Proposed New


Budget For Gulf

$32,932,500 For Still Another State
Prison Complex To Be Built In County
By JACK HARPER,
Weekly News Service
Governor Lawton Chiles' proposed $38 billion state budget is
tough on crime but easy on taxpayers, until after the elections
when Floridians will begin paying an annual bill of $434 million
for 14,666 new prison beds.
Part of these new prison beds are scheduled for Gulf
County-in addition to those already provided by the Gulf
Correctional Institution at Wewahitchka and the Gulf Fo-
restry Camp on Howard Creek Road-according to a draft of
the proposed budget, released Tuesday of last week. The
new proposed budget contains $3,974.203 to operate an ad-
ditional 176 single cell housing units at GCI. The housing is
for minimum and medium security prisoners. In addition,
Gulf is scheduled to receive $32,932,500 to construct a
1,318 bed annex to GCI. The new facility will be in addition
to the facility currently nearing capacity in the Stone Mill
Creek area near Wewahitchka.
'We're not talking about building prisons. We're doing it,"
Chiles said when he proposed his 1994 budget last week. It also
calls for beefing up police forces and counseling to every juvenile,
offender in a budget beginning July I that increases spending by
$2.5 billion over the current year.
Most of the money would' cormne frOth proposed newfees. The
bonds to build the prisons can be issued immediately, but pay
back wouldn't begin until 1995.
Although no new taxes are proposed for 1994, Chiles predict-
ed new taxes would be necessary by 1995.
BUDGET REFORM CALLED FOR
Chiles called for more accountability and said it was up to
the Legislature to reform budget making, a goal Senate President
Pat Thomas, D-Quincy, said has become the target for his Select
Committee on Governmental Reform.
"It [budgeting reform] is one of my top goals. Until we change
the existing system, there is not going to be significant changes
to the base budget," said Sen. Patricia Grogan, D-Merritt Island.
Elected officials can't track how much money goes into vari-
ous programs or determine if they are getting results. State

County Had More Than Its Share of Tragedies in 1993

Children Die in Unprecedented Numbers in Mobile Home Fires; Raffield Fisheries Again Leveled by Blaze


If there was anything which stood out in. 1993 as
unusual here in Gulf County, it had to be the lamen-
table record of burning more littlechildren to death
than at any other such period in recorded history.
There were more children burned to death In mobile
homes than there were people killed in automobile
accidents.
Gulf County--just Gulf County--had five chil-
dren die, while two more were recorded about a mile
across the Gulf/Bay Count'y line in Mexico Beach.
Fire also reared its destructive head and burned
Raffield Fisheries, destroying much of its seafood
handling capabilities for the second time in seven
years.
But while the year was not without its horrific
tragedies for the year, there were many instances of
good news recorded in the pages of The Star, also.
Scanning these pages at year's end, we came up
with the following short bits of news which should
prove interesting to you.
JANUARY
The year started off with three men being injured
in two separate accidents. Steven Paul McDaniel was
hot:in the foot in a hunting accident. Terry Luckie
and Mark Anthony Weeks were injured in a boating
accident in .the Apalachicola River. Gulf County
agreed to its first union contract with the Interna-
tional Union of Operating Engineers representing a-
portion of County workers. The Road Department
adopted a method of building bridges on little trav-
eled roads which saved considerable money. The
new method used old railroad flat cars for the bridge
spans. Momma Lola Costin, benefactor to many peo-
ple in need, died after a long and useful life. A torna-
do struck Overstreet; Casi Lindsey was named Out-
standing Young Woman of Gulf County and Pat
Floyd.was named County Attorney.
FEBRUARY
Building was on the rise in February, with four
new commercial buildings under construction in the
county,. Ground was broken for the Stiles Brown
Senior Citizens Center. The location of the building
was moved to the Courthouse property later in the
year. Nickolas Scheffer, 11 months young, became a
cause of concern for the entire county when he un-
derwent. the first of two successful surgeries in
Gainesville, at Shands Teaching Hospital. He experi-
enced the third major surgery in Boston, Massachu-


setts in the fall., Mayor- Frank Pate was named Out-
standing Citizen by the Chamber of Commerce.
Ralph Roberson was named president of the Cham-
ber of Commerce. A man and woman were shot near
Wewahitchka and Buddy Simmons was charged. A
drive was started by a group of citizens to raise


