Building Permits


Rebound in '93


The number of building per-
mits .for new homes in Gulf
County took a dramatic rise last
year. Don Butler, director of the
Building Department for the
county revealed that just permits
for new homes took nearly a 47%
hike in. 1993, with the relaxation
of mortgage rates throughout the
nation. New, homes permitted in
1993 numbered 81. The previous
year, 55 permits for new homes
were Issued throughout the
county.
"The dollar amount also took
off this. past year,. 'with
$7,754,590.50 the value of all
types of construction in the
courity," stated Butler.


Will Enforce Dr

Employees on
Gulf County: is going to have
a drug free work 'place. The only
thing still to be decided is how
lenient or how tough the work
place will be on those employees
who might abuse drugs in the fu-
ture.
After making the decision
Tuesday night, the board decided
to hold a workshop and come up
with the parameters by which the
decision will be applied.
Commissioner Billy Traylor
set the matter in motion Tuesday,
when he called for mandatory pe-
riodic drug testing of all employ-
ees who work for the county. "We
place the taxpayers at tremen-
dous liability when we take no ef-
forts to see that our employees
are ,not impaired on the job by,
drugs," he said' Traylor then
called for the mandatory testing
rule to be approved. "We've gone
too long without a policy on this
matter." he said.
Financial officer. Doug Birm-
ingham, himself once a Commis-
sioner, said, "You already have a
drug policy for your employees.
All you have to do Is enforce it."
Traylor replied. "That's greatly
Let's find out what it says and
put it to use!"
Commissioner Nathan Peters
acknowledged Birmingham's
statement by saying, "I took a
drug test as an example to our
employees when that rule was
. put into effect. Mr. Birmingham "
and I both took it."
Commissioner Michael Ham-
mond said, "When we look at it

The building official said new
housing construction is still on
the rebound with nearly as many
permits sold in fiscal 1994 as
were sold in 1993.
The largest number of new
home permits were in the county
at large, Butler said. With most of
the new home permits being pur-
chased for the Beach area. the
county still experienced a healthy
growth in the rural areas as well.
New home permits totaled 60 for
the year, 'valued at $3,939.162.
Mobile home permits which ac-
counted for most of the other ru-
ral housing units totaled 98. We-

what the employee will be fired.
We'll give him a second chance
but not a third!"
Commissioner Armstrong
said he favored a drug test if it
contained a rehabilitation
clause. "We should try to rehabili-
tate, our men if they are found to
be using drugs."
Chairman Warren Yeager fa-
vored the move also, so the Com-
mission is unanimously in agree-
iment on this question. They-may
disagree on most other controver-
sial matters, but it is already set
in stone. that there will be 'no
drug use by county employees;
even before the text of the rule is
agreed on.
The testing will be required
for new hires, with periodic test-
ing to be performed.
ANOTHER MEETING ROOM
Commissioner Traylor. also
suggested the Board begin think-
ing about an addition to the
Courthouse or moving to another
portion of the building to conduct
Commission meetings. "We need
t0 give this space to the Sheriff.
He desperately needs more space
and with the implementation of
911, he will be even more crowd-
ed. This room is the ideal room to
be added to his department," he
said: .. .
The present Commission
meeting room was originally .de-
signed for use by the Sheriffs De-
partment when the Courthouse
was first built. When the building
was occupied, it was comman-
deered for use by the School
Board and later on was pressed

-If We Were...

IF WE WERE A MEMBER of the school teacher's union we
would be working for our union to break away from the Bay
County school teachers' union, quit following their lead and di-
vorce my group from the negotiations of Jackie Sweat and the
public negotiations by special master James Sherman.
For these two union negotiators to demand that a county
hike taxes in order to give school teachers a 5% raise, one short
month following the receipt of the tax notices is the height of
stupidity it would seem to us.
Tax payers aren't finished with complaining about their high
tax bills and somebody comes along, not even elected by them,
and demands that they pay even more taxes even insinuates
they aren't trying hard enough to provide better schools.
TEACHERS MAY NEED a raise in pay, but Jackie Sweat and
James Sherman would never get it out of us with their tactics,
that's for sure!
You see, we are all trying. We're trying hard to be fair about
the wages we pay our teachers. We .don't know about Bay
County. They may not be playing fair. But, with the mere sug-
gestion that Tyndall Air Force Base may be on the government
hit list, makes all of bay County tax payers leery of their finan-
cial future. Teachers and Jackie Sweat should be a little appre-
hensive about their economic future, too.
Then there is the fact that the economy in the United States
,is more than a little sluggish. People are even looking at the cost
of universal health care before they worry about what they will
get out of it and you know times are still a little tough. There
isn't money to do everything we wish to do.
WE HAVE A VESTED. Interest. in teachers receiving more
money. We also have a vested interest in providing that money.
Getting it from a limited tax base like Gulf County's is almost
like an exercise in futility. One, can't expect a small county to'
make up the. difference which the state department refuses to
give. .
Neither do we appreciate these two so-called "experts" telling
us we don't care about our school teachers, our schools or our
children. We have an opinion too and that is that when they
make a statement like that, they are full of baloney!
Let them stay in Bay County and stir up all the animosity be-
tween the teachers and the general public they want to over
there. We're capable of managing our own affairs over here.


