Two Trucks, Boat, Trailer Damaged
It was spectacular to look at, but nobody was hurt when a
1994 Chevrolet pick-up truck slammed into a boat and a
1976 Chevrolet pick-up truck, parked on the west side of
Monument Avenue near the Third Street intersection Sunday
night. The boat and pick-up truck were owned by Black's Is-
Patrolman Troy Simmons, investigating officer, said the
1994 pick-up was travelling south on Monument Avenue at
9:50 p.m. Sunday night, driven by Terri Brown, 36, of 701
16th Street at approximately 35 miles per hour. A boat and a
1976 Chevrolet pick-up were parked beside the road and
Brown's vehicle hit the two conveyances from the rear.

Mexico Beach Park Awarded Grant
Thanks to a $50,000 grant
from the Florida Department of
Environmental' Protection (DEP),
the City of Mexico Beach is look-
ing forward to a new landscape at
the Mexico Beach Park.
City officials were advised
earlier this week by Don Getei-
sen, chief of the Bureau of Local
Recreation Services, Division of
'Recreation and Parks, that the
'grant funded through the Florida
Recreation Development Assis-
tance Program submitted in Octo-
ber had been approved.
In early fall, city officials
named the Chipley community
development firm of Julian Webb
& Associates to file the grant.
The grant is no cost to the
City of Mexico Beach, meaning
the entire amount comes from
state coffers and there is no
matching money put in from the
A committee was named last
year to iron out the necessary
items for the park, and public in-
put was then gained by discuss-
ing the idea with members of var-
ious civic organizations.
Once these decisions were
made,' members of the Webb Firm
were notified to make application
requesting a number of improve-
ments, including a playground,
trail, and picnic area.
City officials indicate they are
eager to begin the renovations
and construction and hope to
have, significant improvements in
place before the summer months
and the heavy use of the park be-

To Purchase Waterfront Tract
On St. Joesph Bay, Fourth St.
Port St. Joe may be in line to acquire more waterfront prop-

of Preble-Rish. to the City Commission at their meeting Tuesday
night. About a year ago. the Commission was the target of over-
tures. offering the old Maddox home site on the shore of St. Jo-
seph Bay, an area of some 3.4 acres. The City couldn't afford the
asking price at the time.
Rish told the Board Tuesday the State Department of Com-
munity Affairs had approved a grant to purchase the property.
Rish said the amount wasn't stipulated with the final decision to
be made after the property is appraised by a professional ap-
praiser. 'Then, if the appraisal is too high, in the opinion of the
DCA, they may still turn the grant down," Rish said. 'They have
an idea about what the property should be worth and won't go
over it," Rish said.
The Commission agreed Tuesday night to get an appraisal of
the waterfront property and a legal survey in preparation to re-
ceiving the grant funds for the purchase.
The property is located at the end of Fourth Street. and lies
between Fourth and Third Streets on the shore of St.' Joseph
UNTREATED WASTE COMPLAINT
A complaint was filed with the Commission Tuesday. against
Bay St. Joseph Care Center allegedly allowing wash water from a
clean-up facility to get into the storm drain, when it should be
going into the sanitary sewer.
Sue Lewis, owner of a house adjoining the rear of the care
center's property, said the water run-off is causing an odor and
potential hazardous situation in the open ditch between the fa-
cility and homes in the vicinity. 'They wash off wheel chairs,
beds and other equipment in a concrete "stall" behind the cen-
ter. Human feces and other wastes get into the storm sewer,
rather than the sanitary sewer and cause all kinds of foul odors
for the neighbors," she charged.
Mayor Frank Pate said the Commission hbaA r.cived,. -
" 'c i complaint a ToTUpleoye arsa0go, but that the care center ad"
taken care of the problem. "However, if your complaint is valid,
we need to get it taken care of immediately. We'll have the
Health Department go by and inspect the facilities in the morn-
ing and we'll test the out-fall water in the ditch for impurities,"
Commissioner Johnny Linton verified the odorous situation
Mrs. Lewis was complaining about and said, "We need to check
this oat immediately."
PROBLEMS WITH PLAY CENTER
Several residents of north Port St. Joe were at Tuesday's
meeting, complaining about a disturbance caused by a party
held in the Washington Recreation Center Saturday night, which
brought out all the policemen and Sherilffs deputies on duty.
Commissioner Charles Tharpe said he was called to the distur-
bance also and adamantly stated, "We can't have that kind of ac-
tivities ir) the Center in the future if it's going to end up such as
Commissioner Johnny Linton said, "We can remedy that
problem right now by refusing to allow Amy Shackleford to use
the building. Every time she uses it we end up with something
like this. We don't have that problem with other people who use
it." The residents in the audience gave vocal approval of Linton's
statement, including several members of the Washington Recre-
Commissioner Edwin Williams asked, "What are adults doing
using a youth facility anyhow? What is it doing, still open at
2:00 in the morning, when this fracas was reported to have hap-
The Board was unanimous in their action to ban Shackleford
from use of the building.
Several other minor items came before the Commission for
their action. One of these was the opening of bids to hire a firm
to do the concrete work to make City buildings accessible to
those In wheel chairs. Ramps will be constructed at the Centen-
nial Building, City Hall, Fire Station and park facilities. Included
in the work will be the renovation of rest rooms to meet govern-
ment standards for handicapped persons. J. T. Wood was
awarded the contract at a rate of $48.00 per hour.
Public Works Superintendent Frank Healy was instructed to
repair three fire hydrants in the downtown section which Fire
Chief John Ford said were not working. The hydrants are on
Third Street at the Monument Avenue, Williams Avenue and
Long Avenue intersections. Healy said their were problems with
working on the three hydrants as they didn't have cut-off valves,
but that he would devise a way to replace the inoperable fire

