Port St. Joe Gets A Second Shot At Main Street Designation

National, State Officials Visiting Here Today to Cosider Development of Historic Aspect of City
NatonlStte OficialsViitngHere Today to, Consider Develop'm~ent of His'tor icApect of City :" :: :


Port St. Joe might get a modified version of
the benefits from Main Street designation after
all, it was learned since Thursday of last week.
Tamara Laine, executive secretary of the Cham-
ber of Commerce reports she received a tele-
phone call from Bob Trescott, manager of Flori-
da's 'Main Street program, saying the
committee has had second thoughts about Port
St. Joe. ,
Trescott and the director of the national
Main Street pribgram will be in Port St. Joe to-
day to look around at the town and its unique-
ness. The two executives will meet with the,
Chamber of Commerce directors and City Com-


missioners today from 12:00 noon to 1:00 p.m.
HISTORIC PORTION IMPORTANT
The Main Street Florida directors have de-
cided the historic portion of Port St. Joe's pres-:
entation has definite need of emphasis, even
though the City doesn't have enough popula-
tion to qualify for a full-blown designation as a
"Main Street" city. 'We want to help you arid
we're going to look for a way to help you em-
phasize your historical importance to Florida,"
Trescott said.
Port St. Joe will still get -all the advice, as-
sistance in development and direction from the
Main Street organization. The only part of the


program the City will not receive, if approved by
the two visiting executives, is the $10,000
grant of funds which is automatically awarded
tb each city designated for the program.
WILL GET MOST BENEFITS
'We didn't especially need the $10,000."
Laine said. '"We just need the assistance we
would have received and the position it would
have put us in to receive development grants.
The cash grant would have all been spent on
requirements which the City would have to ad-
here to for the program,"'
A committee is in the process of revitaliza-
Lion of downtown Port St. Joe, along with the


assistance of the University of Florida Depart-
ment of Architecture director, Dr. Pete Prugh.
The project has been at a standstill for the past
three months, while Prugh was attending to a
project in Spain. However, the director is back
on the scene once again and predicts comple-
tion of plans in the late fall or shortly after the
new year.
Port St. Joe is the location of Florida's adop-
tion of its first Constitution. A museum in Con-
stitution Park commemorates that event. If to-
day's visit turns out favorably, the City will now
receive help and advice on building its future
on that event.


Hike In Garbage...




collection Rat'es

Ahticiptted to Beconme Effective Oct.


The City Commission heard
the reading of two important ordi-
'nances Tuesday night with a sec-
ond reading scheduled at their
next meeting, September 21, be-
fore they become law.
One of the ordinances would
alter the Garbage Ordinance in
two ways. First it would quit giv-
ing away free garbage bags for
use in the recycling containers
the City has furnished.
Next,-and probably the most
important, rates for garbage col-
lection would be increased, effec-
tive October 1.,
The new rates, to more prop-
erly reflect the expense of collect-
ing and, disposal of solid waste
throughout the City, would in-
crease domestic collection to
$14.00 a month for twice a. week
collection. The rate has been
$10.00 for the past year, to see
how 'the City would fare under
the lesser amount.'
A special rate rate of $8.00
will be charged to citizens on
fixed incomes, a hike of $2.00


over the present rate.,
Commercial users' rates are,
scaled according to use. The new
rates would Increase each com-
mercial user by 25%. with the
minimum rate being $25.00. Su--
per markets, now paying the
highest rate, would be raised to
$250 a month, from the present,
$200. .
The second ordinance read
for the first time, would change
the zoning requirements in Port
St. Joe south of 10th Street. The
'entire area which falls in this
zone would be dedicated to single
family dwelling homes. No busi-
ness operations would be al-
lowed.
Present zone restrictions are
such that a portion of the area al-
lows certain types of business;
soine allows multi-family dwell-
ings, and some allows only single
family dwellings. With the pas-
sage of the ordinance. the entire
portion of the City south of 1 Oth
Street would have the same des-
ignation-single family dwellings.


