Gulf County law enforcement officials and the Florida High-

29-year-old Vicky L. Waters sometime Friday night or early Sat-
urday morning, Gulf County Sheriff Al Harrison told The Star
early Wednesday morning.
Ms. Waters was struck by an unknown motorist while she
was walking beside Highway 98 near the beginning of the St. Joe
Beach subdivision late Friday night or early Saturday morning.
The motorist left the scene without reporting the accident and is
being sought to answer to that charge as well as possible addi-
Harrison said possible witnesses and several leads on the ve-
hicle involved have been uncovered in the week of investigation.
"We've checked several vehicles out. but we don't have anything
definite to build a case on as vet." Harrison said.
Florida Highway Patrol investigators C. D. Chapman. Dalton
Upchurch and Doug Grice have worked virtually full time on the
incident ever since it happened.
Waters' body was discovered by a motorist at first light Sat-
urday. lying about 20 feet off the road, on the shoulder. She had
been struck about 200 yards east of the first side street at St.
Joe Beach, with the impact tossing her nearly 100 feet. One of
Water's shoes was found on the shoulder of the road about'20
feet from the point of impact and the other shoe another 25 feet
down the Highway.
SOME EVIDENCE FOUND
Sheriff Harrison said evidence was found along the path of
the mishap, which investigators hope will lead them to the death
Harrison said the investigation will continue until the case is
Waters is the first traffic death of 1994 in Gulf County. The

County Signs10-Year Collection Agreement with Argus
Rates for Services Will Climb Gradually Throughout Term of Working Agreement; Only Suburban Areas Affected
It didn't take but just a few
minutes for the County Commis-
sion to agree to a. new 10-year
contract with Argus Services to
furnish garbage collection service
in the unincorporated portion of
the county at their meeting Tues-
With only one change in the
present contract, the Board voted
unanimously to extend it for 10
years. The Board approved a rate.

to perform the service for a dec-

, will increase gradually from the
present charge of $9.10 to $13.72
by the year 2000., This rate is for
once a week pick-up with the
customer furnishing his own con-
The County wanted the new
contract to specify that either
party had six months to termi-
nate services, which Argus repre-
sentatives present at the meeting
readily agreed to.
The new contract will become
effective in 1995.
In other action, related to the
garbage collection contract, the
Board agreed to take steps neces-
sary to place the compactor sta-
tion on Industrial Road, near Port
St. Joe, up for -sale. The Board
agreed to have surveys of the
property and appraisals made.
The county has a major pol-
lution problem which they are
trying to handle themselves. The
Department of Environmental
Protection is standing aside, so
far, to see if the county handles
the matter properly, before step-
ping in, according to county engi-
neer, Ralph Rish. "So far, they
have let us take care of it, but I
can guarantee you that if we
don't, they will be right on top of
us telling what you have to do."
. Rish suggested the county
contract with Southern Earth Sci-
ences to monitor a site near the
Road Department headquarters
in Wewahitchka where fuel stor-
age tanks were recently removed.
Rish said the county has already
removed some 900 cubic yards of
soil and recommended they re-
move at least 600 yards more. "In
addition, you will need some
monitor wells to keep a check on
the area where the tanks were.
Southern Earth Sciences have
said it will take at least six wells
at a total cost of about $7,800 to
properly do the job. If you don't
take reasonable steps to deter-
mine the scope of the alleged con-
tamination, I guarantee you DEP
will come in and tell you what
you MUST do."
The commission agreed to
employ the firm to monitor the al-
leged offending site.
In otler matters of business,
-Changed their March 8
meeting to Monday, March 7.
-Agreed to approach their
operating union, representing
Road Department and Mosquito
Control employees and ask them
to extend their working agree-
ment another year, along with its
wage increase requirements.
-Agreed to accept $92,284
in grants to finance emergency
-Agreed to a contract with
Honeywell Corporation to furnish
instrumentation designed to save
electricity by regulating air condi-
tioning and heating use.