A Fair Jury

AN ARTICLE IN THE paper the other day told of a Fort Lau-
derdale prosecutor grumbling because a Florida Appeals Court
had ruled, protecting women from being excluded from juries be-
cause of their gender, claiming that only white males could be
excluded because of their race or color of skin,
Already the prosecutor said it is hard to find a white male on
any jury because of preferences of either/or the defense or pros-
ecution attorneys wanted .a weighted jury rather than an impar-
tial jury who will base his verdict on the evidence, rather than be
swayed by gender or color.
WASN'T THIS THE BALANCE we were hunting for in our
courts .. verdicts based on the evidence, not on'prejudices nor
on reasons other than evidence presented or rebutted? Haven't
we. had all sorts of social upheaval during the past three or four
dseades for this same reason? Do we find we don't want fairness
in our courts about the time we reach our goal?
Taking away our prejudices and own ideas about how things
should be, shouldn't we strive in an unbiased manner for our
courts to be fair with their verdicts? Don't we all have a stake in
this, defendant and private citizen as well?
What we are drifting toward is going to court to get mercy
rather than Justice.
A Fort Lauderdale attorney, in commenting on the situation
says he fears, the courts will eventually ban all peremptory jury
clillenges. Most attorneys will say their case is either won or
lost'with their selection of a jury. If they can't exercise any objec-
tions to some of the people who happen to be picked to make up
the; venire'won't the fate of someone coming before the courts be
decided, before he ever goes to trial? If we must accept anyone
who walks in the door, how can we be tried by our peers? It's
feasible for an entire jury to be made up with people other than
our peers. --
If a ruling says you can't discriminate against women be-
cause of gender so why wouldn't it protect men for the same rea-
son? If the law says you can't discriminate against men because
they are black, why couldn't just such a law be used to defend
the right of an attorney to choose a white man, without fear of
exclusion? One of the basic rights is to a free trial. One can't get ,
that under any circumstances unless one can select a fair ju ry.

All Is Not Lost!


Dove Season Used to Attract Most Men's Attention in the Fall


:SATURDAY WAS THE final
day; of dove season this year. It
slipped away with hardly any no-
tice at all. I went twice during the
season, and enjoyed the outing
even though I didn't get my limit.
I don't use the Game Depart-
ment limit as a guideline, like
other people do. My limit is more
like six or, eight birds.
,It seem's like everybody.has
shifted to hunting deer these
days. I have stuck to dove hunt-
ing :because it is something I can
do and I enjoy it. I have always
liked dove hunting, even though I
have nearly quit the activity dur-
ing recent years.
I went on the final day
though. It was the second time
this year after not going at all last
year. I took my old Browning
"Sweet 16" out of the closet, oiled
it down and dug out a couple of
boxes of shells and hit the corn-
field. I still had shells from some-
time in the past when I had pur-
chased them for a shoot and


ETA OIN SHRDLU


By Wesley Ramsey


didn't use them all.


EVERYBODY THESE days
seems to be deer hunting. Chuck
Locke came by the office Friday
morning to have a picture taken
of the 10-point buck he had shot.
Deer hunters have become so nu-
merous and their success so com-
monplace they hardly ever do
that anymore. A few years ago, if
a hunter had the good fortune to
shoot even a small spike buck, he
looked us up to have a picture
taken of that prowess in the
woodlands, believe you mel If he
should shoot a 10-point, .he


would haul it around on his pick-
up truck, showing it off until the
meat rotted off the bone. Now, it
sort of seems to be a ho-hum ex-
perience.

