the Christmas Shopping Season
Port St. Joe Merchants are opening the Christmas sea-
son this year with an all-day festival in conjunction with
the annual Christmas parade on Saturday, December 4.
according to Tonya Nixon, Festival and Parade chairman.
"We wanted to provide the people of this part of the
state with something besides just a Christmas parade to
begin the season this year," Nixon said. "As the result of a
lot of planning, we have a Christmas Festival in the mak-
ing. There will be something for everyone from 10 in the
morning, lasting until the big parade that afternoon at
4:30 and a Christmas tree lighting ceremony at 6:30
p.m.," she said.
This will be the 32nd consecutive year for the Port St.
Joe Christmas parade but the first year of the Festival.
The activities will be centered in the downtown area from
Highway 98 to Williams Avenue and Frst Street to Fifth
Street.
The Festival portion of the special day will feature en-
tertainment, singing, food and activities for all ages. An
antique car show, pony rides, candy, crafts, Christmas
carols, antiques, a Christmas maze, a parade, the lighting
of the tree and pictures taken of children with Santa
Claus all day long, will be features of the Festival.
Port St. Joe Merchants invite you to come have a
wonderful time and truly get in the Christmas sprit.
They'll assure you a "Merry Christmas" start on the holi-
day season.


Lighthouse' Utilities


Announces Plans

To Extend Service

Installing Water Mains for Simmons
Bayou to Treasure Bay Lodge Area
A central water system, providing treated potable water for
the Simmons Bayou area was announced as a definite possibili-
ty this week by Lighthouse Utilities of south Gulf County.
According to John Thorpe, manager of the utility, it has
plans to begin construction of a service, system to furnish the
water supply by late February of next year. "Currently, we are
checking the acceptability of the service to get some idea of how
many people wish to hook on to a central, treated, safe water
supply," he said.
Thorpe said plans are to lay a six-inch water main north
from Treasure Bay Lodge to the Simmons Bayou bridge and in-
stall a loop to the St. Joseph Bay Country Club property.
'The area is building up and needs a water system,'" said Jay
Rish, assistant manager of Lighthouse. 'We are currently fur-
nishing treated water from two well points to St. Joseph Penin-
stla and as far south as Money Bayou," he said.
"We're, not new to furnishing water in this vicinity," Thorpe
said. "We've already been through the times of finding out the
difficulties of providing water to the beach area and are commit-
ted to serving our customers with a quality product. We put in a
second well a few years ago to enhance the dependability of the
system and it has made a real quality operation of our utility,"
he said.
PUBLISHING QUESTIONNAIRE
Lighthouse Utilities is running a questionnaire in this week's
issue of The Star to sound out their acceptance in their new pro-
posed operational area.
,The new water system should be a boon to prospective build-
ers in the area with the relief it will offer for stiff septic tank in-
stallation regulations in Simmons Bayou and south to Treasure
Bay.- .
With. the installation of the water supply system, practically
all of southern Gulf County will have a central water system
available to home owners.

the high cost of patriotism and
love of,, freedom. Bo Williams, a
member of the Legion, gave the
students a first-hand report of
the horrors of war and stressed it
is the duty of an American to
serve if called upon.
Williams told how warfare
had affected him personally-of
several of his friends in service
who had met death, defending
this country.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars
conducted their usual Veterans'
Day program in front of the Gulf
County Courthouse with an audi-
ence of veterans and families of
veterans in attendance.
,Sgt. Sidney Dufferty of Tyn-

gathering, telling how Veterans'
Day was first originated .74 years
ago'with the signing of the armis-
tice on the 11th hour of the 11th
day 6f the 11 th month, in France,
to end the conflict of World War I.
It was originally known as Armis-
tice Day.

Real Clout

THE "GREAT DEBATE" HAS been held and it's still a toss-
up as to who won! All of which goes to prove that neither man
was totally convincing his argument had more merit than his op-
ponent. Given the subject matter and the facts disclosed by both
men [that part of the two arguments you could construe as
'fact'], we would declare vice-president Al Gore the winner.
We haven't "bought" NAFTA, yet. That's because we haven't
read it and don't know the pitfalls which lie in wait for Joe Citi-
zen, the local tinsmith. But, given the stated reason for the bill's
existence, it makes sense ... a product which we have found to
be sadly lacking in Washington these days. That's why we are
suspicious of the bill, because the way it isdescribed, it makes
sense.
ROSS PEROT DIDN'T give one concrete reason why we
should be opposed. He gave several examples of what he, per-
sonally, saw because he opposes both political parties' leaders,
but we didn't hear one single statistic or example of how NAFTA
would be bad for the United States. But then, vice-president
Gore didn't do much better in favor of the bill, even though his
arguments were not reduced to one line cliches. The black and
white facts were lacking on both sides.
Several nights prior to the "great debate", Lee Iacocca was on
Larry King's show with a much better case in favor of NAFTA
than either Gore or Perot gave for either side.
We'll admit, however, we don't have the answer to the treaty
and we're not persuaded by either so-called argument.
WE DO HAVE AN opinion about NAFTA which isn't based on
either presentation, nor is it based on the support of President
Clintonor any member of Congress.
What do we use to base our opinion on? Well, we'll tell you. It
doesn't do much to convince us that NAFTA will move all the
manufacturing out of the United States, when the one's arguing
against the treaty drive a Japanese or German automobile,
watch a Japanese television, or listen to a Japanese radio, or
use a Japanese copy machine, typewriter, telephone, etc.; the
farmer who weeps about the future of produce and fruit produc-
tion as he drives his Kubota tractor over his fields, and not think
one thing about it. We've given up a large chunk of the automo-
bile business and virtually all the electronics industry, without
benefit of a treaty, and the nation's still solvent.
We can't get excited about how much damage NAFTA will do
us as a nation when the auto worker Iwho opposes the treaty so
vigorously] drives his Toyota or Mitsubishi to work and parks it
in the parking lot of General Motors. Ford or Chrysler to go to
work making those products he scorns so much.
IF WE WERE GOING to make a recommendation, it would
be to adopt NAFTA. but as we said, we don't kilow enough about
the language in the bill to oppose it or support it. Even if we
were four-square behind the idea of the bill, the language may
completely turn us against it. -
It does make sense, however, that we deal with our neigh-
bors, if that is all the bill is putting us in a position to do. We
will not be in favor of giving Canada or Mexico a favored position
from which to do business, and you know our nation has done
just that more than once.
It just makes sense to include the entire continent of North
America and South America in a trade agreement. It would make
a group with real clout in the trade world.