THERE IS NO DOUBT that Florida is potentially coming
upon another tax hike season, what with the Legislature in ses-
sion and such things as higher taxes almost a sure thing when
the Legislature is in session.
Recently, a tax. research group printed their findings of a
study of state and local taxes, by states, and came up with the
figures to show that Florida citizens were paying 9.9 cents of
every dollar they earn in state and local taxes. That makes Flori-
da 43rd in the nation-as tax burdens go. There are 42 states
which tax more than Florida and six which tax less on a com-
bined state and local level.
On the surface, that would put Florida in pretty good stand-
ing, nationwide. But the highest tax rate in the nation is paid by
citizens of Alaska, who pay 19.2 cents of every dollar for taxes.
That's about twice what Florida pays. Tennessee, however has
the lowest rate in the nation at 8.8 cents of every dollar earned,
for the lowest rate in the nation: just 1.1 cents below Florida.
What we're talking about here, is there is not a very large
span between the highest and lowest.
FLORIDA IS BELOW the average, also in the actual dollars
collected, per capital, as taxes. Highest is still Alaska at $3,937;
national average is $2,123, with Florida coming in at number
30. The combined tax load is $1,855 per person. Mississippi is
last on the tax roster, collecting $.1,304 per person.
The reason for the tables and considerable accompanying
data is to condition state tax payers to the fact that Florida's
state taxes were supposedly coming down las a percentage of
personal earnings] while local taxes are on the rise. In Florida,
citizens are number 41st in the nation in percentage of income
going to state taxes and number 23rd in nation in taxes being
paid to local taxing entities--coming down in state taxes and ris-
ing in local taxes.
ADMITTEDLY, TAXES ARE getting closer to home where we
can keep an eye on the ones taking and spending them, but just
you watch out, we think all these figures are to lull us to sleep
over the fact that our state isn't doing us too bad with its collec-
tion of taxes. Surely, all of you wouldn't mind if a few more were
tacked on, would you?
GULF COUNTY IS GETTING within seeing distance of being
financially ready to begin installing our 911 emergency tele-
phone/response service. Just last month, the service received a
$49,690 grant from the state to be used for installation costs of
the service. A 50t surcharge is being collected on your telephone
service to pay for the installation and operation of the emergency
The only thing which is keeping us from already having the
network in place and operating-other than the planning-is
having the money in hand to pay for it. State law requires that
each county must accumulate enough money to pay for the sys-
tem when it Is installed. Gulf is nearing that goal. Actually. Larry
Wells, who is in charge of 911 planning, tells us that at the
present rate, the money will be in the bank to purchase a sys-
tem by October of this year.
Check your calendar. That's only eight months away: "tomor-
row"'in government parlance. '
THINGS ARE PROGRESSING toward having the system in
operation, but there is still a considerable bit of work to do be-
fore 911 can become a reality. There's the herculean task of
identifying every piece of property in the county so that the loca-
tion of an emergency need can be identified with a number. In
the past the county's fire departments, rescue service, ambu-
lance and law enforcement units have all operated on a system
of identification which calls for services "about two and a half
miles from where the creek crosses Overstreet Road, at a yellow
house next to Joe Citizens' calf barn."
Obviously that information can't be stored in a computer,
nor relayed to a stranger. The stranger may not know where "Joe
Citizens' barn" is located.
THEN, THERE IS THE moving about and decision as to
where the equipment is to be located. 911 computers can't be
set on the dining room table nor tucked back in a closet some-
where. It must have ample room, ample electric service, air con-
ditioning for the computers and people, emergency power supply
to make it effective when the county would need it most. Most of
all it will require the adequate training of people to operate the
system and operate it properly. There can be no slip-shod man-
ning of this all-important communications system.
You see, there is still a lot to do and and less time to do it in

At least, I figured I did. It was

The Price ofNew Cars Enough To Knock Your Socks Off
HAVE YOU LOOKED at the
price of cars recently? I mean
, "looked" like you were hunting
one to buy, or looking at the price
of the one which caught your eye.
It'll truly startle you unless your
shock button has been removed.
I have looked and balked and
backed up and got a fresh start at
looking again. Every car in the
universe is priced too high. ex-
cept the car I happen to be driv-
ing: it isn't worth anything!
The prices on those down-
sized cars of today have set me
back a bit, caused a reassess-
rhent of my druthers and made
me want to keep my old one a,
year or two longer. The only thing
is, I had already kept it seven
years, driven it 90,000 miles and
filled the ash tray with stray pen-

MY OLD FORD STATION
wagon had become so well known
throughout the county. I never
had to take the key out of the ig-

'he would be recognized before he
had driven a block as the thief
who stole old Wes's old blue sta-
That wagon and I have been a
lot of places together. Everywhere
I went, the wagon went along. It
years, I first had the idea I want-
ed to replace Old Blue with an
Explorer. People told me they
were expensive. I couldn't justify
an expensive car for a second ve-
hicle, so I contacted my friend
Walter Robinson out at Highland
View Motors. I said, 'Walter, is
there such a thing as an Explorer
sold on this "program Plan" I hear
so much about'?"
He said, "I think so. but they
are few and far between. I'll see
what I can find."
So Walter looked high and
low, he twisted the arms' of new
dealers for deals and still couldn't
turn up a late model, very low
mileage vehicle with the name
'Explorer' on it. He found them
with almost new price tags on
them. Dealers were fond of their
Explorers. .' '
SO 'I BOUGHT A new Aero-

