Opposition to Zoning Change


Objection Raised to Alteration of Residential


Summer's Last Gasp
Summer bid us all a not-so-very fond farewell Mon-
day, with a scorcher of a day which caused the ther-
mom6terathe'tiWewaeBantkf0ol'loar -th' iO0( -egree "
mark. Reports of a couple of other 100 degree days
during the middle of the season have been made but no:
visible records were available. This was the first day of
the "heater" to be recorded on the thermometer.
The reading was recorded Monday around 3:00 p.m.,-
with one person reporting the reading had crept up to
101 just a short while later.
Tuesday was the first day of fall, With a promise of
milder temperatures to come.


Two ordinances were up for
adoption at Tuesday night's City
Commission meeting, with one
meeting vocal opposition and the:
other, none at all.
An ordinance stipulating
building restrictions between
Woodward and Monument Ave-
nues and from Sixth to Twentieth"
Streets-the heart of Port St.'
Joe's residential distrfct-faced
opposition from a single person.
David White objected to the desig-
nation of the area to single-
family, non-business operation.
The change was made in des-
ignation of type dwellings to be lo-
cated in the area at the request of
a host of people from Woodward
Avenue who came to the Board
protesting construction of a mul-.
ti-family rental unit in their
neighborhood about a month ago:
The complaint, which represented
nearly all the residents from 10th
Street South on the street, result-
ed in the change to the ordi-
nance. .
White told the Commission,
Tuesday, that he had purchased,
the only remaining vacant lots. on
Woodward south of 10th Street.
and was planning a duplex for.
one and had not yet decided what,
he would do with the other. White
already had a building permit for
the one building, which would
not be affected by the change in
the ordinance. He was objecting
to the ordinance because it limits
his options on his second loLt'"I
may even decide to build a house.
for me to live in on the other lot 1
don't know yet what I'll do, but i.
would like the zoning to rema.'.
as it was when I purchased 'the
property to leave my options
open," he said.
Mayor Pate explained to,
White the ordinance had been
long time in the making because e
-..af complaints'people,had made'-n
the area in regards to business,
activities carried on in several
homes, "We have had sever al
,complaints about that and were
addressing only that subject until
we received the complaints about
your area. Frankly, we all'
thought the street was zoned for
single-family dwellings and 'found
out only after this came up that
one side of the street was in the
single-family zone and the other


side of the street was in a multi-
family zone," the Mayor said.
The Commission decided
unanimously to stick by their
proposed ordinance change and
voted to finalize those changes
Tuesday night.
GARBAGE RATES
The Commission also amend-
ed their garbage collection ordi-
nance, hiking the rates and elimi-
nating the free bag portion of the
law.
Frank Healey, public works
superintendent, presented a com-
parison of Port St. Joe's rate and
rates of other cities in the vicini-
ty, showing the new local rate
was right in the middle of a struc-
ture which ran from $10.00 a


month to $16.00 per month.
Port St. Joe's new rate will be
$14.00 per month for twice a
week pick-up and weekly trash
removal. Healey pointed that
many of the rates shown on his
poster were for only once a week
pick-up and none included a
trash service.
Michael Hammond asked if,
the new rates would cover the ac-
tual cost of providing garbage and
trash service and disposal. City
Auditor Jim Maloy said it would
almost pay its own way, but not
quite. The new rate is expected to
generate a half million dollars per
year.
The ordinance was unani-
mously adopted by the Board and
will become effective in the month


Requirements

of October.
THANKS TO THE BOARD
Jerry Stokoe was present to
report on the status of the Senior
Citizens agreement with the
County to furnish property for
their new Senior Citizens Center.
Stokoe said the organization had
reached agreement for the piece
of property which would be fur-
nished at a rate of $1.00 per year
for a period of 50 years.
'We just wanted a good place
to put the Center and appreciate
the efforts the City Commission
made in seeing that we had a lo-
cation to put our building," Sto-
koe .said. The City had offered
property it had between Sixth

Yeager to Chair Board in '93-'94

Re-alignment Relieves Clifford of Duties; Wells Elevated


In special meetings this week,
the Gulf County Commission has
taken a three important steps in
Gulf County government
First, Commissioner Warren
Yeager was named Chairman of
the Board for the coming fiscal
year which begins with the first


WARREN YEAGER
. Board Chairman


meeting in October.
Yeager is in his first year of
service on the Commission, repre-
senting Group Five. He will suc-
ceed Commissioner Nathan Pe-
ters, Jr. to the position.
Another freshman Commis-
sioner, Michael Hammond, was
named vice-chairman. Following
the usuda line of progression,
Hammond will become Chairman-
in October 1994,