$100,000 in two years to finance college tuition for
Gulf County youth.
MARCH
The Middle School idea was presented to the
School Board in March with committees, studies,
meetings, and strong feelings resulting in the Board
adopting the concept which will go into effect this
year. Scallops showed up in a swath some 40 miles
long in the Gulf of Mexico. Raffield Fisheries burned
for the second time and left a year-long legal dispute.
with the unfortunate family. Natasha Powell, seventh
grade student, was named County Spelling Champi-
on. Winter made its last gasp with the storm of the
century.
APRIL
Mayor Pate was re-elected for his 12th term
along with Edwin Williams and Charles Tharpe, to
serve on the City Commission. The three were elect-
ed without opposition. A Panama City man became
Gulf County's first traffic fatality of the year when
he drove his vehicle into a pine tree north of White
City. Jeffery Lord was named Wewahitchka's new
postmaster. St. James Episcopal Church started
construction of a new church building on Marvin Av-
enue. Gulf County's young Commissioner, Michael
Hammond, drew the attention of the Jacksonville
Times-Union as Florida's youngest elected official.
Jeff Schweikert, seventh grade student, was named
the national winner of an essay contest sponsored
by the DAR. He was rewarded with a trip to Wash-
ington, DC for he and his parents. Bobby J. Middle-
brooks was found murdered in his home at Beacon
Hill and David Bryan Kalpar was later charged with
the crime.
~-MAY
A mother and two children died in a mobile
home fire in Highland View. The victims were Regina


Smith, 22, Donnie C. Smith, 3, and Kayla R. Smith 6
months. The City gained ownership of the first of two
pieces of property adjacent to St. Joseph Bay to be
used as a park. The School Board decided to stick to
its regulations when a dispute-arose at the end of
the school year. A landmark, the old "Jmmy Greer"


Chevron service station located on Monument Ave-
nue, was torn down. Gulf Correctional Institution
started operation in earnest with 292 jobs promised


by fall. Woods fires raged all the way from Port St.
Joe to Wakulla, burning 855 acres. Gulf County
Schools graduated 166 seniors.
JUNE
The City's Comprehensive Plan was adopted by
the state of Florida, after three years of preparation.
County buildings ban smoking inside. The Weather
Bureau announced the Apalachicola Weather Sta-
tion will be closed down by December 1995. Little
Jonathan Thumm became the City's first pedestrian
killed on- City streets when he stepped in front of a
car in Oak Grove on Sunday, June 6. South Gulf

Better Off

PORT ST. JOE WASN'T any different from most towns and
communities at Christmas time. They banded together to make
:Christmas just a little bit brigher for those in our confines who
were not as fortunate to have the necessities of life and enjoy a
traditional holiday feast.
Somehow it just doesn't seem civilized to enjoy good times at
holiday seasons while others go wanting, so, we're good at gath-
ering' food, toys, clothing, money, or anything.else one might
need and not -be able to purchase for themselves.
One thing which brought this to mind was the VFW prepar-
ing sacks of groceries for those in need, or the Fire Department
giving of their time to make used toys just like new for children
who might not have the joy a shiny new toy brings a child at
Christmas. Of course, the VFW and the Fire Department were
-not the only ones involved in these activities. Churches, organi-
zations and individuals throughout the community were in-
volved in the search for a needy family or two they might be of
assistance to.
THE NUMBERS OF those in need seemed to be fewer this
year than in the past. We have been directly involved in provid-
ing for those who cannot provide for themselves or who have
small children who face a gift-less Christmas over the years. It
seems as if the Jaycees, who formerly ran the toy connection
and gathered up groceries, didn't' seem to have much trouble
finding those who needed their services. Our church hasn't
seemed to have much trouble finding someone to assist in the
past; nor have other clubs and organizations we have been asso-
ciated with. So it is with this personal experience we testify to
the need of families in recent years, to receive assistance.
This year seems to.be different. People with an open heart
seemed to have a more difficult time finding families in need this
year. The desire to help was just as strong as ever. The number
needing their assistance seemed to be diminished.
IF OUR OBSERVATIONS are correct it is an indication peo-
ple were better off this year than last. We will not definitely make
that statement however, since it may be that people are a little
more reluctant to let their true condition be known.' Pride can
get in the way of people accepting assistance. We're proud of the
people of our community for being willing to step in the gap for
those who needed it, even to the point of hunting a family or two
who needed a helping hand.


