,St. Joe Natural Gas Company
of Port St. Joe initiated natural
gas service in the community,
Tuesday. by turning on a new
distribution complex and started
taking applications from the 150
potential customers in the area
for piping laterals to serve their
homes.
St. Joe Natural Gas president
Stuart Shoaf and system manag-
er Tom Knox were present at the
compressor station, along with
County Commissioner Michael
Hammond, who ceremonially
turned the system on Tuesday.
Shoaf told The Star the sys-.

"ready to go" as far as serving
customers is concerned. "Actual-
ly, we already have about 16 cus-
tomers on line and receiving nat-

station, to turn on the community's natural gas supply.
Standing by in case Michael turns the wrong valve are St.
Joe Natural Gas Company president Stuart Shoaf and gen-

City ConS
The Port St. Joe City Com-
mission took initial steps Tuesday
night, to establish a Traililse Tee
! for the remaining utilities operat-
ing fn the City which are not now
covered by the exclusive service
provision fee now paid by Florida
Power Corporation and Gulf
Cable TV.
The franchise fee is tentative-
ly being levied against St. Joe
Natural Gas Company and St. Jo-
seph Telephone and Telegraph
Company. The franchise fee is
usually applied to a utility which
uses city rights-of-way to place
their pipelines, wires, poles and
other means of getting their pi-od-
uct to the public.
PUBLIC HEARING SET
At their meeting Tuesday
night, the Commission set a pub-
lic hearing on the matter for No-
vember 2, at 8:00 p.m., to hear
any input to the intent, pro or
con.
The City Commission is
unanimous in favoring the fran-
chise fee to offset the need for ad
valorem taxes. At the meeting
Tuesday, all expressed them-
selves as looking favorably at the
fee and its application to the oth-
er two utilities operating inside
the City.
It was reported at the meet-
ing that the gas company was op-
posed, to the franchise fee, but
that the telephone company had
not expressed any opposition nor
* approval.
The rate for the new fran-
chise fee would be six percent,

Who Pays?

WE'RE WONDERING WHO WILL get the clean-up bill on the
recent Mississippi River floods which devastated the central por-
tion of the United States for much of the summer. Not only did it
do vast damage the first time it came over its banks, but the Riv-
er .has been back in the news again recently. It's flooding the
flood-devastated region again!
The people of the northern states bordering the River have
received more than their share of destruction and grief; enough
to last them for many years.
Here in Florida, we must construct our permanent struc-
tures with the worst disaster we have experienced in 100 years
given consideration. The buildings must be of such nature as to
withstand hurricane winds. They must be built with the floor
level high enough to keep them above floods. Even so, they
wouldn't have been built high enough to withstand the rise of
the Mississippi River.
BUT, WHAT WE WOULD like to know is, who is the Depart-
.ment of Environmental Regulation going to fine for polluting the
Gulf of Mexico? Didn't the people of Duluth, St. Paul, St. Louis,
-'Dubuque and other flooded cities have their little holding ponds
'to catch that run-off water in? We must have them here. Didn't
anyone try to construct their drainage system so the run-off wa-
ter wouldn't end up in the Gulf of Mexico and "pollute" that body
of water? If not; why not?
An article in the Tallahassee Democrat about a week or 10
days ago told the "horror" story of the floods "fouling" the Gulf
.Stream.
It seems scientists have discovered a stream of fresh water,
'in the Gulf, flowing around the tip of Florida into the Atlantic
Ocean.
"That water was a dramatic change in the chemistry and the
biology off the South Florida coast," the article said.
A CHANGE IN chemistry! That's the stuff pollution is made
of, according the EPA and the Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection. Somebody should pay! But who?
The environmental people are missing an opportunity to
feather their nests here.
The article continues with, ""It may start to grow organisms
you don't want to see such as red tides, which can cause fish
kills and produces toxins that get into the food chain and into
shellfish." But, get this: "This will all return to normal. This is a
temporary state," the scientists said.
The flood waters carried nothing they wouldn't pick up run-
ning off the streets of Port St. Joe, or Apalachicola, or even New
York City. Won't the receiving point of that drain water also "re-
turn to normal" after a short while?



