out some of the things which have been done
by committees and other things which are be-
ing attempted.
Fritz defined 'downtown' as the 'living room
of the community' and thus is worth preserving
and improving for the sense of community it of-
fers its people. "But," he stressed, 'You have to
protect it before a WalMart comes along to ,de-
stroy it," he said.

and Worth Preserving

"Dressing up the downtown is desirable and
necessary to protect an active business atmos-
phere, but it's only a part of the things which
must be done to make the downtown a vibrant
place for people to come," Fritz said.
Some of the points Fritz stressed as neces-
sary are:
-Training for downtown merchants and
their sales people like the' larger corporations
train their managers and employees.
-Conduct a market analysis of your down-
town to see what 'niche' of your buying, public
is not being met and determine what the city
needs to satisfy that need.
-Focusing on quality, service, attention to
customers and marketing of your product.
Fritz cautioned about copying the general
theme of some other community.
The consultant suggested that organization
is the most important part of improving the'
downtown for both the people and the profit of
the merchant. "Organization brings it all to-
gether" he said, and offered congratulations to
the organizations in the city which are attempt-
ing to make Port St. Joe a vibrant center for
this portion of Florida.
'This basically, is what you would get out of
'Mainstreet,"' Fritz said. "It is a program for
those who wish to improve and have organized
to do so. Mainstreet only offers some of the
consulting expertise which the larger merchan-
dising giants have at their fingertips. The actu-
al doing is up to you."

Argus Makes Overture To City

For Its Solid Waste Business

CommigtonWmt-Wats BeSt Solution f Expensive
Problem But Leery of Contracting Garbage Service

The City Commission took
advantage of a light agenda Tues-
day night to talk about their posi-
tion as a result of a suggestion by
Argus Services that the city c6n-
sider contracting with them to op-
erate solid waste collection and
disposal services' on a long term
The city has had previous
overtures from Argus but has re-
buffed them in the past as being
too costly for the services per-
formed. The city offered more dis-
posal and handled more 'different
kinds of waste for about the same
fees as Argus.
The offer came at a workshop
between Argus- and the Gulf
County Commission last Thurs-
day evening, held for the purpose

of hammering but another con-,
tract to handle the county's solid
waste needs. The result of the
workshop was that it spent more
time trying to come up with rea-
sons Port St. Joe should join the
county and the city of Wewa-
hitchka as customers of Argus.
Argus serves counties sur-
rounding Gulf with solid waste
contracts. Argus has considera-
ble tiUmrepurchased at the Bay
County Incinerator, to bum
waste they .collect; Port St. Joe
also has time, purchased _at the
incinerator to handle its waste.
Although no guaranteed fig-
ures were discussed at the meet-
ing, which was attended by Com-

missioners Bill Wood and Charles
Tharpe, the two Board members
said tentative figures were given
them as to "about" how much
rates would be. The city of Port
St. Joe has recently had a rate in-
crease, but the two Commission-
'ers said Argus' rate was still high-
er than .the Port St. Joe rate,
considering service offered.
Commissioner Wood said,
"Their rate,. giving two pick-ups a
week, -furnishing a container and
picking up only leaves and straw
in their trash pick-up amounts to
$15.90, while ours for more trash
pick-up offered, is only $14.00."
Commissioner Charles
Tharpe added, 'Yes, and they
only pay their workers a mini-
mum wage. We pay more and give

Mayor Frank Pate observed,
"We're committed with our

changing unless we got a better
deal than we now have."
The city has been in contact
with the County Commission
pushing for a mandatory pick-up
requirement, to prevent an influx
of garbage in public and business
containers in the city. "If a person
is paying for solid waste disposal,
he won't haul it to the woods, or
into the city, to dump it. He'd al-
ready be paying for someone else
to handle it for him," Pate said.

chael Hammond, also present at
Tuesday night's meeting, said, "I

Tha-re interjected, "It isn't
'Argus' anymore. Guy Webb, the
owner, has sold out to a Connec-
ticut firm. Webb was at the meet-
ing Thursday evening, but he is
no longer the owner of the firm."
Hammond urged the Com-
mission to join them in a negotia-
tion with Argus for a contract to
serve the entire county. Mayor
Pate said, "Argus hasn't asked us
to meet with them or given any
official suggestion of what they
might offer us in a contract. I
don't know if that would be ap-
propriate or not."
The Commission agreed to
keep their options open but didn't
seem too warm to the Argus' sec-
ond hand offer of a contract.

