The Tax Collector observed. "We will collect most of

IT APPEARS AS IF the court system of our nation is becom-
ing the laughing stock of the criminal world, so far as dispensing
justice is concerned. The most recent decision from California
appears as if they are now intent on dispensing mercy rather
than justice. Both the celebrated cases, resulting in verdicts
which were unacceptable to the rank and file of the people of
this nation indicates the courts in California aren't reflecting the
verdict of the accused's peers. The peers of the accused in both
cases, think they should they should have received stiffer pun-
ishment than they did for their unconscionable acts.
The latest travesty of justice was the Denny trial with the ver-
dict handed down just last week which decided the two accused
men were were to receive a token slap on the wrist. A similar
case which had drawn nation-wide disgust was the handling of
the Rodney King beating episode.
EYE WITNESSES SHOULD be the best possible kind of
proof.. Both cases were witnessed by the nation via videotape
copies of their acts. Both had the best witnesses one could have
that a crime had been committed and pictures made of the one/
ones committing the crime. In our mind both groups were at
least guilty of assault with a deadly weapon. Both groups should
have been convicted or both should have been acquitted. In
these cases, both sets of defendants should have been convicted
and proper penalties applied.
The only ones who had any figment of.an argument in favor
of their innocence were the policemen who said they were trying
to subdue a belligerent Rodney King. Still, one would have a
hard time convincing us that four or five husky, trained police-
men would have any problem subduing one man, no matter who
he happened to be; even Sylvester Stallone's character of
THE REAL VICTIM of both cases and their eventual ver-
dicts, were the courts and their credibility. A similar question
was broached in regard to Rosemary Barkett in her return to the
Supreme Court of Florida. She made it there in spite of a consid-
erable questioning of her credibility and now she has been nomi-
nated to .the U.S. Court of Appeals in spite of that questioning.
With the help of the California courts we have effectively sent
out a message to hoodlums of whatever stripe: "Do what you
want; savagely assault innocent by-standers as much as you
lease; tromp on people's rights as much as you will; destroy all
%e private property you want and loot to your heart's content.
-ou are safe from reprisal by the courts of the land."
In our opinion, .however, a person should not be able to beat
another into a senseless hulk with a police baton or a brick with
a million witnesses looking on and be able to get away with it.
Be Proud, Folks!
THE PEOPLE OF Port St. Joe can be genuinely proud of the
letter received from Randy Ray, president of North Florida Chris-
tian School last week. Since we have already played the football
game, we'll go ahead and say we can be more proud of the letter
than we are of the football victory. But, since we have already
on the football game, we'll be magnanimous and make that
Seriously though, we think it is a trait to be jealously de-
sired, that we are well enough behaved that people will notice
and congratulate us for it. We realize all is not sweetness and
light in the matter of deportment in the ianks of our people. It
may be that people are so animal-like everywhereelse they think
our folks are angelic, strictly by comparison. But, it's nice to be
noticed for that particular trait, anyhow.
I THE MAN DIDN'T have to write the letter in the first place.
Ie could have just muttered under his breath that we're pretty
nice folks up here and look forward to the time when he can
come again, but he didn't.
That just goes to show that a few .kind words are immensely
appreciated by the person they are aimed at and they 'breed even
more kind actions the next time your paths cross. Kind words
will go a long way toward soothing the savage beast. Most people
are uncomfortable in the presence of unpleasant words or ac-
tl4ns and want to get as far away from them as possible.
It's the rare bird that is not attracted by civilized actions or
kind words. You attracted our attention, Randy Ray. You may
beat us unmercifully, in football next season, but it won't hurt at
all because we will remember your kind, words in our behalf.
They may make us just a little uncomfortable because of the
scarcity of such expressions, but it didn't take us long to learn
to wallow in the syrup of kindness.
THAT OLD CLICHE still holds true today, after all these
years: You catch more flies with honey that you do with vinegar.

