior to the season opening September 3rd date. On.Thursday
night, August 26, the '93-'94 GATORS travel to Freeport to get the
feel of things (7:30 CT1. Prediction-It will be hot and humid! Bring
Sa towel, and maybe an umbrella. It will be a chance- for the Gators
to show some improvement over last year. -Parents and support-
ers-Join the GATOR BACKERS. We need your support and your