A Problem

WE HAVE A PROBLEM on Reid Avenue in Port St. Joe
which no longer can be ignored with the thought that maybe
somebody will do something about it. Possibly something will be
done, but the fact is, it needs to be done now.
We're talking .about the old Port Theatre building and its di-
lapidaed' condition. It is becoming dangerous to passers-by oni
the sidewalk and measures should be taken to protect the public
from this danger before someone is injured, not after they are in-
jured.
A couple of weeks ago, a large chunk of plaster fell from the
entrance ceiling of the building and crashed to the sidewalk. It's
just fortunate nobody was under the slab when it fell. You see,
the Port Theatre was built when plaster was lavishly put on met-
al mesh to form a ceiling; not a thin coat spread on sheet rock.
The piece which fell weighed a substantial amount and would
have done considerable damage to someone's cranium had it hit
a person. The owners would have had a hefty lawsuit on their
hands.
WE UNDERSTAND THE old building isn't the most desirable
rental property. Not many people want to operate a business out
of a building with a slant to the floor and 25-foot-high ceilings. It
would be cost non-productive to spend money on the building.
But we think it would be cost-saving to at least board the build-
ing up to prevent anyone getting inside, or loitering in the vesti-
bule just off the sidewalk.
The building is sturdy. It was made so because that was the
only style builders in the 1930's knew to make them. It is no
longer sturdy in places. Things are in danger of falling. As we
said, some things have already fallen.
The City Commission should have required that it be made
safe long ago. Maybe they will soon.

over at her Golden Coiffure's

tended) in 1963.
We'd sit over at the tractor
place with a NuGrape and watch
'em run through. Those girls
would go In with the slicked-
down wet look and come out with
hair plum out to here! I'd never
seen nothing like it! Charlotte

Gene jumped back, "It's Little Or-
phan Annie, with eyes!"
"Birds will be nesting in that
thing."
LaRenda Bradfield couldn't
get in the car. Her mother had to
tie her on top.
Maxine was an all-purpose
beautician. I can still remember
her advertisement in the local

I tell you, those senior girls
were flocking to Maxine's with
high hopes. My dad always got a
chuckle out of the disclaimer and
the announcement at the bottom
of each Golden Coiffure ad, "I
can't do nothing about your
weight" and "Tattoos in the back
room-after five."
Folks, there's nothing quite
like Homecoming Week. We'd
marvel at the transformation tak-
ing place at Maxine's. You could
kinda' tell which ones Rose had
done.
'They're running 'em through
like Mr. McCaleb does those cows
at the Tri-County Stockyard auc-
tion every Wednesday afternoon."
Buddy spoke as the wind caught
Maudie Mallard and lifted her off
the ground.
'Yeah," Ricky Gene paused as
Maudie grabbed the lamp post,
"and I think the cows come out
looking much better."
Another way you could tell it
was Homecoming Week was the
look on Coach Scott's face. Lis-
ten, the man hated all Homecom-
ings. 'You get your mind on those
floats, men, and the game is lost.
You understand! And men, we
don't care who the Homecoming
Queen is. That's all a bunch of
gooblygock. All we care about is
the Huntingdon High Mustangsl
Right, men?" We didn't say any-
thing, 'cause he never waited for
an answer. "This whole Home-
coming thing was dreamed up by
Maxine and the Huntingdon High
Mustangs. Are we going to be dis-
tracted by all the gooblygock? Are
we going to let Huntingdon come
to our field and take what be-
loiings to us?" Coach Scott was red
in the face now, ahbdyellifg. -You ,
stay away from. the floats, you
stay away from the dance, you
stay away from the Dairy Bar-
you get ready to jump on some
horses ."
Coach wasn't giving this
talk at football practice; he'd
caught a few of us in the hall
before school ....
If you hadn't been by Max-
ine's or seen Coach Scott, you'd
still know what week it was by
observing the senior girls at
lunch. They'd be circulating
through the seventh and eighth
grade tables, just saying hello.
Shoot, one year in junior high,
Diane Stoner carried my books to
class for the whole week. Well,
she toted 'em until Thursday at
lunch. Back in those days, we
voted for the queen during the
last five minutes of third period-
on Thursday.
And, of course, people were
working on floats all over town.

wouldn't fit anywhere else. Not
only is it the most "fall" of the fall
months, but it is the beginning of
a. respite from the doldrums of
snnmmer.
> October is the host to many,
many good things of life. Every
time one turns around, there is a
different activity which spurs
their actions and piques their in-
terest.
From the "Fall Classic" of
baseball to the gaggle of fall festi-
vals which permeate the air and
fill the stomach with fine things
to eat. It is the month of the
pumpkin, the persimmon and the
peanut. It is the month of the Oc-
toberfests, the leaves turning all
different colors and the height of
the football season.
Who could ask for anything
more?
HAVE YOU EVER been to the
mountains in late October? Well,