RELIEVE CLIFFORD
The Board also took further
action on the matter of Dan Clif-
ford, assistant to the Building De-
partment director. Clifford was
charged in a Commission meeting,
last Tuesday with actions which
were detrimental to the depart-
ment and his supervisors and
chastised by three of the Com-,
.... mislsoners at theaneeting." -
Since then, Clifford has been
the subject of a supervisor's in-
vestigation and released from his
Building Department duties as a
result of the investigation. Other
problems began to surface after
last Tuesday's meeting, with
.- three of the Commissioners say-
ing they no longer wanted Clifford
inspecting any jobs in their dis-
tricts. Building Department direc-
tor Don Butler advised the Com-


mission Tuesday that Clifford's
usefulness had been so ham-
pered until Butler felt he would
no longer be able to serve his de-
partment.
The Board then designated
Clifford as the full time Veterans
Service Officer at a salary of
$12,000 p-er year.
WELLS' STATUS
The Board also changed the
status of their administrative as-
sistant Larry Wells, due to chang-
es in the state's emergency man-
agement program, a duty Wells
also fulfilled on a part-time basis.
Since Hurricane Andrew, the
State of Florida has stepped up
its emergency management oper-
ations, providing a grant of
$60,000 per year to operate the
department As a result of the
.tale"i-equirE iefit. the Comnmis-
sion decided to employ an emner-
gency management coordinator,
giving him responsibility for
emergency management and the
County's new 911 emergency tele-
phone operation, which is going
into operation within a year.
Wells will remain in charge of
both operations, but the new em-
ployee will perform the day to day
activities required by the two ser-
vices.

Operation Coastal Clean-Up Attracts Crowd of Workers

Over 17,000 Pounds of Debris Collected for Gulf County's 30-Plus Miles of Beachfront Property


In the Gulf County version of the national
Coastal Clean-Up operation Saturday, chair-
man Guy Gammill's troops set another record
in Florida for Gulf County. Over 450 citizens.
young and "mature" took up their bags and
toured the beaches from county line to county
line, collecting some 17,700 pounds of trash
and debris from the beach and shore line. State
operators of the project remarked that Gulf
County had the largest percentage increase in
Florida of people joining in the operation and
number of pounds collected.
"Our team did a marvelous job," Gammill
said as he turned in his preliminary report
* Tuesday. 'The kids specially did a terrific job,"
he said. "We had them from every school in the


county, working every day from Wednesday
through Saturday on some section of the
beach."
Gammill said the army of trash sack bear-
ers covered the beaches like a herd of locusts,
picking up everything "from a 55-gallon drum
leaking oil to pieces of paper which had been
carelessly cast aside by some beach visitor,"
Gammill said.
GROWING EVERY YEAR
The chairman said this is his fourth year,
heading up the beach beautification drive. He
said "It gets bigger each year. Last year we had
about 350 collectors who picked up 12,120
pounds of trash."


The trash is collected, placed in plastic bags
and left beside the highway for pick-up. 'The
collectors did a fine job. They made several
trips to make sure it was picked up before it
was scattered again," Gammill said.
He gave credit to the Gulf County Commis-
sion who furnished a pick-up service along the
highway. He also gave credit to Argus Services,
a garbage collection contractor working in the
unincorporated areas of Gulf County, who
placed a huge dumpster at Indian Pass to place
the bags of trash in. 'They knew they would get
other trash as well, but they placed them there.
for our use, anyhow. We appreciated that ges-
ture," Gammill said. "And don't forget Chris
Brumbaugh," he said. "Chris was out all day


Saturday picking up filled bags along the
beach, transporting them to a collection point."
HAD HELP FROM EVERY DIRECTION
'You wouldn't believe the help we had," the
chairman said. "People from all over. People
who just showed up with things we could use.
They came with ice, cold drinks, cash, trans-
portation, cups, etc. We had everything we
needed to do the job properly."
"I'm really looking forward to next year's
clean-up emphasis. Maybe, in the meantime,
some of these workers, or others, can adopt a
section of the beach and keep it clean all year
long. Wouldn't that be neat?" Gammill re-
marked.

2nd Chance,

...or In The Case Of The Atlanta
Braves..A Third Chance!
IT ISN'T OFTEN you get a second chance at success. Of
course, it appears as if the Atlanta Braves are going to get an
unprecedented third opportunity at winning the World Series,
but this is real life we're talking about. It isn't a game of chance
or one you can manipulate by purchasing a 2.0 ERA pitcher or a
.300 hitter. We're talking about something one can do with his
own ingenuity or resources.
Of course, we're talking about Port St. Joe's second shot at
the "Main Street" perquisites in the same year. It doesn't happen
often, but the determination of our people in charge of seeking
these benefits is such that the Main Street people just couldn't
say "No" to our application, even though it was turned down for
technical reasons.
AS IT WAS TOLD the visiting Main Street representatives
last Thursday, "We don't want your measly 10 grand grant, we're
looking for expertise in just how we go about making our town
the vibrant community our people deserve." Hey, they knew then
we were serious about how to go about attracting additional
business to Port St. Joe. How do you go about improving a small
City with hardly any of the attractions a larger community has?
Where do we start?
Port St. Joe business leaders received the offer of all types of
expertise, then. The visitors made available to us the expertise
they had access to. We're going to get the valuable 'portion of
"Main Street" without having to jump through all the bureau-
cratic hoops in order to make ourselves sound serious.
THE STATE REPRESENTATIVE of Main Street was more
than eager to help. "I wish that was all the program did. Every
small town needs this type expertise and my organization has it
go give," he said.
Well, friend, you will find Port St. Joe and its leaders willing
and eager to accept and put to use anything you provide which
they feel will be advantageous to them. We'll start with your offer
of an economic survey to determine what we can best support
and to provide us with a bank of information interested firms or
businesses can use in the future.
You'll find Port St. Joe's leaders in community growth inter-
ested in seeing this come about, just to give our people the best
life possible in a small City atmosphere.



