The City of Port St. Joe Is
faced with a federal mandate of
making all City buildings handi-
capped-friendly by January 1.
and are planning a workshop in
the near future to discuss just
what they plan to do to comply by
Superintendent of public
works Frank Healy reminded the
Commission of the deadline at
their meeUng Tuesday night and
discussed contracting the work
as soon as they arrive at just
what they plan to do to comply
with the federal mandate.
Healy said, "I don't believe
our crews will have the time or
the skills to do some of the work
needed, and have it all done by
January 1, 1995."
The Commission has consid-
ered everything from moving the
Commission meeting room into
'the Fire Station, to building on
the parking lot between the Fire
Station and Police Station, to put-
ting an elevator in City Hall. They
are also faced with the problem of

City has received at least one

Mrs. Mary Bryant reiterated a
complaint she had made last Fri-
day. telling the Board of an un-
pleasant situation at the rear of
her property from unsightly con-
ditions caused by trash on the
premises and men loitering at an
unofficial gathering spot. She
asked that something be done
about both conditions.
Mrs. Bryant was informed
that they hadl already taken care
of the situation, since her com-
plaint of Friday. "The owner of the
property 'was unaware of the
problem until we called his atten-

bris where it had always been
placed, but someone was scatter-

Mayor Pate said. "We have noti-

Spaceport Florida Will
Fire Rocket From San Blas
The Spaceport Florida Au-
'thority will launch a Microstar
suborbital rocket from Cape San
.Bias in Northwest Florida's Gulf
County around December 11.
The rocket will deploy a sensing
device to measure upper-
atmospheric ozone levels for re-
searchers at the Florida State
University (FSU) in Tallahassee.
The 16-pound micro-
electronic payload will be ejected
from the rocket's second stage at
an altitude of over 150,000 feet.
'As it descends through the at-
mosphere, connected to an inflat-
ed parachute devise, the sensor
will telemeter data to a ground
station in Gulf County for later
analysis at FSU's Meteorology De-
partment. FSU researchers hope
to compare, their data with higher
altitude measurements made by
NASA's orbiting spacecraft and
other ground-based sensors to

TAKING A LOOK AT OZONE
"Continued reductions in.
upper-atmospheric ozone have
caused concern among scientists,
environmentalists, and the gener-
al public," said Kevin A. Kloesel,
FSU's principal investigator for
the ozone project. "A profile of
ozone concentrations in the
upper atmosphere will contribute
to an understanding of how this
gas effects life on earth. Suborbi-
tal launches provide an excellent
opportunity to collect ozone data
at altitudes other measurement
devices cannot reach."
The Saturday launch will be
one of a series of ozone missions
planned. by FSU and the Space-
port Authority at Cape San Bias.

