Plan To Deal



With Houses

Left Standing After Damage

By Fire and Lack of Care


In a meeting which lasted
less than an hour Tuesday night,
the City Commission decided to
embark on a program of cleaning
up derelict houses in north Port
St. Joe. The Commission has at-
tempted to clear out the run-
down housing in the past, but
nothing has seemed to work to
their satisfaction.
In their action Tuesday, the
board attempted to set up a sys-
tem which would allow the City to
remove the eye-sores, without in-
vading the territory of private
business in doing so. In the past,
the City has offered to remove
burned out buildings and those
in such bad disrepair nobody
would live in them on a cost basis
for the work.
Mayor Frank Pate asked pub-
lic works superintendent Frank
Healy how this offer was working,
Tuesday. Healy said he had fur-
nished proposals to several prop-
erty owners but had received no
answer, one way or the other.
Pate suggested the cost of the
City was still too much for the
property owners to pay to clear
the property. "$500 or $700 is a
lot of money for some people to
pay,, even though it is a cheap .
price to accomplish as much as it
is."
Pate suggested the City work
up a plan which would be cheap-
----er- and -more affordable t6o the
property owner in question. "We
might do the work for half price
and do it at our convenience,"
Pate suggested. "The half price
would cover our labor cost
wouldn't it?" Pate asked of Healy.'
Healy said it probably would.
with the remainder of the previ-
ous bids being for equipment and
fuel.
The Commission asked Healy
to study the problem and see if
the figure proposed by Pate would
cover labor expense and set out
some schedule for removal of the
homes on request
'We need to get this area
cleaned up. We're getting too
many complaints about the situa-
tion to allow it to continue," May-
or Pate said. 'We've tried other
methods with limited success.
Now we must try something else,
short of simply removing the old
dilapidated buildings and place a
lien against the property. Most of
the owners of the most offensive
buildings don't have the money to
pay for their removal."
GRANT WINDING DOWN
The Commission approved
the last three homes, to be reno-
vated under a grant program to fi-
nance the endeavor, Tuesday
night.
A program of renovating
homes of elderly needy people
has been in progress for nearly a
year and a half. .The program
doesn't provide for any new con-
struction but will only finance
home repairs to make a home


weather proof, and more liveable
for the occupants. The repairs are
made for elderly people on fixed
income who cannot afford to pay
for the repair or renovation work
themselves.
The program does things like
replace windows, overhaul
plumbing, replace rotting and de-
teriorated boards, insulate, install
heating, replace roofs and paint
The renovation program has been
managed, by Julian Webb Asso-
ciates of Chipley.
The final three jobs came to a
total of $49,802.53. The entire
program used up a grant which
totaled nearly $500,000.
OFFER RESOLUTION
The Board offered a resolu-
tion to the State of Florida and
the Gulf County delegation to the
Legislature, favoring a proposal
by the Florida Highway Patrol to
furnish round-the-clock coverage
by the FHP and place patrolmen
in residence in Gulf County.
A state budget proposal has
suggested placing three patrol-

J.L. Miller, Veteran Civic,

Business Leader, Dies
A long-time member of the
business community of Port St.
Joe died suddenly Monday morn-
ing at his home. John Lamar
[Pete] Miller, had been a resident
of Port St. Joe since 1938.
According to Miller's son, i
John, Miller had gone home to
change clothes and get ready to
keep a doctor's appointment at
2:00. Miller died getting ready for
the appointment, around 11:30. ,
Miller has long been a fixture
in the business and social world
here and was an influence in all "
of Gulf and Franklin Counties. He
waste retired owner of the The '
Miller Agency, a Cfievron Oil
agency, for the past 48 years. The
agency changed names several
times, as Standard Oil re-
organized over the years, but Mill-
er remained in charge of their
outlet here.
For many years Miller served
as a director of the Florida Na-

Special Master Recommends Raise


Special master James J. Sherman
said, in his opinion, given the first of this
week, Gulf County's 150 school teachers
should receive a five percent increase in
pay from the Gulf County School Board.
Superintendent of Public Instruction
Walter Wilder disagrees with him.
Sherman's report was made public in
a release to the Panama City News-
Herald Tuesday and printed in their
Wednesday edition.
"It's important that our teachers earn
a good living wage and I don't deny them
that opportunity, it's just that Gulf
County cannot presently afford that kind
of increase in salaries," Wilder said
Wednesday morning in rebuttal to Sher-
man's rulings.
"I would like to pay them the five per-
cent increase, but our tax revenue, which
would be used to finance any hike in sal-
aries, is inadequate to pay a five percent
increase," Wilder said. "We're already tax-