WILL GET CAN DENSIFIER
The City was also notified
Tuesday night, by three members
of the County Commission, that
Board would make funds availa-
ble from their recycling grant to
purchase a can densifler and a
glass crusher for their recycling
program. Chairman Nathan Pe-
ters, Warren Yeager and Michael
Hammond verified their Board
had approved the expenditure.
MOVING SENIOR CITIZENS'
CENTER BUILDING
For some time the location of
the proposed Senior Citizens
building has been under discus-
sion. The proposed location of the
building in Forrest Park has been
questioned because of the pres-
ence of less than ideal building
conditions.
Commissioner Tharpe said he
had met with County Commis-
sion Chairman Nathan Peters
and Senior Citizens director, Jer-
ry Stokoe, and discussed the pos-

Courthouse Room Re-Alloted

Former School Board Suite Starts a "Space Race" by Officials


. Since the Board of County
Commissioners evicted the
School Board from the Court-
house, there has been a virtual
scramble between some of the
constitutional officers for some of
that space being vacated.
Some of the officers have
made specific requests for more
space, with Supervisor of Elec-
tions Cora Sue Robinson asking
for a configuration which would
give her staff a private restroom.
"At present,, we have to go out of
the office and use the public rest-
room. We're the only office in the
Courthouse which has to do
that," Robinson told the Commis-
sion in a special meeting Friday.
All officials spoke of a need
for any division to be made
'should take Into consideration
their need for a yault to keep im-
portant documents in.


CONSIDERATIONS MADE
At the special meeting Friday,
the Board tried to divide up the
extra space as desired by the offi-
cers, but without apparent suc-
cess. One plan would take most
of the Property Appraiser's office,
giving the space to the Tax Collec-
tor. It would also give the Elec-
tions Supervisor the. County
Judge's space and move the
Judge upstairs in the suite of of-
fices now occupied by the Circuit
Judge.
But this and similar plans
met all kinds of roadblocks. The
Property Appraiser said he need-
ed adequate space for a map
room capable of meeting the pub-
lic in. The Sheriff needs storage
room to place evidence inside for
secure keeping.
REACH A SETTLEMENT
... TEMPORARILY
In a special meeting, just for


the purpose of allotting space
Tuesday evening, the Commis-
sion finally adopted a plan which
would alleviate the problems of
everyone for the time being, at
least.
The Board gave the Elections
Supervisor a private restroom by
cutting a door into another suite
of offices. The Tax Collector was
given a computer room-her most
immediate need-by carving it
out of the Property Appraiser's of-
fice. Extra space was given the
Property Appraiser and his map
room, by allotting him a portion
of the offices formerly occupied by
the Extension Agent and gave the
Sheriff several storage rooms for-
merly used by the Clerk's office.
What does the Clerk get? He
gets most of the space vacated by
the School Board.
And everybody's happy .
for the time being.


Burglars ruined a door getting into electric range and other furnishings. The
this beach house, then left an empty hole burglary was one of eight beach houses
between two cabinets after removing the hit during the past five weeks.


Burglars Hit Beach Homes


Victimize Eight In Five
Vandals are busy in the South Beaches
area of Gulf County, with wholesale thefts
from vacation homes in the area, according
to Britt Pickett, a realtor who manages most
of the rental business for many of the victims
of the burglars.
"We've had at least eight homes hit in the
short time since August 1, from the Park on
the Peninsula to Indian Pass. All burglaries
seem to be following the same method of op-
erations and seem to know when the homes
are vacant," Pickett said.
MOST RECENT BURGLARY
The most recent burglary was in Treasure
Shores subdivision, sometime during the lat-
ter part of last week. A neighbor noticed a
door ajar and knowing nobody was at home,
called authorities.
The home had been ransacked for valua-
bles. An electric range, a bedroom suite and
a dining room suite had been removed from
the home. A French door facing the beach


Weeks In South Gulf
had been pried open and the door frame
broken, to gain entry. The door was left
open, allowing rain to come into the living
room, buckling the pine flooring in several
places.
TAKE FURNISHINGS, ELECTRONICS
'This is the first time they have taken fur-
niture," Ronald Pickett said. "Usually they
just take things like VCR's, microwave ovens,
stereos, radios, TVs and other electronic
equipment. They usually search the homes
thoroughly for valuables," he added.
Pickett said the burglars usually enter
the homes from the beach, load up a pick-up
or small truck and go on their way. 'This has
been happening just since August, but it has
been frequent since that time," Pickett add-
ed.
"We'd like for people in the area seeing
anything suspicious or suspecting something
unusual is going on to call authorities.
Somehow, we have to assist the authorities
in stopping this activity," Pickett said.