A CASE BEING TRIED in court by the Leon County Property
Appraiser's office could have a tremendous negative effect on the
entire state of Florida, its naval stores operations, its lumber in-
dustry, its rayon manufacturers and its paper industry. The de-
cision could cost the state of Florida millions of dollars in tax
revenue, millions of dollars in lost business and thousands of
jobs if the Property Appraiser of Leon County wins his case.
This case is in Leon County, but the people of Gulf County
have a special interest in the outcome since our County's in-
-: come is so dependent on forest related products. The pine fo-
rests which grow so profusely around here also are the base of
our economy, along with commercial fishing.
THE ACTUAL LITIGATION IS against St. Joe Paper Compa-
ny, which is another reason why we should be interested in this
case and its outcome, both because the decision will set a prece-
dent for every county in the state to follow and it stands to place
St. Joe Paper in a position of losing its competitive status in the
paper market. If the paper market doesn't run for St. Joe Paper,
neither does the railroad business, the telephone business nor
the box making business. In other words, with the wrong deci-
sion, a large percentage of us here in Gulf County can be out of
Leon County's Appraiser is attacking the value placed
against woodlands of St. Joe Paper, now under the greenbelt law
for tax purposes. Bert Hartsfield, the Appraiser, wants to in-
crease the taxable value of the property in order to triple its tax
yield. If he is successful, the next thing which would happen is
that other counties in the state would use the Leon County decl-
sion as a basis for hiking their own assessments; against St. Joe
Paper, St. Regis, Louisiana-Pacific, Stone Container, Georgia-
IPacific and uncle Henry's two-man peckerwood sawmill.
THE GREENBELT TAXING rate was established to protect
these and other agricultural interests from being taxed out of
business. Hartsfield's suit would remove that protection to the
detriment of half the working people in the state of Florida. Our
forest industry is too valuable a property to destroy so a, com-
mission somewhere, can raise a few more tax dollars.
The only hope we have against a ruling in favor of the Ap-
praiser is that the suit is against St. Joe Paper Company. They
-have a better than average record against such suits and possi-
-bly have the clout-along with our support-to combat it.
SO, GULF COUNTY HAS an identifying logo now! After all
these years of operating without one, the County can identify all
its equipment and properties with the new logo put its mark
on everything owned by the County, so to speak.
G u If Co u nty has been sort of a generic county for these many
years. It had no means of identification. Actually, It was best
that this situation existed since what It had and what it owned,
was pretty ragged equipment. Hardly anybody in the County
would be proud of having it known their county used this kind
of equipment and owned such dilapidated machinery.
The County now owns some pretty good rolling stock. Most of
its equipment actually operates these days. A great deal of the
vehiet'even have a good paint job, without too many dents or
scratches. A nice, crisp, logo painted on the doors of the truks
will actually add to the appearance of the trucks, rather than
make us all feel embarrassed to have people know these are the
type vehicles used by Gulf County'.
IT COULD BE THE LOGO w'as promulgated in order to en-
courage the Commission to maintain a credible fleet of machin-
ery now that it can be readily identifiable.
The logo in no way detracts from our.equipment. It enhanc-
es. The new symbol tells the story of what Gulf County is all
about at a glance. We are a County of forest products:; both for
paper and for lumber. We have always been a County depending
on a timber economy, even long before the St. Joe Paper Compa-
ny came to Port St. Joe. We will always remain dependant on the
Gulf County is long on sports fishing, hunting and water
,sports. The new logo points that out.
The County is strong into manufacturing products, both
from pine trees and derivatives from the sea, such as magnesia
oxide. We are mainly a blue collar economy, making a variety of
products, ultimately depending on the pine tree.
Gulf County depends on the sea for some its largess, com-
mercial fishing, transportation, sports fishing, etc.
All in all the logo accurately tells the Gulf County story. We
congratulate the County Commission for taking this positive
step and for selecting such a true representation of what do here
in Gulf County. -

December 14, from 1:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. at First Metho-

The holiday season is one of the most critical times of
the year to keep the area's blood supply 'at a safe level for
family, friends and neighbors because many regular donors
get busy with holiday activities and don't find time to give.
Unfortunately, the need for blood doesn't take a holiday. Se-

needs which occur: i.e. accidents.
Donating blood is a simple and safe procedure that
takes approximately 45 minutes.
Donors must be at least 17 years of age. weight at least
110 pounds and be in good health. There is no age limit for"
senior citizens who are in good health.

As the great chefs know, cooking with natural gas has many
advantages. Sleek new gas ranges fit beautifully into any kitchen.
Only gas provides instant on-instant off cooking, and you can
see the flame and adjust the heat precisely. Not only will your
gas range provide delicious meals, you will be able to cook more
than two meals for the cost of cooking one electrically. Enjoy
cooking on a clean, safe, efficient gas range.