Another Gun Story

THE OPPONENTS OF private firearms ownership took a-
lump in the kisser the other day when a self-styled "liberal" pro-
fessor of Florida State University came up with data to show that
privately owned guns and easy access to them isn't the reason
behind the crime and killing in the United States. Of course,
most of us knew that all along, but we're unable to convince
some others of the fact.
The professor, Gary Kleck, says his research showed guns
are twice' as likely to be used defensively as aggressively; they
thwart crime far more often than they abet it; their availability
has little or no impact on provoking violence; they are far more
likely to be owned by law-abiding citizens than by criminals.
Guns serve a useful purpose in protecting a large, non-violent
majority of "victims" from a violent minority of criminals.
ALL OF THIS information came from conclusions drawn by
the FSU professor after his research into the use of guns by a
gun-loving populace. As the professor says, the conclusions wer-
en't to his liking as he has been an advocate of gun control,
along with several liberal 'organizations and groups. Kleck says
he, himself, was somewhat surprised at what his research re-
vealed.
Kleck said his research showed that for the most part hand
guns are purchased for protection from the criminal element. He
said, "Gradually I came, to see that the best available evidence,
did not support the case that is usually made for gun control:'
that guns automatically lead to violence."
Who owns the most guns? Kleck's survey showed that the
old and the wealthy do. That portion of the population which is
more vulnerable to criminals, own the most guns .. for their
own protection.
The reason the older and richer persons give for owning guns
apparently is effective,and serving its purpose. He says, "Guns
.tend to deter crime when in the hands of the victim, rather than
the criminal."
But of course, we already knew that, didn't we?

I was going to wait and do

but I've seen enough. The word -is
in on the new fall line-up of teleb-
vision shows. And that word, to
no one's surprise save Steveii
Brochco and. whoever's president
of NBC this week, is bad.
Much has been made in 1993
over this "viewer discretion'"
thing. The networks are going to

cretion advised." I'm all for in-
forming the viewing public before-
hand as to what they are about to
see. I just wish somehow you
could make 'em be honest. Here's
the viewer discretion disclaimer
that I'd like to see;..it's nine p.m.,

,,ny. The T.V. goes black and a

and reads the white, bold words

is bad. The direction is bad. The
sets are bad. It's not even Cleve-
land, it's studio 49 in Hollywood,
California, painted to look like
Cleveland. The goat is not real, el-,
ther...."
You know what would proba-
bly happen if they actually did
that? Everybody and his brother
would tune in to see just how bad
it really was. People are funny
and/or dumb. I bet you there are
folks in the world that actually
watch Crossfire.
I'm still smarting over that in-
cident with Murphy Brown and
the vice-president of the United
States of America. He flat out
says that it's not good for Ameri-


ca, for our youth, to have a situ-
allon comedy on national televi-
sion where an unmarried lady
has a baby....you know what I'm
saying here. The vice-president
was absolutely right. Guess who
got crucified? Murphy Brown
shoots to number one in the rat-
ings as they lampoon the vice-
president of the United States of
America for "butting in".
Incredible!
I don't watch Murphy Brown.
And if I knew who sponsored the
show, I wouldn't buyi their prod-
ucts, either.
Of course, the T.V. folks as-
sure us that they only show what
America wants to watch. That
"we" decide what "we" want to
see. I'm not so sure about that. I
fear they do quite a bit of "shap-
ing". I don't remember "wanting
to see" M.A.S.H., but after it had
been on a while, I began to watch
it. You following me here? Those
T.V. folks sit out in California or
up in New York and laugh at how
they are pulling us along by the
ears. It's scary to think that a guy
like Norman Lear has as much
power as he does.
I can't decide which I enjoy
not watching the most-situation
comedies, news magazine-types,
or the talk show genre.
I have figured out that one
guy writes all the sitcoms. He
uses the same story over and
over-his only problem is keeping
all the names straight. 60 Min-
utes got the news investigation
programs going. Now there's hun-
dreds of them, with more being
added each year. How many peo-
ple, stories, places can they "un-
cover"? And my real gripe with
them is they seek out, interview,
portray, and report these investi-
gations as if they were absolutely
factual. Of course, all the talk
shows are genuine. They have
our best interests at heart. From
Phil to Joan to Geraldo, they sim-
ply want to help us understand
our world and the normal, com-
mon, everyday people around
us....
While I'm on a roll here, and
before, Wesley canrt censor this
(you see, me and Lewis anLrd Rush
-are censored), let' me tell you
what upsets me the most. And it
has bothered me since way before
Two Mules For Sister Sara. I'm
sick and tired of the Hollywood
portrayal of men who have been
called out and set apart by God.
Robert Mitchum with a gun didn't
look like any 'preacher that I've
ever known. And on T.V. today,
the pastor Is shown as inept, im-
moral, unlearned, uncaring, un-
professional, and usually down-
right silly. A real buffoon. You
want a good laugh, throw a
preacher into the scene.. Folks, let
me tell you something; I take high
exception to that. I've had the
good fortune to have known many
preachers over the years, know
some great ones today. They have
all helped- me in ways you can't
imagine. I appreciate the care,
love, and concern so many have
shared with me.
Let me quickly take this one
step further. Guess how the lady