if you haven't, you have missed a
treat for the tired old eyes. There
is color everywhere, from brilliant
reds to bright oranges and yel-
lows. Naturally, there are a few
browns thrown in for good meas-
ure.
If it has not turned off cool,
such as it did this past week end,
you are also greeted with a fair
share of greens and all shades in
between green and red-orange-
yellow.
If you get a chance to go to

in north Georgia, like I do, get
him to drive, like I do. That's the
only way you will get to enjoy the
full color of the mountainsides.
The people who live up there
all come to Florida. About a doz-
en of them show up at the Port
St. Joe Rotary Club meeting every
year.
This October offers something
else which should prove to be in-
teresting. The folks at Westville,
the 1850 town near Lumpkin,
Georgia is having a demonstra-
tion of cotton ginning, syrup
making, soap, and candle making
and all the crafts of the old pio-

THEN, OCTOBER IS the
month in which the World Series
is played. That alone is enough
reason to have October as the
10th month of the year.
As of this writing the Atlanta
"Braves" have taken a dive and
lost two games in three days. If
they keep that up, the Braves
won't be in the Fall Classic. There
will be a World Series played,
though, whether Atlanta makes it
or not. And, if there is a World
Series played, there will be a
month of October to play it in.
I took a one night trip to At-
lanta a couple of weeks ago, in
hot September, to see to -the
team. It was the last game of the
Cincinnati series. You know, the
12 inning game. The Braves were
regularly pulling games out in the
late innings about that time of
the season, and they won that


But that's another reason for
having the end of the season in
October; to make it easier for a
fan or player to keep his cool.

HUNTERS BEGIN TO smell
gunpowder in October. Men with
otherwise good sense, shell out
large amounts of cash to pay for
property hunting rights leases,
preparing their site, polishing
guns, looking over their favorite
hunting grounds to see "how they.
look this year" and telling tales of
last season.
October is the month in
which they dream, plan, antici-
pate the season to come and the
thrill of bringing down their game
. and the opportunity to clean
it!
I've gone through that phase
before. When I was younger, I
was up at 4:00 a.m., rushing

landing the day-or two days-
before to rent a boat, just to be
sure I would have one.
Now, I have sense enough to
stay in that warm bed until it's
time to get up! None of that mid-
dle-of-the-night stuff for me.
OF COURSE, OCTOBER is
also one of the better months for
football. It's not too hot, nor is it
too cold to attend the games in
October. In the case of a college
game; all one has to do is to grit
his teeth and determine to deal
with the crowd and the traffic.
October is no Super Bowl, or
bowl game, or national champion-
ship season. It's just a month to
enjoy!
I know this won't mean much
to most of you, but it's of a mod-
est bit of importance to me. Octo-
ber is also the month in which
four of my children were born.
Truly a vintage month!

Tommy Hudson's Watch
Back many years ago, when I was in high school and during my
early college years, Tommy Hudson and I were very close friends.
We are still friends today, but Tommy lives in Jackson, Mississippi,
and I don't see him too often. Our friendship may come to an end if
Tommy ever reads this article.
The episode I'm about to reveal happened during my early and
mid-college years at Hinds Junior College and the University of
Southern Mississippi. Tommy and I attended Tate High School in
Pensacola and Hinds Jr. College, but Tommy was a year behind me.
Tommy and I were cut from the same cloth. We were both fortu-
nate to win football scholarships because our families couldn't af-
ford t6 send us to college. We had very little money for clothes and
such and that was before the days when college football players be-
came rich playing football.
Necessity is the mother of invention, so Tommy and I devised a
plan that would benefit both of us.We both worked during the sum-
mers and bought clothes that were compatible for each other. Dur-
ing my sophomore year and his freshman year at Hinds, we would
exchange clothes and other personal items. Admittedly, Tommy had
to buy some items a size larger (except for socks), but the plan
worked. Sometimes, however, someone would say, "Hey, that's a
nice shirt. Tommy Hudson has one just like it."
This arrangement worked fine until I left for Southern. Then the
exchange became somewhat more difficult because of our proximi-
ty; Tommy living in Raymond, and me living in Hattiesburg.
But, great minds can work wonders. When Tommy would go
home (to Pensacola), lie would stop by Hattiesburg and we would.
exchange different items. In his next trip or when we were home to-
gether, we would change again, so every month or so we could ex-
change different items and have a variety in our dress. The plan
worked very well for a year or so.
There was one thing I always wanted but could never afford. I
wanted a good wrist watch. Tommy Hudson had one and I didn't. It
was an Elgih watch, and it was silver and had only three numbers
on it. There was a twelve, a three, and a number nine. There was a
second hand where the number six should have been. That was be-
fore the days of the battery-operated watches like we have today,
and his watch had to be "wound up" each day or it would run down
and stop. I think that's where the term "stop watch" came from, but
I'm not certain.
One day as Tommy and I were exchanging clothes and some
Old Spice for some English Leather, I offered Tommy two extra pairs
of white socks if he would let me wear his watch until our next ex-
change. Tommy was a fool about white socks, and the athletic de-
partment at Southern had an abundant supply.
Well, to'make'a long story short, Tommy 'Hudson, bless his
trusting heart, has never, seen his'Elgin watch again. When he
would come by for the exchange, I would tell him I let a friend bor-
row it- but it was hidden in my closet. Finally, I told him I lost the
watch during a fist fight at the C. Q., a local night spot in Hatties-
burg where football players went to drink beer and fight to stay in
shape during the off-season
All these years I have had a guilty feeling every time I look at
this watch. It still runs, and I am wearing it as I type this article. I
have had to have it cleaned several times and the band and crystal
replaced, but, other than those minor repairs, it has continued to
function very well. I now consider it one of my prized possessions,
but I find that I can't live with the guilt any longer.
I have come to a decision! The next lime I see Tommy Hudson,
I'm going tq give him the time of day. After all, he never re-,
turned my two pairs .of socks. r '^, _--- .".'.. !Y"'