I COULDN'T SHOOT one of
those majestic-looking, beautiful
animals with their regal bearing.
It even made me feel bad one day
when I ran into a couple of the
brown beauties a few years ago,
killing them.
Thanksgiving week end, when
I was in south Tennessee, I went
to Cade's Cove, which is just a
huge meadow snuggled inside a


gaggle of mountains, which con-
.tained a couple of restored pio-
neer settlements. N6W, the mead-
ow supports a herd of 'deer,
instead of.a herd of cows. Now,
you deer hunters who have had
your interest piqued by this Infor-
mation can just simmer down.-
Cade's Cove is a park with tang-
ers and everything.
Those majestic deer there
would just stand around, preen-
ing, flaunting their regal racks,
posing for the photographers like
the buck on the Hartford Insu-
rance logo.
How could anyone shoot
such a beautiful, trusting ani-
mal?
We just enjoyed admiring
their beauty and drove on.
IT SEEMS LIKE IT was only
yesterday when the town seemed
to empty out on Saturday after-
noon with men headed toward
the dove fields of Calhoun
County. You could see most a---


of your friends riding the roads,
or waiting alongside the fence of a
corn field.
When MK Ranches were
planting peanuts and soybeans
up around Dalkeith, their fields
would attract men every after-
noon and week end, shooting
away at the swift wild pigeons.
The doves always seemed to
come in with the wind at their
tail, giving them just a little more
boost to their already swift flight.
It took an excellent shot to have
any regularity at all to his suc-
cess at killing doves.
I CAN REMEMBER excellent
shots I have known and nearly
count them on the fingers of one
hand. There was Spotball Barbee,
Aubrey Tomlinson, Tommy Prid-
geon. and his dad, Tom. Frank
Hannon was a dead shot with his
double barrel. Frank Rowan
would swivel around on his wood-
en leg and like E. F. Hutton,
when his .410 pump spoke, he
got results!


People like Red Gunn, Frank
Pate, Dr. Wayne Hendrix, the Hi-
note boys, Welton Roche and
many others were avid dove hupt-
ers. All you had to do was gather
at one of the service stations in
town on Saturday about noon
during dove season, and you were
included in a hunting party.
I remember, one time, we
were shooting a field just off
Highway 71, on the Kinard Road,
when about mid-afternoon Red
Gunn- appeared in a full dress
suit. He had been to Marianna to
attend a meeting, but he had his
shotgun in his car and stopped to
join the shoot. He started out
across the field in that full dress
suit and as he climbed over the.
barbed wire fence, the pants split
in the seat along the seam. Red
just shrugged and went on across
the field. First things first. you
understand.
Those were good days. Any
tidbit of the same experience is
more than welcome.

Why Women Live Longer Tnan Men
The mortality tables give the years-men know it, and some
women know it, but for some strange reason, no one will say why.
Why do women outlive men by over a decade?
After years of exhaustive and intricate study and research, I
have reached a scientific and reasonably sound reason why women
outlive men by several years. Mind you, the conclusions herein are
based ONLY on MY research and not information I have plagerized
from someone else. Are you ready?
Women outlive men because .... THEY DONT WORRYI! That's
right, women don't worry; at least, not like men do.
I'm convinced this is true, and my study proves it.
Admittedly,, some women worry more than some men. I've seen
it in several marriages or couples; where the man seemed to be a
happy-go-lucky type fellow, never worrying about tomorrow, and
the woman was literally tearing her hair out. But these cases are
few.
I know what some of the women are saying right now. They are
saying, "I worry plenty; much more than anyone knows!" That, my
dear, may be true; but if it is, how do you sleep so soundly at
night?
My study reveals the following: throughout the past 10 years, I
was up during the night 1,462 1/2 times worrying about something
that to me was of life and death importance. Of all those times, my
'wife woke up only once (one time), and that was to get a drink of
water. Although I was wide awake with both eyes wide open, she
didn't even ask me what was wrong. She just said, "Why don't you
turn out the light and go to sleep?"
There was plenty for both of us to worry about but she just
didn't seem interested in worrying at 2 a.m., although I had told her
of the impending danger just before we went to bed. As a matter of
fact, I have toldW her each and every time there was something to
worry about but, to my knowledge, she hasn't missed a wink.
And I know for a fact that she hasn't gone out and gotten
drunk; not one time!
Want to know what else my study revealed? It shows that wom-
en either have a unique ability to tune problems out or-now get
this-they think, '"Well, he's going to worry about it and stay up all
night so there's no need for me to worry about it. He'll come up with
something before daylight."
I haven't pin-pointed the exact reaction, but I, think it varies
with different women.
Men, have you heard this one when you were worried about
something? The wife or girlfriend, knowing that you are worried
about some Impending catastrophe, says to you, "Why don't you go
play golf or go fishing and get your mind off it for a while?" Doesn't
she realize'she's throwing you out of the frying pan into the fire?
Doesn't she realize the suicide rate among golfers and fishermen is
one of the highest in the sports world? A troubled mind worrying
about a golf shot or the-one-that-got-away is a mind in danger.
Yes, it's true;.women live longer because they worry in spurts or
they don't worry at all. Scarlett said it in her closing line in the fa-
mous movie, Gone with The Wind; "Oh, well. I'll just worry about
that tomorrow." or something to that effect.
Rhett would have said, "Well, there may not be anything I can
do about her leaving, but I'm going to stay up all night and worry
about it!"
Then he would have gone in and drank himself into oblivion
and made things worse and died 10 years before Scarlelt!