want to pay but felt I had to if I

of station wagons. In my estima-
tion, they were the handiest vehi-
cle a person could ever own. I like
them so much I can't understand
why at least every other vehicle
on the road isn't a station wagon.
My station wagon and I have
gone camping together, with me
sleeping in, the back at night. 'We

gage in the back where I had

way home. I have hauled newspa-

"Otis. I never would have thought

I would have dearly loved to
have found a new Ford for as lit-

making plans to replace my faith-

things I just missed hitting with

er saw them. Plenty of leg room is
also a plus, as is the climate con-
trol. The seats are Rke a comfort-
able couch, which is attractive to
people my age. The six-cylinder
engine doesn't overpower me.

People with diabetes are
especially vulnerable to cer-
tain types of serious foot
problems. Among these, in-
fections can be extremely
damaging. The reason is that
diabetes can prevent infec-
tion-fighting white blood cells
from doing their job. Thus, a
minor infection can quickly
worsen into a severe condi-
tion. In a study of diabetics
who had to hospitalized for
various problems, it was
found thaL one out of five
were admitted because of
very serious infections.
Any break in the skin in-
vites Infection. It is extremely
important for diabetics to do
everything possible to prevent
infection from getting a start.
Don't go barefoot Use luke-
warm water and mild soap to
,bathe the feet daily, and dry
'thoroughly. Trimming corns
or calluses at home with a
sharp blade risks cuts and
infection. Leave such treat-
ment to the podiatrist. Get
regularly scheduled foot
checkups. If your daily foot
inspection shows signs of
possible infection, see the po-

"First, let me point out that
Mainstreet is for small cities be-

tion so we were turned down,
twice, because we didn't meet the
population criteria. We made ap-

If your child's permanent teeth
are crowded because of an extra
tooth or a tooth growing where it
shouldn't, your dentist will know the
best time to extract it.
If it's a baby tooth, he may
want to extract the extra tooth right
away so the permanent teeth will
have the room they need when they
erupt. But if it's a case of crowding
of permanent teeth, he may want to
wait until the' child is older and all
the permanent teeth are in place.
It's a question of timing, of knowing
the ideal time to relieve the crowd-

Ball Moss Is Not

Ball moss is a plant that

trees. Many people believe that
ball moss kills oaks, or, at least
speeds their decline. Because of
Its abundance in oaks, it's easy to
see why ball moss is thought to

If you have ball moss infested
oaks around your home, this arti-
cle should help you take better

panies around the .state have told
homeowners that ball moss does
kill oaks. They've suggested that
spray treatments to kill the moss
will improve the conditions of de-

Ball moss is an epidphyte.
It's the same biological family as
Spanish moss. Each plant is a
tuft of leathery, thread-like leaves
that grow one to seven inches
long. The leaves are covered with
silver-gray or brownish scales.
Pale violet flowers grow on short
To prove ball moss isn't para-
sitic, two researchers from Ober-
lin College in Ohio-David Benz.-
ing and Jeffrey Seeman-used
ball moss infested oak cuttings
and a radioactive phosphorus
compound. They dipped the ends
of the living oak branches in the
radioactive solution and waited
until it was carried into the stems
and leaves. They detected phos-
phorus in the bark. But even
though the moss was attached to
the bark, it didn't take up any of
the radioactive compound. So, it's
obvious that, ball moss does not
take .nutrients directly from its
host plant. .
There have been suggestions
that ball moss causes oak trees
to decline simply by shading out
sunlight. However, ball moss usu-
ally grows deep within the tree
canopy, where it causes very little
shading of healthy leaves.
There does seem to be a re-
mote possibility that ball moss
could indirectly cause thinning of
an oak canopy. When rain passes

branches, it can wash away nu-
trients. Normally these fall to the
soil, where the tree's roots take
them up again. If ball moss is
growing thickly enough, it might
intercept the nutrients before
they could be recycled. If this
happens, the nutrient loss could
cause some amount of decline.
However, having your trees
sprayed to kill the moss isn't nec-
essarily the best way to deal with
such a problem. Just give the
trees enough fertilizer. This will
offset any effects of nutrient inter-
ception, allow the tree canopy to
grow thicker, and gradually re-
duce the amount of ball moss
without chemical sprays.
So, ball moss is not a para-
site on oak trees. It shouldn't
cause any problems for otherwise
healthy trees. And, if it shows up,
you don't have to worry about it.