SA Basic Need

WE HERE IN FLORIDA have more to worry about than the
North American Free Trade Agreement-as if that wasn't enough
to worry about-we have Workman's Compensation insurance to
give us moments of anxiety as well. It seems as if the Florida
Legislature is about as anxious to rectify the problems with
Workman's Comp as the Congress is to deal with NAFTA.
A Gulf County delegation which went to Tallahassee to meet
with our legislators on the matter met with the vision of one of
our Legislators sneaking out the back door of his office and an-
other not even in Tallahassee where important decisions on the
matter were being made.
EXPERIENCES SUCH AS that don't make us feel any too
comfortable about the future of this important piece of legisla-
tion. It's important to some of our people because the premiums
are crowding in on the difference between profit and loss. The
employee needs adequate protection against on-the-job injury as
well. So, you see. this isn't your every-day social club bill we're
talking about here. To some employers it's a question of whether
he can afford to stay in business or not. To his employees. it's a
matter of whether or not he has a job to go to.
Workman's Compensation is a matter which needs our undi-
vided attention because it is legislation of such a basic need.

had put "old Dick out to pasture."
That made no sense to me
cause we kept him up at the
barn most of the time. We had to
fed that dang mule every dayl It
was about time we got some work
out of him.
"Yog, dad won't care. Besides,
the exercise wilr do him good."
.Yogi, Buddy, Prentiss Ray,
and some of us had hit upon a
sure fire, can't miss, brilliant
money making idea. It came to us
walking home from the picture
show the Saturday before. We all
were going on about wishing we
could go to that Dude Ranch way
out In California and help Roy
and Dale and Pat and Bullet out
with the bad guys ....


A Dude Ranch! We should
have thought of this years ago.
We'll charge 'em a quarter a day
to come out to the ranch and be
real cowboys ....
It didn't take no time to turn
the barn into a ranch house. We
just dropped a few bales of hay
down from the loft for furniture,
laid some blankets over the stalls
to make "rooms", shooed the
chickens out of the "house", and
hung us tip a sign on the front
gate declaring to the whole world
the Flying Double RR Bar X
Ranch was in business.
We didn't have a Plymouth
Station Wagon but we could haul
our guests out to the ranch in the
corn wagon hitched to that Far-
mall. Maybe the dudes would see
the wooden sides and think they
were in a station wagon ....
Didn't any of us have a horse.
Listen, as Prentiss 'Ray pointed
out, "Y-Y-You c-c-can't have a D-
D-Dude R-R-Ranch without a h-
h-horse."
Yogi stopped and Dick obe-
diently did the same. We all si-
lently inspected our "horse".
"Why's he got all that gray
around his nose?"
"He doesn't even look like a
horse."
"H-H-Has h-h-he gone to s-sl-
sleep?"
"The number one lead horse
of the famous Flying Double RR
Bar X Ranch can't be named
'Dick'."
'You're right."
We settled on Fireball.
"Has he ever had a saddle on
him?" Buddy had brought up a
good point.
"I'm sure he has." Well, I was
almost sure. "I've heard Dad talk
about riding him to town after
he'd spent the whole day plow-
ing-he's an all-purpose mule."
"H-H-Horse." Prentiss Ray
corrected me.
We had an old rope halter
and a bridle but we had to walk
all the way down to Charlotte
Melton's house to borrow one of
her dad's old saddles. We were
serious about this dude ranch.
"Kes, do yobu think- we could'
call ole Duke out from under the%
house to play Bullet?"
I whistled and Duke came
a'running. That old hound dog
didn't look nothing like Roy's dog,
but then we were pretending that
a mule was a horse and that our
barn was in California....
We saddled up.
"Who wants to ride first?"
We all just stood there. Dick,
I mean Fireball. when you got up:
next to him was pretty big.
"He was very gentle when we
cinched him up."
"Everybody knows that mules'
can't run, they're just plow ani-
mals."
"I don't think they can buck
either."
'They're really tame."
We had a lot of talk, but no.,,
volunteers.
"1-1-1I11 t-t-try 1-1-it."
We had to lead Fireball over
to the gate post so Prentiss Ray

