Dispute


On Labor


Grievance

Claims Arbitrator
Gave A Direct
Ruling On Case
A labor dispute between Gulf
County and the newly recognized
International Union of Operating
Engineers, Which represents
County Road Department and
Mosquito Control employees, over
a grievance totaling $2.16. It has
already cost the County and the
Union $1,692.38., each, in arbi-
tration fees and it still isn't set-
tled.
At Tuesday night's meeting,
Walter Brannon, Union represen-
tative, appeared requesting an
"across-the-board" pay scale ad-
justment based on one arbitra-
tion case and leveling charges at
the County appointed Union ne-
gotiator, .L~ry Wells. Brannon
was chargingithat Wells was be-
ing obstinate ,and failing to nego-
tiate in good faith. Brannon said,
'We have the decision of an arbi-
trator for this case, and Wells is
failing to settle."
Wells, speaking in his de-
fense said, 'The arbitrator didn't
give'a ruling as Mr. Brannon stat-
ed; he gave an opinion and- it
states such on the front page of
his report. We have agreed to pay
the money to the employee but
Mr. Brannon keeps bringing up a
salary increase for all employees.
a matter which wasn't part of the
negotiation and shouldn't be dis-
cussed except as a separate sub-
ject altogether."
WHAT STARTED IT
The arbitration was initiated
when an employee firedc-a-grier -
vance over the $2.16. The County
has long since paid the money,
but the arbitration lingers on.
The employee was temporari-
ly assigned to a different task
than he regularly performed. The
new task had three levels of pay,
according to the experience in-
volved. The employee was first'
paid the lowest pay level of the
higher paying Job, because of
contract requirements. He
claimed the larger pay scale and,
filed the grievance when he didn't
get it.
Brannon :finally agreed to
meet with 'Welws Wednesday
morning in an attempt to iron out
the problem to the satisfaction of
both parties.

Fire investigators were still sifting through the ashes of the
mobile home in Wewahitchka Tuesday, searching for a reason
why it burned. Sheriff Al Harrison told The Star Wednesday
morning their investigation had ruled the fire as being caused


by accident.
Davila said the children's great-
grandfather, Lloyd Sherrod, had passed by
the mobile home about 4:15 a.m.. delivering
newspapers and reported everything seemed
to be normal. The next time he heard from

him from gaining entrance. When he finally
was able to snatch a door open, he received
no answer to shouts to the children inside.
FLAMES FROM EVERY WINDOW-


The wewanitcnKa volunteer rire Lepart-
ment had the fire under control in just a few
minutes, but it was too late. "It was too late
when we arrived," Fire Captain Brian Cox said. "Flames were
burning out every window as much as 10 feet in the air."
The three small youths were buried Monday afternoon in
Roberts Cemetery at Honeyville.


Work Cranked Up Monday on Construction

White City Water Project Finally Begins After Many Delays-March Completion Date Scheduled


Work started Tuesday after-
noon, in spite of rain and threats
of more to come, on construction
of the new White City water sys-
tem. The system has been nearly
three years in the planning, with
the process of installation finally
getting under way. -
The contractoi-, Watkins Con-
struction Company ofTallahassee
started laying the. water supply


main between the City of Port St.
1,Joe's treatment plant and the
south side of the White City
bridge, with work actually begin-
ning at the bridge. Engineers as-
certained the Port St. Joe supply
would provide better water, be
more dependable and less expen-'
sive than White City maintaining
its own supply and treatment fa-
cilities.


Project foreman Ed Hill told
The Star he expected to be
through with the supply line by
the end of November. He predict-
ed the'people of White City could
begin using their new system by
March. Commissioner Michael
Hammond, a resident of White
City and present for the start of
construction Tuesday afternoon,
quipped, "I'll just be glad to final-


ly get good water whenever we
get it."
White City, which has 160-
plus families, has wanted a cen-
tral system for some time, but
their low population and distance
from a source of treated water
has stymied efforts to obtain the
service in the past. A case of hep-
atitis, which the Health Depart-


ment traced to a tainted water
well in the community, led to the
State of Florida initiating the pro-
ject with a grant of $200,000.
Through efforts of the Gulf
County Commission over the past
three years an additional grant
and a $200,000 loan has com-
pleted the $700,000 fund which
will be used to build the system.


Vet's Day Observance
Veterans of all wars will be honored today in special
Veterans' Day services this morning at 9:00 and 11:00
a.m., sponsored by the Gulf County School Board, Vete-
rans of Foreign Wars and the American Legion Post.
Ceremonies at 9:00 are being held in the Commons
area of Port St. Joe High School and at 11:00 a.m. in
front of the Gulf County Courthouse. The public is in-
vited to attend and honor the nation's Veterans.


Ed Hill, project foreman and Commissioner noon for the start of construction of the White
Michael Hammond were on hand Tuesday after- City water system.