Main Street

The Long Way Around

WE WERE DISMAYED when we learned Port St. Joe didn't
make the final cut when the cities being included in the Main
Street program were announced. Two years of hard work seemed
to have been rebuffed by the committee making the selection.
True, Port St. Joe didn't stand to gain much by being named
a Main Street community. There was very little money involved
in the designation, although there was considerable valuable
help in coming up with solutions for which we don't yet have the
answer to.
There were other sources of help and finances which the
Main Street designation would make available through associa-
tion and because of the fact we were trying to do something for
ourselves and wished our community to be better.
MAINLY, WE WERE disappointed because we were told that
Port St. Joe was a "shoo-in" for the designation this year after
narrowly missing last year. The only reason we didn't receive the
appointment last year, we were told, was because Marianna ap-
plied first and the committee didn't usually make two awards in
:the. same portion, of the state in a year. Since Marianna was se-
:lected last year, that was the criteria for passing us by, or so we
-were to led to believe.
-: Then, this year, we were told that Port St. Joe didn't have the
:population to qualify for designation. Since we knew 5.000 pop-
ulation was one of the criteria, we pointed this out to the direc-
tot of Main street last year. We were told to ignore that portion of
the criteria, and apply anyhow.
:BUT ALL IS NOT LOST. even now. The national Main Street
'officials are coming to Port St. Joe today to see what we have
.first hand. They were impressed with the historical portion of
:our history. It made an impression that the state's first constitu-
-tion was drawn up and signed right here.
We have been promised all of the goodies of a Main Street de-
silgnee because of our historical background. We won't get the
-$10,000 grant, but we will get the services of experts on develop-
ment, on business matters, on how to make our town more at-
tractive. We were after mainly these things to begin with. We
won't be too disappointed if the Main Street people come
through with them.
Along with our Chamber of Commerce and our downtown
:Revitalization Committee and City Commission, the impetus is
still there to do something for Port St. Joe. This just may be the
"boost that makes it happen earlier.


A Bad Rap

A NEWS STORY IN the papers last week end told of how the
iFlorida Department of Health and Rehabilitative Services has
proposed to make a rule which states that every restaurant
which serves raw oysters for consumption by people, or oysters
on the half shell must, in effect, post a warning label.
This label, much like the one placed 6n cigarettes, would
warn that eating raw oysters may be hazardous to those people
with certain health problems. People with liver-related diseases
.-should not eat. them, according .to.t.he news article. The.warning
label will warn people of that fact. These people should not eat
raw oysters at all. They have always been dangerous for people
with such diseases.
Another case of HRS telling people to do something most
people with these ailments should have sense enough not to do,
even without the warning. And, of course, what will posted
warnings such as this do to the oyster industry? It will put an
Unnecessary scare into hordes of people who can eat oysters
with no ill effects at all. *
OF COURSE, A tainted or spoiled oyster will make a person
with the constitution of a steel-driving man sick. A person who
;not only will, but can, ingest such a spoiled oyster doesn't need
jto be eating the delicate, tasty bivalves anyhow. If he can't taste
1the difference between a good and a spoiled oyster, he doesn't
Fully appreciate the delicacy, anyhow.
i People who .look forward to the "good" oyster eating season
,know a good eating oyster is slightly plump. not excessively wa-
:tery, slightly salty and doesn't have a trace of spoiled taste about
it. These oysters come only in the fall and winter [with an "R" in
the name] months of the year; preferably after cold weather sets
in. Any knowledgable oyster-eater knows that!
So,'HRS doesn't need to go about spoiling raw oyster eating
among those who really appreciate them. Better they should ed-
,ucate people on how and when to eat the shell fish when they
wan best be appreciated.

Van Earl Comes To Iowa


Kesley
Colbert


I remember exactly when the
voice first spoke to me. It was ear-
ly in the spring, on a Saturday
night, just a few minutes after
11:00. I'd finished a Sunday
school lesson and had eased intoL
"my" chair and turned on ESPN
to catch the scor-
"Daddy! DadDY! DADDY!"
I Jumped straight up! Josh
was coming down the hall yelling


like the crew chief in the middle
of a Dale Earnhardt pit stop at
Talladega.
"Channel 8. Dad! Channel 81"
I grabbed the flipper. Please,
God, don't, let it be bad news
about Stan Musial, I know he's
sick....
"Josh? They're giving the
score of the Angel-Indian game.
Son, try to contain yourself. It's
early in the season, but these
guys are going nowher-"
'The announcer, Dad! Listen
to the announcer!"
Albert Belle didn't just hit a
home run. He hit it DEEEEEP
overthewall in LEFFTTT
FIEELDDD. J. T. Snow wasn't
thrown out at home plate-he


was MEEATT at the DISHHH!
Between highlights the camera
quickly catches an overweight fan
wearing the ugliest hat in the his-
tory of mankind. Hey, NICE
HATTT. The line was delivered
dripping with sarcasm. But it was
friendly no harm intended-
I've worn a few bad hats-
myself-type-sarcasm. No offense
meant or taken. Not many TV
people have that ability. This an-
nouncer was tone of us and he
was loving it.
"Josh, who is this guy?"
an Earl Wright."
Van Earl changed our sum-
mer, and, I think, our whole lives.
Josh is seventeen, Jesse fourteen.
You know how it is at that age.