Next Time I Bet Frenchie Buys Completely Finished Chairs


FRENCHIE AND I have been
married nearly 47 years and we
'had never done it before.
That's a fact. We had per-
formed a lot of tasks together In
those 47 years, obviously, but we
had never done that one before,
so we didn't know what to expect
in the way of results.
They might be pleasing and
they might not be. We were going
into this project with our eyes
closed, figuratively speaking.
All it took was a little time, a
little cooperation, a few supplies
and the opportunity.
So, the other evening we
found ourselves with a little time
on our hands and I sidled up to
her and said, "U-h-h-h do you
want to do it?"
Frenchie, who happened to
be washing up a few dishes at the
time, politely ignored me and
went on washing dishes. I decid-
ed she didn't want to "do it" and
ambled back over to my chair and
sat down with the Tallahassee


SETAOIN SHRDLU


Democrat to read the paper.
BUT SUDDENLY, THINGS
changed! Frenchie laid down her
dish cloth,- wiped her hands,
pushed at her hair and started
unbuttoning her shirt and said,
'Well come on, if you want to do
it right nowl"
So, I got up, and went out to
my shop to get the can of oak
stain and bring in the four chairs
and after she changed clothes, we
set to work staining the chairs;
something we had never done be-
fore.
They turned out pretty good
for novices, after about a week of


staining and rubbing and stain-
ing, and rubbing and coating with
polyurethane and rubbing some
more and coating with polyure-
thane some more.
They're right presentable.
AS A PRELUDE TO this,
Frenchie came home about three
weeks ago, dragging these unfin-
ished straight back chairs and
plopped them down saying, ."How
about helping me finish these?"
.I'm not much at painting. I
will do other tasks about the
house, but painting definitely is
not my hidden talent. So, I said,
'Why did you buy these chairs?"


-right off. "WVe have enough chairs
for two people to sit on and we
don't need any more,"
"Well, I gave our extra chairs
to Bill to furnish his dining area
in his Tallahassee apartment and
these are to replace those and a
couple more for Bill," she said.
Bill being a grandson attending
school in Tallahassee.
'Well, why didn't you get fin-
ished ones?" I asked. '
- "Because these cost less"
was the curt answer. "I wanted to
save money."
So, we set out a few days ago
to "save money".
FIRST OFF, THE difference
between painted and, unpainted
chairs isn't all- that much. Keep
that thought., in mind as we
progress through this tale.
I then went to the hardware
store and purchased a can of oak
stain-I already had the can of,
polyurethane-sopne mineral spir-
its and 'some' of thoge plastic


sponge brushes. Ken Murphy had
told me at the last Crafts Festival
that they were better than brush-
es in applying stain.
Total supplies bill: $16.42
plus tax. That came out to about
$4.10 a chair and we hadn't even
opened a paint can. yet, nor fig-
ured in the polyurethane nor
the labor.
I came back in the house to.
.find newspapers,, spread all over.
the floor: and a couple .of chairs
waiting to be stained. We're going
to do this "staining" in the den,
just inside, the back porch.
Frenchie dipped her first
brush into the stain and lifted it
out toward the chair, dripping
Sustain all over her, the floor and a.
few drops on the chair. "This stuff
is as thin as water!" she ex-
claimed.
'Yes, and the label also says
'you are to use it in a well-
ventilated workplace not in
the well heated, comfortable and
formerly clean den," I said.


I THOUGHT IT best to get
away from the scene of the crime
so I took the first stained chair
and retreated to the workshop
out in the back yard to apply the
urethane in private.
We got the job done, using
two cans of stain on the four
chairs. There's one can on the
chairs and another can on the
floor. I'm holding my breath until
we pick up all those newspapers
spread out, to see how much ran
under and how much soaked
through. I'm thinking we no long-
er have a floor covered with Arm-
strong floor. covering containing a
quarry tile pattern. It's probably
something like a tile quarry with
a felled oak lying across it.
But, despite the hours of la-
bor, the expense of materials and
the "learning process" of the job,
we have four right nice looking
chairs out of the deal.
I'm still figuring on the total
cost.

I Would Have Never Known
I For several years I couldn't help but notice him. Although he
was young, he was large in statue; a big, lumbering boy who didn't
talk much but always had a friendly smile and a warm hello for me.
He worked with my daughter and I always thought, for no other
reason than my instincts let me, that if any trouble ever started
with anyone in the workplace (especially with the women), that he
would be the one to take care of the problem. Long ago I learned
that still water runs deep and fast.
Although I didn't know his name, I often wondered what the fu-
ture held for him. He seemed such a nice young man, and each
time I saw him he was quietly doing his work, not saying anything
to anyone. I, silently and to myself, always wished him the best in
life because he reminded me a lot of myself when I was young.
Many times I thought that one day I would find out who he was and
what his circumstances were. I never did.
Yesterday, however, I found a copy of an article on our kitchen
table. The article, written :for some unknown paper, told me all I
needed to know about the young man I had observed for the past
several years, although I didn't know it was he when I read the arti-
cle.
When I asked family members who the author was, my daugh-
ter was the first to reply; "Dad, he's the young, man who worked
with me when I was working at the Piggly Wiggly; you know, the
tall, quiet one who was always so nice."
Her brief description hit home like the ringing of a bell on a
cold, quiet, winter morning. Of course I remembered! And who else
could it be? He's the man I thought he was, a young man whose
face and presence told the story that was so vividly portrayed in the
article before me. I read it again.
The article, Newspaper Smell Evokes Memories, was published
on October 25 and was a poignant story of life: Life that few of us
know. The article painted a vivid picture of life between a father and
son and the struggle for survival during some very depressing and
adverse times. At the time, his father was extremely ill and finances
were low; it was a struggle just to keep the family fed and housed.
The father and son delivered newspapers to keep the home fires lit
and burning.
He unashamedly told of mornings when he and his father
would arise at 1 a.m. and go to meet the truck that brought the'
newspapers and how they would "run the route", throwing papers
until it was time to go home to get ready for school. He told of prob-
lems they encountered, like the morning the car slipped into a ditch
and he had to awaken a neighbor to use the phone to call for help.
In graphic detail he told of the bond that was created between
he and his father and the hurt he felt when his dad passed away a
year or so later. The smell of a newspaper, he said, reminded him of
that bond of love and shall forever more.
Talk about evoking memories! It's the same feeling I get when I
smell freshly ploughed ground or the smell of a barnyard or freshly\
split kindling.
My hat is off and my heart goes out to this young man. His artl-'
cle is worthy of much more than just notice: It is a colorful, poig-
nant picture of life that only a true artist could paint. It's extremely
hard to paint a picture with words.
I only wish I could write as well as Jeffrey Newberry.