.Peterson's Rep.
Here Monday
U.S. Congressman Pete Peter-
son, D-Marianna, announced to-
day that a representative from his
Panama City district office will
visit Port St. Joe to meet with
constituents from 3:30 p.m. to
4:30 p.m. EST, Monday, Novem-
ber 15, in the law library of the
Gulf County Courthouse.
Peterson said .the staff mem-
ber, who will be visiting Gulf
County monthly, will provide in-
formation and help to residents
with questions and problems re-
lated to the federal government.


DOT Restricts Vehicular

Parking On Highway 98


The Florida Department of
Transportation has notified the
City of Port St. Joe of a change
made in their regulations govern-
ing Highway 98 inside the City,
specifically parking on the side of
the street.
The DOT has curtailed -munlim-
ited parking on both sides of the
Highway between First and Fifth
Streets between the hours of 5:00
a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
New regulations, received
Monday of this week, would allow


two hour parking on the street
during the day.
The City Commission has re-
ceived many complaints of park-
ing on the street being a traffic
hazard because of lack of vision
at intersections. Complaints were
aimed especially at trucks and
boats being parked on the street,
restricting vision."
The City had no power to an-
swer any of the complaints and
had made a request of the DOT
for guidance in the matter.

County

Report,



Advice

On Long Term
Solution for Its
Solid Waste
The County Commission had
expert advice on what would be
the most economical method of
handling their growing solid
waste problem Tuesday night,
but were advised there were no
"easy fikes".
Sam 'Barker and Tom Keyes,
of Sam Barker Associates were
contracted by the County to give
them some advice in the matter
before they go off in any set direc-
tion. The firm. gave a report on its
findings and its recommendations
Tuesday in a condensed manner.
They reported the County
was generating some 15,500 tons
of solid waste each month, with
40% of the load going out of the
County for disposal and the re-
mainder either taken care of in
one of its two Class III landfills
or taken out of the stream
through recycling.
The consultants reported the
two landfills had enough capacity
remaining to care for the
County's needs until 2013.
RECOMMEND MANDATORY
WASTE COLLECTION
The most revolutionary sug-
gestion made by the consultants
'. as to reiuIre' mandatory collec-
tion of solid waste and require
every home, business or firm in
the county to subscribe to a col-
lection service, either provided by
the County or contracted.
Presently the County has no
collection services. Collection is
provided by the city inside the
Port St. Joe city limits and by Ar-
gus Services in the remainder of
the County.
Other than the suggestion to
adopt a mandatory collection of
solid waste, the' firm also recom-
mended a continued emphasis on
recycling, negotiating a long-term
contract, preferably with Bay
County, for. disposal of solid
waste in their incinerator, and
negotiation of a program with St.
Joe 'Paper Company to accept fuel
pellets, with the County making
the pellets from waste paper and
other organic matter. They pro-
jected an average of 2,950 tons of
the fuel pellets could be produced
each month. "This would extend
the usefulness of your Class III
landfills," Barker said.
Barker discouraged any idea
the County may have to construct
a Class I landfill 'to accept solid
waste now being trucked to Bay
County. "It would be too expen-
sive to construct and to operate,"
he reported.
The County didn't really hear
anything new, nor did they re-
ceive any magic solutions to deal
with solid waste, but they did
hear the only solution to which
would satisfy the state law would
be a never-ending process and it
wouldn't be cheap.
The firm reported the County
was headed in the right direction
with what was already accom-
plished and its cooperation with
the City of Port St. Joe in a recy-
cling program. The consultants
saiadthey had even approached
the City of Port St. Joe about op-
erating a system for the entire
County but "they had politely
said they weren't interested."

It Works! U
WE LOOK AT WHATEVER comes out about the Clinton's
medical program with particular interest because it affects this
writer so personally as well as professionally. The "up's" and
"down's" of the proposed program, its costs, its benefits and how
it will affect the American people has this writer bothered to the
point of concern.
We expect the Democratic spokesmen to endorse and the Re-
publican spokesmen to oppose the program, but we hardly know
what to think,'or which way to offer our allegiance when Demo-
crats of national stature lead the cheers of the opposition and
Republicans of national influence endorse the plan.
It makes us and many other average Americans wonder
about the advisability of blindly accepting the program on the -
endorsement of even the President or his first lady that the pro-
gram will fly and will make all our citizens feel good about their
medical future.
WITH ONLY HILLARY leading the way in the trenches, it
makes us leery of the figures made public for this reason: if-the
plan doesn't work, there will be no Congressman who has been
responsible for selling the program or who promised us any-
thing.
This is a program of extreme importance. We would like to
see the leaders of Congress say, 'Yes, this program will work and
no, the cost won't be astronomical. We can live with it and it will
take care of everyone's medical needs." We would like to see
that. We know, such a statement is really pie in the sky but
such an important piece of legislation should really have the en-
dorsement of all the Senate and House leadership.
We would hate for the American Congress to adopt a medical
program, dismantling the present system which is costly, it's
true, but it works better than any other medical program in the
world!
AS IT IS, CONGRESS CAN'T even agree with the Clinton's
on the cost. Originally, the program was going to hike medical
costs 20% across the board. Then opponents came out with the
'revelation that the cost would be more like 40% higher than it
presently is. Now, after careful thought and study, they have re-
leased the information that costs will be only 30% more than at
present.
Whichever figure is correct, it's too much. The idea was to
REDUCE medical costs not INCREASE them. If we're going to be
saddled with "more of the same" we would be satisfied to leave
the system as it is. At least we know it works!