Spendifig time with them is out of
the questions Josh brings a girl
over to the house-he stands out
on the porch, points through the
window, and says, 'That's my
Dad." We're a blessed family and
the love is there, but, "Mom and
Dad, you do your thing, and we'll
do ours."
A big barrier crumbled this
summer. We couldn't figure out
Van Earl's schedule, so we had to
watch every CNN sportscast. We
didn't have to tell Josh when to
come in. He was home by 10:30
so he could eat a bite and be
ready for the sports at 11:00. We
celebrated, as a family, when the
CNN sports logo turned edgewise
and we heard...COOMMINGGG
UPPP- NEXXXT....
We tape the shows now.
When friends come over, we pull
out Van Earl. We don't discuss
Coach or Beverly Hills 21011. We
don't care what Vanna is wearing.
We talk aboutt Van Earl's side
way glances or the time he waved
as the' camera pulled back and
the voice-over told us how many
friendly miles you could find in
Alamo territory."
Cathy says that he most cer-
tainly was the guy in high school
who got the pot stirring and then
eased back with that little impish
grin while everyone else tried to
figure out what was going on.
This story, of course, is just
flbdng to take off. Van Earl is too
genuine not to be noticed. People
are beginning to stop me on the
street. "Hey; did you 'hear Van
Earl's call on the 'Cat in the hat'!"
"Did you see the tie he had on!"
"What about the boat in the
. Cards-Dodger game" '"When is
Van Earl going to get his own
show?"
Every once in a while, a man
behind the mike comes along that
transcends the sport, the place,
the time, the event to capture the
feel, the essence, the spirit of the
competition. He can relay it to us
because he can relate to us. The
sport is fun and games, but it's
not the .end of the earth. It's im-
portant, but it's not life or death.
It's useful, it can be uplifting, it's
enjoyable but it's not essential.
Van Earl, to use his own term is
"loving life and ling large". And
he's trying to brilgg some of us
along with him.
CNN has a gold minel
Ted, people will come. They'll
come to CNN for reasons they
can't even fathom. They'll turn on
CNN sports not knowing for sure
why they're doing' it. They'll Jflp it
on as Innocent as children, longing
for the past. They'll look to Van
Earl 'cause he'll offer them a re-
serve seat along one of the base
lines where they sat when they
were children and cheered their
heroes...the memories will be so
thick they'll have to brush them
away from their faces. Van Earl
reminds us of all that once was
good, and, it could be again.
Ahhhh, people will come, Ted. Peo-
ple will most definitely come.
We were just finishing supper
a couple of weeks ago when Jesse
spoke up, "Mom, do you think
Van Earl likes pizza?"
Folks, we have an hour and a
half discussion sitting around the
table as to what Van Earl eats.
Now, you. may think that's silly,
but I remind you, the boys are
seventeen. and fourteen. I don't
care if we were discussing the

Sharks Weren't Always An Impressive Group....


WHAT A DIFFERENCE a few
years makes in the way of doing
things. I thought of this the other
day when the Sharks took to the
football field with the Wewahitch-
ka Gators, up in Wewa. They cer-
tainly play football differently
from the middle '40's.
Oh, the goal is the same. One
team tries to score on the other
without being killed beforehand,
and the opponent tries to keep
the other team from scoring, no
matter what. Rain, cold, heat, nor
li1htning and thunder has any ef-
fect on the football player.
But, in spite of this, things
are now different. The kids play-
ing football now, might have quit
the first day of practice back in
the '40's. About the only thing'
which is the same is the shape of
the ball.
What brought all this to mind
was a copy of a picture taken
from an old school year book
printed back in 1946, with a pic-
ture of the team in it. There were


