A Whoosh! A Puff of Smoke .. .and Off it Goes!


FSU Sends Up Three Rockets Over Weekend to Test Ozone,


Weather Conditions


With a shuddering roar, and leaving a trail of smoke behind,
the second Microstar rocket to be launched from the Cape San
Bias launching pad of the Spaceport Florida Authority, zipped
up to 280,000 feet into the wild blue.yonder, Saturday, gather-
ing data on the weather and ozone layer. It was perfect weather,
without a cloud in the sky.
A smaller crowd gathered to witness the rocket launch Satur-
day,than gathered on the Cape in August of last year for the ini-
tial shot from one of two launch sites of the Authority in Florida
and the only site from which sub-orbital rockets are serit aloft.
Spaceport Florida Authority successfully launched three Mi-
crostar suborbital rockets In support of an ozone research pro-
gram for Florida State University. The two-day campaign, which
also included several balloon launches. fully satisfied FSU re-
searchers' requirement to obtain ozone measurements In a col-
umn through the earth's troposphere. Using the Cape San Bias
launch site in Gulf County, two rockets were launched on Sat-
urday, December 11. and a third was launched on December 12.
FIRST LAUNCH SATURDAY AT 10:20
The first launch jumped off the launch pad at 10:20, after
about an hour delay while tracking devices were tested and posi-
tioned. The launch carried a meteorological payload that trans-
mitted data about upper atmospheric conditions. Saturday's


second launch deployed an ozone measurement payload that
provided data as it descended from 175,000 to 167,400 feet. At
approximately 167,400 feet the instrument's telemetry signal
was lost and a data transmission link could not be re-
established. After a post-launch review of the payload's results,
the Spaceport Authoirity and FSU decided to launch another
ozone device on Sunday to gather additional data.
The second ozone payload. deployed at approximately 11:30
a.m. on Sunday, provided ozone measurements throughout its
descent, giving FSU's researchers valuable data on ozone con-
centrations for a part of the atmosphere that cannot otherwise
be directly measured. The altitude is too high for aircraftand too
low for satellites.


day.. Several FSU students also provided support during the
campaign, preparing the payloads and telemetry equipment for
the launches.
TWO MORE MISSIONS PLANNED
Two more ozone measurement missions are planned by FSU
next year. The ozone research is cosponsored by the Technologi-
cal Research and Development Authority. an -organizatUon that
provides funding for space research projects using proceeds
from the sale of Florida's Challenger auto license plates.
The Spaceport Authority provides its mobile suborbital
launch capability to support and encourage space-related re-
search by Florida's universities. This mission was the authority's
fifth in three years, with previous launches conducted at Cape

AFTER SIX MONTHS of the most thinly veiled indecision we
'have ever seen, Governor Lawton Chiles has made the decision
to run: for Governor of Florida for another term. Chiles has de-
-'cided-in. his words-to finish what he has started.
Chiles hasn't been that awful as Governor. He could have
:'been worse. He could have been better. But, his balance sheet of
.-performance isn't that bad. He did some things which took some,
.biting the bullet to do-and has left undone some of the things
-which direly needs doing in Florida and in the other 49 states of
the Union.
We're talking about ,teeri crime, of, course. Although we can't
blame the presence of rampant crime on inactivity by the Gov-
emrnor; we don't think he or other lawmakers have done what
they could to rectify the situation, either.
THERE ARE TWO pretty good sounding ideas on the table
whichc h we think should be tried, at least. Youth crime has degen-
erated to the point where we must try something,or else revert
back the Old West,, where everyone carries a six-gun for his own
protection and it's survival of the 'fastest draw.
We look kindly on the "Boot Camp" concept. The facilities are
already in place, what with the Franklin County prison, empty
work camps, etc. It may trample on the freedom of some of these
youths, but better their freedom to act as they will be trampled
,on than the lives of innocent, law-abiding citizens snuffed out.
;. The shooting on the Long Island Railroad is a case in point.
We also look kindly on the suggestion made recently that the
parents of chronic young criminals be held responsible for the
mis-deeds of their children. If the parents had been responsible
for them before they adopted a life of crime, the kids wouldn't
now be killing kids.
EVEN JESSE JACKSON is now preaching the sermon of re-
sponsibility by youth. He, like the large majority of other decent
citizens of this nation, is alarmed by the actions of these young
hoodlums. Jackson knows also the Blacks have more to lose
than the whites, since the greater majority of the crime is Blacks
on Blacks. with a white man or two, or three, thrown in for good
measure along the way.
A generation of showing racial hatred at home and resistance
to punishing criminals just because his skin is black has reaped
all of America a crop it didn't expect. nor does it want to live
with.
There is no real excuse for any person, white or Black. to kill.
rape, assault or steal. It is a crime against nature as well as a
crime against our fellow man.
Maybe Jackson and Chiles could get together and exchange
notes on how to deal with the problem.