ing at a level of 7.7 mills. Even if we were
to hike this to the 10 mill limit, it still
wouldn't provide enough money to pay
the special master's suggested pay scale.
Our local tax revenue is actually declin-
ing," he continued.
EXCEPTION TO STATEMENT
The Superintendent also took excep-
tion to a statement by Sherman that,
"Unless this community places a higher
value on education and is willing to move
toward state standards with respect to
teacher's salaries, the consequences are
quite predictable."
"Mr. Sherman didn't even mention
our position as having the lowest drop-
out rate in the state, the highest percent-
age of graduates going from high school
to schools of higher learning in the na-
tion, of Gulf County's industry and citi-
zens setting the national pattern to fi-
nance higher education for its youth, of


being among the highest rankings in
mathematics, sciences and communica-
tion. These are accomplishments which
are not measured by teacher salaries,"
Wilder said.
BOARD TO STUDY REPORT
Wilder said the School Board would
take a look at Sherman's report at their
Board meeting Tuesday. "But, it's my re-
sponsibility to accept or reject the special
master's report," Wilder said, "and I have
20 days in which to take action. We will
just have to. study the report in detail
and see what portions we can adopt and
which ones we will be forced to reject. I
imagine the teachers organization likes
the report, and I would like to follow its
recommendations to the letter, but we
just can't at this time."
Wilder said there were some things

New Laws

THE NEW YEAR IS now six days old and we can't tell much
difference from the old one so far. It feels just like we had fin-
ished a holiday and gone back to work. We picked up a newspa-
per the other morning at breakfast time and, lo and behold,
there on the front page was a notice that several new laws were
on the books [along with the several thousand other laws] which
we are now expected to pay heed to.
There is one law which said it will reduce the workman's
compensation premiums. Undoubtedly that one means the pre-
miums the employer is paying out and not the premiums the
employee is collecting. It's nice to know someone is thinking of
.the employer for a change.
THERE WAS ANOTHER law to prohibit minors from pos-
sessing guns. Kids are shooting kids-and adults-at an alarm-
ing rate. Youth crime was already against the law. We hope the
authorities put enough teeth in their new anti-gun-toting law to
make it effective. Their law against.crime didn't work!
Beginning last Saturday, Florida authorities will strive to
keep criminals behind bars longer. Some criminals, that is. The,
ones who bother the most people by stealing their lawn mowers,
bikes, yard tools and breaking into their homes will still get early
release. But if they assault you, sell you dope, or shoot at you,
:they are in for a rude awakening.
PEOPLE WHO DRINK and drive had better not drink more
than .08 alcohol blood count, or things will be sort of hairy for
them. We understand there is going to be some license lifting go-
ing on along with other unpleasant activities.
Raising the legal blood alcohol content from .10 to .08 is
quite a drastic change but one we're not sorry to see. The con-
'tent law also extends to controlled substances, such as cocaine.
People who will deliberately get soused and then get out on the.
highway, knowing their reflexes are impaired to the point where
they stand a good chance of doing severe bodily harm to some
innocent person, should receive severe penalties.
: This will probably be the easiest law to police. Gulf County is
also receiving three new state troopers in the Governor's new
budget to help control this new law.
It's a long year; 365 days long. That sounds like a long time,
but we'll be celebrating the first ,day of 1995 before you know it.
Be here to celebrate it with us, hear?


Tough Decision

THE GULF COUNTY Commission seems to be having prob-
lems coming up with punishment fitting for any one of their em-
ployees who is charged with a felony. Some want to suspend
him from his job without pay and others want to see what the
courts are going to do with that charged employee before lower-
ing the employment boom on them. Some want to do it Immedi-
ately while others want to allow them some sort of income to pay
family expenses with. We can see both sides. If there ever was a
serious problem it would be not having enough money to pay the
expenses of one's family in the course of maintaining a home.
On the other hand, of course, someone who commits a felony
should think of his responsibilities to his family before he does
the wrong. In most nations of the world, one its,punished for
committing a crime. He goes awry of the law and he loses some-
thing he would rather not lose. That's the way the system works.
That's one of the deterrents to wrong doing. Really, doesn't a
person who commits a violation against the law, a criminal act
against mankind sort of play a game with the public? Doesn't
he/she say to you and I.; "I'm going to do this wrong thing over
here.. If you can catch me at it, I know I face punishment, but
I'm going to do it anyhow."
DOESN'T A PERSON weigh his options here? Doesn't he
elect to place himself and his family, injeppardy?
Is it the business of you or I or for his family to have to ab-
sorb the costs of that wrongdoing? No it isn't. If isn't our respon-
sibility, nor, unfortunately, that of his family. That is what
makes this decision so tough to make. The cad who commits the
crime gets his punishment and drags those least able to cope
with the situation down with him.
Some of the commissioners seem to be of the opinion one
shouldn't disturb the miscreant's lifestyle, greatly. Others say he
should be suspended without pay Immediately and forbid any
unemployment pay. As much as that sounds justifiable, isn't it
Just a little harsh on his innocent family. Yes it is, but maybe it's
necessary to prevent any further violations of the law by employ-
es.
We're glad we don't have to agonize over that decision. We
Just hope our Commissioners, on both sides of the question, do
just that: agonize long and seriously.