THE STAR. PORT ST. JOE. FL THURSDAY. DEC. 9. 1993
By Jack Harper
The direction Florida legislators intend to go on several major is-
sues in the regular session in February was fairly evident after Senate
and. House committees adjourned last week. They'll be tough enough
maybe on crime to provide the prison beds' needed to get the criminals
(including juveniles) off the street and, perhaps, cut and improve big
f government enough to help the economy.
k Don't expect any big drive for new taxes (except maybe for prisons),
although House Speaker Boley Johnson, D-Chipley, told his juvenile
crime committee to come up with "solutions that do more than punish"
V4 and Senate President Pat Thomas, D-Quincy, told his group that "we
cannot be constrained by a lack of resources".
Window dressing. The fact is, it'll be an election year and most
people know what that.means.
"The time for thinking and hoping is gone. Now is the time to act,"
said Thomas in what was probably the key quote.
The House committee began a study of juvenile crime prevention
programs that have worked. The Senate planned hearings around the
state to get more public input or to sell its plan before getting down to
the nitty-gritty in the regular session.
.One of the most likely proposals in the legislative mill is boot camps
forjuvenile criminals. Others range from curfews and sentences for par-
ents who don't control their children to abolishing the juvenile criminal
justice division in the Florida Department of Health and Rehabilitative
A PERMANENT SUGGESTION
Uncle Clem Redneck, down on Flat Creek in Gadsden County, said
none of the proposals he has heard so far will work. Flat Creek Clem is
known in Gadsden County for once suggesting hanging at least one pol-
itician every four years on the courthouse lawn as an example to other
S'All dem plans have got one serious flaw," Clem said as he deftly
skinned a catfish in a flicker of an eye when I visited him over the week-
end. "Dey all cost too much money. Effin they don't figure out a way to
make dem criminals at least pay for their keep, Amerika ain't gonna be,
rich enough to afford 'em."
Clem didn't mention old fashion public works chain-gangs, he said,
because he didn't want to upset Auntie Tenishoe down in St. Peters-
"Rural folkyknows how to take care of demselves... .like their grand-
dads and grandmas did. They can shoot straight-and will-at all four-
and-two-lagged varmints and don't every mind," Clem said. "City folk
ain't ready to do that yet, so one of dese days right after dey get a tax
bill dey's gonna ask: What happened to that old sentence-20 years at
SECOND MAJOR THRUST
Clem said it was time legislators took over the running of the state
again. So I told him what I thought was going to be the second major
thrust of the 1994 session.
It appeared loud and clear at a hearing of the Select Senate Com-
mittee on Governmental Reform, chaired by Sen. Charles Williams, D-
Live Oak. Many state agency people left the room as Carroll Webb, staff
.director and general counsel of the Joint Administrative Procedures
commission, began his presentation. They knew what was coming.
Webb recommended passing a bill next year giving the legislature
authority to suspend any rule written by a state agency that does not
carry ou.t the intent they meant it to have.
Noting agencies over the years have taken upon themselves rule-
making authority, Webb said the bill-in order to pass court challenges-.
should be passed and sentito the governor. If he vetoes it, then override,
and ask the attorney general to determine its constitutionality, he said.
Senators-both Republican and Democratic received the recom-
mendation warmly, suggesting they take a list of rules to the session
this year that they want to suspend.
\ Webb said 14 states have the rule suspension law now and it :
"I can't tell you that Florida legislators are going to belly up to the
table and do Whatever is responsible to the people it is supposed to
serve." Williams said.
He was joined by Senators Fred Dudley, R-Cape Coral, George Kirk-
patrick; D-Gamnestille. and James Scott; R-Ft. Lauderdale. in bashing
department heads appearing before the committee. Sen. Ander Cren-
shaw, R-Jacksonville, who is running for governor sat quietly on the
committee most. of the day smiling broadly. His campaign is based on
saving money by cutting big government.
"Anything we do to streamline government to make it more efficient
will have an impact on the economy," Kirkpatrick said.
Citing an example of what bothers legislators, Williams said they.
had mandated a five percent cut abolishing 28 positions when they
merged the Department of Natural Resources and the Department of
"Now they're requesting an increase of several hundred positions."
Williams said. "It boggles your mind."

FRANK D. MAY, D.M.D.
If all of the rear teeth in one
side of your jaw are missing, you
may opt for a partial denture in-
stead of a span of empty gum. Your
dentist will have to rely on your front
teeth for support in making such a
partial denture. He'll also have to
make maximum use of your gums
and supporting bone to give the
denture stability. .
Even though this kind of partial
denture is not as stable as the kind
that hooks onto or is permanently
affixed to supporting teeth on both
sides of a tooth. void, it is certainly
preferable to the alternative of full
dentures. The remaining natural
teeth can continue to provide
strength in chewing food and help
maintain the shape of the face.
Without the help of supporting
teeth in the rear to hold this type of
partial denture in place, there is
more pressure on gums and ridges.
A certain amount of shrinkage is a
natural occurrence. This means the
partial denture will have to be ad-
justed from time to time. This will
probably include relining to com-
pensate for changes in your gums
to make it fit securely. But, it is cer-
tainly better for your health, your
appearance, and eating to have
teeth rather than uncovered gums.
Prepared as a public ser-
vice to promote better dental
health. From the office of

Tendons In Trouble
Tendonitis is the tennrm for
.tendon inflammation. Foot
and leg tendons of athletes
are especially ;e subject to
stresses that cause this' prob-
lem. Signs of tendonitis are
swelling and an aching feel-
ing in the affected area,
,which turns more painful
when %walking or running.
These are signals ,to stop
sports activity, and consult
the podiatrist. 'Recovery usu-
ally lies in rest and treatment
that may include orthotic
shoe inserts and physical
therapy. Some cases need
When tendonitis is ig-
nored, it can set the stage for
more serious trouble: rupture
of the. tendon. This is espe-
cially troubling when. it is the
Achilles tendon that rup-
tures, because it plays such a
major role in controlling foot'
performance in motion. Treat-
ment of an Achilles tendon
rupture often has to be treat-
ed surgically. Nonsurgical
treatment usually includes
wearing below-knee casts for
two to three months, followed
by physical therapy to gradu-
ally improve tendon stretcha-
bility and joint flexibility.