/


11 men shown, but it was more
than likely the only boys in the
senior and junior class.
The picture was made the
first year of the late coach Marion
Craig's tenure here in Port St.
Joe. That was back in 1946,
when he was slim and trim and
the team was lean and mean.
BACK IN 1946, the Sharks
were not only hard-pressed to
have enough equipment to play
with; they were hard-pressed to
find enough boys to play the
game. Back during the "Big War",
the Sharks played six-man foot-
ball because they couldn't field


enough men to play 11-man.
Back then-in the six man,
days-the football field was adja-
cent to the present Elementary
School in a field which had been
used as a race track by the sport-
ing gentry of Old St. Joseph. The
remains of the circular wooden;
fence were still there when the
field became host to another
sport. The old football field is now
the parking lot for the present
day stadium.
Later, the team moved its
games to the rear of the Centen-
nial Building between the build-
ing and Long Avenue. Here
players had two reasons to avoid


being tackled. One was to prevent
being stopped from advancing the
ball and the other was to avoid a
backside filled with the sand-
spurs which furnished the sod for
the field.
Our opponents were of neces-
sity closer than the Monticellos or
Florida Highs or Bonifays of to-
day. There was no gas available
to travel.
The football field back then
was out in the suburbs of town
because Port St. Joe didn't go
that far. The town stopped at
16th Street. The football field was
out in the woods!
BOYS PLAYING ON the team
had several duties they had to
perform; especially on homecom-
ing days. Most games were played
in the afternoons because there
were no lights to brighten up the
playing field. These didn't come
along until the team moved inside
.the present baseball field, which
was built by the Rotary Club


around, 1950. The sandspurs
were still present, though.
The team players in the late
40's had to escort the Homecom-
ing Queen candidates at half-
time. Imagine escorting a sweet-
smelling girl dressed to a 'T' with
the faint odor of a hog emanating
from your armpits! Those who
played in the band also had to
do double duty. You could tell
which ones played football,
though. They were the ones wear-
ing uniforms.
OH, THINGS WERE different
in those days. One had different
things to be concerned about
than they do in these times.
In the early '40's, the boys on
the team wore tank helmets for
protection, because they were all
that was available. The coach was
an airman from Tyndall and he
"'borrowed" the headgear for his
charges to use. Pads weren't all
that great, either. Of course, the
team didn't use many. The man-


datory mouthpiece of today was a
foreign object to early Sharks.
.If a boy got hurt during a
game he had to sit on the side-
lines huddled in a blanket, if one
was available, and wait until the
game for the coach to wrap his
injury in tape, slap him on the
bottom and tell him not to miss
practice Monday.
No such thing as a week or
two off with a sprained ankle.
Tape. that sucker up and go boy!
We have a game to play!
IN SPITE OF THE lack of
equipment which boys on the
team of today take for granted;
men of today have fond memories
of those days when football sea-
son came around.
It was considered a badge of
courage to play with an injury;
have a back-side full of sandspur
barbs; have the coach slap you
on the bottom because he
knew that he was a member of
the FOOTBALL TEAM

Middle-Age Romance
One of the major complaints women have about men they have
been married to for about twenty years is that the men lose their ro-
mantic natures. I think it's time we men take a look at this phe-
nomenon and decide, once and for all, what is happening; especial-
ly since we are to blame.
Let's face the hard, cold facts, men, and ask ourselves some
harsh questions and see of we can get to the bottom of this most
perplexing problem.
First of all, to qualify yot must have been married for fifteen
years or more. If you have been married for less than that (to the
same woman) you don't qualify because you could still be in your
mid-to-late thirties. Men, as I know them, are still romantic and
very naive about life with no more experience than that. Some of
these men still send flowers to their wives, call them every day from
the office or job site, and such tommy-rot as that. They haven't
learned that there are more pressing issues at hand.
If you have been married 15 years or more, ask yourself the fol-
lowing questions:
j& Do you kiss your wife goodbye when you leave for work and
hello when you return home In the evening?
0 Do you set aside at least two nights a week for just you and
your wife so you can spend some "special" time together? ,
A During the past three months have you bought your wife a
present for no reason?
Do you tell your wife that you love her each day and try to
make love to her each night as Dr. Ruth suggests? (Dr. Ruth, of
course. Is about 90-years-old and, in my opinion, got a late start in
the romance arena.)
oa Do you send your wife a card at least once a month telling
her how much you miss not being with her during the day?;
i Do you take charge and cook dinner and clean the kitchen at
least three nights a week?
A Do you take your wife out to dinner at least once a month
(I'm talking about some special place, not McDonald's or Burger
King)?
on Do you occasionally tell your wife how wonderful her mother
is even though you can't stand the air she breathes?
Men, the questions are before you and you must answer them
truthfully. You can grade 'your romantic ability by the following
scale. If you answered YES to:
At least two-You are about average in the romance depart-
ment.
Two-to-five-you are a regular knock-em-out romantic who
loves the ground your wife walks on.
Five or more--you are hopelessly in love with your wife and
,there is no hope for you In this life. Please stay away from the rest
of our wives
By the way, If you answered NO to all of the questions, the guy