New Experiences
THERE'S ONLY TWO MORE days remaining in the year of
our Lord, 1993. With the passing of the old year into the new
Friday night at midnight, we can expect several different situa-
tions to face us as time goes by. A new year will mean different
ilings to: different people, but it will mean the same -thing to
most of us in small but important ways.
For instance, each and eveiyong will be a year older during
the coining year. If we live to our birth date, we will add another
year to our age, reaching another milestone in life.
For most of us, the new year which will rush in on us Satur-
day will bring a full day of football! Saturday will be nirvana for
some and.a curse which must be borne by others.
The hew year will mean a period of readjustment for all of us.
Each and everyone will need to become accustomed to writing
"1994" when dating documents and do away with the habit of
'writing "1993". We may be considerably into the new year before"
we become accustomed to writing the new date.
It will be a new point of reference for remembering things. No
longer will you subtract a point in time from 1993 to arrive at.
the point in history you would use as a reference point. As Wen-
dell would say, "It didn't happen 29 years ago any longer. It was
30 years ago!"
You're one year nearer to being eligible, for Social Security
and Medicare. If you're not already getting it. That's nothing
to look forward to, however, since the way things are headed.
there will be no Social Security or Medicare funds remaining if
you have too many years to wait for eligibility.

"BUT, ONE CAN always look to the good side of the new year,
also,
You will be delighted to know your home is one year nearer
being paid for! What a glorious feeling when that day finally ar-
rives!
[This "almost' category holds true for your furniture, car,
bank loan, school tuition, fines and credit card loans, also.]
: The new year promises both good things and anxiety. The
year 1995 will mean a new set of experiences to deal with.


We cooked up an after Christ-
mas problem over at our house
this year that you're just not
hardly going to believe. Of course,
it's easy to understand how it
happened, it's the magnitude of
the thing that boggles the mind. I
blame it directly on the various

cooked for them anyway. We've
,got leftovers literally running'out
of our ears!
I'll tell you how bad it is-
we've still got deviled eggs. ,
And let me quickly add that
it's not Cathy's fault. Some sec-
tion of her clan have been down
here every year since before we
got married! I'm serious. They
sent some scouts down the No-
vember before the "I do's" to test
the drinking water, make sure


the atmosphere would allow the
bread to rise, sample some oys-
ters. try the deviled crab. They
could'a cared less about the
beach-they were scoping out
anything edible that could possi-
bly be snatched out of that water!
Cathy had to be prepared.
Listen, she's got a sister that can
smell a pot roast from 500 miles
out. .
You've also got to remember
that Christmas of '89 is still fresh
on our minds. That's the year
they all showed up. They bor-
rowed the Happy Goodman Fami-


ly touring bus and "came on
down". They ate the smoked ham
and both turkeys before noon on
the first day. We had two wheel-
barrows full of dressing. Aunt
Katherine got up during the night
and finished that offl By Christ-
mas afternoon, we were complete-
ly out of food. I'll tell you how
desperate things were-they'd
even eaten Cathy's asparagus
casserole. My boys stood back
and watched in amazement!
By nightfall, Jo Blair was get-
ting restless. Josh remembered a
family pack of peanut M&M's
back in his room. They broke
open the chocolate covered de-
lights and began to ration them
out like they were doomed Ameri-
can pilots on New Guinea during
the early stages of World War II.
Along about bed time I heard
the bus crank up. The thunder-
ing herd was heading out. They
began to file by, moving rather
quickly, with the hugs and the
good-byes.
'We've got to be going, Kes,
sure enjoyed it."
"But Aunt Barbara, it's al-
most midnight!"
'We've stayed as long as we
can," Cooter was a'shaking my
hand, "thanks for everything."
"What'd you put in that pe-
can pie, it was delicious!"
I looked Jo Blair right in the
eye and with as straight a face as
I could muster replied, "Which
one?"
Aunt Jane squeezed my arm,
'Will ya'll be alright until the
stores open in the morning?"
Gay Foley came along down
near the end. She gave me a big
hug, backed away and, with her
usual candor, cut right to the
heart of the matter, "Kes, it's half
crazy to leave at this hour, but we
figured even on Christmas night
if we can get to the interstate, we
can find a truck stop open."
My wife wasn't sure if any of
them were coming this year or
not. But you can understand Ca-
thy's thinking. She was embar-
rassed back in '89. It wasn't going
to happen again! She was mostly
concerned about.Jo. Blair. She'd.
lost'all that weight trying to catch,-
herself a man. Well, she got him!
For" the last two years it's been
barbeque ribs for breakfast, a
rack of lamb for lunch, and for
supper it's the extra large Texas
T-bone, three French hens, two
turtle doves, and a partridge in a
pear tree. Dessert, of course, is
the standard-four moon pies,
two RC's, and some after flipping,
sipping, and dipping snuff. Mary
Dudley allows that for the past
couple of years, Joby has been in
hog'heaven.
Cathy went to serious cook-
ing five days, before Christmas.
The "herd" didn't c9me. I don't
know why. I think maybe the
Happy Goodman Family was do-
ing a concert up in Hibbing, Min-
nesota.