Buy It, Quick!

SHOULD THE CITY purchase the property at the comer of
Highway 98 and Fifth Street? Is the agreed-on price a fair price
for the City? Do we need the park? Would it be an asset to our
community?
We would feel we were remiss in our loyalty to the future of
this City if we answered any of these questions in any way but
the affirmative. Here's why-
First, if for no other reason except that the City has had the
use of the property for nearly 90 years as a park., It has been
provided by the owner for that long, free of charge, for the City to
enjoy and point to with pride. We, for one, would like the City to
continue enjoying and pointing to with pride this perfect spot for .
a beautiful park. It's an asset to our City which can't be meas-
ured by monetary values. .
IS THE PRICE too much? We think not. Our association
with the former owners made us privy to an offer they had a few
years back by an eager buyer of,much, much more than the
property has been priced to the City.
It is a valuable piece of desirable property. The City can con-
sider itself lucky to have the offer at any price.
DO WE NEED the park? Apparently we do. We find ourselves
searching to remember a week in which the property hasn't been
used for some public function whose success included being car-
rled out in a roomy location. It has been used and necessary to
the people of Port St. Joe at least since 1915, when the park and
the Bay attracted excursion trains to Port St. Joe for a week end
of bathing in St. Joseph Bay and picnicing, enjoying concerts
and enjoying a more gentle period in history in the park. It has
always served as the center of activities for our City. We would SA
lose something valuable if the situation were to be changed. .
WOULD IT BE an asset to our community? Of course it VE"
would It would remain a valuable asset to our community as a
park and as a center of recreation which it has served for many BR
years.,, TH
Most Cities would give their most prized possession for such
a park. Buy it, Commissioners, before the Union Bank changes
its mind! .


Hunker Down with Kes


Some Gave All.


November 1 1, 1993-You
know what my dad said was one
of the worst things about World
War II for him? It was climbing
over the side of that big troop
ship on those rope ladders to get
down to the small landing crafts
to take them ashore. I can re-


member him telling me as a boy
how rough the sea was every time
they had to go "over the side". He
laughed when he recalled how if
you weren't quick the guy above
you would "walk all over your
hands".

er. Both Thanksgiving and
Christmas are, major holidays
with an emphasis on families get-
ting together and celebrating with
visiting, eating and gift giving.
November and December is
possibly the busiest season of the
year for people of every economic
level.
The highways will be clogged
during these two months, what
with families travelling and get-
ting together to celebrate. It's not
too early to begin making plans,
either. Thanksgiving will be here
in just two weeks, with Christmas
just four more weeks down the
calendar. The stores will be full ,
between now and Christmas with
people shopping early and late; to
beat the crowd and to join with


the crowd. The poor and the afflu-
ent will all eat better during these
two months than at any other
time of the year.
BUT YOU DON'T HAVE to
lump December in with November
,to arrive at a busy season. The
month of November is chock-full
of all kinds of reasons to cele-
brate and observe.
You have already missed one
of the more important reasons to
celebrate. It happened last week
and I should have called it to
your attention, but I didn't.
There's just too many things and
special days to remember. I'll try


to make it up 'to you somehow
but.I realize .you hate to miss a
holiday and there won't be a total
making up of this one since you
missed it.
November kicked off the
month of celebrating in proper
fashion; celebrating National Fig
Week on the first day of the
month.
You missed it.... and I didn't
tell you about it until it was too.,
late to do anything about it. Oh
well, you can Just remind me
when this time comes around
next year. You just punch up
227-1278, ask to speak to Wes
and tell me "It's National Fijg


It isn't you know. November
is up to its neck in holidays, from
National Fig Week beginning No-
vember 1 to National Home Care
Week, which begins on Sunday,
November 28. National Bible
Week starts on the last day of No-
vember, but we won't count that
one. Bible Week should be going
on every week of the year.
November is just full of dates
in which states became a part of
the Union. There's North Dakota
on November 4, 1889; Montana
on November 10, 1889; Washing-
:ton on the very next day, Novem-
hber 11, 1889; South Dakota on
November 12, 1889, to make four
states coming into the Union in
as many days in the same year.
Oklahoma was accepted into the
*Union on November 16, 1907.