"Gosh, I dunno. I haven't
thought much about it." Buddy
eased back against the stone
bridge and wiped the blood from
his lip.
We all leaned in a little closer
to try to get a better look at the
cut. There was just too much
blood ....


lunker Down with Kes


Hope Springs Eternal


It was our last day of Christ-
mas vacation. We were making
the most of it down at Mr. Archie
Moore's frozen-over pond. Now,
none of us had ever seen a real
life hockey game, but we under-
stood it to be played on "froze
over ponds" with sticks and
something called a puck. We got
our sticks .off a nearby tree and
an old Pet milk can was "making
do" as our puck. We were ripping
and roaring right up until Buddy
got caught dead center with a
"shot".
It really wasn't a stone
bridge. It was a.culvert that Mr.


Archie laid some big rocks
around to help keep it in place.
We needed the shelter to assess
the damages. Ricky Gene had
asked Buddy if he had a New
Year's wish. I, think mostly he
was just trying to get his mind off
his lip.
Buddy looked up at Ricky
Gene and tried to grin, "I wish it
had been your lip instead of
mine."
We fell silent as the old rag
and the cold weather worked to
slow the bleeding.
I think we were all poniderihg
that question. I know in all of my

fourteen years I'd never really
thought about it. Mostly, I was
too busy enjoying tight where I
was to get too "concerned up"
about something that ain't even
got here yet. Of course, I'd heard
my folks talk but New Year's reso-
lutions and all that, but I don't
remember them ever making any.
A smart fellow ought to spend
some of his time thinking about
what's "out there" for him. You
know, it was an interesting
ques-
"I'll tell you what I wish," Jim
Bob broke the silence, "I wish
that I had me a twin, brother
whose sole purpose f9r 1962
would be to cut and haul fire
wood for me. Wouldn't that be
great!"
I caught myself nodding up
and down. I hated toting wood-
'You know what I'd do,"' Jim
Bob was getting excited about
this thing, "I'd let that fire get.
'down, just a little, then' I'd yell,
'Hey, Elvis, go get another log.'"
We all got a chuckle out of
that 'cause we all could relate. .
?"I wish Miss: Finsterwall
would have a heart attack .and
they'd get some young, pretty
English teacher in that actually
liked boys to take her place."
Again,m we, laughed at Ricky
Gene's wish 'cause, again, we.
could relate. ..
S'Yogi stirred and we turned, "I
hope sometime in this up-coming
year I get to kiss Mary Hadley
Purcell."
MARY HADLEY! I started to
say 'Yogi, are you bonkers! She
wears braces and she has sticks
for legs and freckles all over. ."
My thoughts kind'a trailed off.
Yogi was dead serious. Mary Had-
ley lived just down the road from
me.
She played ball with us 'til we
went off to little league. I hauled
hay with her all summer. She
kept her hair short and tied back.
she could out-run, out-swim.
out-fight she was just one of
us. I mean, and I wasn't about to
admit this out loud, I might.kiss
Belinda or Ann Carol or Kay King
if no one' was- teolting, butf Mary
Hadley, no way! Listen, I thought,
she was a boy until just a couple
of years ago.
Yogi didn't say anything else.
I reckon Mary Hadley was all that
he wanted.'
Buddy, the bleeding stopped
and the lip forgotten, joined in,
"My wish is. that Dr. Kimble
catches that one-arm guy. I'm so
tired of him having to hide out."
They fell silent and looked at
me. It, was, my turn but I'm not
sure I had a New Year's wish. I
think it's probably something you
ought to do some studying on be-
fore "declaring".
'W, ell, I wish I could make: all
A's ,without studying. I wish my
dad .would .lighten up on me a lit-
tle. And I wish just once I could
win a fight with my big brother."
Yogi and Ricky Gene nodded.
They had big brothers.
"Bud, you O.K.?"'
"Yeah."
"Let's get back on the ice. You

Never Mak A New Year's


Resolution You Don't Expect To Keep!