SCHLDREN'S HEALTH FORUM


COMMON SENSE
ABOUT COMMON
COLDS,
By
,' .'. ", *.* Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

A healthy young child will usually have 7-8 colds per year. Nor-
mally, with a new cold the child will feel ill, have a runny nose, and
run a low to moderate fever for 2-3 days. After the fever subsides,
the nasal discharge thickens and may be yellow or green in color. A
cough may develop and may be most noticeable at night.
The timetable of 2-3 days for runny nose, 3-4 days for thick na-
sal mucus, and 8-10 days of coughing puts the length of the usual
cold to 2-3 weeks. If the child begins to feel better after the first few
days, there should not be too much concern about drippy nose or
cough until it persists past the 2-3 weeks allowed. If you think
about it, 2-3 weeks out of-7-8 months means that young children
always seem to have a cold.
Most of the problems with colds comes from. not being able to
breathe through a clogged up nose. This is helped a great deal with
salt water nose drops and nasal aspiration. I do not like to have
parents use the pointed rubber ear syringe for nasal suction, but
the sharp point can be cut off and the more blunt end will not in-
jure the inside of the child's nose.
In the winter when the heat is on in the house, it helps to keep
the mucus moist and moveable with a humidifier. What are some of
the complications that develop from colds? Ear infections, croup,
pneumonia, and sinusitis are the main ones. You should call your
doctor and make an appointment to have your child seen if the
child:
1. Develops an earache or a bad headache;
2. Has yellow pus discharging from the eyes;
3. Has any raw infected areas under themnose;
4. Has noticeable wheezing and a change in his normal breath-
ing pattern;
5. If after feeling fine for several days, begins to feel sick again.
You should call immediately if:.
1. Your child's temperature is over 104;
2. Your infant under two (2) months of age has a temp of 1010
or over;
3. Your child continues to have difficulty breathing after nose
has been cleared;
4. Your child is irritable and you can not comfort him or lethar-
gic and you can not awaken him.
Children will often need consistent observation in order to de-
termine if they are ill, or determine how they are progressing with
an illness. If Mother gets a child ready and takes him to a sitter or
daycare and Dad picks him up in the evening, you have numerous
people who must communicate to each other about the child's stat-
us. It is a good idea to keep a'written record as to what has gone on
with him and pass it along from one caretaker to the other.

"Because major 'changes in
the political process are unlikely
to occur by spontaneous public
action, community organizations
and institutions and interested
citizens must Join together to
identify and resolve issues that
cut across political and socio-
economic boundaries," stated
GCCC President Bob McSpadden.
The process of gaining ap-
proval of the project from the Kel-
logg Foundation took 45' months:


Clay Smallwood spoke to the
Kiwanis Club Tuesday, telling the
club.of some of the backlash from
being overzealous for endangered
species. Smallwood showed a
short video showing the effects of
such activities in the Pacific
northwest and the impact protec-
tion of the spotted owl has had on
the lumber and related industries
in that portion of the nation, with
the admonition that "It can hap-
pen here if we're not alert to the
impact such activates have on a
community."
Protecting the spotted owl in
Oregon and Washington state has
cost that region a terrible price,
economically. A narrator on the
video, a former employee of a
paper-making firm which has
now shut down, said there had
been a lumber firm and two pulp
and paper mills shut down in his
immediate location since 1990,
all to protect the spotted owl.
S"Our food stamp rolls have
jumped from under 2,000 in
1990 to 12,000 today," the narra-
tor said.
Altogether, protection for the
owl has closed down 40 indus-
tries and businesses related, to
wood use, in the region since,
1990, all because of the owl. Over
14,000 Jobs have been discontin-
ued in the two year period after
1990.
One of the narrators, from
Jessup, Georgia, said on the vid-
eo, 'The same thing can happen
in the southeast if people are not
careful." The southeast depends
heavily on wood products and
paper making as its economic
base.
One of the speakers pointed
out that all the forest products
producers in the Pacific North-
west plant as much or more than
they cut, making the raw product
self perpetuating. '"We have been
harvesting the forest and replant-
ing, much as a tomato or corn

Daves Wins Cross


Country
Last Saturday, the boys cross
country team competed in the
Bay County Invitational at Tyn-
dall Air Force Base. Quincy-
Shanks won the meet with 45
points. Port St. Joe placed second
with 48 points, Rutherford placed
third (68), Bay placed fourth (76),
and Mosley placed fifth (132). ,
Port St. Joe High Junior Ken-
ny Daves placed first among the 5
runners with a time of 17:41 for
the 3 mile course. This was Ken-
ny's first ever win in a cross
country meet.
Other members of the team
who participated in the meet
were: Lee Duren 3rd (17:52);
Steve Ailes 12th (19:17); Robbie

"Although we failed to win the
meet, we still had a good day. The
times were a little slow, but the
course was very sandy and this
slowed us down a bit. Steve Ailes,
Andy Smith, and Lance Hanson
ran well. Also, Kenny and Lee did
a great job. They are pushing
each other in practice and this is
making both of them better," stat-
ed Coach Gowan. This week's

St. Joe's Defense Wins, 13-6



The Port St. Joe High School
football team should carry anoth-
er nickname after Friday night's
game against the Apalachicola
Sharks. They should be called the
"Bees" for the swarming defense
they put on Apalachicola's ver-
sion of the Sharks. Port St. Joe
held the highly regarded team to
minus eight yards on the ground
for the entire game. In the mean-
time, the Sharks, led by Ninamdi
Frazier, were clawing and scrap-
ing for 158 hard-fought yards of
their own. Both teams could
boast of a more than formidable ,
defensive squad.
The Apalachicola team has
built a formidablei reputation dur-
ing the past few years, under the
guidance of head coach Shaw
Maddox. The team was deter-
mined to put that reputation to
the test at the hands of Maddox'
former charges.
As a result of the win last Fri-
day night, the Sharks have been
elevated in the state rankings to..,t
number 10 by selection of the
sports writers of Florida. It's the
first time the Sharks have re-
ceived state-wide rankings in
three seasons.
CLOSE THREE TIMES
BUT NO BRASS RING
Three times during the game,
the Sharks were within the 10-
yard line-twice, within the five-
and the Apalachicola 11 dug their
heels in and said, "Whoa!" .
and the Sharks whoa-ed.
Port St. Joe didn't waste any
time after the kick-off. Before the
Apalachicola team could get their
defensive game together,- the
Sharks had put six points on
their side of the scoreboard. Fra-
zier took a pitch from Bryan
Butts and rolled for 69 yards up
the sideline for a touchdown on
the Sharks' third play of the
game. Frazier was to lead all
ground-gaining on the night, with
102 yards added to his own per-
sonal record.
The Sharks went on to defeat
Apalachicola, in their resurrected
rivalry after several years' hiatus,
13-6.
PUNT PROBLEMS PAINFUL.
It was Apalachicola's difficul-
ties with the punt which handed
the Sharks four more points as
the Apalachicola punter had two
balls he couldn't handle, result-
ing in safeties for the Sharks.
The first safety came in the
first quarter as Apalachicola
punter Jason Amison had the
ball sail over his head and out of
the end zone. The second came in
the last minutes of the game, as
Nat White fielded another high
snap and stepped out of the back
of the end zone.
Port St. Joe's three additional
points came in the first period
when Des Baxter blocked an Apa-
lachicola punt attempt, giving the.
Sharks the ball on the seven yard
line. But the Apalachicola defense
held and Eric Monteiro was called
on for a field goal to put the
Sharks in the lead, 11-0, at that
point in the game.
The Apalachicola squad put
their points on the board as the
first half was winding down.
Quarterback Deon Milliner tossed
a short pass to William Cargill at
the Shark 28 yard line. Cargill
made a sensational grab of the
ball and raced 72 yards for the
TD. It was to be the only score
Apalachicola was to make.
SHARKS DEFENSE FORCE
APALACHICOLA TO FLY
With their inability to gain
any yardage on the ground the
first half, Apalachicola went to
the air in the second half, but
couldn't put enough successful
plays together to score again.