It'll Work!

MARTIN LUTHER KING'S birthday of 1994 may just go
down in history as being a more Important turning point for our
nation than did the actual day of assassination of the civil rights
leader. The remembrance of the passage in Congress of equal
rights laws may be of insignificant importance, compared with
the significance of recognizing the activities of black youth today
can have on our life style for both blacks and whites.
Jesse Jackson is recognizing it; King birthday celebrants rec-
ognize it; Pastor Wendell Anthony of Fellowship Cathedral in De-
troit recognize it. Young blacks are making their own hell on
earth through their criminal activities even to the point
where blacks and whites are both afraid to walk the streets of
America alone at night.
WE THINK IT WAS important to remember that Jesse Jack-
son, speaking at a conference of Black ministers on getting back
-to the values preached by King, said: 'There is nothing more
painful to me at this stage of my life than to walk down the
street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery. Then
[I] look around and see someone who is white and feel relieved."
Who else could have made that statement and had it taken
seriously and without thought of bias?
White America has been making that statement for years and
-has been met with a charge of "Racism" from the black commu-
nity. Now, leaders from the black community recognize this is
the root of our problem. Whites don't hold blacks at a distance
because they wish to keep them down. They hold them at a dis-
tance because of a sense of self protection.
JACKSON ALSO MADE A reasonable and workable sugges-
tion as a solution to the problem. He suggested that 100 black
church congregations from 100 cities In the nation, adopt 10
teen-age boys and transform them to useful citizens through
love, respect and a sense of responsibility. It will surely work!
Given the statistic that blacks, who make up 12% of the our
Population in the United States and provide us with half our
homicide victims, whose killers are almost all black; those
churches which participate in such a program will earn the un-
dying gratitude of the entire nation.

Steady Growth

TWO REPORTS IN LAST week's issue of The Star give us fair
warning that we are building in and around Port St. Joe slowly
and steadily. But one report.gives us reason to believe that we
may begin building faster, especially In the area along Highway
C-30, south of the city.
The two reports are those of the county's Building Depart-
ment on last year's activity and the other is the announcement
that Lighthouse is making a central water system of treated, safe
drinking water available in that vicinity. Already, a ride along C-
30 will show pockets of growth in the Simmons Bayou area and
scattered development along the road all the way to St. Joseph
Peninsula. -
Water being made available to homes along the route will
dramatically change that situation over the next few years. No-
longer can we use the,adjective "sparse",.in describing growth in
the area. but in the few years to come we predict words -like
boomingng" will more aptly describe the development situation.
BUILDING HAD ALREADY been more active than we have
ever witnessed in 50 years of living in the area. That activity has
been a steady reality even though It almost takes an act of con-
gress to get a permit to build in the vicinity of the coast, needing
permits for both sewer disposal and drinking water source ap-
The availability of a central water supply is a major step to-
ward the elimination of the need for some of the more vexing
Lighthouse Utilities will probably be a long time recovering
their investment along C-30, but their investment is definitely a
sound one for the long haul.
ANOTHER SOLID INDICATION of growth in Gulf County is
the report by Building Department director Don Butler. His re-
port shows solid growth with approximately 70 new homes being
built in the Port St. Joe area. For a community the size of Port
St. Joe, this Is phenomenal growth for one year. A goodly portion
of that building activity has taken place outside the City Limits,
but 16 have been in the two square miles of the City Limits.
Those are the statistics for permanent structures. Add to
that the permits written for 111 mobile homes moving into the
county during 1993, and you have pretty solid growth. Not the
taxing burden of a boom area, but good, solid, steady growth.
We'll take that kind!