"Love" by Beau Ludlam,
Love is a nice thing. I love my
mama, my daddy and my little
sister Hope. Sometimes I get mad
at them like last night when Hope
bit my tongue and I got mad at
her. But sometimes it ain't so bad
like when Hope will pucker up
and I' will held her and she will
lay on my shoulder. But I love

The annual middle school Valentine's Dance is this Friday from
6:30-9:30. Sponsored by the NHS, the admission is $2 each (Gold
Cards are accepted). The usual school dance rules will be in effect,
plus dress-up attire is requested. Parents are invited to attend and
assist as chaperones. The dance is for Wewahitchka middle school
students only. In other words, they must be middle school students
from Wewahitchka middle school. No visitors.
A recent survey supposedly conducted on the national level in-
dicated that alcohol use and drug use at the Jr./sr. high level is
again on.the increase. Parentsneed to be concerned about this, be-
cause our students are not immune to these problems. I don't think
any of our students were polled, but if they had been, some parents
might be surprised at'the answers. There is quite a bit of underage
drinking that takes place, especially on weekends, if you can judge
by what you hear students discussing. Since alcohol seems to be
readily accessible, it seems that parents would notice when their
student, has been drinking-providing they notice their student's
activities. If you don't object to this type of activity, or if you con-
done it, that's your family business. But if you do. not want your
son or daughter drinking and running the risks it brings, please.
talk to your student--let him/her know how you feel about it before
it happens. I can assure you that sooner or later they will be con-
fronted with the issue, and the decision they make can have far-
reaching effects on their lives and yours. The old "it's just part of
growing up" attitude is unfortunately an open invitation.to disaster.