Where Did We Get All That Tricking and Treating Stuff?
You can thank the Gulf
County Public Library and, its
wealth of reference books, for the
material from which this week's
informative column was taken.
JUST WHERE DID Hal-
lowe'en come from? How did it
originate? Actually, it is a very
ancient celebration even older
than the Christian church, which
started over 2,000 years ago.
The modem Hallowe'en
comes on October 31 and was
evolved by the Romans from an
ancient Druid attempt at pleasing
their gods. The day is officially
the day before "All Hallows or All
Saints' Day," on November 1.
A chapel was consecrated at
St. Peter's in Rome to honor all
saints [both known and un-
known] on All Saints' Day. How-
ever, the rites on the preceding
evening, now a Christian obser-
vance, really stem from an early
By Wesley Ramsey
The holiday, or festival was
adopted by the Roman Catholic
Church to honor all saints.
ANCIENT DRUIDS were na-
ture worshipers, and performed
mystic ceremonies to the great
sun god at such places as a circle
of stones near Stonehenge, in
England, with the remains still
there today. They used ,the date
and place to appease the lord of
death and as a part of their au-
So Hallowe'en originally had
two purposes: a festival to placate
the gods and to celebrate the har-
It was a time, too, when it
was believed that witches rode
through the skies on their broom-
sticks. Witches were believed to
be women who had sold them-
selves to the devil and were be-.
lieved to be prevalent among the
Druids, Egyptians and Romans.
[Possibly this belief somehow fil-
tered down to the people of Sa-

THIS WAS THE night of the
full yellow moon, when black
cats, bats, elves, and fairies were
abroad. Frustrated ghosts were
supposed to play tricks on hu-
man beings and to cause super-
natural happenings. Farmers
placed bells that had been
blessed on their cows to protect,
them from the spirits.
Originally it was a night when
fanners set pitch forks full of hay
on fire and waved them about
from hilltops to chase away any-
It was also a time, in Ireland,
for putting out the-old fire in the
hearth, then they gathered at a
'certain place where Druid priests
rubbed together pieces of sacred
oak and started a blaze on the. al-
tar. Each head of a family would
take a live coal home and start a
new fire in the hearth, which was
to last all year long.
OUR, MODERN Hallowe'en
has some elements that originat-
ed in the ancient Roman feast
, honoring Pomona, goddess of
fruits, this being a harvest cele-
bration. After the Romans had
conquered Britain, some of their
customs were added to those of
the Druids. Since the Roman fes-
tival also occurred after harvest,

feature fruit centerpieces, apples-
A young person often peeled
an apple, threw the peeling over
his shoulder, and from its shape
told the initial of a sweetheart.
There was also a belief that if
anyone ate a crust of bread be-
fore going to sleep, any wish they
made would come true.
After the spread of Christiani-
ty, enemies of the church made
fun of the Christians, and on Hal-

Life Before Television
I know I don't look it, and I certainly don't feel that old, but I'm
old enough to remember what life was like before television became
a household necessity. As a matter of fact, it was about 1950 when
I saw my first television set (with a picture) at the state fair in Pen-
sacola. I couldn't believe it, fuzzy picture and all.
It was about 1954 before we got our first TV. My next oldest
brother has graduated from high school and found a good job, and
one day he came home with a 21" black and white TV. There was no
color television at that time, but, needless-to-say, we were the rage
of Ferry Pass for a few months!
But this article is about life before television. The TV took us off
the front porch where we would sit in the' evening, and it took us
away from the pot-bellied stove we would migrate to when the
weather was too cold or rainy. The television set put an end to fami-
ly and friends sitting and talking to one another, And, ain't that a
Before television, a typical summer evening would go something
like this: after supper, the women (my mother and sisters) would
clean the kitchen and dining room and the other children would do
homework or clean our rooms. Daddy would go directly to the front
porch, where he would sit in his favorite chair and would roll and
smoke one of the many Prince Albert cigarettes he would smoke
during the evening.
Many times, I watched as he gently tapped the tobacco in to the
paper and slowly rolled it around and, Just as he was finished roll-
ing, he would lick the inside of the top flap, dealing it together.He
would then light it with a kitchen match that was cupped inside his
hands, give a few short puffs, and then take a long drag and inhale
deeply. The smoke would billow from his mouth and nose, filling
the night air with the sweet smell of the tobacco.
Smoking seemed so much fun and pleasure that I took it up be-
fore I was old enough to know better.
Most of the time, when the women had finished in the kitchen,
they would join the rest of the family on the front porch. We had a
double-swing, a two-seated rocker, and two single rockers. They
were purchased from a man driving a large, flat-bed truck loaded
with such and sanded down and painted. When the seats were
filled with adults and older children, the rest of us would sit on the
floor or steps leading to the porch. We didn't hang our feet off the
front porch for fear a snake might come from under the house and
bite our legs.
Then we would sit and listen to night sounds and we would
talk. If we had company, and we did from time to time, the children
were not allowed to join in the conversation except to ask ques-
tions, or sometimes we were allowed to tell a special story if it was
something unusual or funny. .We were there to listen and learn.
Pre-teen children didn't have much in common with adults in those,
"Leola," my daddy would often say, "go get me a cup of coffee."
Mother would usually turn to one of us and say, "Go get daddy a
cup of coffee, and be sure to wash out the cup before you pour it."
And off one of us would run with mother's instructions following us:
"Be sure to heat it before you pour it!"
Daddy wasn't much of a talker, but we had some family mem-
bers and friends who were. All we had to do was ask a 'question
about something that happened in the "old days", and off one of the
adults would go, spinning a yarn about some supernatural thing
,that happened before homes had electricity and telephones. Some
stories were about incidents that happened in graveyards and al-
though they scared us half-to-death, we loved them.