I CAN HARDLY wait for No-
vember 22 to roll around. It is a
special day; especially with the
nation in the turmoil it is in to-
day.
Monday,. November 22 is Na-
tional Stop the Violence Day.
Can you think of a day we
need more? It's just another day
on the calendar, but I hope it
works.. I'd kind of like to go to
south Florida again one day.
Right now, I'm sort of afraid to.
I'm no foreigner, but anyone
can just look at me when I get
away from Port St. Joe and arrive
at the correct conclusion that I
am a gawker. I might even be
classified as a tourist.
We need that National Stop
the Violence Day. It's one of the


holl-
owded

biggie;
usually


think of when one says, "Novem-
ber." They don't think of Pickle
Days [November 26],' or Franklin
Pierce's birthday [November 23],.
or even Saxophone Day [Novem-
ber 6].
People' almost unanimously
will recall, "Thanksgiving Dayl"
That's all fine and dandy. We
remember the colonial days of the
Indians and the white settlers
getting together for ,dinner and a
'peace pipe afterward. All was har-
mony and good feelings ... on a
full stomach, how could one feel
any other way?
But back to the important

"Eight, son."
Shoot. I remembered think-
ing. eight ain't very many.
Couldn't a' been too bad. "I bet It
was fun, Dad, I'd sure like to try
It!"
"Son. I was there so you'd
NEVER have to do it."
Grown up talk. Sometimes
my dad was hard to understand.
Or he just expected me to know
more than I knew. I asked Mom
about it once, she said I'd under-
stand one day, which, of course,
is no answer at all for a ten year
old. Maybe he just didn't want me
to have any fun when I grew
up ....
"Daddy, did you ever fall off?"
"No, son, but a few did, and
with eighty-five pounds strapped
to your back, it was some fall."
I started to ask him why
would anyone in their right
minds want to climb over the side
of a ship on a 'rope ladder in
rough weather in the middle of an
ocean with. eighty-five pounds of
weight tied on their backs when I
saw that look in his eyes .
that- far away I'm not here-
with you be back -in a -
minute look.
I sat silently and motionlessly
beside him for as long as I could
stand it. I tugged on his sleeve to
regain his attention.
"Dad," I almost whispered in
case he wasn't ready to come
back, yhy did you get into the
small boats?"
'To get ashore, son. The
ships could only get so close. We
had to go the rest of the way in
the landing crafts."
"Did you drive the boat?"
"No, son. Mostly. I just kept
my head down and thought of
your, mother and your older
brother. I thought of my mother
and father. I was praying that I
would see them all again."
'"Were you, uh, uh, (I almost
couldn't get the question out-I
didn't want to be embarrassed for
my dad) were you scared?"
"Son, I was scared to death.
Terrified."
-sOh -o! 'Myr atd Was a coward!r
Why did. I have -to -ask him 'that
Question? .:':
I fell silent. I would never tell
a soul! And I would run away
from home when I got old
enough. I couldn't believe it! My
dad was afral-
"Son," I kind'a turned away, I
wasn't going to let him see a tear,
"maybe you are old enough ... I
was scared alright. And so was
everyone else in that LST. We'd
done it enough times to know
what was fixing to happen. Son, I
saw men's hands -tremblinig so
much they couldn't geta cigarette
to their lips. I saw men losing
their breakfast all around me. I
saw grown men ;wet their, pants. I
saw men standing side by side,
one praying, the other cussing
the Japanese. I saw some com-
pletely motionless, as if they wer-
en't even there-lost in thoughts
of home, of family, of life, of
death. Son, I heard men question
what we were doing here, why did
we .need this tiny island? I heard

fractions.
Earley said, still the teachers
and the administrators use com-
mon sense in applying the penal-
ties called for. "For instance," he
said, "If a certain infraction calls
for five days of suspension, it
means the student receives a zero
in every class for those five days.
If he is due to take an important
test, such as a six weeks' exam,
depending on the severity of the
case, I will not start his suspen-
sion or punishment until after he
takes the test. He STILL gets his
penalty applied!"