we ate-the; bigger that pile grew
in the bowl. Josh figured the little
pea-ettes were reproducing down

It Was A Mighty Fine Christmas at the Ramsey Household


IT'S ALL OVER but the pay-
ing for. Christmas has come and
gone and I'm certain you and
yours had a good one. We
couldn't have'asked for a better
one at the Ramsey :household.
The whole clan was there, except
for one son who had to work and
two grandsons who were on duty.
If you had been searching for a
Ramsey, there would have been
enough at our house Christmas
Eve night to give you a wide selec-
tioh in your decision, as to which
one you wanted to take.
There were Ramsey's, or rea--
sofable facsimiles hanging out
the windows and filling up all the
downstairs room at our house,
waiting on something to eat.
There were grandchildren and
great-grandchildren. There were
in-laws [at least. a half dozen of
this variety of Ramsey] and there
were great-great grandmothers.
We had 'em all.
Two turkeys, a ham, three


gallons of clam chowder, a half a
sack of oysters, and a half dozen
of assorted pies and cakes, barely
made it around the table. If there
hadn'tbeen a little sweet potato
souffle, pea salad, butter beans,
pickled carrots, "dipping" vegeta-
bles, lima beans and dressing to
go with the two turkeys, a ham
and three gallons of clam chow-
der, they probably wouldn't have
made it around the table.
AFTER THE CHRISTMAS
Eve meal, it was "crowd around
the tree and open gifts" time. I got
a pencil, a bottle of Lectric Shave,
a shoe shine kit and a shotgun


shell caddy. Frenchie and I re-
ceived a gift certificate, good for a
trip of our choice.
I didn't get many items, but
then I didn't need anything. It
was a great Christmas, but aren't
you glad it's over?
We even had a threat of snow
and sleet to go along with the.hol-
iday! Some people-even here in
Florida-got that sleet and snow,
poor devils! At our house, we just
tossed another log in the fireplace
and let the good times roll!
DID YOU EVER have to pur-
chase Christmas gifts for grown
grandchildren? I'm telling. you,


it's tough. Three of the tribe were
in college. At least two were mak-
ing plans to go next year. What
do you get a kid in college? .1I
relied on the old green paper bit
where one size fits all, the color
matches anything and never goes
out of style.
They' seemed to appreciate
the appropriateness of the gift.
There were gifts dispensed also.
Appropriate, but not pretentious.
Two female grandchildren-
the only ones I have-received
paid up gasoline tickets for their
cars. They were used up before
the week was over.
One 7-year-old grandson
wanted a go-cart and received a
flashlight and some games. That's
a pretty good substitute for a go-
cart, don't you think?
The older grandsons did just
what I used to do several years
,ago-they stayed in the woods
'hunting! A few days off for Christ-
'mas gives one the spare time for
hunting which is not available at


other seasons of the fall and win-
ter.
We had another little great
granddaughter, still in the bassi-
net this Christmas. All the wom-
en.' gathered around and ooh'ed
anrd ahhh'ed, went coochy,
coochy, cool and "look at that
hair," in addition to "isn't she big
for her age!"
The boys, who out-number
the girls considerably in our fami-
ly, just wandered about, talking
about the deer they killed, or saw
and didn't kill, and sampled all
the food-a Ramsey instinctive
trait.

A. J. WASN'T THE center of
attention this year. There were
three present who were younger.
than he. They. received most of
the attention. A. J. has always
followed the older boys around at'
Christmas 'time and any. other
time there was a family gathering.
Sort of 'big brother' syndrome.
This year, A. J. couldn't move


without two of his younger clan
members right under his feet,
questioning him about how to op-
erate some of the more complicat-
ed toys. It was A. J.'s turn to be
the center of attention from the
younger set.
AFTER THE GIFT opening
and the meal eating, we had a
sort of sing along of Christmas
carols to wind up a perfect
Christmas evening. The grand-
children were all bundled up and
herded home after the festivities
so their parents could get started
getting in contact with Santa
Claus who still had to come.
It's my understanding some
of those parents had to get up
around 3:00 a.m. and some at
12:30. In the meantime, Memaw
and Papaw had the privilege'of
sleeping late Christmas .morning.,
One of the privileges of having
grandchildren! You can send
them home when it gets to .the
hard part!