William Ricardo McCoy of
307 Avenue C has been charged
with one count of burglary, six
counts of dealing in stolen prop-
erty and one count of grand theft
and lodged in the Gulf County
Jail by the Port St. Joe Police De-

Food Store here In Port St. Joe,
on Monument Avenue. Chief Carl
Richter said Donna Mathis of Ho-
ward Creek is being held in Gulf
County Jail awaiting her first ap-
pearance for being charged with

Boating Use. On the Incr-ase


- The Game and Fresh Water
Fish Commission reminds boat-
ers to be on the defensive when
cruising along Florida's water-
ways. With the increase of recrea-
tional vessels traveling the state's
rivers, lakes and other waters, de-
fensive driving is as important on
the water as it is on the road.
Boats, unlike cars, don't have


brakes, and boaters, unlike mo-
torists aren't required to take a
test, pass a course or be of mini-
mum age to operate a vessel.
Last year, more than 1,000
boating accidents and 80 boating
fatalities were recorded in Flori-
da. That's more than in any other
state and the Commission is
working to reverse it.

wahitchka also had 23 mobile
home permits. Port St. Joe had
no mobile home permits because ,
the city has no areas zoned, for
mobile homes.
Butler. who, has charge of
building permits for the cities of
Wewahitchka, City of Port St. Joe
and Gulf county; said housing
was, broken. .own as 16 new'
units for Port St. Joe and five for
Wewahitcka.
The second largest item of
building activity shown through-
out the county were the permits,
for remodeling, expansion and"


miscellaneous building. The re-
modeling business was going
great with 38 permits Issued in
Pott St. Joe, eight in Wewahitch-
ka and 74 for the remainder of
the county. The miscellaneous
permits were for a total value of
$1,823,303.
Butler said his department
collected $84,453.96 in building
permit fees during 1993.
Butler said the permit totals
didn't reflect two major projects
in the county. "We didn't charge
the new church in Port St. Joe,
nor the school project in Wewa-
hltchka for a permit."

OTHER BUSINESS
In other business, the Board:
-Instructed Chairman Yeag-
er to proceed with negotiations to
purchase property for a boat
landing in the Simmons Bayou
area. Yeager is dealing with a
property owner for 275 feet, 75'
deep along C30 and a 15' corridor
to the Bay as a launch site.
--Agreed to shut down all
county operations Monday, in ob-
servance of Martin Luther King's
birthday.
-Agreed to stick by the
agreed-upon $345,000 payout for
Raffield Fisheries. The federal
government is attempting to hike
the total after previously agreeing
to the final figure for the county.


"Every boater needs to know
what his responsibilities are. Un-
til we have a more safety con-
scious public, the number of
boating accidents will stay high."
Capt. Bob Poole. the Commis-
sion's boating safety coordinator,
said.
'Taking -a boating safety'
course may be the best way to
prevent accidents," Poole said. "It
sharpens boating skills and en-
hances knowledge."
The basic rules of navigation
. are designed to prevent collisions
and other hazards. Like driving.
boating necessitates observing
rules and watching for informa-
tional signals and other traffic.
The Commission encourages


boaters to be "boat smart" by en-
rolling in the free boating safety
course it offers. The eight-hour
class covers a variety of topics in-
cluding how to select the "right"
watercraft, boating etiquette,
rules of navigation, legal require-
ments, emergency procedures,
proper safety equipment and the
danger of drinking while operat-
Sing a boat.
S The Florida Game and Fresh
Water Fish Commission's free
boating course is taught through-
out the year.
"We will schedule a class any-
Where and any time there are
enough people who express an in-
terest," Poole said. "Special
Courses also can be scheduled


pect," the Chief said.
McCoy was found to be in
possession of several Items which
had been reported missing in-
cluding an electric welder, TV's, a
microwave, building materials.
Items reported stolen in the Pan-
ama City area included a boat,
outboard motor, mortar mixer
and several other items. "All told,
McCoy had about $5,300 worth
of items reported as stolen in his
possession," Richter said.
Investigation of the com-
plaints and of McCoy are being
continued by Sgt. Tim Hightower
and Officer Troy Simmons. In the
meantime, McCoy Is being held in
the county Jail' on a $15,000
bond.