Proud To Be Here!


I am a new resident of this
great City of Port St. Joe, moving
here a year ago. I am proud to be
here and love it dearly. I recently
attended your Veteran's Day cere-
monies at Port St. Joe High
School. There was a good turnout
of veterans of all wars and the
bleachers were full of high school'
students-a beautiful group of
young people-who appeared to
be appreciative of all those vete-
rans.
A veteran's main duties were

City Gathers Information


For Cremation Urn Storage


The City of Port St. Joe may
soon supply facilities to store cre-
mation urns, along with conven-
tional grave sites and its mauso-
leum at Holly Hill Cemetery if it
can come up with an arrange-
ment which is acceptable to the
Commission.
On request of the Commis-
sion, Steve Daniels of Daniels
Memorials of Crestview was
present to answer questions of
the Commission and offer advice
for the type facility to install.
Daniels said cremation was
becoming more and more popular
as a preparation method for the
deceased. "There are now 35% of


deceased persons in Florida cre-
mated as a final disposition,"
Daniels said. He was recommend-
ing the City provide facilities for a
limited number of cremation urns
at Holly Hill. He said such facili-
ties are selling at $1,000 to
$1,800 in places such as Talla-
hassee, Panama City and other
area cities with facilities.
The Commission. was reluc-
tant to saddle the citizens with
such an expensive alternative,
and even Daniels admitted these
.cities were "charging too much.
You can do it in perfectly digni-
fied manner for approximately
$800 per plot." He outlined a plan
of a 48-urn depository in a sec-

public use. With First Union's ownership came additional offers,
which prompted the bank to offer it to the City of Port St. Joe to
continue its public land status. The City has been offered the
land at considerably below appraised value.
With purchase of the property imminent, the deal will give
the City ownership of all that property lying west of Highway 98
to St. Joseph Bay in this particular block. The piece lying difect-
ly between the Baltzell Avenue and the Bay was just recently ac-
quired 'by the City in a land swap deal for the old City Ware-
house property across Highway 71 from the Courthouse.


"Respect your country; be proud
of it, and if need be, which I pray
never happens, be ready to de-
fend and protect It as we did; it is
the "greatest {country) in the'
world."
I say to all veterans thank
you, may God bless each and eve-_
ry one of you, and may all those
who lost their lives rest in peace.
I urge all veterans who don't-
belong to join and support your
local American Legion. It's a won-
derful organization who does
great community services and
can use your help.
Thank you,
Robert C. Storar, Jr.


We're All Americans


On November 11, it was. my
privilege to attend the Veteran's
Day ceremonies at the Port St.
Joe High School. It was a truly
,beautiful celebration of the men
and women who served and still
serve in the Armed Forces of our
nation. I always get goose bumps
when I hear our national an-
them-I always have-even as a
teenager, I got goose bumps when
.1 heard the high school chorus
sing Proud to Be An American,
and I got goose bumps when they
read the names of Gulf Countians
who died in the service of their
country.
Lieutenant Commander
(USN, Ret.) Jim McLeod said that
all veterans, no matter how old or
how infirm, would gladly answer
their country's call if need be-
and do what they could. I believe
he's right, but I wondered as I sat
there if our youth of today would
be so gallant. I watched as some
of the students moved around in
their seats, talked among them-
selves, and seemed bored. I over-
heard one student say she was
tired of standing up. I heard one
student say, "I am African, not
American." Let me tell you, my
child, that all of us are American
by birth and the grace of God. My
ancestorswere from Scotland and
Ireland, and 'my husband's from
Poland and Germany, but we are
very proud to say that no matter
what our heritage, we are Ameri-
can.
Joe served in the Korean con-
flict as a Marine-I'm very proud
of that, and so is he! I My hat
goes off to the students who sat
respectfully and listened-the
ROTC students who escorted Joe
to a seat of honor. I was proud of


each man who spoke and every
veteran who stood as their
branch was recognized. It was a
moving ceremony and my heart
was full. Proud to be' an Ameri-
can? You bet I aml I always have
been and always will bel
God Bless America.