He gave the instance of a stu-
dent being removed from the
school and sent to a school for
troubled students in Panama City
this week. "We're taking six week
exams this week and he is to
start in his new school Monday. I
told him he wasn't coming into
the classroom with the other stu-
dents, but I delivered his tests to
him so he could take them. He
handed them back, blank Such
unconcern is the major hurdle we
have to contend with," Earley
said.
Early gave high marks to the


new PRIDE program in the
schools. "It's definitely making a
difference," he said. "I think that
the Code of Conduct being writ-
ten down and applied in the same
manner for every instance of mis-
.conduct to every student is hav-
ing a positive impact on our stu-
dent body."
Earley said he had hopes for
the future, but that it was going
to be slow to improve. "As long as
we have this situation across the
nation, you can expect a certain
amount of similar behavior in
Port St. Joe High School."

ers, stick-on letters, word bal-

use templates to crop photos in
interesting shapes or create col-

"Most albums simply aren't
photo-safe," Sanders said. "The
two most popular methods of
storing photos-the magnetic
press-n-stick album and the
pocket page album-will actually
speed the deterioration process
through chemical reaction from
the glues and plastic coverings."
"Black-and-white photos will

mend that you shoot one roll of

recently passed through the Suez

The arrival of Freeman's ship
permitted the aircraft carrier USS-
Abraham Lincoln to return to Ala-

scheduled six-month deployment'
on time. Navy leaders are com-
mitted to a six-month cap on de-

from home for sailors.
Since arriving In the Mediter-

USS America battle group has op-'

Before the transit to Somalia,
Freeman's ship visited Trieste,
Italy, where the crew and the em- '
barked airwing assisted in refur- ;

Museum to complete restoration
of the 1877 Gulf Coast Schooner
Governor Stone, a National Histor-
ic Landmark vessel. In addition,
the Museum is planning to hire
staff, and develop sail training
programs for young people and
others who want to learn the val-
ue of working harmony with the
wind and sea.
Last spring, Captain Mike
Telker, a museum volunteer,
completed the work to the Gov-
ernor Stone that was necessary
for the vessel to pass Coast
Guard inspection to carry 23 pas-
sengers. Since then; the Governor
Stone has been sailing two hour
trips on the Apalachicola River
and Bay, three times a day, 'three
days a week from the dock of the
Rainbow Inn. These trips have
been very successful, offering the
public the opportunity to sail the
South's oldest sailing vessel on
the type of waters for which she
was designed. The schooner has
also had a, number of youth
groups aboard, and inquiries are
welcome from scouting groups,
church youth groups, and others.

ing steps, which must be followed
when one is bitten by an animal,
wild or domestic:
1. Report each bite incident,
no matter how minor, to the Gulf
County Public Health Unit. Ade-
quate information regarding vic-
tim's home address and tele-
phone number should be given so
the incident may be investigated

WHEN ONE PLUS ONE
DOES NOT EQUAL TWO
Inmathematics the addition of one and one will always
equal two. But in pharmacy this is not true all the time.
Every medicine has its own particular use but sometimes
two medicines working in combination will produce a third
) different result.
There are many such medicines and we are familiar with
. all their functions. When a physician gives you two
prescriptions in treating a condition, this combined result
4 could be what he is striving for. Always have every
prescription you are given filled without delay and take as
I directed.

Jefferson Puts Damper On


Shark's District Hopes


It took a downpour of rain
and mud up to the their knees to
bump the Sharks' out of the top
ten.AA teams in the state of Flori-
da Friday night.
Jefferson County Monticello,
normally a District 2 powerhouse
but with only one previous victory
to their credit this year, proved to
be the better "mudder" of the two
teams by knocking off the 6-2
Sharks, 19-7. It was no consola-
tion to the Sharks that 13 of
those'points came as the result of
a Shark fumble and an intercept-
ed pass. It was pouring rain and
the field was sloppy slick, wasn't
it? The score still counted.
Both, teams spent the first
half trying to learn to tread water
and keep their numbers legible. It
was definitely no night to try fbot-
ball strategy. The rain lightened
up to a steady downpour for the.
second half, however, and the
fumbles and slips just happened
to bounce more in MonUcello's di-


Sharks' 32 yard line. Three plays
later they were knocking at the
door from the eight yard line.
Quarterback Andre Siplin then
scored on a keeper, to make the
score 13-0 with 5:51 left in the
period.
The Sharks gambled late in
the quarter on a fourth and one
situation, calling on Antwione Al-
len, but Monticello stacked up
against him and .took ,over on
downs.
The Sharks put together their
first scoring drive early in the
fourth quarter with the defense
stopping the Tigers on their own
26 yard line. The Sharks worked
a little magic on their first down,
with Butts pitching out to Ja-
maail Fenn who passed to Antwi-
one Allen at the Jefferson 45.
Butts then nailed Fenn at the 25
and Allen rushed to the four in
two carries. Colbert and Frazier
edged the ball closer to the end
zone and Fenn pushed It in from


their single loss to Florida High.
Monticello also had a single loss
in the district but now have a,
pair of wins to put them in con-
tention.
Speedy Jason Robinson
spelled the difference in the
game, with the Shark defenders-
bogging up to their ankles in the
mud, unable to get a decent start
in pursuit of the speedy running
back.
Antwione Allen put together
40 yards of offense for the Sharks
in 9 carries. Ninamdi Frazier was
close behind with 28 yards on ten
carries. Jamaail Fenn sloshed up
18 more for five; Josh Colbert
went for 1,8 in two. Bryan Butts
was ten for 13 passing the wet
football, but had three Intercep-
tions. In pass receptions Fenn led
the way with two catches for 29
yards, followed by Allen who wad
two for 24 yards. Des Bazter had
four catches good for 18 yards.,


Antwione Allen (28) was the leading ground gainer for the Sharks Friday night on a wet Monticello.