Just Hang On!

THE NATION OBSERVED AIDS Day a few days ago. with the
media outlets all recognizing the special day: the government
agencies officially marking the need for such a recognition of the
problem the world is having with this disease and groups gather-
ing for special ceremonies, paying tribute to those who have
died; expressing worry for those who are suffering from the dis-
ease or those who may suffer in the future.
,-.Noth.i.ng wrong with expressing their concern-over the situa--
tion or..lamenting the disease's relentless spread over the world.
After all. the main cause of the disease is one of man's most
forceful drives of nature. True. the disease is something to worry
about. It's always fatal, but so is life: it always ends up in death.
There is no known cure and no effective treatment for the ail-
ment and its consequences.
So what are the people gathering to protest'? What would
they have done? In most instances, the survivors or loved ones
of the victims demand the government spend more money on
this plague which has taken their son-brother-friend. Do it now!
"Pull a cure out of a hat and give it to us." they seem to be de-
manding.
BUT IT'S NOT ALL that simple. It took years to come up
with a cure for polio. Smallpox took centuries longer. Conquer-
ing tuberculosis wasn't accomplished over-night, and it's coming
back again! Rabies is another example of the difficulty of finding
cures for dreaded diseases.
In the meantime, since we know what causes AIDS, is it too
much to expect that people steer clear of the root cause of this
always-fatal disease? Is it too much to ask that precautions be
taken to help themselves? Is it too calloused of all we people who
lehd a straight and moral life to have the opinion that those who
gdt the disease through continued activities on their part, should
n6t look to us for excessive sympathy and attention?
But. you hang on. Well give you our undivided attention
Sjost as soon as we can!

Christmas shopping done."
Back in August "we" had de-
cided to take a vacation during
the holidays. This trip was going
to be our Christmas. "Instead of
gifts, we'll put the money into the
trip." Sounded O.K. to me at the
time ....
I was a little confused now. If
we were'not buying gifts, why am
I looking around this mall. ... .
Audry Jones had a sign in!

customers that a store-wide sale
was in progress-everything was
50% off. It crossed my mind to go,
in and buy a size 22 extra long.
When Cathy opened it, I would as
Innocently as I could muster say,
"Honey. I wasn't exactly sure
about your size, I thought this
one would be just right."
I'll tell you where I made my
mistake Christmas shopping for
Cathy. You young husbands pay
attention out there. The third
year we were married I bought
her the absolute best gift there
ever was. The last seventeen
years the presents I've brought
home Just haven't measured up.
Don't buy your best gift the first
year or twol It will mess up
Christmas shopping for the rest
of your life! I got her one of those
Ronco Veg-i-matics back in '76
and it's an act that just can't be
topped. You know what I'm say-
ing? Don't buy the whole Ginsu
set, give It to her one knife at a
time .
I stopped at the stand out in
the middle of the hall that put dif-
ferent, customized headlines on a
made-up front page of a newspa-
per. I though it was pretty neat.

You can't shop on an empty

the chocolate chip cookie place.
It's my favorite store In any mall.
I got in line behind a couple of la-
dies who, without a doubt, had
downed a -few chocolate chips in

louder than necessary, to the
young fellow in the line next to
me, "You know,. they're having a

There beside the highway was
an old Indian, with feathered
head-dress, on Thanksgiving day,
making tips having his picture

This particular Indian was
standing in front of his teepee,
along with his grandson. who w'as

he doesn't have his grandson

A. J. and that little Indian
were 'in and out of the teepee;

Indian had in a pen beside the
teepee and checking out a stuffed
buffalo. The bear was trinag to hi-