Rich Strawberry Cheesecake without the Guilt


The following recipe for
Guilt-Free Strawberry Cheesecake
has the flavor of the rich cheesecake
you've .always loved, without the
extra calories.
Gingersnaps, one of the cookies
that are lowest in fat, add an unusual
twist to a traditional crumb crust.
With a rolling pin, crush the cookie
crumbs in a gallon-size Reynolds
Sure-Seal zipper bag. Sure-Seal
zipper bags are strong enough to
withstand the pressure of crushing
cookies for the cheesecake crust.
Use the same bag as a mixing bowl
for the remaining crust ingredients.
.The quart-size zipper bag is just
right as a mitt. to protect hands

With only four ingredients in the
cheesecake' filling, the recipe is a

and egg whites cut fat and cholesterol
in the filling while the topping is

Genial Jim McKnight, manag-
er of North Florida Medical Cen-
ter, gave the Rotary Club a bird's-
eye view of what his organization
is about here in the Panhandle of
Florida-particularly four coun-
ties of the Panhandle-in the
world of providing medical care
for a lot of people.
The Center has headquarters
in Wewahitchka and satellite op-
erations in Carrabelle, Panacea,
and Bristol, where they offer med-
ical and dental care.
McKnight said the North Flor-
ida Medical Center is a private or-
ganization which is not for profit.
The 'not for profit' portion of their
operation makes the health or-
ganization eligible for government
funds; particularly pay for care to
those who cannot pay or who
seek medical care on the Medi-
care plan.
McKnight said that where a
private [for profit] physician who
'' accepts medicare patients may
bill the federal government
$30.00 for his, services and re-
ceive $18.00 after a three or four
month wait. "We bill the federal
government for the same $30.00
for the same treatment and get
$60.00 in return within 10 days.
No matter how much we bill the
federal government, we are paid
$60.00: whether we bill $20.00 or
$250.00, we still receive payment
of $60.00."
"We can secure government
funds because we 'provide medi-
cal .and dental care in Gulf.
Franklin, Wakulla and Liberty
cou n ties to whomever comes in,"
McKnight said. 'We have patients
we charge on a sliding scale as to
ability to pay, medicaid. medi-
care, Insurance, and self pay.'

ernment funds is that our doors

McKnight said there are sev-

serve, "and five of these are on
our staff. We have a staff of five
doctors, three nurse practition-
ers, two physician's assistants,
and one dental practitioner serv-
ing the four county area."
Only the Wewahitchka Clinic
could stand on its own, according
to McKnight and even then there
would have to be some changes
made about who pays and who
doesn't. "We'd have to do away

Gait Problems
Dictionaries define the
,word "gait" simply as the way
in which a person walks or
runs. Observation of a per-
son's gait by the podiatrist
can yield clues to a variety of
problems, some in the feet
and some resulting from o'ver-
all health disorders.
In a normal, smooth gait,
the body's weight is support -
ed briefly by one foot while
the other is moving forward.
Limping results from shorten-
ing the time .that one foot
bears the weight, often be-
cause of some painful condi-
tion in that foot. There are
other types of gait abnormali-
Sties, and many causes. As
people grew, older, walking
more slowly and taking short-
ger steps is not unnatural. But
real gait problems in the eld-
erly sometimes are wrongly
viewed as part of the aging
process. Abnormal gaits may
result from conditions that
can be treated successfully or
they might be signs of major
disorders. Strokes. Parkin-
son's disease and, other disor-
ders each can cause a dis-
tinctive type of gait pattern.
An abnormal gait calls for a
professional evaluation of the
cause and what might be
done about it.

Noa Stitch



Cataract Surgery


B l d oe g Ner Scha

(Bulldog News


0. Lee Mullis, M.D.
Board Certified
Eye Physician & Surgeon
Dr. Lee Mullis of Panama City
cites cataracts as one of the
major causes of reduced vi-
sion in older adults today.
However, with the new de-
velopments in eye surgery, no
longer should any adult suffer
loss of vision from cataracts.