dren always beat the adults inside, especially if there had been "sto-

She picked up her broom and

doing.some serious dancing ....
Mr. McCaleb had to come
downstairs and restore order.
The high-lite of the evening

and. a semi-covered up Mary E.
reached up and took her mask
off. She was wearing that one I
know you've seen with the big
nose and the warts and the cut

she unveiled, Mr. McCaleb took
one look at the real Mary E.,
grabbed his heart, covered his
face, staggered back in shock and
declared, "Lord, girl, put it back

Of Ethics Charge
Former Gulf County Commis-
sioner Donald B. Parker has been
cleared of any charges' filed
against him alleging an ethics vio-
lation which was supposedly
committed in 1991.
The charges were filed
against Parker by .another Gulf
County Commissioner, Nathan
Peters, Jr., who charged Parker
with the violation in voting to ap-
prove an invoice which sent mon-
ey to his employer at the time.
Parker had been hired as. a
temporary employee by Capital
Asphalt Company, who had also
subcontracted a paving project in
Gulf County with C. W. Roberts
Contracting Company. Capital
had contracted with Roberts in
the fall of 1990 and hired Parker
in the spring of 1991. In March of
1991, the Commission had ap-
proved a $14,000 payment to
C.W. Roberts as .partial payment
for his services.
Parker voted for the payment,
a part of which was to pay Capi-
'tal for its part in the project. The
Commission charged that Parker
knew the County had a contract
with C.W. Roberts and that his
vote could directly benefit his em-
and Calhoun County, utilized air
and ground units in the search
for the fugitive. The Calhoun Cor-
rection Dog Unit assisted in the
tracking operations, locating
Fields about three miles from the
prison, hiding in the Woods.
Fields is being held in Gulf
County Jail on escape charges.