In summary, Port St. Joe's
tough defense completely shut
down half of the potent Apalachi-
cola team's offense and badly
dented the second part.
Frazier led the Sharks ground
game with his 102 yards on 18
carries. Antwione Allen was the
target of the Apalachicola defense
but still added 37 yards. Josh
Colbert surprised his opponents
on three carries, for 15 more
yards.
Bryan Butts connected on
seven of 15 passes, good for 82
big yards. Zyris Hill was his most
effective target, with one big gain-
er of 31 yards. Kendrick Addison
picked up 18 yards on two recep-
tions. Josh Colbert pulled in a
single pass, good for 14 yards,
Antwione Allen added 10 more
yards with his three receptions
and Des Baxter was 1-9.
HOMECOMING FRIDAY
Friday night will be Home-
coming for the Sharks as they
meet North Florida Christian for

Although the human body
continues to change through out
life, changes in the adult occur'
much more slowly than in the
child and are called "maturing fea-
tures". In most people, the middle,
autumn, and later years of life are'
characterized by a thinning and
sharpening of the facial contours.
During these years, the support
provided by intact teeth is critical-
ly important in maintaining a sym-
metrical and pleasing facial ap-
pearance.
The teeth, especially the front
teeth (incisors) and the eye teeth
(canines), provide direct support
to the shape of the lips, corner of
the mouth, and front part of the
cheeks. If these teeth are not re-
placed immediately, their loss can


cause or accentuate folding,
drooping, and hollowing of the fa-
cial tissues resulting in facial fea-
tures that can be unattractive and
down right unpleasant.
In the older person, loss of
the bicuspids and molars (back
teeth) accentuates the hollow con-
figuration of the cheeks and deep-
ens the natural lines and wrinkles.
You only have one face. Don't let
negligence keep it from looking as
young as you are for life. Replace
any missing teeth now!

Prepared as a public ser-
vice to promote better dental
health. From the office of

Smallwood Warns Kiwanis


About Pending Legislation


Clay Smallwood spoke to the
Kiwanis Club Tuesday, telling the
club of some of the backlash from
being overzealous for endangered
species. Smallwood showed a
short video showing the effects of
such activities in the Pacific
northwest and the impact protec-
tion of the spotted owl has had on
the lumber and related industries
in that portion of the nation, with
the admonition that "It can hap-
pen here if we're not alert to the
impact such activities have on a
community."
Protecting the spotted owl in
Oregon and Washington state has
cost that region a terrible price,
economically. A narrator on the
video, a former employee of a
paper-making, firm which has
now shut down, said there had
been a lumber firm and two pulp
and paper mills shut down in his
immediate location since 1990,
all to protect the spotted owl.
"Our food stamp rolls have
jumped. from under 2,000 in
1990-to 12,000 today," the narra-
tor said.
Altogether, protection for the
owl has closed down 40 indus-
tries and businesses related to
wood use, in the region since
1990, all because of the owl. Over
14,000 Jobs have been discontin-
ued in the two year period after
1990.
One of the narrators, from
Jessup, Georgia, said on the vid-
eo, '"The same thing can happen
in the southeast if people are not

careful." The southeast depends
heavily on wood products and
paper making as its economic
base.
One of the speakers pointed
out that all the forest products
producers in the Pacific North-
west plant as much or more than
they cut, making the raw product
self perpetuating. '"We have been
harvesting the forest and replant-
ing, much as a tomato or corn

Smallwood said the same
thing has happened to wood
products manufacturers here in
the Panhandle and people should
become familiar with the pending

uled to go before Congress early

said.

Six Students Are


Students of Month


By Caroline Lister
Outstanding students were
acknowledged as the first Stu-
dents of the Month for the year
were chosen. The honored few
were seventh grader Julia Six.
eighth ,.grader Kim Lamberson,
ninth grader Lacheryl Garland,
tenth grader Leslie Faison, elev-
enth grader Chris Buchanan, and
twelfth grader Clay Cox. These
students show not only academic
achievement, but also character
and enthusiasm.
The entire concert choir defi-
nitely has enthusiasm, and one
member has lots of character. As
the choir sang "Go Granny Go",
one of the may tunes sung by
them at the St. Joseph Bay Arts
and Crafts Festival, a flying gran-
ny on rollerblades, Kristian Rich-
bourg, got the crowd rolling with
laughter. The Port St. Joe High
School alumni band dusted off
their instruments and got every-
body to hum along with every-
thing from the fight song to patri-
otic tunes. Their bones may creak
a little, but not one creak was
heard out of their instruments.
Other groups participating in the
festival were the Key Club, which
helped with the Friends of the Li-
brary book sale, and the Keyettes,