I WAS PRESENTED WITH
the final piece of Christmas tur-
key hidden inside a sandwich
New ,Year's Eve and some real,
food once more for supper Friday.
for the first time in nearly two
weeks. Now. it's back to the regu-
lar routine and activities which
are so familiar and which we feel
comfortable with.
I welcomed the New Year in
proper and acceptable fashion. I
was waiting the moment on TV
Friday night, watching the 11:00
news, waiting on midnight. Sud-
denly, Frenchie slapped me in
the face with a newspaper, from
her reclining position on the
couch, and shouted,. 'Wake up!
The New Year will be here in two
seconds!" Then Jay Leno shouted
"Happy New Year!" From Joe
Moore to Jay Leno in the blink of
an eye. I saw all I needed to see.
I took a couple of days off
and went out to scare the doves
both afternoons; an activity
which I dearly love to do but
which I seem to get an opportuni-


ty to do less and less. I do the
doves no harm, you understand,
just scare them into flying faster,
making them harder to hit.
BUT, WE'RE ALL faced with
a new year we must do something
with. Most of us are determined
to make the new year better than
the old, but when it's all over and
the next new year rolls around,
we are prone to refer to that time
which has passed as "the good
years" in our life.
If we could just make the
money and the "good years" come
along at the same time! Back
when I was energetic and wasn't


plagued with the aches and pains
which the elderly years bring with
them, I didn't have the money to
enhance the life I was enjoying.
Now that I am comfortable and
able to pay the bills as they come
due, it seems to take less and
less to please me.
I seem to find satisfaction in
a good book, a couple of hours
spent in my shop, sitting-or ly-
ing-in the easy chair before the
fireplace, watching the grandchil-
dren play a game of football or
baseball. Not much hard physical
work or exciting activity in watch-
ing, but it seems to be enough. I
guess you would say that as I get


older, I get, easier to please. Just
don't stir things up around me
and let me enjoy my spare time.

HOW AM I GOING to do
more ,;of this during the coming
year, without rusting away? I
3 don't really know, but one thing I
- am sure of; I'm not going to come'
to a complete stop during the
year. I am a firm believer, that if
you come to a halt, you get dirt
shoveled in your face.!
If I were to make a New Year's
resolution here at the beginning
of 1994 I guess it would be that I
might not proceed down the path
of life at a breakneck speed, but I
will proceed at a safe speed and
get just as much done as I can.
I'm not going to make any of'
the usual resolution's such as, re-
solve to exercise more. I'll exer-
cise as much, as I can, but I'm
not going to strain'anything.
Or, to lose weight. That's a
toughie. I might lose some and I.
might not. Frenchie stays on me


all the time about not eating too
much until I pretty much have it
down pat and don't over indulge.
But I can't promise you I'll lose
weight because of the already-
mentioned intention of my
amount of activity.
Don't stay up. too late. This
one is getting easier and easier to
keep. More and more I find myself
ready to go,to bed when bedtime
rolls around and less and less
prone to jump up, rearing to go in
the morning. That one will proba-
bly take care of itself.
Take at least two week end
trips during the year. You can bet
.on it! .
Never bet' on anything. You
can count on that too!
.Speaking of betting; don't
play the Florida or any other
.brand of lottery. That one will be
easy to keep, too. I have to save
up for my old age and I don't fig-
ure I can if I give my pennies
away to the lottery.
Go fishing more. I think I can


force myself to keep that resolu-
tion, also.
Come up with an interesting
column each and every week. I've
managed to break tlit one every
year, so I don't see much hope for
any change this year. But. I tried!

IN SHORT, THIS new year is
going to be spent in a sensible
way; a "smell the roses" way.
My Momma used to tell me,
"Don't be in such a hurry, you
have plenty of time." That's going
to be my motto during 1995. I'm
going to just keep on plugging
along at my particular speed and
try to get things done correctly
the first time.
My Momma:- was a diabetic
: and she took her time, saying,
'There's always tomorrow." Well,
she ran out of "tomorrows" a few,
years back and I have a suspicion
she didn't get "done."
I know I won't get "done," this
year, but I'm going to get closer to
the goal.