rangement, lest you get a premature divorce.
When your car won't start or breaks down, don't try to call a
cab because there ain't none here.
A safegift for almost anyone is a book, provided that person
hasn't forgotten how to read from watching too much TV.
Never loan money or your wife to a friend.
0. When talking to someone who is wearing dark sunglasses,
slap them every few minutes to make sure they are not asleep.
so When eating dinner at someone's house, eat all you can hold
and ask for a doggie bag. This will make the host know you are a
glutton -and they will never ask you back.
=) Pick a sport that you can play and enjoy, and play golf at
least three]times a week.
-* Never tell a friend his wife is ugly and fat, lest you lose a
friend and a few front teeth.
-* Never park your vehicle at night with a full tank of gas if
there are teenagers in the house. They can smell a full tank of gas!
*: -, Give your girlfriend or wife flowers often and for no reason,
even if you.have to stop and pick them off the side of the road and
put them in an empty beer bottle. After all, it's the thought that
counts-and you can save lots of money and your relationship.
When your daughter announces -she is getting married, offer
the lucky bridegroom-to-be $3,000 to elope. You will save money in
the long run, plus a lot of work.
;Cook a meal for your wife and family at least once a month;
When they taste how bad it is, they won't askyou to cook again.
*0 Never trust a person who comes toa party naked.
When you go to the grocery store, go when you are extremely
hungry. Doing this will make you buy much more than you need
and cut down on extra trips to buy irore groceries.
-* Never put a gun rack in your pickup unless you put a gun or
two in it. People will think you're bluffing if you don't have a gun in
it.
-o Always remember: Look back not in anger, nor ahead in fear,
but around in awareness!
-0 And whatever else you may do, have a Happy and Successful
New Year!

CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM


New Year With


New Opportunities

'" : By
', ., *. -.. Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.

As 1993 comes to a close, many people will give thought to the
year that has passed, and will think of accomplishments and fail-
ures throughout the year. This self-assessment is good and can be
applied with equal benefit to the family. Has the family done well
throughout the year? Have the happenings in 1993 been negative
or positive to overall family operations? Is there anything you can
do in 1994 to improve family relationships and functions?
There are a few basic health concepts I would like to offer for
consideration as you give thought to your families.
1. Obesity is probably the number one health problem in the coun-
try today. It takes concerted long-term planning, cooking, and
shopping to achieve optimum weight for all in the family. It is a
constant battle, but one well worth winning. It prevents health
problems that develop as a result of obesity.
2. Smoking is bad for your health and the health of those around
you. The marked increase in lung cancer is directly related to
smoking.
3. Illicit drugs are unhealthy for people, families, and society in gen-
eral.
4. Casual sex is unhealthy. In 1991, Florida reported 32,205 cases
of gonorrhea, 728 cases of hepatitis and 2,567 cases of primary
syphilis.
5. Automobiles are unhealthy. The automobile causes more death
and disability than anything else in our society. Few among us
would be willing to give up this form of transportation so it be-
hooves us to use extreme care and operate the vehicles cautious-
ly. Children seem in danger of losing the use of their legs-disuse
atrophy. Your child does not need to be driven two blocks to his
friend's house.
6. Television can be unhealthy. The educational and entertainment
values of television can be negated by the violence and poor role
models presented-not to mention the poor food and exercise
habits that develop.
As the new year arrives, give thought to each of the topics men-
tioned above. Think how you as a parent can influence your family
in a positive way and make 1994 better than 1993.

ON YOUR,
FEET













DR. STEPHEN GROSS
oooooPodiatrist-ooo e
HEEL PAIN SOLVED
What causes severe
pain in the heel? There are
several possible explana-
tions. Often the cause
originates.not in the heel,
but in another element of
the foot-the plantar fas-
cia. One end of this fi-
brous tissue on the bot-
torn of the feet is
-connected -to the heel
bone, the other end to the
forefoot. It controls the
movement of bones in this
arch.
When the plantar fascia
is injured or becomes irri-
tated and inflamed, it can
put unusual stress on oth-
er foot elements. One re-
sult is severe pain at one
end of the fascia-where it
is anchored to the heel
bone. The pain sometimes
flares when one stands up
after a period of rest. Sin-
gling out the plantar fascia
as the cause of heel pain
takes some medical "detec-
tive work" for which the
podiatrist is trained and
experienced. Treatment
varies according to the
type of fascia problem, but
the objectives are the
same: Restore the fascia to
normal function and elimi-
nate heel pain.