It's certainly one of the best times of the year. Not because of
the gift giving and receiving, but rather because people are general-
ly so much more pleasant towards each other during this season. I
hope students and parents will continue to extend this coming holi-
day period and the pleasantness that It brings.
Congratulations go to seniors Cathy Tremain and Jeremy Prid-
geon for winning two of the four WHS District Ill spots in the annu-
al Brain Brawl held Saturday, December 4. These two. WHS stu-
dents, along with one student from Port St. Joe and one from
Blountstown, will represent District III in the state competition in
the spring. We believe this is the first time WHS has been repre-
sented in the state Brain Brawl.
The semester is rushing to a close. You should be getting
progress reports, and not long afterwards the 3rd six weeks and the

at 12:30 and on Wednesday the students are. released at 12:00.'
Some will be exempted from some finals, but students should check
well ahead of test dates to be certain about exemption.
Both boys and girls basketball are struggling this year. The. ex-
ception is the girls JV team which has won most of their games.

Parents should take the opportunity to visit their new School
Board offices if they have a chance. Space is the key word, after be-

large enough to accommodate the
gift package plus cushioning, and
remove or mark out any conflict-

essary. In fact, they may be detri-

comes entangled in processing
"It's important to seal your
parcel securely," says Geoghagan.

Plants Offer Nice
Solution for Gifts
Choose Yours Carefully for Longer
Life of Plant and Enjoyment of All
Christmas shopping can be
quite a challenge to your brain,
as well as your budget. In addi-
tion to the consideration of cost,,
there's always that old question
of what to give. For some of those
on your list, plants might offer a
nice solution. A healthy, vigorous-
plant, usually is a welcome addi-
tion for either home or landscape.
But, before you rush to your fa-
vorite nursery, you should con-
sider what- to look for, and what
to avoid in plant selection.
Whether you're shopping for
a gift plant for a friend, or for an
addition to your own collection,
you should choose your purchase
carefully. Plants come in a wide
range of grades, conditions, and
standards, and it's sometimes
hard to tell which ones have the
best chance for survival. Usually,
better plants will cost you more
money. But, this isn't a hard and
fast rule. Where nurseries have
sales they offer top quality plants
at bargain prices. The important
thing is to be able to tell what
If you visit a nursery which
tags plants according to the stan-
dards of the Florida Division of
Plant Industry, you'll have a
much easier time deciding on
quality. A "Florida Fancy" is an
extremely healthy, vigorous plant
well shaped with good strong
branches and dense foliage. A
"Florida Number One" is a
The following is a list of loca-
tions that Florida Highway patrol
Troopers in Calhoun and Gulf
Counties may conduct driver li-
cense/vehicle inspection check-
points during the month of De-
SR-71 near John Bailey Rd.:
SR-71 near SR-381; SR-71 near
CR-275; :SR-22 near the Bay

Recognizing the danger pre-
sented to the public by defective
vehicle equipment, troopers will
concentrate their efforts on vehi-
cles being operated with defects
such as bad brakes. worn tires,
and defective lighting equipment.
In addition, attention will be di-
rected to drivers who would vio-
late the driver license laws of

eryman should be able to help
you in making such.decisions.
If you follow these basic
guidelines for selecting gift
healthy vigorous plant with a
'good shape and a good supply of
leaves. All other plants, they also
have the poorest chance of survi-
val. If plants are from, a super-
niarket, discount store, or similar
outlet, you'll need;, to be able to
identify vigorous, healthy plants.
Look for compact, rather
,than spindly plants. An abun-
dance of foliage is usually a good
sign. A spindly plant without a
'good supply of leaves may be the
victim of various leaf spot diseas-
*es or discoloration. Inspect the
trunk and branches to see that
they are well-formed, without
cracks, peels or scars.
Carefully examine each plant'
'for any signs of insect or disease
problems. Some things to look for
are speckling on the leaves,
caused by aphid injury; and
small bumps on stems and un-
dersides of leaves, resulting from
a scale attack. Common disease
problems often show up in yellow
or brown leaves, rotting stems,
and brown roots. Check the soil
to make sure it has good color,
and hasn't been too heavily com-
Tpacted. Pick each plant up and
make sure that roots aren't grow-
ing out of the bottom of the pot. :
Some other considerations in-
'vohle where a gift plant will even-
tually be grown. If the plant is to
be kept indoors,, you should de-'
termine whether it requires spe-
cial lighting, If the plant is to be
grown outdoors, you must deter-