The Highland View Elemen-

more and more popular.
Commissioner Johnny Linton
said there are approximately 15
cremated remains being brought
into the area annually, from other
locations and procedures being
selected by Port St. Joe people.
The Commission asked Dan-
iels to provide the City with a
drawing of a cremation urn stor-

costs and alternatives for con-

along the street, under the
trees and new lighting will give
a more peaceful, restful and
feeling of safety and security,

Planners have run into prob-
lems of an infrastructure nature,
which will cost more than the re-
vitalization process, but which
City engineers and planners have
found is necessary for downtown
Port St. Joe.
First, drainage must be given
some attention. During heavy
rains, water runs into 'some'
stores near the Fourth Street in-'
tersection, due to the street being
too high. That situation will,'
hopefully, be. corrected before.
cosmetic work begins. Sidewalks
will be re-furbished, with brick
inserts being installed at intervals
containing plaques of historical
facts of the old city.
All in all, the street will take'
on a completely new look which is
planned to be pleasing to the eye
and attract people to the down-
town area.
Prugh says it will probably be
the middle of next year before the
City can hope to attract, any
grants of any kind to help with fi-,
nancing but that the program is
right on schedule to begin then.
The entire process is expect-.
ed to take four to five years, doing;
the work in increments.

The entire county has been saddened with the deaths
caused by trailer fires this past year. Each family living in a
trailer needs to be extremely vigilant to avoid a fire that can
wipe out the family.
Most deaths in fires occur by suffocation from fumes and
smoke. With this in mind, it was decided to see if we could
increase the number of smoke detectors in trailers housing
children.
Last week's The Star carried the offer by Nemours Chil-
dren's Clinic to furnish the smoke detectors with an offer by
the fire department to install them. Thus far, we have had
only ELEVEN (11) requests for detectors.
It is unlikely that only eleven families with children liv-
ing in trailers are without smoke detectors. Please be knowl-
edgeable for your friends. If they live in a trailer and do not
have a smoke detector, see that they call for the offer most
people would not refuse. Call Nemours Children's Clinic
(227-7100),or Volunteer Fire Department (227-1713) after 3
Sp.m.

Maps Being Prepared

Of City of Port St. Joe


A Georgia-based company is
beginning the process this week
of remapping the City of Port St.
Joe. But don't look for the typical
city map.
Mark Yost, of Town Square
Graphics, of Roswell, Ga., is cur-
rently in the process of selling the
map to area businesses and or-
ganizations. When completed, the
map will be a four-color process
print of an original hand-painted
caricature map of the city.
Yost said his company plans
to have 5,000 of the maps print-
ed. The maps will be given to the
Port St. Joe High School Band,
which in turn will sell them as a
fund raiser for new equipment
and music for the organization.
The Port St. Joe/Gulf County
Chamber of Commerce also will
receive a number of the maps to
give to visitors to the city.
'We take pictures of the
buildings and signs of each of the
participating businesses, and our
artists draw a caricature of it arid
place it on the map," Yost ex-
plained. 'This is a one-time thing.
But it will be a permanent picture
of what the town looked like in
1993."
Town Square Graphics has
produced the colorful 18-inch by


nd illustrators presenting their Big Books to students in Miss Mary's

Own Books
Mrs. Baxley's second grade
class at Highland View Elemen-
tary is learning first-hand how
much work goes into making a
book. From rough draft to final
copy, these second graders have
put their all into making big
books for Miss Mary's first grade
class: "I liked the .title Kiss a Pig
and the story. We read Matt and
Rags a lot."-Matt Hunter. 'The
books are hard to read but we
tried anyway. Everyone wanted to
read them. Jen's Pet is my favor-
ite,"-Anna Craft.
Several of the students have
written, illustrated, and pub-
lished their own hard back books.

It appeared as if the Marian-
na Bulldogs would send the
Sharks back home with a drub-
bing for their final game of the
season last Friday night, but a
rally in the second half handed
the Bulldogs a narrow one-point
defeat to chew on. A pair of Shark
touchdowns in the third period
earned the Port St. Joe team a
22-21 victory.
It appeared as if the Sharks'
were on hand for a sound defeat
as the game opened up with Wal-
ter Robinson breaking three tack-
les to run the opening kick-off
back for the Bulldogs' first of
three touchdowns in the first
half.
The 'Dogs were driving as the
second period opened and the
running of Robinson and slick
ball handling of tiny quarterback
Jeremy Millirons had them
knocking at the door on the
Shark three yard line. Kendrick \
Addison shut down the threat
with a stop at the three, with the
Sharks taking over.
The Sharks couldn't move out
of the .shadow of their own goal
posts and kicked the ball away.
On first down Millirons broke
three tackles and hit Geoff
McKenzie for a TD and a 14 point
lead over the Sharks.

SHARKS COME BACK
But the game wasn't over yet!
The Sharks came roaring
back and moved 61 yards into
the Bulldog end zone on just six
plays-one of them a 30 yard aer-
ial to Desmond Baxter and a
strike to Zyris Hill in the end zone
to put Shark points on the board.
Antwione Allen ran the extra
points, and the score was now
14-8, Bulldogs.
Then, with the half running
down, the Sharks almost ran into
more adversity than they could
overcome. Jamaail Fenn signaled
a fair. catch on a Bulldog punt,
and as he moved into position to
field the ball, he slipped and fell.
The ball hit Fenn on the shoulder
and rolled into, the end zone
where the Bulldogs, covered it for
their final score of the game.
SECOND HALF
Things changed in the second,
half. The Sharks came out of the
dressing room with a new look for
their fans. Fenn brought the