'Perfect" In My Eyes

"Harvey Haddix died last week
in Springfield, Ohio. He was 68.
The sports pages, ESPN, The
Sporting News, Sports Illustrat-
ed-all the media in reporting his
passing gave his name and then
went immediately to. May 26,

1959. in Milwaukee-that's the
night Haddix pitched 12 perfect
innings against the National
League defending champions. He
retired the first 36 batters he
faced in a lineup that included
Joe Adcock, Del Crandall, Eddie
Mathews, and Hank Aaron! They
dutifully 'reported that Haddix
lost this masterpiece in the 13th
inning and a couple, I think
ESPN and The Sporting News,
even mentioned that Haddix was
pitching with the flu; he had a fe-
ver and a sore throat-but the
"story" told, the sporting world

moved quickly to the upcoming
play off between the Cowboys and
the Packers ....
They didn't know Harvey
Haddix like I did.
Now, don't misunderstand, I
never met 'Mr. Haddix. He
wouldn't 'a known me from
Adam's house cat-but he had an
impact on my life that went way
beyond an almost perfect night in
1959. It's amazing in a lifetime,
the number of different people
that touch you in some way ....
In 1953, I'm pedaling as hard
as I can but I can't speed life up.

I'm too young for little league, I
don't start school until the fall.
my older brother gets the good
jobs, all I do is clean up after
him-I'm just too little, trapped
on a no-where farm, in a no-
where town, In a no-where uni-
verse of grown-ups who pass me
by. .
I have one escape. The good
Lord in Heaven, I know, sent that
old stand up Zenith just for
me... supper eaten, we'd gather
around that radio and tune in the
closest baseball game, which for
us was the St. Louis Cardinals.
The play by play announcer was
a very young Harry Caray. And he
took me places that summer that
I could only dream about ... As
Carl Furillo of the dreaded Dodg-
ers stepped 'to the plate, Harry
would tell us. about Reading, PA.
If it was Pee Wee Reese, he grew
up in Louisville and Harry would
tell us about a "restaurant down
on the-river." Jackie Robinson,
"with the big 42 on his back,"
would dig in and I learned of a
college out in California called
'Course, as you all know, the
Cards had serious problems back*
in those days-they could score
with anyone, Musial and Slaugh-
ter. usually knocking in Hemus
and Schoendienst with Jablonski
and Repulski throwing in big hits
here and there-the trouble was,
they couldn't keep anyone else
from scoring! The Cardinals had
no pitching. I mean Baby Joe Pre-
sko, Cliff Chambers, Dick Bokel-
mann and Eddie Yuhas didn't ex-
actly strike fear into the hearts of
the rest of the National League.
Enter Harvey Haddix.
Harry told us right off that,
"Harvey is a little guy," I liked him
already, "who grew up on a farm
in Medway, Ohio."
A little farmer from a no-
where place! This was too good to
be true But wait, it gets better-
he wins. baseball games! By Au-
gust the heat had moved us out
on the porch. We'd open the door
and windows and turn that Ze-
nith up as loud as it would go.
"Haddix wins again, I tell you, the
little left-hander is all heart-. "
Harry was celebrating with us.
We didn't- qtch the Bums
that summer, but it wasn't the lit-
tle guy's fault. He won twenty
games, pitched six shut outs, and
was named the National League's
Rookie. of the Year.
But most important of all he
put a little kick in my going no-

all time pitcher. And in the off
season, he had to clean out the
barn and slop the hogs ... just

We weregoing to murder 'em

friends that the Cardinals may
not lose 'a game this year. .
But right before the season
started the Cards traded Enos

couldn't believe it! Enos gone. My.
mother cried. Dad, said, "If they

By Wesley Ramsey

started last Thursday. I was sit-
ting here at.this computer, trying
to think up a column and I was
dibbling with this and dabbling
with that. I was even relegated to
.reading the label on a mucilage
bottle. Desperately Then the coin-
cidence hit.
I picked up a piece of paper
buried near the bottom of the pile
of things I wanted to get around
to looking at some time. It was a
copy of a journal the late Purvis
Howell kept during World War II.
It was a written blow by blow de-
scription of a convoy run he was