As the second half opened,
the Sharks took the kick-off and
had moved to the 45 yard line be-
fore the first fateful fumble
squirted free. Monticello recov-
ered in a pile of players and in
two plays the Tigers' Jason Rob-
inson had raced up the sideline
to the Shark 21. A pass to Shan-
tel Maxwell put Monticello on the
scoreboard with the first points of
the night with 8:48 still remain-
,ing in the third period.:
It was the very next series of
downs when the Tigers intercept-
ed a Bryan Butts' pass at the


the one with 5:35 remaining on
the clock. The Sharks went for
two extra points and made it, but
were called for being off-side.
Monteiro then kicked the extra
point, making the score 13-7.
With the Sharks thinking
"last minute victory," their eager-
ness cost them when a clip penal-
ty kept a Tiger drive,going, which
ended when Robinson raced
down the sidelines for a 22 yard
touchdown to nail the lid on the
Sharks' third loss of the season.

THUMBSUCKING

OR PACIFIER?


If your infant has the thumb-
sucking. habit, should you try to
replace this habit with a pacifi-
er? -,
All babies have a natural in-
stinct to suck. But if the habit
'lingers beyond infancy, when
the primary teeth are beginning
to appear, you may want to give
baby a pacifier. If you start the
pacifier soon enough, just after
your child, has been weaned
and is getting solid foods, your
child may never develop the
thumbsucking habit.
Pacifiers have proved a lot
less harmful to a child's teeth
and mouth than sucking thumb
or fingers. Thumbsucking may


force your child's teeth out of
position and narrow the dental
arches. This may cause the
upper teeth to protrude outward
because of a deformation of the
supporting bone.
One advantage of the paci-
fier is that it is made of soft rub-
ber, while thumb or fingers have
an unyielding bone inside. They
exert much more pressure than
a pacifier and are much more
likely to cause dental problems.

Erosion Has Been a Problem for 150 Years


Records of Lighthouse Services Show a Continuous Problem

On Cape Until 1918, When Present Lighthouse Was Built


ONCE AGAIN THE supporters and antagonists of driving on
the beaches are at each other's throat. The supporters claim
they would be denied access to the south Gulf County beaches if
driving privileges were denied and dissenters have a two-fold
complaint. They claim these practices are damaging dune lines,
causing erosion of the beaches and a safety factor is involved,
with the well-being of those using the beaches on foot being
questioned.
:- Supporters of beach driving are bitterly charging the dissent-
efs of the activities have a selfish interest in removing vehicles
from the beaches so they will have the use of them all to them-
selves, since there are only three approved access points on the
entire 20 miles or so of beach. To gain handy access to the
beach, people other than property owners in the area would
have to cross private property; an offer they don't see' forthcom-
ing from any avenue.
THE MOST VOCAL argument seems to be the erosion prob-
lein. Beach residents and those who are most active in denying
beach access by automobile, are pounding on this highly emo-
tional point with vigor. Some beach residents have even orga-
nized themselves into a group to fight beach driving actively. On
the other hand, those favoring the continuation of the privilege
point to the factthat many of those living at south Gulf County
beaches actually purchased their property because they were al-
lowed to drive their vehicles on the beach.'
For the most part these and others who drive on the beach
are covetous of the privilege because it allows them access to the
best fishing spots, crabbing, picnicing, shell gathering and un-
crowded beach locations. Those who wish to continue access to
the beaches by motor vehicle, in short, wish to continue to, do so

For many years the
Gulf of Mexico has gnawed
at the beaches of St. Jo-
seph Peninsula and Indian
Pass, keeping the shore-
line in a constant state of
flux. The reefs alternately
building and receding is
the main reason a light-
house has been estab-
lished in the area for more
than 150 years. Even the
lighthouse has fallen vic-
tim to the capricious tides
and erosion. The map at
right shows where the first
light was built in 1849,
approximately a half mile
mile out in the Gulf. The
light fell victim of the
pounding surf, as did sub-
sequent attempts at estab-
li.ing .a permanent light
in.1856, 1859 and .1885.
Inr 1918, the attempt was
successful ... at least un-
til today. It, too, may be
gone next. week.