;with five-or-more is probably havin

THE SHARK-GATOR football
rivalry took up right where it left
,off Friday night, with both teams
struggling for possession of the
Gulf County Trophy. It was the
renewal of a rivalry which had
been interrupted last year due to
scheduling problems.
The Sharks appeared as if
they would make a run-away of
the game at the beginning, scor-
ing 21 points In the first half: but
it was to be the last third of the fi-,
nal period before the Sharks were \
to be on the board again.
SCORE EARLY
The Sharks got on the board
early in the game. Taking the
opening kick-off, the team was
stalled after a five yard plunge by
Kevin Lee and two attempted
passes. Eric Ramsey went back to
punt, but the Sharks gambled
early in the game and faked the
punt. After a first down on the
Gator 42, the Sharks sent Ja-
maail Fenn dashing over the right
side of the line for a 42 yard gain-
er. He fumbled the ball on the
tackle and it bounced over the
goal line where Jeremy Tull coy-
ered it for the toichdoWn., The
run for the extra point was'jhort.
As the first period was wind-'
ing down, Kevin Lee barged up
the middle with a 20 yard dash
and the Sharks' second TD. Butts
carried the ball across for two ex-
tra points.
The Sharks put six more
points up on the first play of the
second quarter, as Ninamdi Frazi-
er broke loose on a 25 yard dash
for the third touchdown of the
evening with only seven seconds
gone on the clock. Eric Monteiro
began a perfect evening by kick-
Ing the first of his two ektra point
attempts.

Core Visits Russia on European Tour

Tells Rotarians of Some of His Experiences In Kremlin, Red Square


One of the Port St. Joe Rotary
Club's members, George Core,
has recently returned from a tour
of Germany and Russia and told
the Club of some of his adven-
tures in the former Communist
super power last Thursday.
Core said he flew to Russia as
part of a tour package, leaving
from .Panama City. Their first
landing on the European conti-
nent was in Copenhagen, Den-
mark. Then on to Leningrad, Rus-
sia, with side trips to Moscow and
other. points of interest.
Core said 'he saw.'several
atomic power plants in the vicini-
ty, but the apartments built as
homes for the people by the gov-
ernment, were falling down. 'The


power plants and government
buildings were beautiful, sub-
stantial buildings, but the build-
ings which housed the people
were coming apart."
RED SQUARE IMPRESSIVE
The speaker was most im-
pressed by his visit to Red Square
and the Kremlin..
The Kremlin isn't the seat of
government at all, according to
Core. The Kremlin is a huge wall
surrounding five churches which
are used for affairs of state, coro-
nations, weddings and special
events and parties. Each of the
five churches has a different
function in the Russian social,
and government life. "Most of the


historical figures of Russia are
buried in one of the five church-
es," he said.
'The place is alive with pick-
pockets," Core said. They work in
gangs, converging on a victim and
picking him clean of valuables.
'The Kremlin -and surrounding
buildings are very ornate and
contain some of the world's most
valuable art treasures. Gold is
everywhere, both as art treasures
and finish and decoration on the
buildings," he continued.
A crown made especially for
one of ancient Russia's rulers
was on display in one of the gov-
ernment buildings and was val-
ued at $7 million,, according to
Core. "It was so large, I don't


know how he held his head up
with it on," Core quipped.
'ADEQUATE' PROTECTION
Russians of long ago made a
huge cannon for the Kremlin with
a 42 inch bore. A pile of cannon
balls were lying before. the can-
non in a neat stack. 'They
couldn't use the. cannon because
the cannon balls were too large to
fitinto the muzzle. They were also
too heavy for a man to lift into the
barrel. Still, the Russian leaders
would invite heads of state to visit
and show them the cannon,
guarding the entrance to the
area, as a show of strength, ac-
cording to Core.
While on his 15-day trip, the
Cores also took a trip into Germa-
ny, visiting both East and West
Berlin. "It was like entering two
different countries," Core said.
East Berlin still contained some
of the bombed out buildings from
World, War IU and some of the
buildings still showed the bullet
marks inflicted by armies fighting
in the city. By contrast, he said
West Berlin, was riyaled in beauty
only by Copenhagen. one of the
most beautiful cities in the world.
"In Berlin, the people were
everywhere, rushing back and
forth, busy, busy, busy The two
sections of Berlin were a stark
contrast of the two types of gov-
ernment they had. East Berlin
was drab and dingy while West
Berlin was a modern, beautiful,'
bustling city," Core said., 'You all
should take that trip. You'd enjoy,
it," he added.