When your dentist looks into
your mouth, he puts all his pow-
ers of detection to work. Tooth
decay or unhealthy gums are
easy to spot. But he has to look
closer than the obvious. Mirrors,
lights, x-rays, and other instru-
ments help. So do his years of
training and practice.
Your dentist is a trained
medical observer. He'll be able
to spot any suspicious lesions,
lumps, discolored areas, ;or
sores that might be malignant.
Early detection saves lives.
Lips, tongue, cheek's-any
part of the oral cavity are proper
sites for inspection. If there's
any suspicion of oral cancer, a
biopsy or sample of the tissue
under suspicion can be sent to a

THE STAR. PORT ST. JOE. FL THURSDAY. NOV. 18. 1993 PAGE 1B


Capitol NeWS
Round-Up
By Jack Harper


Florida legislators postponed new taxes for bootcamps for juvenile
criminals and didn't put much teeth in a ban on guns for teens, but
they created a state-run catastrophe fund to hold-off insurance cancel-
lations on homeowner and cut workers' compensation premiums for
businesses.
All in all, it was probably a B-plus performance for both the legisla-
tors and Gov. Lawton Chiles. You'd have thought it was an A-plus from
the broad smiles on the faces of Chiles and Sen. President Pat Thomas
during their celebration meeting on the Senate floor in the special ses-
sion. Both need successes badly, Chiles to come up in his poll ratings
and Thomas to get one more Democratic seat in the Senate so he can
have a full two-year term as president.
The problems with the session, of course, is that it didn't solve any
of the issues. It took a "nice try" whack at them and then-perhaps
wisely-postponed serious consideration for the regular session that be-
gins in February.
There is no doubt that workers' benefits are going to take a hit un-
der the touted but uncertain 23.6 percent reduction that may make it
possible for businesses to hire more workers and boost the slowly recov-
ering economy, but don't count on it. Efforts to do that in the past have
failed each time. There will probably be some lower costs. Lawyers, un-
der the bill, will get lower fees. It will be harder for injured workers and
their lawyers to "doctor shop" to find a medical opinion that the worker
* is too badly Injured to work.
HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE
The homeowner insurance fund, which will be financed by policy
owners at a $500 million a year clip, will help cover losses if another
Hurricane Andrew occurs. Insurance premiums for.coastal homeowners
can be expected to rise dramatically, but their policies will not be can-
celled because of the new law. Some two million Floridians were in dan-
ger of losing their insurance policies in the aftermath of Andrew.
JUVENILE CRIME
The crackdown on juvenile crime that many Floridians are demand-
ing did not come in the special sessiofi. In fact, the message that was
supposed to be sent to the world turned out to be just a whimper. The
most punishment a hardened tough kid under 18 found carrying a gun,
say to school, is some time under community control. He may spend 21
days in detention while awaiting trial if the judge finds him a danger to
society. If found guilty, he'd get five days in detention and 100 hours of
community service. His parents could be required to attend a parenting
class.
The penalties are hardly enough to straighten out a hard case teen-
ager. but could help one just starting out and they are more than what
the law previously provided.
Legislators hedged their bets on the expenses by putting an April
15 next year date on when the law goes into effect. It can be changed in
the February regular session and may because it became apparent in
the special session that the public is interested in fixing the juvenile
justice system that is soaring out of control.
Both sides of the bootcamp issue Is being aired within the capital
freeway in Taxhassee. The city of Tallahassee commission and county
commissioners have sent a message to the state they want a bootcamp
in Tallahassee. but they want a lot of state financing. Meanwhile,
Franklin County has come up with a proposal for a bootcamp in a jail
they can no longer afford to use and is vacant.
IN OTHER STATE CAPITOL NEWS LAST WEEK:
An expected shortfall in sales tax collections that could have
amounted to as much as $200 million did not materialize. New predic-
tions are a drop of only $16.7 million for the current year and $15.1
million for the next fiscal year. In spite of fears of a tourist cutback due
-.to--the.c.r.ne newsT-hEedrops---are -negligible- In an-expected-$85- billion-
budget.
Tallahassee. with two state universities and thousands of state
workers, is considered a liberal stronghold in North Florida. So the re-
action against the firing of a white professor at predominantly black
Florida A & M for telling some some members of his class they had a
"nigger mentality" comes as a surprise. The daily Tallahassee Democrat
newspaper and several prominent professors at across town Florida
State University are taking exception of the firing of FAMU Public Rela-
tions Professor Gerald Gee because of the statement.
Gee said he was just tiring to make a point.
The newspaper and the FSU professors said stirring up students to
make a point is acceptable teaching. They warn that if minorities have a
right to purge those who offend them, they are giving their enemies a
weapon to eventually use against them.
The Florida Supreme Court said children may be spared the trauma
of testifying in open court about witnessing the murder of a parent in a
ruling last week. The justices said the testimony could be given in video
tapes just as the law now allows -in 'child abuse cases.