Mediocrity's Reward i
L Hunker Down with Kes
by Kesley Colbert
PLANS HAVE SURFACED for giving the Post Office a reward
for mediocrity in the form of a raise in rates. This will enable the
non-profit corporation to continue to reward sloppy service with
some of the highest pay of any blue collarjob in the nation.
SEven the Post Office workers cringe when someone talks
'about quality of service, or fleetness of delivery, or accuracy of
The Post Office is its own worst enemy. Anyone sending prod-
ucts which must reach their destination in a given amount of
time is smart: to use alternatives to the U.S. Mail service. It
hasn't always been this way. There was a time when the Postal
Service delivered-mail quickly,, accurately and at a reasonable
price. Then something went wrong and these attributes van-
IF A 10% INCREASE in the postal rates would bring back
the quality of service we once had before people started messing
with it, we would all gladly pay the increase. It has been our ex--
perience,' however, that each time an increase is obtained the
service deteriorates even more.
The local office does fine. It's after the mail gets out of their
hands that. the problem begins. We firmly believe that one of
these problems is the practice of sending every piece of mail to
an out-of-town location to cancel the stamps and send it on its
way into oblivion.
WE'LL GIVE AN EXAMPLE of how things have gone to pot.
Back in the 50s and early 60s, we owned and printed the Chat-
tahoochee News. Our editor in Chattahoochee would gather up
all her news, advertising and anything else. that went in the
paper and put it in the Post Office by 6:00 in the evening. The
next morning, by 8:00 a.m. we would have it in our hands and
prepare it for the paper.
Today, vwe w6uld never take the chance of placing our origi-
nal copy in the mail to Chattahoochee, or anywhere else, to ar-
rive at its location the next morning. Chances are, it wouldn't
make it. But, if we could count on its being at its destination, on
time, we would cast our vote for the 10% increase in the postal
rate for the better service.
YOU COULD HAVE searched the world over and wouldn't
have found two more worthy men to receive the "Men of the
Year" award, presented by the Chamber of Commerce last week.
We feel that had it been put to a vote, the vote would have been
Actually, the two doctors have been providing us unselfish
service for over 40 years each. That's a record for any city to ap-
preciate in a doctor. Both Dr. Joe Hendrix and Dr. Wayne Hen-
drix have always been there for anyone who needed their servic-
es. We don't believe they have ever put anyone in the small
claims court to collect an unpaid bill.
MAYOR FRANK PATE remarked they had served as emer-
gency room doctors at no cost to the hospital until they just-
physically could not serve anymore. We were on the Municipal
Hospital board of directors when that time came and we remem-
ber their reluctance to give the practice up, even when their own
physical condition demanded it.
N o ,any people know of'the "arrangements" which went on
when one of the doctors wanted to leave town for a day or two.
They took it upon themselves to check with each other to make
sure a physician would be on.call, due to their absence:
NEITHER OF THE TWO doctors have neglected their train-
ing either. They have kept abreast of all the chafiges in their spe-
cialty which is family practice. They rhay be adding a few years
to their portfolio but their medical knowledge is today!
Today's method of medicine tends to specialize-many proce-
dures, such as major surgery, but we're here to tell you there
are more than a few people who have lived long fruitful lives in
Port St. Joe because of their surgical skill. Our own son still has
perfect use of a hand which was mangled in an accident, due to
the surgical skill of Dr. Joe Hendrix.
'TODAY, THESE DOCTORS use their knowledge of surgery
to point their patients to the very best in the area,
We realize these two men have been paid for their service to
the people of Port St. Joe. They charge for their services and
they send out bills, but they are both a special breed of physi-
cian who doesn't specialize in collecting money., They specialize
in healing people, and taking care of their physical needs.
- At the awards dinner last Monday, special notice was given
to the fact that Dr. Wayne Hendrix had delivered 2,500 babies
during his tenure here. That's a remarkable feat, taking into
consideration neither'doctor has delivered a baby in 20 years!
We applaud their selection as "Men of the Year"! However, we
believe that plaque should read, "Men of A Half Century!"
Nothing Dainty About These Girls
I went to a Valentine's Ban-
quet Monday night that I actually
enjoyed. I think, what really
helped was. I didn't have to worry;
about getting a date. And it was
nice of them not to serve coldi
roast beef, cold, lumpy mashed
potatoes, cold green beans and.
cold, brick-bat hard dinner rolls
with those little. things on top
that get stuck in your teeth. The
speaker was actually entertaining,
and they didn't hold this thing in
the-basement of the church.
I had to look around two or
three times to make sure I was at
a Valentine's Banquet.
No one looked awkward or
out of place. The young people
came in laughing and left the
same way. Some had dates and
some didn't. Nobody seemed to'
care much one way or the other.
You could just tell-they came
with the Intention of having a
good time. What a great attitude!
Listen, ALL the girls were speak-
ing to each other.
I got to thinking how right
these young people were about
this Valentine's thing-and how
wrong I did it for years.
Course. Mary E. Pendleton
asked me to go with her even
time. That could ruin most any
banquet before it got off the
ground. Shed pull me over first
day back at school after the
Christmas vacation. "Kes,. don't
forget the Valentine's Banquet is
the 14th. I think it's such a won-
derful tradition that we always go
together. Mother said shed take
me to Memphis to get my dress-"
I could t think of nothing to
say. Well. actually I, wanted to
yell, "Mary E., you idiot, we're fif-
teen years old! You can't be 'a tra-
dition' in only fifteen lousy years.I'
But Mary E. was about like that
stone wall behind the tennis
court. Words were kinda wasted
You had to "take a date" back
in those days. It was a "sweet-"
heart" banquet. And if you didn't
have a "sweetheart", some kind
soul in the church would be only
too happy to spot you one up.
And you had to go, remember
that? It was some kind of church
law, I think.
"Mother, I don't think I'll go
this year. I didn't enjoy it last-"
"Nonsense. It will be, loads of
fun. The folks have worked hard.