you would usually have to look
on a college campus; but at Port
St. Joe High School you could
find the newly published autho-
ress, Mrs. Pat Lowrey. Mrs. Low-
rey will be the guest writer for a
monthly feature entitled "On Be-
ing Southern" to be published in
Mississippi Magazine. The PRIDE
flag was flown in honor! of Mrs.
Lowrey being published.
The football team was hon-
ored as well with the PRIDE flag
for their outstanding effort
against the Niceville Eagles. They
should also be congratulated for
their win over Wewahitchka of
35-0. This Friday night the
Sharks will be on the road once
more as they travel to Chipley to
play the Tigers.
The football team and Mrs.
Low&ry aren't the only PRIDE flag
honorees. The Senior Class Offi-
cers; Mrs. Beliveau; Mrs. Ellmer's

MORE ABOUT
FAMJLIES


.By
Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.


We have spoken previously about the importance, of families in
the lives of children. Children need a stable, loving environment in
order to grow and to become well-rounded adults. More and more,
these families are becoming unavailable to children, because a fam-
ily was never formed.
Statistics tell us that in. 1992, 24% of single women between 18
and 44 had babies. This compares to 15% in 1982. The rate is con-
tinually rising. This trend is across all social and ethnic classes.
Men and romen at a very elemental level are failing to create
the bond that will allow them to support each other through the
years of child rearing.
Some states are pursuing fathers to require them to give at
least financial support to any offspring. This will give some relief to
taxpayers, but does not help the emotional and mental health of the
child. Single mothers, overwhelmed with the complete care of the
child 100% of the time, often become abusive. The state is forced to
intervene for the safety of the child, and that puts the state in an
unacceptable role. The state should not be in the business of rais-,
Ing children.
For many years in Israel, the mode of child care has been the
Kibbutz. All the parents are off working, and the children are in the
-kibbutz nursery or school all day. Parents see the child only at
night. Studies have shown that children reared in this mariner have
a loyalty to the common goal, but are often unable to'establish deep
and long-lasting personal relationships.
There is.no question that the building block of society is not be-
ing formed. Thoughtful people need to be creative in devising meth-
ods to encourage and maintain families if we are, to maintain the
fabric of our society.

Oh how lofty are their eyes!
And their eyelids are lifted up.
There is a generation whose teeth are like swords.
And whose fangs are like knives,
To devour the poor from off the earth,
And the needs from among men.
(Proverbs 30:11-14 NKJV)
The presidency of Bill Clinton is being heralded as a changing of
guards, a rising of a new generation. There is a Baby Boomer in the
White House. Baby Boomers are a very important, generation. If you
don't believe that just ask one of us. After the War (WW II), our parents
gave birth to us. We have been told since we were born that we were
special. Most of us believe it We are, as I recently heard a fellow pastor
described, "legends in our own minds." If you were born from 1946 to
1964, you are one of us.
Agur said in proverbs, '"There is a generation ." That's us. Al-
though we are large in numbers, we are a diverse group. Bill Clinton is
a Baby-Boomer, and so am I. But he is more than a decade older than
me. We are not a homogenous group in age or attributes. I sometimes
resent the demographers treating us as if we are all alike. For example
not all of us went to Viet Nam or dodged the draft. I fell through the
cracks. I was too young for Viet Nam and too old for the draft. During
my "Wonder Years," I watched the war on TV, later to be spared even
having to register for Selective Service. But the time that changed, I was
well past 18.
Our importance has been exaggerated largely because we are such
a large segment of the US population. Baby-Boomers account for about
'a third of our total population. There are a lot of us. Our parents told us
we are special. They told us to get an education so we could get a good
job. While this has not proved to be entirely true, we are by and large a
well-educated group. Most of us have good jobs and most of us attained
the affluence level of our parents more quickly than any other genera-
tion, but not without a cost.
But some things are pretty much true of all of us. We are spoiled.
We've had it pretty good all of our lives. We've been treated special.
While our parents sacrificed for us, we have sacrificed our children. We
have systematically slain the unborn. There are so many of us, and we,
have killed so many of our children, there will riot be enough people
working when we get old so we can get our Social Security check. We
will probably sit alone in Nursing Homes, but who will come visit? For
that matter who is going to run the homes? We killed the generation
that would have been our care-givers. The ancients sacrificed their chil-
dren on the altar of Moloch, we have sacrificed ours on the altar called
Mammon.
We have slain the unborn, but have not been too kind to the ones
we let live either. Before they are weaned, we have carted them off to
day-care, so we can get back to pursuing our material dreams. I con-
stantly hear husbands say, "my wife has to work for us to survive." I
hear women say "I want to stay home with the baby, but I can't".
While these statements are sometimes true, I see these same parents:
build new homes, drive new cars, and dress their kids in designer fash-
ions. They eat out often and are very fond of vacations also. So parents
who say they can't afford to stay at home are right, not if you choose to