Another Yyar has come and gone. I hope 1994 is better than
1993-for me and-family, and yours, too.
Did we eat and drink too much during the holiday season? I
suppose you did if you are human, and I know I did.
An article I read in the paper on December 19 said there wasn't
a rash of multiple murders, but there sure seemed like a lot to me. I
can remember about five murders/murder-suicides within about
the last two or three months. Five may not be a lot, but one is one
too many.
Things sure are moving at a fast pace these days. It's hard to
keep up with what's happening. Why, just a few months ago I be-,
came a grandfather, and it happened overnight!
Have we had some terrible train crashes here lately or what?
Gee whizI I thought train travel was safe., I think I'll take a Grey-
hound on, my next trip.
A story from a local teacher goes: A group of students were
found kneeling in a circle at a school in Tallahassee. The school ofil-

It's tinps like the holiday season that I wonder about some of
my old friends that I haven't seen in. years. I was just thinking
about Cliff McCarstle, "Tomberry" Harrison, "Charley-Mac" McAr-
thur, Bill Bendle. Bill Thurman and a few more. I sincerely hope they
are dqing well.
Winter this year has been like some of the winters of years gone
by: rain and cold, rainy and hot, and a pretty day every now and.
then. Gee, I hope it doesn't snow this year.
Writing this column is one of my favorite things to do. There
have been times when I might have lost my mind if I didn't have
this to do. If you think I'm crazy anyway, that was just a lucky
guess
Did you read about the poor soul who had the 10 million dollar
winning lottery ticket only to find that he had washed it in his shirt
and turned it into a ball of lint? He threw it in the garbage on Sun-
day. Monday, he called the lottery department and they told him to
bring it in and they could run tests on it; if positive, they would pay
him the prize. He searched the garbage dump for days and the last
I hear he had not found it. I hope he's recovering well. Do you think
,he had a happy holiday season?
I changed.my New Year's resolutions this year. In the past I
have been making resolutions that no one could possibly keep;
things like cutting down on eating, getting more exercise, stop get-
ting mad at people who are unreasonable (won't see things my way)
and other impossible things.
There are a few things I'm going to attempt in 1994. l-am going
Sto endeavor to become a better husband, father, neighbor, business
associate, citizen, friend-and I am definitely going to become the
best grandfather there ever was.
Have a happy and safe New Year!

A new interactive exhibit de-
veloped by the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Consu'-
mer Services will help children
better understand that food
doesn't just come from the gro-
,cery store.
The educational exhibit,
called "Our Children, Our Fu-
ture", was unveiled recently at
the Florida Agricultural Museum
in Tallahassee. Second-graders
from a Tallahassee school attend-
ed the official opening and inter-
acted with the hands-on exhibit.
Florida Agriculture Commis-
sioner Bob Crawford believes the
exhibit will .help children under-
stand that buying food in the gro-
cery store is just the last step of
the food production process.
"Most people have become so
far removed from the source of
their food supply that they often-
are unaware of all the efforts that
go Into producing it." Crawford
said. "We hope that this educa-
tional exhibit will -teach children
at a very young age that it takes
the hard work of many people to
.bring food from the field to the
dinner table."
The hands-on exhibit Invites
children to follow the travels of
Florida produce. The children
start their journey by placing the
velcro-backed products at their
proper origin-such as in a field.
grove, pasture. etc. Next, the chil-
dren load up the toy truck that
travels along the country road to
the grocery store, where they un-
load the products and place them
in the proper bin. The children
then may shop at the grocery
store, choosing the farm-fresh
products for their families.
The permanent exhibit will be
located at the Florida Agricultural
Museum, located at the Depart-
ment's Agricultural Complex on
Conner Boulevard off Capital Cir-

CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM
^*fej CHILDREN'S HEALTH FORUM


PRESCRIPTIONS

By
Elizabeth C. Jones, M.D.


The following article was written by Kathryn Blake to appear in
the Nemours publication "Reaching Out". It is reprinted here with her
permission. .
Why should your child take medicines as the doctor has pre-
scribed them? These drugs are 'tools doctors use for children to
fight infection, treat disease, and relieve pain. The right drug, how-
ever, must be given to the right child, taken in the right amount
(dosage) and under the right directions to work well. Like any tool.
medicines must be used properly to have the right effect. Nemours
pharmacist Kathryn Blake-an expert on how medicines work in
the bodyi-says there are four basic parts of a prescription you
should know:
1. How often should the medicine be taken?
2. Are there any side-effects?
3. How should the medicine be taken?
4. How should the medicine be stored?
HOW OFTEN?
Medicines must be taken in ascertain amount (dose) to work
well. Dr. Blake says this Is especially true for antibiotics. For exam-
ple, the dose must be large enough and taken often enough to kill
the harmful bacteria. She says your child should take ALL the med-
icine on schedule. Do not "save: some for next time. Even if your
child feels better, the treatment is not complete until all of the med-
icine is taken.
Never "share" prescribed medicine. Two people, with the same
illness, may require different drugs taken under different directions.
SIDE EFFECTS
Many medicines, such as oriestaken to relieve pain. may cause
drowsiness or sleepiness. Dr. Blake says this is just the "nature" of
these medicines. They slow down the response of nerves. This ac-
tion reduces pain, but also may reduce how alert your child feels.
Other medicines may cause your child to be over-active or jittery.
WITH OR WITHOUT FOOD?
"Take on an empty stomach:" This means some foods may com-
bine with the medicine and keep It from working. 'Take with food:"
This 'means the medicine may upset your child's stomach if it is
empty. Food will not keep the drug from working.
STORAGE
Generally, medicines should be stored in a dry area, at room
temperature, and away.from direct sunlight. Moisture, very high or
low temperatures, and-sunlight may cause the drug to break down
and not work well. In some cases, however, the medicine will lose
Its power if it is not refrigerated.
SIfyou ever have any questions or concerns about a prescribed
drug, call your child's doctor or pharmacist.