for the same reason home owners built homes or cottages in the
area.
BUT THE MATTER of erosion is not a recent problem. Maps
and records of the U.S. Lighthouse Service show there has been
an erosion problem in the vicinity of Cape San Blas and consid-
erably beyond that point for more than 150 years. Actually, the
maps show the erosion was most active between 1847 and 1884,
when the beach at the Cape reached an all-time low before it
started building again and continued to do so until the present
day. The maps show erosion along some parts of the beaches
and building in other parts as a continuing process, with the
process of which part accretes and which part recedes, changing
every few years.
As an example, there have been five lighthouses built in the
Cape San Blas vicinity since 1847. The present lighthouse has
been there since 1918, which shows the current relative stability
of that point.
All the lighthouses were built in the same vicinity with the
first being built some half mile south of the present light, which
point is now in the Gulf of Mexico. Three subsequent lights were
built near the same point between 1856 and 1885, all of which
met the fate of eroding shoreline. One was even eroded to the
point of uselessness before it was even finished.
These conditions occurred even before the advent of the
horseless carriage, which seems to be gaining the reputation as
the "heavy" in this situation.
SO THE BATTLE goes on, with both sides drawn from emo-
tion and selfish motives. A decision may be reached to accommo-
date both'thoughts on the matter, but it won't be easy.

Round-Up 9
By Jack Harper



Florida Legislators passed only one major bill last week before Gov. .
Lawton Chiles-threatening a veto--extended the call through Wednes-
day because he felt they had not hit his target of a 20 percent reduction
in workers' compensation premiums.
Both houses voted out the same tax refunds of $5000 for each
saved job up to a $2 million maximum per year for defense contractors
who stay in or come to Florida to convert factories to civilian uses now
that the Cold War is over. \ I : I
Senate President Pat Thomas, D-Quincy, called it quits late Friday
when joint conference negotiators couldn't decide on how much money
should be spent to hold juveniles who commit crimes with guns and
how severe penalties should be for kids who carry guns.
'Key committee members were back in town Monday negotiating on
the gun bill and explaining numbers on the cuts in workers' compensa-
^ tion premiums they said will amount to 25 percent, even if Gov. Chiles
doesn't realize it.
Tuesday, the full House and Senate were back in session charged
with getting out the juvenile gun and workers' comp bills by midnight
Wednesday. Legislators last week worked out a ground-breaking home
insurance bill that could save the policies for most Floridians facing
cancellation threats after Hurricane Andrew. The House approved the
plan Friday by a 108 to 1 vote. Senate leaders had approved it in princi-
pal and were ready to adopt it early this week.
Centerpiece of the legislation is a state-run catastrophe fund set up
from insurance payments that property owners pay. Legislators and in-
strance companies insist the fund will not bring higher premiums.
If Chiles signs the measure as expected, Allstate insurance said it
will be able to keep 90 percent of the 300,000 homeowners it planned to
drop after Hurricane Andrew.
In other capitol news last week: .
STATE LAWYERS urged the Florida Supreme Court to delay a con-
stitutional amendment that caps property tax increases on Florida
homeowners.,
Voters a year ago approved the so-called Save Our Homes amend-
ment. Since then, the Department of Revenue and Lee County Property
Appraiser Ken Wilkinson have fought over when the cap becomes effec-
tive. The state wants it delayed until 1995.
Wilkinson, who spent seven years promoting the cap, wants it to
become effective immediately. "Any delay in enforcing the cap could cost
homeowners millions of dollars in tax savings," Wilkinson said.
REP. TIM JAMERSON, D-St. Petersburg, said he will run for Com-
missioner of Education if present commissioner Betty Castor is named
president of the University of South Florida in Tampa, even if Gov. Law-
ton Chiles appoints Lt. Gov. Buddy MacKay to run the education post
until he finds a replacement in the event Castor wins the job.
BOB CRAWFORD, agriculture commissioner, stretched a "DUMP
NAFTA" banner across the north end 6f the first floor of the Capitol dur-
ing this special session. State property is not supposed to be used for
politics. Incidentally, "DUMP" means "defeat unfair Mexican pact". NAF-
TA, you remember of course, means North American Fair Trade Agree-
ment.

Parents Make The Difference
Believe it or not, kids some-
times have trouble "hearing" a
compliment spoken directly to
them. But when they overhear
you talking about what a good job
they did in cleaning their room,
or how much they've improved in
spelling, they'll believe what they
hear. And that will make them
work even harder.
A secret some parents have
discovered is to plan times when
their child can "accidentally-on-
purpose" overhear something
nice.