Fun With Whoopi And Ted
Several months ago, Whoopi Goldberg aridTed.Danson.raised a
lot of eyebrows around the wofld When'they-started dating. Ted is
the star of the hit TV series "Cheers", while Whoopi is a movie star
in her own right. ;
After they had dated for some time, rumors were- that they were,
engaged., When asked about the rumors, they didn't deny or con-
firm them. They did admit that they were in love, but wouldn't spec-
ujate oa marriage. The rumors continued. ,
Whoopi is black and Ted is white, in case yoqudidn'tknow. This
difference Is of little consequence except it Is the very thing that has
gotten Whoopi and Ted in a lot of hot water with several groups of
people in the good ole U.S. of A. : : .
It all started a few months ago when Ted and:Whoopi attended
a. dinner party honoring some -comedian, of note. It was a "Roast",
during which many of those in attendance.were asked to partici-
pate. When it came Ted's turn, he shocked many of those in atten-
dance by doing a "blackface" skit that was; supposed to be funny.;I
didn't see the skit, nor do I know what he said, but a lot of black
people were offended and told the press about it.
Whoopi Immediately rushed to the defense of Ted. She stated
that she couldn't understand what all the fuss was about because
it (the skit) was done in good taste. Besides, she said, it was all in
fun. i .
It wasn't a laughing inatter to! many of the members of the
NAACP.' ,
It wasn't long, however, before the fire died down and things be-.
gan to return to normal, if there is such a thing as normal in Holly-
wood, or California, for that matter.
SSuddenily a few weeks later, up jumped the devil ,again! This
time it was Whoopl's turn, and her actions have a different group of
people steaming mad. She did it with a chicken recipe she included
in her cook book, Cooking in Litchfleld Hills. The recipe is for "Jew-
ish American Princess Fi-ed Chicken".
The recipe says: "Send' a chauffeur to your favorite butcher
shop for the chickenr, "Watch your nails", and "Have cook prepare
rest of meal while you touch up your makeup".
Did I mention that Whoopi is Jewish?
Mr. Abraham Foxman, National Director of the.Anti-Defamation
League, said, "I don't think it's funny. It's totally insensitive because
it raises all the ugly anti-Semitic stereotypes."
Well, I think Ted and Whoopi 'unintentional as it may have
been, have hit on something here. I think there's too many people
walking around with chips on their shoulders. Much too sensitive
about nothing. I assure you that I wouldn't 'care what they said
about my wife if I could afford a chauffeur and a cook for her. And
it wouldn't bother ime one bit if some black guy did a "whiteface"'.
skit of a country boy. I would probably laugh louder than anyone!
I'll bet there's not a person who's complained about Whoopi and
Ted that has ever heard one of my favorite country songs, Queen of
Aly Doublewide Trailer. Maybe that's not political correctness, but it
sure is fun.
After all. it's like a friend of mine once said to a man who
caught him trying to "snake" his girlfriend: "What's the use of living'
If you can't have a little fun, and what's the use of lovin' if you can't
love everyone?"
Amen!

G.C. Sheriffs Dept.


Has BusyWeek-


Solve Three Crimes

Marijuana, Robbery and Stolen Dogs


The Gulf County Sheriffs De-
partment has had a busy week,
making five arrests and investi-
gating a robbery of the Jr. Food
Store in Wewahitchka.
According to Sheriff Al Harri-
son a Bowling Green, Florida pa-
rolee is suspected of taking the
cash from the Jr. Food Store's
cash register Saturday night.
Sheriff Harrison said a man en-
tered the store at about 11:20
and borrowed a fountain pen.
from the clerk. The man came
back around 11:45, returned the
pen and asked if a taxi service
was available. The clerk told him
there wasn't, but that he might
catch a ride with a Sheriffs Depu-
ty who might be going to Port St.
Joe.
At. this point, he took up a
bottle opener lying on the coun-
'ter, holding it in a threatening
manner, and instructed the clerk
to open the cash register.,'He
struck the register with his fist
and it came open. Reaching in-
side and removing all. the paper
money, he then fled the store.
The clerk didn't recognize the
robber, a strong indication that
he was from out of town.
The Sheriffs office had
records of a Ronnie Drone Mar-
shall, age 31, having his proba-,
, tion transferred to Wewahitchka
from Bowling Green recently. Wit-
nesses had seen Marshall around
the store that night. Continued
.investigation led to the assump-
tion that if the robber was Mar-
shall, he might have returned to
Bowling Green. A photo sent to
Gulf County by Bowling Green of-
ficers was identified as the rob-
ber.
A warrant was sent to Bowl-
ing Green from Gulf County for
Marshall's arrest. He was ap-_
proached by two Bowling Green
officers to make the arrest, Mar-
shall resisted, striking the officers
and escaping. Now. Bowling