U By. John A, Banks
If you live in a small town
such as Port'St. 'Joe. that is near
a United States Air Force -base
such as Tyndall, you soon come
to learn that these are two separ-
ate worlds, one military and one
civilian. Two cultures. You can
see it every day. We town people
are high speeders at 20 miles per-'
hour while the airmen in those
beautiful delta wings up there are
coasting out of gear at 500 MPH.
We are slow-paced' and friendly,
they're smash-paced and distant.
.." Zip! (or rather B-o-o0m!), they are
,Ji here and gone across the sky.
Our town is open to all, their
base is closed to the public. Two
life styles that will never meet. Or
so it appears on the surface but
About two weeks ago a well-
known resident of Port St. Joe, :on,
whom we shall bestow the name
of Mrs. Smith, suffered severer'
stroke and brain damage. Mrs.
Smith was quickly prepared for
travel with medical assistance
S and placed in an automobile to be
.* taken to the large medical center
in Panama City. an hour away. '
WVayne Childers, head of the
Democratic Party at Port St. Joe,
volunteered to assist. Childers
tells what happened next.
cutting \We were moving rapidly
Corn- along Route 98 which passes
s over right through Tyndall Air Base,
-Asst. heading for Panama City, and
d was just before we came to the base
ipany Mrs. Smith suffered a grand mal
seizure. We' were dumbfounded.
Nobody in the car knew what to
S do. 'That is, nobody but the driv-
er. Disregarding the sign to not
trespass on United States proper-'
ty ahd somewhat fearftul,of what
might happened, he turned into
the base gate. The guard at the
gate, Instead of arresting us,,
quickly saw the emergency and
just as quickly gave directions to
the base hospital where we soon
arrived, at the ,emergency en-
trance. There was'no need to yell,
"Helpl Doctorl" for the guard had
called ahead and' there "wa 'a
!U medical team standing there wait-
ing for us.
"I looked at Mrs. Smith as
they transferred her from the car
to a trolley and was sure it was a
case of DOA., There could be hot
be life in that body. But the doc-
tors thought otherwise. They
quickly rushed Mrs. Smith to an
intensive care unit and performed
those mysterious rites that doc-
tors perform in those rooms. It
must have been the correct rites
for several hourslater one of the.,
doctors came ,to the waitingroomm
to ekxpa' in te situaUon.
"He stated that Mrs. Smith
was extremely ill, almost fatally
so, but that his team had brought
her back to a level of health
where she could now be safely
8 1 moved on to Panama City. he
said the type of service she need-
ed was that of a neurologist and
neuro-surgeon plus scanning ma-
chines for more accurate diagnb-
sis. And these the base did not
pholo C have. '
'The driver rose to go for the
car but the doctor said, "No. no.
We'll take care of this." '
3 "So phone calls were put
through to the Panama Medical
Center, Mrs. Smith was prepared
incov- for transportation, the: base 'am-,
i Bias bulance was backed up to the
4 and building,i Mrs. Smith was placed
s ,an- inside and a doctor,got in beside
Bayou her, for the trip, to be sure that all,

I suggested to Mr. Childers
that such medical treatment, the
supplies, .the ambulance, etc.,
were costly and might upset the

replied, "Hal A lot they care for a

and they just simply opened the

could have given more they would

Florida Is Home For Most Wading


Birds In Nation Except Louisiana


The Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission's (GFC) new
Florida Wading Bird Protection,
Network has targeted 10 wading
bird nesting colonies in seven
counties for immediate attention.
Egrets, herons, other wading
birds, and their breeding allies in-
cluding pelicans, anhingas and
cormorants, have been in serious
long-term decline in Florida due
to wildlife habitat degradation or
loss.
The sites are: Wesley's Is-
lands in, St. Lucie County: Lake
Mary Jane in Orange County;
east of Honeymoon Lake in Brev-
ard County; Lake Artificial Wet-
land in Polk County; Duck Point
Soil and Oslo Island in Indian
River. County: Estero Bay and
Hemp Key in Lee County; and
Myakka Cnritical Wildlife Area and
Roberts Bay in Sarasota County.
Volunteers will help GFC staff
with management and protection
efforts at each site.
,Mike Welse, nongame educa-
tion specialist for the GFC's Ever-
glades Region, said the top 10
sites were selected from the 100
nQst important and productive
wading bird sites in Florida. Sites
.were evaluated and selected earli-
er this year.
The "site teams" will be a
blend of professionals and volun-
teers, according to Weise. Non-
game, biologist and educators
with the GFC will .recruit, edu-
cate, train and coordinate the vol-
Sunteer force.
Each site will have its own
customized management plan.