to wear Leon's, again. It was, as I'
remember back, the only white

the cuff up one time and pin it so
it would just hang down to the
middle knuckle on my first finger.
and she d gather the slack up in
the collar and hide it' under-
neath my tie. You ever try to get
down cold, stringy roast beef with
a restricted Adam's apple? ,
The basement of the church,
smelled like--well. the basement
of a church., I don't know who
painted the Eiffel Tower but they
always got it tilted to-the right. It
looked more like a pointed,. Lean-
ing Tower of Pisa with lots of win-
dows.. And ',Mrs.. Coleman and
Mrs. 'Hartsfield had the; worst
French accents I've ever heard.

By Wesley Ramsey
THE EXAMINATION of the
long-discarded tools and materi-
als before they are either stored,
put up for sale or thrown away
has caused our staff to ask a host
of questions. It never occfirred to
me that since they were last used
nearly 25 years ago, our printers
now can legitimately look at these
strange tools and ask incredu-
lously, "What's that How could
you use that in printing?"
They have all been trained
under the offset printing method.
They know nothing of the .hot
type method and strike-on print-
ing, rather than the kiss impres-
sion printing of a photo process
produced image plate against 'a
rubber blanket and then "offset"
onto the ,sheet of paper being
IT WAS QUITE A revelation.
The heavy, precision-made mate-
rials used by the old method, as
opposed to the light, almost deli-
cate materials used today. They
walked up to a double rack type
case, sitting along the back wall,
with the type still inside, and
said, "Pick up that end and let's
just shove it out of the way."
Well, that isn't the way it's
done. You take the drawers of
type out, one by one, andi then
,,you get a roller bar and slip un-
der the cabinet and inch it along.
We had a couple of tons of
old type metal tucked here and
!? there in containers, waiting on a
slack day to melt it down and
pour it into ingots.
Luckily, the old melting pot
in the back room was still hooked
up for just such an occasion as
this and the men started melting
type metal, old rules, scrap lino-
type slugs and stored printing
forms. They spent all day long re-
ducing this work of years to metal
ingots. When I told them we had
to do this every week in the hot
metal days, they almost gave me
back part of their paycheck for
making the work so easy today.
YOU WOULD BE surprised at
the tools and supplies we had
stored in the back room, in type
cases, galley cabinets and under.
make-up stones which we never
use any more.
Nobody could- even guess
what a type-high gauge was when
we found one. A printing machin-
ery and supply salesman has
dibss" on one of our old compos-
ing type sticks. The work of sever-
al days in .casting leads 'and'
slugs-hot metal spacing materi-
al-was done away with. Number-
ing machines, which cost me an
arm and a leg when they were
purchased were relegated to. the
museum we hope to tef up in the
near future from these old relics
of a printing method'now gone.
.There were things with such
strange-sounding- names as
quoins,- chases, galleys, sticks,
quads, 'line gauges, ding-bats,
furniture, reglets, cuts, space
trays, planing blocks, gauge pins..
.. .. Nobody but me knew what
they were and how they were
There were three type cases
still full of type and space materi-
al. We saved it for the first several
years in case of emergency. I
didn't trust this new-fangled stuff
which operated by computer,
photography, mixing ink with wa-
ter .. ..who ever heard of such a
thing? Ink is made of a petroleum
base. It shouldn't mix with water.
The new machines depended on
this phenomenon to get its print-
ing work done. So, why should, I
.depend solely 0on something to
turn out printing which used two
main ingredients which weren't
..compatible with each qther?