Round-Up
By Jack Harper



Florida's residential insurance market is stabilizing since the havoc
of Hurricane Andrew and the creation of a state catastrophe trust fund,
but homeowners can expect to see their rates go up again in 1994 by an
average 10 or 15 percent statewide and higher in densely populated
coastal areas.
This after whopping rate increases in 1993 of 20 to 30 percent aver-
age statewide and up to 50 percent and more irfsome heavily populated
South Florida counties, state insurance officials said last week.
* The rates vary dramatically within the state and even within the,
counties. Waterfront homes pay the most, with oceanfront paying more
than river or lake locations. Inland Gadsden County in North Florida, fori
instance, got a 5-percent hike,in Allstate insurance rates in November.
Franklin County on the Gulf Coast got a 27-percent hike. With the same
company, coastal Brevard in Central Florida got a 22.5 increase, while
inland Orange County rates were hiked 12.5 percent. Biggest rate hikes
were in Dade county where Hurricane Andrew struck in August.
Both Insurance Commissioner Tom Gallagher, who is sounding like a4
candidate for governor again, and Gov. Lawton Chiles, now seeking re-
election, are calling for federal catastrophe-aid funding groomed some-
What like the package passed by the Florida Legislature in November. It
provides for bonds to be sold to cover claims from another disaster like
Hurricane Andrew, rather than insurers having to; come up with all the
money at once.
, Chiles and Gallagher say the federal government should adopt such
a program now. Specialists like House Insurance Committee Director-
Brian Deffenbaugh and Florida Insurance News Service Director Sam`
Miller say that would be at least three years or more away if, indeed. It
ever happens.
"I can't really see the federal government taking on that load," Deffen -
baugh said. "President Clinton is going to be busy with health care."
Miller said insurance companies would probably be interested in
such a development and Cliff Burns, a State Farm insurance agent in
Leon County, said it is something that Clinton would probably consider
worthwhile.
IT'S PIE-IN-THE-SKY TIME in Tallahassee with 1994 elections in
November. A governor, some state senators and house members are to be,
elected, but Clinton has three more years before he faces the voters
again.,
Chiles said a federal disaster fund would protect taxpayers from pay-
ing the price ofcleaning up natural disasters because insurance compa-
nies would pay premiums to the federal government to finance the fund.
What he doesn't say, of course, is that insurance companies get
those premiums from homeowners with higher rates allowed by the state.
In the end, the public is going to pay for any state or federal program. In
this case. by higher insurance rates, state and federal officials will allow
the insurance companies to charge homeowners or buy bonds backed by
taxes. ,
NEWS ROUND-UP
SAFE STREETS LAW. A quick reaction to Florida's new Safe Streets
Law has come from rural Suwannee County where the state attorney
who nailed Ted Bundy said in a New Year's Day story that the new sen-
tencing guidelines will not work unless there are enough prison beds to
incarcerate criminals.
'"We were sold a bill of goods 10 years ago when we went to sentenc-
ing guidelines. The old guidelines'were complicated enough, but the new
ones are much more so.," State Attorney Jerry Blair told the Suwannee
Democrat newspaper at Live Oak.
The Safe Streets Act, passed last summer, became law January 1. It.
includes new sentencing guidelines which force judges to send only the
most violent criminals to state prisons. Alternative programs. such as
probation, house arrest, and county jail time will be used in lieu of pris-
ons. .'
C* g"-the'-eew guidelines "computer" justice-whlti,.,hekapposes-.-
Blair said the new law was designed solely to control the number of peo-
pie going to prison by balancing the prison population with prison beds
available.
Blair.said that many non-violent criminals who should receive prison
time will be put on probation or house arrest and be back in the commu-,
nity committing crimes again. "It (the new sentencing law) will not work
unless we have the ability to incarcerate those who fail the probation pro-
gram," Blair said.
Blair was the state attorney whose office successfully prosecuted se-:
rial killer Ted Bundy, eventually sending him to the electric chair at Ral-
ford. ,
Suwannee County Sheriff Robert Leonard agreed with Blair. and add-
ed that the answer Is not just to build more prisons, but to make the
punishment a deterrent to the crime.
"Used to, we had probation and people would take probation because
they dreaded going to prison," Leonard said. "Now, I hear them telling the
judge. 'Send me to prison. Don't give me probation."'
The change, he said, is because they know they will get out of prison
in four months or so and prisons are no longer a deterrent. Leonard said
that one of the reasons that prisoners in the new jail that he is running
will not be allowed to have tobacco products is so that they will want to
stay out of his jail.
A CHALLENGE? Bill DeCrove, a demographer who was in charge of
creating Florida's Third Congressional District. said it Is nearly identical
to one ruled illegal last week by a federal panel in Loulslana and is now
open for a legal challenge.
Both districts were created to. insure minority representation. The
oddly shaped Florida district cuts through 14 counties, winding from
Lake City down to noitl Orlando, skirting white majority voting districts
along the way. U.S. Rep. Corrine Brown, D-Jacksonville. won the post in
1992 election.
MOB VICTIMS. Rep. AI Lawson. D-Tallahassee. has filed a $7 million
bill to compensate victims and create a memorial for survivors of Rose-
wood, a small black community on Florida's Gulf Coast that was de-
stroyed by a white mob in 1923.
Lawson, chairman of the Florida Black Caucus, said $7 million is a
small price for Florida to pay for its failure to protect residents of Rose-
wood during that week of violence that erupted after a white woman said
she had been attacked by a black man.
House "Speiker Boley (Bo) Johrison, D-Milton, ordered a $50,000
study earlier last year to document the historical accuracy of the massa-
cre. Reports of a mass grave in the town, however, are still unconfirmed.
The bill calls for payments ranging from $15,000 to $270,000 to 11 sur
vivors and nearly four dozen descendants. Another $1 million would be
spent on a memorial at the site on the Gulf Coast about 100 miles north
ofTampa. "