10 A dl-'W M A
By Jack Harper, Weekly News Service
TALLAHASSEE The encouraging news on e eve of a special
Legislative session to take some action on Florida's depressing juve-
nile system is that the murder rate among kids has been dropping
for the past three years and other crimes have decreased or leveled
off since 1991.
Those statistics, reported by the Florida Department of Law En-
forcement, have been largely obscured by the world-wide publicity
given to the black-teenagers charged with the murder of the English
tourist at the highway rest stop near Monticello in the Florida Pan-
But there is encouraging news in that development, tdo. People
on the two sides of the Juvenile crime debate-one to lock them up-
*-and throw away the key and the other to treat the causes-are
about to get together, mainly because of the obvious flaws in the
system that isn't working.
Another good news tidbit is that police know.who the seven per-
cent of the kids who cause most of the bad crimes are so they can
be isolated and targeted for whatever treatment the Legislature
wants to design for them.
Don't expect much to 'come from the session that starts Mon-
day, except for posturing by those who will be running again next
year. Gov. Lawton Chiles has called for a law that would ban guns
to juveniles under 18, except for hunting and target practice under
the supervision of an adult. He'll probably get that, but in-depth an-
" swers won't be really looked into until the regular session next year.,
Some of the old and new ideas the committees In both houses
are studying are:
Take the Juvenile justice system away from Health and Reha-
bilitative services and put it exclusively in the Department of Correc-
tions; .. '
Punish parents along with their children when they commit
crimes. : .
*' Create more bootcamps with military style discipline.
Publicize the names of kids who get into trouble.
*Bring back reform schools ;
*Encourage private sector investments into inner cities to pro-
vide Jobs for kids, even bring back some form of the old WPA (Works'
Progress Administration) to create jobs.
All-day-schools so children could stay before and after classes
to get help with their studies and participate In other activities, in-
stead of going home to a crime environment.
Provide a cop for each neighborhood.
Turn schools into community centers that provide health clin-'
ics and Job services for parents.
The catch is that a strong family with two parents present is the
real key to provide leadership for good and bad kids and the state.
after-all, can't do that-it can only encourage. In fact, the state
stands accused of taking God out of the schools and the fathers out
of the families by its laws.
JUST A CABLEGATE
Democratic activists around the Florida capital have been hop-
ing for a Watergate incident since reports came in that Gadsden
County Sheriff W. A. Woodham wants to know why a private investi-
gator was'sifting through Senator Pat Thomas' trash. Instead. it ap-
pears it's only a Cablegate.
The incident occurred July 26 in Quincy when Matt and Lola
Farmer after a late supper at Kittrell's Restaurant spotted two men
rifling through a 90-gallon garbage container they had moved from
the curb in front of Senator Thomas' office to the open trunk of a
Dodge Shadow parked in the driveway. As the couple walked across
the street to investigate, the two men dumped what was left of the
contents of the garbage can Into the trunk of the car and quickly
drove off, narrowly missing the Farmers.
Woodham said last week he has traced the car through the It-
cense tag number reported to him to Kim Buckhalter of Moultrie.
Geog -, rivateetectlve whose llcepns ,xAredl A o ,
-- i ent an investIator to Moultrle. He 'didn t get ifftuch coopera-
r tion up there. About the only case that can be made so far would be
if the Farmers want to press charges against them (the two men) for
almost running them down," Woodham said.
Investigative reporters in the capitol and one from the Havana
Herald, the weekly newspaper that broke the story, have been una-
ble to contact Buckhalter. He is also not returning calls to the Gads-
den Sheriffs Department and the Florida Department of Law En-
forcement, Woodham said.
The reports come as state investigators and federal prosecutors
are investigating the efforts by two cable television executives to dig
up dirt on utility regulators by hiring private detectives. Cable is
fighting for a competitive edge against Southern Bell and other tele-
Senator Thomas, recently sworn in as president of the Florida
Senate, said he has no speculation as to why the P.I. was snooping
in his garbage or who might have hired him.
"Ours is an open shop. I will be glad to discuss anything we
have here. I am not aware of any circumstances that might attract
any snooping." Thomas said.
On Tuesday,. November 23,-

Take a stand for fair, impartial government in your city. Every citizen
should ask: -'
1) Does my vote count?
2) Must my continued opposition to the wrongs directed toward the
very people who elected them always fall on deaf ears of the City
3) Must my hard-earned taxes be wasted for things we neither need
Hundreds of thousands of $$ are and will continue-to be wasted on%
foolish City projects; i.e., the splendor of Florida Boulevard and public
parking lot! The only response from the Council is, "We, not you, are
capable of managing your money. Don't object--just pay, pay, pay." ,

Lewis Taylor, an environmen-
tal official at St. Joe Forest Prod-
ucts company's paper mill here
in Port St. Joe, told the Kiwanis
Club Tuesday that the environ-
mental movement had grown
from a system which promulgated
200 laws at its beginning in 1970
to nearly 100,000 laws today.
'That's my Job at the paper
mill; to make sure all these laws
which apply to us are complied
with," he said.
Improvements made at the
mill to comply with environmen-
tal laws now cost $26,50 per ton
of paper made, Taylor told the
Club. He said the mill has spent
"a lot of money" in the past 20
years to- meet the demands. of
keeping the environment clean.
'"There are three points of
concern by the environmental
people," said Taylor. These in-
clude, "Water, land and air."
Taylor; said industry in the
United States is spending some
$1.8 billion a year to protect: our
surroundings, while industry in
the remainder of'the: world are
spending virtually ,nothing. He'
predicts environmental protectl o
will remain expensive to Ameri-
can business, costing from $4 to0
$8 billion by the turn of the cen-.
'The public thinks things are
'going downhill' but they're not.
The environment is getting better
and people are becoming more
aware every year," the speaker
said. "Here in Gulf County we are
doing a good job with the paper,
mill and at the Wastewater Treat-
ment Plant, where treatment
numbers are consistently higher
than state requirements."