Green has warrants for Mar-
shall's arrest on a resisting arrest
with violence charge.
Marshall is said to be a black
male, 5'5", 145 pounds with a ta-
too of a horse's head on his upper
left ann. Anyone who has infor-
mation of hIis whereabouts is
urged to contact the Gulf County
Sheriffs Department or Chief Ce'-
cil Donalson of the Wewahitchka
Police Department.
DOG THEFTS
Tvo Highland View men, Al-
len Thomas Evans and Carl
Thomas Butler have been arrest-
ed and charged with the theft of
hunting dogs in Dixie County and
selling them.
The two men are charged,
specifically, with the theft of, tak-
ing several Walker Hound deer
dogs in Dixie County, valued at
approximately $500. They were
brought to Gulf County and sold.
In the, process of recovering
the stolen dogs, the Gulf County'
Sheriffs Department has received
information that several more
dogs were stolen and sold
throughout northwest Florida.
Sheriff Harrison said that about
' 15 stolen dogs have been recov-
ered thus far through the investi-
gation.-
Evans and Butler were extra-
dited to Dixie County Monday.
MARIJUANA CHARGES
The Sheriffs Department has
also charged three Gulf County'
men with possession of more
than 20 grams of marijuana.
Arrested were Willie Shep
Meredith, 57. Tony Gene 'Mere-
dith, 29, and Charles Bruce
Meredith, 32. all of Route 1. We-
wahitchka.
The arrests came after follow-
ing a Up which led to an investor
gation of the matter.
The three men were released
on their own recognizance by
County Judge David Taunton af-
ter arraignment.


Getting Ready

This line of photographers gathered Saturday morning to
photograph the launching of the second suborbital rocket
from the Cape San Blas launch site. The photographers were
busily checking their cameras, focusing and getting ready
for the big moment when they will have only a split second
to record the event on film or tape for re-showing in area
newspapers, TV and to record the'activity for FSU. Even
with all the preparation, more, than one photographer
groaned after the launch because he or she had "missed it!",
The Microstar didn't spend much time posing once the igni-
tion button was pushed.

several changes in their building
code ordinance discussing man-
datory smoke detector installa-
tion. roofing permits and gas ap-
pliance installation.
The change in the ordinance
has stirred some disagreement
over whether or not to permit gas
installations by a licensed me-
chanic and whether or not to al-
low a person to re-roof his own
building without a permit. -
As an aftermath of Ordinance
discussion. Commissioner Billy
Traylor said, "This board should
let it be known we support the ac-
tivities of our building officer,
Don Butler, as doing what we re-
quire. If we don't require some ac-
tions. the state of Florida does.
Most of our building regulaUons
came from the state of Florida. He
does nothing, nor does he enforce
anything that the state or the
county hasn t required him to do.
He applies the same set of rules
to everyone and is a conscien-
tious and loyal official of the
county. If we have, a complaint,:
'we shouldn't lay the blame at the
feet of the building official..We
and the state made the rules he
is attempting to enforce. We need
to take the blame and stop pass-
:ing the buck to our building in-
spector."
Michael Hammond added,
"He can't change the law, nor can
a private individual change the
law. Don Butler treats all persons
alike. He is, in my opinion, the
most valued employee the County
has." .

CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM


MEDICAL

HOMES


By
Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

Recently, the American Academy of Pediatrics has mounted a
big push to have each child in the country establish a "rhedical
home". The advantages are many when children can have continul-
ty of care. In the past. having a special doctor for a child was a lux-
ury only the wealthy could afford. Now It only needs for parents' to
recognize the importance of this ongoing care and ask for it.
Much can be gained when a physician sees patients on a regi
--lar-bastl-for-well-chfld-ehecks-and-for-eaeh-iflness- A-picture -deve-
ops. over time, that allows a physician to better assess the situatiqi
than one who arrives on the scene with no background information.
Medical "gypsies" (people who go from one office to the other)
get what they have come to expect-poor care.
Parents should choose a doctor for their children. This doctor
should be one they can respect and trust. After choosing, they
should become loyal patients. This interaction becomes a two-way
street. Loyal patients engender loyal physicians. A loyal physician,
if unable to provide a service his patient needs, will see that the pa-
tients gets the needed service where it is available.
Physicians are not always available 24 hours a day. Days off,
vacations, and Illness do occur. When possible, the physician will
arrange coverage for his patients when he is unavailable. Just be-
cause the physician was once unavailable is no reason to become a
"medical gypsy" with no medical home.
Most doctors are willing to help out when a patient's doctor is
unavailable with the understanding that the help is on a temporary
basis until the patient's regular physician is available.
There are many advantages for patients to have a medical
home. If you have never had one. 'Try it. You'll Like It."

damaged by decay, your dentist will
pay special attention to the relation-
ship of the surrounding teeth and
how they follow the lines of your .1ps.
He'll also study the natural color,
of your teeth. When the crown irs
made, it can be covered with a natu-,i
ral-looking material, such as acrylic-,
or porcelain. This s important when.
the crown is on. one of your front:
teeth. When you open your mouth to.
speak or smile, you'll feel cosmeti-
cally secure if the tooth has a natural
look.
Your dentist will also spend a lot
of time shaping the crowned tooth so.
the contour will look natural as well
as perfectly matching the shade of
your other teeth. It should also prop-
erly support the shape of your lips.

THE STAR, PORT ST. JOE, FL THURSDAY, DEC. 16, 1993


Capitol News

Round-Up
By Jack Harper



It was musical chairs time in Tallahassee last week after Gov. Law-
ton Chiles announced for re-election and Education Commissioner Bet-
ty Castor was selected president of the University of South Florida.
According to whose interpretation you like best, the week set the is-
sues for the 1994 election year, opened the door for a black (Rep. Tim
Jamerson, D-St. Petersburg) to be named to the Florida cabinet, and
assured gridlock in the 20-20 split senate.
Spinoffs may have also caused Insurance Commissioner Tom Gal-
lagher to decide not to run for governor (he has made no comments on
it), although he could announce in the spring if no Republican candi-
date has caught. fire by then. Sen. Charles Williams, D-Live Oak, who
may know something we don't, announced he would not seek Gallagh-
er's cabinet post because he was happy as a freshman senator and
point man for Senate President Pat Thomas as chairman of the Select
Committee on Governmental Reform.
IT'S CHILES-MACKAY AGAIN
Whewl Speculation like this is what comes from living in Tallahas-
see. I assure you it's normal.
Governor Chiles, in his "aw shucks" way, said "nope" when asked if
he had any doubts about running for re-election, although he had joked
earlier that his inner voice often spoke to him while out turkey hunting
and he was going to listen to what it said. He said Lt. Gov. Buddy
*' MacKay would be his running mate again, ending speculation he would
appoint MacKay to Betty Castor's cabinet post, a move he would proba-
bly have made if his decision was not to seek re-election.
Surprisingly, Chiles did not appoint Jamerson, a qualified Demo-
crat experienced in education who is going to run anyway, to Castor's
cabinet post in spite of pressure from endorsements by House Demo-
cratic leader, the House Democratic conservative caucus, and the Flori-
da Conference of Black State Legislators.
It was the pressure, perhaps, that caused Chiles-who is known to
be stubborn-to delay filling the interim appointment, although he is
having trouble with minority groups for his veto of a bill that said he
"shall" make board appointments to coincide with the composition of
the number of minorities in Florida.
More speculation around the capital is that Chiles is feuding with
House Speaker Bo Johnson, D-Mllton, and Jamerson is caught In the
middle. Chiles passed. over a Johnson favorite (Ronald Blank of Pensa-
cola) for the Public Service Commission. Sandy D'Alemberte, Chiles' fa-
vorite for the Florida State University presidency, was selected over
Johnson's favorite, former House Speaker T.K. Wetherell. Johnson still
appears to be the most likely appointee. He says he would like it so he
can build a record to convince Floridians to give him the job in an elec-
tion. .
Chiles' official entry into the race probably marks the end to the un-
usual bl-partisanship of the Florida Senate lately, because Chiles is go-
ing to be claiming credit for any gains during the election year and Re-
publicans may see that he doesn't have any.
POLLS SHOW IMPROVEMENT
Polls before the recent special session showed Chiles has a slight
increase in his low standings which are worse than former Gov. Bob
Martinez's poll ratings about this time in his tenure. They show Chiles
winning slightly over individual Republicans, which isn't good because
there is a large uncommitted vote which usually goes to the challenger,
rather than the incumbent.
Chiles didn't include tax reform among his achievements In his an-