THE TRIAL PERIOD is now
over. We're 'sawing the old letter-
press limb off behind us and
abandoning tried and true meth-
. :ods invented by. the Chinese and
,Mr. 'Gutenberg back about the
'15th century.for a printing meth-
od which is even more mysterious
than the old system could ever
have been. It has taken a long
'time to cut these ties; a period of
finding out we didn't really need

My Favorite Obituary
When my favorite uncle died a couple of years ago, I literally
dreaded going to his funeral. Uncle Comer and I were close and I

of them would be, mine.
The funeral service, however, turned out to be something more
than just a mourning time" for all those in attendance, thanks to
one of the preachers who was commissioned to deliver a eulogy., He
spent most of his time telling funny stories about Uncle Comer; sto-
ries everyone could relate to. It was a fond time of remembering
some of the wonderful things about Uncle Comer.
I made that preacher promise to preach my funeral if I died be-
fore he. He promised he would.
Let's face it, folks, we have all got to face that music one day
and, in my opinion, I would rather leave a bunch of folks laughing,.
remembering some of the silly, foolish things I did than have them
all commit "sideways", as my Uncle Rabone so aptly.put it.
.In the past few years I have made it a habit to read the obituary
column each -day. The reason is sometimes I find some of my
friends' names in there and I want to know about it. Another reason
I read it each morning is I want to make sure my name's not in
This brings me to the point of this article: My favorite obituary.
I was reading the paper on February 6, 1994, and I come across a
name that for some reason unknown to me. caught my eye. I read it
in detail although I had no idea who the man was and don't to this
day. A'few minutes later I. went back to it and read it again. Then it
began to make sense. Rather, none of it made sense, although I'm
sure the.man was a living human being and did in fact die.
The name was Milton A. Wolf, and he resided in Panama City.
The obituary started: "Milton Arthur Wolf passed away at his home
on Friday, Feb. 4, not long after his 168th birthday.' On my first
reading, I passed his ageoff as a misprint. After the second and
third reading, I became aware that it wasn't a misprint at all, as.
you will see as you read on. '
The'column stated, "He founded three companies, and recently-
received an honorary degree as Doctor of Scatatology. He was also a
founding member of the American Kakological Society, and its first

Dear Mr. Ramsey:
From the Gulf County 911
Committee, thank you very much
for your editorial article in last
week's The Star concerning the
development of Gulf County's 911
System. Thank you for your per-
sonal support for the 911 System.
and for keeping the general pub-
lic informed of the Committee's
progress in developing this 911'.
Our projected date for turn-
ing on the 911 System is October
1,.1994. Thus far. our funds have
come from the $.50 per month
telephone line surcharge and
from State grants. The 911 Com-
mittee was recently, successful in
obtaining another grant for the
purchase of this System. The' to-
tal amount received thus far from
grant funds is $126,026.63.'. It is
our hope and intent that we will
be able to pay for Gulf County's
911 System without the use of Ad
Valorem tax money. -
There is a. lot of work which
, must be accomplished between
now and when -the 911 System is
turned on. Currently, Mr. Mar-
shall Nelson, the new 911 Coordi-
nator, is working on all of the
Street/Road Names, House Num-
bers, Block Numbers, and the
Computer Database of the, 6,000
(plus) telephones in Gulf County.
Hopefully, on October 1,. 1994. we'
will turn on a fully computerized
911 System which will serve the-
people of Gulf County.