on from northern England,
around Norway, to Murmansk,
Russia while serving in the Navy.
Billy Howell brought the copy
by and I had filed it, and in the
passing of several weeks
[months], forgotten it.
I read the article, about the
perilous journey, which took four
days and described the constant
attack the convoy suffered, sail-
ing along, just north of the Ger-
man homeland. The article told of
such hardships as, not being able
to sleep for four days and nights;
of having to be on the alert for an
attacking plane or submarine; of

having a ship hit near you, load-
ed with gasoline and going up like
a sky rocket! One ship sank in 59
seconds after being hit.
Then the very next Thursday,
at Rotary Club, we had Dr. Jim
Cersosimo talk about the down-
sizing of the military, the armed
forces' lack. of susceptibility to
change, the jealousy between ser-
vice groups. 'There's always bad
guys out there in the world. ,It
takes so long to get war hardware
back into production and train
people to use it, it almost seems
counterproductive to downsize
the trained military and mothball
a portion of the hardware," Cerso-
simo said.
But, civilian progress is com-
peting for the dollar with the mili-
tary and, when it seems we can
do without the. larger military
presence, we give way to other
spending projects.
Coincidence number one!
Howell recording an effort to pre-

serve freedom by delivering fight-
ing material and Cersosimo doing
the same and persuading us not
to forget the possible need.
TWO came along Sunday when
out of the blue, I .was passing a
few waiting moments,. talking
with the music director at our
church, when he said, "Was Beth
Ramsey related to you?" Upon as-
certaining that he was talking
about the Beth Ramsey who lived
in Atlanta, I replied, 'Yes, she
was. She was my brother's
daughter, but she died a few
years ago."
"I know," he said. "I was in
the same class with her in Cobb
County High School. My mother
still lives just a short distance
from Beth's parents."
That's another coincidence;
Buford Cox, our music director,
who came by way of Graceville, to
us,. living in my brother's, neigh-

ber three. A friend of ours came
in the office the other week and
said, "I've let my wife talk me into.
going to a' place nobody ever
heard of to go skiing right after
Christmas. I have. never been on
a trip like that before and on top
of that, my wife has invited my
mother to go. I can't figure where
she thinks we will get the money
to go!" -
" He raved on and on about
having to go to a place known as
"Steamboat, Colorado." Trista
Jackson, -who just started work-
ing here at The Star about six
months ago, said, "I know where
that is! I was there one time while
daddy was in the military!"
Third coincidence. Trista
knew right where the friend was
bound for and wangled him out of
bringing her a T-shirt! [With this
particular friend, that was a mir-
acle to go along with the coinci-