live like most of us like to live. Our Gold Card existence is difficult to
maintain on just one paycheck. Whenever things were tight financially
when I was growing up, my Dad always got a second job. I blame the
men of my generfiubn for this dilemma more than anyone else. Our fa-
thers had many faults, but being the leader of and provider for their
family was not one of them. My wife and I have chosen to do it different-
ly. She is a college graduate who stays at home. With four kids, and a
Pastor for a husband, she stays busier than most. But she is an excep-
tion. Most of "this generation" chose to do it another way. Kids are great
if we "choose" to keep them, but don't let them keep you from having a
life is the creed of "this generation." If they are an inconvenience in the
womb we abort them. When they are a nuisance in our lives, we will get
them out of the way. "There is a generation"-I wonder what the children
of "this generation" will do with all of us, when we get old and start be-
ing in their way? '
'There is a generation"-One of us is in the White House, and the
rest of us are slowly but surely taking up the reigns of power in the gov-
ernment, in the church, and in education. Our parents have told us we
are special and we believe it. We had better be. The deficits we have
been left to pay, the toxic water and air we have been left to clean, and
the depravity of morals which dominates our day' will demandthat this
special generation do some extraordinary things. Pray for us. Pray that
Agur was talking about some other generation past. But his words
sounded so much like us that it hurt. 'There is a generation." God for-
give me that I am so much a part of it.

CONQUERING
CORNS
Countless people are
troubled by painful corns.
These hardened layers of
skin cells build up be-
cause of shoe pressure
and friction on the skin
over bony areas of the
foot. Corns develop most
often on the toes, but can
occur elsewhere on the
foot, too. Some people
seek "do-it-yourself' relief
from corns without realiz-
ing the risks they are tak-
ing. Trying to reduce corns
with sharp instruments at
home risks infection.
Some corn remedies can
cause acid burns.
The podiatrist has two
objectives. First he re-
moves the corns with care-
ful procedures that look
very simple. Beyond that.
the podiatrist seeks out
the underlying causes to
reduce the recurrence of
the corns. The cause often
lies in poor choices or poor
fit of footwear or in devia-
tions from normal behav-
ior of the foot in motion.
Getting rid of corns is a re-
lief. Getting rid of the.
cause is even better.

High School
By Larry A. Mathes
Well, the St. Joe game" has come and gone. Now it's time to get
ready for Bronson, a small town 14 miles this side of Williston
(which is a few miles this side of Ocala). Small town, small school-
but a good class A football team with two very good running backs.
The Gators will have to put St. Joe behind them and get ready to
play a more inspired game this Friday. Game time is 6.30 p.m. CT.
Driving time is about 4 1/2 hours, not counting stop. I hope the
Gator fans will make the trip.
A word of thanks is due Bill Traylor and Oscar Redd-they were
especially helpful marshalling local resources to get GATOR Field
ready for play. Luthus Hand and his band of workers were also to
be thanked for the many hours of hard work getting the stadium
ready. Community support is what it is all about!
Terry Stryker's WHS band made its first appearance and
sounded great. They'll get even better as the year progresses It real-
ly sounded great hearing the FIGHT Song, which has been missing
from the games for a couple of years. I'm sure I heard the Alma
Mater played as well-another piece sorely missed.
The Junior High team opens this Thursday night at 6:00 p.m.
against Apalachicola at GATOR Field. Come out and support these
young men under the direction of Coach John Franzese.
Volleyball opens soon-they'll need your support as well.
Those progress reports (to those who need them) should be in
your hands by now. Please make contact with the teachers if your
child's having problems. It is never "too soon" to check out their
grades! .
Parents-know where your student is and what he/she is do-
ing. Set some time lines-make 'sure the student gets sufficient
sleep.
Talk with him/her to let your student know that you care about
what is happening. They need your support and guidance.