An American By Any OtherName Is Still An 'merican"


THIS MATTER OF ethnic
groups adopting names for their
particular race and/or nationality
Is beginning to cause people to be
ill at ease when addressing others
whose origin is different from the
addressee.
It's even delicate for column
writers. How do you discuss such
matters without offending some-
one? How do you know which
ethnic name is correct today?
Yesterday's reference to a particu-
lar race and/or nationality may
be totally wrong today. You see
the problem?
What made this column to be
born was a reference made over
WKGC radio the other day about
an "Indian-American" who was di-
recting a play. It still doesn't ex-
plain what the guy is. Why not
just say "American" and be done
with it? He is, if he has had his
citizenship changed, you know.
There was a time when for-
eigners who came to these shores
were proud to be known as


'Americans". I know a former
Brazilian who is pleased as
punch to be called an "American".
None of this Brazilian-American
for him.

THIS HAS NOTHING to do
with the acceptability of Brazil-
ians. The man just thought more
of this country than he did his
native land. So he switched from
"Brazilian" to "American".
I had a brother, who once
changed from "American" to "Bra-
zilian", then back. to "American"
again.
What .do you call him, "Am-


erican-Brazillan-American"? In
today's vernacular, that would be
proper.
I'm not sure we are ready for
all that. Just think of having to
fill out an application of any sort.
When you come to the portion
where they want to know your
nationality/race, it would take a
line eight inches across the page
instead of just a small box for an
initial.
BUT BACK TO the "Indian-
American". Did they mean an
American Indian? They didn't
say. Or did they mean an "India-


Indian-American"? You see my
problem? Suppose he is an India-
Indian-American. Suppose he
goes back to India again; is he
then an Indian-American-
Indian?" or just- an "American-.
Indian", of which we also have in
abundance in this land which
has been called the melting pot of
the world.
We really have a problem
here. If you want to be accurate,
you would refer to American Indi-
an Indians only as Americans
and everyone else would be Amer-
ican-something-else.
Including me. I would be a
English -Scotch -whatever -else -
happened-to-get-hin-the-way-Ame-
rican. Since my grandfather was
a cotton farmer from north Ar-
kansas, I may even be related dis-
tantly-very distantly-to Bill
Clinton. Mercyl I wouldn't want to
admit to that!
BECAUSE WE ARE the melt-
ing pot of the world, wouldn't it


be much simpler to call everyone
who. lives here Americans? Maybe
then we wouldn't be so concerned
with a person's nationality; a fact
. which seems to deal everyone
more problems than anything.
Just look at the Middle East.
The Jews can't stand the Arabs
and vice-versa. Didn't most of
them come from the original tribe
of Abraham? Aren't they distantly
related to each other? But, if they
bear that handle "Arab" or "Jew"
after their name they are un-
touchable to the other.
Look at Bosnia. All of their
"problems seem to stem from one
ethnic group having his under-
wear in a wad over the other.
Didn't they all come from that
part of the world? Aren't they all
Bulgarians, Yugoslavians, Czech-
oslovakians, who all lived togeth-
er once upon a time?
I CAN SEE where it is a dan-
gerous situation to continue on
with these hyphenated ethnic


names in the United States of
America.
We've already fought one civil
war in our nation ana we didn't
even have all these different han-
dles for our people back then. It
might be easier to work up a civil
war with the new way of ethnic
identification of Americans.
It all sounds so temporary;
these hyphenated names. It
seems as if the people can't ac-
cept that they really belong to any
nation and possibly that is the
reason for the compound identi-
ties.
These people are just plain
old Americans, whether we like it
:or not or whether they like it or
not. They have responsibilities to
this nation now and shouldn't be
ashamed to bear its name. I
doubt that any one of them, visit-
;ing the nation identified in the
first half of their hyphenated
names would refer to' themselves
as anything but Americans were
they to go back "home" for a visit.