HERE'S THE CAPITOL NEWS ROUND UP:
TALLAHASSEE-An average drop of 10.6 percent in workers' com-
i pensation premiums will save Florida businessmen an estimated $334
million in 1984, according to Insurance Commissioner Tom Gallagher.
It was hailed as a great accomplishment of the Florida Legislature
in Its special session by Gallagher, Gov. Lawton Chiles and Senate Pres-
ident Pat Thomas, D-Quincy.
Gallagher said low-lnj ry risk businesses could obtain even cheap-
er premiums with up to 26 percent in savings if they implement some of
the requirements in the law such as job safety awareness programs,
Managed health maintenance, and a drug-free workplace.
"There will be real relief fdir businesses that have been struggling
under a system that only benefited special interest," said Chiles. He
held legislators in session for an extra week because he wanted bigger
premium cuts than they first proposed.
,'; Thomas said the savings would literally mean life instead of death
for some small businesses and would in the long run mean better sala-
ries and more jobs for working people. .
Gallagher released the rate Thursday and took the unusual step of
making it effective Jan. 1, even for policies which expire later In the
year. "For many firms, the cost of coverage threatens their continued
operation. We're committed to helping them as quickly as possible."
Gallagher said.
The rates have been c bebefore. A 1990 reform law required a 25
percent rate cut; but the savings disappeared with. large increases in'
1992- and 1993. Legislators say that isn't likely to happen again. .
Unions claiming the savings come on the.backs of workers in loss
benefits and trial lawyers objection to' cuts in their fees are expected to
i \ call for changes in the law again in the 1994 legislative session.
S In othei capital city news: .
i AN 8 PERCENT pay hike was being sought by the American Feder-
Sration of State, County and Municipal Employees union which has de-
l, dared an impasse over Gov. Lawton Chiles offer of a 3 percent pay hike
on Jan. -1, 1995.


Gov., DOT, Promoting Sober


Driving During December

Number of Victims for '93 More than Twice the Fatalities
Reported In '92 with Two Months' Reports Still Out


Governor Lawton Chiles and
the Florida Department of Trans-
portation (DOT) are joining with
state and local law enforcement
agencies during December to pro-
mote public awareness of that
state's drunk and drugged driving
problem.
Governor Chiles issued a
proclamation on November 23,
naming December as Drunk and
Drugged Driving Prevention
Month in Florida. The proclama-
tion urges Florida residents to be-
come "more cognizant of the dan-
gers associated with impaired
drivers..." A Blood Alcohol Con-
centration of .08 or about is ille-
gal.
State records show that alco-


hol and drug-related crashes
killed 302 people on DOT-
maintained roads during 1992.
Another 721 people were killed on
city and county maintained roads
throughout the state. Preliminary
1993 data from the Florida De-
partment of Highway Safety and
Motor Vehicles shows that 683 al-
cobhol and drug-related traffic fa-
talities had been reported as of
November 11.
: "DOT works hard to improve
safety on the state's streets and
highways' said DOT Safety Engi-
neer Ed Rice. "But we cannot
keep people from drinking and
driving. We hope to convince peo-
ple to choose designated drivers
and to not let their friends drive

when impaired. We are also pro-
moting safety belt use as a de-
fense against drunk drivers."
The DOT safety office has
committed more than $1.7 mil-
lion in federal highway safety
funds to alcohol-related programs
during the current fiscal year.
Some funds are being used by
law enforcement agencies to in-
crease DUI enforcement activities.
Other programs are promoting
awareness in Florida schools of
the drunk and drugged driving
problem.
The following steps are rec-
ommended to reduce the number
of alcohol and drug related traffic
fatalities in Florida: Choose a des-
ignated driver before going where
alcohol will be served; don't let
friends drive if they have been
drinking: never ride with some-
one who has been drinking; wear
your safety belt at all times; be a
responsible host, serve plenty of
food and non-alcoholic beverages.