High School
By Larry A. Mathes

On to Thanksgiving
Homecoming has come and gone, but not before a large group
of alumni returned to visit the old homestead and enjoy and excel-
lent lunch. It's a lot of work, but our crowd has grown each year.
Unfortunately. rain kept our game crowd under wraps, and forced
some activities to be shortened.; Seniors Tammy Davis and Roy Lee
Carter were crowned Queen and King at the dance, after it'was de-
cided, the field was too wet for half-time festivities. Door decoration
prizes were captured by room 3, Ms. Grace (first); rm. 17, E. Bidwell
(second); and rm. 10, E. Gaskin (third). Honorable mention went to,
the health team entry.
The donkey basketball day is behind us, as well as several oth-
er fund raisers. Now, we move on the Thanksgiving, hopefully with
no more Interruptions.
Congratulations go to the :the Gator Band for earning recogni-
tion at the Florida Band Masters Marching Band contest at Tommy
Oliver Stadium in Panama City. They earned a 2 rating, only one
notch from the top.
WHS student Chris Spann was featured in the Florida Private
Industry Council Magazine as one of their JTPA success stories.
Success in this program has turned Chris from a potential drop out
into a potential productive employee. This program is money well
spent. Great work, Chris!
The annual ASVAB test offered by the military will be given to
designated students on November 16. This test is very helpful for
students who are unsure What their'vocational interests might be.
Itis- not- necessary to be interested in the trillitary to benefit'from-'
the test. i ...., 1 T .-. ,
The tragic loss of three youig boys to a house fire last weekend
points out how suddenly tragedyican strike all of us. including stu-
dents. Unfortunately, students are convinced that nothing will hap-
pen to them, no matter how many things some manage to involve
themselves in. Hunting season, winter, reckless operation of a vehi-
cle, underage drinking-just a fev things that always result in a few
of our students being in serious accidents.

Divorced

May be

Eligible for

S,S. Benefits

Are you divorced? Did you
know that divorced women and
men may be eligible to receive So-
cial Security benefits on the
record of their former spouse?
To qualify for benefits as a di-
Vorced spouse, you must:
*Be at least 62; and
*have been married to your
spouse for at least 10 years: and
*are currently married.
Your former spouse must be:
*at least 62; and
*receiving Social Security re-
tirement of disability benefits.
;You can also get benefits if
your former spouse Is eligible for
retirement benefits but not actu-
ally receiving them, if you. have
been divorced for two years or
more. If your ex-spouse was re-
ceiving retirement benefits before
the divorce, the two year period
doesn't apply.
If your own retirement benefit
is higher than what you could re-
ceive on your ex-husband's
record, you will be paid only your
retirement benefits.
If your former spouse is de-
ceased;, you may be eligible for
Social Security benefits on his or
her record if you're 60 or older. If
you have a disability, you can get
benefits as early as 50. In either
case, your marriage must have
lasted 10 years. You can receive
divorced widow(ers) benefits at
any age if you are caring for your
former spouse's child who is un-
der 17 years old or disabled. The
10 year marriage rule does not
apply in these cases.
If you remarry before age 60,
you cannot get Social Security
from an ex-spouse unless that
subsequent marriage also ends.
But if your ex-spouse remarries,
you may still be eligible for bene-
fits on his or her record. However,
you are not eligible for divorced
widow(ers) benefits if your own
retirement benefit is higher.


If you are a divorced spouse
who is 60 or older (or over 50 but
disabled), the benefits you receive
will not affect the payments made
to other survivors receiving bene-
fits on your ex-spouse's record.
If you have any questions
concerning your eligibility for di-
vorced spouse's benefits, you may
call Social Security's toll-free
number, 1-800-772-1213, or visit
your local Social Security office.

Information received through
the Wildlife Alert hotline let to
608 arrests in the first six,.
months of 1993. Wildlife Alert, a
24-hour phone line operated by -
the Florida Game and Fresh Wa-
ter Fish Commission, enables,
sportsmen and nature lovers .to
report illegal hunting, fishing and
environmental law 'violations di-
rectly to wildlife authorities. The
program was established in 1979.,
and, since that time, callers have.
helped make nearly 13,000 ar-'.
rests.
One of the phone calls re-
ceived in 1993 resolved the case
involving 38 pelicans which had
been bludgeoned to death along
Florida's East Coast earlier this'
year.
"A Wildlife Alert caller provid-.
ed information that let to an ar-,
rest," Inspector Kyle Hill. GFC Di-
vision of Law Enforcement. said.
"Three more men were cited with
killing pelicans illegally after we .
received a tip from another caller..


The tipster, who witnessed the,
crime, had recorded the violation
video." .
Wildlife Alert offers rewards
ranging from $25 to $1,000 for
information leading to an arrest.
The reward money comes from
charitable donations and court-
'qrdered contributions to the
fund.
"We've paid out approximate-
ly $200,000 in rewards since
1979, but most people who 'report
violation don't do it for the mon-
ey. They just want to help," Hill
said. "Only 40 callers that con-
tributed information this year re-
quested a reward.
Persons who witness wildlife
law violations or suspect illegal
wildlife activities are 'encouraged
to call Wildlife Alert at the follow-
ing number, Northeast Region, 1-
880-342-8105. "
80Cadler who provide i Iforma-
tion leading to an arrest can re-