Making Home Ownership A Reality
By Judy. Corbus
Many people dream of owning
their own home. Having a place
that you can truly call your own
gives a sense of security and
"roots." It also is a form of invest-
ment, especially if the property
increases in value over a period of
years. However, for some, home
ownership is a goal that seems
out of reach.
Throughout this year, I will
be taking you, the reader,
through the home-buying pro-
cess. I will cover such topics as
what to look for in a house, pre-
qualifying for a loan, closing on a
home purchase, and home main-
tenance. This column will cover
come of the topics that will be
presented in ,the SHIP (State
Housing Initiatives Partnership)
home-buyer education classes.
The first step towards owning
your own home is deciding how
much house you can afford.
Americans spend. from 21 to 54
percent of family income on hous-
ing. The "amount" of house a
family can afford depends largely
on three .factors: -The amount of
take-home pay the family can re-
alistically expect. -The family's
living costs and other debt pay-
ments. -The total amount of
housing expenses, including
mortgage payments,: taxes, insu-
rance, utilities, furnishings,
maintenance, and management
fees if you live in a condominium
or planned development such as
a trailer park..
Ideally, housing should make
up no more than 30% of a fami-
ly's budget, although some fami-
lies often must pay more due to
circumstances. Two guidelines to
follow when figuring how much
house you can afford are: -~
Principal, interest, taxes, and in-
surance (PITI) should not exceed
5 25 to 29 percent of gross income
S(before taxes). (This, will be dis-
Scussed further in a future col-
umn.) -PITI plus other long-term
debt should not exceed 33 to 41
percent of gross income.
Long-term debt includes car
and installment loans, credit card
balances: that will take longer
than 10 months to repay, and ali-
mony and child support. The
above two guidelines are used by
most lenders in deciding how
large a mortgage to grant. By re-
Sducing debt, especially credit
card balances, many families can
put themselves in a better posi-
tion to purchase a house.
For example, Family A and
Family B&each have a gross annu-
al income ofL$15.000. Family A
pays $100 per month .in .credit.
* card payments; Family B,. $300
per month. Each family would
like to buy a house so they go to
the bank to see how much house
they can afford. Using a formula
that takes into account a person's
debt load, the lender calculates
that Family A qualifies to pur-
chase a house priced up to
1`$50,749, while Family B only
qualifies for a house priced up to
.; $21,790. A difference of $200 per
; month in credit payments makes
a big difference In the amount of
house for which a person can
qualify to purchase
If one of your goals is to pur-
chase a home, begin now to see
where you can cut back on ex-
penses and save money. Each lit-
tle bit adds up and can put you
ion your way to buying that

However, the investors found
out soon that Apalachicola Bay
wasn't deep enough to handle the
new steel-hulled schooners which
were in common use along the
Gulf coast and to South America.
So, the line was extended to Port
St. Joe in 1910.
The railroad served the lum-
ber, naval stores and fishing
business all along its line to
Chattahoochee. Passenger service
also furnished a great deal of in-

years the new line flourished.
It was soon extended to Cli-

Pippin Undergoes Brain Surgery By Robot
Rudy Pippin 'of Wewahitchka
experienced his first epileptic sei-
zure on Thanksgiving day of
1993. It was the first ever in his
life and 'to say the last, it scared
Pippin half to death. After con-
sulting his primary care physi-
cian, he was referred to the Uni-
versity of Alabama Medical
Center in Birmingham for a spe-
cialist's opinion, of its cause.
;On' December 7, ,he under-
went .a stereotactic biopsy. The
diagnosis was a form of brain tu-
mor called a glioma. Since then,
he has undergone radiosurgery
and radiation therapy, which is
progressing well. He returned
home on January 31 and'will re-
turn to UAB for a CT scan in a
couple of weeks.
What makes this story unu-
sual isn't that Pippin had a brain
tumor it isn't because Pippin; a
.native of [lalkeith has been a
plant supervisor at Arizona
Chemical for 37 years and was
formerly a Gulf County Commis-
sioner. What makes this story un-
usual is that his surgery was ac-
complished by a. robot and
computer, .at UAB.
Doctors load data from the
patient's CT scans, MRI's and ar-
teriography into a computer to re-
construct the neural anatomy"
and the location of the lesion. Be-
fore performing any surgery, doc-
tors simulate various 'what if
scenarios, into the computer.
This is the only neurosurgery
clinic in the region using the Op-
erating Arm, without a traditional
head frame, for precise localiza-
tion for planning and executing
neurosurgical cases with mini-
mum cerebral invasion.
To perform stereotactic crani-
al surgery, surgeons couple the
multi-jointed Operating Arm to a
computer. Once the patient is in
the desired position, the Arm is
calibrated using landmarks on
the patient's head-including the
nose, ears, or scalp mai-kers. The
Arm, which is equipped with sen-
sors at each of its joints, "talks"
to the computer sitting in the op-
erating room. The computer cal-
culates the angles of the joints
and locates the tip of the Arm