BLISTER BOTHER
It doesn't take much
to develop blisters on
the. feet. They are
caused by the friction
of skin rubbing
against footwear, plus
moisture. This often
results from wearing
new shoes without ad-
equate "breaking in" or
from walking much
longer distances than
one ordinarily does.
The' first signs that a
blister is forming are
reddened skin and
pain. To reduce pain
and keep the area
clean, cover the affect-
ed areas promptly with
a bandage strip of
moleskin padding.
Cushioning socks also
may help. It is inadvis-
able to break a blister,
because doing so risks
infection. If a blister
breaks by itself, first
wash the area and dry
it with a sterile pad.
Then put on an anti-
septic and cover the
area with 'a bandage
strip. If you keep get-
ting blisters, consult
the podiatrist to find
out why and how to

How to

Select A

Healthy

Poinsettia


Poinsettias (Poin-set-ee-ahs)
and Christmas go together espe-
cially here in Florida. The poin-
settia's bright red bracts and
dark foliage give this plant a fes-
tive appearance, which is espe-
cially appreciated during the holi-
days.
Poinsettias have become very
popular throughout the country
as symbols of Christmas. As a
Floridian, you have the widest se-
lection of poinsettia varieties from
which to choose. If you plan to
buy a poinsettia this year, you'll
want to know what to look for,
and how to care for your pur-
chase after you get it home. My
information on poinsettia selec-
tion and care was provided by Ex-
tension Horticulture specialist
Dr. Robert J. Black.
You'll probably hear this
*) plant call both poinsettia (poin-
set-ah) and poinsettias (poin-set-
ee-ah). The second pronunciation
is preferred by most garden ex-
perts, But don't feel you have to
say "poin-set-ee-ah". If you tell
your nurseryman you want a
poin-set-ah hIe/she'll know what
you mean.
When shopping for a poinset-


Florida Garden

' Extension Notes
SBy
Roy Lee Carter
Gulf County Extension Service


Lia, look for several things. Be
sure the plant has green foliage,
and they should be brightly col-
ored. The most popular poinsettia
color is red. But you also can find
numerous shades of pink, white,
and every color combinations.
The real -poinsettia flowers
are small green and yellow clus-
ters growing in the center of the
bracts. You should select a plant
with small, green undeveloped
flower parts. If a poinsettia al-
ready has open, yellow floes, a
good portion of the plant's display
life is over, and the bracts soon
will begin to fade.
Poinsettias are native to the
warmer, humid regions of Mexico.
So, potted poinsettias need spe-
dial care. As house plants, poin-
settias should be located where
they'll enjoy uniform temperature
of 60 to 75 degrees fahrenheit
during the day, and about 60 de-
grees at night. The also should
receive bright light, but no direct
sun. Avoid areas subject to
drafts, sudden temperature
changes, low humidity, and dim

before bringing them indoors. Ar-
rangements of cut poinsettias
should be placed in cool, draft-

should not be exposed to the di-:

If carefully selected and prop-

Be Sure You Get Present-and


Warranty
Attorney General Bob Butter-
worth warned Floridians to be
careful when they shop for holi-
day presents to make sure they
get the item-and the warranty-
they think they are paying for.
As part of a nine-month-old
investigation, the Attorney Gener-
al's Office filed a motion in Leon
County Circuit Court to compel
Wal-Mart Stores, Inc., to provide
detailed information regarding its
marketing of Seiko watches and
warranties.
The investigation centers on
so-called. "gray marketing," in
which products manufactured
overseas for foreign markets are
imported into the United States
and sold to unknowing consu-
mers at reduced rates. The manu-
facturers often do not know of the
importing, and because the items
are riot made for U. S. markets
'"the manufacturers often refuse to
provide warranties against de-
,fects.


--You're P
inferior in quality to those watch-
es Seiko manufactures and im-
ports for sale in the United
States. The watches in question
were imported into the United
States without the authorization
or backing of the Seiko trademark
owner or authorized U.S. distrib-
utor.
The motion alleges that Wal-
Mart did not disclose to its cus-
tomers that the watches were not
of the same quality as Seiko
watches intended for the U.S.
market, or that Seiko did not war-
rant, replace, or repair the watch-
es sold at Wal-Mart.
The motion also alleges that
Wal-Mart has falsely promised
customers that the discounted
watches carry a Seiko three-year
warranty and has marketed the
watches under the false pretense
that they are in all material .re-
spects the same as Seiko-brand
watches, sold by authorized Seiko
dealers in the U.S.