Volunteers will assist in monitor-
ing wading, bird populations,
posting areas, assessing habitat
resources, carrying out an ongo-
ing ,education effort aimed at area
residents, and locating important
foraging areas.
Florida is home to more wad-
ing birds, than any other state ex-
cept Louisiana. Researchers have
documented that the populations
of nesting wading birds in south
Florida are declining because of
inadequate water levels. declining
prey populations, and other unfa-
vorable conditions.
A three-year survey of wading
birds, concluded in 1988, docu-
mented a significant decline in
numbers of birds and a drop in
wading bird colonies of more than
1,000 individuals and an increase
in colonies of less than 100 over
the past 10-15 years. This re-
flects undesirable fragmentation
in the population. GFC wildlife bi-
ologist Doug Runcle. who coordi-
*nated the wading bird survey,
said "White ibises, snowy egrets,
'tri-colored herons, wood storks
and even, cattle egrets are dra-
matically fewer than they were 10
years ago in Florida. The fact that
we located only about' half the
number of snowy egrets counted
just 10 years ago is scary. Only
for of the ,14 species. surveyed
seem to be holding their own." '
Susan Cerulean, wildlife acti-
vist and nature writer, authored
an article titled "Where Have MAll
Thle Waders Gone?" which ap-
peared in the March/April 1992
issue of Florida W\ildlife maga-
zine.. .
'Construction of water leaves
has drasticcaly changed wet-dry
patterns and water depth in
south' Florida, Mrs. Cerulean
wrote. 'The timing and location of
fish concentrations have been al-
teired, and many adult birds are
unable to find enough food even
to attempt nesting. North of the
Everglades, nesting wading birds
face similar problems as wetlands
dry iup or are degraded.
"Today, south Florida water
management is largely geared to
suit the needs of the human pop-
ulation. "Mrs. Cerulean wrote.
"..Consequently, the, conditions
necessary for wading bird nesting
rarely occur in the Everglades."
Officials hope to prevent fur-
ther decay of Florida's most im-
portant wading bird colonies and
stabilize some of the most rapidly

Round-Up
By Jack Harper


:.. --4 --
Events never cease to amaze this old reporter who can remember
(from about age six) some 66. New Years coming and going. As I smoke
my one cigar a year since giving them up In 1986. the irony and humor
of.1993 comes back to me, highlighted by Gov. Walkin' Lawton Chiles
grinning for the TV cameras at his budget news conference last week
*and saying:
'The Lord shines on them he loves."
The quote came after reporters questioned Chiles on where the
money was to come from to support his whopping budget proposals
without a new tax increase. .. ..
You know, the old turkey hunter may be right. The economy seems
to be turning around, more federaldollars are now available, the num-
ber of students. needing more education money is decreasing, and the
state's share of Medicaid funding has stabilized.
Conservatives, of course, are saying Chile's no-new-taxes budget is
just an election year conversion and won't last. "It sounds like he's sing-
Ing my song," said Sen. Ander Crenshaw, R-Jacksonville, one of his four
Republican opponents.
There was more irony in that budget news conference in the closing,
days of 1993.
For instance, in that budget more than half the money Chiles pro-
posed for state employee pay raises is to come from $70 million in sav-
ings from farming out to private businesses many support jobs now
done by state employees. The idea is to concentrate tax dollars on actu-
al government services. It was proposed by GOP Gov. Bob Martinez but-
was never implemented. Next year its time may have come.
An example of privatization is the new prison at Gretna, west of Tal-
lahassee. which is being built and will be operated by a private compa-
ny. It Is expected to operate at 10 percent less costs than a state-run
prison. The budget calls for cutting some 1,307 positions and not creat-
ing 489 more slots in support tasks such as maintenance and security
in various state agencies.
Perhaps, the most ironic late year news item is that Jack Gargan,
the Floridian who founded the Throw the Hypocritical Rascals Out is
shutting down his battle on political incumbents and is going to run for
governor.
Either that or the Monday appearance on ABC's Good Morning
America show in New York of state worker Harold Branch telling the
world how much he loves the 4-day work week he gets in a pilot pro-
gram in Tallahassee. "If it came down to having a raise or staying with
the 4-day work week, I'd take the short week." Branch said.
HERE'S THE NEWS ROUNDUP
Rep. Douglas "Tim" Jamerson, D-St. Petersburg, became the first
black on the Florida Cabinet since 1978 last week when Gov. Lawton
Chiles appointed him to the unexpired term of Education Commissioner
Betty Castor, who has been selected President of the University of
South Florida.
Jamerson, 46. would become the first African-American to win a
statewide election if he wins the post next year. The last black on the
Florida Cabinet was James J. McCrary. Jr., who was appointed Secre-
tary of State in a caretaker role in 1978.
Jamerson said he was not concerned about the political importance
of his appointment, but he is concerned about what he can do for the
educational system in Florida.
TOM GALLAGHER. Florida insurance commissioner who may run
for governor, announced support for a one penny sales tax increase to
' fund a get-tough-on-crime program. He called the proposal for a consti-
tutional amendment to be voted on by the people "Penny for Prisons".
and said criminals have turned Florida's image as a Sunshine State
into a State of Fear.
If approved by voters, the one penny sales tax would bring in $1.7
billion a year. It would be the biggest, tax increase in history.