Around Town
The stories you are about to read may or may not be true.
Someone told me that a certain man who lives in our town had
stayed out almost all night a few nights ago, doing some serious
partying. He attempted to slip in and go to bed without his wife
knowing he was in.
Just as he was slipping quietly under the covers, his wife awak-
ened and said, 'Where in the world have you been all night?"
"Honey, I was working late in Panama City and headed home
way before midnight and the bridge at Highland View was up and
got stuck. I've been sitting down there since before midnight waiting
for them to repair that bridge."
'You must think I'm crazy, you idiot!" she exclaimed. 'The new
bridge has been up for over three months and it doesn't have to be
raised!"
'Well," he replied as he turned over to go to sleep, "that's my
story and I'm sticking to it."
Another man who lives between Port St. Joe and Wewahitchka,
I was told, was seen a few days ago plowing his prized bull. The
man who qtw this phenomenon stopped, walked to where he was
plowing, and asked; 'What are you doing plowing this bull when
you've got a brand-new tractor up there under the shed?'
'Well, it's like this," the farmer replied."I just want this bull to
know that there's more to life than grazing in the pasture, sleeping
in the shade, and chasing them heifers all day."
Then there was the story of the man who was considered the
"tough-guy" of the county. It's told that he was out at one of our lo-
cal night spots one night a few nights ago when suddenly the door
was literally knocked off the hinges. The door was filled with a man
of such enormous size that he had to turn sideways and duck his
head to come into the establishment. The invader lumbered directly
to the bar and stood in a spot directly beside our local tough-guy.
When the intruder took his last step, he unknowingly placed
his left foot directly on top of the local tough-guy's right foot, and
there he stood, waiting to order a drink and heavy as lead.
A sudden hush came over the bar as the local man tapped the
big man on the shoulder and said, "Sir, excuse me, but it seems I
have somehow mistakenly placed my foot under yours. Would you
be so kind as to let me remove it before it causes you some discom-
fort?"
Finally, there is the story of the man who suspected his wife of
having an affair while he was working the night shift. He confided
his suspicions to a close friend and asked that the friend accompa-
ny him as a witness to confirm his suspicions. So, that night, in-
stead of going to work, he left as though he was, and he and his
friend went to a bar and drank for an hour or so and returned to
his home.
Sure enough, when they approached his house, there was a
strange car in the driveway. Slowly, he and the friend opened the
door and tip-toed inside where they found his wife and the stranger
in a very compromising situation.
The man was enraged and pulled his gun from his back pocket
and told the stranger to say his prayers because he was about to
meet his maker.
'Wait, Honey," the wife said. "Before you shoot him, 'there's a
few things you should know. You know the money I told you my
mother gave me to pay off our mortgage? Well, it didn't come from
mother. He gave it to me. And the new truck I bought you and said
my uncle left the money to me in his will? Well, the money for the
truck came from him. And the new bass boat I bought you for your
birthday? Well, I didn't win the Fantasy Five; he gave me the money
to buy it for you. Please think of these things before you do some-
thingrash."t-^ -*,--, .. o -- *. l : .... .
. The man holding. the gun turned to his friend and said, '"What
do you think I should do?"
'Well," the friend said without hesitating, "if I were you, I would
get over there and cover that feller up before he catches a cold!"
I said they may or may not be true!

Impression with Tourist


Dear Editor,
I take this opportunity to.
make you aware of the kindness
of one of your residents, Ron
Etheridge of Alabama Street, Port
St. Joe Beach.
We were returning from St.
Joseph State Park after spending
a very relaxing and enjoyable
weekend (how else with such a
beautiful location) on September
6 when an ignition failure oc-
curred, in a '92 model truck tow-
ing a fifth wheel trailer. Ron
stopped to see if he could be of
assistance. Hemade a trip to his
house and returned with a tow
line to pull both of the vehicles
clear of an Intersection that I had
blocked about eighty percent of.'
We then tried unsuccessfully to'
correct the problem. Ron had a:-'
fifth wheel towing attachment in
his truck, and so he pulled the
trailer to his house and lot for-
safe keeping. He also returned to
tow the truck to his house. This
gave me a much easier feeling of
safety with the- vehicles parked at-
his home rather than sitting on
the shoulder of Hwy. 98.
Rbn then drove us to Fort
Walton Beach and would only ac-
cept what he considered gas mon-
ey for the trip over and back. Ron

f OTHER BUSINESS
In other business matters,
the commission:
--Voted to accept the inter-
local agreement for the 911 emer-
gency telephone system, sched-
uled to be operational within a
year.
-Discussed parking on Mon-
ument Avenue and the traffic
hazard parked boats were pre-
senting at intersections. The
Commission decided to write the
state Department of Transporta-
tion for a solution to the problem.
Monument Avenue is a state
highway.
-Turned down a request
from Amy Shackleford to make
Martin Luther King's birthday a
paid holiday for City employees.
The consensus of the Commis-
sion was that they had no objec-
tions if the City labor force
wished to trade another holiday
for the birthday, but they would
not offer an additional paid holi-
day for the occasion.

CHILDRENWS HEALTH FORUM

.SECOND-HAND

SMOKE

By
Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.