The court motion filed today Consumers are advised Lhait
says the Seiko-brand watches are if they want to, avoid \ray-


saying for
marketed name-brand items,
they should determine whether
they are buying from an author-
ized dealer who offers a warranty
fully, support by the manufactur-
er.
The attorney general said
items such as televisions, video
equipment, and watches are fre-
quent sources of gray market
sales.
In the Wal-Mart case, the At..
torney General's Office issued an
investigative subpoena on Sep-
tember 1 seeking detailed infor-
mation regarding possible gray-
market sales. The attorney gener-
al's motion says the retailer's
two-page replies, submitted by-a
paralegal, were repeatedly evasive
or non-responsive.. The motion
asks a judge to compel the com-
pany to provide the subpoenaed
information.
Store are not required to pro-
vide warranties beyond those of-
fered by the manufacturer. How-
ever, stores may not legally claimn
to offer a manufacturer s v.arran-
tyv. hen ill fact there is none.

Being a musical buff, Cathy was
quick to answer, "Spain." (Re-

Traveling Craftsman .
(Craftswoman)
Retired Tweeta Gaskin has
another hat to wear: that of a
traveling craftswoman. You'll be
likely to see her dragging baskets
of pine cones, trailing ribbons.
and a smoldering glue gun going
round the corners of school and
into various classrooms. Speak-
ing from personal experience, my
workroom looks much like I have
always envisioned Santa's work-
room. She has been helping my
students do pine cone reindeer.
The other day an ambulance' call
came In and Miss T1veeta was off
and running to yet another job.
The glue gun had hardly cooled
down before she was back help-
ing another child. Volunteers--

That Giving Spirit!
I hope everyone has it. The spirit of giving is what makes the
.-celebratlonaof.Christmas-worth wle. When you can give something
to someone, especially if It's someone you know. that needs, help, it
gives you a feeling of warmth and pleasure that is Immeasurable.
Even when you donate to a pot for the Salvation Army or other
worthwhile charities, you know you're helping someone. Give it a
tryl Our schools often have students who are struggling to survive
because of problems and dimculties at home. If you would like to
help a student at Christmas, contact school personnel such as
guidance counselors or social workers and they will see that your
help is directed to where it is needed most.
Some students dread seniester exams, others are well-
prepared, and of course some just don't care. Please do all that you
can to prep your student for these very important exams. It is not
the time to give up and take a low' grade-it's the time to do the best
you can dol
Education has changed so much the last few years, many for-
mer educators and parents would have problems recognizing what
they used to know as education. There isn't a week that goes by
that schools and students aren't faced with a selection of crises.
most of which have little or nothing to do with education. But, they
have a lot to do with a student beingg in the right frame of mind to
be educated, so we are forced to deal with these different problems
as best we can. Since many of the problems involve family, parents,
etc., schools are limited in their ability to intervene. Many outside
agencies often have to be brought into the situation, causing more
confusion and sometimes more conflict. It's little wonder that edu-
cation no longer resembles what it use to. since in addition to being.
an educator, you now must include doctor, nurse, psychologist.
lawyer, law enforcement, social worker, guidance, fund raiser, etc.,
on your resume.
Communicate with your student. Regardless of what they say,
they need your support. Show them you do care what they do and
say and how they act. There's no better time of the year to get close
to your offspring

taste)
2 teaspoons salt, or to taste
1V2 teaspoons freshly ground pepper


Saute the sausage in a large, skillet over medium-high heat until cooked
through (no longer pink but not dry), about 5 to 8 minutes. Transfer the,
sausage and the fat, if desired (there will be less than 2 tablespoons) to a large
mixing bowl.
Melt the butter in the same skillet over moderate heat. Saute the onion in the
butter until it is soft: Add the celery and continue cooking briefly, so that it retains
its bright green color. Add to the sausage in the mixing bowl. Add all remaining
ingredients to the bowl, mixing thoroughly but gently.
Just before roasting, stuff the mixture loosely into the body and neck cavi-
ties of the bird. (If there is left-over stuffing, place it in a shallow, greased
casserole dish and bake it during the last 30 minutes or so of roasting.) Makes
enough stuffing for a 1.2-16 pound turkey.