was unable to pay their telephone
bill . but the phone was a
vital link in providing health care
for the patient. St. Joseph Tele-
communications responded with
a caring heart, allowing telephone
service to continue until funds
could be raised to pay the bill.


Telecommunications employ-
ees further rallied to the occasion
and personally raised funds to
buy food and gifts for the family's
young child. The Mexico Beach
First Methodist Church raised the
needed funds to keep telephone
service in the home. and made
arrangements to smoke a donat-
ed turkey for the family's Christ-
mas dinner.
Citizens of our community
can be proud of their neighbors
who continually show that the
Christmas spirit is still alive in
Port St. Joe and the surrounding
areas.

528A Fifth Street
Port St. Joe. FL 32456


A Quincy angler who decided
to kill a little time fishing at the
Jim Woodruff Dam on the Apa-
lachicola River last Tuesday is
Florida's new striped bass record
holder.
Alphonso (Al) Barnes landed
;a striped bass weighing 42.25
pounds at 2:30 p.m. in the tail-
race along the Jim Woodruff Dam
catwalk. Barnes' striper meas-
ured 44 inches in length and 28
inches in girth, and was caught
on a three- to four-inch live skip-
jack herring. The previous record
striper weighed 38.56 pounds
and was caught by Justin McAl-
pin of Sneads from the Florida
portion of Lake Seminole on No-
vember 15. 1979. Barnes, a 42-
year-old truck driver for a Bain-
bridge. Ga. company. has been a
striped bass fisherman for several
years. His 20-mile trip to the Jim
Woodruff Dam last Tuesday was
his fifth trip striper fishing since
the middle of October.
"I had about an hour to kill
before picking up my little girl
from school. Then it was time to
leave." Barnes said. "I stuck my
rod in the fence, turned around
and closed my tackle box, and
when I turned back around, he
hit."
Barnes said the big striper
headed diagonally across the riv-
er toward the barge lock, pulling
an estimated 100 yards of 25-
pound test line from his Ambas-
sador 6500 reel. He said it took
about 15 minutes to land his
fish.
Although there were a half-
dozen striper fishermen trying
their luck, Barnes -caught the
only striper on Tuesday. He took
his catch to Riverview Bait and
Tackle in Chattahoochee and a
Florida Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission fisheries biolo-
gist was summoned to certify his
fish.
GFC fisheries biologist Char-
lie Mesing examined Barnes' fish
and is also overseeing striped
bass restoration In the Apalachi-
cola River.
"There's a good possibility
Barnes' striper was stocked as a
fingerling In 1983 or 1986." Mes-
ing said. "We won't know for sure
until we can get a look at an oto-
llth."
He said otoliths are small
bones in the fish's head. They
have growth rings, like the rings
in a tree.
Mesing said fishermen in
winter and spring .target both
sunshine and striped bass. Sun-
shine bass are a hybrid cross of
the striped and white bass, and
have been stocked throughout
the state by the Commission
since the late 1970's.
He said there's been a resur-
gence In striped bass numbers
and fishing activity, largely due to
a cooperative agreement reached
in 1987 between the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service and conser-
vation agencies in Florida. Geor-
gia. and Alabama to restore popu-
lations of the Gulf race striped
bass.
Mesing said a concerted effort
has been made to collect parent
Gulf race striped bass from the
Apalachicola, Chattahoochee and
Flint rivers (also known as the
ACF system) and return offspring
to the river system. Since 1986.
he said the four cooperating
agencies have released almost 2.8
million Juvenile stripers.
Striped bass bag limits of
three fish per day. and a mini-
mum length of 18 inches in the
Panhandle area of Florida are de-
signed to help revitalize this po-
tential trophy fish.