Recent studies have shown there is an increase in respiratory
problems among those who do not smoke, but who are exposed to'
the smoke generated by others. These complaints vary from allergic
type symptoms like a running nose or burning sensation in the eyes
, to coughing and wheezing to lung cancer.
", Parents, who try very hard in other areas to love and protect
their children, do not think to carry this concern over to protecting
their own health and -that of their, children by avoiding smoke.
Some parents who have initiated a no-smoking policy in the house
; also do not think to extend this to the car. Probably smoke concen-
tration is the automobile is more intense and prolonged than it
would be in the house. Avoidance in both areas is essential.
*, Ear infections are another area where I believe smoke exposure
plays a large role. If your child is having a lot of ear infections,
k check to see he is not being exposed to a lot of smoke. Some par-
'ents who do not smoke have a babysitter who smokes. Some par-
ents who do not smoke have grandparents who smoke. These can
be sources of smoke exposure not readily recognized.
A safety check of your child's environment should include
, checking for exposure to smoke.

Time Stands Still in Gulf


U that Gulf County is very impor-
tant as a sea turtle nesting area,
S, Local interest in recording
'*'d protecting these real-life pre-
Jurassic relics has made an Im-
pressive difference. -Recognizing


that truth is stranger than fic-
tion, Port St. Joe honors the hard
work and dedication of those who
are toiling to assure that the ma-
rine turtles will continue to visit
us for the next two million years..


BY CAROL ROLLICK
Billie Jean Tuten and her as-
sistant Cathie Carroll kneel on
the sand, midwives, of a sort, for
the lively little turtles erupting
from their nest. Like popcorn,
these tiny kernels of life burst
from their two-foot deep hole
,-above the high tide line. Driven
by an instinct older than the di-
nosaurs of the Jurassic age, up
to one hundred newly-hatched
loggerhead turtles scramble for
the water's edge. Virtually un-
changed in two million years, the
turtle's headlong rush to the sea
marks the beginning of a cycle of
life that could span more than
half a century. Providing they es-
cape a myriad of predators, we
can expect to see these same tur-
tles return to our beaches in
eight to ten years to lay eggs and
begin again this ancient ritual.
'A dedicated cadre of local citi-
zens, affectionately known as
'The Turtle Patrol," are struggling
to preserve the yearly happening.
Under the auspices of Herman
Jones, his wife Pam, and assisted
by Patsy Johnson, a list of volun-
teers too long to pay tribute to
dedicate their spare time logging
and protection the sea turtle
nests. Until three years ago, tur-
tle monitoring was a more ran-
dom event. Left unnoticed, count-
less sea turtle nests each year
were subject to the scavenging of
coyote, fox, raccoons, and ghost
crabs. Yes, and even humans. An
endangered species, the sea tur-
tle is now protected. For man, it
is unlawful to disturb turtle
nests; for the predators in nature,
it is getting harder every day.
Exclusive of the State Park,
106 nests have been officially re-
corded on the coastal reach of
Gulf county this year. For months
these nests have had constant at-
tention-thanks to the dedication
of the Turtle Patrol. Additionally,
eighty-eight nests have been
counted at the St. Joseph Penin-
sula State Park. According to
Ranger Joseph Mitchell, about
twenty-six of these nests were de-
voured by coyotes.
Once spotted, the nests are
verified for eggs, marked, covered

This work often requires late

more grueling. Members of the

the nights the baby turtles are to
emerge, ,available to prevent the
little creatures from making a
wrong turn on their way to the
sea. Fighting fatigue and mosqui-
toes, the volunteers wait patiently
until one, then many hatchlings
begin their dash to the water's
edge.
Loggerhead turtles, officially
named Caretta caretta, are the
most common turtles on our
beaches, although there are re-
ports of green and leatherback
turtle nests. Loggerhead individu-
als weighing 300 lbs. are consid-
ered large, but specimens reach-
ing 1000 lbs. and 7 feet long are
recorded. Sea turtles are expert
swimmers with the unusual abili-
ty to excrete salt through the
glands around their eyes. They
feed on seaweed, mollusks, and
crustaceans. Their food is not
chewed, but bitten of with the
sharp, cutting beak and swal-
lowed. It is this fact that causes
the loggerhead to be at risk of
strangulation from plastic debris,
which they mistake for jellyfish.
All turtles lay eggs and de-
posit them on land. Egg incuba-
tion for the loggerhead is roughly
sixty days, although the Turtle
Patrol reports that the extreme
heat this summer has cut the
gestation time to about 54 days.
Heat is a factor both in the gesta-
tion time and in the sex determi-
nation of the turtle. Eggs laid in
the higher, warmer reaches of the
dunes produce more females,
while eggs hatched from .cooler
Heat is a factor both in the gesta-
tion time and In the sex determi-
nation of the turtle. Eggs laid in
the higher, warmer reaches of the
dunes produce more females,
while eggs hatched from cooler
nests closer to the shore produce
more males. Marine turtles lay
the largest eggs of all turtle spe-
cies. Leathery and tough, the
eggs can be up to 2.5 inches in
diameter. Over the years, turtles
have been heavily sought after by
man. Turtles and theireggs have
been hunted as a food source.
Like so many of our endangered
species, -the-" intense pressure
from humans and the loss of hab-
itat has put this creature in grave
danger.