The Capitol News Roundup:
With an apparent truce on new taxes (there'll be none) and a general
agreement to build enough prisons to make criminals serve more of their
time, the.60-day session of the Florida Legislature this election year
doesn't promise much fireworks.
There probably will not even be a death penalty debate. All candi-
dates nowadays either favor or accept it. In fact, the real changes in gov-
ernment and laws that affect people will perhaps come after the session
is over in constitutional amendment proposals that will be on the Novem-
ber ballot. That debate and vote, may be a bench mark of change for
Florida, a phenomenon already.marked by term limits and a cap on prop-
erty tax increases that have already passed and now await in the wings.
Old legislature watchers welcome the upcoming no-fireworks session
(famous last words maybe) because it gives the lawmakers an opportuni-
ty to really do some work on the underlying problems of Florida. Most of
them are capable, may know what is wrong, and just maybe collectively
they'll do something about it.
Freshmen Sen. Charles Williams, D-Tallahassee, who heads the Se-
lect Senate Committee on Governmental Reform, is in a good position to
bring some sanity to what the people (according to the polls) feel is a run-
away government. The key is a bill to suspend any agency rule that a
committee of both houses feels violates Legislative Intent. Not many-such
suspensions are expected. Bureaucrats, who got away with padding their-
own empires in the past, will know it's there and not challenge the law.
The reform panel has other bills to reorganize agencies, bring some
reason to permitting and create some efficiency in merged agencies to do
a better Job on less money for the landowner and taxpayer.
Perhaps, legislators with taxes and crime out of the way will have
more time to spend on some good governmental reforms that always
seem to be left in the confusion over the big issues.
For instances, how much land should'government own in Florida?
Federal, state and county governments (don't even figure municipalities)
now own about 26 percent, according to the Florida Farm Bureau Feder-
ation. Current plans of water management districts, the Florida Game
and Fresh Water Fish Commission, and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
could up that to 64 percent.
It is pretty clear that government planners want governments to own
most of Florida, acquired of course, with taxpayer money. The Preserva-
tion 2000 program is one of the chief money mines, generating about
$300 million annually.
Acquisition of land is only the start. Management and upkeep are
just as expensive (in the long run more so). Government has never been
'known to manage property as well as individuals and government doesn't
Freshman Rep. Dean Saunders, D-Lakeland, a realtor, has devel-
oped a bill for the House Natural Resources Committee that would not
buy title to wetlands In Green Swamp in Lake and Polk Counties, but
purchase development rights, leaving the land in private ownership for
management and taxing. .
It's a novel method of protecting animal habitat and wetland re-
charge benefits-the usual purpose of government buys-at a much cheap-
er price to the taxpayer. It needs to-be given a chance to see if it works.
This legislature, if is has, time to function properly, could also come .
to understand the budget process, basing it not on history but on pro-
gram results and on experience gained from pilot programs.
One of the most Interesting is going to be the boot camps, where it
can be learned if youthful criminals can be turned around. Legislators
seem not just interested in locking 'em up and throwing away the key.
They really want to get away from just growing new criminals. Another is
the pilot programs in Alachua and Escambia counties, begun last year,
to get families off welfare as a way of life.
S- SPENDIiNG-PROPOSALS 4ROWtHtINTTAT TAX CAP -
Both liberals &fid conservatives were wheeling from shock at national
and state developments on the eve of the opening of the Florida Legisla-
ture this week.
Much of the debate In this session is to be on funding of prisons and
juvenile justice reform, but as the spending proposals grow so does the
chance for an historical cap on the ever growing state budget.
Gov. Chiles would fund his new prisons proposal by bond financing
which would postpone the necessity for new taxes until at least after this
-" But bills are ready for debate which would hike the sales tax a penny
or half cent to pay for prisons and juveniles justice reform, but as the
spending proposals grow, so do chances of a cap on prisons and juve-
niles justice reform, but as the spending proposals grow. so do chances
of a cap on taxes. Bills are filed that would limit the tax growth to the
growth of total personal income, require a statewide referendum anytime
lawmakers want to raise taxes, and cap tax increases to 90 percent of.
the growth of personal income.
Budget reforms are also high on the list of accomplishments the'.
House and Senate leadership wants to accomplish in this session. Led by
Senate President Pat Thomas, D-Quincy, the plan is to take the waste
out of state government, deliver more services economically, and create a
climate for businesses to bring more jobs to Florida. .
"We're at the start of a new way of doing budgets," Thomas said.