Many Tropical and Subtropical Bulbs Will Thrive Here
I AI--J ---- ". + bt


As the saying goes, we have
some good news and some bad
news on bulbs for. Florida-many
flowering bulbs that are popular
with our Northern neighbors do
not grow well in our mild, climate.
These include Tulips, Hyacinths,
and some of the Irises and Lilies.
That's the bad news; the good
news is that many tropical and
subtropical bulbs will thrive here.
Plants such as Crinums, Easter
Lilies, Gladiolus, and Amaryllis.
'In this article, I'll talk about
planting and caring for flowering
bulbs in the Florida landscape.
My information was provided by
Extension Urban Horticulture Dr.
Robert Black.
Actually, as we loosely use
the term, the work bulb refers to
plants with specials underground
food storage organs. These plants
may have true bulbs, corms, tu-
bers, or rhizomes. Master garden-
ers and nursery men call all of
them bulbs.
Bulbs will tolerate varying sol
conditions, but most will grow
and flower best when they are
planted in a well-drained soil,
rich in organic matter. You'll be

giving your bulbs a head start if
you plant them in well-prepared
flower beds.
Enrich the soil with a good
measure of a 8-8-8 or 10-10-10
analysis fertilizer. Apply about
two or three pounds per 100
square feet of bed. At the same
time, you should treat the soil to
prevent insect and disease prob-
lems. That is, apply pesticides
prior to planting. The product la-
bel should tell you how long to
wait before setting your bulbs.
For specific control practices,
check with your garden center or
County Extension Office.
Water is probably the most


important consideration in grow-
ing bulbs. Keep the soil moist at
all times. As long as your soil
drains well, but not too rapidly, a
good soaking every four to eight
days is enough. Toward the end
of the growing period, let up on
the amount ,of water you give
your plants.
Most bulbs like direct sun-
light, and will flower best when
they are in the sun most of the
day. Light, afternoon shadows are
desirable. Avoid heavy shade, be-
cause it will cause thin, spindly
growth and reduce flowering.
One aspect of growing flower-
ing bulbs in Florida probably

The K.I.D.S. Instructional
Day Service has been busy
learning about community help-,

several of our community ser-
vants.
Police Officers James Her-

showed the children their car
and some of the equipment nec-
essary to be a police officer. Joe
Badger came with Firefighter
Larry Edge to show off the fire
truck and to allow the children
to become a little more familiar
with the truck and fire safety.

tend a big thanks to all of these
men who help to make their lit-

causes more confusion than an
other. That's deciding whether to
dig them up for storage after the
blooming season. Some of the
bulbs we grow here are evergreen.
You can leave these in the
ground, year after year, if they're
protected from frost in the winter.
Others die down each year. Some
of these also can be left in the
ground, undisturbed. Others are
subject to rotting and won't sur-
vive unless they are dug and
stored.
As I said, this can cause
some confusion. So, instead of
trying to give some workable
rules on when to dig or when not
to dig bulbs, we really must sug-
gest that you check with your
garden center of County Exten-
sion Office for advise on what to
do with the particular kinds of
bulbs you're growing.
In summary, I'll remind you
that while many bulbs that are
popular in northern states will
not do well here, we still have a
wide variety of such plants from
which to choose. Bulbs need rich,
fertile, well-drained soils, ade-

Student of the Week is
Daryl Knee
Joyce Quinn chose Daryl
Knee as the student of the week.
Daryl is six years old and in the
first grade, where his favorite
subject is math. He would like to
be a fireman when he grows up
because he likes to help people.
Daryl's favorite TV show is The
Maniacs. After school, he likes to
play with crash dummies When
asked what he would have if he
could have one wish, Daryl said
he "would give everybody that is
poor some money." Daryl claims
his mother as an important per-.
son in his life. So did Abe Lin-
coln, Daryl.