Juvenile
Bunions
A bunion can occur in
youngsters as well as adults.
This is an enlargement of the
big toe joint which creates a
large bump on the side of the
toe. The enlarged joint turns
the big toe progressively to-
ward the other toes, crowd-
ing them. Aside from its ab-
normal appearance, a bunion
can be painful, making walk-
ing difficult, and if it pro-
gresses can cause further de-
formities.
Juvenile bunions usually
become a noticeable problem
between ages 11 and 14,
more so among girls than
boys. Often, but not always,
heredity underlies the foot
conditions that create a bun-
ion. Shoe modifications and
other methods may tempo-
rarily relieve bunion symp-
-fbtn, ;-btt surgery I lthe'honly
-way to correct the bunion
and associated foot condi-
tions.
Bunion surgery is one of
the most frequent podiatric
procedures. The timing varies
for juvenile bunions; sooner
if the condition is progress-
ing, later if it is not

Some crucial penalties inside
the 10-yard line cost the Gators a
hard fought game with Greensbo-
ro last Friday night, losing a close
13-9 game. This leaves the Gators
winless so far in the season.
The game was almost a re-
play of last week's contest with
Bronson, when the Gators played
their hearts out, only to drop the
lead in the second half.
There was no scoring in the
first stanza of the game, with
both teams sparring for an open-
ing. Finally, in the second quar-
ter, things started to happen. Al-
len Roberts broke loose on a 28-
yard scoring jaunt to put the first
score of the evening on the board.
Earnest Myers' kick for the extra
point was good and the Gators
had a 7-0 lead.
The Gator lead held up until
23 seconds before the half-time
intermission. With the clock run-
ning down, Gilcreese dropped
back to pass, but finding his re-

point and the two teams went
into their locker rooms with a 7-7
tie.
McMillan put Greensboro on
the scoreboard a second time in
the third period, to take a 6-point
lead, as he plunged over the goal
line from two yards out. The kick
for the extra point failed, but
Greensboro was. in the lead to
stay.
Later in the third period, the
Gators' hopes were boosted as
Tranum McLemore tackled a
Greensboro runner in the end
zone for a 2-point safety. But,
those penalties inside the 10 were
to haunt the Gators the remain-
der of the game, costing them a

13-9 InDistrict Game


In a game delayed an hour by
a lightning storm, the Sharks
were slightly subdued in their
performance against the Bonifay
Blue Devils last Friday night. The
team couldn't seem to work up
the intensity it did against Chi-
pley the week prior, but they still
defeated the Blue Devils, for their
second win of the season.
Eric Monteiro made the dif-
ference, as he drilled a mighty
field goal effort far across the goal
line from 28 yards out to put the
Sharks ahead 10-7, in what was
an otherwise even contest.
SHARKS SCORE FIRST
The Sharks appeared as if
they were going to make a rout of
the game, taking the opening
kick-off 64 yards on six plays in
the opening seconds of the game
for the first TD of the evening.
Antwione Allen, the Shark work-
horse on the ground all night,
took the first play up the middle
for five yards. Mike Thomas
hauled in a Bryan Butts pass .for
15 yards. Another pass for 19
yards to Desmond Baxter put the
Sharks on the Bonifay 30. Allen
picked his way for another 11
yards, then snagged a Butts' pass
for the TD on the next play from
scrimmage.
Monteiro kicked the extra
point, to put his team in the lead,
7-0.
fThe game see-sawed back
and forth for the remainder of the
quarter and up to 4:30 in the sec-
ond stanza before Bonifay quar-
terback Trey Howell nailed Tony
Staten with a 15-yard strike to
even the score for Bonifay.

PULL GAME OUT
Both teams high-lighted their
defense for the remainder of the
first half and all through the third
period before the tempo was
stepped up as the contest was
drawing to a close on a 7-7 tie. A
couple of times during this peri-
od, the Devils had the Sharks
starting from their own one-foot
line, but they couldn't overcome
the stout Shark line for an advan-
tage.
Finally, when the Sharks
took over the ball about a third of
the way through the last period,
the team began to move. It also
began to collect penalties. Joe
Price intercepted a Howell pass
on the Shark 48 and rambled
back to the Blue Devil 17 before
he was brought down and a
Shark called for an illegal block.
This play brought the play back
to mid-field, with a first down,
Sharks. An illegal shift cost the
and 15 on the Bonifay 45. Jed
Taylor intercepted a Butts pass,
and the Blue Devils were in busi-
ness on the Shark 42. But the
very next play had Jamaail Fenn
picking off another Howell pass to
get the ball back for the Sharks
on the Blue Devil 39.
Josh Colbert hauled in a pass
which covered 17 of those 39
yards. Ninamdi Frazier bulled his
way for 11 more. Then Butts was
caught for a three yard loss, Bax-
ter picked up three yards on the
ground, a dropped pass and Mon-
teiro was called on to do his thing
from 28 yards out.
He did! The Sharks won by a
10-7 score

Any denture wearer worries
about going in public without them
due to damage or loss. This isun-
derstandable-but preventable. If
you wear dentures and care about
your ability to eat or appearance in
public, it makes a lot of sense to al-
ways have a spare set handy just in
case your number one set breaks
or is damaged (or lost in the lake or
ocean while swimming) Your den-
tist can have an exact duplicate of
your present denture made in a
short amount of time and at a very
reasonable cost. (Probably for less
than half of what your original set
cost.)
You can take it with you when
you travel (just like it makes sense


to carry an extra pair of glasses)
and carry it conveniently in a small
container in your attache case,
pocketbook, or keep it wherever
your imagination dictates. It will
also come in handy if your original
denture needs repair.
Just think about this: If you
have a spare denture, you might
not miss a dinner with your dentist.
That's a reward-especially if your
dentist is paying for dinner.