Many people do not re-

In the knees may be
caused by problems with
the feet. Such disorders of
the feet as overpronation
("rolling-in" of the ankles
during running or walk-
ing), rigid pes carus (fail-
ure of the arch to flatten
when bearing weight), or,
bunions (abnormality in
the joint of the big toe) can
put unnatural stresses on
the muscles and ligaments
of the leg. leading to knee
pain.
Your podiatrist can di-
: agnose foot problems
which might be causing
pain in the knee. He or
she might prescribe exer-
cises to strengthen mus-
cles in the feet and lead to
a healthier walk. Another
option is a virtually unmo-
ticeable soft orthotic de-
vice to be worn in the shoe
to correct certain kinds of
abnormal-arid pain caus-
ing-strides. Regardless of
the cause, no foot or leg
pain should be allowed to
go unexamined.

SBoating Safety Facts:
Seventy-four people died in
Florida last year in recreational
boating accidents, more than
,double the national average. An-
other 641 were Injured..
In 1992, Florida reported
1,004 boating accidents, and al-
most 709% of the boat operators
had no formal boating safety in-
struction.


Over 50% of boating acci-
dents involve alcohol. The con-
sumption of alcohol decreases the
balance, coordination, vision and
judgement to operate a boat safe-
80% of the people who die
each year in Florida boating acci-
dents would be alive today if they
had worn a life jacket. Personal
flotation devises are the most im-
portant safety feature aboard any
boat.

Leery of Telephone Solicitors?


0rder Fre

Floridians who are trying to-
decide whether tdo contribute to
charitable organizations .. now
have the benefit of a guide that
shows how much they spent last
year on program services, admin-
Istration, and fund raising.
Florida Agriculture Commis-
sioner Bob Crawford this week
announced the availability of the
"Gift rivers Guide", noting that
this is the first time this informa-
Stion has been made available to
the public.
"Certainly, Floridians should
consider more information about
a charitable organization than
what's contained In this guide,"
Crawford said. "But this guide
gives consumers Information they
need to ask relevant, questions
eand become informed.",
The Legislature gave the De-
partment of Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services responsibility for
registering charitable organiza-
tions in 1992.- The Department
receives the financial information
contained in the guide directly
from the organizations, which
provide copies of their federal in-
come tax filings.
'Too often, government acts
as a giant warehouse of informa-
tion that the public doesn't know
exists," Crawford said. "We
thought it would be a public ser-
vice to make this Information
available to the Floridians in a
form they can use."
For most charitable organiza-
tions soliciting In Florida. the
guide lists the organization's total
breakdown of how much was
spent on administrative expens-
es, program services and fund
raising.