Local Jr. Store Hit By Robbers

Apprehended in High Speed Chase by Bay and Gulf County Police

My Bottle Of Old Spice
It had been a long time since I had a bottle of Old Spice after
shave lotion, but Santa brought me one this past Christmas. It was
. one of the first things on mfy Christmas list.
Although I'm not up-to-date on the latest in men's fashions and
accessories (shaving lotion, jewelry, and dress), I gather from my
two sons that Old Spice is not one of the favorite shaving lotions of
the young man of today. So be it.
There are several reasons I requested Old Spice for Christmas.
One was I'm too lazy to go shopping for it-it's hard to find-in plac-
es that might carry a large variety of men's accessories. Another
reason was my Christmas list was very short and I thought it might
make an easy-to-get, inexpensive gift for me from one of my chil-
dren. Santa read my list and brought it to me.
The main reason I wanted Old Spice is I like the way it smells
and it reminds me of my first couple of years of college, especially
the first year.
When I packed my metal foot-locker to leave for Hinds Junior
College in the fall of 1957, my toilet articles included a razor, a
pack of blades, a can of shaving cream, a bottle of roll-on deodor-
ant, a hair brush (I had a crew-cut, not long hair), a toothbrush
and a tube of Colgate toothpaste and a large, economy-size bottle of
Old Spice. Old Spice was a prestigious shaving lotion in those days.
Old Spice has a fresh and not-too-bold smell. It also lasts a
long time. Sometimes, late in the afternoon when I wash my face to
remove some of the daily grime, the smell is still there and seeming-
ly as strong and fresh as ever. And the smell is clean and pure, like
the commercial says. It doesn't reach out and grab the people
around me when I walk into a room like some of the fancy, popular
lotions today do. Some of the shaving lotions of today let you smell
a man before you see him. I know this is true because I have a few
of them.
Another thing I enjoy about Old Spice today is, the smell takes
me back to a more simple, enjoyable way of life. In 1957, things
were a lot more cut-and-dried than they are today. We teenagers
knew where we stood and we know what the results would be if we
stepped out of line. Knowing that made life a lot less complicated
and much more enjoyable. The staunch rules didn't stop some of us
from breaking them, but when we were caught we expected the
punishment and, more often than not, they gave .it to us. ,
Old Spice also reminds me of my first venture into the romantic
field. I was a shy and introverted country lad, and when I first start-
ed dating, I would shower, shave, and put on enough Old Spice to
float a small fishing boat. I would splash., it on my face, neck, arms,
legs, and leet.
Talcum powder would adorn the rest of my body. but the Old
Spice aroma would be the predominant odor. I once thought about
.gargling with it when I had a "special" date. but one taste on the tip
of my tongue ended that idea.
This is not a commercial for Old Spice, mind you: I don't even
know who makes it. 'It is, however, a wonderfully simple, great-
smelling after shave lotion to me. I :have some on as I type this arti-
cle and my wife came by about an hour ago and stopped and said,
'My goodness! What is that you have on? It smells so good I can
hardly stand it!" And then she gave me a big hug and kuss and
asked me to stay home from work.
So, that's what I did. Only trouble is, I. stayed home and she
went to work. .
Well. Old Spice is good. but it can't overcome ugly!
I think I'll try some of that new stuff tomorrow morning.

The second Port St. Joe area
Jr. Food Store in less than two
weeks became a robbery victim
last Thursday morning, when the
Highland View store was robbed
at approximately 5:45 a.m. by
two men.
According to Sheriff Al Harri-
son, the clerk at the store, Wil-
liam Terrell Tharp, was working
in the store near the dairy case,
arranging merchandise, when two
men entered the store. Tharp said
he never saw one of the men, as
one approached him engaging
him in conversation. Suddenly,
the second man struck Tharp
from behind. The two then de-
manded that he open the store's
safe for them.
Tharp told the two men he
didn't know the combination to
the safe, and apparently they be-
lieved him. The men then moved
to the cash register and rifled it
for approximately $60 and fled
the store on foot. They ran to
their vehicle which was parked
approximately a block from the
store, jumped in it and took off,
headed west.
Tharp called the Sheriffs De-
partment, alerting them of the
robbery and the direction of trav-
el. Deputy Stacy Strickland was
patrolling about a half mile west
of the store on Highway 98, and
saw a vehicle, a '79 brown -Olds-
mobile station wagon, go by. It
was the only vehicle on the road,
so Strickland turned his car
around and gave chase.
The suspects led officers from
Port St. Joe, Mexico Beach and
Deputy Strickland at speeds ex-
-eeding 100 miles per hour
through Mexico Beach, Tyndall
Air Force Base, and evaded a
road block at duPont Bridge. By
this time Gulf County officers
were Joined by Tyndall andBay
County units and .the combina-
tion forced the fleeing station
wagon into the parking lot of
West Super Store on 15th Street
In Panama City.
The car ended up in a shal-
low drain ditch and the two men,
jumped out and ran. They were
apprehended quickly and arrest-
ed. The missing money and two
baseball bats were recovered from
the vehicle.
Placed under arrest were My-
ron Jerald Calhoun. 22 of Red-
dick, and Christopher Gudger, 29
of Avenue B. Port St. Joe. The two
were charged with strong arm
robbery, aggravated battery, re-
sisting arrest with violence, at-
tempting to elude officers.
The pair were brought to the,
Gulf County Jail, where they are
still in custody. Both men were
found to be on probation for simi-
lar charges in the Reddick area.