No-Stitch Cataract
Procedure
Dr. Mullis, a board certified
ophthalmologist practicing in
8Panama City, is -.bringing -the-
latest advancement in eye sur-
gery to his patients. Since in-
troducing the procedure to the
Panama City area Dr. Mullis
has performed over a thou-
sand no-stitch procedures. Dr.
Mullis performs the procedure
with a tiny opening much
smaller than the incision used
in traditional methods. The
opening is so small, in fact,
that it heals effectively with no
stitches. Dr. Mullis indicates
that with the self sealing cata-
ract procedure, he can offer
significant benefits to his cata-
ract patients over traditional
methods.

Resume Normal
Activities Sooner
"The no-stitch procedure is
revolutionary in that patients
can resume normal activities
almost immediately after the
procedure," says Dr. Mullis.
This means that many patients
can golf, walk, fish and per-
form normal recreational activi-
ties the day after Dr. Mullis
performs the surgical proce-
dure.

Better Vision
Sooner
The no-stitch procedure allows
Dr. Mullis to provide better vi-
sion much sooner for his cata-
ract patients. Indeed, many of
Dr. Mullis' patients require no
glasses or are given final
glasses in only two weeks fol-
lowing the no-stitch procedure.
Dr. Mullis indicates that many
patients having more tradi-
tional cataract surgery have to
wait for 6 to 8 weeks to re-
ceive their final glasses.

Improved Healing
Another benefit of no-stitch
cataract surgery is more pre-
dictable healing. Dr. Mullis in-
dicates that the smaller open-
ing required with the no-stitch
procedure offers his patients a
more predictable recovery and
healing experience. Many of
Dr. Mullis' patients are amazed
at how well they see the day
after Dr. Mullis performs the
no-stitch procedure.

Commitment to
Excellence

Dr. Mullis suggests that today
the progressive .cataract .sur-
geon- must continually train
himself to remain technically
competent. Dr. Mullis is com-
mitted to bringing the latest
technological advances in cat-
aract surgery to his patients.
His specialized expertise in no-
stitch cataract surgery is evi-
dence of this commitment.

Save Money

As further evidence of his
commitment to his cataract pa-
tients, Dr. Mullis performs cat-
aract surgery in a same-day, li-
censed, low cost surgery cen-
ter The Mullis Eye Institute.
Dr. Mullis indicates that the
Eye Institute is equipped with
the latest in modern equip-
ment. Furthermore, cataract
surgery performed at the Mul-
lis Eye Institute is much less
expensive than in a hospital
setting. Patients will save
many hard-earned dollars by
having their cataracts removed
by Dr. Lee Mullis at the Mullis;
Eye institute. To learn more
about the no-stitch cataract
procedure call Dr. Mullis' office
in Panama City at 763-6666.