Brazil: Home of Inflation and Coffee
Max Aluzio Speaks to Rotary Club About His Native Land Last Thursday
The Rotary Club had an in-
teresting little fellow speak before
its members last Thursday. Max
Aluzio, a retired photographer
and a native of Brazil, told the
club of his former country.
First, Brazil isn't small. It is a
nation of 152 million people
which manufactures almost
everything it needs. "Almost every
automobile produced in the world
is manufactured in Brazil," he
said. By far the most popular is
the Volkswagen "Beetle", still
manufactured in the country and
used for everything from private
automobiles, and taxis to police
"Soccer' is very popular in
Brazil," he said. 'When I lived
there, it took me an hour and a
half to drive from one side of Rio
to the other, from my home to
work. On days when a champion-
ship soccer game was being
played, I could make the same
drive in 15 minutes because
there were no cars on the street.
Everybody was at the soccer
game," he said.
Brazil has the very poor and
the well-to-do. The middle class is
growing. So is the inflation. It is
now about 300% per year.
Eighty-one percent of its people
are literate and 90% are Catholic.
The nation is rich in coffee and
Aluzio said the nation pro-
- duces about 85% of the world's
coffee. Most of it is sold to the
A&P Tea Company, which distrib-
tites it world-wide under several
different brand names.
"Columbia, with its Juan Val-
dez, produces only about 10% of,
the world's coffee," Aluzio said.
;* .! *
The speaker said the nation
hasn't touched its lumber supply
yet. 'The world is alarmed at the
dwindling forests of Brazil. They
still have about 90% of their fo-
rests while the United States has
cut nearly 90% of its virgin fo-
rests, and they worry about Bra-
zil!" he said.
"The Piranha is not a danger-
ous fish, contrary to common be-
lief, here," Aluzio said. "I have
waded and swam regularly in
streams invested with Piranha
and didn't know they were killers,
until I came to the United States
and read National Geographic!"

to help them recover from the
prolonged drought that devastat-
ed many crops last year.
The U.S. Department of Agri-
culture (USDA) declared Calhotin.
Holmes and Washington counties
as primary disaster areas be-
cause of the drought. Farmers in"
. six contiguous counties-Bay,
Gadsden. Gulf. Jackson, Liberty,

J, Farmers in all nine counties ':
have eight months to apply for .
the loans through their local'
Farmers Home Administration of-
fice. To be eligible, they must
have suffered a 30'., loss of nor-
mal production, be unable to get
credit from other sources, have
adequate security, -and demon-
strate repayment ability.
The sustained heat wave that
was' particularly devastating last
July and August reduced produc-
tion of tobacco, soybeans, pea-
nuts and hay across North Flori-
da and much of the Southeast.

The thermometer may not
say so, but spring is not too far
away. It's time to start planning
your backyard vegetable garden.
What I am going to talk about
should sound familiar to experi-
enced gardeners. But, a brief re-
view shouldn't hurt anyone. I
hope it will help those trying veg-
etable gardening for the first
Nearly all vegetables can be
grown in Florida, if you plant
them in the right seasons. It's
even fun to try things like aspara-
gus, rhubarb, and globe arti-
chokes, although they really
aren't well adapted to our growing
conditions. The important thing
is to grow vegetables you and
your family enjoy.
The first consideration in
planning your garden is where to
put it. You want it fairly close to
your house, so it's handy to work
in. You want it near an outside
water faucet, so, that irrigation
Isn't a problem. But the thing-you
really want to be sure about is
proper light. If possible, locate the
garden so it gets full sunlight all
day. Unfortunately, few us us en-
joy that luxury.: So, we have to
choose between morning sun and
afternoon sun. Full sun in the
morning is better for vegetables
than full sun in the afternoon. In
any case, plant fruiting crops,
such as tomatoes, corn, cucum-,
bers, and melons, where they will-
get the most sun. Leaf and root
crops generally can stand a little