Maintain A Green


Lawn


Throughout


the Winter Months:


Florida is one of the few plac-
es in our nation where it's possi-
ble to maintain a green lawn year
round. But, to do this, we have to
use, special winter grass. This is
because most of our permanent
lawn grasses fade and lose their
color in late fall. By the time the
first frost occurs, most lawns have
turned brown. So, to keep the
lawn green, we must overseedd" it.
In this article I'll talk about
overseeding your permanent lawn
with a temporary grass, how to get
it established, and how to main-


tain it.
Several cool-season grasses
can be used for overseeding. But,
the best one for Florida is rye
grass. Annual rye grass is most
popular because the seeds germi-
nate rapidly, it grows fast, is fairly
inexpensive, and is adaptable to a
variety of growing conditions. It
does well in sun or shade, and it
tolerates close frequent mowing. If
seeded heavily, annual ryegrass
can provide a dense, beautiful
winter lawn.
Establishing a winter ryegrass

Extension Notes
-" v'- XYJ' '"

l.: C: Roy ,Lee Carter.,

lawn is fairly simple. The best
time to do, it is after the perma-
nent lawn has been turned brown
by frost. You'll have less trouble
with plant disease late in the fall,'
when temperatures are cooler.
Start by mowing the permanent
lawn extra close and raking up all
debris. Dethatching at this time is
a good idea. But,. if you can't de-
thatch, at least remove as much of
the dead grass as you can with a
rake; rake leaves, not the runners
or roots.


Next, spread the ryegrass
seeds. You'll need between live
and fifteen pounds per one thou-
sand square feet. If possible, buy
seeds that have been treated with
a fungicide. And, be sure they're
fresh and weed-free. Apply the
seeds with a fertilizer spreader. To
get the most uniform stand of rye-
grass, divide the seeds into two
applications. Sow half the seeds in
. one direction over the lawn. Then,
go back and sow the rest at right
angles to your original path. After


you spread the seeds, rake the
lawn lightly, to help the seeds get
through the permanent grass and
make contact with the soil.I
Now it's time for watering-
one of the most important steps.
The newly seeded lawn should re-
ceive light waterings once or twice
a day, until the seeds germinate.
Keep the seeds moist, but be care-
ful not to overwater. Overwatering
can wash the seeds away, and it
may add to disease problems.
Once the grass is well established,
water as needed.
The disadvantage of establish-
ing a ryegrass lawn is that you'll
have to fertilize about once a
month. The first time, use a com-


plete fertilizer-a 8-8-8 or a 10-
10-10. For all other applications,
use a nitrogen fertilizer. Always
follow the manufacturer's recom-
.,mended rates.
If you fertilize properly, the
,ryegrass lawn will grow quickly,
and you'll need to mow about
twice a week. Begin mowing as
soon as the grass is tall enough to
be cut-about one or two inches
high.
Finally, watch for a disease
problem known as pythium (pit-
ee-um)-also called damping off,
or cottony .'blight. It seems to
cause the most trouble on overwa-
tered and overfertilized ryegrass,
especially during spells of warm
weather. .

Working Smoke Detectors


Show Decline In Fatal Fires
reornoefre iclde


New figures show 33-percent
fewer working smoke detectors
were found in fatal fires last year,
State Fire Marshal and Treasurer
Tom Gallagher announced today,
These and other statistics are
found in Gallagher's annual fire
report, "Florida Fires 1992," a
document published each sum-
met that compiles fire statistics
,from departments around the
state.
'The numbers tell us a grim
story," Gallagher said. "It's fair to
conclude that at least some of
those who died in fires in this
state last year would have lived
had there been properly operating
smoke detectors in place. Use of
smoke detectors, and proper
maintenance to make sure that it
has a working, battery, is a com-
mxon sense..way to save lives. ---
Accordinggto Gallagher, of the
/' 137 people who died in- Florida
residential fires last year, 114 (83


percent) had no working smoke
detector present in their homes.
This compared to 157 residential
fire deaths in 1991, 78 (50 per-
cent) of which had no working
smoke detectors.
Last year, the Division of
State Fire Marshall began a pro-
gram to install thousands of
smoke detectors statewide free-of-
charge to needy families. This
program is funded by a grant
from the National Association of
State Fire Marshals (NASFM).
According to Gallagher. many
fire departments throughout the
state have begun similar smoke
detector installation programs. "If
you cannot afford a smoke detec-
tor, please contact your local fire
department or the State Fire Mar-
shal's Office. Through the use of
working smoke detectors, we may
help you save your home and,
your family."

Labor Relations Dept. Works

with All SJPC Subsidiaries


A facet of St. Joe Paper Com-
pany one seldom sees was un-
veiled before the Port St. Joe Ro-
tary Club Thursday. This
operation was the labor relations:
operation, which negotiates every
employee working contract in the
system.
-Wayne Pate, assistant to de-
parunent director, Charles Nor-
ton, explained some of the duties

* i "" I


of his department to the Club
Thursday.
Pate said the office negotiates
working agreements with the
company's paper mill. two rail-:
roads, three telephone companies
and 16 container plants scattered
throughout the nation. We work
up a new working agreement for
every plant. individually, every
three years.' Pate said.
But the job isn't done when
the work contract is signed. The
office then fields grievances filed
by labor throughout the system,
every day. 'Sometimes the grie-
vances are serious and complicat-
ed to solve, calling for outside ser-
vices such as a mediator or anr
"arbitrator." Pate said.


In' addition to the labor rela-
tions work, the department is
charged with staying abreast of
all changes in federal law pertain-
ing to employers and employees.
This is especially prevalent to the

Three Little Boys

They took baths. They ate cook-

little boys named A.J., Josh, and
William Finch perished in a fire.

Give Thanks!
Yes, give thanks. No matter what the situation,, you can proba-
bly give thanks that things are not worse. You don't need to look
very far to find situations in the world, in the USA, or even in your
own community that are worse than what your situation might be.
With that in mind, find a way to help someone else. One good way
is to donate to the Wewa Ministerial Association (food or cash) as
they attempt to provide some help to families in need this Thanks-
giving.
The football season closed for WHS at Apalachicola Friday night
with a 32-14 loss. Th .young Gators played tough for 3 quarters,

When you gamble to try to make things happen, they don't always
go your way. Just ask FSU-they know all about that. My original
estimate as to when our rebuilding program would show progress
was 3 years, so next year will tell how accurate my estimate was!