Foot Cysts
A cyst is an abnormal
fluid-filled sac embedded in
tissue. Cysts sometimes de-
velop .in the feet. One type.;
called :epidermal inclusion
cysts, typically occurs on the
ball of the foot at sites sub-
ject to a lot of pressure and
irritability. Sometimes these
cysts develop at sites of previ-
ous injuries. They have firm
walls and vary-in size.,
,Most often these kind of
cysts develop in men and
women who are young or
middle-aged, but they also
can occur among older peo-
ple. Because an inclusion
cyst grows slowly, it maynot
become evident until it caus-
es increasing discomfort
when walking. In some cases
these cysts announce them-
selves by generating an in-
flammatory reaction. Diagno-
sis of an inclusion cyst
usually is followed by its sur-
gical removal, which is done
under local anesthesia.

Hysmith. She is eight years old

Nicky likes to skate, do home-

High School
By Larry A. Mathes

Parents, did you receive a report card this week? If not, you
need to find out. why. They went out Tuesday to students, and if
you didn't see one. maybe they didn't want you to! Seems like
they'd want to brag about all those A s". though.
I don't' see any more holidays for students until the Feb. 21 &
22 Inservice days, so it looks like everyone will have to buckle down
and get busy with classroom work. The annual Science Fair at WHS
is the next big project, Jan. 27 & 28. The night of the 27th is open
to the public and everyone is invited to view the exhibits that will be
on display in the high school gymnasium. This has been a very suc-
cessful affair for the last several years, and this year promises to be
,as good or better. Put the 27th of Jan. on your calendar. i.,
The annual report of the schools' CTBS scores have been re-
ceived. Give us some time to analyze the results (which, by the way.
are last year's scores) and then we will be reporting to you via the
news media. Early comments look very favorable.
Baseball practice begins Jan. 24th-not sure about softball,
.with the debate still raging about the slo-pitch/fast pitch controver-
sy. This should be resolved shortly and scheduling of games will
then be nailed down. Presently it appears smaller schools will be al-
lowed to have slo-pitch, complete with a play-off (at least for this
year). .
Basketball for boys and girls still offers plenty of chances to get
out and support the school and the programs. Find out when they
, play and make plans to see a game!

Miss Henderson gave an in-

Martin Luther in 1517. Many of

Exchanges like that don't
mean communication isn't possi-
ble; they just mean you have to
try harder and be more creative.:
The next time you want to
know about your child's school
day, try asking a more specific
question like:
-What did you do in your fa-
vorite subject?
-What library book are you
-What was the best part of
your day?
* -Do you. have any papers I.
need to see or sign?
Set aside a daily time to
talk-and be sure to listen.

When landscape plants
freeze, the first impulse of most
gardeners is to get out the prun-
ing. shears and cut away dead
and drying leaves and branches.
But, this really isn't a good idea.
As a .rule, you can't tell how
much damage has been done, un-
til plants start new growilih in Lhe
spring. So, if you prune immedi-
ately after a. freeze, you may cut
away live wood that doesn't have.

pla-nt against further cold injury.
But. If you re absolutely deter-
mined to, prune, be prepared to
provide covers, and any other
needed protection, to guard
what's left of your plants against
the next cold snap.
Severe cold may kill some of
yoljir tender landscape and patio
ornamentals all the way down to
the soil line. But, such specimens
-- things like rubber plants, phil-
odendrons, and poinsettias -
could surprise you by sending up
a new 'shPots in the spring. So,
don't give up on them too soon.
Allow enough time for them to re-
vive, after warm weather returns.

Both flowers buds and stems
of azaleas often suffer cold dam-
age. But injury will be evident if
your plants produce few, or no
flowers at blooming time. Stem
damage will show up later in the
spring and early summer, when
some branches die. That will be
the time to prune. Just cut out
dead branches, as you find them,
always pruning back to live wood.
Low temperatures, often'

either drop from the plants. or
open only partway,/ revealing a
brown center. Leaf damage on ca-
mellias usually isn't too much of
problem. In most cases, as new
leaves come out in the spring, the
old, frost-burned leaves will just
drop off the plants.
Whatever you do, even if your
landscape ornamentals have al-
ready suffered some cold injury,
do not relax your guard. More
frigid weather may be on the way.
So, be prepared to keep your
prized plants as warm as possi-
ble, each time the weatherman
predicts freezing temperatures.
And, try'not to encourage .any
new growth, until all frost danger
has past.