Doris Mincy, Chairperson for
the St Jude Children's Research

Ms. Ada Goes to the Windy City
Our custodian, Ada Dozier,
recently had a holiday with some
of her children. First she stopped


off in Louisville to visit her son
Nate and then spent the rest of
her time with her five sons and
daughters in Chicago. This was
her son Renny's seventh year
pastoring his church there. Ms.
Ada was glad to return but en-
joyed her visit to the Windy City.
Leaf Fever
A special treat for me was re-
turning to the mountains, where I
am from, over the past weekend. I
enjoyed seeing the Amish com-
munity make sorghum and bake
homemade bread and the musical
play, Christie, based on the best
seller of Catherine Marshall. Of
course, Gatlinburg is always on
the agenda, but the best part of it
was just being home.

Haven and Callaway. They even
brought their own toy truck!

Juniors (and seniors who have not already passed it) will tackle
the all-important High School Competency Test October 13 & 14.
This is a must pass in order to graduate. Also, October 12, some
students will be taking the PSAT, a practice test for the SAT. du-
Pont Scholarship points are awarded for taking some of these tests,
so interested students need to keep in touch with school counselors
about dates and times.
If it is free, and you get out of class, how can you go wrong? Oc-
tober 28, the U. S. Navy's "Country Current" band will be at WHS
for an hour+ show. This band of talented musicians plays popular
county, blue grass, and traditional country music at high schools
all over the country. The Eleeftinary School will be our guests, and
th bpli inrMlted tojtta. (nb citarge):-The shoWVs-prsently

The annual St. Jude's Bike-A-Thon is scheduled for Saturday
am at the WHS track. Doris Mincy is hosting the fundraiser this
year. Contact the WES office for details, Help out if you can. It's a
good cause!
Honesty is sometimes hard to find these days, but we do have
some. A WHS student, Eva Stroman, found. some money while at a.
hotel in Miami this summer and turned it in. Honesty is the best
policy-she was notified at school recently that the money had not
been claimed and would be sent to her as a reward! Her actions
were worth a lot to Wewahitchka High School!!
Welcome to Cindy Mixon as she joins the WHS staff as a part-
time ESE instructor. A Seminole graduate, Ms. Mixon will function
as an "as needed" instructor for Special ESE situations.
Varsity football resumes after an open week as the Gators host
the Robert F. Munroe Bobcats, one of the better 1-A teams in the
area. Part of re-building is trying to instill in young men the pride
that keeps them going, trying to improve, while things are tough.
Not every player can handle losing, and as a result, sometimes
these players take themselves out of the program. While there
might be a temporary problem, usually the rest rally together and
become stronger as a result. This is a normal (if not desirable) part
of any rebuilding program. Stay behind the team-it's the team ef-
fort that needs and deserves your support.

Agriculture Census


,Affects Decisions on


Extension Programs


If all farmers and ranchers
are not counted in the Census of
Agriculture, decisions on farm
programs, agriculture trade, ex-
tension programs, and others will
suffer. In the long run every farm-
er.aand rancher will be affected.
The data from the Census of
'Agriculture are essential in allo-
cating billions in agriculture
funds every year:
*The distribution of exten-
sion program funds depends on
the census.
The number of acres of
cropland that can be put into the
conservation reserve program in
your county is based on the cen-
sus.
*Funds for farm disaster re-
lief are tied to data from the cen-
sus.
Farm .loan money available
to states and counties depend on
i the numbers of the census.
These are but a few examples
of why an undercount in the Cen-
sus of Agriculture could be detri-
; mental to every farmer and
rancher in this country.
O In addition, the government's
negotiators on agriculture com-
modity trade rely heavily on the
i census data. If the information is
o; understated, then American pro-
- ducers may not get the best bene-
fits possible from current trade
negotiations.
According to George Pierce,
0 Assistant Chief of the Census Bu-

Hunter Courses

In Altha, Bristol


reau's Agriculture Division, "More
than 75 percent of America's
farmers and ranchers have com-
pleted and returned their Census
of Agriculture report. Others have
requested time extensions until
they complete their tax returns,
but there are still quite a few that
we haven't heard from. Response
in some states and counties is
better than others." What does
this mean? Those states and
counties with the greatest under-
count may not receive their share
of the agriculture programs,
funding, trade considerations, ed-
ucational funds, and considera-
tion in Congress.
Pierce said, 'What we also
think has happened is that a lot
of people who are no longer ac-
tively farming pitched their forms
in the trash. That's human na-
ture. But we need to know who's
not farming by sending the form
back indicating their situation.
Meanwhile, the slow returns from
non-farmers and ranchers who
haven't mailed back their forms
keeps the returns below the level
we need to publish complete and
accurate data."
If someone needs help on
questions or who should report or
needs another form, call toll free
at 1-800-233-6132. By complet-
ing and returning their 1992 Cen-
sus of Agriculture forms they help
"Make it Known...America Counts
on Agriculture."