e Gift Givers Guide"


Crawford stressed .that Flo-
ridians should not automatically
rule out contribution to a charita-
ble organization just because its
administrative or fund-raising
costs are high.
'There may be a legitimate
explanation for why a charitable
organization's administrative or
fund raising costs were high in a
given year. For instance, adminis-
trative costs may be high during
an organization's initial start-up
period or during a building con-
struction project," Crawford said.
'This guide -gives consumers :a
chance to ask the right questions
and get the answers they need to
make informed choices."
The guide lists most charita-
ble organizations that solicit con-
tributions In Florida-whether or
not they are based here. New or-
ganizations that have no financial
history to- report are listed, but
without a financial breakdown.
Also included is a list of organiza-
tions that are exempt from filing
a detailed financial report and a
section listing professional solici-
tors and fund-raising consul-
tants.
The guide also contains tips
for giving and answers to com-
monly asked questions. Among
the tips are these:
Don't judge a charitable or-
ganization solely on the .basis of
an impressive sounding name.
Find out what they actually do.
Be wary of emotional ap-
peals and organizations that have
only vague plans for spending the
funds they collect.
If you have additional ques-
tions. ask for a copy of a charita-
ble organization's financial report

Care for Your


Living C

If you were the lucky recipi-
ent of a dish garden, potted flow-
er. or foliage plant this Christ-
mas. you are probably wondering
how you should care for your "liv-
ing" gift. Most homeowners kill
their plants with kindness-
literally!
Over-watering and over-
fertilizing often cause more prob-
lems than a lack of these essen-
tials for plant growth. Keep the
following ideas in mind and your
plants will be with you for many
years to come.
-, First of all, there is no such
thing as a "house plant"-a plant
intended to grow Inside a home,
office, or other building. When
plants are grown Indoors, several
restrictions are imposed upon
them. Lack of sufficient light and
low humidity are probably the
most severe restrictions, but tem-
perature can also be a problem.
Many foliage plants prefer a
relatively strong, filtered or dif-
fused light. Places near windows
or light fixtures are usually suita-
ble. but avoid direct sunlight or
Very dark areas of the home.
Flowering plants such as mums
and poinsettias will stand more
light than foliage plants and
should be placed In bright areas.
Watering is one of the chief
causes of failure with plants in
the home, especially for contain-
ers which don't have drainage
hole. Generally speaking, most
.:house plants will require a thor-
.6ugh soaking once a week. Water
only when necessary and don't let
the pots stand in saucers of water
unless the plants are very toler-
ant to excess water. Overwatering
can kill the plant roots and In-
crease chance of disease and
eventually kill the entire plant.
Most plants grow well in tem-
peratures of 60-70 degrees. Don't
place the plants in drafty loca-
tions where sudden changes in
temperature occur, and don't
place plants close to radiators or
air conditioners.'
Proper fertilization is another
important part of growing healthy
plants. Follow all the directions in
the container so that you don't
over-fertilize your plants. Too

much fertilizer can eventually kill
your plants.
Watch for the common symp-
toms of foliage plant troubles
which are as follows:
Brown tips or burned mar-

PORT ST. JOE, 66
BAY HIGH, 45
It was a new experience for
Bay High. It was the same thing.
the Sharks had experienced sev-
en times thus far in the young
season. Bay High lost, and lost
big, for the first time this season
and the Sharks won, 66-45, in,
the championship game of the
Gulf County Classic Thursday
night.
Bay High jumped right on the
Sharks at the sound of the start-
ing whistle and had them down
18-7 at one time during the
game. But Chad Quinn sank a
short jumper about three min-
utes into the third quarter to give
the Sharks the lead, which they
never relinquished the remainder
of the game.
With the Sharks in a devas-
tating man-to-man defense for
most of the game the lightning-
like moves of Mario Larry and
Jermaine Larry kept the Torna-
does fighting to regain control of
the game, despite the desperate
urging of their coach to "Just play
your game".
Port St. Joe was behind on
the scoreboard, 35-30 at the rest
stop, but made up for their lack
of points in the final half. The
Sharks outscored Bay 20-4 in the
third period to put the game on
ice. They allowed the Panama
City team only six points in the fi-
nal period while the Sharks were
. pouring 16 poinrits through the
nets. Bay scored only 10 points
the entire second half.
Chad Quinn scored 18 points
to take high point honors for the
Sharks. Damon Walker added 14.
The Sharks scored four 3-
point baskets with Damon Walker
having two and Chad Quinn and
Des Baxter each with one.