Capitol News

By Jack Harper

"In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; and in all things,
charity." Those words of a Methodist revivalist John Wesley seem appro-
priate this week to this old reporter trying to write a column making
sense of events in Florida's capital city.
.'My preacher gave me the quote when members of the Sunday school
class asked for an answer on a new book written by some biblical schol-
ars pointing out statements their research indicated Jesus didn't make.
They didn't question basic Christian beliefs that Jesus was God's son
and rose from the dead or that you are to love your enemies, even turn
the other cheek. They did conclude Jesus probably never said, "no one
gets to the Father unless it is through me," and never predicted the end
of the world.
Wesley's quote should help in the face of tough column choices this
How about this idea? We're all in this thing called Democracy and
the American Dream together. Right? Then why doesn't Florida, like sev-
eral states including Virginia, have a common holiday for Dr. Martin Lu-
ther King, Jr., and Confederate General Robert E. Lee?
Lee was born January 19, King on January 17.
We should put the civil war behind us. The southern white and the
Southern black need each other. We're all in this together (that's the es-
sential requiring unity). So why shouldn't Gov. Lawton' Chiles declare an
official holiday (liberty and charity) for both of the very much loved his-
torical characters?
Naw. No editor would print such a column.
But it's my custom to always write a little about Robert E. Lee wher-
ever I am around January 19-no matter what. Usually, it's on the King
holiday when all the news sources are closed. No writer has yet been able
to successfully trash Lee's life as a soldier, husband, and churchman, or
his devotion to duty, responsibility, and honor. He deliberately walked
out of step In surrender ceremonies when that bitter war ended to show
both sides it was over.
You wouldn't know it was over now. A public television crew filmed a
TV' documentary-replete with a hanging-at the state Museum of Histo-
ry and natural Science last week on the 1923 now infamous destruction
of Rosewood, a black community near Cedar Key in Florida's Levy
County. There was, also a confrontation of Klansmen protesting King's
week of publicity on the steps of the capital.
Education Commissioner Tim Jamerson, the first black in modem
limes with a chance to win a statewide office, should be interesting in
unitNy in the essentials, liberty in non-essentials and charity in all things.
Of course. Florida voters should consider qualifications and leadership,
not race. in selection of any Cabinet member or any other official. No
But the truth is some (both black and white) will vote according to,
race, although that political fact has been less true in recent years,.par-.
ticularly in small towns where people know each other better and in larg-
er communities where voters have become upset with their incumbents.
Why is it that I feel Jamerson, who was appointed to the post by Gov.-
Chiles, is going to claim, if defeated, it was because of race and, if he
wins, it was because he was so well qualified? Experience, I guess.
What parents are really interested in, of course, is a good, accounta-
ble public education system for their children from a leader who is not a
handmaiden of the education lobby. Really.
Naw. that's not a good column idea, either.
How-about the one on the LCR (Liberty County Redneck) versus the
RCW (red cockaded woodpecker)? Both 'are endangered species, but it
looks like the woodpecker is winning the battle in Florida's Apalachicola
National Forest.
The U.S. Supreme Court last week upheld interim restrictions that
curtail logging in the national forests in set-aside RCW habitat, although
new rules under consideration could allow restraints in Liberty County.

The, 4palachicola has more RCW colonies than all the other forests,.
combCin .thys. environmentalist's want to limit timbering ,(Liberty,
C6&un!ty's bigger Industrv) there. The irony is that the woodpecker popu-
lations have continued to increase during heavy timber production man-
agement on the Apalachicola while dwindling in other Southern forests.
I could end' that column with a little humor, like: How does an Old
Gator get a Serrinole to say "Go, Gator"?
1. You have' tohappen to be the first one in the choir at Lake Jackson
Methodist Church in Tallahassee to lead the others down the aisle. You
stand there flat-footed until the Old Seminole that gives you the signal to
move out says. "Go. Gator."
Hey,. this column is written already, right here in the Tallahassee