THE: STAR, PORT ST. JOE. FL TH&IRSDAY, FEB. 10,'1994
By Jack Harper
One of the interesting votes that will come in the Florida Senate this
session is whether to uphold the special committee that recommended to
reinstate Hernando County School Board member Diane Rowden, who
was removed by Gov. Lawton Chiles for violating the state's Sunshine
It'll be fascinating, mainly because it will be an exercise in con-
science by the 20-20 split Democrat-Republican Senate, which I think
has one (conscience, that is) and surprisingly seems to be using it at
times. :. -
Sen. President Pat Thomas, D-Quincy, said at the Friday panel hear-
ing that it was very likely that the full Senate would follow the panel's
recommendation that first has to go before the full Rules Committee. If
they do, Diane Rowden will be reinstated and given back pay in the
school board post she won in 1990.
Her crime, folks, was that shq arrogantly broke the open meetings
law by discussing school business through private phone calls and con-
versations with other school board members. She shouldn't have done it,
but the fact is, all of the school board members were cited by a grand
jury for Sunshine violations. Rowden was the only one removed by
Her removal, perhaps, had something to do with the fact that she
was the only school board member who refused to appear before the
grand jury. She pleaded no contest and was found guilty on one misde-
meanor charge. The other board members-Susan Cooper, Paul Clem-
ons, Nancy Gordon, and Leland McKeown-pleaded no contest, too, but
judgements of guilt were withheld and none were removed from office.
Rowden, removed Feb. 1993, sued Chiles, claiming he could suspend
her, but only the Senate could remove her. The Florida Supreme Court
agreed with her.
Described as feisty and stubborn by witnesses and of plotting to use
the Sunshine Law against other members of the board herself, Rowden
was sobbing and humble after the hearing Friday. She said she had
learned her lesson, would respect the law, and not do it again.
Sen. Fred Dudley, R-Cape Coral, said it "takes two to tango" and It
was,apparent from the evidence that other school board members were
'involved. "If the state is going to remove officials for breaking the law,
let's be even-handed about it." Dudley said. He also said the school board
attorney was present during some of the violations charged to Rowden.
Sen. Daryl Jones., D-Miami, and Sen. Patsy Kurth, D-Palm Bay,
argued for Rowden's removal on grounds there was indisputable evidence
she had broken the law. However, another Democrat, Sen. Rick Dantzler,
Winter Haven, showed compassion by voting not to uphold the removal
with. Republican Senators Dudley, John MNcKay of Bradenton, and Rober-
to Casas of Hialeah.
Rowden is a Democrat from Spring Hill, a political novice, and in
need of some compassion.
Dantzler and the three Republicans on the special six-member panel
did the right thing, says this old reporter. The senators know all about
the Sunshine Law, how easy it is to violate and how hard it is to enforce.
Whatl[ An old reporter in the news media doesn't want to hang a
public official for violating the open meeting law? Yes, that's right. The
reason? I don't really get too upset with public officials unless they try to
steal money. Lord knows, we've got enough of them trying to do that to
keep us journalists busy forever. Rowden did not steal money.
t know that Richard Shelton, executive director of the Florida Press
Association, said the committee sent a message that the Sunshine Law is
To that. I say let's not make it important by singling out a little mis-
guided woman crusader who thought she could whip the entrenched es-
tablishment with her own little illegal methods. Gov. Chiles was wrong in
trying to remove her with an executive order. He should have sent it to
the Senate for a full hearing in the first place. He wasn't elected to be the
Judge ar. 1y-ofl other-otfice-holders:-Who does he-think he is? -
The St-' point is that the Sunshine Law violations-talking about
public business in private-have so many shades of gray that it is difi-
cult for at least this old reporter to get too excited about them. Rowden. I
believe after hearing some of the testimony, was not running what we in
the trade call a "smoke-filled backroom."
FLORIDA LEGISLATORS are betting on an expanding economy to
keep them from "biting the bullet" and passing an unpopular tax in-
crease during the election-year session that begins Feb. 8.
Both Senate President Pat Thomas, 'D-Quincy, and House Speaker
Bo Johnison. D-Milton, said last week they do not expect lawmakers will
pass new taxes and Gov. Lawton Chiles has not proposed any tax hikes
in his suggested $36 billion budget.
Crime Is the biggest issue, according to the legislative leaders and
the governor. Among the proposals are revamping of the juvenile justice
system, building prisons to require felons to serve more of their sentenc-
es, and keeping middle schools open longer with programs to keep
youths off the streets.
The legislature is expected to debate several expensive proposals to
fund the crime programs, including a one cent sales tax hike (about $1.8
billion) suggested by Insurance Commissioner Tom Gallagher and Sen.
Ron Silver, D-North Miami Beach. A coalition of judges and law enforce-
ment agencies support a half cent sales tax hike for the same purpose
contended that some $900 million it would raise would be enough.
The top issue after crime is expected to be the environment with a
concerted drive under way to put more state muscle behind restoration
of the Everglades.
The governor, legislative leaders, and many House and Senate mem-
bers are keeping their Options open by not ruling out a tax increase en-
tirely. They say they will wait until the specific proposals come up. I
CAMPAIGN CHEST. That could be the title for the move that so far
unannounced gubernatorial candidate Tom Gallagher made last week
when he announced a petition campaign for a one cent sales tax consti-
tutional amendment for more prisons.
Insurance Commissioner Gallagher denies that he was trying to get
around the limits on campaign spending (after all, he isn't even a candi-
date yet), but that is what setting up "Citizens for a Safe Florida" neatly
does. He can travel around the state making tough-on-crime speeches in
support of the constitutional amendment without violating the $500-per-
donor campaign limit and the $5 million cap on campaign spending un-
dei a Florida law, sponsored by guess who-Gov. Lawton Chiles.
The move comes just when Chiles thought he had checkmated the
Republican candidates facing him in the fall election this year. The sce-
nario Democrats like is one in which Chiles' Republican challengers
spend most of their campaign dollars in the primaries against each other,
then have the winner be short of money in the runoff.
Gallagher said his goal is to help people get the initiative on the bal-
lot because it is important to them. He has not as yet entered the govern-
or's race or announced as a candidate for re-election to the Florida Cabi-
net. It will take 430,000 voter signatures to put the amendment proposal
on the ballot.
The drive could give him a list of supporters and potential donors if
he decides to run.
DRESS CODE. Sounding like a parent and a politician, Florida Edu-
cation Commissioner Doug Jamerson is urging dress codes for students
because he thinks it will boost achievement and safety in public schools.
He can't order the uniform codes, of course. Present laws allow
county school boards-even schools themselves-to set the codes, which
many throughout the years have done. He just pushed the idea while
meeting with reporters on his legislative expectations last week.
Jamerson made his suggestion after his son, 11, asked for a $150
pair of sneakers and he said "no".
Parents and teachers generally like the idea, but school administra-
tors who have to enforce it don't. Jamerson said a code would make it
easy to detect outsiders who come on campus to "prey on the students".
WELFARE LIMITS. Republican Secretary of State Jim Smith said
he'd push for a one-year limit on Aid to Families with Dependent Chil-
: dren if he is elected governor in order to save some $1.3 billion in state
money to go to programs putting welfare recipients back to work.
Gov. Lawton Chiles has called for spending $31 million next year on
Sa program to help those on welfare to get jobs and the legislature last
year set up pilot programs in Galnesville and Pensacola that would give
the poor more training, but cut off welfare payments in two years.
Smith said he'd urge spending more than $93 million on the Project
Independence program, using money saved by his one-year time limit on