FPC's Nuclear Plant
Florida Power Corporation's Crystal River Nuclear Plant in 1993 com- .
pleted one of its best years ever during its 17 year history.
The 860 megawatt (million-watt) power plant operated at 84.5 per-
cent capacity during the year. Nuclear plant performance above 80 per-
cent is considered "world class" by industry observers.
The nuclear station completed a 54-day maintenance outage ahead ..y,
of schedule arid under budget last spring. Except for when the plant was .
out of service for planned maintenance it operated at or near fulL power ,'
for the rest of the year.
The performance of Florida Power's nuclear station ranked in the top

places, wild animals such as rab-
bits are a problem. A fence also
can serve as a trellis for pole

that need support.
In some cases, you'll also
have to protect your crops from
nearby tree and shrub roots,,

Of course, good soil is impor-.
tant. Unfortunately, as backyard
gardeners, most of us have to do
the best we can with the kind of
soil we have. However, we can
give out gardens a boost by mix-

like manure and compost. With
such supplements, we can grow

nothing but sand.
Before you ever plant the first

could walk into your garden cen-

differ in factors which can be vi-

Make it Meaningful
Anytime something needs to
be learned, the key is to make it
meaningful. That lesson has been
brought home to me since our
post office opened. Every year I
have dreaded teaching letter writ-
ing and addressing envelopes. I
always rationalized and said,
'Well, that's a skill that is devel-
opmental. They're just too
young." Not sol Now that they can
write letters, have them delivered,
and then receive mail, they are all
too ready to learn. Almost from
the first, the children caught on.
We love our new post office. One
kink-I've taught the children
that they should answer a letter
when it is received. I've about
worked myself to death at recess
and lunch answering my mail!

To nry surprise this week, I
found out just how many people
read this column on a regular ba-
sis. Sometimes I feel like I am
boring my readers with the same
:old format. So, if I may, I would
like to change it'up a bit; I'm not.
going to worry about, writing a
proper journalistic article, but I'm
going.to be less formal.
PRIDE Flag ',
You know of course that I will
announce the PRIDE flag honor-
ees, so let's go ahead and get that
out of the way. Jesse Colbert, my
recent fellow columnist, was hon-
ored with the little purple flag
during the first of the week for
his excellent PRIDE and spirit in
the championship round of the
Geography Bee. If you've been
keeping up with the Varsity bas-
ketball team, then you know
there must be a driving force be-
hind them-Coach Eppinette.
Coach Eppinette, who has some
350 career wins, was the PRIDE
-. flag honoree on Wednesday. The
next day, Kristy Bryant and Joey
Mastro were honored with the
flag for being chosen the 7th
grade Students of the Week. On
Friday, the Future Business
Leaders of America (FBLA) held a
successful dance to help raise
..- money to attend competitions.
The hard-working members, and
especially Davida Byrd, were
thanked with the PRIDE flag on
Friday for all the time and effort,
they put into pulling off a great
PRIDE Movie Shown
Moving to another -aspect of
the PRIDE program at the high
school, the PRIDE movie, which
is held each six weeks,, was
shown on Friday. This six weeks'
feature was Free Wtlly. For all you
parents out there, ask your child
if they qualified for the honor of
watching this movie. If not, ask
your children what they can do to
earn this honor, and ask your self
what you can do to encourage,
them to achieve it.
Again, the Sharks proved
they are the best team in the area
by winning three more games this
week. Tuesday, this winning-
prone team defeated one of the
better teams in the Tallahassee.
area, Godby. Godby, who defeat-
ed the Yarsity team in the season
opener, was sent back to Talla-
hassee with a loss of 71-65. Fri-
* day night, PSJ gave Wewa a hu-
Smiliating loss of 98-61. Saturday
night's game against Quincy-
Shanks was everything that was
expected out of this heated rival-
ry. A large, boisterous crowd
cheered the Sharks on against
the toughest defense PSJ has
seen all year. The district tourna-
ment is to be held at the Dome on
Friday and Saturday night. On
Saturday. the Sharks face the
winner of Friday's Blountstown
vs. Havana game. On Tuesday,
whether the Sharks win the dis-
trict championship game or not,
the sub-regional game will also be
held in the Dome. If the Sharks
win the district game, they could
possibly face Chipley. one of the
best teams in the Panhandle, in
the sub-regionals. The. team
needs the support of the whole
community. whether by words of
encouragement, or even better,
cheering and yelling at this
week's ball games.
The J.V. team won this week
as well. After a long losing streak.
the J.V. defeated Wewa 51-31.

use the power of attention to
change (shape) children's behav-
iors. Giving positive attenUon
(praising) Increases behaviors you
like and want more of. Removing
attention (ignoring) decreases be-
haviors you dislike and want less
of. The more positive attention
you give, the better things get.