Capitol News

Round-Up
By Jack Harper



BOOT CAMPS FOR JUVENILE OFFENDERS. For better or worse,
the idea for boot camps for juvenile lawbreakers has arrived. Leon and
Pinellas Counties are starting camps now on matching money the Legis-
lature gave them in the October special session and a powerful Senate
committee is recommending at least 15 more.
Smaller counties in Florida will have to wait for further funding and
perhaps it is just as well-the battle over boot camps is just beginning.
How tough are they going to be? Or are they going to be slave camps
just to get the bad kids off the streets and out of the public mind? Will
they really teach responsibility, pride, teamwork, and basic education as
touted? Can military-type discipline-although well-intended and fi-
nanced-teach the family values that most of the juveniles lost out on?
S Leon County Boot Camp Commander Lowell MacDonald said last
week something has to be done. Sending 15 and 16 year olds to prison
-isn't a realistic answer. "It's simply sending them to a college of crime,"
he said.
Last year, Florida put 4,000 youthful offenders in prison, and they
-.--are 4,000 good reasons why MacDonald is probably right.
The report from the Senate Select Committee on Juvenile Justice Re-
"-form outlined the steps the Legislature is likely to take in February. Not
orily calling for 15 pilot boot camps about the state, it recommended find-
ing and charging parents with neglect if their children commit a crime or
even skip school. The age to allow a child to drop out of school would be
raised from 16 to' 18, and expelled teenagers would be sent to alternative
school. .
The committee turned down the idea of curfews and the old philoso-
phy of lock-'em-up in prison and throw away the key.
APPOINTED EDUCATION COMMISSIONER Douglas "Tim" Jamer-
son, who wants tb and probably has a chance to become the first black
to be elected to a statewide office in Florida, has one character trait the
average voter likes. He is his own man. /
Jamerson, sworn into the office last week after a delayed, somewhat
reluctantappointment by Gov. Lawton Chiles, has always shown a stub-
born single-mindedness against odds and advice, say friends and col-
leagues in the Florida Legislature.
Lt. Gov. Buddy' MacKay and Chiles-who has a reputation for stub-
boroness himself-can vouch to Jamerson's singleness of purpose. It was
no secret that Chiles intended to appoint MacKay to the interim educa-
tion post on the Florida Cabinet and that MacKay wanted it, but Jamer-
son cut that plan off at the pass by launching his own campaign long be-
fore outgoing Education Commissioner Betty Castor won her
appointment as president of the University of South Florida at Tampa.
He circulated Jamerson buttons in October, lined up support from
liberal and conservative house members, and announced he was going to
run for the education post on the cabinet next November whether Chiles
gave him the interim appointment or not.
It was typical Jamerson, said House Speaker-Designate Peter Wal-
lace, D-St. Petersburg, who was at Jamerson's swearing-in ceremony as
a strong supporter and friend.
Wallace said Pinellas County's democratic leaders delegated him to
talk Jamerson out of running'for the Legislature in 1982, because they
felt Morris Milton,.another black, could serve better in the minority dis-
trict seat in St. Petersburg. Jamerson ran anyway and won.
Jajie'rson, 46, a former classroom teacher and guidance counselor,
has chaired the House Education Committee and committees on correc-
tions and housing. He believes strongly, he said, in decentralizing control
. of the schools and giving more power to teachers and parents.
O.T .f o has said he Is not really interested in being the first black to,
*n statew-vid race in -lorida"this century just to make a raial'.'polnt.
Lit wants the opportunity to do something for the children of Florida.
Supreme Court Justice Leander Shaw, by surviving merit-retention
votes since he was appointed to the state high court, comes closest to be-
ing the first black to win a statewide election in Florida. Jessie McCrary,
Jr., of Miami. was appointed secretary of state by Gov. Reubin Askew in
1978. but he did not seek election to the post the following November.

REPORT CARDS ON FLORIDA SCHOOLS this year have been al-
tered to leave out comparison data that would have helped parents to see
i' f their children's public schools are getting better or worse.
Due to be released around Jan. 16 by the Department of Education,
the Florida School Report will contain statistics on test scores, atten-
dance rates, and financial data from schools statewide but no compari-
son to last year.
"Since many calculations in this report differ from the 1991-92 re-
port, comparisons are not recommended," the report says on its last
page.
Yet then Education Commissioner Betty Castor said in a cover letter
for the report a year ago that "the most important information for parents
'. will be the data produced in future years that allows you to understand
how your child's school is improving on a year to year basis."
A HALF CENT SALES TAX INCREASE is all that is needed to pay
for all the prisons and extra police needed to make, Florida's streets and
neighborhoods safe, says the Task Force for Review of the Criminal Jus-
tice and Corrections Systems.
Made up of Judges, attorneys, and-government officials, the Task
Force will recommend the half cent hike be put before voters on the No-
vember ballot. It could raise some $1 billion a year more to put into the
criminal justice system.
Insurance Commissioner Tom Gallagher has suggested a one cent
sales tax increase for the same purposes be put on the November ballot if
supporters can collect 430,000 petition signatures. Sen. Ron Silver D-
North Miami Beach, said herwill introduce a bill for lawmakers to enact a
one-cent increase without allowing a statewide vote on it.
Gov. Lawton Chiles proposed the sale of bonds to raise money for
prisons but didn't rule out the possibility of a tax increase.
GAY RIGHTS ADVOCATES asked the Florida Supreme Court last
week to not even allow an amendment that would exclude homosexuals
from state civil rights laws to go, on the November ballot because it was
too hostile to fundamental rights. ,
Suzanne Gilberg; an American Civil Liberties Union attorney, made
the request, saying it may be rare for the court to address the initiative
Issue prior to an election. "Rare? It ain't never been done," said Justice
Parker Lee McDonald.
The American Family Association of Florida is conducting the peti-
tion drive and has already sent 52,000 signatures to the Division of Elec-
"tions.