AAROposes Age Discrimination In


Employment Amendment: H.R. 2722


The American Association of
Retired Persons (AARP) expressed
its strong opposition to H.R.
2722, the 'Age Discfffiriation ihi
Employment Amendment of
1993.
The bill would allow state and
local governments to fire, as well


as refuse to hire, otherwise well-'
qualified persons who wish to be
police officers and firefighters.
solely because of their age. It
carves out a permanent exception
for.a class' of workers. historically
covered, by. the Age Discrimina-
tion in Employment Act. .
"This bill ..would sanction
overt and completely unjustified
age discriminatiohn'and should be.
rejected by Congress," said AARP
Executive, .Director Horace B.
Deets. .
"H.R. 2722 does notprotect
public safety because it does not
address' the 'issue of fitness
throughout the workforce of a po-
lice or fire department," Deets'


said. 'There is no basis for forcing
the retirement of a fit and compe-
tent 55-year-old when many less
fit and competent younger work-
ers remain on the job."
Numerous independent stud-
ies, including a recent study by
the FBI/Major City Chief Associa-
tion, and the experience of the
many state -and local govern-
ments that do not discriminate,
prove that physical and mental
fitness testing is the best predic-
tor of competency and fitness for
police and firefighters of all ages.
Maximum hiring ages, some as
young as 25, bear no relationship
to public safety.
"AARP urges Congress to


stand by the nation's older work-
ers and no deny the important
protections of the Age Discrimina-
tion in Employment Act ,or any
other civil rights laws to persons
who put their lives on the line to
protect us," Deets said.
AARP is the nation's leading
organization for people 50 and
older. It serves their needs and
interests through legislative advo-
cacy, research, informative pro-
grams and community services
provided by a i'etwork of local
chapters and experienced volun-
teers throughout the country. The
organization also offers members
a wide range of special benefits,
including Modern Maturity and
the monthly Bulletin.

'The-closest most people get to
their source of food is in .the aisle
of a supermarket. National
Farm-City Week, initiated 38
years ago, helps foster greater
public awareness of the contribu-
'tions of 'agricultural producers
whose .efforts keep food on Ameri-
ca's dinner table.
Thig year, Florida iFarm-City
Week ,will be observed November
.19-25, the week leading up to the
Than ksgiving holiday.
-."'Thanksgiving-is- a, natural
time to celebrate the bounty of
the, land -and to reflect on where
our food comes from and who
, grows it," Florida Agriculture
Co6%fiiilssioner Bob Craiford
said. "This celebration" offers a,
special'opportunity to recognize
.,Florida's farmers-the, men and
w, men who provide our food.
'But, we shouldn't forget that
-. while. this observance lasts only a
week, the tireless efforts of these
individuals continue year-rodnd."
The Fl0oida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Servic-
es is participating in activities to
commemorate Farm-City Week.
The Department has organized a
speakers' bureau to provide
Farm-City Week information to-
local civic organizations.
"Florida's farmers labor
e 0:t en '6^ 9.prpduce
o: -mre haan.24`0 di-ilerent crops,'
Crawford said. 'They feed this na-
tion, especially in the wintertime
when half of our country's domes-
tically produced fresh fruits and
vegetables come from Florida
so il." .. . .
Crawford said the contribu-
tions of Florida's farmers are an
important part of the state's econ-
omy. ',
"In addition to beautiful
..bchel .tor.ist attractions ,and
bustling cities, Florida is also
home to a thriving agricultural in-
dustry that generates $6' billion
in cash receipts yearly." Crawford
said. "Neither farm nor city 'can
exist in isolation, so it is itn every-
one's best interest for Florida ag-
riculture ,to remain strong and
healthy. ', 2 '
But, Crawford said, the ef-
forts of Florida's farmers often-go
unheralded to.the generalypublic.
"Florida banners labor silent-
ly, with little' fanfare, often un-
seen by the public," 'Crawford
said. .-"Farm-City Week- allows us
the opportunity ,to briefly thank
them 'for all they do for us
throughout the year. ..
Crawford also noted that the
quiet.;generosity,of Florida farm--
ers helps feed many of the state's
neediest citizens. '
"By donating fresh .produce,
Florida farmers help supply rianvy
food banks, soup kitchens and


other charitable programs that
feed the hungry," Crawford said.
Crawford said the Florida De-
partment of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services recently entered
into a public-private partnership
that will help more farmers wish-
ing to donate food to link up with
organizations that can distribute
it to the hungry,
The Department has teamed
with Farm Share, a Dade County-
-based, non-profit food recovery
program, to pick up fresh pro-

This- national observance is

Thanksgiving holiday to recognize
the contributions of caregivers
|who provide unpaid personal care
;such as food'preparation, bathing
!and dressing,,to a chronically ll
or -disabled. family member or
friend.
e "Caregiving is not just some-
body else's problem anymore,.
says Jeanne Scher of the Older
Women's League. As the popula-
tion ages, it Increases the proba-
bility that at some point in time,
every American will become a
caregiver. Sonya Smith of AARP
says, "Caregiving is a national
concern that will probably hit
most of us." This is the message
that the AARP and OWL are send-
ing as people across the country