What do the Port St. Joe
Sharks football team and the
Philadelphia Phillies baseball
team have in common?
Both were coining from be-
hind and had momentum going
their way and a victory in sight,
when a home run in the last in-
ning did them in.
The Florida High Seminoles
had taken a 14-0 lead over the
Sharks at half-time Friday night,
but the Sharks had tightened up
their defense and cranked up'
their offense in the second half to
tie the score, with the momentum
on their side of the ball when the
Seminoles' superb quarterback,
Derrick Dudley, let fly with a des-,
peration pass down the sidelines.
to Hasani Kilpatrick for a 45-
yard, game-winning touchdown
with only. 51 seconds remaining-
in the game.
The game was an important
one for the Sharks, with leader-
ship in the District 2 AA stand-
ings at stake. After Friday's,
shoot-out, both teams are still
tied in the standings, with one
win and one loss.
Florida High opened up the
holes and used slick Jason Trumi-
bower to perfection in the first
half, with the Dudley-Trumbower"
combination being the difference
in the half. Trumbower caught
timely passes from Derrick and
ran up crucial yardage around&
the Sharks' end when it was
The Seminoles had their first
touchdown set up on a 19-yard
run by Triumbower, capped by a
two-yard plunge by Aaron
Thompson for the first score on
Zyris Hill -stopped another
Seminole drive on the Shark 45,
when he fell on a Florida High
fumble on the 42 yard line.
The Seminoles put another
seven points up with 9:24 still re-
maining in the half with a pass
play good for 78-yards from Der-
rick to Trumbower.
The Sharks' defense then dug
in and stopped the Seminoles
twice in the second period..A gag-
gle of Shark defenders smothered
a Seminole ball carrier on Florida
High's 24 yard line, forcing a
fumble and Jeremy Tull came out
of the pack with the pigskin
tucked under his arm.
TIE IT IN SECOND HALF
The Sharks came roaring
back in the second half, forcing
the Seminoles' third fumble, this
time on the 23 yard line with an-
other host of Sharks on the ball.
The Shark offense then went
to work and pushed the football
across the goal line with Bryan
Butts connecting with Jamaail
Fenn on a 19-yard pass play for
the score. Barry Adkison, kicking
for the injured Eric Monteiro,
nailed it through the up-rights for
the extra point.
The Sharks opened up the
last quarter with a scoring drive
from the Florida High 46, all- the
way to the goal line. Antwoine Al-
len and Fenn ran the ball to the
28 yard line in two plays, then
Butts threw a .strike to Des Bax-
ter in the right corner for the
touchdown. Again, Adkison's kick
for the extra point was right on
target, and the Sharks had a 14-
14 tie, going into the final 10
minutes of play.
With the Sharks driving and
using up the clock, the Seminoles
defense caught Butts scrambling
and threw him for a nine yard
loss. Then, with the Sharks at-
tempting to make up the long def-
icit, the Seminoles hauled in their
only interception of the night, at
their own 34 yard line.
With only 54 seconds left on
the clock, Derrick again let loose
with one of his accurate passes,
catching Kilpatrick in a gallop up
the left sidelines. Kilpatrick didn't
slow up until he crossed the goal
line with the winning TD.
But the Sharks still didn't
give up. With Butts going to the
air, Des Baxter and Zyris Hill got
them back to the Florida High 24
before time ran out, and the

Miss April's class has been
studying owls-so Miss Paula
(Boone) and Coach (Eells) of Big
Bend Wildlife Sanctuary brought
the real things in for them to
see-"Corky", "Little Red", and
Corky is a burrowing owl, Lit-
tle red is a screech, and Ruffles is
a barred owl.
They were able to witness the
soft, silent ruffle of wings; hear
the hissing and yakking sound of
the burrowing owl, and see the
movement of heads and the dif-
ferences in feather color and eyes.
Thanks to Betsey Knight, di-
rector of Big Bend Wildlife in
Blountstown, for sharing the
Miss Mary Blackburn's
class-well no one has ever really
seen one of these-but the first
graders made them!
They were studying and read-
ing a book about teeth and one of
their projects was making tooth
fairies-you know, those little si-
lent guys that visit and leave a bit
of money when we put our pulled

made some neat looking tooth
fairies out of construction paper,
cotton, sequins, buttons, stick-on
stars, and wrote about their tooth
fairy on the backs of them.