Trees and Shrubs


Should be Planted


In Fall and Winter


Trees and shrubs should be
planted in the fall and winter
months, instead of waiting until
spring. The plants are dormant
during this period and are ideal
for plant establishment as well as
good working weather for the gar-
deners., Planting in the fall and
winter allows the plants time to
become, established prior to
spring growth and bloom, and
prior to summer heat. Research
shows that- the roots of a plant
continue to grow and develop
during 'the winter, even though
the above ground part of the
plant remains dormant. You will
also find that your nurseryman
has a good stock of plants during
the fall and winter, and too, he
can give you more time and atten-
tion during this season, where as
.he can't during the spring rush.
Before going out to buy:
plants, study your site and have
some idea what kind of plants
would best fit your landscape
needs. For example, if you need
to shade your patio or a window
in the west side of your home,
look for a fast growing tree with a
broad spreading canopy. Ask the,
salesperson about the growth re-
quirements of the plants you plan
to buy. Do the plants require spe-
cial soil? ( i.e., azaleas require
acid soil.) Do the plants have ser-
ous insect and disease problems
which will require routine spray-
ing? Be sure the plants you select
'are tolerant of your local weather*
conditions. Just because a. plant
can be purchased at your local
plant shop doesn't guarantee that
it will tolerate the summer heat
or the winter cold in our area. .v
Inspect plants closely and
don't purchase those with an' un-
healthy appearance or weak,
poorly-formed,, scarred, or
cracked trunks or branches.
Don't purchase trees with double
leaders or with main branches,
clustered together on the trunk.'
Leaves of abnormal size or with
excessive: yellowing are an jindica-
tion of a plant health problem.
Also, examine plants for Insects,
diseases, 'and mechanical dam-
age.
After you have inspected the
aabove ground portion-for a plant-
examine its root system, The root
system of a container-grown
plant should be well established
so that the root ball'stays intact
when the container is removed:
however, the plant should not be
root-bound. Root-bound plants'
have a mass of roots circling near
the outside. surface of the con-
tainer medium and may present
difficulty in establishing the land-
scape. Although cutting or break-
ing up the root ball during plant-
ing has been recommended in the
past, there is no strong scientific
evidence to support the benefit of .
this practice.. The best recom-
mendation is not to invest your
money and effort in a root-bound
plant.
Equally as important as se-
lecting good plants is proper
^planting procedure. The planting
procedure, is the same for vines,
shrubs, and trees. Dig the plant-
ing hole one foot wider and as
deep as the root ball is tall. In
some cases where the soil is hard
or compacted, it may be advisable
to dig a planting hole three times
wider than the container and half
, as deep. Then mound the soil to
cover the sides of the root ball. A
plant installed in this manner
might require more frequent irri-
gation during dry periods, but is
not likely to suffer from subsur-
face drainage problems.
Carefully remove the plant
from the container. Gently place
the plant straight in the hole and
be sure the top of the root ball is
not deeper than the existing land-
scape soil surface. Fill around the
ball with soil and gently firm the
soil. The common practice of add-
ing organic matter such as peat
to the soil that is placed around
the root ball is not recommended.

There is a significant amount of
research that provides no evi-
dence that this practice is benefi-
cial.
The. success or failure of a
planting often depends on wheth-
er the plants receive adequate
moisture. The construction of a
saucer-like" basin around the
plant from the extra backfill soil
will aid watering by holding the
water until it drains down to the
plant's roots.

SHigh School
By Larry A. Mathes:

Second Semester
Welcome Back! By press time we'll be well into the second se-
mester. Most students seemed glad to get back to school, although
their motives might be mixed.
Several new students registered for the new semester, as Is
usually the case. It was about an even split between junior high
and senior high. Of course, we lost a couple, too, so we were glad to
get some new ones to keep our numbers up.
One change we were not glad about was Sharon Gaskin leaving
our faculty to accept a new position as the administrator of a five-
county Head Start program. It is quite a challenge for her and she
is excited about her career change, so we wish her well. She leaves
a successful Graduation Options program which she shaped into a
program that has shown excellent results under her guidance. Her
replacement has not been named at this time.
Things to come-Science Fair is just around the comer, Janu-
ary 27-28. Help your student get ready, and then plan to attend the
night of the 27th.
Report cards will be given out January 18 (to officially end the
1st semester). Parents need to be on the lookout for this important
document.
Basketball teams are working hard towards improvement. Both
girls and boys need your support. so try to get out and see them
play. It's easier when you know people care enough to support you.
Baseball and softball are gearing up. PracUce begins around
January 24. weather permitting. Softball is still in limbo, waiting to
see if I-A schools will be allowed to continue slow pitch rather than
change to fast pitch. Few., if any, i-A schools %will be able to field
fast pitch teams. A decision about this is due shortly from the state
offce.
Students are out Monday for Dr. Martin Luther King's birthday.