The time has come to reas-
sess the role of the older worker
in the labor force. Wise employers
are realizing that these individu-
als can no longer be regarded as
expendable.
Recently, the Florida Panhan-
dle Private Industry Council, ad-
ministering federal Job Training
partnership Act (JTPA) funds,
was awarded a grant from the
Florida Department of Elder Af-
fairs to spearhead an Older Work-
ers Program. The PIC works with
prospective employers to effective-
ly integrate older workers into the
labor force.
Increasing numbers of senior
citizens are finding that continu-
ing in the work force is an eco-
nomic necessity. Rising expenses
and inflation have made retiring


comfortably on social ,security
and a pension less of a reality.
Contrary to myth, research' indi-
cates that older workers typi ally
have remarkably stable work eth-
ics, take pride in their work, ,and
have learned not to take 'rany
things for granted. These qualil-
ties are not only reflected in the
productivity of the more expert *
enced worker, but also in the;In,'
dividuals; characteristic reliability
and conscientious work habit.,
Research also' shows 'that
workers who are 55 years of 'age
and older, actually have lower
records of absenteeism than most
other age groups.
Older workers previously but
of the work force may need to< up-
date their, skills. Employment

In fact, poor lighting is the most

Horticulturist,,- Dr. Robert J.

The light requirements of var-
ious species of plants vary' drasti-
cally. The variables of light inten-
sity. quality, and duration affect
different plants in differing ways.
All three factors must be consid-
ered when determining appropri-
ate light conditions for specific
types of house plants.


Light intensity refers to the
brightness of the area where the
plant is placed. Generally, a low
light condition occurs about eight
feet rom a window where a plant
receives no direct light. A medium
light condition occurs in a well-lit
room, where a plant is between
four and eight feet from a win-
dow. High light areas of a home
are the brightly lit places within
three feet of any south east, or
west window.
Most indoor plants need at
least medium light. And many re-
quire high light conditions to look
their best. A few plants will do
well in low light areas. These in-

clude any of the native tropical
plants which will actually "sun-
burn" if they're exposed to high
light Intensities.
Light quality involves wave-
lengths, or the color of light a
plant receives. Plants can use
natural light from the sun, or ar-
tificial light from fluorescent, in-
candescent, or special "growlight"
bulbs. Although sunlight is the
best source of light for plants, ar-
tificial light can be used very suc-
cessfully to meet the needs of
plants grown Indoors. Plants use
1| two wavelengths, or colors, of
light for growth-red and blue.
Fluorescent tubes give off blue


enough natural light, artificial
light sources can provide the ad-
ditional Ught necessary 'for the
plant's best growth. It's difficult
to provide Indoor light intensities
as high as those under which a
plant would grow best naturally.
But, it is possible to compensate
for this by increasing the light
duration-by exposing a plant to
artificial light for longer periods of
tine.
In summary... most plants are
very light sensitive. They do best
when they're given exactly the
right amount, intensity, and type
of light they need. Definite light
requirements have been estab-
lished for a wide variety of plants.

Itwas close,, but Greensboro held on to win 13-9 Friday night.
It was a good effort by the Gators, but critical errors at critical
times still hinder our progress.
Friday night .the Sneads Pirates came to town for a 7:30 p.m.
game. Coached by one of my former assistant coaches, J. R. Gorte-
moller, the Pfrates are off to a good start and will be ready for us.
since they scouted our game against Greensboro. Plan to be there.
Thursday night the JV football team will be in Sneads for a 6
p.m. CT contest, attempting to increase our record to 2-1 with a
win.
Also Thursday, the girls' volleyball team heads to Altha for a
3:30 match, after hosting Port St. Joe Tuesday at 3 p.m.
Cross country Coach Jay Bidwell went "under the knife" Mon-
day but swears he'll be at work and practice Tuesday. We'll see if
"play with pain" applies to coaches as well.
The "new" discipline code has burned a few students already.
Hopefully, those who run afoul of it early will serve to help others
stay out of trouble. Parents and students need to revisit the materi-
al that was sent home earlier in the school year.
One type of problem still continues to be a headache for us. Of-
ten students have conflicts over the weekend and then bring the
problem to school with them Monday morning. Parents, you need to
be aware of what your children are doing. Talk with them, set some
boundaries and time guidelines, and insist that they honor your
limits. It is difficult to-believe some of the escapades that students
claim go on-but often the stories turn out to be accurate, and we
spend hours trying to settle some conflict peacefully to keep from
having further problems.