WHAT WE EAT
Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.
For the body to mount a defense against disease, It needs to be
in optimal condition with good amounts of red and white blood cells
and body proteins. This is not accomplished by eating potato chips
and drinking colas.
With babies It is imperative to keep things simple. A young
baby needs only milk (preferably breast milk) for the first few
months of life. Parents are always in a hurry to get the baby to eat
things they do not need. The first solid food should be baby cereal
followed with slow additions of vegetables, meats, and fruits. The
cereal should be plain and not with this or that added by the baby
food companies to entice the parent to buy.
When babies are fed vegetables regularly they love vegetables,
but if the choice is given between vegetables and fruits (with sugar,
added) they begin to reject the vegetables and prefer the fruits.
Toddlers and young children often fall into bad dietary habits
when their appetites are not too good in a period of slow growth.
They will not eat breakfast, but will come whining for something to
eat at 10-11 a.m. If they are fed at that time, they will not eat
lunch. It is better to establish regular meal times and let them eat
at those times when they are hungry. No between meal eating is a
Older children will be out of the home more than small chil-
dren, and they will be faced with many offerings of things to eat. It
will be hard, but if they are well trained, they will refuse the junk
food offered because they will have been educated to know junk
food is not good for their bodies.
It is a pleasure to feed a child who loves to eat. Parents feel
good performing this nurturing of small children, and they feel ful-
filled in the parental role when they are able to supply unlimited
food to the family. This sense of parenting becomes perverted when
a child is allowed to eat constantly. This eating habit (addiction)
leads to obesity and many health problems in later years. The fami-
ly diet needs careful planning and preparation if the consequences
of high calorie, high fat, high cholesterol diets are to be avoided.

The volume of reported index
crime in Florida during the first
six months of 1993 has declined
1.6% as compared to the first six
months for last year. Violent
crimes (murder, forcible sex of-
fenses, robbery, and aggravated
assault) remained at the same
level as the first six months of
1992. A total of 77,036 violent
crimes occurred in Florida over
the first six months of the year
compared to 77,012 over the
same period last year. Most dis-
turbing is the fact that juvenile
arrests for murder were up 16.7%
and up over 32.7% for rape. Over-
all, murder increased 10.3% for
this period. 'These figures con-
firm what we have known for
some time, well before the highly
publicized events of the last few
weeks." FDLE Commissioner Tim
Moore added, "While robberies
were down 4.6%, violent crimi-
nals in Florida continue to victi-
mize our citizens and take away
our personal freedoms."
Domestic violence in Florida
affected 54,078 victims during
the first six months of 1993 as
compared to 47,607 during the
same period last year.
Drug offenses are down 5.2%
for the first half of this year. This
is a reversal from the same period
in 1992 which showed an in-
crease of 10.2%. However, juve-

WES See Karate Demonstration
Our thanks to Greg Cole,
School Resource Officer for WHS
for delighting our WES audience
with his karate demonstration.
Also performing in the demo were
Gene Hanlon and his son Stacy,
as well as the Karate Club at
WHS. It takes self discipline and
many hours of practice to earn
the various belts. We appreciate
WES Students See Navy Band
All of our students were treat-

tal in bringing them here.

Pre-payment will be collected on

Attention Senior Parents-caps, gowns, invitations, etc., will be
ordered November 10 (4, 5, and 6 periods). Parents need to be in-
volved with students when ordering these graduation items. Many
-times, students get carried away and order much more than they
need, spending more money than they can afford to spend. Informa-
tion packets will be passed out November 1, and- a deposit of at
least $40 is needed with each order. Remember, parents, get in-
volved and help keep your expenses in line.
Ms. Holloway and "POPS" are busily contacting people about
Homecoming (Nov. 5). Call her or the 'school for the details. Ms. Lisa
Ingram, SGA sponsor, is in charge of the whole show; parade, etc.
Ask her for details about the program, parade, etc.
The WHS band is sponsoring a marching band contest for small
schools Saturday morning at WHS field. Several bands will perform
and be judged, and refreshments will be sold at the concession
stand. Plan to go down and observe (no fee to enter). This is a first
for the WHS band-they expect to sponsor bigger events like this in
the future. Let's make these visiting band students feel "at home"
Saturday morning. Plan to eat lunch at the concession stand-the
Band Boosters are raising $$ for new-uniforms.
This Friday night the Gators travel (again) to Liberty County to
face the Bulldogs, who are having a good year. Stay with them-
maybe we will put it all together and pull a "munroe" surprise!
Game time is 6:30 CT1 -
More dates to remember-Nov. 4, Faculty vs. Student Govern-
ment Volleyball, and Nov. 9. donkey basketball-lf you haven't vol-
unteered to ride, call Coach Franzese (he needs a few)ll The shovel-
ing job is still open, also
TV, which used to police itself about language, etc., is reaching
new lows. ESPN's player interviews,yielded an on-the-air comment
that was crude & vulgar. Violence on TV is not the only thing that
needs changing. Your students reflect what they see on TV and
hear on tapes and videos. Until parents force some kind of return to
decency, the trend towards open vulgarity and crude language and
behavior will continue to be the norm, rather than the exception.
